UPDATE: According to The Wrap, the three actresses in top contention for the leading female role are currently Charlize Theron, Natalie Portman and Emily Blunt. Basically three women with the perfect trifecta of talent, beauty and brains. Good stuff.

PREVIOUSLY: Ben Affleck might've dropped out of "Focus" to make sure he could helm his little "Live By Night" project in time to meet Warner Bros.' scheduling expectations, but the "Argo" director might just be getting a chance to put off his next behind-the-lens effort just long enough to star in David Fincher's adaptation of the wildly popular Gillian Flynn thriller novel "Gone Girl."

Jessica Chastain Won't 'Zero Dark Thirty' it Up for 'Rodham'

Does Jessica Chastain do a good Hillary Clinton impersonation? She could, right? The gorg little fireball is quite the chameleon, after all, innit? ... Alas, it looks like we might just never know the answer to that question.

Per The Huffington Post, the "Zero Dark Thirty" star shot down rumors of her involvement with James Ponsoldt's Hillary Clinton biopic "Rodham" on Saturday, responding to a gaggle of British journos who brought up her rumored contention for the part with, "No, that's actually not true. I found out about the project online, but, yeah, there's a lot of stuff out there."

13 Hollywood Loopers

Columbia Pictures Columbia Pictures

The visual effects department had to do a pretty bang-up job to make Joseph Gordon-Levitt look even remotely similar to a young yippee ki-yaying mother-f---er Bruce Willis in Rian Johnson's time-hopping "Looper," but since Hollywood's baddest, baldest ass-kicker was blessed with three daughters and no sons in real life, there wasn't much of a choice. Sure, all that pain and suffering ultimately paid off, but there are some people who've got it way, way easier. Get More »

Reese Witherspoon's Arrest Video: 'Sweet Home Alabama 2'?

Well, ya'll, the video is in, so America's not-so-sweetheart just can't "aw shucks" her way outta this one.

Pop open a cold brew — it is Friday — and watch as Reese Witherspoon accosts a Georgia police officer for arresting her hubby Jim Toth for DUI and finds herself stuffed into the back of the copper's car thanks to her surprisingly nasty mouth. Elle Woods might call this drunk girl a "frigid b***h."

This just happened in Atlanta two weeks ago, but, eerily enough, it also kinda happened over a decade ago when Reese Witherspoon's "Sweet Home Alabama" character Melanie Smooter got drunk at a Southern bar and started sassing everyone and reminding them of her status among real city folk.

Shall we compare the quotage here?

Real talk: "Do you know my name, sir? You don't need to know my name? Oh, really? Okay, you're about to find out who I am."

Movie talk: "I mean, how do you people live like this anyway? Did you know that there's a great big old world out there that has absolutely nothing with chitlins or children or beer?"

The attitude is identical, no?

Another couple of her real-life gems include "I'm obstructing your justice. Really? I'm being anti-American?" and "I am a U.S. citizen, and I am allowed to stand on American ground and ask any question I want to ask. You better not arrest me!"

Oh Reese. Elle Woods would totally object to this behavior. Maybe you should go for a run. After all, exercise gives you endorphins, and endorphins make people happy! Happy people just don't get arrested for sassing police officers.

That's how the line goes, right?

The 9 Best Methods for Scheming Your Way into College

Admission Focus Features

Most of you won't remember this, but there was a time when getting into college was more about taking the first step to a bright future and less about self-inflicted, crippling debt and lifelong lament that someone actually allowed you to major in French Literary Deconstructionism. Get More »

Where 25 Movie Stars Went to College

Admission Focus Features

Not all movie stars are created equal. Some are tall. Some are short. Some spend their free time on philanthropy. Some spend their free time in jail. And some secretly gave children up for adoption. Wait; that's actually Tina Fey's character in "Admission" — not to be confused with the real Tina Fey, who (at the time of this posting) has not put any of her offspring up for adoption. Get More »

Actors pumping up other actors during awards season — is this becoming a thing now? Or is the cast of the true story tsunami drama "The Impossible" just that good?

Following Angelina Jolie's big speech in support of Ewan McGregor's work in the flick last month, Reese Witherspoon has now penned a public love letter to lead actress Naomi Watts to help strengthen her Oscar play (note that both Jolie and Witherspoon have won Academy Awards, while neither McGregor nor Watts have ... yet), even though they do not know each other well.

For Entertainment Weekly's new "Consider This" series, Witherspoon doted on Watts for being the absolute "life-breath" of the entire movie. Get More »
