WHO Mila Kunis

THE DEAL The actress known for her breezy, game-for-anything interviews apparently turned hostile during a press junket for her latest film, "Third Person." According to an article by Stephen Whitty, film critic for The Star-Ledger in Newark, the pregnant actress bristled when Whitty asked how she was feeling, then called his choice of topics "mundane" and suggested he was fishing for answers. At one point, she shut down Whitty's line of inquiry completely. "I know what your next question is, so let's just skip it," she said when asked about her Ukrainian homeland. Nevertheless, she closed by assuring Whitty that "it was a good interview."


WHO Melissa McCarthy

THE MOVIE "The Memory of Running"

THE DEAL McCarthy and her husband-collaborator, Ben Falcone, have purchased the film rights to Ron McLarty's novel about a war veteran on a cross-country bicycle pilgrimage, according to Variety. It's one of many films the spouses are working on, including "Michelle Darnell," about a disgraced motivational speaker; the action comedy "Spy," and the sex romp "Just Do It" (both directed by Paul Feig, of "Bridesmaids"). McCarthy also is set to appear in a dramatic role, as a divorced single mother, in the upcoming film "St. Vincent."


THE MOVIE "Advanced Style"


THE DEAL Lina Plioplyte's documentary introduces several New Yorkers who have been featured on a blog called AdvancedStyle, where photographer Ari Seth Cohen posts photos of fashion-conscious senior citizens. Among the film's subjects are a vintage-clothing store employee who trades her shifts for apparel, and a lounge singer known for her particularly well-groomed eyelashes. Cohen will be on hand for a screening that launches this season's Furman Film Series.
