Melissa McCarthy’s “Bridesmaids” Character Was Inspired By Guy Fieri

“I read the script and had such a weird, fast reaction to Megan. I knew exactly what I wanted her to look like, to sound like, and I got an intense feeling of ‘I like her so much! This will never work out!’ For the audition, I wore no makeup and a bad pant. Once I look like the character, it really locks me in, even if people sometimes say, ‘We need you not to be repulsive.’ … [My husband] and I are obsessed with ‘Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.’ I wanted to wear a short white spiky wig, and they were like, ‘You can’t actually be Guy Fieri.’ I kept wanting to wear crazy white Oakleys on the back of my head, like he does, but somehow they never got in.”

Emmy nominee Melissa McCarthy tells GQ all about her inspirations for the character Megan in “Bridesmaids.” Too bad they didn’t let her go more in the Guy Fieri direction. She looks kind of cute with short spiky hair, as evidenced by this picture. Even though GQ did feel the need to put her in a bikini, any way they could. [GQ] Keep reading »

Forget Mila: Marine Asks Betty White To Ball


Screw Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis: Sergeant Ray Lewis doesn’t want to take either of them to the Marine Corps. Ball this November. His special lady of choice?

Check It: Angry Birds On A Math Test

Everything I know about physics I learned playing Angry Birds. (Physics is all about different types of birds divebombing mean green piggies, isn’t it?) And now the youth of America can learn from everyone’s favorite iPhone game, too. Boing Boing found this question on a math test — worth seven points — to school the kiddies about fractions and square roots and piggy-killing strategy. [Boing Boing] Keep reading »

Bret Michaels’ Cruise Is Canceled?!?! Some Others You Could Go On, Instead.

Bad news, guys. If you reserved yourself a cabin for the Bret Michaels‘ Super Cruise—the four-day boat trek from Miami with Mr. Poison himself this summer—it has officially been cancelled. According to the company that arranged it, the event was nixed because of “lack of participation.” But Bret says that isn’t the case at all. He says the cruise was coordinated by “a less-than-reputable promoter … who feels he can take advantage of both artists and fans.” He said, “I want to reassure everyone that I have went out of my way to try and make this the best fan cruise on the high seas … Know that I am working hard to right this wrong. All money will be refunded to you.” [TMZ]

But really, dry your eyes. Here are some other pop culture cruises you can go on this year. Keep reading »

Google+ Circles You’d Actually Use

Click here to see larger image.

Have you guys started using Google+, Google’s social networking site, yet? I have, but I must admit I don’t quite get the point of using it over, say, Facebook. (Of course, I didn’t get the point of using Facebook when there was MySpace or MySpace when there was Friendster, so give me a few months.) One unique aspect of Google+ is the ability to sort your contacts into different circles, like “Friends,” “Family,” and “Acquaintances.” But you can also create custom circles for more specific groups of people. Like, say, the ones above or “Ex-boyfriends I hate but still want to stalk” or “Future ex-boyfriends I will someday hate but will still want to stalk.” I’m a sucker for organization so props to Google for that one.
