Model Agyness Deyn may have just gotten her big acting break. Sure, she had a cameo in “Clash of the Titans,” but soon we’re going to get to see more of her on the big screen. A lot more. She’s landed the role of Flo, a “strong-minded stripper” in a remake of the the cult classic “Pusher.” Here is the first pic of Deyn rocking a red nipple tassel and trashy lingerie. It may not be the couture she’s used to, but she’s working it. Deyn is not the first to get on the pole for a role. Click through to see some more actresses who’ve played strippers. [Telegraph UK]
Last night, Angelina Jolie, Jessica Chastain and Viola Davis turned out for the 2011 New York Film Critics Circle Awards, the start of this year’s official “self-congratulatory awards season.” While Angie looked typically gothic gorgeous in black and white, and Chastain, who co-starred with Brad Pitt in “Tree of Life” missed the mark in a strange, shimmery opalescent dress that did nothing for her fair skin and red hair. The real sartorial star of the evening was Viola Davis, whose choppy bangs and one-shoulder pink cocktail dress really shone. [Getty Images]
“Feminism is not only for women. It’s something everyone can participate in, and evolve together, as the first step in the right direction. I see feminism as a tool to achieve … balance and peace. … Patriarchy is a fundamental imbalance underlying society. And it’s one we rarely address because it’s so universal.

It has always surprised me how some people think feminism means a matriarchy in the sense of oppressing men and women being in control of society. Really, people who care about gender equality care about just that: letting who you are dictate your opportunities, not your gender. How come that’s so hard to understand? [Independent UK]
Sometimes a 17-year-old pop star is just that — a big, goofy 17-year-old who wants to make out with his girlfriend all the time and have blue balls and sing trite, easily hummable lyrics about puppy love. So why, then, would V Magazine deign to put Justin Bieber in a friggin’ pith helmet? He’s got no clue what to do here. On the upside, he looks soooooo pretty. He’s like, the prettiest girl ever.

Last week we told you about Chelsea Gill, the perky girl who wrote her main celeb crush Jason Segel an adorable ditty and posted it on YouTube. Gill asked Segel out on a date — just a drink or coffee, she suggested. And amazingly, her online plea worked! Segel invited the Chicago-based Gill to attend the Chicago Film Critic Awards with him — and she could bring her best friend and identical twin sister along, too.
So what was Segel really like?

The Frisky staff has put me on an RG Diet as part of New Year, New You Month, in which I am not allowed to gratuitously post about him or say his name too often or stalk him online constantly. However, I am not on an Emma Stone Diet, so I think I can safely post this photo comparison without risking punishment.
