I, predictably, love Johnny Depp. But I am not really feeling his casual way with words in the November issue of Vanity Fair. Apparently, in an interview with Nick Tosches, Johnny seeks to show the extent to which he dislikes photo shoots. “Well, you just feel like you’re being raped somehow. Raped … It feels like a kind of weird — just weird, man,” he says. “Whenever you have a photo shoot or something like that, it’s like—you just feel dumb. It’s just so stupid.” [NY Post]
Johnny apparently didn’t get the message that comparing things that aren’t sexual assault to sexual assault is hugely insensitive and just wrong. How we wished he’d learned from these celebs who did it before him.
“I’m not that good looking. I think I’m a pretty weird-looking guy. Every role I got up until ‘The Notebook’ [in 2004] was the weirdo, freak, psychopath, nerd, outsider character guy. I think things have changed.”
– Ryan Gosling is not nearly as convinced of the legitimacy of his dreamboat status as the rest of the world. Hey, Ryan, we have something in common. I don’t think I’m that good looking either, which means that I’m totally in your league. So, let’s make out. [Chicago Sun-Times]
You might think a world-famous filmmaker and author would be above petty crime. But you would be wrong! Miranda July, the twee mind behind the film “You And Me And Everyone We Know,” has confessed in this week’s issue of The New Yorker to a sordid history of shoplifting. Her first time stealing was during her freshman year of college when she nabbed a package of Neosporin. The minute a guard apprehended her, she wet her pants. And if you think that an incident of public peeing might have put the woman off from shoplifting, you would be wrong again! July continued to shoplift at the grocery store and even at Goodwill. (Yes, this woman stole from charity. Oof.) If you ever go to one of Miranda July’s book signings, watch your purse. [New Yorker]
Alas, Miranda July isn’t the only celeb with sticky fingers. Here are 10 more female celebs who have (allegedly) given themselves a five finger discount.
Personally, I wouldn’t have found Marilyn nearly as cool.
