Penelope Cruz Turns 42
A-lister Penelope Cruz has emerged over the years as one of the most sought-after actresses in Hollywood. The Spanish starlet's versatility has allowed to be featured in multiple film genres and she has received several accolades, including a nice and shiny Academy Award for her work in 2008's Vicky Cristina Barcelona. It should come as no surprise that her stunning features and perma-pout have also graced several modeling campaigns, seducing audiences with that exotic Latin flair. Today, we honor Penelope on her 42nd birthday, and look ahead to the future endeavors of this gorgeous gift to Earth.

A Lesson on Apocalypse
Fox has released the first official clip from the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse, and in it, old friend Moira McTaggart (Rose Byrne) gives us a history lesson on El Sabah Nur, better known as the all-powerful mutant, Apocalypse. After the events of Days of Future Past exposed mutants to the world, cults have been rising up with a specific one anticipating the arrival of El Sabah Nur to recreate Earth. Regular players Professor X and Havok don't seem to worried at the time being, but little do they know..

It's A Walk-Off
Smokeshow Gisele Bundchen's 20-year runway career may be over, but that doesn't mean the Brazilian fashion model doesn't still have a little somethin' up her sleeve. Equipped with a pair of painful looking blueberry-colored pumps, Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon attempts to do his own runway strut through the NBC studio in hopes of one day taking over for the stunning 35 year-old. Check out the new clip above, and see why Jimmy should probably just stick to his hosting job.
