The past two years have been pretty special in the career of Jessica Chastain. The ginger babe had been sloughing through the dregs of TV guest spots and charming (but hardly ever seen) indies for ages before being recognized as the little snowflake that she is and thrust into the Cannes spotlight for Terrence Malick's "The Tree of Life." Two years later, she's navigated back-to-back awards seasons as a nominee and the gettin' is officially good. The world is her dainty little oyster.
Greetings from the apocalypse! This was a scary-ass week for my homies in Boston. Why we gotta blow each other up, people? If we keep exploding ourselves all we'll wind up with is Charlton Heston screaming at the Statue of Liberty. Truth. Love, peace and chicken grease, y'all. Now, movies … Get More »
Most of us understand that as we age, it's important to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. Go for a jog (or a "yog" if you're Ron Burgundy) once in a while. Maybe opt for a salad sometimes instead of a few slices of pizza. If you work at a desk, perhaps you make sure you walk around your office for five minutes every hour. Feel that burn.
Then there are others who take that notion to extreme lengths, who hear "maintain a healthy and active lifestyle" and think "lift enough weights every day of my life to tear a horse in half with my bare hands and have a laughing fit in its blood." Get More »
Hey remember way back on Thursday when we told you that Matthew McConaughey is going to star in Christopher Nolan's new sci-fi epic "Interstellar?" Well, it turns out that he's not the only one, as according to Deadline, Oscar winning actress Anne Hathaway is in talks to reunite with her "The Dark Knight Rises" director as McConaughey's co-star.
Are you ready for Catwoman in Space?
Before you get too excited, we should reiterate that there's no deal yet in place, so it's possible this one might fall through. But given Nolan's track record of putting together the smartest blockbusters in Hollywood (see: "Inception") and their working relationship, "Interstellar" would seem to be the perfect follow-up for Hathaway after her award-winning turn in "Les Miserables."

Matthew McConaughey is having a stellar couple of years. After a decade in rom-com hell, the chiseled actor has resurrected his career with eye-opening (and shirt-opening) turns in acclaimed films like "Bernie," "Killer Joe" and "Magic Mike," leading to award season buzz and prompting fans and Hollywood insiders alike to reconsider just what he's capable of.
So how do you top such a stellar run? Apparently, by becoming "Interstellar."
Look, J.J. Abrams just doesn't sleep ya'll.
The "Star Trek Into Darkness" director who's also recently signed on to helm Disney's "Star Wars: Episode VII" may have another star-centric project underway. This time, it's about an international sports figure who
dropped the ball got caught doing some naughty things on his cycling road to victory.
That man, of course, is Lance Armstrong, who's found his name at the tippy top of many sports pages lately (interrupted just briefly by the perplexing Manti T'eo) thanks to his gobsmacking admission to doping on the race course and winning seven consecutive Tour de France titles. Largely considered a hero for his tireless cancer patient support efforts with the Livestrong Foundation (he himself survived testicular cancer before beginning his victory streak) Armstrong's story has confounded the public and gotten J.J. Abrams on board to produce a biopic based upon his life. Get More »

Judd Apatow's new comedy, "This Is 40," presents the many challenges that come with middle age, such as being attractive, having amusing and dedicated friends and wallowing in complete financial stability.
It's not all mundane tedium, though — sometimes you also just go crazy and get high in hotel rooms and caress Megan Fox's pert, twentysomething breasts.
Let's face it — something about being rich and famous kind of slows down the aging process that us regular schmoes have to contend with. Here are a few celebrity types who make 40 look like the new 25.
