I’ve been staring at these photos of Miley Cyrus from her upcoming guest appearance on Two and a Half Men all day now. And while you might get hung up on the photo of her in cute lingerie, sitting in bed with a shirtless Ashton Kutcher, that’s not what compelled me most. Something about the other two cute outfits appealed to me on an entirely different level, and I finally put my finger on it. Miley is totally channeling all the ladies I looked up to in the ’90s! She’s got the skimpy floral thing that characterized oh so many of Tiffani Amber Thiessen’s Kelly Kapowski costumes on Saved By the Bell. And then the combat boots and punky hairstyle that remind me of the edgy feminine styles of Courtney Love, Juliana Hatfield and all the other ladies who stared back at me from the pages of my Sassy magazine. I kind of love it. How about you? Enjoy a little Kelly love and then check out the full Miley pics below.
The hot sun, the warm sand, the intoxicating scent of bug spray: yes, the summer time is prime time for hook-ups, both celebrity and original flavor. From the clam-chowder-and-madras-plaid love of Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy, to the surprise engagement of Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger (their wedding is going to be designed by Hot Topic, right?), check out our favorite hook-ups from summer 2012, and wish you hadn’t spent the last three months inside on your computer:
Once you’ve allegedly referred to your friend/former That ’70s Show costar as your “little wife,” chances are everyone is going to start monitoring your dates with a focus approaching laser intensity. (Especially if you, you know, still technically have a wife somewhere.) Such was the case this week when Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher attended a Dodgers game with Mila’s parents. The two are admittedly a super-hot couple, which is probably why Mila held a baseball cap over their faces when they shared an intimate moment. But were they definitely kissing? The pervert in us says yes, but there are plenty of reasons why two adult human beings would hide their love under a sweat hat. For example, maybe the Dodgers politely asked Mila to cover up, as her beauty was distracting them at a pivotal point in the game. Or maybe Ashton wanted to show off his new tongue ring, or…
According to TV Guide‘s latest survey of salaries for TV actors, hosts and judges, the average pay rate has gone down in recent years. The reason, they say, is that a lot of movie stars are getting into TV, and competition is pushing down prices. So, you know, the typical star of a new TV show might only earn $30,000 an episode (tiny tears). Still, there are some mighty impressive paychecks being earned by the big names. Ashton Kutcher, for example, is raking in $700,000 an episode for his second season on Two and a Half Men, and his co-star Jon Cryer earns a not-too-shabby $600,000 per. They’re followed close behind by NCIS star Mark Harmon at $500,000 an ep (yes, that show is still on the air and very popular; ask your grandma). Mariah Carey’s $17 million gig on American Idol makes her reality-TV’s top earner.
But those folks have nothing on the syndicated TV stars. Judge Judy gets a reported $45 million a year, while Joe Brown and Kelly Ripa earn $20 million. David Letterman earns $28 million, and Jay Leno is a bargain at $25 mil. This makes sense of course, since all of the above work throughout the year, as opposed to your typical TV series. But if you’re planning your career, kids, the moral here is that there’s no money in sitcoms — go straight for the robe and gavel!
Today Abraham Lincoln gets reborn on the silver screen as you’ve never seen him before in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter! We’re pretty pumped to watch Honest Abe kick Dracula’s ass, but those blood sucking fiends aren’t the scariest part of the movie. It’s downright eerie how much star Benjamin Walker resembles the 12th POTUS! Those steely eyes, the bushy brows, the Amish beard…it’s all there!
For your viewing pleasure, we’ve assembled the 20 most scarily accurate celebrity portrayals of historical figures. Some rely on insane prosthetic and makeup, like Anthony Hopkins taking on the great Alfred Hitchcock. Others like Jared Leto and Charlize Theron just do totally nutty things to their body. And some, like Denzel Washington as Malcolm X, are just born with it. But no matter how they got there, the end result is always unforgettable. Take a look in the gallery below!
Demi, Demi, Demi. We seem to remember having this conversation with you before: Getting back together with your ex when you’re in this still-fragile, post-rehab state, is a terrible idea. Even though you’re looking sooo much healthier, and you’re doing an awesome job as the producer of Amanda De Cadenet’s The Conversation, we still think this rumor we heard from Grazia magazine (via ContactMusic) this morning, points to disaster: According to an unnamed source, estranged spouses Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher are going on a “sex-free” retreat on the advice of Rabbi Yehuda Berg, their Kabbalah teacher. They’ll be staying in separate rooms and monitored by Berg, the source says.
This is all, of course, still in the realm of gossip and we have no idea if it’s true — but they did go on that camping trip to patch things up before, and they haven’t filed for divorce yet, so it’s within the realm of possibility. But we rather prefer this other possibility, courtesy of Heat magazine (via the Daily Mail): Demi, 49, was getting cozy with our favorite werewolf stripper Joe Manganiello, 35, at the afterparty for the premiere of That’s My Boy earlier this month. No one is saying they hooked up just yet, just that they had “amazing chemistry.” They apparently met back when Moore set to appear in Magic Mike, and stayed in touch even though she dropped out of the project. Coincidentally, Joe split with fiancee Audra Marie last September. So, A) he knows what Demi’s going through, kinda; and B) he looks like Joe Manganiello. Sounds like the perfect rebound to us!
I’ll Have Another was wearing the roses after Saturday’s Kentucky Derby, but we all know he wasn’t the only star of the event, which has become as much about watching the attendees as it is about the horses. As in years past, celebs put on their derby best to enjoy a day of mint juleps and betting. Although there was little sun in the sky, the folks in Churchill Downs were still seen wearing everything from traditional Kentucky Derby hats to some more elaborate and daring headwear. Coco, Ginnifer Goodwin, Cyndi Lauper, Star Jones, Mary J. Blige and Miranda Lambert were among the ladies showing off straw, feathers, flowers and bows on their heads. Even a few male celebs, like Ashton Kutcher, Kellan Lutz and Joey Fatone, joined in on all the hat fun. Here’s a look at the 20 best celebrity hats at this year’s Kentucky Derby.
So, yesterday, we kind of ignored Ashton Kutcher’s fake ad for WorldwideLovers.com (actually an for Popchips), because, well, we just didn’t find it all that funny. Maybe interesting to see Ashton’s attempts to look unattractive, but yeah, not funny. And because that made us dismiss it, we kind of missed the bigger controversy, which really blew up by yesterday afternoon: That the Kardashian-loving “Bollywood producer” Raj is a pretty racist stereotype. After several pundits and regular viewers complained of Kutcher’s “brownface,” the snack company removed Raj’s profile video from its Facebook site. But not, interestingly, from the Youtube video featuring all of the characters.
“The new Popchips worldwide dating video and ad campaign featuring four characters was created to provoke a few laughs and was never intended to stereotype or offend anyone,” said a statement from Popchips given to TheWrap.com. Read more…
Rihanna has made it pretty clear that all the speculation about her love life is starting to piss her off. The singer has blown up at several reporters in the past few weeks who dared ask about her potential relationship with Ashton Kutcher, and now she seems to go out of her way to scare off the press. We get it, it has to suck to have the media all up in your business 24/7. So that has to be why Riri basically live tweeted her date last night with her friend Melissa Forde. She’s trying to throw us off the trail!
“I’m on my first date in almost 2 yearz,” she tweeted before getting dinner with her lady friend at Malibu’s Giorgio Baldi and hitting up the Roxbury nightclub. Judging from her face, Melissa seems absolutely thrilled about it. Maybe she just likes her as a friend? “#datenight my lover for the night,” Rihanna continued, posting a picture of the two together. “What Jah can do, man could neva.” What do you think? Has Rihanna found love, or is she just messing with us? Let us know!
Jennifer Love Hewitt and Mila Kunis definitely take different approaches to being seen without makeup. While J-Love proudly posted an au natural pic to her twitter, Mila was snapped outside of an LA gym yesterday shielding her (still incredibly attractive) face from cameras. It’s OK, Mila, we don’t expect you to wear the Black Swan face-paint 24/7! The actress recently broke our hearts by denying that she’s not dating her former That 70s Show costar Ashton Kutcher. Maybe that’s why she can’t look us in the eye. Check out the gallery below for more lovely celeb ladies who dared to go bare…as least as far as cosmetics are concerned!
