On Friday night, I went to see “Bruno.” I laughed. (Hardest at the part where Bruno goes camping with a bunch of rednecks and, as they sit around the campfire, he asks them which “Sex and the City” character they are.) I cried. (When Bruno’s velcro suit caused chaos at a fashion show, and he’s shunned by the entire Austrian fashion community.) I squirmed uncomfortably in my seat. (When a mom agrees that her 4-year-old would have liposuction in order to land a modeling gig. And again when Bruno crashes a swinger’s party and is repeatedly whipped by a woman with nipple rings. Now that I think about it, at least 40% of the scenes in the movie were squirm-worthy.) But as I left the theater, one big question kept running through my mind—how does Sacha Baron Cohen get away with these stunts without getting sued a hundred times a day? Keep reading »
Happy belated birthday! I hope you’ve given some thought to my suggestions in the last letter I wrote to you. It seems perhaps you have since you’ve maintained a healthy weight over the last few months and haven’t yo-yo’d all over the scale. Personally, I think you look great with a little meat on your bones and it’s not your size that I’m writing about now — it’s your love life.
Oh, Jessica. Jessica, Jessica, Jessica. I heard Tony dumped you the night before your birthday and I was just furious for you! What kind of jerk dumps a girl the night before her Ken-and-Barbie birthday?! But then I heard that the impetus may have been some texts Tony found on your phone from your ex, John Mayer. Oh, Jessica! You and I both know a man doesn’t go snooping through your phone or email unless he’s got reason to be suspicious! So what gives? Are you really still hung up on John?

Megan Fox hates watching herself in movies so much that before she saw “Transformers 2″ she had to drink champagne, and fast. But she isn’t alone. A lot of celebs can’t stand to see themselves on the big screen. Interestingly, the celebs who tend to shield their eyes are the ones that we go ga-ga for. Check out the hotties who don’t see their own movies, after the jump. Keep reading »
Funny Or Die, who manages to get every celebrity you can think of to star in their spoofs, has reminded me of just how adorable and funny Alicia Silverstone is, with this spoof of indie road trip flicks. Says Kelly Draper from LA Weekly, “Someone dies and there’s a LOT of music. Much more music than story,” while Charlie Benson of the Village Voice asks, “Is this a CD or a movie?” Hilarious. Now can someone give Alicia a job already? [Funny Or Die] Keep reading »
Cut-from-stone David Beckham will not be posing in his undies with anyone other than his wife, anytime soon. The soccer star denied reports that he would be posing with Angelina Jolie for new Emporio Armani ads. “She’s an amazing person and so is Brad. They’re an incredible couple—got an amazing family. You know she wouldn’t do it and I wouldn’t do it. At the end of the day, I wouldn’t do it because I’m married,” Becks told “Extra.” In the past, Beckham has posed with his wife, Victoria for similar ads, but rejects rumors about doing the same with Jolie. Having just celebrated his 10th wedding anniversary with Vic and knowing Jolie’s husband-snatching past, Beckham has totally taken the right stance on this one. [Extra]

Natalie Portman has been cast as the female lead in “Thor,” an adaptation of the comic book about the Norse god of thunder. In the film, which will begin shooting next year and hit theaters in May 2010, she’ll play Jane Foster, a nurse who became Thor’s first love. Natalie herself has won the hearts of men of all types with her choice of roles over the years. It seems that with every movie, she captivates another man-genre. With “Thor,” it’s comic book nerds. But who else has become enamored with her? Let’s take a look. Keep reading »
Like every other starlet in the world, Vanessa Hudgens has chosen to go nude in her latest, um, film project, Sucker Punch, where she’ll be stripping down to her skivvies or less. “I’m playing a character named Blondie and it’s set in a brothel in the 1950s, so there’s not a whole lot of clothes,” said Hudgens. Sure, sure. “I think this is my time to really step it up and get to grow up. It will be somewhat different with the content and a few more foul words…” Kudos to the Disney princess for taking the big step to shed her little girl image and stuff. But couldn’t she have found a more original route? So many actresses stripping, so little time. [Metro.co.uk] Keep reading »
Before he was Patrick Bateman, or Batman, or that questionably unsexy temper tantrum throwing douche that we know and love, Christian Bale had a thing for Pac-Man shaped cereal. Luckily he was adorable back then, so posting this ’80s commercial probably won’t make him mad. [Copyranter] Keep reading »
