A Los Angeles judge has dismissed Ryan Gosling's case against an alleged stalker because his legal team was unable to find the woman and serve her with a restraining order he had obtained last year. The 34-year-old star of The Notebook , who lives in the city with partner Eva Mendes, 40, and their 4-month-old daughter Esmeralda Gosling, had claimed in his original filing in November that Grace Marie Del Villar, 34, believed she was his "twin flame" and was harassing and stalking him and people close to him. She has not commented. In November, the actor was granted a temporary restraining order against her and then filed for a three-year extension. His legal team withdrew its request to make it »
The film mostly focuses on Lopez herself — a decision that robs it of the symbiosis of fear and attraction that makes an erotic thriller...
In the last two decades, the once-disreputable genre of the erotic thriller has improbably gone arthouse, resulting in critically lauded but largely unseen indies like last year’s “Under the Skin” and “Stranger by the Lake.” A throwback to such racy but scolding Adrian Lyne movies as “Unfaithful” and “Indecent Proposal,” “The Boy Next Door” returns the mainstream erotic thriller to the multiplex, but its thin T-shirts and thinner characterizations fail to make a convincing case for the genre’s resurrection. »

Look, we know what you’re thinking. Regina George is life ruiner. She ruins people’s lives. In the words of the scorned and rightfully pissed-off Janis Ian, “Regina George is not sweet. She’s a scum-sucking road whore.” We’re completely aware that she is the villain of the 2004 classic, infinitely re-quotable comedy Mean Girls, but as Damian so profoundly put it, “She’s fabulous, but she’s evil.” Rachel McAdams‘ Regina George definitely isn’t the most likable character to ever hit the big screen, but she’s the best part of a movie that’s filled with so many memorable characters. No, really.
Here are our 10 reasons why we pick Regina George, in all of her fabulously evil glory, as the best thing about Mean Girls.
She’s played by Rachel McAdams

It’s not just the fact that Regina George is played flawlessly by the beautiful and talented McAdams, »
This week we learned that Matthew McConaughey‘s Dazed and Confused audition video is almost better than the movie, and definitely better than sex. But in a treasure trove of before-they-were-stars Internet finds, pre-fame Rachel McAdams reading what would become an iconic scene from The Notebook remains the most epic. Revisit the gut-wrenching scene between Allie (McAdams) and Noah (Ryan Gosling, off-camera) and try not to tear up. (Even if you seen this before, it’s worthy of repeat viewing.) And to think, the two beautiful leads couldn’t stand each other!
