The last two movies I’ve seen Liv Tyler in, she’s been the central female character, and a weak one at that: A former drug addict who’s been rescued by a sweet man but finds herself easily falling under the control of a controlling yet seductive jerk thanks to her docile personality.

Still, we have a couple of questions for director Michael Vaughn about his X-men reboot. More
We guess you could watch this video of Kevin Bacon becoming a “rapper” – Or we could just go ahead and tell you that he means “wrapper.” (Something something six degrees from Joaquin Phoenix.) (OMG)
