The First “Into The Woods” Trailer Has Arrived

The first trailer for "Into The Woods" is here, and it gives us pretty much nothing to work with. There's no singing, which is a little odd considering that this movie is supposed to be a musical. There's also no Johnny Depp, and about three seconds worth of words. Not impressed so far. I'm already…

“The Giver” Trailer Is Out & It’s Kinda Underwhelming

I've been waiting for Lois Lowry's YA novel The Giver to be made into a movie ever since I was a kid reading the book 100 times. It's not until my adulthood that I got my wish and I have to say, judging from today's trailer, disappointment.  I know it is just a…

Meryl Streep Reads A Traffic Report As A Woman In Labor

Meryl Streep is probably the greatest actress we've ever known. She can play any character thrown at her.

Meryl Streep & Others Remember Margaret Thatcher

"Margaret Thatcher was a pioneer, willingly or unwillingly, for the role of women in politics. Her hard-nosed fiscal measures took a toll on the poor, and her hands-off approach to financial regulation led to great wealth for others. There is an argument that her steadfast, almost emotional loyalty to the pound sterling has helped the UK…

Jennifer Lawrence Explains Her “I Beat Meryl” Golden Globes Acceptance Speech

Poor Jennifer Lawrence. She wins a Golden Globe for her performance in "Silver Linings Playbook" and yet all anyone can talk about is how she "dissed" Meryl Streep in her acceptance speech. When Lawrence popped on stage to receive her reward, the…

Meryl Streep Plays “Shun, Shag Or Marry”

Saucy little minx Meryl Streep hit up "Watch What Happens Live" for a rousing game of Shun, Shag or Marry with her ex-costars. The options were Robert Redford, Jack Nicholson and Dustin Hoffman. Personally I would have chosen Redford to shag and that offer will remain open until he's dead. [Bravo TV]…

The Meryl Streep Look Book

There's no question that Meryl Streep has displayed incredible consistency as a powerhouse actress — this Sunday will mark her seventeenth Academy Award nomination — but style-wise, she's been a bit all over the map.

Meryl Streep Gifted With Nesting Doll Filled With Tiny Meryls

What could be better than a bunch of tiny Meryls? Someone gifted Meryl Streep with her very own set of nesting dolls on Tuesday at an "The Iron Lady" press conference in Germany.

We See Chick Flicks: “The Iron Lady”

Starring Meryl Streep, Jim Broadbent, Alexandra Roach, Harry Lloyd Margaret Thatcher was prime minister of the United Kingdom the year I was born (that would be 1984) and remained squired away as a footnote in my memory under "Scary Conservative '80s Politicians (SEE: Ronald Reagan)." I read several British newspapers and I know, nowadays, that…

The Good, The Bad & The WTF At The “The Iron Lady” Premiere

A little birdie (that would be me) attended the New York City premiere of "The Iron Lady" last night and boy, were there a lot of celebs!

Amanda Seyfried Compares Herself To Meryl Streep

“Meryl [Streep] makes herself very accessible right away, almost too accessible. That’s what I do. And it totally works. My thing about meeting people—men, women, people in general—is to desensitize them, kind of shock them a little bit, to make myself accessible.” -- Amanda Seyfried on how to win friends and influence people i…
