Ashton Kutcher gets honest: 'I know exactly what films I've done that f--ing suck donkey'

Say this for Ashton Kutcher: he’s not as dim as the characters he plays.

The former model who has made a career out of playing lovable dummies (with a penchant for taking their clothes off) knows that some of his movies haven’t exactly been the greatest. In an Esquire profile, Kutcher told the magazine, “I know exactly what films I’ve done that f—ing suck donkey. And I know the ones that are good, that people like. And I know it not because of the box office, because the box office is not going to tell you the truth. I know it because I have friends that don’t hold back. They don’t depend on me for money or employment. They’re just friends. Friends tell the truth.”

While he doesn’t call out any movies specifically, the writer of the profile says the only good movie Kutcher has ever made – sorry, fans of No Strings Attached —  is Dude, Where’s My Car? But while his track record may not be great, Kutcher does seem excited about his upcoming film project, the Steve Jobs biopic jOBS that is being released April 19 after premiering at Sundance last month. “I think it turned out really well,” he told the magazine.

'The Notebook' gets an 'Honest Trailer' makeover -- VIDEO

How many jokes about The Notebook have you heard today? No movie romance of the last ten years has generated more headlines – or aired more times on cable.

So it seems only natural that Screen Junkies would finally release their parody of the Rachel McAdams/Ryan Gosling flick just in time for Valentine’s Day. The trailer explains that The Notebook is there to remind us “no matter how much you love each other, you’re both going to grow old and die,” and that this is the film “that paved the way for people to form unrealistic expectations of their real-life relationships.” That tends to happen when you cast Ryan “Perfection” Gosling in a lead role.

'Saturday Night Live' recap: The girls beliebe, and Justin Bieber tries to prove he's more than a teen idol

The Beliebers were out in full force last night for Saturday Night Bieber. For Justin Bieber’s Saturday Night Live hosting debut, the audience was packed – at least volume-wise—with girls that were definitely suffering from some serious Bieber Fever. This was great news for the singer, who seemed most in his element when he was flirty with the camera for the teens at home. The show didn’t miss an opportunity to remind viewers why he was on the program: He’s a teen idol! The girls love him! It’s a good thing he’s still got that demographic locked up (they screamed for just about everything he did last night, whether it was a dance move, a wink or a surprisingly frequent crotch grab) because after last night, it’s unlikely he gained any more adult fans.

While Bieber was in almost every sketch – and, to his credit, wasn’t noticeably reading cue cards – anyone hoping he would follow in the path of another Justin was surely disappointed. For one thing, he mostly did variations on one character – The Teen Idol – and unfortunately, not a whole lot of it landed. It’s too bad they couldn’t do more musical stuff with him. Something comical that also had him singing would have been a great way to merge his fanbase with regular Saturday Night Live viewers, such as the recurring sketch from a few years ago (that was also a Timberlake fav.) “Bring It On Down To…” Alas, it wasn’t meant to be.

The cold opener, naturally, focused on the Super Bowl blackout and the resulting free-for-all that occurred among sports analysts when they found out they had to fill 30 minutes of air time  but had absolutely nothing to say. The sketch was likely born out of Seth Meyers’ own tweet during the blackout last week: “Who is more likely to cramp up: The players after the layoff or the studio analysts trying to fill time?” Answering his own question: It was the analysts, anchored by Kenan Thompson who repeatedly tried to throw it to reporters on the field, who also had absolutely nothing else to say. But how ‘bout those Two Broke Girls, eh? READ FULL STORY

Justin Bieber hosts tonight's 'Saturday Night Live': Talk about it here!

Neither rain nor sleet nor one of the worst snow storms on record could stop Justin Bieber from making his SNL hosting debut tonight. And that’s a good thing, given the hordes of Bieber Fever-stricken fans who have probably contracted actual fevers after waiting for hours in a freaking blizzard to get standby tickets for his show. I repeat: most of the Beliebers who braved Nemo in nothing but snow-soaked sleeping bags didn’t even get past 30 Rock’s doors.

Given these conditions, we can only hope that Bieber’s double duty performance — he’s also tonight’s musical guest — is worth all that sacrifice. The kid is certainly a charismatic performer; as EW’s Owen Gleiberman wrote in his review of Bieber’s concert movie Never Say Never, he “communicates joy in every move” when he dances and sings like “a happy canary.”

But that charm may not translate to the small screen.  READ FULL STORY

Dozens brave the weather to snag Justin Bieber 'Saturday Night Live' tickets: On-the-scene report

Bieber Fever got a lot riskier today as Winter Storm Nemo rages in the Northeast. In New York City, this meant freezing rain and sleet at about noon Friday. But nothing – not even soaked sleeping bags or broken umbrellas—could get between about 45 fans and Justin Bieber. The singer is hosting Saturday Night Live tomorrow night, and the Beliebers were desperate for tickets.

Let’s get one thing out of the way first: They know you all think they’re nuts. It would have been an undertaking to sleep outside in February, and that was before the weather took a turn for the worse. Everyone EW spoke with said it was the craziest thing they’d ever done. Kaitlyn Marhelko, from Pennsylvania, knew the chances to get tickets were slim. But that didn’t deter her. “If you ever get a chance to do something like this, you do it no matter what kind of weather is coming your way. It’s an awesome experience, and this might sound cliché, but you really do only live once. It is cool to try.” She and her friend Ashleigh Bagnata had been in line for about two hours and were still enthusiastic. READ FULL STORY

Jimmy Fallon presents episode 4 of 'Downton Sixbey' -- VIDEO

Two episodes in one week? Why, it’s almost as good as discovering you’re heir to yet another massive fortune.

Fans of Downton Sixbey, Jimmy Fallon’s Downton Abbey spoof, were in for a treat. The third episode ended in a bit of a cliffhanger: Questlove had fallen in love with one of the Downton girls! And last night, viewers learned that Questlove wanted to marry not Lord James’ “loveliest daughter Lady Catherine” or “smoking hot daughter Lady Amber,” but instead, perennial bridesmaid Lady Hedith (Fred Armisen). Because of the tie-in to the real Downton — money troubles! — James wanted to join the two families as soon as possible. (“This family is f—ed up,” Lady Whoopi Goldberg declared.)

Watch below for all the romance of a Questlove/Fred Armisen wedding, and to discover what accused wife murderer Higgins’ true crime was. With apologies to Al Roker, let’s just say the Dowager Countess wouldn’t approve. READ FULL STORY

This is crazy: 'Jeopardy!' goes all out with 'Call Me Maybe'-themed clues

Well, that’s one way to make contestants in the Teen Tournament feel welcome.

These are the clue categories Jeopardy! gave its high school-aged competitors during the first round of a game earlier this week. And this is how stately, dignified Alex Trebek sounded when reading those category names aloud:

'Warm Bodies': Which supernatural is right for you?

It’s time for Mystery Date: Supernatural Edition! While the whole vampire craze may be drawing to a close (Twilight: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 comes out on DVD March 2) 2013 is still on track to be a huge year for those that love the supernatural. Apologies to viewers who enjoy their zombies more in the style of Walking Dead, but it’s looking like the biggest trend is more romance, less death and destruction. Warm Bodies, in theaters today, centers around a love story between zombie R. and a human, Julie. It’s a great read – and surprisingly, in between the killing and the brain eating, a wonderfully original and charming boy-ish meets girl tale.

Which got us thinking: Readers probably have their personal favorites when it comes to the guys that portray these vampires, zombies, and werewolves (Ian Somerhalder, Robert Pattinson, Alexander Skarsgard, etc.) But what if we took the actors out of it? Based solely on the plotlines in the current books/movies/television shows, which supernatural should you, a “normal” human with a slight love on danger, attempt to begin a relationship with? The answer may surprise you – or help you justify a couple all-too-real conversations about an alleged hypothetical situation (ahem).

10 Stars' 'Before They Were Famous' commercials -- VIDEO

One of the most charming moments of last night’s SAG awards was Jennifer Lawrence’s Best Actress acceptance speech, where she thanked MTV for allowing her to get her SAG card by casting her in a My Super Sweet 16 promo years ago.

Lawrence is far from the first now-A-lister who had to pay the bills back in the day. We rounded up some of our favorite commercials from stars who probably wish that the ubiquity of YouTube didn’t make these long-in-the-past acting jobs quite so easy to find.

We only selected commercials from prior to the stars’ big break – so no Sofia Vergara ads for Pepsi or Brad Pitt hawking Chanel No. 5 – although there is another Pitt commercial which made the cut. Check out ‘80s-era Pitt, as well as nine more “before they were famous” ads below. READ FULL STORY
