Pretty Woman Indeed! Julia Roberts Named World's Most Beautiful Woman Yet Again


Julia Roberts

At nearly 50 years old, Julia Roberts is still winning awards for her beauty. This year marks the fifth time the actress has been named the World's Most Beautiful Woman - quite the record as the title has only previously been snapped up twice by the same person.

Julia Roberts at Cannes Film Festival Julia Roberts at Cannes Film Festival 

Twenty-six years after the 'Pretty Woman' star first won the World's Most Beautiful Woman title by People in 1991, she is now on to her fifth time being named so after subsequent wins in 2000, 2005 and 2010. Jennifer Aniston was last year's Most Beautiful, marking her second time after 2004.

Johnny Depp Named Hollywood's Most Overpaid Actor For Second Year In A Row


Johnny Depp Will Smith Channing Tatum Will Ferrell George Clooney Julia Roberts

Capping off a rather horrid 2016 for Johnny Depp is the news that he’s been judged by Forbes to be Hollywood’s most overpaid actor for the second year in a row, following a handful of big-budget disappointments at the box office this year.

The 53 year old megastar topped Forbes’ annual list of actors whose movies have underperformed at cinemas compared to their budgets, after his much vaunted sequel Alice Through the Looking Glass flopped at the box office in comparison to its predecessor.

Ellen DeGeneres Oscars Selfie Destroys Twitter: But Which Celeb Had The Best Bomb?


Ellen Degeneres Kevin Spacey Lupita Nyong'o Jennifer Lawrence Channing Tatum Bradley Cooper Brad Pitt Meryl Streep Angelina Jolie Jared Leto Julia Roberts

Pretty much everyone has seen the Ellen Degeneres Oscars selfie by now; the celeb-packed pic that sent the Twittersphere into melt-down and quickly became the most retweeted image of all time. The Oscars host somehow gathered the cream of the awards' red carpet for last night's impromptu snap, which has become the evening's most shared and talked about image.

The glory of the Oscars selfie lies in the pure and unabashed joy seen on every one of its twelve featured Hollywood stars' faces.

Shirley Temple

RIP Shirley Temple: For younger generations, the death of Shirley Temple may not be as heart-rending as for those who grew up with the adorable, depression-era actress and watched her help pull America out of its slump. Temple died peacefully at home aged 85 on the 10th February after a life of reinventing herself and bringing joy to others through her many talents. You may or may not know that Temple was huge in China, but why? Find out here. Shirley Temple: 1928-2014.

Samuel L Jackson Makes Himself Clear: Samuel L Jackson has been involved in what was arguably the biggest foot-in-mouth moment of the year so far. In an interview with KTLA's so-called "entertainment reporter," Sam Rubin, Jackson was asked about his recent Super Bowl commercial...only, the Robocop actor didn't have a Super Bowl commercial, leading to quizzical stares and the immortal quote "what Super Bowl commercial?" as it dawned on the star that Rubin had him confused with fellow black actor, Laurence Fishburne. Read about the fall-out and watch the toe-curling video here.

Did Julia Roberts' Half-Sister Nancy Motes Plan To Derail Her Oscars Chances?


Julia Roberts Emma Roberts

The half-sister of actress Julia Roberts, Nancy Motes, was found dead last Sunday after what is believed to have been a prescription drugs overdose. Motes, who was 37 when she died, was found dead in a bathtub in the LA residence she shared with her fiancé, John Dilbeck. Though it has not yet been determined whether Motes' death was accidental or a suicide, indications of a suicide note - reported to be eight pages long - was found at the apartment.

Julia Roberts' Half Sister, Nancy Motes, Was Found Dead Last Sunday.

Nancy and Julia shared the same mother but not their father. Since Nancy's death, Dilbeck has felt compelled to deny speculation that his fiancée was a drug addict after reports that Julia has tried to save her half-sister dozens of times by encouraging her to seek help in rehab. However, a neighbour and apparent close friend of Nancy's has claimed that the TV worker's death wasn't the result of recklessness: It was "not a Philip Seymour Hoffman thing' but a planned suicide," they said.

Evan Peters Thought Emma Roberts Was "Weird"


Emma Roberts Evan Peters Julia Roberts Chelsea Handler

Emma Roberts, the niece of actress Julia Roberts and one of the stars of American Horror Story: Coven, appeared on Chelsea Lately on Wednesday (January 29th). She told the show's host, Chelsea Handler, about her first encounter with fiancé and American Horror Story co-star, Evan Peters.

Emma Roberts discussed her relationship with Evan Peters on Chelsea Lately.

Roberts and Peters met in 2012 on the set of the comedy Adult World and, although Roberts was taken with 27-year-old Peters, the feeling wasn't initially mutual. Roberts claimed from the onset she was determined the two would get together, she told Handler: "I actually, on the set, was like, 'Oh yeah, we're totally going to date.'"

August: Osage County Review


Extraordinary

Tracy Letts adapts his own prize-winning play into a blistering depiction of one of cinema's most dysfunctional families ever. It's still rather theatrical, throwing a mob of top actors into a room for what feels like a fight to the death, but it's so well written and so beautifully observed by the actors that we can't look away. And of course Meryl Streep walks off with the show.

Everything kicks off when Beverly Weston (Shepard) goes missing, leaving his ruthlessly straight-talking, pill-popping wife Violet (Streep) to assemble the family in their rambling Oklahoma home. They have three equally feisty daughters: Barbara (Roberts) is a tightly wound bundle of anger with an estranged husband (McGregor) and surly teen daughter (Breslin) in tow; Karen (Lewis) is a free-spirited floater with yet another random boyfriend (Mulroney); and Ivy (Nicholson) is fed up with being the dutiful daughter who stayed close to home. Also on hand is Violet's sister Mattie Fae (Martindale), whose husband (Cooper) is the family patriarch now that Beverly is gone, which means their son (Cumberbatch) feels even more useless than normal.

What plot there is centres on skeletons rattling out of closets and relationships imploding spectacularly. The film is a series of brutally intense encounters between people who probably still love each other in vaguely undefined ways and express it through bitter bursts of witty cruelty. Streep has the meatiest role as the imperious Violet, who knows a lot more than she's letting on. And her chief rival is Barbara, played with unnerving intensity by Roberts. The only person we even remotely like is Mattie Fae, and the always-superb Martindale finds all kinds of layers in the character.

'August: Osage County' Reviews Preoccupied With Adaptation Issues


Meryl Streep Ewan McGregor Julia Roberts

August: Osage County appears to have all the qualities needed to make a movie to combat January blues: a stellar cast, strong female characters and enough gentle humour to rival a Richard Curtis script. But do critics agree?

Julia Roberts
Julia Roberts stars in August: Osage County.

Based on the play by Tracy Letts, the film follows a group of strong, and somewhat eccentric, women in the Weston family and is centred on their Midwest childhood home at the time of a family crisis. Meryl Streep (The Iron Lady), Margo Martindale (The Americans), Julia Roberts (Eat, Pray, Love), Juliette Lewis (Open Road) and Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine) star as the women of the Weston family. Ewan McGregor (Salmon Fishing in the Yemen); Dermot Mulroney (New Girl); and Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) appear in supporting roles.

Julia Roberts Honors George Clooney, Or 'George Looney' At Britannia Awards

Julia Roberts honored her great friend George Clooney at BAFTA's Britannia Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday night (November 9, 2013), meaning Sacha Baron Cohen accidentally killing an old woman wasn't the only notable highlight.

Roberts presented her close pal with the Stanley Kubrick Award for Excellence in Film, joking, "I'm normally in my second REM cycle by now so let's get this done," after being pushed on-stage in a wheelchair while barefooted.

The jokes went on. "There are two obvious reasons why I was chosen to do this: one, Brad Pitt was out of town. Two, Matt Damon, he's in town, but he was unavailable," said Roberts, to rousing laughter, according to E! Online.

Sacha Baron Cohen's Hilarious Stunt Steals The Show At BAFTA-LA Britannia Awards

Sacha Baron Cohen not only left the Beverly Hilton with the highest honour awarded for comedy by the BAFTA-LA ‘s annual Britannia Awards, but also left with the audience either still in shock or holding on to their sides with laughter following an inspired practical joke. Los Angeles' British alliance was out in force for the Saturday (9 Nov.) night ceremony, and there were even a few non-Brit Hollywood heavyweights doing their best to pretent to be from the other side of the Atlantic for the awards show.

Airing on BBC America on Sunday (10 Nov.) night, host Rob Brydon had the job of handling the more raucous than usual crowd, which had plenty to do with Cohen's stunt. It began when Salma Hayek came on stage with an elderly woman to present the Charlie Chaplin Britannia Award For Excellence In Comedy award. Confined to a wheelchair, she was identified as Grace Collington, an actress she said appeared with Charlie Chaplin in 1931′s City Lights when she was just 5-years-old. She very believably told the audience, “At 87, she’s the oldest surviving actor to have worked with Chaplin in a silent movie,” at which point Cohen climbed to the stage to accept the honour. The elderly woman presented Cohen with one of Chaplin's trademark canes, at which point Cohen pushed her from the stage and began his acceptance speech as 'Collington' lied motionless on the ground.

Julia Roberts' Sister, Nancy Mote, Blames 'Pretty Woman' Star For Low Self-Esteem

Julia Roberts allegedly bullied her sister, Nancy Motes, and caused her to feel embarrassed of her weight. Motes was 20 stone when she decided to undergo gastric bypass surgery last year. Since the operation she has lost 7 stone.

Motes low self-esteem was, allegedly, exacerbated by Roberts who would criticise Motes for her weight. It seems Motes constantly felt as though she was being compared to her sister. On the subject she said "I think growing up as Pretty Woman's little sister has definitely made me try to see the person inside and not the person outside. A lot of my life I felt judged for my weight."

Emma Roberts has attracted the wrong kind of attention after an argument between her and her boyfriend concerned other hotel guests to the extent that the police were called to break up the ugly scene. The young actress and her boyfriend Evan Peters were discovered post-scuffle by police, with Peters said to have had "obvious physical injuries," tells a source speaking to TMZ.com. The Kickass actor has a bloodied nose and what looked distinctly like a bite mark, leading to Roberts being arrest after it appeared she had inflicted the wounds upon her lover.

HBO To Produce Larry Kramer's The Normal Heart


Julia Roberts Mark Ruffalo Matt Bomer

HBO will produce a brand new adaptation of Larry Kramer’s The Normal Heart.

The adaptation was first announced by The Hollywood Reporter a year ago, but it looks like it will finally be going into production later this year. The adaptation is helmed by director Ryan Murphy and will star some hefty names in the business – Julia Roberts, Mark Ruffalo and Matt Bomer, to name a few. So, the wait might have actually been worth it. The Normal Heart is set to premiere sometime in 2014, but, this being HBO, don’t count on any concrete dates just yet. Nevertheless, the expectations, at least on the network side of things, are pretty great: "We are so proud to be involved with this monumental project,” says HBO programming president Michael Lombardo. “Ryan has assembled an extraordinary cast to bring Larry Kramer’s landmark theatrical achievement to the screen for the first time, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to bring this important film to HBO.”

At this point, not much is known about the production, other than the fact that it has some impressive names attached to it. Of course, if 2012 has taught us anything, it is that big names aren’t always a guarantee for success. But, at such an early stage, they are as close as you can get.

Mirror Mirror Review


Good
Both lavishly produced and light-hearted in tone, this fractured fairy tale aspires to be The Princess Bride, and actually gets it right from time to time.

While it's too uneven and corny to be a classic, it's still a lot of fun.

After the King disappears, his daughter Snow White (Collins) is raised by her conniving step-mother (Roberts), who plots with her right-hand man (Lane) to steal the kingdom from Snow. Then handsome Prince Alcott (Hammer) arrives and shakes things up, immediately falling for Snow, which sends the queen into even crazier fits of jealousy. She sends Snow into the woods to be eaten by a mythical beast, but Snow instead befriends a gang of dwarf bandits (Povinelli, Klebba, Saraceno, Prentice, Gnoffo and Woodburn), who teach her how to fight back.

Valentine's Day Review


Good
With an enormous ensemble cast and more intertwined plots than you can count, this fluffy concoction is shamelessly sentimental and silly, and yet it's also an undemanding crowd-pleaser.

Valentine's Day in Los Angeles brings a series of romantic crises. A flower seller (Kutcher) has proposed to his less-than-keen girlfriend (Alba), then discovers his best friend's (Garner) boyfriend (Dempsey) is married. A phone-sex operator (Hathaway) is afraid to tell her boyfriend (Grace) what she does for a living. An romance-hating publicist (Biel) is helping her client (Dane) manage a media storm. A group of teens (Swift, Lautner, Roberts and Jenkins) are grappling with chastity. And two strangers (Roberts and Cooper) strike up a conversation on a trans-Atlantic flight.

Notting Hill Review


Excellent
Julia Roberts is Julia Roberts - almost - in Notting Hill, a well-crafted romantic comedy from the geniuses behind Four Weddings and a Funeral.

The deceptively simple plot begins when uber-famous film star Anna Scott (Roberts) winds up in William's (Grant) book shop on Notting Hill, something of a British cross between a pre-Disney Times Square and a Moroccan street market. After William accidentally dumps orange juice down Anna's front, an on-again, off-again, on-again, off-again, on-again love affair blossoms.

Full Frontal Review


Excellent
For the uninitiated who know Steven Soderbergh only as the auteur behind such delights as Traffic and the Ocean's Eleven remake, know that Soderbergh was once far better known as a god of the indie film scene, the man behind movies like sex, lies & videotape, King of the Hill, and Schizopolis.

Like King of the Hill and the groundbreaking videotape, some of this work is genius.

The Mexican Review


Good

Brad Pitt plays a scatterbrained, indentured mob lackey on a do-or-die delivery assignment. Julia Roberts plays his neurotic, therapy-addicted girlfriend who made him promise he'd get out of the rackets. James Gandolfini is a hypersensitive crybaby hit man who kidnaps Julia to make sure Brad doesn't get any bright ideas about selling the antique pistol he's sent to fetch from south of the border.

This winning talent combo and a very droll, quite original script make "The Mexican" the first sublime cinematic bonbon of 2001 -- a consistently chuckle-packed caper comedy with charm and repartee to spare.

Directed by Gore Verbinski ("Mouse Hunt"), who effortlessly navigates several blindsiding but fine-tuned plot twists, "The Mexican" features Pitt as Jerry, a hapless, handsome perpetual screw-up who has been doing odd jobs for a mafioso to atone for causing a traffic accident -- an accident that inadvertently landed the kingpin in the clink (there was a body in his trunk at the time).

Runaway Bride Review


Good

Julia Roberts and Richard Gere have the kind of spellbound chemistry that can make even a movie riddled with flaws feel like an instant romantic comedy classic.

Like Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell, Debroah Kerr and Yul Brynner, Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan, when Roberts and Gere share the screen, there's just no denying something magical is happening between them.

Their eyes lock when they just glance at each other. They crack giddy smiles like they just can't help it. They're drawn to each other like magnets.
