Lee Evans has revealed that he has no plans to return to Hollywood, describing his experience of working in movies in the '90s as "terrible" and "lonely".
In an interview with Phill Jupitus on the behalf of Digital Spy, Evans spoke candidly about his time in the Us, when he starred in movies such as The Fifth Element, MouseHunt and There's Something About Mary.
"It was terrible," said Evans. "It was really lonely. I lived there for two years.
"I learnt a lot - I would never trade that for anything - but on a personal level, I really missed my wife and daughter.
"If I ever went back. I'd have to go in and get straight out."
Evans was coy when asked whether it was true that he turned down a movie offer from Martin Scorsese, revealing that he did speak with the iconic director at a three-hour meeting in a London hotel. »
Peter and Bobby Farrelly are responsible for more than a few film favorites: There's Something About Mary, Dumb & Dumber and Me, Myself & Irene, to name a few. The filmmakers talked to Entertainment Weekly about their work - including the upcoming Dumb & Dumber To - in the latest episode of the magazine's Lightbulb series. The brothers all agree that many classic lines from the original film were overlooked when it first opened, and a fan favorite, "So you're telling me there's a chance," was almost cut by the studio "... because it got no laughs - none," Peter says. "The little lines that people remember, »

One of the standout sketches on Saturday Night Live this week — and there were many — was an ode to the tsunami of compliments that await most of us upon going home for Thanksgiving. For the host, Cameron Diaz, however, all the positive notices she receives from returning to the show owe nothing to familial goodwill and everything to the fact that she crushed it.Cameron Diaz has been hosting SNL since There's Something About Mary came out a distressing 16 years ago. (R.I.P. my youth.) In addition to appearing on the show a number of times since, she has spent the intervening years acting as the gamest goofball in comedies like The Sweetest Thing and last summer's Sex Tape. This kind of thing is old hat to her. When Diaz is involved with a funny project, she presents herself as essentially the living embodiment of Gillian Flynn's "Cool »

In 1994, the Farrelly brothers Peter and Bobby came out of nowhere with Dumb and Dumber. Over the next 20 years, they made a name for themselves as champions of lowbrow comedy with movies like Kingpin, There's Something About Mary, and Hall Pass. Now the brothers are going back to the well with Dumb and Dumber To. Vulture spoke with older brother Peter about the movie, making PG-13 movies, the possibility of a Kingpin sequel, and if he and his brother consider themselves auteurs.Why make this sequel now?The stars aligned. We didn’t want to do a sequel right after the first one because we didn’t want to become just the Dumb and Dumber guys, but about five years after the first one came out, we started thinking. It was around the time that they said, "Hey, let’s do a sequel for Something About Mary." We thought, Meh, »

A familiar face and a familiar voice are joining Community. Paget Brewster and Keith David have signed on to the community college comedy, EW has confirmed. The two are expected to appear in all of season 6, which will debut on Yahoo! Screen early next year. Brewster—whose TV credits include Criminal Minds and Friends, and who popped up on Key & Peele last week—has appeared on Community before, guest-starring as a member of the It staff in last season's episode "Analysis of Cork-Based Networking." Instead of reprising her role, though, she will play a consultant named Francesca "Frankie" Dart who »

Though Brett Favre's film career begins and ends with his cameo in There's Something About Mary, he almost never even had that role. The film's directors, the Farrelly Brothers, appeared on the Rich Eisen Show earlier this week to discuss Favre's cameo, and how they actually approached two other football players before landing on the quarterback. Their first choice? New England Patriot Drew Bledsoe, but, as Peter Farrelly told Eisen, there was a small issue that prevented his appearance. "He was a single guy, went out with his pals, they went to a club, he dove into a mosh »

"Men always say that as the defining compliment, don’t they? She’s a cool girl. Being the Cool Girl means I am a hot, brilliant, funny woman who adores football, poker, dirty jokes, and burping, who plays video games, drinks cheap beer, loves threesomes and anal sex, and jams hot dogs and hamburgers into her mouth like she’s hosting the world’s biggest culinary gang bang while somehow maintaining a size 2, because Cool Girls are above all hot. Hot and understanding. Cool Girls never get angry; they only smile in a chagrined, loving manner and let their men do whatever they want. »

It's getting close to awards season, but it's safe to say that one film won't be worry about that much, and that's Dumb & Dumber To. It's been 20 years since we've seen Harry (Jeff Daniels) and Lloyd (Jim Carrey) on the big screen, and this time they have another big road trip in store, as we've seen in the first trailer for the film. Now a TV spot has arrived, and while it's pretty much a condensed version of the trailer (with added laser light effects in one odd scene), we do get one more amusing joke showing how efficiently Harry and Lloyd take advantage of the public transportation system. Will we like this a lot? Maybe. Watch! Here's the first TV spot for Peter & Bobby Farrelly's Dumb & Dumber To from Universal: Dumb & Dumber To is directed by Peter & Bobby Farrelly (Dumb & Dumber, There's Something About Mary) and written by »

Since her 1994 film debut in The Mask, birthday girl Cameron Diaz has taken Hollywood by storm with her stunning good looks, infectious laugh and uninhibited nature. Not to mention her talent, which she's not only proven with her flair for comedy, but also her versatility in dramatic films as well The bombshell turns 42 today, and has had a variety of unforgettable moments on film, including that classic scene with Ben Stiller in There's Something About Mary, where she tried to slick down her mane with an interesting hair gel. Her most recent film, Sex Tape, hit theaters earlier this summer. In the comedy, Diaz plays a married woman who tries to spice up her sex life with her hubby (Jason Segel) by »
"Sex is not erotic if it's sterilized," says 28-year-old actress Carla Juri. "I get extremely bored when films are all tidy." Nothing is sterilized or tidy in Wetlands, the year's most sexually (and scatologically) explicit film. Based on Charlotte Roche's 2008 novel, it stars the Swiss-born Juri as Helen, an 18-year-old with an overclocked sex drive, raging hemorrhoids and a mischievous taste for bodily fluids. She steps into a fetid Trainspotting-style bathroom and wipes the nasty seat clean with her bare crotch; later she masturbates with a cornucopia of produce »
Hot on the heels of the action thriller Lucy, the marketing folks at Universal have decided to use the poster campaign from the Luc Besson film starring Scarlett Johansson to create a couple of parody character posters for Dumb & Dumber To. Both Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels revealed their own posters on Twitter with the amusing tagline, "The average person uses 10% of their brain capacity. Imagine what he could do with 1%." These are reminiscent of the clever posters and trailers that Disney rounded up for both The Muppets and Muppets Most Wanted. Hopefully that cleverness continues leading up to the release. Here are the two new posters for Dumb & Dumber To from Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels: Watch the first trailer for Dumb & Dumber To with Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels right here. Dumb & Dumber To is directed by Peter & Bobby Farrelly (Dumb & Dumber, There's Something About Mary) and »

Comic actor Danny Murphy has died at the age of 58.
The star - who became a quadriplegic following a diving accident in his youth - had cameos in multiple Farrelly brothers movies including Me, Myself & Irene, There's Something About Mary and Shallow Hal.

He was a well-known activist for disabled actors, and had recently moved to Florida to pursue other projects.
Murphy also set up his own theatre company, Blue Zone Productions, to help performers with disabilities find roles in Hollywood and on stage.

Your Top Three is a series here at Movies.com where we choose a topic and you give us your top three picks. This month marks the 20th anniversary of Cameron Diaz' movie career. She made her debut opposite Jim Carrey in The Mask, released July 29, 1994. Since then she has had a very interesting run in Hollywood, and yet she tends to get little respect because she's a blonde bombshell with maybe more bad rom-coms on her resume than revered classics. But she's got a Marilyn Monroe thing going on where she's definitely smarter and more talented than she comes across through the characters she plays. Diaz may still be best known for There's Something About Mary and that iconic "hair gel" moment. This weekend she's back in another comedy...

A glob of stray semen is slathered on as impromptu hair gel. A high school flutist describes all the graphic details of her "one time at band camp." A slobbering frat boy climbs a ladder for a close look at disrobing co-eds — a glimpse so revelatory that he plummets backward without batting an eye. Raunch-comedy history is littered with off-color climaxes, and the genre hasn't blown its load quite yet.

From full-blown sex romps to softcore substitutes spruced up with gags, Hollywood's history of »
Maybe the reason filmmakers get so much comic mileage out of sexual embarrassment is that that's not how Hollywood usually depicts sex. Usually, movie sex is between two people with perfect bodies, glossily lit, who share a discreet and private moment and find equal and simultaneous rapture together. So when we get a movie like this week's "Sex Tape," one that presents the act in a harsher, more humiliating light, we're shocked and amused into cringing laughter.
"Sex Tape," in which a couple's raunchy home movie gets leaked to numerous friends and relatives, marks a reunion for "Bad Teacher" stars Jason Segel (who notoriously bared all for the sake of comedy in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall") and Cameron Diaz. Indeed, on a list of embarrassing sex scenes, Diaz's name comes up a lot, ever since "There's Something About Mary" made her the patron saint of bodily fluids, and so does that of Segel's mentor, »

As far as weird on-screen sexual scenarios go, Cameron Diaz has had her fair share. After all, she is the only actress in the history of the medium to have styled her hair with male ejaculate ("There's Something About Mary"), been involved in some kind of weird old timey abortion ("Gangs of New York") and, well, f*cked a car ("The Counselor"). So it's not much of a surprise that she'd be involved in a movie like "Sex Tape," a ribald comedy about a suburban couple (Jason Segel as her husband) who make a homemade porno and then promptly lose it—leading to a madcap scramble to retrieve the video, maintain their privacy, and continue a life of relative upper middle class normalcy. What is surprising, however, is how bland "Sex Tape" is. On the scale of on-screen Cameron Diaz sexual outrageousness, it's pretty tepid. "Sex Tape" starts out well enough, »
