Pop Culture Pet Peeve: Have sex already!

Let’s talk about cooking for a second. Say you’re going to slow-roast a big hunk of meat. What’s the first thing you do? You pick out all the necessary seasonings and throw them in the pot. Then, you add the meat and let it sit for hours. You make sure to give the meat enough time to soak up all the ingredients, never forgetting that it’s there, until it’s time to eat. Then, you put the meat on a platter, cut it open to make sure it’s done, dress it up as necessary, and serve it. Sounds simple, right? Well, the same rules apply to sex scenes in television shows.

First, shows present the given will-they-won’t-they couple or couples with all the necessary ingredients to get fans on board. There are longing glances, small touches, a few kisses, etc. Then, the show lets the couple sit in the background for a bit, allowing the anticipation to build, never forgetting that the couple is there. Then, when the time is right, the couple finally hooks up in a scene that combines everything fans have come to love about said couple. And you know what? It’s pretty delicious.

However, not all shows know what it means to follow a fairly straightforward recipe. And in some cases, variations are acceptable. For example, Gilmore Girls was able to wait four seasons for Luke and Lorelai to kiss, which is a long time to let something simmer. So why did it work? Because Luke and Lorelai were not the centerpiece of the show, or the main dish, if you will. Gilmore Girls was about Rory and Lorelai and the town of Stars Hollow and all of the guys in between.

Watch Benedict Cumberbatch complete the Ice Bucket Challenge naked

CUMBERBATCH-ICE-BUCKET.jpg

Today’s the day. Today is the day when the internet might actually implode. Not only has everyone’s favorite internet boyfriend, Benedict Cumberbatch, joined the trend and completed the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, but he did it more than once … and one time, he did it naked.

After being nominated three times for the challenge, Cumberbatch completed it sitting down, in the shower, in a suit, on his motorcycle, and on his way to his car. In other words, he completed it in a T-shirt, naked, a suit, a leather jacket, and a white T-shirt.

What's it like to do an online 'internship' with Christian Grey?

50-Shades-03.jpg

In E.L. James’ bestselling Fifty Shades of Grey, one of Christian Grey’s 50 shades is that he is a very successful businessman. Specifically, he’s the CEO of Grey Enterprises Holdings Inc., which is filled with blonde interns running around in their nicest heels desperate to get recognized by the beautiful boss man. And now, you too can know what it’s like to be that desperate person with aching feet and little to no career-related ambition: To promote the film, Universal Pictures launched an interactive website where fans can try their hands at virtual Grey Enterprises internships.

What exactly does that entail? I enlisted in the program to find out. Unfortunately, I left without so much as a grey tie to show for it.

Pop Culture Pet Peeve: Not every sex scene needs a lift

There’s very little that’s realistic about Hollywood sex scenes—the passionate kisses in the rain, the way everyone wakes up perfectly covered by an L-shaped sheet, etc. But there’s one increasingly frequent sex scene cliché that especially gets on my nerves. It’s when, moments after the couple starts kissing and it’s evident that things are going to take a naked turn, the man picks up the woman.

My pet peeve isn’t about the move itself: I’m annoyed about the sudden overuse of said move (I can’t think of a single sex scene as of late that hasn’t resulted in a lift). And let’s just say that it isn’t always done gracefully. READ FULL STORY

'Hot Felon' Jeremy Meeks does not have a modeling contract (yet)

In a matter of weeks, Jeremy Meeks’ entire life has changed. After Meeks was booked on suspicion of felony weapons charges on Wednesday, June 18, his mug shot was posted to the Stockton Police Department’s Facebook page, where it quickly went viral, earning him the nickname “Hot Felon” and making him a trending topic on Twitter.

Felon or not, the nation was swooning over Meek’s sharp cheekbones and baby blue eyes. And despite recently finding out that Meeks is married, many still want to know what Meeks is up to now that he’s out of jail.

However, EW has confirmed that earlier reports of Meeks having a modeling contract are false. Gina Rodriguez of GR Media has signed on to represent Meeks, but according to GR Media, Meeks has not signed with anyone. He is, however, in talks with Jim Jordan from White Cross Management, so fans’ hopes of more head shots—sans orange jumpsuit—remain alive.

Stephen Amell makes us want to resurrect 'Battle of the Network Stars' (paging Mark Harmon) -- VIDEO

Stephen-Amell-01.jpg

With three weeks until he starts filming season 3 of the CW’s Arrow, Stephen Amell is hitting the gym hard, and we’re all reaping the benefits, really, as he continues to post his “Superhero Workout” videos on his Facebook page and YouTube channel. They involve slo-mo. So no, you’re not the only one seeing it that way. I checked.

I had two thoughts as I viewed the videos below. First, Arrow producers must be both thrilled to have a star who works this hard — and who, fingers crossed, helps the stunt team score an Emmy nom — and nervous that he’ll injure himself. I’d make them watch the slo-mo jump into those mats in Workout #2 on loop if I ever need to torture them. READ FULL STORY

Scout Willis posts topless photos on Twitter to protest Instagram policies

Is Scout Willis leading a revolution? (No.) But she is bashing Instagram.

Willis, a fashion designer best known as the daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, has started a mini Twitter revolution by posting topless photos of herself walking around New York City — and encouraging others to do the same. (The photos are, duh, NSFW.)

She’s doing this because she’s had it with Instagram’s photo policy, which doesn’t allow for any nudity, no matter the context (So, no breast cancer survivor photos, women nursing children, etc.) Willis posted a photo to Instagram of a sweatshirt she designed, featuring women with exposed breasts, and the image sharing site made her take it down.

Twitter, however, has no such stipulations. Just don’t think Willis took these photos because it’s crazy hot in New York City right now — #FreeTheNipple is so much bigger than that. Willis explained as such Thursday morning: READ FULL STORY
