Brendan Fraser Has a Lot of Integrity

Brendan-fraser The actor is prepared to walk away from a hefty payday because of a dispute with the studio over who should direct -- he'd rather not make the film at all if it means compromising his artistic vision.

This all sounds fantastic until you find out just what movie and directors we're talking about here.

Renee Zellweger Pays It Forward In Starbucks

Renee-zellweger Renee Zellweger. Can't really say I'm a fan. She's a little too wound-up for my liking and often looks just too thin, not to mention too squinty, and too puckered (and too waxen.) That's a whole lot of 'too's. But for about fourteen seconds this week I liked her just a teensy bit when she gave some dude a hundred bucks for saving her from a parking ticket.

Stop Watching Jay Leno Already, You Guys

Jay-leno-conan Because I am a small, bitter -- yet still hopeful -- person, I was kind of looking forward to Jay Leno's return to The Tonight Show. I wanted him to fail spectacularly. Like he did on prime time, but bigger. Late-nightier. Schadenfreudier. Alas, that is not happening, and lo, it is making me stabby.

Put A Fork In It, Soundgarden, And Leave It There

Soundgarden Do you follow Chris Cornell on Twitter? Me neither. Anyway, on New Year's Eve, he tweeted "I need some dough so... SOUNDGARDEN!" I totally made that up because I'm mean and cynical. Really, he tweeted "The 12 year break is over & school is back in session. Sign up now. Knights of the Soundtable ride again!" Oh, give me a break, Soundgarden.

Kate Moss Once Again Reminds Me That It Must Be Nice To Be Rich

Kate_moss Well look at that, it's 2010 so happy new year folks. As I was trolling around learning what the rich and famous do for the holidays, something struck me while reading about Kate Moss gallivanting off to Thailand for the umpteenth time to celebrate New Years: I think that b*tch stole my life.

Eric Braeden Leaves Young & the Restless, Takes Lady Tickler with Him

MoustacheBy Michael Roe

Where were you when you heard that Eric Braeden is leaving CBS’ top-rated The Young & the Restless as of November 2? Here, just a second ago? Devastating, I know. I’m so, so sorry. My mom didn’t prepare me for the news, either. She just blurted... You were being sarcastic? I don’t heart you. Anyway...

Apparently, Sony wanted to drastically cut Braeden’s salary. 68 year old Braeden’s response?

“What? I didn’t hear what you... hold on... let me turn up my miracle ear.”

Once he was able to hear them, and a minute or two of time required for him to process the information and remember where he was had passed, he proceeded to tell them what they could do with their offer. I’m sure it involved the suits’ Wiis. And, I’m sure Sony was all like, “Uh, Nintendo makes the Wii, Eric. We make the PlayStation.”

“Take your Wii, and shove it up your PlayStation! Now, kindly leave, or I will have you thrown out.”

He was in their office. It was awkward. Like, Hover-Round bumping into the boardroom table, getting all lodged and knocking over pitchers of water onto Sony VAIOs awkward.

The point is, Braeden was born in Germany, and you don’t take a German lightly, especially if that German has a moustache and, at 68, has nothing to live for lose.

Anyway, oh, what a moustache it is. Was.

Uma Thurman is having a Royale with Cheese

The_bride_kill_bill_uma The Bride is having a royal wedding.


I love Uma Thurman. Always have, always will. She is an excellent actor and a stunning woman. Hell, she was married to Gary Oldman which to me is wonderfully insane, then to Ethan Hawke, who apparently likes nannies and that makes no sense at all when you are married to Uma Thurman, so I'm glad he's gone.

She has always remained graceful in the press and appears to be a fine parent of two children. Now Uma is engaged to multi-millionaire Arpad Busson and I'm very happy for her. Rich is good.

Just Say No, No, No: Amy Winehouse's New Line of Greeting Cards and Wrapping Paper

Amy-winehouse-greeting-cards-wrapping-paper-emi So I'm wondering how the product meeting went, the one where they came up with the idea to market a line of Amy Winehouse greeting cards and wrapping paper. I'm thinking someone suggested a line of flasks, or perhaps a perfume that smelled like a combo of cloves and Jack Daniels. Then someone else threw out the idea of a line of hand towels and the room fell silent and the head of the marketing department shook his head and told everyone to go to lunch before he fired their asses.

Then just as everyone was deciding whether to go to Applebee's or HomeTown Buffet one of the new guys, the one who was real quiet during the entire meeting, piped up and said, "Hey, how about a line of Amy Winehouse greeting cards and wrapping paper?" Everyone started clapping and hoisted the guy on their shoulders and now that guy is president of the company.

Okay, that's probably not how it went because that idea is absolutely awful.

Sharon Osbourne's IRS Problems are Taxing

Sharon_osbourne Sharon Osbourne is many things. She is a promoter, a reality television star, married to the Prince of Darkness, an author, a talk show host, a cancer survivor, a mother, one of the 25 richest women in Britain and a tax evader.

I'm thinking those last two probably go hand in hand, because  if you owe over $435,000 in back taxes you must be making some bank.

I'm 36 years old and I feel confident that I haven't paid $435,000 in taxes in my entire career as a taxpayer.

Did I tell you what kind of fine $436,026 in back taxes will land you?
