8 September 2014 12:26 PM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Cara Delevingne launched her music career in a ''dive'' bar in New York City over the weekend. How did it Go? The Burberry supermodel has delved into the world of music as she performed her first ever solo gig in a small establishment in New York. According to The Sun newspaper, Cara sang several original tracks along with a set of covers, which she performed acoustically in a ''dive pub''. The 22-year-old model was joined by Zoe Kravitz - daughter of the legendary rocker singer Lenny Kravitz - who is acting as Cara's mentor. The budding singer has already proved her skills as a drummer, after she played a surprise set at make-up artist Charlotte Tilbury's 'Makeup House of Rock 'N' Kohl' at Selfridges in June 2013.

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, »

Elizabeth Banks on why she's so open about sex.

Actress Elizabeth Banks, 40, recently chatted with New You magazine about everything from her widely varying film roles throughout her career to parenting and body issues, when she also got real about the topic of sex.

Specifically, that people shouldn't be ashamed of getting intimate.

Video: Elizabeth Banks Meets the Woman She Saved

"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 »

The Healthy Helpers: The Top 10 Movie Nurses

20 June 2014 2:42 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Now what would the medical profession be like without the dependable skills of nursing in cinema? Sure, the doctors get their lion’s share of representation in the movies but what about the nurses that serve them? What is so interesting about the portrayal of nurses in film is that they can be characterized beyond the compassionate medical maidens that the public associates them with on a whim. Motion pictures allow for big screen nurses to show some complexity beyond loving bedside manners and juggling bedpans. Cinematic nurses can be caring, comical, crazed, confused or corrupt.

Whatever the complication or consideration of these celluloid servers of health care rest assure that they are a glorified bunch in their devotion to the medical field. Whether flawed or favorable we will take a look at some of the top-notch nurses in film as cited in The Healthy Helpers: The Top 10 Movie Nurses. »

PopWatch Confessional: My Ya film heartthrobs are the dads

8 June 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

It began with The Twilight Saga and was officially driven home by this weekend’s The Fault in Our Stars: I have hit the age where the hottest guys in Ya movies are the dads.

Sure, I can recognize the puppy-dog cuteness of Ansel Elgort, the male-model broodingness of Robert Pattinson, and the six-packiness of Taylor Lautner. But for my money, Sam Trammell and Billy Burke (cop mustache and all) as Michael Lancaster and Charlie Swan, respectively, have them all beat. It probably helps that I was introduced to Trammell and Burke outside their patriarchal roles — Trammell in True Blood »

Angelina Jolie Facts: 33 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About the 'Maleficent' Star

30 May 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's hard to believe Angelina Jolie has been a fixture of Hollywood for almost 20 years now.

Ever since breaking out in the late '90s with a string of critically-acclaimed performances, the actress quickly established herself as an international star. Between headlining hits like "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" and directing passion projects like "In the Land of Blood and Honey," Jolie is perhaps the biggest Hollywood spokesperson of humanitarian efforts worldwide. This summer, however, Jolie can be seen taking a wicked turn in Disney's "Maleficent" -- a re-imagining of "Sleeping Beauty" from the villain's point-of-view.

From her Oscar-winning godfather to her curiosity with blood, here are 33 things you probably don't know about Angelina Jolie.

1. Jolie was born June 4, 1975 in Los Angeles to Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand, both actors.

2. The actress was born Angelina Jolie Voight, but she legally dropped her surname "Voight" in 2002.

3. She is the goddaughter of actress Jacqueline Bisset and actor Maximilian Schell. »

Birthday shoutouts go to Lenny Kravitz (above), who is 50, Genie Francis is 52, and the faboo Pam Grier is 66.

Lenny Kravitz Turns 50: A Look Back at the Rocker at 25

26 May 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Nowadays, Lenny Kravitz is a four-time Grammy winner who has sold more than 38 million records and is preparing to release his 10th studio album. But back in February 1990, Kravitz was Sassy magazine's "One To Watch." In honor of the "Fly Away" crooner's 50th birthday Monday, we dug up a vintage issue of the alt-teen mag, which profiled him at the age of 25. Kravitz, in the midst of promoting the Beatles-influenced album Let Love Rule, told Sassy, "People think I'm stuck in the '60s but I'm not at all. I mean, that was the last time when this sort of feeling [the whole peace-and-love thing] was happening. »

They've got a grip on love! Zoe Kravitz looks like she has found love again, stepping out for a stroll with designer-turned-deejay Noah Becker in New York City on Thursday afternoon. Kravitz, in a black blazer, casual T and black leather leggings, and Becker, 20, sipped on drinks as they walked hand in hand, stopping along the way for the actress to check her phone. Their romantic relationship may be fairly new, but the couple already have a history. The Divergent actress's dad, Lenny Kravitz, served as best man when Becker's mom, Barbara Feltus, married Belgian artist Arne Quinze. Becker's father is tennis legend Boris Becker. »

'The Voice' Recap: Kat Perkins Gets The #VoiceSave, Top 8 Announced In Live Eliminations

29 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

The Voice narrowed down its contestants to a Top 8, with Tess Boyer and Bria Kelly getting the boot and Kat Perkins receiving the #VoiceSave in this week’s live eliminations.

But first, the good news: Carson Daly opened the show with the announcement that Gwen Stefani and Pharrell would be coaching in season 7 alongside returning coaches Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, with Christina Aguilera rumored to be returning for Season 8 in the spring.

Team Usher kicked off the night with a group performance. Usher, Bria Kelly and Josh Kaufman sang Lenny Kravitz’s “Always on the Run.”

After their fun performance, the first round of saves is announced. From Team Adam, Christina Grimmie was declared safe. America’s votes saved Sisaundra Lewis from Team Blake, Kristen Merlin from Team Shakira and Josh Kaufman from Team Usher, so every coach still has an artist moving forward into next week’s live performances. »

Luc Besson on casting Scarlett Johansson as 'Lucy' and his philosophy of action

23 April 2014 10:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

My favorite moment during the Saturday afternoon panel I moderated for Universal's upcoming movie "Lucy" was when an audience member asked director Luc Besson if he'd be interested in directing a Marvel Studios movie about "Black Widow" starring Scarlett Johansson. "I am afraid of spiders," he answered, and then just looked at me, ready to move on to the next question. If you've seen the first trailer for the movie, you get the general idea. Besson says he started noodling with the idea a decade ago, the first time he heard someone mention that "we only use 10% of our brains" idea. "I know it is wrong," he said, "but I liked the idea and I just wanted to start there. What happens if we take a character from that 10% to 100%?" When Universal asked if I'd like to moderate the panel, it was an easy yes. After all, this isn't just »
