But not quite, of course. Sure, I ran 12 city blocks — in heels — to stand next to him in front of Whole Foods. Yeah, I’m working on a rom-com screenplay about my crush on him. And I definitely am alone in having to suffer through a Goservention. But still, it has come to my attention that I — okay, and tens of thousands of regular folks — am not the only one who has a major boner for Ryan Gosling. Quite a few celebrities — including otherwise straight men — have a special place in their hearts (and spank banks) for the Gos. Read on for some unadulterated Gosling worship… Keep reading »
Lest you think Bradley Cooper’s curly-cue new ‘do is a wig, I draw your attention to the inset photo of Cooper with curlers in his hair from just a few weeks ago. Ladies and gentleman, this is commitment to your craft. Somewhere, Justin Timberlake is having a total flashback moment. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]

When I sat down to watch “Silver Linings Playbook,” I had high hopes. Friends whose opinions I respect loved the film and praise for her performance has made Jennifer Lawrence a front-runner for Best Actress in this year’s Oscar race. I’ve loved Lawrence since “Winter’s Bone” and I’m constantly amazed by her ability to play incredibly tough, independent, strong-willed protagonists.
But “Silver Linings Playbook” left me with an uneasy feeling, and it wasn’t because of the film’s flawed grasp of mental illness or its contrived and formulaic plot. It had everything to do with the treatment of Lawrence’s character. My first reaction to the film when it ended was: “What was with all the slut shaming?” [Spoilers after the jump!] Keep reading »
What does every single dude that’s ever starred in a romantic comedy have in common? Well, they’ve all been impersonated by this guy, and they’ve all been in a movie with Jen Aniston.
J. Lo and Marc Anthony. Sniff. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries. Chin wobble. Demi and Ashton, no last names necessary. Sob! So many celebrity breakups this year, it’s almost as if it’s impossible for love to last in Tinseltown. But let’s stop being negative. Plenty of fun, new couples were formed in just the last few months — here’s a look at 12 couples to watch in 2012.
“It’s so awful that I’m admitting this, but the hell with it: There was such a backlash when they announced it [from people who favor] Ryan Gosling, who I love, and I just made a movie with him and he’s the greatest. And when I say ‘friend,’ I mean me alone, looking at the computer. It’s [paparazzi shots of Gosling] walking around, and he literally looks like he’s in a photo shoot, like he just came off the runway. The peacoat is like this, with the scarf! And then there’s ones of me, and I literally look like the neighbor who never comes out of his house.”
– Bradley Cooper addresses the “controversy” surrounding his being named People’s “Sexiest Man Alive” over Ryan Gosling on “The Graham Norton Show.” I gotta say, even though I don’t believe for a second that Bradley Cooper actually cared that he was awarded such an honor — and I obviously believe Ryan Gosling never wanted it (and, in fact, probably totes turned it down) — I felt kind of bad that the dude couldn’t revel in his sexiness even for a moment. Let me be the first to say, Bradley, that your acknowledgment of Ryan’s handsomeness (and his ability to wear a peacoat with panache) has upped your sex appeal in my book. [NYMag.com]
Bradley Cooper as People‘s “Sexiest Man Alive”? As staff at Salon.com put it, “He kind of looks like a dick.” Personally, we think Brad doesn’t hold a candle to Ryan Gosling, our eternal sexiest man alive (and BuzzFeed has 63 reasons why they agree). Salon has been consistently unmoved by People‘s “Sexiest Men” list that they’ve created a counter-list for the past six years in which sexy is defined in terms more intricate than broad shoulders and twinkling eyes. They take into consideration qualities like principles, cultural contributions, talent, and old-fashioned charm — not powerful publicists. This year, in light of Occupy Wall Street and nationwide Occupy protests, the site was even more passionate about shying away from Hollywood, and sought out men who are truly making the world a better place. We know it’s easy to get drawn into the gossip-ridden gleam of Hollywood, and The Frisky would plead guilty as charged — so we invite you to take a look at Salon’s round-up, a refreshing list that brings the underground, sexy movers and shakers to light. (Like 19-year-old Zach Walhs, above, who was raised by two women and stood before Iowa legislators speaking in support of gay marriage. Swoon!) [Salon.com] Keep reading »
