SO HOT. But also not?

 

15 Celebs You Can't Explain Your Attraction To. . .


1. Hugh Laurie

He's either murdered someone or manages a pet store that only sells ferrets.
But just because his eyes are crazy, doesn't mean they're not sexy.

2. Martin Freeman

He looks like that super boring neighbor who yells when the christmas lights
stay up too long and goes golfing on Sundays with his fellow dentists. But
then smiles all cheekily and I remember he's still a hobbit.

3. Adrien Brody

Between the douche-y facial hair and his penchant for fedoras, Brody
looks like he's perpetually on his way to his next local DJ gig. BUT HIS
EYES ARE SO DREAMY (and have you seen how graceful and powerful
his arms are in The Pianist).

skin jacket), but MKW is just incredibly charming in velvet bowties.

you glad you never procreated with her.

hint of ginge that makes him so much sexier?

it should be gross but it just makes him ruggedly handsome.

What Women Will Do In 2013

 

10 Grandiose Proclamations About
What Women Will Do In 2013

They'll rule TV, buy a lot of cell phones, and wear blue.


1. Women "will rule cable TV."
10 Grandiose Proclamations About What Women Will Do In 2013

The folks over at Slate wonder: "Could this finally be the year that,
after more than a decade of prestige cable television dedicated to the
anxieties of amoral, middle-aged men, women finally get their shot at star
billing, both in front of the camera and behind it?"

Indeed, cable shows like GirlsHomelandShameless, and even 
The Walking Deadwill mean more excellent leading roles for females in
2013. But... they also did in 2012.

2. And they will "change the face of the GOP."

And they will

U.S. News says that in 2013, women like New Hampshire Senator Kelly
Ayotte and South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley will revolutionize a
Republican party that, throughout 2012, was criticized for being full of white
men. Republicans do need to appeal to women (particularly after the "legitimate
rape" debacle), but with just four Republican female senators, four Republican
female governors, and 19 Republican women in the House, it'll be a fairly
steep uphill battle.

3. They will wear blue.

They will wear blue.

And not just any old blue! It'll have to be Monaco Blue, Pantone's top color
for women's clothing in Spring 2013. You'll need to throw away all powder
blue and royal blue, pronto.

This is NOT to be confused with the Color Of The Year, which for 2013,
is Emerald, and is universal and gender-blind.

4. But when they marry, they will wear red.

But when they marry, they will wear red.

A bunch of celebrities wore non-white wedding dresses last year (Anne
Hathaway, Jessica Biel) and designers like Oscar de la Renta showed
colorful dresses for their 2013 collections. Wedding industry experts say
this means to expect wedding dresses in colors like blue and red.

5. Women will buy a lot of smartphones.

Women will buy a lot of smartphones.

Women with smartphones reportedly text more and use more social media
than their male counterparts, so naturally, women are becoming the key target
for smartphone makers. Oh great, all the new phones will be be pink and
sparkly! Err, let's hope not.

Image by Jason Getz/Atlanta Journal-Constitution/MCT

6. That includes your mother.

That includes your mother.

This female usage of smartphones will particularly rise among the 50 and up
set, says the Apollo Research Institute.

Image by Pichi Chuang / Reuters

7. Women will finally, maybe, get some more
startup funding.

Women will finally, maybe, get some more startup funding.

“In 2013, we expect to see more women receiving funding," says the
well-regardedWebbmedia Group 2013 Tech Trends report. Over the past
few years, women have notably struggled to secure venture capital funding
for tech startups, largely attributed to gender stereotypes that suggest men
are better at coding and running tech companies. A 2012 AdWeek story 
called these men "bro-grammers." Let's also hope we don't hear that
god-awful term in 2013.

Image by dapd / AP

8. They will be really happy, if they're doctors.

They will be really happy, if they're doctors.

Being a "diagnosing medical doctor," i.e. a physician, dentist, or optometrist is the "best job for women in 2013," according to Dr. Laurence Shatkin, an expert in job markets who wrote Best Jobs for the 21st Century. Female doctors apparently hit the happy medium: they have a strong career trajectory, they make good money, and oh... they also like their jobs.

9. We'll stop caring about women's issues.

We'll stop caring about women's issues.

After all the attention given to women in 2012 (see: the debate over Planned
Parenthood's funding during the election, the general "war on women," etc.), 
Policy Mic says the attention paid to women's issues will drop. The argument
is that, since abortion rights, access to contraception, and equal pay won't
win or lose anyone an election in 2013, people will stop caring about those

issues entirely.

15 Fictional Characters Who Define Hollywood

 

Real-life actors and directors get their fair share of press, but what about their fictional counterparts? Here are some of film's most memorable Hollywood movers and shakers.


1. Neely O'Hara ("Valley of the Dolls")
Neely O&#39;Hara ("Valley of the Dolls")

Before Lindsay Lohan, there was Neely O'Hara (Patty Duke). One of Valley of the Dolls's three tragic leading ladies, Neely got hooked on dolls (prescription pills) and booze. Worse, she became a real pain in the ass to work with. Neely was based on Judy Garland, who had a part in the film but was eventually fired.

2. Les Grossman ("Tropic Thunder")

Les Grossman ("Tropic Thunder")

Tom Cruise was nearly unrecognizable in Tropic Thunder, but those in the entertainment industry likely recognized the character. Whether or not Les Grossman has a real-life inspiration, there are plenty of overbearing Hollywood producers who think they're a lot hipper than they really are.

3. Guido Anselmi ("8 1/2")

Guido Anselmi ("8 1/2")

Poor Guido (Marcello Mastroianni) has director's block — hey, it's a thing — and a very complicated love life. (The latter's not always such a bad thing.) Throughout 8 1/2, he gets lost in his memories and fantasies as he struggles to complete his current project, a science fiction film.

4. Sandy Bates ("Stardust Memories")

Sandy Bates ("Stardust Memories")

Clearly an homage to Guido, Woody Allen's director character Sandy Bates has to deal with fans who prefer his "earlier, funnier movies" — kind of like Woody Allen. Stardust Memories was shot in black-and-white as a parody of 8 1/2. Sandy's fans would almost definitely hate it.

5. Elise Elliot ("The First Wives Club")

Elise Elliot ("The First Wives Club")

Elise (Goldie Hawn) isn't shallow: she's just misunderstood. Probably because she's plumped her lips up with so much collagen she can barely speak. Luckily, she's eventually able to mellow out and get sober. She even lands a role in a Broadway play, the perfect comeback for the film star.

6. Norma Desmond ("Sunset Boulevard")

Norma Desmond ("Sunset Boulevard")

While we're on the subject of faded leading ladies, who could forget Sunset Boulevard's Norma Desmond? Modeled after Norma Talmadge and played by Gloria Swanson, Desmond was a fallen screen idol dreaming of her comeback. Spoiler alert: never gonna happen.

7. Cecil B. Demented ("Cecil B. Demented")

Cecil B. Demented ("Cecil B. Demented")

Norma Desmond had her Cecil B. DeMille, but John Waters gave us Cecil B. Demented (Stephen Dorff). A "kamikaze filmmaker," he's willing to kidnap an A-list star for his art. He's also willing to die for it — not to mention get some of his associates killed.

8. Johnny Marco ("Somewhere")

Johnny Marco ("Somewhere")

Stephen Dorff also played Johnny Marco in Somewhere, Sofia Coppola's subtle drama about a famous actor reconnecting with his 11-year-old daughter. With so many troubled actresses on this list, shouldn't there be a struggling, boozy actor represented? Thanks for being such a screw-up, Johnny.

Dana Marschz ("Hamlet 2")

Dana Marschz ("Hamlet 2")

From failed actor to high school drama teacher, Dana Marschz's story is a sad one. Steve Coogan plays human flop Dana in Hamlet 2, a hilarious satire that never really got its due. Neither did Dana, whose biggest credits were an episode of Xena and a herpes commercial.

9. Vicki Lester ("A Star Is Born")

Vicki Lester ("A Star Is Born")

Of course, success isn't always a good thing. Just ask Vicki Lester (Judy Garland). In the first remake of A Star Is Born, Vicki does her best to maintain her career while taking care of her mess of a husband, alcoholic actor Norman Maine. In real life, Garland had plenty substance abuse problems of her own.

Baby Jane ("What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?")

Baby Jane ("What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?")

Being a child star is hard! Bette Davis gives it a particularly demented spin in camp classic What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? With caked-on makeup, Jane goes full-on murderess as a result of her dark past and twisted obsession with fame. She's also not a great sister to Blanche (Joan Crawford).

10. Buddy Ackerman ("Swimming With Sharks")

Buddy Ackerman ("Swimming With Sharks")

As far as terrible bosses go, few are worse than Buddy Ackerman (Kevin Spacey). Buddy is a tyrannical, abusive movie mogul, but that's just because he's trying to teach his naive assistant how to make it in the business. Some say Buddy was inspired by Scott Rudin -- which is, of course, just speculation.

11. Carl Denham ("King Kong")

Carl Denham ("King Kong")

Another not-so-great boss: Carl Denham (Robert Armstrong). Hell, he just wanted to make a great picture, but he put his cast and crew in considerable danger in the process. He's also sort of responsible for the whole King Kong rampage. In Peter Jackson's remake, Jack Black steps into Carl's shoes.

12. Marilyn Hack ("For Your Consideration")

Marilyn Hack ("For Your Consideration")

Poor Marilyn Hack (Catherine O'Hara) finally found her comeback in Home for Purim. There was even talk of an Oscar nomination! But as Christopher Guest's For Your Consideration reminds us, it's all too easy to get caught up in the buzz. Marilyn ends up with horrible plastic surgery and no Oscar nod.

Charlie and Donald Kaufman ("Adaptation")

Charlie and Donald Kaufman ("Adaptation")

Twin-brother screenwriters, both played by Nicolas Cage, Charlie and Donald Kaufman battle for success in Spike Jonze's trippy Adaptation, loosely inspired by the real Charlie Kaufman's attempts to adapt Susan Orlean's book The Orchid Thief. The film takes several dark turns before The Orchid Thief screenplay gets finished.

Sticking To Your Workout Routine

 

10 Scientific Tips For Sticking To Your Workout Routine

From choosing a fitter buddy to bringing your dog to work, here's what recent research has to say about actually getting yourself to exercise.

1. Work out with someone fitter than you.
Work out with someone fitter than you.

In a 2012 study, stationary bikers were told they were "competing" against another biker who had previously biked for longer than they had, and whom they could see via video chat. Actually, the "chat" was just video footage on a loop, but the bikers who were told they were competing still biked for 90% longer than they had when no competition was involved. Takeaway: working out with someone more athletic, even via Skype, might make you push yourself more.

2. Try exercising outside.

Try exercising outside.

One study found that people who exercised outside were more likely to say they planned to do the same activity again than those who worked out indoors. The study didn't follow up to see if people actually followed through on their intentions, but exercising outside outside has other benefits too — it boosts energy and relieves depression better than working out in the gym.

3. Use exercise video games as a gateway drug.

Use exercise video games as a gateway drug.

review of the literature on "exergames" like Dance Dance Revolution and Wii Fit found that they weren't as good as real-life exercise. But the author of the review said the games could help sedentary people get moving: "For those not engaging in real-life exercise, this may be a good step toward this."

4. Thirty minutes might be just as good as an hour.

Thirty minutes might be just as good as an hour.

A group of moderately overweight Danish men who exercised for 30 minutes a day for three months in a recent study actually lost more weight than a group who worked out for 60 minutes. Of course, not everyone exercises for weight loss, but it's worth noting that just a half hour can have an effect on your body. And the study authors speculate that one reason the 30-minute timeframe was effective was that it motivated the men to move around more throughout the day.

5. Need motivation? Think how much smarter exercise will make you.

Need motivation? Think how much smarter exercise will make you.

Studies have shown that exercise helps people do better on cognitive tests, can improve memory, and protects the brain from age-related decline. So if you go for a run, you might do better at your job and Words With Friends, too.

Source: funny-games.biz

6. Or look forward to better times in the bedroom.

 

Other research shows that exercise can improve "E" function. And some women actually have the big "O" from exercise.

7. Take your dog to work.

Take your dog to work.

study on employees who took their dogs to work found that one of the many benefits was that employees got exercise on their breaks by taking the dogs for walks. The dogs also significantly reduced employees' stress, and study authors "observed unique dog-related communication in the workplace that may contribute to employee performance and satisfaction."

8. You don't have to lift huge weights.

You don&#39;t have to lift huge weights.

Last year, a group of researchers concluded that lifting lighter weights with many repetitions could be just as effective at building muscle as lifting heavy weights with fewer reps. So don't worry if you can't bench press a million pounds — just do a few more lifts.

9. Keep your hands cold.

Keep your hands cold.

This is a weird one, but a device that kept the palms of the hands cold helped a group of women in one study feel more comfortable exercising and thus stick with an exercise program longer. The study authors say keeping a cold water bottle in your hand could have the same effect, helping you feel less hot, sweaty, and tired.

10. Drink red wine!

Drink red wine!

Researchers found that resveratrol, found in fruit, nuts, and red wine, improved exercisers' strength and performance. Some caveats: the exercisers were rats, and the doses of resveratrol they got were probably higher than you'd get just from drinking. But if you need an excuse to enjoy a glass of wine as part of your workout program, here it is.
