Jennifer Lawrence: I Didn't Know My Gender-Pay Gap Essay Would "Blow Up Like That"

(LOS ANGELES) -- Jennifer Lawrence was surprised by the strong reaction her essay on the gender-pay gap in Hollywood received following its publication last year. The Oscar winner addressed the lack of equal pay for women in Hollywood in an essay for Lena Dunham's Lenny Letter. “I had no idea it was going to blow up like that," she now tells Harper's Bazaar magazine. "And I obviously only absorbed the negative. I didn’t pay attention to the positive feedback. "My parents get really upset," she continues. "They do not like me speaking out about anything political because it’s hard to…

Review: “Demolition” (R)

(NEW YORK) -- Jake Gyllenhaal should be your favorite actor.  He’s the guy every acting coach in the world should tell their students to study.  Southpaw, End of Watch, Nightcrawler and Prisoners  were all Oscar-worthy performances, with the latter two serving as clinics in nuance. Perhaps the best thing about those four movies is they were risky and daring in their own way. With Demolition, Gyllenhaal picks a role that doesn’t require him to engage as emotionally as those others did.  Instead, he teams up with Wild and Dallas Buyers Club director Jean-Marc Vallée for a part that requires emotional…

Review: "The Boss" (R)

(NEW YORK) -- Melissa McCarthy is a comic genius, but all geniuses have bad days.  And in this case, a bad movie.

Michelle decides to show the world she never needed a family to be successful and becomes one of the richest women in the world, a self-help guru who sells out arenas -- despite being a tactless, loud-mouthed, out of touch egomaniac and, as it turns out, a criminal. One of the people Michelle seems to care about least…

"It’s supplied the pop music world with gigantic stars," Harry tells ABC Radio. "I think the statistics with regards to record sales and awards are just mind-boggling." Reigning champ Nick Fradiani, who'll…
