Darren Aronofsky‘s Noah debuted in theaters this weekend and we have to say that we were pleasantly surprised by how hot all the Biblical characters were. Look, the Bible says nothing about Noah looking like Russell Crowe or his wife having the porcelain complexion of Jennifer Connelly or that his sons were super hot or that Emma Watson was even there. We’re totally fine with all the liberties that Hollywood took with the age old Biblical tale. In fact, we have some Bible stories we’d like Hollywood to tackle next.
Nicholas Sparks has created an empire from the hopeful yet tragic loves stories you read on vacation or watch after too many bottles of wine. Like Nancy Meyers, whose films always incorporate droolworthy decor, location is key. And Sparks’ films are almost exclusively set on the coasts of North or South Carolina–a nod to his adopted home of New Bern, NC. Over the years numerous titles have been adapted from breezy beach reads into sugar-coated love stories with a male and female lead much too beautiful to be of this Earth.
Like GIFs and sexy selfies, the year would not be complete without a series of memes capturing our attention (and making fun of celebrities in the process). Throughout 2013 there were a variety of viral crazes–some that even warranted participation from the stars themselves.
Raise your hand if you can’t wait to see Joaquin Phoenix fall in love with a mysterious “operating system,” voiced by the silky notes of Scarlett Johansson! We all bring technology to bed with us each night, so referring to your iPhone/tablet/laptop as a significant other is only the next logical step towards living like the Jetsons. Her, Spike Jonze‘s story of an unlikely relationship between a man and his machine, hits theaters today, promising gorgeous, sun-soaked shots and lots of Joaquin smiles.
Some celebrity couples are bigger than the sum of their parts. Even after they’re kaput. For these dynamic duos, it doesn’t matter how many years have passed since the breakup, how many marriages they’ve endured, or how much their star has risen or fallen — we’ll always root for them stop being silly and get back together, already. Honestly, is there anyone more right for Ryan Gosling than Rachel McAdams?
Can’t stop staring at the odd hair that’s suddenly popped up on the face of your male coworker or Instagram crush? No, it’s not the onset of late puberty, but rather a sign they’re participating in Movember, the men’s health event that’s been bringing mustaches to the forefront since 2003.
Seduction, concern, surprise, modesty, suspicion, intelligence — what part of Ryan Gosling’s anatomy can convey all these things in less than a second? Those delightfully scruffy eyebrows of his. As anyone who’s indulged in a Gosling meme or browsed through a collection of his red carpet photos can attest, the Gos loves to use his eyebrows to their fullest effect in front of the camera. Today, as the brows — and Ryan — turn 33 years old, we thought we’d give them the attention they deserve.
Is Ryan Gosling going to be single again soon? Did Michelle Monaghan give birth to a boy or girl? Which Subway sandwich wins The Hunger Games?
It must be really hard for celebrities to have their break ups splashed on gossip sites (like this one), but it probably isn’t hard to rebound with another famous hottie. I mean, when most of us are nursing a broken heart, all we get to do is shoot some tequila and make out with the least ugly single person we can find in a dive bar. When celebrities are on the rebound they have their pick of the litter: supermodels, movie stars, back-up dancers and the grown up children of other gorgeous celebrities.
Most people want to look their best at all times, but for famous and beautiful actors and actresses to make an impression on the big (and sometimes small) screens, they like to ugly it up. The problem is that some of them just aren’t believable as “ugly people.” So, we’re ranking and celebrating the celebrities who went “full ugly.”
