Where Are The Wrinkles And Zits?

Magazines tamper with photos to make women appear skinnier, more busty, and wrinkle-free. That’s a given. But in movies, you can sometimes see a little breakout or some crow’s feet on an actor’s face when there’s a closeup shot. It might be a little mean or insensitive, but I find it reassuring to know that even really attractive people get zits every now and again. Sadly, though, these minor blemishes in movies will be going the way of the double-chin in magazines. With Photoshop-like programs, post-production companies can correct or change colors, erasing frown lines, and shave off 5-o’clock shadows, and it’s happening more often now that the cost has gone down. Digital coloring specialist Stefan Sonnenfeld told NPR that he had touched up Tom Cruise’s face in Mission Impossible: III and Johnny Depp’s in Sweeney Todd, and some stars even have digital coloring written into their contracts. Perhaps this will negate the need for Botox? [NPR] Keep reading »

The Daily Squeeze: Online Shopping, Sticky Hair, And Rat Research

  • Men spend more money shopping online than women and are less likely to return items. Supposedly, men need to do things quickly because they value their time more. Or women just enjoy shopping and men see it as something that needs to get done before they can play Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
    [WSJ via Chicago Tribune]
  • A 21-year-old woman has filed a $200,000 lawsuit against American Airlines, saying they failed to protect her after a male passenger moved to a seat next to hers and reportedly masturbated beside her. The woman awoke on the flight with “a substantial amount of an extremely sticky substance in her hair.” [AHN]
  • Low sperm count and some other issues associated with male fertility might be determined in the womb. In a study of rats, researchers at the University of Edinburgh found that the levels of male hormones in a mother’s womb may determine the future reproductive health of her offspring. [BBC]

    The Daily Hotness: Joseph Gordon-Levitt

    Dang, remember when Joseph Gordon-Levitt played little Tommy Solomon, the youngest alien on 3rd Rock From The Sun, alongside John Lithgow and the annoying French Stewart? Homeboy has grown up! Now starring in Kimberly Pierce’s Stop Loss with Ryan Phillippe (about a group of soldiers sent back to Iraq for another tour of duty), Gordon-Levitt is 27 and majorly fine. Speaking of war, Gordon-Levitt is currently filming G.I. Joe, in which he plays Cobra Commander. Maybe this is a dude flick we’ll actually want to see. Keep reading »

    Star Couplings: Punky Brewster Pops Out A Baby!

  • Punky Brewster (aka Soleil Moon Frye) had her second child with hubby Jason Goldberg, a girl she’s named Jagger Joseph Blue. We’re going to take a cue from DListed and see this as an excellent reason to post the opening credits for our favorite TV show when we were 8. [DListed]
  • Seriously, what is the deal with Britney Spears and Mel Gibson being new BFFs? If we reached out to Brit would she be friends with us too? [Us Weekly]
  • Madonna’s longtime publicist says that Madge and Guy Ritchie’s marriage is not on the rocks. Okay. [DListed]

    Charlotte York McDougal Goldenblatt Would NEVER!

    Speaking of Sex and the City…does Kristin Davis (aka Charlotte from SATC) have a sex tape? There’s an image floating around the internet that looks just like her (totally NSFW which is why we are not posting it here) and sources say a porn company is shopping a sex tape featuring the star. We have no idea if this is true, but we do know that Charlotte’s panties would be in a serious wad over this. Girlfriend wouldn’t even give a beej! [DListed] (Don’t worry, this link is safe.)

    How Many Pairs Of Shoes Can $25 Million Buy?

    The SATC character who probably made the most money on the show (fancy corporate lawyer Miranda) is played by the actress who is worth the least (Cynthia Nixon), and the character who made the least (Carrie) is played by the actress who is worth the most (Sarah Jessica Parker). According to an article in the April issue of Portfolio, Cynthia’s market value is $2.5 million, while SJP is worth $25 million. The person who really got shortchanged is Candace Bushnell. She’s only got around $3.25 million. Poor girl. [Portfolio] Keep reading »

    Betsy Ross To Marry Benjamin Franklin

    Although Benjamin Franklin had a hand in a lot of great American accomplishments, he never put the moves on Betsy Ross, the lady who stitched the first flag — that is, until now. Philadelphia’s favorite Benjamin Franklin impersonator, Ralph Archbold, is engaged to the best Betsy Ross impersonator, Linda Wilde. Oddly enough, the couple met at a wedding on September 1st, the same date our forefather Franklin married his wife in 1730. The betrothed modern day Betsy and Benjamin are both widowers with an interest in history, role-playing, and costuming. My Jewish grandmother would call them bashert, but the serendipity of it all doesn’t require Yiddish. Congratulations to the happy historical couple! [Santa Cruz Sentinel] Keep reading »

    Even Politicians Love A Ménage À Trois

    It may seem like we’re overly focused on Northeastern U.S. political scandals here at The Frisky, but if Northeastern politicians would stop indulging in such pervy personal business, we would stop. The latest from the region that was proud to call Eliot Spitzer “The Love Gov”? That other dilly-dallying Governor — former NJ Governor Jim McGreevey — has even more skeletons in his closet…though it seems to be more of a strike against his ex-wife Dina Matos. McGreevey famously resigned from his post a couple of years ago because a former aide accused him of sexual harassment — he later came out as a homosexual. His ex-wife Matos (whose fashion sense we admired only a few days ago) wrote a book about her “sham” of a marriage and said she was totally blind-sighted by her husband’s admitting that he was gay (he claims she knew all along). Well now the former driver for the couple says that he used to have threesomes with the pair every Friday night — and McGreevey has backed up the claim as TRUE. Might Matos’ tell-all be as big a sham as her marriage? Hope she still has that powder blue suit and pearls — this scandal is far from over. [Yahoo! News] Keep reading »
