Sex List Drama: Lindsay Lohan Responds to James Franco


Lindsay Lohan has finally responded to James Franco's short story about her, in which he denies sleeping with the Mean Girls star.

Lilo, currently getting ready to make her London stage debut, spoke to the Daily Mail about that infamous "sex list," and how she feels about the Palo Alto actor referring to her as "damaged."

Lohan, 28, told the Mail that that the list of her previous and/or one-time lovers, made public early this year, was written as part of her treatment at Betty Ford and should have remained private.

"I was in AA and that's a really personal thing and there are steps and processes that you go through. I don't want to say too much because there is anonymity between people and mine was broken," but , the Liz & Dick star explained, "I was moving to go back to New York from LA. I had some friends over that I probably should have questioned a bit but I don't like to see the bad in people. I like to see the good, so I ignored it and then someone must have stolen it and that's a really personal thing, that's something I would never do to anyone."

Lindsay owned up to the list at the time, and even joked about it to Ellen DeGeneres but it seems James Franco's part in the betrayal has cut a little deeper.

Asked if she was aware of Franco's short story, "Bungalow 89," written for Vice magazine in June, Lohan responded, "When people say things about other people I don't think it's necessary, I've never talked about anyone else and I never will," before adding "I didn't read it." lol

Franco, 36, and Zachary Quinto were spotted on the set of their new film, Michael, filming in Freeport, NY. The movie is based on the true story of Michael Glatze, a former gay activist who later became an anti-Gay Christian pastor. Quinto portrays Glatze's lover.

Daniel Radcliffe finds interest in actors 'weird'

 photo d1694294fa50de1f5c0f6a7067007f5d_zps9db9c6b5.jpg

Daniel Radcliffe says he finds the concept of celebrity and the level of interest in the trivia of actors' lives "weird."

While promoting his first romantic comedy — What If, directed by Michael Dowse — the 25-year-old British star was keen to keep the conversation away from his own love life. Radcliffe is rumored to be dating his Kill Your Darlings co-star Erin Darke.

"People ask me about my relationship, and I try to give a little away as possible," Radcliffe explained. "People are dying in the world, give time to that."

And yet despite his best efforts to keep quiet about his personal life, the former Harry Potter star still finds himself to be tabloid fodder.

"That gets turned into a story in itself," he said. "'Oh, you've been really open about this.' 'No, I haven't. I was just, like, trying to keep my mouth shut.'"


Radcliffe was happy, however, to talk about his career choices post-Harry Potter. Since leaving the boy wizard behind him, he has sought out challenging roles and embraced on-screen nudity. Whether portraying Beat poet Allen Ginsberg in Kill Your Darlings or skinny-dipping in What If, Radcliffe joked that he wasn't "intentionally" seeking out roles in which he can appear naked.

Yet it all comes naturally now after a stint in Equus back in 2007, in which he stood in the nude onstage night after night. "Doing it onstage when I was 17 kind of makes you go 'meh' about anything else after that," he said.

What If stars Radcliffe pining for his character's best friend, played by Zoe Kazan. It opens Wednesday in the U.K.

Fergie: French kissing my son is ‘so delicious’



Fergie may be enjoying motherhood a little too much.

The Black Eyed Peas singer, 39, confessed to French kissing her 11-month-old son, Axl, while recreating the iconic “Kissing the War Goodbye” photo from the ‘40s “where this sailor and this nurse get together and they make out.”

“I kissed Axl and Josh [Duhamel, her husband] at home — both French,” she told Chelsea Handler on “Chelsea Lately” Thursday. “My son likes to French kiss me a lot. It’s so delicious! He goes in for the kill, but I’ll have to cut that off at a certain age, or else it’ll be weird, a little bit Oediupus.”

Despite being very close with her relatives, Fergie said she’s unsure if she’ll bring Josh, 41, and Axl on tour for her next album.

"Every word that came from the tabloids," Wilkinson says as her eyes fill with tears, "Boom … boom ... boom. When did he do this? While you were eight months pregnant."

Wilkinson goes on to to describe how the news felt like she was "getting shot," and that it prompted her to take a very dramatic step: She flushed her wedding rings down the toilet.

'The Knick' News: André Holland Talks Algernon Edwards

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: 'The Knick' Star André Holland Talks Algernon Edwards & Cornelia Robertson's Relationship, Race Issues & More About New Cinemax Series
By JON NILES

Steven Soderbergh's new series based on a New York City hospital in 1900 showcases progressiveness in the operating room while staying conservative on other matters such as race. At the center if this issue is Dr. Algernon Edwards, a Harvard educated, European trained surgeon that is offered a high position at the Knickerbocker Hospital, but is met by opposition from Chief Surgeon John Thackery (Clive Owen). The talented André Holland portrays this important role of Edwards.

Holland recently spoke with us about how he landed this important role on the Cinemax drama, what we can expect from Algernon and the relationships he forges, and why an early second season order for The Knick is surely something fans can be excited about.

How did you get involved with The Knick?

Well, my agent sent me this script. I read it and right away I was blown away by the material, as I think everyone else was. When I read the character, I thought, Jesus he's such a complex and beautifully drawn character. I couldn't not be involved. I put myself on tape -I was in Europe at the time actually - and then I sent it out. I ended up sending out a couple of other tapes subsequently, and then I met with Steven. We had lunch together, then the writers came, and we all talked for a little while and the next day I got the offer. I was blown away! It felt so great to get a chance to work with these guys.

Arrow’s Stephen Amell Takes The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

arrow-stephen-amell-ice-bucket-challenge-104854

Have you seen the plethora of videos of people dumping ice water over their heads on Facebook? The videos are part of that ALS Ice Bucket challenge. In the challenge, people dump cold water over their heads to raise awareness for ALS. Then, they nominate some of their friends to do the same.

On Friday, Robbie Amell, who was recently cast as Firestorm on the Flash, posted video of himself taking the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, and he nominated his cousin and Arrow star Stephen Amell to do the same. A couple hours after the challenge was issued, Stephen Amell responded by taking the challenge and posting video of a large bucket of ice water being dumped over his head. Talking things to the extreme, Amell actually used a trashcan of ice water so big that it took three people to lift it.

Why no future Hollywood star could ever match Lauren Bacall's allure



At the Oscar ceremony 10 years ago – the one where Peter Jackson's third Lord of the Rings film hauled away another sack of precious gold – it was still possible to say that Old Hollywood was being celebrated alongside modern Hollywood. Dotted around the auditorium at the Kodak Theatre that night were several of the venerated faces of motion pictures' golden age. At one point, Tom Hanks stepped up to present a special tribute to the comedian Bob Hope, then aged 101, and later Julia Roberts made a similar presentation to a 96-year-old Katharine Hepburn.

The sombre "in memoriam" sequence in 2004 paid tribute to Donald O'Connor, star of Singing in the Rain, to Gregory Peck, to Elia Kazan and to Ann Miller, the aged dance star who had only recently reappeared on the silver screen to play a cameo role as a spooky remnant of Hollywood glamour in David Lynch's Mulholland Drive.

The death last week of Lauren Bacall, Humphrey Bogart's co-star in To Have and Have Not, The Big Sleep and Key Largo, caused many film fans to mourn the passing of one of the last truly great Hollywood talents. When shall we see her like again, several asked, and how can the tawdry, brash Los Angeles of today ever compete?

Manuel Neuer to have wax statue at Madame Tussauds in Berlin

tumblr_nad3aiW8yD1rrboavo8_500

Germany's World Cup-winning goalkeeper Manuel Neuer is set to be immortalized in the form of a a waxwork model at Madame Tussauds in Berlin, the museum announced Wednesday.

"Manuel Neuer is one of the most popular footballers, and since the World Cup he's been the most requested figure by our visitors," explained museum director Sandra Schmalzried, who expressed regret at being unable to honor the entire Germany squad, adding: "but at 200,000 euros ($267,921, £160,235) per player, it's not possible".

The Bayern Munich 'keeper, who was voted his country's player of the year in a poll conducted by German football magazine Kicker, will be subjected to a series of measurements and photographs before a team of 20 experts begin a four-month project on the model in London.

Neuer's wax likeness will join that of another former Bayern and Germany goalkeeping legend Oliver Kahn as well as those of Mesut Ozil and Jurgen Klinsmann in the Berlin museum.

Football post!!! Bird poop and a magical European Cup baby conceived in Istanbul.

Manchester United vs Swansea: Ashley Young appears to catch bird droppings in his mouth while berating defence

Vine here (IDK how to make it imbed)

Louis van Gaal’s side walked out at Old Trafford for their first Premier League match under Louis van Gaal with renewed optimism, but it was soon normal service resumed as Swansea took the lead through Ki Sung-Yeung’s first half strike.

It couldn’t get much worse for United, but that’s exactly what did happen for midfielder Ashley Young. The England international was left fuming at his side’s defending and gave them a piece of his mind, only for what appeared to be a chunk of bird excrement to land in his mouth.

The image was captured during BT Sport’s live coverage and quickly flooded social media, with the hilarious/sickening shot quickly going viral.

It also showed that football fans are ready to try and defy the Premier League following their announcement that they will attempt to crackdown on Vines of live action.

United also has Jesse Lingard limp out of his Premier League debut with a knee injury, and he was replaced early on by Adnan Januzaj to cap a dismal opening half to the season.

The bonus was at least Young didn't dive after the contact.
