Rebel Wilson Sues Australian Publisher Bauer Media for Defamation

12 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Rebel Wilson has filed a defamation lawsuit against Bauer Media, the Australian publisher of Women’s Weekly, Woman’s Day and Ok! magazines over a series of articles that she says portrayed her as a serial liar. The “Pitch Perfect” star, who is originally from Sydney, filed the suit against Bauer last year, accusing them of damaging her reputation by printing articles in 2015 that alleged she had used a fake name and lied about her age and upbringing in Australia. On Friday, her attorney Renee Enbom told the Melbourne Supreme Court that Wilson will give evidence that after the articles were printed, »

If You Loved 13 Reasons Why, You Need to See This Broadway Show Right Now

24 April 2017 3:25 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Have you ever felt like nobody was there? Have you ever felt forgotten in the middle of nowhere? Have you ever felt like you could disappear? Like you could fall, and no one would hear? Well, you're not alone. In a time when it seems like everyone is consumed by social media, the Broadway musical Dear Evan Hansen really hits home on what it's like to be a millennial or any person struggling to find their way. Inspired by a real-life event, lyricists Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (who won an Oscar for La La Land) set out to create an original musical alongside writer Steven Levenson (Masters of Sex) and famed stage director Michael Greif (Rent). After a run in Washington DC and off Broadway, the show made its grand opening at the Music Box Theatre in December 2016 and has been earning rave reviews from critics and celebrities alike ever since. »

'Girlboss' Creator Kay Cannon: Why Creating a Likeable Character Wasn't Important

24 April 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from the first season of Girlboss.]

Girlboss, Netflix's new comedy, is no fairytale — and its road to the screen wasn't either.  

Inspired by the New York Times best-selling book of the same name by Sophia Amoruso, Kay Cannon's (Pitch Perfect) adaption follows the ambitious and brash 23-year-old Sophia (Britt Robertson, Tomorrowland) and her rise to build an online fashion empire known as Nasty Gal. The comedy, which counts Charlize Theron among its executive producers, explores Sophia's ups and downs — from dumpster diving »

‘Girlboss’ Review: Britt Robertson Can’t Save This Frustratingly Stagnant Tale of 20-Something Malaise

21 April 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Midway through the “Girlboss” premiere, Britt Robertson’s Sophia Amoruso walks down the street, tears pouring down her face, angrily shouting into her phone. She just got fired, and it first appears as though she feels the dismissal unjust. But then, just as she’s about to tick off a third reason her boss sucks, Sophia stops herself, and says, “Why am I such an asshole?”

It’s a question that had been building throughout our introduction to Sophia and asked in a moment that feels primed for self-discovery. In the span of 15 minutes, she’s been inexplicably cruel to her father, invited herself into a free, semi-permanent residency with a stranger, and made herself unreasonably late for work. She was fired not just for being perpetually late, but also for taking a personal phone call on company time, stealing her boss’ lunch, and unapologetically eating it in front of her. »

Girlboss' Britt Robertson Explains What Exactly the Title of Her Show Means

19 April 2017 7:04 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

What exactly is a Girlboss? Besides a Netflix series created Pitch Perfect's Kay Cannon with Charlize Theron executive producing and starring Britt Robertson in a role inspired by Sophia Amoruso's best-selling book, a girlboss is "opinionated, confident, feisty," Cannon says. "I think being a girlboss means being the boss of your own life," Cannon says. The series follows Robertson as Sophia Amoruso, who began selling vintage clothes on eBay and by age 27 had built Nasty Gal into a fashion empire. "Sometimes you freak out on a stranger. It's Ok. It's easier to love each other if we can accept the fact that we're all a little f—ked up inside," Robertson says »

Pitch Perfect 3 Is Probably the Last of the Bellas "As We Know Them"

18 April 2017 11:19 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Get your tissues ready—the end of Pitch Perfect may be near. "I think that people will cry," Pitch Perfect screenwriter Kay Cannon says of the upcoming third installment of the hit Universal Pictures franchise. "I think it's the end of the Bellas as we know them. If there's a Pitch Perfect 4, it will be a new crop." Cannon didn't say if a fourth film is in the works, but said, "I think they just know. I had the feeling when I visited set, it was like they were full of tears and like, 'How much longer can we be singing a cappella?'" Pitch Perfect 3 wrapped earlier this month. Rebel Wilson posted a video on Instagram of her and her co-stars with the »

Girlboss Review: Britt Robertson Shines in Netflix Series

14 April 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Movies may not have found the strength of women in motion pictures yet, but television has realized their full potential.

Everywhere you look lately, there is another television show proving talented women can easily carry a series on their firm shoulders, and Girlboss is no different.

Girlboss is a series loosely (don't lose the word loosely) inspired by a book about a woman, written by a woman, starring women, and at least half produced and directed by women. And it's awesome.

I haven't read the book on which it's based, but as the opening credits will tell you, it's a very loose adaptation of New York Times best-selling book #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso, founder of the fashion brand Nasty Gal. In fact, it's more of an inspiration than an adaptation.

The series itself was created by Kay Cannon (Pitch Perfect 1& 2, 30 Rock), who also serves as showrunner and wrote 9 of the 13 episodes. »

Girlboss Is a Fun, Flashy Ode to Any Woman Who's Ever "Dared to Suck" at Life

12 April 2017 10:35 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

When we meet Girlboss's Sophia - a 23-year-old wild child barely, albeit tirelessly, scraping by in San Francisco in 2003 - she's pushing her stalled, rusted, junk bucket of a car up one of the city's infamously steep streets. Sophia, played by the charmingly caustic Britt Robertson, looks barely big enough to push a shopping cart of vintage clothes around a thrift store, let alone a vehicle. Still, she handles her "sh*tburger" of a situation with the same ferocity she approaches every hurdle in her life, which includes getting fired from her boring job at a shoe store, storming out of a tense dinner with her dad, and foraging for day-old bagels in a dumpster. While watching the new Netflix show you might find yourself worrying that Sophia, with all of her tantrum-throwing and middle finger-giving, is in constant danger of burning out. She's a woman on the edge, »

It’s Time to Get Naked With Your Co-Workers

Welcome to this week in home video! Click the title to buy a Blu-ray/DVD from Amazon and help support Fsr in the process!

Pick of the WeekToni Erdmann

What is it? A professional woman and her oddball father dance around their complicated relationship, both in and out of costumes.

Why buy it? Family dysfunction is a longtime staple in cinema, but no film this year captured it with such humor, warmth, and wisdom as Maren Ade’s third feature. Even at 162 minutes our time with Ines and her oddball father feels far too short as their journey of discovery becomes one we don’t want to see end. There’s an honesty here — yes, even with subtitles — about the way we see ourselves through our loved ones »

Anna Kendrick – From Table 19 To The Top Table

7 April 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Dave Roper

Anna Kendrick has packed plenty into her 10-year Hollywood career, going from supporting actress to leading lady in an impressively short time. She arguably hit her (to date) high point rather too soon – her excellent supporting work in the matchless Up in the Air garnering her richly deserved Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination – but it would be a huge simplification and over-statement to claim it has been downhill ever since.

The imperious Up In The Air was by no means Kendrick’s first role but it is the very definition of a break-out role, marking her out as a talent to watch. She demonstrated versatility, strength, vulnerability, intelligence, nuance and comedy chops, holding her own opposite Clooney despite her relatively tender years. Either side of Up In The Air, Kendrick popped up throughout the Twilight saga, was relatively unremarkable in films like 50/50 and What To Expect When »

Newswire: Adam Devine will host the rebranded MTV Movie & TV Awards

6 April 2017 9:15 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

MTV has named a host to boldly take its awards show into a new era which honors content (and we presume kisses) on screens both big and small. The network has announced that Adam Devine will emcee the MTV Movie & TV Awards. Devine’s selection makes sense given that he’s had some success in both the TV and film arenas with the likes of Workaholics and the Pitch Perfect franchise.

“I’m so excited to host the MTV Movie & TV Awards,” Devine said, per MTV News. “I have dreamed about it since I was a teenager. It was usually a dry dream, but I would be remiss if I didn’t admit that sometimes it was wet.” So, indeed, that is the kind of humor you can be prepared to hear come May 7.

MTV Movie & TV Awards Nominations Full List: ‘Get Out’ Tops Nominees; Show Goes Gender-Blind for Acting

6 April 2017 9:02 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The first-ever MTV Movie & TV Awards is already setting itself apart from the other awards ceremonies with two bold moves. The first is to go gender-blind when it comes to the acting categories; men and women won’t be segregated, but rather in competition with each other. That means you’ll get some very interesting matchups like “Atlanta’s” Donald Glover taking on the Khaleesi herself, Emilia Clarke from “Game of Thrones.”

Combining the gendered categories has been a debate for years, especially when it comes to performance-based achievements. The Television Critics Association doesn’t make a gendered distinction, instead lauding someone by genre such as Individual Achievement in Comedy. Of the bigger awards shows, the Grammys ditched the gendered categories a few years ago, opting for unisex titles such as Best Pop Solo Performance.
