Chris Hemsworth Inadvertently Boosts Donations for Suicide Prevention Organization

While filming in the Gold Coast, Hemsworth noticed some crew members wearing these LIVIN hoodies and bought one. He was spotted wearing it on the Brisbane set, and as a result some more people ended up buying the hoodie.

Casey Lyons, one of the founders, said more than 100 orders were made yesterday for the grey hoodie. "That's phenomenal for us," he said."We would have sold a lot more if we had it. It's very humbling, but...we're always humble at any sale we make. It's a thrill to see anyone wear our merchandise. It was luck for us really."

LIVIN is a non-profit suicide prevention group co-founded by Queenslander Casey Lyons and Sam Webb (Australian Survivor) that aims to get young people to talk about their feelings, issues and problems using the mantra: "It ain't weak to speak." They produce a line of clothing as a way to raise money.

Jessica Alba says she regrets getting tattoos, also talks about makeup and fake tanning.

In her Allure cover story, Jessica talked about some of her beauty regrets and past habits.

On her tattoos:
"You’re never going to be in the same place emotionally and mentally at 18 that you are at 20 or 25 or 30. Something that’s meaningful to you when you’re younger is not going to be meaningful to you five years later. I have a few tattoos. I’m not into them now the way that I was."

On makeup:
"I actually wore too much makeup when I was a teenager. I wore a full face, and I probably [should have] worn a lot less. I didn't know that there was the no-makeup makeup look until I was in my 20s. I used to use a foundation stick and just rub it all over my face, and then I would break out. Then I would wear more makeup to cover the breakout. The most important foundation is great skin."

On fake tanning:
"I did it a little bit as a teenager and a young adult. I remember it was a trend, and we all used to do it. You put the sticker on to see how dark you got. I would go to my cousins' dances, like the Sadie Hawkins dance, and we would get a fake tan before. I would never do a tanning bed ever [now]."

Nate Parker Breaks Silence and Reveals Misogyny

Last night at screening of his movie, Nate Parker spoke out about his past treatment of women. The title of the article uses the quote "I was a dog" (Is this a new PR tactic?)

Also he said he never realized male privilege was a thing:

Speaking about male privilege, Parker, now 36, admitted:
"I never thought about it. I’m walking around daring someone to say something or do something that I define is racist or holding us back, but never really thinking about male culture and the destructive effect it’s having on our community."

Captain America no more? Steve Rogers may be coming back as the 'Nomad' in MCU's Infinity War

- According to the Russo brothers, when Cap drops his shield in front of Tony in Captain America: Civil War, he is affectively leaving behind his identity as Captain America in the MCU.

- Joe Russo:
“I think him dropping that shield is him letting go of that identity. [It’s] him admitting that certainly the identity of Captain America was in conflict with the very personal choice that he was making.”

- People are now speculating that this free-agent version of Steve Rogers will take up the code name "Nomad" like he does in the comics.


Well, this should be interesting. I guess Evan's tenure as Steve Rogers really is coming to an end after the two Infinity War installments : (

🚨🚨🚨Pop Emergency: Britney's VMA snake is actually not called Banana!!


- MTV writer Crystal Bell embarked on a journey to answer one of the biggest mysteries of the century surrounding the high-and-mighty Britney "God Herself" Spears: where is Banana?

- Brit's performance was important to the snake community. It raised awareness for these animals, which people don't typically think of as cute — but they're terribly important animals in the ecosystem.

- Her impact on the designer snake industry is a real thing. A herpetologist and curator for the Wildlife Discovery Center said that when visitors want to take photos with the snakes, he asks them, "Do you want a Britney Spears?"

- Michael Hano, who was in charge of the snake back in the day confirmed that the snake did not have a name, it was indeed a female (despite many experts suggesting that it might actually have been a male) and is currently enjoying her retirement with one of his friends.

- "She was afraid of the snake, but she forced herself to handle it, and she did a really great job."

- The VMA tiger, however, is drop dead (beautiful).

Why men make more than women in Hollywood

JLaw who topped Forbes’ top-earning female star list with $46 million earned only about 71% of what the top male star, Dwayne Johnson, earned ($64.5 million). JLaw would be the 6th highest paid star in the list if it was combined with women and men.

That total amount for women usually includes income from something other than movie salaries. Jennifer Aniston, for example, wasn’t in any big-budget movies last year but continues to make the list because she has endorsement deals.

All of the top 10 male earners are over 40 years old compared to only half the top 10 women earners (which include for example Melissa McCarthy, Jennifer Aniston and Amy Adams).

Women actors aren’t given pay raises at the same rate as men are.

There aren't enough roles for women in the kind of movies that have mega-box office.
