As shown in a recent video, Andrew Garfield is pretty handy with a ball. So it was a natural fit when the Amazing Spider-Man star announced he would serve as the Ambassador of Sport for the Worldwide Orphans Foundation (WWO). Donning pipe cleaner mock-ups of the blue spectacles worn by WWO founder Dr. Jane Aronson, Garfield explained that he was drawn to the Foundation after recently becoming an uncle. Seeing the love and opportunities his brother’s twin sons had, he wanted to give the same chance to children all over the world. “Jane and I are trying to offer these kids… a normal, necessary outlet to be physical,” said Garfield.

A lot of people will tell you that summer is the time to head outside and enjoy Mother Nature. We say, nonsense! Why would you want to mess with the heat and all those ants when you could be sitting in an air-conditioned IMAX theater on July 3, when The Amazing Spider-Man opens? Speaking of Spidey, Marvel’s web-slinging superhero swings his way to the top of our annual Summer Must List issue — your essential guide to all of the best movies, TV, music, and books of the season.
If you notice something different about the masked man on our cover, you’re not alone. Since we last saw him in 2007′s Spider-Man 3, Peter Parker & Co. have undergone some major changes. Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, and Sam Raimi are gone (thanks for the memories, guys!); Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, and Marc Webb are in (the pressure’s on, guys!). In our early look at one of this summer’s most feverishly anticipated tentpoles, we get all of the inside scoop from Garfield, Stone, Webb, and Rhys Ifans — who plays Spidey’s latest onscreen nemesis, Dr. Curt Connors, a.k.a. The Lizard. READ FULL STORY
Jason Reitman’s popular Live Read series is based on a simple equation: Take a screenplay, hand it to a smattering of actors running the gamut from “high-profile” to “awesome emeritus” to “internet famous,” and watch the sparks fly.
Tomorrow, Reitman expands the franchise to New York with a staged reading of The Apartment, and the cast he announced via Twitter should bring the Billy Wilder/I.A.L. Diamond to life splendidly. Paul Rudd and Emma Stone will take over from Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine in the lead roles. Even better, James Woods will play Sheldrake, the sleazy exec originally incarnated by Fred MacMurray. Other cast members include Cara Buono (Mad Men‘s Faye), Tom Cavanaugh (Ed’s Ed), and Lena Dunham (Lena Dunham’s Lena Dunham.) Comedy dudes Jason Sudeikis and David Wain are participating, too!

In case you forgot that she has puckered up to both Ryan Gosling and Andrew Garfield in the last year, Emma Stone visited The Ellen DeGeneres Show today and was asked who was the better kisser. Said Stone, “Apples and oranges, you know?” No, we don’t, Emma. Please elaborate. It was a sexy Sophie’s Choice, really: Her real-life boyfriend, who plays a superhero or the real-life superhero who played her boyfriend. See how she answered below. READ FULL STORY

Octavia Spencer, Paula Patton, and more honored at 'Essence' Magazine's Black Women in Hollywood luncheon
Though the starlets walking the red carpet at Essence magazine’s Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon brought plenty of the previously promised pre-Oscar glam, it was solidarity and sisterly support that took center stage at the main event. “It’s really just a girl power luncheon,” said former Friday Night Lights star Jurnee Smollett. “It’s an opportunity for all of us to celebrate each other, and give each other a bunch of hugs. We say, ‘I love your work, continue what you’re doing, and I’m supporting you.’”
EW was on the scene as Octavia Spencer, Paula Patton, Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes, Kerry Washington, and Pam Grier were honored for their various achievements at the fifth annual luncheon, which also boasted a Whitney Houston tribute led by her Sparkle costar, Jordin Sparks.
