In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Charlize Theron hits it out of the park as she jokes about Michael Fassbender’s penis with finesse, and Rosie O’Donnell continues to fall from talk show grace, taking it out on her staff.
Jennifer Lawrence is killing The Hunger Games press tour
I’m not going to lie, lady’s an absolute stunner on the red carpet in this Calvin Klein dress. We’ve already raved about her self-deprecating humour, but I still have to ask, can we please be friends?
Charlize Theron jokes about Michael Fassbender’s penis
The Fassbender penis jokes aren’t over, according to Theron. Fassbender and Theron costar in June’s Prometheus, but she couldn’t help but give a shoutout to his full-frontal role in last year’s Shame. “Your penis was a revelation,” she quipped at a Human Rights Campaign gala. “I’m available to work with it any time.” Spoilers, Theron! I haven’t seen Shame yet!
Mila Kunis will be on a Craig Ferguson Scottish special
Kunis was in Glasglow, ready to be sucked into the Scottish Vacuum of Charm. She’ll be on a special episode of The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. She ranks fourth on my list of favourite guests with her comedic skills. It’s not low considering she’s right under Any Scottish Guest, Kristen Bell, and any cast member of Doctor Who.
Ray J is waiting to sell his sex tapes with Whitney Houston
A source told Star that Brandy’s little brother is just waiting to sell the many sex tapes he made with Whitney but Ray J denied the rumours to TMZ. I wish we could just push him into obscurity so I can continue to remember Houston as the amazing performer she was, not the dirtbags she was with. Remember, this is the guy that also made a sex tape with Kim Kardashian…
Ashton Kutcher first celebrity in space
He’ll be paying $200,000 for the trip into space with Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic, a.k.a. Rich People Vacations. While he gears up to leave Earth (yay!) and ruin the fantasy of The Great Beyond for sci-fi nerds everywhere (BOO!), I’ll be trying to twitter-trend #LanceBassinSpace. If Kutcher can do it, why can’t he?
Rosie O’Donnell is a TV tyrant
The Rosie Show, which airs on OWN, is tanking and Rosie’s taking it all out on the staff. The staff, who used to work for the great Oprah herself, are obviously not pleased. Instead of getting free cars, they’re being subjected to Rosie’s angry quacking.
He may be out of her league in a movie, but Jay Baruchel is definitely in the league of young, successful actors. He’s worked with Clint Eastwood in the multi Oscar-winning “Million Dollar Baby” and shared scenes with fellow Canadian Funnymen Seth Rogen and Michael Cera — and those are only three of his nearly 30 acting credits.
Earlier this year, Baruchel proved that a 5 can date a 10 in the comedy vehicle “She’s Out of My League.” Now, he has the No. 1 movie at the box office with “How to Train Your Dragon,” an animated 3-D movie he co-stars with a CGI fire-blower.
While he’s already accomplished a lot this year, let alone throughout his acting career, Baruchel hasn’t reached his ultimate goal — one that doesn’t involve comedy. The 27 year old hopes to direct horror films.
Although “Dragons” is far from a gory horror flick, Baruchel still had a blast making the animated movie. In fact, his character Hiccup is one of the closest characters to himself that he’s ever played. Even his mother was blown away by their similarities.
Perez Hilton reports The Late Show with David Letterman has beaten The Tonight Show in ratings for four consecutive weeks. This is the first time in a decade that Letterman has stayed above the competition for so long.
Letterman has been hosting the show since 1993, while Conan O’Brien, the new host of The Tonight Show, only just took over for Jay Leno in June.
The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, which follows Letterman on CBS, has scored higher ratings than NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon for three weeks running.
