Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Thank you, Daylight Saving Time, for bringing on the winter blues in full force. Since we’re feeling kind of down, we had “blue” on the mind, and we thought why not give in and wear it on the outside as well? When it’s cold out, the ice queen look can be very becoming. So check out these frosty and icy blue beauty products after the jump!
Our invitations to Tina Fey‘s reception last night at the Kennedy Center, where she received the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, must have gotten lost in the mail. The best of the best came out for Tina — Betty White, Steve Carell, Seth Meyers, Lorne Michaels — but Amy Poehler totally burst our bubble on what it took for this “SNL”/”30 Rock” star to succeed: “a little luck and tons of plastic surgery.” Ha!

It’s a tale of two action movies. The first: “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol.” While filming recently, Tom Cruise repelled down the tallest skyscraper in Dubai, making his way from the 113 to the 112th floor. That’s him in the photo on the right, dangling about 2,000 feet off the ground. “I want to entertain the audience and part of making these movies is doing my own stunts,” Tom said. “I love having the camera right there in front of me, where you can see me holding a shot all the way through.” [Daily Record]
Now let’s contrast this with Shia LaBeouf, who filmed a scene in “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” on Monday. To capture a similar scene, Shia slid down a slide made to look like the windows of a skyscraper. [NY Daily News]
The honest truth is that most celebs don’t do their own stunts because (a) they’re wimps (b) they’re sane or (b) it costs so much to insure them that it’s out of the question for most productions. But in Tom’s honor, here’s a look at other celebrities who aren’t scared of hurting their million-dollar bods.
RyanAir, the cheap-o European airline, has released its fourth calendar of ladies from its cabin crew frolicking on a tropical beach in bikinis. Proceeds from the 2011 RyanAir calendar, which costs $14, will be donated to a German kids’ charity. While, personally, I don’t care if women want to pose in bikinis for a calendar or whatever, I think it’s unprofessional for a company to do one with its employees. I mean, it’s an airline, not Hooters! Although I know the quality that I most appreciate in a flight attendant is her taut stomach. (Sarcasm again, people.) [NY Daily News]
Man, I’m glad I didn’t waste my time in high school reading Jane Eyre because I’m pretty sure the book would have ruined what seems to be an awesome movie! Set to be released in March 2011, the flick based on Charlotte Brontë’s book will star the kick-ass lead from Tim Burton’s “Alice In Wonderland,” Mia Wasikowska and Dame Judi Dench. Best of all, director Cary Fukanaga, who read 24 adaptations of the book (dayum!), feels it isn’t some prissy love story, but a decidedly dark, gothic romance. Suh-weet! Now if only we could get some zombies in there. Oh yeah, and one more thing, I said it once and I’ll say it again, a decade later: “Suck it Mrs. Buckwell, reading is for peeps who don’t have movie theaters!” [The Daily What] Keep reading »
