Better looking than Leonardo DiCaprio? More ripped than Mark Wahlberg? Leaps tall trees in a single lycanthropic bound? Look, at Table 6, blushing like a schoolboy! It’s Taylor Lautner! The Twilight star was anointed by Wahlberg himself at yesterday’s Hollywood Foreign Press Association luncheon that donated more than $1.5 million in grants to arts programs. The Entourage godfather quipped to his Departed co-star, “I am sitting at a table with a gentleman who is better looking than you and is in better shape than me. So we’re both out of a job, dude. Taylor Lautner! We’re screwed. It’s over, dude. Titanic and Boogie Nights were a long time ago. I accept it. I had a good run, and on to the next.” Watch the clip below: READ FULL STORY

Ricky Gervais didn’t bring it up, but two minutes into his chat with Jon Stewart last night, he found himself again discussing his controversial hosting performance at this year’s Golden Globes. Stewart, an awards show vet himself, felt the Brit owed him an apology: “Here’s what you have to apologize about for the Golden Globes: Making people like me, who have also hosted these events, feel inadequate by being that funny. By going out there and being hilarious.”
Gervais seemed unsure if there was a “but… ” coming, to be followed by some back-handed compliment, but Stewart was sincere in his admiration and the crowd approved. Gervais, who was on the show pimping his HBO special, Talking Funny, displayed some weariness from the exhaustive criticism: “This is what I think I should apologize for about the Golden Globes: F— all!”
From there, the two cracked each other up, poking fun at the uptight stuffed shirts who just didn’t get his sense of humor. Take a look at the extended, uncensored clips. READ FULL STORY
Even College Humor must think so, since they ended this montage of Natalie Portman’s hypnotic/annoying/adorable laugh during her Golden Globes acceptance speech with our favorite GIF from last year’s Globes.

Ricky Gervais says he will riff on Charlie Sheen during the Golden Globes monologue. Oh, you can do better than that.
On the Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday, Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais revealed his game plan for Sunday’s big show: attack the wounded. “I only go for the weak or the feeble. I’m not going to go for Russell Crowe or Mickey Rourke. Mickey Rooney, maybe! Betty White — I’m not scared of her,” the Brit told DeGeneres. Heads up, Charlie Sheen. (See the video below.)

Gwen Stefani is following in the paths of Jennifer Lopez, Eva Longoria, and Beyoncé Knowles as a cover girl for L’Oréal Paris. People reported that the pop star had signed a deal with the cosmetic giant, and confirmed that she’ll initially be hawking Le Rouge lip color (which we’ll have to take on faith, based on this black-and-white photo). Her first L’Oréal television commercial will debut this weekend, during the Golden Globe Award show.
Did you consider Stefani a lipstick glamour-girl? Does her cred actually enhance the L’Oreal brand?
Ask Ricky Gervais, and he’ll tell you he started his podcast The Ricky Gervais Show so he and writing partner Stephen Merchant could hang with radio producer Karl Pilkington and hear his childlike views on life (and monkeys). Setting the world-record for number of downloads and launching an Emmy-winning HBO cartoon version? Just the cream. The Golden Globe host called EW recently to plug the animated adaptation’s Jan. 4 DVD release and ended up giving us the what’s what on holiday TV, awards ceremonies, his Christmas-inspired 20-pound weight loss, the show’s second season (premiering Jan. 14 on HBO), and his next series.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Now that you’re a seasoned awards presenter, do you have any advice for Oscar hosts James Franco and Anne Hathaway?
They’re braver then me. The Oscars you’ve got to rehearse. When they said, “Will you host the Globes?” I said, “can I just turn up and do my own thing and not have a lot of cues?” And they went “yep.” And I went “fine.” So that’s my kind of job. For the Oscars, I’d have to learn a song and dance routine — way too much trouble.
