I suspect that James Franco has a touch of the “Megan Fox”-ies. No, he doesn’t suffer from aggressive sexyface (not with that hipster ‘stache, anyway) or toe-thumbs; rather, James is king of the sound byte. James Franco-isms get so bizarre sometimes that I suspect they may not be true.
The latest example: When asked what turns him on during a visit to “Inside The Actors Studio,” James said rabbits. “Sometimes rabbits, like, turn me on. I don’t know why.” Ooookay. [PopSugar]
After the jump, let’s revisit some other classic James Franco quotes: Keep reading »
“I felt more like a failure than I’d felt in a very long time. We actually [hadn't] been trying that long … I don’t know that I took it as seriously as I should have because it happened so fast. But then when I heard the doctor say there was no heartbeat it was like—bam—like a knife through the heart … I hope that women can get to a place where they can finally talk about it because it’s so great to find comfort in other people’s stories and experiences because it’s so common.”
—Lisa Ling on “The View” discussing her miscarriage, which happened six months ago. I really admire when women in the public eye feel comfortable opening up about their personal tragedies. It’s very inspiring and I think a lot of women will be able to relate. Lisa even started the website Secret Society of Women where women can share their deepest, darkest secrets anonymously.

In this video, Bradley Cooper tries to get you to buy a pill to make you, well, awesomer. “Before, I was unmotivated, unhirable, and undatable. I was a complete and utter mess,” he says. “And then I discovered NZT and my life changed.” OK, fine, Bradley isn’t really trying to sell you this—it’s for his new movie, “Limitless,” in which he stars alongside Robert De Niro and Abbie Cornish. I appreciate the authenticity of the spoof, from the background music to the random shots of Bradley swimming in the ocean. Keep reading »
“I’m a promoter of masturbation. Don’t sleep around—learn yourself first! Guys do, but girls don’t. And that’s why girls have so many bad experiences. But you can know your body, know yourself, know what feels good. You don’t have to give yourself away just to have sexual relevance. Because I don’t think sex is something people should be afraid of. It’s part of human nature, so I don’t think it should be so shameful—particularly for girls and young girls.”
– Taylor Momsen, 17, quite eloquently, I think, sings the praises of self-love. [The Guardian U.K.] Keep reading »
“I just felt like I was around all these kids who were fulfilling their destiny, and you can tell when you look at someone like Christina Aguilera and she’s 12 years old and she’s got that voice. She’s right where she’s meant to be. I didn’t feel that way. I can sing, but I’m not like Christina. These people were child prodigies and a child prodigy I was not. I think the ‘Mickey Mouse Club’ even wondered how I got there. I didn’t work very much on that show. I think I saw some regret on Mickey’s immobile face.”
— Ryan Gosling on his experience as a Mouseketeer on “The New Mickey Mouse Club” alongside pop tarts like Christina, Britney Spears, and Justin Timberlake. Cheer up, Ryan! You’re the only one who has been nominated for an Oscar. [PopEater]

“I look very different from [Blaine]. He has slicked-back hair, while I have really curly hair. And I never shave. I’m kind of a bum.”
—Darren Criss, i.e., Kurt’s prepster love interest on “Glee,” says that in real life, he doesn’t look much like his character. We’re sure both versions are adorable. [In Style] Keep reading »
“[Kassius] got wasted. He got really wasted. But he made it through. He sobered up in time.”
—Brian Austin Green talks about his wedding to Megan Fox. FYI, Kassius is his 8-year-old son with his ex-wife. Bwahahahaha! Wait, that’s completely not funny. A joke in poor taste, Brian. [Us Weekly] Keep reading »
Helen Mirren is one of those people who, when she talks, you listen. This Tuesday, the Dame received the Sherry Lansing Leaderships Award — so named for the former CEO of Paramount Pictures — at The Hollywood Reporter‘s annual Women in Entertainment breakfast. Although consummately gracious for receiving her award, Helen criticized the subtle sexism of Hollywood, which puts older actresses out to pasture while keeping older male actors in the stables and produces films that “worship at the altar of the 18- and 25-year-old male and his penis.” Helen’s summation? “Quite small, I always think.”
After the jump, a transcript of Helen’s speech: Keep reading »
We were pretty impressed and surprised by the following facts about Jessica Simpson:
- Her style endeavors have been something of an undercover winner. Apparently, in 2010, her empire of fashion and cosmetics will net $750 million.
- She is the only celeb fashion entrepreneur to top $1 billion in annual sales.
- Her net worth is $100 million, but not for long … it’s expected to go way, way up.
- Next year, she’s expanding her brand even more to include a new sportswear line.
We knew that stuff was selling, but we didn’t realize it was really, really selling. [AOL] Keep reading »
