This is calculated by Forbes analysing the last three movies an actor has starred in before June 2016, excluding cameos, animated films and movies released on fewer than 2,000 screens.

The new comedy Bad Moms stars Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn as three stressed-out mothers who abandon their responsibilities and go on a self-indulgent binge, running afoul of a perfect-mom played by Christina Applegate.
Kunis has a 2-year-old daughter with actor Ashton Kutcher, and they're expecting a second child soon. So she feels like she can identify with her character's need to escape a particularly horrible day. "I think we all have those kinds of days," she says. "Actually it happens almost every day. Talking to my friends it will be like, 'Oh wait, me too! Let me tell you about what happened today!"'
As for being a bad mom, Kunis admits that she has had her moments. She remembers one day when she decided to take her daughter Wyatt to visit Kutcher at work. "To go anywhere, you have to pack all this stuff up in anticipation of everything going horribly wrong with the first baby," she laughs. "I was like, 'I did it!' I put her in the car. Like, I high-five myself. Then I'm driving down the 101 thinking, 'Oh my God, I'm doing really good today.' She was being really quiet, and I was like, 'Oh, let me look in the rearview mirror to make sure everything's OK.' And I look, and she's happy as can be, but just not nearly strapped in. She's just fine in her car seat, but nothing, no strap whatsoever. And I think I just turned white."

Tiny Fey has announced there will not be a sequel to 'Mean Girls', she may have done the right thing, if these other bad movie sequels are anything to go by!
Sorry to break it to you all of you Mean Girls’ fans who were vying for a sequel. Ms. Norbury AKA Tina Fey AKA scriptwriter of the original film, has gone on record to say “If everyone’s around, we might try to do some kind of like panel discussion.

First comes love, then comes... a shared gig on Kutcher's sitcom.
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are already engaged, so why not add a little screen love on top of it? Kunis will join her co-star on That 70s Show and now in life in his own show, as his love interest no less. According to the New York Daily News, Kunis will play Vivian, a traveler who unexpectedly drops into the life of Kutcher's Walden and has an instant connection with him. But there's a plot twist, of course. Walden is about to propose to someone else.
Onscreen and off, the two were inseparable, even before the engagement announcement.

It's not a case of director/actor conflict for 'Ted 2', just a creative decision.
Seth Macfarlane is replacing Mila Kunis with Amanda Seyfried as the female lead in Ted 2. According to Deadline, Kunis will either appear in a small role in the sequel or not appear at all. Apparently there’s no bad blood between Kunis and Macfarlane. The casting change was just a creative decision and Kunis continues to provide the voice of Meg Griffin on MacFarlane’s longrunning Family Guy.
Kunis [l] is out, to be replaced with Amanda Seyfried [r].
There might be some dramatic twist coming in the Ted sequel, if Kunis’ character Lori Collins is no longer in the picture. At the end of Ted Lori married Mark Wahlberg's John Bennett, so there must be some shakeup in the story – either between the two movies or at the beginning of the second one. The rest of the primary cast – Mark Wahlberg and MacFarlane himself as the voice of the foul-mouthed teddy bear – are, of course, reprising their roles.

Frank is a remarkable cop with a lot to look forward to in his life, but as happy as he is, he still has major worries for the people around him. His brother Chris has just been released from prison after a gang-related murder several years ago.

On the face of it, females topping the list looks like progression, but is it a manifestation of a male dominated field?
Emma Stone sits proudly atop the Forbes list of best value Hollywood stars with a return of $80 per $1 invested in her. Mila Kunis, Jennifer Lawrence and Natalie Portman behind her in a list dominated by young female actors. But are women only dominating this list due to inequality in Hollywood?
Emma Stone is officially the most lucrative actor, according to Forbes
Stone appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man, which was the biggest reason for her topping the list. The superhero film earned $750m, but it was Stone’s comparatively low wage for the film that garnered the lucrative ratio. If she’d been on par with some of the male actors in the film, that stat woudn’t have been so ‘attractive’.
Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum star in this futuristic sci-fi adventure.
The trailer has just been released for the the Wachowskis' 2014 futuristic sci-fi adventure Jupiter Ascending in which Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis star as two individuals whose lives become intertwined.
Mila Kunis Plays Cleaner Jupiter Jones In 'Jupiter Ascending.'
Kunis plays Jupiter Jones, a Russian toilet cleaner whose convinced her life will never amount to anything important on a grand scale. However, her humble existence is soon turned upside down when she encounters Channing Tatum's elf-like Caine, an interplanetary warrior, who tells Jupiter that she was born under a special night sky, with the stars pointing towards an extraordinary event and an incredible destiny.
Jupiter Jones is an impoverished janitor who dreams of a life with much more purpose than she is living. She is convinced that her life will always be one of the many in the world that is simply unimportant, but there are others out there who think differently. Jupiter was born under a night sky whose stars traced a very definite and critical destiny for her. Little does she know that the Earth is a tiny speck in a much larger cosmos ruled over by Queen of the Universe, but also that her genetic make-up makes her the one and only threat to the Queen as she is biologically destined to usurp her title. When an attempt is made on her life, she is rescued by former military hunter Caine; a genetically modified hybrid with human and wolf DNA. Will Jupiter find the strength to fulfil her destiny? Or is it something she could simply do without?

Mila Kunis watched her brother get married but could she hear wedding bells for herself?
Michael Kunis, Mila Kunis' brother, weds his fiancée in a romantic Floridian ceremony but it has been his sister's relationship that has come under the most scrutiny since. The actress stood by proudly with her long-term boyfriend Ashton Kutcher at her big brother's wedding in the sun-soaked peninsula of St. Petersburg, Florida. As Michael, 36, tied the knot with Alexandra Blacker, 29, thoughts drifted to the other couple in the room and whether they might be next in line to say "I do."

After two years apart, Kutcher and Moore's marriage has finally been voided, but what does this mean for Kutcher and his current squeeze?
Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore may have separated in 2011, but it wasn't until this month that their divorce was finalised at last, TMZ first reported. Kutcher filed for divorce from Moore, who he married in 2005, in December 2012, but disputes over money halted the progression of court proceedings until now.
Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore were once one of Hollywood's golden couples
The pair were squabbling about money for almost a year, with Demi demanding spousal support from Kutcher, despite the fact that she is worth more than the Two and a Half Men star. According to the TMZ report, Demi eventually backed down from that demand, allowing the divorce proceedings to finally progress. The question on everyone's mind now is, what does this mean for Ashton and his current flame, Mila Kunis?
The singer is set to rocket even more out of this world.

Lisa Robin Kelly's death is not being treated as suspicious, despite reports suggesting the rehab facility doctor may have made assumptions and not filed the correct paperwork. LAPD homicide investigators have handed the case over to the L.A. county coroner, who is awaiting the results of a toxicology report.
LAPD's homicide investigators may have ruled out any foul play in the death of Lisa Robin Kelly, but the That 70's Show actress's death remains ever mysterious.

Would 'The Social Network' actress make a good choice?
It's less than a year until the Fifty Shades of Grey movie is due in cinemas yet there doesn't seem to have been any firm casting decisions made. The movie, which will be an adaptation from EL James' best-selling erotic fiction of the same name, will have British director Sam Taylor-Johnson (Nowhere Boy) at its helm but nothing more appears to have been set in concrete.
Will Dakota Johnson Really Take The Lead 50 Shades Character?
The role of Christian Grey - the billionaire with a BDSM fetish - has been the most media-covered role so far, with Ian Somerhalder wanting the role, Garrett Hedlund rejecting the role and Taylor-Johnson's own husband, Aaron, rumored for the part. However, it has emerged that we may know who plays student-turned-sex-slave Anastasia Steele first, namely Dakota Johnson.
Lisa Robin Kelly's cause of death is unknown. A post mortem was carried out by an L.A. coroner on Saturday (17th August), however no cause of death could be confirmed. The coroner is waiting on the results of a toxicology report, according to sources speaking to a US entertainment website.
Lisa Robin Kelly's cause of death remains a mystery. The That 70's Show actress died in her sleep on Wednesday (14th August) whilst staying at an alcohol rehab centre in California.

Coroner's Office, speaking to TMZ, said the coroner is waiting for the results of a toxicology report. This could take a number of weeks, according to the spokesperson.

It seems Kelly was in a rehab facility in order to deal with her addiction problems. Wyckoff last spoke to his client on Monday when she seemed to be doing well. On this conversation he said "I spoke to her on Monday and she was hopeful and confident, looking forward to putting this part of her life behind her."
The model has reportedly auditioned for a role in the upcoming "mommy porn" movie. We look at the roles that could suit the quirky Cara, as she makes her foray into acting.
Will the Fifty Shades of Grey movie ever be cast? It's been months now and the only solid news we've had is that British filmmaker Sam Taylor-Johnson will be directing. The roles, which will undoubtedly include plenty of nudity, sex and BDSM, have been batted around from one actor to the next with seemingly no one ready to assign their names to Christian Grey or Ana Steele.
Time Is Running Out To Cast The Adaptation Of EL James' Hugely Successful Books.
Emma Watson and Mila Kunis have publically stated they don't want to be associated with the saucy fiction and so have Armie Hammer, Garrett Hedlund and Taylor-Johnson's husband himself, who have each said they don't see themselves as the whip-brandishing type...well at least not on screen. Ian Somerhalder was reportedly up for the role but was rejected by the series' author herself who said he just wasn't right. Will a cast ever be formed?

He won't be the one wielding the whips and chains.
Actor Garrett Hedlund has rejected the lead role in the adaptation of EL James' raunchy erotic novel, Fifty Shades of Grey due to being unable to commit to a trilogy. The movie, which has yet to cast a single role, is due for release in 2014 with the Nowhere Boy director, Sam Taylor Johnson, at the helm and the author herself as producer.
"Do I Really Want To Be Filmed Slapping Someone With A Paddle? Nah."
The Tron: Legacy actor had been reportedly hand-picked by the author herself to play the 27 year-old billionaire with a fetish for domination. However, the actor and boyfriend of Kirsten Dunst passed up on the opportunity to become the face of the biggest franchise since the series. A source speaking to US Magazine explained that "Doing a possible trilogy was too big a commitment, and producers wouldn't let him do just one film."

The erotic novel has taken another step towards the silver screen and looks on course to actually see the light of day
50 Shades Of Grey just became the biggest movie event of summer 2014 that isn't about super heroes, with Universal announcing their plans to have the film out by August 1 2014. The film will be quite the change from Guardians of the Galaxy, the Amazing Spider-Man 2 and X Men: Days of Future Past, but with a director, script and now a release date all lined up, the much-discussed movie adaption looks like it might finally happen after all. Still no work on who will be in it though, but that's just details.
So we know when the movie should be out, and providing director Sam Taylor-Johnson can keep things on track as soon as we get our Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey, then things are looking good. Taylor-Johnson was chosen to take on directing duties earlier this month and her announcement behind the camera has obviously given the producers confidence enough to push forward and commit to a date for when we'll see it on screen. Relatively inexperienced as a director, Taylor-Johnson could prove a competent pick nonetheless having achieved praise for her only work so far; the John Lennon biopic Nowhere Boy.

Channing Tatum has promised there will be a 'Magic Mike 2'. The actor has even suggested he may direct the movie.
Tatum is unsure if director Steven Soderburgh, who directed the first Magic Mike film, will be returning for the sequel. He said Soderburgh "really wants to be done directing movies". This has raised the possibility that Tatum could step into the director's shoes as well as starring. He said he would "shoot the sequel" despite being nervous about doing so.

A professional disagreement between actors Charlie Sheen and Selma Blair has resulted in Blair leaving 'Anger Management'; it seems highly likely that it was at the behest of Sheen.
Selma Blair will not be returning to Anger Management a spokesman from the comedy series has announced. Rumours have been circulating about a feud between Blair and the star of Anger Management, Charlie Sheen. The feud was revealed by TMZ on Monday when sources associated with the comedy series said Sheen would not return to the set if Blair was there.
Reports suggest the argument began when Blair criticised Sheen's work ethic in a meeting with Anger Management executives. Unfortunately for Blair, the notoriously irritable actor was informed of her complaint and made it quite clear that, using his powers as one of the show's producers, he would try to have Blair fired.
It was announced yesterday by an Anger Management spokesman that Blair would not be returning to the comedy. Rumours are currently circulating that Sheen has extended an offer to Mila Kunis (girlfriend of Ashton Kutcher, star of Two and a Half Men, a show from which Sheen was fired).

Les Misérables star, Eddie Redmayne is set to play Stephen Hawking in a new biopic Theory of Everything directed by James Marsh, according Deadline.com Redmayne is currently filming Jupiter Ascending starring alongside Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum.

Power couple Ashton and Mila sampled London's finest watering holes.
British royalty Princess Beatrice and boyfriend Dave Clark entertained Hollywood couple Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher over the weekend, taking them on a tour of London's swankiest bars and restaurants. Things started at the Duck & Waffle on the 40th floor of Heron Tower in East London, but soon headed to Callooh Callay in Shoreditch.
Next came the John Salt bar in Islington, North London, where the drinks kept on coming. "They asked for our best speciality dish, said John Salt boss Leigh Gillson, "We gave them deep fried banana in caramel." A source added: "It wasn't a boozy bender, more an upmarket crawl." Mila, 29 and Ashton, 35, are currently living in London while the actress shoots her new movie Jupiter Ascending.
According to the UK's Daily Mail, the foursome even managed to hit celebrity restaurant Scott's in Mayfair and the Spanish restaurant Cambio De Tercio in Kensington, where Mila and Ashton were given matching Real Madrid shirts - which they later wore.
Was Joss Whedon referring to Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, or someone else?
Joss Whedon has hinted that the brother-sister comic book duo of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch could feature in The Avengers 2. "I've got these two characters, two of my favourite characters from the comic book, a brother-sister act," he told Yahoo at the Iron Man 3 premiere, "They're in the movie."
Though he didn't directly reference Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch - and other siblings in the Marvel Universe include Aurora and Nothstar - the brother and sister are considered the most likely characters. Andrea and Andreas von Strucker, the villains collectively known as Fenris, are also twin brother and sister. There had been some speculation as to whether Marvel owned the rights to Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver (given that they're essentially X-Men chatacters) though during an interview with Hey U Guys, studio boss Kevin Feige said, "It's a little complicated. If they want to use them in an X-Men movie they could, if we want to use them in an Avengers movie we could. So that's that then.
Despite originating in the X-Men stories, the characters have actually played a central role in many of the biggest Avengers storylines. The question now is of course, who will play the brother sister team? Ryan Gosling? Mila Kunis? Is there anyone left who hasn't yet played a comic-book hero in either X-Men or The Avengers?

The couple took the opportunity to tour around the Norfolk Broads.
Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are taking a break far far away from the hot, crowded beaches of Florida. College kids might get all excited about beer benders and late nights, but K&K are having an altogether more mature spring break experience. The pair jetted off to the tranquil waterways of Norfolk in England. They’re taking a break from Kunis’s busy filming schedule. They’re visiting the village of Wroxham, taking boating trips and touring the countryside. That sounds like a pleasant little break from the hectic L.A. lifestyle that the couple have been used to.
A source told The Sun newspaper: “Ashton thinks it will be a great experience. They’ve got no qualms about staying on a boat. They won’t exactly be roughing it.”
No, they certainly won't. But it’s not all fun and games. In fact, the trip was only possible, because it’s somewhat work-related. According to The Telegraph, Kunis was shooting her latest film Jupiter Ascending in the vicinity. Apparently, once they had a free minute, the pair decided to take advantage of the already paid travel costs. Ah, to be young and in love! Even the weather in Norfolk seems to be on their side and is forecasts predict sun all throughout next week.

Ashton Kutcher is yet to post a single tweet about new girlfriend Mila Kunis, and certainly no pictures.
Remember when Ashton Kutcher tweeted a picture of his ex-wife Demi Moore bending over in the house? Life was great for Kutcher, journalists called him not just an actor, but a social media guru. He had fame, fortune, business savvy and, well, Demi Moore, who seemed to 'get' the whole 'connecting with fans' over Twitter thing.
But Ashton and Demi are no more, and the actor's new squeeze Mila Kunis is a little less forthcoming with social media. A friend of the jOBS star tells the Chicago Sun-Times that he's now paying the price for his internet presence. "Both he and Demi just put too much out there and then had to pay the price for tweeting all those personal photos and things like that," said the source.
The crux of the argument is essentially, how can a man who was more than happy to let everyone take a look inside his life now preach intense privacy? "Mila is so private, and she made Ashton realize that when it comes to the public or the press you simply do not have to respond to personal questions - of any kind," said the insider, adding, "He [Ashton] was in the forefront of realizing the power of social media and things like Twitter, but he unfortunately didn't just use them to build his professional brand, he allowed his personal life to be showcased there as well."

Like Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, this film shows the overpowering strength of Disney and producer Joe Roth, as they once again bury a gifted filmmaker and cast in an effects extravaganza that's strong on visuals but short on story. There are glimpses of Raimi's genius here and there, most notably in his eye-catching use of 3D. And the actors manage to inject a bit of spark into their family-friendly characters. But the plot and the relentlessly simplistic tone will only please children or undemanding adults.
At least it looks amazing. And like the 1939 classic The Wizard of Oz, the film opens in black and white with a Kansas-set prologue, where the womanising conman Oscar (Franco) performs as the flashy magician Oz. Chased into a hot-air balloon by an angry husband, he is engulfed by a tornado and drops into the colourful land of Oz, where people are looking for a messianic wizard named Oz to save them from the witch who murdered their king. But which witch is the wicked one? Oscar first meets the naive Theodora (Kunis), who hasn't yet decided if she'll be evil or not, then her big sister Evanora (Weisz), the steely interim ruler, and then the too-good Glinda (Williams). And even though he's not a real wizard, he might have some tricks up his sleeve that can help.
The film mixes ideas from L Frank Baum's stories with references to the iconic 1939 film, plus much more epic landscapes of Oz recreated with eye-popping digital trickery. On the other hand, the plot is formulaic and predictable, with characters who are only superficially complex and are far too obvious in the way they interact, badly underestimating the sophistication of even very young children in the audience. But the real problem is that the film is focussed on visual spectacle rather than endearing characters. The sidekicks this time are a slightly creepy-looking flying monkey (Braff) and a feisty china doll (King), both rendered with elaborate motion-capture effects that never quite seem to be there on the set with the actors.

After her break-out role in That '70s Show, Ukraine-born actress Mila Kunis has built a remarkably varied career, voicing Meg in Family Guy and starring in Seth MacFarlane's Ted, while also trying her hand at action (The Book of Eli) and serious drama (Black Swan). Now she's bravely taking on the iconic character of the Wicked Witch of the West from The Wizard of Oz in the prequel Oz the Great and Powerful...
You usually play glamorous, sexy characters. How did it feel to be the ugly duckling for a change?
It was incredibly freeing. And it was the first time in my life where putting on a costume really did change the way I played the character. So much of that had to do with the contact lenses: they were hand-painted and the pupils didn't dilate, so my vision was very narrow. "I can't see you and you can't see me, so I can do whatever I want!" So it kind of allowed me to explore and have fun without worrying what people thought. It was great! Also, the second you're in a corset you end up walking differently. And all three witches [alongside Michelle Williams and Rachel Weisz] wore heels, so we had to run in heels and do stunts in heels, which also changes the way you hold yourself. And that in its own right helps you figure your character out.
Were you influenced by Margaret Hamilton's memorable performance in the 1939 movie?
The truth is that no, I didn't want to imitate or do anything that would take away from the iconic character that was created so wonderfully and beautifully and will remain so iconic. What I was given was the gift of a back-story - the origin of the character - and humanising her in a way. I mean it's very simple: it's just a girl who gets her heart broken, doesn't know how to deal with pain, takes the easy way out, numbs the pain and has an emotional transformation that just so happens to be mirrored with a physical one. And the second she became human to me is when it made sense. Everything else was kind of secondary. She's a woman scorned who just so happens to know how to fly. I would never dare try to emulate something that's so beyond iconic.

Olly Murs got more than he bargained for during his appearance on Graham Norton's chat show.
Graham Norton well and truly embarrasses Olly Murs on the latest episode of his chat show, set to air tonight (March 1, 2013), revealing the pop-star's crush on Mila Kunis - as you may have guessed by now, Hollywood actress Mila was sitting just inches away. Prankster Norton read out tweets that Murs had written about the 'Oz: The Great And Powerful' actress, leaving the singer red-faced.
Murs has long tweeted of his liking for Mila, though Norton read out a few select cringe-worthy posts on his show. Olly had once selected the actress as the woman he would "most like to have kids with," much to the audience's delight. Apologising, Murs said, "I never thought in my wildest dreams that I would actually meet her," though the cheeky-chappy added, "Olly and Mila has a great ring to it!" Mila - who is in the UK promoting Sam Raimi's Wizard of Oz prequel - took everything in good humour, graciously replying, "This is so flattering".
It's certainly an all-star line-up on tonight's show, with Kunis and Murs being joined by Skyfall actress Dame Judi Dench and Side Effects star Jude Law. As musical guest, Olly will be performing his track 'Army of Two.'

From That 70’s show, to Demi Moore, to divorce, to dating That 70s Show co-star Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher has never been far from the headlines. It’s the acting string to his bow that has been under the spotlight recently, and the 35-year-old has been talking to Esquire about that part of his life.
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis watch the LA Lakers vs. Phoenix Suns at the Staples Center
Continue reading: Ashton Kutcher Knows The Films He’s Done That “Suck”
The likes of Will Ferrell, Rebel Wilson and Paul Stanley were also in attendance the Lakers match last night at the Staples Center in Los Angeles (February 12, 2013), but there were only two celebrities in the eyes of everybody there - Ashton Kutcher and girlfriend Mila Kunis. Much has been made of the ease with which Kutcher has moved from his marriage with Hollywood actress Demi Moore - they divorced after he cheated on her, remember - in comparison to his ex's apparent struggles with depression and substances.
As always, we'll need to sift through a vast number of sequels and remakes to find something original next year. But here are a few things worth looking forward to. Of course, release dates are subject to change...

Demi Moore received a nice little package on her doormat this week, though it probably wasn’t the Christmas present she was expecting. More than a year after they separated, Moore and ex-husband Ashton Kutcher will finally separate after the Two and a Half Men star filed papers in Los Angeles County Superior Court yesterday.
Kutcher – who is now dating Mila Kunis – cites irreconcilable differences and is not seeking any spousal support from his ex. The filing comes a couple of weeks after Moore was spotted partying at Miami’s Art Basel, with Lenny Kravitz, among others. The personal drama between Kutcher and his wife began around a year ago, when they announced they were splitting amid allegations that the actor had cheated. “As a woman, a mother and a wife there are certain values and vows that I hold sacred, and it is in this spirit that I have chosen to move forward with my life,” Moore said at the time. Unfortunately for her, moving forward meant visits to hospital and being cut off from her three daughters, Rumer, Scout and Tallulah, according to the New York Daily News.
It could be a pretty rough year for Moore, given that Kutcher has hired the pit-bull divorce attorney Laura Wasser. She has previously handled high net worth dissolutions for the likes of Kim Kardashian, Stevie Wonder, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey and Heidi Klum.
The Hollywood hacker who leaked photos of Scarlett Johansson and Mila Kunis is now finding that what he presumably thought was nothing much more than an amusing prank and a brief shot at a quick buck, is something all the more serious.
E! Online reports that Christopher Chaney, a man who had managed to hack into the phones and steal private pictures of more than 50 celebrities, has been sentenced to 10 years in prison and ordered to pay $66,179 in restitution. Hope those pictures were worth it, Christopher. During the court case, which was presided over by US district judge S. James Otero, it also emerged that the hacker had disturbingly managed to get into two non-celebrity phones as well, suggesting that this obsession was a little darker than first thought.
Chaney was originally arrested last October in what was dubbed Operation Hackerazzi, part of an FBI investigation into phone hacking scandals. In court he was told that he had a “callous disregard for victims”. He has previously gone on record as apologizing, saying it "was probably one of the worst invasions of privacy someone could experience." However his apologies have gone unnoticed, and he could have had it a lot worse, with wide reports suggesting he could have gone to jail for up to 60 years.
After more than a year apart, Demi Moore still hasn't proceeded with her divorce papers from former love Ashton Kutcher, and according to a number of sources the reason why is because Demi is trying to punish Ashton.
The Inquisitr is but one of the outlets reporting that Demi, playing the role of the woman scorned, is deliberately refusing to further the divorce between herself and Ashton to spite him and his new flame, his former That 70's Show co-star Mila Kunis.
RealityTV Magazine is another who has reported that Demi is being deliberate in her delaying of the divorce, saying that each time the case moves forward, Moore “throws up another objection or demand.”
Continue reading: Demi Moore Divorce Delays Apparently Punishment For Ashton?
Ashton Kutcher might be dating his former co-star Mila Kunis, but his estranged wife, Demi Moore (the one he cheated on…) isn’t about to give the guy the quickie divorce he might be hoping for. And frankly, who can blame her? According to RadarOnline, Demi is seriously toying with Ashton’s patience and dragging out divorce proceedings as much as possible. Sadly for Demi, though, it looks as though her behaviour has lost her the support of her children, who have sided with Kutcher in the drama.
A close source reportedly told Radar “Demi has instructed her attorneys to delay negotiations as much as possible. The main issue they have been fighting over has been the division of assets and the monetary settlement, but it's now gotten to the point where Ashton is willing to cave in to all of Demi's demands just to reach a settlement.” It’s understandable that Demi wants to make life tricky for Ashton; she must be mad that he’s managed to move on so quickly but is it really worth her risking her relationship with her kids?
According to the source, “"Rumer, Scout and Tallulah have all remained close to Ashton and they have completely come down on his side. Rumer especially is really annoyed at her mother for dragging things out and thinks she is behaving like a total b*tch.” Ouch. “It’s a classic case of a woman scorned,” said the source and we’re inclined to agree.
Oscar Diggs is a magician in a circus in Kansas who has about as much moral fibre as he has accomplishments to his name; that being none whatsoever. However, all that changes when he is magically transported to the land of Oz after his hot air balloon gets caught in a ferocious storm. He is about to have his ethics and his trickery put to the test after initially seeing the colourful and sparkling new world as a way of gaining the fortune he so longs for. Things change when he meets three beautiful witches Theodora, Evanora and Glinda who doubt his so-called magical powers are genuine but do believe he could still be great and powerful like the rest of Oz believe him to be if he saved the land from the wicked witch and became the righteous man he truly ought to be.
This vibrant Disney adventure has been adapted by director Sam Raimi ('The Evil Dead', the 'Spider-Man' trilogy) and screenwriters Mitchell Kapner ('Romeo Must Die', 'The Whole Ten Yards') and David Lindsay-Abaire ('Robots', 'Inkheart', 'Rise of the Guardians'). It has been based on the 1900 novel 'The Wonderful Wizard of Oz' by L. Frank Baum and serves as the prequel to the 1939 movie 'The Wizard of Oz'. Due for release on March 8th 2013.
Directed by: Sam Raimi

The Jedis have spoken, and it's Anna Kendrick who they want as Princess Leia in Star Wars Episode 7, the first of the movies in the new Disney franchise. The film should hit theaters in 2015 and all eyes are turning to the forthcoming casting process to see who will snag the major roles.
It's likely that all the parts will be up for grabs, with Disney looking to provide a new take on the franchise - a new era. In a poll run by E! Online, fans weighed in on who they'd like to see take up the role of Princess Leia, the twin sister of Luke Skywalker. Mila Kunis, Anne Hathaway, Rachel McAdams and The Hunger Games actress Jennifer Lawrence all scored admirably, though there was one overall winner: Anna Kendrick. We're guessing it may have something to do with Kendrick's likeness to previous Leia actress Carrie Fisher. Oscar nominated Kendrick rose to prominence in the Twilight films, though won acclaim for her turns in the George Clooney-starring Up In The Air and comedy 50/50, with Seth Rogen. Her schedule looks pretty clear for the next couple of years, though she's set to begin work on comedy-drama Drinking Buddies, set for a 2013 release.
A weekend poll on Broadway.com saw Aaron Tveit the clear choice to play Luke Skywalker in the new movies. The Ghost Town actor took a stonking 25% of the vote.

Reports are 'rife' this week that Demi Moore has had just about enough of Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis' public displays of affection. The new couple have been spotted lunching in Los Angeles and wistfully wandering around Central Park arm-in-arm. Pretty shocking for two whipper snappers in a relationship.
Nevertheless, the good people at - er - People magazine claim Demi Moore hasn't fully recovered from her meltdown that she suffered after Kutcher's cheating scandal last year. She will mark her 50th birthday on November 11, 2012 (she's 21 years older than Kunis) and is reportedly still struggling with weight issues. A source tells the magazine in this week's cover story, "Her friends aren't convinced she's all better," with another friend revealing that she's both "jealous and frustrated" by Ashton's new romance. It begs the question, is Moore really that bothered? Sure she's had a rough year, though she's still got Hollywood credibility (her recent turn in the excellent 'Margin Call' saw Demi back to her best) and no doubt has decent scripts still coming through the post. Ashton just makes bad films. And gets paid millions for a bad television program. Another source maintained the actress was actually doing pretty well, "As hard as it has been, despite the depression of going through a divorce, she came through it."
Moore will next star in the drama 'Very Good Girls', directed by Oscar nominated writer and producer Naomi Foner. The film boasts an intriguing looking cast, comprising of Dakota Fanning, Elizabeth Olsen among others.
After being named Sexiest Woman Alive, Mila Kunis’ interview with Esquire - the mag that handed her the title - shows a few different sides of her personality, all of which undoubtedly led to her being #1 in the magazine’s sexy list, beating out last year’s winner, Rihanna.
"What I do and who I am are two different things. And they always will be," she said in her interview. "What happens with people is they lose sight of who they are, and they become either who they want to be or who they are perceived to be." Philosophical stuff. Kunis, 29, is known for her role on That '70s Show and films like Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Black Swan, Friends with Benefits and Ted. She also shows her comic prowess by providing the voice of Meg on Family Guy. "I think that if I bought into the hype, I would lose all sight of who I am, and so much of who I am is what my parents went through and instilled in me. And I never want to lose that. Ever. Because I would be so disappointed if I didn't make them proud," she added.
Mila is also one of the more politically attuned celebrities, although in her interview she rejects the label of celeb, preferring instead: “working actress”. Either way, she doesn’t ignore contemporary politics: “The way that Republicans attack women is so offensive to me,” she explains. “And the way they talk about religion is offensive. I may not be a practicing Jew, but why we gotta talk about Jesus all the time? And it's baffling to me how a poor person in Georgia can say, "I'm a Republican." Why?”
Esquire market themselves, as "Style and Substance" which is perhaps why their sexiest woman alive for 2012 is Mila Kunis. And Mila Kunis truly embodies that phrase- style and substance.
Known primarily for roles in comedy, Kunis has starred in 'That 70s Show' playing a spoiled teenager, voicing Meg on Family Guy and most recently films such as Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Friends With Benefits, her genuine wit and choice of roles is one marker in many ways that she's more than just a pretty face. She has also taken on far darker roles in The Book of Eli and the instant modern classic, Black Swan.
Kunis has a unique outlook on life, or at least, unique for Hollywood. Her childhood upbringing in the Ukraine, where she lived until the age of 7, and her Ukrainian parents, she feels have a lot to do with how down to earth and centred she is. In an interview with Style Magazine she said "the rules I followed as a kid and as a teenager were that of European parents... [were] very respectful. There was no 'I want'; no slamming doors. There was a line of respect my parents taught me and there is a work ethic that they instilled in me at a very young age." She and her family are all very politically aware and she has been very outspoken in her support of the Democratic party.

It’s official: Mila Kunis is the Sexiest Woman Alive after Esquire handed her the prestigious mantle, USA Today reports.
Esquire describes Kunis as "the most beautiful, opinionated, talkative, and funny movie star that we've all known since she was nine." Born in Ukraine, the 29 year-old is known for myriad roles, including Jackie from That '70s Show, her supporting role in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, her part in Black Swan, the voice of Meg on Family Guy, and her starring role alongside Justin Timberlake in Friends with Benefits. In addition to being an accomplished thespian, Kunis wont shy away from real life, hard-hitting political issues: "The way that Republicans attack women is so offensive to me,” she explained in her interview for Esquire. “And the way they talk about religion is offensive. I may not be a practicing Jew, but why we gotta talk about Jesus all the time? And it's baffling to me how a poor person in Georgia can say, 'I'm a Republican.' Why?"
Her acting prowess, comedic style in Family Guy and wider knowledge of contemporary matters is probably what enamoured the judges, and ultimately led to her being named Sexiest Woman. Well, that and the fact that she’s stunning. Still, it’s nice to see a role model with a sensible head on their shoulders. Mila’s next project is the Spring release of Oz: The Great and Powerful.
The Oscars is the biggest annual event in western film culture, perhaps matched only by the Cannes Film Festival. Winning an Oscar is a director's, actor's or writer's proudest moment and one that will ensure career longevity and continued success. So, to host the Oscars is a pretty big deal- is Seth Macfarlane, a squat comedy writer whose shows have been censored and even banned in the past the right man for the role? And, if he's not, who may have been a better choice?
Seth MacFarlane is the creative mind behind the animated comedy tour-de-force Family Guy, as well as American Dad and The Cleveland show. He branched his career out further this year writing, directing and starring in the movie “Ted”.
However, MacFarlane had a slight mishap when hosting the Emmys this year, in which he couldn't find the mic. If he has a similar slip-up this year, the award directors may be lamenting not opting for someone else. But who else could step up to the mark? Judging on entertainment value and quality The Muppets would have been an excellent choice, or even the man responsible for bringing them vehemently back to life earlier this year, Jason Segel. Neil Patrick Harris is another all-rounder who would be great for the job, or even Mila Kunis.

But separating Ted and John is more difficult than it looks.

But 27 years later, it's more of a nightmare as Ted begins to get in the way of his 4 year long relationship with Lori. Both John and Ted find it difficult to part with each other after so long - will John's love for Lori compromise his friendship with Ted or will his love for Ted affect his relationship with Lori?

After a humiliating breakup, Dylan (Timberlake) meets with high-achieving headhunter Jamie (Kunis) about a new job. Friendship blossoms, and since Jamie is emotionally damaged after a recent split and Dylan is emotionally unavailable, they decide to sleep together without any deeper attachment.
Meanwhile, they get increasingly involved in each others' lives, most notably as Dylan and his sister (Elfman) cope with their senile father (Jenkins). Of course, the main question is whether Dylan and Jamie can remain friends even if they have sex.

When the power goes off in their home, the Griffin clan ask dad Peter to regale them with a story (the talking dog Brian had suggested they all read). What he offers is a note for note ripoff of the original Star Wars film, with various figures from the Family Guy universe filling the roles from the 1977 blockbuster. Horny neighbor Glen Quagmire is C-3PO, deli owner Cleveland Brown in R2D2, megalomaniacal baby Stewie is evil Darth Vadar, Quahog mayor Adam West is Grand Moff Tarkin, mom Lois is Princess Leia, and son Chris is Luke Skywalker. With Peter playing Han Solo, Brian as Chewbacca, and old pervert Herbert as Obi-Wan, we get all the sci-fi operatics -- stolen plans, the daring rescue by our heroes, and the last act stand-off against the Death Star.
