What if tabloids snarked on men’s bodies–like Quentin Tarantino, Gerard Depardieu, Rob Kardashian and Gerard Butler, featured here–the way they constantly snark on women? Instead of mag covers deriding “stars without makeup” or telling us who has the best and worst “beach bodies,” we might see covers on the most egregious beer bellies in Hollywood or features on celebs with encroaching male pattern baldness. That day will likely never come, which, okay, fine. I’m not saying I’d prefer magazines to rip men’s bodies apart — I’d just like to show you how absolutely inured we are to a culture that dissects women’s bodies like they’re a bunch of frogs on a lab table. Think about how weird it is that these magazines are targeted at women, and women are more or less the sole objects of these magazine’s bodily criticism and speculation. Now that’s what I call a vicious cycle.

This faux magazine cover will likely make you laugh, because men’s forms just aren’t talked about this way, but women are regularly reduced to their body parts in the abstract. But hopefully it’ll also give you pause the next time you see a cover deriding Tori Spelling’s cellulite. (Click here to see larger image.)

Gerard Depardieu Parodies His Peeing Incident

Gerard Depardieu is apparently not too embarrassed by the incident last month whereby he peed himself on an airplane from Paris to Dublin when a flight attendant told him he couldn’t use the bathroom. As any self-respecting actor would do, he has gone the route of self parody, making this clip for French television. In the spoof, he appears as Obelix, the French cartoon character who wears a funny metal hat with braids attached, eats wild boar, and is almost as well know as Pepé Le Pew. Apparently, Gerard will be starring in a live-action Obelix movie that will come out next year. Anyone speak French and feel like translating? I can almost hear Anderson Cooper laughing already.

Anderson Cooper Cracks Up On Air Over Gerard Depardieu’s Urination Incident

This video combines four of my favorite things: silver fox Anderson Cooper, awesomely bad puns, the mocking of a celebrity who pissed themselves on a plane, and a newscaster cracking up on air. Last night, during a segment called “RidicuList,” Anderson just couldn’t contain his laughter after spouting out a long list of puns about Gerard Depardieu, who apparently peed all over himself on a plane from Paris to Dublin when a flight attendant told him he couldn’t get up to use the bathroom. “So Depardieu created his own little jet stream,” said Anderson, reading the script. “Or as the French say ‘oui oui.’ [Other passengers] saw a actual thespian actually thes peein’ … They should thank their lucky stars it wasn’t Depar-two.” Anderson then scrunched his face and dissolved into hysterics. “Sorry, this has actually never happened to me. You see this sort of thing on YouTube and you don’t think this kind of thing will happen to you.” No worries, Anderson, we like! [Hollywood Reporter] Keep reading »

Quotable: Juliette Binoche Thinks Gerard Depardieu Has Man Problems

“I think something, probably some masculine part, is hurt somewhere.”

–Actress Juliette Binoche on a nasty comment fellow actor Gerard Depardieu made about her and her new film “Certified Copy.” Depardieu was quoted as saying, “Please can you explain to me what the secret of this actress is meant to be? […] She has nothing. Absolutely nothing.” Harsh, Gerard. [Gather.com] Keep reading »
