The Judge Was Right To Take Away Daniel’s Custody In Mrs. Doubtfire

The Judge Was Right To Take Away Daniel's Custody In Mrs. Doubtfire

When I watched Mrs. Doubtfire as a child, I totally sided with Daniel Hillard. In fact I sided with him so hard that I hated Sally Field for years to come. “What an uptight bitch,” I thought whenever I saw her in that movie and ANYTHING ELSE. But then, upon a recent rewatch, I realized that she was completely in the right. And that Daniel’s a horrible father. So let’s take a trip back in time to this movie. More »

The First Trailer For The Butler Has Oscar Written All Over It

The First Trailer For The Butler Has Oscar Written All Over It

Why hello, Mr. Oscar. I’ve been wondering when you were finally going to pop back up and grace us with your golden presence this year. Ever since you went home with the likes of Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Lawrence a couple of months ago I’ve barely even heard your name. But now that I’ve watched the first trailer for The Butler, I know you haven’t disappeared entirely. More »

Best News Ever: Matilda Grew Up, Created A Blog And Wrote About How Much Acting Sucks

Child stars usually tend to do two things: stay in the spotlight and burn out in a drug-infused haze of “finally legal” photoshoots or disappear back into the real world, attend college and emerge as functioning adults. Mara Wilson, the child actress  famous for playing Matilda in the 1996 film, did the latter and apparently turned out really great. More »

Robin Williams' Daughter Zelda Writes Open Letter Challenging Nepotism Accusations Hurled At 'Children Of' Actors

“I know many ‘children of’ who are very aware (and usually very self-aware) of the effort it took for their parents to succeed,” Zelda Williams wrote in an open letter posted to Tumblr last night, “as well as the chilly reception they will receive pursuing the same success until they ‘prove themselves.’” More »

The 5 Biggest Tony Award Snubs

The 5 Biggest Tony Award Snubs

All awards shows can be problematic. The Oscars, the Emmys, the Tonys… no matter what the medium, the politics involved often determine who gets nominated and who wins more than the art itself. It’s true that the Tonys usually aren’t quite as bad as, say, the Oscars can be, largely because Broadway is a little more of a niche world than Hollywood; but snubs still happen, though, and this year, there are some pretty spectacular ones in terms of high-profile celebrities getting zilch for their efforts.

Crushable Mother’s Day: Before They Were Famous

Crushable Mother's Day: Before They Were Famous

For Mother’s Day, we asked our moms to tell their favorite stories of celebrity encounters. First up is my lovely mom, Renée Zutter, who lived and worked in New York City in the 1980s and knew all the fun hotspots.

After college my group of girl friends were really missing the bar/restaurant we used to hang out at on campus [at Syracuse University]… our own personal Cheers if you will, where you could go any time of day or night and know someone (or at least recognize the regulars) and feel comfortable.

Soon after we moved to Manhattan our friend Jeff opened what would later become the first hip exercise studio, but at the time he was hurting for clients and hit us up to come once a week to take one of his classes. After sweating it up that first Thursday night we went across the street to a neighborhood bar/restaurant to eat and drink back all the calories we had just lost. This soon became a ritual, every Thursday night, same time, same place. Same people. More »

Meet the Fockers not withstanding, Robbie isn’t exactly known for his acting chops (see: Jimmy Fallon‘s late night premiere with “Space Train“), but with the help of some of our favorite standout characters, the Scorsese star killed it. Here are our favorite sketches of the night: More »
