Even that tiny dog can’t believe he’s being held by Ryan Lochte. First he gets to wear a teeny shirt and be on TV, and now this! While we’re still waiting to see that alleged Ryan Lochte nude pic (and we will wait for eternity), at least we have these photos of the Olympian cuddling a little pup to tide us over/print out and pin to our vision boards. Ryan stopped by Access Hollywood Live this morning and had the honor of holding rescue pooch Woody. We’re betting they get a huge rush of people wanting to adopt pets…or Olympic gold medalists. You…you can’t do that, can you? Legally? Jeez, alright. We just wanted to ask!
As if the adorable puppy kisses weren’t enough, Ryan seems pretty pleased that he dodged the Prince Harry nude photo scandal earlier this week. “His people came over to my table and said, Hey, Prince Harry wants to meet you,’” Ryan told Matt Lauer on the Today show this morning about meeting the gregarious royal in Vegas. “I was like, ‘Alright, yeah, let’s go meet him.’ So I went over there, met him. I was, like, fully clothed, so was he. He was like, ‘Hey, you want to do somethin’?’ I was like, ‘What?’ He was like, ‘You want to race me in the pool?’ I was like, ‘Alright, let’s go.’ I just took off my shirt, and we jumped in, and we just started racing.” After hanging out with Harry poolside, it’s probably for the best the prince didn’t ask Ryan up for a game of strip billiards. “I’m kinda happy. I don’t need that,” he laughed about dodging a naked bullet. Not with these golden puppy P.R. moments, he doesn’t!
We begin staring at them, wondering if they’re merely the result of a big burrito lunch; then, soon enough, we marvel at their size in proportion to their petite carriers and placing bets on when they’ll pop — yes, we’re talking baby bumps. Particularly those sported by our favorite pregnant celebrities. It’s fascinating how some famous ladies, like Megan Fox and Gisele Bunchen, play coy for months, hiding behind cleverly draped dresses or simply ignoring questions when we know they’d never allow themselves to acquire food babies like the rest of us. Others, like Snooki, Tori Spelling and Vanessa Lachey, flaunt their bumps like crazy, posting pics on Twitter, posing in front of the paps in revealing outfits. To each her own!
But once again, we’d like to make their beautiful maternal bodies into a fun little game to while away your summer afternoon. Guess the celebrity baby bump! And don’t cheat by studying the thumbnails here; that’s just silly.

Let’s see. A constantly shirtless playboy Olympian…who hangs out with Prince Harry…who had his own nude photo scandal just this morning. Yup, the only surprising thing about the alleged Ryan Lochte naked photo being offered to the highest bidder is the fact that it took this long for it to show up! And by “this long,” we of course mean “the few hours it’s been since Prince Harry’s nude photo scandal broke.” Those guys are like two naked peas in a luxury hotel pod!
Perez Hilton reported that the photo in question had been sent to Ryan’s former girlfriend in college. We know! We’d assumed it was from some naked pool game with Prince Harry too! Perez’s description of the image, however, does give us pause: “And although you can’t see his face in the FULL-FRONTAL shot, pretty much everyone will be able to recognize his body now that it was broadcast all over the world during the games…AND you can even see the tan line from his speedo!” Hmmm, we just hope we aren’t being tricked into looking at some other hot, ripped naked guy. We won’t stand for it! Looks like we’re going to have to do some intense side-by-side scrutiny of the supposed Ryan Lochte photo once it gets revealed. You know, just to make sure it’s legit. It’s like we’re a bunch of perverted detectives!

As much as we’re pleased to see every single glimpse we can of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones movie shoot — coffee shop Java Jones has come to life! Clary runs through the streets, probably after getting her mom’s frantic phone call! Jace wears a hoodie! Simon looks confused and sweet in his huge glasses! — we’re even more thrilled to hear reports about how the fans are being treated in Toronto. Judging by the tweets, Tumblrs and reports on TMISource.com from the lucky Canadians stalking the set, Rob Sheehan (Simon), Lily Collins (Clary) and Jamie Campbell Bower (Jace) have been smiling and waving at them for the past three days, and Lily and Rob have stopped many times to sign copies of their books. The movie’s publicist has let them photograph the shoot a bunch (though at times they asked them to wait until later to pub them), and the screenwriter even paused to chat. This is all welcome news for a fandom that’s been used to being in touch with author Cassandra Clare practically 24/7 as she simultaneously tweets and writes.
In other TMI news, it was announced early this morning that German star Elyas M’Barek was cast as a “vampire lieutenant” in the movie, though definitely not New York vampire leader Raphael, and Harry Van Gorkum will play werewolf Alaric.
Here’s our gloriously growing gallery of set pics, courtesy of both pros and fans:

This is the same woman who played Virginia Woolf! And Diane Arbus! And is about to play Grace Kelly! Which is probably why we’re so into Nicole Kidman‘s reinvention as a southern-fried sex kitten (a regional delicacy!) for Lee Daniels‘ The Paperboy. It looks like Nicole is even more into than we are, however, seeing as how she got topless and bottomless for her trashy-hot V Magazine cover. “I don’t really make decisions,” Kidman says in her interview. “I go with the flow. If I were a strategically minded person, I think I would have a far different career. But I would be more outlandish if I could. A lot of times you just don’t get the chance.” Yeah, considering Nicole’s won an Academy Award, this definitely qualifies as outlandish. Peeing on Zac Efron was just the beginning!
To be honest, the rest of Nicole’s Mario Testino-shot spread is even more revealing than her cover, and by that we mean Nicole is totes wearing a see-through bra. Meanwhile, director Daniels takes a moment to describe an aggressive sex scene between John Cusack and Kidman that takes place on top of a washing machine. Consider us scandalized. “At a certain point, I saw the bruises on her legs. So I said, ‘Nicole, are you okay?’ She lied. ‘I’m fine,’ she said. She wasn’t fine. I could see the bruises. But she kept going,” he says. Whaaaaa? Of all two people in the world! While we rewatch Cold Mountain and shake our heads, you can click the jump to check out the full cover, and that Academy Award-winning booty:
After years of waiting and hoping and fantasizing that everyone from Taylor Kitsch to Robert Pattinson would take on the role of Finnick in the Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire, Lionsgate has at last put us out of our misery and announced who’d get the highly coveted part: Sam Claflin. After playing Prince Charming in Snow White and the Huntsman, he certainly made a number of people’s wish list to take on the role of the flashy, handsome and surprisingly lovelorn District 4 tribute. (And man, we’re glad someone’s getting a happily ever after out of SWATH.)
Does he have the kind of depth to play this unlikely revolutionary hero with a knack for spearing people with his trusty trident? Tell us what you think. Here’s a little gallery that will certainly help his case:
Remember begging your parents to let you shave your initials into your head, or dye your hair purple, or wear your pajamas to the drug store during the summer? Why not, right? You didn’t have to go to school! You could finally taste glorious freedom! Your parents probably said no, but that’s because they weren’t fashion-forward millionaires with a huge children’s clothes budget. We’ve noticed a lot of celeb kids busting out edgier looks than usual this summer, and as such thought it was time to give a shout-out to the famous children who are leading the sartorial pack. From Willow Smith to Lourdes Leon, Maddox Jolie-Pitt to Julez Knowles, these kids are walking to the park like their walking down the runway. Kingston Rossdale in particular makes us want to reconsider every single one of our outfits. And our glasses. And our hair. And the fact our shoes don’t always have dinosaurs or bugs on them…

We’re guessing “summer vacation” means something different when mom and dad can whip you off to St. Tropez or Maui any time of year, but it still means something for celebrity kids, judging from the fun pics we’ve seen. School’s out, mom and dad take you to the park, the beach, the yacht, the private jet, and you get to play all you want. For some little ones, like Jessica Simpson’s daughter Maxwell or Hilary Duff’s son Luca, everything about summer must be new and fun, and the paparazzi don’t have anything on mom’s need to capture their every move. Jennifer Hudson’s and Gwen Stefani’s sons had to squeeze their fun in with their parents’ busy work schedules. Kids like Matilda Ledger and Sean Federline got to spend some quality time with their moms’ significant others. And we’re happy to see that even the children of newly split parents, like Suri Cruise, and Heidi Klum and Seal’s brood, were able to enjoy some carefree moments in the sun.
One thing’s for certain: Whatever these famous offspring were doing for the past three months, it was way more fabulous than our own summer pastimes. See for yourself…

We’re glad that Jennifer Aniston is doing her part to demonstrate how woman walking around in their bras isn’t always sexy. Sometimes it’s sexiness combined with confusion and despair, like in college when the fire alarm would go off in the middle of the night and you’d be forced to stumble out of your dorm in a half-dressed panic. Celebrities: they’re just like us at our most confused! To wit, Jen paired her undergarments with a distraught frown on the set of We’re The Millers this weekend, though now that we look at these photos again…it sure doesn’t look like they’re actually shooting a scene. Is Jen just waiting around with her top open for no reason? Is her outfit part of the movie at all? Man, Just when we thought we couldn’t like her more!
Maybe Aniston is just ambling around with her lady parts out to distract the media from her engagement ring…or lack there of. People has been trying harder to get photos of Jen’s rock than we’ve tried to do anything in our lives, and on Friday they may have struck pay dirt, seeing as how Aniston was snapped leaving a movie theater in North Carolina wearing a plain gold band. Wow, did Jen go for something understated rather than a giant rock? A simple gold ring and a shirt unbuttoned to the waist: looks like we have a new style icon to emulate1

We can’t believe it’s been nearly five years since Kim Kardashian dropped trou for Playboy. We feel like it was only yesterday she was telling Glamour that she posed nude for the “independence,” claiming “I was always by the book, such the straight arrow when it came to pleasing my parents and being a good daughter.” Oh wait…that was just last year. Okay, so Kim has been getting a leverage from her various nude exploits for a long time. “These pics are from behind the scenes at my Playboy shoot back in 2007. Charlene Roxbourough styled me, Matt van Leeuwen did my makeup, Clyde Haygood did my hair and Hype Williams shot it!,” she posted with the photos. Based on the vintage pics, it seems like there were three key ingredients to Kim’s superior Playboy cover:
