Maps to the Stars Movie Review

If the title alone of Maps to the Stars didn’t intrigue us here at At Home In Hollywood, where we cover all things celebrity home oriented, the glittering cast certainly did.

Fifty Shades of Grey Review

Fifty Shades of Grey review by Lisa Johnson Mandell The good news is that it’s better than I’d expected. The bad news is that it’s not as good as enraptured fans hoped.

Scarlett Johansson Buys a Home in a Classic Hollywood Hot Spot

Beverly Hills? Too stuffy old school. Hollywood Hills? Too rock and roll. Malibu? Too laid back hippy. When a hot young A-lister like Scarlett Johansson buys a home in Los Angeles, it makes sense that it would be in a historic, revived hipster paradise like Los Feliz. While some parts of the neighborhood have degenerated, there are pockets…

Doris Bergman's Style Lounge Kicks Off Oscar Gifting Season

Can you imagine any Hollywood event more lovely than a pre-Oscar/Valentine Gifting Suite luncheon and L.A.’s trendy Fig & Olive? Add the fact that attendees basked in 80 degree sunlight while our countrymen farther east were digging themselves out of massive piles of snow, and I feel outrageously fortunate. Okay, also a little bit unpopular with my East Coast friends…

Jupiter Ascending Review

With every asset and resource known to modern filmmakers, including a $175 million budget and the creative genius behind The Matrix franchise, this overblown, mind numbing, gas bag of a movie is the best the Wachowskis could come up with? Written, produced and directed by the mercurial siblings, it’s apparent they need a lot more supervision, as…

Melissa McCarthy's Weight Loss Secret

Yes, my friends, that’s our favorite (formerly) plus-size gal Melissa McCarthy standing right next to me at the Critics Choice Awards, and, like you, I’m amazed to see how positively petite she looks. I absolutely dwarf her, and I’m about a size 8 on most days.  That makes her look like maybe a size 4? What, you may ask,…
