Jun 16, Getty Images As one of the biggest actresses to reach stardom in the s and ’60s, the gamine Audrey Hepburn was often seen as a contrast to the bombshell Marilyn Monroe, with her slim physique and fawn-like face making it easy for Hollywood to label her the anti-Marilyn. But though the Belgian actress seemed like a hopeless romantic, Hepburn still had her fair share of tumultuous loves and Hollywood affairs though unlike the Sleeping with Sirens song suggests, she was never in a relationship with James Dean.

Here, a deeper look at Hepburn’s complex love life. The wealthy, soon-to-be Lord was excited to marry the budding Hollywood star, but Hepburn, who had her doubts, decided to call off the wedding, despite having several fittings with designer Zoe Fontana for a custom ivory satin wedding gown featuring a tiny waist and boat-neck front. Hepburn in the gown Zoe Fontana designed for her wedding to Hanson.

In , at the film’s British opening, Hepburn was introduced to Mel Ferrer, an actor and stage and film director, at a party. At the time, Ferrer was a twice-divorced father of four who was 12 years older than Hepburn. But despite the age difference, Hepburn came to like Ferrer.

For audiences it will be a chance to compare performances playing one of Thomas Hardy’s most memorable and feisty women, Bathsheba Everdene. Christie, then 27, was one of the world’s biggest stars having won a best actress Oscar two years earlier for Darling. Mulligan, 29, won a best actress Bafta for her role in the film An Education. For those who watched Christie’s tantalising performance opposite her former lover Terence Stamp playing army officer Troy – her other co-stars Alan Bates Gabriel Oak and Peter Finch William Boldwood are both long dead – the only question will be:

Ironically, a letter had been mailed to her just before her death offering her the lead role in a play about a young woman who commits suicide.

She embodied the kind of larger-than-life celebrity the silver screen adored. Her image resonated because as Dietrich herself noted: Not for myself, not for the public, not for fashion, not for men. Star quality was the magic that made the glitter factory hum, and Dietrich was one of the few to invent her own indelible personas. Taking a cue from her mentor, the star also began using full-length mirrors to check the lighting before scenes were filmed.

Most importantly, Morocco created the lasting Dietrich image. Posed in top hat and tails smoking a cigarette, glamorous and beckoning, she gazes directly at the camera with an allure that somehow transcends sex. Dietrich was born in Berlin in

With her ready smile and peaches and cream complexion, she typified the honest, home-grown beauty of the girl-next-door, and she became one of the most successful movie actresses of the ‘s becoming, at one time, the highest paid woman in the United States. The sexy Jean Harlow type of Hollywood leading lady had given way, with with the implementation of the Hays Code in , to a more ethereal type of screen female, typified by the “Goddess” Greta Garbo.

The ‘s and WWII brought a need for a more homely type of screen diva, and the answer was the ‘sweater girl’; wholesome girls-next-door whose healthy, outdoor life just happened to require them to wear tight sweaters and shorts. Betty Grable’s unique sexy appeal fulfilled the new archetype perfectly, and more completely than any other star. Her iconic “looking over the shoulder” photo in bathing suit graced armed forces lockers the world over and made her a household name.

Reddit Was Jim Carrey a jerk or a genius? The man was overnight gold, with enough cachet to last him practically the rest of his career. But the weirder, and frankly, more fascinating story on that? Carrey says that he met a palm reader in L. Maybe he really is crazy. It makes sense that it would take nearly 20 years for Carrey and Universal to let the cat out of the bag on the crap he pulled while filming Man on the Moon.

It was touch and go for a moment though. The guy who is way less famous than Kim Kardashian even though he co-starred in the sex tape that sky-rocketed her into international stardom and an unfathomable bank account is tiring of the craziness that seems to follow him on the VH1 reality show. Ray J has even threatened to quit so he can focus more on building a life with Princess. Show creator Mona Scott-Young recognizes that Ray J is one of the only names saving the Hollywood franchise, so she was quick to sweeten his deal.

According to TMZ , Ray and Princess met with Mona to share their concerns and lobby for more positive editing when it comes to their love life. The site claims that the trio came to a deal that promises more balance when it came to airing the good and bad parts of their relationship…as long as the couple could continue to deliver some drama for the cameras. Ray even managed to negotiate a new contract which includes bonuses if the ratings increase.

We all know drama equals ratings on this show! Yes, this is coming from the same guy who inadvertently Heismanned his girlfriend Princess into to pool during a fight after a romantic dinner.

The new Showtime documentary Becoming Cary Grant traces the actor’s journey from working-class England to Hollywood stardom. Getty Images There’s a classic moment in the romantic thriller Charade, when Audrey Hepburn says to Cary Grant in exasperation, “Do you know what’s the matter with you? Grant’s unrivaled blend of charm, good looks and silliness — he hadn’t a shred of pomposity or elitism — made him a movie star everyone loved.

Everyone, that is, except Archie Leach, the actor’s real-life self who wrote that he’d spent years cautiously peering from behind the face of a man known as Cary Grant. Weaving together the actor’s private home movies, excerpts from his unpublished writings and terrific clips from his Hollywood work, this Showtime film tells the story of an arduous act of self-invention.

It is highly readable as well. Schmid’s nuanced explorations of media—particularly his encyclopedic understanding of television and cinema—help give new focus to this popular phenomenon. Ingebretsen, author of At Stake: Not surprisingly, therefore, film is unique among popular cultural media in its potential to shed light on the reasons why we have celebrity serial killers because it is a medium defined by the representation of acts of violence and by the presence of stars.

One of the founding figures of the medium, Thomas Edison, seems to have had a long-standing interest in violence and was also attentive to the ways in which fame could be used in conjunction with the representation of violence. One of the earliest phonograph recordings he produced featured an actor reading the confessions of H. Holmes, and one of his first kinetoscopes showed the execution of Mary, Queen of Scots.

Although the depiction was not entirely convincing, the audience was shown the executioner swinging his axe and Mary’s head rolling onto the ground. Film’s preoccupation with the representation of violence continued in the first narrative movie, Edwin Porter’s The Great Train Robbery , which showed a beating victim thrown from a moving train and climaxed with the massacre of the train robbers.
