Meryl Streep's 'Into the Woods' Look Will Make You Want to Reconsider That Halloween Costume

Walt Disney Studios Walt Disney Studios

We've definitely seen Meryl Streep rock some gray locks before — like that time she turned all fierce ice boss in "The Devil Wears Prada" and when she got the salt-and-pepper treatment for "The Iron Lady" — but for the currently-in-production adaptation of the musical "Into the Woods," she's treading into all new, scraggly mane territory alright.

First of all, is that silver or is it blue? Or is it silver-blue? It's hard to decide. And secondly, would you just get a load of those nails. Yech! Get More »

UPDATE: Emma Watson has turned down "Cinderella," according to a tweet by Marc Graser of Variety. Probably because she wants to do more bad girl things.

- - - - - - - - - - - -

Ever since "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" wrapped up the wildly popular series two years ago, fans and industry insiders alike have been placing bets on which of the franchise's three young stars would go on to have the biggest career in Hollywood. And so far, they've all done okay for themselves. Rupert Grint is making indies and riding around in his ice cream truck while Daniel Radcliffe has appeared in major Broadway shows and offbeat films like the Sundance fave "Kill Your Darlings." And Emma Watson? Get More »

Johnny Depp in "Dark Shadows" Warner Bros.

Disney's 50 Finest: In Order of Awesome

Beauty and the Beast 3D

Just days before the release of "Tangled," Disney shocked the world by announcing the film would be their last fairy tale princess story. But while there was much wailing, another, more positive milestone has been somewhat overlooked: "Tangled" marked the studio's 50th animated feature.

We know what you're thinking: Surely Disney has made more than 50 movies, right? And it's true, they have. But if there's one thing Disney knows even more than animation, it's how to protect their brand, which is why they've designated some of their features to be official classics and others -- like "The Jungle Book 2" or "Pete's Dragon" -- to be, you know, just something they do on the side for giggles and grins.

To celebrate the release of "Beauty and the Beast 3D," we review and rank all 50 official Disney animated features. Get More »

The 15 Sexiest Animated Ladies Ever

In anticipation of the upcoming 3-D release of Disney's "Beauty and the Beast," we've been reminiscing about this gorgeously crafted, beautifully scored work of art and have come to one conclusion: Belle's a hottie.

Don't judge us. Our earliest visions of female beauty are gleaned from the hand-painted pictures of large-eyed, impossibly proportioned princesses. They sing and dance and fall in love with ugly beasts, filling us with unrealistic dreams doomed to die slow deaths. That's the magic of Disney!

Is it healthy to lust after two-dimensional caricatures? Probably not. But are we actually objectifying women if they're not, actually, women? Definitely. So, with that healthy dose of self-awareness, it's time to rate which cartoon babes we'd most like to comic strip.
