One of the films that made its debut at the Cannes Film Festival this week is “The Paperboy,” starring Nicole Kidman, Matthew McConaughey, John Cusack, and Zac Efron. The film is based on Pete Dexter’s 1995 novel of the same name, and is about a reporter (McConaughey) investigating the wrongful conviction of a creepy inmate (Cusack). Kidman plays a woman who is super horny for Cusack’s character, while Efron plays McConaughey’s brother, and somewhere along the way, Efron’s character gets stung by a jelly fish and Nicole pees on him. Apparently, the movie is getting panned by critics, but I think it sounds worth seeing for the pee scene alone. “This is a movie that often seems to be missing important transitional scenes or specific inserts,” wrote New York magazine’s Kyle Buchanan in his review, ”but you had better believe that when Nicole Kidman pees on Zac Efron, that camera is there.” Also: ”Yes, you get a close-up of the stream.” Awesome.

Try as we might to deny it, women have way more in common with their mothers than any of us are willing to admit. They also say that if you want to know what a lady will look like when she’s older, take a look at the one she came out of. So when I saw this picture of Kristen Stewart’s mother, Jules, I practically laughed out loud. Look no further: Kristen is the spitting image of her filmmaker mom, from the straight dark hair and light green eyes to the knowing half-smirk, except that I think Jules just might have the upper hand on her famous daughter when it comes to coolness. KStew’s insouciant attitude and offbeat, punky style make much more sense to me now that I see where she’s coming from. [Hollywood Reporter]
Ooooh, I love how Jessica Alba has taken this ultra feminine floral maxi dress — with its sorbet color palette — and toughed it up a bit with a denim vest. The oversized shades, stacked heels, and soft neutral scarf let the main pieces take center stage. Find out how to steal her style, after the jump! Keep reading »
According to TMZ, this past weekend at Corey Feldman’s house was a dog and pony show. His security guard was forced to make a citizen’s arrest of his stalker, who is also technically his roommate. Hold on, let us back up here. Jennifer Herbert is described as a 6-foot tall, 300 pound friend (well, former friend now) of Corey’s who he allowed to stay in his house and pay rent. Things went downhill shortly after Herbert moved in (as they tend to with friends/roommates). Feldman claims Herbert threatened to harm him, “trash-talked” him in front of his guests and asked his kid “adult questions.” Eek. We should also mention that Feldman and Herbert knew each other through mutual friend Michael Jackson. Anyhoo, Feldman allegedly had a restraining order against Herbert that required she stay at least six feet away from Feldman and his kid while in the house. An in-house restraining order? That’s genius. Putting all the pieces together … it would appear that Herbert violated her in-house restraining order, which led to the citizen’s arrest.
This stalking story makes our brains hurt. I’m sure we will hear more details soon. Corey is not the first famous person to have a crazy stalking incident. Our slideshow of celebrity stalkers will make you glad you aren’t famous. [TMZ]
