Luke Evans Hides a Secret in 'Professor Marston & the Wonder Women' Trailer - Watch Now!

Luke Evans stars as William Moulton Marston, the creator of Wonder Woman, in the trailer for Professor Marston & the Wonder Women.

Here’s a synopsis of the movie: In a superhero origin tale unlike any other, the film is the incredible true story of what inspired Harvard psychologist Dr. William Moulton Marston to create the iconic Wonder Woman character in the 1940′s. While Marston’s feminist superhero was criticized by censors for her ‘sexual perversity’, he was keeping a secret that could have destroyed him. Marston’s muses for the Wonder Woman character were his wife Elizabeth Marston and their lover Olive Byrne, two empowered women who defied convention: working with Marston on human behavior research — while building a hidden life with him that rivaled the greatest of superhero disguises.

The film stars Luke, Rebecca Hall, Bella Heathcote, and Connie Britton, and will hit theaters on October 27.

Salma Hayek Says Political Climate In This Country Is Like Dark Comedy

Salma Hayek has some thoughts about our current political climate…

“The country has never been so politically divided,” the 50-year-old actress expressed at The Cinema Society’s premiere of her latest film Beatriz at Dinner (via PageSix). “It’s become a little bit of a comedy. Sometimes a comedy of errors, most of the time a dark comedy, the political climate in this country.”

“It’s my hope that we have a deeper understanding and willingness to have a conversation between different ideologies, and a stronger understanding of the things that bind us together,” Salma concluded.

Pictured: Salma joining co-stars John Lithgow, Connie Britton and director Miguel Arteta at their BUILD Series panel for Beatriz at Dinner on Wednesday (June 7) before making their way to TimesTalks: The Allegory Of Beatriz At Dinner at New School’s Tischman Auditorium.

That same evening, Salma made an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and dished about rocking a pink wig at the Kering Women in Motion Awards Dinner during the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.

“It freaked everyone out, especially my husband,” Salma told Stephen. “My daughter was cool, she was like ‘can I wear it after you?’ My husband was like ‘do you really? are you sure you want to do this?’ I think I embarrassed him a little bit, but then it worked out and he couldn’t believe that I actually pulled it off. I do that all the time, I surprised him.”

While discussing her role as Faye Resnick on American Crime Story, Connie said that Larry King started hitting on her during their scene together!

“I was so nervous about that Larry King interview because Larry King knew Faye — that actually happened.” Connie said. “I sat down with him and we hadn’t rehearsed or anything and we did one take and he leaned over to me and said, ‘You are Faye! Oh my God, it’s like she’s sitting in front of me.’”

“I was so happy, so relieved! And we did one more take and he said, ‘Someone get us a room,’” Connie continued. “And that was it — we only did two takes. So then I’m walking off with him holding my hand and I think he maybe thought it was going to happen!”

Kerry Washington Wasn't ABC's Original Choice to Play Olivia Pope on 'Scandal'

The cast and creative team of ABC’s Scandal sat down for an interview with THR amid their 100th episode celebration – and a big reveal was made.

Apparently, ABC wanted Connie Britton for the role, and Shonda Rhimes and others on the team fought for a black actress to star. The role obviously went to Kerry Washington, who has played the role since day one!

“Nothing felt more important than the sense of outsiderness. I didn’t know that there hadn’t been a drama series with a leading black woman for 37 years. When the show got picked up [to pilot], I got a phone call from somebody who said, ‘This would be the perfect show for Connie Britton.’ I said, ‘It would be, except Olivia Pope is black,’” Shonda told THR.

“The network was reading us their top choices, and it was Connie and all white women. I panicked. Somebody finally piped up, ‘We’re going to have to redo this list,’” Linda Lowy, the casting director, added. “We tested Kerry, Jill Scott and Anika Noni Rose. It was Kerry from the moment I took her to meet Shonda.”

Meanwhile, Kerry added, “This would have been a great role for Connie Britton!”

Rashida Jones, Connie Britton, & Tracee Ellis Ross Discuss Combating Today's Beauty Standards

Rashida Jones, Connie Britton, and Tracee Ellis Ross take three separate covers for Good Housekeeping‘s May 2017 issues.

Here’s what the three stars had to share with the mag:

Rashida, on Hollywood’s tough standards for beauty: “I don’t like the idea that there is so much pressure on women to look a certain way in Hollywood. There are times when I feel myself buckling under it.”

Tracee, on the importance of inner beauty and self-love: “There are times I put on tons of makeup; there are times I don’t. The larger conversation is about the idea that we have to manipulate ourselves to be lovable and worthy. My life has worth because of who I am as a human being, not because I am an object of desire. I’d love to be in a delicious, romantic relationship, but it is not the point of how I choose to look or feel beautiful.”

Connie, on how the stigma of not being sexy over 40 is fake news: “People tell me the 50s are the best time – I’m ready! That whole stigma of being over 40 and not being sexy anymore is fake news. We’re more vibrant because we have experience, we know our bodies. I have a friend who says that you always want to make sure it’s your life that you’re living – it’s a constant mantra.”
