    A survey has found that tens of thousands of voters, including Demi Moore and other celebrities, have mistakenly registered as members of a conservative minor political party in California in a mix-up over its name, a newspaper reported Sunday. The Los Angeles Times said that a telephone survey of 500 members of the American Independent Party found nearly 3 of 4 people did not realize they had enrolled in a political party that opposes abortion rights and same sex marriage and calls for building a fence along the U.S. border. The newspaper said voters were confused by the use of...

    Sharon Stone is the latest celebrity to weigh in on the 2016 presidential election.Like many in Hollywood, the actress endorsed Barack Obama over Hillary Clinton in 2008. Now eight years later, Stone feels it's the female candidate's time. "Look at everything she's been through. Why would she have been secretary of state during the most demanding and dangerous time this country has seen since World War II?" Stone tells The Hollywood Reporter. "She could go retire somewhere great, write a book, relax a little. It's not like she needs the $200,000 or whatever you make being president. She just cares...

    Sharon Stone has cancelled filming of an upcoming project in Mississippi as a result of the state’s newly passed anti-LGBT ‘religious freedom on steroids’ bill, HB 1523. The film’s producers informed Mississippi Film Studios president Rick Moore that the law was a deal-breaker for Stone. The unnamed film project reportedly tackles the consequences of cyberbullying. James Cromwell is slated to direct. “Unfortunately, Sharon Stone feels strongly that shooting in Mississippi is not an option while the law exists,” Moore said. “The other producers have chosen to regroup and find another location.” Moore said he has heard of projects on the...

    President Barack Obama is praising Democrats as more willing to make tough choices and criticizing Republicans as afraid to do anything, including vote on his Supreme Court nominee. Speaking at a California fundraiser, Obama lauded House Democrats for casting difficult votes “because we understood we had a certain responsibility to get things done.” “And that’s what we have not seen from the other side,” Obama told about 100 people, including Hollywood stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Julia Roberts and Gwyneth Paltrow, seated at round dining tables in a tent at the Bel Air home of Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn.“And that’s...

    LeVar Burton was initially skeptical of remaking "Roots," the groundbreaking miniseries that launched his career in 1977. But Burton, who played a young Kunta Kinte, overcame those concerns after seeing the educational value in helping the new generation of Americans better relate to the plight of slaves and African-American history, particularly after the election of Barack Obama, the United States' first black president.

    Actress Martha Plimpton, who plays the mother Eileen O’Neal on ABC’s “The Real O’Neals,” recently wore an “abortion dress” to promote her views on abortion, according to the Independent Journal. The shift dress features the word abortion repeatedly with hearts in between. It is part of a social media campaign called #ShoutYourAbortion, which began in 2015 and encourages women – including Plimpton - to share “positive stories about their abortion experience.” The dress is sold on the website Paom, which stands for Print All Over Me and is “an online platform for real world collaboration and creation,” according to the website.The dress...

    Lilly Wachowski, one-half of the sibling filmmaker duo best known for their Matrix trilogy, has come out as a transgender woman in an essay published in the Windy City Times, a Chicago LGBT newspaper. The 48-year-old Wachowski, whose older sister Lana is also transgender, wrote that for the last year, media outlets have been indicating that they would break the news of her transition from Andy to Lilly — a prospect, she writes, that brought “dread and/or eye rolling exasperation.” She finally decided to come out herself after a reporter from the Daily Mail arrived on her doorstep, trying to...

    In one of the most exhaustive and damning reports on diversity in Hollywood, a new study finds that the films and television produced by major media companies are "whitewashed," and that an "epidemic of invisibility" runs top to bottom through the industry for women, minorities and LGBT people. A study to be released Monday by the Media, Diversity and Social Change Initiative at the University of Southern California's Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism offers one of the most wide-ranging examinations of the film and television industries, including a pointed "inclusivity index" of 10 major media companies -- from Disney...

"Leo explained that he wanted to discuss a subject they both have very much at heart: protecting the environment and climate change," a source tells PEOPLE. DiCaprio, 41, arrived at the Vatican at 11:15 a.m. local time and was accompanied by his father, George DiCaprio, and Milutin Gatsby, global fundraising chair for the actor's namesake charity, the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation. During the 15-minute meeting, the actor presented the pontiff with a check from his environmental philanthropy for him...

"There is no racism except for those who create an issue. That is the worst kind. Using such an ugly way of complaining," Molen told The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday.

    Michael Moore's image has been sitting on a time bomb for years now -- and David Zucker was the cunning movie producer who had planted this proverial 'bomb'. Remember the 'Naked Gun'? Or the other comedy, 'Airplane'? That's David Zucker. What many people don't know about him is that Zucker has lampooned Michael Moore and the leftist Establishment in 'An American Carole', a hard-hitting comedy that all conservatives would enjoy and take great gratification from -- at Michael Moore's expense more than anyone else.

    Some pro-abortion feminists recently denounced Hollywood for not producing TV and movie plots wherein the unborn baby is dispatched with zero remorse. It doesn't get more extremist than this. While Hollywood is without question virtually (but not entirely) unanimous in its pro-choice sentiments, even when the abortion option is selected, rarely is it selected without personal angst for the simple reason that there is angst -- unless you're devoid of a soul and a conscience. That cry for saccharine pro-abortion propaganda was satisfied on Nov. 18 by ABC's Thursday night drama "Scandal." Not only did the central character, Olivia Pope,...

    PETA and Hannibal are urging Americans to go vegetarian this Thanksgiving by comparing turkey to human flesh. It used to be the joke that a Puritan (aka Pilgrim) was someone who lay awake at night worrying that someone, somewhere, was having a good time. There aren't many Puritans around these days. Instead, we have the joyless scolds at PETA, and some of their not-so-bright Hollywood pals, trying to ruin the holiday the Pilgrims originated. Just in time for Thanksgiving, creator Bryan Fuller and star Gillian Anderson of NBC's cannibal-themed show Hannibal joined forces with PETA to produce an ad against...

Tarantino explained his statement that triggered the boycott by saying, “Well, we were at a rally that was dealing with unarmed people, mostly black and brown, who have been shot and killed, or beaten, or strangled by the police, and I was obviously referring to the people in those type of situations. I was referring to Eric Garner. I was referring to Sam...

According to the Academy Award-winner, who discovered through the 2014 Sony email hacks that she and co-star Amy Adams had made less money than “the lucky people with d---s” (Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper and Jeremy Renner), her mistake was trying to avoid seeming "difficult" or "spoiled"...

Her statement was met with an awkward groan from Raven-Symone before co-host Rosie Perez said, “Latinos are not the only people doing that.” Osbourne quickly back-pedaled, saying “I would never mean it like that.

    Politics is downstream from culture. Until we reclaim the culture, it will be difficult to reclaim political power. Nowhere is this more evident than in the LA Weekly’s review of “Trainwreck.” It may shock readers to know that this is not only a very funny movie, but espouses Conservative values. The LA Weekly review, however, asks “Trainwreck has laughs, but at what cost?” One would expect that the review would tackle any harmful, unethical or immoral themes in the film. It does, but in classic Liberal Bizarro-World fashion, it reverses which values are harmful. (Some mild spoilers follow, although if...

    UC campus police arrested music mogul P. Diddy after he assaulted a UCLA coach and swung a kettlebell (a piece of weight-lifting equipment) at a football intern, according to sources. The incident began early Monday morning when Justin Combs, Diddy’s son, was participating in an off-season workout on UCLA’s field. According to sources, Combs, who will be a redshirt junior defensive back this fall, had missed some recent workouts and wasn’t giving a great effort Monday morning, so UCLA strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi kicked him out of the session. At approximately noon, Combs and Diddy came to UCLA’s...

Clooney’s latest is the gargantuan flop “Tomorrowland” — a $190 million bomb (not including $100 million or so in worldwide marketing costs) that looks like it’s going to gross a little more than half of that at the North American box office. It’s delicately being referred to as an underperformer because no one in Hollywood wants to hurt the...

The Disney release is expected to pull in a lackluster $40.7 million for the four-day period. -snip- "Tomorrowland" had been expected to generate $40 million over the three-day period and $50 million over the four-day stretch. With a $180 million price tag, Disney faces an uphill climb to profitability. Not helping matters, overseas figures were an underwhelming $26.7...

    CBS wasted no time in kicking David Letterman to the curb. ​Just hours after Letterman said farewell after 33 years on late-night TV, Ed Sullivan Theater crews hauled off blocks of blue stage and hacked up pieces of the iconic New York City bridges that made up the set of the “Late Show​.” Fans and passers-by gathered around a police barricade cordoning off the Ed Sullivan to watch workers unceremoniously chuck red theater chairs into an overflowing Dumpster and ​take reciprocating saws to his miniature Brooklyn Bridge.

    Courtney Stodden is doing her part to give back to the community — by donating the cash she was offered for her 'stolen' sex tape to charity. For those of you who are unaware of the sex tape saga (what, too busy following the world news or something?), the 20-year-old admitted she filmed a “solo sex tape” and was then offered a million bucks from Vivid Entertainment for the distribution rights. Initially, she refused, saying that it was personal footage for her — and, presumably, husband Doug Hutchison’s — eyes only. She has since clarified her story, explaining to that...

    Is it me or is this dude creepy looking? I just saw that liquor commercial (can't remember the details of the comm) and they show him at the end of the ad where he laughs and his face doesn't move. I remember him in a movie (the title escapes me right now)with Kurt Russell in which he was a psycho cop preying on Russell's wife and he was creepy then. Is this guy on some kind of facial drug?

    Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender characters may be showing up on television with increasing regularity, but they are still a relative rarity in mainstream movies released by the major Hollywood studios. In its third annual report about LGBT representation on film, GLAAD, the gay advocacy group, found that of the 114 releases from the major studios in 2014, only 20 of them, or 17.5 percent, included characters identified as lesbian, gay or bisexual. [Snip] Among the inclusive films, the report found, 65 percent of them featured gay male characters, less than a third featured bisexuals and about one tenth included...

    Poor Barbra Streisand. Just last month the renowned economist (who also describes herself as a “singer,” “actress,” and “activist”) penned an opinion piece titled “Have You Heard the Good News?” about how well the economy is performing under Barack Obama. It was a pep rally of sorts, and all that was missing were the pom-poms. “President Obama’s administration, with only opposition from the Republicans,” she gushed, “has steadily helped put more than 11 million Americans back to work in the private sector.”

    Barbra Streisand may not be the brightest star in Hollywood. In fact, sometimes you look into her eyes and get the feeling someone else is driving. The starlet, who once compared President Obama to “kings” and “gods,” penned a March 30 commentary in the Huffington Post singing the praises of the president for “creating” so many jobs in the last five-and-a-half years. The piece, titled, “Have you heard the good news?,” promptly heaps praise on Obama: “In the wake of the financial crisis, President Obama took the helm of a sinking economic ship and help to right it. The unemployment...

    Astrophysicist and cosmologist Neil DeGrasse Tyson is defending Scientology in light of HBO's highly critical documentary on the church. HBO's documentary "Going Clear" did not show the church in an entirely positive light — Scientology has a built a reputation for tormenting members who leave it either by surveillance or harassment. The film highlights the celebrities who made the religion intriguing to the world as well as the horrific stories of abuse from former members. But Tyson, in an interview with The Daily Beast, declined to bash the controversial church, saying people are free to believe whatever they want. "So,...

    It has been called “The History-Making Gay Kiss,” as “The Fosters” TV show, which airs during prime time on the ABC Family network, featured the “Youngest Same-Sex TV Kiss Ever.” Yes, on a so-called “family friendly” network, two 13-year-old boys locked lips, and gay activists and their allies are celebrating the moment. GLAAD, formally known as the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, stated that, “ABC Family's 'The Fosters' breaks new ground with Jude and Connor kiss.” (For those who are not familiar with the show, Jude is raised by two lesbians, his adoptive parents.) Gabe Bergado, writing for the...
