Jennifer Lawrence has quite a fan in none other than Julia Roberts! During an interview with MTV's Josh Horowitz, Roberts was asked what she thought about the Hunger Games star being the newest inductee in the "very elite group of America's Sweethearts." You know, technically speaking of course. The August: Osage County star replied, "She shoots flaming arrows. Is this a new cupid tactic?" Horowitz then asked, "So you obviously were not voting yes in the club and you didn't want to admit her?" But worry not, J.Law fans, Roberts sort of clarified her previous comment and said that she's a fan for the young Oscar winner. "My card is expired »
If anyone knows how to be "America's Sweetheart," it's Julia Roberts.

Now, she's weighing in on a new possible inductee to the "sweethearts" club -- Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence. See more pics of her, here. In a recent interview with MTV, Roberts, 46, was asked about Lawrence's chances as America's latest sweetheart. "But she shoots flaming [...] »
There are few actresses who seem like they could excel at anything, and Sandra Bullock is one of them. So when the Gravity star appeared on The Jonathan Ross Show and rapped part of Sugarhill Gang's "Rapper's Delight," it didn't come as much of a surprise - just another reason to love her. But Miss Congeniality is not the only star in Tinseltown to boast some serious rhyme-spitting skills. Anne Hathaway, Gwyneth Paltrow and Rebel Wilson have all proved they're no wallflower behind the mic. Which of America's Sweethearts is also America's Sickest Emcee? Watch the video above and tell us in the comments. »

The Season 8 premiere of "Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team" debuts Friday (Sept. 6) on Cmt. As we've already seen, there is some pretty heavy-duty dance squad drama coming down the pike this season. But before the tears, the training camp cuts, and the dream-squashing injuries come auditions. And along with auditions come "Texas-sized makeup kits" and, what else, but a wardrobe malfunction caught on camera.
In one deleted scene from the premiere episode, an "America's Sweethearts" wannabe has a little problem with her bra top. (Whoopsies.) Now if only Janet Jackson had handled her 2004 Super Bowl wardrobe malfunction with such grace.
In another deleted scene, we get a peek inside the -- what squad director Kelli Finglass rightfully calls -- "Texas-sized makeup kits" that keep these pom-pom-wielding beauties camera ready and (in most cases) wardrobe malfunction-free.
Wow. You think these girls are ready for their closeups? For an extended look »
It's hard to believe "Newsies" has been around since 1992. Directed by choreographer Kenny Ortega (who you can also thank for the the "High School Musical" series), the film was a major box office flop, but later gained a cult following on home video. Now, it's been turned into a Broadway musical that has earned eight Tony Award nominations, including Best Musical, winning Best Choreography and Best Original Score.
For those of you who have been waking up every day for the past 21 years with "Seize The Day" stuck in your head, this is for you. Scroll down to see where the cast of the beloved Disney movie is today.
David Moscow, "David Jacobs"
Oh hey, Duncan, from your favorite failed 1999 TV show "Zoe, Duncan, Jack & Jane." David was also in the movies "Just Married," "Honey" and "Vacancy 2: The First Cut." Fun fact: He was once engaged to Kerry Washington. »

The media storm surrounding "Orange Is the New Black" has us buzzing about all things bad.
Sure there are the obvious famous mug shots and meltdowns we could obsess over (cue LiLo and Amanda Bynes). But what about the beloved celebrities whose talent makes us forget about their criminal pasts?
Several innocent-looking stars turn out to be quite the opposite. Clean-cut actors and America's sweethearts flash traffic, drive under the influence and get into violent fistfights despite their image. Their goody-goody exteriors only elevate the shock factor once their skeletons come out of the closet.
Take a trip down memory lane to see which celebs have rap sheets.

One of America's sweethearts couldn't help but celebrate the Fourth of July in style! Actress Reese Witherspoon was spotted enjoyed the holiday with her family and close friends in Malibu. The Oscar winner soaked up the sun and enjoyed the beautiful California weather in a festive outfit. Wearing a blue-and-white polka-dot one-piece with red manicured nails, Witherspoon did not disappoint when it came to displaying American pride. With sunglasses in her hand and a beige hat on top of her blond locks, Witherspoon was also well prepared to catch some rays outside her friend's gorgeous home. While the 37-year-old New Orleans native enjoyed the sun, husband Jim Toth and baby boy Tennessee »
Reese Witherspoon sat down for her first post-arrest interview and revealed "crazy things" about the night of her, now infamous, incident -- including the fact that she told the cop she was pregnant.
The 37-year-old actress spoke with "Good Morning America" host George Stephanopoulos on Thursday. Although she was there to talk about the success of her indie flick, "Mud," the topic of conversation focused mainly on her April 19 arrest in Atlanta. Her husband, Jim Toth, was pulled over on suspicion of DUI and she was later arrested for disorderly conduct after attempting to intervene during the stop.
Witherspoon called the arrest completely unacceptable, saying she and Toth had too much to drink that night and are very "embarrassed." But Stephanopoulos wanted to broach the elephant in the room -- Witherspoon's inappropriate comments to the arresting officer.
"You've been under the spotlight your whole adult life and this doesn't sound »

Reese Witherspoon shocked the world when news of her arrest hit the Internet April 21. The actress, who is seen as one of America's sweethearts, was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct for getting into a verbal fight with a police officer following her husband Jim Toth's arrest in a DUI incident.
Witherspoon, who was under the influence of alcohol, allegedly asked the officer, "Do you know my name?" before adding, "You're about to find out who I am."
On Sunday night, she released a statement apologizing for her actions, saying, "I clearly had one drink too many and I am deeply embarrassed about the things I said. It was definitely a scary situation and I was frightened for my husband, but that is no excuse."
The mom-of-three has been a clean-cut golden girl in Hollywood, starring in films like "Sweet Home Alabama," "Legally Blonde" and "Walk the Line." Still, »

It's the end of another week—one dominated by the Oscars, Anne Hathaway fallout, Jen Aniston wedding plans, and yes, boobs. Here's what went down in the last 168 hours:
» Seth MacFarlane has been feeling the wrath of at least two famous feminists for his "Boob Song" during the Oscars. Lena Dunham was not a fan, nor was Jane Fonda who asked, "Why not list all the penises we've seen?" Oh Jane, if only Michael Fassbender's "Shame" had been a contender this year, then surely we'd all be singing "The Weiner Song."
» While we're still not exactly sure what we did or didn't see through Anne Hathaway's dress, she issued a formal apology on Wednesday for her choice of garb. That's the difference between the Oscars and the Grammys. Anne wears Prada instead of Valentino and issues a heartfelt explanation. Nicki Minaj shows up as a »

When the current theatrical reboot (a sequel and toothless TV remake had already come and gone) of Carrie was announced, there was a lot of teeth gnashing and cries of "leave the classics alone!," mostly by me. But as details began to leak out, the prospect became more intriguing. Gay director Kimberly Pierce gave us the masterpiece Boys Don't Cry, and the fabulous Julianne Moore signed up to play Carrie's psychotic fanatical mother. Chloe Moretz doesn't look anything like Stephen King's Carrie, but then neither did Sissy Spacek, so I'm willing to give her the benefit of the doubt.
Carrie was supposed to open in March, but the studio has pushed it back to October, which means they're either hoping for Halloween dollars ... or it's a sign of a troubled production.
But while we wait to rain judgment down on the new version of our favorite telekinetic teen, let's take »
