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

Lindsay Lohan’s alleged list of sexual conquests was authentic, according to the Mean Girls actress.

Lindsay Lohan Talks The ‘Sex List’

Lohan, 27, revealed the truth behind the leaked list while making an appearance on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live to promote the finale of her Own reality series Lindsay. During the Plead the Fifth segment, the Bravo bigwig couldn’t resist asking Lohan about whether or not she’d slept with the men listed.

Initially, Lohan, who’d already used her “plead the fifth,” laughed off the question, saying, “I can neither confirm or deny.” But then the actress said she wanted to “get serious for a moment” and offered some candor in regard to the list and explained how she thinks it got into the hands of the wrong people.

"You know what, I'm going to get serious for a second ...," Lohan said to Cohen. "That »

Going it alone: Tom Hardy's Locke and 8 more incredible solo performances

18 April 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Tom Hardy delivers a mesmerising solo performance in this week's Locke, holding attention for the duration as the only actor on screen. Steven Knight's car-bound thriller is the latest in a long line of films that have zeroed in on one character and offered the lead an opportunity to flex their acting chops.

With Locke in cinemas now, Digital Spy takes a look at 8 great performances from stars going it alone.

Robert Redford (All Is Lost)

The Hollywood veteran barely utters a word in Jc Chandor's nautical survival drama, but his performance as a man battling nature and his sinking yacht is still devastatingly effective. The ending leaves a note of ambiguity, but up until that point this has been a clear-eyed drama about doing what needs to be done when things go bad.

Based on Aron Ralston's ordeal trapped beneath a boulder in the canyons of Utah, »

Marvel is keeping its next villain all in the family.

After starring in the Marvel One-Shot "All Hail the King" alongside Ben Kingsley, actor Matt Gerald is set to join "Ant-Man" as an unidentified antagonist. It's unclear if he'll reprise his "King" role of White Power Dave; Deadline reports he'll play simply "one of the bad guys."

Gerald's previous, non-Marvel credits include roles as tough guys in films including "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines," "Avatar," "G.I. Joe: Retaliation," and "Escape Plan." He'll next be seen in the thriller "Solace," which stars Colin Farrell and Anthony Hopkins.

Along with Gerald, "Ant-Man"'s eclectic cast includes Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Envangeline Lilly, Michael Pena, and Patrick Wilson. The flick is directed by Edgar Wright, from a script by Wright and Joe Cornish.

"Ant-Man" is set to debut July 17, 2015.

Marvel's "Ant-Man" has found its villain -- well, one of them anyway.  Relative unknown Matt Gerald has signed on to play an unspecified bad guy role opposite the titular pint-sized superhero, played by Paul Rudd, according to Deadline. Rudd plays Scott Lang, the latest hero to take on the mantle of Ant-Man, while Michael Douglas will play original Ant-Man Hank Pym. Little has been revealed about the plot of the film, which is being directed by Edgar Wright ("Shaun of the Dead," "The World's End"). The cast also includes Patrick Wilson ("Watchmen") and Michael Pena ("End of Watch"). Scheduled to open summer 2015, "Ant-Man" will allegedly be tied directly into "The Avengers: Age of Ultron," which opens two months earlier. The studio released "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" this weekend.  Following small roles in "Avatar" and "Escape Plan," Gerald will soon be seen in "Solace," alongside Anthony Hopkins and Colin Farrell. »

Heath Ledger Could Have Been a Young Wolverine

4 April 2014 12:19 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Heath Ledger would be celebrating his 35 birthday had he not passed away at the age of 28 in 2008. In honor of his memory, Hugh Jackman named him as a worthy successor to the character of Wolverine, revealing that he wanted the actor to play a younger version of Logan at one point in the past.

It's no secret that after 7 movies and at least one more on the way, Hugh Jackman is considering hanging up his adamantium claws for good. During a Q&A session to support his latest go at the character in X-Men: Days of Future Past, where he appeared alongside Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy, the Aussie was tasked with answering a question that has been nagging at everyone. Who should replace him as Logan while this Marvel Mutant series continues on at 20th Century Fox?
