Renee Zellweger has one very famous friend in her corner! Reese Witherspoon covers the new Actress Roundtable issue of the Hollywood Reporter, where she opens up about society's unrealistic expectations of women -- especially when it comes to some of Hollywood's leading ladies. Earlier this year, the "Jerry Maguire" star hit the red carpet looking a little different at the Elle Women in Hollywood event. The actress received a ton of backlash, with many accusing her for going under the knife. While the "Bridget Jones" star handled the flak like a champ, the "Cruel Intentions" actress has her own, very strong opinions about Zellweger's scrutiny. "It’s horrible. It’s cruel and rude and disrespectful, and I can go on and on and on. It bothers me immensely," Reese told the mag, referring to Renee's critics. "I know this is so Pollyanna of me, but why — and it’s particularly »

To get to the McConaissance, we first had to trudge through some horrible movies. Some were done because Matthew McConaughey was coming up through the ranks and didn’t know any better. Others were failed attempts to set himself apart from the pack. And then there are the ones that we’ll chalk up to McConaughey being McConaughey. We can all look back now and laugh (or cringe) at these nine.9. Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation (1994)Originally released as The Return of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, then rereleased in 1997 with a new title following its lead actors’ rise to fame — McConaughey had appeared in A Time to Kill and Renée Zellweger in Jerry Maguire — this third installment in the horror franchise deserves to be forgotten. McConaughey plays Vilmer, a greasy, batshit crazy, inbred cannibal who, along with Leatherface, torments the hell out of the lone survivor (Zellweger) of a »

In The Theory of Everything, Eddie Redmayne plays Stephen Hawking, the brilliant British cosmologist stricken with Lou Gehrig’s disease, the motor-neurone disease that robbed him of his ability to speak on his own. The film follows Hawking from his academic days at Cambridge, where he met his first wife, Jane (Felicity Jones), through his history-making research that became increasing arduous as he became a prisoner of his own body. Since the film premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in September, Redmayne—best known for the role of the dashing Marius in Les Miserables—has rightfully been one of the »

Oliver Sacks has written movingly of his personal struggles with prosopagnosia, or “face blindness”— the inability to recognize human faces. It’s hard to imagine navigating day to day with this crucial component of memory missing or impaired. And yet, increasingly, a certain collective amnesia is being required of us when public faces are “refreshed,” tightened or just plain rearranged. The latest tabloid tempest over a facial update arose when Renée Zellweger, Mia from the big screen for a few years, made a red-carpet appearance looking decidedly different from the person who starred in Jerry Maguire, Cold Mountain or even

Talk about an evolution! Renee Zellweger has notably transformed through the years, from her breakout days in Jerry Maguire to Bridget Jones’s Diary and beyond.

According to Renee, she's just living a healthier lifestyle now."I'm glad folks think I look different! I'm living a different, happy, more fulfilling life, and I'm thrilled that perhaps it shows," she tells People. "My friends say that I look peaceful. I am healthy. For a long time I wasn't doing such a good job with that. I took on a schedule that is not realistically sustainable and didn't allow for taking care of myself. Rather than stopping to recalibrate, I kept running »

Renee Zellweger On Frenzy Over Changed Appearance
Zellweger took note of all the attention that was being paid to her appearance on the red carpet and finds it “silly.” Why is she providing an answer to quiet the speculation about plastic surgery? “It seems the folks who come digging around for some nefarious truth which doesn't exist won't get off my porch until I answer the door,” Zellweger told People magazine.
At the end of the day, Zellweger, 45, isn’t bothered that people think she looks different than she has in the past. "I'm glad folks think I look different! I'm living a different, happy, more fulfilling life, and I'm thrilled that perhaps it shows," she said.

By now you’ve probably seen the recent pictures of Renee Zellweger that are popping up all over the web, which showcase a far different human being than the one films like Jerry Maguire and Bridget Jones’ Diary made us fall… Continue Reading →

Social Media is going crazy today over Renee Zellweger’s altered appearance at the Elle Women in Hollywood event last night. She is virtually unrecognizable…”There is no way that’s Renee”….”Another bites the plastic surgery bullet. Sad doesn’t even look like her.” “Nope, doesn’t look like her At All!!” Those are the types of comments that filled Access Hollywood’s Instagram page.
I admit, I didn’t recognize her when I first saw the photos either. Who’s that girl? Where did that carefree actress we fell in love with in “Jerry Maguire” go? Where is “Bridget Jones?” Where is the Academy Award-winning actress ...

After seeing Cassie Scerbo’s fantastic performance in Sharknado I made it a point to track down and watch anything new movie she was in, which coupled with the ridiculous new re-titling (this film originally aired on Us television as Beasts of the Bering Sea), made Damn Sea Vampires! a must-watch. It doesn’t hurt that the film is also helmed by cinematographer Don E. FauntLeRoy – who cut his directorial teeth on two Anaconda sequels and a handful of Steven Seagal movies, including one of the star best post-2005 flicks, Renegade Justice (a personal fave).
Damn Sea Vampires! follows a family of treasure hunters: siblings Donna (Scerbo) and Joe and their father (Dobson), who spend their days dredging for gold beneath the Bering Sea. Having already lost a crew member, »

Dreamworks Animation CEO also reflected on an infamous 1991 memo, getting fired from Disney and 3D at his BFI London Film Festival keynote.
The firm behind the Shrek and How To Train Your Dragon franchises recently opened the Oriental DreamWorks facility in Shanghai, home to more than 200 artists, working on Kung Fu Panda 3 and two original films based on Chinese legends.
Delivering the BFI London Film Festival industry keynote, Katzenberg said of the original features: “These are movies that will be made in China, for China, as well as for export to the rest of the world.
“When we finally announce what these two stories are my guess is there will be a phenomenal sense of enthusiasm and pride from the public in China because these are their stories.”

Make people laugh and they won't even realize you're making them think. Over the past 50 years, women have broken through the glass ceiling time after time, shattering stereotypes and thumbing their noses at the old chestnut that "Women aren't funny." Fact: Anybody who says women aren't funny doesn't want them to be funny. We're looking back on the 50 funniest women of the past 50 years, their contributions to comedy, and their enduring legacies that inspire men and women alike. These are the 50 women who have helped (and are helping) to introduce the next class of hilarious women, which will inevitably include Amy Schumer, Lena Dunham, Mindy Kaling, Tig Notaro, Chelsea Handler, Maria Bamford, Aubrey Plaza, and Kate McKinnon. Keep in mind this list only includes women who are primarily performers in movies, television, and standup comedy. That's why you don't see legends like Nora Ephron, Anne Beatts, and Elaine May here. »

The 2014/2015 NFL season is well under way, with some teams already looking like genuine Super Bowl contenders and others looking so bad they seem to be playing a different sport entirely.
With the time difference between the UK and Us meaning that most games don't kick-off until the evening hours over here, there's plenty of time to kill on Sundays waiting for the matches to start. Digital Spy picks out nine American football-based movies to pass the time on Sundays and get in the mood for the real thing...
1. Friday Night Lights (2004)
Based on the book of the same name (the TV series came later), Friday Night Lights tells the story of a high school American football outfit struggling to be the best they can be under the extreme pressure of expectation placed on them by the small Texan community they represent.

When asked by David Letterman on CBS's “Late Show,” Bill O'Reilly wasn't shy about presenting his take on the ongoing domestic violence scandal in the NFL. He also came prepared with a very clear solution. “If I'm the commissioner of the National Football League, you have a rule,” he said. “If you're arrested for a felony, you're immediately suspended, your salary is put in escrow. If you're acquitted of the felony, you get the back pay and you're reinstated. If you're convicted, you're done forever.” Also read: Real-Life Jerry Maguire: NFL Must Respond to Domestic Abuse Fiasco, But Don't Villainize Roger Goodell As he. »

Cuba Gooding, Jr. won an Academy Award in 1997 for his role as professional football player in “Jerry Maguire,” and now he's now taking his athleticism from the field to the ice. During an intermission of a Chicago Blackhawks exhibition game on Tuesday night, Gooding, Jr. competed in a “Shoot the Puck” competition, putting on his best performance to score on goal.

Ah, Nashville. We watch you for the great music and Connie Britton‘s luminescent skin, but we continue to tune in to see how you’ll one-up yourself in terms of ridiculous plot lines. Seriously, what can you possibly add to a nighttime soap opera that’s already featured a country star in a coma, a fake miscarriage made more convincing with pig’s blood, and a murder-suicide carried out in order to prevent a sex tape from leaking? The only two possible answers here are a) a pregnancy of dubious paternity or b) the arrival of a heretofore unacknowledged evil twin.
Lucky for us, Hayden Panettiere is pregnant in real life, and her character, Juliette Barnes, had some drunk sex with evil Jeff Fordham (Oliver Hudson), the nasty record label exec who is most definitely not her boyfriend — how could she cheat on Avery (Jonathan Jackson)??? He became so likable! »
