Changing appearances for the sake of entertainment is nothing new in Hollywood; it's all part of the gig. But when professional heartthrob Ryan Gosling tweaks his look, disgruntled fans are going to have something to say about it.
In "The Place Beyond the Pines," Gosling sports a bleach-blond 'do for his role as a motorcycle racer-turned-bank robber. As photos started surfacing during the film's production, people were wondering what the heck was going on with his hair. Serious drama. Get More »
Dads are good guys. They put together our complicated toys, they taught us to drive, and they took us camping. But we've always considered him to be a total dork, or the big bad guy who Mom would call on to deliver the harshest punishments.
We wanted a father who was more like ones in movies. Why didn't we have a dad who built a magical baseball field, was fabulously wealthy, and who greeted crises with jokes, hugs, or lethal force instead of groundings?
We know our dads were cool, always there for us, and making us better people. We love them dearly. But in honor of Father's Day, here are 13 movie dads we still find ourselves admiring for their humor, cuddliness, special talents, and in some cases, bank vaults full of money. Get More »
That's right: She has (officially) arrived. With "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 2" just a sliver over five months from its release date on November 16, Summit has released the first look at the young Mackenzie Foy as Renesmee, the vampire hybrid love child of Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattinson).
Too bad she's hiding behind Mommy, making it almost impossible to actually see her. Sigh. Get More »
The "Twilight" gang has stayed plenty busy since launching straight into the cultural zeitgeist four years ago, and some of the franchise actors have had much more luck than others when it comes to scoring impressive and interesting roles.
One nabbed an Oscar nom, two had films in competition at Cannes this year, and another headlines an exciting new J.J. Abrams series this fall. Others have endured critical and box office flops, straight-to-DVD blunders and yes, even a Razzie "win."
Until this weekend, though, none have stretched their legs into new series territory -- but Kristen Stewart really puts her box-office muster to the test as she moves from the damp world of Forks into the clutches of Ravenna's evil queen-dom for "Snow White and the Huntsman." In celebration of her second franchise bid, we take a look at what all of the "Twilight" kids have been up to since first making their mark on modern pop culture not too long ago.
What exactly does it say about our culture that the two biggest superheroes of the summer movie season are also billionaires, and how does a Cullen family patriarch fit into it all?
Must be rich folk can afford better body armor than your average working class vigilante, and 400-years as a vampire gives you a leg up playing the stockmarket, as Forbes Magazine adds Bruce Wayne (#8) and Tony Stark (#5) as well as "Twilight" vampire Carlisle Cullen (Peter Facinelli) at #3, to their 2012 list of the "Fictional 15," the wealthiest made-up people in the world.

It's not quite as shocking as a split between Edward and Bella would be, but this comes pretty close.
Sorry, Twihards, but not all love stories have happy endings.
Confession: When I started Confessions of a (Male) Twi-Hard and wrote my introductory Twi-Hard Bucket List, I wasn't honestly sure whether or not I would cross any of the items off the list. That isn't to say I didn't want to, I just looked at most of the items as pure fantasy. And besides, most of the personalities listed would probably be freaked out by a 30-something male "Twilight" superfan.
That's why my stomach kind of dropped when the NextMovie editor called me and said Peter Facinelli agreed to meet me for chicken wings. "Really? You've got to be kidding." He wasn't. That's how I found myself in Midtown Manhattan's Lansdowne Road bar at 11 a.m. on Friday morning, sitting across a table of Buffalo wings from the man who plays Carlisle Cullen. Get More »
Just because he plays a vampire dad doesn't mean Peter Facinelli can't have human tastes.
The actor has come a long way since first catching our eye as Mike Dexter, Jennifer Love-Hewitt's loser boyfriend in "Can't Hardly Wait." Now not only is he best known for playing vampire patriarch Dr. Carlisle Cullen in "The Twilight Saga," but he also stars as another doctor, Fitch Cooper, in Showtime's "Nurse Jackie."
The versatile actor, who wrote and stars in the film "Loosies," took a few moments to share some pop-culture picks that are pretty current for a 368-year-old vampire. Get More »
I'm over a week late, but Happy New Year, Twi-hards. I hope you all had a great time covering yourselves in glitter and playing pin-the-tail on the R.Pattz, or whatever it is you choose to do on New Year's Eve.
Last year during this time, I urged you to make the resolution to watch more "Twilight" because "Eclipse" was only No. 4 in the 2010 box office numbers. Sadly, you didn't listen to me. "Breaking Dawn - Part 1" came in fifth in 2011, behind even "Kung Fu Panda 2." C'mon, people! That's just sad. Resolve right now to make "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" top the 2012 box office numbers, like the last installment of "Harry Potter" did this year. We can't lose to those Pot-heads ... again.
Enough with the browbeating, it's time to look ahead at an exciting year for "The Twilight Saga" cast. Not only will they be completing the best movie franchise of all time, but they'll be flying out on their own with new, more adult projects. Here's a look into their future. Get More »
The 21st Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards earlier this week honored some of the year's best independent films at Cipriani Wall Street … and was the place to be to meet the stars.
I made my way to the restaurant shortly after arrivals had ended and the ceremony had begun in hopes that the crowd would have dissipated and I'd be able to catch the celebrities as they left the big event. Unfortunately, I was wrong. After the crowd continued to grow, security put up some barricades, of which I'm actually a fan. Even though they can be over-crowded and make your pictures a little awkward, they create a safer environment for the stars to greet the fans, and that only encourages them to do so. Get More »
