Beyoncé, Angelina Jolie and Oprah Winfrey Among Forbes' Most Powerful Women
Who run the world? Girls. Beyoncé's lyrics reign true as Forbes' has unveiled their annual World's Most Powerful Women List, which features 100 of the fiercest females ranked by wealth, media momentum and social impact. Unsurprisingly Jay-z's missus landed a top spot on the list coming in at No. 17, but she was no match for Oprah Winfrey, who nabbed the No. 13 slot, falling a little from No. 11 last year. Angelina Jolie (No. 37), Shakira (No. 52) and Gisele Bündchen (No. 95) are also featured on this year's list, not for their beauty or Tinseltown success, but for their efforts with the United Nations. Sofia Vergara, who co-owns LatinWE came in at No. 38, suggesting a new kind »
Ryan Gosling's 'Only God Forgives': Critics Really, Really Hate the Crime Drama
Ryan Gosling must be feeling pretty happy about his decision to skip the red carpet at Cannes this year. Critics at the Riviera film festival vivisected "Only God Forgives," his ultra-violent collaboration with Nicolas Winding Refn, leaving it as bruised and battered as the hunky star appears in promotional art for the film. Winding Refn, the enfant terrible of Danish film, previously teamed with Gosling on "Drive," earning a Best Director award at Cannes in 2011 for his hallucinatory crime story. Once again, the screen pulsates with all manner of blood-letting »

American Horror Story Casts Emma Roberts
American Horror Story has cast Emma Roberts in the upcoming witch-centric, New Orleans–set third season. According to TVLine, Roberts — whose Fox pilot didn't get picked up — will play a "self-involved party girl." She joins Ahs returning cast members Taissa Farmiga, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Francis Conroy, and Jessica Lange, as well as fellow new members of the fold Gabourey Sidibe, Kathy Bates, Angela Basset, and Patti Lupone. Ahs: Coven doesn't start up until October, but baffling horrors and disfiguring surprises surround us at all times. »

Nashville Finale: Clare Bowen Says to 'Expect the Unexpected'
As Scarlett O'Connor on Nashville, Clare Bowen portrays the quintessential country crooner with a heart of gold, but the reality of the actress and singer's life may surprise you. The Australian native (yes, that's right) has come to be known for her character's folksy duets with costar Sam Palladio (who plays Gunnar Scott) like "When the Right One Comes Along." Leading in to Wednesday's finale, Bowen, 24, talks to People about her accent, moving to the States, and what's next for the just-signed Scarlett. I have a friend who says "When the Right One Comes Along" is going to be her wedding song. »

The Hangover Part III Premieres In London
A pleasant, sunny evening in London last night was torn by screams and hysteria as The Hangover Part III premiered in Leicester Square. The cast were all present, along with director Todd Phillips, to launch the film's UK premiere, but miraculously none of them mutilated themselves or one another, had a close encounter with a hooker or molested a wild animal. At least, that we know of. Perhaps that was the after-party. brightcove.createExperiences();This third - and, we're told, final - instalment of the series sees Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms) and Doug (Justin Bartha) stage an intervention for Alan (Zach Galifianakis), who is off his meds and not doing too well following the death of his father (Jeffrey Tambor). Unfortunately, all goes wrong when they're kidnapped by Marshall (John Goodman), who holds Doug hostage and orders the rest to find Leslie Chow (Ken Jeong) and find the gold Chow stole from Marshall, »
First trailer for Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Don Jon: watch now
The first trailer has arrived online for Don Jon, Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s directorial debut about a Jersey guy obsessed with the gym, his family, chasing girls... and porn. Gordon-Levitt stars in the title role as a Jersey Shore-esque character, with an unhealthy smut addiction that proves surprisingly hard to kick, even when he hooks up with Scarlett Johansson. She, understandably, isn’t best pleased. But is Jgl’s addiction any more damaging then her obsession with rom-coms? The answer is probably yes... Take a look at the new...

With Fast & Furious 6 currently riding high at the UK box-office, attention is beginning to turn towards the seventh episode in the series, with Vin Diesel revealing that the next film will see the action return to La. The last two films have seen Diesel and the gang gunning their engines all across the globe, but according to the star, he’s keen to see the franchise return to its roots for part seven. “I told the Universal people there was no way we were not having a Los Angeles premiere,” said Diesel of the sixth film. “One other...

Zack Snyder talks his approach to Superman
With Man Of Steel looming on the horizon, Zack Snyder has been talking about what sets his version of Superman apart from those that have gone before. Speaking in reference to the way the character has been tweaked and jazzed-up in the likes of Smallville and some of the more recent DC comics, Snyder suggests that any attempt to reinvent Superman is totally missing the point. “When they try to dress him up… put him in jeans and a t-shirt or a leather jacket with an S on it, I go, ‘What? Guys, it’s okay. It’s Superman. He’s the king...

Exclusive: Ryan Gosling talks Wooters on Gangster Squad DVD Extra

Michael Cera and Alia Shawkat talk about returning to the roles of loving cousins for 'Arrested Development'
When I first heard about "Arrested Development," the synopsis I read included a description of the relationship between George Michael Bluth (Michael Cera) and Maeby Funke (Alia Shawkat), and my first thought was that it sounded incredibly tasteless and silly. Now, of course, I'd say the opposite. I think the way the relationship between the two of them has been handled over the course of the show speaks to the way Mitchell Hurwitz and his amazing writing staff handle even the most difficult material. George Michael and Maeby are better people than any of the adults in their families. Maeby is »

Toby Jones talks Arnim Zola’s return in Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Toby Jones is one of the original ensemble confirmed for a return in superhero sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and has given a little briefing as to what we can expect from his character in the new film. Jones plays Arnim Zola, the Nazi scientist who assisted the Red Skull in the first film, but it sounds as though he’ll be appearing in a very different form in the sequel... "All I can say about it is that I was pleased to be brought back," says Jones. "I thought I might be - because you'd know better than I do - but Zola...

Last Night on Late Night: J.J. Abrams Presented a Deleted Benedict Cumberbatch Shower Scene from Star Trek
Last night on Conan, J.J. Abrams addressed criticism of Star Trek Into Darkness for its gratuitous display of so much of Alice Eve's skin, for which writer Damon Lindelof has already apologized. "I don’t think I quite edited the scene in the right way, but to me it was sort of a balance," explained Abrams. "There’s a scene earlier where [Kirk isn't] dressed either [because (spoiler!) he's getting up from a threesome with two alien ladies].” To make up for the imbalance of objectification, Abrams presented a deleted scene where Benedict Cumberbatch is showering in all his "evil" six-pack glory. Plus: Elizabeth Moss found her first New York apartment the way most of us do — on Craigslist. Also, Vin Diesel stands by his opinion that Hollywood is tougher on men to maintain a certain physique. (See: Cumberbatch shower scene.) "Female actors don't feel compelled to take steroids," he asserted. But as Jay »

Universal planning Timecop reboot
With studios continuing to raid their vaults for vintage action franchises to reboot, Universal has stumbled upon sci-fi caper Timecop, and has decided it’s time for an update. Set in the near future, the original film plays out in a world where time travel has become possible, but is strictly regulated by the police. Van Damme played a copper who discovers a crooked politician using the technology to further his political career, and sets about bringing him to justice. Details concerning the proposed reboot are few and far...

Ciara's Nicki Minaj Track 'I'm Out' Is Massive
Ciara's self-titled fifth album — her first since 2010's Basic Instinct — is coming this July, a factoid lots more people will stay aware of after hearing this volcano of a track. (Spin did warn us that lead single "Body Party" is the only ballad on the record.) Album opener "I'm Out" starts with a brief melodic intro from Ciara, then Nicki Minaj erupts into some of her most unrepentantly aggressive bars in a good while. ("I'm Nicki and Weezy and Baby," spat at full velocity, is a standout — Nicki's only one Drake short of saying she is Young Money). Then Ciara's fire, burning squarely in the single ladies department, stacks up to Nicki's pretty effortlessly. Now we've gotta hear "Super Turnt Up," the track listed as "featuring Ciara," despite the fact it's on a Ciara album called Ciara. »

Watch: J.J. Abrams counters 'Star Trek' sexism claims with Cumberbatch shower scene
Amidst the public controversy over that now-infamous Alice Eve underwear scene in "Star Trek Into Darkness" (recently addressed by screenwriter Damon Lindelof via Twitter), director J.J. Abrams took to "Conan" this evening to address the claims of sexism that have dogged him ever since the film's release. “She’s changing, and the idea was, the intent was, it’s Kirk [Chris Pine], who was always a womanizing character…the idea was have a beat like that in the midst of all this action and adventure," explained Abrams in his trademark my-mouth-can't-keep-up-with-my-brain cadence. "Have a beat where he looks and doesn’t look away. I don’t »
