Kim Novak speaks out against Oscar night 'bullies'

If you made a mean joke about Kim Novak’s changing face on Oscar night, she wants you to know you really hurt her feelings.

The Vertigo star — whose current appearance became one of the buzzier moments of the Oscar ceremony this year — told the Associated Press that the cruel comments really surprised her. “It really did throw me into a tailspin and it hit me hard,” she explained. “I thought, ‘Perhaps Hollywood is ready to receive me in a different way’…I was just not prepared for such a negative reaction and it just caught me off guard.”

On Thursday, Novak wrote an open letter regarding the Oscars, where she explained, “I’m not going to deny that I had fat injections in my face. They seemed far less invasive than a face lift…In my opinion, a person has a right to look as good as they can, and I feel better when I look better.”

Read the full letter — where she addresses “the elephant in the room” — below: READ FULL STORY

'Space Jam' live read features Seth Green, Blake Griffin, Danielle Fishel and more -- VIDEO

Space-Jam.jpg

Cue up “I Believe I Can Fly.”

Last month, there was a live reading of the 1996 Michael Jordan/Looney Tunes “masterpiece” Space Jam, featuring Seth Green, Danielle Fishel, Ben Schwartz, Nick Kroll and many more. Unfortunately, the whole thing isn’t available online — but Funny or Die has released a 10-minute highlight reel, which clearly proves that the comedians showed up ready to (space) jam. Sadly, there is no surprise Bill Murray appearance.

Led by Blake Griffin as Jordan, the footage from the reading is intercut with interviews in which the cast explains their memories of the movie; Kroll’s fondest memories are the nine minutes of Space Jam he watched on YouTube recently, as he’d never seen the film. Imagine going through life never seeing his Royal Airness help out Daffy Duck! Luckily, the lack of research doesn’t seem to hurt his performance.

Watch below — and get excited for DeAndre Jordan as Charles Barkley: READ FULL STORY

Throwback Thursday: B'Witched, the Irish Spice Girls of the '90s -- VIDEO

B-Witched.jpg

Confession: I never listened to the Spice Girls as a kid. But B*Witched? I was their biggest fan.

I know, I know: B*Witched is just the Irish version of the Spice Girls — or, as some people like to more harshly declare, the Irish copycats of the Spice Girls. But, alas, when “C’est La Vie” first showed up on radio stations in 1998, I was too young to care. And I still don’t, because B*Witched is great.

Whoopi Golberg pens love letter to her vaporizer

Whoopi Goldberg is in love, guys. But not with a human – with her vaporizer pen.

The EGOT winner is now writing for The Cannabist (a publication all about, well, guess). In her first piece, she explains how her trusty vaporizer pen has helped her deal with the pain of glaucoma. Goldberg’s daughter gave her the instrument – and that’s when her love affair with Sippy (yes, “her” name is Sippy) was born.

James Franco rants about 'New York Times' review on Instagram

When the New York Times didn’t give James Franco the glowing Of Mice and Men review he wanted, the actor took to his favorite hangout, Instagram, to express his displeasure.

The show opened Wednesday night on Broadway, with Franco starring as George opposite Chris O’Dowd’s Lennie. It seems Franco spent this morning reading over reviews — including Times theater critic Ben Brantley’s evaluation. Although Brantley didn’t outright insult Franco, or even write anything overwhelmingly negative — in fact, he complimented Franco’s talent, but noted that the star is “often understated to the point of near invisibility” in the play — Franco still wasn’t pleased.

Mara Wilson has 'no interest' in 'Mrs. Doubtfire' sequel

The just-announced Mrs. Doubtfire sequel won’t feature a full cast reunion. Mara Wilson, who played Robin Williams and Sally Field’s young daughter Natalie Hillard, has announced she has no desire to return for a second movie.

“I’ve been in some mediocre movies, but I’ve never been in a sequel. And I have no interest in being in one now,” the actress and writer wrote on Twitter. “Sequels generally suck unless they were planned as part of a trilogy or series. I think Doubtfire ended where it needed to end.”

It was revealed Wednesday that Robin Williams will reunite with original director Chris Columbus for the sequel, which will be written by Elf writer David Berenbaum.

Check out all of Wilson’s Mrs. Doubtfire sequel thoughts below. READ FULL STORY

'Neighbors': Seth Rogen and Zac Efron try out for 'Workaholics' cubicle -- NSFW VIDEO

Workaholics-Neighbors.jpg

In a new Comedy Central video, Seth Rogen and Zac Efron audition for the most coveted role of them all: the fourth member of Adam, Blake, and Anders’ cubicle on Workaholics.

Their appearance in the Workaholics world is part of a promotional tour for the duo’s upcoming movie Neighbors, in which Rogen plays a new dad who clashes with his family’s new neighbor, a rowdy frat — and let’s just say Efron lives up to his role as cocky frat boy in the clip. READ FULL STORY

Channing Tatum is in talks to play a very famous X-Man

It won’t be long now until the X-Men franchise sets a new record for onscreen mutants with Days of Future Past, a movie about future X-Men and past X-Men and perhaps even some present-day X-Men. Beyond lies Apocalypse and another Wolverine and a mysterious spin-off movie that might be X-Force, with the implicit promise that they’ll keep making X-Men movies until X-Men 2099 is considered a period piece. (Remember X-Men 2099? Skullfire!) But a new dark horse has entered the X-Men Spin-Off Showcase sweepstakes: Channing Tatum told MTV’s Josh Horowitz that he has spoken to X-producer Lauren Shuler Donner about essaying the role of Gambit, the card-tossin’, lady-killin’, New Orleans-bein’-from superhero beloved by children of the ’90s and generally loathed by the older siblings of the children of the ’90s. (Speaking as the former: He’s our Dazzler.) READ FULL STORY

The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'Terminator 2: Judgment Day'

The Terminator came out in 1984. Terminator 2: Judgment Day arrived seven years later. In the interim, Arnold Schwarzenegger became a new kind of action megastar, headlining a string of era-defining beefcake blockbusters. Commando, Predator, The Running Man, and Total Recall: The very titles echo down through history, dripping with gunsmoke and bicep sweat. But that era was coming to an end. The ’80s were over. Always a savvy operator, Schwarzenegger was already planning his pivot: Twins and Kindergarten Cop offered a kinder, gentler Arnold. (He loves kids! He loves De Vito!) READ FULL STORY
