Alyssa Milano has a sex tape. The Charmed star revealed on Wednesday that she and an unnamed male companion vacationed in Cabo recently and taped their bedroom antics.
The scene was set with a classy hotel suite, rose petals scattered on the bed and floor, candles giving the room a romantic glow.
But when the time came for action, Alyssa bumped the camera she had just set up and it spun around to focus on… the nightly news, where an anchorman was relaying all the details about the current situation in Syria and the U.S. being at the doorstep of yet another war.
Of course, the video is just a gag for Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s comedy website Funny or Die!, but, like numerous others before it, it’s meant to raise a little political awareness about a humanitarian issue.
Milano’s video was made with the purpose of sending a message and getting people to see that there are some major issues going on in the world right now.
“I think it was a really fun way to get people to realize that there are important issues our country is dealing with right now,” the actress tells website Mother Jones. “If people end up learning something about the crisis in Syria that’s a good thing-even if I had to do a sex tape to lure them in.”
So basically, Alyssa thinks we’re all sitting around watching celebrity sex tapes and have no clue about the Syrian Civil War that’s going on right now, currently puttin the government between a rock and a hard place on whether or not to order an air strike on the nation over President Bashar al-Assad’s alleged use of chemical weapons.
The Board of Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced the recipients of four honorary awards it will give out this year at the fifth annual Governor’s Awards gala in November.
Angelina Jolie, who will be presented with the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award, will be joined by Angela Lansbury, Steve Martin and costume designer Piero Tosi.
“The Governors Awards pay tribute to individuals who’ve made indelible contributions in their respective fields,” said Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs. “We couldn’t be more excited for this year’s honorees and look forward to bringing their peers and colleagues together to celebrate their extraordinary achievements.”
The honorary awards come in the forme of the typical Oscar statuette, and are given “to honor extraordinary distinction in lifetime achievement, exceptional contributions to the state of motion picture arts and sciences, or for outstanding service to the Academy.”
Jolie’s award is also an Oscar, her second (she won Best Supporting Actress for 1999’s Girl, Interrupted), which is given to a person in the motion picture industry “whose humanitarian efforts have brought credit to the industry.”
The awards will be presented Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland Center on Saturday, November 16.
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth reportedly acted like “strangers” at the ‘Paranoia’ premiere last night.
The couple – who got engaged last summer – haven’t been seen together at a red carpet event in over a year, but despite their attempts to play down speculation their romance is on the rocks, they kept their distance from each other at the debut of Liam’s movie in Los Angeles.
A source told Us Weekly magazine: “Miley and Liam acted like they didn’t even know each other the entire night. She was wearing her ring but they acted as if they were strangers.”
The singer attempted to cozy up to the 23-year-old actor by giving him a few quick kisses, but he reportedly didn’t appear too excited by them.
The source explained: “They [the kisses] were awkward and he didn’t seem into them.”
Liam also refused to answer any questions about his lover, insisting he keeps his private life to himself.
He said: “I don’t share anything personal. I try to keep as much of my personal life to myself. I don’t feel the need to go out and show the world what’s happening in my life every second.”
Sunday night Kristen Stewart suprised fans by arriving at the 85th Annual Academy Awards on crutches.
She was helped out of her limosine with the aid of the medical device before posing on the red carpet in a white and gold Reem Acra gown without them.
On Saturday she was spotted limping during rehearsals for the prestigious event.
According to People.com, she injured herself after stepping on a piece of glass. Her make-up artist told the website: “[She] cut the ball of her foot, quite severely, on glass two days ago,” adding she was in “a little bit of pain.”
Her hair stylist told Us Weekly: “We all were trying to make her feel better and her friends were trying to tell her she’d be fine, she has insecurities about being in front of people so today was even tougher.”
It must have been a rough few days for the star. On Saturday night her film “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2” dominated the 2013 Golden Raspberry Awards, which “honors” the year’s worst films.
Among other awards, the vampire film was voted “Worst Picture,” and Stewart landed the “Worst Actress” accolade. She did not attend the event.
Charlize Theron came to the rescue of a security guard who suffered a seizure before the Academy Awards on Sunday, according to a report.
The Monster star was heading into the prizegiving at Los Angeles’ Dolby Theater when a man working at the ceremony fell to the ground.
Editors at E! Online report Theron rushed to the security guard’s aid as another onlooker phoned a doctor.
Theron didn’t let the drama affect her appearance at the ceremony – she teamed up with Channing Tatum to perform a ballroom routine while host Seth MacFarlane sang Fred Astaire’s The Way You Look Tonight.
Speaking to E! Online later in the evening, Theron said of her performance, “(It was) completely nerve-wracking, but how could I not dance with Channing Tatum? He’s so wonderful!”
“I was sort of tricked into it. I thought it was going to be something smaller, like he (MacFarlane) pulls me up from the audience and we do a little spin. But then he was was like, ‘Rehearsals start Monday!'”
