Winona Ryder recently sat down with New York’s Heather Havrilesky for the magazine’s August 8, 2016 cover feature. Reflecting on her career’s trajectory and her recent starring role in Stranger Things, the actress also commented on the ways the media has pathologized her.
Two weeks ago, Shannen Doherty revealed photos of herself with a shaved head, a symbolic announcement that she had begun chemotherapy for her breast cancer. Originally diagnosed in February 2015, she says now that the cancer spread further than she and her doctors had hoped—out of her breasts and into the lymph nodes.
Actress Liv Tyler—who you may have recently seen in The Leftovers and adored once upon a time in Empire Records—has given birth to a baby girl. She and fiancé David Gardner have named her Lula Rose Gardner.
Olivia de Havilland, legendary star of classics like Gone With the Wind and (my personal favorite) Lady In a Cage, was born on this day in 1916. The newly minted centenarian has called three continents her home (she was born in Japan), lived through two world wars, had two husbands, and won two Oscars.
In a provocative profile from The Guardian, actress and Love & Friendship star Chloe Sevigny reflects on her past work with controversial figures like photographer Terry Richardson—who has been accused of sexual assault—Larry Clark, and Lars von Trier. Cumulatively, her experiences have left her with “total disdain…
A growing number of big-deal actresses are just real, real tired of making less money than Bradley Cooper, and willing to say so publicly. After Jennifer Lawrence’s open letter regarding pay inequality, both Jessica Chastain and Rooney Mara have fed-up things to say about the wage gap in their industry.
Imagine coming to New York with your family. You want to see a show, but don’t really care which. Tony winners are the toughest and most expensive tickets in town, Book of Mormon isn’t quite family friendly enough, Phantom feels too old, you saw The Lion King when it came to your town a decade ago, and WHAT?! When the…
Actress Katrina Day came across this casting call a few weeks ago and decided she'd had enough.
Living American treasure Elaine Stritch caused exaggerated gasps of faux shock when she dropped an F-bomb in front of Hoda and Kathie Lee earlier this week. And when reporters asked her about the transgression, she confessed that she had not a single ounce of fuck to give.
Award-nominated actors, you might as well give up telling self-deprecating jokes in the mirror and put down the quote books you're mining for award speech inspiration; you're never going to top the speech Emma Thompson gave at last night's National Board of Review Gala, or the bomb-ass intro Meryl Streep gave for her.…
The Hollywood Reporter's Tatiana Siegel has written an interesting article where she argues, relatively convincingly, that as the median age of movegoers increases (hello baby boomers!), Hollywood actresses are aging with them and getting better parts (and better pay) out of it. But are they really?
Lucy Liu has been acting for 22 years, and at 44-years-old, the actress has played everything from "Asian girl who beats everyone up" to "Asian girl with no emotion". That's a direct quote from Liu, by the way.
Everyone can relax about their faces and bodies because if Audrey Hepburn didn't think she was gorgeous, we can all just give the fuck up.
Here's some test footage from 1922 of Kodak's full-color Kodachrome film featuring actresses doing their thing. It's mesmerizing, and the music isn't helping to not lull everyone into a trance.
Capote. Ray. Malcolm X. Nixon. Milk. Ali. Chaplin.
With each passing sassafras interview, Jennifer Lawrence is endearing herself to my heart. Is that even possible? Because it's happening. In an interview with the New York Times, she talkes about so many things that make me swoon — including Woody Harrelson's teeth, being unfazed by the Oscars, and her new movie in…
No one is pretty when they cry. OK, fine. Nicole Kidman is pretty when she cries, and Lauren Conrad didn't look terrible that time she cried streaks of mascara down her face. But the rest of us — gorgeous actresses included — have what is known as a "cryface." And it's almost invariably hilarious.
For the longest time, the film industry largely regarded aging actresses as disposable, creating roles for younger women who hadn't yet outlived their use of being innocent and fertile and sexually appealing to that all-important male audience to which studios catered. But the tide seems to be turning. The average age…
Beyoncé's odd foldy belly and the scrutiny thereof heralds a new era in celebrity culture: we've moved beyond watching starlets' stomachs for the slightest sign of a baby bump, to monitoring their figures for signs that their pregnancies are fake.
