In these long-awaited summer months, nothing seems better than soaking up the sun at the beach, swimming in the pool or grilling out at night watching the sunset. However, if you're looking to beat the heat, nothing is yummier than snuggling up to your boyfriend (or best friend!) and popping in a romantic movie. It's the perfect opportunity to escape reality, stress and humidity, and instead embrace comedy, heartache and, most importantly, love.
If the Information Age has taught us anything, it's that everyone has a skeleton in his closet. Just because a gentleman or lady entertains children does not qualify them as role models, mamas. Recently, Peter Robbins, the voice of Charlie Brown, plead guilty to stalking his ex and her plastic surgeon. It got us thinking: what other kid's characters have been convicted of bizarre crimes? Turns out, a lot.
Disney movies are the best. They are so fun to watch and they are classics, but that doesn't mean they promote realistic expectations of relationships. In fact, Disney princesses may just perpetuate the worst love stereotypes ever. From Ariel changing her entire personality to meet Prince Eric all the way to Pocahontas and John Smith having literally nothing in common, love lessons are few and far between in these movies.
Sometimes — in a relationship — a woman makes more than a man. And there is nothing wrong with that! It doesn't make a man any less of a man if his lady makes more money. In fact, a man should honored to stand beside a woman who is powerful enough to command a high value paycheck! It even happens in Hollywood (women making more than their partner, that is). From actresses who married cameramen (can you guess who?) to entertainment power duos battling it out for the number one, money-making spot, some celeb women just bring home more bacon.
No one does love quite like Disney. Their love is a mass of Technicolor awesomeness, and they have the quotes to knock said awesomeness out of the park. Here are just ten fabulous quotes about love from some of our favorite movies (only ten because if we included all of our favorites, we'd still be writing the post). Enjoy!
Being a superhero isn't all roses and X-ray vision. It's amazing how someone can save the world, but have a hard time getting laid or even just go a week without some girl or guy drama. These superheroes are almost as famous for their dysfunctional romantic relationships as they are for their superhuman strength and abilities.
With all the frenzy around Frozen casting on Once Upon A Time, we came up with the ideal cast of players for a potential live-action rendition of Disney's Frozen. They may not necessarily be who you'd expect, but we guarantee you they'd create another blockbuster guaranteed to break the bank, because in this case, art imitates life for these characters.
When we think of some of the most talented actors and musicians, we can't help but to think of those who were taken from us much too early. We were devastated when R&B singer Aaliyah died in a plane crash in the Bahamas. She was only 22 years old at the time of her death in 200, far too young. As an R&B icon, a generous and loving soul, and a beautiful face, we wonder what she'd be like today. She's not the only one who is on our mind and in our hearts although they are no longer with us. Here are five stars who are gone but not forgotten.
Yes, Frozen came out back in November and we are still talking about it, because it's become one of our favorite movies ever! Breaking the box office record of the sixth highest-grossing movie of all time is just one of this Disney giant's many accolades. "Let It Go" remains on repeat during our morning commute and we're still pretty upset that talking snowmen don't actually exist. After breaking all kinds of movie and song records, Frozen the musical is up next!
There's no shortage of beautiful women in Hollywood. With perfectly airbrushed skin, limbs so toned and tummies so taut, you'd think the leading ladies in Tinseltown were Photoshopped. That's why we think it's refreshing to see that some celebrity guys aren't falling for the Barbie doll types. These famous gents adore their wives for their lovely lady lumps.
By now, we’ve all heard about the most infamous celebrity sex tapes from Pam and Paris, but which stars' X-rated home videos went shockingly under the radar?
With Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding bonanza mere weeks away, we can't help but feel a bit envious—not of Kate Middleton or what is sure to be her amazing gown—but of the glitz and glam that a royal wedding signifies. (Of course, Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama are better role models than your average European princess, but do they ever get to wear tiaras or swan across a ballroom floor with John Travolta?
In honor of Women's History Month, we salute 15 women who changed the way we live and love. Who would you add to the list?
Every actress dreams of bagging that gorgeous golden Oscar statuette, but if the Best Actress Curse is to be believed, scoring an Academy Award means tanking a relationship (think Sandra Bullock, Kate Winslet and Reese Witherspoon, whose relationships fell apart within a year of their Best Actress wins). If the curse is real, can we then predict who will win the 2011 Best Actress by looking at whose love life is least stable? We hope not!
With the Sundance Film Festival wrapping recently, we've had to move to greener pastures (also known as Awards Show Season) to get our fix of celebrity sightings and outstanding cinema. Certain films from the festival are lingering in our minds as some of the most beautiful love stories we've encountered in years, and lucky for you, all of these films have been purchased by larger film studios and will be released in theaters in 2011. So grab your love and suggest a movie date when these films hit the silver screen.
