JT and Cameron Diaz still love each other
It’s no secret the new R-rated comedy “Bad Teacher” reunites former celebrity couple Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake. But wasn't it just a little awkward on set for the two famous exes? Apparently not.
"The secret is that we're adults and we've moved on,” Diaz told CNN on Monday at the press junket for the film. “I mean Justin and I love each other. We care about each other. There's no reason for us to be angry or have resentment...Life goes on, and both of our lives have gone on. We've both had a lot of love in our lives since."
Likewise, Timberlake did not shy away from his continued affinity for his ex-girlfriend.

Trailer Park gets gritty with Coen brothers' latest
The Oscar-winning Coen brothers, who were behind the acclaimed “No Country for Old Men,” are back with another dusty thriller, "True Grit."
Joel and Ethan Coen directed an all-star cast - including Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, Josh Brolin and newcomer Hailee Steinfeld - in the revenge tale of a 14-year-old girl determined to capture her father’s killer.
“True Grit” releases in theaters on Christmas Day, and incidentally, Bridges’ long awaited “Tron Legacy” hits theaters just days earlier on December 17th. Looks like he’ll be racing himself for box office gold!

Trailer Park: Tyler Perry's 'For Colored Girls' shows off power cast
Not many in the industry could assemble the power cast brought together by Tyler Perry for his new film, “For Colored Girls."
The recently released trailer shows glimpses of star players Janet Jackson, Thandi Newton, Anika Noni Rose, Kerry Washington, Loretta Devine, Kimberly Elise, Phylicia Rashad and Academy Award winner Whoopi Goldberg, who all join forces for an intense cinematic retelling of Ntozake Shange’s award-winning play, “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf."
Like its literary inspiration, the film will follow the lives of several black women who are only known by a color: “Lady in Yellow,” “Lady in Purple,” “Lady in Blue,” and so forth. Each woman deals with a different conflict such as love, abandonment, rape and abortion until the end, when all the women unite for a laying on of the hands.

'Black Swan,' 'Cool It' stir up buzz in Toronto
As the 35th annual Toronto International Film Festival continues to roll along, buzz around certain films continues to mount.
I can't tell you how many times someone has asked me whether I've seen Danny Boyle's survival tale, "127 Hours." While a screening of the film has not yet worked it's way into my packed schedule, I can tell you when several journalists in separate groups are all chatting about the same movie, it means something.
Likewise, Darren Aronofksy's dark drama about rival ballet dancers, "Black Swan," has picked up some momentum, especially for the performance of its star, Natalie Portman.
