Video: Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel serve up three scoops of 'Sex Tape'

Even before they first teamed up in 2011’s Bad Teacher, Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel shared the same no-shame-no-gain approach to comedy. Now the two stars reunite for more awkward yuks in Sex Tape (rated R, out July 18), playing a married couple with kids who decide to revive a flaccid love life by making their own private porno—hilariously re-creating every position in The Joy of Sex—which naturally falls into the wrong hands. What follows is a madcap chase around town, including a late-night visit to the home of a seemingly straitlacedCEO played by Rob Lowe (no stranger to sex-tape scandals himself).

On screen, Diaz, 41, and Segel, 34, prove to be very game—and amazingly limber. Off screen, they were just as playful when we pulled a Coolhaus ice cream truck onto the Sony lot in L.A. last month. Over three scoops of ice cream, the duo bared all about their love-hate relationship with kale, achieving the perfect naked handstand, and unsexy mariachi music. All while keeping their clothes on, of course.

Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe bring 'Les Mis' 'Confrontation' to New York club

Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe — a.k.a. the stars of Tom Hooper’s Les Misérables, a.k.a. the most important movie of 2012 or ever — sure know how to make a musical-theater geek swoon. The pair recently reunited in New York City to perform one of Les Mis‘s best-loved songs: “The Confrontation,” in which tireless Inspector Javert (Crowe) accosts the noble Jean Valjean (Jackman), who has been living under an assumed name. The duet was half serious, half silly, and all awesome, as you can see from the following video:

12 things we learned from the new 'Freaks and Geeks' oral history

Freaks-and-Geeks

Mark Seliger exclusively for Vanity Fair

Though it lasted only a single season on NBC, Freaks and Geeks is justifiably beloved — for presenting an unvarnished take on adolescence in the Dawson’s Creek era, for perfectly mixing comedy and drama, and for launching the careers of big names like Judd Apatow, Paul Feig, James Franco, Seth Rogen, and Jason Segel. And it’s not only fans who have a special place in their hearts for Freaks — since its cancellation, nearly every member of its cast and crew has said that working on the series was the high point of their career.

That’s a sentiment that’s echoed over and over again in Vanity Fair‘s new oral history of the show, which appears in the magazine’s just-released Comedy Issue (guest edited by Apatow himself). The article also includes plenty of fun facts for those who still love Freaks, such as:

Best of 2012: On-screen couples with great chemistry

Image Credit: Jaimie Trueblood

Whether they’re dancing half-naked on national TV or playing undercover cops in a film, the chemistry between these couples is undeniable. And with a superhero, the “sexiest man alive,” and an all-star on our list, it only makes sense that these studs’ other halves would be perfectly content with the match-up.

Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield, The Amazing Spider-Man
Stone and Garfield made such a convincing super couple in the film that they were ”bitten” off-screen as well. Their chemistry was palpable anytime they shared a scene, especially during their romantic rooftop kiss when the webslinger swept Gwen Stacy off her dainty feet.

Ashton Kutcher is highest-paid TV actor, followed by Hugh Laurie and Ray Romano

Ashton Kutcher owes Charlie Sheen big time. Since replacing Sheen on Two and a Half Men, Kutcher has rocketed to the No. 1 spot on Forbes’ list of highest paid TV actors. The business magazine unveiled the list on Wednesday, following the July announcement of TV’s highest paid actresses.

Between May 2011 and May 2012, Ashton Kutcher earned $24 million, Forbes estimates. Last year, Sheen was in the top spot with $40 million, but this year he didn’t even make the list. Kutcher’s earnings are also boosted by his appearances in Nikon camera commercials and his continued investments in Silicon Valley. He got in early on Skype, Spotify and Airbnb.

Kutcher’s Two and a Half Men co-star Jon Cryer also made Forbes’ top 10, moving down from spot No. 4 to No. 7 but earning $2 million more than he did from May 2010 to May 2011.

Others who made the list for a second consecutive year are Ray Romano, Mark Harmon, Patrick Dempsey and Hugh Laurie. Check out the full list below: READ FULL STORY

Hillary Clinton to Jason Segel: 'I love you man, but I won't be in your movie'

Click through to see how the most powerful woman in the world gave Segel the gentle brush-off and which co-star she won’t work without (hint: it’s not Bill). READ FULL STORY

How does 'The Five-Year Engagement' stack up to 'Bridesmaids'?

Not every raunchy romantic comedy needs to be compared to Bridesmaids, but when the tag “From the producer of Bridesmaids” is proudly slapped onto every piece of marketing for The Five-Year Engagement, the studio is practically begging us to draw parallels. Judging from so-so reviews and disappointing box office returns, The Five-Year Engagement didn’t even come close to connecting with audiences the way Bridesmaids did last year. Personally, I liked Engagement quite a bit and thought it was a solid showing from the Jason Segel-Nicholas Stoller writing team and far from Judd Apatow’s worst movie. Here’s how I thought the two wedding-themed movies stack up in a few key areas. (I’ll throw up a SPOILER ALERT! even though you should pretty much know by the title how this love story ends up).
