October 2014

Sitting down for a no-holds-barred conversation with the star of Gone Girl and David Fincher, who directed him in this fall's most controversial film, you learn many things: about humor and media manipulation and, yes, movies that boldly push the envelope.

September 2014

Award-winning actor. Doting father. International DJ. And now movie star. This month, the 41-year-old Brit follows his acclaimed turn as Nelson Mandela with the psychological thriller No Good Deed. Is there anything the man can't do (other than sit still)?

August 2014

Long before he became the tabloid fixture who put a ring on America's Sweetheart, Theroux fashioned a life as the consummate downtown–New York do-it-all–acting, writing, painting, bartending, scavenging discarded furniture, and collecting tongue depressors. But his days of dive bars and Dumpster diving are behind the rakish renaissance man: With his leading role in the white-hot new HBO series The Leftovers and his impending marriage to Jennifer Aniston, he's learning the joys and pains of stardom.

June/July 2014

The actors are much more than costars: They're kindred spirits who run and race—and sometimes rage—together. Their latest onscreen reunion comes in this month's X-Men: Days of Future Past. Offscreen, they met in a North London pub for a drink-up and a few rounds of straight talk on superheroes, Shakespeare, snogging Angelina, and the meaning of true bromance.

May 2014

With the end of his hit show, White Collar, in sight, the 36-year-old actor was looking to take risks, challenge himself, and change how he's seen. He succeeded on all counts playing an AIDS-afflicted writer in HBO's adaptation of The Normal Heart. The grueling role took a huge emotional and physical toll, but Bomer wouldn't have it any other way.

April 2014

At 43, Game of Thrones star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is finally poised to enter the ranks of leading men. What's taken the Danish sex symbol so long? He's always had looks and talent to burn. But it took playing a vain, murderous, incestuous swordsman to make us love him.

March 2014

When it comes to deciding what to wear this spring, who better to take your cues from than the industry's top models? Plus: behind-the-scenes photos from the March cover shoot.

February 2014

This year, the 34-year-old actor begins to put his once-in-a-lifetime character, Breaking Bad's Jesse Pinkman, in the rearview mirror with two roles: as a falsely imprisoned street racer in next month's Need for Speed and as Joshua in Ridley Scott's Exodus.

December 2013/January 2014

It's the end of the entertainment industry as we know it—and we feel fine. That's because the revolution is being televised, streamed, and re-tweeted, spearheaded by bold A-listers like Christian Bale—who trades in his cape for overalls in the gritty Out of the Furnace and an epic comb-over in American Hustle this month—not to mention next-gen financiers, cutting-edge comedians, populist TV-programming execs, disruptive documentarians, and more.

November 2013

The 30-year-old Aussie actor follows up his turn as a Formula One play-boy in Rush by lowering the hammer in this month's Thor: The Dark World. But Hollywood's newly minted golden boy is as down-to-earth as they come.

October 2013

Meet the producers of lifesaving technology, architects building the structures of tomorrow, designers redefining your fitness regimen, inventors of energy sources that will power future technology, and genre-spanning creative forces like our cover guy and resident Renaissance man, Pharrell Williams. They are all gifted mavericks who have bucked conventional wisdom to create things that are better, faster, stronger, or simply more beautiful than ever before.

September 2013

Pared-down fall essentials prove that keeping it simple is still the most stylish way to dress.

August 2013

The rare star who checks all the boxes—handsome, smart, funny, married to Blake Lively—Ryan Reynolds is also one of Hollywood's most unassuming actors. This month, he stars in the action comedy R.I.P.D., but it's upcoming art-house fare like Queen of the Night and The Voices that takes him out of his comfort zone into what he calls "shit-your-pants fear." Add this to the list: He's got balls, too.

June/July 2013

Planet Earth, meet your new Superman, Henry Cavill, a mild-mannered 30-year-old Brit now carrying the blue-and-red-costumed franchise on his broad, if untested, shoulders. Can his gritty, brooding turn in this summer's Man of Steel deliver stardom faster than a speeding bullet, or will it be his career kryptonite?

May 2013

This month, the 38-year-old Oscar nominee stars in the third installment of the $1 billion comedy franchise The Hangover, hot on the heels of acclaimed roles in The Place Beyond the Pines and Silver Linings Playbook. Cooper sat down for a candid conversation about the dangers of playing assholes, the passing of his father, and what it's like living with his mom again.

April 2013

The "McConaissance" fueled by Magic Mike is picking up steam: The 43-year-old Texan stars in this month's coming-of-age film Mud, with prestigious roles following later this year in the AIDS drama Dallas Buyers Club and Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street. On location in New Orleans, he shows that while he's still the bongo-playing bro we know and love, he's also become a family man who's no longer satisfied with just doing all right, all right, all right.

March 2013

Actor, author, artist, A-lister: James Franco works 19-hour days to keep his many balls in the air. Whether he's playing the blockbuster lead (in this month's Oz the Great and Powerful) or a creepy character part (Spring Breakers, also this month), crafting experimental video art, or portraying "Franco" on General Hospital, he never fails to keep audiences guessing. So who is James Franco? He'll tell you, but only in a sonnet.

February 2013

Garrett Hedlund is a walking contradiction, a free spirit with intense discipline and drive: Early on, the 28-year-old Midwesterner realized that to stand out from all the other would-be stars with matinee-idol looks, he had to be smarter than they were—so he hit the books. That's why, even though he's gained attention in big-budget epics like Troy and Tron: Legacy, his breakout turn in the long-gestating adaptation of Jack Kerouac's On the Road represents his true coming-out party.

December 2012 / January 2013

Forget all those hand-wringing headlines bemoaning plummeting ticket sales and tired industry groupthink: Hollywood is in the midst of a full-fledged renaissance. It's being spurred by forward-thinking A-listers like Leonardo DiCaprio, who stars in this month's Django Unchained, not to mention a fresh class of actor-auteurs, visionary showrunners, creative production collectives, and more. These innovators bring bold ideas—about everything from upstart marketing models to capturing Chinese audiences to creating the programming of the future—that are transforming what you watch and how you watch it. Here's a definitive guide to the people and ideas turning the entertainment industry upside down.

November 2012

Once upon a time, Colin Farrell provided the paparazzi with endless material: supermodel arm candy, a sex tape with a Playboy centerfold, and plenty of drunken escapades. These days the 36-year-old vet is all about earning sweat equity—by working himself mercilessly in films like this month's Seven Psychopaths and relentlessly purifying himself in the heat of the sauna. How a legendary Hollywood bad boy learned to give a schvitz.

October 2012

How many lives can a Hollywood star have? There was Early Ben (an Oscar winner for Good Will Hunting), Big Ben (blockbuster busts Pearl Harbor, Daredevil), Bennifer (the Gigli-J.Lo phase). And then the Real Ben, the actor-director who resurrected his career with Gone Baby Gone and The Town. Now he's back with Argo, a genre-bending 1970s-style political thriller-comedy that ensures you'll never underestimate Ben again.

September 2012

The 31-year-old A-lister never fails to surprise. His ultra-intense performance as a hardened South Central Los Angeles cop in End of Watch is yet another bold move in a career full of them: Brokeback Mountain's closeted cowboy, Jarhead's jacked-up Marine, Love and Other Drugs' smarmy pharmaceutical rep. It's even harder to isolate his off-screen essence. He's the boy next door one minute, a brooding artiste the next. Who's the real Jake Gyllenhaal? Don't ask him.

August 2012

The once-in-a-generation swimmer is recharged, relaxed, refocused, and ready to go one more round. How the country's most decorated Olympic athlete—and the most amazing American body ever—stays committed to his grueling routine, relentlessly building the physique that has lapped the competition.

June/July 2012

The toned, tattooed 33-year-old Maroon 5 frontman with the A-list arm candy and the Jaggerlike moves doesn't mind looking the part of every rock-star fantasy. But as he shows on NBC's The Voice, the truth is he's as sweet as an AM-radio love song. And he won't stop the charm offensive until every last one of us is on Team Adam.

May 2012

The 30-year-old, Bud Light-chugging, Beantown-bred star of The Avengers is widely—and correctly—perceived as the ultimate guy's guy. But beneath the bro persona lies a serious student of Buddhism, an unrepentant song-and-dance man, and a guy who talks to his mom about sex. And farts.

April 2012

This former street hustler from South London turned himself into a bankable action star the old-fashioned way: one bare-knuckle role at a time. At 44, the tough-as-nails Brit has a Victoria's Secret supermodel on his sizable arm, his choice of fast cars, and three surefire blockbusters on the docket for 2012. So he'll let up on the gas now, right? Not bloody likely.

March 2012

Plucked from relative obscurity to star in The Hunger Games, Liam Hemsworth talks to DETAILS about the scrutiny that comes with carrying the hottest franchise since Twilight, sibling rivalry (his brother is Chris Hemsworth of Thor), falling for Miley Cyrus, his American culinary adventures—think Krispy Kreme and White Castle—and his fascination with squirrels.

February 2012

Channing Tatum possesses the gentlemanly glamour of a classic Hollywood matinee idol—and the fun-loving demeanor of an Alabama good-old guy who once made rent as a stripper. He can carry a romance (The Vow), a comedy (21 Jump Street), or any number of action flicks. He's a guy who can, in a day, shoot 400 bullets from three guns, down nine shots of bourbon, help fix a smoking car for a stranger in trouble—and teach his dog, Lulu, moves from Dirty Dancing. Is he a bundle of contradictions or just a guy having the time of his life?

December 2011/January 2012

Jeremy Renner is just your average construction-working, pygmy-goat-raising, unnervingly intense, salt-of-the-earth two-time Academy Award nominee. After struggling to break through for two decades, the 40-year-old actor is now collecting starring roles in mega-budget action movies (Mission: Impossible—Ghost Protocol, The Avengers, and The Bourne Legacy) like they're going out of style. Even the most driven guys need a hobby, right?

November 2011

Everywhere you turn, the male form is being idealized. On TV screens, in Hollywood, on billboards, laptops and smartphones—even our own mirrors. We've all become more body-conscious: working out more, eating better, dressing in slimmer clothes, getting the hedges trimmed, and maybe even a nip or tuck. Have we entered a grand age of self-improvement? Or is it narcissism? Or homoeroticism? It's all those things and more—41 in all. These are the moments that changed the way we see the male body.

October 2011

He was born into an oil mega-fortune, enjoyed a fantasy-island childhood, married a former model, and went from playing asshole twins (a bit too well) in The Social Network to next-leading-man status in record time. So why wouldn't you hate Armie Hammer? As it turns out, the 25-year-old star of next month's J. Edgar is just about the humblest, funniest, most easygoing guy around.

September 2011

For more than a decade, Ashton Kutcher has been making friends, fans, and followers as an actor. Recently, the new star of Two and a Half Men has been championing the digital tools that are transforming the way we interact. And through it all, he's blowing up the stereotype of the tech nerd.

August 2011

Shia LaBeouf has thrown as many punches as he has parties, he has a rap sheet as long as his filmography, and when he's not pissing off studio heads, he's messing around with another guy's girlfriend. But on top of it all, the 25-year-old Transformers star might also be Hollywood's most honest man.

June/July 2011

The Canadian-born star is suiting up to play America's next great big-screen superhero in Green Lantern, but he's still a self-deprecating, dick-joke-making regular guy.

May 2011

No sooner had the 43-year-old quit acting (again) than he scored an Oscar nomination for The Kids Are All Right. Now he's making his directorial debut, suiting up to be the next Hulk, and adjusting to life as a leading man. Strange how busy retirement can be.

April 2011

With a new solo album and a new look, the 21-year-old just wants you to see him as more than a tween idol. Can you help a Jonas Brother out?

March 2011

In its new section, DETAILS knocks readers into shape with a 30-day program designed by Core Performance founder Mark Verstegen and a celebrity workout with FX's Lights Out star Pablo Schreiber. DETAILS shows you how to get the ideal body, raise your game with the most stylish workout gear, and answers the pickiest nutritional questions—like can carbs be more addictive than cocaine?

February 2011

The breakout star of 2010's defining movie is the new big-screen Spider-Man and is hurtling toward the A-list. Yet the 27-year-old Brit is still loath to leave behind the life of a struggling actor who pukes before big auditions. Good luck with that.

December 2010

The man behind Mr. Schuester provides grown-ups with a reason to watch Glee, but he has even greater adult-contemporary ambitions—like becoming the next Michael Bublé.

November 2010

He earned his stripes as a swaggering Kirk in last year's Star Trek. Now he appears opposite Denzel Washington in this month's Unstoppable—a title that nicely describes the career trajectory of this handsome young star.

Hollywood's next superstar opens up about his relationship with Vanessa Hudgens, a bad case of poison oak, and why he doesn't want to play the field.

August 2010

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is now a bona-fide Hollywood star. But that doesn't mean the Internet entrepreneur with a fondness for weed and French poetry has stopped exploring his options.

June/July 2010

With his rakish charm—and a seriously ripped body—on full display this summer in The A-Team, the star of The Hangover is about to become America's next A-list action hero. He can't believe it either.

May 2010

The recipe for a hit television show is simple: one part sex, two parts blood, and three parts played by actors Stephen Moyer, Ryan Kwanten, and Alexander Skarsgård. The men of True Blood explain how they make the magic happen.

April 2010

James Cameron turned 33-year-old Aussie Sam Worthington into the star of the biggest movie in history, but just who is the man beneath the blue skin? The kind of driven perfectionist who once sold everything he owned to keep himself focused.

March 2010

In honor of DETAILS' 10th anniversary, it's Robert Pattinson like you've never seen him before. The Twilight megastar goes old Hollywood glamour in our sexy photo shoot. Plus, the heartthrob opens up about his unbelievable luck, being groped by a lady elephant, and why Zac Efron should get shot before he does.
