-- Now I want a baby duck for my sink. Especially since I have two.
-- If you were curious, Henry Cavill shunned steroids to take on the role of Superman.
"I wanted it to be me," he says. "It helped me get into character. And also because it's my name. I wanted to provide that image (of Superman) and make it reality."
Cavill dove into the workouts and a 5,000-calorie daily diet to bulk up. The subsequent body-sculpting phases, when he drastically cut the calories, were far harder to handle. But Snyder says the actor never lost his cool — even when he was shirtless and wet for scenes shot outside in Vancouver, British Columbia.
-- Joss Whedon won't do Avengers 2 without RDJ.
As Whedon told The Daily Beast, "He is Iron Man. He is Iron Man in the way that Sean Connery was James Bond. I have no intention of making Avengers 2 without him, nor do I think I’ll be called upon to do that. I don’t think it’s in my interest, Marvel’s interest, or his interest, and I think everything will be fine."
-- Daft Punk, unhelmeted.
-- Which NBA team is the most tattooed? Hard to believe that THREE players on this team DON'T have ink. Cut them, right?
-- Vote for Fifth Third Field's Fantastic Freeze Sundae for the #foodfight.
-- This is a trailer. With two sentences of dialogue.
-- Big breasts got this girl booted from her prom.
Brittany Minder is sharing her story because she doesn't want anyone else to suffer the pain and humiliation that she did on a night meant for celebration.
Minder's search for the perfect prom dress took her all the way to Canada, but when she showed up at the senior prom in her brand-new gown, she was told she couldn't come inside.
"In my opinion, I feel that it is because I'm bigger chested and there is more cleavage that you can see, and there's nothing I could really do about that," she said.
-- Beautiful Israeli women in just their underwear, and weapons. It's not a porno.
These are the pictures of female soldiers baring more than their arms which led to them being disciplined by commanders in Israel.
One of the images posted on Facebook shows the women wearing only combat helmets with ammo bags to protect their modesty.
In another they are topless with backs to the camera and assault rifles slung across their buttocks.
The group, with their faces blurred in the pictures which surfaced yesterday, appeared to be in a barrack room.
Israeli news site Walla said the young women were new recruits on a base in the country’s south.
-- I'm excited for Man Of Steel, but when it comes to Superman in general I could really take it or leave it. I know the general history of the character, but couldn't go very intricate on adversaries or important story lines.
What I am revved up for is what's going to be an epic Hans Zimmer soundtrack. He did the Nolan Batman movies, and much more, and some of the selections from those movies have become my favorite SONGS.
This kid does a good job of replicating the MOS theme.
-- Yep, when you're 84 and win hundreds of millions in Powerball, you take the one time payout.
Gloria Mackenzie, 84, was identified at a 3 p.m. press conference Wednesday.
She didn't attend the press conference, although under Florida law, her name was disclosed. Mackenzie elected to receive her winnings in a lump-sum payment, worth a pre-tax $370.8 million.
She bought the winning ticket at a Publix supermarket in Zephyrhills, a town of 13,000 about 30 miles northeast of Tampa.
-- I've seen the Mud Hens tweeting about the Fantastic Freeze Sundae, so I'm aware of its existence. I had no idea it was 15 scoops of ice cream in a full size helmet!
The Fantastic Freeze Sundae, courtesy of the Toledo Mud Hens, is little better. Served in a full-sized team helmet, the sundae includes 15 scoops of ice cream, topped with whipped cream, hot fudge, rainbow sprinkles, peanuts, cherries (and, if requested, the scattered-like-ashes dandruff flakes of Mud Hens manager Phil Nevin or batting coach Leon Durham). Lastly, there is the Nuke Dog, the Durham Bulls’ brand new Carolina Packers red hot dog with crushed red pepper and spicy relish. By comparison it’s relatively tame, in that it has fewer than 12,471 calories and won’t send one running to the dermatologist. And yet, this truly awful looking selection also symbolizes all that is wrong with the modern minor league game.
That's from a Sports Illustrated article panning the food gorging you can do at many minor league ball parks. Yep. We ARE a long way from hot dogs and burgers. It's all out food race to see who can tastify the most possible calories in one choice. I'm not being critical either. I typically eat clean, but when I don't...I don't :).
-- The Miami Heat advanced to the NBA Finals last night over the Indiana Pacers. Justin Bieber was there and looked like a douchebag of all douchebags. And Flo-Rida tossed out his own bodyguard because he got with the Pacers bench near the end of the game after a dust up in the game. Got that?
If Ryan Lochte and Bieber were in the same room together, the laws of physics would need to be rewritten.
This photo is somehow gaining comedy. It's funnier than it was 30 minutes ago. twitpic.com/cv58mw— Bill Simmons (@BillSimmons) June 4, 2013
-- Some facts about what Michael Douglas said regarding his cancer.
His comment is making headlines, either because it's news to some that about half of throat cancer is caused by HPV, or just because a celebrity called attention to it. Or because a successful, respected guy like Douglas talked about getting what's often essentially a sexually transmitted cancer. In any case, HPV is predicted to cause more oral and throat cancers than cervical cancers in the U.S by 2020.
-- Benecio Del Toro - and THAT look - has been cast for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. I'd say bigger than that is that possibly the best working, living (obv.) of our time also signed on for the blockbuster in the making.
