'Dancing with the Stars': And the celebrities are ...

4 September 2013 6:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Valerie Harper — whose terminal brain cancer is close to remission  — was named one of the 12 celebrities who will compete for the mirror ball when Dancing with the Stars returns Sept. 16 on ABC.

The former Mary Tyler Moore Show comedian, 74, announced in March that she was diagnosed with leptomeningeal carcinomatosis, a kind of cancer that attacks the membranes around the brain. But a recent Mri showed signs of hope for the actress — who was apparently quite eager to put on her dancing shoes again, Executive Producer Conrad Green tells EW.

“Her positivity is incredible. She’s very much about doing the things she wants to do, »

Jennifer Lawrence: 23 amazing moments from the 'Hunger Games' star

15 August 2013 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Prepare to feel very, very bad about your accomplishments: Jennifer Lawrence turns 23 today.

Ever since her Oscar-nominated breakthrough role in 2010's Winter's Bone, the Kentucky-born actress has gone from strength to strength professionally, winning both the coveted role of Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games and a 'Best Actress' Oscar this year for her performance in Silver Linings Playbook.

Which is all well and good. But it's Lawrence's grounded off-screen persona that has really made her beloved, as was made clear during Oscars week when she effectively became a one-woman internet meme factory.

Here, Digital Spy rounds up 23 of Lawrence's defining moments both on and off-screen.

The Red Dress

It's easy to forget that Jennifer was already an Oscar nominee before she found fame in The Hunger Games. At 20, she became the third-youngest actress ever to be nominated for the 'Best Actress' Academy Award as Winter's Bone's Ree Dolly. »

12 August 2013 7:54 AM, PDT | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

Jennifer Lawrence was interviewed by Vogue magazine, and in it she told them she knew she would be famous one day. Despite her Kentucky bluegrass beginnings, she always knew she would be a star. The Best Actress Oscar-winner for "Silver Linings Playbook" was interviewed in the September issue of Vogue magazine. Some of the gems include that she used to "lie in bed and wonder" about what would make her well-known. "It wasn't a vision. But as it's kind of happening, you have this buried understanding: Of course." She shares that she was sent to therapy too. The turning point for her was the TV series "The Bill Engvall Show" where she was cast. Then her mother realized Lawrence »

The future looks bright for Lawrence, too, with Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire, period drama Serena and a reunion with Silver Linings director David O Russell for The Ends of the Earth on the horizon.

Blu-ray Review: Horrendous ‘House at the End of the Street’ Rips Off ‘Psycho’

15 January 2013 6:22 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Mark Tonderai’s “House at the End of the Street” is not to be confused with this year’s “The House Across the Street” or either version of “Last House on the Left.” What Tonderai hopes you mistake it for is a classy Hitchcockian homage evocative of the Master’s most shocking and immortal picture, 1960’s “Psycho.”

That’s exactly what the creatively starved mainstream multiplexes need: another uninspired rehash of “Psycho.” Imagine if Marion Crane grew bored with her horndog beau Sam and became attracted to sensitive, soft-spoken Norman Bates. Imagine if Norman spent time finding faces in the bark of trees with the same odd mixture of thoughtfulness and whimsy that Ricky Fitts exuded while watching footage of a floating bag in “American Beauty.”

Blu-ray Rating: 0.5/5.0

Yes, dear readers, this is a touchy-feely variation on “Psycho,” with blonde soon-to-be-victimized Elissa falling for the blatantly unhinged nutcase next door. »
