Remember many years ago, when Planet Hollywood was like a “hot destination” to grab a club sandwich and a diabetes cocktail? One of the highlights of the experience was the placemat, which featured yearbook photographs of your favorite celebs. You would see that certain heartthrobs were as poorly coiffed as you were at 16, and certain actresses you just knew were horrible people looked the part in their cheerleading skirts. It was a 1990′s version of “Stars, They’re Just Like Us”, and we felt better about ourselves.
Well, prepare to flashback to that fantastic feeling. People Magazine has a little featurette about stars before they were famous. Note how Nicole Kidman looks older at the age of 5 than she does now, and marvel at the expert face transplant given to Jennifer Aniston. Plus, there’s something about Brad Pitt makes us wanna “Jump Jump.”
Right off the bat I have to warn you: the audio in the video posted below is NSFW. Not even close. However, I should also warn you that it’s the funniest thing you’ll see all day. See for yourself.
Oh, wait. One more warning: you may never look at mayonnaise the same way again. Okay, I’m done warning you now. Enjoy.

Blind items can be a fun little Hollywood guessing game. In the case of the following blind item, the situation is so outlandish and crazed that we just had to post it. True or not, just picture yourself stumbling upon this little scenario:
A mole was in a club in Tokyo recently and witnessed perhaps the most bizarre incident I have ever heard. It was a very exclusive invite-only club and our mole was with a friend when it looked like it was suddenly ‘snowing’ inside the club. It wasn’t snow at all, but was actually thousands of small white feathers gently fluttering to the ground. His friend went to investigate and came back ashen-faced saying: “Go round the corner and tell me that what I’ve just witnessed is not a dream….
Ladies in the house, let me hear you scream! OK, so here’s the thing. When it comes to sports, there are only a handful of them that I’m passionate about: Tennis, World Cup, anything medal-related, celebrity poker… it’s a short list. But here’s a list we can appreciate: The Top Ten Pretty Boys in Sports. Although putting Johnny Damon ahead of a conspicuously missing Derek “Man with the Face of a Baby” Jeter is like reversing the evolution of man in many ways.
It’s a fun list, but we like to choose our sports crushes with more brains than vagina, such as speedskater Joey Cheek (and let me tell you, you haven’t lived til you’ve scrawled “Mrs. Cheek” all over your Hello Kitty diary, people.) This here list reads more like the Wide World of Hunks! Am I right? Ladies? Hello? Fine, be like that.
Now listen, I’m not SAYING that the recent terror plot foiled by the British government was actually a really clever viral promotion by Oliver Stone and the World Trade Center people… I’m just saying it’s pretty convenient, that’s all. What?
It’s the final PSOAP weekend of our lifetime (that’s Pre-Snakes On A Plane, obviously) and there’s not a whole lot to get excited about. Besides WTC you have the direct-to-video by way of theaters Tim Allen film Zoom, Veronica Mars’ Pulse, and a movie about dancing starring people I never heard of (Step Up). So what are you going to check out this weekend? Vote now!
It’s Best Night Ever for Thursday, August 10th! Dan Hopper is here to walk you through the best of Thursday night tv, including the Making the Band finale, America’s Got Talent, and Wild ‘N Out!
Check out this clip from The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency on Oxygen. First, you have the model they’re interviewing, who I’m convinced is actually one of the Pre-Cogs from Minority Report. Then, you have Janice doing her best impersonation of Alex P. Keaton in the opening of Family Ties, with the kinds of results that are always better appreciated in slow-motion.

Speaking of Pre-Cogs (and how often can you make that segue?), check out this list of Cinematical’s Seven Bald Chicks.
Wow. Just wow.
