James Franco is a white, heterosexual, wealthy, educated male. He is a multifaceted artist and has loads of talent that he spreads to many, many projects. He has received endless accolades and awards for his creative efforts and shows that actors can have substance and are a wealth of ideas and thoughts. However, he is a super privileged dude who just defaced one of my favorite female artists. When I first heard about James Franco’s opening at PACE Gallery I ... Read More
I learned about blow jobs from Charlie Chaplin. (Yes, that Charlie Chaplin). I was about 12 and with my babysitting earnings I bought the book Hollywood Babylon. As a passionate old movie fan, and an adolescent girl with a filthy mind and an even filthier curiosity, a book like Hollywood Babylon was a dream come true. The book dealt with various Tinsel Town scandals, and while I now know that much of the book is just blatantly untrue and much is just based on ... Read More
We're pretty excited for the opening of Divergent this Friday, woot! Check out our exclusive cover story with hippy child Shailene Woodley below. The first thing I notice about Shailene (pronounced “Shay-LEEN”) Woodley is her feet—they’re bare. She’s just arrived at the Los Angeles hillside house where we’re shooting her BUST cover, and ditching her footwear outside the front door was the first thing she did. The shoes she ... Read More
Two photographers -- the fashion and fine art-minded Omar Victor Diop and the self-proclaimed cultural-critic, Antoine Tempe -- recently teamed up to create an attention-grabbing photo series. Their angle? Re-casting classic stills from old Hollywood movies with "a representative sample of the cultural scenes in Dakar and Abidjan."  The project was funded by the Onomo International hotel group, and includes images ...

It seems all this talk of movies with lead female characters making more money has finally caught on to the head media honchos in Hollywood, and I think it's about time. IndieWire created a list of some of the most anticipated movies of 2014 and I was happily surprised to find so many female driven plots as well as strong female influence behind the scenes. You can expect everything from a fierce Angelina Jolie in "Maleficent," the long awaited Veronica Mars movie ... Read More
  Geena Davis has been increasing awareness on Hollywood sexism for over ten years with her foundation, the Institute on Gender in Media. The research-based institute has commissioned the largest body of information on gender in film and television ever gathered. And recently she took to the Hollywood Reporter's Women In Entertainment Power 100 issue with a guest column on the ways the film industry can improve itself and the world around it, published today ...

Boobs have been big this year! No, wait, I mean it’s been a big year for boobs in pop culture. Some years, not much happens with famous racks—perhaps an ambitiously plunging dress or two, or the discovery of a new kind of cleavage, like “side-boob.” In other years, breasts are upstaged by vaginas. After all, they don’t enjoy the same urban-legend mystery that surrounds other so-called private parts. (Remember when Paris Hilton would ... Read More
It’s become a well-traveled path for young women in Hollywood. Step One: Achieve teen megafame by landing a breakout role in a Disney project, being a Svengali-managed pop star, or both. Step Two: Get caught doing something deemed “inappropriate” for your wholesome celebrity brand, even if it’s something plenty of people do in their late teens or early 20s. Step Three: Weather a shitstorm of disapproval with public apologies and/or court appearances. Then ... Read More
 It's no secret that Hollywood is, uh, not the friendliest place for lady filmmakers--but thankfully, there are badass females doing the damn thing in indie studios and cinemas all over the world. Citizen Jane Film Festival celebrates the incredible work of women filmmakers with three action-packed days of screenings, panels, symposiums, and parties. And you lucky, lucky Midwesterners get to enjoy it!  This year, they're hosting films and filmmakers as ... Read More
I love Ellen Page. Anyone in their right mind loves Ellen Page. I mean, just take a gander at this woman’s film resume: Hard Candy, Juno, Inception—Page kicks patriarchy’s butt in every one of her films, and she does it so effortlessly. The vengeful pedophile hunter out for the kill in Hard Candy? Easy. The relentless superhero wannabe in Super? Hell yeah. Kitty Pryde in X-Men: The Last Stand AND the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past? Need I ... Read More
