Why Cameron Diaz Left Hollywood: Inside Her Off-the-Radar Life

Why Cameron Diaz Left Hollywood: Inside Her Off-the-Radar Life
A decade ago, Cameron Diaz was the highest-paid actress in Hollywood. In the 12 months leading up to June 2008, she had earned roughly $50 million, according to Forbes, thanks to being a star of the four-part Shrek franchise, plus live-action turns in the comedy What Happens in Vegas and the tear-jerker My Sister's Keeper, which came out the following year. "Cameron Diaz, that's my girl. Now she's a bloody top actress, isn't she?" Eric Bana's completely obnoxious husband said in front of his actress wife played by Leslie Mann in Judd Apatow's 2010 comedy Funny People. "...Ahhh, Something About Mary. I love that movie! She's...

The Notebook director Nick Cassavetes takes over Road House remake starring Ufc champion Ronda Rousey

The Notebook director Nick Cassavetes takes over Road House remake starring Ufc champion Ronda Rousey
The long-awaited Road House remake has found a new director: Nick Cassavetes, who previously brought the world The Notebook, John Q and My Sister's Keeper.

He replaces Fast & Furious director Rob Cohen, who was originally attached to the project.

Ufc star Ronda Rousey is playing the role made famous by the late Patrick Swayze in MGM's revival, bouncing for notorious dive bar the Double Deuce.

Before you worry whether the man who helmed the notorious blub-fest The Notebook is the right person for the job, remember that he also wrote and directed the excellent Alpha Dog.

Sure, there was The Other Woman last year - 23% on Rotten Tomatoes - but let's just pretend that didn't happen.

The Road House remake has no confirmed release date, but is set to start shooting early next year.

Ronda Rousey's 'Road House' Remake Gets 'The Notebook' Director

Ronda Rousey's 'Road House' Remake Gets 'The Notebook' Director
Just one month after it was announced that Ronda Rousey will star in MGM's remake of the 1989 cult classic Road House, the project has found its director. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Nick Cassavetes (The Other Woman, The Notebook) has come aboard to helm the action-packed drama. Our initial report from last month revealed that the studio is currently meeting with screenwriters, and production is scheduled to begin sometime next year.

The original Road House was released in 1989, starring Patrick Swayze, just two years after his breakout performance in Dirty Dancing. The story centered on Patrick Swayze's Dalton, who is hired to bring some order to the rowdiest bar in Missouri, known as The Double Deuce. Along with the nightly barrage of violent drunks, Dalton must also contend with a corrupt businessman, who is trying to destroy the bar and the small town along with it.

Abigail Breslin Lets an Ex-Boyfriend Know
Abigail Breslin has taken her first big step into the music industry (and by step, we mean she straight up jumped in with a bang. The actress—who is best known for her roles in Little Miss Sunshine, My Sister's Keeper, and Ender's Game—released her first-ever music video today. Yep, she's a singer now.

Cameron Diaz hosts 'Saturday Night Live' this weekend -- talk about it here!

Cameron Diaz hosts 'Saturday Night Live' this weekend -- talk about it here!
It pains me to write this, but: Cameron Diaz has had a rough few years, career-wise. For the past half-decade, she's starred mostly in films that failed critically, commercially, or both. The role call: Sex Tape, The Other Woman, The Counselor, Gambit (which wasn't even released theatrically in the Us), What to Expect When You're Expecting, The Green Hornet, Knight and Day, and The Box. (A few exceptions: Bad Teacher, which got mixed reviews but grossed over $100 million—enough to inspire both a quickly-canceled CBS sitcom and a sequel, which is still in development—My Sister's Keeper, which landed more

Box Office: What's the Secret to 'The Other Woman''s Surprise Success?

Who'd have thought that skinny Cameron Diaz could kick Captain America to the curb so decisively? Not the box office pundit class, that's for sure.

Predictions for Diaz's new comedy, "The Other Woman," were modest, with some experts foreseeing a debut as low as $13 million, or maybe $18 to $20 million at best. Instead, the film opened with an estimated $24.7 million, enough to dethrone "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" after three weeks on top (it earned an estimated $16.0 million).

Really, after such comedy hits as "Bridesmaids," "The Heat," and Diaz's own "Bad Teacher," it's time for the experts to stop being surprised every time one of these risqué, female-driven comedies is a smash. They're not standard romantic-comedy (or romantic-weepie) chick flicks, but they're not flukes either. It's a growing and evolving genre. And as the success of "Other Woman" -- despite its lackluster reviews -- suggests, it's a genre with an ever

The Other Woman Review

  • TheMovieBit
Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. It's an old saying, and one that has formed the basis of many a Hollywood revenge comedy. Now it's time for The Other Woman to use that quote for inspiration, with  Cameron Diaz playing Carlie, who after finding out her new boyfriend Mark (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) is married, inadvertently becomes friends with his wife Kate (Leslie Mann). When the pair discover he has yet another mistress (Kate Upton), the three team up to get revenge. Coming from director Nick Cassavetes (The Note Book, Alpha Dog, My Sister's Keeper), The Other Woman wastes no time getting into the meat of the story, but drags its heels once Carlie and Kate discover each other's existence. These scenes of Carlie and Kate forming a friendship are fun, mainly down to Leslie Mann (more on that later), but soon outstay their welcome, and only succeed in dragging out an already wafer plot.

The Other Woman review: Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann's revenge fantasy

The Other Woman review: Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann's revenge fantasy
Director: Nick Cassavetes; Screenwriter: Melissa Stack; Starring: Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, Kate Upton, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Nicki Minaj; Running time: 109 mins; Certificate: 12A

The Other Woman will divide audiences straight down the middle and even those of the fairer sex, who might cringe at the faux 'female empowerment' pitch, may be pleasantly surprised. First, let's get one thing straight: obsessing over a man who did you wrong - to the point where you start dressing like a ninja and stalking him for payback - is not big and it's not clever. But, you know what? It's kinda funny.

The friction between Leslie Mann and Cameron Diaz generates bright comedy sparks in a story that is otherwise trite and predictable, but just as important is their gradual warming towards each other. Mann is the good little wife "cute Kate", while Diaz is the careerist singleton Carly who doesn't know she is dating

Cameron Diaz & Leslie Mann Versus Men in 'The Other Woman' Trailer

"Put the lawyer, the wife and the boobs together and we know how to do it just as shady as he does." Well, this one looks like it's for the ladies. Rather than going the route of typical romantic comedies and having Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann fight over the same man, this time they're teaming up against a two-timing player (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau of "Game of Thrones") in The Other Woman. And when they stumble upon the revelation that there's another woman (Kate Upton) he's been fooling around with, the plot thickens. Now it's all three women against one guy for revenge. It's better than the typical romance. Here's the first trailer for Nick Cassavetes' The Other Woman, originally from Apple: The Other Woman is directed by Nick Cassavetes (My Sister's Keeper, Alpha Dog, The Notebook) and written by Melissa Stack in her feature screenwriting debut. After discovering her boyfriend is married,

50 dedications at the end of movies (and what they mean)

Odd List Simon Brew 15 Nov 2013 - 07:08

Lots of films are dedicated to, or in memory of someone. But it's not always clear why. We've been finding out...

Back when Breaking Bad returned for its final batch of episodes in August 2013, it had a dedication at the end of it. The card read 'Dedicated to our friend Kevin Cordasco'. As it turned out, Kevin Cordasco was a 16-year old who had been battling cancer for seven years, who had met both Bryan Cranston and Vince Gilligan. Cordasco died before he could ever get to see the episode dedicated to him.

I found this such a moving story, that it got me wondering about the dedications that appear on films, and what the story behind them was. After all, the dedications are there for a reason. What I uncovered was some funny stories, mainly extremely sad ones, and some extremely moving dedications.

Jason Patric Inspires Controversial Sperm-Donor Rights Legislation in California

Jason Patric Inspires Controversial Sperm-Donor Rights Legislation in California
What started as a child custody dispute between Jason Patric and a former girlfriend has evolved into a controversial, high-profile case that could change California law. Patric, 47, star of The Lost Boys, Sleepers and My Sister's Keeper, has become intimately intertwined with a California state bill that would give sperm donors the ability to sue for parentage rights. As part of a fertility treatment, Patric donated sperm in 2009 to a former girlfriend, massage therapist Danielle Schreiber, that resulted in her pregnancy, according to ABC News. He then decided he wanted to help raise the child, Gus, now 3, but was thwarted

Nicki Minaj: I Don't Work Out or I Lose My Curves
Though Nicki Minaj often flaunts her toned figure in skin-tight dresses, according to the 30-year-old rapper, she doesn't works out -- in fact, she claims that hitting the gym actually has a negative effect on her famous figure.

"I don't work out. I hate it. I don't mean to sound super lazy," Minaj surprisingly says when asked about her normal workout routine in a Q&A with her Twitter fans for her Marie Claire August cover interview. "I tried it for a time. I lost my boobs."

However, she does diet to maintain her physique.

"When I feel I need to lose weight, I just change what I eat," she explains. "I cut out carbs and sugar. I'll do water and protein and fruit. But I do think that you should work out."

In the interview, Minaj also dishes on her experience judging American Idol -- where she was a controversial

11 Unforgivable Changes Made To Book Adaptations (Spoilers)

11 Unforgivable Changes Made To Book Adaptations (Spoilers)
Sometimes, a movie can veer away from the plot of the book it's based on, and it's still an amazing movie ("Blade Runner" and "The Shining" come to mind, although Stephen King was so unhappy with "The Shining" adaptation that he decided to go off and make his own version, and it was horrible).

Other times, filmmakers make changes when adapting books that make the films even bigger stinkers than they would have been had they stuck to the plot in front of them. There are also some examples where the movie on the whole isn't bad, but the filmmakers throw in some random new content that often leaves me wondering, What were they thinking by adding that?! They had a perfectly good story without it.

Here are some of the changes made in the book-to-movie making process that I find absolutely unforgivable. These Contain Spoilers but then you wouldn't
