Forget your triple tall morning espresso. There’s a faster way to get your blood boiling: a hearty dose of mansplaining: Russell Crowe, the de facto emissary of all things misogynistic, is at it again.
The 50-year-old star of the upcoming film "The Water Diviner" told Australian Women’s Weekly, “To be honest, I think you’ll find that the woman who is saying that [the roles have dried up] is the woman who at 40,45,48, still wants to play the ... Read More

On Saturday, Sept. 20, The Theater at The Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles held an art gala with proceeds benefiting Planned Parenthood. Radiating a poetic elegance from every angle, the venue reiterated the contextual nature of the beast, the SEXY BEAST, that is; an antiquity built with a solid foundation—restored in the name of modern progression. Oh, the metaphors!
SEXY BEAST was organized by Davida Nemeroff and Mieke Marple of the ... Read More

Watts was stopped after someone reported her and her partner, chef Brian James Lucas, kissing in their car. After refusing to show her ID, Watts was handcuffed, allegedly causing her wrist to ... Read More

Melissa McCarthy is my spirit animal. She, and a host of other brilliant, badass ladies are slowly conquering the male-dominated mountain that is modern comedy, and for that I am eternally grateful. Her growing resume speaks for itself, from hosting Saturday Night Live three times to her hilarious performances in blockbusters like The Heat and her upcoming film Tammy (opening July 2nd). She has asserted herself as a comedy powerhouse and ... Read More

On May 25th The Washington Post published an article by Ann Hornaday which cited movies like Judd Apatow's and Seth Rogan’s recent film “Neighbors” as feeding into the misogynistic culture that cultivates killers, like Elliot Rodger, who experience the conflicted “toxic double helix of insecurity and entitlement that comprises Hollywood’s DNA.”
Now, I enjoy your average Hollywood flick as much as the next girl, but I have ... Read More

Summer is the perfect time for movie theater refuge. When your air-conditioning cruelly breaks in the middle of a heat wave, there is nothing better than fleeing to the movies to watch March of the Penguins (or was that just me?) However, The Wrap has revealed that out of 39 movies being released this summer, only one, Jupiter Down, is directed by a woman. Excuse me, CO-DIRECTED by a woman, Lana Wachowski with her brother, Andy.
In 2009, The New York ... Read More

James Franco is a white, heterosexual, wealthy, educated male. He is a multifaceted artist and has loads of talent that he spreads to many, many projects. He has received endless accolades and awards for his creative efforts and shows that actors can have substance and are a wealth of ideas and thoughts. However, he is a super privileged dude who just defaced one of my favorite female artists.
When I first heard about James Franco’s opening at PACE Gallery I ... Read More

I learned about blow jobs from Charlie Chaplin. (Yes, that Charlie Chaplin). I was about 12 and with my babysitting earnings I bought the book Hollywood Babylon. As a passionate old movie fan, and an adolescent girl with a filthy mind and an even filthier curiosity, a book like Hollywood Babylon was a dream come true. The book dealt with various Tinsel Town scandals, and while I now know that much of the book is just blatantly untrue and much is just based on ... Read More

We're pretty excited for the opening of Divergent this Friday, woot!
Check out our exclusive cover story with hippy child Shailene Woodley below.
The first thing I notice about Shailene (pronounced “Shay-LEEN”) Woodley is her feet—they’re bare. She’s just arrived at the Los Angeles hillside house where we’re shooting her BUST cover, and ditching her footwear outside the front door was the first thing she did. The shoes she ... Read More
