Natalie Portman said that while she’s never been assaulted during her acting career, she has plenty of stories of harassment and sexism. Speaking at Vulture Fest La on Sunday, the star said that when all of the sexual misconduct accusations starting spreading, she felt grateful she didn’t have a story of her own. “And then, on reflection, I was like, okay, definitely never been assaulted, definitely not, but I’ve had discrimination or harassment on almost everything I’ve ever worked on in some way,” she said, according to the outlet.

All 8 Aaron Sorkin Movies Ranked From Worst to Best (Photos)

2 hours ago

Aaron Sorkin was probably born in the wrong era. And yet here he is, still kicking in 2017. His characters operate under an impossibly witty and clever language, engaging in exchanges only experienced in the movies of Howard Hawks or Frank Capra. It’s fueled by a rapid-fire repartee. For better or worse, Sorkin has replicated this breathless style of dialogue. With the upcoming release of Molly’s Game, Sorkin’s directorial debut, we decided to rank every film the man has penned over the course of 25 years.   “Malice” (1993)   Sorkin’s shoddiest screenplay is also his most dated. In “Malice”, Nicole Kidman. »

Ratings: AMAs Match Last Year’s All-Time Low, Get Crushed by NFL Football

3 hours ago

Breaking: Americans are still much more into football than pop music. Sunday’s American Music Awards show tied 2016’s all-time low rating among adults 18-49, but the ABC show was able to grow its overall audience by 10 percent year over year. It was nowhere near enough to tackle NBC’s primetime pigskin, however — not that anyone thought it would be. Packing a particularly strong “Sunday Night Football” game, NBC finished first in ratings with a 5.1 rating/17 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 15.7 million, according to preliminary numbers. The network’s “Football Night in. »

The year will soon come to a close — but first you need to make it on the other end of the holiday season unscathed. You can eschew some of the more traditional adult responsibilities (no one blames you for doing all your gift shopping online, or buying store-bought cookies for Santa) and curl up with Netflix, which — let’s be real — has been there for you all year, unlike that bearded fly-by-night guy in the red suit. Season 2 of the award-winning series “The Crown” is finally back on Dec. 8, and the nostalgia-play “Fuller House” is back with »

All 19 Pixar Movies Ranked, Worst to Best (Photos)

4 hours ago

TheWrap’s film critic Alonso Duralde rates all the Pixar animation studio’s features: 19. Cars 2 (2011) “They should let people see the movie for free,” one pundit opined, “since Disney will make all their money back on the bedsheets.” Some of Pixar’s best movies are sequels, but this follow-up to an already inferior studio entry seemed like nothing but a craven bid for more merchandising money. The results were good for shareholders but middling for moviegoers. 18. Cars (2006) Never underestimate little boys and their love for automobiles. This brightly colored but dramatically flat tale is most enjoyed by a) male moviegoers. »

Disregard the Face: Pink Says Christina Aguilera ‘F—ing Killed It’ at AMAs

4 hours ago

Shockingly, Twitter detectives have once again missed the mark. Christina Aguilera’s tribute to Whitney Houston at the American Music Awards — yes, those are still a thing — brought the house down on Sunday night, but many on the social platform were wondering why Pink looked so not-impressed during the performance. The cameras panned to the “Get the Party Started” singer a few minutes into XTina’s cover of “I Will Always Love You,” looking like she’d just taken a giant swig of sour milk. Considering that Pink and Aguilera had a decades-long “beef” dating back to their “Lady Marmalade” days (a staple. »
