We’re not exactly sure how divorces usually work (We gave up on our law degree to blog about Miley Cyrus’ dogs!), but a year seems like more than enough time for Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore to conclude that they really don’t want to be married to each other any more. Really. Us Weekly reports that Ashton filed divorce papers with the L.A. Superior Court today, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split. We’re not saying his move has anything to do with his months-long relationship with Mila Kunis, but you know how it is: every woman dreams of one day dating a guy who isn’t currently married to Demi Moore. Blame all those Disney princess movies!
According to TMZ, Kutcher isn’t requesting spousal support, and asked that Moore be denied any requests to get spousal support in return. (We imagine that isn’t such an unusual request when both parties are millionaires.) The other reason we’re psyched to see Demi and Ashton’s six-year marriage come to an official close? It’s been almost a year since Moore entered rehab after what seemed to be a drug-related medical emergency. Now she’s looking healthy, hanging out with Lenny Kravitz and kissing 26-year-old art dealers. Seems like the right time to turn the page.
So, y’all know that Ashton Kutcher is starring in a biopic based on Steve Jobs life, right? The working title is jOBS and news has released that it will premiering at Sundance, and will be the closing event at the festival next year, in January. The first promotional picture of Ashton in character as the late Jobs appeared on the Sundance website yesterday — you can see it above — and we have to say our jaws dropped flat to the the ground. Especially if you compare it to the photograph below.
That’s the actual Steve Jobs in a photo that dates circa 1981-82, taken from All About Steve Jobs, which is a pretty incredible site. The resemblance between the two is just uncanny. We’ve been reading reports of how Ashton fits the role perfectly but now we can see it for ourselves. Josh Gad (who plays Steve Wozniak) was right when he told US Weekly last month at the BAFTA Brittania Awards, “Ashton is going to blow a lot of people away. His performance was absolutely transformational. If he looked any more like Steve Jobs, I think it would just confuse a lot of people . . . It’s that uncanny.”
Surprisingly absolutely no one, word came today that Angus T. Jones will “likely” be leaving Two And A Half Men after this season. It turns out, most people’s bosses don’t like when you publicly refer to your workplace as “filth” and encourage people to avoid it. It’s a lesson each employee must learn. Of course, Jones’ alleged departure is really only one sign that Two And A Half Men has run its course. In case you needed more persuading, consider the fact that…
The rest of us get older, but Demi Moore does not. Check out the photo above for proof! The pic on the left is taken 30 years before the pic on the right? Can you tell the difference? We didn’t think so. From her 80s teen movie days (St. Elmo’s Fire, anyone?), to 90s superstardom with monster blockbusters like Ghost and A Few Good Men and most recently staring along side Miley Cyrus in LOL, she hasn’t changed a bit. Except for that bit in G.I. Jane when she shaved her head, we guess. That was pretty noticeable.
Even though the former brat-packer has had rough year with her split from Ashton Kutcher, hospitalization and subsequent stint in rehab, the lady has never looked anything less that completely flawless and fabulous. Can you believe Ms. Moore turns the big 5-0 today? We couldn’t believe it either. The actress has started partying early, hanging out in India along side Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and 200 other friends. Much nicer than last year’s divorce news! In honor of Demi’s 50th, we’ve assembled her 30 most memorable styles from through the years. Enjoy!
There was a huge commotion outside Ashton Kutcher‘s L.A. home yesterday. TMZ informed us that the L.A.P.D received a very worrying phone call from a woman claiming that there were Russian men at Ashton’s house, robbing stuff from it as she was speaking. She said Ashton wasn’t home, and she had locked herself into one of the bathrooms to hide. Sources claimed that the police, who rushed to the scene (in helicopters too, natch), found the whole thing to be a misunderstanding and that the “woman” was nowhere to be found. Three men were, allegedly, questioned but as it turns out, they were probably just workers at the property. Was this a joke of some weird sort? What the hell was going on? We wanted truth, not allegations!
The police have now confirmed that a call was not made to them, but the whole Russians-in-the-house palaver was conveyed through a teletext. The police rep also stated that the message was, in all likelihood, a hoax. Sources now tell TMZ that they’re trying to track down the pranksters. There were three people in the house but no one is a suspect. Crisis averted. But if the cops find whoever is responsible, then there’s going to be hell to pay!
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!
