An American Horror Story: Asylum teaser clip has arrived to give you nightmares.
Comedian and Lgbt ally Chelsea Handler is all suited up on the cover of Marie Claire @Work. I'm digging her look.
U.S. Olympic goalkeeper Hope Solo accused her former Dancing With the Stars partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy of slapping her “across the face” in her memoir Solo: A Memoir of Hope. Solo said Chmerkovskiy “was extremely apologetic” but that the blow was “powerful enough that her ears rang afterwards.” This is not Ok.

We're sure Catherine Hardwicke and Evan Rachel Wood are still pals, but sometimes scheduling or a variety of other reasons keep two people from working together. Earlier this year it looked like the "Thirteen" star and director were going to reunite on "Plush," but alas, things don't seem to have worked out. But another capable star is looking to come off the bench and sub in.
Emily Browning is now looking to star in "Plush," a thriller set in Los Angeles. Co-written with Artie Nelson, the story will follow a psychic psychologist who sees the memories of his patients to help expel their past demons. But he meets his match when he crosses paths with Browning, who has the same power. O......kay. This was previously said to be an "erotic thriller" set in the music industry but unless the characters' psychic skills require everyone to be naked and singing, »

Catherine Hardwicke's career arc doesn't make much sense to me. Her directorial debut was the edgy teen drama Thirteen, followed by the likeminded skater tale Lords of Dogtown. The first major detour came in 2006 with the chaste The Nativity Story. Next she kicked off the Twilight Saga phenomenon, but instead of returning for the sequels, moved on to the panned Twilight knockoff Red Riding Hood. To get back on track, Hardwicke may return to her roots. THR reports that Hardwicke is attached to direct Plush, and her Thirteen star Evan Rachel Wood is attached to star. The script that Hardwicke co-wrote with Artie Nelson is described as an erotic thriller set in the L.A. music world. Honestly, I tune out when I hear the phrase "erotic thriller," but reuniting with Wood is a smart move if Hardwicke wishes to reconnect with the critical community.

Seems like Catherine Hardwicke ("Thirteen," "Lords of Dogtown") is trying to hone in on a grittier return behind the camera. After "Twilight" and "Red Riding Hood," the helmer was linked to an adaptation of the potentially franchise-spawning "The Maze Runner," but soon focused her attentions on troubled-teen tale "The Bitch Posse" and a biopic of Swedish boxer Bo "Bosse" Högberg starring former partners Noomi and Bo Rapace. Having described that boxing film, "Knockout," as a story that "goes back to more of my 'Thirteen' days," it looks like Hardwicke has been trying to hark back to her earlier sensibilities -- a notion which is now affirmed by the fact she's circling an erotic thriller set in the L.A. music industry titled "Plush" that has also Evan Rachel Wood attached to star. The project was co-scripted by Hardwicke and Artie »
Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke knows how to have a good time at Sundance. She attended portions of the film festival this weekend, and instead of letting the snowy situation down there in Park City, Utah get her down, she seized the opportunity to have a bit of fun with it! Check out the slideshow photos of her getting ready to snowboard. That is a fun, fun lady. Hardwicke's currently working on a movie called Knockout, which is based on a true story. Here's the description: "A look at the storied career of Swedish boxer Bosse Högberg and his romance with cabaret singer Anit »
