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. But the blonde beauty’s face caused quite the internet stir when she stepped out to the 2014 Elle Women in Hollywood Awards on Oct. 20. Without a wrinkle in sight, Zellweger strutted her stuff down the red carpet in a Carolina Herrera dress, Christian Louboutin heels, and an almost unrecognizable fresh face.

Renee Zellweger knows everyone is talking about her face -- and she thinks all the attention is nothing short of "silly."The actress was trending all day on Twitter after she showed up to the Elle Women In Hollywood event on Tuesday night looking a little different. While many claimed plastic surgery, others noticed a difference in her hair and eyebrows.So, what's going on here? 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’s noticeably different appearance at the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards on Monday led the headlines on Tuesday, leading Zellweger to offer a response to all the speculation.
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! »

She said she would be devoting all her time to fighting for the legalization of marijuana in Alaska, and then kissed »

The bad news just keeps rolling in during what sports insiders are calling the “NFL's worst week (now month) ever,” but there may be a light at the end of this troubling domestic abuse-plagued tunnel. First there was the Baltimore Ravens' Ray Rice domestic violence scandal. Then Minnesota Vikings’ Adrian Peterson and Carolina Panthers’ Greg Hardy were put on their team's exempt lists as of Wednesday, and most recently Arizona Cardinals’ Jonathan Dwyer was arrested for domestic violence. But the NFL and the teams involved “will prevail, they will learn from this,” crisis management expert and CEO Centurion Michael Bilello told TheWrap. »

Picture yourself in a New York City movie theater. It’s December 14, 2001. The film you’re watching is Vanilla Sky, a sci-fi fantasy from director Cameron Crowe and Tom Cruise, who delighted the world with Jerry Maguire a few years earlier. You are probably not enjoying yourself (it received a D- on Cinemascore) and as the film nears its twisty, trippy conclusion, your mind might be drifting towards more actionable realities, like which subway line to take home or what to eat for dinner. But then you come to the final scene, and you immediately snap to attention. You watch Cruise stand atop the tallest building in New York at dawn and willfully leap. He falls past endless office windows, braces for impact and hits the pavement. It’s hard to imagine any New Yorker watching this scene and not immediately flashing back to the events that occurred just three months prior, when »

It's been 15 years since Haley Joel Osment starred in "The Sixth Sense" -- and these days, he's looking very different.The actor started trending on Twitter on Wednesday after new photos of him from the set of Kevin Smith's upcoming film, "Yoga Hosers," dropped online.Sporting a business suit, Nazi stache and slicked back hair, the 26-year-old former child star was barely recognizable as he worked. It's unclear who he'll be playing in the film, but he was surrounded by Nazi propaganda on set.While it's a pretty shocking transformation for the young star, keep in mind this is still a set -- and he looks pretty different in real life.Osment hit the red carpet just last week at the Toronto Film Festival, where he was promoting another Smith film, and looked more like the Haley Joel we've come to know in the past couple years (right).It's »
