Ashton Kutcher and Scarlett Johansson are two excellent examples of why procreation is beneficial to society. I mean just look at that symmetry, that bone structure, that, that … hotness. It might be hard to believe, but their genetic awesomeness is shared with a partner in crime — that’s right, a twinsy. They aren’t all identical twins of course, but they are all twins — and that’s a start. Gisele Bundchen (hubba hubba, right?) and the Olsen twins (obvs) grace the list, along with many other celebrities you’ll be doubly surprised to discover. So check out our gallery of 20 Celebrities You Didn’t Know Were Twins and prepare to be amazed. Twice.
Could Thor play the Hulk? Is Saoirse Ronan going to play The Scarlet Witch in Avengers: Age of Ultron? Why did J. J. Abrams pick Englishman Benedict Cumberbatch to play a Sikh in Star Trek Into Darkness?
Earlier this week, we told you about how Miley Cyrus referred to her boyfriend/fiance/superstud Liam Hemsworth as her “hubby” in an interview with Cosmopolitan. The quote sparked an untold number of rumors suggestion that the power-couple have already tied the knot without us catching on. Well, it turns out we missed a crucial part of the interview: She actually straight up said she was married, y’all! “I’m happy I don’t have to date anyone,” she said within the pages. And later on while telling an anecdote she dropped another glaring hint nugget: “‘I’m so happy I’m married, because you guys are so cruel!’”
OK, so she might have just taken a conversational short cut, and what she meant to say was “I’m so happy that I’m about to get married in the very near future.” But that’s kind of a mouthful, no? A rep for Hemsworth strenuously denied the wedding bell buzz to People, saying that they are ”definitely NOT married.”
But hey, reps deny stuff all the time. And it doesn’t explain those Twitpics from Christmas that showed Miley and Liam wearing matching rings. And it really doesn’t explain why those same photos mysteriously vanished soon after being posted! Did Miley and Liam get married in secret? It wouldn’t be the first time in Hollywood history. Head on down to the gallery below and see 20 other famous couples who got hitched on the super DL!

Jessica Simpson confirmed the pregnancy we pretty much all knew about already with a tweet yesterday that read, “Merry Christmas from my family to yours!” accompanying a deadly cute photo of 7-month-old daughter Maxwell Drew in front of the words “Big Sis” written in the sand. It by far surpasses Simpson’s “Mummy” tweet from last Halloween, and also makes us really wish she’d been able to break this news herself, rather than some “friend” who sold the story to Us weeks ago.
UPDATE: Weight Watchers also let Jessica announce her new pregnancy in a 30-second ad, released today. “Being healthy has become a part of who I am, which is great timing, because I’m having another baby,” she says. (WW made sure to add a printed message on the ad that says, “Pregnant women are not eligible to join Weight Watchers. Jessica has stopped following the plan and intends to return after she gives birth.”)
The announcement made us think back to all the other varied ways in which celebrity moms announced their big news to the world in 2012. Here are some of our favorites:
Snooki’s “OMG! I’m Pregnant!” Us Weekly Headline: This is another one we pretty much already knew about before the story was published, but the fact that we could totally hear Snooki’s voice as we read that headline made it more unique than your typical pregnancy story sold to a tabloid.
Amber Rose Follows Beyonce’s Example: Following a couple of weeks of speculation, Amber accompanied Wiz Khalifa to the MTV VMAs this year in a lacy skintight gown and caressed her little bump on the red carpet, leaving no more doubt about their big news. Months later, it looked like Jenna Dewan-Tatum was doing the same red-carpet reveal in her flowy princess gown at VH1 DIVAS, but she and Channing Tatum decided to let us guess for a few more hours before going the typical publicist-to-magazine route.
It’s not easy to pull off red felt and white fur, but there are a few lucky celebrities out there that manage to look hot in it regardless! Yes, it’s Christmas yet again, the time of the year where we prepare for a large bearded man to break into our homes as we sleep. Wouldn’t it be so much cooler if, for example, Katy Perry were to come down our chimney instead? Or Beyonce?! When famous folks dress up as Santa Claus, it provides a really interesting/weird alternate reality holiday. Or the beginning of a festive porno, depending on how you look at it. Head on down to the gallery below to see 30 Santa’s whose laps you definitely wouldn’t mind sitting on! From Victoria’s Secret Angels like Gisele Bundchen, Heidi Klum and Barbara Palvin, to divas like Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Mariah Carey. So step right up and check out the gallery of the ho-ho-hottest Santas around! It’s not only sexy, it’s tradition!

Congrats to Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady! The supermodel and QB took the non-tabloid, low-key approach to announcing the latest addition to their family, baby girl Vivian Lake, who was born on Wednesday.
“We feel so lucky to have been able to experience the miracle of birth once again and are forever grateful for the opportunity to be the parents of another little angel,” the couple announced on Gisele’s Facebook. “Vivian Lake was born at home on December 5. She is healthy and full of life. Thank you all for your support and well wishes. We wish you and your families many blessings.”
We are now immediately wondering whether little Vivian will grow up a tomboy — what with her football-player dad and two older brothers, 5-year-old Jack (Brady’s son with Bridget Moynahan) and Benjamin, who turns 3 on Saturday. Or will she follow mom’s footsteps onto the catwalk? No rush, little one! Enjoy the best of all worlds.
Contrary to the typical patterns of celebrity parents these days, who document their pregnancies with tabloid announcements and nonstop Twitpics and Instagrams, Bunchen and Brady never publicly acknowledged that they were expecting. Instead, the Brazilian beauty was content to be photographed with her ever-growing bump and a knowing smile. Kinda refreshing, no?
You can’t afford this hotness. Supermodel mom Alessandra Ambrosio is the lucky lady chosen to wear Victoria’s Secret’s annual multi-million dollar Fantasy Bra. Or maybe not so lucky, because it probably hurts to wear bejeweled underwear. In the past these pricey pieces of lingerie have run up to $15 million, but this year’s is valued at a more modest $2.5 million…because there’s a recession and all. The 2012 Floral Fantasy lingerie gift set is decked out with amethysts, sapphires, rubies, and a massive white diamond in the center. On the downside, it’s dry clean only.
“It was perfect for me,” says Alessandra, who will hit the catwalk in the stellar ensemble this November at the 2012 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. “I felt they made it for me. It’s very romantic.” The new mother found out she was the chosen angel just three weeks after giving birth to her son, Noah. “I just wanted to scream,” she says of the big moment. “But I won’t lie, I was really worried. I was in total mother mode.” She’s spent the last five months doing some serious workouts to lose the baby weight, and if these photos are anything to go by, we’d say she’s been pretty successful.

With the summer coming to a close we’ve decided to celebrate the only way we know how … by remembering this season’s sexiest celebrity bikini bods. Between all of the Twitter and Instagram uploads and paparazzi shots, there was a never-ending stream of photos of scantily clad stars, so it was hard to narrow it down to just 20 top shots, but we did it! It should also be noted that there were plenty of runner-ups including Aubrey O’Day, Brooklyn Decker, Vanessa Hudgens and Irina Shayk. (And of course, our Bikini Awards runner up, Claudia Romani, whom we didn’t include because she got a place of honor in our Breakout Stars of the Summer feature.) Browse through the gallery of our top pics and vote for the celebrity you think had this summer’s hottest bikini body.
We begin staring at them, wondering if they’re merely the result of a big burrito lunch; then, soon enough, we marvel at their size in proportion to their petite carriers and placing bets on when they’ll pop — yes, we’re talking baby bumps. Particularly those sported by our favorite pregnant celebrities. It’s fascinating how some famous ladies, like Megan Fox and Gisele Bunchen, play coy for months, hiding behind cleverly draped dresses or simply ignoring questions when we know they’d never allow themselves to acquire food babies like the rest of us. Others, like Snooki, Tori Spelling and Vanessa Lachey, flaunt their bumps like crazy, posting pics on Twitter, posing in front of the paps in revealing outfits. To each her own!
But once again, we’d like to make their beautiful maternal bodies into a fun little game to while away your summer afternoon. Guess the celebrity baby bump! And don’t cheat by studying the thumbnails here; that’s just silly.

I don’t think Tom Brady’s latest spread for VMAN, or Tim Tebow’s armpitty pics for GQ, are any kind of special effort on the part of the NFL to draw in new female or gay viewers. A) Wrong publications, and B) that’s a terribly sexist thing of me to say, as I know plenty of women and gay men who love the game. BUT, these sexy shots do go a long way in making me, a non-football fan, begin to see these men as more than the padded-up, grunting things they appear to be on the field. Even when Brady’s doing his best to imitate a Doberman pinscher. Because in the interview accompanying his cover story for the men’s fashion mag, he melts my New Yorker heart with this quotes (via E!):
“I grew up [in] … an environment where people weren’t afraid to express how they really felt or to express their emotions. I’m very blessed to be able to do that because with my two boys — I kiss them a thousand times a day.” Awwww. Now tell us about Giselle’s pregnancy already! Why are you pretending that she suddenly has a beer gut? Still not ready? OK, at least he said he wants to have four kids (doing his part for the gene pool!), and he really does look good in that tux.
