Happy birthday, Jennifer Aniston! The Friends actress — yes, she'll always be Rachel Green to us — turns 44 today. Jennifer's had a lucky year in love, getting engaged in August to Justin Theroux. She's always been open about being single, her divorce, and getting older in interviews, but her TV and movie characters have also had some thoughtful, irreverent, and funny quips on romance and breakups (including some great zingers!). In honor of Jennifer's birthday, let's check out some of her best onscreen lines on relationships now.
Happy birthday, Elizabeth Banks! On Feb. 10, the actress, producer, and director turns 39. Not only does Elizabeth Banks juggle a variety of jobs in Hollywood, she also plays a variety of characters — both funny and serious, TV and film. In last year's People Like Us, she stepped into the shoes of a single mom and bartender who builds a relationship with a man she doesn't know is actually her brother. She also tackled complicated sibling relationships in 2011's Our Idiot Brother, in which she played one of three sisters having to deal with their troublesome brother and his effect on their love lives. Whether she's playing a sloppy kisser at a Summer camp in the '80s or a strong-willed, workaholic CNBC news anchor, Elizabeth's notable TV and film characters always know what they want and how to go after it. So from the lips of Elizabeth Banks's characters, here's how to be a confident woman in your familial and romantic relationships.

While many people are planning viewing parties for the Super Bowl, we have our own way of prepping for game day: revisiting some of the most popular football coaches in movies and TV. From small-screen favorites like Friday Night Lights' Coach Taylor to the big screen's heroic Coach Boone in Remember the Titans, these characters are memorable parts of the team in their own right. And let's not forget the O'Shea siblings in Little Giants, who have something in common with this year's Super Bowl coaches, Jim and John Harbaugh, the brothers going up against each other on Feb. 3. Until that faceoff, enjoy some of football's finest fictional leaders!
The trailer for At Any Price pairs Dennis Quaid and Zac Efron as father and son, with heartland-raised Henry (Quaid) hard at work expanding his family-owned farm with its next-generation owner-to-be, son Dean (Efron). The problem is, Dean doesn't want the farm. Dean wants to race cars, and this is just one of the many issues plaguing the family members' lives. Big business is also threatening their moderately sized operation, and it appears family man Henry may not live up to the stand-up guy image he's portraying.
This intense performance in the preview is unlike anything I've seen Quaid do of late, and likewise, my curiosity is piqued by Efron in this emotionally meaty role. I'm looking forward to seeing how the two play off each other, and whether or not this movie will prove to be more than just a ho-hum family drama. Though it already premiered at the Venice Film Festival last August, At Any Price opens in limited release on April 26, and you can watch the trailer after the jump.
