Never mind that it’s only August. Zimbio polled their readers and came up with the hottest 25 actors of 2013. Here’s who they are. Where do you stand? Do you agree or disagree? Number one was surprising to me, in the, “let pause and think, ‘…really?’” way. And can you guess who made the top 10 that also made the top 10 in the Ugliest Men list?
25. Alexander Skarsgard
24. Zac Efron
23. Chris Evans
22. Paul Walker
21. James Franco
20. Ben Affleck
19. Robert Downey Jr.
18. Leonardo DiCaprio
17. Jake Gyllenhaal
16. Liam Hemsworth
15. Ian Somerhalder
14. Orlando Bloom
13. George Clooney
12. Henry Cavill
11. Gerard Butler
10. Channing Tatum
9. Brad Pitt
8. Chris Hemsworth
7. Josh Duhamel
6. Johnny Depp
5. Bradley Cooper

This is probably my favourite story of the day because it’s hilarious and insane. Apparently Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are at odds over a few potential wedding guests, namely… Jonah Hill and Quentin Tarantino? Brad wants them there, Angelina says no way in hell – what will happen? Oh wait, I forgot to add that Philip Seymour Hoffman isn’t welcome, either. Now THAT one is cold as ice. I can see Jonah because he’s an asshole and Quentin is a bit insane, but why not Philip? He’s getting clean! Angelina, noooooo!
From The Sun:
The actor’s missus has banned him from inviting some of his heavier-drinking pals to the bash.
Angelina has given strict instructions for JONAH HILL, QUENTIN TARANTINO and PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN to be left off the list of invitations in case they get too leathered.
She has also warned that his best friend GEORGE CLOONEY needs to control his wine intake at the nuptials.
A source said: “Angelina wants the whole affair to be very civilised and is concerned about the habits of some of Brad’s more raucous friends.
“She thinks that if Jonah and Quentin come, they’ll hit the bar early on and cause a commotion.”
Brad’s pals aren’t the only problem being ironed out before their big day – the couple are also disagreeing over who should be best man.
Angelina is keen for her brother James to have the gig, while Brad thinks his brother Doug should take on the role.
Either way, they should definitely hold back on any Dutch courage before the wedding starts.
First of all, no one tells the Silver Fox to control his wine intake. Second of all, this story is so great because it’s so regular. I love the idea of Angelina giving Brad a hard time about the wedding guests. Ugh, God help me, I’m totally starting to love Brangelina. :(

I guess we’re supposed to applaud Brad Pitt for thinking Angelina Jolie is still sexy even after undergoing a double mastectomy (and possibly having her ovaries removed, as well), and indeed it’s wonderful that he’s so ~progressive~ and supportive and they’re still totally into humping on each other despite their busy schedules, their 8,000 kids and having been together for a while. That’s true love, y’all.
I sort of feel bad for Brad, in a sense. He’s been promoting World War Z and all anyone seems to want to ask him on the red carpet is about how Angelina is and how he feels about what she’s done, etc. Indeed, Angelina’s experience and her openness in sharing it is courageous and wonderful and I’m so glad it’s started a dialogue in the wider world. But also, she’s stopped talking about it and declined to give interviews, so what makes people think that Brad feels like giving soundbites on something his wife is done discussing?
Brad was nice enough to humour some journalists on the red carpet for World War Z‘s Los Angeles premiere last Thurdsay, where he said the following (via People):
“She’s getting ready for World Refugee Day” this Thursday, Pitt told reporters on the red carpet, while Jolie was in Los Angeles.
Asked to describe his feelings about Jolie after she publicly announced her decision to undergo a preventative double mastectomy, Pitt replied: “She has always been the brave, bold individual that I fell for – and sexy as ever.”
Well, that’s great – and I mean that. But now that’s enough. STOP ASKING THEM ABOUT THIS.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are easily one of the most hated celebrity couples ever, right? Radaronline polled a whole mess of people and compiled a list of 14 celebrity couples that people absolutely hate and Kim and Kanye didn’t even make the list! Shocker! These lists are based on pretty much nothing, but they’re so fun; from the most hated celebrities to the ugliest male celebs, I know I like a good stupid list.
I don’t think these are actually in a particular order, in terms of most to least. The first ones on the list are Rihanna and Chris Brown. Who are the rest?Click to find out.

Jennifer Aniston will be forever linked to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, so I hope she and the soon-to-be Mr. Aniston are okay with that. Even Debbie Reynolds brought up the legendary love triangle in an interview she did with The Sun. She likes the Anison/Pitt/Jolie mess to her own legendary love triangle. From The Sun:
I wish I could have been more enlightened at 18 and learned more about men because I could have avoided all the traps.
My first husband ran off with Elizabeth Taylor. A light suddenly dawned. He was away working in New York and staying at the same hotel as Elizabeth. So I phoned her room — not his.
He picked up the phone so I said: “Eddie, do you mind rolling over and telling Elizabeth I want to talk?”
He started denying it, saying: “Don’t be silly.” Then I heard her say in the background: “Who is it, Eddie, darling?”
I stood no chance against her. I was just like Jennifer Aniston with Brad Pitt when he fell in love with Angelina Jolie. If Angelina wants someone, then that is that. Certain women have that power. What chance did I have against Elizabeth, a woman of great womanly experience, when I had no experience at all?
… Men cheat in all sorts of ways that I could never have imagined.
Ouch. I get what she’s saying though. But ouch to her and ouch to bringing Jennifer Aniston into it, even though it’s totally the modern day retelling of the Reynolds/Fisher/Taylor mess. Jolie is sooooooo Taylor in so many ways. Just total movie star glam. Oh and Debbie Reynolds also talks about f-cking:
I wish I had enjoyed more sex. I have only ever slept with my three husbands and one friend — and he was my one and only good lover. I was a virgin when I married my first husband, Eddie Fisher, and I was stupid and innocent. You did not get pregnant, you did not screw anyone, you did not have affairs. I was raised to think that if you behaved badly with men, you went to hell. I realize now it is puritanical and not very adult.
What a bummer to live like that.
(L to R: Eddie Fisher, Elizabeth Taylor, Debbie Reynolds.)

Angelina Jolie was incredibly brave not only to undergo a preventative mastectomy, but also to share that experience publicly in the hopes of inspiring other women to take control of their own health – a notion that hasn’t gone unnoticed by anyone, especially not Brad Pitt. The couple attended the London premiere of his new movie World War Z, where he told reporters how proud of his partner he is for her heroism.
From E! Online:
Brad Pitt is not the least surprised that Angelina Jolie has been so public about her double mastectomy.
“That’s who I fell in love with from the very beginning,” he told me tonight at the world premiere of World War Z in London. “The person that you see now is the person that I’ve always known and she’s heroic and incredibly strong and will attack any problem head-on and make it work.”
It also helps to have a great partner like Mr. Pitt by her side.
“Well, I think so I like to think so,” Pitt said with a smile. “We’ll see what she says.”
Again, I used to want to hate these two, but how can you when they’re obviously so good for each other – not to mention great philanthropists? Even I’m not that much of an asshole.
