Say what you will about the choices Diablo Cody has made as a result of her fame from “Juno,” but the woman takes risks — huge risks — with what she puts out there. (That campy Megan Fox/Amanda Seyfried horror movie that flopped? Exactly.) Her newest movie coming out this holiday season is called “Young Adult” and stars Charlize Theron as a 30-something woman who heads back to her hometown looking for her ex, who is married with a new baby. I think you’ll agree with me after watching this trailer that this film is going to be risky. Keep reading »
Was there ever any doubt that Melissa McCarthy goes there and then goes 100 paces farther? Add the “Bridesmaids” sex tape as another piece evidence in the case for her complete fearlessness in the pursuit of being funny.

Three women from Africa and the Middle East have been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for 2011. Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf (pictured), peace activist Leymah Gbowee, and democracy activist Tawakul Karman of Yemen have all been honored for their commitment to nonviolence.

It’s hard to say whether doing that, or letting Snooki think he did that, is the more douchey thing to do.
So, thanks to him, we learned a new Jerseylicious acronym: GTD or “Gym, Tan, Drama.” Though GTD could just as easily be “Gym, Tan, Domestic Violence,” because Snooki freaked the f**k out on Mike and chucked like 12 wine bottles at his head.
