Last week, Marisa Tomei squealed that she went skinny dipping at George Clooney‘s house in Lake Como. She even implied that her “Ides of March” co-star Evan Rachel Wood had stripped down to splash about with her. “George kind of … I don’t know if he set us up but he certainly set us up really well if that’s what he was doing. We wound up all skinny dipping. Let’s cut to the chase,” she told Conan O’Brien.
Now George has put his two cents in on the matter.
“It’s a tradition at my house,” he said. Hmm, so who else has skinny dipped there?

I, predictably, love Johnny Depp. But I am not really feeling his casual way with words in the November issue of Vanity Fair. Apparently, in an interview with Nick Tosches, Johnny seeks to show the extent to which he dislikes photo shoots. “Well, you just feel like you’re being raped somehow. Raped … It feels like a kind of weird — just weird, man,” he says. “Whenever you have a photo shoot or something like that, it’s like—you just feel dumb. It’s just so stupid.” [NY Post]
Johnny apparently didn’t get the message that comparing things that aren’t sexual assault to sexual assault is hugely insensitive and just wrong. How we wished he’d learned from these celebs who did it before him.
You might think a world-famous filmmaker and author would be above petty crime. But you would be wrong! Miranda July, the twee mind behind the film “You And Me And Everyone We Know,” has confessed in this week’s issue of The New Yorker to a sordid history of shoplifting. Her first time stealing was during her freshman year of college when she nabbed a package of Neosporin. The minute a guard apprehended her, she wet her pants. And if you think that an incident of public peeing might have put the woman off from shoplifting, you would be wrong again! July continued to shoplift at the grocery store and even at Goodwill. (Yes, this woman stole from charity. Oof.) If you ever go to one of Miranda July’s book signings, watch your purse. [New Yorker]
Alas, Miranda July isn’t the only celeb with sticky fingers. Here are 10 more female celebs who have (allegedly) given themselves a five finger discount.
Warning: if Rihanna ever calls you the “c-word,” she means no offense! According to RiRi, people in Barbados are a lot more casual about using see-you-next-Tuesday than people elsewhere in the world. “‘Yeah, it’s funny. That word is so offensive to everyone in the world except for Bajans,” she told British Vogue. “You know African-Americans use the n-word to their brothers? Well, that’s the way we use the c-word. When I first came here, I was saying it like it was nothing, like, ‘Hey, c**t,’ until my make-up artist finally had to tell me to stop. I just never know.” [Metro UK]
Good to know. But Rihanna isn’t the only celeb with a dirty mouth. Here’s nine other celebs just cruising to get their mouths washed out with soap.
Don’t you hate it when one of your favorite hunks opens his mouth and says something boneheaded? Old Spice Guy Isaiah Mustafa got in trubs this weekend when he made offensive comments about black hair. He was chatting with Guiliana Rancic on E! News about his new show, “Charlie’s Angels,” and she lobbed him a softball question about what he looks for in a woman. Mustafa then asked if she had taken a look at his hair, implying it looked bad, and how he wants someone to make him look better. Rancic then asked if he wanted a woman with “real hair” and he replied:
“Yes, it does have to be real hair. I want my kids to have nice hair so she better have good hair. Cause, I don’t know if you’ve checked my hair out lately. Aside from today it’s normally nice. Today it’s slightly nappy.”

Jason Biggs, we hardly knew ya. The “American Pie” actor (seriously, is he known for anything else?) is having his dirty laundry aired by none other than his own lovely wife, Jenny Mollen. Mollen wrote an essay for the Playboy owned website, The Smoking Jacket, revealing how she and Biggs hired a prostitute for his birthday.
So my husband and I got a whore. I’m hoping, unless you’re some sick depraved dissolute of a person, this isn’t the kind of thing you hear everyday. If it is, f**k you, I thought it was pretty gangster. So, ok, where do I begin? I wanted to do something special for his birthday, isn’t that how all these stories start?

Kidnapping — or publicity stunt? Tareq Salahi of Bravo’s now-cancelled “The Real Housewives of D.C.” claims his wife Michaele Salahi, one-half of the White House party-crashing duo, has been abducted. TMZ reports that Michaele Salahi supposedly left for a hair appointment yesterday, but never made it there and never returned. He claims he got a phone call from his wife from an unfamiliar phone number late last night and she told him she was headed to her mother’s house; when Tareq called Michaele’s mother, she said they had not spoken. Now he is afraid Michaele Salahi has been kidnapped and contacted the police. Police reportedly told him that Michaele already contacted them and said she refuses to go home to Tareq because of “family problems.” Keep reading »
UPDATE: Bummer, y’all. Scarlett’s lawyers have spoken and requested that we — and the rest of the internet — take down the photos. But luckily, Scarlett has inspired an internet meme: #ScarlettJohanssoning. Check out these folks trying out ScarJo’s patented pose here.
Back in March, it was revealed that Scarlett Johansson—along with about 50 other famous folks—had nude photos stolen from her iPhone by an especially ambitious hacker. Authorities said they had caught said person, and that the motivation for grabbing the photos (he or she also found those ones of Vanessa Hudgens) was the thrill rather than money. But now, the photos have surfaced online. We’d love to think that ScoJo was too smart to snap images of herself in the buff since these things always get out, but alas not. This one, at least, is nicely arty. Let’s just hope it wasn’t intended for Sean Penn. [ONTD]
Say what you will about Madonna and her high-maintenance (some might say “bitchy”) attitude towards gifts of flowers. But at least the woman has a sense of humor! Here’s a short film Madonna posted on YouTube today about her hatred of hydrangeas. Let it be known, peons, she prefers gifts of roses. [NYmag.com] Keep reading »
