Sloths are to Kristen Bell what Brad Pitt is to Dax Shepard

'Hit & Run' Los Angeles Premiere

Dax Shepard may or may not have a massive man crush on Brad Pitt.  To which I say… he can probably get in line.  But where Shepard has other men beat, is that he was actually able to meet his idol at the Oscars.  He recounted his endearing story to Ellen Degeneres when he visited her show in a taping that airs today.

“I had never met him, nor did I ever want to, because I ‘d be afraid I wouldn’t be able to talk to him,” he first admitted.

He said that his magical moment with Brad occurred when Pitt was helping Ellen pass out pizza during the ceremony.

“I’m facing Kristin getting to my seat and she starts pulling my leg, and she goes, ‘He’s talking to you. He’s talking to you!’ And I turn around and Brad Pitt is talking to me from four rows up! He goes, ‘We love your movie.’”

The Parenthood actor directed the comedy ‘Hit and Run’ in 2012 with David Palmer, in which he starred alongside Bell, Tom Arnold, Kristin Chenoweth and Bradley Cooper, among others. “In that moment I completely forget that I had directed a movie, because I just forgot, and I go, ‘What?’” Shepard then reenacted Pitt’s endearing gestures while repeating the compliment, to which he responded, ‘Well, I’ll be dead in two hours, because it won’t get better than this!”

And at that moment, the ceremony’s In Memoriam segment began. “I’m smiling ear-to-ear from the best compliment of my life, and the sad music starts and we start cherishing the folks we’ve lost,” he said. “It was nearly impossible for me to not smile. I’m not kidding and Kristin was like, ‘Okay, get it together.’ I never got it together! We left…there’s photos of me leaving an hour later, like, still smiling.”

You can see the clip here.  Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell come off as the most likable people in Hollywood.  How incredibly cute and seemingly normal are they?

The $1 Billion Selfie


You know the ‘selfie’ I’m talking about.  The one with all my best friends in it?  During this year’s Oscar ceremony, Ellen Degeneres, took the most exciting ‘selfie’ of all time, that included Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Meryl, Streep among others.  The photo was retweeted enough to shut down the site, and now Publicis CEO Maurice Levy, is estimating the value of the famous picture at between $800 million and $1 billion.

The tweet was seen by 37 million people worldwide, according to Twitter numbers. In contrast, 43 million viewers tuned in to the broadcast to see the Samsung snap. Levy said that the product placement was handled by his team.

Levy also took credit for President Barack Obama‘s controversial selfie: “This is something we did for Samsung. It’s us. The two selfies that are so famous — the one with all the actors at the Oscars and the second with President Obama — the two were done by our team.”

Not a bad day’s work for Samsung.  Certainly better than any commercial these days.

Lindsay Lohan Gushes About Oprah

Lindsay Lohan Is All Smiles In NYC

Who’s been watching Lindsay Lohan’s docu-series on OWN?  I haven’t seen it- but have actually heard that it’s better than it should be.  Lohan spent 90 days in rehab last summer, and has been trying to get her life back in order since her departure.  Lohan was on Ellen earlier and attributed much of her turnaround to Oprah Winfrey.

“I speak to her almost every day, and she’s just…she’s been so amazing to me. Just, you know, for everything, even before the show was coming out.”

“I was getting really panicked, because I hadn’t really heard my name anywhere in so long, and I would turn on the TV, and it was right after the Oscars, so I thought I’d have a minute, like I thought it would kind of distract from the show…but then I just kept hearing my name, and I started getting really, like, panicked about it,” Lohan explained. “I just called her, and she was just talking me through it and everything.”

“She got me really into meditation,” the 27-year-old actress added of Winfrey, 60. “I mean, she’s one of the reasons why that’s such a big part of my life. She’s just been a really strong guiding light and force to me as a friend and someone that I admire.”

She also addressed her stay at Cliffside – the rehab center – which was not her first experience with rehab:

“When I went to treatment this time, when I went to Cliffside, I really wanted a moment for myself, and I learned a lot of different tools and things that I didn’t in the past,” she said of how this stay differed from past stays.

“In the past — a lot of people don’t know this — I was sent to rehab to avoid [the police] trying to put me in jail. So it wasn’t something I necessarily wanted or was ready for,” she explained. “This was the first time where I went to Shawn Holley, my lawyer, and said, ‘Look, I need some time. I need to figure something out.’” What she figured out, she said, is that she wants to get back to work. “So I’m just going to do what I have to do to get there again.”

I hope she can do it.  I feel like a broken record with all these young stars who get caught up in the fame, money, trouble.  She was so awesome in Parent Trap and Mean Girls.  It’s so important who these stars surround themselves with.  On a very superficial note- I really think she should stick to the red hair.

Ellen DeGeneres took an Oscars selfie we’ll be talking about for years

ellen oscars selfie

Ellen DeGeneres helmed the Oscars last night, and besides the award winners, there’s one thing everyone’s been talking about: her ultimate superstar selfie with some of the biggest names in the business. As you can see above, Ellen managed to get everyone together for a nice little picture. We’ve got our Jennifer Lawrence, our Bradley Cooper, a little bit of Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt and Kevin Spacey, a cut-off Jared Leto, a sneaky Lupita Nyong’o and her brother Peter and even some Angelina Jolie!

The picture popped up on Ellen’s Twitter page last night and actually crashed the site momentarily as everyone furiously reblogged. It’ll be hard to beat that selfie, that’s for sure! As Ellen herself posted, “If only Bradley’s arm was longer. Best photo ever.”

Ellen DeGeneres & Portia De Rossi Divorcing

Ellen DeGeneres & Portia De Rossi Divorcing

Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres appears on the cover of the new copy of Star magazine with what appears to be a poorly Photoshopped picture of her wife Portia de Rossi. Could Star actually have some insider information about the state of Ellen and Portia’s marriage?!?

There has been jealousy, fighting and drinking according to the magazine’s front cover. They apparently had a nasty showdown which resulted in Portia storming out of the room. The magazine also makes it a point to state that Ellen is “faking it” for her fans. Why she would need to do that is beyond me, but she could be putting on the front of happiness so no one knows what’s really going on behind closed doors.

Has Portia really been telling her friends that she feels like a prisoner in her marriage to Ellen? If she tells anyone, perhaps it should be her wife and not the gossiping girls?

They fought so hard for their marriage to be recognized in the eyes of the law and the public, but that didn’t mean that it would necessarily last, right? What do you think?
