March 30, 2011 - Paul Giamatti

Movie star Paul Giamatti has found a new way of disciplining unruly horses on film sets - punch them in the jaw.

The Sideways star was tired of having to reshoot scenes in his new medieval epic Ironclad because his steed would not stand still - so he decided to let the beast know who was playing the king.

The actor, who plays King John in the film, explains, "The horse in this was a real bitch... It kept walking backwards just to kind of mess with me... so I punched the horse... I clipped him in the jaw."
And the brute force worked on the animal: "After that, that little crapper was on point."

I have a new hero, take a hike Matt Damon.  Paul Giamatti you are the man!  Not only is he a great actor he punches horses in the face.  I assume he probably punched it in the face and laughed at him too.  If I were a horse and Paul Giamatti punched me in the face, I'd probably take it and behave myself too.

On a side note, sorry for missing yesterday... I'm an accountant and it's busy season.

March 28, 2011 - Matt Damon

Matt Damon has no qualms about his gay kissing scenes with Michael Douglas for the upcoming Liberace biopic - he'll pretend he's smooching with the Wall Street star's wife Catherine Zeta-Jones instead.

Douglas has bounced back from his cancer battle last year to start filming the big screen story of the flamboyant gay entertainer's life.

Damon has abandoned his action man image to play Liberace's younger partner in the film, and is adamant his kissing scenes with Douglas almost make up for the fact he didn't get to make out with the star's beautiful Welsh wife in Ocean's Twelve.

He tells, "I never thought I would get to kiss Michael Douglas. I kind of think of it in algebra terms, back to my high-school days. It's like the transitive property - by kissing Michael Douglas, I am making out with Catherine.

"I was actually kind of upset that I never got to kiss Catherine. But now I get to kiss Michael. I thought it would have been better if I could have at least kissed them both."

Wow... Way to make your stock go down Matt.  Just when I thought you were the most kick ass man on the planet.  You brag about kissing an old geezer and playing Liberace's younger lover.  That's actually sorta disturbing.  I'm disappointed.

March 27, 2011 - Ben Stiller

Actor Ben Stiller is uneasy living in the suburbs on New York because he's "aware of ghosts" and afraid his house might be haunted.

The actor recently moved from the west coast to the Big Apple to star in the Broadway play The House of Blue Leaves, and he admits he isn't too keen about transplanting to a town outside the city limits.
He says, "I have a little thing with quietness and spirits. I'm aware of ghosts. I sort of believe in ghosts, and my wife doesn't; she's afraid of axe murders."

But the Meet The Parents star has reason to be afraid - he has lived in two haunted homes before.
He continued, "We rented a house in Los Angeles a few years ago, that something had gone on in, because the caretaker of the house was a little bit loopy. She had called to check on us a few days in and she said, 'How's it going? Have you had any experiences?'

"And I said 'No', and she goes 'Well... when I stayed there every morning I woke up at 4.43am for three weeks straight. And I got buzzed on the intercom a few times and I heard a few doors slam. And then one morning at about 4.48am in the morning I heard a party going on downstairs, a full on party with Charleston music playing and people mingling.'"

Though Stiller insists he hasn't seen any ghosts himself, the actor reveals his parents Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara once rented a home in Nantucket that was supposedly haunted by a young baby named Stanley Benjamin.

I don't know what to say about this, I mean c'mon Ben, put on your big boy pants and man up a bit.  Ghosts are for children's stories.  You're an adult, and let me tell you, there's no such thing as ghosts.

March 26, 2011 - Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan is set to drop her last name in an attempt to put her troubled past behind her, according to the actress' mother. The Mean Girls star is planning to relaunch herself as simply 'Lindsay' as she struggles to rebuild her career following a string of personal problems and stints in jail and rehab.

And in an apparent snub to Lindsay's father Michael Lohan, her younger sister Ali and mother Dina are also planning to drop the family name and use Dina's maiden moniker 'Sullivan' instead.

Who made this bitch a star?  She's not really hot, she's coked out of her mind at all times, she acts like a prima donna, and is virtually impossible to work with. I don't understand why she is worried about someone sullying her "good name", since she does a pretty good job of doing that herself.

March 25, 2011 - Sylvester Stallone

Actor Sylvester Stallone has become the latest star to enter the world of fashion - he's creating a clothing line.
Sly Inc., which was inspired by the star's legendary on-screen characters Rambo and Rocky Balboa, will consist of jeans, shirts, outerwear, underwear, and watches.

Stallone tells Men's Week magazine, "I thought the time is now. I've lived a life where I know what has worked and what hasn't worked. Clothing is the first step to building a character."

The actor, who will launch the lifestyle brand next year, eventually hopes to expand the line to include eyewear, grooming products, athletic wear and even a fragrance.

Perfect!  I can't wait to get a Rambo headband and wear it with my Italian Stallion warm up robe.  I'm a little disappointed that he's not using his legendary character from Stop or My Mom Will Shoot as inspiration from this line.  Oh... How bout a Judge Dredd helmet... that'd be pretty awesome, I'd buy that, even if it would cover my Rambo headband.

Elizabeth Taylor died yesterday...

On Feb. 11, it was announced that she had been in taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles earlier that week for symptoms caused by congestive heart failure, and around 1:30 a.m. on 3/23/11 she “peacefully died there,” according to her publicist. “Though she had recently suffered a number of complications, her condition had stabilized and it was hoped that she would be able to return home. Sadly, this was not to be.”

I'm not here to bad mouth the dead, but I have a hard time caring about the death of a celebrity who hasn't acted in nearly 30 years.  For me personally I only remember her as a tabloid cover girl who was buddy buddy with Michael Jackson.  Yes, I've seen Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, and Cleopatra.  Still not enough to make me care about this.  I'm merely posting it because it's apparently significant to somebody... Oh and it's a slow news day.

Ben Affleck's embarrassing first experience buying condoms as a teenager has been revealed in a sex book written by his friend Matt Damon's former step-mother.

The actor/director contributed a story to a 1990 teen sex guide called Risky Times: How to be AIDS Smart and Stay Healthy written by Jeanne Blake, who was formerly married to Damon's father Kent.
The book, which is now out of print, resurfaced during Damon's recent appearance on Jay Leno's talk show, with the actor telling the host, "Yes, that's Ben. And all the sex he wasn't getting... There's some good dirt on Ben in there, I'm sure."

Affleck's story about buying condoms from a pharmacy has now surfaced online along with a picture of the actor as a teenager.

The star, who was 18 years old at the time of the encounter, recalled, "I was so scared. I wondered: 'Are they going to call my mom?' I went into the store, walked up to the shelf and grabbed the box. I didn't stand there looking too long. There were two registers. A man was at one, a woman at another. Of course, the woman's register came up first. I felt so self-conscious and idiotic, but it was all over in a second. I put them down and she looked at me with this stoic face and rang them up and put them in a bag, and I ran out of that store really fast!"
Another quote from Affleck reads, "There are so many things I want to do in my life. I want to be given the chance to become someone. I want to see how the story ends."

Awww.. How sweet.  Wait... What?  If my best friends mom comes up to me, looking to write a book about sex, and then asks me for a story to contribute...  She'd be bent over the kitchen counter taking it like a whore faster than you can say "How's this for a story you slutty MILF.  You like that shit?  You like it?"  Obviously this is not creepy at all.  I have no clue what Ben Affleck and Matt Damon's relationship is, but after reading this, Ben totally did his best friend's step mom.

Embattled TV star Charlie Sheen is planning to take his one-man comedy show to Haiti and donate all proceeds to charity.  The actor has been selling out venues across the U.S. with his Charlie Sheen Live: My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not an Option tour and now he's in negotiations to take the show to the earthquake-ravaged country.

According to, Sheen has been working closely with Sean Penn to set up the benefit event after recently agreeing to jet to the Caribbean nation on a humanitarian mission.
Earlier this month, Penn confirmed the unemployed actor was lending his help to the Jp Haitian Relief Organization, the charity the Milk star set up in the aftermath of last year's devastating earthquake.

Oh hell.  This is a fantastic idea!  I honestly believe that Haitians can really relate to Charlie Sheen.  I mean he was once making more than the GDP of their shithole country, per episode of Two and a Half Men.  Oh man... I want to see the headlines.  "Sheen to Remain in Haiti with Three Eyed 'Goddess' for the next five years"  What the fuck is he hoping for?  I'm sure he's hoping for more blow than he could ever snort.  I hope you find it my son.  Well played Charles, Well fucking played.

Ferrets stink.  Like really stink.  I don't know if anyone reading this has ever owned one, but they smell freaking horrible.  Of course that won't stop this 'tard from owning a few... 

Paris Hilton is supporting a campaign to change a law banning ferrets as pets in California.  The animal-friend party girl was made to hand over her two ferrets, Dolce and Gabbana, (Wow, seriously?  She couldn't be more creative than that?) after telling in a 2004 TV interview that she owned the creatures.  (Good job, lets go on TV and tell the world we've got something illegal)  Rumor has it she will be doing a TV interview next month in which she confesses to having cocaine and heroin on her person.  Domestic ferrets have been illegal in California for 80 years but residents have launched to question the regulation - and Hilton has spoken out to voice her support and push for legalisation.  She says, "If they are looked after properly, they really are the sweetest, most lovable creatures."

I don't think that there is really anything lovable about a ferret.  It's a rodent.  If you want lovable, get a dog.  If you want sort of lovable, get a cat.  What are your thoughts?

Thandie Newton is about as relevant as poop dangling from a stick, but she's sort of hot, and when hot chicks pass gas, I find that funny.  Just a reminder to everyone out there, even hot chicks are human.

Thandie Newton caused a stink on the set of Mission Impossible II after playing a prank on the cast and crew.
The British actress admits her most embarrassing moment was breaking wind on the Australian set of the 2000 action movie - and she was more than happy to let a crowd of extras take the blame for the mishap.
Speaking on Britain's Comic Relief, she says, "I was in Australia filming Mission Impossible II with Tom Cruise and I had a scene where we were filming in a racetrack, we were up in the stands, and it was me and about 200 extras.
"I'd eaten something that morning which hadn't agreed with me and I got on set and I'm with all the extras and I decide that I'm going to have to let one go, it's too uncomfortable. So I demurely let one slide out, just to see how it goes...
"I can feel the ripple of this stench, and very quickly - I'm of course looking around going 'Oh for God's sake' - I can hear people going, 'God, someone go to the dunny (toilet). For goodness sake, we've got Thandie Newton in our presence!'"
