Statistics and More on Women in the Film Industry: Part 2


Despite Bigelow's Oscar Win,
Celluloid Ceiling Higher Than Ever for Women,
Report Says

Kathryn Bigelow won the "Best Director" Oscar last year but it's still a man's world in Hollywood -- especially behind the camera.

Just ask Catherine Hardwicke. She directed 2008's "Twilight," the first in the hugely successful vampire franchise, but Hardwicke told TheWrap she was prevented from even pitching to direct "The Fighter."

"I couldn't get an interview even though my last movie made $400 million," she said to TheWrap. "I was told it had to be directed by a man -- am I crazy?" said Hardwicke, who also noted she liked what David O. Russell did on the film. "It's about action, it's about boxing, so a man has to direct it ... But they'll let a man direct "Sex in the City" or any girly movie you've ever heard of."


Collapse )

also, before all the olbigatory, "gawd that Twilight director," just remember that she was directing before (and now after) Twilight. Even though I didn't like it, apparently thirteen was awesum or whatevs. with that covered, wtf at these statistics. so much for everything getting better.

7 Reasons Why People Hate Gwyneth Paltrow

Alternate title: 7 incredibly pretentious Gwyneth Paltrow quotes.

1. “I don't really have drunk friends. My friends are kind of adult; they have a drink. But they hold their liquor. I think it's incredibly embarrassing when people are drunk. It just looks so ridiculous. I find it very degrading. I think, ooh, you're really degrading yourself right now, to be this pissed out in public.”

Kim Never Says Never (to anything that ho)

Kim Kardashian may very well be one of the bravest people on the planet. After facing all sorts of attention (mostly of the negative variety) from Justin Bieber fans after jokingly calling him her significant other last spring, Kim is now doing her part to promote the 16-year old's motion-picture debut "Never Say Never."

Want to see specifically what we're talking about here? All you have to do is check out the video to the left of this article. In it, Kim says that she and Khloe (who is sported the red-haired look that she had for about two weeks) are planning to spend their Valentine's Day checking out Justin's new movie. The sisters are joining such other people as Diddy, Jay Leno, Julianne Hough, and even Angelina Jolie (who at least took a picture next to Justin, who was wearing the purple 3D glasses) in working to get the word out about this movie hitting theaters on February 11.

How well will this project actually fare? This isn't exactly a concert film, which gives it more potential than some films of that variety -- it also has a bit of a documentary style to it, as well.

Ricky Gervais: Golden Globes have asked me back

Ricky Gervais says he's been asked to present the Golden Globes again next year, despite the supposed controversy over him being rude to Hollywood millionaires this time around.

However he admits he’s not sure whether he should return to the podium, as he doesn’t know if he could bring anything new to the job for a third year.

Writing in this week's Heat magazine, Gervais said: 'The ratings went up again, and the organisers asked me to consider a third year. [But] I don’t think I should. I don’t know what I could do better. I certainly couldn’t get more press for them, that’s for sure.

And with reference to The Office and Extras, he joked: ‘You know me. Two seasons is enough.’

He said: ‘The response was staggering. It was discussed on every news channel and chat show for weeks. The weird thing is, the question is always, “Did Ricky go too far?” And the answer is always, “No.” I have yet to find anyone who was actually offended by it.’

A spokesman for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which organizes the awards, said after the show that Gervais ‘went too far.. The HFPA would never condone some of his personal remarks’.

However, he added: ‘Overall, the show was among the best we've ever had and we were pleased.’

Yay, congratulations! And finally. It was felt like she was pregnant forever. Love the name!

Chuck‘s Sarah Lancaster has had a busy year already.

The actress, 30, married her boyfriend of two years, attorney Matthew Jacobs, Saturday in a small ceremony in Southern California, her rep tells PEOPLE exclusively. But there’s more: She’s also pregnant!

“It’s a really happy time in our lives,” the couple say in a statement. “We are thrilled to be starting a family and our wedding weekend was simply perfect. “

Lancaster’s personal wedding touches included wearing her grandmother’s gold mesh heirloom bracelet — which Lancaster’s parents had engraved with her grandparents’ wedding date and gave her as a wedding gift — and her mother’s pearl earrings.

The bride wore a dress by Amsale, while the groom donned his father’s 3-piece wedding suit from the 1960s.

Congratulations to her! And LOL at the irony, considering Ellie's storyline on Chuck last night. So, how are they going to hide it?

Aw, No Love for Cazwell?

Dallas' Gays Don't Care About Lady Bunny, Cazwell, College Football

If you wonder how nightlife personalities actually make a living, understand that a bulk of their revenue comes from getting paid just to show up. Which is what Lady Bunny, the Village People's Randy Jones, and sassy rapper Cazwell were planning on doing in Dallas on Thursday for a gay Cotton Bowl party, hosted each year to watch a ceremonial college football game scheduled as a precursor to Sunday's Super Bowl. Except nobody bought tickets. Well, 13 of you did. So organizers are canceling the event — but Saturday and Sunday's parties are still a go.

Aw, they even released a trailer and everything:


Matt Damon on the set of "We Bought a Zoo"

Matt Damon is spotted in good spirits on the set of We Bought A Zoo in Los Angeles.

London’s Mirror had an interesting interview last week with Benjamin Mee, the inspiration for the movie; he told the paper that having Matt Damon portray him is a dream come true: “I was asked who I would like to play me and I said Matt ­because I’m a fan of his Bourne films, but I never imagined for a moment it would happen. Then I got the call when I had an arm up to the shoulder in a storm drain, trying to clear it. A voice from LA said, ‘Hi Benjamin, great news! Matt has agreed to be you!’”

Zachary Levi Divulges Some ‘Chuck’ Intel

I found Zachary Levi in the star-studded crowd at NBC’s party for the Television Critics Association earlier this month. He was posing for pictures with the cast of “Community,” and “Perfect Couples” star Olivia Munn who’d guest starred on his show “Chuck.” I got my private time with Levi, but as “Chuck” fans know, he wasn’t giving up any spoilers. He still had some things to share about the new episodes.

Q: What are you excited about for “Chuck?”
ZL: Oh, it’s just a lot of the same. A lot of the same fun missions that we go on and defeating evil bad guys. More comedy, more drama, all that same stuff.

Q: Are you surprised where the story has gone?
ZL: I guess. Kind of. You always wonder where they’re going to go with the next season. I certainly had no idea where we would end up or that we would even end up with a fourth season, but here we are. We’re still around and still coming to these little fun deals.

Vanity Fair: The 2011 Hollywood Issue

Follow-up to this post.

For our 17th annual Hollywood Issue cover, Vanity Fair went back to the basics—no teenagers, no penguins, no (full-on) nudity, just the most exciting actors and actresses of the moment. Anchoring the front panel are Oscar co-hosts Anne Hathaway and James Franco (himself a best-actor nominee), along with Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal, two of the most versatile, likable (and, yes, good-looking) leading men in Hollywood.

The two inside panels feature 11 more stars, from newcomer best-actor/actress nominees Jesse Eisenberg and Jennifer Lawrence to Noomi Rapace, whose stunning performance in the original, Swedish version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo propelled her from Stockholm to Hollywood. The cover was shot in Los Angeles and New York over the course of two days by photographer Norman Jean Roy, and, as you can see in the behind-the-scenes video below, V.F.’s West Coast editor Krista Smith managed to nab nearly all of our cover subjects for sit-down interviews on set.

Cyndi Lauper shows off her chemical peel...?

Many women approaching their 60s will try some sort of cosmetic procedure in an attempt to turn back the years.

And it seems that Cyndi Lauper could be no exception.

The 57-year-old singer was snapped at an airport yesterday with a bright red face and sore-looking skin.

Either she has had a very nasty reaction to her make-up or it could be the aftermath of a day of too much sun.

But we suspect the pale-faced veteran pop star has succumbed to vanity and had a chemical peel, which can result in some irritation, redness and peeling skin on the face for a few days afterwards.

Kacey Jordan gives Howard Stern the complete lowdown from Charlie Sheen's bender

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I'm sitting here listening to Howard Stern on Sirius, and listening to Kacey Jordan, Charlie Sheen's porn star - reveal all the details from the bender that landed him in rehab. She is something else, I'll just say that. Here are some of the snippets from the interview. (May be choppy, I'm posting as she's speaking)

Porn star Kacey Joran got a call on Monday, hears that Charlie Sheen wants to see her. Kacey gets dressed in her "sluttiest outfit". When she gets to his mansion - there were lots of girls already there. Girls looked "rundown" - like they had been there for a while. She said they looked like they had been partying hard with Charlie. After Kacey arrived, some of the other girls left, because Charlie was giving all the attention to Kacey.

Kacey tweeted NSFW pic from his house

He tells Kacey that he's seen all her movies, and starts talking about several of her "scenes". Kacey claims he was drunk - not high, because they had run out of drugs the night before.

He had wine stains all over his shirt, he was drunk, but coherent. They did an "alcohol contest" right away, Charlie of course wins.

Charlie's real estate agent and assistant were there also, didn't say whether or not they partied with them, but it's hard to imagine them just sitting there minding their own business.

Charlie did "tennis ball" size bags of coke. He throws one to Kacey - tells her "go ahead, have one". Kacey says she didn't do any drugs. She said he was free-basing the coke. He would take chunks off the balls of coke, shove it in his pipe and smoke it. He did it "every five minutes".

gaga NOT on Gnomeo and Juliet Soundtrack

If you want to hear Elton John's duet with Lady Gaga, you'll apparently have to buy a movie ticket.

The soundtrack version of "Hello Hello," the slow-tempo pop ditty written by John and Bernie Taupin for the upcoming animated film "Gnomeo & Juliet," only features the Rocket Man, while the rendition including Lady Gaga is only in the movie. A spokeswoman for Buena Vista Records confirmed the duet is only in the film and wouldn't be released on radio.

John said in an interview that he asked Gaga to join him for the song last year after she performed at a charity benefit at his home in England. Their collaboration could end up on her upcoming album, "Born This Way," though it's unlikely because the duo aren't labelmates. A spokesman for Interscope, Lady Gaga's label, declined to comment.

Lady Gaga is expected to perform the title track from "Born This Way" on Feb. 13 at the Grammys, the same awards show where John joined Lady Gaga last year for a mash-up of her "Speechless" and his "Your Song." John said he's heard "Born This Way" and called it "the song that will wipe 'I Will Survive' off the map." Lady Gaga released the song's lyrics on Twitter last week.

"Gnomeo & Juliet" is scheduled to debut Feb. 11. The soundtrack is set for release Feb. 8.

ABC Family orders three shows, including Raven-Symoné's 'Georgia'

ABC Family has picked up three new series, including The Great State of Georgia starring Raven-Symone.

Georgia is a half-hour comedy based on a feature film of the same name. It stars Raven-Symone as an “aspiring actress with a larger than life personality” who, along with her science geek best friend (Majandra Delfino), try to make headway in New York City.

Switched at Birth starring newcomer Katie Leclerc is a one-hour scripted drama, tells the story of two teenage girls who discover they were accidentally switched as newborns in the hospital: “Bay Kennish grew up in a wealthy family with two parents and a brother, while Daphne Vasquez, who lost her hearing at an early age due to a case of meningitis, grew up with a single mother in a poor neighborhood.”

Hailee Steinfeld: a new style star is born

The 14 year-old star of True Grit is making waves with her enviable red carpet style.

At the age of 14, Hailee Steinfeld has been nominated for the 'Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role' at this year's Oscars. She stars opposite Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon and Josh Brolin in 'True Grit' - a Western about a young girl searching for her father's murderer directed by the Coen brothers - and Steinfeld more than holds her own. Her performance in the film, released in the UK on the 11th February, has earned her comparisons with a young Jodie Foster.

What the Oscar nomination means - she was also nominated for a SAG and a BAFTA - is that she is in the throes of her first 'awards season'. The red carpet has become her second home over the last month or so, and she is giving actresses twice her age a run for their money.

So far, she has worn Calvin Klein , Moschino and Marc Jacobs . At the Golden Globes she wore a dress by Prabal Gurung , the current darling of the New York fashion scene. At Sunday night's SAG Awards, she looked fresh and fashion forward in colourful Prada .

One of the problems dressing such a young star for formal events is how to keep the gowns age appropriate. Many dresses designed for the red carpet will age an actress who is just 14. Go too far in the other direction and one risks making a girl look too sexy before her time.

Flashback: The First 2 Vanity Fair Hollywood Issues - 1995 and 1996

It all began in 1995 with 10 alluring beauties on a three-page foldout cover.  
The idea embedded in the title was that these were fresh careers, and they were only going up, up, up by 2000.

In order of most famous/relevant to least famous/relevant in April 1995:

Jennifer Jason Leigh, Uma Thurman, Nicole Kidman, Patricia Arquette, Linda Fiorentino, Gwyneth Paltrow,Sarah Jessica Parker, Julianne Moore, Angela Bassett, and Sandra Bullock

APRIL 1996: “BOYS’ TOWN” Tim Roth, Leonardo DiCaprio, Matthew McConaughey, Benicio Del Toro, Michael Rapaport, Stephen Dorff, Johnathon Schaech, David Arquette, Will Smith, and Skeet Ulrich.

The photoshoots were so bad, and the clothing was even worse. Gwyneth Paltrow's styling looks so out of place on the 1995 cover. Why was Sandra Bullock not wearing shoes?
The guys looked like they had no theme. WTF @ Will Smith's shirt. Notice how the men are fully covered except for Leo...ha...and how Will and Angela have the same placement. Diversity, y'all!

W Magazine responds to Kim Kardashian's freakout over nude pictures

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

On Sunday, during an episode of 'Kourtney and Kim Take New York', Kim Kardashian burst into tears and freaked out over her nude photo shoot for W Magazine. Kim screamed and cried - and complained that she felt misled by the magazine, and the photos were "full-on porn".

On Tuesday, a rep for the fashion bible told fashion blog The Cut:

"In keeping in line with the theme of W Magazine's November Art Issue, Kim Kardashian’s cover was conceived as an artistic collaboration with well-known artist Barbara Kruger, and was a meditation on the influence that reality TV has on contemporary culture."

"The inside portfolio documented the career and power of Kim Kardashian as a work of art, using the language of artists like Jeff Koons ... and Gilbert & George."

So W is basically saying that Kim Kardashian knew exactly what she was getting herself into, which exactly what my take was. The freakout on camera seemed fake.

Here are the unedited pics...if you haven't seen them.



Kim Richards Is Now Making Me Worry About Her.

 Kim Richards Refuses To Join Housewives Cast On Ellen After Drinking Problem Exposed

It looks like the ladies of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will be minus a cast member when they all tape the Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned

Kim Richards is the only Housewife not appearing with the cast, a source close to the family told RadarOnline.com, because she’s embarrassed that her drinking problem was revealed on national television on the show's recent season finale.

“She’s not doing Ellen because Bravo aired that she was an alcoholic on the reality show and she didn’t want that to be made public,” the source said.

But the problem goes much deeper than that.

“She’s not willing to admit she’s an alcoholic. That’s why she left rehab after one week.”

According to our source, Kim’s family -- which includes her sister and reality co-star Kyle and the famous Hilton clan -- has been trying to get her help for years, only now it’s tearing the family apart.

“Her family and friends have tried to help her and she’s not willing to accept the help, leaving everyone in her family in peril because of her stubbornness,” said the source. “Her daughters have been trying to move out of their mom’s house because the drinking is that bad.”

As of now, it’s still uncertain whether Kim will return for season 2 of the hit Bravo show.





A bunch of actresses try for Lois Lane. Henry Cavill may not be Superman after all.

We still don't know in which direction the new 'Superman' movie will head, with the exception of the fact that Henry Cavill will be playing Clark Kent / Superman. We've heard the film may follow Clark Kent as he travels the world as a journalist, trying to come to terms with his powers and whether he belongs in this world. We've also heard that Cavill may not be in the Superman suit at all, that folks behind the scenes have been testing an all-C.G. Superman that looks sorta like Christopher Reeve.

Duff Goldman taking Charm City Cakes to LA

TV viewers know Duff Goldman isn't afraid of a little risk. But as his popular Food Network show winds down, can he export his quirky Baltimore brand to the sunny environs of Los Angeles?

Some highlights from the article:
  • Now, the real 36-year-old Duff Goldman is testing the limits again. After a decade of much success making elaborate cakes in his Baltimore apartment and then in a converted church on Remington Avenue, Goldman is moving to Los Angeles in March to open a California version of Charm City Cakes. And the entrepreneur who says he has never taken out a loan through all the years of building Charm City into a multimillion-dollar empire of TV shows, books, recipes, department store appearances and a food product line, says he might show his first loss ever next year.
  • He also has three new TV shows in development — two of which he's willing to discuss. One is about the move to Los Angeles, while another blends travel with pastries. Think Duff Goldman in pursuit of great desserts.
  • Goldman insists that he is not abandoning the Baltimore operation, which will now be run by Geof Manthorne, the sous-chef and decorator.

RIP Society...Twilight is required reading at Ohio State University

"While we read and discuss some important, influential narratives about the supernatural – Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Henry James’ The Turn of the Screw, and Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight as well a few minor works."

This is for the honors English Class. Though at least the topic is youth, fiction I just feel this abomination of literature SHOULD NOT BE A REQUIRED BOOK FOR ADULTS. I mean I feel Harry Potter is genius but it's something I could see as required reading for maybe...5th grade? So great, if I go back to college and find out that Twilight is my required reading; I'm going to drop the class.

Shit Just Got Real!!! Multiple recordings of UFO in Jerusalem!!!

Jerusalem UFO: Across the weekend there have been numerous reports of UFO sightings over the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem.

In the videos a glowing orb can be seen descending down and stopping just above the Dome of the Rock. It hovers around there for a few seconds and then shoots upwards at lightning speed.

There seems to be quite a few videos that have been taken from different vantage points, all consistently showing the same t
hing. Naturally, of course there are lots of people screaming fake and doing their best to try and explain why the videos are faked.

Are they for real or are they faked? – Let us know your opinion.

Just a few hours between 7:15pm and 7:30pm a short time before the videos were taken in Jerusalem, there were sightings over Utah that seem to be very similar. we have added the Utah video below the two Jerusalem ones.

Britney doesn't channel Gaga in 'HIAM' video.

Just because Britney Spears is working with “Telephone” director Jonas Åkerlund and his stylist wife B. Åkerlund for the “Hold It Against Me” video does not mean that the clip will mirror Lady Gaga and Beyoncé’s extravaganza. Spears’ choreographer, Brian Friedman, said the video is all Britney.

“The styling for this video is beyond what Britney has done before,” he teased. “B. Åkerlund did the styling for it, and I can say that it is not ‘Britney does Gaga.’ That is not what’s happening with this. Gaga has her own niche, and although B. has worked with Gaga before, she’s not giving Britney anything that Gaga would wear. I love seeing Britney try out new things. It’s just an extension of what Britney already is.

With potential Gaga comparisons debunked, Friedman talked about having fun with Spears on set and helping her regain that joie de vivre that fans have come to know and love when she's out on the dance floor.
Friedman talked about having fun with Spears on set and helping her regain that joie de vivre that fans have come to know and love when she’s out on the dance floor.

“One of the places that we always tend to improve with Britney is on her beauty shots, when it’s just Britney alone dancing,” he said. “And one of the little tricks that I like to do is stand right off camera and scream words at her to try and get motivation from her and coach her through the little scenario that she’s in, so we did that in this video. And I know there was a picture posted of a bunch of microphones around her face, and that’s one of the scenes in particular where I was screaming at her on the side — in a good way.”

So, what does he scream at her?

Tiger! I scream tiger,” he dished. “When we first started working and I had her back in the studio, I was referring to how she danced when we were working together in the past, when we were doing ‘Slave,’ ‘Toxic,’ like some of those things. She used to have a prowl about her and an attack that to me was like a tiger, so I kept telling her, ‘I want to see the tiger back,’ ” he revealed. “I scream the word ‘tiger,’ so ‘tiger’ seems to work. It makes her laugh, so it works.

Colin Firth and Cameron Diaz to star in Coen brothers 'Gambit' remake!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Cameron Diaz
has just signed on to star opposite Colin Firth in the Joel and Ethan Coen-scripted Gambit, a remake of the 1966 British caper starring Michael Caine and Shirley MacLaine.

Storyline revolves around a London art curator (Firth) who plots an elaborate scheme to con a wealthy collector into buying a fake Monet painting. As part of the ruse, he recruits a Texas steer roper (Diaz) to play the part of a woman whose grandfather liberated the painting at the end of WWII.

This all sounds great except for the whole Cameron Diaz bit. I love Colin Firth - and I love the Coen brothers - but whose idea was it to cast Cameron? I think she's a terrible actress, this casting makes no sense to me!

Coen brothers are - of course - the geniuses behind such movies as 'No Country For Old Men', 'True Grit', 'Burn After Reading', 'O' Brother, Where Art Thou?', 'Fargo' and 'The Big Lebowski'.

AskMen's Top 99 Most Desirable Women of 2011


Who are the world's most desirable women? On its 10th anniversary, AskMen's 2011 Top 99 Most Desirable Women list presents a changing of the guard, as established celebrities drop off and surprising newcomers step in. This new crop -- selected from more than 5 million votes by AskMen's 16 million international readers -- is led by Blake Lively, who seized the top spot in a meteoric rise from No. 85 last year.

Superstars Gisele Bundchen (No. 34) and Angelina Jolie (No. 67) share the distinction of having made the Most Desirable list every single year from 2001 to 2011. With nine appearances, including a No. 1 ranking in 2007, Beyonce (No. 23) has earned the title of Woman of the Decade.

These queens of desirability, along with other mainstays like Alessandra Ambrosio (No. 31) and Megan Fox (No. 49), have moved down the list this year to make room in the Top 10 for up-and-comers like Sofia Vergara (No. 3) of "Modern Family" and Selita Ebanks, whose starring role in Kanye West's 35-minute video for Runaway secured her No. 4 standing this year, up from No. 80 in 2010. Past honorees Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Lopez, and Pamela Anderson have disappeared from the list in recent years, and actresses Kate Beckinsale and Eva Mendes have both fallen from the Top 10 after three consecutive years.

The decline of these perennial favorites shows a shift in men's tastes toward the latest group of hot, young celebrities taking the entertainment world by storm. Fresh faces like Rosie Huntington-Whitely (No. 15), who has replaced Megan Fox in the "Transformers" franchise, Kate Middleton (No. 61), set to marry Prince William, and Lea Michele (No. 91) of "Glee" fame, have been named Most Desirable for the first time. Will these young women become the new Beyonces and Angelinas?

Johansson or Adams in Uncharted?

The Uncharted movie could see either Scarlett Johansson or Amy Adams cast as TV journalist Elena Fisher if director David O. Russell has his way.

Empire mentioned to the Oscar-nominated filmmaker that they'd like to see Adams, his leading lady from The Fighter, play the female lead in the game-to-film, to which Russell replied, "I love Amy. I also love Scarlett Johansson; there's a lot of great actors I think might suit. Hopefully, we'll see how it works out with everybody who are being scoped to do that role."

Russell said he's "cultivated (Elena) quite a bit and I think I've added a lot of dimension to her so that's all I'm going to say. I love the woman characters and the more robust they are, the more robust the movie."

The director, who is also scripting Uncharted, said he's excited to be on the project and is working hard to maintain the cinematic qualities inherent in the game. He added, "I'd love Mark [Wahlberg] to be in it, I'd love Bob De Niro to be in it; I love the idea of growing them into a cinematic family; I think that's a really cool idea, but… I guess you'll have to wait until you see the script."

Let's Stop Comparing Living Actors to Dead Actors


No offense to Jake; I'm sure he's awesome. But what's with Hollywood and their mutually-admiring hackneyed comparisons? After all, Natalie Portman only called him that after he called her "the Audrey Hepburn of our generation."

First Hugh Grant was the Cary Grant of our time. (And look how that turned out!) Then George Clooney was the new Cary Grant, but I think he kind of lived it down. The latest contender? Gyllenhaal — who, about ten years ago, was named one of the "new Holden Caulfields," for what that's worth.

Of course, we all get where they're going with it: it means someone is suave and charming; can do light comedy or be a Hitchcock muse; and can rock a tux. When you think about it though, it's kind of a strangely-faceted comparison, especially when you consider that Grant was in some ways the ultimate Hollywood creature — totally reinvented, from name to accent — and is nowadays pretty much accepted as a byword for closeted Golden Age of Hollywood closely-closeted bisexuality. In short, a creation of the studio system and publicity departments, as much as a terrific actor.

The sexes of Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon's twins revealed

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Life & Style can exclusively confirm that Mariah Carey and husband Nick Cannon are expecting a boy--and a girl! "It's all about pink and blue these days," a friend of the couple tells Life & Style. "It's truly going to be a dream come true for them. They get a son and daughter."

And Mariah couldn't be happier. "Even before we announced it was twins, I was trying to keep everything genderneutral because I didn't want to impose an identity on them too soon," Mariah tells Life & Style with a laugh. "There were fan contests on Twitter about what gender they are and rumors about them being two boys or two girls -- but nobody guessed this!"

Aww, it's cute that they're having one of each!

10 Greatest Starships Of All Time

Starships are the coolest kind of vessels out there. They travel faster than light, they encounter strange new worlds, they turn space into their playground. But what are the coolest starships of them all? After much careful deliberation, we've come up with our definitive list of the 10 greatest starships in all space and time.

Feel free to disagree, or point out any ships we may have missed, in the comments. But bear in mind, we typed this on a computer — and computers are incapable of error. That means this list is also incapable of error. QED.

And for the purposes of this list, we're going by the definition of "starship" from the venerable "Starship Smackdown" event. Which means, a starship has to travel between star systems, and ideally ought to have a crew and a mission. So no Serenity, sorry.

One of the most powerful ships in the galaxy, the Andromeda is one of the last reminders of a more civilized time — but she can also get medieval on enemy ships when the need arises.

The Situation and Pauly D Help Justin Bieber Promote 'Never Say Never'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

In case you haven't heard, Justin Bieber has a new movie to promote. He's set to release his 3-D documentary concert film  "Never Say Never" next week. So, he's wrangled up some of his celebrity pals to help him promote his glossy, Jon Chu-directed film.

In the Pauly D promo, the "Jersey Shore" star makes this appeal to the camera: "I haven't been able to sleep. These thoughts keep running through my mind, that voice, that talent. This guy would kill it at the Shore," he says. "My hair won't even stand up anymore and I can't stop buying purple pants. I think I've got Bieber Fever. I've got to see this movie."

For his promo, The Situation shares with the world his "Guide To Pimpin." "How are you doing today class? I'm here to tell about pimpin. Justin Bieber's movie plus Valentine's Day, what does that equal to? Situation zone."
So, where is that? "It's in the back of the movie theater."
"And that boys and girls, is a situation," Bieber notes. "You just graduated."
"It's gonna be OK, Pauly," Bieber intervenes. "Think of me as your wingman."

Other reported "Never Say Never" promos will feature Diddy, Jay Leno, "Dancing With the Stars" alum Julianne Hough and Angelina Jolie, who took a picture next to the teen star in his purple 3-D glasses.

The Office is bringing in new characters, all hope is lost

The Office is hiring.

NBC’s hit comedy is looking to add at least two new cast members next season — and that’s in addition to the new boss.
One role is for a woman described as “Scranton hot.” She’s hired as an assistant to the office manager. Her former job was at an old folks’ home and she seems “pleasant and smart.”

The second role is for a man who’s fresh on the job market who joins Dunder Mifflin’s accounting department. The guy used to work at a golf course, probably went a community college, and is just happy to have a real job in this tough market. He’s “good-looking, but not WB looking.” (I’m loving whoever is writing these casting descriptions).

The parts are in addition to the role of Stanley’s older daughter — a part that’s now being cast that may also become a series regular.
But keep in mind none of these roles are set in stone — it’s a long way until next season, and the parts could change dramatically depending on the actors who show up, and how next season’s game-changing cast and storyline comes together.
The network and producers are otherwise keeping mum, as the show ramps up to Michael Scott’s departure and the Will Ferrell’s four-episode arc.

These sound like terrible ideas. Who do you wanna see take over as manager, ONTD? I personally would wanna see Ryan in a leadership position again.

Proactive the Latest Skins US Advertiser to Bail

Well, despite the fact that last night’s episode, “Chris,” was a total success in our estimation, another advertiser has pulled out. That’s right, one of the commercials you saw during last night’s episode will no longer be seen during Skins US. The company behind the acne-fighting agent Proactiv has yanked their ads from MTV’s Monday night timeslot.

The only thing we’re wondering: Was Proactiv upset about last night’s Chris bum-nudity? Or were they upset because the show presented their customers with an alternative acne remedy that costs nothing except one’s own dignity?

We think you know the moment we’re talking about… when Chris told the pawn shop attendant, "Piss on a piece of toilet paper and rub it on your face. It works better than Clearasil.” Clearasil, another Skins US advertiser, has yet to comment.

We didn’t want Proactiv on our Skins anyway, no matter what Jennifer Love Hewitt says! We say zits are in and Proactiv is out. You heard us, Skins fans, it’s time to boycott! Or just use Clearasil, who are (so far) sticking by the show.



Nina confesses she's banging Ian! ... or did she?

Bulgaria-Born Nina Dobrev Confesses Relationship with Cast Mate

Bulgaria-born Hollywood actress Nina Dobrev has confessed about her relationship with "The Vampire Diaries" cast mate Ian Somerhalder, as the TV series returns to the screen after a nearly two-month winter break.

The 22-year-old Dobrev has posted several pictures of her and Somerhalder on her Facebook profile, in which they show their mutual affection. In this way, she is finally confessing their relationship, which was a target of many media speculations.

Born in Bulgaria, Nina Dobrev moved to Canada at the age of 2 and grew up in Toronto, Ontario. She currently lives in Los Angeles, California, and in Atlanta, Georgia, where "The Vampire Diaries" is filmed.

As Elena Gilbert, the resilient, fresh-faced heroine of the CW's "The Vampire Diaries," Nina Dobrev plays a young woman with a lot on her plate - the recent deaths of her parents, a brother descending into drug abuse, a sulking ex and two suitors, who just happen to be vampires.

The popular TV show is currently airing its second season in the United States.

Possible Wonder Woman Script Leaks; Princess Diana Not Amused

SCOOP: David E. Kelley’s Wonder Woman TV Pilot Script Dissected – Without Major Spoilers

I heard Diana read the script.  I think she didn't like it.

Most details of the upcoming Wonder Woman TV show are being kept very securely under wraps. For all that the fans know, NBC and David E. Kelley could be cooking up a slightly goofy comedy-drama about a hotshot business woman who moonlights as a superheroine, packed with Girl Power pop-songs and including the awkward phrase “You go, girl.”

Gabriel Aubry Calls Halle Berry's Allegations 'Untrue and Irresponsible'


Gabriel Aubry is responding for the first time to Halle Berry's claims that their 2½-year-old daughter Nahla may be unsafe in his care.

"While Gabriel is disappointed in Halle’s decision to falsely malign him publicly and for her own purposes, he refuses to be pulled into her dispute over a canceled film production," a rep for the model, 34, said Tuesday in a statement to Access Hollywood.

"Gabriel also refuses to air their issues in the press as he believes this may ultimately harm their daughter," the statement continues. "The fact is that Gabriel is a caring father who shares custody of Nahla."

On Monday, Berry’s rep issued a statement to PEOPLE, stating that the Oscar winner, 44, had dropped out of her New Year's Eve film to focus on “custody issues” related to Nahla.

"Halle has serious concerns for her daughter's well-being while in the care of her father for any extended period of time and is prepared to take all necessary steps to protect her," the actress's statement said.

The couple split in April, and appeared to have been amicable. The first sign of trouble came when Aubry filed for joint custody of their daughter last month.


Andrew Garfield & Jesse Eisenberg Can't Stand JT Either

title or description

I mentioned this during the liveblog today and then totally forgot about it until a few emails started coming in – it’s a video that Thien sent me yesterday, an interview with Justin Timberlake, Jesse Eisenberg, and Andrew Garfield during which Jesse and Andrew appear to go off into their own conversation leaving Justin to look away aimlessly, scratching the back of his head. I’m guessing Thien forwarded it in relation to a photo I posted on Monday from the SAG Awards – click here to see – of the three of them and JT like an eager clinger trying to play with two people who can’t stand him.

Video Assumption?

You make the call.

To me, it’s like… he may as well not have been there at all. And while part of it certainly was a joke, like when they actually said that Justin the “one exception”, there’s something very, very strange about how disengaged JT is, his body language, that gives bitches with nothing better to do, like me, a reason to video assumption that they’d rather not have him around. Thoughts? Let me know!

RHOA breaks Bravo records, stays more popular than your favorite RH series

The season finale of The Real Housewives of Atlanta broke viewership records for Bravo.

The third-season closer, which aired Sunday, averaged 4.4 million total viewers, including 3.1 million viewers in the key adults 18-49 demo. That makes it the most-watched episode in the history of the Housewives franchise.

Season 3 of Atlanta also was the franchise's most-watched season ever, averaging 3.5 million total viewers, including 2.4 million in the demo.

Compared to the Season 2 finale, which aired in October, Sunday night's Atlanta episode was up 47% among total viewers and up 51% in the demo.

Following the Atlanta finale, chat show Watch What Happens: Live also posted series-high ratings, averaging 3.1 million total viewers and 2.1 million in the demo.


I thought the season dragged in the middle tbh, but the finale was pretty good.

As an aside, I was looking at celebritynetworth.com and found the estimated net worth of the ATL housewives. I don't know their methodology, so who knows how accurate these numbers are, but for the curious...

Kandi: $35.0M
Phaedra: $12.0M
NeNe and Greg: $3.5M
Kim: $1.5M
Sheree: $50K (no, I did not omit any zeros)
Cynthia: $50K (see above)

"Oh, are you going to adopt a Mexican child?" the host asks.

"No, I'm not adopting a Mexican child," says Aniston, 41, joking that her Just Go With It costar Adam Sandler "adopted four last week and that never even got mentioned. No, I'm not adopting any children."

As for the first question, Aniston adds, "And no doggies right now."

Model pleads not guilty in corkscrew castration

NEW YORK — The lawyer for a Portuguese model accused of castrating a celebrity TV journalist with a corkscrew and killing him says he is planning a "vigorous defense."

Renato Seabra (say-AH'-brah) pleaded not guilty Tuesday to a second-degree murder charge.
Police say the 21-year-old has confessed to killing well-known Portuguese journalist Carlos Castro on Jan. 7 at their hotel room in Manhattan.
They say Seabra brutally attacked his companion for at least an hour.
Proescutors says Seabra admitted to castrating Castro with a corkscrew, bludgeoning him with a computer monitor and stabbing him in the face.

Defense lawyer David Touger said after Seabra's court hearing that they hope for a positive outcome to the case, although he didn't elaborate.

Rick Ross knows how to burn money. The 'B.M.F.' rapper recently celebrated his 35th birthday in his hometown of Miami, shelling out approximately $1 million for a wild night on the town.

The Bawse followed his birthday party at Play nightclub with an after-hours bash at Miami's famed King of Diamonds strip club, where he was joined by a handful of celebrity friends, including Busta Rhymes, Pharrell Williams and fellow Bugatti Boys member, Diddy. During the course of the night, Ross reportedly spent $1 million at the popular Miami strip club, where Lil Wayne also celebrated his return to the city, after serving jail time in New York.

NBC Nitecap correspondent, Peter Bailey, captured some of the action from Ross' birthday blowout on video. Check out the footage after the jump.

Earlier this month, Ross revealed that his fifth studio album, titled 'God Forgives, I Don't' was almost near completion. The album's first single 'Made Men' featuring Drake hit the Internet on Jan. 3.

Top Gear Presenters Accused of Racism. World Acts Surprised

The Mexican Ambassador in London has complained about a recent episode of Top Gear , where its mouldering, corpulent presenters, likened a Mexican sports car to some negative stereotypes of his country. 

Not surprisingly the Mexican Ambassador was not amused and lodged a formal complaint with the BBC.     The BBC showed its contrition by reproducing the insults verbatim on their website.

Clarkson said he was confident he would not receive any complaints about their comments because the Mexican ambassador would be asleep.

He was, is and always will be all sorts of wrong.

Here is what's in the article mkay?

Reviewing the Mastretta on Sunday's show, Hammond said: "Mexican cars are just going to be lazy, feckless, flatulent, overweight, leaning against a fence asleep looking at a cactus with a blanket with a hole in the middle on as a coat."

The presenters, known for their edgy jibes, then described Mexican food as "refried sick".

Clarkson said he was confident he would not receive any complaints about their comments because the Mexican ambassador would be asleep.

However, the ambassador did complain, and demanded an apology from the BBC.
