Memo to 'Miserable' Justin Timberlake: Beg Britney Spears to Come Back

Posted Mar 18th 2011 at 02:00 PM by Matthew Shepatin

Pop-Ed: We get it, Justin Timberlake. We know why you're miserable. One more night of couch-cuddling and Netflix-watching with Jessica Biel and you were going to go bananas. Caged birds must sing. Butterflies must be free. D***s must not be boxed (or so the song tells us). But picking up random booty-shakers at the club and rocking their bodies till the break of dawn is going to lose its appeal...

'Thriller' Portraitist Dick Zimmerman: 'Michael Jackson Had Tears In His Eyes'

Posted Mar 10th 2011 at 10:34 PM by Matthew Shepatin

Dick Zimmerman became world-renowned for introducing a style of celebrity portrait photography that looked like a painting. (You remember all those TV Guide covers from the '70s and '80s, right?) Over the years, he's shot some of the biggest names in Hollywood, ranging from Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman to John Travolta and Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. Over a 13-year period, Zimmerman also ...

'Take Me Home Tonight' Star Teresa Palmer Burned a House Down Partying

Posted Mar 4th 2011 at 07:30 PM by Matthew Shepatin

Interviewing 'Take Me Home Tonight' star Teresa Palmer, you want to to ask about her one-time romance with co-star Topher Grace. But the point is totally moot -- she's as mum on that relationship as she is on Russell Brand, whom she dated for a minute before he, y'know, married Katy Perry. But our interview was no loss. The 25-year-old Palmer, raised in the blue collar suburbs of Adelaide, Aust...

'The King's Speech' Star Guy Pearce Talks Colin Firth's Oscar Chances, Reflects on 'Memento'

Posted Feb 27th 2011 at 06:01 PM by Matthew Shepatin

I'll admit it. I thought about presenting my interview with Guy Pearce -- who plays King Edward VIII in Oscar hopeful 'The King's Speech' -- in reverse. A meta-tribute to the granddaddy of meta-narratives, 'Memento,' which just celebrated its 10th anniversary (hence, the new special-edition Blu-ray). Pearce's breakout performance in 'L.A. Confidential' should have put him on the path to fabulou...

Forget the Oscars: Here Are the Best Bit Performances of 2010

Posted Feb 25th 2011 at 11:48 PM by Matthew Shepatin

The Oscars pretty much have the best performances of the year on lock. And while Best Supporting Actor/Actress nominations can come from brief performances -- see Alan Arkin's winning turn in 2006's 'Little Miss Sunshine' -- we at PopEater think there are some true heroes being glossed over. Those screen sensations are the bit actors. Their parts range from a few minutes to mere seconds, but th...

'Sanctum' Star Rhys Wakefield: James Cameron Actually An 'Amazing Mentor'

Posted Feb 4th 2011 at 12:45 PM by Matthew Shepatin

Australians are taking over Hollywood, and Rhys Wakefield gets it. The 22-year-old Aussie newcomer stars in this weekend's big release, 'Sanctum,' a James Cameron-executive produced underwater thriller. Yet in spite of the stardom that can befall an unknown Australian actor in a James Cameron 3-D project, Wakefield's not ready to annoint himself the next Sam Worthington. "Heh. I don't know," he...

Kim Kardashian: Bond Girl? Five Actresses We'd Love To See Seduce 007

Posted Feb 2nd 2011 at 09:22 PM by Matthew Shepatin

Kim Kardashian recently told E! News she wants to go tit-for-tat with England's most famous secret agent. "I would love to be in a Bond film -- a Bond Girl," she said. "That would be the ultimate." Booty Galore does have a nice ring to it. But to be a Bond Girl is no mean feat, as any serious 007 fan will tell you, Kim. Only the most confused members of our species could argue you don't posse...
