Sam Rockwell and Leslie Bibb Have Been Together For Way Longer Than You Knew
Sam Rockwell delivered an emotional and moving speech while accepting his best supporting actor Golden Globe award for his role in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, but before he took the stage, he got a sweet smooch from his date and long-term girlfriend, Leslie Bibb, that left him covered in lipstick. But exactly who is Leslie Bibb? She's an accomplished actor in her own right and has been performing for decades!

After scoring small parts in films like The Skulls and shows like Home Improvement and Just Shoot Me!, Bibb landed a starring role as preppy Brooke McQueen on the short-lived WB show Popular, which lasted for just two seasons. Popular may not have lasted long, but it introduced

Minnie Driver Explains Why She Slammed Matt Damon's Disparaging Comments on Sexual Misconduct
Matt Damon is the latest male star to offer his two cents on the recent spate of sexual misconduct allegations in Hollywood, and his disparaging comments were met with lots of eye-rolls - as well as a rebuke from his former girlfriend and costar Minnie Driver. In a recent interview with ABC News, Matt was asked about the allegations of sexual assault and harassment against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein - whose former company, Miramax, produced many of Matt's movies - and comedian Louis C.K.; he told Peter Travers that those accused are being put into "one big bucket" and that there's a "spectrum of behavior" when it comes to sexual misconduct. "There's a difference between, you know, patting someone on the butt and rape or child molestation, right?" he said. "Both of those behaviors need to be confronted and eradicated without question, but they shouldn't be conflated, right?" Matt also

21 Thoughts People Had While Watching Fox's A Christmas Story Live! Musical

Fox's Grease Live! might have been a roaring success, but the reception for the network's musical take on A Christmas Story has been mixed, to say the least.

Others, however, found it to be more akin to the disaster that was ABC's Dirty Dancing reboot. So, (*Oprah voice*) what is the truth? Take a look at the best tweets about A Christmas Story Live! below. Related13 Can't-Miss Moments From Fox's A Christmas Story Live Shout out to everyone involved with A Christmas Story Live!

Ranking the 20 Best Movie Musicals of All Time, From ‘Singin’ in the Rain’ to ‘Lemonade’

Ranking the 20 Best Movie Musicals of All Time, From ‘Singin’ in the Rain’ to ‘Lemonade’
The musical often feels like a relic of a long-dead Hollywood studio system, but it remains a genre that captures movies’ ability to create story worlds that move freely between reality and fantasy. The worst examples come from filmmakers who give license to music, color, and movement run amok; the best musicals transcend artifice and integrate songs that become expressions of pure character emotion. It offers endless possibilities, but success demands a complete mastery of the medium.

Very few current stars could learn the choreography of Busby Berkeley, Jerome Robbins, or Bob Fosse, and adapting a medium developed and most suited for the stage requires innovative direction. In translating the joy of a live musical to the magic of cinema, some things are easily lost in the shuffle.
