There are countless tales in television and film of women who sell their love for money–and for some reason we can’t stop falling in love with them! Julia Roberts was already a rising star when she played Vivian Ward in Pretty Woman, but it’s her performance as a Hollywood hooker that made her the biggest movie star of her generation. Nicole Kidman dazzled us as the doomed Satine in the romantic and over-the-top Moulin Rouge and Rachel Brosnahan is the latest to steal our heart with her conflicted but beautiful portrayal of Rachel Posner on the hit Netflix series, House of Cards.
Like another one of our favorite fictional hookers, Klute‘s Bree Daniels, Posner gets mixed up in the deadly world of Washington politics leading to shocking twist in season 2. The moment leaves us unsure about how good or how bad her character is. »

"Never throw down with Mema when peaches are involved." — Mema
Our hit reality series Hollywood Hillbillies follows internet sensation Michael "The Angry Ginger" Kittrell, his Mema and other kin as they attempt to navigate the shark-infested waters of Los Angeles, their down-home Georgia sensibilities constantly at odds with Hollyweird culture. Kittrell may be the most rural Georgian to make the long trek to Tinsel Town in pursuit of fame, but he's certainly not the first; many of the hottest actors and actresses of yesterday and today hail from the Peach State, from the Pretty Woman to the Terminator (1000, that is). We've put together a list of the most famous actors and actresses from Georgia and now it's up to you to rate your favorites.

Tyson Beckford is known for his good looks and will also be known for calling one of the most famous and recognizable actresses by the incorrect name. Beckford was introducing a photo of Julia Roberts on the red carpet and mistakenly called the Pretty Woman actress “Jessica Roberts.” In his defense, the next photo that appeared was [&hellip

If Oscars were given out for consistent box office performance (there's already a prize for that and it's called "money") Julia Roberts would have won her Oscar in the 1990s when everything she churned out was a $100 million slam dunk and Leonardo DiCaprio would have followed suit right about now for a long run of the same incredible trick. Most of Julia's big triumphs were in the popular thriller or romantic comedy genres but Leo seems to be a special case making practically anything (save the dimly lit dim of wit J. Edgar) into a $100 million grosser whether it's a foul-mouthed 3 hour comedy, a mixed review prestigious literary adaptation, or any other genre really. He might be the only mega star who is worth his full asking price given that his marketability doesn't seem to be tied to anything but his beloved creased-brow face.

At just 23, Emma Roberts (“It's Kind of a Funny Story,” “The Art of Getting By,” “Celeste and Jesse Forever”) is about the same age her aunt Julia was when she shot to stardom with the iconic hit “Pretty Woman.” But times have changed, and in Emma’s latest rom-com — Scott Coffey’s “Adult World,” which premiered last year at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival — she plays not a hooker with a heart of gold, but a virginal Syracuse graduate. Roberts is Amy, a post-collegiate aspiring poet who lives in snowy upstate New York with her parents; what she lacks in life experience she makes up for in pluck and aspiration. Her inability to be self-sufficient will feel familiar to a lot of 20-somethings, as today’s economy has created a state of delayed adulthood; coming-of-age so rarely happens at 18 anymore. When Amy’s parents pull the financial plug on her dreams »

David Edelstein and I had a blast compiling our list of the 25 Best Romantic Comedies Since When Harry Met Sally and are thrilled that it has incited so much discussion. The 200-plus comments that it generated were heavily weighted to readers pointing out the films we left out and asking who in their right mind would have left out this incredible film!? David jumped into the fray on Wednesday to offer some thoughts about our selection process and a few movies people considered blasphemous omissions (you'll find his responses in the comments on our original list); below, I’ve chimed in with my thoughts about ten movies that readers told us should have made the cut.Pretty Woman (1990)The comment: “I came here just to complain about the exclusion of Pretty Woman. Sure, it involves a hooker, but i think it's better than quite a few of the listed movies. »

Yes, it's Valentine's Day. But I say bah humbug to V-Day. I haven't even yet fully recovered from Christmas and New Years to think about celebrating another day wrapped up in crass commercialism & consumerism (insert smiley face here). So, it's in that spirit that I post this entry, which, as the title suggests, is seeking your choices for the best inappropriate, unorthodox Valentine's day movies! Films that are contrary to what is usual, traditional or accepted, with regards to this particular holiday. So, no Love Story, nor Love And Basketball; no Love Jones, or anything else affirming love in the title. No Breakfast At Tiffany's, Sleepless In Seattle, Pretty Woman or »

Well, we’ve finally reached the summit: the 10 most definitive romantic comedies of all time. Unlike the other sections of this list, there is not a movie here that approaches “bad.” As always, some are better than others, despite the order. But one thing is for sure: if you plan to have a rom-com binge-a-thon soon, this is where you start, no questions asked. In fact, after reading this, you should go do that and report back.

What’s funnier than men dressing in drag? Depends on who you ask. It’s Billy Wilder again with a fictional story of two musicians – Joe (Tony Curtis) and Jerry (Jack Lemmon) – who witness the St. Valentine’s Day massacre in Chicago and leave town. But, since the mob has ties everywhere, they need to disguise themselves as best they can: as women in an »

After winning an audience award at Sundance, the riveting Israeli documentary “The Green Prince” is being adapted as a feature film titled “The Son of Hamas” by Sixth Sense Productions, the company announced Tuesday. Written and directed by Nadav Schirman, “The Green Prince” takes a raw and honest look at the story of Mosab Hassan Yousef, the son of Hamas co-founder Sheikh Hassan Yousef, who spent a decade as an Israeli informer and helped take down the terrorist organization that he was once groomed to inherit.

Ah, our favorite magazine tradition. Vanity Fair's 20th Annual Hollywood Issue is upon us and the dozen stars selected they've selected are very carefully placed (they've read their own reviews). Instead of an all white lineup with a person of color shoved onto the back fold, this is an extremely careful, as if everything has been weighed on a scale: 12 actors, exactly equally split between both men and women, and skin color.
Of course both of those 50/50 visual situations are grossly unreflective of the actual business of Hollywood movies but we're not here to complain but to praise, it's fun to see the cover shaken up ever so slightly. If we were here to complain we'd probably say something about the lack of Asian actors (they never get their due here in America) but no one has ever asked The Film Experience to guest art-direct a cover.

Outside of Martin Scorsese, there are very few clean slates in Hollywood – and even He has Bringing Out The Dead blotting his copybook (discuss…). The Coen brothers though, have created an unbroken conga-line of stunningly original movies, mixing and mastering genres, and even creating new ones.
If there was a bump in the road in 1994 time, it seems, has since been kind to The Hudsucker Proxy. A bigger budget (courtesy of ’80s alpha-producer Joel Silver) and an initially unresponsive family audience had it labelled as the Coen’s first flop, but watched now its pleasures are myriad and unmistakably Coenesque (including a great, late-vintage performance from Paul Newman).
The Coens announced themselves to the world in 1984 with the instant neo-noir classic, Blood Simple. Now, just mull the following subsequent film titles over in your mind like a mouthful of Chateau Petrus. Raising Arizona, Miller’s Crossing, Barton Fink, The Hudsucker Proxy, »

And I do mean ‘shocking!’ I can’t wait to see what Scott and Kira decide to do on their second date.
Halloween came early — or late, depending on how you read your calendar — on the Jan. 20 episode of Teen Wolf, serving up plenty of tricks (fireflies!) and treats (hot twins!) for the Beacon Hills High gang.
Let’s start with the Alpha Omega twins, who claim they’ve decided to re-enroll in high school in the hopes of joining Scott’s (Tyler Posey) pack for protection — though we all know they did it because they haven’t gotten laid since they left Lydia (Holland Roden) and Danny behind, and despite what you may have seen on Tumblr, they’re not quite ready to go all Flowers in the Attic on each other.
Anyway, the twins returned just in time, because one of those freaky firefly people — this one was »

Los Angeles, Jan 19: Actress Julia Roberts says the focus of her happiness has shifted with age and insists she is completely dedicated to her family and friends.
The 46-year-old has nine-year-old twins Hazel and Finn and six-year-old son Henry with husband Daniel Moder.
"Happiness takes on different forms as you get older and smarter, make more friends and get deeper into relationships," express.co.uk quoted Roberts as saying.
"I am in a fortunate pace in which I can dedicate myself to my family and friends," she added.
The "Pretty Woman" star doesn't feel that she has to struggle to live a normal life because she never tried to get help for any aspect of her personal life.
"I do not have to. »
