Tommu Wiseau is an ever secretive and Louisiana-born filmmaker who directed, wrote and starred in the 2003 romantic drama 'The Room' with Greg Sestero. It's a movie that has become a cult hit among film-lovers for all the wrong reasons, as it's considered to be one of the worst films ever made.
It follows the love triangle between banker named Johnny (Tommy's character), his lying wife Lisa ( protrayed by Juliette Danielle) and his best friend Mark (who is played by Greg Sestero). Amongst the random subplots that seemingly have no relation to the plot itself, we see Johnny struggling to quash Lisa's stories that she is the victim of domestic abuse.
James Franco stars as the filmmaker while his brother Dave Franco plays Greg Sestero in 'The Disaster Artist'; a comedic retelling of Sestero's 2013 memoir and a look at the making of this iconic flick. Amusingly Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero also star in this new movie - though they portray characters Henry and the casting agent respectively. Plus, Sestero previously claimed that Wiseau would only agree to this adaptation if he would be played by either James Franco or Johnny Depp.

The comedienne is sick of being labeled a sex comic, just because she’s female.
Amy Schumer hosted a one-hour comedy special on HBO Saturday night, titled 'Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo'. The comedienne delivered a set packed full of laughs and cringe-worthy stories during the 60 minutes, but behind many of the jokes she had an important message about gender inequality.
Now, ignoring the fact that in 2014, we’re still bestowing titles like The Sexiest, congratulations to Ms Upton on her very, very prestigious win. Given that the 22-year-old Vogue alumna is the first woman to receive the title, this may just be People’s gentle nod towards gender equality?

The lawsuit has been launched by several as-of-yet unnamed celebrities, affected by the leak.
The fallout continues after last month’s leaks of nude celebrity photos. This time, it’s Google on the chopping block. The company has been threatened with a $100 million lawsuit by the high-profile firm representing a dozen of the women, who had their photos stolen and privacy breached.
Though Apple are ambiguous on whether the photos were stored on the iCloud service, it denies that the hack was part of a large scale security breach and instead suggests the celebrities had usernames, passwords and security questions compromised.

Is The Other Woman the movie you should go this this weekend? Probably not, even if you do love Leslie Mann.
If you’re thinking about what new movie to see this weekend, The Other Woman might just be topping your list. It looks fun, has two very likeable female leads (plus a Sports Illustrated model) and it’s directed by the man behind The Notebook. Also it might have you think that it holds some kind of great female empowerment message as the three unite against a cheating spouse. But the reality is it looks like The Other Woman might be best left alone this weekend, as the critics are indicating that this one might be a bit too much farce and not enough comedy.
The plot of The Other Woman is actually pretty simple, Kate, played by Leslie Mann, finds out her husband Mark is cheating on her with Carly (Cameron Diaz). Rather than hate each other, the two women actually find out they have a surprising amount in common and become good friends. Then they learn that Mark has another woman, the 20 something Amber, played by Kate Upton. After the extent of his dastardliness is revealed all three women team up to plot their revenge on Mark with schemes such as putting Nair in his shampoo and adding female hormones to his juice.
The Other Woman follows in the footsteps of The First Wives Club, and Bridesmaids.
The 2011 breakout hit Bridesmaids seems to have made a permanent shift in gender dynamics of big Hollywood comedies. No longer happy to exist as idealised love interests, women are finally taking over. Bridesmaids scene-stealer Melissa McCarthy flexed her muscles further opposite Sandra Bullock in the buddy action-comedy The Heat.
And now Cameron Diaz pushes boundaries with her new comedy The Other Woman, which lays to rest the usual bitch-slap storyline. In this film, when a woman (Leslie Mann) discovers that her husband (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) is having an affair or two, instead of take on the other woman in a battle to the death, the wife teams up with his two mistresses (Diaz and Kate Upton) to get even.

While the story isn't particularly original, and the movie tends to drift over the top into broad slapstick, this comedy wins us over due to the camaraderie between the characters. Most refreshingly, this is a film about women teaming up rather than scratching each others' eyes out. So it continually catches us off guard in all the right ways.
In Manhattan, lawyer Carly (Cameron Diaz) has finally met the perfect man in Mark (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau). But just as their relationship is about to shift into something much more serious, she discovers that he has a wife, Kate (Leslie Mann), in the suburbs. Shocked, Carly and Kate realise that Mark is the person they should be angry at, so they team up to get even. When they discover that he has another mistress, Amber (Kate Upton), they recruit her to their plan as well. And then they find evidence that his business dealings are more than a little dodgy.
While the plot lends itself to a blackly comical approach, director Nick Cassavetes instead keeps everything silly and simplistic, letting the actresses overplay their scenes. Sometimes this results in something rather hilarious, but it also undermines any credibility the story might have. Mann and Coster-Waldau are the most guilty in this sense, chomping madly on the scenery. Instead, it's the way each character works together that brings the situations to life and keeps us laughing. Although a more confident approach to the material would have made the film much stronger.
