Hey Everybody, Joaquin Phoenix Is Still Here And Looking Pretty Fine

I always knew a day would come when Joaquin Phoenix would decide to repossess the hot. At long last, that day has arrived… but where is Casey Affleck with the camcorder to document it?

Approval Matrix: Rating The Men Of Manic Pixie Dream Girl Movies

The Manic Pixie Dream Girl trope is super annoying. Not only because the MPDG is a rather one-dimensional portrayal of femininity, but also because stories featuring her always go the same. She unexpectedly pratfalls into the protagonist’s staid life to shake things up, forcing him to learn a valuable lesson or change his ways, or…

Poll: What Profession Does Your Dream Mate Work In?

Face Off: Rock Star Vs. Actor

Looking like the ghost of Jerry Garcia, Joaquin Phoenix announced, via backwards knuckle scrawl, that he’ll be leaving acting to pursue a music career. Hopefully that idea will last as long as the ink on his hands, or he might wind up in MySpace band obscurity like Russell Crowe! Although, Joaquin certainly is talented, ha…

Oh The Faux Possibilities!

Plastic surgery just isn’t good enough anymore if you want to be an in-demand actor. Image Metrics is literally changing the face of performers through 3-D imaging, and just like a great pair of fake boobs, they’re even better looking than the real thing.

The Daily Hotness: Gaspard Ulliel

Who?, you may be asking. Does it really matter? Honestly, this might be the most exciting Daily Hotness yet, as we just stumbled upon his photos yesterday and our knees instantly went weak in the way that only pouty lipped French men can cause. Gaspard is indeed a French actor, who you may have caught…
