Pineapple Express Does the Oscars: Seth Rogen, James Franco and Judd Apatow

Best Ad During the Oscars: Tom Cruise and Jimmy Kimmel

I don't know how I noticed this, but the house in this ad for Jimmy Kimmel Live is the same one Charlize Theron and Jason Bateman lived in in Hancock (below).

Tom Cruise should give up the drama (hello Valkyrie) and just focus on comedy for a while.

Jennifer Aniston Chickens Out At The Oscars

Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer didn't walk the red carpet at the Oscars and thus avoided a run-in with Brangelina.

I think I hear some tabloid editors sobbing into their pillows.

But according to US Weekly, when Jen presented the awards for animation, she smiled directly at her ex-husband Brad Pitt and that Brad and Angelina Jolie had huge smiles on their faces the whole time.

Give those people an award for acting!

Ben Stiller as Joaquin Phoenix = Genius!

One of the best moments of the night was Ben Stiller pretending to be Joaquin Phoenix (as he was on Letterman). Hilarious.

Best line of the night, from Natalie Portman: "You look like you work at a Hassidic meth lab."

Is Angelina Trying to Cover Up Her Tummy?

Angelina Jolie wore a dress to the Oscars tonight that had a little gathering across the tummy and a big clump of fabric in the front to distract from a possible baby bump. Just sayin'.

Funny People Trailer: I Can't Wait to See This Film

Adam Sandler
, Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Jason Schwartzman and Eric Bana! What's not to like? Eric is finally back in a comedy—yay! And they make fun of him being an Aussie! Yay!!!

Kate Winslet Wants to Pass Her Nude Crown to Susan Sarandon

Kate Winslet was asked at the Oscars post-win press conference who she'd like to pass her nude scene crown to and she said Susan Sarandon.

Seriously, though, how cool is it that she won? She seems like such a real person and was genuinely excited. Love her.

Marisa Tomei Takes Her Origami Seriously

Sunday, February 22, 2009

Marisa Tomei wins the Oscar for Best Napkin Turned into a Dress Adaptation.

Heath Ledger Wins The Oscar For Best Supporting Actor

Heath Ledger won the Academy Award tonight for his portrayal of the Joker in The Dark Knight.

His mum, dad and sister accepted the award on his daughter Matilda's behalf.

Like me and countless others, Angelina Jolie had tears in her eyes.

Mickey Rourke Loves Eric Roberts

Mickey Rourke won Best Actor at the Independent Spirit Awards tonight and dedicated part of his speech to finding a job for his pal Eric Roberts. In an expletive-laden, rambling six-minute speech, which included a dedication to his recently deceased dog, Loki, he made a request for work for his friend, Eric (who co-starred with Mickey in The Pope of Greenwich Village in 1984).

Mickey said Julia Roberts' brother was "probably the best actor I have ever worked with. I don't know why in the last 15 years, ain't nobody give him the chance to show his shit again."

"Whatever he did 15 or 20 years ago, he deserves a second chance," Mickey said, to laughs and a shout-out from Eric, who was in the audience. Mickey (who wore a pendant with Loki's picture) then went on to forget the name of his Wrestler co-star Marisa Tomei, which was probably a relief to her.

Cute Pic of the Day: Meerkat Madness

Saturday, February 21, 2009

How cute are these guys?

Four-week-old Zanzibar and Nairobi are the first meerkat pups to be born in nine years at the Taronga Zoo in Sydney, Australia.

Hugh Jackman's Oscar Dig at David Letterman

This clip of Hugh Jackman rehearsing for the Oscars isn't the most scintillating viewing (except for his amazing arms), until he disses David Letterman. "I could be the guy onstage that's up there going Oprah/Uma, Uma/Oprah." Oh no, he didn't!

I may be biased but I think Hugh is going to be awesome on Sunday night. After all, he's better looking than Whoopi Goldberg, sexier than Ellen DeGeneres, a better singer than Billy Crystal, a better dancer than Steve Martin, with more energy than Jon Stewart...what's not to like?

TMZ Crosses Line With Rihanna Picture

Friday, February 20, 2009

TMZ has somehow managed to get its hands on a picture of Rihanna that shows her face bruised and swollen following her alleged altercation with Chris Brown.

I am not going to post the picture here because I think that TMZ totally crossed the line. (Outlets like have chosen not the publish the pic either.)

First of all TMZ probably paid someone quite a bit of money to smuggle the pic out of the police station (the LAPD is looking for the culprit), secondly it is a total invasion of Rihanna's privacy (she canceled shows and hasn't been out in public because she doesn't want people to see her this way) and thirdly, it makes it almost impossible for Chris Brown to have a fair trial, not matter what the charges are.

What happened to innocent before being found guilty? I am not on Chris Brown's side, and don't condone domestic violence, but I think he is being tried by the court of public opinion.

I hope Rihanna and Chris Brown sue TMZ.

Adriana Lima as Amy Winehouse

Thursday, February 19, 2009

Supermodel Adriana Lima poses as Amy Winehouse in the new issue of U.K. magazine Love.

When asked what she loves about the troubled singer, Adriana said: "I love that she has real talent, not manufactured soulless music."

And let's just ignore the eating disorder and the drug addiction, shall we?

If you ask me this homage feels a little 2007.

Kate Winslet Doesn't Want to Get Naked Anymore

She's stripped off in about 10 of her films, but Kate Winslet told Time magazine this week that she doesn't want to strip for movie roles anymore.

"I think I won't do it again: a) I can't keep getting away with it, and b) I don't want to become 'that actress who always gets her kit off.'"

Somehow I think this is the kind of comment that is going to come back and bite Kate on her (bare) ass.

And does this mean that she won't strip for racy photo shoots in magazines like Vanity Fair either?

Last question: How long till she uses the old "the nudity was essential to the character's story" line?

Tom Jones to Robbie Williams: Don't Take It All So Seriously

Now officially a silver fox (since he's given up dyeing his hair), Tom Jones has revealed that a lot of today's biggest music stars turn to him for advice. No surprise there, really, since he's been around for about a hundred years.

“They tell me I am an inspiration because I still love doing my job so much and it gives them hope that they won’t burn out," he said in an interview with The Sun newspaper.

“I was talking to Robbie Williams on New Year’s Eve and told him I was about to start a massive tour. He said, ‘How do you do it?’ and I told him that you have to love it," Tom said.

“Robbie is a great showman when he is on stage. He just needs to learn not to worry about it all so much.”

So true. The "Sex Bomb" singer should put all of his wise words into a book.

I can see it now: The Tao of Tom Jones.

Danny Gokey Is Worried People Are Sick of Hearing About His Dead Wife

American Idol finalist Danny Gokey confessed today that he's concerned people might get tired of hearing about his recently deceased wife, Sophia.

Ya think?
It's all we've heard about on the show each week.

"It's only been seven months since she passed," Danny said. "It's not that I throw it in people's faces but I get asked about it all the time. ... I apologize to everybody if it feels like it's shoved down their face, but it's so fresh in my mind."

That's OK, Danny. Alexis Grace apparently has a dad who needs a heart transplant, so it's only a matter of time till your back story gets pushed to the side.

Oh, and Danny, you might want to stop singing such earnest songs like "Hero" (yes, I know you're a church music director...) and start working on punching up your personality, cause right now you're sadly lacking in what Simon Cowell likes to call the X Factor.

Man Drives 137 mph in a 1993 Honda Civic!

Are you kidding me? Police in New York state caught a guy doing 137 miles per hour in a 1993 Honda Civic.


The 21-year-old was pulled over doing more than twice the 65 mph speed limit on the New Jersey border and ticketed for speeding, reckless driving and having vehicle windows with illegal tint.

Top Gear should try to get hold of this car for a test drive around their track as it sounds like a scientific miracle.

Question Of The Day: Who Looks More Fake?

My money's on Pamela Anderson.

Paris Hilton + Gun = Scary Situation

Wednesday, February 18, 2009

This is the scariest thing I have seen in ages. Paris Hilton toting a shotgun.

She was packing heat for an episode of her U.K. reality show Paris Hilton's British Best Friend.

Is she campaigning to be the NRA's new poster child?

Arrivederci! Fabio Is Out Of Top Chef

Bummer. Fabio Viviani is going home tonight on Top Chef. William Shatner is probably happy to have his personal chef back. Maybe Fabio can put the Shat on a diet...

That leaves Stefan Richter, Carla Hall and Hosea Rosenberg in next week's final. I hope Carla doesn't lose it because of nerves. And I think Hosea second guesses himself too much and lacks confidence. But I would hate to see Stefan win. He's way too smug and doesn't put his heart and soul into his cooking. And he's nasty. All the judges tonight were raving about Hosea's gumbo, but when Stefan tasted it he said "it sucked." That's just wrong and mean-spirited. And that kind of person shouldn't be rewarded. At all. Ever.

Lily Allen Looks Like Melanie Griffith

There are a lot of years between them—and a lot of surgical procedures—but Lily Allen and Melanie Griffith look really similar to me.

Buh-Bye Tatiana

Thank heavens! Take that! Tatiana Del Toro did not make the top 12 on Idol. Yay! I couldn't have dealt with that bullshit for another three months. Now she can go crawl back under that crazy rock she was hiding under.

Danny Gokey joins Michael Sarver and Alexis Grace in the Top 12, but he sang his song ("Hero") again tonight and I still found it pitchy in parts... I sincerely hope Danny stops talking about his dead wife now.

Michael Sarver In Idol's Top 12

Oil worker and father-of-two, Texan Michael Sarver has made it to American Idol's Top 12. I like his back story and enjoy his voice and chunky physique, but I don't believe his performance last night was good enough to put him through.

I honestly think his charm got him there. I like the way he says Sir and Ma'am, but that isn't going to keep him in the competition. He'd better step up the vocals and pick better songs.

Only 20,000 votes separated him from Anoop Desai. Maybe Anoop can come back with a wild card.

JD Fortune Dumped By INXS

JD Fortune, who was picked to be the front man of INXS after winning the reality TV show Rockstar:INXS, has been dumped by the band.

JD told Canada's Entertainment Tonight that the guys ditched him at Hong Kong airport and that he's now broke, homeless and living in his pickup truck. "They said, 'thank you very much' ... I found myself really alone because I had travelled with these guys for 23 months," he said.

In the interview JD admitted that he'd been on drugs, including cocaine, for two years (ya think that might have something to do with him being dumped???). He also said that he'd put what remaining money he had into his new album, The Death of a Motivational Speaker. You can hear some tracks at his myspace page.

Bay City Roller Les McKeown's Gay Secret

I guess my gaydar wasn't very strong when I was 13, cause I was kind of surprised to learn today that Les McKeown from the Bay City Rollers is gay. When I shared this news with my husband, he was like, "Duh." He then went on to give his reason: Les was a pretty boy, like Zac Efron. Flawless logic there, right?

In an interview with the Daily Mail Les revealed that his first gay experience was when he was 19 and was given Quaaludes and date-raped by another man (my money is on his then-manager Tam Paton—back in 2003 Les claimed he'd had to pull Tam off fellow Roller Pat McGlynn. Tam was arrested that year for abuse of young boys and later fined for drug dealing).

Since then, Les says he's been "a bit of a George Michael, meeting people, often strangers for sex." But he says he never did it in public toilets, claiming, "I'm not big on the unhygienic side of things." Um, I guess sticking your penis up some stranger's bum isn't unhygienic?

The sad thing about this is that he's been married to a woman named Peko for 25 years and has a 24-year-old son, Richard, and they didn't know about his secret life until he fessed up in a documentary. Peko and Richard watched an advance screening of the show, Rehab, and were angry but not shocked.

Peko's response: "I'm glad you've told me because always I'd wondered. I'd guessed but I was not sure. This is my husband—my family. We are cool."

Les spent a month in Malibu last year being treated at a rehab clinic for alcohol addiction. He says he hadn't planned on discussing his secret life on the documentary but now feels relieved that it's all out in the open. "I think it will give me the opportunity to blossom a little bit," he says.

If David Cassidy ever comes out, I will have to turn in my friend of Friends of Dorothy card.

Here's the promo for the show, featuring Les.

Ricky Gervais Writing For Hugh Jackman's Oscars Gig

This should be good. Ricky Gervais has revealed on his blog that Hugh Jackman asked him to write some jokes for him for the Oscars. That beats Ellen Degeneres any day! Based on what Ricky did at the Golden Globes, I can't wait for Sunday night.

Here's what Ricky said:
Hugh Jackman called me again for another brainstorming session about the Oscars. He called me out of the blue a couple of weeks ago and said he wanted me to write some gags for him. We've spoken a few times and we've come up with some funny ideas I think. It's difficult for me because it's so mainstream, and 90% of everything that comes into my head is unsuitable. He's great though. He seems to have no ego at all. Nice bloke. Hope he does well.

Michael Johns And Carly Smithson To Reunite On Idol

Tuesday, February 17, 2009

My two faves from last season's American Idol, Michael Johns and Carly Smithson are reuniting on tomorrow night's results show. Yay!

They were awesome together on Ellen last year, I hope they sing "Hold On, I'm Coming."

The pair were also mentors to the competitors during Hollywood Week, but their footage wound up on the cutting room floor.

Michael has an album coming out in April. Double yay!

Oh No! Stephen Fowler Blew It

Argh! I had such high hopes for Stephen Fowler on Idol.

Tonight he chose to sing Michael Jackson's "Rock With You" and totally messed it up.

Unlike Hollywood Week, he remembered the lyrics, but the song was all wrong for him. He sounds like Luther Vandross and should have chosen a different song.

To quote Simon Cowell, "You made a huge mistake here." Urgh. So disappointing.

Alexis Grace: American Idol's Dark Horse?

Alexis Grace brought it tonight on Idol with another Aretha Franklin song "Never Loved a Man" (she auditioned in Kentucky with "Dr. Feelgood") and the judges were crazily excited by her performance. I was a little surprised by that cause I thought it was good but not amazing.

Simon Cowell called her potentially the dark horse of the competition, while the others compared it to Kelly Clarkson's a-ha moment when she did an Aretha song.

Alexis had auditioned twice before for Idol. Third time's the charm.

Ricky Braddy Reminds Me Of Clay Aiken

I loved Ricky Braddy's voice on Idol tonight, but the judges were right that he lacked personality.

Still, he has a great voice, like Clay Aiken. But like Gayken, he's unlikely to win. And as we know that hasn't held Clay back...

Beth Ditto Naked...Again. And In Love

Sunday, February 15, 2009

In years gone by, The Gossip's Beth Ditto (featured here on the cover of British mag Love) would have been viewed as the ultimate Rubenesque beauty.

Wish I lived in years gone by.

Britney Spears As A Stepford Wife In "If You Seek Amy"

The Sun has pictures of Britney Spears from her new video for "If You Seek Amy" where she is dressed as some sort of demented Stepford Wife with a bad wig and has a daughter who is channeling her schoolgirl hairstyle from "Baby One More Time."

I didn't know that Stepford Wives had such prominent nipples...And wrist tattoos.

Move over, Dakota Fanning. Taylor Momsen Will Make A Better Vampire

Saturday, February 14, 2009

Dakota Fanning
is 14. Taylor Momsen is 15. There's only one year between them, but a world of difference.

There are rumors that Dakota is going to play an evil vampire named Jane in the Twilight sequel, New Moon, but based on the Goth chick thing Taylor's experimenting with at the moment, I think she would be the better choice.

She totally has that 200-year-old, been there, done that, world weary thing going on, don't you think?

Moonlight's Alex O'Loughlin Splits With Holly Valance

The Sydney Daily Telegraph is reporting that Moonlight's Alex O'Loughlin has split with his girlfriend of four years, Australian actress Holly Valance.

Holly guested on Moonlight and has gone on to have roles in Prison Break and Entourage, and in the Liam Neeson movie Taken.

I wonder if the reason she split with Alex was because his vampire series got canceled.

Top Chef's Carla Used To Be A Model

I heard it but I don't believe it.

Top Chef
contestant Carla Hall said on this week's show that she used to be a model.


Maybe she was the model for Sideshow Bob.

I Hate the Octo-Mom and So Does Angelina Jolie...and the Rest of the World

Thursday, February 12, 2009

Surprise! Surprise! Octo-mom Nadya Suleman has been getting death threats after launching a website asking for donations. Did she really think people would support her in her attempt to fleece the public (and taxpayers, who have ponied up more than $160,000 in disability payments to her)?

And now the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that Angelina Jolie is creeped out by the Octo-Monster:

Though Suleman categorically denies she's undergone any plastic surgery to make her look like Jolie, neighbors, friends and family members of the unemployed single mom of 14 challenge those denials -- as do earlier photographs of Suleman clearly indicating thinner lips and a different-looking nose.

Apparently, over the past year or so, Suleman has made attempts to reach out the the actress -- sending her admiring letters and extolling her talent and humanitarian efforts on behalf of children's issues around the world.

''At least she wasn't a total crazy ... like the stalkers who try to actually meet Angelina and follow along with the paparazzi,'' added the source, who also said, ''It is clear this woman needs psychological help. It's one thing to clip out a celebrity's photo from a magazine and ask your [hair] stylist to copy that cut. Who hasn't done that? But to have a nose job, have collagen injections in your lips and start talking like Angelina -- that's over the top.''

Joanna Pacitti Kicked Off Idol

Finally! American Idol released a statement last night saying that Joanna Pacitti had been deemed ineligible to compete in the competition. She is being replaced by Felicia Barton, who did a great version of "Put Your Records On."

The L.A. Times reports that Joanna was kicked off to avoid the appearance of impropriety. Joanna, who has had a record deal in the past and been featured on the Legally Blonde soundtrack, apparently has close relationships with two execs at Idol's production company, 19.

Now if they can just work out a way to kick Tatiana off...

Tatiana Del Toro Is In Idol's Top 36

Wednesday, February 11, 2009

God damn it! That annoying Tatiana Del Toro made it to American Idol's top 36. I don't know why they bothered cause no one is going to want to call in for her... unless they are subversive Vote for the Worst types of people. I seriously hate this girl.

And I am so disappointed that she gets through while Jamar Rogers gets cut.

And can we talk a minute about Norman Gentle (Nick Mitchell)? He got through too. Since when did American Idol become a comedy/cabaret show? Norman reminds me of Aussie superstar Bob Downe, only not as good.

And to top it all off, those two hours of Idol in the "judges' mansion" were excruciatingly boring. Simon looked more bored than usual. And that's really saying something. Bring on the performances!
