Zoe Saldana on her hero, 'strong female characters,' and playing real women (and aliens)

Zoe Saldana knows how to play ass-kicking, universe-saving, unusually colorful heroes like Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy, Neytiri in Avatar, and Uhura in Star Trek. But for her new AOL web series, Saldana turned the camera on everyday people who play the role of the hero.

In My Hero, which debuted yesterday, Saldana and some of her fellow celebrities—including Julianne Hough, Nick Cannon and Maria Menounos—pay tribute to the people they cherish via short, touching vignettes. “People are generally very grateful to the people around them that keep them together, that supported them, that encouraged them to become what they are as artists,” the actress says. “So we thought, what a great opportunity to do a show about this and send a very positive message out there. Because I find it hard to believe that anybody makes it on their own. There’s always somebody that helped you in some way.”

In the interview below, Saldana tells EW about how her hero (spoiler: it’s her mom) inspired her to make a habit of playing rather… ethereal characters. The actress also talks about balancing the upcoming sequels to her three big franchises with motherhood (she’s pregnant with twins!), why movies need more real women—not strong ones—and why we should stop saying the word “ethnic.” READ FULL STORY

Lily Collins is the most 'dangerous' celeb search

If you’re curious about Lily Collins and head to the Internet to find out, beware — McAfee has ranked the actress as the most dangerous celeb to search for online.

Collins — who starred in movies such as Mirror, Mirror and The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones — posed the biggest risk of landing on a malicious site, according to the computer security company; last year, Emma Watson topped the list.

Female celebrities were the overwhelming lure to malware; Avril Lavigne, Sandra Bullock, Kathy Griffin, and Zoe Saldana rounded out the top five; Mad Men star Jon Hamm was the only man in the top 10.

A person could be led to malware after doing a general search and clicking on dubious links, but risks increased when searchers added phrases like “free apps” or “nude photos.”

Your party is a wonderland: 'Vanity Fair' Paramount portrait is an A-list playground

Well, I just lost my afternoon. In honor of Paramount’s 100th anniversary, Vanity Fair has “assembled 116 of the greatest talents ever to work at the studio.” That means Leo, Bob, and Marty, some icons of the studio’s golden age (hello, Eva Marie Saint, Jerry Lewis, and Michael York!), almost the entire casts of Transformers and Star Trek, and even that Canadian whippersnapper Justin Bieber, whom you might remember from a little indie film called Never Say Never. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg (Titanic zing, hey-yo!).

Because Vanity Fair knows you want to see every one of those 116 faces up close and personal, they’ve installed a zoom function on their site. Fair warning, PopWatchers: This thing is addictive. Click through at your own risk. Below, we scope out a few of the famous faces and hand out our portrait honors. READ FULL STORY

Golden Globes fashion: Will Charlize Theron reclaim her crown?

There’s a lot to look forward to when it comes to Sunday’s Golden Globes: the awards, the gags, the acceptance speeches. But my attention is firmly focused on the red carpet fashion, particularly because this year marks the return of Charlize Theron and her chic wardrobe.

While, in the past few years, stars like Emma Stone, Zoe Saldana, and Mila Kunis have owned the red carpet (and rightfully so), Charlize was the reigning fashionista back before they started topping best dressed lists left and right. And now, thanks to her performance in Young Adult, she’s back and hopefully, ready to reclaim her title.

If you need a refresher of just how fabulous Charlize has proven to be on the red carpet, check out her bold Vera Wang gown from the 2000 Oscars or her shimmering Gucci number from the 2004 awards (both pictured below): READ FULL STORY
