Actors Daniel Craig, Benicio del Toro, Steve Carell, Seth Meyers and Dulé Hill appear in the White House’s new anti-sexual assault PSA, which Vice President Joe Biden unveiled yesterday at a press conference touting the new guidelines for college campuses to help curb sexual assaults. Biden gave a passionate speech at the event, not only reiterating that “no man has a right ever to raise his hand to a women period,” but also stressing that victims should not be “re-assaulted” by victim-blaming questions during campus investigations. “We almost always ask the wrong questions when it comes to sexual assault,” Biden said. “We continue to ask questions like ‘What were you wearing? What did you say? What did you?’” It’s always heartening to see men advocating and standing up for women, and I wish more would follow suit. Check out the minute-long PSA above. [ABC News]
My excitement over getting to interview the cast of “Anchorman 2″ — which opens in theaters today — was tempered by a few pestering thoughts in the back of my brain. What if they hate me? What if they don’t think I’m funny? Maybe I should be very serious. You know, not even try to make them laugh. Or, if it comes down to it, I’ll just ask them about the new Beyonce record, because who doesn’t want to talk about that. Obviously, I had a rare case of nerves. Which is probably how I ended up telling Paul Rudd and Steve Carell, who play Brian Fantana and Brick Tamland in the film, all about how I dirty-talk to my dog. Watch our interview above, and, in addition to seeing the “this chick is weird” look come over their faces, find out what Brian and Brick have been up to since the last time we saw the best news team in the world. Spoiler alert: Fantana is now the Terry Richardson of cat photographers and Brick is ready for romance!
I haven’t been a loyal watcher of “The Office” in a few seasons, but that didn’t stop me from totally tearing up while watching this tribute to Michael Scott from last night’s episode. My high school choir (I was not a member) sang “Seasons of Love” from “Rent” at my high school graduation and, damn, does that tune tug at the heartstrings (even when the lyrics are ridiculously altered). Next week is Steve Carell’s last episode — will you be watching? Keep reading »
Not enough time with our major girl crush, Tina Fey
, but pretty much the funniest minute I’ve ever experienced. Keep reading »
“I want to state for my husband’s sake that it was a comedy idea, not an erotic idea. I did pitch: Wouldn’t it be funny if the kiss was as long as the credit sequence? It was fun because we’re both so polite and not only are we both married, we know each other’s spouses. It was the world’s longest closed-mouth kiss. It was like a tongue-less turtle mouth.”
