Zoe Sal­dana paid trib­ute to her fam­ily as she col­lected her star on the Hol­ly­wood Walk of Fame.

Ac­cept­ing the star, she said: “You are my ev­ery­thing. Ev­ery day you re­mind me to ap­pre­ci­ate life’s jour­ney. You keep me grounded. And you help me slow down when I need to take in a mo­ment.” Kevin Hart is shocked af­ter his friend, Jonathan Todd Jack­son, was charged with ex­tor­tion for al­legedly se­cretly video­tap­ing him get­ting close to another woman in Las Ve­gas in Au­gust and then tried sell­ing the footage to news out­lets.

“Mind blown. Hurt. At a loss for words and in dis­be­lief. Wow,” he said. San­dra Bul­lock chan­nels Bey­oncé on the red car­pet. The 53-year-old ac­tress doesn’t feel con­fi­dent in the spot­light. She said: “I try to chan­nel Bey­oncé. I do the same pose ev­ery time. “Bul­lock has been work­ing with Mindy Kal­ing, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hath­away, Ri­hanna and Dakota Fan­ning on ea­ger to please, Tully makes for a won­drously level-headed and in­sight­ful foil to Theron’s mid­dleaged mother, of­fer­ing Marlo not just a sound­ing board for her anx­i­eties about age­ing and in­ad­e­quacy, but a devil’s ad­vo­cate.

Tully prods Marlo to re­con­nect with some part of her­self that she be­lieves she has lost. Un­der Tully’s care, she be­gins to burn a lit­tle bit brighter again.

Maybe too bright. Things come to a head one night when the re­la­tion­ship be­tween Marlo and Tully, who seem to have de­vel­oped some sort of sym­bi­otic con­nec­tion, crosses the line be­tween the pro­fes­sional and, well, the reck­less.

Re­lax. This is no hor­ror film about a psy­chotic babysit­ter.

But the dy­namic be­tween these two women sud­denly shifts, dra­mat­i­cally. At the same time, Reit­man and Cody main­tain a firm grip, guid­ing their story of­froad not be­cause they’re lost, but be­cause that’s where they want to take us.

The choice is a bold and thrilling one, and it mostly works like a dream. – Wash­ing­ton Post
