But let’s not forget! Before this talented hunk needed to a poncho to protect his suit and tie from the drool of females everywhere, he shined as a child star on The Mickey Mouse Club, and dominated the boy band scene as one-fifth of N*Sync – all while perfecting his synchronized dance moves and making girls swoon. So, in honor of his birthday, we’ve put together a gallery of Justin’s journey into all of our hearts, from his Mickey Mouse Club member past to his very sexy present. Check ‘em out!
Did you read our piece published yesterday of Lindsay Lohan making a desperate dash from New York to L.A. to make her court date? After trying to wiggle out of it by pretending to be sick, and then being photographed in NYC the very same day, shopping and smoking, of course. Did you also shake your head, much as we did, and sigh, “Oh, Lindz …” Well, to answer the question posed yesterday: She made it to court in one piece. We say in one piece because anyone wearing those huge, unwieldy Christian Louboutin platforms in the picture you see above, could fall off them. And also because two hotels in Santa Monica rejected her, and mother Dina Lohan, as they arrived late at night. The Beverly Hills Hotel finally took them in, FYI. As expected, the judge (or Lindsay’s old nemesis, as we like to call her), Stephanie Sautnerbusted the actress’ chops, even saying, “I’m glad you’re feeling better” as a dig towards Lindz’s lame attempt to not fly to L.A. She’s also said L.L. could still be found in violation of her probation, even if the jury finds her not guilty, and has set a trial date for March 1.
So that’s that, for a quick recap. But now we want to focus on Lindsay’s new addition: the tattoo you see on the right. It’s etched on her right upper arm and features a red triangle and what appears to be written, “What dreams may come.” It’s a terrible ink job, we will admit. And really, that’s what you focus on befor going to trial? A tattoo? Any guesses to what the significance of the red triangle and words mean? Have at it it in the comments section below.
Anyone who’s played Khal Drogo in Game Of Thrones and Conan in Conan The Barbarian in one lifetime has to deal with the fact that they have to stay ridiculously ripped forever. Because Drogo or Conan can’t be seen with a beer gut, period. That would break too many hearts. Luckily, the actor to who those roles were bequeathed to, Jason Momoa, seems to be perma-fit. Confession: we used to watch him in Baywatch: Hawaii. In fact, he was the only reason why we watched that show. Naturally, people are curious as to how he stays so buff all the time, because that man was born to be shirtless (sorry, Taylor Lautner.) TMZ found him outside a hotel and peppered him with questions, about his new, shorter, hair for instance. His wry reply was, “I lost a bet.” Then came the workout questions. Does he do cross-fit? Does he lift heavy weights? The response was in the negative to all of them. He finally answered with the best celebrity response we’ve heard in a very long time. Jason Momoa says the secret to his exercise regime is, “I f— a lot.” He said that — on camera. If you don’t believe us, you can see it for yourself in the video above. But wear headphones if you’re at work because naturally, it’s NSFW!
Just last week, the new Mercedes Super Bowl ad was all about Kate Upton washing the swankin’ new car in slow motion. Of course, there was talk of it being pulled off the air because it was too sexy for audiences. Has that talk achieved its purpose? Because the extended cut of the advertisement — see it above — has been released and there’s a lot less Kate in it, and she’s also a lot more clothed! At the same time, we love this ad and you will too, even with Kate being in it for five seconds. Set to the soundtrack of Sympathy For The Devil by The Rolling Stones, the story’s about your regular, everyday Joe being tempted in the form of the always awesome Willem Dafoe, portraying Lucifer. Lucifer offers him everything — money, beautiful women (that’s where a Marilyn Monroe-esque Kate is featured,) fame (he parties and dances with Usher) and the fast life. Will average Joe take up the offer? That remains to be seen. Watch the video!
This one’s going to be a collector’s item. The legendary photographer, Bruce Weber, has shot Vanity Fair‘s 19th Hollywood Portfolio (out in March) which not only features Emma Stone, Bradley Cooper and Ben Affleck on the cover, it has a gorgeous spread of stars — 75 in all — in vintage poses inside as well. All of them were photographed in spots that have been featured in some memorable movies making the areas themselves legendary, much like the films they were spotted in. The bed on the cover, for instance, is the bed that’s part of that famous scene in The Godfather (1972), where the movie producer wakes up with his horse’s head in it. And the bed’s in the mansion used in the film as well, so you have the real deal. Some of these photographers are truly breathtaking. Kerry Washington looking like a gorgeous Old Hollywood singer, Olivia Wilde in vintage showgirl gear, Armie Hammer like a lonely ’50s naval captain with a couple of hours to spare before he has to set sail again — Weber’s put together a portfolio that has the sepia tint of Hollywood nostalgia firmly, but perfectly in place. Bella Heathcote and Eddie Redmayne dressed up (and dancing) like Fred and Ginger with a gorilla in their midst is another sight to behold. Make sure you check out the behind-the-scenes shots of celebrities like Selena Gomez and Brad caught between shots.
If you aren’t tuning into Happy Endings or haven’t yet caught the web series Burning Love(now headed to E!), then you’re missing the magic of Casey Wilson and June Diane Raphael (pictured above with Paul Scheer and director Chris Nelson). The longtime writing/acting team is well known on the comedy circuit, and they just hit up Sundance with their lady buddy flick, Ass Backwards. The stars used a successful Kickstarter campaign to pay for the last five days of shooting, and now we’re able to bask in the glory of their finished project.
EW has an exclusive clip from the film, in which the women take a road trip back to their hometown to battle their childhood enemy (played by Alicia Silverstone, hurray!) in a beauty pageant. In it, they sing along with their CD copy of “Take On Me,” skips and all. The scene is based on their own real life road trip together. “The CDs that Casey brought with her were all scratched,” Raphael told EW. “Les Mis was fortunately or unfortunately the least scratched one so it got the most air time.”
We’ve already been waiting for two years for the alleged Annie remake with music by Jay-Z. Now we’re thinking the movie was destined to take forever so it could feature a different leading lady. According to Variety, while Jay-Z is still penning the musical’s music, Will Smith is still producing and Easy A‘s Will Gluck is directing, Willow Smith is no longer involved. Which we think is kind of good news, since Quvenzhané Wallis is clearly the best choice to play the lead character in the new Annie!
Think about it: Quvenzhané is 9, while Willow is already…oh our God, Willow Smith is only 12?!?! The fact she isn’t even a teen yet and she’s given “Whip My Hair” to the world makes us look at our resume and weep. Okay, so while Willow is clearly still young enough to play the musical’s titular orphan, her musical tastes already seems a little mature for such kid’s fare. Did you hear her most recent song “Sugar And Spice”? Willow doesn’t seems like she wants to be dancing around with a dog and a bald guy. Quvenzhané, however, would bring the same intense, adorable energy to the remake as she did to Beasts of the Southern Wild. The only thing that could make an Annie remake better is if a Best Actress nominee starred in it, right? Right.
We’ve been on our death bed all day, trying to recover from Nick and Jess’s first kiss on New Girl last night. Could that kiss have been any better? On one hand, dear God, no. The heavy breathing? The two small kisses at the end? We aren’t made of stone here, people! On the other hand, there is nothing more gratifying than a long-awaited TV kiss, and there have been a number of shows who absolutely killed it. How do Nick and Jess compare to, say, a Sam and Diane? A Damon and Elena? A Pam and Jim? Using our totally objective (read: highly personal) opinions, let’s see how their first smooch stacked up to the epic TV first kisses that came before:
Earlier this week, we told you about how Miley Cyrus referred to her boyfriend/fiance/superstud Liam Hemsworth as her “hubby” in an interview with Cosmopolitan. The quote sparked an untold number of rumors suggestion that the power-couple have already tied the knot without us catching on. Well, it turns out we missed a crucial part of the interview: She actually straight up said she was married, y’all! “I’m happy I don’t have to date anyone,” she said within the pages. And later on while telling an anecdote she dropped another glaring hint nugget: “‘I’m so happy I’m married, because you guys are so cruel!’”
OK, so she might have just taken a conversational short cut, and what she meant to say was “I’m so happy that I’m about to get married in the very near future.” But that’s kind of a mouthful, no? A rep for Hemsworth strenuously denied the wedding bell buzz to People, saying that they are ”definitely NOT married.”
But hey, reps deny stuff all the time. And it doesn’t explain those Twitpics from Christmas that showed Miley and Liam wearing matching rings. And it really doesn’t explain why those same photos mysteriously vanished soon after being posted! Did Miley and Liam get married in secret? It wouldn’t be the first time in Hollywood history. Head on down to the gallery below and see 20 other famous couples who got hitched on the super DL!
When we first looked at the photos from last night’s premiere of Warm Bodies, we were like, “Look at all the pretty young people! And also John Malkovich!” Then we looked a little closer. Joining the zombie love story’s stars Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer, Malkovich, Dave Franco, Rob Corddry, Analeigh Tipton and Cory Hardrict was a collection of what you might say are supernaturally beautiful stars. There was a vampire (Jackson Rathbone) and some werewolves (Kiowa Gordon and Booboo Stewart) from Twilight. Secret Circle witch-turned-Vampire Diaries werewolf Phoebe Tonkin repped her kind. And some Teen Wolf ladies graced the carpet too.

There weren’t any fairies or angels in sight, as far as we could tell, unfortunately. We also sorely missed the presence of a certain dystopian heroine … but Hoult was very gracious when E! asked him if he’s proud of his ex-girlfriend Jennifer Lawrence, who’s looking like a favorite for an Oscar next month. “Yeah, very proud,” he said. Sniiiffff!
