Watch Conan Give Himself “American Hustle” Hair

Nice Hair, Conan

Am I the only who didn’t love “American Hustle”? [Nope! Oveeeeeraaaaaated. -- Amelia] Thankfully, Conan O’Brien gave me a reason to like the movie when he showed us his own take on its opening scene at the MTV Movie Awards. Christian Bale’s meticulous hairstyling routine in the film is funny and all, but Conan’s is a home run. [Laughing Squid]

 

 

You’ll Never Guess Martha Stewart’s Celebrity Crush

Martha Stewart's Celebrity Crush

“I have lots of crushes, I love having crushes. But lately I think it’s Christian Bale. I just watched ‘American Psycho,’ where he looks really good. And then I watched his new movie, ‘American Hustle,’ where he looks really bad. He had to get a potbelly for ‘American Hustle,’ so that would have been a good time for him to eat at my house … I don’t think eating is exactly what I want to do with Christian Bale.”

– Martha Stewart revealed her celeb crush during a recent appearance on “Today,” and apparently the Queen of Domesticity wants to do dirty things with Patrick Bateman himself! Didn’t see that one coming, did you? Martha is slowly becoming America’s bawdy great aunt, and I am so into it. [Huffington Post]

10 Celeb Couples That Might Have Been

Drew Barrymore just got married for the third time — to art dealer Will Kopelman — and has a long dating history in Hollywood. But I was totally surprised to learn she once went on a date with Christian Bale (pre-”Dark Knight” and well-known rage issues). ”We went to see some bloody awful horror film, and that was the end of it,” Bale told GQ Australia. [Us Weekly]

I’m kind of bummed things didn’t go further with these two. Going out with Bale again could have been a real “Sliding Doors” moment for them both; would she have gone through her flower child/boob-flashing phase if she had fallen in love with him? Run around with Courtney Love? Would his career have taken a backseat to hers, like that of so many of her previous boyfriends? Maybe getting turned down by Drew is what set Bale on the path towards becoming Batman!

This got me thinking about other celeb couples that might have been. Here are nine other pairs that are rumored to have gone out once or twice, but never made it official. Let’s imagine what might have been if they had…

  • Christian Bale’s ex-assistant and publicist Harrison Cheung has published a tell-all book about the actor filled with all sorts of wack information, like how Bale allegedly once suggested they kill a fan who was bothering him at his home. “A screwdriver thrust thru the eyeball into the brain prevents any screaming,” the actor wrote his assistant in a fax. Cheung also wrote, “It only took me five years of therapy to get past my Bale years. My therapist would describe my condition as post-traumatic stress disorder.” Fun times. [Huffington Post]

Oscar Theory #11: Whoever Wins The BAFTA Gets The Oscar

When it comes to the acting awards at the year’s Oscars, it looks things could get very British. No, not because the world has gone mad over Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding. Because Brit Colin Firth looks like an almost shoe-in to win Best Actor for his performance in “The King’s Speech,” while his fellow countryman Christian Bale—who in all honesty, I didn’t realize was British until just a few weeks ago—is the favorite to win Best Supporting Actor. While we were too busy with the Super Bowl to watch the BAFTA Awards—that’s the British Academy of Film and Television Arts—maybe we should have been paying more attention. Back in 2000, the British award show moved to February so that it would it would precede the Oscars. Ever since, it has become like looking in a crystal ball. Last year, 12 of the 18 major BAFTA winners went on to win Oscars. [EW]

The predictive powers of the BAFTAs get even more impressive when you limit it to the top six categories—Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Supporting Actress. I crunched the numbers and, over the past few years, 80 percent of the winners have overlapped. After the jump, take a look at the BAFTA effect played out in the past few years, and what it could mean for this year’s Oscar hopefuls. Keep reading »

The 2011 SAG Awards: The 7 Most Surprising Moments

The Screen Actors Guild Awards are best known for being, well, the awards show that happens between the Golden Globes and the Oscars. But, it has a good reputation for being a predictor of who will win at the latter, which is why we watch even though awards season can get overwhelming. Luckily, last night’s show brought some highly amusing moments. After the jump, the ones that surprised us most.

Christian Bale Really Wanted To Do His Own Stunts In “The Fighter”

“I just got up there and I went, ‘I’m jumping’ … I’ve jumped from three-story buildings in my own life after bad parties and stuff. The insurance came around … and they were just begging me not to.”

Christian Bale says he was annoyed that he wasn’t allowed to do his own stunts in “The Fighter” because of insurance concerns. He does have a point. I mean, he did lose an insane amount of weight to play aging boxer/crackhead Dicky Eklund, which isn’t the healthiest thing ever. On the other hand, uh, when did he jump out of a third floor window?

Shun, Shag, Or Marry: Angry Actors Edition

A lot of women are attracted to powerful jerks, perhaps in hopes that they’ll be mean to everyone but them. But there’s a thin line between anger issues and outright abuse. And while some men take it out on the paparazzi and cops, others take it out on their wives and family. It’s about time these men know we won’t stand for it, which is why we will objectify them with a little game we like to call Shun, Shag, or Marry: Angry Actors Edition. Keep reading »
