Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann don't want you to pre-judge Kate Upton (but explain why it's okay if you do) -- LISTEN

Have you seen Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, and Kate Upton discuss bikini waxes on Moviefone’s Unscripted? If so, you know that Diaz has promised to teach Upton how to give herself one, but also that the media tour for their film The Other Woman has been an entertaining one. Diaz and Mann stopped by Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM 105) to talk with “Women on Pop” hosts Melissa Maerz and Sara Vilkomerson about the revenge comedy’s spot in the “9 to 5 genre,” the best way to get over a cheater in real life (bonus: Mann outs a guy who crossed her by name), and how many interviewers have asked Upton about her boobs. “It’s shocking what people say,” Mann says. “The camera goes on, and the interviewer asks about her boobs…. I said once, ‘Well, how is your vagina? What’s your vagina like?'”

Diaz, a model-turned-actress herself, has felt pre-judged and underestimated in the past. “But it’s awesome,” she says, “because then you’re at an advantage. They’re projecting onto you what they think that you are. The position that you’re in is to be able to be who you are and to put it on them to have to accept that. If they can’t, then that’s their problem, but you get to still just be who you are, instead of having to be who they want you to be. But sometimes,” she continues, “you can pretend to be who they want you to be, which is the best part, because then they’re at a disadvantage because you’re so much more than what they think and you kinda have the upper hand…. [You’re smarter] than they give you credit for, which is really what happens with Kate all the time.”

Listen to the interview below. In the second clip, Diaz, a Game of Thrones fan, weighs in on the controversial scene between her Other Woman co-star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime) and Lena Headey (Cersei) in the April 20 episode and what she’ll be watching for next.  READ FULL STORY

'The Other Woman' trailer: Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, and Kate Upton form unlikely bond -- VIDEO

The first theatrical trailer for upcoming film The Other Woman finds Leslie Mann, Cameron Diaz, and Kate Upton teaming up to get back at the man who’s been stringing all three of them along at once.

The trailer for the upcoming comedy sets up the storyline for the film, in which a successful lawyer (Diaz) finds out her boyfriend (Game of Thrones‘ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) is actually married. After meeting his wife (Mann), the two women form an unlikely friendship and team up to get revenge on the man who scorned them both, only to find out that he’s been cheating on both of them with yet another woman (Kate Upton). The two women quickly recruit the other and the three of them set out to get even with the man who’s been lying to them all.

Watch the trailer for The Other Woman below:

'The Bling Ring' trailer: Adderall, Facebook and 'the lifestyle that everybody kinda wants'


“Girls! Time for your Adderall,” shouts Leslie Mann’s character to two sleeping teenagers in a brightly idyllic suburban Los Angeles home in the opening shot of the new trailer for The Bling Ring, before we smash cut to the teens acting cooler-than-thou at a dark club while Azealia Banks plays in the background and Paris Hilton and Kirsten Dunst make the rounds. These kids are way past pop tarts, orange juice, and movie nights.

Sofia Coppola’s (Lost In Translation) highly anticipated new film takes on the real-life teenage criminals who stole over $3 million in art, clothes, and jewels from Los Angeles-based celebrities like Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, and Rachel Bilson between October 2008 and August 2009.

In the trailer, below we see the origin — bored kids on Facebook noticing that Paris Hilton is hosting a party in Vegas. All it takes is one quick online search for “Paris Hilton address” and they’re off. “Let’s go to Paris’s,'” says Nicki (Emma Watson). “I want to rob.”

Check out the trailer below, and watch how things quickly spiral out of control for the label and celebrity obsessed teens who are all too skilled at explaining away their crimes.


Casting Net: Leslie Mann may star in 'The Other Woman'; Plus, Robert Duvall to play Robert Downey, Jr.'s dad, Amy Ryan, more

• Leslie Mann (This Is 40) and Jamie Lannister Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Game of Thrones) are in talks to join Cameron Diaz in the upcoming Nick Cassavetes film The Other Woman (not to be confused with Natalie Portman’s little seen 2009 flick with the same name). This story is about a woman who doesn’t know she’s the “other woman.” When she finds out, she decides to seek revenge with the help of the guy’s wife. The comedy could start shooting as early as late spring. Mann can be seen next in The Bling Ring as Emma Watson’s character’s mom. [THR]

• Robert Duvall is set to play Robert Downey Jr.’s dad in David Dobkin’s (Wedding CrashersThe Judge. In the film, Downey Jr. will play an attorney who finds out that his estranged father (the town Judge) is a suspect in his mother’s death. It’s being described as a dramedy. Jack Nicholson had been considering the role as well, but decided to pass on the project. [THR] Vera Farmiga and Elizabeth Banks are also being considered for the ex-girlfriend role. [Variety]

• The adaptation of Veronica Roth’s popular YA novel Divergent has added Maggie Q (Nikita), Zoë Kravitz (Mad Max: Fury Road), and Ansel Elgort (Carrie), to the cast. The Neil Burger-directed (Limitless) film is currently in pre-production and expects to start shooting in Chicago this spring.

Behind the scenes of Judd Apatow's 'This is 40' with Megan Fox -- EXCLUSIVE NSFW VIDEO

Did we get your attention with Megan Fox and NSFW in the headline? Good. Now here’s a behind-the-scenes video from the set of Judd Apatow’s upcoming comedy This Is 40, which hits theaters Dec. 21, highlighting the assets — comedic and, um, otherwise — that Fox brings to her supporting role as Desi, a highly sexualized clerk in a clothing boutique.

As you might imagine given the rest of the Apatovian oeuvre, the movie — a semi-sequel to Apatow’s 2007 hit Knocked Up, chronicling one emotionally tumultuous week in the lives of married-with-kids couple Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann) — has a healthy heaping of raunchy humor, so… well, if you were planning to watch this video with, say, your grandma, you might want to pump the brakes.

Check out the full video below: READ FULL STORY

Universal posts entire 'This Is 40' screenplay on its 'For Your Consideration' site

Want a sneak peek at This Is 40, Judd Apatow’s upcoming semi-sequel to Knocked Up? You could watch the film’s nearly three-minute-long trailer… or you could just go to Universal’s special awards season website, which is currently hosting a PDF of the movie’s full screenplay. The page also has subsections devoted to Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax, Snow White and the Huntsman, Ted, and Les Miserables. Every one of them includes a screenplay, except for Les Mis.

That makes sense; while the first three films have already been released, Tom Hooper’s musical won’t hit theaters until Christmas Day. But This Is 40 also isn’t getting released until December — making the studio’s decision to post its screenplay seem curious, at the very least. Then again, it’s likely that the film’s actual dialogue varies greatly from what’s on the page; Apatow is known for encouraging his actors to improvise.

In any case: The curious and impatient can find a PDF of the script here. It is, of course, NSFW, although there are no images to go with its descriptions of Viagra-fueled sex and gynecological visits.
