Britney Spears tells Ellen the truth about kissing Ryan Gosling -- VIDEO

Ever curious what Britney, Justin, Ryan, Christina, and the rest of the Mouseketeers did behind the scenes of The Mickey Mouse Club in the ’90s?

Well, apparently, they participated in what now can be considered the best game of spin the bottle — ever. Britney Spears dropped by Ellen to discuss her upcoming residency at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas and her new album, Britney Jean. But she was sure to clear up any rumors about her childhood and the naughty game.

Though Ryan Gosling claimed he and Britney had kissed while playing, Britney denied it, claiming she only kissed her future ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake at the time and Gosling was just unlucky that the bottle never landed on him.

Is Ryan Gosling the only actor who can battle Superman AND defeat Iron Man?

With Warner Bros.’s Comic-Con announcement that Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel Superman follow-up will be inspired by Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, pitting DC Comics’ two biggest heroes against each other in a 2015 summer blockbuster, Christian Bale can expect to field a new wave of questions about his involvement with the Batman franchise. To be fair, he’s put them to rest several times, most emphatically when he recently told EW that he’d really-really retired the cowl. “We were incredibly fortunate to get to make three [Batman films]. That’s enough. Let’s not get greedy,” Bale said. “[The role of Batman] is a torch that should be handed from one actor to another. So I enjoy looking forward to what somebody else will come up with.”

Of course, that won’t stop months and months of hopeful speculation that it will ultimately be Bale’s grip around Henry Cavill’s throat — until the day TMZ finally posts the first on-set images of some new actor as Batman. In The Dark Knight Rises, Bale’s Bruce Wayne explained his M.O. to Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s mysterious cop: “The idea was to be a suit. Batman could be anybody. That was the point.” If only that were true. For a generation of moviegoers, Bale is Batman, and the idea of Gordon-Levitt or Armie Hammer — who was poised to play Batman in George Miller’s canceled Justice League movie in 2007 — behind the mask simply lacks the same amount of credibility and excitement. Warner/Legendary/DC could try and lure Bale back with a Robert Downey Jr.-Iron Man financial offer, but if he declines, they need to think big, because even if the Dark Knight battles Superman in the next movie, the real rival is Disney/Marvel. The new Batman can’t be a build-our-own star like Andrew Garfield or Ryan Reynolds — not when the other side has Downey leading the Avengers. Cavill capably wore the cape in Man of Steel, but he’s not yet on the same fame footing as Chris Hemsworth or Chris Evans, much less Downey. The new Batman not only has to fill Bale’s shoes, but he has to go toe-to-toe with Downey in the cool department. The list of actors who could do both is pretty short, and it basically starts and ends with Ryan Gosling. READ FULL STORY

Who should play Edward Snowden?

EDWARD-SNOWDEN.jpg

You know it’s coming.

The moment you saw The Guardian‘s riveting video interview (below) with the 29-year-old kinda-hot globe-trotting NSA leaker, you knew: Sooner or later, there is going to be a movie about Edward Snowden.

It might be in theaters. It might be on HBO. It could be a Silkwood-like tragedy or an All the Presidents Men-style procedural drama. But there will be something. Because everything about this story, so far, is Hollywood-bait. There’s a timely controversial issue (digital privacy), real-life spy on the run, high-tech snooping and that classic based-on-a-true-story trope: One man — allegedly an idealist — battling the system.

Most of all, there’s Snowden himself — Hero? Traitor? Or just, as Snowden says, ‘an American’? Take any side you like, but there’s no denying Snowden has been a surprisingly articulate spokesperson for his own cause and has generated a flurry of “Team Edward” online admirers. Plus, how many real-life whistleblowers ditch a hot pole-dancing girlfriend?

So let’s cast this as-yet-nonexistent movie. Here’s some names we thought of: Daniel Radcliffe, Aaron Paul, Ryan Gosling, Tobey Maguire, Alexander Skarsgard, Jamie Bell, Eric Balfour, Elijah Wood, Josh Radnor and Justin Timberlake. Also, we should add Shia LaBeouf, since he apparently already revealed this surveillance program years ago. (One request to producers: Let Jesse Eisenberg sit this one out, okay?)

Vote in our poll below. You can also make your own suggestions by filling out our comment form … or just type it into Google or Facebook and we’ll ask the NSA what you searched for.

'Ryan Gosling Won't Eat His Cereal' creator talks inspiration: 'So I was watching 'Drive' and eating cereal one day...'

Hey girl: Even if you think you’ve hit Ryan Gosling Meme exhaustion (the cure? Watch Drive, then you’re good to go again) you’re going to want to check out what the entire Internet has been obsessing about for the past 24 hours: Ryan Gosling Won’t Eat His Cereal Vines. The Vines (which, for the Internet clueless, are six-second looping videos) are exactly what they sound like: Just a spoonful of cereal slowing inching towards Gosling’s beautiful – but also sometimes tortured, angry, bloodied, hurt – face on a television screen.

Below, check out one of our favorites and then read EW’s email Q&A with creator Ryan McHenry. READ FULL STORY

MTV Movie Awards: 10 all-time greatest moments -- VIDEO

Tonight, MTV will broadcast its 21st annual Movie Awards. Truth: Twenty years ago, the golden popcorn for Best Movie went to A Few Good Men (following that: Menace II Society, Pulp Fiction, and Se7en). Safe to say, the show’s tone has changed pretty dramatically from those edgy early days when Dennis Miller hosted and Denzel Washington won Best Male Performance for Malcolm X. (I personally trace the trajectory shift back to the short-lived decision to create a Best Sandwich in a Movie category in 1996.) Yet even as the show’s gotten more mainstream (read: Twilight- and Hunger Games-saturated), it’s never failed to churn out cultural flashpoints that have ranged from steamy to awkward, subversive to surreal, and everything in between. Below, we run down the 10 most memorable moments.

PopWatch Planner: 'Game of Thrones' and 'Doctor Who' return, Katherine's back on 'The Vampire Diaries', and more

We might as well call this premiere week. Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, and The Voice are all back. Nashville returns from a long hiatus. Oh, and that movie where Ryan Gosling has a ton of tattoos that you’ve been thinking might be cool to check out is finally here.

Whether you’re planning an elaborate Game of Thrones party, still debating the Vampire Diaries dilemma that ended so many friendships, or just plotting the best possible way to get Matt Smith your phone number, this week has something for everyone. And we do mean everyone! We start with a salute to strong female characters from Broadway musicals and end with a show where the likelihood of blood (and/or sex) is 100%. Here’s what to do for the days in between.

SUNDAY
Kristin Chenoweth: The Dames of Broadway… All of ‘Em, 8 p.m., PBS

OK, hear me out. There are just so many TV options on Sunday! Revenge, The Walking Dead, The Good Wife, Once Upon a Time! So, you’re going to watch your favorite. But if you choose to DVR any other show, why not give Chenoweth a chance! She’s got charm, pizzazz, and oh man that VOICE.

MONDAY
The Voice, 8 p.m., NBC

Speaking of voices, the best use of spinning chairs on television returns. We’re all excited to see if Shakira and Usher can carry their weight as judges. Plus, we get to hear a pretty seductive version of ”Sexy and I Know It.”

TUESDAY
The Mindy Project, 9:30 p.m., Fox

Ellie Kemper guest stars! We can only hope that she becomes a regular on the show next season after The Office ends. Maybe if we all ask hard enough, Kemper and Kaling will bring their pop group, Subtle Sexuality, to the show eventually.

WEDNESDAY
Nashville, 10 p.m., NBC

After a month off, we get to find out what’s up with Scarlett and Gunnar! Let’s hope it’s steamy.


THURSDAY
The Vampire Diaries, 8 p.m., The CW

Klaus is shirtless. Caroline’s looking vengeful. We get the Katherine vs. Elena (sans humanity) scene we’ve been waiting for. Plus, we’re kind of loving Rebekah and Elena as partners in crime, right?


FRIDAY
The Place Beyond the Pines hits theaters

Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper, Eva Mendez, and Rose Bryne star in this movie about fathers and sons directed by Derek Cianfrance (Blue Valentine). Come for Ryan Gosling’s abs, stay for his (and Cooper’s) strong acting. Watch some scenes from the movie here to get excited.

SATURDAY
Doctor Who, 8 p.m., BBC America

You saw our two covers, paper dolls, and exclusive video, now it’s time for the premiere. How is Clara going to fare as a companion? Will she be able to fill the Pond-sized hole in our hearts? And who exactly is she? Be prepared to get taken through space and time by a man in a bow-tie.

SUNDAY
Game of Thrones, 9 p.m., HBO

We’ve been preparing for this for a while and we know you have too. If the epic trailer, which basically looks like a movie, doesn’t make you want to watch consider this: Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) goes ”dragon fishing” on a sea voyage.

Ryan Gosling joins long line of directors who have cast their wives and girlfriends in movies

Earlier this month, Ryan Gosling cast girlfriend Eva Mendes in his directorial debut, How to Catch a Monster. With production on the fantasy film set to begin this May, Gosling is a few months away from the joys and challenges of directing a significant other.

But Gosling is hardly the first director to cast his sweetheart in his own movie. Woody Allen is famous for dating (and sometimes marrying) many of his leading ladies, and Paul Newman also directed wife Joanne Woodward in multiple films.

Here’s a round-up of other men who have directed their actress significant others — some of whom are still going strong, while others’ relationships are in the rear-view mirror.

Paul W.S. Anderson and Milla Jovovich
This couple met while working on 2002’s Resident Evil. Since they began dating in 2003 (with a wedding following in 2009), Anderson and Jovovich have made four more films in the lucrative zombie franchise. The British director also cast his wife in his 2011 adaptation of The Three Musketeers.
Anderson on directing Jovovich: “I always call her the hardest working person in show business. I’ve never met an actor as dedicated as she is. She’s like the Terminator, relentless. It can be 2 a.m. in the morning, and she suggests we talk about some aspect of the film. How about we don’t, Milla? But we both just love making movies.” [Huffington Post]
Jovovich on working with Anderson: “I tell Paul every day, he spoils me. It is such a pleasure. We have our family together. We do these fun movies together. What am I going to do when I have to go work with somebody else?” [Huffington Post]
Are they still together? Yep. And they’re planning to continue their working relationship too — both are expected to return for a sixth Resident Evil installment. READ FULL STORY

'The Notebook' gets an 'Honest Trailer' makeover -- VIDEO

How many jokes about The Notebook have you heard today? No movie romance of the last ten years has generated more headlines – or aired more times on cable.

So it seems only natural that Screen Junkies would finally release their parody of the Rachel McAdams/Ryan Gosling flick just in time for Valentine’s Day. The trailer explains that The Notebook is there to remind us “no matter how much you love each other, you’re both going to grow old and die,” and that this is the film “that paved the way for people to form unrealistic expectations of their real-life relationships.” That tends to happen when you cast Ryan “Perfection” Gosling in a lead role.

Hey girl: Ryan Gosling brings luckiest audience member ever onstage with him -- VIDEO

You may not know Linda, the luckiest lady of all time, but you’re certainly going to be insanely jealous of her after watching video of Ryan Gosling’s appearance on Conan last night.

Gosling, after sharing that at one point in the late nineties he was in the audience for a talk show (Internet: Find the video!), decided to bring someone up on stage, because he said every audience member is secretly hoping to be on camera. Cue massive audience shrieks. And then — just as you pictured it in your dreams – Gosling walked into the audience, locked eyes with you, and brought you up on stage with him. You know, if you’re Lucky Linda.

He then proceeded to whisper quips into her ear for her to say to O’Brien for the remainder of the interview. Linda: Form a club with the girls who witnessed Gosling break up a street fight and the woman Gosling saved from traffic. There’s no coming back from this high.
