“There was a luncheon today for the film, and Liza Minnelli hosted it. You know what she said to me? She said, ‘I haven’t felt this way since I saw “On the Waterfront.”’ And she stood up in front of everybody and said, ‘Jared, when I was watching your performance, I felt the way that I do when a friend is going through the hardest time of their life. I felt like I knew you and that I cared for you in the way I would a dear friend.’”
–Jared Leto talks about Liza Minnelli’s response to his performance in “Dallas Buyers Club” with LA Confidential Magazine. I mean, it’s not every day that Liza Minnelli compares you to Marlon Brando circa 1954. That must count as an endorsement for him to win the Oscar, right? [LA Confidential]
I’ve never liked cats. I know this is an unpopular point of view, but the heart wants what the heart wants. And this heart wants everything of the feline persuasion to stay away from her. It’s the allergies, but also, I just don’t like the way they look at me. Should you want to join me in the pursuit of catless-ness, you might be interested to know that new research published in the PLOS ONE journal discovered a link between cat bites and depression.

A Japanese dentist has been arrested for performing a procedure on a patient that absolutely no one has ever heard of. When the 20-something patient visited the the office for a routine exam, the 53-year-old dentist told the woman that her teeth were badly misaligned and that he could fix them by massaging the tight muscles in her chest. No braces or anything, just a little groping will do the trick! Keep reading »
Just because the gift bags for the losing Oscar nominees are valued at $80,000 doesn’t mean that they’re filled to the hilt with exciting goodies. As if losing the most coveted-award in the industry isn’t enough, nominees will have to find a way to deal with the consolation prizes, some of which border on insulting. Keep reading »
After allegedly paying $10,000 for Lena Dunham’s unretouched Vogue photos, Jezebel failed to prove their point about how “insidious” the magazine’s intentions were. While there was some retouching done on Dunham, it was fairly minimal and completely unremarkable — a nip here and a pigeon there to make the images look more streamlined. In a recent interview with Grantland, Dunham shared her thoughts on the whole debacle, calling it “such a monumental error in [Jezebel's] approach to feminism“: Keep reading »

A very sleepy meerkat at the a zoo in Dortmund, Germany was caught trying and failing miserably to keep his eyes open. This is exactly what happens to me every single time I start to watch a movie on Netflix after the late hour of 9p.m. I’m out like a light, even though when my boyfriend calls me out on it, I insist that I am WIDE AWAKE. A word of advice: don’t fight it, guy. Denial only makes you more tired. Night, night. [Daily Picks & Flicks]
Today in strange dating surveys that someone commissioned to promote an app: “dream dates” and imaginary beverage orders. Huh? Yes, exactly. What exactly qualifies a “dream date?” I’m not sure because it’s not specified. And who’s put thought into what their “dream man” or “dream woman” will be drinking? Not I. But if you have, no shame. Maybe you’re just more imaginative than me. According to a survey of 1,000 singles conducted by Wist, an app that makes personalized food and drink recommendations (huzzah!), a lot of daters have spent time considering what beverage their “dream person” would order on their imaginary first date. I’m personally partial to ordering water on a first date like Steve and Linda did in “Singles,” but sadly,the daters surveyed didn’t seem to share my enthusiasm for H2o. Find out what you are hypothetically supposed to drinking when that imaginary person you’ve never met spots you in the corner of a dark bar and finds your drink incredibly sexy… Keep reading »
I’ve been a Richard Simmons fan since I bought the “Sweating To The Oldies” VHS box set at Costco when I was 9. If he had an Instagram feed at that time, I would have been bathed in it. But he has one now and in my opinion, it’s the only celebrity IG feed you need to follow. In case you’re not up to date on the TheWeightSaint’s photographic musings, I urge to get caught up right away. Spoiler alert: there are wigs, there is glitter and there are parrots. Click through to see more reasons why Richard Simmons’ Instagram feed is beyond fabulous.
