Playing evil is more fun than playing good anyway, right?
Julia Roberts could have done Blind Side, but opted for Valentine's Day instead. Jack Nicholson was offered the role of Michael Corleone, but felt it was an offer he could refuse. Michelle Pfeiffer didn't want to be Clarice Starling, and Jeremy Irons pooh poohed the part of Hannibal Lecter, both t ... More >>
You may well have seen the trailer already. (There was a commercial on the Oscars just the other night.) It's The Heat, directed by the Bridesmaids guy.

Think about it. Hear much about Sandra Bullock lately? Gwyneth's movie career? Natalie Portman? (Yes, I know she has another Thor and a Terrence Malick film coming, but still.)
In theaters, on demand, or wherever
The show started with great dignity. Morgan Freeman came out and a friend of mine said, "Is that the one who fucks the granddaughter?"
Mug shot from Comedy Central's "Halfway Home"She's the favorite to win the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role as Minny in The Help, so it's only natural we learn a little more about the woman, right? Well, she's 39, 5'2", and hails from Montgomery, Alabama. Her mother worked as a ma ... More >>
You can run, but you can't hide -- just like Sandra Bullock in The Net (OMG!) : Google knows all about you (or thinks it does, at least.)
Check out my sassy column in which the gorgeous and talented co-star of A Dangerous Method tells me all about her hysteria-laden role, the assurances she needed before delving into it, and the reality behind the sadistic spanking scene. Keira (Oscar nominee for Pride and Prejudice) is very frank an ... More >>
This matchmaker cares about your private area
According to forbes.com. (10) Meryl Streep $10 million per picture. What???? She should make that just for waking up. (9) Sandra Bullock $15 million. I bet she'd trade all that in for one normal man. (8) Cameron Diaz. $18 million. I guess there's something about Mary.

Which hard working drag performer will you pick for Entertainer of the Year in Cherry Jubilee's Glammy awards race for club excellence? (Or will you just write in Sandra Bullock?)

She reportedly turned down The Blind Side and The Proposal, two smashes that ended up making Sandra Bullock the hottest property in Hollywood except for the sex rehab center where her husband ended up. But now Julia Roberts has said yes to what seems like a sure thing: Eat Pray Love After ... More >>
Today, that is. (Spare me votes for Carole Lombard). Your choices are:
Remember the old days, like before the recession, when talking about money was considered "gauche" and frowned upon at cocktail parties and sophisticated events? Well, now, thanks to so many people losing their jobs and the Real Housewives franchise being such a hit -- not to mention Goldman ... More >>
• There are just three days of April left and it's cold! Today will be in the high 50s, chilly and windy, with occasional showers. But the weekend highs are in the 80s, so hang in there.

Despite having survived the Great Summer of Wetness '09, it seems we tri-staters are having a hard time with this recent spate of precipitation. Yes, we're only 2 inches away from the "wettest March on record" (in 1973, 10.5 inches). Yes, rivers have flooded, trees have fallen, power has be ... More >>
When I win an Oscar for Best Actress, I am certainly not going to accept it with a morose pout, then promptly go into hiding in humiliation in order to work out the details of my shattered personal life. But that's just what poor Sandra Bullock had to do because her man, Jesse James had date ... More >>
Jesse James obviously has an affinity for porn stars. In fact, he clearly favors them over Oscar winners. The disgraced husband of Sandra Bullock was recently revealed to have dated some self-promoting heat-seeking ball of tattoos named Michelle Bombshell. And the latest bombshell on Michel ... More >>

10! 10! 10! What happens when the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences radically shakes things up, nominating not five but TEN films for best picture? A Sandra Bullock movie makes the list. So: Which five of the ten are the real nominees, and which are just padding? Let's make an u ... More >>
Did anyone think the Best Actress Oscar race would boil down to a battle royale between the greatest actress of her generation, Meryl Streep, and Miss Congeniality, Sandra Bullock? No, but with both ladies' Golden Globes wins, that exactly what it's shaping up as. Mind you, I've always trum ... More >>

Sandra Bullock's based-on-a-true-story movie The Blind Side made more money than New Moon last weekend, and it's in way fewer theaters! It's a runaway smash for my girl Sandy, wiping away memories of her recent bomb whatchamacallit...oh, yeah, All About Steve. But why? Well, I know why! Th ... More >>
That's the story TV Guide sent around to the media yesterday, claiming that Wisteria Lane had become Hysteria Lane since desperate housewife Teri Hatcher told coworkers she was diagnosed with the H1N1 virus. Was it from that time she supposedly kissed Ryan Seacrest in public? It's a moot poi ... More >>
No, not All About Steve, the new Sandra Bullock vehicle that's not going to nab that many Oscars. I mean All About Eve, the classic 1950 movie starring Bette Davis as a brittle, aging diva whose entire life is supplanted by a young con artist with a smile and a psychological hatchet in her purse.
Wait, let me try to clarify that headline. I have no idea if emerging star Bradley Cooper is uncircumsized or not (though I have my suspicions). But I HAVE exclusively learned that his small role had been cut out of the upcoming comedy Old Dogs (starring Robin Williams and John Travolta), bu ... More >>
Not all bold-face names are celebutards who need an hour and a half to watch 60 Minutes. Some of them are actually quite brainy, as I--who push tape recorders in their faces on a regular basis--should know. The smartest famous people I've ever interviewed are:
Sex dolls come to life in new exhibit
Be forewarned: Time-warped Sandra Bullock flick not as bad as you think
Glamour, heartbreak, and some interpretive dance
