    Scarlett Johansson is having second thoughts on monogamy. In Playboy's March/April 2017 issue, the 32-year-old “Ghost in the Shell” star admitted that she isn’t sure people are designed to be monogamous in relationships. “I think the idea of marriage is very romantic; it’s a beautiful idea, and the practice of it can be a very beautiful thing,” said the actress. “I don’t think it’s natural to be a monogamous person. I might be skewered for that, but I think it’s work. It’s a lot of work.” …

    Here’s a crazy idea – I know it seems kind of nuts, but if you are trying to make me watch your show or see your movie, perhaps it might be better not to disrespect patriotic Americans like me.Wacky, huh?Sure, it’s hard to believe that the industry that brought us virile superhunk Michael Cera and sexy ultrahottie Lena Dunham could make bad decisions. The geniuses in Hollywood clearly have their fingers on Americans’ collective pulse, if you define “Americans” as everyone in a coastal megalopolis who lives within 50 yards of a cruelty-free organic coffee shop.Take 24: Legacy, the new...

    During the presidential campaign, several dozen brainless Hollywood stars were so upset at Donald Trump that they promised to leave the country if he won. Well we are still waiting for them to do everyone a favor and exit stage left. Of course, they lied and continue to pollute the airwaves here in America. Now that it is awards season for the movie industry, it has been non-stop criticism of our new President. At the Golden Globes Awards, Meryl Streep blasted President Trump for his supposedly hateful gesturing about a disabled reporter during the campaign. Never mind that the...

    —On a crisp November evening three weeks after the election, about 600 local activists gathered on a sound stage at the old Mack Sennett studios in Silver Lake where nearly a century ago the Keystone Cops slipped on banana peels and dodged pies in the face. The crowd, which quickly overflowed the available seats and sat on the bare floor, had been convened by Beau Willimon, the creator of the Netflix series “House of Cards,” and a still-idealistic veteran of Howard Dean’s insurgent 2004 presidential campaign. As Willimon took the microphone, a gray scrim hanging behind him bore the projected...

    Meryl Streep has played many roles in her long career and holds the record for the most Academy Award nominations of any actor. Among her portrayals was British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. At the Golden Globe Awards Sunday night, Streep behaved as if she actually had been elected to high office, entitling her to mount a high horse. In a six-minute, post-election diatribe, Streep slammed president-elect Donald Trump, urging journalists to hold him accountable. Given the media's poor job of holding the current president accountable, Streep's call to arms seems like an invitation to a one-way street. Accountability is one...

    Barbra Streisand is standing with Meryl Streep, who used her acceptance speech at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards to criticize Donald Trump for lacking empathy and infamously mocking a disabled reporter in 2015. A day after Streep delivered her blistering rebuke of the president-elect, Streisand called in to Hardball With Chris Matthews and expressed her solidarity. I thought that [Streep] said what she said beautifully, Streisand remarked. Regarding Trump's ridiculing of journalist Serge F. Kovaleski 14 months ago, Streisand added, I completely agree with Meryl. It was a heartbreaking moment and so beneath the dignity of the presidency, let alone any...

We spoke with the UFC honcho about Meryl's comments Sunday night -- when she was ripping Donald Trump's immigration plans and said if we kick out foreigners, "you'll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts, which are not the arts." White objects in a BIG WAY -- calling the dig at his sport "stupid" and "uneducated." We also asked if he thought Meryl targeted MMA because Dana gave a speech for Trump...

I’m sorry to say, I personally don’t like your films or your acting, but I guess I’m just another deplorable who watches football and “mixed” martial arts when John Wayne movies aren’t on TV. In typical Hollywood tradition, you used your moment in the spotlight on stage to bash President-Elect Trump and soon to be President Trump. As Jackie Gleason said, “How sweet it is…” Your little tirade on stage consisted of a myriad of criticisms launched against Mr. Trump. In...

Produced by Hollywood lefties Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, it’s a liberal polemic preaching about the dangers of eeeeevil multinational corporations, capitalism, and global warming disguised as trendy, futuristic, post-apocalyptic entertainment. From the first seconds of the premiere, titled “Vertical Mobility,” the liberal agenda is made clear when these words appear on the screen, setting up the premise of the show: “The year is 2074. Climate change has ravaged the planet, causing widespread famine and bankrupting governments. In their place, multinational corporations have risen in power and...

Shannon apparently thinks all Trump supporters should die -- especially the old ones. During the interview, the focus turned to the recent presidential election in which Republican Donald Trump defeated Democrat Hillary Clinton. Shannon could not believe the outcome of the election and told Prigge that he “could use some vengeance right now.” But then, the interview turned into a mutual Trump-bashing party, during which Prigge asked Shannon, “How...

The arguments about Donald Trump being sexist are a broader part of the narrative that various news outlets attempt to create. If they can keep Republicans labeled as sexist overall, then they have achieved their goal. (After all, in many ways Trump...

That the two young people in question are named Barack Obama and Michelle Robinson almost feels like an afterthought in Richard Tanne’s modest but enormously...

The world is a precarious place right now.#stop #reflect and #act appropriately.” Again, this text was all accompanied by a photo of Mischa Barton on vacation for some baffling reason. Maybe when she’s calling for critical thinking from her fellow...

The Lord of the Rings star later clarified first to The Hollywood Reporter and then on his personal Twitter account that his comments about "something major ......

    Thirty-seven years ago, at the age of 32, Moustapha Dali quit show business. An Algeria native, he'd begun to build an acting career in France but tired of his Paris agents telling him he'd have to change his name to one "less Arabic, more French." As Dali recounts it, "I told them I wanted to keep my name. I said Omar Sharif didn't change his name, but they said, 'He's not a French actor, he works in Hollywood.' " Today, at age 69, the scholarly, erudite Dali is the soft-spoken but righteous rector of the Mosquee Al Madina, the main...

    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 newspaper said voters were confused by the use of...

Now eight years later, Stone feels it's the female candidate's time. "Look at everything she's been through.

    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.

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...

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.
