29 September 2014 10:41 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

He said, "I was in the studio with Lenny Kravitz, and he was doing something with Jay Z. . . . It was 'Change Clothes.'" As Denzel imitated Jay Z's laugh, Queen Latifah cracked up, saying, "That's exactly how he is!" Watch the funny interaction above, and then check out our interview with Denzel to hear what the actor had to say about his new action movie, The Equalizer. »

Watch Kerry Washington and Jimmy Fallon Try to Tell Better Lies Than Each Other

24 September 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Jimmy Fallon routinely belittles his own acting chops — so it must be a daunting task to try to lie better than a perennial Emmy nominee. But that's what he did Tuesday, when he challenged Scandal's Kerry Washington to a game of box of lies. Who came out on top? All we can say is spaghetti and a pumpkin were involved. Also watch Kate Hudson Beats Jimmy Fallon in 'Box of Lies'   On The Late Show, the world learned that Denzel Washington and Lenny Kravitz like to take boat trips together (who knew?).

Best of Late Night TV: Kerry Washington's 'Box of Lies,' Denzel Washington and Lenny Kravitz's Boat Trip (Video)

24 September 2014 12:22 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

"Scandal" star Kerry Washington and Jimmy Fallon tried to trick each other in a fun game called "Box of Lies." Weirdly enough, the line "In my box ... is a pumpkin with spaghetti in it..." was actually true! Also, it turns out Kerry is a big "Game of Thrones" fan. She started watching because her parents like it. She was planning to just make fun of them, but now she's a true GoT fan, and she even cooked her mom a GoT-themed dinner. Then some guy in the audience booed Jimmy because he's not caught up on the show.

At the end of the second video, Kerry shared a teaser »

Zoe Kravitz's New Look Will Definitely Make You Do a Double Take

23 September 2014 1:20 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Zoe Kravitz has been sporting a hot new look lately, and we can't help but notice how much she resembles her mom, Lisa Bonet, in her younger years. The Divergent actress was spotted shopping with a friend in La on Monday rocking a cropped sweater, ripped jeans, and the waist-length box braids that her mother helped make famous in the early '90s; almost 30 years ago, Lisa starred as the free-spirited Denise Huxtable on The Cosby Show (and later A Different World) and was married to Zoe's father, rocker Lenny Kravitz. Since then, Lisa - who is now married to Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa - has kept her supercool bohemian-chic hair and clothing, and it's obviously been passed down to Zoe. Her look will definitely make you do a double take; keep reading to see Zoe and her mom, Lisa Bonet, below. »

Whoa, Nelly: Here Is Danny Stripping on The Mindy Project Season Premiere

16 September 2014 10:03 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

After a long summer hiatus, The Mindy Project finally returned Tuesday night. Thankfully, viewers were rewarded for their months of patience: Danny and Mindy are still a happy couple, and their coupledom involves many wonderful things, such as getting to watch Danny — or, should we say, "Diamond Dan" (!) — perform an epic, hip-swiveling, pelvic-thrusting, let-me-just-fix-my-glasses striptease to the soundtrack of Lenny Kravitz's "American Woman." Monogamy has never looked so good. . »

Denzel Washington's Reddit Ama: The 10 Best Questions & Answers

5 September 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Not everyone can do a good Reddit Ama. Some people don't get the format or how to interact with fans or are just generally boring. Not Denzel Washington. He absolutely owned his Reddit Ama this afternoon, in anticipation of his upcoming film "The Equalizer," not just answering questions but expounding on them in detail. Here are our favorite tidbits from his Reddit. You can read the whole thing here.

On kicking all the butts in "The Book of Eli":

There were a lot of takes. We worked on those fight scenes for a month. They were well-choreographed, and in fact, there's one scene where i think I fight 15 different guys at once - we actually worked it so I could fight 15 guys at one time! I did ninety percent, I don't know what percent, my own stunts, the stuntmen didn't have to do as much, but that was mostly me. »

‘Holy Ghost’ Uses Kickstarter, Korn Guitarist to Attract Christian Millennials

4 September 2014 11:55 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Heavy metal and Christianity don’t often mix, yet Brian “Head” Welch, lead guitarist of Korn, is front and center in the new faith-based film “Holy Ghost.”

Welch’s involvement isn’t the only iconoclastic element of the Kickstarter-funded project. The film debuts digitally on Sept. 6 for free to anyone in the world who wants it. In addition to the lack of the price tag, Wanderlust Productions, the company behind “Holy Ghost,” will sponsor a live-streaming concert with Welch and Christian band Jake Hamilton & The Sound at California’s Redding Civic Auditorium.

“Christians unfortunately have been given a bad rap,” said Welch. “I’m excited for real people to be able to talk about faith and not scare people away from it. It’s all about love and meeting God and having our eyes opened.”

Welch has been outspoken in the past about how faith helped him kick his addictions to drugs and alcohol, »

"It's a huge disservice to young people to put shame into the equation. That’s what bothers me the most about it and why I speak so openly about sex," the Pitch Perfect star said. "I promote safe sex, always, and abstinence until you are madly in love. But at the same time I have no desire to shame any young person about what’s going on in their life or about general sexuality or their bodies."

Banks, who the magazine points out is one of a few "pretty girls" who "work their funny side," also »
