Lily Collins has a short new 'do! The "Mortal Instruments" star, who has previously chopped her long locks into a lob and then a bob, debuted her new pixie cut at Vanity Fair's Post-Oscars bash on Sunday night in Los Angeles. The actress took to Instagram to share a pic of her freshly-cut tresses, writing, "Step and... Repeat. @tricky44 and I on our last hurrah. Yes... I chopped it! #shortandlovingit." The 25-year-old beauty paired her pretty pixie with a revealing Zuhair Murad Couture wrap gown, which featured a plunging neckline and sheer sleeves and skirt. She opted for neutral makeup, keeping the focus on her short 'do and signature bold brows. The young starlet recently revealed her makeup mantra. "The less you have on your face, the less there is to go wrong," she told Glamour last year. "I'm not a fan of shading on eyes if I have a dark lip, »

Rosie (Collins) and Alex (Claflin) have been best friends since the age of five. Inseparable, the pair do everything together – including sharing a romantic (if drunk) kiss on Rosie’s 18th birthday. With plans to move away to America to study, it seems Rosie and Alex are destined to be together forever, maybe not romantically but as best friends/soulmates. However, the night of their prom leads Rosie down a completely different life path, »

The Mortal Instruments' film’s sequel might’ve been cancelled, but could a TV show deliver everything we want?
When Screen Gems and Constantin Film began production of The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones, they must have thought they were onto a winner. In 2010, the end of the Twilight Saga was in sight, and there looked to be an opportunity for a new Ya fantasy series to swoop in and nab its audience. The Mortal Instruments should’ve been the perfect successor, with its mixture of magic and romance, its sprawling fantastical world and vulnerable-yet-kickass heroine.
But when the first movie was released in 2013, it received negative reviews and a mediocre box office return. The sequel, City Of Ashes, had already been greenlit… but in the wake of the first film’s disappointing reception, it was first postponed and then cancelled altogether.

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
Will Smith was on "The Tonight Show" Thursday night. Since Jimmy Fallon is a self-described "classically trained beatboxer," he and Will beatboxed to "It Takes Two," using an iPad app. It took them a while to get into it, but it's good. Will also got the audience involved. It was a big night for performing to and with the audience, as you can see in other show videos below. Jeff Bridges - who has to be one of the best people on our planet - was on "Conan" and talked about his Super Bowl ad. You should watch his "Epic Omming Session" with Conan, Andy and the audience.

Love, Rosie's Sam Claflin and Lily Collins star as two friends who might just be meant for each other in the romantic film, which is based on a novel by the same writer who penned P.S. I Love You. The duo recently stopped by our La studios to talk about whether or not they believe in romantic fate, their tequila-drenched dance scene, and even Fifty Shades of Grey. Love, Rosie is in select theaters and on VOD this Friday. »
Updating My Best Friend's Wedding for the millennial set, director Christian Ditter's Love, Rosie casts a winsome Lily Collins in what might once have been Julia Roberts's role (think eyebrows, not teeth) — though in this case, marriage is no real obstacle to true love. Neither are children, differing lifestyles, or the Atlantic Ocean, at least in comparison to that dearest totem of romance writers: miscommunication. Rosie, adapted from a novel by P.S. I Love You author Cecelia Ahern, is less a story than a romantic long con: Rosie and her would-be paramour, childhood friend Alex (Sam Claflin), amass a lengthy paper trail of chats, text messages, and love letters quickly squirreled away by jealous spouses, only to do-si-do around the subject of »
Title: Love, Rosie Director: Christian Ditter Starring: Lily Collins, Sam Claflin, Suki Waterhouse, Jaime Winstone, Christian Cooke and Lily Laight Fearlessly pursuing your goals and dreams, no matter how many obstacles or conflicts stand in your way, is a praiseworthy stance not many people always have the courage to follow. But the two lead characters in director Christian Ditter’s new romantic comedy, ‘Love, Rosie,’ entrancingly proves that despite the continuous struggles people face in their personal and professional lives, their faith and persistence will lead them to their desires. The movie, which is based on Cecelia Ahearn’s acclaimed book, ‘Where Rainbows End,’ and penned by screenwriter Juliette Towhidi, mixes its [ Read More ]

Romantic comedies take more than their fair share of beatings from critics, who typically gripe about saccharine plots, thin characters and potentially hazardous amounts of schmaltz. There’s such a bias toward romcoms that most audiences outside of teenage girls tend to avoid them like the plague – and some films, like last year’s Blended, show that maybe there’s a good reason for that. But then comes along a film like Love, Rosie to prove that not every “chick flick” has to feel like pulling teeth.
You may not have heard of Love, Rosie. It features two sought-after Hollywood stars – Lily Collins of the now-stalled Mortal Instruments franchise, and Sam Claflin of the record-breaking Hunger Games franchise – yet received a tiny February release with little to no publicity, a surefire sign that execs aren’t holding their breath for sizeable returns. One has to wonder why its distributor isn »

"I know boy/girl friendships can be quite complicated sometimes," Alex (Sam Claflin) tells his bestie Rosie (Lily Collins) in "Love, Rosie." And while the film positions itself as a romantic comedy that will explore the knotty emotions that can arise when acquaintanceship turns to attraction, it actually doesn't. Instead, the movie, based on the book "Where Rainbows End" by Cecelia Ahearn (a wise choice on the behalf of the filmmakers to change the title), is the kind of tale about what happens when two people can't just say what they're feeling, and passive aggressively pursue other relationships, even though they really like each other. Yes, boy/girl relationships can be complicated, but sometimes, as these characters learn to the point of tedium, only as complicated as you make them out to be. Told through a not particularly well-conceived flashback device with intermittent voiceover narration, the movie starts twelve years ago, »

You’re supposed to spend a fair portion of your life finding the perfect person, and then spend the rest of your life with that person. Right?
But, what if you went about that the other way?
Well, sort of.
The potential sleeper hit that you can’t believe no one told you about, Love, Rosie, is hitting at the end of the week in limited release and VOD, and you have to check it out.
Based on the bestselling novel of the same name, if the movie comes together in a way that actually delivers, this should be one that you’ll remember for a long time. The trailer alone is more interesting than a lot of films hitting this year.

The all natural look is back with a vengeance thanks in part to celebrities posting make-up free selfies and the Spring 2015 runways embracing minimalistic beauty. The key is faking a flawless complexion with subtle enhancements. The no make-up, make-up look is the easiest way to create a youthful glow and it adds an effortless look to any outfit.
Get natural looking radiant skin like Gisele Bundchen and Jordana Brewster by starting with a moisturizer. Moisturizer hydrates the skin and adds to its luminosity. Apply a thin layer of tinted primer to help even out your complexion. Then smooth foundation under your eyes and over problem areas with a make-up sponge instead of concealer for a more natural, sheer finish.
Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson has signed on to star in the upcoming New Line romantic comedy How to Be Single, along with other new casting additions Rebel Wilson, Dan Stevens and Leslie Mann. Community star Alison Brie is also in final negotiations to join the cast. We first reported on the project back in February, when Lily Collins was in talks to come on board, but it isn't known if she is still involved, since she wasn't mentioned in The Hollywood Reporter's new report.
The story is adapted from Liz Tuccillo's 2008 novel of the same name, which will be an ensemble comedy featuring intersecting stories, in the same vein as Valentine's Day and He's Just Not That Into You. The plot focuses on the lifestyle of being single, from both the male and female perspectives, suggesting that it is our time out of relationships, not in them, »
Now this is a new kind of imitation game! During a recent appearance on Extra, Lily Collins looked just as charming as ever in a dainty floral Rachel Zoe design complete with school girl-esque buttoned cuffs and a white collar. In fact, she looked so charming that it made the eagle eyes over at Us Weekly do a double take—and realize that the dress is a dead-ringer for a Valentino frock. There a few differences in the Italian designer's rendition of the dress: The fall 2013 ready-to-wear piece uses a brighter floral print with pops of red and green, and features a more delicate scalloped hemline. The cuffs are slightly more trim and the collar more exaggerated, but that's pretty much it in the »
Seeing double! Proving that perhaps imitation is the sincerest form of flattery after all, Rachel Zoe created a seemingly Valentino-inspired look for less—and Lily Collins modeled the adorable result last night. The Love, Rosie actress, 25, visited Extra on Wednesday, Jan. 14, and she chose the stylist-turned-designer's sweet, white-collared floral frock for the occasion. Only, this wasn't the first time we've seen the look! In fact, Valentino debuted a very similar dress in its Fall 2013 Ready-to-Wear collection. Look closely: The Italian fashion house and Zoe, 43, both created [...] »
I've already listed my top ten most anticipated blockbusters of the new year and now I'll take a look at the rest of the field as I've done my best to whittle things down to an even twenty films. So before you get in a huff that your favorite franchises aren't listed, just remember you can view all my anticipated blockbusters right here, I simply didn't know how to write the headline other than to just say these were my most anticipated movies without any further distinction. That said, I think I have a nice rounded list for you here. Obviously several from the major studios, but also a few overseas entries to spice things up. Plenty of Tom Hardy and Jake Gyllenhaal and a couple starring Rachel Weisz along with several of my favorite directors coming with new films for the new year. If you're wondering where films such »

An adaptation of Cecelia Ahern’s best-selling novel, the British romantic comedy charts two BFFs – Rosie (Collins) and Alex (Claflin) – and their friendship over the course of several years. Things between the pals dramatically shift when Alex’s family moves to America, and they gamble everything to keep their connection alive.

He’s about to be a father, and Rosie is none too happy about it.
The Santa Barbara International Film Festival has unveiled its 2015 line-up which includes films representing 54 countries, 23 world premieres and 53 U.S. premieres. The U.S. premiere of Niki Caro’s McFarland USA will close out the 30th fest. Based on the 1987 true story and starring Kevin Costner and Maria Bello, the film follows novice runners from McFarland, an economically challenged town in California’s farm-rich Central Valley, as they give their all to build a cross-country team under the direction of Coach Jim White (Costner), a newcomer to their predominantly Latino high school. The unlikely band of runners overcomes the odds to forge not only a championship cross-country team but an enduring legacy as well.
The festival runs from January 27-February 7.

A self-acknowledged "showcase for Academy Award frontrunners," the Santa Barbara International Film Festival is often overlooked for the actual films that earn it festival status. An amalgamation of international discoveries and ’merica’s circuit highlights, the Sbiff curates a week of best-of-the-best to pair with their star-praising. The 2015 edition offers another expansive selection, bookended by two films that aren’t on any radars just yet. Sbiff will open with "Desert Dancer," producer Richard Raymond’s directorial debut. Starring Reece Ritchie and Frieda Pinto, the drama follows a group of friends who wave off the harsh political climate of Iran’s 2009 presidential election in favor of forming a dance team, picking up moves from Michael Jackson, Gene Kelly and Rudolf Nureyev thanks to the magic of YouTube. The festival will close with "McFarland, USA," starring Kevin Costner and Maria Bello. Telling the 1987 true story of a Latino high school’s underdog cross-country team, »
