inding a balance between life at the office and life at home is one of the great challenges of adulthood; often, blurring the lines by devoting more time to one more than the other can cause life-changing shifts, and more often than not those shifts affect our personal relationships rather than our work ethic.
This September, the delicacy of that work-life balance comes to the big screen in ”The Words.” The film stars Bradley Cooper as a young writer who, among other poor decisions, places his ambition and success above his relationship with his wife (Zoe Saldana). Check out the trailer above.
It’s a theme we see often in Hollywood relationships; high-profile couples divorce because their work lives had them too far apart for too long, or their drives to be successful outweigh their drives to make love last. However, there are some celebrity pairs that really exemplify what it means to strike the perfect balance between work and romance, and for that we’re completely jealous. Read more…
Want to see an advance screening of Universal’s upcoming comedy “Pitch Perfect”? We’re giving YOU the chance to watch the movie next week! The first 10 people to RSVP to the screenings available in each city (New York, Los Angeles-area, and San Francisco-area) will get First In Line passes for themselves and a friend (so 20 passes per city are up for grabs). But move quick, because the tickets will go fast and once 10 people have RSVP’d per city, that screening will close! So, RSVP here, print out your tickets, and don’t forget to arrive at least 30 minutes before the screening.
About “Pitch Perfect”: Beca (Anna Kendrick) is that girl who’d rather listen to what’s coming out of her headphones than what’s coming out of you. Arriving at her new college, she finds herself not right for any clique but somehow is muscled into one that she never would have picked on her own: alongside mean girls, sweet girls and weird girls whose only thing in common is how good they sound when they sing together, in the new out-loud comedy “Pitch Perfect.”
When Mo Gelber took an impromptu photo of the couple being hauled off by the cops a few weeks ago, he didn’t think much of it. Then he entered the photo in a contest run by Ron Howard, and got pretty far. But! He needed the couple in the picture to sign a release allowing him to use their image in order to move forward in the rounds. He somehow got ahold of the chic, blonde girl, Alexis Creque, but Creque refuses to give up the name of her boyfriend.

I’ve got to hand it to the Brits for taking reality TV to a whole different level. Ashleigh and her Border Collie/Bichon Frise/Chinese crested mix, Pudsey, winners of “Britain’s Got Talent,” are hosts of a new show called “Top Dog Model.”
NOT A JOKE. It’s exactly what you think it is: “America’s Next Top Model” for dogs. A panel of judges including Ashley and Pudsey, “X Factor” contestant Stacey Solomon, fashion model Lilah Parsons and Hollywood dog agent Addison Witt will test the most poised pups in the country as they go paw-to-paw in dog modeling challenges. In the end, only one canine will have what it takes to be crowned “Top Dog Model.” The winner will be awarded an advertising campaign for a well-known brand. I assume a dog modeling contract and photo spread in Dog Fancy Magazine or something is also part of the prize package. Keep reading »
Everyone else is as sick of the “Twilight” movies as I am, right? We’re just ready for this long national nightmare to be over. A second “Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2″ trailer debuted last night at the MTV VMAs, revealing how the budget for creepy contact lenses in this second movie was through the roof. And it’s weird to see Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart onscreen together after this summer of discontent. It’s going to be a long, uncomfortable autumn of movie promotion and frankly I’d love to put that behind us as well.
