In 100 years, when they start including messy social media fights in history books, our children’s children will learn about one of the greatest social media battles of our time: The Khloe Kardashian vs. Amber Rose Twitter Whore War of 2015. Amber threw a judgemental side-eye at Tyga for dating then-underage Kylie Jenner, which Khloe responded to by calling Amber a stripper, to which Amber fired back with a crack about Kim Kardashian’s sex tape. The Twitter Whore War was the catalyst for Kanye West’s historical 30 Showers Address, which lead to the Booty Ass Bitch Blitz of 2016.
Eventually General Rose and Kommander Kim called a truce on social media. But it looks like four months is about as long as she could hold out before once again bringing up that fight with Khloe and Kim’s sex tape.
Will Arnett Brought So Many Young Women To Set, Megan Fox Joked Craft Services Should Start Supplying Lunchables
If I’ve learned anything from Megan Fox’s promo tour for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, it’s that her thoughts are powered by a stoned hamster casually strolling on a wheel made of dried sage stems and crystals. She’s talked about string theory and the pyramids and how the baby currently living inside her is a telepathic real estate genius. On Conan last night, it looks like she finally gave the hamster a night off, because she stopped giving us more crystal shop knowledge. Instead she channeled her inner Jeff Ross and put on an impromptu roast of her TMNT co-star Will Arnett and his skirt-chasing ways.
Will is a horny single 46-year-old Hollywood actor, which means the recommended age for his dating pool is women who were conceived during the final season of The Commish. So of course Will had a rotating lineup of young ladies joining him on set every day during filming. And when I say “young“, I mean young enough that it made Megan wonder if she should bring in some of her kids’ Lunchables from home to give his girlfriends something to snack on as they waited for him.
“They were progressively getting younger and younger as the weeks went on, and it got to the point where I was like, ‘Buddy, I’m worried. Should I talk to craft service and make sure they have Lunchables for your girlfriend?’ There’s no food here with cartoon characters on it.”
How young were these girls that Will was bringing to set? Should Chris Hansen be concerned? I think the biggest clue would be how excited they were to be on set. See, anyone under the age of 18 would be bored to death watching a bunch of grown men wearing CGI suits covered in motion-capture ping pong balls. An of-age starfucker, on the other hand, would be like a kid in a candy store. “Ooooh, do you play Matthewangelo or Donatello Versace? Are you getting paid a lot of money for this? Listen, here’s my number. Knowing Will Arnett, I probably won’t be back tomorrow, so give me a call?”
Last night was the Los Angeles premiere of Alice Through the Looking Glass. One person who didn’t stroll up the red carpet was Helena Bonham Carter. I don’t know why she wasn’t there; maybe she couldn’t find an antique sewing machine for the undead ghost of an 1800s seamstress to make her an ensemble in time and decided that if she had to wear something off the rack and from this century, she wasn’t going to go. Regardless, I guess Anne Hathaway was missing her, because she decided to pay tribute to HBC with a meme yesterday.
Anne posted a picture of HBC in her rag bag best with the caption: “In a world of Kardashians…be a Helena Bonham Carter“, followed by a bunch of hearts and the word “(Red) Queen.” But if you want to see it, you’re going to have to swing by The Daily Mail. Why? Because shortly after she posted it, Anne yanked it down and replaced it with this:
Looks like we can add “shade” to the list that includes “photobomb” of words Anne Hathaway doesn’t really understand the meaning of. Correct me if I’m wrong, but Anne’s “In a world of Kardashians” felt like a straight-up read. Whatever it was, it was “unintended.” So Khloe, you can kalm down now; it looks like your services as the Kardashian family’s social media goon are not needed right now.
I don’t know if Anne necessarily had to clarify what she meant. After all, if Anne was going to come for someone, I’m pretty sure she’d do it by dressing up as a train and busting out a bitchy rendition of “Laughing Stock” from Starlight Express.
Here’s more of Ann-with-an-E at the premiere for ATTLG last night. Again, Anne really didn’t need to throw up that meme; she paid all the tribute to HBC needed by showing up looking like the Corpse Bride at her bachelorette party.
It’s no secret that Leonardo DiCaprio worked harder for his Oscar nomination this year than….I’m not sure what, actually. Nothing works harder than Leonardo DiCaprio trying to get an Oscar. Leo worked his yacht-lounging ass off during the making of The Revenant. Leo damn near froze to death. Leo ate raw bison livers. Leo had to rassle a bear. I haven’t seen The Revenant, but I’m sure Leo busts out some ugly cry face too. Leo was probably feeling pretty good about all the acting overtime he put in too. That is until Matt Damon swooped in and, like my over-it friend when I tried to milk a twisted ankle for three weeks, reminded him he needs to stop being so fucking dramatic.
Vanity Fair says that Matt Damon joked about Leo’s “OMG I worked so haaard” award season hustle during his introduction of The Martian director Ridley Scott at the Director’s Guild Awards on Saturday night. Both Matt Damon and Leo DiCaprio have both been nominated for all the same Best Actor awards this year, but according to Matt, he didn’t have to suck back bison organs to get his.
“Every night at 6 o’clock, the horn blew and Ridley and I went to dinner. And that’s how you make a movie, and we finished the film really early and we saved 2 million bucks. And Leo – we weren’t cold at all. I’m just sayin’. There’s another way to do it.”
Well that’s easy for Matt to say – he already has an Oscar! He doesn’t know what it’s like to lay awake at night, tossing and turning on top of a pile of naked models, wonder what he’s got to do to win one. “Do I have to beat off a goddamn CGI bear while looking like something that was pulled out of a bus station toilet??? Cause I’ll do it!”
Here’s Leo DiCaprio, who probably got a major boner from the sight of all those Oscar silhouettes, and Matt Damon, who looks like a dude who wants to sell you a 36-month lease on a Kia Sedona, at the Oscars nominee luncheon yesterday.
Sorry, I should have been more clear; he came for the Disney corporation, not Walt Disney himself. Although the mental image of George Lucas cussing out the ghost of Walt Disney in a parking lot while Mickey Mouse shouts “Get him, Walt! Whoop his ass!” from the hood of a car isn’t the worst thing my brain has thought up today.
George Lucas’ interview with Charlie Rose happened on the 25th, but since we all spent Christmas day in a turkey coma (we = me, and anyone else who mainlines gravy), we’re not getting to it until today. However, I think you’ll consider it was worth the wait in the event you really wanted to kiss goodbye to 2015 with a story about a jowly old billionaire reading Disney to filth.
Since I’m pretty sure there’s a journalism law that says you can’t interview The Father of Star Wars without asking him about the newest Star Wars movie, Charlie Rose brought up Star Wars: The Force Awakens. And guess what? George didn’t like it. According to George, Star Wars: The Force Awakens was a “retro movie” and a cash-grab that pandered to the fans. George says that if George was still in charge, his idea for Star Wars: The Force Awakens would have been to make it “completely different, with different planets, with different spaceships, make it new.” But George couldn’t do that because George sold the Star Wars franchise to the house of mouse back in 2012 for $4 billion. Although as you’ll hear around the 2:00 mark, he uses a completely different nickname for them.
“The white slavers“? Oh boy. Somewhere on Naboo, George’s best pal Jar Jar Binks is like “Err…meesa don’t know him.”
You can watch all 55 minutes of Salty George’s interview here. Or if you’d rather be the one saying “This is such a crappy cash-grab” for 55 minutes, skip George’s interview and watch the first 55 minutes of the Star Wars holiday special instead.
Usually when I think of the word ugly, my brain immediately pulls out the old Pictonary pad and starts sketching the look of disgust I get from my server at Cracker Barrel every time I ask if the kitchen can mix some sawmill gravy into the scrambled eggs in my Sunrise Sampler. But apparently there is one person who looks at Amy Schumer’s Made by Xavier Roberts face and get the dry heaves.
