Quick, does the term “fire log” make you feel turned on, centered, or both? It’s no secret that the names of sex positions are weirdly similar to those of yoga poses, increasing the odds that you and a fellow yogi will get to know each other a lot better after just one class. After reading up on The Joy of Sex, VH1′s Kate Spencer tasked Sex Tape stars Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel with determining whether a move is reserved for the yoga studio, or the bedroom. Read more…

Liv Tyler is sad — at least, according to the Internet. Thanks to the new HBO series, The Leftovers, and Vulture (see Lindsey Weber’s “The Saddest Faces of Liv Tyler, Who Is Always Sad”), one would think that the actress is upset all the time. But when Tyler spoke to VH1, it became clear that she is, in fact, not miserable. “They just picked every sad face,” Tyler said with a chuckle in response to the story. “I challenge them to make a happy face one.”
Here at VH1, we will not let a challenge go unanswered, so we pulled together the actress’ happiest moments from her 20-year film career to prove that Tyler is a happy person. (Check it out the gallery above.)
Rise and shine. The Kardashian family is even closer than we thought, Scarlett Johansson could have a wedding as soon as next month, and spoilers from the next Star Wars film are circulating around the Internet.

It was also a time when some of today’s biggest stars weren’t such big stars yet, and randomly appeared on some of your favorite TV shows. Whether it was a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo or the dominating story arc of an entire episode, everyone from a young Ryan Reynolds to Yoko Ono made a guest appearance on shows as disparate as The X-Files and Mad About You.

Neighbors star Dave Franco is looking for a date, Blake Lively is back to remind you of her physical perfection, and more celebrity news to get you going this Friday.
After a couple falls in love in movies, we fall in love with them. Take Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler, who fell in love with big hair and neon clothes in 1998′s The Wedding Singer, again in 2004′s 50 First Dates, and this in Blended. What we love about these two goofballs is that they’re best buds in real life, with a chemistry that translates on screen. They’re both married with families now, but if they dated back in the day, we would’ve been beyond happy.
