Marion Cotillard Naked and Doomed: More Nudity in 'Psycho' Shower Scene Homage

Marion Cotillard 'Psycho' shower scene scream. Marion Cotillard naked and screaming in 'Psycho' shower scene A few years ago – more exactly, in Feb./March 2008 – Vanity Fair published a series of images honoring Alfred Hitchcock movies made in Hollywood.

Cotillard took home the Best Actress Oscar at the 2008 ceremony for her performance as Edith Piaf in Olivier Dahan's La Vie en Rose […]

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' premiere in Hollywood The most anticipated event since Nostradamus prophesied World War I, World War II, Climate Change Calamity, and Reality TV, Star Wars: The Force Awakens – brought to you not by George Lucas, but by Walt Disney (not the man, but the marketing & merchandising team) – is having its Milky Way premiere this evening right in the heart of Hollywood. If only the Paris Climate Talks had received this much media scrutiny and at least half – one tenth? – as much interest from the stormtrooping masses. So, tell us, how many pounds did […]

Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Garner co-star. Besides thanking those who worked on Dallas Buyers Club; his mother, “a high school dropout and a single mom” who “somehow … managed to make a better life for herself and her children”; Leto, apparently speaking for (many? some? a handful of?) other Oscar 2014 attendees, also remembered people's protests / revolutions in the Ukraine and Venezuela: “I want to say […]
