The Little-Known Roles Of Ten Big Time Celebs

Isn’t it strange watching celebrities in movies made before they got famous? Think of young Leonardo DiCaprio in “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape”—who could’ve predicted he’d one day freeze to death in the ocean and enchant pre-teens around the world? Though his role was respectable, few other now-leading men have been as fortunate. Most of their entries into movies are probably as cringe-worthy for them as middle school yearbook photos are for us. But while the evidence of our journey toward adulthood is hidden in basements and attics, thanks to the wonders of the Internet (namely, IMDB), these celebrities’ rise to stardom is ours for the knowing—and ridiculing.

Quote Of The Day: Natalie Portman Likes To Get Crunk

“I’ve mostly been listening to dirty rap lately. That’s sort of my scene. Really, really obscene hip-hop. I love it so much. It makes me laugh and then it makes me want to dance. Those are like my two favorite things, so combined … I’ve been listening a lot lately to ‘Wait (The Whisper Song)’ by the Ying Yang Twins, where the lyrics are like, ‘Wait ’til you see my dick’ — which is just amazing because it’s whispered. [whispers] ‘Wait ’til you see my dick…’ Crazy. So I just listen to it like I’m a five-year-old, like, ‘Oh my god! I can’t believe he just said that!’”

RIP: Adam “DJ AM” Goldstein

Adam Goldstein, aka DJ AM, one of Hollywood’s (and the country’s) most loved DJs, was found dead in his New York apartment yesterday. He was 36. Almost one year ago, Goldstein and musician Travis Barker survived a fatal plane crash in South Carolina, in which they both received severe burns. Goldstein was also a recovering drug addict, having developed an addiction to crack cocaine in his 20s. Though he had been sober for the past nine years — and had recently finished filming an MTV reality show about addiction — Goldstein’s body was allegedly found next to bottles of prescription drugs and other drug paraphernalia, including a pipe commonly used to smoke crack. Friends say he had been dealing with the lingering emotional trauma of his near-death experience last year. Goldstein’s last Twitter update, from Tuesday, quoted Grand Master Flash, saying, “New York, New York. Big city of dreams, but everything in New York ain’t always what it seems.” [NY Post] Keep reading »

Lindsay Lohan’s “Comeback” To Be Televised?

Remember that time in 2008 when Dina Lohan told TV Guide that she didn’t want Lindsay to appear on “Living Lohan” by saying, “Doing reality TV would almost be taking a step backward as far as her career goes.” Isn’t that a hoot?! Because a year and only one casting in an ABC Family movie later it seems that Lindsay is ready to take a giant leap backward for mankind. Keep reading »

Joe Francis Assaults A Chick. Again

Joe Francis is the guy we’d most like to vote off planet Earth. The Girls Gone Wild impresario (wait, I’m revoking this term since it includes the word “impress” and there ain’t nothing impressive about Francis) got in a scuffle last night at Guys and Dolls in Los Angeles, and allegedly assaulted a woman. And not just any woman—Jayde Nicole, Playboy‘s Playmate of the Year for 2008, who you know as Brody Jenner‘s girlfriend on “The Hills.” Here’s what supposedly went down, according to TMZ Keep reading »

Star Couplings: Megan Fox Says Kissing Girls Is Safe

  • Megan Fox said she feels safer with women, so kissing Amanda Seyfried in the film “Jennifer’s Body” was comfortable for her. [PopEater] — How interesting, considering Amanda said she didn’t enjoy kissing Megan.
  • Anne Heche‘s ex, Coley Laffoon, responded to her “Letterman” comments by saying: “After coming home from showing two different clients two different condominiums, I was disturbed to see Anne taking out her personal frustration on the father of her child on national television.” [Dlisted] — That was a mature response Anne Heche won’t be able to respond to.
  • Keanu Reeves isn’t dating Cameron Diaz as their dinner outing last week suggested. He’s back with his ex, Anita Hodson, and the two could be planning marriage. [Starpulse] — I can’t really see Keanu with Cameron because he’s too somber-looking for her.

Quote Of The Day: André Leon Talley Loves “The Golden Girls”

“They have a sense of being at home, always wearing different robes and nightgowns. For me it’s one of the greatest shows ever. Helmut Lang loves ‘The Golden Girls’ too. He told me he used to rush home to watch it. It’s very uplifting and fresh, it just takes you away from the fashionable world.”

— André Leon Talley, Vogue’s editor-at-large, talks with Time Out New York about his favorite show. “The September Issue,” a feature-length documentary that goes behind the scenes of the Vogue offices during the creation of the September 2007 issue of the magazine — the largest of any magazine to date — opens today in New York City and nationwide on September 11.

John Mayer’s $25,000 Mugshot

Yesterday, after Fall Out Boy singer Patrick Stump was arrested for driving without a license, John Mayer admitted he’d been arrested for the same offense and then Twittered a challenge to Harvey Levin at TMZ: “produce my mugshot, [and] I will donate 25k to the charity of [your] choice.” He even gave a hint: “in the first half of the naughts, in the home of the Brave.” Mayer, it turns out, had been arrested in May 2001 in Atlanta (the case was dismissed the following month). TMZ did manage to score the mugshot, but The Smoking Gun beat them by about five minutes in publishing it. Still, John never said TMZ had to be the first site to produce the photo. So, true to his word, he coughed up $25,000 to be split between the two charities TMZ chose (Pet Orphans and Ace of Hearts, two animal shelters in California). Call it a creative publicity stunt, but I say it’s nice to see a celebrity arrest result in such a happy ending. [via TMZ] Keep reading »
