Well, call me crazy, but I think Ryan Gosling looks pretty goddamn hot all bloodied and bruised and swollen in the just released poster for his upcoming film “Only God Forgives.” I don’t know who’s to blame, but someone hand me an ice pack and I’ll be his nurse, mmkay?
Far be it from me to ever speak ill of Tina Fey. Or Paul Rudd. And definitely not Tina Fey and Paul Rudd (and Wallace Shawn!). But I just have to be honest: the plot of “Admission” looks really stupid. Fey plays an admissions counselor at Princeton and Rudd plays a sensitive single dad who runs a high school for troubled kids … and they fall in love … but Rudd just so happens to have a student he thinks is a child Fey gave up for adoption many years ago. Huh? This sounds as convoluted as an episode of “Gossip Girl.” But whatever. I will see it. Tina Fey and Paul Rudd!
Trash the “Twilight” franchise all you want, but they know how to build some sexual tension. Four movies in, Bella and Edward finally had sex — rough sex, actually! — and I can’t be the only one who got a little turned on. Here’s comedienne Julie Klausner hosting a “Twilight” horniness focus group to get to the bottom of just how sexy “Breaking Dawn, Part Two” will be. She’s a vampire now you guys. They’re body temperature is the same. [NYMag.com]

Two movies followed, with Renee Zellweger as our quirky protagonist, and single 30-something women everywhere found a fumbling heroine they could finally relate too. It was in Bridget’s constantly adorable flaws — namely her fixation on her body image, awkward approach to dating and penchant for wallowing in her misery (who can forget her onscreen rendition of “All By Myself”?) that we wach saw a bit of ourselves. We are all Bridget Jones to some degree — whether that makes us uncomfortable or not. Here are a few examples…
You might think you have the greatest pet in the world, but that’s probably because you don’t watch much TV. Instead of a cat that secretly hates you, fictional pets can be dragons or loyal household animals who stick by your side as you step out into the great unknown, rather than eating the contents of your bathroom trashcan the second you’re out the door. We’ve compiled a list of the 10 coolest pets in fiction. Just don’t tell your real pet — they might get jealous that they’re not as awesome as these animal pals, and, if you own a cat, try to kill you in your sleep.
1. Grey Wind, “Game Of Thrones.” Robb of House Stark, the newly crowned King of the North, is feared not only for his prowess in battle and military strategy, but because of his awesome pet: a viciously loyal direwolf. Grey Wind has no qualms about chomping off a finger or three or even scaring the bejeezus out of the Kingslayer, Jamie Lannister. Where do we sign up to get one of these wolves? Read more…
