The Hollywood machine isn't the studio-based system that it was in the mid-20th Century. An almost conspiratorial corporate entity that would spend years cultivating and curating movie stars. But, to some extent, it still exists in 2014. Through publicists, agents and even studios, the industry still tries to "create" new stars. And, for better or worse (depending how you see it), it's mostly male actors that get this treatment today (although any leading lady in a Michael Bay film may qualify outside of Scarlett Johansson). Some happen almost by accident (Robert Pattinson), some have delayed debuts (Chris Hemsworth), many aren't worthy of the hype (Alex Pettyfer) and a few may take decades before they are deliver on their potential (Matthew McConaughey). Next weekend the big screen adaptation of "Divergent" is hitting theaters and, all of a sudden, people are going to start talking about Theo James. Granted, James isn't new to Hollywood and, »

Jennifer Lawrence's fans have started an online petition to get her nominated for Best Hero at the MTV Movie Awards.
The network recently announced the nominees in its annual movie awards show, with Henry Cavill, Channing Tatum, Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, and Martin Freeman nominated in the Best Hero category.
Fans have taken to Thepetitionsite.com urging the network to recognise Lawrence's role as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
"There is not a single woman in the Hero's category," the petition argues. "Don't let a strong woman like Katniss be overlooked…! Young women already have too few female heroes represented in film and television.
"We're constantly shown by the entertainment industry that men are brave, powerful, or successful, while women are often given supporting roles and weak characters."
So far, the petition has over 12,000 signatures and looks set to reach its 15,000 signature goal for Friday »
Channing Tatum's got brown hair ... but he had a real blonde moment in L.A. last night.Tatum was gassing up his vintage pick-up when we asked about the head transplant research going on in Italy right now -- seriously, it's a real thing. We asked Channing if he could put his head on any person's body in the world ... which body would he pick? It was a pretty straightforward question, but Channing's answer ... just listen for yourself. »

Angry fans of Jennifer Lawrence are protesting her snub at the upcoming MTV Movie Awards. The ballot for Best Hero is filled with five men but no women, especially her character Katniss Everdeen from "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire." Over 10,000 people have signed a petition demanding that Lawrence be added to the nominees, which currently are Henry Cavill ("Man of Steel"), Robert Downey, Jr. ("Iron Man 3"), Martin Freeman ("The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug"), Chris Hemsworth ("Thor: The Dark World"), and Channing Tatum ("White House Down"). Lawrence does have MTV nominations this year for Best Female Performance and Best Fight for that blockbuster sequel plus Best Kiss (shared for "American Hustle" with Amy Adams). E! Online. Jeff Jensen reviews the finale of HBO's "True Detective" as "truth, justice, and the surprise of a happy ending." He calls it the culmination of "a rema »
While many fans are waiting for Mark Ruffalo to return as The Hulk, the actor has some great lower key projects waiting in the wings. Ruffalo stars with Steve Carell and Channing Tatum in Foxcatcher, turns in an amazing leading performance in Infinitely Polar Bear from Sundance earlier this year, and now he seems prime for an Emmy nomination in the new HBO film The Normal Heart, directed by "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy. Based on the Tony Award winning play of the same name, the film takes place during the HIV-aids crisis in NYC in the early 1980s, and the first teaser trailer has just debuted online showing off the impressive cast that includes Julia Roberts, Taylor Kitsch, Jim Parsons & Matt Bomer. Watch! Here's the teaser trailer for Ryan Murphy's The Normal Heart from HBO: The Normal Heart is directed by Ryan Murhpy ("Glee" and "The New Normal") and written by Larry Kramer, »

Scott Bakula loved his scene in the bathhouse on Looking. He got a chance to catch up on something he felt he’d missed. “This was as close as I’d ever gotten to a real bathhouse. Just hearing about it in my old days in New York in the mid-‘70s, you know that was a huge deal. That’s where Bette Midler started and that whole scene! My gay friends would be off to Sunday Tea, and then roll in at 9 the next morning after the bathhouse. But that was about as close as I ever got. But I thought this was a great scene, a great way to introduce the character. I love what that scene was about. But no, I wasn’t shocked. In terms of having my clothes off, »

Tatiana Maslany plays seven different roles in BBC3 sci-fi series that is becoming this year's must-see TV event
The thriller Gravity recently cleaned up, along with 12 Years a Slave, at the Oscars. This evening another sci-fi success story is set to be feted at the Canadian Screen Awards. Not quite the Academy Awards, but a sign of big things to come.
Orphan Black, a television drama that plunges into the moral minefield of human cloning, won 10 awards in North America last year and is expected to add to that total tonight. Winning the best drama award would serve as further confirmation of the quality of the BBC-sponsored clone thriller, whose second season will be shown later this year on BBC3.
The show has established Tatiana Maslany, its 28-year-old Canadian star, as an unusually gifted actress who plays seven clones with different personalities and accents.
Orphan Black is also burnishing the »

Jennifer Lawrence is the best friend everyone wants (and pretends) to have, so can you imagine what it would be like tagging along as her date to the Oscars?
Now you don't have to imagine, because her date to the 86th Academy Awards was her actual, real-life Bff Laura Simpson, and she wrote a hilarious tell-all essay about her star-studded, surreal night at the ceremony and after-parties. Originally published on MySpace, Simpson's essay spans the entire day of prep, all the way to when she arrived home at 3:30 a.m.
Lawrence and Simpson met exactly how you'd expect them to: bonding over pizza. "How did I get invited to the 86th Academy Awards, you ask? Well, my best friend took me as her date," Simpson writes. "I met her seven years ago at an event where we both didn't know a single person. We hit it off over a mutual respect for Chandler Bing, »
Los Angeles, March 9: Actor Channing Tatum and his wife Jenna feel closer ever since they have become parents to nine months-old daughter Everly.
Jenna says having a daughter has led them to "communicate" differently, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
"You become closer because you have to be in the same page to make decisions for the baby. It makes us communicate about things we never did before," she said.
The duo believes in spending quality time with each other and continue to go on regular date nights.
"You have to have adult conversations for your own sanity. So we get a sitter, go out and have some fun. We're very good about making time for that," Jemma told Us Weekly magazine.

It’s a well-known fact that everyone wants to be Jennifer Lawrence’s best friend. Who among us hasn’t imagined scarfing down pizza with the American Hustle star while laughing at fart jokes and oh, yeah — hanging with Bradley Cooper like it ain’t no thang? But we never knew what it was actually like to be J. Law’s best friend — until now.
Lawrence’s real-life Bff, model Laura Simpson, was the actress’ date to last week’s Oscars, which led Simpson to write a pretty epic MySpace post about the night. Truly, it may go down as »

Admit it - at one time or another you might have fantasized about what it would be like if you were Jennifer Lawrence's bestie. Well, Laura Simpson is, and in a post on MySpace, she reveals that it is everything we could have imagined and then some. Simpson was the American Hustle nominee's date to the Oscars on Sunday (along with JLaw's on-again boyfriend Nicholas Hoult). But you might know her as the girl in the black dress who Lawrence grabbed as she almost face-planted on the red carpet. She uses "my freshly done Lauren Conrad up do to break her fall, »

Your Daily Roundup of Celebrity Gossip & Star Shenanigans!
That's One Way To Get More ReTweets: If Jennifer Lawrence had her way, the Oscars selfie with herself, host Ellen DeGeneres, Jared Leto, Channing Tatum, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Kevin Spacey, Brad Pitt, Lupita Nyong'o and her brother, Angelina Jolie and Bradley Cooper would have included a little something extra. "Oh, my god! Oh, my god!" Jennifer said about the photo in a behind-the-scenes video from Sunday's Oscars. "One of us should have flashed a boob!" Adding, "That's the only way we would have shut down the Internet!" Ellen pointed ...

Ellen DeGeneres made history during Sunday's Oscars when she took a star-studded selfie with Jared Leto, Jennifer Lawrence, Channing Tatum, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Kevin Spacey, Bradley Cooper, Brad Pitt, Lupita Nyong'o and Angelina Jolie. It temporarily shut down Twitter's servers, and less than a week later, the photo has been retweeted more 3.23 million times and favorited 1.88 million times. If it were up to Lawrence, however, the actors could have taken things a step further. "Oh, my god! Oh, my god!" the nominee said in a behind-the-scenes video. "One of us should have flashed a boob!" The American Hustle star added, "That's the only way we would have shut down the »
Is it just me or are the MTV Movie Awards trying to be a little more respectable? Yeah, stuff like "Identity Thief" and "We're the Millers" picked up multiple nominations this morning, but prestige Oscar players "American Hustle" and "The Wolf of Wall Street" led the field with eight each, besting even "The Hunger Games." And Best Picture Oscar winner "12 Years a Slave" is in there for Movie of the Year. Color me surprised, that's all. No, no one around here is taking the MTV Movie Awards too seriously. I find myself endlessly fascinated by them, though, as a marker for, I don't know, youth progression? The "Twilight" years are thankfully behind us and we can all be happy for that (and boy was it a s**t-show for fans of that franchise when the final installment was mostly snubbed last year). The "Hunger Games" era doesn't seem to be so oppressive, »

We all saw that Jennifer Lawrence brought her boyfriend, Nicholas Hoult, to the Oscars on Sunday, but he wasn't her only date. Jennifer's best friend, Laura Simpson, was along for the big night as well, and she shared an honest - and hilarious - account of what it was like to attend Hollywood's biggest event as a non-celebrity. We learned a few things while reading the article: You Don't See the Real Red Carpet on TV Highland (between Sunset and Hollywood) is filled with barricades with different entry points so no crazy person can plow their car through, killing everyone on the red carpet. Guarding each entry point through the barricades are men in head-to-toe camouflage with gigantic automatic weapons (rifles? I don't know guns). I try to take a photo of one, and I'm stopped immediately. Completely lining the sidewalks of Highland are the Jesus freaks. I am not »

Here's a sweet little feel good story for you today: New mommy Jenna Dewan-Tatum loves to have her daughter Everly close at every moment, and so when she can't physically be with her she wears a necklace with her name in her honor. So precious! Jenna stepped out to dinner at Crossroads in Los Angeles clad in a silk tan blouse, jeans and studded shoes, but we definitely like her choice of jewelry the best. Not only did Jenna wear a silver necklace with her 9-month-old daughter's name, but she layered with another "Everly" necklace in gold. We love that even when Jenna can't be with her daughter or husband Channing Tatum, her family is always close to her heart! Also, »
Olivia Munn was a stunning visage in her Vanity Fair Oscar Party gown, but she’s really a jeans and tee-shirt kind of woman. She keeps it casual, even forgoing a bra, in a new photo spread in Esquire magazine. How casual is that? The 33-year-old actress and comedian has always been comfortable in her own skin. She appeared topless in the Channing Tatum movie “Magic Mike.” [...] »
