Ryan Reynolds Discusses His Recovery After Being Struck By A Drunk Driver

It should come as no surprise that drinking and driving no laughing matter. Just ask Ryan Reynolds. The Change-Up hunk recently opened up about his hellish ordeal after being struck by a drunk driver at the age of 19. “I was at a bar and I had a few drinks,” he told CTV in his native Canada (where the drinking age is 18). “And I thought, ‘You know what I’m going to do? I’m going to leave my car here, be responsible.’ I started to walk home and I was hit by a drunk driver.” It’s stories like this that make us question karma.

And this was no small bump, either. The impact left him in a coma and “broke every bone in my left side. I woke up three days later.” Oh my god, dude! We’re sorry for every bad things we said about The Green Lantern! But at least he had family around when he finally came to. “I remember my dad sitting there [with] a vomit tray. And I guess I had been heaving in my unconscious. And nothing says love like painting someone with three-day-old Gin Rummies. Just soaked the man head to toe in my vomit.” That’s love, Ryan.

He seems to  have recovered, but says that’s not totally the case. “Since then, I’ve been a rickety, broken mess.” He’s gotta be kidding,  because we know a decent number of people who think he’s pretty perfect. Like his old “friends” Sandra Bullock and Charlize Theron, for a start…

Rest In Peace Cha-Cha: The Best Dancer At St. Bernadette’s

This is truly a rough day for classic movie lovers. First we heard that Police Academy‘s Bubba Smith was found dead in his apartment, and now we have even more upsetting news to pass along to you. Annette Charles, the actress best known for playing Cha-Cha DiGregorio in Grease, has succumbed to cancer at the age of 63. Certainly y’all know Cha-Cha, the best dancer at St. Bernadette’s (although admittedly with the worst reputation). Her show-stopping dance sequence with Danny Zuko (a.k.a. John Travolta) was one of the  highlights of the 1978 film.

“Annette had recently started having difficulty breathing, a family member told TMZ, “and when she went to the doctor she learned that she had a cancerous tumor in one of her lungs.” Apparently doctor’s caught the disease too late to prevent it from spreading. You and your insane dancing shoes will be missed, Annette. Let’s hoping she’s tearin’ it up at the big malt shop in the sky.

Matt Damon Vs. Jake Gyllenhaal: Battle of the Bald Badasses

So much is written when actresses chop their locks, but now it’s time to talk about some dudes who went for a dramatic new ‘do. A-List studs Jake Gyllenhaal and Matt Damon have both gone under the razor recently and shaved their domes down to the scalp. It’s not a fashion statement; the men traded in their manes for their roles in upcoming movies. Damon is hard at work filming Elysium in Vancouver, while Jake is donning blues as an LA cop in End Of Watch. It may be a shock,  but the shiny-look is sure to keep them cool in the sweltering summer days still to come. Who do you think wears the cueball look the best? Let us know in the poll below!

Oprah Gets An Oscar Just For Being Oprah

Oprah Winfrey hasn’t been in any movies lately, but that didn’t stop the Academy from awarding her an Oscar! It has been announced that the Queen of All Media will receive an honorary statuette on November 12th at the 3rd annual Governor’s Awards dinner in Los Angeles. The 57-year-old has earned the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award, which recognizes outstanding philanthropic and charitable contributions. Oprah certainly fits the bill, with a host of charities to her name, including her Academy For Girls she recently founded in South Africa.

This is not Oprah’s first brush with the little gold man. She was nominated for an Oscar back in 1985 for her role in The Color Purple, but lost to Anjelica Huston. Is Oprah still quietly plotting her ice-cold revenge on Anjelica? Only Gayle King knows for sure. Also being honored is acting legend James Earl Jones, best known as the voice of Darth Vader. What’ll happen with the Lord of the Sith goes head to head with The Lord of Daytime Television? Stay tuned on November 12th to find out! There can be only one…

Mila Kunis Snaps At A Reporter In Russian And It’s Really Hot

video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player

Combining the sexy bilingual skills of the Bradley Cooper French-speaking video with the raw intensity of yesterday’s Matt Damon teacher-rights video, we bring you a clip of Mila Kunis laying the smack down on a reporter…in Russian! And yes, it’s hot. The actress was raised in the Ukraine and when doing some press for Friends With Benefits in Moscow, she was able to converse in her native tongue. At first it’s funny (and hot…really really hot), as her bewildered costar Justin Timberlake looks on confused.

But the vibes turned nasty (but still hot) when one hapless reporter asked Justin why he isn’t returning to his music career. This rubbed Mila the wrong way, and she went old world on the woman! “Why movies?” she snapped in fluent Russian. “Why not? What kind of question is that? Why are you here?” The crowd laughed, Justin looked surprised, and the internet sighed. You don’t mess with Mila’s JT!

Taylor Lautner Drops $200,000 On Some New Wheels

 
So we guess Taylor Lauter is a car guy. That’s the only way to explain why he shelled out $200,000 for a hot new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG yesterday.  The 19-year-old Twi-hunk apparently walked into an LA area dealership, dropped the cash and drove his hot toy off the lot on the very same day! He even brought his parents along (awww). So for any members of Team Jacob looking to track Taylor down…it just got a hell of a lot easier: there can’t be too many of these whips roaming the street. But good luck trying to catch him, because the Mercedes SRS can go from zero to sixty in less than four seconds, and can reach speeds of 200 miles an hour! Check out the gallery below for a closer look!

Sandra Bullock And Ryan Reynolds Look Very Date-y At Change-Up Premiere

Are Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds sure they’re not dating? Like, totally sure? Maybe they just forgot. We forget stuff all the time. Like that time we locked our keys on our apartment, or that time we were dating that gorgeous A-list actress. It just slipped our minds. Maybe they’re relationship is like that. Because we gotta say that they were quite the adorable couple last night at the premiere of The Change-Up.

Reynolds stars along side Jason Bateman, but Sandra showed up to be his surprise date. Awww. What are “friends” for, right? Yeah yeah, we know Ryan’s supposedly hooking up with that other gorgeous Oscar-winner, Charlize Theron. But it can’t stop us from dreaming, right? It just seems too perfect! See what we mean in the gallery below, as well as hot looks from Jason Bateman, Olivia Wilde, Leslie Mann and Jonah Hill.

Charlie Sheen Is Getting A Funeral On Two And A Half Men

Get ready, because Two And A Half Men is about to get even less funny. The sitcom’s long awaited return to the airwaves in September will feature a funeral for Charlie Sheen’s character. Considering the acrimonious split between Sheen and the production, we bet that the scenes will probably serve as a giant middle finger pointed defiantly at the one with tiger blood coursing through his veins. Revenge is best served cold as a corpse, and at prime time.

We’re also getting an insight as to how Ashton Kutcher arrives at Casa Del Charlie. After the funeral, Jon Cryer puts the Malibu mansion up for sale, and various celebrity guest stars show up for a viewing. Ashton is apparently the lucky buyer, ushering in a whole new era of hijinks. We have no idea why Ashton agrees to take the place with one and a half men still living inside (to act as servants?), but this show could go on forever with this technique. Or at least until Cryer and  half-man Angus T. Jones put a stop to it. Come on guys, you’re our only hope.

Robert Pattinson Bites A Baby, And We Love Him Still

OK, Robert Pattinson didn’t really “bite” a baby, per se. But still, when a fan asked the most famous vampire this side of Dracula (and certainly the cutest) to faux bite her three month old baby, he had to oblige. Rob admitted to a number of bizarre fan requests while being interviewed by Cineplex at this year’s Comicon with lady love Kirsten Stewart. But he says that this baby biting thing totally threw him. At first he wondered if he was supposed to sign it!

“I didn’t really understand the reality of the situation at that point… But there is a picture of me somewhere on the Internet biting this baby.”  We’re sure it’ll surface soon. “I didn’t actually like, touch it,” he was quick to add. “The baby is so young the entire head fit into my mouth.” It takes a special kind of man to make headlines all over the world for biting a baby, and still not find himself with a court case (or even a fan backlash). Rpatz is such a man.

Soulja Boy Buys Himself A $55 Million Jet For His Birthday

For our 21st birthday, we bought ourselves a 40. For Soulja Boy’s 21st birthday, he decided to treat himself to a $55 million dollar jet. Why? Because he’s worth it. To be honest, we’re seriously surprised that Soulja has that kinda cash, but then again, he did write ‘Donk’. His management team, who for some reason didn’t stop him, told TMZ that the young rapper purchased a G5 jet earlier in the week.

The jet itself cost a paltry $35 million (chump change!). But then he spent a further $20 million to trick it out with ridicu-swank accouterments like flat screen TVs, four liquor bars, Brazilian hardwood cabinets, custom tiled floor and 12 Italian leather chairs. Apparently displeased by the claustrophobic inflight potties, Soulja had them replaced with what we hear is a massive bathroom.  Oh, and naturally he had his logo painted on the side of the plane (of COURSE he has a logo, don’t you know anything!?). But that isn’t the end of his birthday splurge. He’s ALSO shelling out $300,000 to hold a bash at a Miami nightclub. Dude, you just dropped $55 million on a tricked out jet…who needs a nightclub!
