PHOTOS: This Is 40 and Effing Hot

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.

Scream Debuts: 9 Big Stars Who Started in Horror

Jennifer Aniston in Leprechaun Trimark Pictures

Not all great cinema stars have the most auspicious beginnings to their lives in celluloid. Some start in commercials, TV, bit parts, background work. Hell, a few even dabble in porn (we're looking at you, Sylvester Stallone).

Ground zero for acting talent, more often than not, is the horror genre. This being Halloween season, we decided to highlight a few mega-talents who jumpstarted their careers in much the same way they entered the world: naked, screaming and covered in blood. Get More »

The Top 50 Music Videos Featuring Movie Stars

Kristen Stewart Music Video
Ever since Michael Jackson and John Landis unleashed "Thriller" in 1983, shaming all that preceded it, the music video has become an art form within itself. It can be a launching pad for your career (Alicia Silverstone), a favor to a boyfriend (Courteney Cox, Evan Rachel Wood), or a way to begin rebuilding a thousand burned bridges (Mickey Rourke).

With the MTV Video Music Awards hitting MTV tomorrow at 8 p.m. ET, we've compiled a list of the 50 best based on a number of factors: creativity of video, quality of actor's performance and, for some, random dancing ability. Our only caveats: no cameos and no soundtracks. The debate begins now. Get More »

Your Favorite Rom-Coms Get Face Swapped

Face Swapped "Pretty Woman" Poster

Remember when we decided to do a few face swaps for "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" photos? Of course you do. They were so hilariously creepy that you will probably never be able to get those images out of your head.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back on the Internet, we've dug up some photos to keep you horrified. Someone decided to give a few rom-com posters a facelift — or two — and swap the faces of the lovable leads.

So if you've ever wondered if Richard Gere could pull off Julia Roberts' iconic hair and thigh-high boots in "Pretty Woman" or if Sarah Jessica Parker is laid-back enough to fill Matthew McConaughey's shoes in "Failure to Launch," the answer is in this imgur photo album, and it's not pretty.

Matthew McConaughey is about to trade his leather thong for a pinstriped suit. We may be guessing about the pinstriped detail, but the "Magic Mike" star has signed on for Martin Scorsese's latest, "The Wolf of Wall Street."

Adapted by Terence Winter (the scribe behind "Boardwalk Empire" and "The Sopranos") from Jordan Belfort's book, the crime drama follows a New York stockbroker who refuses to cooperate in a large securities fraud case involving corruption on Wall Street that has links back to the mob… not that this story has any basis in real life or anything.

Nicole Kidman and Zac Efron Deliver in 'The Paperboy' Trailer

Just like how the 2007 indie film "Hounddog" became synonymously known as "The Dakota Fanning Rape Movie," Lee Daniels' sensationalistic new crime drama "The Paperboy" will most certainly carry the stigma of being the flick where Nicole Kidman pees on Zac Efron.

Now Yahoo! Movies has a trailer for "The Paperboy," which caused quite a stir when it debuted at Cannes earlier this summer, and we can tell already it wasn't because this delivery boy was missing houses. Get More »

GALLERY: Matthew McConaughey Isn't Any Old 'Joe'

With his laid-back attitude and southern charm, Matthew McConaughey lights up the screen in just about every movie he stars in. Whether he's a hired assassin ("Killer Joe"), the owner of a strip club ("Magic Mike") or a ladies' man ("How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days"), we can't take our eyes off of Matthew whenever he appears on screen.

His lack of a shirt in many of his movies (OK, and real life) doesn't hurt either.

So it's about time we give this bongo-loving, free-spirited actor his due and celebrate his talent — but mostly his good looks — in our latest Hot People Looking Hot gallery. Take a look at these photos, and you'll be saying "alright, alright, alright."
