Behold, some headlines that were splashed yesterday above these Katie Holmes images, from an ad campaign for H.Stern Jewelers that is currently running in Brazil.

11 Celebs Relive Their Worst Dates Of All Time

Celebs—they’re just like us! Despite their good looks and mega bank accounts, they have a rough time on the dating trail too. Take, for example, miss Tori Spelling.

“Back in my 20s when I was on ’90210,’ I was at a club one night and bumped into a guy that I hadn’t seen since high school. At the time, Donna Martin was making crappy boy choices, but I was determined to find The One! … [We went] to the chicest, most expensive and trendiest new restaurant/lounge in Beverly Hills … He announced, slamming down his menu, ‘I’m not very hungry. What do you say we just get drinks?’ … Four rum and Cokes and two hours of a one-way conversation later, I was way too drunk and bored … I was feeling sick. Actually, the room started spinning at this point … I excused myself from the riveting conversation and bolted for the bathroom … I pushed open the door, smiled with victory, and walked right into—the kitchen. The whole kitchen staff looked up at me. I put my hands up to cover my mouth, but I knew it was too late. A waiter rushed over with a massive copper saucepan where I proceeded to vomit the four rum and cokes and the Cliff Bar I had had at 11 a.m. into it. It was Donna Martin prom night all over again.” [Us Magazine]

Wow. That does sound truly horrendous. And also an amazing story. Click on for more celebs on their most terrible dates.

Casting Close Call: Thomas Jane Could Have Been Don Draper

Jon Hamm has nabbed himself four Emmys playing the now-iconic role of Don Draper on “Mad Men.” But apparently, he was not producers first choice for the role. And he actually knows who the makers of the show originally had in mind for the starring role—Thomas Jane of “Hung.” “Nobody knew who I was. The casting directors didn’t know who I was. I wasn’t on anybody’s lists,” Jon explained on comedian Marc Maron’s podcast this week. “The funny thing was, I think they went to Thomas Jane for it, and they were told that Thomas Jane does not do television.” Hee hee. [Huffington Post]

In Hollywood, this happens all the time—big actors often turn down parts that then make a newcomer a bonafide star. Did you know that Michelle Pfeiffer was the original choice for “Pretty Woman?” Or that Kellan Lutz was turned down audition for Edward Cullen in “Twilight”? Many more examples after the jump.

Who’s Gone Skinny Dipping At George Clooney’s Place?

Last week, Marisa Tomei squealed that she went skinny dipping at George Clooney‘s house in Lake Como. She even implied that her “Ides of March” co-star Evan Rachel Wood had stripped down to splash about with her. “George kind of … I don’t know if he set us up but he certainly set us up really well if that’s what he was doing. We wound up all skinny dipping. Let’s cut to the chase,” she told Conan O’Brien.

Now George has put his two cents in on the matter.

“It’s a tradition at my house,” he said. Hmm, so who else has skinny dipped there?

Men At Work Sued For Plagiarism, 28 Years Too Late

Watch Video

According to the High Court of Australia, the band Men at Work got famous by stealing another’s work. Two years ago, the band was sued for copyright infringement by a company called Larrikin Music. Larrikin claims that the flute riff that is the backbone to the band’s hit, “Down Under,” was stolen from a popular kid’s song called “Kookaburra Sits in the Old Gum Tree.” The song was written more than 70 years ago by a teacher named Marion Sinclair, who passed away in 1988. While Sinclair didn’t made a stink about the likeness when he was alive, now that Larrikin Music owns the rights to his song, they decided to bring the case to court. As the victors, they will be able to seek royalties made on the song from 2002 on. Only someone should probably tell them that this song was the height of popularity …  in 1983. They kind of missed the boat on this one. [Huffington Post]

A First Look At “The Raven,” The Edgar Allan Poe Movie

A Poe TV Show?
Apparently, a Poe TV show is in the works, too. Read More »

I, like everyone else who has read “The Telltale Heart” and “The Masque of the Red Death,” am obsessed with Edgar Allan Poe. And yet, I’ve been a little apprehensive about the fact that Relativity Media is making a movie called “The Raven,” about the classic American author. I had assumed it would be a traditional biopic, but now that I see the trailer, it clearly isn’t. Nope, it’s a thriller that imagines what would have happened if a serial killer in the 1800s had been so inspired by Poe’s stories that he started recreating them. Poe—played by adorable John Cusack—is recruited by a police detective to help him solve the crimes. I don’t know if I love the concept, but I’m at least sold on plunking down $12 to see it. You?
