15 Lessons Learned From Strong Heroines

Today two powerful leading ladies make a bang on the big screen as Kate Beckinsale returns as badass vampire Selene in “Underworld: Awakening” and real-life powerhouse MMA fighter Gina Carano stars in “Haywire.” And these heroines join the ranks of some of the most kickass female characters to grace the pages of comic books and shine on the silver screen.

But each of these strong women is more than just a pretty face. With supernatural strength and street smarts, these strong characters represent female empowerment and the ability for a woman to be in charge of her own fate. Whether you’re like Wonder Woman flying solo or you’ve got a solid group behind you like Jem & The Holograms, each of these heroines with an action-packed history has given us lessons to incorporate in our everyday lives. Now get ready to show your own demons who’s boss! Read more…

Face-Off: Lindsay Lohan & Megan Fox Fight To Play Elizabeth Taylor

Lilo Loves Liz
The actress is hoping to play Taylor in a Lifetime movie. Read More »

Oh, I cringe. I’m sure you’ve already heard about the upcoming Lifetime made-for-TV movie called “Liz and Dick,” chronicling the trials and tribulations of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton’s on-again off-again marriage and life together. Lindsay Lohan was the first actress revealed to be in talks for the role last week, directly from the mouth of the film’s executive producer Larry Thompson. Rumor has it Lindsay would die for the role, and who wouldn’t? Now it’s looking like Lohan, who hasn’t had an acting role since she appeared in 2010′s “Machete,” is going to be facing some pretty tight competition in the form of one Megan Fox. I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed that neither of these actresses scores the part when the contract is signed as early as next week. For the love of Liz! [Celeb Dirty Laundry]

I was lucky enough to attend one of the final LCD Soundsystem shows this past spring, and it was nothing short of a religious experience. Perched above the stage at Terminal 5, my friends and I were entranced as LCD frontman James Murphy delivered a raucous two-hour dance punk sermon, swimming through a powerful set list of love, lust, pain and forgiveness. The new film “Shut Up and Play the Hits” chronicles Murphy’s decision to end the band, the band’s final shows and the personal moments of the very private frontman. I can’t wait to watch all over again. [YouTube]

You know, I’m generally not into the beefcake look, but I would make an exception for Channing Tatum. EW.com just posted a few new, exclusive photos from the upcoming film “Magic Mike,” the seemingly highbrow film from director Steven Soderbergh about male strippers, and I suddenly have a hankering to do laundry. On Channing’s impeccable washboard abs. What? I have to lust after someone since I am banned from popping a girl boner over you know who. Check out a few more photos at the link! [EW.com]

Jennifer Westfeldt is some kind of voodoo witch doctor sorcerer. Not only has she captured the heart of Jon Hamm, but she has also written and directed a romantic comedy with an ensemble cast and, you guys, you’re not going to slit your wrists while watching it. “Friends With Kids” comes out March 9 and stars Jennifer, her manpiece, Kristen Wiig (!), Maya Rudolph (!), Chris O’Dowd (!!!!!), Adam Scott (!), and Edward Burns (!!!!!). That’s like half of the “Bridesmaids” crew, which is why it actually looks funny. Goddamn, woman. How did you keep Katharine Heigl from being cast in this? Burning crosses and heads on stakes?  [YouTube]
