Emma Watson is set to play dress up in other people's clothes and jewellery with the release of The Bling Ring on Thursday. The movie has been on my must-see list ever since I heard the fascinating true story of the real "Bling Ring," a crew of Hollywood youngsters stealing from the rich and famous. These pictures make me want to see it even more, so click through to see Watson, Leslie Mann, Taissa Farmiga and the rest of the film's stars!
The first footage of The Bling Ring featured a seductively dancing Emma Watson, and now the full trailer introduces us to her character, Nicki. Nicki and her friends (including American Horror Story's Taissa Farmiga) are pretty obsessed with the scene of young Hollywood, but rubbing elbows with them at LA clubs and dressing like them isn't enough. With the help of gossip blogs and Google, the kids start breaking into the homes of celebrities like Paris Hilton to steal their pricey clothes and accessories. Their new lifestyle catches up with them soon enough, and the titular bling ring has to face the law.
I love Emma Watson, but it's weird seeing her play someone so morally loose and shallow (then again, it's always weird seeing her play someone who's not Hermione). However, I do like that the movie (which is based on real events from just a few years ago) looks kind of satirical and funny, especially since director Sofia Coppola's work is usually so moody. The Bling Ring opens is scheduled for an August release, and you can check out the trailer after the jump.

When your parents are two Hollywood heavyweights (one a director/producer, one an actress) chances are you're going to sweep the gene pool and come up trumps. This is true, and then some, for teenager Maude Apatow. Not one to rely on her parents' success, Maude is busy forging her own career — and it seems like everyone can't get enough! With numerous acting gigs under her belt already, a major writing presence online and a wildly popular Twitter feed, this girl is definitely worth keeping your eye on. Here, we've uncovered the top five things you need to know about Maude — click through to get to know her, and watch this space!
This Is 40, Judd Apatow's latest directorial effort, warns audiences about the dangers of blinking, meaning if you close your eyes you risk waking up decades later, wondering how you got to be so darn old. In a more literal sense, I did blink while watching the film. In fact, I full-on closed my eyes at the sight of Paul Rudd spread eagle with nothing but a strategically place hand mirror covering his man parts; I cringed while Pete (Rudd) and his wife, Debbie (Leslie Mann), screamed at each other for the umpteenth time; I yawned, I scoffed, but as with most of Apatow's projects, I also laughed and related to the conflicted characters.
This movie is billed as the "sort-of sequel" to Knocked Up, but it's more like a spin-off, centring completely on Pete and Debbie's clan five years later. The kids (played by Apatow and Mann's real-life children, Maude and Iris Apatow), are growing up and acting out — if watching unhealthy amounts of Lost qualifies as acting out — and the whole family is hitting a palpable rough patch. The film's unflinching honesty about shifting family dynamics is one of its strengths, but it's also undoubtedly uncomfortable to watch as resentment curdles and touches every aspect of the characters' lives. To find out what else I thought, just keep reading.
When walking the red carpet for an awards show, it's pretty much customary to go with a gown — and at yesterday's Critics' Choice Awards, we saw quite a lot of them. Floor-grazing looks were rife on the red carpet for everyone from from Anne Hathaway to Emmy Rossum to Jennifer Lawrence, but there were also a few standout ladies who decided to split from the pack and go for shorter silhouettes. Marion Cotillard stunned in a floral-embellished, tea-length Zuhair Murad dress, while Leslie Mann pumped things up in a petal-pink Honor dress that hit right at the knee. To round things out, Nina Dobrev stepped out in a showstopping teal embellished minidress by Monique Lhuiller, accented with a sexy keyhole cutout and bell-shaped skirt. We're loving these unique looks — and the fact that these three bucked the trend and went with something a bit shorter for last night's event can only be applauded. Are you a fan of the short-dress trend? Let us know below.

Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann reprise their Knocked Up roles as Pete and Debbie in the upcoming film This Is 40. We recently caught up with the co-stars to ask them about revisiting the onscreen couple and what they mined from their own marriages as they developed the script with Leslie's husband, Judd Apatow. Of course, we also had to ask them about a particularly funny scene their characters share while under the influence. Check out our chat before This Is 40 hits Aussie cinemas on January 17.
Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann and Megan Fox celebrated the premiere of their new movie, This Is 40, in LA last night. Megan, wearing Roland Mouret, and Paul were joined by their co-star Leslie, in a Vionnet dress, and her family. Leslie's husband, Judd Apatow, directed the film, and their two daughters, Maude and Iris Apatow, play Leslie and Paul's children in the movie, which is loosely billed as a sequel to 2007's Knocked Up. Jason Segel, who is also in the film, attended the premiere but without girlfriend Michelle Williams by his side. Lena Dunham dropped by the event to show some support for Judd, an executive producer on her show, Girls. Lena was spotted goofing around with friend Aubrey Plaza on the red carpet.
This has been a busy few months for Megan since she gave birth to her first child, Noah, on Sept. 27. Megan said that becoming a mum has changed her attitude towards her work. According to Megan, "It changes your perspective about being overly sexual in a film when you have a baby."
