In yet more sloth news, Matty the baby sloth may just be a lady killer in the making — the romantic kind, not the serial killer kind.
Matty, a resident of a sloth sanctuary in Costa Rica, handed his handler a flower which obviously melted the hearts of sloth lovers everywhere. Cue Kristen Bell:
There’s no doubt that Matty will be the sanctuary’s resident Casanova with adorable moves like those. His female friends will probably be chasing after his little heart, even if it takes a while to get there.
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, President Barack Obama gets re-elected, Donald Trump is a sore loser, and One Direction wear football uniforms.
HIT: President Barack Obama gets re-elected
Let’s see: I’m a Canadian. I like my healthcare. I’m also a woman so I like my rights. I also love seeing people in love get their happy ending, whether they’re straight, gay queer, etc. So obviously, I’m happy that Obama won and those dickwads (a.k.a. Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock) who have absolutely no idea what rape is didn’t. Oh, I might as well mention that a very large group of diverse women (including an Asian-American and an openly gay politician) will be in the senate next year. To quote Tina Fey, “bitches get stuff done.”
MISS: Donald Trump’s Twitter rant post-election results
There was no one more upset than Donald Trump last night after all the news outlets (including Fox News) called the election in favour of Obama. He has since deleted most of the tweets, but it doesn’t matter because, to quote NBC anchor Brian Williams, Trump “has driven well past the last exit to relevance.” Trump is too short-sighted, stubborn and maybe even xenophobic to even contemplate bi-partisanship and it’s people like him who are splitting America apart. He can rant and rave all he wants, but he has to pull a Bill Clinton by backing his claims with facts before I take heed of his garbage.
HIT: One Direction in (American) football Uniforms
Sorry for the political bits. Apparently, the American political world morphes into the entertainment world during the last days of the election (Canadian elections aren’t as entertaining. Interesting, yes, but not entertaining). To apologize, here’s a photo of One Direction in tight American football uniforms. You are welcomed.

I really sympathize with modern day celebrities who have to endure social media bullying. It never used to be so bad right? I mean, it’s a lot easier to tweet a slur than send one by carrier pigeon.
Celebrities who manage their own Twitter accounts have the unfortunate duty of reading all the hate mail themselves. Luckily, once they get over the stinging pain of rejection they sometimes develop a good sense of humour about it.
In anticipation of Twitter’s sixth anniversary, Jimmy Kimmel rounded up a couple comedians to share the meanest tweets they’ve ever received. Some of my favourites are below. And the spelling errors are not my own…
@FilthyRichmond asked Andy Dick: “Can it be my turn to punch @andydick until there’s bones in his stool?”
@Jose_B_Wylin told Will Ferrell: “Lol yo will Ferrell fucking dum.”
@jazaratee told Kristen Bell: “@IMKristenBell is so fucking ugly. Way too ugly to play snow white in snow white & the huntsman.”
@enargins told Anna Faris: “If you change the ‘i’ in Anna Faris’ last name to ‘t’, you get ‘Anna Farts.’ Interesting.”
Watch it below:
Sloth-loving Kristen Bell revealed another one of her obsessions to Jimmy Kimmel: The Hunger Games. For Bell, it’s the prize-winning piece of literature that will define our century. No really, she said “this is the piece of literature that in a hundred years we’ll look back on and it will be the best thing we’ve ever written.” Bell even had a Hunger Games-themed birthday party about a month ago and dressed up as Katniss.
Although she tried to convince her lit-snob husband Dax Shepard to read it, he wasn’t interested, especially after the couple ran into a 12-year-old Hunger Games superfan at the airport and he realized it’s a teen book. Still, Shepard allowed his wife to read him the book in a span of three weeks and she even did the voices for him. And of course (drumroll) he loved it.
Have you ever wondered what your name would be if you were a sloth?
According to the site, “the real sloth in you comes out when you are being super chill, or maybe sleeping.”
Just enter your real name on the page and the generator will find a name that will match your “sloth identity”. (Mine is “Cuddles The F**king Straggler”)
And I guess this is what I’ll look like too.
Remember that hilarious interview Kristen Bell gave Ellen about her sloth encounter? We posted the original interview a few weeks ago.
The interview was a viral hit (8 million views) on YouTube and Ellen too can’t get enough of it. That’s why she decided to air this auto-tuned version of Kristen’s interview, featuring some audience members dancing along.
“Next time my back goes out again, that’s my new dance move!” Ellen joked.
The T-Pain inspired song was created by the Gregory Brothers. Take a look:
Kristen Bell continues to show the world just how precious and adorable she is with her latest appearance on the Ellen Show.
The actress told Ellen how her boyfriend Dax Sheppard surprised her with a sloth on her 31st birthday. Kristen always wanted a pet sloth ever since she was little, so when Dax finally got her one, she had a complete meltdown.
“It’s embarrassing but it’s worth watching,” Kristen says of the home video she shared with the audience. It features the actress curled up in bed crying tears of joy.
When Ellen pranked Kristen by saying there’s a sloth waiting backstage, she went into hysterics. Check out the adorable clip below.
Fans of Kristen Bell have been begging for a “Veronica Mars” movie ever since the t.v. show got canned a couple of years ago. While it may not happen any time soon, Bell followers can at least bask in the glow of her hilarious Funny or Die video “Body of Lies”.
The blonde starlet reveals to Inside Hollywood that she’s actually covered from head to toe in tattoos. The video shows the actress arriving at her trailer at 3:30 in the morning to sit in the makeup chair for twelve hours in order for her Kat Von D-like body art to be covered up.
Kristen reveals she has a tat of Steve Urkell from “Family Matters” on her left shoulder-blade, a butterfly for each year the South Africa apartheid was enacted and “insert gear here” under her mouth.
Whether you’re a fan of Kristen Bell or a fan of tattoos, you’ll find this video highly amusing.
Producer Rob Thomas told E! News that after his new series “Cupid” airing on ABC has been cut down from 13 episodes to 8, he’ll have more time to work on the “Veronica Mars” movie script.
“What that means for me is that I have a couple of months to write the Veronica Mars movie,” Thomas said to E! News. “I suddenly find myself with enough time to write that script. That’s the next project.”
Rumours had been flying that the movie would show Veronica Mars solving crimes while in college. Thomas set the record straight to E! News, “I think it would open just days before Hearst College graduation, so Veronica would be at the end of her college career.”
Although the cast for the movie has not been confirmed, Thomas hopes the original cast will sign on, “I’ve talked to Jason Dohring, I’ve talked to Enrico Colantoni and I’ve talked to Kristen [Bell], obviously. I know that Kristen wants to do it. I want to do it”.
Kristen Bell, Kristin Davis and Malin Akerman are the latest cast additions to the Jon Favreau-penned comedy “Couples Retreat.”
The Universal movie follows four couples who take part in couples therapy at a tropical island resort, with some participants being more willing than others.
The men will be played by Jason Bateman (paired up with Bell), Favreau (with Davis), Vince Vaughn (with Akerman) and Faizon Love.
Former child actor-turned-producer Peter Billingsley is directing the project, which will film in Bora Bora and Los Angeles.
Bell, who shot to fame as TV’s “Veronica Mars,” currently has a recurring role on NBC’s “Heroes.” She recently appeared on the big screen in the comedy “Forgetting Sarah Marshall.”
Davis is coming off the box-office success of the “Sex and the City” movie, where she reprised her role as Charlotte.
Akerman appeared in “27 Dresses” and will next appear in the film adaptation of the “Watchmen” graphic novel series, as well as the romantic comedy “The Proposal.”
It’s a good thing Kristen Bell has a good sense of humour.
There appears to be a huge error in the extended sex scene that appears on the “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” DVD, in which the blur tool is mistakenly in the wrong place. While the blur is supposed to be covering Bell’s breast, it is moved too far to the left, covering part of her arm instead.
Luckily, Bell was wearing “pasties” to cover up her assets. But that doesn’t mean fans won’t enjoy seeing just a little bit more of her that they weren’t supposed to see.
Forget Sarah Marshall – it’s all about Russell Brand.
A sequel to Jason Segal’s hit comedy is in the works, which would centre around Brand’s obnoxious rock star character, Aldous Snow.
UK website Chortle reports that Segal and Sarah Marshall herself, Kristen Bell, have been approached but nothing has been confirmed. Jonah Hill, however, would be back, “a wet-behind-the-ears insurance adjuster instructed to ensure Brand’s wildman gets to a gig.”
Prince and “Veronica Mars” star Kristen Bell have been voted “World’s Sexiest Vegetarians” in PETA’s annual online poll. According to the animal rights group, more than 40,000 people cast their votes on PETA’s website, GoVeg.com.
Prince, 47, is a strict vegan. He even lashed out against the wool industry in the liner notes of his 1999 album, “Rave Un2 the Joy Fantastic.” As for Bell, her pets played a big role in the conversion to vegetarianism.
“I have always been an animal lover,” she told PETA. “I had a hard time disassociating the animals I cuddled with ? dogs and cats, for example ? from the animals on my plate.”
Runners-up in the poll included Natalie Portman, Joaquin Phoenix and Canada’s own J.D. Fortune.
