Remind me again why cardboard cutouts of celebrities and film characters exist and are available for purchase? Oh, wait, nevermind, somebody else beat you to it, and it’s whoever made it their life’s mission to chronicle the mundane daily activities of Severus Snape. Aside from teaching Potions, Professor Snape also enjoys sulking on Valentine’s Day, going trick or treating, playing hide and seek, running on the treadmill, and basking in the great outdoors. He even wakes up in strange locations covered in glitter and awash in unidentified pills, like me on Tuesday Saturday morning! He’s just like one of us! Except better, being that he is the Half Blood Prince and all. [Snape Does Things]

love potions consent

“Love potions do not equal consent. Coercion through magic is illegal. Combined with the use of love potions it is rape.”

Oh, if only those Steubenville rapists could have gotten reported to the Ministry Of Magic. Or should I say those Lord Voldemorts. [The Mary Sue]

Embarrassingly enough, I was a very serious “Harry Potter” fan back in the day, cloak and wand at the book releases and all. (I probably shouldn’t be outing myself on the Internet, but there it is.) I always thought Hermione was just the coolest, so my adoration of Emma Watson is really just a natural progression of that love. With big-name fashion campaigns and more than a few blockbusters under her belt, the 22-year-old actress went from being known as a bossy, bookish voice of reason to the sylphlike, short-haired vixen she is today. On the cover of T Magazine’s September issue, Emma looks every bit the young, serious ingénue, and she wears it especially well with a smattering of freckles and one sick cat-eye. [T Magazine]

Question: Is this a costume you can buy a the Horse Costume Store? I’m assuming there’s a horse costume store, of course. Otherwise, kudos to the owners of these horses for creating such a wonderful, affecting Harry-alike. Also, is there some magic Venn Diagram showing how Horse Girls and Harry Potter fans overlap? I’d like to see that. Either way, click to see a couple more Potter-some horses. Keep reading »

  • Daniel Radcliffe used to be drunk was filming “Harry Potter” scenes. In the British celeb mag Heat, the sober alcoholic confessed that “I can point to many scenes where I’m just gone. Dead behind the eyes.” Daniel also says he drank “nightly” and was very adept at hiding it. He’s so lucky he got control of his addictions at such a young age. [People]

“This is way too much information, but I don’t like girls with nothing down there either. It freaks me out. You have to have something, otherwise it’s fucking creepy.”

Daniel Radcliffe tells Heat magazine that he does not like a bald beaver. Luckily my bald beaver does not like Daniel Radcliffe, but I am always happy to hear about the pubic hair preferences of (guys who played) child wizards. Radcliffe, of course, bared his ample thatch (I just love that word) of pubic fuzz when he appeared nude in the play “Equus.” [Dlisted]

The 5 Most Depraved Sex Scenes Implied By “Harry Potter”

The Harry Potter series has sold billions of dollars worth of books, movie tickets and DVDs because it’s one of those rare series that children can enjoy but won’t make adults want to gouge out their eyes.

Author J.K. Rowling had a way of throwing a bone to the grown-ups here and there by slipping in sly little adult references along the way. It’s usually done in subtext (like the elderly wizard Dumbledore’s homosexual relationship with the male wizard Grindelwald), but sometimes it’s right there in the open for anyone perceptive enough to get it.

And sometimes, that s**t gets nasty. Read more… Keep reading »

Emma Watson Is The Latest Celeb Turned Designer

Now that the “Harry Potter” kids no longer have a bazillion dollar franchise to support, Emma Watson has got some free time, and it seems she’s opted to pick up some work as a fashion designer. No longer content to merely serve as a model/muse for Burberry, Watson is said to be launching her own line, and has been taking cutting, sewing and design classes, presumably at Brown University’s sister school, RISD. According to an unnamed source, “Emma wants to challenge herself creatively. She’s obsessed with art at the moment She’s already designed a line of T-shirts and wants to expand her skills to create bespoke evening wear.” So she’ll join Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Victoria Beckham, Jennifer Lopez, Gwen Stefani, Lauren Conrad, Heidi Montag and Avril Lavigne, among others, as model/actress/muse/designer. Phew. That’s a long resume. [ONTD] Keep reading »

Ralph Fiennes Wore Garter Belts Under His Lord Voldemort Costume

“It was an irritating costume to wear. It was too long and, sometimes, I would trip over it. The gusset of the tights kept dropping between my thighs, and this made it very hard to walk with any kind of dignity … Sometimes, when the stunt team got too macho, I would tease them with my inner thigh.”

—Ralph Fiennes, who played Lord Voldemort in “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2,” explains why he began wearing a garter belt underneath his menacing robes. Somehow, this information makes Voldemort seem much less scary. Also, Ralph looks so different without a nose! It’s easy to forget that was him under all that movie makeup. [ONTD] Keep reading »
