Why Warren Beatty and Annette Bening’s Marriage Has Worked for So Long

A lot of times when you hear about celebrity marriages it’s how they don’t seem to work and go by the wayside more often than not.

Marriage is to many people a different thing that

‘Sex and the City’ 20 Years Later: How Warren Beatty Slammed the Door on Guest Role
It’s been 20 years since “Sex and the City” premiered on HBO, and several of the writers are telling some behind-the-scenes stories to commemorate the comedy that would define a generation.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, writer Jenny Bicks recounted the mortifying experience of trying to convince Warren Beatty to guest star during the show’s third season.

Remember when Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) goes to Los Angeles because there’s some Hollywood interest in turning her columns into a movie? Well, the team was in La two or three days before filming the scene, but still hadn’t landed a movie star to play himself. Don’t worry, though — this story ends up alright, alright, alright.

Han Solo Star Alden Ehrenreich on Why Getting Paid Less for Films Can Sometimes Be a Good Thing
Money isn’t everything for the star of Star Wars most expensive film ever.

Alden Ehrenreich, who plays Han Solo in the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story, recently spoke with Wealthsimple’s recurring series Money Diaries about why getting paid less on films isn’t always a bad thing.

“Over the past few years, I’ve worked with some incredible, legendary directors — Francis Ford Coppola, Woody Allen, Chan-wook Park, Warren Beatty, Ron Howard, and the Coen Brothers — and I’ve discovered something fascinating: The better the director you’re working with, the less you get paid,” he explained.

Exclusive Photo: Happy Birthday to Movie & TV Icon Joan Collins

Chicago – The ageless Joan Collins is probably best known for the prime time soap opera “Dynasty,” which ran from 1981 to 1989, but she is also a throwback to the last of the old studio system in Hollywood, when she was signed to a contract with 20th Century Fox in 1955. For her latest act, she will appear in the upcoming eighth season of FX Channel’s “American Horror Story.” Her birthday, May 23rd, is today.

Dame Joan Henrietta Collins was born in Paddington, London, and received her early performance education at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. She was 17 years old when she signed with the J. Arthur Rank Film Company in Britain, and made her debut in “Lady Godiva Rides Again” (1951). She rose quickly through the British system, eventually receiving top billing in “Our Girl Friday” (1953). Hollywood came knocking shortly thereafter, as took a role in director Howard Hawks’ “Land of

Hello everyone!

Nathaniel, eternally cat-sittingWe haven't done a Q & A in so long so let's jump right in. In order to actually do these more often I'll answer just five or six questions at once. Hopefully this will stir up more focused comment parties, too!

Par: Julianne Moore, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Annette Bening enter the thunderdome. Only one leaves. Who? - par

A: Lol! I hope you aren't being cruel and just making me sacrifice two of my all time favorites at the altar of, well, my Pfavorite. But if we're talking about cage matches in post-apocalypse desert landscapes my answer is The Bening. Moore would break down into crying jags in no time, becoming too vulnerable.

Richard Pryor's Widow Jennifer Reflects on the Comedian's Legacy: "He Had a Genius Mind"

You might not think of Richard Pryor, groundbreaking comic, hit-making actor, and blistering social critic as a romantic, but his widow begs to differ. "The first birthday we celebrated together, he had a scavenger hunt for me," recalls Jennifer Pryor, who married Richard twice and was with him when he suffered a fatal heart attack in 2005. "He had hidden gifts all over the house: a beautiful gold satin nightgown with a robe, jewelry. I'd never had someone love me like that. Richard saw me! And he expressed that in all kinds of ways." Searingly funny, Richard had been shaped by his childhood — born to a prostitute, he was raised by his tough grandmother who ran the brothel where he lived. He came of age in the 1960s performing alongside Bob Dylan, Redd Foxx, and Woody Allen. Richard and Jennifer. (Photo Credit: Getty Images) A serious drug addict who "liked chaos,

‘Solo’: Alden Ehrenreich Calls ‘Bullsh*t’ on Phil Lord and Chris Miller Exit Rumors, Confirms He Signed Up for Three Films
Alden Ehrenreich has been front and center in films directed by the Coen brothers and Warren Beatty, but he’s about to be thrown into the global spotlight with the May release of “Solo: A Star Wars Story.” The film is world premiering at Cannes next month after enduring much publicized behind-the-scenes drama. Original directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller were fired by Lucasfilm after several months of production and Ron Howard was brought in to finish the film. Ehrenreich addresses the director change in a new Esquire profile.

“From the first screen test on, we played around with it a lot. We tried a lot of different things, rethinking behind the scenes,” Ehrenreich said about Lord and Miller’s style. “That was yielding a different movie than the other factions wanted. I knew what I was doing, but in terms of what that adds up to, you’re so

Asleep at the Test Screening? ‘Rules Don’t Apply’ Investors Sue Arnon Milchan for Fraud
A group of movie investors has sued producer and financier Arnon Milchan for fraud, accusing him of negligence on Warren Beatty’s 2016 awards hopeful “Rules Don’t Apply.” Investors like the embattled Brett Ratner, multimillionaire Steve Bing and failed Weinstein Company bidder Ron Burkle say Milchan tanked Beatty’s long-gestating Howard Hughes film by refusing to fulfill most of the points in his contract. The fraud allegations come in response to a December suit from Milchan, who said the investors owed him close to $20 million following the commercial failure of the film, which earned $3.6 million at the box office on a...
