Mila Kunis Makes Monthly Donation to Planned Parenthood in Mike Pence's Name
Mila Kunis' husband Ashton Kutcher is known for pulling pranks on his old show Punk'd. But during a guest appearance on Conan, the Bad Moms star revealed she's pulled a few stunts of her own, including one involving Vice President Mike Pence.

"I apologize if I offend anybody."  Kunis explained she disagreed with some of Pence's policies, including his efforts to defund Planned Parenthood.  "So, as a reminder that there are women out there in the world that may or may not agree with his platform, I put him on a list of reoccurring donations that are...

Chrissy Metz Questioned if She Was on Punk'd When Oprah Winfrey Invited Her to Lunch
If Oprah Winfrey invited you to lunch, would you believe it? Well, Chrissy Metz didn't. The This Is Us star stopped by Late Night With Seth Meyers and told the host how she thought someone was pulling a prank on her when Winfrey invited her to lunch. "She called me, and I literally thought I was being Punk'd," she said, referencing Ashton Kutcher's old hidden-camera show.

Looking Back at MTV's Most Famous VJs: Where Are They Now?

Looking Back at MTV's Most Famous VJs: Where Are They Now?
With the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards coming up on Sunday and the news about Total Request Live making a comeback in October, MTV has been on our minds quite a bit lately. In fact, we got to thinking about some of the things the network has gifted us throughout all these years: Real World, Cribs, Punk'd, Daria, Jackass, the craze behind famous family reality shows thanks to The Osbournes, the dramatization of being a teen mom thanks to 16 and Pregnant, Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari thanks to Laguna Beach, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi thanks to Jersey Shore, and So. Much. More. However, one gift we may have forgotten about over the years was the massive hype that...

CHiPs (2017) review

Michael Pena co-stars in an action-comedy flick based on the 70s TV show, CHiPs. A must see? Well, no...

There are some stories that deserve to be told and retold - handed down through generation after generation, from campfire tales through to the era of TV and cinema and far beyond. Whether they're related in the pages of a book or projected on a movie screen, these stories speak to the essence of what makes us human: our histories, our friendships, our fears and desires. CHiPs, based on the 70s TV show about two motorcycle cops in California, is not one of those stories.

America, You’ve Been Punk’d

The way things are going, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if we all woke up tomorrow and Ashton Kutcher was sitting in the Oval Office, arm around Donald Trump, as they both laugh conspiratorially over the gullible Americans who believed everything they've seen since November of 2016 was real. In unison, they declare, "America, you've been punked!" Honestly, it's been hard to shake this surreal theater of the absurd that seems to be our new reality. It's not like there haven't been public gaffes and blunders in the past; one of the most beloved presidents of all time, John F. Kennedy, made a speech in Berlin on June of 1963 declaring, "I am a jelly doughnut," while reading a speech which hadn't been properly grammar checked. The thing is, these mistakes and blunders seem to be happening at an alarming rate and at a time when we're also being sold

6 Days of the Year That Will Probably Be Movies Soon

We've seen "Valentine's Day" and "New Year's Eve," and now we prepare to welcome Garry Marshall's latest rom-com "Mother's Day," which hits theaters April 29th.

Your move, Hollywood. We'll be waiting for your call.

You Just Got Punk'd: 6 Quintessential Star Stings in Honor of Bet's Reboot

You Just Got Punk'd: 6 Quintessential Star Stings in Honor of Bet's Reboot
From 2003 to 2007, one man had the most feared name in Hollywood: Ashton Kutcher.

The actor earned his reputation as one of the biggest pranksters in Tinseltown with the launch of Punk'd, his hidden-camera prank show that set out to trick the biggest stars around.

Though the show was revived back in 2012 for a one-season run with new host Justin Bieber, it's been far too long since we could watch celebrities accidentally break things, get their property "repossessed" and – on one memorable instance – even be accused of kidnapping. Luckily, our long prank drought has finally come to an end: Punk'd returns

'Tangerine': Inside the Transgender Revenge Comedy of the Year

'Tangerine': Inside the Transgender Revenge Comedy of the Year
Director Sean Baker remembers the first time he saw his muse.

Several blocks from where the filmmaker lived in West Hollywood, at the intersection of Highland Ave and Santa Monica Blvd, there's a corner that is, in his words, "known for its drama and its chaos." That's where the neighborhood's transgender sex workers hung out, and for weeks, he and his cowriter Chris Bergoch had been trying to ingratiate themselves. A few people showed mild interest; most simply gave them the brush-off. Then one day, Baker noticed a tall, striking

Bet Is Reviving Punk’d; Justin Timberlake Is Already Crying
Here's another revival for the slate: Bet is bringing back Punk'd, Ashton Kutcher's brilliant prank show that brought celebrities to their knees. You are correctly remembering that MTV brought Punk'd back briefly in 2012, when it featured rotating guest hosts like Justin Bieber. As of yet, Bet hasn't announced who would be attached to the project, but said that the show would be "tailored" to its audience. Kutcher set the bar when he tricked Jt into believing the government was seizing all of his property. Go forth and make some tears, Bet!
