Maybe it's in the genes. Minnie Driver's sister, Kate, is just as outspoken--in her own behind-the-scenes kind of way--as her famous actress sibling. "Minnie's opened herself up to situations where she should never have gotten herself," Kate says straight out. Is she talking about her sister's tabloid blowout with former boyfriend Matt Damon or perhaps Driver's disclosure to the press that the "Hard Rain" crew had turned the set's water tank into a mega-urinal?

"Dallas Buyers Club" co-writer Craig Borten first met Ron Woodroof, the real-life Texas electrician-turned-AIDS-activist, in 1992, a few months before Woodroof succumbed to the disease. But Borten had seen Woodroof's never-say-die attitude before: It was the same one his cancer-stricken father had displayed a decade earlier. At a recent installment of the  Envelope Screening Series , Borten talked about how his father's fight to survive inspired the film. "Every scene in the movie speaks to a man wanting to live," Borten said, "and I think part of having that inside of you - not wanting to die, and wanting to do everything you can to stay alive - is kind of what can extend your life.

"Dallas Buyers Club" star Matthew McConaughey went to great lengths to get into character as Ron Woodroof, the real-life Texas electrician who became an unlikely AIDS activist after being diagnosed with HIV in the mid-1980s. McConaughey shed more than 40 pounds and pored over 16-plus hours of interview tapes, for example. At a recent installment of the Envelope Screening Series , the actor talked about his preparation and what his "secret weapon" was. McConaughey's first resource was the cache of tapes that screenwriter Craig Borten recorded with Woodroof months before Woodroof's death in 1992.

It's been said that a bold red lip can be aging -- a makeup blunder to avoid if you're trying to keep attention away from laugh lines and wrinkles around the mouth. But at the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Saturday, 68-year-old Helen Mirren has proven that beauty myth wrong, punctuating her black and gold Escada gown with a bright red lip. The look is anything but aging and showcases Mirren's fearless yet age-appropriate style.  The reddish-orange hue on her lips ties together her swept-back white hair and black and gold gown with a timeless and regal elegance.

Though many of the actors looked tired, they said such honors never get old. “Ed was the only one who thought we were going to win today,” said Julie Bowen, referring to costar Ed O'Neill.

Backstage at the Shrine Exposition Center was hopping Saturday night as the winners of the 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards -- in very high spirits -- filtered through to chat with reporters. A sampling: -- "Would you guys like a rear view or a frontal?” That was Jared Leto being only mildly provocative.
