The Rock Professes His Undying Love for Frances McDormand

Recently, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson went on Ellen DeGeneres’ show to share his surprising celebrity crush. It turns out that the former wrestler has a thing for Academy Award favorite Frances McDormand, and the admiration started when the renowned actress went to pick up her Golden Globe. In what Johnson described as an “out of the blue” moment, McDormand went to shake the hand of his 16-year-old daughter, Simone, right before stepping onstage to claim her award. Understandably, Simone was thrilled as a result. This interaction, Johnson reported, sparked a great admiration within him.

When Johnson admitted his crush to DeGeneres, the talk show host agreed that he had excellent taste. Johnson, who was dressed in a stylish blue jacket, also informed Ellen that he planned on marrying McDormand, even though both he and the actress are already married. Joking that his wife, Lauren Hashian, would be fine with the situation, the wrestler seemed utterly charmed by McDormand’s moves. Not only did the award-winning actress greet his daughter before accepting her award, but she also acknowledged the girl afterwards.

After Johnson repeated that he planned on marrying McDormand, DeGeneres opined that perhaps this was all just a bit “weird”. As the most recently named Golden Globes Ambassador, it would appear that Simone Johnson has a big future ahead of her indeed. With a powerhouse producer mother and a movie star dad, it seems as if the sky is the limit. Now, with an acknowledgment from a huge movie star, everything truly is coming up roses for this movie star’s beautiful daughter.

Win a Pink Deadpool Outfit When You F*ck Cancer

Do you hate cancer? Do you like heroes with cancer? Then this is the opportunity for you, as you could win a pink Deadpool costume by donating $10 to fight breast cancer!

The campaign was announced by Ryan Reynolds, wearing the off-color suit and sitting in a disheveled room with numerous other pink items. He addresses his fans in his characteristic style of calm insanity.

“Oh, hello there. You may be wondering why the pink suit? So that the world can see that I have a big ol’ heart-on. That’s heart with a ‘t,'” he adds.

Speaking on behalf of the artfully named “F-ck Cancer” campaign (see more here), he says that he will be giving out not only the pink suit that he is wearing, as well as other movie memorabilia.

“Will you add it to your weekly wardrobe rotation? Does it become a colorful addition to your S&M dungeon? Or will you simply nail it to a post to scare away birds, children and the elderly?” The choice is yours, Deadpool says.

He also adds that in this campaign, anyone can be a hero, without superpowers, capes or “lame CG costumes”—a reference to Reynolds’ role in Green Lantern, which was criticized for using computer graphics on the outfits.

In the comics, Deadpool (real name Wade Wilson) is disfigured from his cancer, but due to his healing power, cannot actually die from it. Having gone crazy, he is foul-mouthed, violent and murders people for money, so it’s nice to know that he (or at least the people who make his movies) can take a break and still do some good, too.

Deadpool 2 will be out in theaters on May 18, but donate $10 and you can enter for that costume today!

The Museum of Selfies Lights Up Los Angeles

It’s a museum unlike any other, and perhaps it’s fitting that it has made its home in Los Angeles, the city perhaps best known for boasting a bit of narcissism. The Museum of Selfies opened up with great fanfare on March 31. Located on a nondescript corner of Brand Boulevard in Glendale, this museum hosts what it known to be the world’s longest selfie stick, in addition to a whole array of other exciting oddities.

For Game of Thrones fans, there is an “iron throne” composed of phones and tripods. Some of the other interesting exhibits include an optical illusion room that has been crafted with only white walls and black tape. Fans of classical art will enjoy the hilarious homage to David, in which the famous figure holds up a mobile phone to check his appearance. At the grand opening event, actresses Amber Hubert and Kimberly Trew were the first to receive “selfie cookies” compliments of the museum. Posing for a quick photo op, they were amazed to see their faces portrayed on a sugar cookie just a few moments later.

Beyond the velvet ropes, one could also experience a brief history of the selfie. From the first daguerreotype selfie to a primate posing with a knowing smile, the museum is full of fascinating selfie events in world history. For those who enjoy posing with eye-catching objects, there are many available at this gallery. From giant sushi pieces and a huge broccoli floret to a Volkswagen made of mirror-like material, there truly is something for every kind of selfie taker. However, this museum won’t be around forever. The limited engagement ends on May 31, so those who want to get their selfie time in should nab their tickets before this artistic exhibit ends.

Wonder Woman Scores a Star

It’s hard to believe that Lynda Carter is 66 years old. The incredible actress, who will forever be remembered for her role as Wonder Woman, has been seen in public a lot more recently. First, there was last year’s press junket for the newest Wonder Woman offering, this one featuring actress Gal Gadot in the lead role. Although details weren’t mentioned, it seems that director Patty Jenkins would love for Carter to participate in a future sequel.

Also, Carter was recently honored with her own star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, which is a huge honor in itself. With her husband and her two children with her, Carter cut an elegant figure as she went to claim her star. It wasn’t surprising to see that so may fans gathered to witness this iconic moment—and they weren’t the only ones! There were also some VIPs in attendance, with producer Jerry Bruckheimer and actress Marilu Henner stopping by to pay their respects. Les Moonves was also in attendance. Many of the people present adopted Wonder Woman’s signature pose when they stopped for a photo, paying homage to the role for which Carter attained Hollywood immortality.

From 1975 to 1979, Carter took to television screens to portray Wonder Woman. These days, she doesn’t look all that different! Dressed in a beautiful black dress that showcased her toned figure, it’s easy to see why so many are still in love with Lynda Carter. Director Patty Jenkins undoubtedly started up the rumor mill again with her appearance at the elegant event, making fans ponder what role Carter could have in a potential sequel.

Meghan Markle’s Tostitos Commercial Resurfaces

Now that American actress Meghan Markle is preparing to marry Prince Harry in the coming weeks, the spotlight is on her—and some of her past work! While the world was aware that she was a Deal or No Deal briefcase model during a brief spell around 2007, many were completely unaware of Markle’s iconic 2009 Tostitos ad. In the commercial, Markle contemplates the merits of different bags of chips. Expressing dismay that the first bag she grabs just happens to contain 13 ingredients, she then finds Tostitos. Pleased that the chips contain only three ingredients, Markle then proceeds to toss them in her cart.

Although it may seem like an inauspicious ad, it is interesting to note that all of Megan’s trademark features—her clear eyes and glowing skin—are on full display. And although the commercial was presumably shot about a decade ago, Markle still looks almost exactly the same. Indeed, the spirited future royal definitely gave her all to shooting this ad.

Of course, Markle’s acting career consisted of much more than a chip ad and a role on Howie Mandel’s game show. Her big break came when she was cast in the role of a lawyer on the TV show Suits. Hopefully all of this time in the spotlight has prepared Meghan for a role in the royal family, which definitely comes with its own unique set of pressures. However, Prince Harry definitely seems to believe that his new love is capable of taking on the task; he is so confident in the match that he has stated that he does not want a pre-nup.

Cast Jokes About Thanos’ Demands For Silence

The directors of Avengers: Infinity War have begun a humorous campaign to prevent spoilers for their movie, and naturally the stars are going to jump at the chance to joke about it.

Called #ThanosDemandsYourSilence, the campaign was begun by Joe and Anthony Russo, directors of the upcoming epic, by posting a letter on Twitter. Thanos is the name of the main villain, an immortal alien seeking to gain the Infinity Stones and conquer reality.

Robert Downey Jr., who plays Tony Stark/Iron Man, was fairly straightforward about the request. “I trust you all can keep a secret…no spoilers please,” he wrote on his Twitter account.

Tom Holland (Peter Parker/Spider-Man), who has a bit of a reputation for accidentally letting information leak in interviews, was a bit more playful. “This letter was originally addressed to me,” he claimed.

Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton/Hawkeye) also quipped about the matter. “I say nothing…cause I know nothing…” he said. This seems to be a reference to the fact that he has not been featured much in any promotional materials, leading many fans to wonder how much of the movie he is actually in.

Instagram also saw some responses from actors, with Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda Maximoff/the Scarlet Witch) reposting the picture and Sebastian Shaw (Bucky Barnes/the Winter Soldier) merely noting that he is “exciting things to come.”

Avengers: Infinity War is the culmination of the Marvel Cinematic Universe up until now, featuring every hero from a previous movie, from (ex-)Avengers to the Guardians of the Galaxy. All will have to come together to combat Thanos, and all will be vying for attention in the first part of the two-piece film.

As the promotional tour begins for its late-April release, let’s hope that everyone heeds Thanos’ orders.

Everyone, including Adam Milstein has to wonder about that. however, Milstein is confident that due to the creativeness and enginuity of the Jewish race a new leader will continue to emerge.

Why is Adam Milstein so confident of this? It is probably because in his work as a pro-Israel journalist, activist, and philanthropist, he has seen it first-hand. He also knows that the Next Generation of Jewish leaders will definitely be passionate innovative and hard-working. He sees it first of all when these youngsters return from the Birthright ceremonies, and how proud they are of their newly-discovered connection to Israel.

Milstein cannot help but be encouraged when he also sees them in the Israeli-American Council and being involved in the Tzofim and B’nei Akiva youth groups. Moreover, As a world traveler he sees them all over the world, and their energetic fight to take on racism, bigotry, and anti-Semitism whatever they might find it.

Adam milstein knows that the task for the older generation is to equip these youngsters with a platform to help them express their ideas and become a part of the Jewish community. Simply put, if we equip them, they will be an asset. Even if we are the older Jewish generation, Adam Milstein knows that we can make an impact simply by what we leave behind.
