Natalie Portman Channels Demi Moore's Famous Pregnancy Photo For The New Vanity Fair
Huffington Post - 30 days
Vanity Fair released the cover of its Hollywood Issue on Thursday, and at least one of the images inside the mag will look pretty familiar. Emma Stone, Lupita Nyong’o, Amy Adams, Natalie Portman, Ruth Negga, Dakota Fanning, Elle Fanning, Aja Naomi King, Janelle Monae, Greta Gerwig and Dakota Johnson star on the cover shot by ― who else? ― Annie Leibovitz.  The group of “wonder women” is pictured in a bevy of red carpet-worthy gowns in metallic and pink hues. Inside the magazine, a pregnant Natalie Portman posed for a truly breathtaking image in little more than a sheet. It’s a clear nod to the iconic 1991 photograph of naked and pregnant Demi Moore, famously shot by Leibovitz for that year’s August issue of Vanity Fair. As noted by Vanity Fair itself, while “the reference is clear, the moment is Portman’s alone.” Indeed. Head to Vanity Fair to see more gorgeous images from the shoot and be sure to pick up your own copy when it hits newsstands Feb. 7. -- This feed an ...

Cara Delevingne won't let Twitter shade stop her from promoting awareness of the refugee crisis
Yahoo News - about 2 months
On Friday, model/actress/eyebrow goals personified Cara Delevingne posted a vague tweet to her Twitter, writing,  "On my way to do something incredibly exciting and I am very nervous." It sounds perfectly innocent and definitely wouldn't bait any kind of harassment, right? Wrong.

Best Films Books Of 2016
Huffington Post - 3 months
It’s been a surprisingly good year for film books. Whether you are into biographies, film history, pictorials, “making of” books, or critical studies, there was something for just about everyone. This year’s list may top last year’s, which was also bountiful. As a matter of fact, there were so many worthwhile books in 2016 that I was forced to split this article into two pieces. In the coming days, I will post another article with just as many recommendations, if not more. A House Divided With Newt Gingrich’s call for a new House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC), there may be no relevant book than Hollywood Divided: The 1950 Screen Directors Guild Meeting and the Impact of the Blacklist (University Press of Kentucky) by Kevin Brianton. This new title centers on a now legendary meeting held by the Screen Directors Guild in 1950 (at the height of the anti-communist “Red Scare”) to consider the adoption of an industry loyalty oath. Among those present at the meeti ...

15 Of The Worst Movies On Netflix According To Rotten Tomatoes
Huffington Post - 8 months
Netflix can be a treasure trove of hidden gems (see: "The Babadook," "Short Term 12"), but for every great movie there are about 10 terrible ones clogging your feed.  To help you weed out a few of the bad seeds, we've put together a list of the worst films on the streaming service, according to their Rotten Tomatoes ratings. (But hey, "worst" is subjective here. Who doesn't love watching a terrible movie every now and then?)  With each of these films earning a 0 percent rating, it doesn't really get any worse. Happy watching! 1. "United Passions" (2014) "United Passions," starring Gérard Depardieu, is all about the rise of the FIFA World Cup. According to Tim Appelo at TheWrap, it's "one of those rare films so unfathomably ghastly you could write a better one while sitting through its interminable 110 minutes." 2.

LATimes - about 1 year
Yes, it's a comedy. And, yes, romance is involved. But don't call the new film "How to Be Single," which opens Friday in time for Valentine's Day, a romantic comedy (or its familiar abbreviation, a rom-com). "I feel like it's a tiny bit sexist and gets applied to movies that women are in," said...
