In David Beckham‘s new fragrance commercial, the soccer hunk tells his tailor, “I have all I need,” after he changes into a freshly pressed shirt, jacket, and spritzes himself with his scent.
Well, Mr. Beckham, your abs show is all we need to get us through another working day, as we count down the hours to the glorious weekend.
The ridiculously handsome Beckham shared the new ad for his fragrance “David Beckham Classic” on his Facebook and YouTube pages on Wednesday, writing, “Here is my new COTY campaign, we had fun shooting it! Hope you all like it.”
Like it? We love it.
Craving more from the 38-year-old stud? The campaign includes an interview with Beckham, by Beckham.
For example, when asked if he considers himself good-looking, Beckham says, “No, not really but I like to think I’ve got my own distinct look, which reflects who I am as a person and the way I evolve as a man.”
Someone get the man a working mirror.
As anyone who follows Heidi Klum on Facebook knows all too well, she isn’t shy about a little nudity.
From a bit of booty here, to a bare bosom there, the supermodel is all about baring that beautiful skin of hers in photos. But not all the snaps are selfies, leaving one to wonder: Who’s behind that lens?
“The photographer was my mom. The credit goes to my mom,” Klum told Extra! of the topless, tree-hugging picture she posted from her getaway in Bora Bora. “I took the same photo of my mom. She was wearing a bathing suit.”
“You will be surprised when you hear that my mom takes most of the photos,” she explained to Access Hollywood. “Yeah, my mom and dad. They were on holiday. Yes, so my mom can take some good photos.”
But what’s with her boycott on bathing suit tops? Well, it’s in her roots. “I’m European. I don’t like wearing tops, and I don’t like tan lines” she told Access. “I grew up, you know, running around topless,” she added to Extra! “And I still do.”
And millions of men thank you for that, Heidi.
Seeing your favorite celebrities out and about without a full face of makeup on is kind of relieving, right? When you strip away the millions of dollars and awards and designer gowns and sexy significant others and everything else, they really are just like us, huh? Right?
Anyway. Red-carpet and all-around beauty Scarlett Johansson was the latest celebrity to go au natural, as they say, as she caught a flight this week out of LAX. Though she didn’t wear any makeup, she was seen wearing a Yankees hat and a shirt that had the word “Paris” on it. Which is about as confusing as it gets, but hey, she looked good.

Paula Deen Employee Ineata Jones Reacts To Aunt Jemima Costume Comment: ‘I Don’t Remember Nothing Like That’
Things aren’t all gloom and doom for Paula Deen.
In a world where everyone is turning their backs on the disgraced celeb chef, she’s got a friend in employee Ineata Jones, who’s shooting down a report that she was asked to wear an Aunt Jemima costume at work.
Dora Charles, a longtime friend of Deen’s and cook at her restaurant Lady & Sons, opened up to the New York Times about what it’s really like working with the silver-haired chef (and it’s not a pretty picture.)
Among the people asked to partake in racially questionable acts at the restaurant included Jones, who Charles purports was in charge of ringing the iron dinner bell (which was depicted on a postcard sold at the eatery), cooking the cornmeal pancakes known as ‘hoecakes’ and was asked to don an “old-style Aunt Jemima outfit.”
Although Jones, 67, admits to all of her duties (dinner bell ringing and hoecake-making included), she’s a bit fuzzy on Deen’s costume request.
“Oh, no, no, no! I don’t remember nothing like that. I don’t remember none of that stuff. It’s been so long ago, I don’t know,” Jones told Celebuzz.
“I do get upset (at this).
“They need to leave her (Deen) alone!”
Jones is a staunch supporter of her employer who she’s worked with for 18 years, during which time she admits they’ve developed a somewhat unconventional relationship.
“We both cuss at each other and we still do. That’s how we communicate. That’s my girl!” she added.
And Jones says Deen has never been discriminatory.
“She’s never treated me like that.
“I still work with her and will never do anything to hurt her,” she added.
“I’ve never had problems with her.
“She’s done so much for all kinds of people. And me! She’s done good.”
And about why Charles would include her in any headline-making remarks? Jones doesn’t know, doesn’t care and just wants to be left out of it.
“I’m sorry she brought my name up…. She’s got her problems why she’s doing it.”
Deen has also denied the allegation.
Oh, cool, look what Twitter did now: Sharknado is coming to movie theaters. The Syfy made-for-TV movie about a tornado of sharks (enough said!) will screen at midnight on Aug. 2 at 200 Regal movie theaters across the country, including New York’s Regal Union Square Stadium 14 and Los Angeles’ Regal L.A. Live Stadium 14. You can see a full list of participating theaters here.
While Sharknado was a hit on Twitter, it was actually sort of a ratings dud. I mean, barely more than a million people watched it. In the 18-49 demographic, it earned a 0.4 rating. A rerun of The Big Bang Theory got nearly 7 million more viewers. But Syfy is betting on Sharknado nonetheless, hoping it will become a cult hit, in the same vein of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. “You know how audiences have had fun with Rocky Horror Picture Show over the years. If the internet reactions to this film are any indication, then our moviegoers are primed and ready to enjoy Sharknado larger than life in cinemas,” Regal’s director of digital marketing Chris Sylvia said in a statement.
In addition to its theatrical release, Sharknado is also getting a sequel, this one to be set in New York City.
This film was highly anticipated both by myself and most of the world. The comedy combination of Simon Pegg, Edgar Wright, and Nick Frost are unmatchable and without it the world would be a much less humorous place. I had thought about making a joke about how without them and their comedy that the world might come to an end and then I would have put a few dots and put THE WORLD’S END! But I ultimately decided against it because it wasn’t a particularly funny.
The World’s End is the third film in a trilogy penned by long time buddies Wright and Pegg and usually with a trilogy, a third film means it’s over. It’s sad to think that we won’t be getting any more movies along the likes of Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz but this trilogy will go down in history as one of the funniest of all time.
Let’s move on to why this movie is so great. Please note this article contains minor spoilers.
4. Constant Hilarity
I’m clearly a huge fan of Simon Pegg, Edgar Wright, and Nick Frost and I have been ever since their days doing their perfect television show Spaced but this film brings more beloved actors to the screen that bleed brilliance everywhere. These actors include Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, and Eddie Marsan.
My theater atrium for this movie was sold out; I am convinced that I got the last two tickets because when my date and I entered the theater there were only two seats remaining and even though they were god awful seats, the movie made it worth every uncomfortable second.
The entire theater had a hive mind when it came to laughing at the film. When a joke was told or something funny happened, everyone laughed in unison.
