This may be a controversial thing to say, but I was slightly disappointed that Ryan Reynolds was named People’s Sexiest Man Alive this year. He’s hot enough, sure, but sexiest man alive? I’m not sold. What about Jon Hamm, as Wendy suggested? Or dare I say it—Jake Gyllenhaal? Oh well, I’m over it. Click through to see which other drool-worthy dudes have held the title in the past decades. Tell us your faves in the comments.
Kate Middleton‘s engagement ring just so happens to be a hand-me-down from the late Princess Diana. Although this family treasure is very dear to Prince William’s heart, the superstitious among us would agree that Kate should never have accepted it. Why? Well, because it’s widely believed that jewelry can be cursed. Take the Hope Diamond, for example, which many believe has been cursed since it was stolen in 1642. Since then, tragedy, injury, or even death has befallen all those who have come in contact with it, including Marie Antoinette. Even if you don’t believe that jewelry can be cursed, I always heard the old wives’ tale that engagement rings are supposed to carry the energy of the marriage from whence it came. Meaning it’s bad luck to inherit a ring from an unhappy marriage. So essentially Kate is wearing the ring of a troubled princess who had a very bad marriage, not to mention a tragic end. If I were Kate, I might have hoped for something with a little bit less bad ju-ju. [Hottnez]

“I had no idea, and please excuse me, that you guys call a condom a rubber. My version of a rubber is like an eraser, so I’ve done that. I’ve very loudly asked for a rubber … that was embarrassing.”
—Emma Watson tells David Letterman about how British slang got her in trouble at Brown. I’m sure the college boys are utterly charmed when she asks for a “plastic,” “rubber,” or a “snog.” [Celebitchy] Keep reading »
Former President Bill Clinton is taking on a new role … as an actor. Clinton has signed on to make a cameo appearance in “The Hangover 2,” which is filming in Thailand as I type. Wait a second. Does that mean Bill has taken on the role originally slotted for Mel Gibson? If so, Zach Galifianakis got himself a serious upgrade. [Sorry, that role went to Liam Neeson. -- Editor] [People]
