I'll be there for you: Mini-'Friends' reunions we can't get enough of

After hearing the latest news that the Bings are back, we couldn’t help but imagine what Ms. Chanandler Bong and his wife are up to now. Although we like to think that they are busy raising two very competitive and witty children, and that Joey is in fact living in an apartment above their garage (and teaching their children the art of “How you doin'”), we don’t actually know.

So while our Friends-loving hearts still wait for a real reunion (fingers crossed), we currently get through the day by reliving the handful of mini-reunions we’ve enjoyed over the years. Here’s a look back at the many times that we’ve sat at home and remembered the days of Joey’s sandwiches, Ross’ divorces and, of course, smelly cat: READ FULL STORY

Jimmy Kimmel's playing with the big boys, getting a haircut from Jennifer Aniston -- VIDEO

As the old showbiz saying goes, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it — and if it works at midnight, it’ll probably work at 11:35 p.m.” So it’s no surprise that last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live — the first episode to air directly opposite The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Late Show with David Letterman — didn’t exactly reinvent the wheel.

That said, the 64-minute show featured plenty of memorable moments. Take, for example, this montage of celebrities reading mean tweets about themselves — a bit that hasn’t lost its punch even though it’s been done before. Bonus points for Bryan Cranston’s hilarious/terrifying contribution:

Breaking news: Taylor Swift and Harry Styles skied with Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez in Utah. Jessica Simpson and her loved ones (and her breasts) are vacationing in Hawaii. Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are back in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

Whose holiday vacation is least newsworthy? Let’s take it to a vote below. READ FULL STORY

Style: 19 extreme celebrity hair makeovers -- PHOTOS

Bold, short looks are taking Hollywood by storm. Charlize Theron is a rocking a new ‘do, following in the footsteps of Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, Anne Hathaway, Katie Holmes, and more. Check out some of the best and worst new styles of the season (and a few looks back on short cuts that made a splash in seasons past)!

Charlize shaved her head for the upcoming Mad Max, but this is the first time we’ve seen her pared down locks — a far cry from her usual golden tresses.


Will Ferrell crashes 'Chelsea Lately' in a golf cart

The new Chelsea Lately multimillion-dollar studio is paying its way with viral moments. Since Chelsea Handler’s move to the former set of The Tonight Show With Conan on Monday, she’s scored Jennifer Aniston’s first post-engagement interview and discussed her nipples, showered with Sandra Bullock, and now, been dissed by Will Ferrell.

Ferrell, clad in a baseball jersey and Ron Burgundy’s mustache, rolled in last night in a golf cart and interrupted Handler’s usually productive roundtable discussion. The comedian insulted the late-night talk show, then attempted to go on his merry way. His surprise appearance left the usually straight-faced Handler in stitches. “I can’t take him,” she said after he left. “I can’t take his body or when he talks.”

Calling her show “a joke” must be the The Campaign star’s means of avenging Handler after she insulted his sexual prowess during his last appearance on the show.

Jennifer Aniston gets 'verklempt' while talking engagement on 'Chelsea Lately' -- VIDEO

Jennifer Aniston will always be America’s sweetheart. Just look at the way her face scrunches up in glee when Chelsea Handler asks her about her engagement to Justin Theroux — it’s downright adorable. And how many 43-year-old women can legitimately claim to be adorable? When she gets teary, you just want to give her a hug, then invite her over to watch season 3 of Friends with you. Even tart-tongued Handler broke character to celebrate her pal last night: “He’s the greatest guy ever, and you guys make the greatest couple ever, and I’m so happy for you too.” So are we! Hooray! Let’s get yogurt!!

Of course, the host did also call Jen out for tending to wear shirts that show off her nipples… so maybe the praise party only goes so far. Check out both moments in the videos below. And for the record — yeah, you can kinda see some headlights in the second clip.


Who should host next year's Oscars?

The Oscars are like a fine red wine. They should get better with age. They should make you face-on-the-floor drunk with giddiness about the sheer glory and thrill of movies.

Unfortunately, the award show’s ratings have been as flat as an old gin and tonic these past several years, and the host/hosts haven’t helped. Anne Hathaway and James Franco, in an attempt to reach a younger audience, gave new meaning to the phrase “odd couple” as lackluster out-of-sync Oscar co-hosts in 2011, and Oscar vet Billy Crystal did his usual shtick, stepping in for Eddie Murphy as host of this past February’s telecast.

With the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences on the brink of announcing a host for next year’s 85th annual Academy Awards, set to take place Feb. 28, 2013, and airing live on ABC, here are several of our picks for who should host. Jennifer Aniston, we’re looking at you!


Jennifer Aniston pregnant with triplets (in new commercial) -- VIDEO

Every rumor ever whispered — or splattered on a tabloid cover — about Jennifer Aniston is true. Well, in her latest commercial for Glaceau Smartwater, that is.

The ad, produced by Aniston and introduced by Ryan Seacrest as a leaked home-security tape, consists of a string of jaw-dropping revelations about our favorite friend.

Here’s what you need to know about the Wanderlust actress: She’s pregnant with triplets and already mother to two (you’ll never guess who her oldest son is); she drives recklessly, exploits her help, wastes precious natural resources, and doesn’t actually possess the physical characteristic that made her Friends character Rachel so iconic.

The truth was indeed refreshing.

'Burning Love': 'Friends' don't make good (rose) lovers -- VIDEO


If you’re not blinded by Ken Jeong’s nether regions within the first few minutes of the latest episode of Yahoo! Screen’s Burning Love, make sure to stick around for the… most… shocking… elimination ceremony yet. Much to everyone’s surprise, including caddish leading man Mark Orlando (Ken Marino), one of the “ladies” sent packing was hot-bodied Friends alum Jennifer Aniston. Unfortunately, her famous figure was covered up by a panda suit. Big risk, big reward? Not so much. See who else Mark dismissed below. READ FULL STORY

Libby Gelman-Waxner Answers Your Questions...on theater etiquette and the evolution of Jennifer Aniston

No one likes to sit near a person who insists on texting during the movie, but even the most self-righteous filmgoer has probably sent off at least one instant message, even if it was during the coming attractions. Just be thankful that Libby Gelman-Waxner wasn’t two rows behind you. EW’s columnist is a theater vigilante and her approach to movie etiquette might scare you straight:

So glad to have you back! We all know how much you love the movies, so there is no way that you are one of those rude people who texts in a dark theater. Since that bright blue light must annoy you as much as it does any other rational adult, what is your strategy to get people to turn off their devices? Stare, shush, or launched projectile to the head, and if so, what works best? Thank you.

Dear Suzan,

Thank you for both your kind words and for figuring out another wonderful way to spell “Susan.” As for texting, first, I politely hover over the texting person’s shoulder and I whisper, “Everyone hates you, and not just because you’re texting in a movie theater. Everyone hates you because of your attitude, your aroma and because of everything you’re wearing. Your parents hated you, especially your real parents. Maybe if you stopped texting right now, it would be a first step towards rebuilding your sad, wasted life.”

If this doesn’t work, I announce to the entire theater, using a louder, more assertive tone, “Please, everyone, try to understand. This person is texting his parole officer, because the red light on his ankle bracelet has just started blinking. As human beings, we must demonstrate compassion, even to registered sex offenders.”

If the person still won’t stop texting, I quietly remove a revolver from my purse, and I place the cold, hard barrel against the texting person’s neck. Then I murmur, “You have three seconds to stop texting. 1…2…” Before I get to 3, I blow the texting person’s head off, and then I wail, “I’m sorry! I should never have bought a used gun!”

Hey Libby. What’s good?

Anyways, recently, under the influence of some friends, I partook in the smuggling and consumption of some alcohol at the movies. And this isn’t some high-class theater that serves alcohol; it’s illegal to sneak in Milk Duds from the gas station and six-packs of beer. So I guess my question is: Do you think it’s okay to bring some alcohol to the  theater? Not to dark dramas where it’s really serious but more like 21 Jump Street or This Means War? Inappropriate? Immature? Encouraged?


I completely understand the desire to drink heavily while watching most movies. When I saw The Lorax, there wasn’t a sober child in the theater. They were all guzzling vodka out of their juice boxes, and I noticed that one toddler’s M&Ms included Percocets. But still, I can’t really encourage anyone to drink at the movies, because you can end up missing so much, like the 3,083 penis jokes during the first five minutes of 21 Jump Street. As an adult, I believe that you have to look reality in the face and ask yourself, wait, which Jason Segel movie am I watching?

Jonah Hill: fat, thin, fat. What’s the deal with his weight?

I think Jonah Hill is adorable at every weight. Watching stars expand and contract is the great American pastime; I feel sorry for Meryl Streep, because unlike Kirstie Alley, she’s never hawked her own Organic Liaisons diet plan on QVC. I’ve also loved tracking Jessica Simpson’s pregnancy, because I think she’s giving birth to a Jeep Cherokee. Jessica is currently a panelist on that new show Fashion Star, and she’s much more fun, and seems smarter, as a plus-size than she ever was as a skinny singer.

I have a question concerning rom-coms. Why do they continue to put Jennifer Aniston in rom-coms when she’s too old to even be a soccer mom?  She’s over. Accept it and get rid of her. She plays the same person in every film.


I’m begging you to have a little patience with Jennifer. It’s always tricky for a star to make the transition from ingénue to young mom to playing, say, George Clooney’s dead wife in a flashback. I don’t think that Jennifer’s too old for rom-coms, but she may be too rich. Whenever I see her, all I can think about are those syndication checks, and it’s just really hard for a zillionaire to remain waifish and cuddly, although of course, Warren Buffett is still awfully winsome.

Maybe Jen needs to head back to TV, or do a play, or just get the hair out of her eyes. Or maybe she can follow the paths of various male stars as they get older, and she can become either a dull Hollywood elder statesman, or an alcoholic wreck with multiple mug shots. And then she can play a grizzled police officer who, during the week before she’s about to retire from the force, gets assigned to one last case, and gets partnered with a sexy young hothead. But even if a studio made a big-screen version of Cagney and Lacey, the leads would probably go to Ben Stiller and Channing Tatum.
