Antisemitism and Celebrities
Sometimes there are so much information about the world, it’s hard to keep it all in your head. How many municipalities does Greenland have? Who owns the Canary Islands? Do we know anything about Madagascar except for cars and that animated movie with comedian Chris Rock?
So we can forgive you for forgetting that Ukraine has been beseiged in its parliament by the All-Ukrainian Union “Svoboda” movement, a nationalist uber-right-wing Slytherin-esque party that is really interested in bloodlines and keeping up the traditions of the neo-Nazis. For the past several years, Svoboda has been gaining momentum with its anti-Russian sentiment, gaining 12 percent of the national vote in the last election cycle.
Which is all terrible, but you know, the anti-Semitic Svoboda party has been rising to power for some time. Why do we suddenly care?
We care because they started attacking on our own territory. We care, in short, because one of their leaders started going after Mila Kunis.
A U.K. ad campaign featuring Mila Kunis has been banned for misleading consumers into thinking that a skin cream could make them look like the actress named “the sexiest woman alive” by Esquire in 2012, The Guardian reports. The campaign claimed that by rubbing British skin company Rodial’s £75 pound lotion onto the skin twice a day for four weeks, you could get a “body to die for,” just like Ms. Kunis.
While conducting a new Interview chat with Mila Kunis, James Franco indicated that another costar of his is something of a diva:
The movie is a comedy, but it’s kind of an outrageous one, and this actress—I won’t say who, but she had a smaller role in the film—walked off the movie in Read More
It’s great that Disney and Sam Raimi finally sorted things out with Warner Bros. (who hold the old MGM copyright to The Wizard of Oz) so that the prequel, Oz: The Great and Powerful, could finally be released in theaters as it was meant to be seen.
If you weren’t aware, Warner Bros. claimed that the new film couldn’t make the Wicked Witch green, since that was something specific to their film, and not L. Frank Baum’s children’s books. So instead we get a Glinda-riffic Michelle Williams all in white, a fashionably red Mila Kunis, and a darkly chic Rachel Weisz (channeling Charlize Theron in Snow White and the Huntsman) as the hottest witchy witches since Idina Menzel took the stage as Elpheba in Wicked.
Wonders never cease. Who ever dreamed I could (or would, even on a dare) sit through a two-hour movie about Mark Wahlberg and a talking teddy bear? Or that I would (or could, even at gunpoint) possibly enjoy it so much? But here is Ted—a genre-screwing Donnybrook that defies description and guarantees, I swear, open-mouthed hilarity. It is refreshingly oblivious to the kind of political correctness that is going to be the death of us all. It is rude, raunchy and repellent to the point of almost being a send-up of the Farrelly Brothers, Judd Apatow, Adam Sandler and the rest of the ozone polluters giving movies a bad name. (Address your complaints to the nearest sewer.) It contains dialogue and depicts situations that cannot be described in a family newspaper—including the ones that are read only by the Addams family. It has nudity, profanity and X-rated detritus unsuitable for anyone with an I.Q. of 50. It is also creative, adorable, ingenious and devilishly, thigh-slappingly hilarious. Do not take my pulse. It must be the heat.
The American Society of Magazine Editors named New York‘s Demi Moore-referencing, pregnant after 50 photoillustration the best cover of the year. It’s certainly burned into our skull.
If they were giving out prizes for best ledes, the same issue of New York would be our top pick as well. Remember?
GQ’s annual man of the year issue is a split run, with covers featuring veteran man of the year Jay-Z, newcomer Michael Fassbender, bromantic Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon, and Mila Kunis.
It’s a quick return to GQ for Ms. Kunis, who shared its cover with a venti iced coffee in April.
In a bit of brilliant synergy, GQ placed Friends With Benefits star Mila Kunis on its cover and in the film, her sex-friend Justin Timberlake plays an art director for the magazine. We talked to Mr. Timberlake about what it’s like to be a GQ staffer late on Monday night, at the premiere after Read More
Terry Richardson may have shot Mila Kunis for this month’s GQ, but the Transom saw him walking the red carpet for the actress’s casual-sex rom-com Friends With Benefits with a beautiful brunette of the totally opposite vocation. The mystery Read More
The Wee Hours
Outside the French ambassador’s home the people of Washington, D.C., mobbed John Legend as if the city had never before seen a star. David Arquette walked out of the gates and met bunches of fans clutching outdated head shots and fresh sharpies. David Byrne emerged, and a man broke into a sprint, holding in his Read More
