28 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Natalie Portman has some solid advice for college grads.  The Oscar-winning actress gave the 2015 Harvard Commencement Speech at the Tercentenary Theater on Wednesday in Cambridge, Massachusetts.  Portman, who graduated from the prestige university in 2003, managed to throw in a few jokes during her mostly-serious speech. The 33-year-old opened up the ceremony, referencing the WikiLeakes Sony hack e-mail scandal and her own time at college. "At my Class Day, we were lucky enough to have Will Ferrell as Class Day Speaker and that many of us, hungover or even freshly high, mainly wanted to laugh," Portamn confessed.  "It's easy now to romanticize my time here, but I had some very difficult times here too," she revealed during her candid speech. "Some combination of being 19, dealing with my first heart break, taking birth control pills that have since been taken off the market for their depressive side effects, and spending too much »

Time Machine: Spielberg and Daughter (with 'Indiana Jones' Actress Capshaw) on Oscars Red Carpet

14 May 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg on the Oscars' Red Carpet Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg arrive at the 83rd Academy Awards, held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Spielberg has taken home two Best Director Oscars: Schindler's List (1993) and Saving Private Ryan (1998). Schindler's List also won Best Picture, but Saving Private Ryan lost to John Madden's Miramax-distributed Shakespeare in Love. There was quite a bit of animosity at the time, as some felt that Miramax, owned by brothers Bob and Harvey Weinstein, overdid its Oscar campaigning – while still managing to sway enough Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences members to vote for its film. Somewhat ironically, at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony Steven Spielberg presented the Best Picture Award to The King's Speech. Toplining Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter, Geoffrey Rush, Guy Pearce, and Claire Bloom, this British production was »

Cannes’ Glitzy Opening Night Welcomes Hollywood’s A-List

13 May 2015 12:12 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Cannes Film Festival kicked off on Wednesday with “Standing Tall,” a French drama about a judge (Catherine Deneuve) who tries to counsel a troubled teenager.

It was only the second opening-night film in the festival’s 68-year-history directed by a woman (Emmanuelle Bercot). Girl power seemed to be a theme on and off the red carpet. At 71, Deneuve proved she’s still an international movie icon, drawing cheers as she entered the Palais, along with her co-star Benoit Magimel.

The guest list included a cluster of Hollywood stars: Natalie Portman — whose directorial debut, “A Tale of Love and Darkness,” plays in the official selection; Naomi Watts (here for competition drama “Sea of Trees”); Julianne Moore; Lupita Nyong’o; and Isabella Rossellini, whose mother, Ingrid Bergman, graces the official festival poster. Chinese stars Fan Bingbing and Angelababy were also among the high-profile celebrities who attended.

Don't expect to snap a selfie with Natalie Portman's Academy Award if you ever stop by her house! The Oscar-winning actress, who picked up a Best Actress trophy for her work in "Black Swan," now admits she has no clue where the statue is now. "I don't know where it is. I think it's in the safe or something. I don't know. I haven't seen it in a while," she says in a candid new interview with The Hollywood Reporter. "I mean, Darren [Aronofsky, director of 'Black Swan'] actually said to me something when we were in that whole thing that resonated so deeply," she explains. "I was reading the story of Abraham to my child and talking about, like, not worshipping false idols. And this is literally like gold men. This is lit­er­ally worshipping gold idols — if you worship it. That's why it's not displayed on the wall. It's a false idol. »

Time Machine: Oscar-Nominated Director Russell Makes Fashion and Facial Statement

3 May 2015 8:35 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

David O. Russell makes fashion statement on the Oscars' Red Carpet David O. Russell: Fashion statement and Oscar nomination David O. Russell, a Best Director Oscar nominee for the surprisingly successful boxing drama The Fighter, makes both a fashion and a facial statement upon his arrival with guests at the 2011 Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. This was his first Best Director nomination. About five years ago, David O. Russell made headlines thanks to leaked videos showing him having a volcanic, expletive-filled confrontation with Lily Tomlin on the set of I Heart Huckabees – an ambitious all-star comedy that turned out to be much less successful than the bizarre behind-the-scenes video clips. (Check out Paul Rudd in a parody of the 'I Heart Huckabees' blow-up.) Three Kings and I Heart Huckabees alumnus Mark Wahlberg has said that he had to fight with Paramount »

19 Actors Who Didn't Marry Actors - You Might Have a Chance With a Star After All

31 March 2015 3:35 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

When it comes to the laws of dating in Hollywood, musicians are typically drawn to models, while actors tend to gravitate toward other actors. They meet on set while filming a movie - we're looking at you, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie - or cross paths during an industry event and end up living happily ever after. For some stars, though, it's more appealing to settle down with someone who's not in the spotlight, like an agent, an artist, or, in the case of Matt Damon, a Miami Beach bartender. George Clooney made headlines when he married civil rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin, whose impressive accomplishments more than match up to his acting career, and ballet professional Benjamin Millepied danced his way into Natalie Portman's heart when they tied the knot in 2012. Keep reading to see 19 screen stars who married nonactors, and be sure to check out more celebrity wedding pictures than you can handle! »
