Andy Dick Is The Worst Jewel Thief Ever

Andy+Dick

Oh Andy Dick, you’re backsliding again. Just when you think this guy might be okay, he pulls another stunt. He’s been arrested again, in Hollywood, this time for suspicion of felony grand theft, which is a fancy way of saying he stole an expensive necklace. More from E!:

According to People magazine, the 48-year-old troubled actor and comedian is accused of stealing a necklace last week. He was reportedly riding a bicycle in town and stopped next to a man, asking him if he could look at his chain. The man agreed and handed over the necklace, reportedly worth $1,000, and the allegedly actor rode off with it. The man then reported the incident to police, according to the magazine.

Dick was arrested in a well-trafficked area of Hollywood, located near many nightclubs, on Friday at 11:10 p.m., according to police records. He was detained on suspicion of felony grand theft, a spokesperson told E! News. The actor was released at 5:20 a.m. on Saturday after a $25,000 bond was posted. Dick has a Dec. 4 court date.

If convicted, he could be sentenced to a maximum punishment of three years in state prison. If he ends up being charged with a misdemeanor, it drops to one year.

The article also goes on to say it’s “unclear” if Mr. Dick was “under the influence” at the time of his arrest. I’m betting he was.

Listen, it may sound crazy, but I was rooting for the guy. I really liked him on Dancing with the Stars. He showed a shitload of remorse for his errant ways and behavior, and really endeared himself to the audience. But he’s just throwing that out the window, and I don’t know how much longer I can root for him.

This whole story is so bizarre. Who the hell grabs someone’s necklace and takes off on a bicycle? Worst jewel thief ever.

Are YOU rooting for Andy Dick? Or are you just totally over him?

Bradley Cooper, Clean-Shaven: Hell Yes or God No?

bradley-cooper

Bradley Cooper, master manipulator, shaved his beard, and the world took notice. Specifically E!, who posted the above photo, wondering who that man was (“Bradley Cooper, Is That You?” they asked. “Actor Nearly Unrecognizable Without His Beard.”) I don’t think it’s quite that extreme, E!. You can still tell it’s Bradley Cooper, although it is quite a change. He ALMOST looks like Ryan Gosling.

So because he took such a leap, it’s time to ask you guys: is this new look a “hell, yes”, or a “God, no”? As far as male facial looks go, it’s world’s better than James Franco’s shaved head, which is terrifying on so many levels.

But I’m gonna vote “hell yes” on this one. You guys?

Amanda Bynes, Bartender?

Amanda+Bynes+Troubled+Amanda+Bynes+Returns+bimfeyo64Zcl

Amanda Bynes has been having some troubles lately, both mentally and financially. One man is willing to help her out with the latter, by offering her a job as a bartender. Uh, can we say, “worst idea ever”? Here’s the story, from TMZ:

Chad Weiner, the managing partner of State Social House in West Hollywood, tells TMZ … he’s got an apron and a bottle opener with Amanda’s name on it … all she needs to do is say yes.

TMZ broke the story … Amanda wants to live a “normal life,” and make some money — and she thinks bartending is the way to go.

Chad says his spot on the Strip is perfect for Amanda, since his staff knows her and would love to teach her the ropes. As for her schizophrenia … Chad has a pay it forward attitude — telling us he’d like to give Amanda a second chance, because he once got one when he was battling substance abuse.

Okay, look, I really do appreciate the sentiment here — the one of giving people second chances. But a bar is the last place Bynes needs to be. She can’t work at a bar, that’s like giving BoJack Horseman a job at a bar. And if you’re not watching BoJack Horseman, I suggest you start now, immediately. I think before Bynes needs a job, she needs a lot more mental stability in her life, and unfortunately, with the conservatorship fumbles, it looks like that won’t be happening any time soon. What a mess. This poor girl.

Keira Knightley poses topless to protest Photoshop

keira knightley

Keira Knightley is like store-brand macaroni and cheese (instead of, say, Velveeta) – you’ll eat it if it’s there, but you won’t be very happy about it. It’s pretty flavourless and doesn’t leave you satisfied but sometimes, you gotta do what you gotta do. She’s okay, really, but I could never quite warm to her, and that seems to be the general consensus. But what she’s done this month to protest Photoshopping.

According to Keira, people are always Photoshopping her, particularly because she’s really slim and doesn’t have a huge chest. When promotion for King Arthur, for instance, they made her boobs SO MUCH BIGGER in the promo posters. That’s a regular occurrence in her life, so she showed her REAL chest for Interview magazine (photo under the cut since it’s NSFW), and she had the following to say about it (via The Times):

I’ve had my body manipulated so many different times for so many different reasons, whether it’s paparazzi photographers or for film posters. That [shoot] was one of the ones where I said: ‘OK, I’m fine doing the topless shot so long as you don’t make them any bigger or retouch.’ Because it does feel important to say it really doesn’t matter what shape you are.

Fair enough. Be proud of your body, girl – that goes for people of ALL shapes and sizes. Ain’t nothing wrong with that.

Salma Hayek says she’s not a feminist while accepting equality award

salma hayek

Oh, dear. Salma Hayek, what were you thinking? She was honoured as a women’s rights advocate at Equality Now’s Make Equality Reality event on Monday night in Beverly Hills – makes sense considering how much work she’s done on behalf of women’s and girls’ rights (she co-founded Chime for Change, “a global campaign to convene, unite and strengthen the voices speaking out for girls and women around the world”). However, don’t call her a feminist. That’s a dirty word.

“I am not a feminist,” she said (via People). “If men were going through the things women are going through today, I would be fighting for them with just as much passion. I believe in equality.”

Sigh. Look – I don’t want to argue semantics here. Obviously she’s done a lot of great work on behalf of her gender. But seriously? It’s 2014 and people are STILL afraid to refer to themselves as feminists? What is this world?

I don’t particularly care about referring to myself as a feminist. It’s certainly not something I go around on the streets proclaiming. But if someone asked me about feminism or being a feminist, I certainly wouldn’t recoil like that and start talking about men. Salma’s response shows me that she thinks feminism means anti-men, which… *buzzer* WRONG. It’s funny how someone who seems so enlightened can be so clueless.
