Sunday’s Monsters vs Aliens premiere was a veritable who’s who of people you’re not supposed to be attracted to, but probably are.
There were a few who walked the red (or rather, blue) carpet that would be considered mainstream-acceptably hot (Kiefer Sutherland, Paul Rudd, Reese Witherspoon). But there were just as many celebrities about whom many of you have probably had the occasional raunchy dream, but were too embarrassed to tell anyone. I can tell you from my own dreams that Seth Rogen is very gentle and Hugh Laurie’s beard tickles. Rainn Wilson and Jack Black are on a few of your lists, I’m sure. Hell, maybe some of you are even attracted to that big, blue, animated blob.
Personally, I love Reese’s dress. But I can also see how some people would think it looks like scraps of Christmas wrapping paper sewn together.

When people get in your face and say, ‘This will pass,’ you think: Are they crazy? I’m never gonna feel any better than I feel right this minute and nothing’s ever gonna make sense again. And I still have moments where I’m like, ‘Nothing’s ever gonna make sense again.’ … Blame, blame, blame. You know? And it’s a really easy thing to do, and I’m certainly guilty of it. [You have to] look at yourself and go: ‘What part of this do I need to own? Which part of this is my responsibility?’ And that’s the painful work that you have to go through to hopefully get some real-life knowledge out of it.”

Reese Witherspoon has been doing press for that horrible movie Four Christmases.Â I won’t even watch the trailer on TV because of that puking baby scene.Â I have three kids and do not find baby vomit even mildly entertaining.Â Also, I think it’s funny that she has not done any appearances or interviews with her co-star Vince Vaughn.Â Could it be more obvious that those two hated one another?
Anyway, when asked about Christmas with her own kids, Reese told BBC that her kids likeÂ getting screwed over at the holidays.Â Let me quote this so I get it right:Â “I think kids do best when they only have a couple of things that they really enjoy. I try and stay away from the gluttony of things. They don’t appreciate it as much. When they only get one or two things they really like it.”
Reese, I get it.Â You’re really rich and holier-than-thou and you make your kids give 98% of what they receive to charity.Â It’s true;Â privileged kids don’t deserve stuff.Â But please, Saint Reese,Â don’tÂ tell us that they like getting only one or two things.Â Because they don’t.Â I promise.Â Did you ever watch Mommie Dearest?Â That’s one of the key scenes:Â Christina having to donate all her birthday presents save one doll.Â And she grew up to be one pissed off chick.Â Prepare for your tell-all in about 22 years.

Reesey looks absolutely edible at the LA premiere of Four Christmases.
Also there: Kristin Chenoweth, who looks fantastic considering her show just got canned.

Defamer has an interesting piece today about how Oscar-winner, box-office champ Reese Witherspoon somehow manages to be billed second to B-lister Vince Vaughn in their upcoming flick.
Is it simply that studios are too terrified to give a woman first billing over a male star, lest people then think the film to be a chick flick? After all, Vaughn’s last hit was The Break-Up, the rare romantic comedy with strong male appeal, something that marketing folks might have felt was in jeopardy had costar Jennifer Aniston been first-billed. Four Christmases isn’t a romcom but a flat-out comedy, but would it be perceived as the former if Vaughn was subservient to Witherspoon in the billing block?
Yes, when compared to Witherspoon, the presence of Vaughn in this film makes us more likely to see it (though still? not very likely), simply because the actor has a track record of enlivening even the most formulaic films with his improvised comic riffs. Still, we wonder just how B- and C-list you’d have to go to find a male costar whom the studio would allow Witherspoon to supplant. In an alternate Four Christmases, could the actress vault over Colin Farrell to claim first billing? Or will she have to settle for a part opposite Freddie Prinze Jr. to claim what, by rights, should be hers?
What do you guys think?
Are studios ever going to be able to give a woman top billing in a comedy without it being labeled a chick flick?

It’s a family weekend!
On Saturday, Reese Witherspoon took her kiddos, Ava and Deacon, for an hour-long hike through Temescal Canyon in ninety-degree heat.
Dude, Ava is the spitting image of Ryan. I’d never noticed that before, but she’s basically a female version of her father.
