Julia Stiles Says There Are Plenty Of Roles For Women In Hollywood But They Are Stunted

Actress Julia Stiles recently sat down to talk with Hilary Reinsberg of BuzzFeed’s new site, SHIFT about her new role in Blue, one of the series on the new Wigs channel, a new project led by directors Jon Avnet and Rodrigo Garcia, that brings scripted dramas to YouTube. When asked about the quality of roles in movies and television for women, Julia feels that there are plenty but they are always the same. She told Reinsberg: ”I don’t feel that way in terms of quantity — I think there are interesting roles for women in movies and television, but they tend to just play one thing. So they’re the mother or the daughter or the girlfriend or the wife, and the difference for me in this role was that you see the character in all aspects of her life. You see her in many different roles — as the mom, the daughter, the friend, the co-worker, the escort.” More »

Hallmark's William and Catherine: A Royal Romance Basically Stole the Plot of The Prince and Me

A pampered prince tries to live a normal life at university and finds himself entranced with a spunky commoner that the Royal Family will never accept as a princess. Why does this story sound so familiar? You might think it’s because William and Catherine: A Royal Romance is the second made-for-TV movie about Prince William and Kate Middleton — but it’s actually because it has the exact same plot as the 2004 Julia Stiles movie The Prince and Me.

Colin Hanks Lands 'Dexter' Role--Could He Be the Season 6 Big Bad?
