20 Celebs Who Aren't Assholes (Of The Day)

They do exist, believe it or not.

From The Frisky.


“I met Jason at a friend’s New Year’s Eve party. He was so sweet and he was kind of hitting on me. But then I got chocolate-covered marshmallow all over my face and he bailed. Sigh.”


“Liz and I had a 15-minute phone conversation booked, and she stayed on for an hour and a half and told me we were like ‘sisters.’ (Uh, grain of salt.) She is surprisingly girly—as in, she wants to talk about hair and makeup and clothes. She’s also a total beauty product junkie.”


“I met Joseph when he was doing an art show with my friend in Brooklyn. He introduced himself as “Jo” as he shook another friend’s hand. She said under her breath “...seph Gordon Levitt.” Very sweet and cordial guy. And obviously, beautiful and talented as well.”


“I met Anne Hathaway at an after-party for Becoming Jane. She was personally saying hello to each guest at the party and walked right up to me and said, ‘Hi, I’m Annie!’ It turns out that she and the friend I came to the party with knew each other from way back, so they chatted for a bit. She seemed genuinely sweet and normal.”


“Hands down, the most wonderful celebrity I’ve interviewed was Robert Smith of The Cure. I’ve idolized him since I was, oh, 12—so I was literally shaking when I walked into the room. He made me a lovely gin and tonic to calm my nerves. After our 10-minute interview turned into an hour, he said it was one of the most fun ones he’d done in years. Swoon.”


“My dad is besties with Gene Hackman who is a totally awesome guy with tons of amazing stories. Strangely enough, he is also an incredibly talented painter and has gifted my parents’ restaurant a lot of artwork. He even put up with me bringing over my fanboy friends to meet him.”


“The coolest/most real star was Patricia Arquette. She sat down and smoked cigarettes with me and we got so chatty that for a minute I forgot it was an interview. She was just very warm and sweet and cool.”

See the rest here.

Vid Of The Day: Jump

Looks fun but you would never get me off the ledge. Actually, you would never get me on the ledge. Pass.

From "A group of five completely insane guys base jump off a cliff around Mirror Lake in Eikesdalen, Norway for the IMAX documentary Adrenaline Rush. For free falling off a cliff, this is surprisingly calming."

It's better in HD if you want to click through and watch it on YouTube.

Artist of the Day: Super Sprayer

Here's a neat little video of artist Brandon McConnell using spray paints, magazine pages, a pie tin, and a blow torch to create art. I recommend that you turn down the volume -- the music is really annoying.


March "Found Porn" Roundup

Many thanks to Cindy, Tim, Donna, Sonya and Woodwoman for having dirty minds and sending in these photos.

Cock Soup is Mom's favorite Marx Brothers movie.

No, no, it's supposed to look like that.
