Before you step away from your computer to enjoy your weekend, check out our Friday Crush Worthy feature. Instead of just telling you about the pop stories you were crushing over the past week, now we're showing you. So press play on the video below to see Hollywood Crush tackle the week's past news and keep reading for more details on our juiciest headlines.
It seems like many of our favorite stars are releasing new movies soon or in the very near future. We all got psyched for Miley Cyrus' new flick, "The Last Song", this week, thanks to an exclusive clip starring Liam Hemsworth playing beach volleyball.
In the scene, Miley was gifted with an eyeful of Liam… without his shirt on. As far as we can tell, this movie is going to rock as hard as Liam's abs! The ladies of "Sex and The City" also gave us a little taste of what we can expect when the sequel to their big-screen adaptation hits theaters this May. Want a hint? Well, SJP wasn't giving too many!

Nicholas Sparks' latest big screen rendition, "The Last Song," is almost here! We're excited to see Miley Cyrus take a role different from what we've seen on "Hannah Montana." More importantly, we're also excited to see her character, Ronnie, a rebellious teen, begin a hot summer romance with town local Will (Liam Hemsworth).
Want a taste of the their onscreen chemistry? In the clip below, Ronnie is hanging out on the beach at night when Will stops by unexpectedly, planning to camp out. As a true gentleman, he comes with lantern and music in tow and she mocks him for overpacking: "Are you moving in?" she asks. Ronnie's father (Greg Kinnear) and brother Jonah (Bobby Coleman), meanwhile, are comically spying on them from the house, eager to see what's going on, insisting that they " maintain visual contact."
Will you be seeing "The Last Song" next week? Why or why not?

How could it be that such entertainment giants as Jennifer Lopez, Johnny Depp, Miley Cyrus, Brad Pitt and P. Diddy are all together in one place, and all being outshined by one star, Robert Pattinson? While fans of the British actor would argue it’s because of box office smash films like "New Moon", it may have a bit more to do with each of them being made of wax. Earlier today, Rob's figure was finally unveiled.
MTV News was on the scene as the historical moment unfolded, and we can report that Robert’s recently-made immortal figure provoked many screams and yells from the hordes of fans waiting outside Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in Times Square bright and early (yup, one got there at 4 a.m.!) When given a chance to stand beside fake Rob, they acted exactly as we'd imagine they would next to real Rob — with laughter, kisses, shrieks and hugs. There were also plenty of hands running through his soft hair.
The end of "Ugly Betty" is near (only three new episodes left!) and as much as it's making us want to lock ourselves into the decadent hallways of Mode magazine so that we never have to say goodbye, we're starting to realize that the parting is inevitable.
Betty herself, America Ferrera, is too. "It was such a wonderful period of my life and that's going to take a little bit of time to digest," she told MTV News while promoting her new flick, the animated "How To Train Your Dragon." With only one week left on the set with Mark, Wilhelmina, Daniel and Co., America adds that she hasn't even had time to consider what's next. "Right now it's too much to think about even jumping straight into another thing that would be that long term."
James Franco has proven over the past few years he's far from just a pretty (OK, very pretty) face by starring in dramatic fare such as "Milk," and "Howl," but we think it's his comedic chops that put him a step above the rest. From his early roots on "Freaks and Geeks" to his Golden Globe nominated turn in the stoner comedy "Pineapple Express," James has made dopey so darn endearing. In the new screwball comedy "Date Night," it looks as though James is poised to have us rolling in the aisles yet again.
In our exclusive clip from the film, a tattooed, sleeveless Taste (James) and his girlfriend Whippit (Mila Kunis) are getting ready to make an escape from their apartment where a couple named Phil and Claire (Steve Carell and Tina Fey) whose date night has gone terribly awry, are seeking their help.
Chris Evans is no stranger to the world of comic book movies, so now that he's officially the man who will play Captain America, it seems that us ladies should take notice of this superhero. Plus, it's hard not to love that adorable face. So, in honor of the big casting news — he beat out a number of Hollywood A-listers for the role — Chris is this week's Hump Day Hottie!
Press play on the video below to see more of Chris, and then keep reading for more details about him!
Vital Stats: At 28, Chris has certainly become a go to Hollywood stud. He grew up in Sudbury, Massachusetts and he took classes the prestigious Lee Strasberg Theater Institute in New York City. Over the years he's been linked to a number of starlets (including Jessica Biel), but as far as we can tell these days he's flying solo.
The newest cool (and hot!) TV dad on the block is Baze from "Life Unexpected." And while he's still trying to figure out how to be a good parental figure to his teenage daughter, Lux (played very perfectly by Britt Robertson), Kristoffer Polaha admits that in the world of small screen papas, he has yet to be the perfect role model. In fact, when Hollywood Crush spoke to the man in the running to be this year's Matthew Gray Gubler (as in our Hump Day Hottie of the year!), he insisted he knew exactly what TV dad Baze was most like.
Here were his options:
Jason Seaver (Alan Thicke) from "Growing Pains"
Homer Simpson from "The Simpsons"
Heathcliff Huxtable (Bill Cosby) from "The Cosby Show"
Danny Tanner (Bob Saget) from "Full House'
Peter Griffin from "Family Guy"
After the jump, check out Kris' response!

My favorite thing about this week’s Girl Crush is her smile. When she’s giving an interview, strutting her stuff down the red carpet or even getting her coffee, she always wears an infectious smile. And, really, what’s not to love about someone who is able to make everyone show off their pearly whites? Nothing! That’s why this week’s Girl Crush, is none other than America Ferrera!
Once we saw “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants,” in which she played intelligent and outspoken Carmen, we knew there was no turning back; America had stolen our hearts. And if it didn’t seem possible, she made us adore her more by portraying lovable hopeless, fashion victim Betty Suarez in the soon-to-be-over “Ugly Betty.”
Amanda Seyfried is best known for being the wide-eyed, sometimes ditzy blonde girl from films like "Mean Girls," "Mamma Mia" and "Dear John." Her raciest role to date is on the Showtime drama "Big Love" where she plays the disapproving daughter of a polygamist. So, for the most part, Amanda has played it on the safe side with "Veronica Mars," and the upcoming "Letters to Juliet."
But her newest film to be hitting theaters in limited release this Friday, "Chloe," blows all those preconceived conceptions of Amanda and her acting abilities out of the water. Starring opposite Julianne Moore and Liam Neeson, she plays the titular character in the erotic thriller directed by Atom Egoyan.
For those of you who thought you'd never get a chance to see the queen of romantic comedies, Jennifer Aniston, belt out a tune on the big screen, don't go signing the blues just yet. The star of "The Bounty Hunter" told MTV News that "The Goree Girls," the musical drama she signed onto back in December 2008, is still going to be made and she will still be singing in it.
"We're still doing it, it's going through a rewrite and it should be happening sometime next year," she said of the movie — which is based on a true story — about a group of 1940s female prison inmates who start a country western band. "I'm still trying to figure out where in my schedule to find its little spot."
Do you think Jennifer Aniston should take a turn in a musical? Or should she stay in the movie genres that she's known for best?
