Lunchtime Poll: Humanity at its finest?

Penelope-Cruz-and-Javier-BardemImage Credit: KCSPresse/Splash NewsJavier Bardem and Penelope Cruz made their not-very-publicized romance official by getting married in the Bahamas earlier this month. Look at them. Sometimes I can’t; it’s like looking directly into the Spanish sun and the sun is chanting “S-E-X.”

If/when aliens attack and/or humans need to decide who shall represent them in the universe at large, there will be no question. In lieu of Vicky Cristina Barcelona on DVD, we should send Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem. The overlord will say “What have we here?” and they will say “We are humans, from Earth,” and all other beings will have to assume that on Earth, everyone looks like that and everyone’s in love and everyone is sexy.

We must impress the aliens.

Bachelorette Jillian Harris and fiancé Ed Swiderski split: Let's play matchmaker for the franchise's singletons!

the-bachelorette-finaleImage Credit: Mario Perez/ABCIn the wake of the Jake and  Vienna’s recent split, a.k.a., THE MOST DRAMATIC BACHELOR BREAK-UP EVER, the news of Jillian Harris and fiancé Ed Swiderski’s reported break-up (confirmed today by People.com) seems, well, boring. Timing is everything, I guess. Had we not just endured the he said/she said fame-whoring drama of Monday’s volatile Jakenna (Vieake?) breakup special on Monday (and all its related tabloid fallout), we may have given a damn about poor old Canadian Bachelorette Jillian and Ed’s relationship, which seemed doomed from the beginning when cheating allegations came out against Ed the second they announced their engagement. But at this point, I give it a “meh.” With that said, though, we wish Jillian well — and both parties good luck on the second season of Bachelor Pad!

In fact, in the spirit of celebrating a second chance at love (or its close cousin lust), I asked fellow EW Bachelor fans to weigh in on what future pairings of former franchise contestants they’d like to see. (Personally, I’d play matchmaker for heartbroken Vienna and her former rival Ali’s recent controversial castoff Justin “Rated R” Rego.) Here’s what my colleagues had to say:

Kristen Baldwin: “Two words: BREAK. DANCER. Now Jillian can reunite with Stagliano and double date with Deanna, who’s dating Stagliano’s brother!”

Slezak: “There might be one woman left in the world willing to let Jake Pavelka put a ring on it: READ FULL STORY

Angelina Jolie in August's 'Vanity Fair': Open to working with Brad Pitt again, maybe on a 'Mr. & Mrs. Smith' sequel

vanity-fair-coverImage Credit: Vanity Fair MagazineAngelina Jolie is on the cover of August’s Vanity Fair, ostensibly to promote July 23rd’s Salt, but surprise, surprise, the snippets leaked so far say almost nothing about that promising movie and lots about her relationship with…uh…whatshisname…oh yeah, Brad Pitt. There are tidbits on their kids: Maddox is an intellectual! Shiloh wants to dress like a boy! The Oscar winner (speaking on the Venice set of The Tourist) also speaks about her acting career — namely, that she might be giving it up sooner rather than later: “It’s not the most important thing in my life. Acting helped me as I was growing up. It helped me learn about myself, helped me travel, helped me understand life, express myself, all those wonderful things. So I’m very, very grateful, it’s a fun job. It’s a luxury. Look, I’m at work today in the middle of Venice. But I don’t think I’ll do it much longer….Because I have a happy home….I got back from work last night, and everybody was playing music and dancing and I suddenly found myself dancing around with a bunch of little fun crazy people.”

More interesting to me were Jolie’s thoughts on a potential Mr. & Mrs. Smith sequel: READ FULL STORY

Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann headed on 'Business Trip'

Judd-Apatow-Leslie-Mann_240.jpg Image Credit: Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic.comAre the husband and wife team ready to work together again? Universal confirms that Judd Apatow is attached to produce Business Trip, a comedy about three women on a corporate trip that’s currently in development at the studio. Apatow is looking at it as a vehicle for his wife and frequent leading lady Leslie Mann (Knocked Up, Funny People). Apatow is also working on the comedy Bridesmaids, and the Jennifer Aniston-Paul Rudd comedy Wanderlust, so he may have his hands full right now, but the thought of him working with very funny Mann again should be enough for a preemptive chuckle or two, right?

Let's just buy Star Jones this George IV rectangular tray in sterling silver with handles already

Star-Jones-platterImage Credit: Anthony G. Moore/PR PhotosA tipster wrote in with this breaking scoop: Star Jones and Al Reynolds are still registered at Tiffany & Co. for their 2004 wedding. The George IV rectangular tray in sterling silver with handles is one of only four items left to purchase. Back in September 2004 it was only $10,400, but today it’s $16,000!

It is probably worth a little more now that I’ve finished typing that!

We here at PopWatch Gumshoes, Inc. suspect that Star is still holding out for this wedding gift. If she leaves the registry up JUST ONE MORE DAY, someone will eventually hand her her dream of a silver platter, possibly atop another silver platter, which would look a lot more fabulous and intricate than the pictured one but would not cost $16,000. She probably keeps the registry open in a tab and refreshes it every morning. Well, I for one can’t stand to see Star Jones suffer like this and think we should all chip in. Just a few pennies! It’s the least we can do.

Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer appear in horror flick 'Open House.' Think I'll stick to 'True Blood.'

Looks like Open House, a horror movie that features Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer and is about a real estate venture gone terribly wrong, will be coming soon to a theater near you. (Variety reported earlier today that LionsGate division Grindstone Entertainment has picked up all domestic distribution rights.) Despite their presence in the trailer (and every news release regarding Open House), the True Blood costars (and real-life couple) don’t seem to have very big parts in the flick, which was directed by Anna’s brother Andrew Paquin. (See trailer embedded after the jump.) READ FULL STORY

PopWatch Confessional: Have you ever been too jealous to enjoy an on-screen relationship?

As all of us House fans read yesterday over on Michael Ausiello‘s blog, executive producer Katie Jacobs is acknowledging that a Thirteen-Chase union could be a possibility in the future. Of course, they’re not confirming anything yet, but I can’t help but angrily eat some office chocolate and mourn this possibility while using Adobe to craft a Thirteen dartboard. Because, in my delusional world, Chase is mine. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m lucky enough to have a boyfriend who bears a resemblance to Jesse Spencer (yes, I’m bragging, sorry), which makes me brim with jealousy whenever I see Chase romancing any of his coworkers. I’m even pretty sure that back when Cameron was hooking up with Chase, I actually screamed at my television, “Cameron, back off my man!” before realizing I was talking about fictional people who exist inside a television set that does not respond to my angry comments.

Of course, since the person I’m currently dating looks like Chase, my jealousy does seem a teensy, leeettle big logical, right? But what if I told you I have felt the same jealousy towards people I’ve never met who do not look remotely like anyone I’ve dated? I’m crazy, right? I totally am. Because, as a child, I couldn’t bear to watch the Home Improvement episodes featuring Randy’s girlfriend Michelle, because did she ever defend JTT’s looks in the great sixth grade debate of who’s hotter: JTT or Taylor Hanson? I was the one college girl who didn’t tune into Newlyweds because it would make me feel the sting of knowing my 13-year-old crush, Nick Lachey, had already found true love with someone else who thought 98 Degrees and Rising was a totally catchy album with awesome spoken word verses. (For the time being, at least.) And then there were those kinky, difficult-to-watch cage scenes involving Lost‘s Sawyer, who just didn’t deserve that Kate, because he belonged to this Kate. At least, in my Davidoff Cool Water-scented dreams. (I will, however, let his relationship with Juliet slide. I’ve hit the seventh stage of acceptance when it comes to that hook-up.)

What about you, PopWatchers? Have you ever found yourself too jealous to enjoy an on-screen relationship? (Come on, Office fans. You know that you wanted to throw up in that this-is-so-not-fair kind of way after watching the Jim-Pam kiss on Casino Night.) Please tell me I am not alone here. For my psychological well-being.

P.S. I left out the part about me hoping at the end of Lord of the Rings that Elijah Wood would end up single because I had a crush on him AS A HOBBIT. WHAT’S WRONG WITH ME?

Larry King to divorce for the eighth time. Who should he marry next?

Larry-KingImage Credit: Patrick EcclesineAnd then there were eight. Ex-wives, that is. Yep, turns out Larry King is divorcing from Shawn Southwick King, the woman who happens to be the talk show host’s eighth wife. (King was previously married to Annette Kaye, Frada Miller, Alene Akins, Mickey Sutphin, Sharon Lepore, and Julie Alexander; a spokesperson for the talk show host told People, “His major concern is the welfare of his children, and beyond that he’s not going to comment about the divorce.”) But don’t feel bad for him — look how happy he is in this picture!

So, of course, this begs the question: Who will be lucky bride No. 9? I’m pretty sure Carrie Prejean is a no-go, but I’m secretly rooting for for the obvious choice: Liz Taylor, who has also been married — and divorced — eight times. Hey, she’s single, Larry! After all, he’s gonna need someone to nurse him back to health in case there’s an ecoli oopbrike.
