    SARAH MICHELLE GELLAR IS OPEN TO APPEARING ON 'CRUEL INTENTIONS' REBOOT: Sarah Michelle Gellar is totally supportive of ABC's upcoming TV reboot of Cruel Intentions which will pick up 15 years after the movie left off. She told Us Weekly, "I think it's awesome. I think there are so many great stories to tell. Jordan Ross and Lindsey Rosin did a great job with the Cruel Intentions musical -- it was phenomenal. Roger Kumble -- who wrote and directed the film -- is at the helm, and anything Roger does is great. And they are great characters, so why shouldn't their story be told?" When asked about reprising her role as Kathryn from 1999 film, Sarah said, "I don't know. Never say never."

    Drew Barrymore is no longer trying to keep up with being hot in Hollywood. She appears in the March issue of Harper's Bazaar where she explains why being "hot" is more than just about looks and who she thinks is totally killing it right now.

    The 40-year-old mother of two says, "I think it's a huge mistake to think you have to burn bright for your whole life. You cannot sustain it. It's exhausting, and it's not very realistic. I don't think I'm hot right now necessarily, because I have all my irons in a bunch of different fires. I'm writing. I'm doing makeup. I'm doing design. I'm expanding Flower into different categories." Drew also explains, "Hot is a state of mind. It's an energy. You're hot when you're motivated. It means you want it and you're going after it. Hot isn't about being on the A list of having a hot body. It's literally people who are on fire. Like Lena Dunham is on fire. Amy Schumer. Louis C.K. I think their brands of comedy and observational life stuff are some of the coolest I've seen in so many years."


    Helen Mirren does not believe that the Academy should be blamed for the lack of diversity in this year's Oscar nominees.

    She appeared on England's Channel 4 News earlier this week where she was asked if she felt the Oscars were behind the times for failing to have black nominees for two years in a row. Helen responded, "I think it's unfair to attack the academy. It just so happened it went that way. Idris Elba absolutely would have been nominated for an Oscar but not enough people saw -- or wanted to see -- a film about child soldiers." The Oscar winner added, "I'm saying that the issue we need to be looking at is what happens before the film gets to the Oscars. What kind of films are made, and the way in which they're cast, and the scripts...so it's those things that are much more influential ultimately than who stands there with an Oscar."


    Chris Rock says in the new issue of Essence magazine that black women have it the worst in Hollywood when it comes to decent roles and decent pay.

    He tells the magazine, "Black women get paid less than everybody in Hollywood. Everybody's talking about Jennifer Lawrence. Talk to Gabrielle Union. If you want to hear stories, talk to Nia Long. Talk to Kerry Washington. They would love to get to Jennifer Lawrence's place, or just be treated with the same amount of respect. Black women are the least represented on-screen. They just are. You can go see a lot of movies and there's not one black woman in there with, like, a real part. It's a real, real, real problem."

    • Chris also explains, "I've never done a movie, any movie, the silliest movie, where someone, some studio person hasn't gone, 'Does the girl have to be Black?' It happens every time."
