Disney’s Elsa has FROZEN the competition.

Barbie is typically the No. 1 gift on girls’ wish list every Christmas, but Elsa has come along and changed that.

Since its release, Frozen has earned more than $1 billion at the box office worldwide.

The NRF’s Holiday Top Toys Survey found that one in five parents (20 percent) plan to buy Frozen merchandise for their girls. That beats out the 16.8 percent that are looking to make a Barbie purchase.

Barbie sales has dropped 21 percent in the third quarter, according toMattel Inc.

Dolls dominated the top five spots for girls in the NRF poll. Monster High dolls took the fourth spot, with American Girl grabbed the fifth position.

Angelina Jolie covers the new issue of Entertainment Weekly. Inside, the actress dishes on her new movie, Unbroken.

The actress told Entertainment Weekly that putting the story of late WWII POW survivor Louis Zamperini on film was quite the daunting task.

 She reveals, “I didn’t know what I was up against when I was first getting into it. I had never done anything like it. I was up for the challenge, but I had so much to learn.”

“If you saw that first shot and my reaction to it, you’d be absolutely sure that this was going to be one of the great disasters of filmmaking history. The only thing you could do was laugh at how insane this was all going to be. And then you just had to take a deep breath and figure out what to do next.”

Unbroken hits theaters on December 25, 2014.

Lisa Kudrow Talks Life, “Friends,” & Rejection with GLAMOUR

Lisa Kudrow is readying the reboot of her HBO series The Comeback, which was canceled after only one season in 2005.

Now that the show is heading back to television, Kurdrow snuck in a little promo and some helpful life advice in the latest issue of Glamour magazine.

DO KEEP YOUR LIFE PLANS OPEN
“I never thought I’d be an actress. It wasn’t even on my mind when I was 22, sitting at graduation. Then something hit me: You’ve always kind of wanted to be an actress—now is the time to try. If it doesn’t work out, you can go back to school and catch up on evolutionary science. My brother’s best friend, [comic] Jon Lovitz, said to go to The Groundlings School for improv. Friends wasn’t until, like, eight years later. You never know what the next opportunity will be, so you have to be open, especially starting out.”

DON’T LET A LITTLE REJECTION SCARE YOU OFF
“With any rejection, you can’t help but consider how correct people were for rejecting you. What helps? Having someone you respect who thinks you’re good, so the story is: Well, they think I’m good, so I’ll keep going. [My improv classmate] Conan O’Brien completely helped me through.”

DO PLEDGE YOUR COMMITMENT, FOREMOST
“When [Michel and I] decided to get married, we understood: We’re not promising to love each other forever, because you can’t do that, but we are promising to work on whatever problems come up. We’re committed to our marriage working. It turns out, after you have a history, there’s such a bond, and love takes another shape. But oh, I don’t want to jinx it—I’m superstitious!”

DON’T LOSE YOUR INDEPENDENCE
“[Michel and I] respect each other’s independence, and I don’t mean that as a euphemism. I don’t mean relationship wise outside the marriage. Clear? But I don’t like to travel. So if he wants to go on a golf trip, he goes. I think people get in trouble [when they assume they’re] supposed to be one unit, in sync about everything. [Marriage] is like being on a team. Each teammate is different, but you have the same goal.”

DO MAKE YOUR FRIENDS A PRIORITY
“[Courteney, Jennifer,] and I—we’ve known each other for over 20 years. We had lunch together every day for 10 years, and it just mostly feels like, Well, that wasn’t enough time at all; I want more, please. When we get together for a dinner now, it feels like, Ahhh. There is a bond that is there forever.”

DON’T YOU DARE JUDGE
“As you get older, there are fewer Dos & Don’ts. You’re less judgmental of yourself and others. My advice: Be a good listener; human beings are very complicated.”

Julianne Moore for GLOW Magazine

 

julmoo

Julianne Moore covers the Winter 2015 issue of Glow magazine.

On Meryl Streep being her career role model- “I can remember when Meryl Streep was on the cover of Time magazine when I was in high school, and I said to my dad, ‘I think I want to do this.’ She is just such a great actress. And she’s someone who has managed to have a family, a marriage and a career.”

 On her nomadic upbringing- “It wasn’t until later in life that I learned how to be in a community and have friends and foster relationships and kind of count on that. When you don’t grow up with that, it’s not necessarily something you know how to do. And I’m really proud now that I feel like I do have a community and a life that I love, and I do feel entrenched in something. In terms of my family and friends, I have a life that I can count on in that way.”

On her own parenting strategy- “One of the most important things I tell my children is that content matters. Who you are, what you think, who you are going to become, how you behave, all of those things really add up to being a valuable person. The outside is great, obviously, but it all really does come from within.”

Robert DeNiro for ASPEN PEAK Magazine

Robert De Niro  covers the Holiday 2014 issue of Aspen Peak magazine.

 

On constantly hearing he’s one of the greatest actors of all time: “People treat me with a bit too much reverence. Look at Dustin Hoffman. I always envy the way he can speak and be smart and funny and so on. I just can’t do that.”

On the death of Robin Williams- “When you get old you look back at those things, the times, the good experiences you had and you realize that they’re forever gone. I’m very saddened by what happened to Robin. Very sad. His death brought back all the good old times that are no more.”

On wanting Hilary Clinton to run for president -“If Hillary [Clinton] runs in 2016, she has my vote. I’ll get behind her. I know she has paid her dues. I have trust in her. She has the experience and ability to make an excellent leader.”
