The Ouroboros of Franco
Hey ladies. You know, on this very special Valentine’s Day, you’re not looking for a dozen roses or a bear holding a box of chocolate. You’re not looking for hearts, or balloons, or even a book of homemade coupons offering “I O U = One (1) Free Massage During a Screening of Crazy, Stupid Love on Our DVD Player (Your Choice, Non-Transferable).”

In 2003, vampire Robert Pattinson allowed himself to be photographed for a Chinese magazine in nothing but his underwear. And some sort of weird tie/ascot combo. And boy-band hair. His face looks younger, but that’s obviously a Dracu-llusion, as we know that Robert Pattinson does not age and is made out of sparkles.

It’s natural that August marks the end of many a summer fling—that, after all, was the premise of that timeless opening sequence in the golden oldie Grease! Of course, if you’re a celebrity living in New York, those (wuh-oh-oh) summer nights without your boo can be brutal, and you can’t always count on the T-Birds to keep you company. Just ask Twilight hunk Robert Pattinson. Or just pick up a tabloid. Making his first public appearance after girlfriend Kristen Stewart was caught cheating on him, the 26-year-old Mr. Pattinson had to scramble up the steps of the MoMA during the New York premiere of David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis on Monday night, lest he be trampled by overzealous vampiric fans.
What is to be done with Robert Pattinson?
Is there anything more beautiful than feeling the cool air of fall start to kick back up? Then again, is there anything more depressing than coming to realize in the very same moment that summer has nearly passed? Sure, we’ve spent these waning days of late July and early August complaining about the heat, but who ever wants to contemplate seasonal change? What did we really do with our summer, after all?
The slate for this year’s Cannes Film Festival has been announced, with a mix of films that will bring in a raft of unexpected American stars (as well as Cannes perennial Brad Pitt). Who knows–one of them might distinguish him- or herself–after all, last year Bring It On star Kirsten Dunst shocked the world with her Melancholia performance and took home the Best Actress prize. Could the same happen for, say, Kristen Stewart?

Airborne stunt enthusiast, long-maned billionaire, intergalactic transportation pioneer, recent New Jersey party host — Sir Richard Branson is all of these things and more.
