Ellen Page thinks she's fallen in love with acting even more since coming out as gay in 2014.
Ellen Page has become a better actress since coming out as gay.
The 29-year-old actress revealed her sexuality to the world during a speech at the Human Rights Campaign's 'Time to Thrive' conference in Las Vegas in February 2014 and believes she's more ''in love'' with her job since she declared her true self to the world.
In an interview with the Metro newspaper she was asked if coming out has helped her acting, to which she replied: ''Yes, one hundred per cent. I feel more excited and inspired and in love with my job than I ever have and I think a huge part of that is having your authentic self be aligned with your creative self.''

A New York comedy with vivid characters and a contrived plot, this feels rather a lot like a Woody Allen movie. Although writer-director Rebecca Miller keeps it rather cute and silly, avoiding the more pointed issues raised in her script. Still, the snaky, farcical story is very entertaining, and the witty performances from the terrific cast make it well worth a look.
Greta Gerwig plays Maggie, a woman who has given up on finding the perfect man, so she sets out to have a child using a donation from a pickle entrepreneur (Travis Fimmel). Then just after she has the fertilisation procedure, she falls for her fellow professor John (Ethan Hawke), who's looking for a reason to leave his haughty Danish wife Georgette (Julianne Moore). Three years later, Maggie and John are settled down with their toddler daughter. But Maggie is frustrated that John has become aimless, unable to finish his long-in-the-works novel. She's also somehow ended up raising his and Georgette's kids (Mina Sundwall and Jackson Frazer). So she hatches a plan to get Georgette to take him back.
The premise is ingenious, and Miller fills it in with colourful characters and lots of detail, plus several convenient twists and implausible turns of the plot. This keeps the film from ever becoming more than a bit of nutty fluff, but at least it's entertaining fluff. Gerwig and Hawke are superb as self-involved people whose relationship develops in surprisingly resonant ways. Both are sympathetic but not hugely likeable in the way they remain oblivious to everyone around them, and watching them interact is a lot of fun. But the entire film is stolen by Moore in a hilariously spiky turn as the high-maintenance Georgette, who peers imperiously through her riotous array of furs and scarves but can only barely hide the fragile person inside.

Katniss Everdeen is determined to take down President Snow once and for all. Too many lives have been sacrificed and too many homes destroyed while the Capitol has brainwashed and controlled the people of Panem. Now re-united with Peeta after his rescue from Snow's clutches, Katniss gathers her friends from District 13 - Gale, Finnick and Cressida - and sets out on the ultimate mission to free Panem, and fight Snow to the death. But it seems it's not only Snow that wants Katniss dead, as she becomes increasingly paranoid about some of the supposed rebels. Facing increasing uncertainty, more tragedy and some of the worse warfare she could possibly imagine, Katniss starts to realise that ending the nightmare won't end the fear or the collective sorrow.
Laurel Hester and Stacie Andree couldn't be more different. While the former is a highly respected New Jersey police detective with decades of experience in the force, the latter is 20 years younger with less of an established career. Hester's always been cautious about relationships due to her struggles with privacy, but she had no idea how much her life would be thrust into the spotlight when she fell for Andree. The couple had barely settled down in beautiful home, wistfully contemplating their future dreams when Hester was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. Not only did Andree face losing the love of her life, but also her home and the life they had built together. Straight couples could get married and leave their spouse with their pension benefits after they'd passed, but this privilege is denied to Hester and Andree simply because they are a same-sex couple. With the support of gay Jewish activist named Steven Goldstein, they put their all into achieving equal rights for everyone.

Blake Lively had to clarify some remarks she made about Taylor Swift’s ‘Bad Blood’ music video.
Blake Lively, the 28-year-old Age of Adaline actor and wife of Ryan Reynolds, wasn’t mocking Taylor Swift with her recent Instagram post. Lively posted a picture in which she joked – as she later clarified in good humour – about being part of a music video for John Legend’s cover of Swift single ‘Bad Blood’.

Laurel Hester is a high-ranking New Jersey police detective who is hugely respected at work. While she never fails to earn recognition for her police services, she also manages to catch the eye of a young woman almost 20 years her senior. Stacie Andree's career is less high-flying but the pair find themselves connecting over their shared idyllic fantasies of a home and true love. However, their dreams are about to be shattered when Hester is diagnosed with terminal lung cancer, but she wishes to soften the blow by passing on her pension benefits to her Andree, so that she can afford to continue living in their new home. However, under Ocean County laws this is not possible for domestic partners - only married couples, and this is pre-marriage equality reforms. The couple implore the New Jersey Board of Chosen Freeholders to help sort this issue out, but as Hester grows ever weaker, it seems they're running out of time. With the help of Hester's supportive colleague Dane Wells and a gay Jewish activist named Steven Goldstein (the founder of Garden State Equality), they set out to defend the rights of same-sex couples across the state.

Having successfully rescued Peeta and the other Hunger Games victors, Katniss Everdeen is feeling the strain of being the Mockingjay for the rebel group of District 13. The propaganda is exhausting, and she is starting to become uncertain about who are the heroes and who are the villains. While victory over the Capitol looks in the rebels' favour, Katniss is becoming increasingly suspicious of President Coin - a suspicion which becomes all the more intense when she confronts the captured Panem leader President Snow. He seems intent on killing her, but he's not the only one. When the rebels' methods are shown to be just as hostile as the Capitol, Katniss has to decide which path the take and with the oncoming final Hunger Games, her decision is fated to change her life forever.

This isn't a tell-all doc about the iconic filmmaker: it's a love letter from his friends and family. With a terrific range of film clips, home movies, behind-the-scenes footage and never-seen stills, this movie explores how Robert Altman's work has forever changed the way Hollywood makes movies, simply because his inventive filmmaking style forced everyone else to try and keep up.
After getting his start directing industrial films in Kansas City, Altman made the jump to Hollywood in the late 1950s, annoying a range of studio executives with his preference for naturalistic, overlapping dialogue in television programmes. Then he made the jump to cinema and took the world by storm with M.A.S.H. In 1970, winning the Palme d'Or at Cannes and introducing the "Altmanesque" combination of earthy interaction, ensemble casts and political subtext. In his documentary, filmmaker Ron Mann cleverly asks many of Altman's actors to define the word Altmanesque, not as it relates to the movies but as it relates to the man himself.
Altman was a rare filmmaker who was loved by his casts and crews as well as the critics. Notoriously picky film journalist Pauline Kael famously wrote that "he can make film fireworks out of next to nothing", and this documentary demonstrates this with clips and backstage moments from his classics, ranging from McCabe and Mrs. Miller (1971), Buffalo Bill and the Indians (1976) and Popeye (1980) to The Player (1992), Short Cuts (1993) and Gosford Park (2001). The film's focus is on his movies, although it's narrated through personal interviews with Altman and his widow Kathryn Reed and features some superb footage of his sons. It also traces his ongoing health issues, from his heart transplant to his death from leukaemia in 2006. But there's little mention of his lifelong anti-war efforts or his controversial efforts to legalise marijuana.

The Oscar-winning actress recently revealed which of her fellow female movie stars she most admires, and the "camaraderie" of women.
The recent winner of the Oscar for Best Actress, Julianne Moore, is arguably the most popular women in Hollywood right now, but the 54-year-old actress recently revealed it is the work of her fellow female movie stars that often inspire her.

The directors of 'Still Alice' have come forward to explain the serious heart that went into the film, as one of them was suffering a similar affliction to the main character.
After Julianne Moore won the Oscar for her performance in 'Still Alice', the film climbed back into the US box office top 10, just as it opens across Europe this weekend. Co-director Wash Westmoreland is amazed at how the film has connected with people. "When you're an independent filmmaker you always have a dream version of how things will go," he said. "You have to live within the dream because often the reality is usually too brutal to deal with! But this time the reality has turned out to be better than the dream."

Most amazing to Westmoreland and his partner, co-director Richard Glatzer, is how the film seems to be changing the perception of Alzheimer's. They credit much of this reaction to Moore's remarkably sensitive performance. "You know, we've always been huge fans of her work," Westmoreland said. "Every character she plays is completely different but yet realistic, whether it's Amber Waves, Sarah Palin or Cathy Whitaker. She has the ability to project intelligence, to be emotionally vulnerable and to act without words. I think in a lot of her movies, like 'Safe', she does a lot without speaking."
