Using His Head
Last week we saw new photos of actor Matt Damon with a totally shaved bald head on the set of his new film Elysium. Today we learn that Matt was in attendance at an outdoor event in Washington DC and, due to the blistering sunlight beating down, he had to slather sunblock all over his pale white head. It is very easy to get sunburnt in the midday sun so it was very, very smart of Matt so coat his head with as much sunblock as possible. More »

As I mentioned earlier, a group of friends and I got together last night to enjoy a fun dinner/movie night out and the film du jour (or, nuit, actually) was Crazy, Stupid Love. I have been looking forward to seeing this film for weeks and since I was out of town last weekend, I didn’t get a chance to see it until this weekend. The reviews for the film have been very good, which was encouraging. Alls I knew is that Ryan Gosling had a few shirtless scenes so … I was sold. I am happy to report that the film is fun, funny and deffo a great time. More »

Last night David and I met up with a group of friends for a fun dinner/movie hangout session. Emma brought Melanie, Darion brought Alex and Matt met us at the Arclight for a showing of Crazy, Stupid Love. Before we hit the movies, we met at La Boheme for a fun dinner in West Hollywood, CA. It had been some time since we got to hang out with Alex (who’s been bizzy world traveling for work) so it was really fun catching up with him. Everyone of us loved the movie (my review is forthcoming) so, all in all, it was a perfect Saturday night with friends. More »

Miley Cyrus seems to have the same love for multiple tattoos that David Beckham has because today we get to see the young girl’s 7th tattoo masterpiece. Apparently, Miley felt the need to show her support for equality (of some sort) by getting a equal sign tattooed on her finger (and then share a photo of it on her official Twitter profile). I’m not sure if this small moniker of support will actually do anything to turn the tide of inequality in the world but … it’s a nice gesture, I suppose. Wanna see her new tat? Check it out below.

Lindsay Lohan, in an apparent attempt to reacclimate herself to the Hollywood lifestyle that got her in trouble in the first place, has started hanging out with the likes of Paris Hilton … for some unknown reason. This weekend the former Hollywood “It” Girls (and Paris‘s wannabe clingy sister Nicky Hilton) made their way to Malibu, CA to do some partying and Lindsay unfortunately took a nasty tumble … in front of a big group of photogs. L. Lo claims she was “blinded” and “pushed” by the paps and that’s why she fell (of course) … but Paris was there to offer a helping hand to help her up again. See folks, that’s was former friends are for. More »
At the start of this month we saw video footage of Christian Bale and Anne Hathaway filming scenes for the upcoming sequel film Batman: The Dark Knight Rieses in the UK and a few weeks later, we saw the first signs of life on the Pittsburgh, PA set of the film. This weekend, filming was in FULL swing on the streets of Pittsburgh as many of main Batman actors surfaced on set for duty. Only Tom Hardy, in character as Bane, was dressed in any significant costume … but Christian Bale (Bruce Wayne/Batman), Gary Oldman (Commissioner Gordon) and Marion Cotillard (Miranda Tate) were among the big names on set yesterday.

Last night David and I made our way out to Echo Park to celebrate our friend Margaret‘s birthday. The night started out with a pizza party at Masa of Echo Park and then finished out at Margaret and Chris’s place nearby. The food was to die … TO DIE. The afterparty was superfun. Margaret and Chris were locked in an epic battle of wills where only one would emerge victorious … it was quite the spirited game of Jenga, y’all. More »

Young popstars Justin Bieber and Sean Kingston are having themselves an adorable little bromance together these days. The bros attended Selena Gomez‘s recent concert in Boca Raton, FL this week (and watched Selena perform her medley of Britney Spears songs in person) and yesterday were spotted tooling around Miami Beach in Sean‘s phat ride.

... I think
David Beckham is really fond of getting tattoos on his body to mark special occasions … like the birth of his sons, his wedding anniversary … Tuesday … so it should come as no surprise that he has, apparently, already gotten a new tattoo to commemorate the birth of his 3 week old newborn daughter Harper Seven. In a new interview filmed this week, a new tattoo can be seen peeking out of the top of Becks‘s shirt. Now the full tattoo is not visible … but it looks like he had the name Harper Seven tattooed in script on his collarbone. More »
"For the record ..."
Earlier this week, former Playboy Playmate and ex-fiancée Crystal Harris appeared on The Howard Stern Show and cattily cut down 85-year old Hugh Hefner‘s sexual prowess for the legion of Stern listeners to hear. According to Harris herself, sex with Hefner only lasted “2 minutes” and she divulged that she is/was not “turned on by Hef“. Hefner mildly repudiated Harris‘s comments but, apparently, not forcefully enough. Last night, Hef was more clear about his sexual prowess and explained to his Twitter followers exactly how sexual he really is. Interested? Read below. More »

The official You Tube channel for our dear Britney Spears was updated yesterday with THE most adorable video EVER that I couldn’t WAIT to share it with all y’all.

We are still about 4 months away from the release of The Muppets movie but the final one sheet poster for the film has already been released. Now, I’m not sure what makes a “one-sheet poster” special but I suspect it refers to a “main poster” (ie. with multiple characters) as opposed to individual “character posters”. My guess is that there will be more Muppets movie posters to come … but as far as one-sheets go, today we get to see the final one below. More »

So … I did it. I found a new car to replace the one I had to turn in last week. As the lease was winding down on my VW crossover, I wasn’t sure what to replace it with. As much as I loved my VW, it never felt as smooth, as slick as David’s Cadillac. So … it made sense to go look at the Cadillac SRX crossover … and, naturally, it was love at first sight. After David and I brought my new baby home, we made our way out to The Blank Theater to see our friend Tom Lenk in his one man show Nerdgasm. It was a bizzy but very fun day. More »

"Here's something more fun"
Who says the US government doesn’t have a sense of humor? Yesterday the official Twitter profile for the White House decided to have fun with a Twitter follower in particular by RickRolling them. For those of you who don’t know what RickRolling is, it’s an Internet meme whereby a person is tricked into thinking they are clicking on a link for one thing but, instead, are taken to the Rick Astley music video for Never Gonna Give You Up. In the midst of tweeting about the dire fiscal situation plaguing the US right now, the White House Twitter feed also provided a BRILLIANT link to the Rick Astley music video.

Mitch Winehouse, father of the late Amy Winehouse, took it upon himself to make a bunch of Winehouse fans very happy yesterday by giving away some of Amy‘s personal possessions. Mitch showed up at Amy‘s house and started handing out articles of her clothing to some of the fans that were convened in front of her home. Additionally, the Winehouse family (or maybe just Mitch himself) is putting out the claim that Amy died as a result of NOT drinking. I’m not sure that I totally believe that but, soon enough, we’ll know the results of her toxicology report and the matter should be put to rest … at last. More »

Back in June we learned the somewhat surprising (but not really) news that Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner and his Playmate fiancée Crystal Harris called off their wedding just days before they were supposed to say I Do because Crystal decided she did NOT want to be married to Hefner. Since that time, the couple have been fairly civil toward one another in the media … but all of that changed yesterday after Crystal appeared on The Howard Stern Show.

Over the weekend, Norway was rocked by a horrid terrorist attack on their own soil orchestrated by one of their own citizens.

A couple of weeks ago, we learned the somewhat surprising (but not really) news that 3 of Glee‘s main actors — Lea Michele, Chris Colfer and Cory Monteith — would be written off the show after the end of the upcoming 3rd season after their characters graduate from high school. In the wake of that announcement, Emmy Award nominations came out (including a nom for Chris Colfer) and eyebrows were raised over the way the actors were informed that they were being axed from the show (ie. they found out via social media or in the news … they, apparently, were not told in person). Today we learn that the powers that be at Glee have changed their minds … Lea, Chris and Cory will NOT be leaving the show after all. The characters will remain on Glee after season 3 … in an apparent attempt to appease fans of the show. More »

For the most part, we’ve been keeping things pretty chill but it’s been nice hanging out with David’s brother as well as some other friends we have here in the city. As we walked the streets, we came upon the American Conservatory Theater and were reminded that the new musical based on the Tales Of The City books by Armistead Maupin is still being performed. We snapped up tix and saw the show last night (review forthcoming). All in all, it was a pretty fantastic Saturday in the city. More »

Janis and Mitch Winehouse, parents of the late Amy Winehouse who was found dead in her apartment in London yesterday, have both commented on the passing of their late daughter. Naturally, both Janis and Mitch were shocked and devastated by the news but … very sadly … Amy‘s mother had been expecting her daughter’s death for years.

Yesterday was David’s and my first full day here in San Francisco, CA and it was quite a day. While David was wheeling and dealing out in the city, I simply *had* to take advantage of the shopping opportunities available here in Union Square.

In June of 2010, we learned that a new animated series based on the original 80′s cartoon Voltron: Defender of the Universe was going into production.

"It's not gratuitous sex, it facilitates the story."
Torchwood: Miracle Day, the first season of the long-running British series produced and filmed in the US, is doing very well on the Starz network but back in the motherland of the UK, it’s hit a bit of a snag. BBC censors have determined that the same-sex love scene that involves Captain Jack Harkness (played by lead John Barrowman) and a male bartender is too racy for broadcast — so they have cut the scene from the upcoming episode. Barrowman has gone on the record to express his disappointment at the BBC‘s decision to censor the scene. Read what he has to say about the censorship below … and check out a few HOT if kinda NSFW screencaps of the same-sex love scene in question below. More »

In the wake of all the news about the 2 live action adaptation films based on Snow White comes news that plans are in the works for visionary director Guillermo del Toro to bring the classic Beauty and the Beast tale to the live-action big screen. It is being reported today that Emma Watson, who rose to fame in the Harry Potter films, has secured the lead role as Belle (ie. the Beauty). Considering del Toro is directing, I don’t expect that this new version of Beauty and the Beast will be at all similar to the animated film produced by Disney in the early 90′s. More »

As I mentioned earlier, I was able to attend an early screening of Captain America: The First Avenger — which doesn’t hit theaters until this Friday. From the very start, I have voiced my concern for this film because I was worried that the movie (albeit a comic book movie) would not look believable. After seeing and falling in love with Thor this past Spring, I was certain that it would be my fave superhero film of the year (considering how disappointing Green Lantern was, Thor really was the frontrunner with X-Men: First Class as a close 2nd). But, I now stand corrected. IMHO, Captain America is THE best superhero movie of 2011. More »

'Harry Potter' and the Other Ending
British journalist and author Greg Palast has posted an interesting article on his official website this week that claims to reveal the alternate ending that author J.K. Rowling wrote for the final Harry Potter novel The Deathly Hallows. According to Palast, he and Rowling are friendly enough that she revealed to him in confidence the other ending she came up with for the final book. He claims that she divulged this other ending to him after he expressed to her his disappointment with the ending that was published in the book (he felt the published ending was too influenced by the eventual movie to follow). While Palast confesses he never saw the typed, hardcopy of this other ending, he claims that he remembers almost precisely what she told him … and now shares it with the world all these years later.

Last night, Darion and I went to a double feature of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Parts 1 & 2 (review forthcoming) and we had THE BEST TIME EVER. Despite the fact that we were both kinda bummed that we were about to bear witness to the LAST Harry Potter film, we were happy to be doing so together. D and I spent some of our time reminiscing about the HP films over the years. My advice for those of you who are excited for/dreading the end of Harry Potter, see the movie with a best friend. More »

After an amazingly successful 12-year run on Broadway (and many successful touring productions both here in the US and abroad), Rent is settling down again in NYC with an all new production, an all new cast and all of the SAME music that we all know and love.

Liz has been cast as Diana Payne and, as you can see from the photos below, she has her sights firmly planted on Chace Crawford‘s character Nate Archibald. Um, all I can say is … get it, gurl! More »
High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens is trying to expand her acting portfolio by taking on a gritty new film role that requires her to undergo a pretty severe make-over. In Gimme Shelter, Vanessa plays a pregnant teen who has been tossed into the streets and must fend for herself … so it’s basically Papa Don’t Preach: The Movie. Vanessa‘s Shelter character, as you can see below, makes her look much different than we are used to. Tattoos? Check. Body piercings? Check. Take a look below. More »

More Than they Bargained For
Back in April we saw a few photos of actors Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña filming scenes (or something) for their up coming film End of Watch. Last night, as they continued to prep for their film, Jake and Michael went on a police ride along here in LA and ended up on scene for an actual shooting. The car that they were riding in responded to an alleged gang shooting so Jake and Michael got an up-close and personal look at actual police work. More »
The Prequel of the Same Name

Justena Happily Flaunt Their Togetherness
Lovebirds Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, who earlier this week stepped out for a night of karaoke dueting together, made an appearance at the 2011 ESPY Awards here in LA last night. As I understand it, the ESPYs are handed out for accomplishments in the world of sport so neither Justin nor Selena were there to collect any awards. I think the primary goal of last night’s appearance was to show the world how much in LURVE they are with one another. More »

Looks Like Someone Is Missing a Tooth
Angelina Jolie and her daughters Zahara Marley and Shiloh Nouvel arrived here in SoCal last night at LAX Airport and were greeted by a throng of eager photogs. It’s been a while since we’ve seen photos of the Jolie-Pitt kids up close so I was happily surprised to see that Shiloh is losing her baby teeth already. There aren’t very many things cuter than a little kid with missing front teeth … and, to be honest, there aren’t many kids cuter than Shiloh with a missing front tooth. More »

Production has begun on the upcoming sequel film G.I. Joe: Cobra Strikes and lead actor Channing Tatum, who plays Joe leader Duke, is showing off his new hair’do.
