Prolific actor Tony Curtis, father of Jamie Lee Curtis, passed away yesterday at the age of 85 from cardiac arrest. In honor of him, here’s a little clip from “Some Like It Hot,” which he starred in with Jack Lemmon and Marilyn Monroe. Tony plays “Josephine” a struggling musician who dresses as a woman to escape some gangsters. When he meets Marilyn’s character, “Sugar,” he woos her disguised as an oil heir named “Junior.” The movie has some serious cross-dressing and comedic madness. I suggest a screening this weekend to pay tribute to him. [Newser] Keep reading »

With the high concentration of d-bags in Hollywood, few would have suspected Mel Gibson would be to whom we attribute the quote “You should just smile and blow me because I deserve it!” Mel’s foul, sexist language to describe his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva and his racist, rape-y declarations shocked all of us. But it turns out Mel might have left some clues to how he views women. Piper Weiss at Yahoo Shine has examined 10 years of Mel Gibson’s on-set pranks and there are some disturbing trends: he likes to terrify and/or humiliate his female co-stars and directors.

We’re so ready for the weekend, especially because today is Friday the 13th, and you never know what’s gonna happen: You might end up inside Jamie Lee Curtis’ body. But we hope you’ll come say “hi” in the Forums no matter what. Also, don’t forget that Father’s Day is Sunday. Dads need love, too.
Last week we wrote about Jamie Lee Curtis strippin’ down for the cover of AARP. On Saturday Night Live this weekend, Kristen Wiig spoofed the actress doing an ad for Activia. Activia is that yogurt that’s all the rage cause it makes your bowels regular or something (side note: my soon-to-be-sister-in-law Lauren says that getting regular ol’ live culture yogurt from Whole Foods does the same thing, only better). Anyway, the skit was hysterical, not just because it mocked the ridiculousness of a yogurt that makes your insides rumbly, but also because it pokes fun at Jamie Lee Curtis’ whole “I’m 50, I’m fabulous, I’m naked, I just don’t give a &%$*”-schpiel, which, while probably totally genuine, is getting a little silly and predictable. So what happens when a hyped up Jamie inhales over a dozen Activia yogurts in one day? Check the clip above. Keep reading »
Jamie Lee Curtis, 50, just graced the cover of AARP magazine wearing nothing but water. And now sheâ€™s urging people to go au natural themselves and grow old gracefully. Sheâ€™s speaking up about her own plastic surgeries, admitting to first going under the knife at 35 because a photographer made a snide remark about her â€œpuffyâ€ eyes. Sheâ€™s had numerous surgeries since, saying: â€œI did it all. But, you know what, it didnâ€™t work. The fraud is it doesnâ€™t work…there are complications, and I got them all.â€ While Jamie Lee hasnâ€™t specified her problems with the operations, weâ€™re pretty sure one of the side effects is being stuck in a waiting room with Joan Rivers.
