Jay Baruchel and Alison Pill getting engaged back in 2011 was kind of awesome. Like the perfect indie union of two slightly dorky, souls. Alison’s reaction to that embarrassing incident of tweeting her own topless picture by accident made us love her even more. Besides us being complete The Newsroom fans, of course. So two hear that these two crazy kids weren’t going to end up together, after all of that, made us really sad. Baruchel and Pill are no longer engaged, and have also split up. What an awesome wedding it was going to be too, considering the actor told US Weekly early last year that they were, “… getting married at an ice wine vineyard. Me and the groomsmen will all be wearing kilts! We’ll be welcomed in by uilleann pipers. It will be a very small, 70 person wedding, just friends and family …I’m really excited to see all the…hairy, chubby legs. I just hope my groomsmen wear underwear!” Sources say that their schedules and the long distance relationship thing took its toll, revealing, “Working and living in Canada is something that [Baruchel] is very passionate about. He wanted her up there more often, but she really likes Newsroom and the opportunities that are there for her. They were doing the long distance [thing] a lot.” Not too late for a reconciliation, guys!

These days, you don’t know you’ve made it until someone’s shopping around a nude photo or sex tape of you — whether or not you actually made one. In 2012, we were surprised to see the sheer variety of famous people whose intimate moments and communiques were leaked, or threatened to be. Olympians, actors, princes and pop stars were all subject to exposure, much to our simultaneous horror and delight. We hope this doesn’t humiliate them anew, but we decided to recap them all here, in their many flavors:
The Leaks We Saw (and Sometimes Wish We Could Unsee):
Hulk Hogan’s Sex Tape: The weird lighting, the full sushi belly, the ringtone from his daughter’s single — so much about Hulk’s tape with Heather Clem is humiliating in its own right. But when you add the fact that it was allegedly taped by Clem’s husband, Hulk’s pal Bubba the Love Sponge, it reaches new levels of ick. No wonder Hogan originally said he didn’t remember any of this going down. We’d like to forget it too.
Prince Harry’s Strip Billiards: Here is someone we actually wouldn’t mind seeing full-monty. Except it’s kind of unfair that he was snapped while obviously drunk and unawares in the middle of a game of strip billiards in Vegas. The photo was unsatisfyingly blurry, and we felt really bad about the reaming out his grandma probably gave him.
Miley Cyrus in a Bathtub: This tastefully done nude was apparently shot by a professional photog friend of Miley’s a couple of years ago and intended for fiance Liam Hemsworth’s eyes only. That makes the gift a little less special, so it makes us a little sad.
Gymnast Danell Levya’s Sexxxy Bathroom Pics: A disgruntled ex paramour shared a handful of photos with Deadspin at the height of the U.S. Olympic gymnastics team’s fame. If the whole sports thing doesn’t work out, it looks like someone has a future in underwear modeling! Read more…
Throughout the year we try our very best to bring you the sexiest celebrity pics that the internet has to offer. But with today being Christmas and all, we knew that we really had to step up our game and go even better to give you the gift of glam. That’s why we’ve painstakingly scoured the web to track down the 50 hottest Twitpics and Instagrams of the entire year! Don’t worry, we weren’t doing anything today anyhow. 2012 has been a great time for social media savvy celebs, as more and more stars can’t resist the chance to give their fans a little sneak peek into their lives (and dressing rooms). All your favorites are in here, from Pop Queens like Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Beyonce, to Booty Queens like Coco, Kim Kardashian, Angela Simmons and Adrianne Curry. If there’s a famous person that you want to see with very minimal clothes, well then you’re in luck dear friend! Have another bite of figgy pudding and head down to the gallery below. Merry Christmas and happy new year, folks!
Summer 2012 may now officially be over (RIP), but twitter is still just has hot as ever thanks to these lovely ladies! Sexy social media savvy stars like Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga and so many more can’t get enough of showing off their hot bods to their adoring followers, and treated us to some sizzling pix this month. Adrianne Curry actually raised money for charity by offering to post scandalous pix, while Kim K just does it because…that’s what she does. Riri and Gaga debuted their new tattoos and Amber Rose debuted her baby bump. Folks like Miley Cyrus, Heidi Klum and Maria Menounos tweeted direct from the red carpet, but Courtney Stodden seemed to tweet mostly from her own bathroom! Sometimes the flashes were totally unintentional. Just ask The Newsroom’s Alison Pill, who “accidentally” sent a topless photo to her fans. At least she handled it like a champ! Fellow TV star Sofia Vergara also sent out a hot oops photo, revealing the extent of her wardrobe malfunction. It’s all there to see in the gallery below!
In this day and age, what famous person hasn’t inadvertently shown America their naked parts? Sure, maybe other celebs like Scarlett Johansson and Christina Hendricks had their photos hacked or leaked where as The Newsroom‘s Alison Pill just…accidentally tweeted one to the the entire Internet herself, but the effect is still the same. “Yep. That picture happened. Ugh. My tech issues have now reached new heights, apparently. How a deletion turned into a tweet… Apologies,” the actress explained via Twitter this afternoon…like a boss.
Because isn’t that the correct attitude for a celeb to take after the world sees a private photo, perhaps one intended for her fiance Jay Baruchel? “Oh, my bad. Just naked for a minute. Sorry about that!” This is the Internet, people! We’re all going to have naked photos floating around eventually! Maybe Alison was especially blase about her accidental flash because, as Egotastic points out, she already went topless in 2005’s Dear Wendy. Can the majority of the naked people on the web say as much? We’ve never seen Dear Wendy, but we assume not. We would have heard about a movie where millions upon millions of people took their shirts off.
It’s no surprise that when Jay Baruchel proposes, the moment would be awkward, hilarious, adorable and aggressively Canadian. The Apatow apprentice revealed to ET Canada—figures!—that he got engaged to girlfriend Alison Pill, a fellow Canuck, over Christmas. “I was going to give her a ring, and I wasn’t sure,” told the show. “I wasn’t ready in my heart to say what it was…When I gave it to her, I just said, basically, ‘S— or get off the pot.’ I said, ‘F— it, will you marry me?'” Whether he told Alison or himself to ‘s— or get off the pot,’ that story is completely awesome.
While not a star yet, Pill, 25, should be recognizable to anyone who saw her steal scenes as a lesbian campaign worker in Milk and as the grumpy drummer in Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World (she was also in Confessions Of A Teenage Drama Queen, LiLo fans!). Now if only they’d get out of Canada and show up on the red carpet together—we need some PDAs!
