The Trailer For This Is 40 Makes The Knocked Up Sequel Look Promising

The Trailer For This Is 40 Makes The Knocked Up Sequel Look Promising

Way back when Judd Apatow announced he would be making This is 40,  semi-sequel to the hit film Knocked Up about Debbie (Leslie Mann) and Pete’s (Paul Rudd) family, I worried that it would just be Debbie complaining about how much her marriage sucked for two straight hours while Seth Rogen smoked out of a bong in the backyard. But after watching the first trailer for the movie, I’m actually kind of excited.

The Cast Of Girls Keeps It DIY At Their NYC Premiere With Hand-Completed Signs

The Cast Of Girls Keeps It DIY At Their NYC Premiere With Hand-Completed Signs

Whoever’s in charge of marketing HBO’s hotly anticipated Lena Dunham/Judd Apatow collaboration Girls is doing a good job making their social media presence fit the show’s “indie” aesthetic. Exhibit A: at last night’s NYC premiere, rather than hire a professional photographer to take and upload pictures of the cast and crew looking awesome on the red carpet, they took what appeared to be camera phone pictures for a gallery called “The cast shares their Unfiltered GIRLS Moments on the Red Carpet of the Girls Premiere in New York .” They also gave everyone signs with phrases they had to complete themselves, which served both to introduce the cast and hint at what their characters might be like. Let’s take a look at what some of them came up with. More »

Allison Williams Isn’t Carrie Bradshaw, But She Does a Mean Kate Middleton Impression

Allison Williams Isn't Carrie Bradshaw, But She Does a Mean Kate Middleton Impression

The following is a guest post from our friends at Luckymag.com.

When Allison Williams stopped by Lucky’s office recently, we were immediately taken with her style. She had that kind of refined, good girl look—casually chic in her Marc by Marc Jacobs shirtdress and Tory Burch wedges—that seems to come naturally to graduates of elite East Coast collegiate institutions. (She went to Yale.) But don’t roll your eyes at her privileged pedigree, Williams is down-to-earth and just plain funny: Witness her impression of Kate Middleton in her self-written Funnyordie.com mini-series. More »

Why Can’t Anne Hathaway Always Be This Funny?

Why Can't Anne Hathaway Always Be This Funny?

I still remember going to a press junket a few years ago and hearing the other reporters talk about how Anne Hathaway was bitchy while promoting her latest movie. I was crestfallen — this was Mia Thermopolis from The Princess Diaries, Andy from The Devil Wears Prada! Though she was six years older than me, I’d basically grown up with her as her career took off. More »

Girl Crushable: Megan Fox

Girl Crushable: Megan Fox

Hear me out.

I’m probably the closest thing to a Megan Fox apologist: I’ll insist to anyone that she was one of the best things about Jennifer’s Body because of how she embodied the deadly teen queen but was still vulnerable and downright hilarious. Unfortunately, she’s received a ton of bad press lately, mostly for getting herself herself kicked off Transformers: Dark of the Moon after she complained about Michael Bay‘s dictatorial directing. Girlfriend, that is the smartest thing you could’ve done. More »

Hey Judd Apatow, How About Some Movies About Both Men and Women?

Hey Judd Apatow, How About Some Movies About Both Men and Women?


Judd Apatow
was on Chelsea Lately last night promoting his new movie Bridesmaids, the producer’s positively-reviewed first foray into the genre of lady comedy. In his discussion of the flick, Judd told Chelsea Handler he now thinks women are funnier than men, but also lamented the lack of porn and dick jokes on the set — the norm when he’s shooting with an all-dude cast. Chelsea handled (pun unavoidable) the remark deftly, explaining that women can be filthy too, although they might have the good sense to hide that fact from the man who hired them and stands to give them more work in the future.
