If you get really desperate, just resort to nail scissors.” [Times Online]

In next year’s movie The Ghost of Girlfriends Past, McConaughey will be visited by ex-girlfriends, one played by Jennifer Garner, and hopefully learn something, kind of like Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, except for the fact that Scrooge didn’t sleep with the Ghost of Christmas Past. [Reuters]
  • Here’s a novel idea: Give men free sex in exchange for filming it—the only stipulation is that he can’t try to hide his face.

The video is then available on subscription website (for those into semi-reality porn), and the guy gets a DVD to remember it all. [Sunday Herald (Scotland)]
