In the real world, there are two rules to follow for a healthy work environment:

  1. Don't steal someone else's food from the fridge.
  2. Don't date your coworkers.

Both make for awkward water cooler run-ins and should probably be avoided.

Unless, of course, you're a famous movie star who dates other famous movie stars and you decide to date your coworkers. Then things just get interesting and awkward.

Especially when the characters you're portraying are together on screen.

Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum
Channing Tatum met now-wife Jenna Dewan on the set of Step Up. She was totally impressed by his moves.

Why? LOVE SCENES. Look no further than Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman in Eyes Wide Shut to see what we mean. Pretty sure Keith Urban's neeeeeever watching THAT movie.

Yesterday, photos from the set of Star Wars Episode VII leaked online, and director JJ Abrams is understandably not pleased...but at least he's maintained his sense of humor.

The director responded to the leak via his production company's Twitter page yesterday with a hand-written note that includes an in-joke for Star Wars obsessives:

  • JJ Abrams Photo
  • JJ Abrams Note

"I wish people would stop leaking photos from Episode VII," reads the note. "And making ridiculous claims that the Millenium Falcon is in the movie."

The message sits atop a game board that fans might recognize from the famous R2D2 vs. Chewbacca intergalactic chess match in episode IV. That scene gave us the oft-quoted line, "Let the wookie win!"

Star Wars Episode VII is still more than a year away, but we're already receiving updates about the "stand-alone" films that will follow, but will not serve as official sequels to the forthcoming movie.

Still with us? To clarify: JJ Abrams will direct Star Wars episodes VII, VIII, and IX, but Disney and Lucasfilms also plan to release a series of films that take place in a galaxy far, far away but are not related to the new trilogy.

Josh Trank

At least one of those films will be directed by a young up-and-comer named Josh Trank, previously best known for the 2012 film Chronicle.

Though he just turned 30, Trank is already highly in demand in Hollywood and he's also slated to adapt the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot.

Shailene Woodley's Jennifer Lawrence comments may be getting the most headlines these days, but it's a different kind of drama that could soon make Shailene a box office legend.

Movie ticket sales site Fandango says that Woodley's upcoming film The Fault In Our Stars has posted bigger pre-release sales numbers than any romantic drama in the site's 14-year history.

The highly-anticipated movie has officially beat the 2011 release "The Vow" which went on to gross a whopping $41 million dollars in its opening weekend.

Fault's pre-sale numbers are just about unprecedented for a summer release that's not an action movie or a sequel.

After months of rumors, we finally have confirmation that Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o has been cast in Star Wars: Episode VII.

Lucasfilm made the announcement today along with news that Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie will also appear in the film.

While most of the cast of Star Wars Episode VII was revealed in April, rumors that Nyong'o and Zac Efron had been secretly offered roles continued to circulate.

While there is still no studio confirmation or denial of Efron's part in the movie, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy spoke with the press today about the two newest additions to the cast of 2015's most highly-anticipated film.

"I could not be more excited about Lupita and Gwendoline joining the cast of Episode VII," said Kennedy. "It's thrilling to see this extraordinarily talented ensemble take shape."

Angelina Jolie has starred in a number of popular movies over the years, but none enjoyed a more successful first weekend than her newly released retelling of the Sleeping Beauty tale.

While reviews for Maleficent were mixed at best, the movie pulled in $70 million domestically and over $100 mill overseas to give Angelina her biggest opening to date. 

Analysts credit the film's female-based marketing campaign, and early reports indicate that Maleficent's audience was over 60% women.

The movie marked the big screen debut of Angelina's daughter Vivienne, who played a younger version of Elle Fanning's Aurora. Now that she's proven to be box office gold, will little Viv start popping up in all of Angie's films?

F-ck.

The most versatile and satisfying expletive in any lexicon, and one with the ability to be used as nearly any part of speech, f--k is a crucial component of modern cinema.

We'll spare you the grammar lesson, THGers, but trust us, it's true.

It's also one way for a movie to catapult itself straight into an R-rating. More than two uses and those under 17 aren't allowed! At least not without a parent or guardian.

Or a really good fake ID. (JUST KIDDING DON'T DO THAT!)

In celebration of the aforementioned word, we compiled a f--king awesome tribute to films that thumbed their noses at the MPAA and packed it in as much as humanly possible.

Scroll through 19 hit movies that drop the most f-bombs:

The Wolf of Wall Street
2013's The Wolf of Wall Street told the story of Jordan Belfort by using the word "f*ck" an impressive 569 times in 180 minutes.

At this week's Maleficent premiere in Hollywood, Brad Pitt got attacked by an idiotic prankster.

Sadly, according to a number of Maleficent reviews, this may have been the most entertaining thing to happen related to the film.

How could a film that features Angelina Jolie as the real-life version of this famous Disney villain go wrong? We'll let a number of the country's most prominent movie critics explain...

While this is Jolie's show, obviously - and she's terrifically arch - the surprising dearth of other compelling characters doesn't offer much distraction when things get off track. - Tom Russo

Blockbuster effects can't mask bland storytelling. - Tom Clift

The first Sin City film gave us Jessica Alba as the world's first stripper to wear pants on stage.

But while Alba only takes it off for Entertainment Weekly, Eva Green, her co-star in the Sin City sequel is already being told by the MPAA to put some darn clothes on and the movie hasn't even been released yet!

Eva Green: Sin City Poster

The MPAA is reportedly preventing Dimension Films from shipping the above poster of Green to movie theaters for display in their lobbies.

The reason? Well, in a word, boobs. In many words: "Nudity - curve of under breast, and dark nipple/areola circle visible through sheer gown."

Yes, that's the MPAA's official explanation. They're the ones holding meetings about dark nipple circles and we're made to seem like pervs for wanting to see that poster in theaters?! What a world!

Rumors about Star Wars: Episode VII will likely continue to circulate up until the film's December 2015 release date.

But while the cast of Episode VII has been announced, little else has been officially confirmed, leaving fans to scour the Internet for hints of what the movie might have in store.

Well, if you're one of those fans, prepare yourself for what may be the closest thing you'll see to actual Episode VII footage between now and when the first trailers are released:

If you've been keeping up with the Star Wars rumor mill, you know Daisy Ridley was probably cast as Han Solo and Princess Leia's daughter in Episode VII. (We knew for certain she'll appear in the film, but her role has yet to be verified.)

The video above is supposedly footage of Ridley receiving some serious lightsaber training on set.
