A Star Is Born This Way: Lady Gaga says new movie is one of the "most creative experiences of my life"

(LOS ANGELES) -- You know all those songs Lady Gaga wrote, the concerts she's staged, the wacky costumes she's designed and the iconic videos she's made?  Well, according to her, they don't hold a candle to her first movie role -- creatively speaking, that is. As previously reported, Gaga, billed under her birth name, Stefani Germanotta, is starring opposite Bradley Cooper in a remake of the classic 1937 film A Star Is Born.  She tells E!, "Making this film [was] one of -- if not the most -- creative experiences of my life." One reason, Gaga explains, is because making her feature film debut is "a challenge in itself,…

"Game of Thrones" star Emilia Clarke says sexism in Hollywood is "like dealing with racism"

(HOLLYWOOD) -- Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke has never shied away from sharing her thoughts about being a woman in Hollywood. But in a new interview for Rolling Stone, Clarke, 30, compares sexism in the industry to "racism," and says it has permeated every part of her life. When talking about the amount of lines she has compared to her male co-stars, she said, "I feel so naive for saying it, but it's like dealing with racism. You're aware of it but one day you go, 'Oh, my God, it's everywhere!'" She added, "Like, you suddenly wake up to…

"Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" trailer reveals big departure from original film

(LOS ANGELES) The trailer for the new Jumanji reboot is out and it looks completely different from the 1995 original starring Robin Williams. In this version, four teenagers find an old video game in their school basement and get sucked inside its jungle setting. But there’s a twist: the teens also become trapped in the bodies of the characters they chose. So for instance, the nerdy kid now looks like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, the tall jock becomes the much-shorter Kevin Hart and the pretty blonde girl becomes…Jack Black. The characters must not only deal with their new physical forms,…

Shonda Rhimes: "People found me valuable" after 150-pound weight loss

(HOLLYWOOD) -- When Shonda Rhimes lost 150 pounds a few years ago, she discovered that her entire life was transformed, and not necessarily in a good way. The creator of ABC shows including Grey's Anatomy and Scandal wrote in her Shondaland newsletter that once she shed the weight, people began treating her differently. For the first time, she noticed that people complimented her and seemed excited to chat with her -- a shift she found more "horrifying" than the weight loss process itself. "What the hell did they see me as before? How invisible was I to them then? How hard did…

Halle Berry says her Oscar win "meant nothing"

(LOS ANGELES) -- In 2002, Halle Berry became the first woman of color to win the Best Actress Oscar, and she tearfully dedicated her award to, "every nameless, faceless woman of color who now has a chance because this door has been opened." Now fifteen years after her win for Monster's Ball, Berry says that trophy feels almost meaningless, because no other woman of color has won the award since. In an interview with Teen Vogue's editor-in-chief Elaine Welteroth, Halle addressed the Oscar race, describing the lack of diversity as a major issue. "It’s troubling, to say the least,” she said, adding that her…
