To honor the 20th anniversary of the text message, Moleskine has released a limited-edition notebook that comes with a slingshot attachment and tiny notes that read I LOVE YOU and CALL ME. It's the perfect way to annoy your co-workers--or force your kids to cut down on their texting bills.
Snapping at the Stars
Marlon Brando broke his jaw. Sean Penn punched his nephew. Such was the career arc of Ron Galella, the godfather of modern paparazzi. Though he cut his teeth as a photographer during the Korean War, Galella, now 81, soon moved back to the U.S. to pursue the likes of Brigitte Bardot, Mick Jagger and Andy Warhol, whose images are featured in the new book Paparazzo Extraordinaire. Of course, Galella's vintage stalker shots seem like high art in the age of TMZ.
Galella's obsession was Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, who obtained a restraining order
"We're, like, the least masculine writers in Hollywood," jokes Jason Segel, star of The Five-Year Engagement (out now), which he penned with buddy Nicholas Stoller. His latest flick tackles the ups and downs of a serious, committed relationship--with a few dude-humor jokes along the way.
Overall, Five-Year is hilarious. But some of your fights [with your onscreen fiance, played by Emily Blunt] are surprisingly intense. I don't think a romantic comedy has to appeal to the lowest common denominator. What I love about Broadcast News is how complicated it is. There is no villain. You don't know who you want [the lead] to end up with. That's our model. Your character grows some awful facial hair during a rough patch. Was it real? [Laughs.] It was not real. But it is inspired by my real life. Oh, yeah? I've been known to grow passive-aggressive facial hair. Please elaborate. In relationships and when I was younger and not getting cast, I'd do it under the guise of "Oh, you think I care. Well, I'm not even gonna try anymore." It really is an expression of, like, "F--- this." Ha. I'll do that next time one of my stories gets cut. Yeah, go for it.
IQ of 4-year-old Heidi Hankins, who was admitted to the bergenius Mensa society--almost as impressive as the 160 IQ of Oscar Wrigley, who made the grade at age 2 in 2009
In a bonus clip from her sister's reality show Khloe & Lamar, Kim Kardashian says she has decided to run for mayor of Glendale, Calif. The only problem: Glendale doesn't have a mayor. The Los Angeles suburb elects a five-member council instead. Good thing Kardashian says she'll wait five years before campaigning. That should be just enough time to learn something (read: anything) about how government works.
