There’s no questioning whether or not everybody loves Jennifer Lawrence, or whether or not she is deserving of this widespread love. She’s beautiful but in a way that seems of this earth, genuinely, unabashedly funny, compassionate, and eschews the starving-starlet mold — essentially, everything the America of 2013 wants out of a female celebrity. But is she America’s Sweetheart, and also who gives a fuck? Julia Roberts, OBVIOUSLY, the O.G. A.S. (no?) who had some thoughts to share regarding whether or not she would extend to Jennifer the invitation to her clurb. Vanity Fair said of Julia’s reaction, “Seriously, this 67-second video should be nominated for its own Oscar for best Live-Action Short. American Studies majors will no doubt be studying it for decades to come.” It’s true. That’s some pretty subtle shade you’ve got there, Julia … [Celebitchy]
What, did you really think footage of Kanye West‘s histrionic proposal to Kim Kardashian (“PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!”) wouldn’t make it to the Internet in less time than it took for us to fully grasp just how foolish it is for Kanye not to insist upon a prenup? Trick question: nobody will EVER fully grasp the absurdity of that decision. So here it is, y’all, the “leaked” reel, shot by YouTube co-founder Chad Hurley, of the “greatest moments” from the super-intimate occasion. Naturally — naturally — much of it is set to Kanye’s own music. [Dlisted]
Julia Louis-Dreyfus is a fucking genius. Let me lay it out for you: the actress and comedienne, perhaps best known as “Seinfeld”‘s Elaine, has received four Emmys, a Golden Globe, and five Screen Actors Guild Awards. She’s the only woman to have won the Emmy for three separate comedy series, and is also the most nominated actress in Emmy Award history. So yeah, Julia kills it, really kills it, and she continues to kill it, most recently on “Veep” … and in this brand new meltdown clip, which Jimmy Kimmel released into the wild.
Now, YouTube and similar video sites all but runneth over with film of people freaking out in public. Kimmel speculates that this readily-available resource has driven actual actors and performers to raise the bar, because if you can watch tens of thousands of regular people having a meltdown, shouldn’t entertainers then be able to determine the best means by which to simulate the most realistic meltdown possible? Julia throws down the gauntlet with this hilarious, amazing, unsettlingly lifelike freakout about gluten-free food, juxtaposed perfectly with real clips of Regular People Freaking Out. (Jimmy is quick to clarify that this video is, in fact, a joke. Remember what happened last time?) It’s unclear whether or not the employees and other customers were in on the joke, but judging by the shocked looks on their faces, I would assume not. [Crushable]
