IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Natalie Portman’s Japanese Commercial


Jennifer Aniston isn’t the only celebrity doing commercials overseas. Watch this baffling Japanese ad starring Natalie Portman, not with the bald-head we know and love, but with long lustrous black hair that may not belong to her. Note the scientific explanation of how the hair product works. Does it at all remind you of The Abyss?     (thanks IDLYITW)

Cruse/Lauer 2: Only the Glib Survive


In his latest Tom Cruise roundup, Ted Casablancas informs us that Captain Thetan is interested in another round of spirited debate with Matt Lauer.  Will Cruise finally convert Lauer to the path of Scientology?  Will Matt continue being glib?  Could we get the two into a no-holds-barred tag team cage match with post-partum rivals Brooke Shields and Katie Holmes?  Can the world really handle another meeting of these two awesome minds?

There are so many questions, and only time and the MI:3 publicity department will tell…

Is Kenzie Dalton Having the Best Week Ever?


Nov305b Chad_2

First this One Tree Hill extra managed to nab dreamboat Chad Michael Murray from the clutches of his co-star and now-ex wife Sophia Bush.Then Kenzie Dalton made every pre-teen girl in the country seethe with venomous, near-psychotic envy when she made out with CMM at a charity basketball game this past week. Now the couple are rumored to be engaged, nearly guaranteeing Kenzie a major, reoccurring role on the show.

But after a quick google search we learned that this "18" year old didn’t just get lucky with Chad (OK well she probably did), no, she’s knows exactly what she’s doing. While she’s billed as a model in the press, she’s actually a teen beauty queen with lots of experience beating out other girls to win a prize. Check out her perky Miss Teen North Carolina Contestant photo. That practiced sunshiny smile was bright enough to land her the title of first runner up in the contest. I guess if you can’t be Miss Teen North Carolina, being Mrs. Chad Michael Murray is the next best thing. Let’s see if she can keep that title longer than the last winner.

While You Were Failing To Launch


  • Clooney_1Manwhore George Clooney managed to stave off the advances of Womanwhore Lindsay Lohan, mercifully avoiding the apocalyptic tabloid nuclear fallout that would have resulted.  It’s good to know that Oscar George is above Wilmer Valderrama’s table scraps, whereas Batman George probably wasn’t.
  • A fan threw a syringe at Giants slugger Barry Bonds as he played in the outfield yesterday.  Jeez, whatever happened to peanuts and crackerjacks?

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Naked News Streaker



Yesterday we were treated to a rear-view of super-celebrity Lindsay Lohan.

And today, we bring you the bare naked ass of a complete stranger. Smit Happens has footage of a local news station’s unexpected visit this past weekend from a streaker. Read more about how the event shocked the Dallas news station, and check back here for more brief nudie shots before we start charging you for it.

Pimping Out the Dead



Bob already mentioned the recent advertisement depicting the late Chris Farley in an attempt to sell pharmaceuticals.  But this got me thinking – why stop there?  What other products could use the long-deceased face of some of history’s most recognizable celebs?  I mean, it’s not like they can say "no".  Check out what I came up with!

American Idol
