• Scarlett Johansson Labels Dylan Farrow's Open Letter Scarlett Johansson Labels Dylan Farrow's Open Letter Cast your mind back to last month, when Dylan Farrow penned an open letter which was published in The New York Times, detailing the sexual abuse she claims she suffered at the hands of her father, the acclaimed writer/director Woody Allen. In it Farrow mentioned a list of celebrities who she rebuked for working with Allen, stating: "What if it had been your child, Cate Blanchett? Louis CK? Alec Baldwin? What if it had been you, Emma Stone? Or you, Scarlett Johansson?"

    Now, for the first time, Scarlett Johansson has spoken out over the letter, calling Dylan Farrow's decision to name her and other actors, "irresponsible." In fact the actress who starred in several Woody Allen films, such as Match Point, Scoop, and Vicky Cristina Barcelona, criticizes Farrow for naming her. "I think it's irresponsible to take a bunch of actors that will have a Google alert on and to suddenly throw their name into a situation that none of us could possibly knowingly comment on," Johansson told The

    You're searching for direction but looking in all the wrong places. Figuring out the right path takes more than just looking at the numbers. You need to put two and two together, for one -- pun upon pun intended. It's the next step you need to anticipate, not the ones behind you.

    Don't make any promises you can't keep -- especially to yourself. The goals you set today could be setting you up for failure and nothing more. Don't overdo it, even when it comes to something as seemingly innocent as your own self confidence.

  • 8 Super Annoying (and Not at All Endearing) Tech Peeves8 Super Annoying (and Not at All Endearing) Tech PeevesWe can't escape technology. We live it. We breathe it. It's everywhere. A new day doesn't occur without a state-of-the-art thing grabbing our attention and getting us addicted. While technology and social media are changing how we live, what we do, and how we interact, it's also doing something else. It's creating a whole new set of annoyances.

    Here are 8 super annoying tech peeves we've grown accustomed to:

    1. Using Cell Phones at Red Lights
    I find myself guilty of this and know I annoy people - and know how annoyed I am with people who do this. You are at a red light, it turns green - except the person in front of you is too busy paying attention to their phone to GO. Okay, we get you are not texting and driving, but it's annoying none the less.

    2. Facebook Tag
    You are at a party, had a few too many drinks, one of your good ole' "friends" snaps a group photo, and, of course, tags you. This is exactly why I make sure that auto-tagging is off. Gotta love drunken tagged

  • Lost Heath Ledger Interview Reveals Happy, Thoughtful Actor with a Lot of Nervous EnergyLost Heath Ledger Interview Reveals Happy, Thoughtful Actor with a Lot of Nervous EnergyHe's been gone for six years. Heath Ledger's tragic overdose at the age of 28 cut short a promising career. Moreover, we lost a person who was - by all accounts - a doting dad and very nice guy. What a sad loss.

    But we can turn the clock back to 2005, just before Brokeback Mountain was released, thanks to this lost interview - newly animated - from Blank on Blank.

    Christine Pines interviewed Ledger for Entertainment Weekly while they strolled through his Brooklyn neighborhood. He talks about holing up with new love Michelle Williams in a little trailer during the filming of Brokeback. This was right after his daughter Matilda had been born, before his split with Michelle, and before the depression/downward spiral (no one knows for sure) that led to his accidental overdose.

  • "Alright, alright, alright!"

    All the best Matthew McConaughey impressions -- as well as his own Oscars® acceptance speech -- begin or end with his iconic catchphrase, "All right, all right, all right."

    Guess who he stole it from? Jim Morrison. Sounds about right.

    McConaughey's catchphrase originated in the film Dazed and Confused. While prepping for his role in that movie as David Wooderson, McConaughey listened to a live album of The Doors. In between songs, Jim Morrison chats/rambles/rants, as he is wont to do, saying: "Alright, alright, alright, alright." McConaughey described it as four times. It sounds more like six times to me. (You be the judge.)

    At any rate, McConaughey shortened it to 3 "alrights," and a catchphrase was born that would one day usher in the McConaissance that we are now experiencing through the success of HBO's True Detective and his Oscar® win for Dallas Buyers Club.

    We bet there's at least $200 hidden in their sports gear and electronics - here's how to find it.

    With new "gotta-have-it" upgrades coming out practically every year, technology depreciates fast, so if you're unloading old gadgets, try to do so quickly. One exception: The market for video games -- especially older ones like the original versions of Wii Sports and Pokémon -- is brisk.

    Bruckheimer's movies and television series have not only earned 41 Oscar nominations, 77 Emmy nominations, landed him on the Forbes celebrity 100 list and given him a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, they have become part of our collective culture itself. I'm 39, and as I read the book and see images from Flashdance and Top Gun, I not only recall seeing the movies themselves, I see myself cutting the necks out of all my t-shirts in elementary school. I see bomber jackets on all my friends in middle school. I see Tom Cruise haircuts on the boys who wouldn't dance with me in 7th grade. I recall imagining that one day I would grow up and wear
