Genius, madman, or just the greatest actor of his generation? Shia LaBeouf seems destined for the superlatives one way or another, and frankly, he doesn’t give a damn what you think. Or, well, actually he really, really does, and doesn’t—he has a lot to say. Listen up.
As one of the top male models, he was the very image of the ideal man.

He'll get to flaunt both after landing one of the most coveted leads in Hollywood. So can the Irish lad handle another dose of being the stuff of sexual fantasies? Dornan seems to have it under control.
For a while, she was one of Hollywood's busiest and most versatile beauties, a glamour goddess and a dramatic powerhouse, a funny girl and a bond girl.

Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart aren't just two of the biggest, baddest, raddest actresses working today—they're leading a revolt against the antiquated notions of female movie-stardom. As their new film, the summery fairy tale extravaganza Snow White and the Huntsman hits theatres, they open up about good versus evil, art versus commerce, and why, when it comes to Hollywood, men no longer have the franchise on above-the-line rebellion.
Like a modern day Harry Houdini, he's fought free of the pinup cell block, the sitcom handcuffs, and the sealed box of one-dimensional roles. Now, with what some are calling his most mature performance to date, in Babel, one of the awards season's most talked-about movies, we asked Elvis Mitchell to pin down the secrets of Brad Pitt's success (escape not an option).
Former champ Mike Tyson dismantled his own life with the same efficiency and brutality that he dispatched opponents in the boxing ring, first losing his heavyweight title, then his reputation and finally, his freedom.
