As award season continues, hopefully with an Oscar nomination on Tuesday for Shame‘s Michael Fassbender, we expect George Clooney’s Golden Globes joke about the actor’s private parts won’t be the last we hear. So we’re creating the Fassbender Package Punchline Watch. We begin with last night’s Late Show With David Letterman appearance. It was Fassbender himself who cracked a penis joke when asked how difficult it must be to play a role as dark as a sex addict: READ FULL STORY

For several years now, PETA has been running an advertising campaign called “I’d rather go naked than wear fur,” which has always fascinated me for two reasons: 1. I’m a human being with eyes, and the campaign involves taking naked pictures of up-and-coming Hollywood starlets who have reached a highly specific pinnacle in their careers where they’re too successful for Maxim frathouse-nude cover shoots but aren’t quite successful enough for Vanity Fair artful-nude cover shoots, and 2. Because fur is ridiculously expensive, so this entire campaign is essentially about incredibly beautiful rich people telling equally rich but probably less beautiful people, “If you were as genetically perfect as me, you wouldn’t have to wear fur.” Rich people are weird.
Anyhow, presumably you’re also a human being with eyes, so you already know that the newest PETA advertisement features controversial Comic-Con princess and alleged Ratner victim Olivia Munn completely naked except for airbrushing and incredible make-up, exactly as the Creator intended her.

You can take the girl out of New York City, but you can’t take the New York out of the girl. Emmy Rossum, star of Showtime’s Shameless, appeared on Chelsea Handler’s show last night and told a story about living in L.A. Explaining how different her new digs were from her natural Big Apple habitat, Rossum said that “a mountain lion came walking through the clearing and was drinking out of my pool, and I didn’t have the fear instinct. I had the New York outraged instinct, and I was like, ‘What the hell are you doing? Get off my property! I’m Brian Fellow!!'”

Kathy Griffin strips to underwear, but Anderson Cooper still more embarrassed by Green Goblin abduction on New Year's Eve
Kathy Griffin broke CNN’s “no nudity” order on New Year’s Eve when she stripped down to her bra and underwear shortly before midnight. Watch the video below. Sadly, we’ve yet to see anyone upload her and Anderson Cooper’s second most talked about moment: That bizarrely unfunny interruption of the telecast when we — and all of the confused Times Square revelers looking up at the JumboTron beneath the ball — watched the Green Goblin from Broadway’s Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark try to convince a kidnapped Cooper to become an anchorman on his World Wide Freak Network (WWFN). Maybe that bit would have played better if the Green Goblin had identified himself sooner, or had the picture and sound not gone in and out for home viewers, or had it felt at all timely. Still, watch Spider-Man save Cooper below in a short clip. Griffin properly ridiculed Cooper afterward, at least, with lines like: “This is what happens when I take a day off,” “If you think you’re ever gonna live this down,” “Was that your integrity coming up and now it’s gone?” (after Cooper coughed), and “After that last bit, I feel above you. Trust me.”
The Lindsay Lohan issue of Playboy magazine seems to be a hit. Hugh Hefner tweeted on Sunday that “The Lindsay Lohan January-February Double Issue is breaking sales records.” Though Playboy isn’t releasing official numbers yet, a spokesperson for the magazine said the issue is doing “very well.”
A spokesperson for Hudson News, one of the countries largest chains of newsstands, also didn’t have figures yet, but concurred that “we have noticed excitement in the stores about this issue … so we assume that the issue will do very well.”
But will it be a record-breaker? READ FULL STORY
In a recent interview with E!, Hugh Hefner discussed his initial ambivalence about Lindsay Lohan’s Playboy pictorial. The mogul explained that his Chicago editors suggested reaching out to Lohan, which “really came as a surprise to me.” He admitted he had “kind of mixed emotions about it initially.” Perhaps alluding to Lohan’s bumpy track record with court and rehab, he said, “I wasn’t sure where she was at in her life, obviously.” What else did Hefner say about Lohan’s shoot? See the full video below.

Queen Elizabeth II is feeling the crunch of the British recession. According to ABC News, she and the crown will have to make do with only $50 million of the tax-payers’ money per year — approximately half the family’s take pre-economic downturn. In fact, the royals are renting out St. James palace to corporate bigwigs during next summer’s Olympics to raise funds, and there are even reports that the Queen would welcome some help in paying her high utility bills.
Fortunately, there are loyal subjects who are willing to contribute more than their share during these difficult times. Take Helen Mirren, for example, who won an Oscar for portraying Her Majesty in The Queen. The sexy 66-year-old actress is auctioning off the famous red bikini that reminded so many of the icon’s timeless bodaciousness to raise money for the needy. “It happens to be one of the best bikinis in the world because it fits!,” Mirren told a British morning show. “The minute I bought it I loved it because it’s so hard to find a bikini that fits if you’ve got bosoms like I have.”
Pause. Breathe. Recover.
“I would love it to raise money for an organisation that I support called Age UK,” she continued. “I love the idea of this little flimsy summer thing is going towards helping old people stay warm and comfortable and toasty in the wintertime.”
One queen forced to pinch pennies at Christmas time; the other,
baring sharing her god-given gifts in generosity. O. Henry himself would weep!
Shame, the new film starring Michael Fassbender as a sex addict, obviously has a lot of sex and full-frontal nudity in it. You know the Steve McQueen movie is a heavy one going in — it’s rated NC-17. But if you’re a fan of Fassbender who finds him attractive enough to rent (and fast-forward through) his 2007 film Angel costarring the female lead of Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights — or just someone who saw the Shame red-band trailer and wished you were that woman he’s staring at on the subway — you’re probably thinking this film will be, on some level, sexy because he is.
The surprise is that it’s not, and neither is his character. There’s one scene that makes you think, okay, this is a guy I could like, and wow, I’m actually smiling, but that’s not what you’ll be thinking when the movie ends. Odds are, you’ll feel as hollow as his character, which is the intention, and, perhaps, disappointed — not in the quality of the film, but in how it, for the immediate future, makes it difficult to think of Fassbender as sexy. (Did I really need to watch him pee?) You’ll have discussions with friends about how part of you really wants to see him play a sexual leading man who is allowed to be healthy — not blinded and maimed in Jane Eyre, or maimed and suicidal in Angel, or in a love triangle with a woman and her 15-year-old daughter in Fish Tank. You want to swoon over him, and yet, you wouldn’t want him to sell out and star in like, The Backup Plan 2 with Jennifer Lopez. There has to be happy medium, and hopefully, some screenwriter in Hollywood is penning it as we speak. In the meantime, if you’ve seen Shame and need to bring the sexy Fassbender back, watch the interview clips below. It worked for me.
POLL: Why did you watch the 'Victoria's Secret Fashion Show'? (Note: There are more than 'two good reasons')
I know, I know. What a ridiculous question. Everybody knows that the only reason you “accidentally” tuned in for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, all 10.3 million of you, was because you left the TV on after you spent a wholesome evening watching Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer and got distracted whilst baking cookies. (For the models! Happy Holidays, girls!)
Are they gone?… Okay, so now that your judgmental loved ones and co-workers are out of the room, we here at PopWatch are dying to know: Why did you actually watch the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and help propel it to Tuesday night’s highest-rated show? READ FULL STORY
