Take a tip from teenagers this Valentine’s Day and do it up big. Everything’s a grand gesture when you’re young and these teen movies prove that young love trumps all. So get out there and do something nice for your significant other – and we don’t just mean getting tickets to the Fifty Shades of Grey movie.
1. Say Anything
The now-iconic boombox gesture. Except these days it would probably involve holding up an iPhone or something.
2. The Fault In Our Stars
Augustus used his wish to give Hazel her dream trip to Amsterdam. Sigh…
3. 10 Things I Hate About You
The public singing and dancing. How could you resist?
Edward would watch Bella as she slept (which definitely sounds creepy now that we think about it) and he took her flying through the woods. Unconventional romance, to be sure, but she swooned nonetheless.
5. Cruel Intentions
When a bad boy reveals his sensitive side to you, you know it’s love.
6. A Walk to Remember
He married her and fulfilled her dying wish, doesn’t get more grand than that.
7. Moonrise Kingdom
What’s more romantic than running away together?
8. Romeo + Juliet
The classic tale of star-crossed lovers. They basically disown their families to be together. They also die in the end but let’s just pretend it all worked out.
9. Save the Last Dance
Being a good dancer: hot. Showing up to your girl's dance audition because you know how important it is to her: even hotter.
10. The Perks of Being a Wallflower
We kind of wish people still exchanged mixtapes like Charlie and Sam.
11. The Notebook
Noah climbs a Ferris wheel just to ask Allie out. Yeah, he's kind of insane...but in the most romantic way.
Juno fills Paulie Bleeker's mailbox with his favorite orange Tic Tacs. Even sassy Juno can be sweet.

"I never know how to play that because I'm in the public eye and I don't know whether to just thrust this child into the public eye... People said that the name was Violet, which is a very pretty name, but that's Ben Affleck's daughter's name. We'd never steal another celebrity's baby name, so we're going with Shiloh! No... We have a name, but I don't want to say it in, like, a media context. I tell everyone I meet, so it'll come out... It's a family name."
New dad Ryan Reynolds jokes about his baby daughter's name, which has yet to be officially announced. The actor and his wife, Blake Lively, welcomed their first child in December (14).
Jennifer Lopez's sexy onscreen lover Ryan Guzman has stripped off to help raise awareness about cancer for a new U.K. magazine spread. The Boy Next Door star, 27, posed nude in a bed for Cosmopolitan U.K. photographer James White, but preserved his modesty by using a linen sheet to cover his loins.
In the accompanying interview, Guzman admits he didn't hesitate to take part in the shoot as his own family has been touched by the deadly disease.
He says, "I lost my grandfather to cancer when I was 13. It's affected my life and I'll do everything I can to back cancer research."
Previous centerfold models for the Cancer Research U.K. charity shoot include Homeland's Diego Klattenhoff, Revenge actor Barry Sloane and model Tyson Beckford.
Actors Emma Roberts and Dave Franco have been cast to star in the big screen adaptation of young adult novel Nerve. The American Horror Story star will portray an innocent girl who breaks out of her shell by playing an online game of truth-or-dare called Nerve, with a sexy and mysterious man, played by Franco.
In the thriller based on the popular book by Jeanne Ryan, the game's stakes grow increasingly higher as she finds herself in life-threatening situations.
American Horror Story executive producer Jessica Sharzer penned the screenplay, while filmmakers Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, who directed hit online dating documentary Catfish, will direct the project.
It will mark the third time Roberts has co-starred with a Franco - she starred alongside Dave's older brother James in his film Palo Alto, as well as new gay rights drama I Am Michael, which debuts at the Sundance Film Festival on Thursday (29Jan15).
Veteran actor James Caan has filed for divorce from his fourth wife Linda, for the third time in their 19-year marriage. The Godfather star wed Linda Stokes in 1996, but their relationship hit a rough patch in 2005, when Caan initially moved to end the union. They reconciled, only for the actor to again file for divorce in 2009.
Now Caan has filed court papers once more, and he is seeking joint custody of the couple's youngest son, 16-year-old Jacob, according to TMZ.com.
The Caans are also parents to James, 19.
The 74 year old also has three other children from previous unions, including Hawaii Five-0 actor Scott Caan, from his second marriage to Sheila Marie Ryan.
Pop star Justin Bieber is set to be publicly ridiculed by a host of comedians during an upcoming U.S. TV roast.
The Baby hitmaker will become the butt of all jokes at the next Comedy Central Roast, which will tape on 7 March (15). Comedians, who have yet to be announced, are expected to poke fun at a range of topics including his legal troubles, run-ins with the police and recent Calvin Klein campaign.
A representative from the network tells Ryanseacrest.com, "Justin has been asking us for years to roast him so we kept telling him to create some more material and we're thrilled he listened."
Bieber adds in a series of tweets, "Finally after all that hard work for my 21st bday it's happening. Thanks Ryan Seacrest & Comedy Central for the announcement. Let's do it... LOL (laugh out loud) #BieberRoast." The roast will be taped a week after Bieber turns 21 on 1 March (15).
James Franco, Charlie Sheen and late comedienne Joan Rivers have previously been roasted by Comedy Central in the past.
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have become first-time parents.
The 27-year-old actress delivered the couple's baby just before the New Year, a little earlier than expected, in New York. Representatives for the couple have yet to confirm the happy news, first reported by PageSix.com. Details of the baby's sex and name have not been released.
Lively announced her pregnancy on her lifestyle website, Preserve, and Reynolds has been vocal about his excitement. He told People magazine last year (14), "I’m just excited about having a buddy. For a lot of new dads, you tend to dwell on the mistakes you don’t want to make. I’m at that stage still where I’m focused primarily on being open and understanding and leaving a lot of room for error."
Winona Ryder and director Edgar Wright will be among the star-studded panel judging the competition at next year's (15) Sundance Film Festival. Ryder and Wright, along with True Detective director Cary Fukunaga, will preside over the U.S. Dramatic Jury competition, while Interstellar co-writer Jonathan Nolan and actress/writer Brit Marling are part of the jury for the Alfred P. Sloan Feature Film Prize, which recognises science in film.
The jury members will vote on a number of films featuring stars including Viola Davis, James Franco, Jennifer Lopez, Ewan McGregor, Ryan Reynolds and Jesse Eisenberg.
The annual festival, which was founded by Robert Redford, runs from 22 January to 1 February (15) in Utah.
The Oscars are supposed to be a barometer for greatness in the movie industry, but sometimes the Academy just misses the mark. Think about it: Three Six Mafia has an Oscar, but Leonardo DiCaprio does not. Snubs inevitably happen every year and some are more egregious than others. As we prepare for the next batch of nominations, let us reflect on some of the biggest snubs that still have us scratching our heads.
1. Leonardo DiCaptio in The Departed
Leo has been nominated a lot, we know this, but he was at his best in this Martin Scorsese flick. It still pains us that this wasn’t his year.
2. Leonardo DiCaprio in Revolutionary Road
We thought Leo/Kate Winslet reunion would equal Oscar magic. But alas, it was not to be.
3. Leonardo DiCaprio in Catch Me If You Can
We still love this movie and think he was fantastic as con man Frank Abagnale Jr. Technically he played more than character, as Frank faked his way into becoming an airline pilot, a doctor and a lawyer.
4. Leonardo DiCaprio in The Aviator
Last Leo one, we promise. But man did he do a good job playing Howard Hughes’ descent into madness.
5. Brokeback Mountain
With the exception of Ang Lee winning for Best Director, Brokeback Mountain got completely shut out of the Oscars. Crash beat it for Best Picture in an upset, and Heath Ledger, Jake Gyllenhaal and Michelle Williams all inexplicably lost in their categories despite delivering amazing performances.
6. Alfred Hitchcock
Can you believe the Master of Suspense never won an Oscar for directing? Despite all of his directing techniques that are now famous, poor Hitch never got Oscar recognition. Couldn’t they have at least given him the Best Cameos in All His Films award?
7. James Dean
We expect that if James Dean had lived longer than his young 24 years, he would have taken home Oscar gold. But the impressive trifecta of films he made during his much-too-short career (A Rebel Without a Cause, East of Eden and Giant) are enough to make us sad he never won.
8. Saving Private Ryan
This Steven Spielberg wartime epic starring Tom Hanks was beat out for Best Picture by Shakespeare in Love. Rumblings have indicated power producer Harvey Weinstein’s purse strings – rather than the film’s merit - are what actually got Shakespeare the gold.
9. Marilyn Monroe
The iconic bombshell never got to make a breathy Oscar acceptance speech. She was probably most deserving for her part in Some Like It Hot, but it just wasn't in the cards.
10. Amy Adams
Doesn’t it seem like she gets nominated every year? She’s like the female Leonardo DiCaprio at this point. She was great in The Fighter and she was our favorite part of American Hustle last year. Such a shame.
11. Robert Redford
Redford, aka the Brad Pitt before Brad Pitt, has never won an Oscar for acting. He nabbed one in 1981 for directing Ordinary People and got a Lifetime Achievement award in 2002, but the founder of the Sundance Film Festival was never acknowledged for the talent that made him famous.
12. Paul Newman for The Hustler
It took Paul Newman way too long to claim his Oscar glory. He was notoriously snubbed all throughout his prime years – most notably for The Hustler in 1962. The Academy finally gave him an honorary award in 1986 and then a Best Actor Oscar in 1987 for his role in the subpar sequel to The Hustler - The Color of Money.
13. Citizen Kane
This film has been number one on so many AFI Greatest Movies of All Time lists that we kind of just assumed it had won the Oscar for Best Picture. Not so. The Orson Welles masterpiece was beat out by How Green Was My Valley, a movie about a Welsh mining village.
14. Michael Fassbender in Shame
When you put aside the jokes about "best performance by a penis in a movie," you’ll realize that Fassbender actually turns in an Oscar-worthy performance in Shame (clothed or unclothed). We’ll give him time though – we think a statuette is in his future.
15. Ewan McGregor
Ewan (or as we like to call him: every straight man’s mancrush) has turned in some brilliant work over the years – like his roles in Beginners and The Impossible. But sadly it seems it wasn’t enough to catch the Academy’s attention.
16. Johnny Depp
Johnny Depp does not have an Oscar. We repeat: Johnny Depp does not have an Oscar. How can the guy who played iconic characters in Edward Scissorhands, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Finding Neverland be lacking a trophy, you ask? It’s a mystery for the ages.
17. Jessica Chastain
Remember when Jessica Chastain had like a million movies come out in 2011? In luckier years, we think at least ONE of those would have gotten her a win. Maybe 2015 will be her year.
18. Keira Knightley in Pride & Prejudice
Reese Witherspoon beat her out that year for Walk the Line, but Keira would have had our vote for her pitch perfect portrayal of Jane Austen heroine Elizabeth Bennett.
Talk about a beautifully made film. It even won the Golden Globe for Best Drama that year, which is usually a sign that an Oscar imminent. Nope. No Country for Old Men took it instead. Guess nothing beats a Coen Brothers film with an ambiguous ending.
20. Short Term 12
If you've seen this gem of an indie movie starring a riveting Brie Larson, you'll understand why this was a major snub. It was one of the best movies of 2013, but presumably because it was so small, it didn't get any awards love. Travesty.
21. Mary Elizabeth Winstead in Smashed
Another small movie, but a huge Oscar-worthy performance by Winstead as a young wife coming to terms with sobriety. Or at least worthy of a nomination. Pay better attention, Academy!
