(NEW YORK) -- Oscar nominee Mahershala Ali is quickly becoming one of the most recognizable faces on screen. But when it comes to his name, that's a whole other matter. In a recent appearance on Popcorn With Peter Travers, Ali told ABC News he's even used different versions of it over the years just to make it easier on everyone else.
"My birth name is Mahershalalhashbaz, 18 letters from the Old Testament," Ali said. "When I was younger, I went by Hershal. And I kind of embraced more of my name Mahershala in high school and college and in grad school."

Angelina Jolie penned an op-ed in the New York Times today with her personal perspective on President Donald Trump's recent travel ban directed at seven countries with predominantly Muslim residents.
The Oscar winner focused her essay on the, "men, women and children caught in the fury of war," who will most be affected by this ban and whom she says are "far from being terrorists, they are often the victims of terrorism themselves."Trump's order, which went into effect last Friday, suspends immigration and admission of refugees from Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen into the U.S. for at…

(NEW YORK) -- Gary Oldman plays Nathaniel Shepherd, the visionary head of a company that specializes in space exploration. His goal is to form a colony on Mars called East Texas. We first meet Shepherd at a press conference that has the production value of a well-produced high school musical -- and that’s not a compliment. Very little effort is put into making this look realistic, which is unfortunate. It was clearly a ploy by the filmmakers to stay within budget.
But things don’t go as planned with the mission -- namely, the astronaut in charge of it got pregnant…
(LONDON) -- Amid the growing list of celebrities speaking out against President Donald Trump, Matthew McConaughey says it's time for Hollywood to embrace the new president.

(WASHINGTON D.C.) -- President Trump jokingly offered up a prayer for Arnold Schwarzenegger, as the president addressed the audience at this morning's National Prayer Breakfast.
The jab had to do with the ratings for The Celebrity Apprentice, Mr. Trump's former gig. "They hired a big movie star, Arnold Schwarzenegger, to take my place, and we know how that turned out," Trump said with mock solemnity, to audience laughter.
"The ratings went right down the tubes. It's been a total disaster. And [producer] Mark [Burnett] will never, ever bet against Trump again, and I want to just pray for Arnold, if we can, for those ratings,"…
