It’s TLC week here at VH1, so we thought we’d get in on the action Celebrity-style, in honor of the group’s most biting song, “No Scrubs.” The world is full of guys who think they’re fly, always talking ’bout what they want and sitting on their broke asses. What’s amazing is when highly successful, beautiful women fall victim to these men (who, OK, aren’t necessarily broke, but they’re morally bankrupt, at least). Well, at least the women on this list finally took TLC’s advice and told them, basically, to stop hollering at them. Read more…
Also, is Gwyneth leaving her kids hungry? And who is going to be romancing Natalie Portman now that Michael Fassbender has dropped out of his role in Jane Got A Gun? All this and more in today’s Last Lap.
Is Side Effects the bizarro version of The Vow? The Vow plus Memento? A woman happily married to Channing Tatum suddenly doesn’t remember what happened to her during a specific dark period of time, only instead of Rachel McAdams, the wife is played by Rooney Mara. And instead of amnesia, she has…whatever kind of amnesia allows Jude Law to turn you into an unknowing homicide machine. We honestly aren’t sure if that’s the correct plot (or, frankly, even close to the plot) after watching the film’s trailer, but the important thing to keep in mind when thinking about Side Effects is Channing Tatum. Dreamy soft-focus Channing Tatum, joined later by furrowed-brow possible-husband-of-a-murderer Channing Tatum. There’s also some sexy business and at least murder going on, but mostly? Channing Tatum.
Side Effects is allegedly one of Steven Soderbergh‘s last features before the director retires from the moviemaking business forever, the other being the Liberace biopic Behind The Candelabra. The man is going out on top! Soderbergh also filmed Channing for Magic Mike, so we’re guessing he knows what the fans want out of a Channing Tatum sexy murder movie: shirtlessness, wall-punching, pelvic thrusting if and when appropriate.
Some fathers know best, and other fathers know hookers. Some fathers play golf, and others play the field. Some dads mow the lawn, and others mow down mailboxes with their Mercedes while drinking and driving. Some fathers make plans to take their wives out for dinner, while others make plans to “take their wives out.” And then there are some dads who pretend they’re not dads at all! Think we’re kidding? We wish.
It’s safe to say that not all fathers know best. Just look at Michael Lohan, Jon Gosselin, Mel Gibson, and other guys we wouldn’t trust with a pair of scissors, not to mention a kid! So join us this Father’s Day while we count down the 15 worst pops of all, ranked by the standard unit of bad dads: the Michael Lohan. If your face is in the gallery below, you’re probably not getting a tie for Father’s Day this year.
What’s hot, hard, and runs on Windows XP or higher? It’s robots of course! Our artificially intelligent friends have been heating up screens both large and small with their lab-crafted good looks for decades. They may not have feelings, but then again we’ve always been attracted to emotional unavailability. From Weird Science‘s Kelly LeBrock and Jude Law in A.I. to Jeri Ryan in Star Trek: Voyager and even that Svedka Vodka ad, you don’t have to be well versed in C++ or QBasic to appreciate the sizzling appeal of these machines!
Ridley Scott’s latest epic Prometheus opens wide today, starring Michael Fassbender as hunky android David. We haven’t seen it yet, but we think he’s definitely in the running for one of the hottest robots in pop culture history. But there are so many to choose from! Check out the gallery below for our list of the 20 sexiest robots of all time. With hot bots like these, who needs humans? Did we miss any? Disagree with our ranking? Let us know in the comments!
You always had a lurking suspicion that Gwyneth Paltrow would somehow be the death of you, though before today you assumed it would be the result of terminal eye rolling induced by a DVD of Country Strong, rather an unstoppable outbreak of the bird flu. Either way, now you can see your fear play out in real time in the new Contagion trailer, which has Paltrow turning up the sweaty jaundice as the first victim of a global pandemic that the CDC must race to contain. So basically it looks like Outbreak, but with an Academy Award-winning actress instead of a little escaped monkey.
Costarring Matt Damon, Laurence Fishburne, Kate Winslet and Jude Law, the thriller is currently scheduled for release September 9 of this year. Of course, it’s not fair to place all the blame on a diseased Paltrow. As Jude puts it in the trailer, “No one has to weaponize the bird flu. The birds are doing that.” So really the film seems more like The Happening, but with pigeons instead of tress. We warned you: whatever you do, do not let your eyes start rolling. There’s not telling if they can ever be stopped!
We’re already a sucker for anything involving smoking jackets, petticoats and pewter chalices, but combine it with good ol’ fashioned cross-dressing? You have yourself the holiday hit of the year right there. The Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows trailer promises all the karate chops and dry banter present in the first Sherlock Holmes film staring Robert Down Jr. and Jude Law, but just in case the American public wasn’t sold on the bad-assery inherent in an old-timey British detective series, the upcoming sequel also includes The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo‘s Noomi Rapace, a showdown with Holmes’ archnemisis Dr. Moriarty (we remember our Wishbone episodes), and what appears to be a slow-motion trains-plosion. We also suspect Downey in drag is a sly blue-eye-shadow-encrusted wink the Sherlock Holmes gay rumors swirling around the previous film. Elementary, my dear diva!
This is the life! The eighteenth annual amfAR Cinema Against AIDS gala took place yesterday at the Cannes Film Festival. The super schmancy event was held at the Hotel Du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes, France and involved the usual — gowns and jewelry worth approximately three of our lifetimes! Kirsten Dunst showed up looking as fresh as a daisy, completely unaffected by the rumor that her nighttime partying kept Brangelina up all night.
Janet Jackson looked pretty svelte and rocked some bright blue nail polish! Irina Shayk showed up with a slit cut up till there, while cuties Dev Patel and Frieda Pinto snuggled up for the cameras. Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani added a bit of punk to the proceedings while old hands Goldie Hawn and Brooke Shields looked flawless in dull gold and white respectively. Join us in our envy by taking a look at the photos below. We’re making margaritas!
