Q&A: Charlotte Gainsbourg Is Fine with Using a Porn Actor Double for Her Nymphomaniac Sex Scenes as Long as the Audience Knows It's All Pretend

Is there a more fearless working actor than Charlotte Gainsbourg? The Anglo-French beauty, who speaks like an angel, has plumbed some terrifyingly shocking depths—exhibiting psychosexual-violence in Antichrist (for which she won best actress at Cannes Film Festival), facing apocalypse in the epic Melancholia, and, most recently, exploring carnal extremes in Nymphomaniac, her cinematic reunion with Danish writer-director Lars von Trier. see more

Jeff Goldblum Wears Off-the-Rack Margiela, Plays Jazz Piano in L.A., and Hunts Down the Perfect Glasses for His Role in The Grand Budapest Hotel

Jeff Goldblum is 61. In person, even more than on screen, he looks, say, 48—tops. What keeps this inimitable, endlessly entertaining actor so spry and svelte that he can slip into off-the-rack Margiela suits? According to him, it's a steady intake of greens (chopped or liquefied), and a steady output of comically articulate work, like the kind he delivers in Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel (in theaters now) and Roger Michell's Le Week-End (opening March 14 in limited release). see more

Q&A: Ralph Fiennes on the Actor-Director Relationship, Dropping the F-Bomb, and His Role in Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel

In The Grand Budapest Hotel, the sweeping, whimsical new adventure from Wes Anderson (opening March 7), Ralph Fiennes wields the rat-a-tat-tat vocabulary of Cary Grant in his heyday and exudes the ambiguous sexual prowess of Montgomery Clift. His throwback of a character—1930s hotelier Gustave H.—leads the film's nesting-doll narrative, and his performance is being touted as the greatest in any of Anderson's movies. While he may be best known to a younger generation as the makeup-caked Voldemort from the Harry Potter franchise, Fiennes was first revered as a classically trained gem of the British stage, a pedigree that works see more

The Breakout: Scott Haze

Already a playwright, a director, a documentarian, and an impresario, 33-year-old Scott Haze—founder and creative director of North Hollywood's Sherry Theater—is now making a name for himself as an actor. His growing multi-hyphenate status makes Haze a bit like James Franco, his old friend (they met at Playhouse West) and frequent collaborator. When Franco tapped Haze to star as an unhinged, cave-dwelling necrophile in his film adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's Child of God, out next month, he went Method. He traveled to Sevierville, Tennessee, studied the locals' hill-country accent, and holed up in a cave. A few months later, he see more

Robin Wright is Back and More "Machiavellian" Than Ever in Season 2 of Netflix's House of Cards

DETAILS: As Claire Underwood, the wife of Kevin Spacey's conniving congressman on House of Cards, you make Lady MacBeth look like a piker. Some call her fierce, some sadistic. What do you call her? ROBIN WRIGHT: I liked the way [executive producer] David Fincher described her to me: strong, calculating, Machiavellian. He said, "You have to contain all of those adjectives in a marble bust." If Claire's moving or flailing, she loses her foundation. It's like martial arts—you have to keep your center solid or you'll be knocked over. House of Cards">see more

American Hustle's Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams on Singing, Dancing, Locking Lips, and Building Characters

From left: Jennifer Lawrence as Rosalyn, Amy Adams as Sydney. Christian Bale and Bradley Cooper may have top billing in American Hustle, director David O. Russell's madcap seventies crime epic, but it's the film's knockout dames, Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence, who ultimately steal the show. Adams plays Sydney, the lover and partner of conman Irving (Bale), while Lawrence plays Rosalyn, Irving's wife, who's poised to spoil his deal with crazed cop Richie (Cooper). Together, they prove why they're two of our finest actresses, inhabiting roles unlike any either star has played before. see more
