There's nothing to really do when waiting for a train in a subway station. There isn't any cell phone service, and even if you're with friends, the odds that they are ten-minutes-of-straight-conversation-level interesting are sadly low. You might say that being on a subway platform makes for our only real, actual chance to take a break from staring at glowing rectangles all day and "Disconnect." So you people-watch, and sometimes, you notice the ads on the wall — some of which don't even have impromptu sharpie penises drawn on them. Get More »
She's precious, she's tough, she's cool and she's so worth of a Hot People Looking Hot gallery.
We're talking about Paula Patton, the lady who went toe-to-toe with Tom Cruise in "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" and is about to plunge into some existential malaise with the likes of Alexander Skarsgard and Jason Bateman in "Disconnect." And, yeah, she makes it all look like a mission totally possible.
See for yourself with our collection of pics of Paula in movies, magazines and on the red carpet.
Let's face it, most of us have been, as David Lee Roth once so eloquently put it, "Hot For Teacher." And while we adore the earnest and inspirational wisdom of teachers in movies like "Dead Poets Society," "Stand and Deliver" and "Mr. Holland's Opus," that's not what we're talking about here.
If our favorite educators had looked like these 12 big-screen teachers ranked in the gallery below, we would have been happy flunking year after year just to keep watching them draw on the chalkboard.

Look at our friends. Aren't they pretty?
The annual Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue is always packed with gorgeous photos and profiles of the hottest up-and-coming stars, and this year is no different. The three-part cover features 11 of our favorite ladies snapped by high-end photographer Mario Testino in super glam styles.
Oscar nominee/multiple piercee Rooney Mara is sporting a sleek Louise Brooks bob, while "Albert Nobbs" star Mia Wasikowska chills at her feet. Next to them, Jennifer Lawrence is looking fierce in a totally non-Katniss way, while Jessica Chastain is channeling an old school siren. Get More »
My mission this week, which I chose for myself and had no problem accepting, was to Meet. Tom. Cruise.
After a little research, it looked like said mission was totally possible. The cast of "Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol" – Tom included – would be making the rounds at the "Today" show, "Late Show With David Letterman" and, of course, the New York City red carpet premiere.
When I arrived bright and early and freezing cold to "Today," Paula Patton was already there signing autographs and posing for pictures. It was a little more chaotic than usual but she handled it like a champ, though I didn't get anywhere near her to ask for a picture. Get More »

Well, not really -- but wouldn't it be kind of cool if it did? That wouldn't leave you much time to check out our pics from the U.S. premiere of "Mission: Impossible," though! Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes, Paula Patton, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg and several other celebrities infiltrated the "Ghost Protocol" red carpet at New York City's Ziegfeld Theater, ready to face the crowd -- and any impending danger.
Check out one of our final movie premiere galleries of 2011 (whoa!), and prepare for "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol," officially opening on Dec. 21.
There's more to being a spy than sleek bodysuits and cool tech gear (although those are pretty rad, too).
"Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" proves looking good while accomplishing the unthinkable is all part of the job.
Tom Cruise is back as the suave Ethan Hunt and he's joined by the gorgeous Paula Patton, who totally knocks 'em dead (have you seen her green dress?) while, ahem, knocking 'em dead.
With our latest Get the Goods column, looking like a sexy spy is a mission so achievable.
"Light the fuse." So says Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt at the start of "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol," pretty much directly to the audience -- which is another way of announcing, "Yo, this is the FOURTH one, you know what you're getting into here, people."
So just what are we in for? Try a massive prison break, infiltrating the Kremlin, a car chase through a sandstorm, and Hunt's climbing the world's tallest building. Also, explosions, perhaps a fistfight or two. Filling out the IMF team this time around is sizzling hot Paula Patton, ever-hilarious Simon Pegg, and Jeremy Renner as a different kind of hero.

Farewell, 2011. It's been real. We had some laughs. We cried. We met some new people and spent time with old ones and saw plenty of action -- all of it at the movies. (On the screen, silly, not in the back row!)
But 2011 isn't over quite yet, so we're taking one final look back at some of the actors, characters and films that we enjoyed most this year. Vote for your favorites -- starting with 2011's hottest babe -- and be sure to come back every day and let us know what you'll remember most about the year in movies, from apes to Muppets, vampires to wizards, superheroes to bridesmaids.

If you've been too busy tweeting, texting and Facebooking today to notice the news that Paula Patton just signed on to a new movie, that's only fitting, because ... that's exactly what the film is about.
Here's the news, in slightly more than 140 easily digestible characters: According to Deadline, Patton has signed on to join the cast of "Disconnect," which tells the tale of a group of family and friends slowly torn apart by the very social media designed to bring them together.
Now that's something we can all "like." Get More »
