A serious attempt to understand Blake Lively's Goop-like website

21 July 2014 6:06 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

“So Blake Lively just launched her Goop” is how someone explained Blake Lively’s new website to me a few hours ago. Now, I am not a cynical person. I believe in giving everything at least half a chance. I can acknowledge that Goop is a thing that people care about, even though nobody can figure out whether to spell it “Goop” or “goop” or “Goop.”

And to the extent that every generation needs their Goop–just like every generation needs a hero or a Highlander or a defining entry in the MarioKart series–Blake Lively seems like someone who could pull that off. »

Leighton and Adam Are Still the Perfect Couple You Dream Of

18 July 2014 6:07 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Leighton Meester and Adam Brody took their dogs for a walk in NYC on Thursday ahead of Leighton's evening show for her Broadway play, Of Mice and Men. The actress and the play have been getting quite a bit of attention this week after Leighton penned an article for Huffington Post where she discussed the feminist subtext of her character, Curley's wife, who is also the only female character in both the John Steinbeck classic and the play. The actress wrote, "If this woman is purely a victim, why is she so hated? And if she is truly harmless, why is she so threatening? Without question, it was a commentary on the social climate at the time, which still surprisingly applies today." Leighton has been open about her feminist ideals, including saying that gender-equality icon Betty Friedan is her role model. »

Life Partners | 2014 Outfest Los Angeles Lgbt Film Festival Review

14 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

She’s the One: Fogel’s Debut a Top Tier Examination of Co-Dependent Friendship

Borrowing shades of autobiographical instances from their own lives, director Susanna Fogel and co-writer Joni Lefkowitz’s feature film debut, Life Partners, transcends the corral of niche markets and anchoring labels with its enthusiastic relatability as one of the most realistic examples of life’s circumstances forcing friends (a little bit) apart. Devoid of soapboxing subtexts or proselytizing with political agendas, Lefkowitz’s tender, sharply observed script gets fleshed out by a handful of genuinely engaging performances from both leads and supporting players. Familiar themes are presented refreshingly as Fogel expertly guides the film through the precarious catwalk of striking just the right balance between light drama and inventive comedy, inviting us to laugh at and with a strikingly composed cast of rich characters.

Best friends Sasha (Leighton Meester) and Paige (Gillian Jacobs) have been inseparable platonic soul mates, »

‘Scandal’s’ Dan Bucatinsky Talks Emmys, Lgbt Community at Outfest Film Festival

11 July 2014 1:31 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Scandal’s” Dan Bucatinsky stopped by the opening night of L.A.’s Outfest Film Festival to show support to the Lgbt community and to talk Emmys and his life after “Scandal.”

Bucatinsky won the Emmy last year for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series for “Scandal,” but this year the Academy did not recognize the actor for his role as James Novak.

“I was snubbed,” he laughed. But the actor did give his congrats to former castmates Joe Morton, Kate Burton and Kerry Washington.

“’Scandal’ is something that was one of the most important career moves of my life and it was incredible. The cast will always be family to me,” he told Variety.

But life after “Scandal” looks promising for Bucatinsky, whose TLC show with writing partner Lisa Kudrow “Who Do You Think You Are?” received an Emmy nod yesterday.

14 Fan Photos Of James Franco Hating the World

6 July 2014 9:01 PM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

View Photo Gallery

James Franco is  headlining The Great White Way in the classic Of Mice and Men (also starring Leighton Meester and Chris O’Dowd). And you know what that means? Fan Selfies After The Show, Duh.

It’s customary for Broadway actors to meet fans after the show for autographs and photos. Since this is Franco’s debut, he’s a little…erm, rusty to the meet-and-greet game. Some days, he’s happy and bubbly to see his admirers lined up to touch his hand. Other days he looks like he hates everything ever made ever. And the contrast of a fan’s goofy grin and Franco’s “f–k the world” face is pretty darn hilarious. Some might say he’s the new Grumpy Cat (read: we’re saying it). Maybe he’s still spooked from the time he tried to pick up a teenager…?

Which Celebrity Wedding Surprised You the Most?

1 July 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Celebrity couples are always in the spotlight, but some of them manage to pull off secret weddings. Sometimes it's a longtime couple keeping their nuptials hush-hush until the last minute, like Beyoncé and Jay Z, who wed in April 2008 and just recently released wedding footage, or Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady, whose friends thought they were going to a christening. Other times, it's a fast turnaround from the engagement to the wedding, like for Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon, who wed after six weeks, and Adam Brody and Leighton Meester, who waited three months before saying their "I dos." Sometimes it's all about small, quiet ceremonies, like for Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas and Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, who wed in California and South Carolina, respectively. Meanwhile, some stars opt for the beach, like Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck in Turks and Caicos and Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green in Hawaii, »

Take This Opportunity to See Robert Downey Jr. Out of His Iron Man Suit

20 June 2014 8:20 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

It's been a few years since we've seen Robert Downey Jr. lead a movie out of his Iron Man suit, and the first trailer for The Judge is a refreshing change of pace.

Now, he must put his grieving on hold to defend his father, who also happens to be a judge and a pillar of their small community. It's kind of like Garden State, but if Zach Braff were Robert Downey Jr. and Natalie Portman were replaced by a mysterious murder. Leighton Meester, Vincent D'Onofrio, Billy Bob Thornton, Vera Farmiga, Dax Shepard, Melissa Leo, and David Krumholtz round out the impressive cast. The Judge is due out Oct. 10, and you can watch the trailer below. Front Page Image Source: Warner Bros. »

The Judge Trailer: Robert Downey Jr. Goes Dramatic, Plus the Film’s First Poster

19 June 2014 6:47 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Warner Bros. has released the first The Judge trailer for director David Dobkin’s (Wedding Crashers) upcoming thriller/family drama.  Robert Downey Jr. plays an attorney who returns home for his mother’s funeral only to learn that his estranged father (Robert Duvall), a judge who suffers from Alzheimer’s, has been accused of murder.  The trailer starts out with Rdj at his Starkiest, but takes a left turn away from the arrogant individualist to more of an everyman with daddy issues once the hook of the story comes in.  It's got a touch of schmaltz to it, but it's also refreshing to see Downey Jr. putting in work outside of the superhero/action-adventure franchises. Hit the jump to check out the first The Judge trailer.  The film also stars Vera Farmiga, Vincent D’Onofrio, Jeremy Strong, Billy Bob Thornton, Dax Shepard, Leighton Meester, Ken Howard, David Krumholtz, Balthazar Getty, »
