Scarlett Johansson on hacked nude photos: 'It feels unjust. It feels wrong.'

Scarlett Johansson told CNN that she felt wronged by the illegal phone hacking that led to nude photos of her reaching the internet. In an interview about her trip to Kenya and other impoverished areas of Africa with Oxfam, she answered David McKenzie’s question about how she handles the unwanted attention of being a celebrity. “Just because you’re in the spotlight, or just because you’re an actor or make films or whatever doesn’t mean you’re not entitled to your own personal privacy,” she said. “If that is sieged in some way, it feels unjust. It feels wrong.”

Johansson’s attorney acted promptly when nude photos appeared online on Sept. 14, contacting several sites and threatening legal action if the images were not removed. “It’s an adjustment, but there are certain instances where you give a lot of yourself and then finally you just have to kind of put your foot down and say, ‘No, wait, I’m taking it back,'” said Johansson.

Best Headline of the Day: 'Nicolas Cage awoken by naked man with Fudgesicle'

Okay. I’M SORRY Nicolas Cage was Trespass-ed against years ago and had to live through a real-life home invasion by a naked man who loved Fudgesicles. That sounds terrible and the part about the leather jacket is not helping, either. But since this Reuters story produced my favorite sentence on the Internet today…  READ FULL STORY

Paul Rudd talks about going nude for his movies like 'Our Idiot Brother'

It’s a real bummer that Our Idiot Brother opened in theaters on a weekend in which so many people — including most residents of New York City — couldn’t get to the movies on account of Hurricane Irene. The little-seen movie turned out to be a sweet family comedy that was funny, sincere, surprisingly moving, and one that, yet again, showcased Paul Rudd‘s talents. And this time around, some of his, well other assets, too.

For those who did get a chance to check out the movie, you’ll recall that there’s a moment in which Rudd’s dopey, but well-meaning, “idiot brother” Ned brings in some extra income by posing nude for a painting. The always-delightful Rudd sat down with Chelsea Handler for Tuesday night’s Chelsea Lately to talk about that particular scene and what it was like filming it within very close proximity to the boom mic operator.

'Magic Mike': Who -- and what -- do you need to see in Channing Tatum's stripper movie?

I was just talking to a friend who has yet to hear about Magic Mike, and it occurred to me that there might actually be people who aren’t counting the days until it hits theaters. I do not understand these people. It’s a movie based on Channing Tatum’s early days as a stripper, in which he’ll star as the titular mentor to a younger dancer played by I Am Four‘s Alex Pettyfer. The cast also includes Matthew McConaughey (who’ll play a former stripper who now owns the club, called Xquisite), White Collar‘s Matt Bomer (as another employee), and True Blood‘s Joe Manganiello (as a character named Big Dick Richie). How are you not excited about this? If it’s good, great. If it’s bad, it’s Showgirls, and I’m roadtesting a VIP DVD edition. What’s the male stripper equivalent of the ”Pin the Pasties on the Showgirl” game? I can’t wait to find out.

The film, directed by Steven Soderbergh, starts shooting next month, which, fingers crossed, means we still have time for more casting announcements. (And ladies don’t count!) READ FULL STORY

There will be a three-breasted mutant prostitute in the 'Total Recall' remake

The problem with modern action movies is not that they are stupider than vintage ’80s action movies, but rather, that they have become so bland, so milquetoast, so flavorless, the entire genre rendered insubstantial by the triple tidal wave of political correctness, the everybody-kinda-likes-vanilla method of winning over the global audience, and the brutal tyranny of the PG-13 rating. For truly, who among us doesn’t yearn for a more colorful time, when action heroes weren’t so emo, when the fate of the world wasn’t always at stake, and when a wild dude like Paul Verhoeven could introduce a three-breasted mutant prostitute into the hallowed history of cinema in the middle of Total Recall. But on that note, don’t despair, friends. Because today is a day for rejoicing: In a video interview with Collider, director Len Wiseman explicitly promises that there will be “a three-breasted woman” in his upcoming Total Recall remake, which will be PG-13.

Twitter fail: When celebrities think you care too much

As a journalist on the periphery of the outskirts of the periphery of the celebrity kingdom, I can tell you that famous people are better and smarter than us common folk. Their stories are better, their teeth are brighter, and their smell… delightful. So when I make the commitment to follow a bold-faced name on Twitter, I expect to be enlightened, entertained, or at least belittled in some way. For the most part, they don’t let me down. But occasionally, I’m left feeling empty.

Take, for example, Hugh Hefner. READ FULL STORY

Olivia Wilde will have fake CGI nipples in 'The Change-Up.' Oh, for the days before digital nudity...

You can blame digital effects for many strange and terrible things. Thanks to CGI, great Hollywood trades like production design, makeup, and old-school practical visual effects have begun to slowly fade away, with smiling teams of faceless engineers doing the same work for cheaper, Gooback-style. Thanks to CGI, 2-D feature animation has entered a period of eternal decline. Thanks to CGI, every freaking movie and a lot of freaking TV shows are shot in front of greenscreens. Thanks to CGI, Jar Jar Binks exists, and Green Lantern exists, and in the fourth Die Hard movie John McClane fought a freaking fighter jet, because why not?

But if you ask me, the single greatest crime of the Digital Effects Era is more subtle, and yet also more profound. I’m talking about fake movie nudity, which first made headlines last year with Jessica Alba’s shower scene in Machete. READ FULL STORY

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:


Jake Gyllenhaal on 'Man vs. Wild': Top 5 Moments

On last night’s season premiere of Discovery’s Man vs. Wild, Bear Grylls took Jake Gyllenhaal into the snow-covered mountains of Iceland during a blizzard that shut down local airports for two days of adventure. Gyllenhaal wasn’t as much of a walking quote-machine as Will Ferrell was in 2009 (relive those highlights here), but he was arguably even braver. Below, the top 5 moments:

Jake and Bear cross a freezing river shirtless. Man vs. Wild fans know that Bear has no problem stripping down for such crossings — that way he can keep all of his clothes dry and put them back on after doing some nude calisthenics. It seems to me that if the situation didn’t warrant full disrobing, they probably didn’t need to get Jake shirtless. Though I suppose it could have just looked a bit unnecessary because the water never came above their waist and no one fell in. (How cute did they look holding hands?) “It takes balls,” Bear said of the crossing as they redressed, shivering. “Well, they’re right up in my throat right now,” Jake answered.  READ FULL STORY

Gwyneth Paltrow disrobes for 'Vanity Fair'

If you mention the word fishnet stockings, I automatically envision Anne Bancroft. It’s a Pavlovian reaction after seeing The Graduate when I was 16 years old — though in hindsight, I don’t think what Mrs. Robinson wore were technically fishnet. No matter. Well, Anne, it was a good run. May I introduce Gwyneth Paltrow’s Vanity Fair photo (below) for its On Jewellery calendar, which appears in the August issue. (Yes, she’s wearing jewelry. I had to look twice, too.) READ FULL STORY
