Let's be honest. If anyone were to play Meryl Streep in a biopic, Meryl would probably play herself because she's the only actress capable of taking on such an important role! But Funny or Die decided to give Christina Applegate a chance in its Lifetime Biopic Spoof, Meryl: The Lifetime Biopic. Because we'll never actually get to watch the full-length feature on the small screen, we'll just have to do with Applegate taking on some of Streep's best movies, including Adaptation, Kramer vs. Kramer, The Devil Wears Prada and Doubt. Taking on the "performance of a lifetime in the role of a lifetime on Lifetime," Applegate does her best to take on powerhouse Meryl. But it looks like critics »
Everyone knows Meryl Streep is better than them so naturally she needed a biopic, right? Well, she is getting one — but it may not be any good.
Funny or Die released a video advertising the fake Meryl Streep biopic that will play on Lifetime and starring Christina Applegate as the actress. The video shows Applegate taking on some of Streep’s most iconic roles in Kramer vs. Kramer, The Devil Wears Prada, Mamma Mia!, and Julie and Julia.
Streep is Oscar gold no matter what nowadays and the video pokes fun at how she expects to be nominated each year. Applegate does a great job of doing a poor Streep impression and the video lets you know that this is a biopic for Lifetime in the vein of Full House or Saved by the Bell rather than any prestigious Oscar bait you’d come to expect.

Christina Applegate is ready to show the world the real Meryl Streep in the Lifetime original movie, “Meryl.” At least that is the premise of the new Funny or Die video featuring Applegate. She plays the multiple-Oscar winner in the behind-the-scenes story of some of her most famous roles, like “Kramer vs. Kramer,” “The Devil Wears Prada” and “Adaptation. “We also learn the secret to Streep’s ability to cry on command. However, the narrator admits that finding salacious details of Streep’s life proved challenging. “Honestly, we kind of struggled to find dirt on Meryl,” he says. “So we made things up. »

If you've read (or seen) The Devil Wears Prada, you've probably taken a moment to ponder, What's it really like to work for Vogue's ever-elusive editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour? Well, Amy Odell, Cosmopolitan.com's editor, has a story to rival Andy Sachs': what it's like to have a job interview with the fashion doyenne—and freeze in the moment.

With the summer blockbuster season coming to an end, it’s time to get hyped for an amazing selection of fall movies. There are dozens of films on the horizon that everyone’s looking forward to; The Hateful Eight, Spectre, The Hunger Games, and a little something called Star Wars: The Force Awakens, to name just a few.
But what about the non blockbusters?
These lesser known twelve upcoming films could actually be incredible, but right now they’re being somewhat neglected with everyone so focused on Quentin Tarantino and Han Solo.
Here are 2015’s underlooked fall films you should be more excited for.
Release date: September 18 (Us) / October 9 (UK)
In 2013, the Hugh Jackman/Jake Gyllenhaal film Prisoners was one of the most underappreciated movies of the year, a well constructed thriller with truly memorable characters. Director Denis Villeneuve followed that up with the strange but intriguing Enemy, »

While others may credit The Devil Wears Prada as the best Anne Hathaway movie of all time, those of us who saw - and maybe bought the VHS copy of - The Princess Diaries beg to differ. The 2001 Disney comedy is a gem, and it also happens to be Hathaway's big-screen debut. Who wouldn't want to be Mia (Hathaway), a normal high schooler turned Princess of Genovia? She lives in an awesome house, has an incredibly cool grandma (Julie Andrews), and gets to do neat stuff like go to beach parties and royal balls. We're brushing off some of the best GIFs from the movie. Let's take a look at some of those moments that you still haven't forgotten! »
Unpaid internships are no fun, but 40 current and previous interns of "Full House" alumni Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are now suing the twins' Dualstar Entertainment Group for wage theft. How rude! (Sorry.)
According to USA Today, the class action suit alleges Dualstar should have paid interns minimum wage because they were doing similar jobs as paid employees without receiving any academic or vocational credit. However, the Olsens have now responded to the lawsuit, via a statement from Dualstar's rep Annett Wolf to USA Today:
As an initial matter, Dualstar is an organization that is committed to treating all individuals fairly and in accordance with all applicable laws. The allegations in the complaint filed against Dualstar are groundless, and Dualstar will vigorously defend itself against plaintiff's claims in court, not before the media. Dualstar is confident that once the true facts of this case are revealed, the lawsuit will be dismissed in its entirety. »

We've already been over what happens when Kate Middleton and Mean Girls collide, and we've even imagined Prince George saying Zoolander quotes. But now, it's time to see what it's like when Queen Elizabeth II quotes the devil herself. Yep, we're talking Miranda Priestly from The Devil Wears Prada. Over the years, we've grown to know and love the Queen's many funny faces as well as her sometimes-awkward interactions with Kate - but come on, when you consider the best moments from The Devil Wears Prada, it's kind of a match made in heaven. Keep reading to see the Queen in a groundbreaking new role. »
The trailer for The Intern almost feels like a bizarro The Devil Wears Prada at first - this time, Anne Hathaway comes clacking in as the high-powered CEO of a fashion website, with Robert De Niro playing her new employee (the titular intern) - but Hathaway is no Miranda Priestly. And of course, De Niro is in his 70s, so this movie already has a very different comedic premise built in, but it's not just a bunch of funny old-guy jokes (though there are those). No, leave it to Nancy Meyers to give us a workplace comedy that feels fresh and modern but is also very sweet. Not only is De Niro an interesting foil to Hathaway's character, Jules, but he also starts to become her friend. It's all pretty cute, and even better is the supporting cast, which includes two Workaholics, Andrew Rannells, and Nat Wolff. The Intern comes out Sept. »
Simon Baker may look familiar to you from his roles as handsome writer Christian Thompson in The Devil Wears Prada, handsome architect Brian Kelly in Something New, and handsome psychic Patrick Jane on The Mentalist, but beyond that, he's just really, really handsome. In honor of his 46th birthday on Thursday (and in honor of how handsome he is), we've rounded up the sexiest photos and GIFs of Simon for you to scroll though now. »
"Trainwreck," the new Amy Schumer/Judd Apatow movie, examines the plight of one snarly woman as she exits her familiar world of sexual freedom and hangovers for a detour into serious romance. Though several eye-popping cameos and supporting performances buttress the film, Schumer's performance is the acting triumph of "Trainwreck." Without her shaky conscience and burgeoning sense of fulfillment, the movie's conventional story might feel staid. Thankfully, it's anything but. Schumer's performance marks a welcome addition to cinema's long line of strident, hilarious female protagonists. We're celebrating that lineage with a list: the 20 best female-driven comedies ever. Some are old and some are new, but all are marked by a degree of cosmopolitan fun and nerviness -- and the occasional slap from Cher. 20. "How to Marry a Millionaire" We remember Lauren Bacall as a glamor girl with a damning grimace, but let's start revising that narrative to include her chops as a comic force. »

Fox now has the life rights of Jim Obergefell, the leading plaintiff in the lawsuit which, just last month, recognized the right to gay marriage for all in the Us. Obergefell had married his partner, the late John Arthur, in Maryland in 2013, only to see their home state Ohio refuse the marriage, so Obergefell sued. His lawyer, Al Gerhardstein, also sold life rights to Fox. The studio also nabbed screen rights to Obergefell and co-author/journalist Debbie Cenziper's yet-to-be-written book, under working title "21 Years to Midnight," on the proceedings. A publishing deal is expected to land this week. The film will be produced by Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen, who steered entries in the "Twilight" franchise and tearjerker "The Fault in Our Stars," and will be handled by division Fox 2000, which has produced literary adaptations such as "Life of Pi," "The Devil Wears Prada" and specialty title "The Book Thief. »

It's Meryl Streep's 66th birthday. Have you noticed that Meryl's supposed "superfans" spend a lot of time lionizing her but remaining unspecific about what makes her performances and movies so good? Let's change that. To celebrate Meryl's birthday, let's remind ourselves how we can be less basic when it comes to appreciating her work. I'm tired of people screaming "She Is Perfection!!!" and the leaving their appraisal at that. She's a significant artist we can always appreciate more. 1. Know that "A Cry in the Dark" is Meryl's most prescient film. "The dingo ate my baby." It's not a comedic line; it's a woman screaming when she learns an animal has killed her child. "A Cry in the Dark" is perhaps the most misremembered movie in Meryl's filmography, a damning portrait of frenzied trial coverage and how sensational news can ruin an innocent person's reputation. As Lindy Chamberlain, Meryl finds »

Queen Meryl Streep is turning 66 on Monday, and it's time to salute one of our personal favorite movies starring the award magnet. Nine years after The Devil Wears Prada came out, we're still as obsessed with the movie as ever. Meryl Streep is icy perfection, Anne Hathaway is her innocent foil, and Emily Blunt - well, this is the film that introduces us to Blunt's comic genius. To celebrate the ongoing fabulousness of this movie, we've put together the sassiest, best, funniest moments from the movie. (That's all.) »
We've seen Emily Blunt in many different roles since her breakout in The Devil Wears Prada, but her latest film might finally earn her some Oscar attention. She stars as an FBI agent who get in over her head in Sicario (Spanish for "hitman"), a cartel thriller from director Denis Villeneuve. Benicio Del Toro plays opposite her as the mysterious leader of the task force for which she's been recruited. Josh Brolin, Victor Garber, and Jon Bernthal all costar, along with a lot of violence and many bags of illegal narcotics. Give the trailer a watch above, and stay tuned for the Sept. 18 release date. »
Who would have guessed, when Emily Blunt first broke through as Meryl Streep’s snobby assistant in The Devil Wears Prada, that she’d go on to have a career as a badass action hero? Yet here we are with Looper and Edge of Tomorrow and now Sicario, the latter of which promises to be her darkest turn […]

Hollywood does kinda make sense now: it’s a neverending frat party of talentless rich bastards. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing
I’m “biast” (con): not a fan of the show
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
Did you know that Hollywood is really just a bunch of sex-crazed pathetic middle-aged white guys punch-drunk from ogling babes in bikinis and woozy with their own arrogance, and movies get made when they throw temper tantrums? Entourage is here to tell you that this is true, just like it told us this over and over again during eight seasons on HBO. (Disclaimer: I quit after the first season. I was soiled enough by that point.) Maybe now we’ll believe them? Lest you suspect this is parody, all you need do is look at Entourage itself, which desperately wants you to accept that “Vince Chase” is one »
