Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Lieutenant Neil Bucken was stationed in Afghanistan and couldn’t make it home for Christmas or his sister’s birthday, so he did what any normal guy might do — he sent his family in Staten Island, NY, a life-sized ice sculpture of himself holding a bouquet of red roses. Sure. The seven-foot-tall statue includes a photo of himself with sister Sullivan encased in the ice. Bucken has been in the military for the past two years, and stationed in Afghanistan for the past nine months. His mother Donna said, “Half the family was bawling their eyes out. It was just amazing. It was very touching.” [Splash News] Keep reading »
“We shot for hours. And the sun was going down—we were actually stealing that shot, because we didn’t have a permit to shoot on the Brooklyn Bridge, and if we didn’t get it that night, we weren’t going to get it. And so the sun was going down, and she wasn’t telling me. So the only thing I could think of doing was to climb over (the fence on the side of) the bridge. And I never thought she’d let me get that far. I got to the other side. I just looked underneath me, and it was just—water. And it was so high, and I thought, ‘Michelle Williams is trying to kill me.’”
–Ryan Gosling, on shooting a pivotal scene with his “Blue Valentine” co-star Michelle Williams. In the improvised scene, Gosling was told to extract a secret from Williams, and Williams was directed to keep the secret from Gosling at any cost. [The Daily Beast] Keep reading »
No matter how much you ate over the holiday weekend, we’re betting it was not even close to the amount of food that Donna Simpson devoured. The New Jersey woman is angling to be the fattest woman in the world, and is on a quest to weigh a thousand pounds, so she had a lot of holiday eating to do. Donna’s Christmas dinner? How about two turkeys, two hams, a roast, five pounds of mashed potatoes, and 20 pounds of vegetables? And, of course, there’s always room for dessert! For a sweet after-dinner treat, she had a “salad” of marshmallows, cream cheese, whipped cream and cookies. The whole meal took her two hours to eat (that’s it?!) and was around 30,000 calories — that’s, oh, about 15 times the recommended daily caloric allowance for a single day. Still, Simpson has a long way to go to reach her goal. She’s currently at 650 pounds. [NY Mag] Keep reading »
Okay, so most of us spent this past weekend celebrating the holidays with our families. But Natalie Portman, overachiever that she is, decided to get knocked up and engaged. She and hot fiance Benjamin Millepied met on the set of “Black Swan,” where the American Ballet Theater dancer served as her instructor and trainer. And thus far, that’s pretty much all we know about the gorgeous ballet dancer.
