George Clooney was in Sarnico, Italy today shooting a commercial. One photo agency said it was for Mercedes, another said it was for something else.

I’ve really, really liked Elizabeth Banks ever since The 40 Year Old Virgin. She’s smart and funny and a great character actress in a time when everyone is trying to be a leading lady. So I was surprised when perusing iVillage’s celebrity mom blogger section (yes, this is a real thing) to find her there. Full Story

Please. The way he came up on that boat, wearing the sh-t out of his suit, come on. I will take that over Ryan Lochte any, ANY time. We will get to Ryan Lochte later. But if your argument is that Becks is dumb and talks with a weird voice, you should really, really avoid a Ryan Lochte presser is all I’m saying. Full Story
