Jerry Ferrara—aka Turtle from Entourage—knows how to think like a man whose mind is on the current dating scene in Los Angeles. Thinking like a woman from that high profile area of the world is another matter. The star of "Think Like a Man" and "Battleship" (in theaters today) says that he's dating, but remains a bit confused. The problem is, his manners are old school in a new age of dating that doesn't support all that door opening and chair pulling, not to mention check paying.
Yes, she's strikingly beautiful, but there's way more to Hope Solo than meets the eye. Nothing gets past her -- not even soccer balls kicked by some of the world's best female athletes. Perhaps that's why this Team USA Goalkeeper is heading to the summer Olympics in London this year to compete for her third gold medal!
It's funny – when our parents or grandparents hit retirement age and older, we often lose the ability to relate to them. We may think they're stubborn, incapable of change and reluctant to accept anything new in their life. But the heartfelt comedy released this weekend, "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel," takes this idea and flips it on its head.
Earlier this week, "Extra" host Maria Menounos made headlines by nailing the first perfect score of the season on "Dancing With The Stars." She says she owes it all to her dance partner and coach, Derek Hough, but there's a quality about Menounos that leads us to believe if she wants something bad enough, she'll get it.

Sitting across from Emily Blunt and Alison Brie, one can get a really accurate sense of what days on the set of The Five-Year Engagement were like – there were probably a ton of laughs at the expense of their co-star Jason Segel, and some girly heart-to-hearts about the actresses' own love lives. With a movie premise as surprisingly real as this one, how could there not have been?
You could say actress Amy Smart is 'Shameless' about her love for pets. As a long supporter of Best Friends Animal Society and various other pet adoption initiatives in Los Angeles, the 36-year-old knows that owning a dog, cat or other animal can be the key to a happy life... and marriage.
Leave it to a raunchy comedy franchise to leave me feeling overwhelmingly nostalgic and existential. Does everyone grow up to be someone they never thought they would be? Is it ever possible to relive the glory days? And, most importantly, was high school REALLY the most fun I'm ever going to have? Man, I hope not.
Sam Worthington is a screen hunk who doesn't mind a little teasing from his girlfriend, Crystal Humphries. She will even point out the fact that he's not exactly "Workout Guy." "I don't really like the gym. I try to put that fact into my characters," he jokes. "In fact, my girlfriend watched Wrath (of The Titans) and said, 'Sam, you run really funny. You look out of breath and out of shape. It's so real.'"
Gorgeous Jennifer Lawrence is a bit of a tomboy. "I'm from Kentucky and grew up in the woods, but Josh Hutcherson is also from Kentucky. I called Josh the real redneck. He's a bigger hick than me," says the star of 'The Hunger Games' with a warm laugh.
He was always a driven actor, even in the years before he could drive.

"I got my hands on a phone book at age nine and looked up local acting agents," Hutcherson, a native of Kentucky, says with a smile. "Then I called one up and said, 'Hi, my name is Josh and I'm going to be a movie star.'"
