His walk is slow, his speech is measured, but at 86, Sidney Poitier is still a commanding presence. The Academy Award-winning actor and a founding board member of the American Film Institute in 1967 was on hand for AFI Night at the Movies at the ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood on Wednesday to introduce "In the Heat of the Night," the 1967 best picture winner in which he starred with Rod Steiger. Introducing films in other theaters for the AFI fund-raiser were Harrison Ford ("Blade Runner")

NEW YORK -- Politics and entertainment often make for a volatile mix, and Sunday's Emmys were no exception. After Fox broke away from dramatic actress winner Sally Field as she made an antiwar statement punctuated with "goddamn," the blogsphere hummed with outrage. For many in the liberal netroots, the incident confirmed their suspicions about Fox, owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp.
What's this? "Gidget" is playing the mother of a grown daughter in "Steel Magnolias"? How can that be? "Why not?" Sally Field said. "I'm not too young to play the mother of an adult. I have a son who is only one year younger than Julia Roberts is in real life. Julia is 21. My son is 20. I had him when I was 23, which is why I never hesitate to reveal my age. I'm 43. That's how old I am. This is how I look. This is what happens when you have a child in your 20s."
The perky California teen Gidget. The emotionally battered Sybil. The heroic Norma Rae. The frail but indomitable Edna of "Places in the Heart." Forrest Gump's devoted, loving Mama. These diverse, memorable women were all brought to life by Oscar- and Emmy Award-winning actress Sally Field. Now the 48-year-old actress has added another indelible portrait to her gallery of characters: Bess Steed Garner, the feisty heroine of "A Woman of Independent Means."
Back in the mid-'80s, the Santa Barbara International Film Festival kicked off, as new festivals are wont to do, with heady, high ambitions. The theory was that a festival in a tourist-destination burg close to Hollywood stood a good chance of entering the top echelon of international film showcases. Reality settled in, and so did the event's self-identity.

It's no surprise that Sally Field, who grew up in a showbiz family and has worked on screen since her teens, feels at home among her fellow actors. On the red carpet of the SAG Awards on Sunday night, the "Lincoln" star, who was nominated for supporting actress for playing first lady Mary Todd Lincoln, likened acting to being part of a tribe. "Every time an actor pays you a compliment, it's particularly meaningful," Field told Times reporter Amy Kaufman on the red carpet at the Shrine Auditorium.

Sally Field, now up for her third Academy Award for acting, has been much teased, in a "Mean Girls" sort of way, for that infamous emotional gush after her 1985 "Places in the Heart" win: "You like me, you really like me. " But what the actress actually said that night was far more telling about the cultural, social and political dynamics of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the most exclusive club in Hollywood: "I haven't had an...

PALM SPRINGS -- Veteran Helen Mirren showed how to express gratitude like a pro, saying “thank you” in at least half a dozen languages. Fresh-faced  Tom Holland , the 16-year-old actor from "The Impossible," charmed with his youth. But it was Sally Field who brought down the house Saturday night at the Palm Springs International Film Festival gala, an event that in many ways is the first dress rehearsal of Hollywood's awards season....

When Steven Spielberg asked Sally Field to play Mary Todd Lincoln in 2005, deep down, the two-time Oscar-winning actress knew the road to playing the contentious first lady wasn't going to be easy. Writers on the film project came and went, as eventually did Liam Neeson, the actor originally cast to play Abraham Lincoln. When Daniel Day-Lewis agreed to come on board, Spielberg wasn't sure Field still fit, owing largely to their age difference. Lincoln was nearly 10 years older than his wife, but Field had more than a decade on Day-Lewis.

What makes a person funny? What drives someone to stand in front of a dark and smoke-filled hall, trying to pry laughter out of a sea of strange faces--which together have the power to send a comic home drunk on adrenaline, or leave an ego in shards on a lonely stage? Tom Hanks still doesn't know the answer to the second question. But he does know something about the first.

Most of the items on display in Sally Field's den are the things you'd expect to see--the two best actress Oscars (for "Norma Rae," 1979, and "Places in the Heart," 1984), the Emmy ("Sybil," 1976), the Golden Globe ("Places in the Heart"), the best actress citation from the Cannes Film Festival ("Norma Rae").

"I put up with those people who look through me as if I were invisible because all they can see is the great and glorious genius, Alfred Hitchcock. " - Alma Reville Hitchcock, as portrayed by Helen Mirren in "Hitchcock" It's not easy being a great man's wife.
