Things kicked off to a rocky start when the Pretty Woman star and the survival expert flew into Kenya and endured something of a rough landing that had Roberts screaming the entire time.
However, that wasn't nearly as nerve-wracking as what happened when Roberts and Grylls had to get across a gorge on a rickety bridge hanging above a dangerous river filled with hungry crocodiles.

"We’ve come to a bridge that crosses a river full of crocs," Roberts explained to the cameras. "I'm just [dripping] with sweat due to nerves. I'm very afraid of heights and I always have been."
As Roberts was buckled into her harness -- which would hopefully keep her safe in the »

Andy Cohen has taken his hit late night live talk show to the west coast for the week. And in an exclusive clip from Wednesday’s Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, the 48-year-old recreates a scene from one of Hollywood’s most famous rom-coms — with the help of a Real Housewife, of course.
Shopping off Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills for some new duds, Cohen — dressed in flip-flops, short shorts, and a sleeveless Erika Jayne Xxpen$Ive T-shirt — steps into a high-end fashion boutique where he’s greeted by a surly sales clerk who isn’t too excited to wait on him. »

Lily Collins is no stranger when it comes to making bold red carpet choices — and, as her looks at the Cannes Film Festival this week have proved, she’s all about bold beauty looks, too.
The 28-year-old star landed in the French Riviera four days ago, and hasn’t stopped switching up her hair looks since. She’s debuted everything from faux bangs to a sleek and slick ponytail, proving no hair look is off limits. Of course, she’s had some help: Collins turned to celebrity hairstylist and Ouai founder Jen Atkin — who’s best known for being the »

The 49-year-old actress, who is mother to twins Hazel and Phinnaeus, 12, and Henry, 9, stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Friday and told the host that parenting is all about trial and error.
"Well, it's going to be so fun," Roberts told DeGeneres. "They are a great couple and I think they don't need advice from me or anyone else because, also, nobody's there with you at 3 o'clock in the morning when you're just going, 'What am I doing? Where did they come from and when are they going?'"
"And then you sort of get through it and figure it out," she added. "And everybody does, and it's a »
Lights, camera, fashion! Shawna Craig is getting a complete wardrobe makeover at the hands of Katie Cazorla for her upcoming headshot photo shoot in this sneak peek from tonight's all-new episode of Second Wives Club. "I feel like this is my Pretty Woman moment!" Shawna gushes. Katie agrees, joking, "Except, you don't have to f--k me!" Katie's stylist Jeresa then chooses a series of career-driven outfits for Lorenzo Lamas' wife to model following Tania Mehra's previous attempt at rehabbing Shawna's closet. "I bet you a million f--king dollars Tania doesn't own a blazer," Katie says. "It's like swimsuits with the crotch cut out and, you »
A rep for the House of Chanel says the company is sorry Gabourey Sidibe "felt unwelcome and offended" at one of its stores. In an essay published in Lena Dunham and Girls showrunner Jenni Konner's Lenny Letter this week, the Oscar-nominated actress said she tried to buy a pair of glasses and a pair of sandals for Empire co-star Taraji P. Henson at a Chanel store near her apartment in Chicago and was initially snubbed by a saleswoman, saying about her Pretty Woman-like moment, "I suspect it's because I'm black, but it could also be because I'm fat." "Chanel expresses our sincerest regret for the boutique customer »
Actors regret roles they didn’t take all the time. It’s a natural part of Hollywood. What one actor or agent may think of the potential of a movie role, another actor or agent might think the opposite. It’s why we have so many fun articles on the “What could have beens.” Things like what if Molly Ringwald accepted the lead role in Pretty Woman? Stuff like that. On the other side of the spectrum are the roles that actors should most regret playing. You know, stuff like “what would have happen had Elizabeth Berkley not starred in Showgirls?” One actor

With Actors, Directors, Actresses and Screenwriters under our collective belt and Cinematographers still to come, we presently turn our eye towards Composers, whose music lends so much to the films they work on.
As with the other lists, credit is given for not merely one or two sterling scores, but rather a consistently excellent body of work with specific stand-out films. To be blunt, this is a trickier prospect than it at first appears. Just because a film is terrific or well-loved doesn’t necessarily mean that the score is itself a standout. We begin with perhaps the most obvious and celebrated film composer of them all…..
Goodness me. The Poseidon Adventure, The Towering Inferno, Earthquake, Jaws, Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Long Goodbye, Catch Me If You Can, Star Wars, Close Encounters, Star Wars, Superman, Et, Born on the Fourth of July, »

On Monday's Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, the 52-year-old actress recalled going out for the role of prostitute Vivian Ward, which ultimately went to Julia Roberts. Lane said "everybody in town went for that role," but at the time, it was a very different film.
In the beloved 1990 romantic comedy, businessman (Richard Gere) needs an escort for some social events, and hires a beautiful prostitute (Roberts) he meets on Hollywood Boulevard. After a whirlwind weekend, the two fall in love.
"It turned out to be a feel-good movie," she explained. "Originally, this crazy b**ch was kicked out of a rolling limo at the end because she was delusional that she thought this guy was really in love with her. She was only hired for the weekend, and we had »
Here’s the story of one of those fellas you pass by almost everyday, if you live in one of the big cities. And if your city has a bustling business district (like Wall Street in NYC, La Salle Street in Chicago, etc.), the chances are much greater. They shuffles about, slightly disheveled, in a suit that’s definitely seen better days. Though the suit is in better shape than the shoes, which they try to save by avoiding taxis and taking public transit only when the weather turns especially nasty. These men facing middle age (and often past) aren’t homeless, but barely head there for just a few hours of rest, You could call them investment hustlers. “schmoozers”, or, as this story’s lead character’s dusty sleeve of cards proclaim, “business consultant”. Inside their worn overcoat is a bulging frayed address book along with a legal pad to connect their , um, »

*Caution: Spoilers Ahead!*
Monday's Dancing With the Stars celebrated show business with its fun A Night at the Movies week, where each couple based their solo dances on film genres. However, in the spirit of Hollywood drama, this week also saw the season's first double elimination, meaning two stars and their pro-partners were sent packing.
After all the routines had been danced and all the scores and votes weighed and measured, three couples found themselves in jeopardy: David Ross and Lindsay Arnold, Nick Viall and Peta Murgatroyd, as well as Nancy Kerrigan and Artem Chigvintsev.
Surprisingly, Ross and Arnold were spared from getting the axe, meaning Viall and Kerrigan were cut from the competition. For Viall, the elimination was a long time coming, as he had often expressed his surprise at not getting sent home earlier.
However, Kerrigan's elimination was somewhat surprising, considering her record of solid performances week after week. She was at »

It's been 20 years since the 10-year reunion at the heart of Romy and Michele's High School Reunion, and it shows. Rewatching the movie now isn't just opening up a Pandora's box of '90s nostalgia; it's a burst of realizations that some weird sh*t happens in this movie . . . or at least, some weird sh*t happened in the '90s. To mark the anniversary of the movie - and let me say again, damn, it came out 20 years ago (which means Romy and Michele graduated 30 years ago), I rewatched it, and I have some thoughts.

The 52nd Karlovy Vary International Film Festival (June 30 - July 8) will present a Crystal Globe for outstanding contribution to world cinema to British director Ken Loach.
The award will be shared with his long-time screenwriter Paul Laverty. The pair have collaborated on twelve feature films and two shorts, including The Wind That Shakes The Barley and more recently the Palme d’Or and Bafta-winning I, Daniel Blake.
Loach has a long and fruitful relationship with the Karlovy Vary festival. In 1968, his feature debut Poor Cow won a special jury prize and best actress for its star Carol White. A year later, his second film Kes won the festival’s Crystal Globe, and he has been a guest at the festival on numerous occasions since.
