Johnny Depp is having problems with long-time girlfriend Vanessa Paradis, according to tabloid reports.

But there are no such issues between the A-lister and the American public, the results of a new Harris Poll make clear: Depp has been voted the country's favorite actor for the second year in a row.

  • Denzel Washington Picture

Depp tops the ball over two second-place heavyweights, Denzel Washington and Clint Eastwood; while Tom Hanks and, apparently, John Wayne round out the top five.

Completing the top 10, in order of finish: George Clooney, Sandra Bullock, Harrison Ford, Will Smith and Adam Sandler, meaning no voters actually saw Jack and Jill.

Do you agree with these results? Who from the top five, is your favorite?

For at least one night next month, Target will be the most popular store on earth. And not simply because you can pick up school supplies, a new wardrobe, a basketball and a week's worth of groceries in its aisles.

The chain has reached an agreement with Summit Entertainment to premiere the first clip from The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2.

The major event will take place at approximately 500 locations around the country and kick off at 11 p.m. on February 10. At midnight, those in attendance will have a chance to purchase another exclusive:

A Limited-Collector's Edition DVD of Breaking Dawn Part 1 that includes... wait for it... a prop flower from Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward's (Robert Pattinson) wedding! You might say this promotion is right on target, eh, fans?!?

Lindsay Lohan is ready to sign on to play Elizabeth Taylor, according to reports.

It looks like she's nearing a deal to make it official, as she's also working to complete her community service faster than required to clear the way for filming.

At Lohan's probation progress hearing, she is expected to receive glowing reports as a model morgue employee. If that goes as planned, she should be good.

The plan is to sign the deal early next week, barring unforeseen setbacks.

The Lifetime film will focus on Taylor's tumultuous relationship with two-time husband Richard Burton, and producers were reportedly keen on Lohan - like Taylor, a star at an extremely young age and often maligned - to star as the icon.

This is just one of many projects LiLo is reportedly considering.

We made fun of the notion that Lindsay Lohan Playboy photos could revive her career, but she made nearly a million bucks, and is actually getting more offers than she's received in years due to her popularity - and growing maturity.

Consider THG humbled.

Forgive us for a moment, but: EEEEK!!!!!

Okay, sorry. We're back.

But Lionsgate has released its first official promotional photo of Elizabeth Banks in the key Hunger Games role of Effie Trinket and it's safe to say we're a tad bit excited over it.

Elizabeth Banks as Effie Trinket

"A fun part of being an actor and a chameleon is taking on those looks," Banks told The Huffington Post of the transformation into this Capitol spokesperson. "Effie has a really theatrical, over-the-top, completely not me look to her. I'm very excited for people to see my portrayal. I have no idea if people are going to be into it. I hope they are."

The Hunger Games trailer, of course, has already been released; while the film comes out on March 23.

Bridesmaids 2 is looking like a go, and star Kristen Wiig is looking like she may be involved in the sequel after all, despite earlier reports to the contrary.

Co-star Wendi McLendon-Covey says Wiig "never said that she didn't want to do it… All she said was that she's not working on it right this minute."

"Someone gave her the opportunity to write and direct her own film so, duh, she's going to do that first,” McLendon-Covey said, according to Movie Fanatic.

“So no. I think all she's waiting for is for her and Annie [Mumolo] to come up with an idea that's equally as good. It just won't happen in the next six months."

Bridesmaids producer Judd Apatow has also added his two cents and his only hangup is from an artistic standpoint - can the sequel be as good as the first?

“We don't want to do it unless it's great,” Apatow said. “I don't think anyone has the brain space to think about it yet. Hopefully that can begin this year."

McLendon-Covey then offered a few rough ideas.

"There's always divorce parties," McLendon-Covey said. "There's always baby showers. There's all kinds of hideous things like that that women do."

Lindsay Lohan is in "early talks" to play Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime movie "Elizabeth & Richard: A Love Story," according to Entertainment Weekly.

Who better to play the a glamorous Hollywood icon than a train wreck frequent jailbird Playboy model who hasn't had a notable acting role in years!

The film will focus on Taylor's tumultuous relationship with two-time husband Richard Burton. So how on Earth did they think of Lohan for the part?

  • Liz Taylor

Like Lohan, Taylor began her career at a young age, growing up in the spotlight. Some say she made plenty of missteps along her road to icon status.

Lohan also posed for Marilyn Monroe-inspired Playboy photos which allegedly racked up record sales for the mag, resurrecting her career somewhat.

Maybe a Liz T. photo spread is next? Eh, maybe not.

Elizabeth Taylor passed away in March at age 79.
