Happy anniversary, Armie Hammer and Elizabeth Chambers! The couple celebrated five—yes, five!—years of wedded bliss on Friday, and Mrs. Hammer made sure to let her hubby (and social media) know she still feels like a newlywed. The 32-year-old TV host and bakery owner posted a handful of photos from her and the 28-year-old actor's wedding day to Instagram, captioning one particularly sweet snap, "Happy 5th Anniversary to the most perfect man I've ever known. The best friend, soulmate and everything in between." A friend of the couple's commented "to 50 more [anniversaries]," to which the still blushing bride replied, "at least!" The friend "agreed," »
For a movie that embraces its love of Los Angeles, Wednesday night’s preview screening of Warner Bros.’ “The Entourage Movie” could not have been at a more appropriate locale — Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Mansion in Holmby Hills.
About 50 guests, mostly male, took in the screening aimed at building buzz in advance of the June 3 opening. Hefner did not attend but made sure four Playboy Playmates (Alana Campos, Kayla Collins, Carly Lauren, Heather Rae Young) played host and welcomed guests in style.
Rhys Coiro, who plays Billy Walsh, the director of the fictional “Medellin” movie, was the only cast member to attend.
Private screenings have been held in recent months at Mark Wahlberg’s house in Los Angeles — attended by more than a dozen NBA players — and for the Wisconsin Badgers men’s basketball team and at Seattle Seahawks headquarters on Tuesday.
Laughter dominated throughout the 104-minute playing time, particularly for Kevin Dillon, »

Two years ago, I published an item asking whether the Lone Ranger was actually based on the exploits of a real life black hero. This was around the time that the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced recent version of the Lone Ranger story that starred Armie Hammer as the Ranger, and Johnny Depp as his trusted Indian sidekick, Tonto. That person was Bass Reeves (the gent pictured above with one helluva mustache) who, not surprisingly, was written out, or purposely overlooked in histories of the West, by historians (until recently), and who was the subject of a long overdue book written a few years years ago by Art Burton, titled "Black Gun, »

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 »

Actress Alicia Vikander is all the rage at the moment, and for good reason. She’s outstanding in Alex Garland’s tremendous sci-fi thriller Ex Machina, and fresh off that film’s success, she’s signing on to lead a very promising sounding project.
