Christmas is a time for tradition – presents, decorations, carols, and mince pies. But what better tradition to celebrate than the Christmas movie? Join The Hollywood News for the Movie Advent Calendar – a film each day ’til Christmas. For the full Advent Calendar so far, click here.
There have been a few films recently that rely almost entirely on the performance of one performer. A single hander, to use theatrical parlance. Recently we had Buried and 127 Hours (both 2010). But did you know there is a Christmas movie relying 100% on a single performance? That movie is The Grinch (2000). Of course, it features a large supporting cast of fine comic actors, but let’s face it, this is a one man show.
Jim Carrey stars as the titular Grinch and is barely recognisable beneath the fantastic makeup/costume bestowed upon him, but the voice and movement reveal the Ventura within. He chews the »

It's been a few years since millions of viewers watched the now-infamous MTV screaming match that ended the relationship between best friends and "The Hills" reality stars Lauren Conrad and Heidi Pratt. And it seems that those few years were enough of a break to repair the friendship.
Heidi tells People Magazine that the night that coined "You know what you did" as an iconic phrase is in the past. "I've talked to [Lauren] a few times on the phone and we've caught up," Heidi says. "She's been really sweet. The last time we talked was like a year ago. I lost her number so I haven't been able to call her [recently]. I told her I got really caught up and I was sorry about how things happened. I told her I miss her and she told me she'd always be there for me."
Though she can't call now, Heidi wishes Conrad a "blissful" engagement, »
A few years ago, millions of viewers anxiously tuned in to catch an infamous MTV screaming match at then-Hollywood hot spot Les Deux that forever changed the relationship between best friends - and The Hills reality starlets - Lauren Conrad and Heidi Pratt. Fast-forward to the present, Heidi (née Montag), 27, says the night that made "You know what you did" a household phrase is now water under the bridge. "I've talked to [Lauren] a few times on the phone and we've caught up," Heidi told People on Friday. "She's been really sweet. The last time we talked was like a year ago. »

We weren’t so sure about this crop of five new fall series — but to our surprise, they’ve ripened quite nicely.
When they debuted, we thought we might hate them. The ditzy blondes. The malevolent horsemen. The cranked-up-to-11 scenes of Robin Williams’ improv. But as these fall TV series we doubted developed beyond their pilot episodes, they began to grow on us: We laughed at uterus jokes and rooted for telekinetically gifted teens. Here’s what changed our minds.

Is Blake Lively ready to have a baby? The sexy Us actress is married to Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds and he has said he will defer to Blake on when she gets pregnant. The 37-year-old hunk, who tied the knot with the 'Gossip Girl' beauty last year, is eager to have kids but will let his 26-year-old spouse choose when the time is right for them to become parents. He said: ''I would like to have children, but actually it's not really up to me.'' The 'R.I.P.D.' star - who was previously married to another silver screen beauty, Scarlett Johansson - also asserted that his relationships with his wife, family and friends are the most important things in his life.

The holiday season is made for spending time with loved ones and getting drunk before 5. And with booze and the occasional conservative grandparent comes the potential for rowdy holiday meals.
Since you’ll likely be surrounded by people over the next few weeks, we want you to know that a few harsh words or stray tears are A-ok. Because if you can’t say something regrettable in front of family, who can you say it in front of, right? Shhh, Grandma. We said no healthcare talk on days ending in “y,” remember?
Film and television know this potential for awkward interaction all too well, or simply that forcing food in front of characters with issues can result in great comedy. Whether you prefer to ask for the asparagus à la Kevin Spacey in American Beauty or, like Will Ferrell, really want your first cousins to know what kind of car »

Thanksgiving is just one day away, which means there are only a few hours left to plan the perfect holiday dinner. You could spend that time scouring recipes and hitting the grocery store, or you could imagine yourself being surrounded by your favorite celebrities who also happen to know a think or two about basting a bird.
In addition to being beautiful, wealthy and well-connected, these stars have a knack for slow-cooking and can snag a table at the most exclusive restaurants. In short, if you were able to pick your own celebrity Bff, these are the five you’d choose from. Don’t be jealous of their great fortune, just simply wish you’ll be able to eat in their kitchen one day.
Known to cook in Louboutins in or “really cute aprons,” Lively is that rare Hollywood type that actually gets use out of her oven. »
