11 Hot Guys Who Directed Themselves In Movies

There’s nothing better than a self-directed man. So we’re pretty excited that Ryan Gosling isn’t just set to star in a remake of “The Idolmaker,” the classic ’80s biopic based on the life of music industry bigwig Bob Marcucci—the movie will also be his directorial debut. And he has some pretty big shoes to fill. The director of the original flick, Taylor Hackford, went on to helm “An Officer and a Gentleman” and “Ray” and is currently the president of the Directors Guild of America. No pressure, Ryan. [Huffington Post]

Directing oneself onscreen must be a pretty complicated task. I imagine lots of talking to yourself and running back and forth to watch takes. Plus, you must get pretty tired of looking at your own face on the screen, no? [Not if you are Ryan Gosling and totally beautiful. -- Editor] But many a celebrity has attempted this feat. After the jump, more yummy guys who directed themselves in movies, for better or worse.

Quickies: Meet Arnold’s (Rumored) Love Child & Carla Bruni Is Pregnant

  • Meet the alleged child whom Arnold Schwarzenegger fathered out of wedlock, Tanner Tousignant, who graduated from high school in California last year. Tanner’s mother, Tammy Tousignant, was a stewardess on Arnold’s private jet for 20 years and friends and colleagues of hers say the pair carried on a romance for years. Both 19-year-old Tanner and Tammy deny Arnold’s paternity, although Gawker has compellingly connected the dots to indicate that might not be the truth. [Gawker]
  • And here’s a timeline of Arnold’s sex scandal history, dating all the way back to the ’80s. Bleak. [Shine]
  • If I don’t have anything nice to say about the jewelry collection Mondo Guerra from “Project Runway” has made, I won’t say anything at all. [The Cut]

Today’s Lady News: NYPD Cops Deny Raping Drunk Woman

  • The closing argument by the defense in the trial of two NYPD police officers — one who is accused of raping a drunk East Village woman while his partner napped — gives me the skeevies. You can read all about the case here. In the closing arguments, the lawyers for Officers Kenneth Moreno and Franklin Mata insinuated the alleged victim was a golddigger because she’s seeking a $57 million settlement. “Fifty-seven million — that’s a lot of money,” lawyer Edward Mandery said. “She knows she may never have to work for the rest of her life.” He also called into question the victim’s testimony: she remembers being penetrated from behind, but she was in and out of consciousness while the alleged rape happened. “It’s very dangerous to rely upon the testimony of someone who doesn’t have a clear memory, who doesn’t have an accurate memory,” Mandery said. While I understand the lawyer’s point (and understand his lawyerly reasons for making that point), I friggin’ hate how he is casting doubt on the alleged rape victims story. Rape victims struggle hard enough already to be taken seriously. [Village Voice]

January Jones Says Long-Distance Didn’t Work For Her And Jason Sudeikis

“The long distance kind of petered us out. When you date someone else who’s in the industry, someone has to make the sacrifices. And if no one’s willing to, then you just have to be friends.”

January Jones is on the cover of the June issue of Allure, and inside the magazine talks about why her relationship with Jason Sudeikis didn’t work out. We say big boo to that. We were rooting for those two. [Allure]

Then again, January says dating someone out of the industry has complications, too. Her thought on that after the jump. Keep reading »
