On her birthday, a celebration of Kristen Stewart's endearing awkwardness

Some of you might know her as Kristen Stewart. Others of you refer to her as K.Stew or “that chick who cheated on Robert Pattinson.” But regardless of what you call her, there’s one aspect of Stewart that everybody seems to be talking about, and it’s not her acting chops. The girl is socially awkward. That’s no secret. And sometimes, it does come off as though she doesn’t care about anything. Could her hair have looked a little nicer at the Oscars? Yes. Could she be a little more attentive in interviews? Yes. I understand the annoyance that many of you feel, but I also think her awkwardness is a good thing. And today’s her birthday, so hear me out… READ FULL STORY

Long live 'Bachelor Pad'! (An open letter to ABC)

BACHELOR-PAD

Dear Sir or Madam,

Why do you hate me? Nay, why do you hate the more than 4 million fans who willingly spent two full hours of their lives (or an hour and 15 minutes if you FF through commercials) every Monday night last summer watching the reality show equivalent of herpes searing indictment of our fame-obsessed culture known as Bachelor Pad? You must loathe our very existence; I can think of no other reason that you would choose not to put the Pad on your schedule this summer. READ FULL STORY

What's next for Julianne Hough?

Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough broke up over the weekend, and boy, did people have a lot to say about it. While the longtime twosome never seemed to inspire much enthusiasm when they were together, once they broke up everyone had something to say about the man that brought us the Kardashians and the girl from Footloose.

Lena Dunham responds to Lisa Lampanelli controversy on Twitter

One problem with all this “voice of a generation” talk? You may find yourself in controversies you weren’t even directly involved in. That’s what happened to Lena Dunham this week when comedian Lisa Lampanelli posted a photo on twitter of herself with Dunham, along with the caption, “Me with my n—a ‪@LenaDunham of ‪@HBOGirls — I love this beyotch!!” Naturally, this made a lot of people extremely uncomfortable.

Up until this point, Dunham – who again, was only in a photo with Lampanelli – was silent about the n-word controversy. But today, after some tweets from writer Shayla Pierce (who wrote about the incident), Dunham finally gave a statement – in 140 character increments, of course. (A rep for Dunham did not immediately respond to EW’s request for comments about the tweets.)

The entire social media exchange is below: READ FULL STORY

Shia LaBeouf exits Broadway show due to 'creative differences'

Shia LaBeouf is leaving the Broadway production of Orphans, citing “creative differences.” LaBeouf was supposed to play the role of Treat, one of two poor Philadelphia brothers who plan to kidnap a wealthy man. Tom Sturridge and Alec Baldwin are also attached to the production, which was written by Lyle Kessler in 1983 and is being directed by Daniel Sullivan.

Despite the departure, previews for the show are still scheduled to start on March 19, and opening night is April 7 at the Schoenfeld Theatre.

Grammys: J. Lo saves Adele from hydrangea huckster with a quick disco jerk of the thumb

Adele-Grammy-Crasher

Crisis averted! As if oozing Angelina Leg in a stunning Hefty Sack wasn’t heroic enough, Jennifer Lopez ended up saving Adele from a sure-to-be-obnoxious encounter with Grammys crasher Vitalii Seduik — the same Ukranian TV personality who tried to make out with Will Smith on the red carpet of Men in Black III‘s Moscow premiere and gifted Madonna those absolutely loathsome hydrangeas! Seduik somehow got onstage as Adele came up to accept the Grammy for Best Solo Pop Performance, but luckily J. Lo was there to throw him a scathing “Set Fire to This Pain in the Ass” glare and then shoo him away with a quick jerk of her thumb. Behold an international hero at work in the short clip below.

Sports Illustrated has revealed its 2013 Swimsuit Issue cover, which features 20-year-old model and untalented car-washer Kate Upton (again!) braving the harsh Antarctic tundra in an open white parka and hopefully fleece-lined bikini bottoms.

Start your engines: James Franco will act as Grand Marshal for the Daytona 500

Promoting a movie isn’t just about late-night talk shows and the occasional photo shoot anymore. At least not if your name is James Franco.

Disney has announced that James Franco will act as the Grand Marshal for the 55th annual Daytona 500, NASCAR’s season-opening race and its Super Bowl, from a fan-interest point of view. How this ties in to Franco promoting his Disney film, Oz The Great and Powerful, we are not sure — perhaps he’ll hold court in a hot-air balloon? — but you can watch Franco’s rendition of “Drivers, start your engines,” when the race airs Feb. 24.

As well as uttering those four famous words, Franco will also participate in pre-race ceremonies and ride in one of the Grand Marshal cars during the pace laps that take place just before the race begins.
