Vanessa Hudgens Debuts Long Blonde 'Do At Coachella!

15 April 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Do blondes really have more fun? Just ask Vanessa Hudgens! The "High School Musical" star showed off her newly dyed long blonde tresses at Coachella in Indio, California over the weekend. Hudgens posted a pic of her new 'do via Instagram on Monday. "Thanks to @Chevrolet for inviting me to the awesome #StingrayOasis Pool Party this weekend," she captioned the cute snap. Rocking a bright multi-colored maxi dress in the photo, the 25-year-old looked perfectly dressed for the popular indie music festival. And in another shot from the party-filled weekend, Vanessa posted a snap rocking a giant Native American inspired headpiece. While we think the actress looks great as a blonde, we prefer her with her natural hair color. What do you think of the "Spring Breakers" new 'do? Tell toofab in the comment section below and click "Launch Gallery" above to see even more celeb sightings from weekend one of Coachella! »

Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne And Lisa Kudrow Trade Headlines In Neighbors Clip

11 April 2014 10:08 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After Neighbors received overwhelmingly positive reviews (including three-and-a-half stars from our very own Matt Donato) at the South by Southwest Film Festival earlier this year, anticipation is building for the raunchy college comedy, which stars Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne as a suburban couple thrown into disarray when a rowdy fraternity moves in next door.

The flick opens in May, and Universal is turning up the heat on its marketing campaign with a new clip featuring Rogen, Byrne and co-star Lisa Kudrow, who plays school official Carol Gladstone. When Rogen and Byrne’s characters bring their concerns about the frat to her, Carol’s lack of interest sparks a very funny back-and-forth regarding potential newspaper headlines.

Check it out below:

All three are tremendously talented comedic actors, and the clip had me in stitches despite not including Zac Efron, who has perhaps received more acclaim than any other actor in the film. »

Zac Efron Always Makes the MTV Movie Awards Worth Watching

8 April 2014 12:25 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

We've been crushing on Zac Efron for a decade, and throughout that time, he's made many appearances. One of our favorites is always the MTV Movie Awards, where he's had fun with everyone from his then-girlfriend, Vanessa Hudgens, to Snoop Dogg and even managed to make a broken hand look good. Zac has also picked up two awards: in 2008 for breakthrough performance in Hairspray and in 2009 for best male performance in High School Musical 3. In honor of his best shirtless performance nomination at this Sunday's show, we've rounded up his best moments from his appearances since 2007. Though he took a three-year sabbatical from 2010 to 2013, there are still plenty of amazing memories to relive below. And if that's not enough, check out some of his best GIFs from High School Musical - hopefully he'll bust a move this weekend! View Slideshow › »

‘Neighbors’ Red Band Trailer: Maybe Zac Efron’s Future Belongs to The Darkness

8 April 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Wholesomeness does not last forever, especially the kind seemingly cooked up in a Disney or Nickelodeon lab somewhere. Plenty of child stars – squeaky clean in their tween years – have fallen from grace in some way or another. Naked pictures! Rehab! Drugs! (Maybe that last one before rehab! Maybe also after, though!) Indie movies! It’s a rough world out there, and it’s hard to stay on the straight and narrow (or the at least overly family-friendly) path for too long. Such is the case with young Zac Efron. The three-time star of the Disney Channel’s hugely popular High School Musical series (a gem of modern kiddie fare, and don’t you ever forget it) has had some, well, troubles. There’s been some drugs. Some rehab. Some getting peed on by Nicole Kidman on screen. There’s been some oat-sowing, okay? But although Efron has made some missteps and mistakes in both his personal and »

‘Captain America’s’ Chris Evans Says He’s Ready to Leave Acting Behind

25 March 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There’s no escaping Captain America — especially for the actor behind the blue mask. That’s not just a career assessment. It’s a physical reality. To gear up as the iconic Marvel superhero, Chris Evans, the star of the upcoming “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” once again dons his trademark patriotic suit, which requires the actor to wear a snug latex undergarment that keeps the uniform from clinging to his sculpted muscles.

Given the confines of the zip-from-the-back costume, Evans jokes that there’s one thing audiences won’t see Captain America do — head to the bathroom. “Not to get too graphic,” he says, “but you’d better hope you’re on a nice schedule in that thing. There are all these zippers and buttons.” And he only sheds the suit with the help of a wardrobe entourage. “You could fight all day; you’re not getting out of it. »

'Drop Dead Diva' Season 6 premiere: Stephen 'tWitch' Boss says he was 'very nervous' to guest star

23 March 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

"Drop Dead Diva" is welcoming a face familiar for "So You Think You Can Dance" fans to its Season 6 premiere. Stephen "tWitch" Boss is guest-starring as Billy Donaldson, a man who hires Jane (Brooke Elliott) to help get his brother out of prison -- at any cost to himself.

"I'm hiring her to get my brother out of jail for a crime he did not commit," Boss tells Zap2it. "I feel that he's wrongfully accused and I end up selling my business and saving every penny and dime that I have to hire a big-time lawyer."

"My brother is played by Corbin Bleu, which is awesome," Boss continues, "because I've never worked with Corbin before, but small world, my wife [Allison Holker] actually did 'High School Musical' one and two with Corbin."

Boss is perhaps best known for when he burst onto the TV dancing scene in 2007 on "So You Think You Can Dance, »

What It Feels Like to Crush on Zac Efron For a Decade

21 March 2014 2:50 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Zac Efron is known for his role as Troy Bolton in High School Musical back in 2006, but the first blip on our crush-worthy radar happened when he was just a gap-toothed 17-year-old on The WB's Summerland in 2004. Since then, crushing on Zac has evolved from watching a cute kid sing and dance to swooning over a constantly shirtless 26-year-old as he winks, smiles, and charms his way into everyone's hearts. It's been a long and winding road over the past decade (with some interesting haircuts) but there's no denying that our crush on Zac will stand the test of time. Scroll through to see the many stages in our crush evolution - including plenty of near-naked moments - and make sure to vote for him in our March Man-ness sexy movie star poll!

Tom Holland’s Twisted Tales Review

20 March 2014 2:43 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Tom Holland is a heralded horror filmmaker, having both Child’s Play and Fright Night on his résumé, but you wouldn’t know that from his FearNet web series turned anthology horror film, Tom Holland’s Twisted Tales. Stringing together nine whimpering stories of obscurity, stale plotting, poorly budgeted production, and regrettable acting from so many genre stars, I can’t express how utterly disappointing each segment becomes. Thinking of each short as some cheap webisode content for publicity purposes, getting Holland’s name out while FearNet promotes a legendary horror talent, quality lacks drive and ambition, as similar productions like Zombie Roadkill outshine Holland’s feeble attempts. Eliminating the point of owning this release, you can watch all these “twisted tales” over on FearNet – and even then I wouldn’t recommend it.

These nine tales of “terror” span numerous subgenres, from werewolves, to magic mirrors, to deals with the devil, »
