Crisis Management: 10 Celebs Who Checked Into Rehab To Help Their Careers

2012 NBA All-Star Game

With the news that Chris Brown has checked himself into rehab, the question on everyone’s mind is: Is this for real? The actor who has been in trouble with the law before and has a clear anger management issue has finally sought help following his arrest, which resulted in felony charges. In what appears to many to be an effort to stall jail time, Brown, like many before him, is seeking to manage his public image via a stint in rehab. But will it work like it did for others?

badboys

We all fantasize about the celebrity romance: a rich and handsome (and famous) man sweeps you off your feet. He wines and dines you. You travel the world. Months later, your wedding announcement is on the cover of all the tabloid magazines. That’s all well and good, but fantasizing about these 10 Bad News Boys should maybe come with a warning label.

Russell Brand Starts The Revolution With One Extremely Random Yoga Studio Walkout

Russell Brand Stages Yoga Studio Walkout

Taking a break from helping the homeless and spending millions on billowing harem pants, Russell Brand continued his transformation into a hairier Mother Teresa last week by staging a walkout at L.A.’s Golden Bridge yoga studio. No, it wasn’t to support a free Tibet or protest the use of non-organic sage in the community cleansing ceremonies. Instead, Russell rallied his fellow yoga students to storm out of class in support of his yoga teacher friend Tej Kaur Kalsa because the studio wouldn’t let her out of her contract. Yes, we know it’s not as sexy a cause as we would have hoped, but still. This is the same guy from Get Him To The Greek! Baby steps, people.

This Is 45! Celebrate Judd Apatow’s Birthday By Counting Down The 15 Greatest Man-Children He Brought To The Screen

Judd Apatow's 15 greatest man-children of all time

If you had to call comedy another name, you could call it “Judd Apatow.” The multi-talented writer/director/producer has dominated the face of funny over the  past decade, and he’s responsible for some of the best laugh-out-loud films ever made. From his early features like (our childhood must-see) Heavyweights to small screen gems like Freaks and Geeks, and all the way through to box office busters like Superbad and Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy, his movies have defined comedy to a generation of people, and we’re thankful for all that laughs he’s given us over the years.

But we’re not the only people who should be thankful. Some of the biggest comedy stars in the world today got their big breaks by featuring in Judd’s movies. From James Franco to Seth Rogen and Jason Segel, Mr. Apatow can spot a career-making hit a mile off. What is the deal with his insane success rate? How is he able to produce such memorable characters that propel the actors into the mega-successful stratosphere?

The answer is simple: The Man-Child. Judd Apatow is the king of the emotionally stunted, delightfully immature, hilariously inept and maladjusted male who just can’t be a functional adult no matter how hard he tries. It’s a hallmark of all of his work. Whether it’s Steve Carell’s wax agony in The 40 Year Old Virgin, Seth Rogen staring down the  barrel of fatherhood in Knocked Up, or Jason Segel’s nude and heartbroken misery in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, we laugh so hard at these folks because we see our own faults in their complete and utter dysfunction. So in honor of Judd’s big day, we counted down our 15 favorite man children that he brought to the screen. We hope you enjoy it!

A Few Theories About Why Russell Brand Has Turned Into Some Kind Of Snuggly Pajama Angel

Russell Brand Steps Out In Insane ShawlRussell Brand has been out and about in Los Angles over the last couple months sporting an array of comfy sweaters and soft, droopy-crotched pants. We’d just assumed he was always, constantly walking to yoga class, but as of this weekend those times have ended. The age of Russell the Snuggle Angel has begun. Brand’s all-white shawl-centric wardrobe is a sharp departure from the greasy studded vests and leather crotch rot we normally associate with his wardrobe, so we had to wonder…what could have brought Russell to this new cozy, pristine look? Here’s what we came up with:

Did Katy Perry And Russell Brand Curse The Lakers With Their Awkward Reunion?

Ex-spouses Katy Perry and Russell Brand attended the Lakers game

We wonder if the Lakers’ publicists planned this one: Ex-spouses Katy Perry and Russell Brand both attended the Lakers’ season opener at the Staples Center last night. We’re pretty sure that was the first time they’ve been spotted in the same place since their split was announced last December, so of course, all eyes were on them. And according to E! Online, they were on opposite sides of the court and didn’t speak to each other all night. Which makes us really sad. We thought things were amicable between them. Russell has said nothing but nice things about Katy, and both quickly moved onto new objects of affection. We lost track of Russell’s models, artists and Spice Girls. And Katy’s been a serial monogamist — first with Florence and the Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd and then with John Mayer guitarist John Mayer. So why the icy public display?

And can we blame them for the fact that the Lakers lost to the Dallas Mavericks 99-91? The team probably hopes so.
