What’s considered short? Well, it depends on who you ask, but the majority of people will tell you that any guy who measures below 5’6″ (1.68m), or a woman who measures below 5’4″ (1.52m) is considered a pipsqueak… and it’s not necessarily a bad thing.
Many celebrities that we all know and love are pint-sized. Avril Lavigne, Salma Hayek, The Olsen Twins, Jack Black, Tom Cruise, Hayden Panettiere, Mark Wahlberg and even Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe, are relatively below what’s considered “average height” and yet, they’re rich and famous. Enough said.
While everyone knows that guys could still suffer from “Small-Man” Syndrome: a syndrome (whether real or not) that affects small men who overcompensate for their lack of height through acts of aggression, it’s extremely uncommon for women to have a terrible issue with their height when they are extremely tiny, but they do exist.

Despite it being his “big chance” (to ruin his career, probably), Jamie Dornan’s Christian Grey is no more. According to reports, the former model pulled out of the sequels to Fifty Shades of Grey because his wife doesn’t want him acting out raunchy sex scenes, and he wasn’t exactly impressed with the inevitable critical response to the movie. Unluckily for him, he will still forever be branded as the S&M god just as Daniel Radcliffe will always be seen as The Boy Who Lived, so his decision to leave seems like locking the stable long after the horse has bolted.
There’s a good chance that the entire female population knows who Christian Grey is by now and what he is capable of, regardless of whether you’ve actually read the poorly written novels of E.L. James or not. Yet for some bizarre reason, »

Not long ago Tom Felton revealed that he was putting together a documentary about the fans of Harry Potter.

Rowling as well, will be talking candidly in interviews that were conducted for the documentary. There is currently no set date, though Tom indicated he hoped it would be in either April or May.

Starring talented up-and-comers Evan Peters and Juno Temple, "Safelight" (formerly "Truck Stop") is a beautifully '70s-set road trip/coming of age tale, complete with a side of that first descent into love. It follows Charles and Vicki (Peters and Temple, respectively) as they make their way up the California coast in a cherry red convertible. Charles is on a quest to photograph every lighthouse in the state as a series he's putting together for a contest. He's a high school student with cerebral palsy and she's a mysterious and troubled runaway, so they have a certain sense of empathy for each other that makes their tentative relationship uncommon yet compelling. "Safelight" is the feature film debut of director/writer Tony Aloupis,who previously created the short film "Sugar."

The comedian stars as a modern career woman whose liberated attitude towards relationships is questioned when she falls for a doctor (Bill Hader).
Trainwreck opens on July 17 in the Us and August 28 in the UK. »
Directed by Judd Apatow, the new comedy "Trainwreck" will premiere at SXSW next month for a "work in progress" screening, eight years after he screened a work in progress version of "Knocked Up" at the same festival. The film was written by Amy Schumer, who also stars alongside Bill Hader. While plot details are being kept firmly under wraps, the film reportedly follows a woman with an aversion to monogamy trying to rebuild her messy life with a serious boyfriend, while simultaneously trying to balance her career and relationships with her father, sister and best friend. The film also stars Vanessa Bayer and Brie Larson, and features a huge ensemble, including Lebron James, Colin Quinn, Ezra Miller, John Cena, Barkhad Abdi, Mike Birbiglia, Jon Glaser, Daniel Radcliffe, Marissa Tomei, Amar'e Stoudemire and more. Check out the trailer below:Here is the trailer for @TrainwreckMovie #Trainwreck We are very proud. I hope you like it. »

Since the release of mid-life crisis drama This Is 40, acclaimed director Judd Apatow has switched gears to focus on producing, dabbling in a variety of projects including Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues and Begin Again, not to mention HBO’s award-winning series, Girls. Now, the filmmaker will step back behind the camera once more for his upcoming all-new comedy Trainwreck, which today revealed its first trailer.
Starring stand-up comedian Amy Schumer – who also helped with script duties – opposite Superbad and Forgetting Sarah Marshall star Bill Hader, the film will orbit around Schumer’s protagonist as a woman who struggles to sustain a relationship with a significant other beyond the clichéd one night stand. But when she is given the opportunity to produce a feature piece on a sports doctor (Hader), she soon finds that her once-concrete attitude about men is beginning to chip away and that monogamy, despite what she has been told, »

Judd Apatow is back with the Summer comedy Trainwreck, and with comedian Amy Schumer in the lead, this looks like the next great Apatow movie. Schumer (who also wrote the film) plays the kind of character she plays on her Comedy Central sketch show a lot - Amy, a party girl who doesn't quite have it together. While she insists that everything is going great, when Amy meets Aaron (Bill Hader), a sweet, successful guy who actually calls her back, the commitment-phobe has to rethink her stance on settling down. This trailer is laugh-out-loud funny with a couple of cameos that only give away some of the amazing cast (Daniel Radcliffe, LeBron James, and Marisa Tomei also costar); this may be the must-see comedy of the year. Trainwreck comes out July 17, so watch the trailer now. Watch the red-band trailer: »
It has been three years since Judd Apatow's middle age dramedy "This Is 40," and he's mostly been busy since, working his producer muscles on "Girls," "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues," and "Begin Again." But he's back in feature length form with "Trainwreck," his big summer comedy, and the first trailer for the movie has arrived today. Amy Schumer (who also wrote the film) and Bill Hader lead the effort, about which plot details have mostly been kept under wraps, but will reportedly center on a woman trying to rebuild her life, with a boyfriend, parent and best friend all in the mix of characters she's dealing with. And the ensemble for this one is huge, with LeBron James, Brie Larson, Colin Quinn, Vanessa Bayer, Ezra Miller, John Cena, Barkhad Abdi, Mike Birbiglia, Jon Glaser, Daniel Radcliffe, Marisa Tomei, Amar'e Stoudemire, and more slated to make appearances. Too much of a. »

Universal has posted the first trailer for the Judd Apatow-directed comedy "Trainwreck," a new feature which aims to introduce Comedy Central favorite Amy Schumer to a wider audience. Schumer plays a woman with a fear of commitment who finds herself falling for a doctor (Bill Hader).
The supporting cast is stellar - Tilda Swinton, Vanessa Bayer, Lebron James, Brie Larson, John Cena, Mike Biriglia, Ezra Miller, Marisa Tomei, Daniel Radcliffe, Barkhad Abdi, Jon Glaser, Colin Quinn, and Randall Park.
The trailer is also refreshingly less smug than some of Apatow's other recent efforts and boasts an interesting look that feels fresher than his past fare. No word on whether this will escape his usual weakness of pacing problems/bloat, that will have to wait for early reviews.

Spidey's coming home!
After the groundbreaking announcement on Monday that Sony and Marvel reached a deal for the beloved Spider-Man to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we went from marvelously happy to a bit sad. Andrew Garfield will likely not reprise his role -- and let’s face it, he’s a perfect Peter Parker.
But at least we get to speculate on who should be the newest web-slinger.
Logan Lerman is known for his title role in the Percy Jackson films, or as Charlie in Perks of Being a Wallflower. The 23-year-old actor’s gorgeous blue eyes and boyish charm are the perfect combo to perfectly encapsulate Peter Parker.
Fans of Harry Potter (i.e. people who breathe) no doubt had a love-hate relationship with Hogwarts' complicated potions master Professor Snape. Alan Rickman's brilliant portrayal in the films brilliantly captured Snape as he is in the books -- the total best and the total worst.
While Snape's backstory in the movies is told in disjointed order in flashbacks and revelations, a YouTube user uploaded this video of all of Snape's most important moments into one heartbreaking 14-minute gut check to your emotions. You have to watch all of it.
All the big moments are in there, from Snape's feelings for Harry's mother Lily, to the moment (do we still have to say spoilers? Well, Spoilers) he kills Dumbledore.
I’ll admit it, I’m a sucker for romantic comedies, especially when they involve cute-but-awkward main characters who’re destined to be together. While the genre may bore some to death, I love it. I love love, as it were.
Monday marks the DVD release of one of my favourite rom-coms of the last few years, What If, starring Harry Potter alum Daniel Radcliffe and actress/screenwriter/playwright extraordinaire Zoe Kazan. Known for her choice of indie roles, Kazan is one of my favourite actresses, so I thought it appropriate to establish why I think she’s wonderful.
(Brin Hill, 2014)
Kicking off my list is independent drama In Your Eyes, which premiered at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival. Released online (and available on Netflix), Zoe plays Rebecca, the lonely young wife of a big-shot doctor. Considered a little strange and treated as an outsider by others, Rebecca »

Daniel Radcliffe has been acting since the age of 9, when he played the young David Copperfield opposite Maggie Smith in the BBC’s 1999 adaptation of the classic Dickens story. But it was in 2001, when Radcliffe was cast as the titular boy wizard of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone that he became an internationally recognised movie star. Eight feature films, adapted from the seven novels by Jk Rowling, were to follow, grossing more than $7bn at the global box office.
With roles in December Boys and My Boy Jack, Radcliffe proved he was no one-trick pony. But it was his 2007 turn on stage – in Thea Sharrock’s West End revival of Peter Shaffer’s play Equus – that established Radcliffe as a serious young actor. Then 17, Radcliffe earned rave reviews for his haunting turn as Alan Strang, a role that required him to disrobe. The actor was nominated for a »

Get ready stateside filmgoers, because the “phoners” (aka “crazies”) are coming to the Us. Stephen King fans know that the master of macabre doesn’t like using cell phones. His 2006 novel, Cell, is a cautionary tale about what can go wrong by pressing portable phones to our ears and keeping them close at hand in our pockets, and its unflinching subject matter contains flocks of murderous lunatics that would be right at home in Danny Boyle’s 28 Days Later, George A. Romero’s The Crazies, or Simon Clark’s Blood Crazy.
We knew this unique King novel was getting the adaptation treatment, with King co-writing the screenplay and John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson in the lead roles, but we’re now one big step closer to seeing it on the silver screen, as Clarius Entertainment has acquired the Us rights to the movie.
Slated to hit theaters this year, »
