I’m Really Not Sure How I Feel About Exploding Actresses

I’m really not sure how I feel about the new Tumblr “Exploding Actresses.” On the one hand, isn’t it slightly (totally) weird and misogynistic to depict actresses heads being violently blown up? On the other hand, maybe it’s a smart commentary about how negative, stereotypical tropes about women need to be unpacked and exploded. And…

Well Played: What Do You Mean, Amy Adams Is Not A Disney Princess In Real Life?

I have an unreasonably difficult time separating gorgeous ginger Amy Adams from her Disney princess character in “Enchanted.” This is exactly what I imagine a princess would wear should she leave the castle to attend a small awards ceremony, because duh, princesses always wear floor-length Oscar de la Renta, even to fairly casual events.

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 demo is so lifelike, you’ll swear you’ve know…

Hookers On Film: Want A Best Actress Oscar? Play A Whore!

We’ve been thinkin’ about hookers lately, after last week’s poll and our new obsession with Secret Diary Of A Call Girl. After researching ladies of the night in films and TV, we’ve noticed an interesting trend — pricey call girls are incredibly fashionable, as Secret Diary suggested, but news that Darren Star would be producing…

Slideshow: Boob Schmoobs!

Whether or not lil’ Ali Lohan had a boob job, it’s a totally duh-statement that many, many, many actresses go under the knife to fit the typical Hollywood bombshell mold. Not these ladies — and especially not Keira Knightly, who refuses to be digitally enhanced. After the jump, 10 actresses who have embraced their bee…
