David Beckham has announced he will be retiring from soccer after his current season with French team Paris Saint-Germain wraps.
The 38-year-old soccer star told The Guardian that he is thankful to PSG for giving him the opportunity to continue, adding “now is the right time to finish my career, playing at the highest level.” Beckham also mentioned he is honoured to represent England both “on and off the pitch.”
“I want to thank all my teammates, the great managers that I had the pleasure of learning from,” he said. “I also want to thank the fans who have all supported me and given me the strength to succeed.”
If we can’t admire him as he runs up and down the pitch, here’s to hoping Beckham chooses to dedicates his time to his underwear modelling career.
Everyone’s favourite good looking leading man Ryan Gosling has said he is looking to take a break from acting.
In an interview with the Associated Press, Gosling said he has lost perspective since he was doing too much work.
“I think it’s good for me to take a break and reassess why I’m doing it and how I’m doing it,” he said. “And I think this is probably a good way to learn about that. I need a break from myself as much as I imagine the audience does.”
Gosling already has two films set for release this spring: The Place Beyond the Pines and Only God Forgives. He is also set to make his directorial debut with To Catch A Monster which is slated for release next year.
A little break is always a good thing, but in what world would audiences ever be sick of this:
Giggling over tea towels with his face on them
or an old photo of him and Mouseketeer co-star Justin Timberlake
Or when he was shirtless in Crazy Stupid Love
Years later, we have to admit Uncle Jesse is still a total babe. No wonder Jennifer Lawrence told Conan O’Brian that she was like a “perverted guy” when she spotted John Stamos at a party.
But looking back at old photos, it’s kind of difficult to explain why everyone had a crush on Michelle Tanner’s cool, guitar playing uncle. Because how you explain the allure of a lamé shirt? Or impeccably feathered hair? You really can’t; not now, not ever. But hey, what happened has happened and here are some of John Stamos’ most embarrassing looks.

Ladies (and maybe gents), make this the only video you watch today (hell, watch it 10 times even!) because you won’t regret it.
Starring in a new H&M ad directed by Guy Ritchie, soccer star David Beckham is seen running half-naked around a Los Angeles neighbourhood while only in his boxer briefs and a pair of slippers.
Yes, this is slightly an objectification of Beckham’s body. But if he has no problem with showing off his goods, then THAT’S COMPLETELY FINE WITH ME. In fact, if there were more videos like this, I think the world would be a happier place.
Watch the video here:
Looks like another storm of racist comments are coming over the possible casting of Jesse Williams for Finnick Odair in the next Hunger Games films Catching Fire and Mockingjay.
The trilogy has met a lot of criticism in the past for first casting Jennifer Lawrence to transform into the dark-complexioned Katniss Everdeen. Then, there was the controversy over casting Amandla Stenberg as 11-year-old Rue because of her race.
But according to message boards like this one, people seem to think that Finnick Odair should be Caucasian:
Here are some of the comments:
“I think that Jesse Wiliams just won’t work. Finnick Odair in my eyes is Tall, young, disheveled medium long luscious Golden blonde hair, ocean blue colored eyes, he has a glowing tan, washboard abs, and wears almost no clothes, at the same times carries a trident. That is the guy i wan’t to see as Finnick. For example PERFECT GUY is Ian Somerhalder. Color him blonde and throw in some contacts and wala you have Finnick Odair!”
“I’m sorry but unless I read the wrong book, isn’t Finnick Caucasian? By tanned skin Collins meant his skin was darkened from the sun (swimming/fishing) not that he is of a darker skin ethnicity… Don’t get me wrong, this guy is great just completely wrong for this role.”
Meanwhile, here’s what Williams had to say:
“I didn’t know what the heck a Finnick was when I was getting a lot of the questions about it. People are creative about that kind of stuff, and now I’ll try to figure out if that’s something that’s interesting to me.”
According to the books, the character is described as an extremely handsome man with “tan skin” (also referred to as “golden”), “bronze-colored hair” and “incredible” sea-green eyes.
Personally, I think Jesse would be an excellent choice for Finnick. He’s tanned, has a sexy body and has beautiful eyes. This man is hot!!
And so what if he isn’t Caucasian? Maybe he’ll even shock you with his performance! And besides, Hollywood definitely needs more diversity in their films and range of actors.
Caleb was complaining about the heat and said he needed to go backstage and puke, and also grab a beer. He did do that, but he never returned. So the other two members ended the show, and said ”Hate Caleb, not us.”
This could have happened to anybody. You get really loaded and play in a hot venue, it’s not surprising Caleb couldn’t last the entire show.
Elle magazine’s April issue featured an interview with Swift and when she was asked who she thought was hot, she was timid about her answer. “Um, well … Taylor Lautner,” she said.
The two casually dated last year before ending their relationship in late December. The starlet wasn’t clear on if this was new fuel for future songs or albums, although she did hint that her love life is a heavy influence on her music.
