    Halle Berry Dumps Her Fake Breasts Into Guacamole

    Movie 43 is the outrageous new comedy anthology film in which Hugh Jackman finally has balls. (He takes off his shirt to reveal testicles hanging from his chin, as Kate Winslet looks appalled.) On the set, Halle Berry wanted to be part of the wacky fun and bump up the shock value of her performanc ... More >>

    Why Does Jon Hamm Stay With His Lady?

    You know, Jennifer Westfeldt, the Tony nominated actress/writer/etc. whose Friends with Kids movie Hamm recently appeared in. Easy: Because they really like each other. But what I'm actually trying to get at is this: Seeing how so many Hollywood relationships explode when one member of the couple ... More >>

    It's A Great Year For Best Actress

    ​The Emmy nominations came out today, but my mind is stuck on the Oscars and how there will be no shortage of leading actress contenders to pick from in 2011. Not only is Meryl Streep donning prosthetics and an accent again, this time as moxieish Margaret Thatcher, but we have the following o ... More >>

    Kate Winslet Cancels Out of Autism Premiere

    ​The big draw for tonight's premiere of HBO's A Mother's Courage: Talking Back to Autism was the little lady who did the narration--someone by the name of Kate Winslet. Several journalists I know were planning to go in hopes of cornering Kate to ask her, not about autism, but about her upcomi ... More >>

    My Heart Goes Out To Sandra Bullock

    Winslet and Mendes Breakup: The Oscar Curse Again?

    ​ I'm a big believer in the Oscar curse on celebrity marriages: When one party in a couple wins the award, especially if it's a woman, the relationship often crumbles to the curb even harder than Meryl's chance for a third trophy. It's just too much for a show biz ego, particularly a male on ... More >>
