Is Jeremy Renner having a baby with his ex-girlfriend? If so, Tom Brady, Hugh Grant, Jude Law and probably 50,000 other celebs completely understand what he’s going through. According to Us Weekly, the Bourne Identity star was overheard at a Golden Globes afterparty telling Eva Longoria about the pregnancy. Allegedly Renner “was saying, ‘I’m going to fly in when her water break,’” to which Eva replied, ‘I’m so blown away,” thus confirming our belief that Eva Longoria does not actually know where babies come from.
The magazine also claimed that Jeremy and his ex “used to date but it wasn’t serious,” which seems to suggest it isn’t Renner’s most recent ex Jess Macallan, from whom he split in 2010 after four years of dating, who is carrying his child. Which is great, because Renner pretty much burned that proverbial bridge when he badmouthed her to The Hollywood Reporter last year. “That was part of the issue,” he explained in April 2012. ““I was going through the Hurt Locker campaign and she’s like, ‘Where do I get headshots?’” Getting your ex pregnant is one thing. Getting your ex who you trash-talked in public pregnant is quite another. Tom, Hugh and Jude do not feel your pain on that one. Actually, Jude Law might, but do you really want to commiserate with that guy?
As square white dads go, Conrad Bain was one of the best. While he had roles in everything from Dark Shadows to The Love Boat to Maude, his most famous part was that of Phillip Drummond, a millionaire widower who adopts African-American brothers Arnold and Willis after their mother passes away on Diff’rent Strokes. Bain himself passed away Monday night at a retirement home in Livermore, California. No further details about the actor’s death have been given. He was 89.
Starring opposite Gary Coleman and Todd Bridges for eight seasons of the wildly successful sitcom, Bain was America’s favorite uncool old dad from 1978 to 1986. “He was an amazing person. He was a lot like Mr. Drummond, but much more interesting in real life. He was an amazing father,” his daughter Jennifer told TMZ. Nice, nerdy and constantly wearing a cozy sweater, Bain always knew what Willis was talking about.
It just goes to show you that sometimes, having an old dude drool over you in public really pays off. Not most times, of course. Most times it’s just awkward and you have to pretend the next bus stop is yours, but it looks Alabama QB AJ McCarron‘s girlfriend Katherine Webb is the exception to the rule. After ESPN commentator Brent Musburgerswooned over the former Miss Alabama’s striking good looks during the BCS Title game, Webb will be posing for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue this February. Ugh, wait until Brent finds out. Now he’ll never stop pointing out pretty women!
It’s happening. The Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film reboot is happening; according to Production Weekly, the movie allegedly begins filming in New York this April. Seeing as how Bay and his screenwriters have already altered the Turtles’ origin story to make them aliens, it perturbed us to see that the films’ current title is Ninja Turtles. So are our beloved turtles are no longer mutant nor teenage? We fear change! Since we still have a little time before the movie begins shooting, we thought we would make clear what fove changes to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle canon we would find completely inexcusable. Mr. Bay, we know you are reading this, so please…listen to our plea.
Dang, son! Having spent the last few years (and at least one recent Esquire shoot) convincing the world that she is a world-class beauty, Megan Fox is finally ready to get weird in her new Esquire interview. From her intense religious views to her new son Noah to her decision to remove the Marilyn Monroe tattoo from her arm, Megan comes across as an early Angelina Jolie-style odd ball, and we like it. We’d also like to give props to writer Stephen Marche, who brings his own special brand of bizarre to the article. “All that remains of Marilyn is a few drops of black against skin that is the color the moon possesses in the thin air of northern winters,” March writes. Whaaaa? So bring on the vials full of blood, ya’lll! No, that’s already been done…vials full of poop? No, that’s going way too far. Though after reading Megan’s strangest quotes, we wouldn’t be that surprised…
If there are any two things we love more than Anna Kendrick and Jennifer Lawrence, it’s having impure thoughts about Ryan Gosling and throwing farts in other people’s faces. Are we right…ladies? Looks like JLaw and AKen conspired this week to bring our many loves together, leaving only one question: whose “real girl” attitude do we love more? “Ugh – NEVER going to a Ryan Gosling movie in a theater again. Apparently masturbating in the back row is still considered “inappropriate,”Kendrick posted to Twitter on Sunday, which also explains why she wasn’t at the Golden Globes. We (along with the rest of the internet ) have taken quite a shine to the Pitch Perfect’ star’s filthy tweet, though we realize now it’s only as good as the rest of Anna’s excellent bon mots. For example: “Thought for the day: If I were going to take a naked picture of myself, I would at least clean my room first.” Anna’s just saying what we’re all thinking, guys!
We know how upset you where when you first heard they were moving G.I. Joe: Retaliation from its June 29, 2012 release date to March 29, 2013 in order to accommodate reshoots. Oh, sorry. We meant to say: we know how upset you where when they originally moved G.I. Joe: Retaliation from its June 29, 2012 release date to March 29, 2013 in order to accommodate reshoots because Channing Tatum is in it. If you were peeved then, you’re going to be even more peeved now that we know the film’s new footage contains no new Channing Tatum. So basically it was a total waste, is what we’re implying. And by “implying,” we mean “screaming at a dark and unfeeling sky.”
“That is a complete rumor. I don’t know where that started,” G.I. Joe: RetaliationLorenzo di Bonaventuratold Crave Online. “Literally, Channing shot for – if I have it wrong, I’m off by an hour – four hours, five hours? So it wasn’t really about that at all.” Di Bonaventura then went on to explain that the production had shot for three more days, though offered no explanation for why the movie is not just 72 hours of Channing Tatum going about his day. The John Chu movie is still scheduled to drop this spring, though we’re sure we’ll be busy on March 29. Busy crying on a pile of 21 Jump Street DVDs, that is.
We were reminded of Heath Ledger‘s passing in 2011 when former partner and mother to his child Michelle Williams gave a series of raw interviews about the late Dark Knight actor. Williams later said the whole experience, specifically a particularly personal Dateline interview, left her “devastated.” Honestly, we remember feeling more than a little weird at the time about learning so much about their relationship. Now Heath’s parents are opening up about their son as the fifth anniversary of his death approaches, and their new interview, while extremely revealing, at least confirms what we long suspected: Michelle Williams is a genuinely decent, kind-hearted person.
It’s not like we ever suspected the Blue Valentine star was anything but a sweetheart, but you never know with celebs. In what is allegedly their first interview about their son’s death, Sally and Kim Ledger discuss his passing, their granddaughter Matilda and their relationship with Williams. “It has been an extremely difficult five years, as not a day goes by when we don’t feel the immense loss of Heath,” Heath’s mother Sally told Australia’s New Idea magazine. As painful as their loss is, according to Health’s father Kim, “Our family has the most wonderful relationship with both Matilda and Michelle; we talk frequently and visit as often as we can.” Aaaaaaaaaaaaand we are tearing up. As if we didn’t know Michelle was a class act already.
It’s a trick question! They’re both depressing, not to mention terrifically gauche! After reading that bonkers New York Times Magazine article about the film last week, we were all set to see Lindsay Lohan in The Canyons. (Though…is it even going to be released in theaters? It seems more like The Room than, say, The Sessions.) We liked the idea that Canyons would be be a campy bit of noir, but we are out after seeing the movie’s most recent clip. We have absolutely no interest in seeing anyone shove Lindsay Lohan to the ground and scream insults in her face. Could we honestly follow Lindsay’s sad, tumultuous off-screen life, and then be entertained watching costar James Deen physical and emotionally berate her onscreen? Nope! Oh, and did we mention Lindsay’s extremely labored breathing during most of the clip? Not interested in that darkness, thanks! Call us when they make Freaky Friday 2 and we’ll be the first in line, guaranteed!
Jodie Foster ignited an intriguing discussion about celebrity privacy last night at the Golden Globes after giving a kind of, sort of, maybe coming out speech that dealt more with the problematic idea that celebs have to share the details of their personal lives than any specific sexual orientation. Foster laughingly joked that she wasn’t about to put her life on display like Honey Boo Boo, but…what does that make Beyonce? In case you were wondering how in-depth Bey was going to go with her upcoming HBO bio-documentary Life Is But A Dream, consider the fact that the doc’s new trailer contains a sonogram of Blue Ivy. That’s about as in-depth as you can get without pulling out the colonoscopy photos. (Which we imagine Beyonce is saving for the amazing sequel!)
Now, this isn’t to say we have a problem with Beyonce showing off little prenatal Blue Ivy. Obviously we are fascinated by the intimate details of Bey’s life. “I always battle with, how much do I reveal about myself?” she muses at the beginning of the promo. If you ask us, it seems like Jodie Foster and Beyonce are just two sides of the same coin: both want to maintain their privacy, both want to control what the public knows about their life. It’s just that Beyonce happens to be okay with letting us peep the inside of her uterus. If she’s fine with it, so are we. Believe us, if Beyonce didn’t want us to know the particulars of her personal life, we would know absolutely nothing.
