OK, the Sundance Film Festival isn’t stooping to adult movie screenings just yet, but the festival was pretty excited to premiere a movie about pornography, so anything is possible. Actually, our friends at the Sundance Channel were also eager to share with us the photos from the premiere party (co-hosted by DirecTV), celebrating Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s writing and directing debut, Don Jon’s Addiction. He stars as the titular Jon, a Jersey boy who has no trouble picking up ladies as hot as Scarlett Johansson at the clubs, but for some reason still prefers watching porn to participating in the real deal. Tony Danza co-stars as his father — completing that 3rd Rock From the Sun/Who’s the Boss crossover fantasy you always had, right? — and Julianne Moore is a woman Jon meets at a night class.

We don’t actually much to say about the above photos; they are here simply because it is our favorite “Rihanna doesn’t give an eff” look of late. She’s leaving a recording studio in Los Angeles (and yes, Chris Brown left the studio shortly after her) wearing this sleeping-bag-esque camo coat over a loud marijuana-leaf-printed dress. What temperature is it in L.A. these days, anyway? We assume it’s not quite as pleasant as a good day at the beach in Barbados. And as onlookers, we too wish RiRi could be back in bikini weather. Except we always like the idea of her recording more. But maybe NOT with Chris Brown. Basically, we are about as conflicted about these photos as her military-pot themed outfit. We will just shut up now and let you enjoy.
Also, here are some vintage (2012) Rihanna doesn’t-give-an-eff looks:
We’re a little bit confused about the purpose of Emma Stone’s cover photo in W. Not that this is the first time the fashion magazine has baffled us by featuring a cover model in no clothing. I mean, that’s a very stylish bra, and I’m sure if I saw the whole leather jacket she has wrapped around her arms, I’d like that too. But mostly, the vibe we’re getting here is “Emma Stone can be a corrupted, sexy little girl, in addition to all the roles you already like her for.” The messy hair and minimal makeup add to that post-coital look. Inside the mag, she’s wearing more clothing that follows in this punk princess theme. And none of this fits either A) the quirky comedian she normally portrays in real life, or B) the mob moll she’s playing in Gangster Squad.
Not that she doesn’t look good, of course. Also, she makes up for this confusion with this quote about her appearance as a presenter at last year’s Oscars. “It was for best visual effects, so Ben [Stiller] and I had all these funny ideas. Planet of the Apes was nominated, so we thought we would bring a chimp onstage and I’d say, “Oh, it looks so real.” And Ben would be like, “It’s a real chimp.” And I’d be insisting, “Oh, my God — the work they do now is so staggering.” And he’d repeat, “It’s a real chimp.” But apparently, you can’t make the Oscar presentation about a particular movie or else the audience thinks you’re swaying the vote toward that movie.”
Any girl who’s disappointed she didn’t get to bring a chimp onstage at the Oscars can do no wrong in our book. Academy, please make her present again this year.
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are #1! Well, of course, you knew that already, but the latest way they’re on top is a rather convoluted (are there any other kind) list from Forbes: “Hollywood’s Highest-Grossing Romantic Couples.” To come up with this list, the magazine calculated domestic box-office grosses from romantic movies in the past three years. That meant that the Twilight stars were the only ones with more than one movie in the mix. (Sarah Jessica Parker and Chris Noth landed at #4 with only the second Sex and the City movie counted.)
So, yeah, the numbers feel a little awkward, but Twilight’s $3 billion gross (in more than the past three years) was bound to trump the others no matter how you twist things. Plus, it’s a fun list to look at. Here are the rankings:
1. Rob and Kristen, Eclipse, Breaking Dawn Parts 1 and 2, $1.17 billion
2. Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams, The Vow, $125 million
3. Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler, Just Go With It, $103 million
4. Sarah Jessica Parker and Chris Noth, Sex and the City 2, $95 million
5. Julianne Moore and Steve Carell, Crazy, Stupid, Love., $84 million
6. Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried, Dear John, $80 million
7. Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher, No Strings Attached, $71 million
8. Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus, The Last Song, $63 million
9. Zac Efron and Taylor Schilling, The Lucky One, $60 million
10. Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon, Water for Elephants, $59 million.
It’s impossible not to be fascinated by the story of Notre Dame football star Manti Te’o and his made-up girlfriend. Whether he was a victim or a co-conspirator in this whole deal, he’s got to be feeling pretty crappy today. Along with all the reporters who never bothered to check whether the girlfriend who tragically died the day before Manti’s big game last year ever existed before reporting on her death. But we can think of a handful of people who must be positively overjoyed about this story:
5. Nev Schulman, the star of MTV’s Catfish. Since Te’o and his school are claiming this was all an elaborate hoax, he is basically the highest profile victim of a “Catfish” scheme, and now we all know what that means. This is the best publicity for Schulman’s show, which follows people as they find out the shocking truth behind the person they met and fell in love with online.
4. Michael Lohan. We still think he’s a terrible person, but we’ve already basically forgotten yesterday’s story in Star, which quoted Lohan as saying Lindsay was getting paid to date very rich men. He later told TMZ that he was misquoted — Lindsay makes cash for her public appearances, not for escorting dudes — but we had already moved on to this Manti thing. Either way, he benefits.
3. Lindsay Lohan. For a minute she doesn’t seem like the worst decision maker on the planet. Read more…
Since set photos were revealed last year, we’ve had ample time to get over the shock of seeing Disney/ABC Family stars Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson and Vanessa Hudgens (along with fourth star Rachel Korine) traipsing around in bikinis, drinking beer on the street and hanging out with a corn-rowed James Franco. So today, when we finally get to see the full trailer for Spring Breakers, we are nothing but thrilled about this movie’s March 22 release. There are so many things to love: It’s like the second coming of Magic Mike (in that it reminds me why I got the hell out of Central Florida as quickly as possible, and that it’s a lot of hot young things showing skin in Central Florida); it looks both funny and dark; James Franco is appropriately crazy in it, also, Gucci Mane! And we have to say, to the wary parents of college-age kids, we think it might be a good cautionary tale too.
Here are 15 terrible things these ladies do on their wild, restaurant-robbery-funded spring break trip, that we definitely think you kids shouldn’t try at home OR ANYWHERE:
We never cease to be amazed by how photographer Terry Richardson manages to get gorgeous ladies to do the sleaziest things in front of his camera. Compared to some of his models, Beyonce was relatively tame for her “Miss Millenium” cover shoot for GQ, the fruits of which we first saw last week. Judging by the interview Bey gives in the magazine, she keeps a tight control on all things image-related, so she’s not about to put herself in any kind of compromising, Terry Richardson-esque situations. That’s not to say she isn’t hot as hell in it. And as you watch the behind-the-scenes video of the shoot above, you can also tell she had a whole lot of fun romping around in cropped tops and undies, and jumping on the bed with a football to symbolize her Super Bowl Halftime gig.
Wow. This conversations sounds a little familiar: After Taylor Swift ditched her preppy schoolgirl stripes and shorts for sophisticated lady gowns at last week’s Golden Globes and People’s Choice Awards, the tabs are once again calling “boob job!” They did this back in April, when a couple of dresses (and, we think, push-up bras) drew attention to the changing size of TSwift’s bosoms. Today comes a story from In Touch magazine that quotes a plastic surgeon, who has not treated Swift (and now never will!), saying she “received a bust boost back in April,” based on the same photos we’ve all been staring at for too long. Dr. Michael Fiorillo told the magazine (via the Daily Mail) that “you can see the implants” that bring her from an A to a B cup. Read more…
There is so much weird going on in this story, guys. First of all, if you watch the video above, apparently the guys behind the camera bought Amber Rose ice cream to tempt her to talk to them — making it feel like she’s a zoo animal they’re tempting to come to the fence to say hi. Not that we’d be able to refuse Ninja Turtles ice cream either. So then, as the eight-months pregnant model accepts their treat, she says, “My husband loves Ninja Turtles!” And immediately TMZ explodes in a round of speculation about when and where Amber and Wiz Khalifa eloped.
Well, maybe they did legally tie the knot — as Hollywood Life points out, Wiz told Hot 97 last year that he and Amber wanted to make things legal before their son was born, but then have a real wedding afterwards, when she can fit into a dress and drink. Or maybe she’s just messing with them. Or maybe using a figure of speech, calling him her husband for fun, particularly in the context of something silly like TMNT.
Either way, we are going to go steal Amber’s wardrobe now. That “Kapow!” dress is way cuter than anything we’ve ever seen in the maternity department. As is this cute dress (and silly hat) she wore at her East Coast baby shower. (Here’s the one from her L.A. shower.)
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are splitting up, back together, having a baby, moving to Mars … the variety of conflicting rumors we’ve heard about them in the past two weeks is staggering. It’s impossible to tell if any of these are remotely believable, since they all come from “sources,” but we thought we’d round the latest ones up for your amusement, or so you can have an excuse to make the kind of exasperated faces Rob and Kristen are making in the photo above.
1.Rob and Kristen are fighting nonstop and he broke off their relationship just before the Golden Globes. This comes from The Sun, which says, “She flew to L.A. and was supposed to be Rob’s date for the Golden Globes, but he told her he wants to cool it off. He loves her but would rather go back to being good friends so they can rebuild their trust and focus on work after Twilight.” It’s also building off an earlier Life & Style report on their fighting: “Rob is at a point where he sometimes ignores her.
He’ll go out and won’t respond to her calls or texts right away.”
2. But hold on a second, Kristen and Rob were spotted together on the night of the Globes. “Wearing a t-shirt, jeans, and a backward baseball cap, Bella met Robert at Tina & Amy’s private after-party at the Soho House in WeHo!” Perez Hilton reported. She was supposedly a no-show at the ceremony because she was afraid Tina Fey and Amy Poehler would crack jokes at her expense. Read more…
