Jessica Biel: Colin Farrell Has a ‘Kind of Magnetism’

Jessica Biel and Colin FarrellJessica Biel says Colin Farrell has a "kind of magnetism" which attracts people.

The 30-year-old actress loved working with the reformed hellraiser on new sci-fi movie Total Recall, Jessica - who is engaged to Justin Timberlake - believes people are drawn to Colin simply because he is excited about life, rather than because of his partying and womanizing reputation.

"The thing about Colin is he is just so respectful and such a good guy. When you meet him the sparkle is more about having a curiosity of life, excited about the world and excited about what they're doing or traveling, it's that kind of sparkle. It's that kind of magnetism that I feel he puts out there in the world, he's just cool to be around."

Total Recall is in theaters now.

Elizabeth Taylor, Richard BurtonThe tumultuous, romantic relationship between film icons Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton (who were wed twice) will be the subject of a new film based on the book Furious Love: Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton and the Marriage of the Century.

Some of the material for the book was offered by herself, who provided love letters written to her by Burton and an unpublished first draft of Taylor’s 1965 autobiography.

The part of Taylor is one of the best movie roles to come along in a long, long time - and all of Hollywood is chomping at the bit to get involved. Sources say that Angelina Jolie and are both interested in the role. Clive Owen, Colin Farrell and Russell Crowe are all eager to play the part of Richard Burton.

Box Office Breakdown: Wonderful Start for Alice in Wonderland

Alice in Wonderland

Something tells me we’ll be seeing more collaborations between Johnny Depp and Tim Burton soon.

, the latest project from the famous movie-making team, unfolded to a whopping $116 million over the Oscar weekend. Disney’s 3-D adaptation had the best open ever for a non-sequel and the largest debut for any winter release outside of the holiday season. (And we thought Passion of the Christ‘s $83.8 million looked good six years ago.)

Tim Burton’s entry gave the director his best first weekend to date (compared to the $68.5 million Planet of the Apes grossed in 2001). The movie did, though, come in second to Johnny Depp’s personal high. (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men’s Chest raked in $135.6 million in 2006.)

Alice also topped all 3-D openers…including Avatar. (Granted, James Cameron did have a blizzard to contend with at the time.)

Oscar statues

When you throw in an extra host, add five more Best Picture nominees, take away the Best Song performances and nominate two formerly married directors—what do you get? A night that will surely be talked about.

Although many believe the will end with very few surprises, the possibility of an upset is still too great to ignore. Will the box office champ (Avatar) win Best Film as well? Or will The Hurt Locker - or even Inglourious Basterds - take the prize? Is Jeff Bridges a shoo-in for Best Actor…or could BAFTA winner Colin Firth sneak past him? Will Sandra Bullock have to deliver another acceptance speech, or will Meryl Streep take home her first Oscar since 1983?

To find out if the ceremony ends in a world of Hurt or Up in the Air, stay tuned here for the live results!
