Matt Damon and I are pretty much not alike at all, but one thing we could bond over: we both hate snakes. Apparently Damon was so squeamish around the reptiles on the set of his new movie “We Bought a Zoo,” that his co-star Scarlett Johansson made fun of him. “He was definitely sweating a bit, and maybe the sweat formed in the corner of his eye,” she told People. “I said, ‘Matt, these kids are practically juggling the snakes. Hold it together.’” Johansson recalled watching Damon “cry like a baby and rock back and forth when the snakes were spread all over the set.”
Hey, lay off him Scarlett! I’m right there with you, Matt. Snakes are just not right. Click through to check out some other notable — and notably strange — celeb phobias.
Your sister is cheeky, irreverent, and almost always has something inappropriate to say at family gatherings. She’s always been too cool for school, especially all those times she ignored you in the hallway. Hopefully you guys have settled the score by now, but even if you aren’t on quite the same page, there are a few holiday presents that are acceptable for your sassy sister.
First of all, can I get a HALLELUJAH! that Mercury goes direct and out of retrograde tonight? Hallelujah! Thanks for indulging me.
Secondly, today’s “What Are We Wearing” is kind of, sort of NSFW. There’s bare boob! No, none of us is going topless today, but I did receive a bizarre gift in the mail today. It’s an “adult party game” called Titty Grab. It’s a card game, but the main draw is that it comes with a very large, fake, soft, realistic-ish breast. You apparently put it in the center of the table when you’re playing and grab it for some reason. I haven’t read the directions yet, as I have been too busy fondling the tit all day. I ever made the editors pose with it. As it has a rather realistic-looking nipple, I guess you might consider it NSFW-ish. So, warning.
Shopping for dads is weird. You can go the tie route, or the dress shirt route, or the “Billy The Singing Bass” route. (Please don’t go that route.) Can you blame your dad for saying every year, “No, no, don’t get me anything! I don’t need anymore crap”? So I stopped buying my dad “crap.” Usually I end up buying him a book because he is a big reader. However, that is getting predictable! So this year I’ve searched high and low for the perfect gifts for a smartypants dad: a guy who can take apart and reassmble any appliance in the kitchen, a history buff, and someone who listens to NPR (even though he thinks they’re a bunch of dirty hippies). My dad would love every single one of these holiday gifts — I hope yours would, too! Keep reading »
I poured through Stieg Larsson’s Girl With the Dragon Tattoo book series in, like, three weeks, utterly captivated with the compelling story line(s), complex characters, and great writing, somewhat of a rarity for page-turning beach reads. Most of all, I was obsessed with the character of Lisbeth Salander, the unlikely heroine of Larsson’s trilogy. Tough as nails, emotionally guarded, and utterly brilliant, with dozens of piercings and tattoos, Lisbeth is a victim turned warrior. I am excited to see Rooney Mara make the character her own in the American film adaptation of “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,” which hits theaters Dec. 21. (Check out an exclusive photo from the film, above!)
In Lisbeth’s honor, here are 12 other kick ass female film and TV characters and the women who played them.
Boobs. Breasts. Tits. Knockers. Whatever you call them (I hope you call them knockers), having boobs is pretty awesome. And the lovely ladies featured in this quiz possess some of the very best.

This past weekend, celebrities gathered to honor regular folks who have made a difference in their local communities. The CNN Heroes Awards is an annual celebration of activists and advocates who’ve made a difference, and tons of famous faces turned out to acknowledge the award recipients, including Miley Cyrus, Sophia Vergara and Emma Roberts. But doing good and looking good don’t necessarily always go together. Click through to see whose style was heroic, and whose style could use a little help.
Hey, did you watch “Dexter” on last night? Well, I won’t give anything away about the search for the Doomsday Killer or Colin Hanks’ constipated acting technique, but consider this a SPOILER ALERT about an out-of-nowhere possible subplot for the series. On last night’s episode, Debra Morgan’s therapist — who I was kind of hoping might end up igniting some latent lesbian fantasies for our favorite foul-mouthed Lieutenant — suggests that Deb is hot for Dexter. Dexter, of course, is Deb’s brother, though they are not related by blood. While initially pissed off by the suggestion, she starts to, well, entertain the thought that her shrink may be right. Seriously … is “Dexter” really going to go there?! Keep reading »
