Amanda Seyfried used to feel "extremely ugly". The "Jennifer's Body" actress struggled to accept her looks when she was a teenager and became nervous around other people. She said, "I was super-outgoing until I was around 10. I got a bit older and started getting shy. Way too shy."
"I felt so extremely ugly. When I look back, I was not ugly - I was cute and had a gap in my teeth. But I wish I could have enjoyed that part of my life and be more confident."
Although Amanda was reserved when she was in a group, the blonde beauty used to love performing tracks from her favorite musicals when she was alone at home. The star sang so loudly she terrified her pet cat, who avoided her when she was belting out show tunes.
The 25-year-old actress explained, "Sometimes I would sing around the house for two hours straight, »
Here's hoping that Hayley Williams didn't get everything she wanted for Christmas, as she still has today's birthday haul to consider. The Paramore singer is now 22 years old, and like many internationally-renowned pop stars her age, she has crammed quite a bit of life into those two decades and change.
Born and raised in Mississippi, Williams moved to her adopted hometown of Franklin, Tennessee when she was 13 years old. It was there the seeds of Paramore began, as she met recently departed bandmates Zac and Josh Farro at school. Though she initially attracted attention as a songwriter and a solo artist at age 14, she wanted to stick with a band. Thus, Paramore was born and signed to Fueled By Ramen. The buzz began slowly for Paramore, though their debut album All We Know is Falling did pick up some attention because of its carefully-crafted but still-edgy pop tunes and its sassy frontwoman. »

"Dance of the Mirlitons" gets together one cute and cozy cast with the new additions of Chloe Moretz, Jackie Earle Haley and Bailee Madison. Rising star Madison nabbed herself the lead role of the pudgy ballerina who's mother (Kristin Bell) continually pushes her to be a star which throws her into a vicious little environment where she has to prove what she's made of in her class. "Mirlitons" was written by Evan Greenberg with Daniel Dubiecki locked in to direct. This feature will be Duiecki's directorial debut, serving as producer on several films including "Jennifer's Body," "Up in the Air" and "Thank You for Smoking." They're planning to shoot "Mirlitons" sometime next year, depending on how soon they can wrangle up enough funding to get production up and running.At the moment Chloe Moretz is filming her part in Martin Scorsese's "Hugo Cabret," based off the book written by Brian Selznick. »

There's no doubt Blu-ray players will once again be a pretty hot item this year, but what of the movies available for them? If you already own the DVD of your favorite flick, is there a need to replace it with a Blu-ray? I'm here to answer all of your questions in the third annual ...
Before we get into my picks (most of which are also available in new DVD versions; see review for information), let's take a second to explain once again how I rated them. They're broken down into three categories:

The fairy tale version of Little Red Riding Hood that I remember from when I was a kid involved a naive young girl who is tricked by a wolf on the way to her grandmother's house, the moral of which warned children against talking to strangers and wandering off to unfamiliar places. In an era where Twilight is a cultural force to be reckoned with, however, the tale has apparently received a makeover that involves a beautiful young woman who is betrothed to a man she doesn't love. She ends up falling for a "brooding outsider" who also happens to be a werewolf. Somehow I get the feeling that the original message may have been lost in the translation. Red Riding Hood is directed by Catherine Hardwicke, who also helmed the first Twilight film, and the parallels between them are pretty obvious. Shiloh Fernandez even seems to be a strange »
If you're just winding down for the day after a hard day's work then what better way than to treat yourself with some glimpses at hottie star Amanda Seyfried ('Jennifer's Body', 'Mamma Mia') as a hot and sleazy hooker? Yes, fresh from the set of Andrew Niccol's ('Gattaca', 'Lord of War') new sci-fi thriller 'Now' comes some snaps of Miss Seyfried strutting herself and her legs around in her sweet mini-skirt, bra, fishnet top and sexy heels. Not out of choice I'm sure but she does play prostitute Sylvia Weis in the flick. Olivia Wilde ('Turistas'), Cillian Murphy ('28 Days Later'), Johnny Galecki ('The Big Bang Theory'), Justin Timberlake ('The Social Network'), Alex Pettyfer ('Stormbreaker'), Matthew Bomer, Vincent Kartheiser and Toby Hemingway all star. Check out the tantilising new pics below. »

The concept of zombie movies is certainly nothing new, but the undead are biting, clawing and charming their way into Hollywood in a variety of innovative new ways nowadays. These aren't your parents zombies, be they slow or fast moving, or created by virus or curse. Nope, now they're falling in love, giving Jane Austen novels new meaning and even... playing football?
That's right. The latest of these modern zombie tales to get brought to the big screen is an adaptation of Ryan Brown's supernatural thriller "Play Dead," which follows vengeful zombie football players in a football-obsessed Texas town. Variety reports that Mark Canton, producer for George Romero's "Land of the Dead," is producing the flick and "300" screenwriter Joe Schreiber will be adapting it.
Never did we think we'd see a zombie football flick, but now that the idea is out there, we have to admit it sounds like a touchdown. »

When I really think about it, there are very few women killers/bad guys/maniacs in horror. Let's name them: Margot Kidder in Sisters, Tamara in Tamara, Mandy Lane in All the Boys Love Mandy Lane, Mrs. Voorhees, That weird ghost from Darkness Falls, the puppet-lady from Dead Silence, May from May, Samara in The Ring, Marie in High Tension, Annie Wilkes in Misery, La femme from Inside, Jennifer from Jennifer's Body, Ginger in Ginger Snaps, Mother from Mother's Day...
And now I start to run out of examples. What is that, like, 13? I know I have missed a few, probably Asian, but considering there are hundreds of horror films, that's not a lot. And no, the Alien from Alien doesn't count. And I don't count sexual lesbian vampires in Hammer films, »
Every year there's a celebrity interviewer who makes a name for him/herself by being awesome during a celebrity interview. Last year it was comic Matt Zeller. Johnny Simmons and Megan Fox sat down for your average press junket to promote Jennifer's Body. Zeller wanted to talk to Simmons about the young actor's role in Hotel for Dogs instead. At that point, Fox was just in the way, so Zeller had her wear a paper bag over her head so she wouldn't be a distraction. Trust me, it's funny when you watch it. This year it's Texas FM radio host and local television personality Gordon Keith. Zach Galifianakis was in the Good Morning Texas studio to promote his new movie It's Kind of a Funny Story. Keith, who's no stranger to the awkward interview, Between Two Ferns-ed the socks off his interviewee. Galifianakis appears taken aback when Keith asks him »

Outside of her Transformers films, Megan Fox hasn't had the best of luck in her career choices. Her first film in a leading role, Jennifer's Body, failed to attract crowds and this past summer's Jonah Hex flat-out crashed and burned. Her latest project comes in the form of an ensemble comedy called Friends with Kids, written and directed by Jennifer Westfeldt. The film already has a solid cast on board with Jon Hamm, Adam Scott, Kristen Wiig, and Westfeldt herself currently signed. The romantic-comedy "revolves around a pair of thirtysomething best friends (Scott and Westfeldt) who observe the toll that having kids has taken on the couples they know and resolve to bypass that stress by having a child and then date other people." Fox will play a woman Scott begins to date. After breaking her ties to Michael Bay, it's been interesting to see where Megan Fox is taking »
Some might say that Megan Fox's career is in jeopardy after both Jennifer's Body and Jonah Hex bombed badly (and her indie drama with Mickey Rourke, Passion Play, was met with horrible reviews out of the Toronto Film Fest). So for her next film, she's decided to take the backseat and play a supporting role. Fox has signed on to star in Friends With Kids, a comedy that has Jon Hamm, Kristen Wiig, Adam Scott and Jennifer Westfeldt. In the film, which Westfeldt will also direct from a »

Her star may have diminished somewhat, but Megan Fox isn't looking for the Hollywood studios system to reboot her career. The "Transformers" star had disappointing box office returns for "Jennifer's Body" and "Jonah Hex," but she's sticking to the indie world for now. Fox already appeared in the Toronto Film Festival fantasy drama "Passion's Play," but now she's jumping on board Jennifer Westfeldt's "Friends With Kids." According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Kids" stars Adam Scott and Kristen Wiig as best friends who decide to avoid the pain their coupled friends with kids are enduring by -- wait for it -- having »

The extraction of the trapped miners in Chile produced plenty of humor to go along with the celebration in the Twitter Report feed. Meanwhile, Mark Millar's just happy they'll be able to read his new book.
Bryan Lee O'Malley was a little less joyful picking apart newly released looks at "Sonic the Hedgehog 4," though Jonathan Hickman found something to be happy about in his "Fantastic Four" sales numbers from Azerbaijan. Check out how well it's doing down below along with a Ron Marz micro-review of "Jennifer's Body."

Last year I had a bit of a minor crash course in the films of Whit Stillman as Criterion released The Last Days of Disco (my review here) and I watched Metropolitan for the first time. I was duly impressed with Stillman's scripts, though I felt Metropolitan over did it a bit becoming a bit egotistical as if it was more impressed with its own dialogue than I was, but it was still a good film. I have yet to see Barcelona.
Now Stillman is back behind the camera for the first time since Last Days of Disco, which was released back in 1998, with Damsels in Distress, a dark comedy that has already started shooting with Greta Gerwig (Greenberg) and Adam Brody ("The O.C.", Jennifer's Body).
The film is said to revolve around a group of style-obsessed college girls who take in Violet (Gerwig) and teach her their misguided ways »

Randy Moss will be leaving a few fans behind in New England now that he's been traded back to Minnesota, and that includes his self-proclaimed biggest fan "ever" Donnie Wahlberg. Wahlberg's holding it together, but his twitter account has been linked to down below if you want to give him some support.
In movie news, if you're a fan of the "Twilight" series and feel like you haven't been able to see enough of actor Alex Meraz, you should probably go see his upcoming flick "Never Back Down 2," since it required him to film his first on-screen sex scene. Get the details after the jump. There, you'll also find out who's been hearing Kenny Powers lines at parties and what Michael Caine had to say to a fan on the subject of death.

The death of Quentin Tarantino's editor Sally Menke sent shockwaves through Twitter-Wood today. Directors, writers and actors alike showed up to share memories on their accounts, including Edgar Wright, Omar Doom and Richard Kelly.
Meanwhile, in Chicago the Bears/Packers game last night resulted in a few exclamation points getting tossed around. John Cusack looked pretty calm in a picture he posted following the Bears' win, though. Check out where you hang out after a game in Chicago when you're John Cusack, as well as what happened to Ice-t's copy of "Dead Rising 2" and which film Ludacris is working on after the jump.

After topping the weekend box office, The Town played well throughout the week to maintain a commanding lead. In second place, Easy A also had a strong debut for its genre, while Devil was middling and Alpha and Omega was soft. Overall business was comparable to the same week last year, when Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs debuted to $35.4 million.The Town earned $33.1 million for the week, which compared favorably to the more star-studded The Departed's $38 million start in 2006. In another positive indicator, The Town made 28 percent of its opening week grosses in the Monday through Thursday period, compared to The Departed's 29 percent.Easy A's $22.1 million start crushed that of Jennifer's Body, which opened in the same timeframe last year. The Emma Stone comedy also saw greater initial attendance than 10 Things I Hate About You and The House Bunny, though it lagged behind John Tucker Must Die. Devil »
