In case you’ve somehow forgotten, this is what Melissa McCarthy’s face looks like. Her eyes are a light bluish green; her face and neck are fairly substantial.
Neither of those things is true, however, in the U.K. poster for The Heat, McCarthy’s upcoming buddy cop comedy with Sandra Bullock. On the left, you’ll see the offending image; for comparison’s sake, we’ve included the American poster on the right. READ FULL STORY

Have you recovered from last night’s Game of Thrones yet?
It’s all right if the answer is “no.” The last scene of “The Rains of Castamere” may have been the most brutal, shocking, heart-breaking sequence ever made for television — and though they’ve been primed to expect the worst (Ned Stark’s beheading, anyone?), Thrones fans who haven’t read George R. R. Martin’s “Song of Ice and Fire” books are still reeling from its effect.
I ended up putting myself through another episode of one the worst reality shows of all time, because 1) I’m a disgusting masochist in general and 2) more specifically, having temped during the worst summer of my life at a nearly identical company two towns over in Illinois, these dummies felt like family and I had to find out what happened. BARELY ANYTHING! But before I hit “delete series,” here are tonight’s Winners and Losers. READ FULL STORY
In retrospect, we should have known something was up with Amanda Bynes back in the summer of 2010, when she retired from acting, then un-retired from acting, then deleted her original Twitter feed altogether. Since then, The Amanda Show‘s former lead has been behaving more and more erratically — getting in multiple car accidents, dramatically altering her appearance, and declaring on her latest Twitter account that she wants the rapper Drake to “murder [her] vagina.”
And then came May 23, when Bynes was arrested for criminal possession of marijuana, tampering with evidence, and reckless endangerment. (She allegedly threw a bong out of a window in her New York City apartment.) The incident has catalyzed an even odder spate of behavior for the ex-Nickelodeon star, including wearing a ratty platinum wig to court and claiming that she’s going to sue the NYPD for both sexual harassment and making a false arrest.
How did she get here? Though the real story probably begins when a 7-year-old Bynes appeared in her first commercial (for Buncha Crunch) in 1994, let’s start instead a little more than a year ago, when Bynes had her first brush with the law.
You’re a pretty girl. You’ve got some acting chops. You come out to Hollywood and try to give the whole thing a go, and suddenly, you’re just average. That wild hair has become a liability. Those pretty eyes are a little too dull and oh, maybe just a centimeter too close together. Those lips could be a little fuller. And that waistline, well, let’s just say you should think twice before digging into that bread basket at dinner.
It happens all the time in real life. Is it a surprise that not even our animated images are safe from enduring a few cosmetic improvements? And for Merida, the tomboyish heroine of Disney and Pixar’s Oscar-winning Brave, she apparently needed a few enhancements before being unveiled as the 11th official Disney Princess.
So, without further delay, behold, the new and “improved” Merida.
Randy Jackson — who’s officially departing American Idol — gets a bad rep. Just look at him up there. Clearly he has the most productive things to say on the season 12 judging panel! Below, my half-assed tribute to an inflated animal balloon (the producers made me do it!):
Yo, You Feel Me? 10 Things Randy Jackson Always Did Beautifully #InItToWinIt
10. Created Catchphrases: It’s a Comeback Kid story for the ages: The Dawg somehow overcame a severely limited vocabulary to conjure up gorgeous nonsense words and phrases — “Pitchy!” “You can sing the phone book!” “Blow it out the box!” “For me, for you!” — that would flourish for years (due to Randy’s refusal to quit saying them).

Lindsay Lohan has a few more confessions from a broken heart.
Before — finally – checking herself into court-mandated rehab for 90 days, Lindsay Lohan sat down with Piers Morgan for a Q&A just published in the U.K.’s Daily Mail. There’s nothing fans or critics haven’t heard before about how or why her life got so off track (she hits on sad but well-worn topics such as her dad selling a recording of her complaining about her mom, the stolen necklace she says was a misunderstanding, and how everyone — even court judges — “believe the rumors”), but it is rather interesting to hear Lohan discuss what the media has been opining about for years (EW reached out to reps for Lohan and Morgan, who didn’t respond to a request for comment). Read on for Lohan’s side of the story when it comes to drinking, drugs and (mandatory) rehab. READ FULL STORY
Bless you, direct-to-DVD industry, for churning out endlessly amusing extensions of movies that never should have been franchises in the first place. An EW staffer casually mentioned the third Ace Ventura movie earlier today, inspiring a group of us to reminisce about the most random sequels we could think of — sequels many of us were hearing about for the first time.
And so, in honor of both these little-discussed gems and the gift that is Friday afternoon, here’s a list of the genre’s most unassuming entries. Caution: It’s about to get all nostalgic up in here. (Like that’s a surprise.) READ FULL STORY
