15 hottest forums posts: Best young actress is Shailene Woodley, Anna Kendrick, Emma Stone or ...?

30 October 2014 8:38 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Join the fiesty discussion going on right now in our infamous message boards where Hollywood stars, directors, execs and other honchos hide behind cyber-nicknames. Sample comments below with links to those hot threads. See more here. -Break- Who is the best film actress under 30? Tye-Grr: Shailene Woodley. Ever since her Golden Globe nominated breakout role in 'The Descendants' opposite George Clooney as his foul mouthed, rebellious teen daughter, Woodley has shown again and again that she is incapable of delivering a false emotional note. She's so good at conveying what her characters are thinking and feeling that she makes it look easy, and is probably the least "actorly" of her contemporaries. Macbeth: Anna Kendrick is a very special actress - she isn't a conventional bombshell, but she has some of the biggest talents out of any actress working today. She can sing, dance and act. She is equally apt at comedy and drama, »

Gregg Araki on 'White Bird in a Blizzard,' Suburbia and His Dream Cast

28 October 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's safe to say a suburban family is never quite how it appears.

In Gregg Araki's "White Bird in a Blizzard" (adapted from the novel of the same name), this is certainly the case. We follow the Connors, a seemingly normal husband and wife (Christopher Meloni and Eva Green), along with their teenage daughter (Shailene Woodley). When the wife suddenly disappears, the family is thrown into a tailspin and is left to pick up the pieces.

Of course things are much more complicated than that; in Araki's movie, both Meloni's and Woodley's characters have to suffer and readapt to their lives, and in suffocating suburbia there are often many complications -- and secrets.

Moviefone Canada chatted with Araki about his dream cast, suburbia and meeting Shailene Woodley.

Moviefone Canada: A lot of images and scenes have stuck with me from "White Bird in a Blizzard." There's something haunting about the film. »

White Bird In A Blizzard Review

23 October 2014 11:28 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Shailene Woodley has already conquered the Ya crowd with the double-hitter of the Divergent franchise and The Fault In Our Stars, so it’s somewhat surprising (but also thrilling) to see her expand into much darker, riskier territory with White Bird in a Blizzard.

In the ’80s-set indie drama, Mysterious Skin director Gregg Araki’s first serious offering since that 2004 stunner, the actress stars as Kat Connor, a teen whose sexual awakening arrives just as her aloof, unhinged mother Eve (Eva Green) vanishes into thin air. Fearlessly baring all, both physically in the uncommonly raw and real sex scenes, and dramatically throughout the often emotional narrative, Woodley is absolutely riveting here. It’s far and away her best work since The Descendants.

Of course, those hailing White Bird in a Blizzard as a return to great drama for the young actress would be working on a faulty assumption – the film »

Spotlight on the Stars: Shailene Woodley

22 October 2014 2:52 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to take a look at one of Hollywood’s best young women. Without question, there are few better out there than Shailene Woodley, a rising star who literally only has the sky as her sole limit. She’s impressed pretty much from the very start, moving quickly up the industry food chain from a young supporting player to a franchise lead. During that time, she’s also managed to become a bit of a lifestyle icon and a genuine person who stands out in the crowd. All those things and more make her a real A-lister and one well worth this sort of tribute today. Woodley got her start on television with various guest starring roles. Programs like Crosing Jordan, The District, Everybody Loves Raymond, Jack & Bobby, The O.C., Without a Trace, and others gave her a beginning, which of course any young actor or actress needs. »

Shailene Woodley: 'It's American to not say how you're feeling.'

21 October 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Shailene Woodley has proven one talent time and again on the silver screen: She's an expert at portraying characters who are coping with unthinkable, devastating circumstances.  "I think it's amazing, our ability to put on a mask when internally we may be feeling something else," Woodley told us. "I also think it's very American to not actually say how you're feeling, versus in other places in the other world." Woodley, who wowed us in "The Descendants," "The Fault In Our Stars," and "Divergent," is yet another complicated protagonist in Gregg Araki's new haunting drama "White Bird in a Blizzard." As a confused teen whose mother leaves the family, Woodley has to convey strength, skepticism, and a lot of vulnerability. "I think it's more interesting to be a messy human being than to be a perfect human being," she said to us. "Because none of us is perfect. We're all so messy. »

George Clooney's latest film "The Monuments Men" may have turned out to be an awards season bust (I still quite liked what he tried to do with that picture), but that doesn't mean he doesn't have a place in the season. Courtesy of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, he'll need to dust off the tux and head to the Beverly Hilton for the Golden Globes in January because he's this year's recipient of the organization's Cecil B. DeMille Award. Previous recipients of the prize, awarded for outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment" (but generally perceived as a lifetime achievement honor of sorts), include Woody Allen, Jodie Foster, Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese.
