“My mother spends all day in front of the computer and every other day or so, I’ll see her name come up on the caller ID and preemptively open my laptop knowing she’s going to want to address whatever rumor she’s read recently. She also gets really, really upset by—you know, sometimes they write negative stuff about you or in the comments people will say mean things. She’s always like, ‘Ryan, why do they call you a tool?’ or ‘Why do they think you’re a jerk?’ She took particular umbrage with this. She said, ‘I always read in the comments that they call you a DILF. I don’t like that. I don’t know what it means, but I don’t like it.

Hmm, the Food Network might be the only television channel this sorry chump’s mug hasn’t been plastered all over. [Funny Or Die] Keep reading »
“I love to dress up. But that’s just me. I don’t want to lay it on anyone else. If I’m held up as some sort of symbol that you have to be sexy in your 60s … well, why the f**k do you have to be sexy in your 60s? You don’t. You just have to be content and happy and hopefully healthy. I’m not putting [pressure] on people. I don’t see myself that way. And it’s very often [perpetrated by] women journalists. They say things like, ‘Tell me the secret of how you look so good?’” [rolls her eyes] Go away! Don’t do this to other women. Don’t use this interview in that way.”
— Helen Mirren proves she’s still the most kickass lady in all of Hollywood. May we all have such a healthy attitude towards our own appearance, and the appearance of other women, as we age and become less conventionally “attractive.” [Scotsman] Keep reading »
