How 'Movie 43' landed all those A-list stars

If you're anything like us, you saw the trailers for "Movie 43" and immediately took notice of how many major stars were cast to do ridiculous things.

What's next for Jennifer Lopez?

Without a new season of "American Idol" to pencil in her calendar, Jennifer Lopez is eyeing some studio time.

The actress and singer told CNN Tuesday while discussing her new crime thriller, "Parker," that the past few years haven't allowed for extra time to put toward her career.

“With 'Idol' I had that for two years, and right before that, you know, it was like baby time [with twins Max and Emme], and I wasn’t doing as much," the 43-year-old said. "But now I’m back to it. Now, look out!”

Why Barbra Streisand signed up for 'Guilt Trip'

"The Guilt Trip" is the perfect title for Barbra Streisand's new movie, because the actress tells CNN she would've had one if she'd passed on starring in the comedy.

Streisand, 70, has been much more selective about her film roles as of late, but this upcoming flick co-starring Seth Rogen swayed her into saying yes.
