President Obama says he's a fan of two popular cable TV shows: HBO's "Boardwalk Empire" and Showtime's "Homeland."
It's a good thing nobody told Steven Spielberg that Emily Watson is afraid of horses when she signed on to his new movie "War Horse."
Julianne Moore will receive an acting award at the Rome Film Festival opening this month, organizers said Thursday, while Keira Knightley, Eva Mendes and Aaron Eckhart will walk the red carpet to present their new movies.
"I'm not very good at animals generally," Miss Watson said in a recent Associated Press interview. "I like domestic animals, but big, large ones that might hurt me — I'm a bit of a wimp."
Miss Watson said she had to overcome her fears because she was so excited about being in the Spielberg film, due out Dec. 25.
