"This has been a project so near and dear to my heart and I was truly looking forward to helping tell this story," the 70-year-old actress told Et in a statement via her rep. "Unfortunately, I will be unable to leave Los Angeles during the scheduled filming as I am dealing with a serious family issue that prevents me from going on location for the April filming."

In the Room | 2015 Tiff Review

If These Walls Could Catcall: Khoo’s Sex Omnibus Fails to Tantalize

Singaporean auteur Eric Khoo returns with his latest feature, In the Room, a decades spanning, multi-character chamber piece revolving around the inhabitants of a single hotel room and the private moments of love and intimacy that transpire there. Less titillating than the sum of its parts, documenting various acts across a range of orientations with a sort of unhurried inevitability, only the aural cues of creaky bed springs manage to wrench any tactile examination of humankind’s basic physical co-mingling.

Conservative, even rather rigid in its visual purveyance of sexual practices and traditional interactions, in Khoo’s preferred universe of multiple storylines, perhaps this time around he casts too many stories into the pool (unlike his celebrated 2005 title Be With Me, which consists of three separate stories), since despite the use of a unifying thread, the film’s

Rihanna unwittingly helps apprehend animal poachers in Thailand, Cory Monteith’s mother defends her son’s tribute, Finland to reconsider marriage equality

Cory Monteith’s mom Ann McGregor says that her son was worthy of the special Emmy tribute. Ann tells TMZ she believes you cannot judge worthiness by a person’s age because her son was on a path of greatness — not only with his acting and singing abilities … but with the charitable work he did. Ann tells us, ‘If he had lived 30 more years he would have accomplished much more.’”

Rihanna posted a picture of herself posing with an adorable slow loris while in Thailand, which is a protected species. While she probably didn’t intend to, she helped authorities apprehend the men who were charging tourists to pose with the animals, getting the animals back under protection.

PBS's Historical "Secrets" Aren't Always Very Exciting

That old phrase "If these walls could talk" is actually pretty terrifying if you really think about it (especially if they can see and hear and don't just blather on about what they've done today), but the intended idea that some houses and estates have seen a lot of history is a valid one, especially in Europe. ("...where the history comes from" - Eddie Izzard) This explains the rationale behind PBS's "Secrets of..." series which tours historically famous abodes with one of its famous, living residents giving us the rundown on the location's storied past. Two recent releases in that series include Henry VIII's Palace and Althorp (home of the Spencers, the family of Princess Diana), and while the factoids prove interesting and the hosts charming, the series requires a strong interest in the two homes, because otherwise the presentations are quite dry.

Stone And Vergara To Get Hot And Heavy As Bisexual Lovers
Sharon Stone and sexy Colombian actress Sofia Vergara are set to heat up the big screen as bisexual lovers in a new comedy.

The Oscar winner will play a dermatologist who enjoys a threesome with Modern Family beauty Vergara and John Turturro's escort character in Fading Gigolo.

A source tells Life & Style magazine, "Sharon thinks it's going to be a lot of fun playing the lover of one of the hottest actresses out there. The scenes will be steamy!"

Legendary filmmaker Woody Allen has been cast as The Big Lebowski actor's pimp.

The movie will begin shooting in New York in April with Turturro also serving as director.

Stone is no stranger to lesbian love scenes - she romanced a woman in 1992 thriller Basic Instinct and played comedienne Ellen DeGeneres' lover in 1996 TV movie If These Walls Could Talk.

"American Horror Story" Recap: It's All Fun and Games Until... Holy Crap That's Just Wroooong

When Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk's American Horror Story premiered on FX two weeks ago, many of us wondered if the experiment in graphic and twisted terror could sustain itself after the frenetic and boundary-pushing first episode. And while the show has gradually eased off of some of the tricks and gimmicks it threw our way right out of the gate, I'm very pleased to say that three episodes in it is still every bit as creepy, weird, and alive. More alive than most of its characters, in fact - but we'll get to that in a minute.

Seriously - wow. This episode grounded the show like a fresh cement foundation under a gazebo, didn't it? We had the resolution of a few storylines, the beginnings of a few new ones, and the entwining of several seemingly disparate threads. But more than anything, it had an emotional depth that

"American Horror Story" 1.02 Recap: "Is Everybody Crazy?"

That's right, folks - I hope you haven't taken your daily potassium supplement yet because American Horror Story is back with more Bananas. In the second episode of FX's aggressively kooky horror show the action was a bit more focused (instead of 10 storylines we only had about 7) but it was no less intense than the Certified Batsh*t premiere. Plus, this week they added a new ingredient to the mix: Axe murder!

Yes, Ep 2 decided to do a little redecorating by splashing buckets of blood on the wainscoted walls of the Harmon House. Grab your paint chips and let's see if we can match it!

As with the premiere, we begin with a flashback - this time to 1968. I'm already loving the idea that we could bounce around to any time period and see what the house was up to - the possibilities are endless, really. It's like If These Walls Could Talk,

Is 'Five' another Emmy contender for Lifetime?

Is 'Five' another Emmy contender for Lifetime?
Lifetime's made-for-television movie "Five," airing Monday, could be an Emmy contender next year. The film about five women battling breast cancer includes segments directed by Emmy nominees Patty Jenkins ("The Killing"), Demi Moore (producer of "If These Walls Could Talk") and previous acting champ Jennifer Aniston ("Friends"). John Griffiths of Us Weekly called the flick "mostly maudlin," but applauded Aniston for eliciting, "a glowing turn from Patricia Clarkson as a feisty survivor-type." Clarkson is already a two-time Emmy winner for guest appearances on "Six Feet Under" and she could compete for "Five." In 2003, she earned a supporting Oscar nod as a cancer patient in "Pieces of April." Other stars of "Five" include Emmy nominees Jeanne Tripplehorn ("Grey Gardens"), Bob Newhart ("Newhart"), Jeffrey Tambor ("Arrested Develo...
