Toni Collette Fights The Power!

“What do we want? Muriel’s Wedding 2! When do we want it? Now!” Just kidding. The star of “The United States of Tara” and one of my favorite movies, “Muriel’s Wedding,” has not taken to the streets demanding a sequel; she’s just filming a protest scene for her upcoming film, “Jesus Henry Christ.” [Toronto, 6/5/10] Keep reading »

Funny New Blog: “Catalog Living” Captions The Absurdity Of Home Catalogs

I am a complete catalog whore. I love the styling of the clothes in the J.Crew catalog, the ramshackle, shabby chic-ness of the Anthropologie catalog, and the total randomness of some of the furniture placements in the CB2 and West Elm catalogs. Someone has taken that obsession a step further and has imagined the lives led by the imaginary people in home catalogs. On the hilarious new blog Catalog Living, comedian/actor/writer Molly Erdman has cast “Gary” and “Elaine” as the two main — but unseen — characters in the absurd life situations implied by home catalog photographs. For example, the caption for the photo above:

Elaine was not amused by Gary’s passive-aggressive response to her request to “garnish the cocktails.”

Jake And Vienna Face Off: My Great Aunt Mildred Decodes Their Body Language

And my, oh my, did she have some thoughts about Jake and Vienna’s behavior and omissions. Find out her assessment*** of what they had to say — and how they said it — after the jump … Keep reading »

10 Celebrities Who Are Truly Obsessed With Their Pets

13 Celebs Who Are Truly Obsessed With Their Pets

Who would have thought Dirty Harry would have such a soft spot for a wild animal as inconsequential as the squirrel? According to a truly heartwarming story of potentially dubious origins, Clint Eastwood’s best friend is a squirrel named Lola who lives near his office on the Paramount lot. A source says:

“Clint leaves the front door open whenever he’s inside working so Lola can come and go. He gets a kick out of watching her and always keeps a bag of shelled peanuts on the bottom shelf of a bookcase in case she gets hungry. Clint would be so upset if Lola disappeared. He enjoys her company.”

How beautiful! Normally, to quote Carrie Bradshaw (ugh, I’m sorry), I consider squirrels to be rats with cuter outfits, but Clint’s ringing endorsement of the fluffy-tailed creature may have changed my mind. [Contact Music]

In honor of Clint and Lola’s love, here are 12 other celebs who are equally as obsessively attached to their pets.
