Santa Claus, Frosty -- men get a lot of credit in Hollywood for bringing us Christmas cheer. But let's not forget the role women play in holiday films. Here are our favorites who help to make the season bright! Cindy Lou Who in How the Grinch Stole Christmas One of Dr. Seuss' most famous characters the Grinch is eagerly ruining Christmas in Whoville when he's interrupted by Cindy Lou Who, "no bigger than two," a sleepy sprite who mistakes the cranky hermit for the Man in Red, and asks why he's taking away the tree. Despite his grinchiness, he says he's taking it to fix a broken bulb, and even tucks her back into bed. The Grinch's heart eventually triples in size when he hears the Whos singing Christmas songs,...

I may have been a nice Jewish girl, but my family loved Christmas time. It started at Thanksgiving, when we watched the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade and watched Santa on his sleigh welcome the holiday season to New York. We lived on a block trisected by three streets, and in the middle of this triangle was an island. On this island was a tall, beautiful spruce fir. Every year after Thanksgiving all us neighbors went out and had a block party and the fathers hung lights on the tree, making it into our own private tannenbaum.
Every year my mom took my brother, two of our friends and me into the city on Christmas Eve. We skated at the ice rink at Rockefeller Center and then went across the street to watch the movie (I particularly remember Father Goose, with Cary Grant and Leslie Caron) and the Christmas Show at Radio City Music Hall, »

In case you missed it, the entirety of last night's How I Met Your Mother was in rhyme. All of it. When pondering the genesis of this idea, our recapper asked: "Was it five o’clock on a Friday? The end of a long ideas meeting?" Whatever the reason, it was certainly no Dr. Seuss and perhaps never should have even gone there. If you're curious how Ted and his crew sounded in couplets, we've collected some of the episode's most groan-worthy lines. If you can make it through these, you'll be just fine. (Sorry.)• The outlook wasn’t brilliant for Ted’s romantic life, He was deep into his 30s and still he had no wife. • "Hold it, let’s not all go crazy like some wild bezerkers, What if this is just business meal between some co-workers?" • Ted thought back on past failed dates, “Oh, that could be true, »

Miley Cyrus went from quirky cat lady at the 2013 American Music Awards to belle of the ball at Beacher's Madhouse! On Sunday, Nov. 25, the "Wrecking Ball" singer celebrated her 21st birthday in true, twerkastic Hannah Montana-was-murdered Miley style! One Direction's Niall Horan and Liam Payne came out for the fete, as did the Lorax (yes, the Dr. Seuss character who speaks for the trees), numerous little people (two of whom dressed up as Miley and Robin Thicke during that infamous Vma performance), a a professional twerk team led by Beacher's resident twerker Amazon Ashley, and a slew of friends wearing masks with the birthday girl's face on them! Miley ditched her catsuit for an ab-showcasing »
The ninth and final season of How I Met Your Mother has been all about stretching the sitcom limits: All 24 episodes take place over the course of one wedding weekend, and in another narrative twist, Monday night’s half-hour (8 p.m. Et on CBS) will play out entirely in rhyme.
Last week, EW was on the set of the show’s 200th episode — premiering at the end of January — and we had to ask a few questions about the clever concept. So far, we know that the episode (titled “Bedtime Stories”) has Marshall (Jason Segel) trying to get baby Marvin »

Miley Cyrus turned 21 years old this weekend ... and she celebrated with booze, celebrities, strippers and a guest appearance from a Dr. Seuss character ... and TMZ has the footage. Miley -- now legal to drink alcohol in the U.S. -- partied at Beacher's Madhouse at the Roosevelt Hotel in L.A. on Sunday night, after the American Music Awards. We're told Miley rented out the entire theater for the special birthday/AMAs afterparty. Kelly Osbourne »

What’s worthy of PopWatching this week? A well-balanced plate of live music, criminal dramas, and holiday cheer. All eyes are on Miley Cyrus as she performs at the Ama’s Sunday night. If she does something crazy, at least it’ll give Grandma something else to talk about at your turkey dinner, instead of asking about your employment and relationship status. Just pass the herbed mashed potatoes already! The next course is a scheming James Spader apéritif, followed by an undoubtedly sequin-garnished DWTS finale, and end with some winter wonderland-themed cinema.

Gaga, 27, is known for her eccentric style of dressing and it was Kinney who pointed out how much he complimented her, reports dailymail.co.uk.
"He is extremely strange, actually, and we complement each others' weirdness. That's actually one of the first things he ever said to me," Gaga said on a chat show.
"It's a Dr. Seuss quote, that you find in someone else a 'compatible weirdness'. And it was one of the first things he said to me," she added.
The couple met on. »

Lady Gaga wants to make something clear: She and boyfriend Taylor Kinney aren't as different as people think. The "Do What U Want" singer, 27, called her buff-bodied hottie a "hidden weirdo" during an appearance Friday on Ellen. "He is extremely strange, actually. We complement each other's weirdness. That's actually one of the first things he ever said to me. It's a Dr. Seuss quote. You find in someone else a compatible weirdness." Gaga, who met the Chicago Fire star on the set of her "You and I" video in 2011, said she "looked ridiculously crazy" during their first encounter. "I've got »

Lady Gaga is a lady in love!The pop starlet isn’t afraid to open up in her music, but she seemed a little bashful when Ellen Degeneres asked her about her beautiful beau Taylor Kinney."I think the most important thing is love," Ellen says during an upcoming interview with Gaga. "And when you have someone you have that with…that one person, that connection. And it seems you have that in Taylor.""I think I do," the singer says with a shy smile.So, how did Lady Gaga meet her man?"When we first met we were on the set of the "You and I" video…," the songstress explains. "We were in the middle of this scene and I remember that he kissed me and it wasn't scripted for him to kiss me and I was sort of like was um, you know, was that real or was that fake? »

For anyone who thinks that Lady Gaga and Chicago Fire star Taylor Kinney make an odd couple, wonder no more what makes them tick. "Well, he's a hidden weirdo. He is extremely strange, actually, and we complement each other's weirdness," Gaga explained to Ellen DeGeneres in an interview airing Monday on Ellen. "That's actually one of the first things he ever said to me. It's a Dr. Seuss quote that you find in someone else a compatible weirdness. And it was one of the first things he's said to me. It was so...and you know it's funny. The first time he met me it was one the set of the 'You & I' video—oh, you have to show a shirtless picture," the singer »
At first glance Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney might seem like polar opposites -- Kinney having the appearance of a former prom king and Gaga being the proprietor of all things eccentric -- but Gaga explained what makes their relationship work in a sit-down, airing Monday.
"He's a hidden weirdo," said Gaga. "He is extremely strange actually and we complement each other's weirdness. That's actually one of the first things he ever said to me. It's a Dr. Seuss quote -- that you find in someone else of compatible weirdness -- and it was one of the first things he said to me."
Gaga reminisced about her first time meeting her Chicago Fire boyfriend, saying, "We were on the set of the You and I video and I looked ridiculously crazy ... I've got these pins sticking out of my head and I'm wearing cork and I got no hair and I'm bald. I mean, why »
Lady Gaga is appearing on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" Monday (Nov. 25), but here are a few sneak peek clips that the show released early.
On her hip surgery earlier this year:
"I guess I danced really hard and ... I don't know what hurts the most after I've been on tour for nine months. And I love you all so much, I don't know how to not go on. I just love being a performer so much and I'm just happy to be back and I'm, you know, I'm feeling like myself again and I'm just starting to rehearse and I'm getting ready for my next tour which will be next year and I can't wait to perform for you."
On buying Michael Jackson's tour wardrobe:
"I heard that they were auctioning off his tour clothes and these are my most prized possessions. ... The ones that are my favorite are »
Eddie Egan is leaving Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment after almost two decades at the studio, where his successes have included “Bridesmaids” and the “Despicable Me” and “Fast” franchises.
NBCUniversal vice chairman Ron Meyer made the disclosure Tuesday in an email to employees, called Egan “one of the most uniformly respected and admired executives in our company.”
The studio did not indicate whether Egan’s slot as head of marketing at Universal’s Illumination Entertainment would be filled.
“His passion and dedication have played a critical role in building Universal’s marketing organization, which is one of the best in the business,” Meyer said. “He’s also been a huge leader in the effort to grow and expand our family entertainment brand, Illumination Entertainment.”

Exclusive: Eddie Egan, who in May 2011 moved from his post as domestic marketing president to take a senior post at Chris Meledandri’s Universal-based Illumination Entertainment, is leaving the studio where he has worked for nearly the past two decades. I’m told it was a mutual decision to move on. Egan made the move after overseeing the marketing of such Universal hits as Fast Five and Bridesmaids; after moving over, the Illumination films he worked on included Despicable Me 2, which is the bridesmaid behind Jurassic Park in the title of the studio’s biggest-grossing film ever with a worldwide tally of more than $916 million. Egan also worked closely on such Illumination product as Despicable Me and Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax. Ron Meyer just sent out an internal note confirming the exit. While it usually takes awhile to get the full story of what happened when any exec departs, »
