'Special' Celebrities and Hollywood stars who make you laugh and smile by being overly pampered, out-of-touch, eccentric, or hilariously delusional.

Don’t stand so close to Bruce Willis

Covering celebrities is a lot of hurry up and wait. Press events always require media to arrive early and then stand around for hours as the stars inevitably run behind. Boring as f-ck yes, but this is always when you exchange war stories, compare notes – who’s a great interview, who has an eating disorder, who can’t go five minutes with locking himself in the bathroom for a quick rail, who bites her fingernails and messes with your shot because she’s nic-fitting all over the junket room. Full Story

Pacey-Con the video

You saw the photos yesterday, now Funny or Die has uploaded the video. It’s not the best Funny or Die piece ever, it’s a little contrived and obvious, but his shirt makes up for it, and of course the song, and the shot of him looking out his hotel room window kills me. Makes me want to go back and watch Dawson’s Creek from the beginning. Full Story

There’s Robert Pattinson’s unintentional comedy, and then there’s Pacey-Con San Diego 2010. The.Best. He’s the best. Joshua Jackson was at Comic-Con for Fringe. On his down time he decided to go back to Capeside, wardrobe and all, for some fan fiction reading, and of course a little Paula Cole blaring from a boom box. Full Story

These photos and this video are making my life. Robert Pattinson went to the movies on Saturday with his agent. Then he hit up a party in Malibu. The paps were all over him. First time? No but this time a tweaky Pattinson was extra agitated about the attention, whining that they were following him, trying to enlist the help of the cops who didn’t give a sh-t, wandering around seemingly aimlessly, rubbing his nose in his totally inconspicuous, non eye-catching, blend-in-anywhere car. Full Story

Dumpster diving

This is what Bill Murray did on Letterman last night. That’s another thing about Letterman over Leno. Cool people prefer Letterman. Bill Murray definitely prefers Letterman. Bill Murray would probably dive into a dumpster for reals before giving Leno any more love than necessary. And Bill went back to Letterman last night to promote Get Low and to also test out Dave’s new dumpster pool. Full Story

He doesn’t do it often. He doesn’t work often. He doesn’t have an agent or a publicist. You can only reach him via 800 number. For reals. So when he does talk, he makes it worthwhile. Always. There was a great article about Bill Murray a couple of weeks ago in Entertainment Weekly about how reclusive and weird he is, about the infamous 800 number, about how you have to fax pages to a random Kinko’s if he’s interested enough to read the script – he’s everything you want your weird celebrity to be and he can back his sh-t up with legitimate skill, original, irreplaceable skill. Full Story

Of course People Magazine has the all “exclusive” Carrie Underwood wedding photos. You get what you pay for. So all that bullsh-t drama leading up to the event, as Country Bitch tried to block public access, and was going full military on the secrecy of the mission and the location and not letting guests know where and when and whatever – all for privacy? Really? Not privacy, no. Full Story

Tom Cruise at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of Mission Impossible 3 in 2006 or Taylor Lautner in Pittsburgh yesterday shooting Abduction? Please. It’s everything. It’s the body type, it’s the mannerisms, it’s the overacting, it’s everything. And these days, Tom Cruise Jr has a bigger career than Tom Cruise Original. Full Story

Apparently it means “Little Tom”, gifted to the GMD in Rio de Janeiro last night at the Brazilian premiere of Knight & Day. He doesn’t look thrilled about it. Or maybe that’s just his box office. As you already know, Knight & Day has underperformed, still not able to pass the $50 million mark after 2 weeks in theatres, and now heavily, heavily relying on foreign box office to make up the difference. Full Story
