Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Video: Rebecca Strips Down for Her Sexiest Song Yet

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Video: Rebecca Strips Down for Her Sexiest Song Yet
When Crazy Ex-Girlfriend star Rachel Bloom says that Friday’s episode (The CW, 8/7c) features “the sexiest song we’ve ever done”… well, that’s saying a lot. (Sexier than “The Sexy Getting Ready Song”? “We Tapped That Ass”? “Heavy Boobs”???)

In her ongoing effort to annihilate Josh Chan, Rebecca turns to the worst person she knows: her amoral boss, Nathaniel. “Strip Away My Conscience” — which you can watch in full above — is a jazzy, Bob Fosse-style number, with Rebecca doing a striptease for Nathaniel, flanked by scantily clad backup dancers, and tempting him to teach her how to be bad like him.

Michelle Pfeiffer’s ‘Mommy Lens’ Woke Her Up to Consumer Safety Issues

Michelle Pfeiffer’s ‘Mommy Lens’ Woke Her Up to Consumer Safety Issues
Michelle Pfeiffer didn’t think much about whether or not the cosmetics she used or the food she ate was safe until she became a mother.

“Like a lot of women I was clueless about a lot of these issues until I had children and started looking at the world through their eyes,” the Oscar-nominated star of “Dangerous Liaisons” and “The Fabulous Baker Boys” tells Variety. “I started thinking more about what I bought. I really benefited health-wise from looking at the world through my new mommy lens.”

But even as Pfeiffer realized she needed to know more about toxic chemicals and questionable consumer products, she struggled to find a resource to keep her informed. That’s where Environmental Working Group came in. From shoddy sunscreen to contaminated tap water, the nonprofit research and advocacy group educates consumers and citizens about public safety issues.

“The environment is not remote or separate from us,” says

Michelle Pfeiffer on Her Hollywood Hiatus and Return to Superhero Films

Michelle Pfeiffer on Her Hollywood Hiatus and Return to Superhero Films
The cinema gods broke the mold when they made Michelle Pfeiffer.

In her greatest performances, as say, Susie Diamond or Catwoman, she’s achingly beautiful and unapologetically ballsy. Whether slinking across a grand piano while crooning “Makin’ Whoopee” or fending off Batman with a bullwhip, Pfeiffer conveys an inner strength, but also a flicker of vulnerability. In the late 1980s and ’90s, few stars blazed brighter. But as the aughts dawned, Pfeiffer stepped away from Hollywood to focus on raising her two children.

“It wasn’t a conscious choice to not work for five years,” Pfeiffer says. “It was just as my kids got older it got harder. They were school age, and I couldn’t schlep all around the world and disrupt their routines. I set down so many restrictions about when and where I could be on location that I became kind of unhirable.”

From 2004 to 2007, for instance, she

Tiff Review: ‘The Wife’ Provides Glenn Close with One of Her Finest Performances

Playing Joan, the wife of a newly-announced Nobel Prize-winning novelist Joseph (Jonathan Pryce) whose career she has supported while setting her own ambitions aside, Glenn Close gives one of her finest performances in Björn Runge’s latest feature. The actress is magnificent and exudes a hypnotic screen presence in the affecting drama, aptly titled The Wife.

Runge’s film opens as the couple first receive news that Joseph has won the prize. They jump up and down on the bed like giddy children as he chants “I won the Nobel Prize.” As the significance sinks in and the full implications bear down, Joan abruptly stops celebrating and leaves the room. Things don’t get any better once they arrive in Sweden in preparation for Stockholm ceremony. Joan is clearly deeply annoyed by something and we can only guess what.

The Truth Behind JFK’s Mobbed Up Mistress — and What She Might Have Known About the Assassination

The Truth Behind JFK’s Mobbed Up Mistress — and What She Might Have Known About the Assassination
President John F. Kennedy‘s tendency toward extramarital romances has been well-documented in the decades since his assassination – but did one of his relationships play a direct role in his untimely death?

Judith Exner famously had a 2½-year affair with JFK, ending in 1962 – just one year before his assassination in Dallas.

Now – ahead of the 18th anniversary of her death at age 65 after a battle with breast cancer – People is looking back on her stunning 1977 memoir, which was full of revelations about the president’s much-debated relationship with the mob.

The Wilde Wedding – Review

With the big end of the year holidays still a couple of weeks away, what kind of big event can gather a big family (or a diverse acting ensemble)? It’s gotta’ be a comedy so a funeral is probably out of the question, although both the British and Us versions of Death At A Funeral are pretty darned hilarious. No, there’s got to be a romantic angle, so the setting should probably be a wedding. Film makers have used them for lots of comedies that are ripe with conflict from all the versions of Father Of The Bride to those big cast showcases like Robert Altman’s A Wedding and the big, big superstar-studded , appropriately named The Big Wedding just three years ago. And like that flick, some of the exes are involved, upping the tension and making for The Wilde Wedding that lives up to its name

The Wife review – Glenn Close is unreadably brilliant as author's spouse plunged in late-life crisis

As the apparently-perfect wife of a Nobel prize-winning writer, Close gives arguably her best ever performance in an adaptation of Meg Wolitzer’s novel

“There’s nothing more dangerous than a writer whose feelings have been hurt.” The speaker is Joan Castleman, the charming, enigmatically discreet and supportive wife of world-famous author and New York literary lion Joe Castleman. It is a fascinating and bravura performance from Glenn Close, in this hugely enjoyable dark comedy from director Björn Runge, adapted by Jane Anderson from the novel by Meg Wolitzer. Perhaps it’s Close’s career-best – unnervingly subtle, unreadably calm, simmering with self-control. Her Joan is a study in marital pain, deceit and the sexual politics of prestige. It’s a portrayal to put alongside Close’s appearances in Dangerous Liaisons and Fatal Attraction. This is an unmissable movie for Glenn Close fans. Actually, you can’t watch it without becoming

Stephen Frears to Receive Award at Venice Film Festival

Stephen Frears to Receive Award at Venice Film Festival
British filmmaker Stephen Frears is to be awarded the Jaeger-LeCoultre Glory to the Filmmaker award at this year’s 74th Venice Film Festival. The award celebrates a filmmaker who is considered to have made an original contribution to innovation in contemporary cinema.

Stephen Frears seems to challenge the very idea of a monolithic definition of his cinema,” Alberto Barbera, director of the festival, said in a statement. “Along with Ken Loach and Mike Leigh, he is one of the most vibrant and representative exponents of contemporary British cinema.”

Frears, who received Oscar nominations for “The Grifters” and “The Queen,” returns to Venice this year for a fifth time with his new film “Victoria & Abdul,” which reunites him with “Philomena” star Judi Dench. Frears has competed for the Golden Lion at four previous Venice festivals with “Liam” (2000), “Dirty Pretty Things” (2002), “The Queen” (2006) and “Philomena” (2013). All four films won festival prizes, but Frears has yet to claim the coveted
