Ben Stiller Named Unhcr Goodwill Ambassador

Unhcr, the Un Refugee Agency, has announced the appointment of actor, director, producer and philanthropist Ben Stiller as its newest global Goodwill Ambassador.

The announcement comes as Stiller concludes a trip with Unhcr to Guatemala, where he met some of the men, women and children from the North of Central America who have been forced to flee their homes because of violence. In recent years a growing number of people across El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras have fled extraordinary, unchecked violence at the hands of organized criminal groups and gangs – including murder, rape, abduction and even the forcible recruitment of children into gangs. Stiller spent time in Guatemala meeting refugees including unaccompanied children and seeing how Unhcr, with the Government and its partners, is working to support and protect them.

Commenting today on his new role as Goodwill Ambassador, Stiller said, “I am enormously honored and proud to take on

The Bachelorette Breaks a Wrist, a Face, and a Heart

The Bachelorette Breaks a Wrist, a Face, and a Heart
What a Night, y'all. That was one hell of an episode of The Bachelorette, complete with ambulance rides, serious injuries, a super awkward ex confrontation in bathrobes, a tearful exit, and all the lines necessary to write a really bad Zoolander reboot.   How is it possible that this season is already so much? It is week three! We're still referring to everyone by their nicknames! We're not ready for serious bodily injuries!  We were, however, fully ready for completely ridiculous verbal arguments between grown men, so let's get into it, shall we?  The Chicken vs. the Golden Retriever We began with our (least) favorite thing in the world: guys...

Cannes Film Review: ‘Diamantino’

The pro-European Union lobby just got the silliest, sexiest cinematic endorsement it could hope for in “Diamantino,” and that’s merely one of the surprises nested in Gabriel Abrantes and Daniel Schmidt’s deranged satire — sure to remain the freshest blast of gonzo comic energy at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Part loopily queer sci-fi thriller, part faux-naive political rallying cry, glued together with candyfloss clouds of romantic reverie, it’s a film best seen with as little forewarning as possible: To go in blind is to be carried along by its irrational tumble of events as blissfully and buoyantly as its empty-headed soccer-star protagonist. The sheer outrageous singularity of “Diamantino” is sure to make it a hot property on the festival circuit, enrapturing and alienating audiences in equal measure; adventurous distributors will want to get in on the ground floor with a potential cult object.

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban Are "Determined To Make Their Marriage Work"

Despite there being rumors that Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban are headed for divorce, a source tells Life & Style — in the magazine's new issue, on newsstands now! — that the couple, who have been married for 11 years, are still going strong. "Nicole and Keith sometimes lead separate lives, with him being on the road and her on set," the insider shares. "But they’re determined to make their marriage work. Despite going through ups and downs, they’re the best of friends and love each other very much." A rep for Nicole tells Life & Style, the couple is "very happily married," and says any reports of trouble are simply false. Like many celebrity couples, Nicole and Keith, both 50, have to spend a lot of time apart because of work. Keith is currently playing festivals and promoting the April 27 release of his new album; he’ll kick off his 60-date Graffiti U tour in June.

Even David Bowie's bad movies look good in this gorgeous look back at his acting career

  • The AV Club
Outside of his music, casual fans of cultural icon Davie Bowie likely know him from one of the following: Labyrinth’s “Magic Dance”; Fire Walk With Me’s best scene; or his brilliant cameos in both Zoolander and Extras. But Bowie’s film work is, in some circles, as lauded as his music, as the artist’s physical presence…

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban Just Attended a Five-Day Couples Counseling Retreat

No marriage is perfect — including Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban's. According to In Touch, Nicole and her husband of nearly 12 years recently had a five-day visit to Marriage Quest, a private couples counseling retreat located in Cabot, Vt. "Nicole and Keith went for an emergency stay," an insider said of the pair. "It was an extremely emotional and testing few days." The couple, who share daughters Sunday, 9, and Faith, 7, "have been fighting constantly over Nicole's incessant jealousy and need to control Keith on every level," added the insider. The trip to Vermont marked their final attempt to patch things up. "It was Keith’s idea to visit the boot camp," said the insider. The Lion actress resisted and only relented when Keith threatened to leave for good. "He gave her an ultimatum." (Photo Credit: Getty Images) But in Vermont, the pair were side by side as they hashed out their problems.

Nicole Kidman Looks Unrecognizable in Her Upcoming Film 'The Goldfinch' — See the Pics!

Hair and makeup are important to any movie, helping the actors and actresses transform into the role they're playing. But in Nicole Kidman's case, the combination of aging makeup and grayish-blonde hair (perhaps a wig?) has her completely unrecognizable in her upcoming film The Goldfinch. Check out the video above to see her amazing transformation! In the movie, Nicole portrays Mrs. Barbour, a wealthy yet kind socialite who takes in the story's 13-year-old orphaned protagonist, Theo. Directed by Jim Crowley, the film is based off of Donna Tartt's bestselling novel of the same name. Set to hit theaters in late 2019, filming for the movie only just recently started in NYC. Ansel Elgort, who is playing Theo, has also been spotted on set, as have Luke Wilson and Willa Fitzgerald, who play Larry Decker and Kitsey Barbour, respectively. Other notable cast members include Sarah Paulson, Stranger Things' Finn Wolfhard,

What's at Stake Financially in Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux's Split?

What's at Stake Financially in Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux's Split?
Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are parting ways after two and a half years of marriage and nearly seven years as a couple, leaving both actors with the eventual task of splitting up their assets.

Both stars have made a considerable amount of money both before and during their marriage, and it remains unclear if they had a prenuptial agreement in place. But as with most high-profile celebrity divorces, it is likely that their respective business managers will handle settlement negotiations.

Aniston has remained one of the highest paid actresses in the world since their marriage in 2015. She made $16.5 million during their first year together,

Canon Of Film: ‘Jurassic Park’

In this edition of Canon Of Film, we look back at Steven Spielberg‘s ‘Jurassic Park‘. For the story behind the genesis of the Canon, you can click here.

Jurassic Park (1993)

Director: Steven Spielberg

Screenplay: Michael Crichton and David Koepp based on the novel by Michael Crichton

Alright, full disclosure on this one, I really, really don’t understand why “Jurassic Park” is so highly-regarded and well-remembered. I got the appeal of it at the time, but still? We like this enough for three sequels now?

(Frustrated sigh)

Are there more Ross Gellar’s in the world than I actually think there are; I mean, I know there are paleontologists and archeologists and whatnot but, I-eh- do we really like dinosaurs this much that this is still fondly remembered and recalled as one of his best films? This wasn’t even his best film in 1993; I’ll add ‘Schindler’s List‘ to this canon eventually,

Ben Stiller to Direct Jonah Hill in Adaptation of Sundance-Winning Documentary ‘We Live in Public’ — Sundance 2018
Ondi Timoner’s 2009 Sundance Grand Jury Prize-winning documentary, “We Live in Public,” will become a feature film directed by Ben Stiller and starring Jonah Hill as Josh Harris, the dot-com millionaire who carried out a surveillance experiment with 150 residents at a Manhattan hotel amid Y2K panic.

Bold Films will finance the project, which Timoner will produce with Stiller’s Red Hour Films. Timoner announced the project during an interview at a January 20, Dell-sponsored panel, “Life After Sundance — Building a Career in Indie Filmmaking.”

Timoner also briefly discussed “Mapplethorpe,” her just-completed biopic of Robert Mapplethorpe with “The Crown” star Matt Smith in the lead. She said Sundance accepted the film for the 2018 festival, but it hit “a bump” that prevented its screening.

Stephen Chbosky Steers ‘Wonder’ to the Big Screen and Keeps Its Heart Intact

Stephen Chbosky Steers ‘Wonder’ to the Big Screen and Keeps Its Heart Intact
Stephen Chbosky isn’t afraid to tackle beloved properties. After penning the 1999 coming-of-age novel “The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” the Pittsburgh native was rumored to have directors from John Hughes to Ron Howard circling a film adaptation before he finally took it upon himself to helm the movie version in 2012.

He then accepted the daunting task of co-writing the live-action adaptation of the Disney classic “Beauty and the Beast,” which, with $1.26 billion in worldwide ticket sales, now stands as the top-grossing film of 2017. And this week sees the release of Chbosky’s latest endeavor, “Wonder,” a film adaptation of R.J. Palacio’s 2012 young-adult novel about a 10-year-old boy with extreme facial deformities who attends public school for the first time. “Room” breakout star Jacob Tremblay plays the main character, Auggie Pullman, while Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson portray the pivotal roles of his parents.
