She might not get paid as much as Iron Man, but there’s no doubt that celestial beauty Angelina Jolie is smiling all the way to the bank. This year, Jolie topped Forbes‘ annual list of the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood with an incredibly robust $33 million. Though her last big-budget feature was the much maligned The Tourist back in 2010, Jolie has spent the past few years developing, writing and directing flicks such as In the Land of Blood and Honey and the upcoming Unbroken, and even found time to film Disney’s Maleficent. You see, Angelina Jolie is so wealthy that she can basically stop acting, develop some very small indie flicks and still make money. READ FULL STORY
Tag: Emma Stone (1-10 of 49)
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is a sequel to a reboot of a franchise based on a five-decade-old comic book. As a result, it can be difficult to talk about major story points in the movie.
Some of us spent our childhoods reading back issues of Spider-Man. Some people spent their childhoods doing other things — playing sports, watching American Gladiators, fencing, just generally doing everything besides reading back issues of Spider-Man. As a result, I feel it’s necessary to preface this post with a SPOILER WARNING, although it’s also mandatory to point out that this is technically a 40-YEAR-OLD SPOILER WARNING. See, if you’re anyone who has any knowledge of Spider-Man lore, this news is just too intriguing to pass up:

'Divergent' fun: Which faction would Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Lawrence and more celebs be placed in?
Divergent superfans, this one is for you. At the beginning of setting up this dystopian adventure, readers learn that all the people living in this world are sorted into five different factions when they come of age. An aptitude test helps place them, but the final decision is theirs (sounds wonderfully familiar, right?). While Beatrice, Caleb and all the rest had a tough decision to make, we got to thinking about where some Hollywood celebs would find themselves if they suddenly woke up in this world. Here are our best guesses for Jennifer Lawrence (Honest!), Lady Gaga (Brave!) and more.
Abnegation (the Selfless)
Angelina Jolie: Sure, she’s got her detractors, but she’s still one of Hollwood’s most famous do-gooders. The actress has traveled to Cambodia, Sierra Leone and many, many other places to speak and help with her main cause: refugees. She’s even a Goodwill Ambassador who has none other than Hillary Clinton as an admirer. READ FULL STORY
Looking for another bad-on-purpose-but-even-so-we’re-going-to-sing-it-for-three-minutes song about boobs at next year’s Academy Awards? Sorry, Charlie — Seth MacFarlane isn’t interested in a repeat hosting performance:
MacFarlane’s decision to follow Ricky Gervais’s awards show lead must be disappointing for the 46 percent of EW readers who think the Family Guy creator did a great job on Sunday — not to mention ABC, which must be pleased with the show’s high ratings (40.3 million viewers, up 3 percent from last year, with an 11 percent increase in adults 18-49). It also means that next year’s hosting field is wide open — though that said, there are a few frontrunners for the gig.
Whether they’re dancing half-naked on national TV or playing undercover cops in a film, the chemistry between these couples is undeniable. And with a superhero, the “sexiest man alive,” and an all-star on our list, it only makes sense that these studs’ other halves would be perfectly content with the match-up.
Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield, The Amazing Spider-Man
Stone and Garfield made such a convincing super couple in the film that they were ”bitten” off-screen as well. Their chemistry was palpable anytime they shared a scene, especially during their romantic rooftop kiss when the webslinger swept Gwen Stacy off her dainty feet.
Now that you’ve cast your ballot for the president of the United States, it’s time to turn you attention to another, equally important competition: the People’s Choice Awards. With categories ranging from “favorite movie” to “favorite music fan following,” your voice needs to heard.
Maroon 5 frontman and The Voice judge Adam Levine leads the list of nominees with six nods in both the music and television categories, while Justin Bieber is the top individual nominee with five music nods. The two artists with will go head-to-head in the favorite album and favorite music video categories, forcing you to choose between the two men with the best head of hair and the highest pitched voice in the industry. Too bad Justin Timberlake isn’t in the running. READ FULL STORY
If only Spider-Man could dance his way out of the The Lizard’s clutches.
Andrew Garfield swung by Ellen — the episode airs today — debuting some new facial hair (Yay? Nay? Undecided?), as well as some new, not-Spidey-affiliated moves (Definitely yay!).
After talking about the planned sequel to Amazing Spider-Man, Garfield got down…to charity work. In support of Worldwide Orphans, Garfield agreed to perform various dance moves. Each correct dance in :45 seconds raised $1000 for WWO.
The best part is that even after the buzzer rang, Garfield kept going: There are still dances to perform and money to raise! And it’s a good thing he can’t be tamed: Without him powering on, we never would have gotten to see his 100% commitment to belly dancing — shirt lifting included. READ FULL STORY
Just 24 short years ago, eminent comedienne and Hollywood muse Emma Stone came into the world. Since then, the sometimes-blonde, sometimes-redhead, always-adorable starlet has consistently graced the movie world with her impeccable comic timing and that irresistibly smoky voice.
They wanted to move us. And oh, did they know how.
The highlight of the Stand Up to Cancer telethon helmed by Gwyneth Paltrow and a cast of A-list celebrities Friday at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles was Taylor Swift’s ode to a cancer victim, a 3-year-old boy named Ronan.
If you’re not getting emotional yet, Swift did it for you. The 22-year-old country singer struggled to hold back tears as she sang the touching ballad she wrote after reading a mom’s blog about losing her little boy to neuroblastoma last year. The song begins, “I remember your bare feet down the hallway, I remember your little laugh…”
The audience of Hollywood elite, cancer survivors, and fans choked up as they listened to this and other testimonies aimed at inspiring donors to give funds to the Stand Up to Cancer organization.
