"One day I'm going to sing with those guys," an 8-year-old Seth Rogen whispered to himself 24 years ago in his quiet suburban Canadian house after seeing the video for Bell Biv DeVoe's "Poison" on Much Music. This weekend, that dream came to fruition at the third annual Hilarity for Charity event he hosted with his wife, Lauren Miller Rogen. After performances from the likes of Sarah Silverman, Weird Al, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (covering No Doubt’s "I’m Just a Girl"), Bell Biv DeVoe came onstage to do what they do. They event raised over $900,000 for Alzheimer's research. Great! As Bbd sings in the song's first verse, "Let's cure it 'cause we're running out of time." »

You've seen Michael Sheen on screen in Underworld and the Twilight series, as Prime Minister Tony Blair in The Queen, and even during his 2010 stint on 30 Rock. You may also be a fan of his current Showtime hit, Masters of Sex, but what's more impressive than his award-winning, two-decade-long career, you ask? His longtime status as a total chick magnet, of course. Michael's been dating gorgeous, talented women for years, and his latest love, comedienne Sarah Silverman, is yet another example of his impressive romantic pursuits. We're dying to know, what is it about the actor that has women like Kate Beckinsale and Rachel McAdams wrapped around his finger? Below, our findings. Source: Getty / Venturelli »

Make people laugh and they won't even realize you're making them think. Over the past 50 years, women have broken through the glass ceiling time after time, shattering stereotypes and thumbing their noses at the old chestnut that "Women aren't funny." Fact: Anybody who says women aren't funny doesn't want them to be funny. We're looking back on the 50 funniest women of the past 50 years, their contributions to comedy, and their enduring legacies that inspire men and women alike. These are the 50 women who have helped (and are helping) to introduce the next class of hilarious women, which will inevitably include Amy Schumer, Lena Dunham, Mindy Kaling, Tig Notaro, Chelsea Handler, Maria Bamford, Aubrey Plaza, and Kate McKinnon. Keep in mind this list only includes women who are primarily performers in movies, television, and standup comedy. That's why you don't see legends like Nora Ephron, Anne Beatts, and Elaine May here. »

While web series cover a wide range of topics, it’s still unusual to see one pop up that features breakfast foods as the characters (not just as the subjects). But that’s exactly what Denny’s and Stoopid Buddy Stoodios have served up to the online video masses in their new web series The Grand Slams. The animated web series is based on the restaurant chain’s popular Grand Slam dish, and introduces viewers to four different breakfast foods (Egg, Pancake, Sausage, and Bacon). Together, these four morning-meal favorites go on delicious adventures both in and out of the restaurant. The debut episode finds Bacon and Sausage refusing to let whipped-cream-and-chocolate-covered Pancake into the hot new breakfast bar in town because “there’s no dessert with breakfast.” The Grand Slams is Denny’s latest attempt at snagging the attention of younger millenials. The restaurant chain’s previous web series, »

Most recently, she guest-starred on 30 Rock as Verna, the hilariously trashy, often monstrous mother of Jane Krakowski’s Jenna Maroney.
Women voters are being targeted in some questionable campaign ads for the upcoming midterm elections. On Wednesday night's “The Daily Show,” correspondent Kristen Schaal explained to Jon Stewart why Republicans are spending millions to draw female voters to the Gop. “Republicans have finally figured out what's most important to women: menfolk!” Schaal said. “Women don't see candidates as potential leaders. We see them as possible soulmates. And Republicans are finally running ads to reflect that.” See video: Sarah Silverman Wants Equal Pay for Women But a Sex Change For Herself One such ad, sponsored by the College Republican National Committee, »

So many comedians to choose from, so few roles.
Who you gonna call? Paul Feig!
It's official. I'm making a new Ghostbusters & writing it with @katiedippold & yes, it will star hilarious women. That's who I'm gonna call.
— Paul Feig (@paulfeig) October 8, 2014

When rumors originally surfaced that Ghostbusters might get the reboot treatment, original star Bill Murray suggested some women to fill the roles: "Melissa [McCarthy] would be a spectacular Ghostbuster. And Kristen Wiig is so funny...I like this girl Linda Cardellini a lot. And Emma Stone is funny. There are some funny girls out there."
Bill, there are A Lot of funny women out there. Here are »

The comedian and actress stars in an ad for the Equal Payback Project that aims to shed light on the gender wage gap.

After pointing out that women make 78 cents to each dollar earned by a man, Silverman decides to take matters into her own hands by getting a sex-change operation.
