The year was 1999 and the world was finally introduced to a budding young star from Australia, William Shakespeare’s modern muse, the most adorkable romantic lead, and an ageless beauty. With the debut of 10 Things I Hate About You, Hollywood welcomed a new crop of stars. Heath Ledger, Julia Stiles, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Gabrielle Union were among the notable names to get started in the big screen, modern adaptation of William Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew. Fifteen years later, members of the cast, including David Krumhotlz and Allison Janney revisit memories from the set.
1. Heath Ledger beat out Ashton Kutcher and Josh Hartnett for the role of Patrick. Ledger’s first major American film role almost went Hartnett, who was just coming off The Faculty and Halloween H20. Meanwhile, Kutcher landed the role of Michael Kelso on That ’70s Show.
2. Ledger missed the film’s first table read. »

When ladies in Hollywood get engaged, the first thing we do is look at that finger. And now thanks to Johnny Depp we're going to start eyeballing the fellas' hands too. Most celebs rings are the cream of the diamond crop so it's nearly impossible to say which one is more beautiful. But just for fun, we put them side by side and compared them by carat size to see which style you like best. Take, for example Gabrielle Union and Jennifer Aniston. Each actress dons a massive 8 carat rock but the main difference lies in their cuts: cushion vs. radiant. So which one will get your vote? Enter the bling ring below and let us know. »

Gabrielle Union picked the right bra to wear with her flash-potential fashion. When we first saw this shot of the Being Mary Jane star, we thought the peeping lingerie was part of her look! Bold choice for an engagement party, we thought, but it was in Miami and she is a super-hot bride-to-be. Then we saw a picture of the Think Like a Man Too star in her intended ensemble. That left tata showcase was obviously not intentional but it could have been way worse. Here is the gorgeous duo in Gabrielle's fully-covered look. The neckline is already plunging - risky move #1 - and the blousy, buttoned top offers plenty of room for an inconvenient fabric slide - risky move #2. But is the slip that bad given how »
Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade may have gotten engaged a few months ago, but they're still celebrating their impending nuptials. The soon-to-be husband and wife hosted an engagement bash at Pearl at Nikki Beach in Miami Saturday night, with an after-hours party with family and friends. After attending the Reid & Fiorentino Call of the Game dinner – which the Being Mary Jane star hosted – at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Fla., she and the Miami Heat baller arrived at Nikki Beach around 12:30 a.m "They arrived with a big group of family," a partygoer tells E! News. The bash had a white theme, with the servers and the décor in all white. »
For evidence of how bad working actresses have it in contemporary Hollywood, look no further than the cavalcade of talented female performers who have subjected themselves to toiling in the flat-footed melodramas of Tyler Perry; if Alfre Woodard, Kathy Bates and Sanaa Lathan (“The Family That Preys”), Thandie Newton and Gabrielle Union (“Good Deeds”) and Taraji P. Henson (“I Can Do Bad All By Myself”) aren't getting better offers than to star in Perry's hacky, retrograde, low-budget movies, times are tough indeed. The most misused performer in his latest, “The Single Moms Club,” would have to be the talented comic. »

Ahead of the release of The Single Moms Club, a film written, directed, produced by and starring Tyler Perry, we thought it was worthwhile looking back on all the Tyler Perry Productions (Tpp) that came before it. In total, Perry has produced 16 films (including Smc) from the ongoing Madea franchise to stand-alones, such as Temptation and Why Did I Get Married? All of the films have been met with varying degrees of praise and success. But who has actually sat down and watched all of them? Inspired by that question, I decided to review all of Perry’s film in order to grade and rank each film.
To see how they fall in order (from worst to best), flip through the gallery above. For a more in-depth, critical analysis keep on reading!

Vanity Fair upped its Oscar game last night. They build a huge multi level tented building in the parking behind Sunset Plaza. Traffic snaked back and forth on Sunset Boulevard in both directions. There was a big security plan, with metal detectors at the check in. And then you arrived to find an avalanche of stars. Stars and stars. Two by two, or three by three, they came. Inside the main room, just to the right, if you could find them through the fog of formally attired people, Jane Fonda and Anjelica Huston set up a beach head. Many stars, old and young, were crowded into this area including Jane’s beau, Richard Perry, and Sarah Paulson, plus Quincy Jones, who was busy looking for Petra Nemcova, and Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks. Rosaria Dawson and Gabrielle Union weren’t far away. Sitting on a couch in a section nearby, »

Paula Patton evidently got the same memo as Reese Witherspoon, Miranda Kerr and Gabrielle Union. Just like those other lovely ladies, the About Last Night actress served up some serious cleavage while attending Vanity Fair's Oscar party on Sunday. Decked out in a Celia Kritharioti dove gray gown with a plunging neckline, the 38-year-old gal definitely brought the glam to the star-studded soirée. The night before, Patton attended the Independent Spirit Awards, where she simply stunned in a yellow, floral and sheer Lorena Sarbu dress. It marked her first red carpet event since announcing her split from husband Robin Thicke. "We will always love each other and be best friends," Patton »
