Angelina Jolie takes her kids to see the new Tomb Raider

Angelina Jolie was the 1st to portray badass Lara Croft in ‘Tomb Raider’ back in 2001, & this past weekend the star checked out the movie’s reboot with her sweet kids.

Taking her kids to see the new Tomb Raider movie on March 18, Angelina Jolie, 42, looked incredibly chic in a black wrap coat and stiletto boots. While Alicia Vikander, 29, is playing video game heroine Lara Croft in the film’s reboot, Angelina was actually the first actress to take on the iconic role in 2001. We love that she took her youngsters to see Alicia reprise her character in the new movie! She was photographed going to see Tomb Raider with her 9-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, and two daughters Shiloh, 11, and Zahara, 13. Click here to see adorable pics of Angelina Jolie’s six kids.

Although her cinema trip was low-key, Angie looked uber stylish dressed in head-to-toe black. In fact, she projected a sense of off-duty elegance and mystery! The actress rocked a sophisticated wool wrap coat paired with suede knee-high boots and oversized shades. Meanwhile, her and Brad Pitt‘s, 54, kids sported more casual looks, with Zahara and Shiloh both wearing zip-up hoodies, and Knox sporting a printed bomber jacket. The family seemed to be in high spirits too, as they walked to the theater — talk about a fun weekend activity!

Although Angie had already achieved notoriety with her award-winning performances in Gia and Girl, Interrupted, before she took on the role of Lara Croft, Tomb Raider is what arguably established her as a leading Hollywood star. And despite having big shoes to fill, Alicia has already been praised for her portrayal of Lara. “I’ve been dreaming to be apart of a big action adventure film since I was a kid. I’ve wanted to push myself and in this film I really get to do that,” Alicia shared during an interview with the film’s distribution company Warner Bros. “Our story is very much an origin story… this film is about her becoming the hero that we know her to be.”

We can only imagine Alicia would be thrilled to hear Angie took her kids to see her new movie in theaters. After all, Alicia has revealed that Angie is someone she looks up to. “Angelina is a woman I would love to meet… she made an icon out of that character. She’s quite an incredible woman,” she gushed to E! News recently.

Olivia Nunn Career Milestones

Olivia Nunn Career Milestones

Birth Name: Lisa Olivia Munn
Date of Birth: July 3, 1980
Birth Place: Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA
Height: 5′ 4″ (1,63 m)

Lisa Olivia Munn (born July 3, 1980), known professionally as Olivia Munn, is an American actress and model. She was credited as Lisa Munn in her early career, but since 2006, she has used the name Olivia Munn both personally and professionally.

Munn began her professional career in television journalism before becoming an actress. In 2006, Munn starred as Mily Acuna in the series Beyond the Break. She co-hosted Attack of the Show! from 2006 to 2010 and was a correspondent on The Daily Show from 2010 to 2011. Munn has also had supporting roles in various films and television series since 2004. She appeared in the 2016 film X-Men: Apocalypse as Psylocke.

After graduating, she became an intern at the NBC affiliate in Tulsa, and later moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career. In 2004, Munn interned at Fox Sports Net and worked as a sideline reporter for college football and women’s basketball. She has gone on to say that she disliked the experience, explaining “I was trying to be something I wasn’t, and that made me really uncomfortable on live TV.”

Soon after she moved to Los Angeles, Munn was cast in a small role in the straight to video horror film Scarecrow Gone Wild. She appeared in rock band Zebrahead’s video for their song “Hello Tomorrow” as the love interest of the lead singer Justin Mauriello. Munn also appeared in National Lampoon’s Strip Poker, which was filmed at the Hedonism II nudist resort in Negril, Jamaica, with Kato Kaelin. The films aired on DirecTV and InDemand Pay Per View.

Olivia Nunn Career Milestones

In late 2005, Munn began her role as Mily Acuna, a teen surfer, over two seasons of the TV drama Beyond the Break on The N network. She enjoys surfing and continues to practice the sport. She originally auditioned for the part of Kai, but the producers wanted a “local girl”. She also appeared in the film The Road to Canyon Lake.

In 2006, Munn moved on to the G4 network, where she began co-hosting Attack of the Show! with Kevin Pereira on April 10. She replaced departing host Sarah Lane. The network, devoted to the world of video games and the video game lifestyle, was at first hesitant to hire Munn. Although she admits video games were her “weak point”, she was confident in her technical knowledge.

On the show, Munn was featured with journalist Anna David in a segment called “In Your Pants”, which deals with sex and relationship questions from viewers. While working on Attack of the Show!, Munn hosted Formula D, a now defunct program about American drift racing, and an online podcast called Around the Net (formerly known as The Daily Nut), for G4. Munn left Attack of the Show! in December 2010 and was replaced by Candace Bailey.

Munn appeared in the Rob Schneider film Big Stan (2007). She played Schneider’s character’s receptionist Maria. Munn had a significant role in the horror film Insanitarium in which she played a nurse at an insane asylum. She had roles in the films Date Night (2010) and Iron Man 2 (2010). Robert Downey, Jr. praised Munn for her improvisation skills and led the crew in a round of applause.

Munn hosted Microsoft’s Bing-a-thon, an advertisement on Hulu for the Microsoft search-engine Bing, on June 8, 2009, alongside Jason Sudeikis. Munn appeared in ABC Family’s Greek, portraying Cappie’s love interest, Lana. In May 2010, NBC announced that Munn would star in the upcoming television series Perfect Couples. The half-hour romantic comedy premiered on January 20, 2011. The show was cancelled before it completed its first season run.

On June 3, 2010, Munn debuted in her new role as a correspondent on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show. Her hiring prompted criticism from Irin Carmon of Jezebel, who questioned Munn’s credentials and accused the show’s production of sexism in hiring Munn, whom Carmon characterized as a sex symbol. Carmon saw Munn’s hiring as a perpetuation of the show production office’s history as a male-dominated atmosphere marginalizing and alienating to women.

A group of thirty-two female Daily Show production staff members condemned Carmon’s piece as inaccurate and misinformed, as did Munn herself in an interview, in which she stated that Carmon’s assertion was an insult both to her and to the rest of the Daily Show staff. She went on to appear in 16 more episodes as a correspondent, with TV Guide naming as her signature segment “Tiger Mothering”, in which she mocked the high expectations of Chinese mothers, in part by interviewing her own mother. Her last episode as a correspondent aired September 2, 2011. She returned for a brief segment in host Jon Stewart’s final show on August 6, 2015.

In 2010, Munn guest-starred in NBC’s Chuck as a CIA agent. In 2011, Munn appeared in the comedy film I Don’t Know How She Does It (2011) as Momo. In 2012, Munn had a leading role in The Babymakers, a minor role in Freeloaders, and appeared in Magic Mike, directed by Steven Soderbergh. She played Sloan Sabbith on HBO’s The Newsroom. She also appeared as Angie, Nick’s stripper girlfriend, in three episodes in season 2 of FOX’s New Girl.

Munn served as a correspondent in “True Colors”, the May 12, 2014 episode of the Showtime documentary TV series Years of Living Dangerously, in which she interviewed Washington State Governor Jay Inslee about his efforts to reduce CO2 emissions in his home state. As of June 2014 Munn has been hired as the main promoter of Proactiv acne cleanser products starring in several commercials and one informercial for the product. The commercials show Munn experiencing acne herself. Since January 2015, she has been the voice of the character Phoebe Callisto in the Disney Junior animated series Miles from Tomorrowland.

5 Things to know about The Conjuring 2’s Madison Wolfe

5 Things to know about The Conjuring 2's Madison Wolfe

Madison Wolfe has never been afraid of the boogieman under her bed. While the young actress, 13, has starred in more than a few thrillers including Devil’s Due and the upcoming The Conjuring 2 (in theaters June 10), she remains unfazed and open to all opportunities presented to her.

Here are five things to know about The Conjuring 2’s lead Madison Wolfe:

1. She believes she’s been in touch with the supernatural.

“I’m never ever scared on set,” Wolfe tells PEOPLE about her experiences with playing and surrounding herself with chilling characters. “I was never haunted by my character, but I did do a lot of research on Janet and the Enfield Poltergeist before and during filming, actually.”

She adds of a particular situation that caught her off guard during pre-production: “When I was taping the auditions and my acting coach uploaded it on her computer, the date was 1979 and that is in the time period of Conjuring, and obviously we didn’t upload it in 1979, so that was pretty creepy.”

2. Congratulations are in order for the new graduate.

“I just graduated middle school, so I’m really looking forward to beginning high school because here [in New Orleans] high school is eighth grade,” she says. “It’s kind of weird.”

While most of her days are spent in a director’s chair rather than a plastic desk chair, she makes sure to never let herself fall behind in school. “I really keep up with my schoolwork and my parents help me so much with that,” says Wolfe. “It’s hard sometimes because I’ll be on set and I’ll be doing a really intense scene and I’ll have to go work on algebra while staying in character.”

3. There’s more than one Wolfe in town.

Wolfe and her younger sister, Meghan, 9, have played sisters twice onscreen – once on True Detective and another time in Trumbo – which happened to be “the coolest thing ever.”

“I think that we both learn from each other and we’re constantly taping and auditioning together, and it’s great because if I get an audition and I need someone to read with me or even have a question, she’s younger than me, but she’s amazing and an amazing actress,” says Wolfe.

4. She’s a budding writer and director.

“When I was younger, I used to write scripts and make my grandmother and my aunt play different characters, and eventually my aunt signed me up for Launch, which is an acting school here in New Orleans. I started taking classes and really fell in love with the craft,” says Wolfe. “It actually just began as an extracurricular activity, and I didn’t really expect anything out of it because I loved it, so it just turned into something amazing.”

5. And she has even more extracurricular activities outside of acting.

As if Wolfe doesn’t have enough on her plate, she also enjoys cheerleading, swimming, photography and horseback riding, which she’s “pretty good” at.

“I love really anything with animals,” says Wolfe, who has yet to get a horse of her own, but does have a dog named Molly.

“Really, I just like to hang with my friends because I’m away so often,” she adds of how she spends her, so to speak, “free” time. “The time that I spend with them is really valuable, and my family, also.”

Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris Split: What Went Wrong

Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris Split: What Went Wrong

It seemed like a match made in musical heaven. When Taylor Swift and Scottish DJ and super-producer Calvin Harris began dating 15 months ago, they quickly became one of the most enviable celebrity couples ever to grace social media.

Though rumors of a romance first began when they were spotted getting close at Kenny Chesney’s Nashville concert in March last year, social proof of their love started with Harris, 32, first posting pictures of Swift’s beloved cats last April.

The duo then made their official outing as a couple at the Billboard Music Awards one month later. They were also spotted that same month having a romantic dinner date at Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica wearing matching all-black ensembles. Swift, 26, “seemed incredibly happy but also very at ease with Calvin,” an onlooker said at the time.

Over the Fourth of July weekend, the duo cemented their love on Instagram when the “Shake It Off” singer shared an adorable shot of her boyfriend carrying her on his back, captioning it “Friendly relations between Scotland and America.”

Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris Split: What Went Wrong

“There’s a whole bunch of times when we’ve been hanging out and nobody’s caught it,” Harris told KISS FM UK that month. “You know, it’s not like every single time we go out we get a photograph taken of us. That’s not the case. But for me, though, it could be a lot worse and I’d still be like insanely happy with her so I’m good with it.”

The good times seemingly continued for the couple throughout the rest of the year, with Harris growing close to Swift’s tight-knit family. Over the holidays, the couple spent time with Swift’s parents and her younger brother Austin in Vail, Colorado, where they dined out at Zach’s Cabin and built snowmen in the winter wonderland.

Celebrating their one-year anniversary in March, Swift and Harris set social media ablaze with romantic snaps from paradise. Both the entertainers shared sexy shots from their ultra-private getaway in the Caribbean, sparking vacation FOMO across the nation. “That time we finally took a vacation,” the 1989 hitmaker wrote on one post.

“When she was on tour last year, he really missed her and it wasn’t easy,” a source told PEOPLE after their anniversary. “Of course they love each other, but they are not the type of people to rush down the altar.”

Swift – who rarely opens up about her romantic relationships in interviews – also addressed her relationship with Harris for the first time in the spring.

At the iHeartRadio Music Awards in April, she publicly gave him a shout out during her acceptance speech, saying, “For the first time I had the most amazing person to come home to when the crowds were all gone and the spotlight went out, so I’d like to thank my boyfriend Adam for that,” she said, referring to Harris by his real name, Adam Richard Wiles.

She also touched upon their “magical romance” in the April issue of Vogue. “I’m just taking things as they come,” she told the magazine. “I’m in a magical relationship right now. And of course I want it to be ours, and low-key … this is the one thing that’s been mine about my personal life.”

So what caused a seemingly picturesque romance to go south? Indeed, both stars have had equally demanding work schedules keeping them apart. In January 2015, Harris struck a three-year residency gig to DJ at Las Vegas clubs at the MGM Grand and Caeser’s Palace. He’s also a highly sought after producer, whose current hit with Rihanna, “This is What You Came For” recently hit No. 9 on the Billboard charts.

Meanwhile, Swift was on tour for seven months last year and has been busy with work commitments this spring, including co-chairing the Met Ball last month. The star attended the event with her pals, and was again solo when she picked up an award at the 2016 BMI Pop Awards later in the month.

Jennifer Lawrence Through The Years

Jennifer Lawrence Through The Years

Academy Award-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence is best known for playing Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games (2012), Tiffany Maxwell in Silver Linings Playbook (2012), and Rosalyn Rosenfeld in American Hustle (2013).

Jennifer Shrader Lawrence was born on August 15, 1990 in Louisville, Kentucky, to Karen (Koch), who manages a children’s camp, and Gary Lawrence, who works in construction. She has two older brothers, Ben and Blaine, and has English, German, Irish, and Scottish ancestry.

Before Jennifer became an actress, she was involved in cheer-leading, field hockey, softball, and modeling, none of which she held a passion for. Her career began when she traveled to Manhattan at the age of 14. After conducting her first cold read, agents told her mother that “it was the best cold read by a 14- year-old they had ever heard”, and tried to convince her mother that she needed to spend the summer in Manhattan.

Jennifer Lawrence Through The Years

After leaving the agency, Jen was spotted by an agent in the midst of shooting an H&M ad and asked to take her picture. The next day, that agent followed up with her and invited her to the studio for a cold read audition. Again, the agents were highly impressed and strongly urged her mother to allow her to spend the summer in New York City. As fate would have it, she did, and subsequently appeared in commercials such as MTV’s “My Super Sweet 16” and played a role in the movie, The Devil You Know (2013).

Shortly thereafter, her career forced her and her family to move to Los Angeles, where she was cast in the TBS sitcom The Bill Engvall Show (2007), and in smaller movies like The Poker House (2008) and The Burning Plain (2008).

Her big break came when she played Ree in Gerçegin Parçalari (2010), which landed her Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations. Shortly thereafter, she secured the role of Mystique in franchise reboot X-Men: The First Class (2011), which went on to be a hit in Summer 2011. Around this time, Lawrence scored the role of a lifetime when she was cast as Katniss Everdeen in the big-screen adaptation of literary sensation The Hunger Games (2012). That went on to become one of the highest-grossing movies ever with over $407 million at the domestic box office, and instantly propelled Lawrence to the A-list among young actors / actresses.

Jennifer Lawrence Through The Years

Three Hunger Games sequels are scheduled for release in November 2013, 2014, and 2015, with Lawrence reprising her role at least for the first one (Açlik Oyunlari: Atesi Yakalamak (2013)). In 2012 the romantic comedy Silver Linings Playbook earned her the Academy Award, Golden Globe Award, Screen Actors Guild Award, Satellite Award and the Independent Spirit Award for Best Actress, amongst other accolades, making her the youngest person ever to be nominated for two Academy Awards for Best Actress and the second-youngest Best Actress winner

Lawrence can also be seen in The Beaver (2011), Like Crazy (2011), House at the End of the Street (2012), and American Hustle (2013). She played the title role, Joy Mangano, in the 2015 David O. Russell film Joy (2015).

Johnny Depp’s Romantic History: Amber Heard, Winona Ryder, Kate Moss, Vanessa Paradis, and More

Johnny Depp’s Romantic History: Amber Heard, Winona Ryder, Kate Moss, Vanessa Paradis, and More

Team Wino Forever! Before his rocky marriage to Amber Heard made headlines, Johnny Depp went through a slew of high-profie relationships and broken engagements to such famous women as Winona Ryder and Jennifer Grey. During his 30-plus years in the spotlight, he romanced several costars and much-younger ladies.

The Pirates of the Caribbean actor, 52, is currently going through a messy split with the Danish Girl actress, 30, who filed for divorce on Monday, May 23, after 15 months of marriage. Depp reportedly asked the judge to deny her claim for spousal support. And a few days later, Heard allegedly filed a domestic violence restraining order against Depp and brought a photo of her bruised face to court as evidence, according to TMZ. A source tells Us Weekly the restraining order was granted immediately because the amount of evidence was overwhelming.

Here’s a look back at the A-lister actor’s most famous — and infamous relationships.

Lori Anne Allison

Before Heard was even born, Depp tied the knot for the first time with makeup artist Lori Anne Allison in 1983. The future superstar was just 20 years old at the time, and Allison was the sister of one of his bandmates. The couple divorced two years later in 1985, but the marriage did give Depp his first big break in Hollywood. Allison’s friendship with Nicolas Cage helped him land his first major acting gig in 1984’s horror classic, A Nightmare on Elm Street.

Sherilyn Fenn

Depp met future Twin Peaks actress Sherilyn Fenn on the set of the 1985 student film Dummies. She even made an appearance on a 1987 episode of Depp’s TV show, 21 Jump Street. They were reportedly engaged, but went their separate ways after three and a half years.

Jennifer Grey

Another broken engagement. The Golden Globe nominee popped the question to the Dirty Dancing star in the late ‘80s, but the couple called off the wedding shortly after.

Winona Ryder

The actor-producer met Winona Ryder for the first time at the premiere for 1989’s Great Balls of Fire! when the actress was only 17. In 1990, they costarred in Edward Scissorhands, and Depp later proposed to Ryder. He was so in love that he opted for a “Winona Forever” tattooed on his arm. When they called it quits in 1993, he famously altered it to say “Wino Forever,” as it still reads today. Ryder recalled the end of their relationship in an interview with Elle UK in 2009 and called it “my first real breakup, the first heartbreak.”

Kate Moss

Fashionable couple! Depp first hooked up with the then 20-year-old supermodel in 1994. During their romance, the Black Mass star was arrested for allegedly trashing a hotel room at the Mark Hotel in NYC. When police entered, they reportedly found the couple sitting amid debris.

“There’s nobody that’s ever really been able to take care of me. Johnny did for a bit,” Moss told Vanity Fair in 2012 of their relationship and subsequent breakup in 1998. “Like if I said, ‘What do I do?,’ he’d tell me. And that’s what I missed when I left. I really lost the gauge of somebody I could trust. Nightmare. Years and years of crying. Oh, the tears!”

Ellen Barkin

Always an age difference. Depp briefly dated Ellen Barkin, who is 9 years older than the actor, in 1994, and the short-lived couple made several red carpet appearances together.

Vanessa Paradis

His longest love! Depp and French model, actress and singer Vanessa Paradis were together for 14 years. Although the pair never married, they share daughter Lily-Rose, 17, and son Jack, 14. In 2010, Depp explained to Extra why they never walked down the aisle. “I never found myself needing that piece of paper,” he said. “Marriage is really from soul to soul, heart to heart. You don’t need somebody to say, okay you’re married. … If Vanessa wanted to get hitched, why not. But the thing is, I’d be so scared of ruining her last name. She’s got such a good last name.”

He opened up to Rolling Stone about the split in 2013. “It wasn’t easy on [Paradis]. It wasn’t easy on me. It wasn’t easy on the kids,” he said. “It doesn’t stop the fact that you care for that person, and they’re the mother of your kids, and you’ll always know each other, and you’re always gonna be in each other’s lives because of those kids. You might as well make the best of it.”
