Giving us serious Legally Blonde nostalgia (remember that bunny costume?), Reese Witherspoon wished her Snapchat followers a happy holiday while donning bunny ears, courtesy of one of the app’s filters. And she’s not the only star to get in on the Easter Sunday fun.
From baskets of eggs and sweet treats to bunny ears on social media, some stars celebrated surrounded by their families, from the Burtka-Harris clan to co-parenting team Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon with their 5-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan.
Easter Sunday fell during Coachella‘s first weekend, and some stars were hunting for musical »

In the past, Scott Disick has typically come to Las Vegas for nightclub appearances. On Saturday, though, the reality-tv star headed there with two of his three kids for something a little sweeter.
Flanked by children Mason, 7, and Penelope, 4, Disick hosted the grand opening of Sugar Factory American Brasserie at the Fashion Show Mall. The little ones seemed to love the two-storey sugar haven, which is a bit of a change from their usual diet.
“They eat pretty healthy,” Disick, 33, told People of the three children he shares with Kourtney Kardashian, 37. “Honestly, for my kids, I want them to eat healthy, »

We then built the family around her with the help of two incredible casting directors, Doug Aibel and Stephanie Holbrook.

“We are nothing more than the memories we keep,” a character intones in “Rememory,” a conceptually promising but heavily contrived psychological whodunit that viewers are unlikely to store for long in their own memory banks. Starring Peter Dinklage as a guilt-ridden amateur sleuth investigating death and skulduggery behind a revolutionary new memory-extraction device, director Mark Palansky’s sophomore feature is peppered with such soundbites: “Memory is the ultimate decider of our lives,” “We only know the true value of a moment when it becomes a memory,” and so on. The final effect is akin to that of a Hallmark card inscribed by Christopher Nolan, and it’s that earnest self-importance of tone that finally makes this light sci-fi effort a bit of a trudge, despite Dinklage’s committed and empathetic performance. His “Game of Thrones” cachet, coupled with a reasonable narrative hook, may be enough to secure modest theatrical distribution for “Rememory, »

Peter Dinklage delivers a soulful lead perf that will attract fans' attention, suggesting better (though still limited) commercial prospects than Palansky's only previous feature, 2006's Penelope, which went »
