June is just around the corner, which means hot temps, the occasional sunburn, and a major influx of movie releases. Many of us will beat the heat by noshing on some popcorn in a overly-air conditioned theater, but in the sea of blockbuster hopefuls, what’s worth our $12.50? What packs the heat, without causing pit stains? Considering the sex appeal of the stars, steaminess of the story, and cling of the wardrobe, we’re counting down a dozen flicks that’ll sizzle the summer months, from lukewarm to piping hot.
12. Sex and the City 2, May 27th: Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis hit the Middle East in 5-inch heels, high-slitted designer dresses, and sparkly turbans. Beefcake and baby-less Aiden returns to tempt Mrs. Big.
It’s hard to think that in 10 years Robert Downey Jr. has gone from being a jailed heroin addict to one of Hollywood’s most wanted actors. It’s also just as hard to believe that he’s been walking red carpet events for 30 years and has yet to pick up a single fashion tip along the way. How is it that someone with such a GQ face always looks like he walked straight out of the K-Mart bargain bin? With the sequel to last summer’s blockbuster Iron Man coming out this Friday, we thought we’d take a look at RDJ’s worst fashion choices.

We wouldn’t blame Gwyneth Paltrow, the lone female star of the first Iron Man film, for directing some ‘tude at her sequel co-star Scarlett Johannson. When you’re stuck basically babysitting Robert Downey Jr.’s character and being buttoned up as Gwynnie is in the film, and your younger, more voluptuous co-star gets to wear a shiny, tight catsuit, you might get a complex. During filming, it was rumored that the pair’s relationship was chilly and then at the film’s premiere last week, they apparently refused to pose together.
But Paltrow has refuted the claims, telling People that it sounds like people just like making up stories about seeing two women fight. “They’re pitting you against each other and I just think, ‘Why do we need to make a problem between women?’ I think that’s the part that’s lame,” she said. “I adore Scarlett. I loved having her on set. She is really funny. She swears a lot. She has a dirty sense of humor. She loves to cook. She’s like a girl after my own heart.” Well that’s nice. Maybe this mean’s there will be a GOOP newsletter guest-edited by Scarlett soon! We can hope.
