I often wonder aloud how the guy from Klaxons, a terrible band, managed to score babe Keira Knightley, but that is neither here nor there. Keira’s long-running tenure as, you know, Elizabeth Swan paved the way for her public entity, but in the last few years she’s really proved herself as one to be watched,… More »
Confession: I have never read Anna Karenina. Is that, like, a weird thing? Has everybody read it except me? If that’s the case, then don’t spoil the whole thing for me quite yet, because the trailer for the new film adaptation just came out and I am feeling it. I love period films, high society,… More »

Probably the biggest movie this holiday season? Unquestionably “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.” And as such, its star, Rooney Mara, is on the brink of major mega stardom.

“I actually said to him before we shot the spanking scenes, ‘If you touch me I will kill you’ and he did remind me that I was tied to a bed at the time and really I shouldn’t be making any threats. … [those scenes] weren’t particularly easy.”

The anti-violence PSA starring Keira Knightley that we shared with you earlier this month won’t be airing.
