Women Can Be Funny Too: “Bridesmaids” And Other Hilarious Female Roles

Finally, an outrageous gross-out comedy starring women! Hollywood isn’t exactly known for producing flicks that maximize funny females. Even Bette Midler has lamented the lack of funny women gracing the big screen lately.

That could explain why so many women are eagerly anticipating this week’s release of “Bridesmaids,” which has been described as “The Hangover” starring women. SNL’s Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph lead the cast, with Rose Byrne (“Get Him to the Greek”), Ellie Kemper (“The Office”), Wendi McLendon-Covey (“Reno 911″) and Melissa McCarthy (“Mike & Molly”) rounding out the rest of the bridesmaids.

As they gear up for their friend’s wedding, these bridesmaids don’t just primp, preen, gossip and tut-tut about what their men might be up to at the bachelor party. Instead, they embark on their own crazy adventures, including excessive drinking, cursing, farting, burping and ogling hot men. Read more… Keep reading »

4 Romantic Books To Disgust And Annoy Your Lover

Some articles require a lengthy explanation in order to give the reader a context in which to view them. This is not one of those. What I am doing here is simple: I’m proving, beyond any shadow of a doubt, that romance guru and best-selling author of 1001 Ways to be Romantic, Gregory J.P. Godek is the stupidest, laziest waste of stem cells to ever “write” a book. Every time Godek’s semeny, pizza-covered fingers touch his keyboard, the world’s collective I.Q. drops.

Angelina Jolie Says In Real Life, She Is Actually “Very, Very Soft”

“Certainly my alter ego is who I am 100 percent, a mommy who is changing diapers and coloring all night long. I’m sure I’m very, very soft. I’ve always been drawn to strong characters and I admire strong women, emotionally and physically, just people I feel are fighting for something and have a sense of justice and injustice. I’ve been very lucky that I came to my career at a time that women are being allowed these roles and have such great opportunities for these types of characters.”

Angelina Jolie talks at the Cannes Film Festival about being a part of “Kung Fu Panda 2″ and says that in many ways, it’s closer to who she is in real life than the bad-ass characters she usually plays onscreen. I sort of love the image of Angie coloring all night. I bet she gives good crayon. [PopSugar] Keep reading »

Hermes Vans We Wish We Could Have

I saw images of these custom-made Hermes Vans yesterday and was practically dying. I don’t really wear flats, like, ever, but I might make an exception for these gorgeously patterned skate shoes, which were custom created by Vans for stylist Robert Verdi. The bright patterns and colors practically scream “I know how to have a laid back good time, dude.” Sadly, these slip-ons aren’t going to be massed produced–they were simply made after Verdi brought in some of his vintage Hermes scarves and had the Vans team re-create them in shoe form. But they are inspiring me to grab a paint brush and a pair of canvas tennis shoes and see what happens. Check out a couple other Verdi-special shoes after the jump! [Huh Magazine] Keep reading »
