“I loved movies so much, sometimes, I’d shove them down the front of my pants. I liked the way they feel.”
– Just one of a few notable Ryan Gosling quotes in the upcoming documentary, “Seduced & Abandoned,” according to New York magazine writer Jada Yuan. Ughhhh — that’s a good “ugh,” by the way — he may be joking about his obsession with movies (or not), but the thought of the Gos stick anything down his pants makes me weak. Does he need an extra hand? God, I am such a perv. The fact that this New York magazine piece makes reference to a “Last Tango In Paris” remake starring Ryan is not helping. [NYMag.com via Jezebel]
I keep thinking about a thing I read on Ye Olde Internet earlier this week. It was a passage from the “Saturday Night Live” oral history, Live from New York: An Uncensored History of Saturday Night Live. Gilda Radner was a regular “SNL” cast member from 1975 to 1980, and at one time dated Bill Murray, though their relationship was stormy and contentious. After five years, she left the show to pursue film work, and eventually married fellow comedian Gene Wilder in 1984 (after divorcing from first husband, “SNL” bandleader G.E. Smith).
In 1986, Radner was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. She suffered through chemotherapy and radiation treatments, and went into remission. But two years after first being diagnosed, the cancer came back. She passed away in May 1989 at the age of 42. In the following passage, Bill Murray recounts the last night he spent with Radner.

The Bling Ring – the gang of teenagers who famously stole from the homes of Lindsay Lohan, Megan Fox and Paris Hilton and now is being forever immortalized in a Sofia Coppola movie – not only wanted to rob celebrities of their fancy jewels but also their unmentionables too.
According to Nancy Jo Sales, the journalist who famously interviewed the ring members, the burglars were obsessed with stealing the stars’ lingerie.
“They wanted to look sexy. Looking sexy in a celebrity’s clothes, well that’s even sexier,” Sales told Vanity Fair. Read more on Celebuzz…
I know how it is for big celebrities. You get a taste of fame and you forget about all the little people and monkeys that helped get you to the top. Justin Bieber – adult-sized footie pajama-wearer and Anne Frank historian –– has 24 hours to reclaim his pet monkey OG Malley from Munich, Germany. If he doesn’t come and get the adorable pint-sized Capuchin, the little dude will be sent to live at a zoo in Germany. The pop star/hair gel fanatic had previously been criticized for taking the monkey away from its mother when it was too young. Earlier this month, Bieber signed over the monkey to German authorities, but he still has 24 hours to change his mind.
Biebz, whatever happened to no monkey left behind?
Seriously though, treating animals like disposable props is completely despicable. And this isn’t the first time Bieber’s done this. He had a pet hamster that he callously gave away to a fan. The hamster later died. Somebody stop letting this kid buy pets, please. [Buzzfeed]
That’s been the rumor for a few weeks, but now E! Online has gone as far as to confirm the news, saying that multiples sources have told them it’s true — Blue Ivy is going to be a big sister! Now, I’ll hold off on the mazels until we get official confirmation from Bey and husband Jay-Z, because I don’t want to jinx anything. After all, Jayonce and their brethren are among my primary passions in life, so while I normally get kind of annoyed/jealous when celebs in my age bracket or younger have multiple kids before I have one, I make an exception for my favorite celebrity super couple. Anyway, the countdown, ahem, has started for the Knowles-Carter family to confirm or deny this news! I’ll start chilling the champagne and titanium straws! [E! Online]
Was Miley Cyrus twerking while her makeup team applied her glam look for the Maxim Hot 100 party? Miley is the mag’s choice for hottest woman alive, but the chalky white makeup around her mouth makes her look more like the hottest ventriloquist doll. Like, from far away, her mouth looks like it has skin-colored bandages around it. (Side story: I once hooked up with a guy who tried to cover an ENORMOUS zit on his chin with a small piece of band-aid and it had the same effect.) I suspect an overzealous approach to covering blemishes and/or beard burn around the mouth or a weird attempt at facial contouring is to blame for this makeup mishap. Or twerking, because Miley always be twerkin’.
We may think celebrities are always picture perfect, but every once in a while we see behind the curtain — especially when those bright bulbs are flashing on the red carpet. Makeup is required. More specifically, powder. But it’s a delicate balance. Too much and your favorite celeb may look like a clown, too little and they’re shinier than an oil slick.
