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

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

Can Anna Faris Be a Sitcom Star with CBS' Mom?

When Anna Faris was cast as the lead in Chuck Lorre's Mom on CBS, critics and fans alike were conflicted. Despite being a one-man hit machine, Lorre has an old-school, middlebrow style (see: Two and a Half Men) that has never been synonymous with the "smart" sitcom. see more

Woman of the Moment: Paranoia's Amber Heard

How You Know Her: The 27-year-old platinum blonde stunner found her niche in Hollywood playing a hyper-sexualized teen in the 2004 film Friday Night Lights, followed by steamy roles in Pineapple Express, Zombieland, and The Rum Diary. What You Don't Know: After dropping out of high school in Austin, Texas at 17, Heard crossed the country, eager to get in front of the camera. When a modeling stint in New York didn't pan out, she headed back West to L.A., where she cut her teeth on the Friday Night Lights set. But not having a high school diploma didn't see more

Woman of the Moment: Girl Most Likely's Kristen Wiig

How You Know Her: As Gilly, Aunt Linda, the Target lady, Penelope, or one of 20+ characters she played on her seven-year stint at Saturday Night Live (SNL) that launched her to superstardom as one of the reigning queens of comedy. After SNL, Wiig graduated from sketch comedy to big-screen star when she proved that women can play just as dirty as guys in Bridesmaids—and earned an Oscar nomination for best screenplay in the process. see more

Woman of the Moment: The To-Do List's Aubrey Plaza

How You Know Her: Aubrey Plaza is the queen of blank stares. Her deadpan April Ludgate made her a fan favorite on Parks and Recreation, a show already saturated with big-name comedic talent. Plaza applies her withering gaze and monotone zingers to almost every role she's played, including ones in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010) and Judd Apatow's Funny People (2009). see more

Woman of the Moment: The Newsroom's Olivia Munn

How You Know Her: Though she plays an economic news reporter on Aaron Sorkin's HBO series The Newsroom, and was a correspondent on Comedy Central's The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Ms. Munn is perhaps most famous for ... her legs. see more

Woman of the Moment: The Bridge's Diane Kruger

How You Know Her: With her old-world beauty and feminine grace, Diane Kruger is a director's dream, capable of nailing a range of roles from Helen (a.k.a. the face that launched a thousand ships) in Troy (2004), to Bridget von Hammersmark in Inglourious Basterds (2009) and Marie Antoinette in last year's Farewell, My Queen. see more

Woman of the Moment: The Way, Way Back's AnnaSophia Robb

How You Know Her: At just 19—the do-or-die age when child actors either find big-screen success or fall off the radar completely (or take some "personal time," a.k.a. rehab)—Robb has already logged movie credits a mile long. She's played opposite A-listers like Johnny Depp (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), Jeff Daniels (Because of Winn-Dixie), Hilary Swank (The Reaping), Val Kilmer (Have Dreams, Will Travel), and Charlize Theron (Sleepwalking) all before the age of legal intoxication. see more
