You can tell immediately when you're watching a Woody Allen movie. Not just from the opening credits (Windsor Light Condensed on black title cards) but from the music. Woody loves the stuff - he'd rather play clarinet with his band than go to the Oscars. He loves it so much that he joins the list of directors such as Quentin Tarantino and Martin Scorsese who are known for using popular, pre-existing music in their soundtracks. The man has directed an astonishing 43 films in his career. Just seven of those have original scores.
This Friday the 13th, we are proud to bring you a new column called The Thirteen! The Thirteen will be a Top 13 list of a topic that we choose and the column will run every 13th of the month! The Thirteen is a collaborative column where we all decide on entries that fit said topic.
The topic this month: regular songs that have now taken on a haunting feel thanks to a film that used it in a unorthodox way. Now, every time we hear the song, we not only think of the film it was featured in but also get the heebie jeebies from it as well. It was inspired by Tiny Tim’s song Tiptoe Through the Tulips which was used in the film Insidious. With Insidious: Chapter 2 in theaters now, what better way to introduce this topic.
We had a lot of great songs to choose »

Speaking of Kunis, the Black Swan star is being wooed by a female college student. Kirsten Bledsoe, a senior at Hollins University, has created the below video-plea asking Kunis to be her date to her school’s cotillion. How could Mila possibly say no to a »

On Sunday night, newly minted megastar Jennifer Lawrence welcomed a brand-new inductee into the most-adored-actress-ever club: Mila Kunis, who unexpectedly veered off script in an interview with Chris Stark, a shy first-time interviewer from BBC radio. Instead of delivering rote answers to rote softballs with the obligatory strained smile of the Hollywood automaton, Kunis encouraged Stark to ditch the usual questions and discuss her favorite beer (Blue Moon), his favorite pub drink (the Lad Bomb, a shot of Jager in a double-vodka Red Bull), and their ideal afternoon together (hitting the pub after a soccer match, of course). Kunis's swagger, her playful tone, and her comic timing (insulting Stark's favorite drink, then ripping through her Oz-related sound bites so they could get back to more witty banter) caused the interview to immediately go viral. Celebrity journalists, bloggers, and Twitterati alike took a break from unpacking their most glowing adjectives over »

BBC Radio 1's Chris Stark was "petrified" to interview Mila Kunis about her new movie, Oz the Great and Powerful. So he didn't. Not really, at least. Instead, the two talked about Stark's awesomely named friends (Sir Dosser, The Convict, Chango the Beast), booze (she likes Blue Moon, he prefers Jäger shots dropped into double vodka and Red Bull) and Baywatch. Oh yeah, and he asks her out three times. But the most impressive part might be when a publicist chimes in that they really should be discussing the film and Mila rapid-fire rattles off every par-for-the-course interview answer without hesitation. Bonus: Watch an arguably even more adorable Stark analyze his »
Mila Kunis is the queen of all press junkets from here on out. And that much is clear after watching a recent interview the actress did with on-camera reporter Chris Stark for BBC Radio 1 during an Oz the Great and Powerful junket. The interview went from nervous talk to talking about Stark's local bar, a wedding invitation, and even a chicken dinner. But what makes the chat is when Kunis screams about Stark not knowing what her favorite drink is (Blue Moon) and when Kunis just repeats what she's been saying to other reporters throughout the entire junket. Michelle Williams, great. Wish I worked with her more. James Franco, love. Etc. Etc.
Check out the video of Kunis in all her glory below:
