It's been 15 years since we first met best friends Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Samantha (Kim Cattrall), Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) and Charlotte (Kristin Davis) on HBO's ground-breaking series "Sex and the City" (based on the novel by Candace Bushnell). While the dating scene has changed considerably since the series debuted (hello, OKCupid and Snapchat!), the truths about life and love that it offered up remain relevant.
As we celebrate the show's 15th anniversary, we reminisce about our favorite episodes.
It's possible you know "Grown Ups 2" as the sequel to the 2010 buddy comedy starring Adam Sandler, but our hunch is—if you're reading this blog—you probably best recognize the film as "Twilight" star Taylor Lautner's comedic debut. He has abs of steel, but does he also have a finely chiseled funny bone? We'll find out come July 12!
In anticipation of "Grown Ups 2," our own Josh Horowitz sat down with Adam for a 30-minute interview, which took place at Happy Madison Square Garden—a basketball court nestled on the production company's lot. And if you've ever wondered about Taylor's own athletic prowess (REALLY!?!), Adam's here to put any doubts to rest.
"Taylor is not a basketball player but is somehow weaselly enough to beat most opponents," Adam informed us. "I don't know how tall Taylor is, but I'm 5'11", and I'm a little taller, so whatever the hell he is, he can grab the rim. He can swat people's shots. He's all over the place. He's a very quick man."
Some ladies like to take a breather after winning the entertainment industry's most prestigious acting award, but not Jennifer Lawrence—nuh-uh, not a chance. Jennifer, the busiest bee in Hollywood, just can't-stop-won't-stop adding projects to her already-crammed plate; the latest one, as reported by Variety, is the drama "Rules of Inheritance," which she'll produce as well as star in.
So basically, over the next couple years, it'll be difficult to go into a movie theater without the possibility of encountering the actress in some form or another...which means that it's time we did a convenient round-up of all the many, many movies she's got in the works. Behold!
The odds are most definitely in the Twitterverse's favor, as "The Hunger Games" star Liam Hemsworth has joined the social networking site. The 23-year-old posted his first tweet today:
Now if only he could get co-star Jennifer Lawrence to volunteer as Twitter tribute...
FROM MTV NEWS: Confession: "We Can't Stop" listening to Miley Cyrus' hot new single. Well...that's not exactly correct, seeing as MTV News took a quick break to hang with the starlet on the day of her jam's release.
And you better believe we talked about all kinds of things, including Miley's twerking video and maturing into a grown-up artist. Sample: "People think of me as a party animal, which I am a self-proclaimed party animal, but I also am the hardest-working person you'll ever know."
Check out our interview with Miley at MTV News!
With its bevy of bodacious babes and sunny setting, The CW's "Privileged" is one of our favoritest shows to ever gain admittance into the Annals of TV Series Gone Too Soon. (Here's hoping she's having a torrid love affair with "Freaks and Geeks"...) Canceled after its first season, "Privileged" followed Yale graduate Megan Smith (played by the perpetually plucky Joanna Garcia Swisher), who accepted a job nannying for a pair of spoiled Palm Beach brats with the hopes of writing a book about her experiences.
The series helped launch the careers of several actors—including "Pretty Little Liars" starlet Lucy Hale, who played twin Rose Baker. Though some stars haven't fared quite so well, we couldn't help but notice that this week in particular has been a very good one (dare we say, a "Privileged" one?) for the series' alumni. Let's take a look:
We probably don't have to tell you that the new red band trailer for "The To Do List," about a recent high-school graduate on an epic summer quest to schtup, teabag and reverse-cowgirl her way through the dictionary of sexual colloquialisms before college, is extremely NSFW...or pretty much anywhere else where it might be accidentally overheard by other human beings. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't watch it! In fact, whatever you're doing right now, you should pack yourself and your laptop into the nearest closet, the better to enjoy an, ahem, private moment with this summer's hottest movie.
Keg stands, skort conundrums, bikini mishaps and a terrible misunderstanding as to the nature of "pearl necklaces": all of this and more awaits you when you peep the preview for "The To Do List," which stars Aubrey Plaza in the lead role. Also of note: Bill Hader as a fantabulously perverted lifeguard at the local pool, and Rachel Bilson's not-entirely-inaccurate description of freshman year at college as a land of "penises everywhere." (It's true! They travel in packs!)
Hide your valuables and lock your closets! "The Bling Ring" is on the loose, with everyone out and about last night in L.A. for the premiere of this sticky-fingered film. (For those not in the know, the movie is based on the true story of the real-life Bling Ring, also known as the "Hollywood Hills Burglar Bunch," who robbed a slew of celebrity homes back in 2008.) All the stars of the film were looking lovely on the red carpet, and—surprise, surprise—there was even an appearance by one of the crew's famous victims too.
Among last night's best-dressed: the always impeccable Emma Watson, who stunned in a sparkly black cocktail dress with a short sassy hem and a high, stiff collar—and also Claire Julien, whose long-sleeved mini-dress with gold accents and big structured shoulders was a shining standout on the red carpet. Plus, Paris Hilton (who was famously burglarized multiple times by the Bling Ring before she noticed that her stuff was disappearing) put in an appearance, wearing her signature favorite shade of pink and a trendy hi-low hem.
FROM MTV NEWS: Kristen Stewart's post-"Twilight" schedule has been a bit frenetic—we've seen a number of projects come and go (and in the case of "K-11," sort of come back again). And now we need to add two more projects to our radar.
The 23-year-old has signed onto "Camp X-Ray" and "Sils Maria," and if the names alone don't give it away, both are dramas that will likely keep Kristen's acting muscles in tip-top shape.

It seems like it was only yesterday that an impeccably dressed Stanley Tucci so memorably heralded the arrival of one
Anna Wintour Miranda Priestly at the offices of Vogue Runway magazine in "The Devil Wears Prada." If we close our eyes and concentrate hard enough, we can still hear him shouting, "All right everyone, gird your loins!"
In reality, though, it's been seven long, lonely years since "The Devil Wears Prada" movie introduced us to the acid-tongued fashionista and editor-in-chief of Runway—and her plucky, "fat" assistant, Andy Sachs—and in the Hollywood world, that means seven years of angstily wondering where, oh where, the followup film might be. (I mean, honestly; that ridiculous horror flick starring Warwick Davis as an evil leprechaun had five sequels, and a designer clothes-wearing devil can't even get one? What is this nonsense?!)
But now, there's a glimmer of hope: Lauren Weisberger, author of the best-selling book upon which the first film was based, has written a follow-up novel in the form of the just-released "Revenge Wears Prada"—which means that there really could be a second movie! And also, that we'd better take a poll to see how everyone feels about that! So, fashion fiends, you tell us: Would you want to see another movie from the devil-wears-Prada universe?
