This weekend, the world will get to see Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake’s butt in “Friends With Benefits.” But as we’ve shared with you before, there were actually three projects angling to grab this movie’s coveted title. The first became Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman‘s “No Strings Attached.” And the third, a television show that now shares the name “Friends with Benefits,” begins airing in two weeks on NBC.
So, of these three projects’ leading men—who would we shun, shag, and marry? Find out after the jump. Keep reading »
Today, I am in a “Harry Potter” hangover. For weeks, there was so much buildup. And while the movie was wonderful, now it’s just … over. So thank goodness that a new pop culture phenomenon begins afresh tonight. Finally, “Degrassi” is back! Now, I have been through my fair share of guilty pleasure TV shows over the years, but “DegrassI: The Next Generation” has been one of the most enduring. For the past 11 seasons, I’ve watched Spinner and Jimmy give way to Emma and Manny, give way to Mia and Peter, give way to Holly J and Declan. The best part of this Canadian teen soap (based on the “Degrassi” series of the ’80s) is watching the young characters you don’t care too much about blossom into almost-adults. For example, Sav has gotten so hot and Claire has become such a fashion plate! And because the show airs telenovela style—there’s a new episode every night—there is absolutely no waiting to see how their new lives evolve.
But I promise there are other things I’m looking forward to this week—like the series premiere of “Entourage” and a new album from They Might Be Giants. After the jump, a rundown of this week’s television, movies, music, and more. Keep reading »
A restricted clip/trailer for “Friends With Benefits”
(above, opening July 22) has me curious about something — have you ever f**ked and chewed gum at the same time? Excuse my French — Justin Timberlake
and Mila Kunis
drop the f-bomb a lot in the trailer above, so I’m just getting into the spirit. Anyway, they also are seen doin’ the nasty while both smacking on gum. I can only imagine that this is going to be some sort of minor plot point in the film, as I don’t know of anyone that actually thinks it’s a good idea to chew gum and hump at the same time. Am I crazy? Keep reading »
“I was caught [having sex] one time. My mom wasn’t cool about it. I was too young to be in bed with a girl, so she was upset.”
—Justin Timberlake divulges in the new issue of Elle that he once got caught in the act by his mom. This has led many to speculate on when this happened and which girl he was doing the deed with. Was it Britney Spears? Or was it Fergie, who he dated when he was 16? I’m guessing the latter, as he says in the quote he was “too young.” Also, Fergie was 23 at the time. Scandal! [People, NY Post]
After the jump, Justin reveals that he still worries about his mom seeing too much. Keep reading »
