FABlife’s DVD Pick Of The Week

The Invention of Lying

Ricky Gervais is a comic genius. He created “The Office” and–as you’ll know if you watched the Golden Globes–does rude better than Don Rickles. He’s also short, squat and has the scariest fangs outside of “True Blood.” Oh, he’s English, too. Can he make it this side of the pond with audiences who don’t watch BBC America? The follow-up to the rather charming Ghost Town starts out as a high-concept gag machine, with Gervais as the only fibber in a world where people are compelled to tell the truth. Soon he’s using his silver tongue to get whatever he wants … well, almost everything. Gervais has wisely surrounded himself with pros, which means Rob Lowe has fun doing his rude straight talker routine and Jennifer Garner simpers nicely as the girl.

Extras: The usual making of and testimonial featurettes are accompanied by an interesting podcast and documentary on Gervais sidekick Karl Pilkington‘s trip to U.S.

The Hottest Awards Season Accessory: Golden Globes


Tonight the Hollywood Foreign Breast Press Association recognized actors and filmmakers at the 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards. Tinseltown’s sexiest were on the red carpet, including Halle Berry, Christina Hendricks of “Mad Men,” and PreciousMariah Carey. But we hardly noticed their designer gowns, gigantic jewels, and flawless makeup, because we were too busy focusing on that other enormous accessory of the evening: their, uh, globes. Plunging necklines were abound tonight and we’ve got photographic evidence. Warning: lovely ladies lumps and bumps ahead. [Photos: Getty Images]

Julia Roberts Trashes NBC Live On The Air

The best moment at tonight’s Golden Globes didn’t happen inside the Beverly Hilton. Nope, Julia Roberts took the crown on the red carpet, while chatting it up in an interview with NBC’s own Billy Bush before the show began. The actress, along with pals Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, screeched out a birthday wish to Michelle Obama, and then blurted out to Bush, “NBC? You guys are in the toilet right now!”

We’re certain the star was referencing the current drama between Conan O’Brien and Jay Leno, and we admire her bluntness, even if it may have been influenced by a few glasses of champagne in the limo ride beforehand. But the best part of all is that NBC – who aired the Globes – has embedded the video of her dissing the network for all the world to see. They’re either in on the joke, or they don’t get it at all.

Are Jen And Gerard Doing It, Or Not?


Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler looked thisclose at tonight’s Golden Globes. Sure, champagne can make even mortal enemies canoodle, but these two seemed awfully touchy-feely, both while sitting together during the ceremony and backstage in the press room (pics below). While they may just be trying to build buzz for their upcoming flick The Bounty Hunter, we kinda like seeing Jen let down her guard a bit and get giggly with her hunky co-star. Did you see how much leg she was flaunting tonight? Surely she was showing off for someone special, right? [Photo: NBC]

Sandy And Meryl Ready To Battle For Best Actress Oscar


Sandra Bullock and Meryl Streep may have kissed at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards (they tied for Best Actress, natch), but it’s about to get nasty. Both are leaving the Golden Globes with a statue in hand – Sandy for Best Actress in a Drama, Meryl for Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical – which can only mean one thing – they’re the two top contenders for the Best Actress Academy Award. Gulp.

We caught the gal pals in the press room at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, and they were buddy-buddying it up big time. But Sandy has yet to snag an Oscar nom, and Meryl hasn’t won since 1982, for Sophie’s Choice. Think these two classy ladies can remain civil, or will the race to the Oscars get nasty?

Men Show Off Manners, Rain-Soaked Tuxedos At Golden Globes


Sure, the women looked gorgeous in their Golden Globes gowns, but it was the guys who stole our hearts. After all, nothing says sexy like a rain-soaked tuxedo and a thick head of slicked-back hair. And they showed their manners too – did you see how many of the fellas politely held umbrellas for their lovely ladies on the red carpet? Now that’s sexy.  [Photos: GettyImages]

Julianne Sizzles At The CCMAs, Fizzles At Golden Globes


Julianne Moore stunned in red at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, but showed up at the Golden Globes red carpet tonight looking like she grabbed the nearest Hefty bag and spiced it up with some electric tape around the top. And that seam..ugh, that seam! It gives her entire body a serious case of camel toe. We once saw the actress at our local pharmacy in cargo pants and a hoodie and we were still wowed,  so it takes a lot to make this beauty look busted. We’re already looking forward to some fashion redemption at the Oscars red carpet. It can only get better from here, Jules!  [Photos: GettyImages]

Meryl Streep: My Daughters Don’t Take My Advice

Meryl Streep

Critics’ Choice Movies Awards Best Actress winner Meryl Streep has two daughters who are pursuing acting careers of their own. We asked the stunning star what kind of advice she’s offered them, and it turns out they aren’t all that interested in what their Oscar-winning mama has to say. “They don’t ask me for advice, they give me advice,” reveals the Julie and Julia star. “‘Don’t wear that,’ stuff like that. But I’ve told them, don’t do anything you don’t want to do, which is good advice for anybody in any profession.”

“Actors just have this,” she says, pointing at her body, “it’s all they have. You’re very vulnerable, as an actor. And tough stuff comes your way. I hope they hold on to their love of it. God knows I encouraged them to enter the sciences, or anything else, But they love it, they’re wonderful and both my daughters who are being actresses now are very talented and very different from each other. ”

Meryl, we’ll take your advice any day. Adopt us, please? And while you’re at it, can you teach us how to make our skin glow like yours?
