Jennifer Lawrence might have been a no-show at the premiere of "Silver Linings Playbook" in NYC last night (Nov. 12), but her co-star Julia Stiles hit the red carpet at the Ziegfeld Theater, stealing the attention from all the other attendees.
Sporting a shorter hairdo, the teen favorite from the late 1990s and early 2000s -- come on, "10 Things I Hate About You," "Down To You," "Save The Last Dance" and "O" -- wowed in a black dress as she proved nothing has changed with age. The 31-year-old actress, who stars in "Silver Linings Playbook" alongside Lawrence, Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro, made sure her legs were the main attraction, something she wasn't so keen on doing over a decade ago.
On Feb. 5, 1999, Stiles, sporting her iconic golden waves, wore a tea-length blue dress at the premiere of the television movie, "The '60s," in Hollywood, Calif. She was only 18 years old. »

Mindy Kaling has been blowing up this fall like an adorable, witty neutron bomb. Anne Hathaway has already rolled around nude with Jake Gyllenhaal in Love And Other Drugs, not to mention pulled off a British accent and spectacles for One Day. All signs point to a Kaling-penned/Hathaway-starring rom-com being a runaway success…until you read the film’s plot summary. Entitled The Low Self-Esteem of Lizzie Gillespie, the movie, co-written by Kaling, “centers on a woman whose lack of self-worth has limited her choice in men to losers. When she is about to hit the bottom of the barrel, life takes an unexpected turn when she is pursued by the hottest guy ever.” Hoo boy. The sound you just heard was a million lady-nerds getting their hopes up. Way, way up.
Look, we’re the kind of people who will have a complete emotional meltdown over truly putrid rom-coms like Down to You, »

The British network Channel 4 will celebrate the 30th anniversary of its film arm, Film4, with a new iPad app that brings together the trailers, images, posters, Q&As and film info of more than 500 titles supported by the label since 1982. "Slumdog Millionaire," "Sexy Beast" and "Down To You" will share space on the app, known as Film4 at 30, with early works from directors such as Stephen Frears, Derek Jarman, Ken Loach and Peter Greenaway. Known originally as Film on Four, Film4 represented the first foray of a UK broadcaster into the development and co-financing of films. The endeavor's chief innovation, however, was perhaps allowing its movies to play in theaters before their debut television transmissions on Channel 4. Film4 at 30 is available in the iTunes store. »
