Can you say "'Iron Man 2" reunion"?
As much as we'd like to forget that particular sequel confection, all the essential ingredients of it were solid (except perhaps the gamey taste of Mickey Rourke), so it makes our mouth water to learn via The Hollywood Reporter that the delectable Scarlett Johansson will be assembling with Avenger Robert Downey Jr. for star/director Jon Favreau's "Chef."

In another installment of "Les Mean Girl"-ing, actress Scarlett Johansson has taken a little time from her busy Broadway theatrics schedule for "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" to pout over losing the role of Fantine in Tom Hooper's "Les Miserables" to the now-awards heavy Anne Hathaway.
Uh huh, for real. ScarJo declared to Broadway.com that while she went into her audition for the role fully prepared and enthused, she just couldn't shake a mean sore throat and it cost her big time.
"I sang my little heart out," she said, "The jazz hands kid inside me was just over the moon!" Get More »
Sometimes, two ladies make out with each other in major motion pictures. Other times, they not only make out with each other — they simulate sexual intercourse with each other. AND because the Internet exists, each of those instances is easily accessible to everybody with a computer, context-free. I know, right? And some people claim to be "pessimists?" (laughs to himself.)

Who among you had Scarlett Johansson receiving an Oscar nomination today but not Kathryn Bigelow? Anyone? Johansson's loved ones? James Cameron? (Okay, James Cameron probably did).

Ah, Hanukah! Festival of Lights! A time for Jews everywhere to get together in a spirit of peace, give gifts and sing songs. It's also a time for gentiles everywhere to ask questions like "So... what's the deal with Hanukah?" and "How do you spell Chanukah?" and "Why does it keep moving around the calendar like a celebratory hobo?"
These are good questions; deep questions. And who better to ask than Hollywood's Jewish stars! But who's Jewish? It's no shock that certain actors are from the tribe (shalom, Sasha Baron Cohen!), but Zac Efron? Get More »
The new year is fast approaching and, on the Internet, that means just one thing: Time to put together some top 10 lists. And since "The Avengers" was undoubtedly the film event of the year — $1.5 billion worldwide doesn't lie — we thought it would only be fitting to ring out the old by taking a look at the Top 10 Avengers of 2012.
Just how awesome are the Avengers? They're so awesome that they get a Top 10 list even though there were only six of them in the movie. Get More »
You know those words that seem impossible to spell right on the first try, but are nonetheless part of everyday language? "Apparent." "Vacuum." Even "misspell" is a tough one.
What if your name was as easy to misspell as, well, "misspell"? For some unlucky celebrities (and lucky people who write about them), typos in their names are just a part of the job. After all, there's a reason Cher ditched her birth name, Cherilyn Sarkisian La Piere, in favor of a more writer-friendly moniker.
