Virtually everyone we know rants and raves about how brilliant Downton Abbey is. However, the very thought of a show that combines stuffy British accents with old-timey clothes brings on a set of yawns so fierce that if our boss were to walk by our desk, he’d think that we had been sleeping on the job (which we have, but don’t tell anyone). Thankfully, the genius minds between the new website Previously.tv —the very same people who brought you the original Television Without Pity!— have discovered the perfect formula to make this snooze session more palatable for boorish louts like us. JUST ADD FARTS!

While this upcoming weekend’s box office will likely be dominated by some combination of Star Trek Into Darkness, The Great Gatsby and Iron Man 3, indie film enthusiasts are exploding with anticipation for the release of Frances Ha, the latest film from director Noah Baumbach (Kicking And Screaming, Greenberg). The film has been scoring strong reviews from big name critics —it’s currently rated 94% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes— but more importantly, it stars Greta Gerwig, an incredibly talented young actress that Hollywood hasn’t quite figured out what to do with yet. She’s been cast in big budget rom coms (she was one of Natalie Portman‘s BFFs in No Strings Attached, and played the Liza Minelli role in the remake of Arthur), but Frances Ha is arguably the first film which fully showcases this naturalistic actor’s many talents. Whether you’re familiar with her work or just seeing her face for the first time right now, here are 5 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Sleep On Greta Gerwig.
Bless you, Michael Bay. The boob- and blast-obsessed Transformers director very publicly fell out with star Megan Fox during the 2009 press tour for Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen, which led to Fox getting bumped from the lucrative series in favor of leggy Victoria’s Secret supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whitely. However, the two have apparently squashed their beef, and Fox has been cast as reporter April O’Neil in Bay’s upcoming live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film, currently filming New York. And, Michael Bay being Michael Bay, he made sure to put the voluptuous star in super-tight clothing and made her bounce around on a trampoline on the set. Man Show alums Jimmy Kimmel and Adam Carolla are no doubt beaming with pride.
Ronda Rousey set the sports and publishing worlds aflame last summer when she appeared on the cover of ESPN The Magazine‘s annual Body Issue. Those steeply versed in the crazy violent world of MMA already knew her name, but her nude cover shot (above right) turned her into a household name virtually overnight.
We feel safe in declaring James Franco one of our national treasures. The enigmatic actor is celebrating his 35th birthday today (so close to 4/20, brah!), and while he is certainly a polarizing figure in many regards, there is little doubt that both Hollywood and the world in general are a better place thanks to his presence. So, in honor of his special day, we here at VH1 Celebrity figured now is as good a time as any to celebrate the 35 Most Awesome Things About James Franco.
Katherine Webb, sadly, has turned in her one-piece and quit the celebrity diving show, Splash. This is disastrous news for everyone who enjoyed the element of charm school classiness and beauty queen sex appeal she brought to ABC’s low-rated Tuesday night reality competition.
We love us some Rebel Wilson! The host of the 2013 MTV Movie Awards did a phenomenal job with her duties tonight, leading some truly hilarious bits while also mixing in some very biting social commentary (that Megan Fox casting couch bit, amirite?). Which is why we felt so bad for her when she suffered the rare double nip slip near the end of her presenting duties this evening! (And not the kind of double nip slip you might have expected…)
Anyone who’s anyone in the movie is attending the MTV Movie Awards in Los Angeles tonight. The show is not only honoring the best movie moments of the past year, but is also paying tribute to the Comedic Genius Will Ferrell, the Trailblazer Emma Watson, and the MTV Generation Award winner Jamie Foxx. That’s all well and good, but what we REALLY want to know is who showed up on who’s arm to tonight’s ceremony?
After taking some well-deserved time off last week, the cast of Best Week Ever is back in the office this week putting the finishing touches on another new episode. While it’s still too early to determine who’s having the Best Week Ever—it’s only Wednesday, you guys, cut us some slack!—castmember and NewNowNext “Host With The Most” Award nominee Michelle Buteau just found out a little secret about a toy poodle that she just bought for her mom in Argentina. (HINT: It’s not really a toy poodle!)
When people say that they “like a nice smile” in a prospective mate, they’re not really being entirely truthful. In actuality, a great smile means very little to most people if they’re not paired alongside an attractive set of teeth. This, we feel, is the great triumph of the new(ish) Tumblr site Actresses Without Teeth, which we think goes a long ways towards exploding the “nice smile” myth.
