Diablo Cody On Directing: A Woman Is “Expected To Constantly Prove Yourself”

"As a woman you're still expected to constantly prove yourself, whereas men are allowed to have flops without people blaming it on their gender. If a man has a flop, people will blame it on a variety of factors. But if a woman directs a movie and it doesn't do well, suddenly it's because she'…

Diablo Cody Says Feminists “Should Be Up My Butt”

"Any feminist out there who doesn't support me gets a big boo because you've got one person out there who is advocating for women in Hollywood and you're going to slag that person?

Diablo Cody Wanted To Create A “Beloved” Female “Anti-Hero”

"The conventional knowledge in Hollywood is that an unsympathetic female character can tank a movie. I’m hoping that’s not true. I’m knocking on wood really emphatically right now but honestly I have a lot of theories sometimes I wonder if it comes down to mommy issues. The idea of a cold, unlikeable woman or a…

We See Chick Flicks: “Young Adult”

Starring Charlie Theron, Patton Oswalt, Patrick Wilson & Elizabeth Reaser Written by Diablo Cody and directed by Jason Reitman I went into a screening of "Young Adult" already anticipating that I would love it.

Diablo Cody Says She Suffers From “Imposter Syndrome”

"I think women in particular -- and, in fact, I'm acting as if this is my original thought, it's on the Internet that women in particular are more susceptible to imposter syndrome, and for some reason, it's very rare in men.

Casting The “Sweet Valley High” Movie

When I heard that Diablo Cody had signed on to write the big-screen version of my beloved Sweet Valley High series, I died a little inside. In a good way. You see, I'm such a hardcore SVH fan that I collect the series and read them on the regular. I am still not over the…

Diablo Cody Says “Sweet Valley High” Movie Will Be “Wonderfully Nostalgic”

"I want it to be wonderfully nostalgic. I want it to be to the '80s what 'American Graffiti' was to the [early] '60s. I want it to be looking back on a really cool time and enjoying yourself and I want it to be glamorous and colorful and bubblegum and a feast for the senses. That'…

Diablo Cody’s New Flick “Young Adult” Takes Some Risks

Say what you will about the choices Diablo Cody has made as a result of her fame from "Juno," but the woman takes risks — huge risks — with what she puts out there.

Diablo Cody Talks Trailer Trash With Megan Fox

I'm so into the idea of Diablo Cody's new web series, Red Band Trailer, where she invites celebs like Chelsea Handler, Jason Bateman, and Megan Fox to her Airstream trailer to talk trash with them.

Quotable: Adam Brody Has A Message For Kristen Stewart

"It's only gotten worse, I'm sure, being a celebrity. At the same time, I don't have a lot of patience for people who moan about it too much. Because there are many things you could do. It's like, quit ... you don't need to be an actor, so it's like if it's that much of…

OK people, fess up. You've read a Sweet Valley High book. Some of you may have breezed through all 152 tomes, while others of you may have stopped in for classics like Elizabeth's Super-Selling Lemonade or Jessica Quits the Squad.
