It’s no secret that Parks and Recreation star Chris Pratt has undergone a physical transformation over the past year. The dopey actor went from lovable with a cuddly squeeze to a lean, mean, sex appealing machine for his role as Peter Quill in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. An unexpected result of that transition was the reveal of Pratt’s inexplicable likeness to fellow actor Patrick Wilson.
This is pretty much what we imagine happened to all the mean girls after high school. And we’re loving it! The trailer for Charlize’s Theron’s Young Adult debuted today, and we are pretty psyched for its release on Decemeber 9. Theron reportedly plays Mavis Gary, a down-and-out young adult writer who returns to her home town to seduce her (now married)(and child-having) high school ex.
Hijinks and terribly unflattering lipstick ensue! We love her co-stars, the adorable Patrick Wilson and the excellent comedian Patton Oswalt, but based on the trailer, don’t you find Charlize’s character slightly less sympathetic than she was in Monster, even though technically speaking she was playing a serial killer in that one? Just us then? But she almost won an Oscar for it! Okay, we’ll stop.
“Pfft,” you say, “Top Ten Patricks on St. Patrick’s Day? Really?” And to that we say, “Oh yeah, really! This is how we roll on St. Patrick’s Day! You wanna take this outside? WOOOOOO!!!!” We didn’t screw around with historical figures and celebs like Neil Patrick Harris and Robert Patrick to fill up the list, either. No, we found ten celebrities we love whose first name is Patrick—people you could yell “Hey, Patrick!” to on the street and they would turn around. Check out the gallery to see the fine cuts of corned beef we think best live up to the name that means “noble,” “patrician,” and “getting to work late the next morning, if at all.”
We have an irrational love for Rachel McAdams, so forgive us if we fawn over her for a moment, we think she looked great at the premiere for her latest film last night. McAdams is currently starring in Morning Glory, which looks to be the kind of movie you and your parents will end up seeing together over Thanksgiving because while it stars McAdams and hot hot Patrick Wilson, it also has Diane Keaton and Harrison Ford to bridge the generation gap. (McAdams and Keaton already starred together in The Family Stone, and dammit if that’s one of those good-bad movies we can’t help watching that every time it’s on HBO.)
While we love McAdams’ look on the red carpet, and we’re also kind of a fan of Diane Keaton’s leather dress, some of the other celebs look a bit wind-swept, no? (We’re looking at you, Hoda and Harrison.) Check them all out below.
Jennifer Aniston andÃ‚Â Juliette Lewis have a lot in common. They co-star in The Switch together. They were present at the film’s premiere last night at theÃ‚Â ArcLight in Los Angeles. They both did it with Brad Pitt.Ã‚Â (He sure does not have a type, huh? These two, Gwyneth, Angie…There is no common thread.)
One more thing these women are famous for is their hair. Er, at least, Aniston is, and Lewis wants to be, as you can see from her latest look. Juliette had no choice but to try and upstage Jen on the red carpet with her X-Men inspired blue tresses. Hey, if you can’t have those famous caramel-colored locks, you might as well go in the complete opposite direction, right? For pics of these two ladies and the rest of the cast, check out our gallery below.
While wish Mr. T replacement Quinton “Rampage” Jackson seemed a tad more badass in the trailer, the sight of Bradley Cooper shooting planes from a tank on a parachute is enough to get us excited for the new A-Team movie, which celebrated its premiere in Hollywood last night with Cooper showing up in a tank. Co-stars Jessica Biel, Liam Neeson and Patrick Wilson were there as well, joined by such well-wishers as Jon Hamm, Kristen Bell and Adrien Brody, who actually tied his tie right! Too bad his slick fedora and vest made him look like Justin Timberlake‘s forgotten older brother Lenny. See more photos of the celebs (and that tank!) in the gallery below.
