Eddie Cibrian adds to list of Great Pop Culture Moments in Bathtubs

Eddie Cibrian, star of NBC’s new fall drama The Playboy Club, is, one must admit, an excellent model for Charisma, a luxury home brand that includes bedding, robes, bath rugs, and towels. For the fall 2011 campaign, he was photographed in bed, of course, and while those shots are worth looking at (check them out here, along with a behind-the-scenes video in which Cibrian is half-naked but hearing compliments like, “Look at those sheets! Ohmygod!”), it’s the bathtub shots that make me happy. I love when male celebrities agree to be photographed in a bathtub because it always feels so random even if it isn’t. See: Colin Firth and David Boreanaz. Therefore, I’m adding Cibrian’s shoot to my list of Great Pop Culture Moments in Bathtubs, which, my editor Mike Bruno said I could blog “only if you include the ‘When Doves Cry’ video, which starts with doves opening double doors to a purple misty room containing Prince in a tub. As Morris Day would say, ‘So sexy!'” So, we have that. What else should be on this list? Other colleagues have nominated Fatal Attraction, ScarfaceThe Talented Mr. Ripley, and Pretty Woman. Off the top of my head, my submissions would include:


Ben Affleck rocks the Bieber hair cut. Somewhere, Tom Brady smugly notes that is SO 2010.

Either Ben Affleck and Matt Damon really are in the midst of filming new projects that require them to have unfortunate hairstyles (or, in Damon’s case, a lack thereof) or this is shaping up to be the strangest follow-up to Good Will Hunting imaginable. (Yes, even stranger than Good Will Hunting 2: Hunting Season.)

Alas, the old pals really are working — separately, sadly — on new movies. Affleck is starring in the upcoming hostage thriller Argo while Damon is working on Neill Blomkamp’s latest sci-fi venture Elysium. Still, while Damon’s new look is amusing (and kinda hot?!), Affleck’s borders on downright upsetting. (We finally regained our crush on you in The Town and now this.) Just a heads up, Ben: Justin Bieber could very well write a rap about why you need to change your similar haircut, which may, in turn, prompt you to grow a ponytail. We only tell you, because we care.

What do you think of Ben Affleck’s new look, PopWatchers? Do you like it or are you having a hard time unseeing Justin Bieber’s head on Ben Affleck’s adult male body? Post in the comments section below!

Ryan Gosling: Tell me, Jimmy, have you even been in a Turkish bath?

Ryan Gosling continues his talk show tour for Crazy, Stupid, Love, and last night’s visit with Jimmy Fallon was another memorable stop. He brought his “muppet” dog George (who insists on having a Mohawk; when the hair starts to grow out George becomes a jerk, Gosling insists) and recounted a visit to a Turkish bath in his new home, New York City. Watch it below. In short: It was a painful experience that resulted in Gosling licking his masseuse’s belly after it went in his mouth (“Don’t judge me, but you know how when you eat something weird your brain sends your tongue to investigate?” he asked) and a lot of tipping.

In the second clip, Gosling attempts to explain his new movie. READ FULL STORY

Taylor Swift announces new fragrance, and surprisingly, we're not annoyed by that.


This morning, the name and bottle for Taylor Swift’s first “signature scent” hitting stores in October were revealed. The name Wonderstruck comes from a lyric in one of her songs. “I wrote the lyric, ‘I’m wonderstruck, blushing all the way home,’ for the song ‘Enchanted’ about the first time you meet someone,” she says in a release. “A fragrance can help shape someone’s first impression and memory of you. It’s exciting to think that Wonderstruck will play a role in creating some of those memories.” That’s the best justification we’ve heard for a celebrity scent in a long while.

Per the announcement, the actual scent, which Swift developed with Olivier Gillotin of Givaudan, was inspired by her favorite memories and smells. “The flawless beauty of freesia, apple blossom and raspberry spark a swirl of vibrancy and feminine allure…. In the heart, a sweet surprise of blissful vanilla is embellished by airy, sun drenched honeysuckle and white hibiscus…. Notes of golden amber and sandalwood are woven with a kiss of lush peach.”  READ FULL STORY

Al Pacino as Phil Spector: Bring on the crazy hair!

Keeping in line with actors-playing-real-life-creeps-in-an-attempt-to-creep-us-out, Al Pacino will be starring as infamous music icon Phil Spector for an upcoming HBO biopic about the convicted murderer. On Monday, Pacino, who disappeared into his role as the late Jack Kevorkian in the Golden Globe-winning You Don’t Know Jack, was spotted out filming the yet-to-be-titled movie, completely decked out in Spector-eqsue garb. While Pacino certainly has the crazy eyes down (no aviator sunglasses can hide the crazy eyes), we’re still anxiously awaiting when they get to Spector’s full-blown crazy hair/crazy person phase. Bonus incentive for the makeup crew: Pacino may not even require a wig!

Still, this is all somehow less disturbing than Pacino playing himself and falling for Adam Sandler in drag in the trailer for the comedy Jack and Jill. Go figure.

What do you think of Al Pacino as Phil Spector, PopWatchers? Are you sufficiently creeped out? Or will you need to see the crazy hair to decide?

'Nail Files': Star and Painted Nail salon owner Katie Cazorla names five reasons to tune in tonight

I live in L.A. now, PopWatchers, so naturally I’ve become a completely different person. Last week, in a stunning departure from the norm, I allowed STRANGERS to manhandle my neglected fingernails and got a manicure over at The Painted Nail. Don’t worry, there was a work reason! The salon doubles as the set for TV Guide Network’s reality show Nail Files. (The new series, from Jersey Shore exec producer SallyAnn Salsano, scored with 1.1 million viewers and triple digit increases among female viewers when it premiered June 22.)

Salon owner Katie Cazorla, 33, is severely wacky — but in a great way, because at least she’s not faking some act for TV. “I thought reality TV shows were for slutty girls who have no self-esteem and like to drink. I love to drink but I’m not gonna have cocktails and make out with some random guy in a hot tub. That was my 20s.”  Below, Katie offers up five reasons — one for each finger — to tune into episode 4 tonight (10 p.m. ET/PT).

5. (pinky) “I bust out an old school gymnastics move for Candace Cameron. I used to love DJ and Stephanie Tanner from Full House! Have you seen her? She’s like a size zero. How does she do that?” READ FULL STORY

Why, Rob Lowe? Why?!

Oh no! Rob Lowe is totally going through with playing accused wife-killer Drew Peterson in an upcoming Lifetime thriller, and look at what they’ve done to him! The Parks and Rec star lit-ruh-lly looks like a cross between Sam Elliott and my dad. I mean, I love my dad. I might love Rob Lowe even more. But our overall analysis of People.com‘s exclusive photo of “Drew” from Untouchable? EWWWWWW.com. Plus, the 47-year-old (or 42 on TV, much to Chris Traeger’s dismay) is not quite pulling off age 57. Good for him?

You guys. What if Rob Lowe WAS YOUR DAD? Stew on that for the weekend.

Nick Offerman isn't shaving for the environment's sake. Join him.

What’s the best email subject line we’ve read today? “Nick Offerman’s beard saves the planet.” The Parks and Recreation star, a.k.a. Ron Swanson, has teamed up with Budweiser to promote its “Grow One. Save a Million” campaign, which encourages men to grow beards as awesome as his — and therefore conserve water — in advance of World Environment Day (this Sunday, June 5). According to Budweiser, on average, a man uses 5 gallons of water every time he shaves. The company hopes enough men will take the pledge to put down the razor to save one million gallons of water.

“The only thing manlier than growing a big, burly beard is ripping a big, burly beard off of a charging grizzly with your bare hands,” Swanson Offerman says in a release.  READ FULL STORY

Yankees - Red Sox rivalry turns violent, as Alec Baldwin slugs John Krasinski

The Yankees and the Red Sox engaged in another weekend series, and John Krasinski and Alec Baldwin took part in another New Era commercial celebrating the heated rivalry between two of baseball’s most iconic franchises. This time, things turned violent and Krasinski took one on the chin from Baldwin’s plumber-like fists. But the real hurt was Baldwin insinuating that Krasinski isn’t handsome. Take a look.
