Jennifer Aniston is usually a style no-brainer. She always looks good. And her hair? Her hair is incredible! But this black and white number she wore to the 6th American Cinematheque Award Honoring Ben Stiller — I’m not really feeling it. It reminds me a bit too much of the Jessica McClintock prom gowns I used to page through in my mom’s JC Penney catalog when I was a kid. Which has a certain nostalgia, sure, but isn’t very 2012-appropriate. But what say you?
Back in 1999, Ben Stiller got together his pals Jack Black, Owen Wilson and Ron Silver (playing himself!) to make a failed pilot called “Heat Vision and Jack.” Black plays a renegade astronaut, whose catchphrase is “knowledge is power, for real” and Wilson plays his friend who was accidentally turned into his motorcycle. Ron Silver is the guy out to get both of them. It’s … terrible, but in a totally hilarious way, and I end up watching it at least once a year because it’s so ridiculous. Enjoy! [YouTube]
Oh hey, this is just a picture of Ben Stiller volunteering to help Hurricane Sandy victims in Brooklyn yesterday. And again, for ways you can help, check out this amazing list of opportunities.
More specifically, they tell us about their use of MariHuana. I’ll bet Ben Stiller is cringing right now. No one wants to hear about their parents getting stoned. Anyhow, the takeaway here? All you Cali stoners out there, get off the couch and vote today. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
Anne Meara and Jerry Stiller are the funny parents of the also very funny Ben Stiller — and they want to talk to you about Spacebook. I mean, Facebook. Watch Meara tell Jerry, “My name is Melissa and I just got my period.” I could watch these two talk about fabric swatches and still laugh. And check out their second episode
, where Meara calls “Jersey Shore”‘s Snooki “a little troll.” [Yahoo

Word is that a sequel to “Zoolander,” everyone’s favorite male model movie, is in the works. For those of you who
are missing out on life haven’t seen the original, here’s the breakdown. Ben Stiller plays Derek Zoolander as he teams up with rival model Hansel (Owen Wilson) to take down an evil fashion designer (Will Ferrell), all while looking fabulous. And by “fabulous,” we mean gelled hair and the most ridiculous man clothes we’ve ever seen. Zoolander’s patented Blue Steel pose had us breathless the first time around, and we only hope it can keep us gasping this time. No word yet on when the movie will be out, but apparently Justin Theroux is going to Paris Fashion Week for “research” purposes, so we hope it’s soon! [Elle UK] Keep reading »
Oy gevalt! How psyched are we that Jake Gyllenhaal, Christina Applegate, Ben Stiller, and Debra Messing are helping Grover out in a 12-part series called “Shalom Sesame,” a Jewish version of “Sesame Street.” The show will teach bubbelehs about Jewish culture, complete with a visit to Israel to check out important landmarks. The show has been done before in 1986 and 1990, with stars like Joan Rivers, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Mary Tyler Moore. The premiere of the new version will be circa Hanukkah 2010. I’ll totally be breaking out the Manischewitz, matzo, and macaroons for that one! Now let’s see if I can convert, marry a nice Jewish boy, and produce some half-Jewish babies in time for the launch!

The movie business holds the Academy Awards in such high regard it can make or break a distribution deal. Luckily, actors don’t (always) take themselves so seriously. Aside from the over-the-top gushing that came when past winners introduced the nominees for the acting awards, there were plenty of LOL moments from last night’s Oscars (not including the moment when the camera caught Angelina Jolie laughing at Jennifer Aniston['s joke], above). From Styx lyrics in speeches to Steve Martin’s ego mania, here are our five favorite funnies…

The tag line for the Vietnam War movie spoof Tropic Thunder is “Get Some.” That’s exactly what we want to do with the stars: stud Ben Stiller, juicy Jack Black, and dreamy Robert Downey Jr. It’s easy to see why it opened at number one at the box office. Even out of character, we’re sure this threesome would still make us giggle! To be fair, the whole of Tropic Thunder is raining men — the entire cast is male with bonus babes Matthew McConaughey, Tom Cruise, Steve Coogan, Brandon T. Jackson, and Monday Ménage alum Danny McBride. It’s a big screen flick filled with sweaty, beefy, funny dudes, slinging guns, and running around Hawaii in hot army duds. Clearly, our kind of movie.
