Age Ain’t Nothin’ But A Number In Hollywood: Older Actors Who’ve Portrayed Significantly Younger Characters

Young characters older actors

Directors have cast actors and actresses into roles based significantly on talent, often letting factors like age fall by the wayside.

‘Top Gun’ Director Tony Scott Commits Suicide

Tony Scott, a well respected director in Hollywood committed suicide yesterday by jumping off an L.A. bridge. The L.A. County Coroner says that Scott jumped from the Vincent Thomas Bridge around 12:30pm. A suicide note was found in Scott’s Toyota Prius, which was parked on one of the eastbound lanes of the bridge.

Authorities used sonar equipment to search for Scott’s body in the water.  They ended up retrieving his body at around 4:30pm. A witness actually saw the 68-year-old director jump off the bridge, the witness quickly called 911 to report the incident.

Tony has directed a number of major films. Top Gun, Beverly Hills Cop ll, Enemy of the State and most recently Unstoppable with Denzel Washington. Scott was the kind of director who just knew what the audience wanted to see. He was never a big award winner, but his movies were always a big hit in theaters. Scott really loved to put out films that were filled with action, entertaining the audience was his passion.

A publicist for the family confirmed the death and said, “The family asks for privacy at this time.” Tony Scott Tony Scott1

 

Mayim Bialik Severely Injured in Car Accident

The ‘Big Bang Theory’ star suffered her own little “big bang” yesterday afternoon in Los Angeles. The 36-year-old actress suffered a severe injury that almost cost her a finger! The accident happened around noon at the corner of Hollywood Blvd. and La Brea. Mayim was driving by herself in a White Volvo and was hit by another vehicle, which just happened to be carrying tourists from Chile.

An ambulance rushed to the scene and witnesses claim there was blood everywhere. They also claimed that Mayim’s finger was almost completely severed, “it was just hanging there” they said. There were even reports that she had lost the finger, but luckily doctors were able to save it. She even managed to post a tweet just hours after the accident (with the help of her husband),

 

(husband typing) In pain but will keep all my fingers. If u wanna See pre accident me watch The Soup tonight lol #joelmchale @thesoup

You can tell she is an entertaining, huh? Still finding the time to promote herself; don’t you just love Hollywood? Mayim Bialik Mayim Bialik1

 

Amanda Bynes Needs Help! FAST!

Have we found the new Lindsay Lohan? I think so, only this one might be worse. Amanda Bynes obviously has a drinking/partying problem and someone needs to come in and save this girl. We would be making fun of her right now. Her horrible slutty outfits, her horrible driving and weird looking hair. But sometimes it just gets sad, and this is one of those times.

Amanda was out clubbing again last night in Hollywood for the 2nd time since she was arrested for DUI. Cameras caught her texting behind the wheel and at one point she backed over a curb in a red zone. She managed to finally park the car “safely” after several failed attempts. She was seen going in Greystone, which is the same place TMZ caught her getting behind the wheel while intoxicated back in March.

Let’s just hope she realizes she needs help. It just goes to show you that people in Hollywood do not have that many “true” friends. True friends would have stepped in weeks ago and made her get help. Amanda Bynes Needs Help! FAST! Amanda Bynes Needs Help! FAST! Amanda Bynes Needs Help! FAST! Amanda Bynes Needs Help! FAST!

 

Amanda Bynes Arrested for DUI!

This is a shock to no one. Amanda Bynes was arrested for DUI this morning, first reported by TMZ. She was arrested at around 3 a.m. in West Hollywood after she tried to pass a police car in her BMW and ended up side-swiping the cop car.

The cop pulled her over (shocker) and determined she was not fit to be driving and took her drunk ass to jail. Bail was set at $5,000 and she was released at around 1:30pm eastern time. Cameras were there to greet her, and even asked her, “if she learned her lesson” but she walked right by them without saying a word.

The 26-year-old actress was caught last month getting into her car while intoxicated. A TMZ cameraman even warned the valet not to let Amanda drive, but she took off anyways.

What happened to the sweet little girl from, ‘The Amanda Show’? Word of advice; don’t let your babies grow up to be child stars. Amanda Bynes Arrested for DUI! Amanda Bynes Arrested for DUI! Amanda Bynes Arrested for DUI!

Kendra Wilkinson Admits To Having No Talent!

You may know Kendra Wilkinson from the E! reality television series The Girls Next Door, or from her own reality show, ‘Kendra.’ Basically, she is a reality star who is famous for her looks and her naked pictures. Who isn’t these days? What makes Kendra so different? Well, the fact the she admits to having no talent! She told People on Friday the following,

“I never ever see myself as a celebrity or famous so I poke fun at that. I just say what I do. I have no talent. I have nothing to offer. I’m very aware of what I do and I’m very aware of how quickly my career could end. Every season I cross my fingers and hope the show gets picked up but it’s out of my hands and in my fans’ hands.”

She just might be my new favorite person! She gets it, she knows she would be in deep sh*t if people ever stopped liking crappy reality shows, which will eventually happen one day. But, I think Kendra will be alright. She sounds pretty smart, so I am sure she is saving up all the cash she is getting now. Plus, she can always work the streets once her career ends, her breasts will take care of her for a long time. Kendra Wilkinson Admits To Having No Talent!

Hollywood, Then and Now

I can’t believe it’s been almost 20 years since my senior year in High School.  I knew back then that when we gathered for the reunion,  we would probably need a few name tags to identify one another.  Generally we’ve all changed to a certain degree,  but at the 20 year mark,  we’ve all changed to the point where it would deem necessary the use of name tags.  I walked into a grocery store the other day and saw a Facebook friend of mine that I had not seen since high school and didn’t recognize him.  I wonder how many other people I’ve seen out and about and didn’t make the connection.  I know some of us have lost our hair, gained some weight, grew some facial hair (and that’s just the women) even came across a few, “HOLY Sh*t!  WTF happened to you?”  moments.  All in all in the end,  it’s always good to see an old friend. 

Even though we didn’t have any celebrities from our class,  I wonder even if we did, would I even recognize them?  I’m glad that I treated people kindly, the same way that I do now, cause you never know when you will run into a ‘blast from the past’.  Imagine if you were the guy in H.S that dated Octo-mom with thoughts of one day raising a family.  Imagine if you were someone that laughed at Bill Gates for being a nerd way back when.  Imagine if you made fun of Angelina Jolie for having big lips.  I find joy in knowing that a few of the ‘unpopular’ kids are now so rich they could buy the venue our reunion will be held in.  I smile from ear to ear when I hear stories of ‘fat’ girls becoming ‘sexy’ movie actresses,  hanging on a poster in your sons bedroom as he tells you to ‘knock’ before you come in.  Gotta love karma.

George Lucas Why Do You Hurt Me?

Dear George,

Can I call you George? Probably not, but who cares. It’s not like you will ever read this, or better yet, even respond to it.  I remember going to the movies with my dad back in 1977…we drove in his yellow Toyota pick up truck…you know…like the one from Toy Story?…even down to the “YO”… to Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, Ca.  I remember standing in the longest line I have ever seen.

 

There was an excitement in the air and nothing past or present can compare to it.  When we finally got to the front of the line momentum continued to build as I came across the largest Star Wars posters my little eyes had ever seen.  My Dad told me that I was about to watch one of the most amazing movies of my life.

 

 

Ok, so back to 1977.  He bought me popcorn and a small coke as we settled into our seats.  Finally, the lights dimmed as a hush traveled through the packed theatre.  I don’t remember the previews, but I do remember the roar of cheers as the fanfare from 20th Century Fox came up on the screen. It was followed by a cheesy, early version of your Lucafilm Limited logo and then the most amazing movie score ever.  It only got better from there…suddenly there were these words flying up the screen that I couldn’t read at the time because I was only 3 years old.  Then suddenly appeared the most gigantic spaceship ever, followed by yet again, another most gigantic spaceship ever!  Fast forward two hours later as the end credits began to roll, I knew I had seen something amazing and memorable.

 

 

Years later you came out with the prequels and my eldest son was able to experience Star Wars at the movies with his Dad, me.  It was again, truely amazing and memorable to share in a galaxy, far, far away for the second time in my life. We are a family of Star Wars fanatics because of it.

 

 

Even my wife is a fan, I have a picture somewhere of her 9 months pregnant wearing my Stormtrooper helmet in the kitchen.  She’s actually more like Darth Vader, but let’s just leave it at that.

 

 

I’m sure if you haven’t already, by now you must be asking, “What is your f*ckin point?!” I can hear those exact words,  in your voice echo,  in my head because I actually have a friend who personally knows you,  and she says you’re kind of a d**k.  So anyways, the point to all this Zuckus, (see what I did there?  I was going to put ‘ruckus’, but thought the name of one of the Bounty Hunters from Episode V was more fitting to keep with the whole Star Wars theme.  Effing hilarious.)

 

 

Ok,  George,  the point is…Why do you want to hurt me?  It started with all the remakes,  Special Edition this,  Special Edition that.  Then you hired all these crappy actors to portray these iconic characters.  Let’s face it,  your CG characters have better acting chops.  Hold on before you start to argue,  I’m not finished.  I let all that crap go…I even bit my tongue as you messed with the Original Trilogy.  Really?  Did Luke really need to scream like a bitch while falling,  after getting his hand cut off by Vader?  That was some Taun-Taun sh*t.

Then a couple weeks back as I’m watching the Superbowl,  I see Darth Vader pitching for Volkswagon???? (Though I have to admit, last years commercial was great! Kudos.) Now you’re re-releasing the movies all over again in 3D?????  Which will undoubtebly be followed by box sets, and more Special Editions, etc, etc.  When will you just stop George?  You’re ruining my childhood and some special memories that go along with it.

 

 

You know how certain events happen and they carry such an impact you know exactly where you were when it happened?  And who you were with?  Like when Bin Laden was shot and later turned into fish chum?  Everyone remembers where they were.  I know exactly where I was and who I was with when I first saw Star Wars…The first time Darth Vader revealed to Luke, “No, I am your father…”,  the first time I saw AT-AT’s walking on Hoth,  the first time I saw Yoda whip out a lightsaber,  or Darth Maul pull one out that had two blades…I’ll stop here so I don’t lose my female fan base,  but you get my drift right George?  You understand what I’m getting at right George?  Do you really want to hurt me?  Do you really want to make me cry?  Huh?  Well do ya George?

Dear Shae, How Can I Get My Mom To Treat Me Like An Adult?

Dear Shae, How can I get my mom to treat me like an adult?

I’m 43 years old and she still trips on me when I come home past midnight. I shouldn’t have a curfew at this age homie. She is also constantly nagging at me to find a “real” job. I have a real job, I work for Subway as a sign twirler on Saturdays and every other Sunday. I twirl in Hollywood so I’m on the street where I get seen by hundreds of people everyday. Maybe one day some big fish will see me and cast me, know what I’m sayin?  During the week I go to auditions because that is my dream to become an actor and have my own show one day.  Sign twirlin in Hollywood, auditions, and clubbing are all stepping stones to my dream. Everytime I get a gig as an extra, I am that much closer to superstardom. Please help me tell my mom that she should lay off me a bit. I need the money I make so I can get to my auditions and use the little extra for when I go out to the clubs. You know what I’m sayin? Our house is paid for, so I don’t think it’s fair of her to demand rent when she knows I need every penny I earn. She also says I should chip in for the groceries since she’s buying and cooking the food that I like. I’m not a picky eater and I will eat whatevers so, anyways, she can just buy what she normally does because I eat the same food too.  Please give me a way to ask her to back off and let me concentrate on finding my star! Thanks in advance
 - Christopher H.

 

Dear Christopher H,
Does the H stand for ‘Homie’? Seriously? So let me get this straight, you’re 43, living at home, mom still making you meals, cleaning up after you, shopping for you, etc…I’m assuming rent free because you need your $480/mo (based on $10/hr x 4 (8hr Saturdays) + 2 (8hr Sundays) = Swagger for the clubs and bus pass) Am I right so far? I’m assuming $10 bucks an hours because that’s what the sign ninja by my house makes twirling for El Pollo Loco. Anyways, I’m calculating the maximum cash money amount, according to the data you’ve given.
Ok winner, so based on everything above,  let’s clarify the issues. Your mom has given you a 12 o’clock curfew, nags at you to get a real job so that you can contribute and help her out a little financially. Is she asking for your entire paycheck? Or just a little here and there to replace the toilet paper surplus she used up to wipe your ass? Look, I’m all for following your dreams but it sounds like you need a little less dreaming and a lot more reality in your life. Be thankful she is allowing you to live rent free in her home, making your meals, washing your Subway uniform and everything inbetween. What does your wife/girlfriend have to say about all this? I’m sure you’re not single with all that swagger you bring to the table.
Maybe you should work Monday through Friday and do the acting thing on the weekend.  If an audition should fall on a weekday, ask for that day off. Seriously, pay attention to this last bit of advice. If you want your mom to treat you like an adult, act like one.

Andy Dick is in some Trouble! WARNING: Lots of Andy Dickness Inside!

YES! I finally get to write about Andy Dick, this is a big moment for me. If you have closely followed my writing on this site (which I am sure you have…) Anyway, if you have followed my writing you would have noticed a few little jokes towards Andy Dick. I am very fascinated by him; I think he might be the most sad/hilarious person on this planet. So, the fact that I finally get to write a story about him makes my day. Now, let’s get to the story… Supposedly the LAPD is looking for Mr. Dick after he was accused of roughing up a tourist in Hollywood. You know, my late great-grandfather always told me that if I went to Hollywood, I’d get roughed up by some dicks. I think he was talking about something entirely different, though. The tourist who filed the report claims that Andy grabbed him by his collar and tried to wrestle a camera from his possession. The tourist claims he managed to fight Andy off, and Andy quickly fled the scene. Also, the police believe that this whole thing was caught on tape! Oh, how I hope it was. I love how the tourist says he “managed” to fight Andy off. I mean, how hard could it be to fight off Andy Dick? It’s Andy Fucking Dick! If you just shake his hand he will get a bruise! And, how dare this guy get mad at Andy for attacking him. Do you know how many people would love to get attacked by Andy Dick? You would have a story to tell for the rest of your life.You might also have aids, but whatever…
 

Tara Reid Looks Hot and Overdressed!

“Tara Reid looks hot” I don’t usually ever write those words because Tara is really strange to me. Sometimes she can look decent, but other times she looks like she is a 70 year old chain smoking granny. She confuses my hot radar more than anybody else, except Betty White. Yeah, Betty White. If you were 70 you would be all over that shit, don’t lie. I am not sure why Tara is so dressed up in these pictures. It just looks like she is just going shopping or something; I am not sure why she felt the need to make everyone else feel inferior. Maybe she wanted to finally have pictures out in the media of her looking hot. Look at her just smiling at the camera; she knows exactly what she is doing. By the way, what is she doing these days? I haven’t seen her in any movies recently. I am sure she is going to be in the new American Pie movie, though. I hope she didn’t blow all the money she got from it on that dress she is wearing. She better be saving up! Look at the pictures below and tell me what you think, is she hot? I’ve included hot shots and bad shots, which is the real her? I am still saying she isn’t that hot.
 

Lindsay Lohan’s Ankle Monitor Went Off

The monitoring anklet that Lindsay Lohan, Hollywood’s most larcenous starlet, has been forced to wear while under house arrest went off earlier this week. That would normally indicate that Lindsay’s left the building. But when police went to her Venice Beach house, they found LiLo lounging in the sun on her roof deck, reading scripts. Authorities surmised the bracelet must have malfunctioned.

According to The LA Times:

Lindsay Lohan’s house-arrest electronic monitoring system may have gone on the blink this week, leading probation officials to visit the actress’ Venice townhouse, where she was watching her 3-D TV, reading scripts and posing for tabloid photographs on her rooftop patio.

The “Mean Girls” actress is required to wear an ankle monitoring device that randomly checks via a base unit that she is within the premises of her home. Law enforcement sources told The Times that her monitoring unit went off Tuesday, though it’s unclear why.
Steve Honig, a spokesman for the actress, said in a statement to the Times, “They came as part of standard procedure to make sure the monitoring equipment was working properly.”

Are they sure they located the right Lindsay? The one we know wouldn’t be caught dead actually doing work.

Lindsay’s agent must have splashed something on it to intentionally set it off, so word could get out that people still send Lindsay scripts. Becuase sure, Lindsay. You’re getting tons of scripts right now. We believe you.

It’s either that or the police don’t give a damn, and actually taped a garage-door opener to her leg. When they say it ‘goes off’ they really mean is that it opens Nicholas Cage’s garage and he runs outside to check which one of his cars is being repossessed.

Hollywood’s hottest celebrity moms

Pacificwaters:

Continuing to look as sexy as before, especially after child birth, is usually a big task for any lady. But the current lot of Hollywood actresses has literally taken the bull by the horns, and in most of the cases are looking more hot and sexy than they did before giving birth to their children. A recent poll listed the following celebrity moms of Hollywood as the hottest.

Halle Berry

halle berry voted hottest mom ever

Halle Berry, 44 the Academy Award winning actress who has a 2 year old daughter Nahla Ariel from her model and ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry is on the top of the list of yummiest Hollywood moms. That she is over 40 and still desirable, is in itself worth noting.

Jennifer Hudson

60690629

The 30 year old American actress and singer, Jennifer Kate Hudson is the celebrity mom who was ranked second in this poll. Jennifer who was at one time a finalist on the third season of the television series American Idol is one of those few people who have an Oscar as well as a Grammy Award to their name. Being a mom as well as so successful in her career no doubt makes her a role model to look forward to.

Jada Pinkett Smith

54513289

The 40 year old Jada Koren Pinkett-Smith who is a popular director, producer, model, singer-songwriter, a film and television actress in addition to being Hollywood’s lead actor Will Smith’s wife is also a mom to his child. Dabbling in such varied affairs as well as managing her own band – Wicked Wisdom and, raising her son are no mean task. And add to this the special effort of still looking desirable! She definitely deserves to be on this list.

Angelina Jolie

84353

A mom to six children and still wanting to add more to her brood, Angelina Jolie is no doubt one of the sexiest Hollywood moms today. Her style and sizzling roles are proof enough of her acting prowess as well. But then having so many children and looking desirable is no simple thing either!

Jennifer Garner

jennifer_garner_daughter

On cover of this month’s InStyle and still looking radiant as ever, Jennifer Garner a new mom hasn’t lost her old grace. Married to one of the hottest Hollywood actors, Ben Affleck and at the same time dealing with tabloids as well as her movie career is a tough task. So no doubt Garner should be applauded for her effort as well as the grace she still exudes, post her pregnancy.

Alessandra Ambrosio

alessandra ambrosio hot mom 5ss

A natural celebrity who is more often known for abhorring make-up as much as possible, Ambrosio is one of those few stars who are born with a good body. But then this doesn’t take away from her the fact that she has worked on her body to maintain it post pregnancy. Without doubt, she had to be on this yummy Hollywood mummies list.

Nicole Richie

43qi5oy

Nicole, 27 and married to Joel Madden recently became parents of a daughter, Harlow who is just 9 months old today. But then this hasn’t stopped them from thinking of adding one more child to their brood. Actively considering of adopting an orphan as a sibling for Harlow, Nicole, ever since tirelessly working with underprivileged and homeless children through her Richie Madden Foundation, needs to be specially mentioned not just for her active social work, but for also still looking desirable.

Isla Fisher

000d6065c51b0af0d3a155

Isla Fisher is currently a mom to 15 year old Olive whom she conceived with her fiancé Sacha Baron Cohen. While she does agree that things have changed especially from the career perspective, Isla is happy that she now feels more radiant than ever before. Admitting to finally feeling like a woman, Isla managed to shed her extra pounds put on during pregnancy by working out. No doubt she had good genes to help her too, but then that doesn’t take away the compliments from the Confessions of a Shopaholic star.

Heidi Klum

heidi is pregnant

The hottest celebrity moms list would definitely be incomplete if Seal’s wife and mother to his four children, Heidi Klum was not on it. The supermodel who has also just launched a clothing collection is known for her stunning looks despite mothering Leni, 6, henry, 5, Johan, 4 and Lou 11 months. No doubt, Klum with her svelte figure is and will keep on making it to the yummy mummy polls over a long period of time.

Jaime Pressly

jamie pressly 145 03

And also making it to the top 10 Hollywood celebrity moms is the new mother Jaime Pressly. The My Name is Earl star tried all possible methods, including having cabbage soup, a strict 1200-calorie-a-day diet, detox as well as gymming to look her sexy self again And no doubt, Dezi’s mom Jamie did succeed within six weeks of his birth.

Top 10 Superhero Movies of Hollywood

Pacificwaters:

Hollywood is known for delivering box office hits when their movies are centered around a superhero. Not that, movies with plots other than those based around superheroes don’t deliver, but then the chances of scoring a hit always increase when the plot is based around a super-hero. It also increases the chances of people demanding a sequel and the producer consequently raking in more moolah. Following is a list of the top 10 Hollywood superhero movies

Spiderman

Based on the comic book series Spiderman created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, this super box office hit which has spawned sequels as well, was directed by Sam Raimi and written by David Koepp. Initially released in the summer of 2002 as a potential blockbuster for the kids, this movie not just enthralled the kids but adults as well. The adults became equal fans of Spiderman’s swinging and biting like a spider prowess as it transported them back to their childhood. That the sequels did huge business with absolutely no competition to it on the opening weekends ensured that Spiderman lived up to the hype and expectations the first movie had generated

Iron man

Based on a character created by Stan Lee and his team members, the Ironman movie directed by Jon Favreau and produced by Avi Arad and Kevin Feige is another cult superhero movie. Though rated PG-13 due to some of its sex scenes and excessive violence portrayal, this movie managed to garner a huge fan following especially with its mind blowing visual effects.

Hancock

Though not exactly in the league of superhero movies such as Iron Man, The Dark Knight or Incredible Hulk, Hancock directed by Peter Berg and written by Vincent Ngo and Vince Gilligan is an action movie with a straying plot line. With a star cast that boasts of actors such as Will Smith playing an unlovable superhero, in addition to Oscar winning actress Charlize Theron and Jason Bateman; this movie has utterly boring and bizarre twists and almost looses the plot halfway. But then it is a movie which any action fan wouldn’t mind watching twice, the plot be damned!

Hulk

Another movie of a comics superhero having its own franchise is the super-hit movie Hulk. Created by Jack Kirby as a comic super-hero, this movie by Lee while maintaining the superhero image of Hulk have done away with quite some other Hulk facts. Yet the result is an intense and block buster movie involving a chase and battle sequence between the U.S. military and Hulk. Loaded with action scenes that are bound to set the adrenaline and testosterone levels surging, this movie has but an ending which though easy to figure out, leaves the audience with quite some whys and hows.

X2

x2 2003

A movie that’s way better than X-Men, X2 has only Alan Cumming, the blue-skinned teleporter Nightcrawler, as a new addition to its storyline. The visual effects of this blockbuster are however worth every dime you spend to watch the movie – especially the scenes that involve Nightcrawler teleporting and fighting the Secret Service agents, Wolverine squaring against Deathstrike in the clawfight or for that matter even Pyro holding off the cops with his fire fighting abilities. No doubt the movie is well made though the talent of the cast does seem under-utilized. However as mentioned it is the visual effects that are worth a dekko!

Superman

Jessica Simpson is a Big Fat Drunken Mess

Here is Jessica Simpson leaving the Katsuya sushi restaurant in Hollywood with her fiance, Eric Johnson, the other night. Looking like she is at that magical drunken point in the evening when she realizes she needs to eat some cheese fries, STAT! I’m just thankful that these pictures don’t include her recycling her sushi later on. Because it’s pretty much a guarantee to happen at that level of intoxication. Kudos to the Simpson handler for dodging that bullet for us.

I miss those days when Jess was the hottest chick on Earth during her “These Boots Are Made For Walkin’ ” era… Now she’s in more of a “This Booty Is Made For Storing Lard” era.

Forbes’ List of Top-Earning Hollywood Celebrities of 2010

On the East Coast, revenue streams are slowly rising as banks are still cratering and trying to recover from the recession. But out West, money ain’t a thing, as Jermaine Dupri and Jay-Z once rapped.

Everyone has their opinion on who the best were in 2010, but Forbes removed those pesky opinions when compiling their list for Hollywood’s Highest Earners for 2010 by boiling things down to simple dollars and cents.

While a number of these names should come as no surprise, there are a few names towards the bottom of the list that prove that Hollywood is in fact getting younger (and less talented):

1. Oprah Winfrey, $315 million
2. James Cameron, $210 million
3. Tyler Perry, $125 million
4. Michael Bay, $120 million
5. Tiger Woods, $105 million
6. Jerry Bruckheimer, $100 million
7. Steven Spielberg, $100 million
8. George Lucas, $95 million
9. Beyoncé, $87 million
10. Dr. Phil, $80 million
11. Simon Cowell, $80 million
12. Jerry Seinfeld, $75 million
13. Britney Spears, $64 million
14. Lady Gaga, $62 million
15. Madonna, $58 million
16. Sandra Bullock, $56 million
17. Ellen DeGeneres, $55 million
18. Miley Cyrus, $48 million
19. Taylor Swift, $45 million
20. Judge Judy Sheindlin, $45 million

Wait what, Britney earned more than Lady Gaga? Seriously now? I would have lost that bet if someone asked me which of them had earned more.

As for Leonardo DiCaprio, he made the film industry $1.1 billion dollars this year with his movies, Inception and Shutter Island. According to a list compiled by Forbes, he made Hollywood more money than anyone. No report on what he actually took in himself though.

 

Christina Aguilera Gets a Hollywood Star

Look who received her Star on the Hollywood Boulevard this afternoon, Christina Aguilera in full-on pork mode. Well at least her body double did… Snooki wearing a bleached wig.

You just gotta love the trashy, self-entitled hooker wearing a cross, and pretty much showing her beaver. Guess she must have divorced her stylist too.  Plus, couldn’t she have given her mom a few bucks for a new outfit for the “special occasion”? That special occasion being that she finally decided to cough up the $30,000 to get the star, since ANYONE can get one of these stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame as long as they pay.

Forbes:Will Ferrell most overpaid actor in Hollywood

08_heidi-klum-will-ferrell_09

Funnyman Will Ferrell and British actor Ewan McGregor on Wednesday headed a Forbes.com list of Hollywood’s most overpaid stars when looking at the financial returns of their movies.

Billy Bob Thornton, Tom Cruise and Jim Carrey also made the top 10 tally of actors who cost more to hire than they appear to be worth at box offices.

Ferrell took first place largely due to the flop of his summer 2009 movie “Land of the Lost”, which Forbes said cost an estimated $100 million to make but earned just $65 million at box offices worldwide for movie studio Universal Pictures.

The movie followed a disappointing $43 million box office for Ferrell’s 2008 outing “Semi-Pro“, and $128 million for “Step Brothers“.

Using a formula that calculated the actor’s estimated salary on each film, including DVD and TV sales, compared to the film’s revenues from theater box offices and elsewhere, Forbes.com said that for every dollar Ferrell was paid, his films earned an average $3.29.

To create the list, the financial news website looked at Hollywood’s 100 biggest stars who had lead performances in at least three widely distributed movies in the last five years.

McGregor, best known for “Trainspotting” and his work in the “Star Wars” franchise, is not among Hollywood’s highest paid actors but has recently proved a poor investment, averaging a return of $3.75.

Cruise, considered one of the biggest players in Hollywood, came sixth on the list with a return on investment of $7.18. Forbes said he had benefited from deals where he took nothing up front in return for a portion of the box-office gross. The deal resulted in Cruise getting paid for films like “Lions for Lambs” even if the studio did not recoup its money.

Eddie Murphy commanded a high salary after the success of family comedies like “The Nutty Professor“. But his most recent films “Meet Dave” and “Imagine That” were box office duds, taking Murphy to fourth place for earning an average $4.43 for each dollar he was paid, Forbes.com said.

Forbes 10 Most Overpaid Stars were;

1. Will Ferrell ($3.29)

2. Ewan McGregor ($3.75)

3. Billy Bob Thornton ($4)

4. Eddie Murphy ($4.43)

5. Ice Cube ($4.77)

6. Tom Cruise ($7.18)

7. Drew Barrymore ($7.43)

8. Leonardo DiCaprio ($7.52)

9. Samuel Jackson ($8.59)

10. Jim Carrey ($8.62)

 

Airhead Cavallari dons sparkle sack for Nylon launch party

cavallari sparkle sack

Warning: Objects standing next to giant potted plant may be dumber than they appear. Cavallari looked outright lame in a shredded up sack that some coked-up designer thought might pass for sexy.

Speaking of huge mistakes, K-Cav was quoted at the party as saying the clumsy attempt at setting back women’s rights that was Heidi Montag’s abysmal performance at Sunday night’s Miss Universe Pageant had “really impressed” her. Facts are in folks, Cavallari not only has terrible taste in fashion, she may actually be entering a near comatose state of stupidity.
