Nobody came right out and said it, but this week’s installment of Mistresses implied that our favorite hot mess Karen Kim is presently operating at such a supercharged sexual frequency that her decision to engage in some sizzling hotel-room foreplay caused an earthquake across the greater Los Angeles area.

To paraphrase Mick Jagger, she makes a grown man cry (out like a frightened toddler), then hide for cover beneath the bathroom door frame. The only problem with sex that good? Sometimes all the writhing »
Boom! Bang! Pow!
Nope, that wasn’t the echo of July 4th fireworks, but rather, the sound of your head exploding with fresh intel about the latter half of Mistresses‘ second season.
And while there aren’t any literal incendiary devices planned — not that we know of, anyhow — there will be potentially forbidden flirtations, dangerous dalliances and unwelcome appearances by (uh-oh!) undead husbands.
TVLine caught up with executive producers Rina Mimoun and Kj Steinberg to preview the show’s upcoming spate of episodes — specifically, to find out whether Joss-Harry ‘shippers have reason for optimism, why Savi’s been so reluctant to tell Dom about Zack, »
An all-important, brand-spankin’-new fifth lead character arrived on the scene during tonight’s installment of Mistresses. That she did so in a slinky black dress, with a fresh glass of chardonnay (in. her. hand.), lies slipping off her tongue and a hint of danger in her eyes makes said arrival a cause for celebration. So let’s give a slow clap for (and raise a glass of, well, anything to)… Jennifer!
Deutschmarks or dollars… American Express will do nicely, thank you!
Simon Pegg is known best for fleeing zombies, solving small-town crimes, and trying to escape the end of the world. But now he’s found himself with a relatively simpler goal: to find happiness.
A new promo for Hector and the Search for Happiness shows Pegg as a young London psychiatrist who’s married to Rosamund Pike (The World’s End, Pride and Prejudice)—yet somehow deeply unfulfilled. So Hector decides to jet around the world, asking strangers in foreign countries to explain what makes them smile. The whole thing bears a resemblance to a certain 2010 film about another soul-searching world traveler. »

Feminine roles in cinema vary as there are different types of female empowerment displayed on the big screen. The same can be said for the showcasing the vulnerability of women in the movies as well. From motherhood to savvy businesswomen women have been either represented with integrity or misrepresented with exploitative intent.
One of the most explosive roles for women in motion pictures have been in the titillating realm of prostitution. Whether considered controversial, inspirational or observational the concept of women selling sex and demonstrating sensuality poses may ethical questions in cinema. Are movies that stress moral dilemmas with femininity and flesh-pedaling philosophies a challenging venture or easy pickings for sensational themes in films?
Whatever the case the prospect of fast females in film presents somewhat of a sociological/psychological experimentation. May it be through the lens of declaration, discovery or despair She Works Hard for the Money: The Top »

The classic western mini-series Lonesome Dove rides back to Reelz starting Saturday at 8pm Et/5pm Pt. Its all star cast includes the young, sweet-faced Diane Lane playing the cutest, nicest, most loyal prostitute we've ever seen. In honor of Lane's Lorena Wood, we decided to put together a list of our all-time favorite hookers with hearts of gold. They may walk the streets, but these ladies have still managed to capture our hearts.
Lorena Wood from Lonesome Dove
There’s no doubt that Diane Lane’s old west working girl is not your typical lady of the night. For one, she seems to mostly work during the daytime, and two she’ll only accept a “poke” from a customer she likes. It might not be the best business model, but since half the town of Lonesome Dove is in love with her, she can make it work.

What's in a name? Would Edge of Tomorrow be as appealing to audiences with its original title, All You Need Is Kill? Probably not, reasoned those who decided to change the title of the Warner Bros. film starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, which hits theaters on Friday. Long known as All You Need Is Kill after the book on which Edge of Tomorrow is based, the movie's moniker was changed to get rid of "kill." Edge is just the latest film to alter its previously well-known title prior to its release. Other famous examples include Pretty Woman, originally

Not even Neil Patrick Harris's comically camp performance (or his pooing twice inside a hat) could salvage the film, which was summed up by Digital Spy as "a giant tumbleweed of a comedy drifting aimlessly through a laugh-free desert".
1. Jonah Hex (2010)
This fantasy Western blockbuster derived from a DC Comics character fell flat on its (criminally disfigured) face upon its release, making a measly $10 million at the box office before sinking without trace. Despite Josh Brolin's best efforts as the lead and Michael Fassbender's brilliantly terrifying bowler-hat-wearing brute Burke, the movie was criticised for being edited within an inch of its short life, so »
Director: Stacie Passon.
Running Time: 93 minutes.
Synopsis: Abby Ableman (Abby Weigert) has become disillusioned with her wife and children. After suffering an accidental concussion at the hands of her son, she looks for a means of escape and becomes a prostitute for other women.
If Jaws is not really about a shark, then Concussion is not really about sex. It is a character study of a woman seeking more from her pleasant but unsatisfying life. Creatively treading water and barely touched by her wife, she seeks excitement outside of the family which draws her into becoming a sex worker.
This is not a film that vilifies prostitution, nor does it glamourise it. While she works the high-end, she is never seen parading around Pretty Woman style with designer bags and a grin you could hurl a discus into. Nor »

We know Barbara Walters as an intense broadcast journalist who knows how to ask tough questions. But in Vanity Fair’s new profile of the View co-host, we learn that she’s not very into being on the other side of an interview; in fact, the magazine says that she even offered to write the story herself.
Still, Vf did manage to get a few personal tidbits out of Walters, including why the View ladies don’t take pee breaks and the one time Walters broke during a interview.Check out a few highlights below:

Prom season is upon us, and there's no better way to prepare for all the upcoming celebrations than looking back at vintage pictures of our favorite celebrities! Jimmy Kimmel had that same genius idea when he put Julia Roberts on the spot earlier this week and revealed her old prom pic on Jimmy Kimmel Live. The late-night talk show host surprised the Oscar winner and whipped out a framed vintage photo, which proved that the 46-year-old has definitely aged gracefully. "You look exactly the same! How is that possible?" Kimmel exclaimed. "It really is remarkable!" The Pretty Woman beauty flashes her signature megawatt smile in the snapshot, along with some rather big, voluminous curls, which »
She may look wholesome on the outside, but Julia Roberts told Ellen DeGeneres Wednesday that she is no stranger to getting some ink. "Yes, I have a few," the Oscar winner, 46, said of her tattoos, turning coy, however, as to their locations as she was moved to tears of laughter on Wednesday's The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "Some things I can tell you the answer to, and some things I'll tell you later," Roberts said about their placements. "Aren't you just rethinking me completely now?" she added with a look to the audience. Her gallery of tattoos include all of her »

The decision to change the last Hobbit film’s name got us thinking about big movie name changes that have happened over the years, and whether those changes actually helped or hurt the film. We’ve rounded up 23 of the most memorable changes to decide if the films were named correctly, or if they had it right the first time:
Original name: Fruitvale
Final name: Fruitvale Station
For better or worse? In terms of marketing, this was a smart move, because the story was more easily recognizable with the new title. That being said, it’s a very literal title. »

New York, April 25: Richard Gere was offered a bag of food by a woman recently, who took him to be some homeless man roaming on the streets.
According to New York Post, 64-year-old Golden Globe-winning star, who was playing the role of a homeless man for his upcoming film 'Time Out of Mind', was so convincing that women failed to recognize him.
But the 'Pretty Woman' star continued to play the part without disclosing his identity and happily took the bag thanking the woman for her kindness.
The actor, who sported a ski cap and scruffy facial hair, was dressed in tattered clothes while he munched on a burger from. »

Why are more and more Americans falling under the sudsy spell of South Korean dramas? One theory: These shows tend to come in self-contained 16- to 20-episode seasons, making them easily digestible. Another: If you don’t speak Korean, watching one demands your full attention (subtitles!), meaning you get sucked in that much more quickly.
And then there are the dramas themselves — endearingly theatrical and kooky, with a sweetness that can be tough to find in grittier American fare. “Their portrayal of love is a little more PG,” says Jacqueline Sia, senior content manager of massive international TV library DramaFever. »
