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

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

Michael Douglas on Filming Last Vegas, Daily Kisses From De Niro, and Why He's Enjoying Acting Now More Than Ever

With a recent Emmy win for his role as Liberace in HBO's Behind the Candelabra and a brand-new comedy (Last Vegas) in which he tears up the Strip with fellow legends Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro, and Kevin Kline, Michael Douglas has emerged as 2013's unofficial king of Sin City—at least on screen. We caught up with the 69-year-old star right in the heart of Las Vegas, where he freely discussed his battle with tongue cancer, his movie-star batting average, his father's crazy old days on the Strip, the value of a good spray tan, and his daily De see more

Designer Thom Browne on Tight Suits, Amish Roots, and His Latest Foray, Car Interiors

Thom Browne and I share two things in common when we sit down to chat about the pimped out Infiniti Q50 he designed for Gilt.com. One is ankle cleavage—mine is because I'm wearing a long dress and his because he's got on one of his famous suits on. Second is our alma mater: Notre Dame. It's enough to get the mild-mannered designer, who, unlike the Lagerfelds of the world runs eight miles a day and sleeps in a twin bed, to open up a little bit about the man behind the shrunken suit. see more

Michael Fassbender on Oscar Buzz for 12 Years a Slave, Working With Brad Pitt, and How Director Steve McQueen Changed His Life

Actor Michael Fassbender doesn't exactly strive to make viewers like him. After getting his break playing the Northern Irish martyr Bobby Sands in director Steve McQueen's Hunger, some of his most notable roles have been as the supervillain Magneto in X-Men: First Class, a statutory rapist in the British indie Fish Tank, and a barely sympathetic sex addict in McQueen's highly lauded Shame. And yet, thanks to top-notch acting chops and charisma to burn, Fassbender, 36, has become one of the biggest names in the business. In the unflinching Oscar front-runner 12 Years a Slave, his latest venture and see more

Joseph Gordon-Levitt on Don Jon, Online Porn Through Feminist Eyes, and Scarlett Johansson as Jersey Girl

Ever since he broke out as a child star on TV's 3rd Rock From the Sun, Joseph Gordon-Levitt has gone nowhere but up (see a timeline of his career). After making a successful leap to the big screen, the 32-year-old shifted from cult fare like Brick and Mysterious Skin to leading-man roles in mainstream favorites like Looper and (500) Days of Summer. Proving he's got talent and vision behind the camera too, Gordon-Levitt launched his collaborative production company hitRECord (which will debut its own variety show on Pivot in January), and now he's enjoying serious kudos for Don Jon—his see more

Casey Wilson and John Stamos on set.
