Robert Pattinson was apparently rumored to be playing Indiana Jones in a movie reboot. Which is just, no. I mean, I guess he’s a better pick than Shia LaBeouf, but personally, I don’t want to see anyone in Indy’s shoes but the original Indy. Thankfully, they were just rumors, which he confirmed to E!, saying,
I don’t even understand where the story started from. I didn’t even know it was being made.
But since we’re on the topic, let’s just throw down and do it: who would YOU recast as Indiana Jones?

Jason Biggs surprised us all by revealing he’s actually not Jewish, and now he’s surprising us again — by saying some incredibly mean things about former co-star Tara Reid. Yeah, Tara’s been a hot mess, but she’s pulling it together and I don’t see the point in kicking someone when they’re down (or, getting up.) But Mr. Biggs disagrees.
Lindsay Lohan stays.
[...] she’s got nice boobs, she really does. Lindsay’s got nice boobs. Tara’s body—I don’t know what’s going on with it. I don’t think she ever knows what’s going on with it.
[...] Lindsay doesn’t know what’s going on with Tara’s body either. No one knows what’s going on with Tara’s body.
Dude, come on. That’s a bit much.
I think he went too far. What do you guys think?

I know, I know – Kaley Cuoco has made this one almost TOO easy, because she’s come out in a round-table interview (with Zooey Deschanel, Taylor Schilling, Mindy Kaling, Edie Falco and Emmy Rossum) in what seems to be an attempt to be self-deprecating and has revealed that she hates the sound of her own voice, and that’s why she finds it hard to watch herself on The Big Bang Theory.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
Cuoco-Sweeting I hate the sound of my voice. I can hear it from a mile away — it’s nasally. Why do I talk like that? It freaks me out!
Deschanel No one likes their own voice.
Cuoco-Sweeting OK, because I feel like I have the most annoying one. It’s hard for me to watch Big Bang. I TiVo it at home to support the show, but there are 37 episodes on there [I haven't seen].
I mean, Zooey has a point. Have you ever met anyone who’s super into the sound of their own voice? I mean, literally, not figuratively – we all know enough assholes who seem to love their own voice so much that they won’t shut up. I dunno, man – I really want to like Kaley so much… and yet everything she says is annoying. Why is that?

Lea Michele has a new boyfriend, Matthew Paetz, who just so happens to have worked as a male escort for nearly a year. No biggie, right? The problem is, Lea apparently didn’t know about this and just thought he was a dating coach… and still does think that, thanks to his lies.
Lea Michele is standing by her man … TMZ has learned the “Glee” actress has decided to keep dating new BF Matthew Paetz because she’s convinced he’s no gigolo — he just coaches ‘em.
Sources close to the couple tell us … Lea was PISSED after we broke the story about Paetz’s involvement with Cowboys4Angels — a website that offers male “companionship” — and confronted him about it.
We’re told Matthew copped to going on a few dates with female clients … but told Lea he only did it as research — so he could understand what the gigolos go through and coach them through it.
This guy is good … ’cause we’re told Lea actually bought it, and Matt promised he’d never do it again.
Our sources tell us Lea’s not getting the full story … because Paetz has had more than just “a few” dates while working as a gigolo for almost a year.
First of all, how do you NOT KNOW THESE THINGS about the person you’re dating? Sure, if you’re just an average Joe, it might be easy to hide. However, Lea is a celebrity who presumably has a team of PR people constantly watching her every move to assure a) no one is fucking her over in any way and b) nothing is going to damage her career/stop their flow of money. WHO DROPPED THE BALL HERE?
Also, of course this special snowflake got uptight about his past as a gigolo. Pretty princess would NEVER condone such dirty, disgusting work, would she?

Lana Del Rey is a bona fide weirdo. We’re all on the same page about that, right? She was a wannabe popstar who turned moody chanteuse who sings only about pickup trucks, California, excessive drinking and blue jeans… and we love her for it. However, her reticence to discuss actual life issues – especially ones that effect her as a woman and, you know, every other woman in the world, seems kind of bizarre and confusing to me. According to Lana, however, she doesn’t want to talk about things like feminism because she’s not the person to ask.
From The New York Times:
“For me, a true feminist is someone who is a woman who does exactly what she wants,” she said. “If my choice is to, I don’t know, be with a lot of men, or if I enjoy a really physical relationship, I don’t think that’s necessarily being anti-feminist. For me the argument of feminism never really should have come into the picture. Because I don’t know too much about the history of feminism, and so I’m not really a relevant person to bring into the conversation. Everything I was writing was so autobiographical, it could really only be a personal analysis.”
I mean, I sort of get that. At the end of the day, she’s not an academic or a policymaker or anyone else who SHOULD be held accountable. However, she is a woman and a human being, so she’s 100% relevant. Anyone who’s living and breathing and walking on this earth is relevant, particularly women.
You might also be (not) surprised to learn that Lana really wants to die because she thinks it’ll be a “relief”:
She has also been denounced for video clips that culminate in her death: by drowning, by falling, by choking. The video for “Born To Die” ends with her in a boyfriend’s arms, inert and covered in blood. She agrees that her videos have often been “exploring ways to die,” she said, adding: “I love the idea that it’ll all be over. It’s just a relief, really. I’m scared to die, but I want to die.” The title song of “Ultraviolence” ventures into precarious territory. In an arrangement that melds Baroque dirge and wah-wah guitar, the singer describes herself as “filled with poison but blessed with beauty and rage,” and goes on to quote a fraught 1962 song from the Crystals, “He Hit Me (And It Felt Like a Kiss).”
I don’t think I’ll ever understand Lana Del Rey… and maybe that’s the point.
