Watch Conan Give Himself “American Hustle” Hair

Nice Hair, Conan

Am I the only who didn’t love “American Hustle”? [Nope! Oveeeeeraaaaaated. -- Amelia] Thankfully, Conan O’Brien gave me a reason to like the movie when he showed us his own take on its opening scene at the MTV Movie Awards. Christian Bale’s meticulous hairstyling routine in the film is funny and all, but Conan’s is a home run. [Laughing Squid]

 

 

RIP Society: Study Finds That Young Girls See Sexual Violence As Normal

RIP Society: Study Finds That Young Girls See Sexual Violence As Normal

Today in Egregious Discoveries About Humanity, a study has found that a big reason women rarely report sexual violence is because they view it as “normal.” The study, which will be published in Gender & Society, reviewed forensic interviews with 100 kids who may have been sexually assaulted. The interviews were conducted by the Children’s Advocacy Center, and the subjects’ ages ranged from 3-17.

The research team found that young women and girls often saw objectification, sexual harassment and abuse to be a normal part of life. Male privilege and a sense of female powerlessness, it seems, was seen by many interviewees as typical. One 13-year-old interview subject justified the fact that boys tried to inappropriately touch her at school because “they do it to everyone.” Keep reading »

Must Haves: 17 Little White Dresses For Spring

There I was, just a few moments ago, sitting at a coffee shop in West Hollywood, sippin’ on a Vietnamese iced coffee and feeling pretty AFB about life, when a random woman approached me and complimented me on my dress.

“It looks so lovely on you,” she said kindly.

“Why thank you!” I replied. “The weather is so beautiful and warm, I thought I’d wear a white dress today!”

Doc To Watch Now: “Bombay Movie” Spotlights An Indie Filmmaker Struggling To Make It In The Shadow Of Bollywood

Doc To Watch Now: "Bombay Movie" Spotlights An Indie Filmmaker Struggling To Make It In The Shadow Of Bollywood
Watch The Trailer!

We’re big documentary nerds here at The Frisky and one doc I’m dying to see is “Bombay Movie,” directed by my friend and former coworker Alex Eaton. The film follows independent filmmaker Raja Menon as he sets out to make a movie that India’s song-and-dance-friendly Bollywood would never support — “ a true story about India’s working class, about the men and women who quietly serve Bombay’s wealthy and are treated as second class citizens.” Without industry support or financial backing, Menon is determined to turns his vision into reality, corralling two foreign producers and a talented group of actors to bring his script to life — but the question asked throughout the film is, “Will anyone want to see it?” More specifically, will Menon be able to convince people — who have endured these hardships in real life — to watch them depicted on screen? You’ll have to watch to find out — and lucky for you, “Bombay Movie” is available on iTunes today! And if you’re in New York City and have no plans tonight (or ones you can cancel), you can attend a screening of the documentary at IFC Center at 6:15. Get tickets here! [Bombay MovieiTunesFacebook]

Model Irina Shayk Sunbathes With Some Pigs

Usually, the only pigs a supermodel has to deal with are the kinds who lurk around the bottle service tables at nightclubs. On a recent trip to the Bahamas, Irina Shayk cavorted with a whole new category of pigs: the adorable kind.

Shayk posted a pic on her Instagram of Pig Beach, located on the island of Exuma, where wild pigs run (snort?) free and frolic in the clear blue waves with sexy Russian bikini models.

Check out another cute pic of the porkers after the jump! Keep reading »

Johnny Weir Will Only Get Back With His Hubby If There Will Be No Mutual Masturbation Outside The Marriage

Good news, sort of: figure skater Johnny Weir and his estranged hubby, Victor Voronov, have changed their minds about getting a divorce — but not without signing a bizarre post-nup. When the pair decided to get back together this weekend, Voronov asked that Weir sign a document that apologized for bad-mouthing Voronov to the press and promised to keep Weir’s mom outta their marriage. (Good luck with the  mother-in-law problem, hon.)

In response, Weir wrote up a five-page document that includes the types of behavior that he considers cheating, like sex outside the marriage, kissing others, sexting, Grindr and — wait for it — mutual masturbation. Keep reading »
