James Franco is no stranger to playing real people on the big screen, so this latest casting news comes as no surprise. Variety reports that the actor is deep in talks to cameo as Playboy founder Hugh Hefner in the Amanda Seyfried-starring Linda Lovelace biopic, simply titled "Lovelace."

If cast, the Oscar nominee would be reunited with his "Howl" directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman. The film follows the story of real-life porn star Lovelace, who rose to notoriety as the star of porn flick "Deep Throat." Franco potentially could be on set for the film for only one day, shooting a scene in which the film screens at the famed Playboy mansion and he, as Hefner, has a talk with Lovelace, real name Linda Boreman. »

Jennifer Aniston Dubbed Hottest Woman of All Time

18 December 2011 5:57 AM, PST | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Jennifer Aniston has been named the 'hottest' woman of all time. The former Friends beauty beat Marilyn Monroe and Raquel Welch to land the top spot in the Men's Health magazine poll. But the star doesn't think that she should have won. "It's a tie between Brigitte Bardot and Gloria Steinem," the 42 year-old told Men's Health. "But if I had to choose one, I'd say Gloria because she's the full package. That's sexy." Completing the top five on the list of "100 hottest women of all time" are Raquel Welch, Marilyn Monroe, Britney Spears and Madonna. © Splash News   »

Morning Brew - Monday, Dec. 12: Jennifer Aniston thinks Gloria Steinem is sexy, Naya Rivera supports Ryan Murphy

12 December 2011 7:45 AM, PST | AfterEllen.com | See recent AfterEllen.com news »

Good morning!

On this week's episode of Kourtney and Kim Take New York, Kourtney Kardashian discovered there was lesbian sex on her boyfriend's porn and wanted to make sure he knew there'd be no group sex at home. He reminded her how many girls she has kissed and she moved on to talk about having another baby. Buzz-kill!

Men's Health took a poll on the Sexiest Woman of All Time and Jennifer Aniston won. Jen was asked who thinks is sexy and she said:

It’s a tie between Bridgette Bardot and Gloria Steinem. But if I had to choose one, I’d say Gloria because, well, she’s the full package. That’s sexy.

Not Angelina Jolie?

Jessie J and Rihanna are headlining London's 2012 Wireless Festival this July. Jessie has a crush on RiRi, which I hope means they'll do a few songs together, like "Te Amo" and "Do It Like a Dude. »

Jennifer Aniston is the Sexiest Woman Ever - Men's Health Magazine

11 December 2011 10:52 AM, PST | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Jennifer Aniston has beaten her former love rival Angelina Jolie to be named the sexiest woman of all time. Men's Health magazine named the former Friend ahead of Marilyn Monroe, Madonna, Britney Spears and Jolie, who only managed 10th place. "Funny is sexy and Jennifer Aniston is funny," the magazine's writers said. "Her down to earth persona makes her seem attainable and her all-too-human love life off screen inspires sympathy that not even a string of bland romantic comedies can diminish. "Other sex symbols drift toward one-dimensionalilty, becoming flat icons in the process, but throughout her career Aniston has remained sexy, funny and unmistakably real." However, when asked to pick her own sexiest woman, Aniston, 42, said: "It's a tie between Bridgette Bardot and Gloria Steinem. But if I had to choose one, I'd say Gloria because, well, she's the full package. That's sexy." © Splash News   »

Jennifer Aniston Named Sexiest Woman of All Time

10 December 2011 7:25 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It's been a banner year for Jennifer Aniston, with success at the box office and in her personal life - and, to cap off 2011, she's been named the Sexiest Woman of All Time by Men's Health. Rounding out the top five on the list of 100 women are Raquel Welch, Marilyn Monroe, Britney Spears and Madonna. Though Aniston, 42, embraced her role as a flirtatious (to put it mildly) dentist in this year's Horrible Bosses, she told the magazine she doesn't always play a siren on screen. "The least sexy character [I've played] was Jeannie Bueller on the TV version of Ferris Bueller's Day Off, »

Aniston Is Hottest Woman Of All Time

9 December 2011 3:01 PM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Jennifer Aniston has been voted the hottest woman of all time in a new men's survey.

Editors at MensHealth.com polled members of the general public to determine the most desirable female - dead or alive - and the former Friends star has topped the list.

One Million Years B.C. beauty Raquel Welch was named second best, while blonde bombshell Marilyn Monroe landed at three. Pop stars Madonna and Britney Spears round out the top five.

But Aniston insists she doesn't deserve the title and has instead offered up her own preferred picks.

She says, "It's a tie between (actress/model) Brigitte Bardot and (feminism activist) Gloria Steinem. But if I had to choose one, I'd say Gloria because, well, she's the full package. That's sexy."

Also making the cut were Angelina Jolie, Scarlett Johansson, Megan Fox, Colombian singer Shakira, supermodel Heidi Klum, Salma Hayek, Cameron Diaz and Victoria's Secret beauty Gisele Bundchen. »

Jennifer Aniston Named Hottest Woman Of All Time By Hilarious Magazine

9 December 2011 10:32 AM, PST | BestWeekEver | See recent BestWeekEver news »

Men’s Health Magazine just named their Top 100 Hottest Women Of All Time (with every entry on its own page in convenient “Year-End Album List That Forces You To Skip Right To #1″ format), and they’ve officially named Jennifer Aniston #1. Their explanation (Bracketed Portion mine): She rarely plays the airhead, and she seldom overplays a role: she’s funny in a quiet, refreshingly human way. And her all-too-human love life off screen inspires sympathy that not even a string of bland romantic comedies can diminish. [Also we had a handshake agreement with her publicist for an interview to accompany this article, and they gave us a giant sack with a dollar sign on it and also obviously we can't interview Marilyn Monroe plus this'll generate controversy] I realize beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but I think we can all beholden that this is incorrect. For good measure, Aniston also said that her pick for the Sexiest Woman Of All Time would have been Gloria Steinem, the most selfconcious and calculating answer possible (short of “My Grandmother! Her courage and devotion were the true definition of sexy”). Needless to say, »

Jennifer Aniston, Raquel Welch are Hottest Women of All Time, according to Men's Health

9 December 2011 8:11 AM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Men's Health has just released its Hottest 100 Women of All Time list and we ... find it a little suspect (and we say this as big fans of Jennifer Aniston).

But Aniston is ranked no. 1, which we guess makes her Men's Health hottest woman ever. Raquel Welch is no. 2 and rounding out the top 5 are Marilyn Monroe, Britney Spears and Madonna. Brit-Brit and Madonna at fourth and fifth all time? Huh.

The rest of the top 10 are: Ursula Andress, Bettie Page, Pamela Anderson, Jane Fonda and Angelina Jolie.

Again, we say ... huh. We do know taste is subjective, but we're still a little surprised. Also, we feel like "hot," "beautiful," "pretty" and "cute" are all very different things. You can check out the full list here. What do you guys think?

For the list, Aniston answered a few quick questions with the magazine:

Cagney & Lacey reunited

7 December 2011 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Buddy movies and TV shows had always been the preserve of men – until New York cops Cagney and Lacey hit our screens in the 80s. Sharon Gless and Tyne Daly, still friends and both starring in the West End, reminisce about changing the face of primetime TV

There was a period in her 20s when Tyne Daly was always cast as a victim. She had grown up in a theatrical family, dreamt of being a classical actor, as well as appearing on the musical stage, but her husband's acting and directing career led the couple to Hollywood with their baby daughter. "My time on television began, and I started playing victims," she says. "I did about 10 or 12 years of them, which gets old, right?" Her laughter echoes around the empty auditorium. A large, studded bird ring glints on her finger, and her eyes widen occasionally like a startled owl. She »

Ellen Barkin finds the role of a lifetime in "Another Happy Day"

18 November 2011 9:11 AM, PST | AfterEllen.com | See recent AfterEllen.com news »

While critics and odds makers tell us that Meryl Streep is a shoe-in for Best Actress at next year's Oscars, the competition definitely is worth watching. And the next couple of weeks just may bring a new name to the race — one that we haven't heard enough lately — with the release of Another Happy Day starring Ellen Barkin.

The movie, which won Best Screenplay at Sundance, puts Barkin in a role unlike anything we've seen from her before and, according to reviewers, she gives the performance of a lifetime.

Barkin plays Lynn, a wealthy but troubled mother who travels to her parents' estate for her oldest son's extravagant wedding. The parents, played by Ellen Burstyn and George Kennedy, have a much better relationship with Lynn's ex-husband (Thomas Hayden Church) and his current wife (Demi Moore) than they do with their daughter. As the wedding unfolds, every character's dysfunction comes to the surface, »

Amanda Seyfried and Peter Sarsgaard in Talks for Porn Biopic ‘Lovelace’

2 November 2011 6:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

[1] In true Hollywood fashion, after years of no biopics about Linda Lovelace, there are now two separate films in the works about the adult film star. We've known for months that Malin Akerman [2] would be toplining Matthew Wilder's take on the story, titled Inferno, and now Amanda Seyfried has entered negotiations to fill the role in Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman's competing version, called Lovelace. Also considering the project is Peter Sarsgaard, who is in early talks to play Lovelace's abusive pornographer husband Chuck Traynor. More details after the jump. Based on The Complete Linda Lovelace by Eric Danville, W. Merritt Johnson and Andy Bellin's script details the life and times of the pornographic actress who was best known for the 1972 hardcore classic Deep Throat -- still one of the highest-grossing independent films of all time. Lovelace got into the business as a young woman when she met Traynor, »
