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

"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. »

20 May 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

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 »

'American Idol' Recap: Caleb Johnson Owns Country And Rock & Roll Night

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

American Idol’s top six contestants had to pick one country and one rock anthem to perform for Wednesday’s live show.

Jena Irene

Jena Irene was the first Idol-hopeful to hit the stage, taking on Heart’s “Barracuda.” Once again, the young singer brought her charisma and her unique vocals and wowed both the audience and the judges. Her performance convinced the judges that she could be the one to beat this year.

For her country song, Irene chose former Idol winner Carrie Underwood’s “So Small.” Instead of sticking to the song’s country melody, Irene reimagined it with her sometimes-haunting sound that completely blew resident country judge Keith Urban away.

Sam Woolf

Sam Woolf selected Imagine Dragon’s “It’s Time” for his rock song, which the judges agreed was a wise choice. Harry Connick Jr. believed Woolf’s performance, claiming he felt a “sense of commitment” from the young singer, »

'Selma' Biopic Adds Carmen Ejogo as Martin Luther King Jr.'s Wife

7 April 2014 1:48 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Carmen Ejogo is in talks to play Martin Luther King Jr.'s wife Coretta Scott King in the upcoming biopic Selma.

David Oyelowo is set to play Martin Luther King Jr., with Tom Wilkinson starring as U.S. President Lyndon Johnson in this drama that details the 1965 march from Selma, Alabama to the state capitol of Montgomery where African-American citizens tried to secure their voting rights, only to be beaten back by the police. It took three attempts for the rally to get off the ground, because the marcher's numbers kept increasing each time. Coretta Scott King, who married Martin Luther King Jr. in 1956, was a part of the march with her husband during the Selma Voting Rights Movement.

Ava DuVernay (Middle of Nowhere) is directing from a script she co-wrote with Paul Webb. Lee Daniels had once been attached to direct, but he is no longer involved in the project. »

The Eleven Best Accessorized Men in History

24 March 2014 12:07 PM, PDT | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Everyone has heard the expression “Clothes make the man”, but a few really insightful guys know the truth: accessories make the man. So here’s our list of the very best accessorized men we’ve ever seen. Because any guy can wear a suit and tie, but it takes a real man to wear a giant scarf, half a dozen necklaces, and a wrist-ful of bracelets all at the same time.

It's Good to Be King

Premiere April 2 at 10p Et/ 9p Pt

Ivan the Terrible

This sixteenth-century czar has a truly terrible reputation for bursts of anger and outbreaks of mental illness, but this guy definitely knew that there was more to an outfit that a shirt and some pants. From fur-lined hats and ornate brocade cloaks to scepters and truly incredible shoes, Ivan would never have been seen wearing ordinary clothes. We think we might just start referring »

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Blu-ray Review

23 March 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It’s hard not to be impressed by blockbusters right now.  2013’s top three films were The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Iron Man 3 and Frozen.  All good to great movies.  Catching Fire proved the most successful of the lot, grossing well over $400 million, and even outperformed the first film.  Jennifer Lawrence stars as Katniss Everdeen, who is forced to compete in a battle royale yet again in the savage Quarter Quell with Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) at her side, and with her love Gale Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth) watching from a distance.  My review of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire follows after the jump.  Confidently picking up the story where the first film last left off, Katniss has survived the seventy-fourth hunger games with Peeta (a first in the history of the event), and is now suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.  She wants to be with Gale, but as President Snow (Donald Sutherland) makes clear, »

When your parents are Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz, some unique famous faces are bound to pop up at your home. Divergent star Zoë Kravitz stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday to chat about her new film and share an amusing celebrity run-in from her childhood.
