Relativity declined to comment for this story.

It's been less than two months since Elizabeth Chambers gave birth to her first child with hubby Armie Hammer, and the new mama is already flaunting her post-baby body out on the town. Chambers and Hammer were both dressed to the nines at the Daily Front Row Fashion Los Angeles Awards Show at Los Angeles' elite Sunset Tower Hotel last night, but all eyes were on the Lone Ranger's leading lady. Dressed in a stunning, fitted black sequin cocktail dress that perfectly highlighted her figure, Chambers was easily one of the best dressed stars of the night. It's been a whirlwind few months for the proud new parents, given that they welcomed their first baby, Harper, back on Dec. 1. The »
Rose McGowan's latest look has people scratching their heads. The Jawbreaker star, 41, walked the red carpet for The Daily Front Row's 1st Annual Fashion Los Angeles Awards, held at Sunset Tower Hotel in West Hollywood Thursday. McGowan's vibrant purple, cracked-egg-shaped headwear helped her stand out in a sea of stars that included Drew Barrymore, Ciara, Miley Cyrus, Gigi Hadid, Armie Hammer, Minka Kelly, Dylan Penn, Katy Perry, Nicole Richie, Rihanna, Louise Roe, Liberty Ross, Cody Simpson, Kerry Washington, Kanye West, Dita Von Teese and Rachel Zoe. The rest of McGowan's look was demure, as she wore a turtleneck and wide-legged pants. "I'm officially starting my awesome hat »
Baby in carrier, check. Work in progress, check. Armie Hammer seems to have all bases covered! The Lone Ranger actor recently made his activity-juggling social media debut when his actress wife, Elizabeth Chambers Hammer, shared this totally charming Instagram photo captioned, "Baby bouncing and script reading. Multitasking at its finest! Couldn't love these two more." The acting duo first welcomed their daughter, Harper, to the world on Dec. 1 of last year and it looks as if the Hammers are happier than ever. After exchanging vows in 2010, the actor and TV host spent nearly four years in marital bliss before expanding their gorgeous, genetically blessed family into a »
American Sniper grossed $107.3 million in its first four days of wide release this past weekend and on top of breaking January box office records and in only a few days becoming the highest grossing of all the Best Picture nominees, it has also become the latest film to have its nits picked. Controversy is swirling as to whether or not the film's subject, Chris Kyle, is actually a heroc Is the film to "rah rah"c Is the "real" Chris Kyle at all similar to the character portrayed by Bradley Cooperc And on and on... However, one topic concerning the film I find somewhat hilarious and I'm glad people are bringing it up is the fake baby used in the feature. I'm glad because during my screening of the film when the scene below played I leaned over to the person next to me and said, "I think that's a fake baby. »

Paul Newman’s salad dressing enterprise is common knowledge, but did you know about these 25 businesses run by Hollywood stars?
What do big-time movie stars get up to in their spare time? While their fictional counterparts might enjoy chopping wood or getting hosed down by friendly females (more on that here), actors themselves have a tendency towards wacky entrepreneurial ideas and hefty industrial investments.
Looking at our findings from some rigorous research (read: Googling), it seems that you can divide famous actors into a handful of groups – those who are trying to do something good for the world, those who are trying to break into internet megabucks and those who like opening restaurants.
Without further chit-chat, here’s a breakdown of which stars are behind which brands which you may or may not know and love…
Here’s a brilliant one to start off with »
Hannah Horvath kicks off Season 4 of Girls with a surprising display of maturity and selflessness — offering a toast to her parents for “the massive amount of love and support you have shown me in the four years since I graduated from college.”
Fret not, though, just a few seconds later, the poster girl for infuriatingly entitled twentysomethings drops the proverbial, gnarly housefly into the champagne. “And I just wanna say that even in moments when, superficially, it didn’t seem like you were supporting me — and it seemed like you were criticizing my choices and doubting my talent — I know »

There’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, Jurassic World, as well as new installments of Fast & Furious, Bond, and Terminator. The familiar franchises are being rolled out with marked regularity. The risk averse movies that have built in audiences and an almost zero chances of failure. But what about the other big budget films? The ones that aren’t such a ‘sure thing’ Here’s a look at some of 2015’s most interesting gambles.
I know, you’re skeptical. And you’re right to be. First off, it’s the Wachowskis who have been more ‘miss’ than ‘hit’ since The Matrix came out in 1999. Even if you liked the sequels, »

We’ve already had sneaky peek at the style of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. big-screen reboot in the still we covered last year, and now we get to see two of the main stars on their scooters, being seemingly quirky. Directed by Guy Ritchie, we’re sure to get some snappy edits and quick comedy from the pair if his Sherlock is anything to go by but beyond that…I just don’t know what to expect.
Set at the height of the Cold War, CIA agent Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavil) and Kgb agent Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer) must put aside longstanding hostilities to team up on a joint mission to stop a mysterious international criminal organization, which is bent on destabilizing the fragile balance of power through the proliferation of nuclear weapons and technology.

It's unclear when we'll get our first look at The Man from U.N.C.L.E. trailer, but Warner Bros. has been keeping a steady stream of images flowing forth. Today, we get yet another new photo featuring the film's two leads, Henry Cavill (best known as Superman in the Man of Steel series) and Armie Hammer (The Lone Ranger). This time they've hijacked a Vespa, which can only mean we're getting that rarest of action scenes: The Scooter chase!
A fresh take on the hugely popular 1960s television series, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is set against the backdrop of the early 1960s, at the height of the Cold War and centers on CIA agent Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill) and Kgb agent Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer). Forced to put aside longstanding hostilities, the two team up on a joint mission to stop a mysterious international criminal organization, which is bent on destabilizing the »
Last month brought the first official image from this year's classic television adaptation The Man from U.N.C.L.E. starring Man of Steel lead Henry Cavill and Lone Ranger star Armie Hammer. We're still waiting for some kind of teaser trailer (though the film doesn't arrive until August, so we might be waiting a little while). But in the meantime, a second photo of our leading men has popped up, and it gives us a little comedic flare from the film directed by Guy Ritchie (Sherlock Holmes, Snatch). It features Cavill and Hammer on a scooter, presumably somewhere in Europe, maybe in the middle of a chase. Look below! Here's the new photo from Guy Ritchie's The Man from U.N.C.L.E. from USA Today: At the height of the Cold War, CIA agent Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavil) and Kgb agent Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer) must put aside longstanding hostilities to team up »

We're still waiting on a trailer for Guy Ritchie's adaption of the cult t.v. show The Man From U.N.C.L.E , another image has dropped, courtesy of USA Today's 2015 'Geek Movie Preview'. While the first still from the movie showed off the 60's style and tone, this one suggests a bit more of the tongue in cheek humour featuring a very "Ooohh Matron" shot of Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill) and Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer). Released: August 14th 2015 »

Little Harper is certainly flying in style—although she doesn't seem to be amused! Armie Hammer's wife Elizabeth Chambers took to Twitter on Wednesday to share an image of their family soaring high in the sky in a helicopter. The sweet shot, which features Elizabeth, Armie and the couple's newborn baby girl, who is now officially one month old, was taken in the cockpit of the plane and shows the lovebirds beaming from ear to ear. Harper, however, appears much-less amused, flashing a giant yawn for the photo as she rests peacefully in her father's arms. Oh, and take we talk about that adorable onesies? Yeah, she's killing us with cuteness. "To grandmother's (and »
