Well, the Cannes Film Festival is over for another year, but still it lives on… particularly in the form of portraits taken by The Hollywood Reporter. Some of the biggest and best actors including Salma Hayek, Jane Fonda, Mark Ruffalo and more posed for the publication, and now you can see their shots, some of which are better than others.
Side note: when did Rosario Dawson do the half-head shave thing? I think I like it!

Celebrity guests on the premiere episode of Amanda De Cadenet’s new chat show “The Conversation” were quizzed about their favorite sex positions.
Gwyneth Paltrow, Zoe Saldana, Jane Fonda and Sarah Silverman were all asked what makes them most comfortable in intimate settings.
The racy question raised eyebrows for Fonda and prompted de Cadenet’s longtime pal Paltrow to shriek, “What?”
Silverman said, “I do enjoy a good sound missionary-ing… and I like to be manhandled.”
Saldana replied, “I like missionary and I like being on my knees too. And I love being on top… I love doggy-style or standing up.”
Candid Fonda offered: “While I am quite flexible and I can kneel, it’s not quite as comfortable for me as it used to be before I had a fake knee… (I like to be) either lying down or sitting up on a couch with him coming on to me, no pun intended.”
After her initial shock, Paltrow added, “I’m down with all of them.”
Ha! Of course Gwyneth Paltrow was all taken aback by the question. God, she probably hasn’t had sex since Brad Pitt back in 1997! And Sarah Silverman, peh. For as raunchy and down-and-dirty nasty as she pretends to be, you’d think she’d have come up with a better answer than “I do enjoy a good sound missionary-ing …” because what? She feels the need to play coy to The Conversation‘s easy-to-offend audience? No, because the audience isn’t easy to offend, but Sarah likes to pander to whomever she sees as important for the minute. OK, I’m done ranting about Sarah Silverman for right now. Needless to say, she’s not one of my favorite people in Hollywood, but if you’ve been here as long as I have, you probably already knew that.
Jane Fonda is still totally hot for her age (which is seventy-four if you can believe it), and her detailed answer (minus the fake knee thing, all that was successful in was making me cringe with my whole spirit) was, by far, the best and least-rehearsed, but I’m thinking she should probably elaborate the whole “sitting on a couch” thing, because that just sounds frightening and geriatric, at best.
Did you guys watch The Conversation this past weekend?

“[The candidates] all scare me, frankly. I get depressed and scared when I look at the Republican debates.”
Ever since the 1970s, Fonda has been better known for her politics than for her acting (or exercise tapes), but her statement isn’t really very divisive, is it? So far, every candidate stinks.
Where is the controversy? I want controversy, Jane!
Here is the quote that actually made my blood boil:
“I think it’s kinda cool that I aroused a lot of young men at that certain time, but [Barbarella is] pretty tame compared to what we see now. I’d like to remake it. I would. Maybe I will one day.”
What? No! What? I can’t even!
You guys know how I feel about Barbarella. I have been explicit about my Jane Fonda love. But nobody can do Barbarella better than Jane can, and no—oh God, no—I am not saying that Jane should squish herself back into that vinyl unitard.
I mean, Jane looks great and all, but—oh, you know what I mean.
Anyway, a Barbarella remake would just be redundant. There was already a remake anyway: it was called CQ.

So everyone’s going fucking nuts because Jane Fonda said “cunt” on The Today Show.
She was talking about the name of a monologue she was supposed to read in a play.
It’s not that big a deal, people. Get over it.
