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 »
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?
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 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 »
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?
