Here’s The First Look At Cameron Diaz As Miss Hannigan In “Annie”

My, Miss Hannigan, how you have changed. Cameron Diaz tweeted a pic of herself in character for the "Annie" remake rocking big hoops, red lips and long, dark talons.

"Annie" is being rebooted with Willow Smith in the lead role and new songs by Jay-Z. Warner Brothers is currently working on a remake of "The Bodyguard," the Whitney Houston classic. Kate Winslet recently…

Frisky Q&A: Norwegian Pop Star Annie On Her Tunes, Clothes, And Guys

Norwegian singer/songwriter/DJ Annie is the kind of woman who looks like an off-duty model, but also has a huge record collection and likes wearing a sweater with a penis print on it to business meetings.
