the ScarJo quiz - LOL

Linney 'flushes in sex scenes'? What kind of kinky sex scenes is she filming...?

Oh...right...nevermind.

I'd take Linney over a toaster oven, too.

The final nail in the coffin for the toaster is that if you had a Laura Linney, you could just ask her to take the time heating the pizza in a real oven, and she'd probably do it, cause she seems really nice. She puts toasters to shame.

Why do Ryan Seacrest, the Olsen Twins, Britney Spears, etc have stars on the walk of fame and Bruce Willis is only just getting one now? Strange.

That ScarJo thing is very funny. I didn't even look!

glenn, the stars are one of the weirdest fame items. You basically have to ask or have someone ask on your behalf. So naturally the fame whores fight for it and the true stars wait around until it happens.

Consider this: Michelle Pfeiffer doesn't have one yet either. (though hers is coming within the year supposedly)

I don't think the Ryan Seacrest has one. Actually, I'm pretty sure of it.

15 year old blogger said...

I was wrong. Cross that out. It's just surprsied me. Ladies and Gentlemen, Ryan Seacrest has a Walk of fame, and Michelle Pfeiffer does not.

15 year old blogger said...

I don't think that Kate Winslet has one...Celebs who will be getting new stars in 2007 include: for movies: Matt Damon, Michelle Pfeiffer, Michael Caine, Jamie Foxx, John Goodman, director Robert Altman and producer Lauren Shuler Donner; for TV: Kiefer Sutherland, Barbara Walters, Erik Estrada, Jerry Stiller, and "Law & Order" creator Dick Wolf; for musical recording: Mariah Carey, Sean "Diddy" Combs, The Doors, Crystal Gayle, Tim McGraw, LeAnn Rimes, and Shania Twain; for radio: sportscaster Stu Nahan and rock disc jockey Rodney Bingenheimer; for live theatre/performance: Lily Tomlin and composer Tim Rice.

So does anyone ever say NO when some fame whore asks? How awkward.

I don't even know who Ryan Seacrest is.

American Idol Adam. American Idol. *hangs head in shame at the state of television*

I knew the process of getting stars. The "star" also has to pay to not only get the star but to have it taken care of.

Look at it this way: "stars" like the Olsen twins and Britney Spears -- not to mention Ryan (gag) Seacrest (barf) -- who already sully the sidewalks on the glittery streets of Hollywood before they can even rent a car, represent the lowest caste in the three tiers of Walk of Fame shrinedom.

They are not stars in the traditional sense, but rather of the "flash in the pan" variety. They may generate a lot of superficial heat but fade or burn out quickly.

They get enshrined for "It" status *brevity* -- a sparkly-but-phony, cubic zirconia version of diamond-encruted sidewalk real estate -- as opposed to true icon stature (see Michelle Pfeiffer) or career *longevity* (a la Robert Altman).

Hurriedly we walk OVER their slabs on our way to the real thing (i.e. the ones for true movie stars and entertainment legends), perhaps spitting our gum or putting out a cigarette on them as we pass. Just a thought...

There was a guy who, on his blog, dared somebody to actually go out and defecate Ryan Seacrest's star because it was so ridiculous that he got one. You needed to provide photographic evidence.

Which was pretty much the funniest slash grossest thing I'd read that week.
