I haven’t been religiously watching
HBO’s Showtime’s “Masters Of Sex” — which is about sex researchers Dr. William Masters and Virginia Johnson — but any show that would inspire a Halloween costume that involves carrying around a giant dildo vibrator is fine by me! Get the deets on how to dress up as Lizzy Caplan’s character after the jump! Keep reading »
On a recent episode of Conan O’Brien, “Masters of Sex” star Lizzy Caplan explained that while she didn’t grow up in a “naked house,” her parents had one super sexy book that she used to reference all the time. “We had an X-Rated cook book that was a gag gift from my parents’ wedding I think. My friends and I would take it into my room and look at it and it was really…an X-Rated cook book,” she revealed.
And what is an X-Rated cookbook, you ask? Good question. Conan was wondering the same thing as us. Luckily Lizzy elaborated:
“For example, you could make a tart that looked like a breast. Just use a raspberry as a nipple. That was one of the things in the cookbook. One of the things that stands out the most to me though, and can I still picture it when I close my eyes, is well, uh, the meatloaf that looked like a huge dick.”
In honor of Lizzy’s favorite X-Rated cook book, we hunted down the most horrifying, edible dicks that Pinterest et al has to offer. Click on the gallery to see for yourself! [ONTD]
Dear Hollywood: USE LIZZY CAPLAN MORE. She’s only, you know, PERFECT, and I just cannot fathom how she hasn’t been put to better use. What is it about her that just seems to go straight to DVD?! With “Mean Girls,” “Cloverfield,” “True Blood,” “Party Down,” and “New Girl” all under her supporting-actress and/or regular guest appearance belt, it’s time for Lizzy to blow up big time, and hopefully Showtime’s new original series “Masters of Sex” will be just the right vehicle. Lizzy Caplan, Michael Sheen, the ’60s, and all things sex? Count me in. Lizzy appeared on Conan this week to discuss her new show and other relevant topics, including masturbation, how boring sex scenes are, and her parents’ X-rated cookbook. Another (longer!) clip, after the jump! [Jezebel]

I feel like romantic comedies are always about a woman who’s trying to get hitched, and a guy who’s resisting (except for, I guess, “Runaway Bride”). So I’m really excited for the new Lizzy Caplan movie, “Save the Date,” where — gasp! — she plays a woman who turns down her boyfriend’s proposal. Caplan was absolutely breathtaking in the pretty-much-straight-to-video “Bachelorette,” and we’re really excited to see her helm a film here. Plus, her boyfriend is played by Christina Hendricks’ real life boo, who we hear is a pretty funny guy. [NYMag.com]
“With ‘Bachelorette,’ I thought of these really thin, beautiful women, who if you saw walking down the street you’d think, ‘These girls have their lives together and it makes me feel bad about myself.’ I wanted to examine how they are gluttonous through drug addiction, materialism, sexual voraciousness, eating disorders — literally take, take, take, consume, consume, consume. Then there is their friend, Becky, who is moving into adulthood. She’s the one who appears to be the gluttonous one, who you might point at and say she has a problem because she’s overweight. You might feel better about yourself and move on. But she’s the one who’s getting out of the prison that these characters have created for themselves. … I couldn’t for the life of me think of one good moniker for these women and who they are that wasn’t punitive. You know what I mean, like ‘Sluts’ or ‘Bitches,’ and who would see a movie called that? All we’ve got is this feminized version of this male idea, that’s, by the way, a great thing if you’re a man. If you’re not married and you’re a straight guy, the world is your fuckin’ oyster, but if you’re single and you’re a woman and you’ve got something going for you, it’s just so sad you’re not married yet. It doesn’t make any sense to me. But what do I know? I’m sad and alone.”
Watching “Bachelorette” on Video On Demand is on my to-do list this evening, so I was interested to read this Q&A with the writer/director Leslye Headland. “Bachelorette,” as you’ve probably heard, is about four high school friends who reunite for one of their weddings — and the other three freak the fuck out because they’re still single and childless. And snorting loads of cocaine, apparently. As someone who is gearing up for her 10-year high school reunion and is also “sad and alone” according to societal standards, I have to say it’s a topic of interest! The subject of the movie, I mean.

So this movie “Bachelorette” just came out, and I’m so ambivalent as to whether or not I should see it. On one hand, I love (in no manner of order other than how they are credited on iMDB) Lizzy Caplan, Isla Fisher, Kirsten Dunst, James Marsden, Adam Scott, and Rebel Wilson. On the other, I heard that the movie itself is an abomination. On the other, other hand, I really want to see it, but will I regret wasting 91 minutes of my life? Therein lies the conundrum.
All internal battles aside, the stars looked just lovely on the red carpet at the premiere over the weekend. Winona and I agree that Kirsten slayed this Gaultier trench-inspired dress, which could have been a disaster on the wrong girl; Lizzy looked so good from the waist up that I’ll let her awkward-length slip slide; Isla was refined perfection in red lace Reem Acra. But I’m really feeling their individual approaches to makeup for the night — the three managed to look gorgeous and true to their own sensibilities without overshadowing one another. I think this calls for a special three-way edition, no? Keep reading »
Crucial life question: why isn’t Lizzy Caplan more famous? There are sooooo many reasons to love her, starting with Janis Ian, of course. I am not necessarily a fan of this pirate wench-y outfit she wore to the premiere of “The Campaign,” but I do strongly agree with the fantastic bob she’s rocking. I can’t wait to see her in “Bachelorette,” which premiered at Sundance, with Kirsten Dunst and Isla Fisher — I have very high hopes. Oh, and did you know that Lizzy has been dating Matthew Perry since 2006?! I did not. You learn something new (and vital) every day.
Photobombs are so much more fun when they involve celebrities, especially when famous folks are on both ends of the explosion. Adam Scott and Lizzy Caplan got Jon Heder and Will Forte good at the “Eastbound & Down” premiere party. Bonus to Adam for flipping the bird while bombing. That’s a move right there.

Kirsten Dunst, Lizzy Caplan and Rebel Wilson star in the upcoming dark (very dark!) comedy “Bachelorette,” and this week the three made the rounds at the Sundance Film Festival promoting the film. We are so excited to see this movie — especially since catching Rebel Wilson’s hilarious turn as one half of a creepy brother/sister roommate duo in “Bridesmaids.” In “Bachelorette,” Wilson plays a woman getting married whose three bridesmaids — played by Dunst, Caplan and Isla Fisher — plot against her. Thankfully, it seems that Wilson and her co-stars get along much better off screen. We love the casual looks they’re sporting at Sundance, and thought we’d try stealing their looks. Check out what we found after the jump.
