Ladies, allow me to introduce you to Chris Hemsworth, star of the upcoming film “Thor.” Which guy? You mean, is Chris Hemsworth the guy on the left or the right? Oh, he’s both. On the left, Chris before he beefed up for the role. On the right, Chris after he channeled Cartman from “South Park” and screamed “Beefcake! Beefcaaaaake!” into a mirror while pumping iron. In the end, thanks to a combination of stuffing his gut and lifting weights (if you’re interested in the details, read Men’s Health), Chris gained 20 lbs. of muscle. Look at those guns. Hot. [Huffington Post]

For the most part, Hollywood actors work out. Many of them have nicely maintained physiques on the regular. But even your average Hollywood hottie has to take the muscles up a notch for certain roles. Here are 12 other already drool-worthy actors who beefed up for their craft…

Quickies: Lindsay Lohan Won’t Play Victoria Gotti After All & How Is Willie Nelson Spending 4/20?

  • Oopsies. Lindsay Lohan won’t be playing Victoria Gotti after all. The producer of “Gotti” said “the talks are off” because they couldn’t “reach terms,” i.e. agree on how much she would be paid. He also made a snotty comment about how he only likes to ride “the merry-go-round” with his kids, suggesting LiLo and Co. were difficult to deal with. You don’t say. What a bummer. All of Long Island is in tears! [ONTD, Celebuzz]
  • Justin Timberlake will host the season finale of “Saturday Night Live” on May 21 with Lady Gaga as the musical guest! [Deadline, NY Post]
  • Speaking of Gaga, if you want to listen to Weird Al Yankovic’s cover of “Born This Way,” you have to be able to stomach his nasally voice for longer than seven seconds. (I could not.) [Buzzfeed]

Today’s Lady News: Apparently, Duke Nukem Spanks Women, Too

  • So, allegedly, the new, soon-to-be-released “Duke Nukem Forever” video game doesn’t just involve slapping a woman “to get her to calm down,” but spanking her, too. Now, I’m all for spanking. But I’m for consensual spanking. Honestly, “Duke Nukem Forever” gets more pervy every week. [Kotaku]
  • House Republicans want to use as much as $500,000 of taxpayer money to pay lawyers to uphold the Defense of Marriage Act, which is an anti-gay marriage piece of law that codifies marriage as between a man and a woman. Oh, hell no. [Huffington Post]
  • Why are professional athletes curiously silent during Sexual Assault Awareness Month? That’s a gooooood question. [The Grio]

Introducing The David Yurman Bridal Collection

Evan Yurman, the jewelry designer behind the much-anticipated David Yurman Bridal Collection, says wedding jewelry should speak to the wearer. And most of the pieces in the bridal collection spoke to me when I stopped by the DY townhouse in Manhattan for a preview. The only problem was that I’m nowhere near accepting a proposal or offering one. But a girl can enjoy diamonds nonetheless… Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: The Perfect Polish From Jason Wu

I’m not into polishes that sparkle and shine. My nails are super short (sorry, I’m terrible and I bite ‘em), so I want a polish that minimizes, rather than emphasizes, the damage I’ve done. Enter designer Jason Wu’s collaboration with CND nail polish. He’s created four matte-ish colors ranging from a shocking glam red to a muted neutral purple (it’s called Brigitte, of course!). When I applied, the nail polish dried flattish, but had a neat dimensionality that made it appear unique in different lights. When you want polish that lets you shine, Wu’s where it’s at.

Who Knew Socks Could Be So Disastrous?

I was really feeling Kelly Osbourne‘s retro dress and hat combination and the Rebecca Minkoff “Boyfriend” bag. But that was until I scrolled down to the socks. Why, why, why? The dress already hits her in an awkward place, and the ankle socks cut her off even more. I’m not even going to discuss the shoes. Keep reading »
