Annie's not the same old song and dance for Jamie Foxx

18 December 2014 7:00 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

The way Jamie Foxx sees it; it doesn’t matter whether he’s starring in a blood-soaked thriller or a kid-friendly flick. A promising movie, whatever the genre, is appealing both to audiences and to Foxx himself.

No surprise then that he just repeated his role as a murder consultant in the raunchy comedy Horrible Bosses 2, plays a kind-spirited tycoon in this month’s family friendly reimagining of Annie, and is slated to star in an upcoming bio-pic about complicated boxing legend Mike Tyson.

“The world now opens it up for you to play in all these different areas, these different arenas,” he says over the phone from San Francisco. In other words, having success in one category of film isn’t the sort of barrier to variety that it used to be. “Look at Robert Downey Jr., Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale. These guys are all super-powered actors. They »

Celebrities who love to gamble

2 December 2014 10:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Many celebrities are known for spending ridiculous amounts of money on flashy sports cars, luxury holiday homes, designer clothing and, in the case of Mike Tyson, Bengal tigers. One of the most costly (and profitable) activities pursued by superstars from all walks of life is high stakes betting. We take a look at some of the largest bets that have been placed by celebrities, the celebrities who excel at gambling, and which casino games celebrities seem to prefer.

Ben Affleck

The star of Gone Girl, Argo and Good Will Hunting, is a very accomplished blackjack and poker player, who has reportedly wagered as much as $60 000 a hand on a blackjack game. In fact, Affleck has shown such skill at blackjack that casino owners in Las Vegas have asked him to refrain from playing the game at their casinos, after realising that the actor is able to count cards and so increase his chances of winning. »

Mickey Rourke Defeats Opponent Half His Age in First Fight in 20 Years

28 November 2014 12:00 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Mickey Rourke has gone from The Wrestler back to boxing. The actor, 62, returned to the ring Friday, defeating a fighter less than half his age in a Moscow exhibition bout. Rourke sent Elliot Seymour, a 29-year-old former California Golden Gloves champion with a 1-9 professional record, to the canvas twice in the second round before the referee stopped the fight. Many know Rourke as the '80s actor from 9½ Weeks or his more recent roles in Sin City and Iron Man 2, but the star got his first taste of fame as a boxer in the '60s and '70s. »

Mike Tyson Sexual Abuse

Tyson appeared on SiriusXM’s Opie Radio on Friday when he opened up about his experience with sexual abuse. "I was a little kid, 7," Tyson told co-host Jim Norton. "Old man, yea."

When Norton asked the boxing champion whether it was a one time event or repeated abuse, Tyson said it happened once and that the man was a stranger. "No, one time," Tyson said. "Never seen him again….snatched me off the street."

Norton pressed Tyson, "He abused you and just let you go or did you escape?" After Tyson said that he had run away from the man, Norton asked him if he felt "drastically changed" because of the experience.

Tyson replied, "I don't know if I did or not,” adding, "I'm not embarrassed or ashamed of anything from that perspective. »
