  • Are Christian Bale And Leonardo DiCaprio Teaming Up For A New Movie?
    By: Shannon Houston Jul 16, 2014
    Getty Images/Getty Images A project involving Christian Bale and Leonardo DiCaprio sounds almost too good to be true. And in a way, it is.  According to Variety, Bale is currently in the final stages of signing on to work with DiCaprio in the film adaptation of Travis McGee's The Deep Blue Goodbye. DiCaprio was initially expected to star in the movie (back when we first heard about it in 2010), but now he's on the team of producers (with Appian Way) while Bale is in talks to take the lead role. This movie has been a long time coming, but it sounds like it's finally headed for production. And while it's a bit disappointing that we won't get to see the two great stars on screen together, their names on the project—along with director James Mangold (Walk The Line, The Wolverine, and Girl, Interrupted)—give us high hopes.

  • Kendall Jenner Strips Down For 'Love' Magazine
    By: Shannon Houston Jul 16, 2014
    WENN/Judy Eddy Kendall Jenner is stripping down once again for the love of fashion. The young model shared a shot from her Love magazine shoot, and she's looking pretty wet and wild in a bustier-style bra and some sexy black underwear and leggings. Considering how tame (and, well, boring) her cover was, this is somewhat unexpected:  Instagram/kendalljenner Clearly, she's all grown up now. Follow @Hollywood_com Follow @shannonmhouston //

Sorry to be harsh, but—really—you must follow Retta on Twitter!

We have proof below that she is truly the GOAT. 1. She calls out horrifying cliches on House of Cards.

  • 5 Hilarious NSFW Aziz Ansari Moments
    By: Shannon Houston Jul 14, 2014
    Getty Images/Jason Kempin The man, the legend, the most adorable, foul-mouthed stand-up comedian ever—Aziz Ansari has brought us so much joy over the years. He may be best known for his role as Tom Haverford on Parks and Recreation, but those of us who watch his stand-up material know that there's a whole other, magnificent side to him.Here are a few of his best, NSFW moments ever. 1. His Kanye West stories will never cease to amaze us: 2. Is child molestation ever funny? Only in Ansari's world: 3. Justin Bieber is a lot more gangsta than we previously thought. Thanks Aziz, for bringing this dark side of him to our attention: 4. Who knew a harmless grapefruit could inspire so much naughty language?  5. The only thing better than his Yeezy stories, are his R. Kelly stories. And nothing's more NSFW than an R. Kelly concert story: Follow @Hollywood_com Follow @shannonmhouston //
  • 5 Reasons Why Pete Campbell Is Still King
    By: Shannon Houston Jul 10, 2014
    The Emmy Award nominations incited much Twitter rage today, and in the midst of all the hashtags for Tatiana Maslany and Mads Mikkelsen, people seemed to have forgotten about THE Vincent Kartheiser. While Mad Men and Jon Hamm were both [unsurprisingly] nominated, Kartheiser continues to be snubbed for his brilliant performance as the incomparable Pete Campbell. But you know what? He's still KING. 1. Still heralded as his greatest moment, ever: 2. Sure, every man may be a type and may have a type. But when this... lady of the night captured Campbell's "type" it was everything: 3. The audio is ridiculous, but the clip never gets old: 4. Greatest. Middle-aged man. Fist fight. Ever (sure, this is really Lane Pryce's finest hour, but still): 5. Pete + Janis Joplin = all you need in life. Follow @Hollywood_com Follow @shannonmhouston //
  • 10 People Who Are Really Mad At The Emmy Nominations
    By: Shannon Houston Jul 10, 2014
    NBC Think you're mad about this morning's Emmy Awards nominations? Not as mad as these folks! #CloneClub #Fannibals #EmmySnubs and other angry hashtags took over Twitter and it was glorious.  1. An excellent suggestion... Someone needs to send in Tatiana Maslany’s episodes next year in an HBO folder. — Tim Goodman (@BastardMachine) July 10, 2014 2. The #Fannibals got cray. @paste_tv Emmys deserve to be eaten then. Not sure how much better Hannibal needs to be to get noticed. — Jo (@Tegan_Jovanka) July 10, 2014 3. In which Tatiany Maslany becomes the new Kanye West. I honestly feel bad for her! She should Kanye someone's award! Like seriously! #EmmyNoms #TatianaMaslany — OITNB | Beyond (@OITNB_Beyond) July 10, 2014 4. Sometimes, it just hurts. @AmyTVGal So many feelings--mostly frustration... — Mark Rozeman (@Mrozema) July 10, 2014 5. Actually, "stain on the apron" may be the greatest insult of all time. Don't fret, #Fannibals! Awards don't determine the success of a show, the fans do. The Emmys are just a stain on the apron. — Hugh Dancy News (@hughdancynews) July 10, 2014 6. For those of you on #TeamFarmiga and who cares about the emmys @VeraFarmiga is the QUEEN and Norma is craziest mom and beautiful I've seen in my life — claudia (@bullock_Farmiga) July 10, 2014 7. The guy who played Pastor Tim on The Americans is super-pissed. Right on: No nominations for #TheAmericans actors?! Seriously?? Ridiculously huge snub. PARTICULARLY the brilliant @MatthewRhys #EmmyNoms #Emmys2014 — Kelly AuCoin (@bklynblazr) July 10, 2014 8. Wait, there are people NOT watching Orphan Black? If you're wondering why your Twitter feed is blowing up with complaints about Tatiana Maslany getting Emmy-snubbed, watch Orphan Black. — Josh Jackson (@joshjackson) July 10, 2014 9. Who says you can't get all your anger out in 140 characters or less? @JarettSays The #Emmys have failed all audiences, tbh. #NoTatiana #NoEmily #NoGoodWife #NonSense — bruaccioli (@bruaccioli) July 10, 2014 10. Apparently, someone needs to to the #Emmys keys away. Get home safe guys. GO HOME, EMMYS! YOU'RE DRUNK! #EmmyForMaslany Can't believe she was snubbed AGAIN. Emmys are a officially a waste of time #EmmysChat — Rachel (@mindgrape) July 10, 2014 Follow @Hollywood_com Follow @shannonmhouston //
  • Chloë Grace Moretz Is Basically Kristen Stewart In 'The Clouds Of Sils Maria'
    By: Shannon Houston Jul 07, 2014
    IFC Films The Clouds Of Sils Maria cannot get here fast enough. A new, international trailer was just released and we can't help but notice that the actress Chloë Grace Moretz is playing, seems awfully reminiscent of Kristen Stewart, the other young actress starring in the film (check out the 0:53 mark to see what we mean). It's all very meta, which makes sense as the film follows the story of an older actress (played by the incomparable Juliette Binoche) whose personal life begins to mimic her on-screen performance. In other words, this looks amazing: There's no release date yet, but Olivier Assayas' film received great reviews at Cannes Film Festival, so hopefully we can expect it in the States sometime soon.
