I say that with lots of love, guys, because Jim Carrey‘s like the brother I never had (OK – the brother I wish I’d had). I really felt for him during his very public breakup with Jenny McCarthy, because I think it hit him hard (and if you don’t, well then. You have some light reading to do, friends), and I think he’s ultra funny and entertaining. Plus, despite the fact that he’s a big, bad movie star with a repertoire a mile long, he does fun stuff in public with his daughter, and that speaks volumes.
However. Cyber-stalking our precious Emma Stone? I know she’s gorgeous and talented and funnyman in her own right, but practically asking for dates via YouTube isn’t exactly … oh, wait. Never mind. I positively frigging loved this.
Good luck, Jim – I hope you get your girl!

“Confidence is the only key. I know a lot of people who aren’t traditionally ‘beautiful’ — not symmetrical or perfect-bodied or perfect-skinned. But none of that matters because all that shines through is their confidence, humor and comfort with themselves. I can’t think of any better representation of beauty than someone who is unafraid to be herself.”
But really, how magical is this girl? I know I haven’t talked about her since July, and I feel just terrible about that, but trust me, she was always on my mind. I just think there’s something so beautiful and refreshing about her, and I’m so excited for her life. And this little quote just makes my heart swell!
Let the Emma Stone love commence!

Is it me, or does this movie look insanely good? What? You’ve never even heard of it? Well it hits theaters today, so you better check out this trailer and GET SOME:
Seriously. Awesome. And could Emma Stone be any more lovable? And this movie. I saw the trailer the other day for the first time while I was sitting in a doctor’s office, waiting for my husband to get a colonoscopy. Good times, huh? So, I don’t know if it was the effect of all that anesthesia running through the air purification system or what, but this movie looks like it could end up being one shelved next to the others in my massive “favorite movie” collection.
You guys going to go see this business?

Here’s how my day starts: I wake up, I snuggle with my boyfriend until I’m on the brink of peeing my pants, I go to the bathroom, I check on the dogs, I check my email, and then I check up on good ol’ Evil Beet. Today, I got through all those steps admirably, and then once I got to the last one, I noticed that, in the morning links, there was a link titled “10 things you may not know about Emma Stone.” Talk about starting a day off right.
Just in case you don’t check out the links as much as you should (and you really should), I’m going to be a doll and let you know those ten facts:
1. Emma dropped out of high school at 15 to pursue acting full-time. She eventually finished via home schooling.
2. Emma’s natural hair color is blonde. When she was a teenager she dyed it brown. But, it was Judd Apatow who was the first one to suggest to her to change her hair color to red for her role in Superbad.
3. Alongside Rumer Willis and Katharine McPhee, Emma covered “I Know What Boys Want” by The Waitresses for The House Bunny.
4. She learned to play bass for her role in The Rocker.
5. In 2008, Emma was romantically linked to her The Rocker co-star, Teddy Geiger.
6. Emma is really good friends with her Superbad co-star Jonah Hill. She’s also close friends with Taylor Swift.
7. She convinced her parents to let her move to Hollywood and pursue acting by making a PowerPoint presentation to Madonna’s song “Hollywood”.
8. Emma auditioned for the role of Claire Bennet on NBC’s ‘Heroes’. She told Vanity Fair in their August issue, “I could hear that, in the other room, a girl had just gone in and they were saying, ‘You are our pick … On a scale of 1 to 10 you’re an 11… I went home and just had this meltdown”. The girl in the other room was Hayden Panettiere.
9. When she was younger, Emma was really into HTML and web design.
10. While growing up in Arizona, Emma acted in a local theatre production of The Wiz with future American Idol winner Jordin Sparks.
So there you have it. Now we know that the glorious Emma Stone can play the bass, is BFFs with Taylor Swift, and makes really impressive PowerPoints. I think I’ll go ahead and start building her a shrine now.

In this little video, you can see Emma be her charming, hilarious self in a number of ways, but my favorite is by telling a story of a time when her mother got wasted on champagne and had herself a good ol’ time by talking up Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie at an event. You know, the classic mom line: “they grow up so fast.” Love it.
Actually, I think Emma Stone could tell a story about anything – the Industrial Revolution, the Black Plague, the rise and fall of everyone’s favorite boy band, The Monkees – and it would be just delightful. Is that an accurate assessment?

This video was taped at yesterday’s Amazing Spider-Man Comic-Con panel:
In the video, an excited fan rushes to the microphone, starts gushing about how he’s always wanted to “be at Comic-Con, in Hall H, as Spider-Man.” Then, as he thanks the encouraging crowd, he removes his cowl to reveal that he is none other than superhero Andrew Garfield. (The fanny pack added a lot to his Comic-Con disguise, I think.)
Garfield is all nerves as he reads a prepared speech:
Stan Lee says that the reason why Spidey is so popular is because all of us can relate to him, and I agree. I needed Spidey in my life when I was a kid, and he gave me hope. In every comic I read, he was living out my and every skinny boy’s fantasy of being stronger, of being free of the body I was born into, and that swinging sensation of flight. And upon receiving his power, unlike most who have become corrupted, he used it for good. And I think that we all wish we had the courage to stick up for ourselves more, to stick up for a loved one more, or even a stranger you see being mistreated, and Peter Parker has inspired me to feel stronger. He made me, Andrew, braver.
