Being the face of the revolution against President Snow pays.

Forbes reveals that Jennifer Lawrence is the highest paid actress over the past 12 months. At a whopping $52 million, she soars above her compatriots. No doubt a good chunk of that coin comes from The Hunger Games franchise. Her lucrative endorsement deals for brands such as Dior certainly pad her bank account quite nicely as well.

Coming in at the runner-up slot is Scarlett Johansson at $35 million thanks to The Avengers and Lucy. Rounding out the Top 3 is Melissa McCarthy at $23 million.

Last year’s top dog Sandra Bullock falls to No. 15 on this year’s list, earning $8 million according to the publication. Check out below which other actresses are laughing all the way to the bank.

It turns out the dimwitted character he played on Parks and Recreation might not have been a far stretch for a young Chris Pratt. He was quite naive and extremely trusting when he first arrived in Los Angeles. If, this story is true.

The 35-year-old shares the details about his first headshots. Apparently, a random photographer SLASH stranger approached him on the streets of West Hollywood. He invited him back to his place to shoot him for free. As it turns out, it was legit and he was just a generous guy. But, can you imagine if he was a psychopath?

Melissa McCarthy was also on the Graham Norton Show and dished about her first headshots as well. She was surprised the show got their hands on them, given that she thought she had the only existing copies in her possession. Guess she was wrong. Check out both hilarious clips below.

Movie Review: The Heat

In: Matt, Movies

Melissa McCarthy returns to the big screen today alongside Sandra Bullock in the new comedy, The Heat. Bridesmaids director Paul Feig directs the film, so naturally I went in expecting another hilarious comedy.

The story has Sandra Bullock reprise her role from Miss Congeniality 1 and 2 as the stuck up FBI agent Sarah Ashburn, while McCarthy plays her unlikely, rough around the edges partner Shannon Mullins. The two have been unwillingly paired up and assigned to catching a drug lord. The two clashing personalities make for a hilarious combination and while predictable, garnered many laughs from yours truly.

One of Hollywood’s leading funny ladies right now, Melissa McCarthy recently stopped by Sesame Street to hang out with Elmo and learn some choreography. Why? Because the word of the day was “Choreographer.”

In the clip below, Melissa and Elmo decide they want to learn some dance moves and Elmo says he knows a good choreographer that can help them. When Elmo comes back with the choreographer is confused. “That’s a penguin…” Elmo responds, “A penguin who loves to make up dance moves!” The first move on the agenda is the “Flappawappa Boom Boom.

Watch Elmo, Melissa and the Penguin all dancing together below.

Tonight (Friday, February 8), the highly anticipated comedy, Identity Thief is opening in theaters starring the hilarious Melissa McCarthy and Jason Bateman. I’m so excited to see this movie because it looks so funny and also because I’ll watch anything with Melissa McCarthy in it.

The film centers around a man named Sandy (Bateman) and a woman named Diana (McCarthy) who steals his identity. When Sandy finds out who has stolen his identity, it’s his mission to track her down and stop her. Once he’s found her, they end up having to travel together to get the whole situation resolved. The following is a scene from the movie when the two are at a restaurant and Diana uses some of her techniques to get what she wants from the server, played by Ellie Kemper (The Office, Bridesmaids)

As I mentioned, the film comes out tonight and it’s bound to do some damage at the box office this weekend. Enjoy the hilarious scene below!

Although I haven’t seen This Is 40 yet myself, I love a good blooper reel. I’ve heard mixed reviews for the movie but one thing is for certain, bloopers are always a hit.

In the following video, cast members Jason Segal, Leslie Mann, Paul Rudd, Chris O’Dowd, Megan Fox, Melissa McCarthy & more breakout in laughter as they try to push through some very awkward scenes or hilariously obscene dialogue. One hilarious scene is with Segal, O’Dowd and Fox. When the guys learn that Fox is single, O’Dowd says, “We both would like to know for one…we both want to make love in you.” Needless to say, they all burst out in laughter. Seriously, how could you deliver a line like that and not laugh? I sure couldn’t.

Watch the video below if you want a good laugh to wrap up your week. Enjoy!

This coming January 2013 is Vanity Fair‘s first ever comedy issue and it’s guest edited by Judd Apatow. For the issue, Apatow brought together his most talented friends and idols to contribute, write, and pose for a 19-page Mark Seliger portfolio. There are three different covers to this issue, with four different comedians looking fabulously funny on each. I’ve included all three of them below and you can vote for which one you like best.

This is only the third time since Graydon Carter became the editor of the magazine 20 years ago that someone has been a guest editor. The last guest editor was Bono when he guest-edited the Africa issue in July of 2007. Before that, Tom Ford guest-edited a Hollywood Portfolio in March of 2006. With the comedy genre booming these days, Carter felt like it was the perfect time for such an issue and that Judd Apatow was the perfect choice for the job.

In the first cover shown above, Jim Carrey is dressed up as Evel Knievel, Maya Rudolph is doing an ancient Egyptian like Steve Martin in his King Tut days, Will Ferrell is done up like a corny cowboy, and Amy Poehler as a 60s go-go girl. Check out the other two covers below, featuring comedians like Kristin Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, and more.

I freaking love Melissa McCarthy! Back in September, the trailer debuted for a comedy she is starring in alongside Jason Bateman called Identity Theft where she plays a criminal and it looks effing funny. Now, yet another trailer for a comedy she is starring in alongside Sandra Bullock has debuted called The Heat and instead of playing criminals, the two funny ladies play an unlikely FBI duo.

In The Heat, Bullock plays uptight FBI Special Agent Sarah Ashburn and McCarthy plays foul-mouthed Boston cop Shannon Mullins. The two couldn’t be more incompatible, but when they join forces to bring down a ruthless drug lord, they become the last thing anyone expected: buddies.

The movie is helmed by Paul Feig, the director of Bridesmaids and it opens in theaters on April 5, 2013. Check out the HILARIOUS trailer below. It seriously made my day.
