Despite the fact that she chopped off her long, lush Hannah Montana locks in favor of a bolder and shorter 'do, Miley Cyrus has a tendency to get bored if she sticks to one look for a long period of time—which is why she loves her wigs! Last Halloween, the "Wrecking Ball" singer turned heads (and even caught the eye of Lil' Kim herself) when she stepped out in a bright purple wig and a skintight bodysuit complete with a nipple pastie, recreating the female rapper's unforgettable look from the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards. Miley has also played around with other fun styles, from a Julia Roberts-esque look from Pretty Woman to a wig that resembles her former long hairstyle. The singer »

Julia Roberts revealed to the September 2014 issue of InStyle magazine that she was almost the leading lady in the 1993 classic Sleepless in Seattle. While chatting about her alleged lack of ambition, the Oscar winner disclosed, "I'd been offered Sleepless in Seattle but couldn't do it. [Meg Ryan] and Tom Hanks are just such a jewel of a fit in that. I guess what they did for that moment in time is sort of what Richard [Gere] and I were doing across town (in the 1990 film Pretty Woman), you know?"

So there is this list on the internet that apparently contains every role Oscar winner Jeff Bridges has turned down in his career. And if you were to believe everything you read on the internet (and why wouldn’t you, right?), then Bridges was beaten out by Richard Gere twice—for An Officer and a Gentleman and Pretty Woman—and that audiences could have been “talking to” Bridges instead of Robert DeNiro in Taxi Driver. While promoting his new film The Giver, the actor sat down with EW’s Matt Bean for a Sirius Xm Town Hall Meeting and cleared some things up. »

This weekend, Megan Fox plays April O’Neil in Paramount’s “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” but she’s not the first actress to portray the character. In 1990, Judith Hoag originated the role of the intrepid reporter who befriends the pizza-loving heroes, although she almost turned down the part. “When I first heard of it, I thought it was a horror film,” Hoag recalls on a recent telephone call with Variety. “‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ is such a strange name. I wasn’t into the comic books at all.”
Hoag, 22 at the time, was in the middle of shooting the Robin Williams comedy “Cadillac Man,” and her schedule prevented her from committing to “Ninja Turtles.” Then the producers were able to make it work, and Hoag had to fly from New York to Wilmington, North Carolina, on the weekends for production. “People would be wondering where I would racing off to on a Friday, »

In movies, showers can be very scary places. Jack Nicholson in The Shining. Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction. Janet Leigh in Psycho. Those horrifying images are filed away in a cabinet in our brains forever. So it's no wonder that dogs - including Turner, from Turner & Hooch - have an aversion to the cells that spew water from a faucet on high. But here's a brave gal who's living it up like Julia Roberts in the tub in Pretty Woman - she's happy as a clam!The creator of the video writes that if you don't close the door to the bathroom, »

Over at The Telegraph, Robbie Collin has chosen to take on the impossible, he's set out to create a list of films that tells the story of Hollywood "in terms of how one picture or director led to the next." It's a daunting task that creates an interesting narrative and he prefaces his ten selections saying: ...none of the individual works is "great" or "important" enough to drown out the others. I've avoided films such as Citizen Kane, Vertigo, Singin' in the Rain, Casablanca, Gone with the Wind, Lawrence of Arabia and The Godfather, not just because we already know they're great, but because their greatness might throw the story off-balance - although I wouldn't hesitate to describe any of the films that are on this list as a masterpiece. So how does his list shape outc Have a look: One Week (1920) - dir. Buster Keaton It Happened One Night (1934) - dir. »

Forrest Gump first arrived in cinemas two decades ago, cementing Tom Hanks as an A-list movie star, winning a host of Oscars and spawning iconic quotes such as: "Life is like a box of chocolates..." You never know what you're going to get when perusing YouTube, and today's discovery just happens to be Hanks's original filmed audition for Robert Zemeckis.
We get to see Hanks alongside co-stars Robin Wright and Haley Joel Osment, but curiously missing is the Southern drawl we've come to love from the character. In the audition he's more Hanksy than Gumpy, but the character's naive charm is still evident.

This is just too awesome! During an interview with Matt Lauer on the Today show this week, Julia Roberts reflected on some of her iconic movie roles. When asked which one of her movies fans rave about most, the Oscar winner dished, "I hear Pretty Woman more than any other movie. And I kind of go, 'Any other decade? Anything a little closer?' And they go, 'No, that's the one for me. I sit with my mother and we watch that all the time.'" Lauer then revealed his favorite scene in Pretty Woman is when Roberts' character gets denied at a high-end boutique. "Do you remember what you say?" he asked. That's when Roberts perfectly recited her famous line from the »
Julia Roberts has said a number of memorable movie lines over her career, and she can still remember them. On Friday’s Today, the actress showed that she’s still able to recite, word-for-word, quotes from Pretty Woman and Notting Hill, with just a slight prompt from Matt Lauer. When asked whether she remembered those lines because they’re so well-known or if she can do that with all of her movies, Roberts said it’s likely the latter. “For the most part I probably can because you just grind it in there so hard so that it feels like your

Indeed it is sad news to acknowledge the passing of Emmy-winning and Oscar-nominated actor James Garner (1928-2014). The Hollywood icon Garner has endured a remarkable show business career during a five-plus decade stretch as he has entertained generations of TV and film audiences throughout the ages. Upon the death of this immensely likable leading man on both the small and big screen many are probably wondering about their mortality at this point. After all, you either grew up with James Garner as a peer or spent your childhood watching him in your living rooms on the boob tube or at the local movie theater.
Although the majority of folks associate Garner with television from his first western series Maverick in the 1950′s to his landmark role as ex-con Pi Jim Rockford in the 1970′s The Rockford Files (some teens and young adults may recall his brief stint as grandfather Jim »

After a couple falls in love in movies, we fall in love with them. Take Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler, who fell in love with big hair and neon clothes in 1998′s The Wedding Singer, again in 2004′s 50 First Dates, and this in Blended. What we love about these two goofballs is that they’re best buds in real life, with a chemistry that translates on screen. They’re both married with families now, but if they dated back in the day, we would’ve been beyond happy.

Your Top Three is a series here at Movies.com where we choose a topic and you give us your top three picks. This week is the 25th anniversary of the release of When Harry Met Sally, and to commemorate the occasion, Vulture counted down the 25 best romantic comedies that have arrived in its wake. It's a pretty surprising list, including a number of fairly dramatic pictures that I wouldn't necessarily call rom-coms, like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (though they make a good effort to toss it into the Screwball subgenre), Punch-Drunk Love and The Silver Linings Playbook. The folks at Vulture also left out a number of favorites, warranting a whole other post explaining the omission of 10 titles, including Love Actually, Pretty Woman and the Before Sunrise...

Fun fact: This week’s Mistresses is officially sponsored by the letters “O,” “M,” “F” and “G.” But don’t get it twisted: The letters in question should not be locked exclusively in the standard “Oh Em Eff Gee” formation.
“O,” for instance, also pertains to the “Big O” achieved by Karen and Jacob as they go from office mates to just plain mates (affectionately known as “popping open a tube of Pillsbury Croissant Rolls”).

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.

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!

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.
