Rachel McAdams & Josh Lucas Go For A Bike Ride

McLucas is still not as cute as McGosling but whatevs

Here are a few pics of Rachel McAdams and her new lover Josh Lucas enjoying a bike ride together in Manhattan this week trying to look as cute as possible …


… tho try as they might, together they still aren’t as adorable as McGosling were back in the day. Trust me, I’ve tried to jump on board with these two as a couple — and I am happy that they are together — but my heart still aches for the days when Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling were a couple. But … it’s not really for us to decide who Rachel should be dating (which is lucky for Josh). She’s now attached to Mr. Lucas and I guess we should just learn to accept it. I promise, I’ll keep trying to do just that.

Benji Madden Plays Bodyguard For Nicole Richie

Armed & Fabulous

Benji Madden played the dutiful bodyguard for his kinda-sorta sister-in-law (but not really) Nicole Richie here in SoCal yesterday as she made her way out of the Serge Normant salon. In order to provide the maximum amount of protection, Benji saw fit to bust our his bare, musclely arms … behold:


Well now … it’s nice to see that Benji is using his hawt arms for more than just making the girls swoon. It’s really cool that he’s there to take care of his brother’s lady when she needs the support. Hell, any opportunity for Benji to bare his arms is one that I welcome so … bodyguard away, Benj! Keep those paps at bay!

Kelly McGillis Comes Out Of The Closet

'Top Gun' star is "done with the man thing"

Kelly McGillis, who famously played Tom Cruise‘s flight instructor/love interest in Top Gun, is finally opening up and coming out about who she is. In a new interview with Girl Rock!, Kelly proudly announced that she is gay and is no longer interested in doing “the man thing” now that she is finally able to be “true to [herself]“:


Kelly McGillis, best known as Tom Cruise’s girlfriend in 1986′s Top Gun, has revealed to the Internet show Girl Rock! that she is single but no longer searching for a male companion. Asked if she’s looking to date a man or woman, the actress, 51, replied, “Definitely a woman.” The twice-divorced mother of two daughters – her movies also include 1985′s Witness, with Harrison Ford, and 1988′s The Accused, with Jodie Foster – said she’s “done with the man thing. I did that. I need to move on in life. It’s a part of being true to yourself. That’s been a challenge for me.” The difficulty of coming out as a lesbian led to “an ongoing process from the time I was probably 12. I had a lot of things happen that convinced me that God was punishing me because I was gay,” said McGillis, who in 1982 was assaulted by an escaped rapist who had gotten into her apartment. Now gray-haired and in rehearsals for The Little Foxes on stage in Pasadena, Calif., McGillis also told the show that she would like to jump back onto the big screen – except for one thing. “Whenever I get an offer, they ask me to dye my hair,” she says. “And I just won’t.”

Yay! I am so happy for her!! Coming out is never easy and I imagine that it is especially difficult to come out later in life. I suspect that Kelly prolly always knew who she was on the inside and struggled with her identity for some time. Now that she is comfortable talking about who she really is, she is well on her way to finding true and blissful happiness. It really sounds like Kelly McGillis is very sure of who she is as a woman and is happy with who she is … it’s surprising how many people out there cannot say the same about themselves.

Brad Pitt Films A New Commercial In NYC

For an exclusively Japanese audience

Brad Pitt was spotted hard at work on the NYC set of a new cell phone company commercial that he is currently filming for SoftBank in Japan. SoftBank, you may ask? Yes, Brad is the spokesperson for the SoftBank mobile phone company in Japan and has previously appeared in ads for the company … ads which are never shown here in the US. For this latest commercial, Brad has been teamed up with a large sumo-wrestler-lookin’ dude for a comedic new ad … here are a few pics:


Big name celebs often appear in foreign commercials like this that never get shown here in the US but end up making them a lot of money from companies abroad. Celebs who you’d think would never want to appear in a cell phone ad (like for T-Mobile or Alltel) have no qualms about doing so for a company in, say, Japan because those ads would never air here on US television (and the celebs make a lot of money from those companies). But, thanks to the wonders of the Internets, we are still able to watch these ads online. After the jump, check out an ad that Brad Pitt did for the SoftBank company last year — the ad involves Brad using his mobile phone to snap pics of topless chicks … More »

The Trek Home

The TV Guide

And so … David and I have safely returned home to SoCal after a pretty long day of travel yesterday. We checked out of the Hard Rock Hotel Chicago and made our way to the airport early since we weren’t sure how long it would take to get there in the bizzy Chicago traffic. We made good time and managed to have enough time to eat lunch before our first flight to Minneapolis. Our lay-over was just about 15 mins. so we had to run from one end of the airport to the other to make our flight home to LA. All in all, tho, I have no complaints … both flights were on time and we made it home safe and sound.

I’m very excited for tonight tho … David and I will be attending the Hollywood premiere of Star Trek at Grauman’s Chinese Theater!


I understand the guest list is very cool so we are very much looking forward to a great time. PLUS, I’m very excited to get to see the film :) I promise to take as many photos as I can to share with all y’all on the blog tomorrow!

It’s great to be home, y’all … Woot!

When Miley’s Away, Justin Gaston Won’t Play

Indentured servitude

Miley Cyrus has been out of the country for the past week or two doing heavy promotion abroad for her new film The Hannah Montana Movie and, unfortch, had to leave behind her 20 year old manfriend and sometimes underwear model Justin Gaston (tho, you may recall that she did manage to spend time with her more age appropriate ex-boyfriend Nick Jonas before she jetted off to Europe). It looks like Justin, who oddly enough for a 20 year old man lives with his 16 year old girlfriend’s family, was kept pretty bizzy by the Cyrus clan while Miley was away as there is a photo of Justin chauffeuring around members of the Cyrus fam earlier this week … who are, clearly, keen on making him work for his posh living. It’s a shame that there aren’t any other photos of Justin doing menial work for the Cyrus fam (cutting the grass, washing the cars, etc.) cuz then we’d know why they insist on keeping him around.

But, happy days are here again for Justin GastonMiley has returned from her European jaunt and immediately plucked Justin from his servitude and took him out for dinner at Koi last night:


Miley posted a tweet (message) on her official Twitter profile last night alerting us to the fact that she was dining with “someone special” … take that Nick Jonas. I, personally, cannot wait for Miley‘s next trip tho … having Justin go back to work would be fun — especially since it’s heating up and I’m sure the Cyrus family could use a poolboy … a shirtless poolboy. Go away, Miley!!
