Cameron Diaz's Hollywood Evolution Truly Is the Sweetest Thing
Cameron Diaz got her big break in Hollywood when she auditioned for 1994's The Mask at 21 years old. At the time, Cameron was working as a model, and despite having no prior acting experience, her career took off. Since then, Cameron has gone on to star in several films, including 1997's My Best Friend's Wedding, 1998's There's Something About Mary, 2002's The Sweetest Thing, and 2011's Bad Teacher. In addition to her impressive movie roles, Cameron also added author to her résumé with her two books, The Body Book and The Longevity Book. Cameron has certainly come a long way, and her evolution is a testament to that. RelatedThere's Something About Cameron Diaz: Look Back at Her Many Loves

Exclusive: Christina Applegate on Playing 'Badass' Moms and 'Married... with Children's 30th Anniversary

Exclusive: Christina Applegate on Playing 'Badass' Moms and 'Married... with Children's 30th Anniversary
In Christina Applegate's latest film, Youth in Oregon, she plays the adult daughter of a man who plans a road trip to Oregon to make use of the state's Death with Dignity Act, a decision that causes his family's past and future to unravel as everyone's own secrets begin to spill out. In real life, though, the 45-year-old actress' day-to-day sounds increasingly normal.

"Not much to report over here. Making kid breakfast, working out, now going to go pick her up and take her to ballet," Applegate rattled off on a recent Monday during a phone call with Et. "You know, the uzh. My uzh." In addition to her new movie (in select theaters and available On Demand on Feb. 3), the wide-ranging conversation also covered Bad Moms, the recent Women's March and the fact that it has been 30 years since she first donned one of Kelly Bundy's mini-dresses on Married... with Children.

Saturday Night Live Recap: Cameron Diaz Is a Back Home Baller

Saturday Night Live Recap: Cameron Diaz Is a Back Home Baller
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

Unsung Hero: The Purge: Anarchy’s Frank Grillo

  • Collider.com
Welcome to “Unsung Hero,” a new feature we’re starting up to bring attention to actors, directors and other folks behind our favorite films who might not be in the spotlight as much as they deserve. With The Purge: Anarchy in theaters now, we’re giving the inaugural installment to Frank Grillo. The guy’s been around for a while having had a run on Guiding Light back in the late 90s and appearing in movies like The Sweetest Thing and Minority Report. But even with snagging more substantial roles in films like Warrior, End of Watch and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Grillo isn’t exactly a household name just yet, so we’re going to do our part to change that. Hit the jump for more. Who He Is: Grillo grew up in upstate New York. Prior to catching the acting bug, he was more focused on sports.

Is 'Ass Backwards' The Next Great Cult Comedy?

Is 'Ass Backwards' The Next Great Cult Comedy?
In the grand tradition of Romy & Michelle's High School Reunion, The Sweetest Thing, Connie & Carla, Drop Dead Gorgeous and countless other female-fronted films that didn't get the respect they deserved upon release -- but have intensely devoted fan-followings -- comes Ass Backwards, a new movie written by and starring Happy Endings alum Casey Wilson and Ntsf:sd:suv's June Diane Raphael.

"I describe the movie as two asses on parade," Wilson recently told me at The 2013 Outfest Film Festival. "It's a female buddy comedy that's got it all: pageants, road trips, meth heads, a lesbian commune ... seriously. It's got everything."

More formally, Ass Backwards revolves around Kate and Chloe, two childhood best friends who met when they placed dead last in their hometown beauty pageant. Now, full-grown delusional NYC-dwellers, the ladies are given one last chance to win the crowns that eluded them as kids and take a roadtrip

'The To Do List' Review: 10 Things You Should Know About the Raunchy Comedy

  • Moviefone
There's a long and storied history of movies depicting young men who are desperate to lose their virginity. These movies were incredibly popular in the '80s, when mainstream Hollywood was awash in bawdy teenage tales (such classics or, um, "classics" as "Porky's" and "Losin' It"), and have shown sporadic popularity ever since ("American Pie" and its ilk being a more recent example).

But the momentous act of cherry popping is something that can be enjoyed (or painfully suffered through until it's quickly over) by both sexes. And just because the male gender is the one typically seen on a mission to lose their virginity, doesn't mean ladies have to be looked over forever.

Enter "The To Do List," the new film by writer/director Maggie Carey, that stars Aubrey Plaza, Bill Hader (Carey's real-life husband), Alia Shawkat, Andy Samberg, Clark Gregg, Connie Britton, and Johnny Simmons. In it, Plaza

Why 'There's Something About Mary' Is Still the Most Influential Comedy of the Last 15 Years

  • Moviefone
It's hard to overestimate the impact of "There's Something About Mary," which celebrates its 15th anniversary this week (it was released on July 15, 1998 -- scroll down for "There's Something About Mary: Where Are They Now?").

Even casual viewers of the film can never hear the phrase "frank and beans" the same way. The Farrelly Brothers' comedy dared to go where few comedies had gone before, and where countless others have tried to go since.

"Mary" wasn't the first gross-out comedy (though it may be one of the first to make a sight gag out of a zipper-mangled penis, or a misplaced glob of body fluid). But it was the first to work that gross-out humor into a sweet romantic comedy about believable, well-rendered characters. It was, in a perverse way, a movie for everybody, with the scatological humor targeting male audiences and the character-driven romance targeting female audiences. But

The Last Place You Look: "The Sweetest Thing"

  • MUBI
The Sweetest Thing (Roger Kumble, 2002)

The success of Bridesmaids aside, the raunchy female comedy is still a fairly rare subgenre in American filmmaking. To further muddy the waters as to what constitutes this genre, a lot of these films are written by women but directed by men—Bridesmaids fits this category, as do Dirty Love (John Asher, 2005), What's Your Number? (Mark Mylod, 2011), and the charmingly playful The Sweetest Thing (Roger Kumble, 2002). There are many things to like in Bridesmaids, but it does still lumber along with the same old Apatowesque narrative bloat that infects a lot of mainstream Us comedy. But The Sweetest Thing is breezy. It tries on different forms of genre and realism as though the entire movie were a fitting room. (There's even a scene that virtually literalizes this interpretation, if you've seen the movie.) Impromptu musical, buddy movie, romantic comedy: The Sweetest Thing is like a tour.

Cameron Diaz Playing Miss Hannigan Is The Week's Most Important News

Cameron Diaz Playing Miss Hannigan Is The Week's Most Important News
By Amelia Mularz

Cameron Diaz...that old grouch.

While we still may think of her as the hot girl who licked Jim Carrey's face in "The Mask," or the hot girl with the "hair gel" in "There's Something About Mary," or the hot girl (is this typecasting or what?) who boogied in her tighty whities in "Charlie's Angels," times they are a-changin'.

Earlier this week word spread that Diaz has been cast as Miss Hannigan in the latest incarnation of "Annie." Miss Hannigan—the boozy, disheveled, manipulative orphanage headmistress—doesn't seem like an obvious match for the midriff-baring chick who sang "The Penis Song" in "The Sweetest Thing," but this is Hollywood. There's makeup and magic, and Diaz did pull off disheveled pretty well in "Being John Malkovich," so we get it. Fine. What will be strange to see, however, is the generation who will soon grow up thinking

"In Their Skin" Will Make yours Crawl

A home invasion thriller with an awkward setup, In Their Skin stars Selma Blair and Josh Close as parents, Mary and Mark Hughes, facing tragedy with their young son at their secluded vacation home. Close, who I barely remember from The Exorcism of Emily Rose, is pretty solid as the distant and heartbroken father dealing with the death of his daughter by burying himself in work. Blair's always been a solid performer in stuff like Hellboy and The Sweetest Thing (don't judge me, that movie is hysterical), but here she's upped her game a bit, the perfect counter to Close in that she's a bit more emotional and high-strung.
