Chris Hemsworth has been traipsing the globe, promoting his one-two punch of summer blockbusters, The Avengers (which had its second week at #1 at the box office and is breaking records all over the place) and Snow White and the Huntsman, which had a weekend-long press junket in London (we were there! more soon!) and premieres there today before its June 1 release. We wonder how his wife, Spanish model Elsa Pataky, feels about that, since she just gave birth to their first child, daughter India Rose, last week. Actually, Chris must feel a little guilty about having to work this weekend, since he wouldn’t even confirm whether India was born on Friday, as Us Weekly reports.
“It’s amazing, it’s really, really exciting,” he told E! News over the weekend. “It’s tough being here and not back with her.” Luckily, it sounds like Elsa had the baby in London, so he didn’t have to go too far to be with her.
As for the name, Hemsworth didn’t have much in the way of explanation for E!’s Giuliana Rancic: “It was just a name we liked, I always kind of liked Indie or Indiana for a boy and she liked India.” So, either they’re big Harrison Ford fans, or they fell in love with my dog India.
There are many reasons one might be hypothetically interested in maybe possibly getting one’s hands on the rumored Tyson Beckford sex tape that is being shopped around, per TMZ. Not only does this alleged tape feature 45 minutes of the model pleasuring himself during a video chat with an unidentified woman, according to “sources,” it also features the chatty 41-year-old talking about how much he hates being confused with fellow model Tyrese Gibson. Which cracks us up, but also, even though they don’t look or act alike at all, we have to admit their similar first names trip us up once in a while. And another reason we’re, um, intrigued: the hints Beckford gave VH1 News about his sex life with girlfriend and Victoria’s Secret model Shanina Shaik in the interview above last fall.
Does this motorcycle also guest-star in the video? Is Shanina the woman he’s chatting with? Or is Tyson in even bigger doo-doo than when he told the U.K.’s Evening Standard that he “created” her.
Tyson’s rep told the site they haven’t seen the footage and won’t comment until they’ve done so.
The outspoken “Skyscraper” star and her fellow Disney Channel alumna kind of make this the pop-starriest judging panel ever (no offense, JLo, Xtina, Paula and, er, Nicole). And at 19, Lovato is certainly the youngest judge we’ve seen on a major talent show in this country. Will Reid be able to hold his own against these ladies? We can hardly wait to see when The X Factor returns this fall. Stay tuned today for more news from the Upfronts!
Though she failed to cash in on the news that she was pregnant last fall (probably ’cause her bump revealed itself too early), it seems Jessica Simpson has found other ways to fund little Maxwell Drew’s shoe fund. According to WWD, People magazine will pay her $800,000 for the first pics of her daughter with fiance Eric Johnson. That’s not quite the millions celebs like Matthew McConaughey and Brangelina have made recently, but it’s still a nice chunk of change. Especially considering the fact that many famous parents, like Jay-Z and Beyonce, have been going the (classier?) route of posting the pics on Twitter and Tumblr for free. JSimps is also going to make a reported $4 million on a “weightloss deal” when she loses those baby pounds, according Us Weekly.
For all her Chicken of the Sea quotes, Jessica never ceases to amaze us with her business savvy. She’s never been a remarkable singer and her acting career fizzled quickly. And yet through reality TV, her still-growing fashion empire and our endless fascination with her, she is wildly successful and never far from the public eye. Already, it looks like little Maxwell’s got a chance to follow in her footsteps. You go, Mama!
I’m not sure what hurts more after last night’s season three finale of The Vampire Diaries, my eyes from all the crying or my neck from all the head-spinning. Like every finale (and yeah, every other EPISODE) the show has given us before, this was a game changer for Elena, the Salvatores, their friends and their enemies. So, if you haven’t seen the episode yet, you definitely should stop reading now.
Though it was pure torment, I absolutely loved how everytime I started sobbing about a character dying, the next scene showed them to be alive and well. Perhaps because of all those twists, I was left feeling just a bit unsure about what went down after all. Here are my biggest questions — and a few answers.
1. Wait, so who’s alive and who’s dead now? And which actors aren’t coming back next season?Read more…
We thought this post was going to be about a wardrobe malfunction when we first saw these photos if Milla Jovovich shooting an ad, reportedly for Nine West, in New York’s Meatpacking District yesterday. But instead, we want to point out something else. Well maybe not instead. Just first. So if you’re reading this post just to see Milla’s butt, stop reading and click on the photos below.
What we’d like to point out is how insanely happy Milla looks as she’s being picked up and swung around by Brazilian actor/model Carlos Casagrande. Even when she sticks her tongue out, possibly after someone’s mistake made them have to reshoot the scene. It kind of makes us want to see the Resident Evil star try her hand at lighter roles.

OK, now back to your regularly scheduled wardrobe malfunction post. We think she’s not going commando but rather wearing a thong. The slightly NSFW closeups in the gallery below seem to prove as much, don’t they? And if you’re that happy and being swung around in a circle by a gorgeous Brazilian actor/model, and also you have the body of Milla Jovovich are you really going to care who sees your butt? Didn’t think so.
We hope, Internet, that you’re finally getting used to the fact that My Girl cutie Anna Chlumsky is all grown up and cracking us up as the ambitious chief of staff to Vice President Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus). When she stopped by the VH1 office to appear on Big Morning Buzz Live yesterday, she looked like she was all business — but she was a whole lot of fun too. Though a stylist helped her choose her outfit for the occasion, she certainly has her own sense of style as well. Asked what, or who, influences her fashion, she told us, “My mom, I’m certain has influenced me. She kind of raised me to dress as much like Annie Hall as possible. And I always watch really old movies and musicals and stuff, so I think that always creeps into however I want to look. I always want to look a little like Ginger Rogers.” Yep, we can see that. Scroll down for deets on this outfit.
I’m sure almost every night in New York and Los Angeles, there is a room that contains handfuls of celebrities, bankers and society ladies clinking glasses and pledging thousands to some cause or another. But, though I have been to a whole lot of those kinds of soirees, I feel like the one I went to last night, a benefit for the Joyful Heart Foundation at Cipriani Wall Street in NYC, is a little bit different from the others. I can’t imagine there are many other events where you would see Ice-T and Coco meet wide-eyed teenagers, Debra Messing loudly promising to kiss a stranger, Samantha Ronson teaching a Christie’s auctioneer how to hold a mic, and Hilary Swank dancing in her seat as Harry Connick Jr. improvised lyrics in praise of Mariska Hargitay. (I mean, it’s no Channing Tatum grinding with Elton John, but still.) And in-between it all we are moved to tears by stories of women surviving rape and abuse, and others fighting for a future where “Special Victims Unit” sounds like a quaint relic of the past on par with typewriters and scullery maids.
Variations of this scene have been going down for years, since Law & Order: SVU star Hargitay decided to make it her mission to heal the kind of victims she’d been helping onscreen as Det. Olivia Benson. And I can tell you from experience (and full disclosure, one of my BFFs works for Joyful Heart) that this isn’t some token cause for the actress. She throws herself into it, and brings her very famous friends along with her. Read more…
According to translations of the French Premiere magazine, it was Robert Pattinson’s idea to do a photo shoot re-creating scenes from David Cronenberg’s films to honor his Cosmopolis director. And by “honor,” we mean remind us how truly freaky films like Videodrome (which inspired the photo above) are, and how freaky Cosmopolis promises to be. The accompanying article includes this prize RPattz quote (via Us Weekly): “Filming Cosmopolis with David changed something in me. … It gave me balls.”
We were thrown into a fit of nostalgia today when we learned that Gil Junger, who wrote 1999’s 10 Things I Hate About You, is going to be writing and directing a sequel, starring Captain America’s Hayley Atwood and called 10 Things I Hate About Life. Apparently, we are not alone in still loving this movie. Junger told Variety that he made more money from the flick last year than he did when he directed it. While we wait to see how on earth you do a sequel to a movie based on a Shakespeare play (The Taming of the Shrew, if you’ve forgotten), and whether it will be any good, we decided to look back at all the ways we love it.
1. The most obvious: It made a star of Heath Ledger, playing tough guy Patrick Verona who is paid to take the formidable Kat Stratford (Julia Stiles) on a date so her strict dad would let her younger sister go to prom.
2. Heath singing and dancing to “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You.” No one was ever so romantically embarrassed. Also, perfect use of a marching band.
