Since St. Patrick's Day is this week, it's only appropriate to highlight the most memorable drunk scenes in film - the good, the bad, and the laugh-out-loud funny. In honor of the beer-filled holiday, we're taking a look at unforgettable drunk moments from iconic movie parties, awkward hookup scenes, and more. From John Belushi chugging Jack Daniel's in Animal House to Renée Zellweger singing "All by Myself" in Bridget Jones's Diary, take a look at the best, most memorable drunk moments in movies. »
If looking good is the best revenge, Renee Zellweger is definitely sending a message to all of her critics.
The 45-year-old actress -- who made headlines in October when some speculated that she had undergone drastic plastic surgery -- stepped out at the Miu Miu Womenswear Fall/Winter 2015/2016 fashion show during Paris Fashion Week on Wednesday, sporting minimal makeup and looking much more like her old self. She also debuted her new bangs.
Photos: Two Looks, One Star
Sporting a bright cherry-red Miu Miu coat, a black lace Miu Miu dress and pointy nude Prada heels, it's clear the Bridget Jones' Diary actress felt confident during her rare public appearance.
"I'm glad folks think I look different!" she told People. "I'm living a different, happy, more fulfilling »
Looking good, Renée Zellweger! The 45-year-old star was spotted on Wednesday in the City of Light, where the Bridget Jones actress attended the Miu Miu runway show as part of Paris Fashion Week. Looking chic and pretty in a long red jacket, the blond beauty smiled as she waved at photogs, appearing relaxed and content while she showed off her bangin' new hairstyle: her fashionable fringe! Zellweger teamed her classy jacket with a lacy black dress, which she paired with pointed-toe nude pumps and black shades. She wore her hair up high in an unkempt bun, letting her new bangs frame her mug. The latest sighting of Renée comes just four months after the »
Less than five months after Renee Zellweger debuted her changing face, she returned to the red carpet with another new look! The 45-year-old actress attended the Miu Miu show during Paris Fashion Week on Wednesday, debuting a new 'do featuring bangs, a high topknot and fringe framing her face. The "Bridget Jones" beauty posed for pictures at the event in a red coat over a black lace dress, nude heels and red see-through purse. She definitely looks a lot like her old self here, doesn't she? The notoriously-private celeb was shocked when talk of her new youthful look was trending all day on social media after she showed up to the Elle Women In Hollywood event back in October. While many claimed plastic surgery, Renee set the record straight by saying she's just living a healthier lifestyle. "I'm glad folks think I look different! I'm living a different, happy, more fulfilling life, »

Fan fiction is more prevalent than you might think. With Fifty Shades of Grey being unleashed in theaters Friday, there's no denying that the novel's author, E L James, has brought fan fiction into the spotlight. Originally titled Master of the Universe, James's Twilight fan fiction based on Stephenie Meyer's multi-million dollar franchise first found its home on FanFiction.net. After the racy material within the story forced James to pull it from FanFiction.net, she next hosted Master of the Universe on her own website called 50Shades.com (which now redirects to her official author page).

Kingsman actor Colin Firth who has won an Oscar, a Golden Globe and two BAFTAs is all set to showcase a never seen before side with his much awaited action film Kingsman: Secret Service releasing on 27th February in English and Hindi!
Based upon the acclaimed comic book and directed by Matthew Vaughn (Kick Ass, X-Men First Class), Secret Service tells the story of Kingsman, a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into his agency’s ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius with the cast of Colin Firth, Sir Michael Caine and Samuel Jackson.
So what did the actor feel while executing the action scenes? “I think, of course, it’s intense and extreme, but I think you have to see the film and decide for yourself where your threshold lies. For me, it’s comic book, »

After a two-year absence from the bigscreen, Hugh Grant — who got involved in politics following the News of the World phone hacking scandal in 2011, which affected him and dozens of celebrity colleagues — is excited to make a comeback in the romantic comedy “The Rewrite.”
“It’s lovely to be back. I got involved in a big political campaign in Britain, which has devoured my life,” Grant, 54, told Variety at the film’s Cinema Society screening in New York on Tuesday night at the Landmark Sunshine Theater. “I also became a father. I keep having children. I can’t stop,” he quipped.
In “The Rewrite” — which premiered in the U.K. last October and will open in the U.S. on Friday — Grant plays an Oscar-winning Hollywood screenwriter-turned-reluctant professor at a small college, who comes to value self-worth over fame upon meeting a spirited single mom (Marisa Tomei).

The king of romantic comedies isn't actually that romantic. "I'm not really a believer in marriage," Hugh Grant told People on Saturday at the New York City premiere of his latest movie, The Rewrite, hosted by The Cinema Society and Brooks Brothers. We can hear the hearts breaking all over the world. But the Bridget Jones's Diary has a good reason for never wanting to tie the knot: "I've seen very few good examples, maybe five, in my life, but I think otherwise it's a recipe for mutual misery," he said of successful marriages. Sounds like something Daniel Cleaver would say. »

One of the primary things that has made Mark Millar, Matthew Vaughn, and Jane Goldman such a logical and fruitful collaboration is their shared love of the subversion of the overly familiar and a real knack for finding what's fun or interesting about an archetype and turning it inside out. They did it with "Kick-Ass," and now they seem to have perfected the model with "Kingsman: The Secret Service." The easy pitch for "Kingsman" would be "an R-rated version of 'Harry Potter' by way of James Bond," and that's not inaccurate. But it doesn't fully encapsulate all the ways that "Kingsman" works, and this is as aggressive a slice of mainstream entertainment as I've seen in recent memory. Fast and brash and told with a dangerous amount of cheek, this feels like a reaction to the Bond films in the same way that "Raiders Of The Lost Ark »

Is it possible to have a conversation about British culture - and its perceived idealism's in film - without mentioning James Bond? The valor, the silk-induced accent, the martini (shaken, not stirred, of course) - no matter what you draw on, one thing is certain... Mr. Bond oozes class, and has been representative of her Majesty's fine isle for as long as people took interest.
Skip forward to 2015 and things have changed. Mr. Bond - now in his eighth reincarnation - is evolving around his audience. Given the success and popularity of darker, more perturbed action heroes (such as Christopher Nolan's Batman, or Zack Snyder's Watchmen), so to has James bittered. Articulation and swagger are met in equal measure with substance abuse and insomnia, resulting in a spy that's as crazy as he is co-ordinated...and we love it!
And so, when the concept of the British spy »
You've seen Martin Starr in many things - the actor is currently on the HBO comedy Silicon Valley and got his start on beloved cult hit Freaks and Geeks - but you may have never seen him as the leading man in a romantic comedy. That's what he is in this month's Amira & Sam. As one half of the title's unlikely romantic pair, Starr plays army veteran Sam, who falls for Amira, a young Iraqi woman living in New York. I chatted with Starr about how he came to be involved with the funny and original film, his own favorite classic romantic comedy, and what's coming up on Silicon Valley season two. Source: Drafthouse Films Popsugar: Why did you decide to play the lead in a romantic comedy at this point in your career? Martin Starr: I don't know that I intended to initially, but I just fell in »
It might be a stretch to call the Bridget Jones films a beloved franchise. Certainly the first film was both a major hit of 2001, and remains an enjoyable little romcom today, but its sequel in 2004 was not quite so beloved, relying mostly on tired re-hashes of successful scenes in the earlier film. The idea of a third film has been bandied around before, especially since the release of Helen Fielding’s addition sequel Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy. But are we any closer to seeing a Bridget Jones 3, and do we really want to?
In a recent interview about his new film Kingsman: The Secret Service (via Cinema Blend), Colin Firth naturally faced questions about the possibilities of Bridget Jones 3. While he’s not committing himself to anything just yet, it does sound like Firth would be happy to be involved in another film:
