OK, considering 'Star Wars: Episode 7' doesn't come out for another year and the only footage we've seen from the movie is 88-seconds long and we still don't even know any of the characters names, you might think that there's not a lot to know about J.J. Abrams' secretive 'Star Wars' movie. We find your lack of faith disturbing! In this very special bonus episode of You Think You Know Movies, we're dropping some galactic knowledge on you. The facts are strong with this one!
So, you think it's all fun and games being a movie star and filming the biggest movie of the year? Tell that to Jennifer Lawrence, the star of the 'Hunger Games' franchise who, while filming one of the 'Catching Fire' Cornucopia scenes, had a powerful water jet blast her right in the ear that left her partially deaf. All for your entertainment! That's just one of the little known bits of trivia packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which focuses on the biggest film of 2013, 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire'.
Made for only $12 million, 'The Fault in Our Stars' went on to make over $300 million worldwide. It's a full-on young adult phenomenon. But, even if you've sobbed your way through the tragic love story of Hazel and Gus multiple times, you still might not know everything there is to know about the movie. That's where we come in.
If you have kids or little brothers and sisters, you've probably seen 'Frozen' ohhh a thousand times by now. But, even if you can sing "Let It Go" forwards and backwards in your sleep, you still might not know everything there is to know about Disney's biggest animated movie ever.
In the world of tattoos (as with anything else) there are good ones, bad ones, and those that should be lasered off before the ink even sets. Celebrity tats are no different. Just because someone is rich and famous doesn't mean their body art is any better than anyone else's.
In fact, sometimes it's the exact opposite.
Hollywood is a pretty incestuous place, and with all that hooking up going on, it's not surprising that some very odd combinations have occurred. And quite a few of those couplings happened so long ago -- or were over so quickly -- that they often escaped mass media attention...
Not every celebrity loves being in the spotlight 24/7, as hard as that is to believe. Plenty of celebs live outside of Los Angeles and New York to avoid any undue attention and stay under the radar. Although they still probably have satellite homes in those places -- just in case they're itching for an ego boost.
It looks like Lil’ Kim has been having a lil’ work done. As near as we can tell, she took a photo of La Toya Jackson to a plastic surgeon raising money for his mom's heart transplant and told him what she was going for, so he's trying his damndest to get her there.
Because, seriously, what?
Have you seen her face lately? Even calling it "her face" is inaccurate at this point -- because w
With ridiculous celebrity salaries comes ridiculous celebrity purchases, and a few stars have spent their dough on some pretty outrageous buys. It's like the more cash they have, the more problems they don't see.
Standards of beauty are somewhat skewed in Hollywood. In order to get roles, career success and media attention, a woman with a perfectly good body is required to purchase a pair of bolt-on boobs to prove she’s really got what it takes to make her mark in the world of celebrities.
Tabloids have long been the perfect entertainment material for extended periods of waiting in line at the grocery store, excessive delays in doctors' offices and road trips to far-off states. They're inexpensive and full of strange and fascinating stories of the weird, wacky and macabre.
Well, actually, they're full of stories that don't ever turn out to be nearly as strange or fascinating as the
Since the fountain of youth is a myth perpetrated by that silly fictional adventurer Ponce de León, Hollywood celebrities must rely on plastic surgeons to help them keep their youthful appearances. Or at least try to.
It seems like any yutz can get a job in television (here's looking at you, 'Teen Mom' stars). For every editor slaving 15 hours a day over tons of footage to make 'Real Housewives' look, well, real, there are a boatload of folks who collect monster-sized paychecks for putting in so little effort, it would make a member of Congress blush.
Based on the comic book of the same name, the 2001 movie 'Ghost World' centered around two teenage outcasts -- best friends Enid (Thora Birch) and Rebecca (Scarlett Johansson) -- just after their senior year of high school. Throw in a missed connection, a heartfelt performance from Steve Buscemi, summer school, raw human emotion, a healthy dose of snark and more than a few growing pains, and you g
Apparently it's not enough that celebrities have cross-pollinated their careers to the point where they're actors, models, musicians, songwriters, mathematicians and authors. Now they've also pervaded our video games.
'When Harry Met Sally…,' released in 1989, almost instantly became a rom-com classic. It follows Harry, a political consultant, and journalist (not gymnast!) Sally for 12 years -- from their acrimonious first meeting during a cross-country drive right after college, through uncomfortable chance encounters later on, and finally their eventual friendship that of course turns into something much more
