Quick Hit Friday . . .

Posted by 2 Dollar Productions Friday, November 14, 2008

"Wow. You've taken good care of your body," - Mads Mikkelsen, "Casino Royale"


This was a bizarre line in an otherwise fine James Bond movie as the screenwriters must have felt the need to draw attention to Daniel Craig's naked body as he is being tortured in a chair by Mikkelsen. Personally, I don't plan to comment on the exercise regime of any male co-workers today, however, I will gladly accept compliments from any source because I refuse to discriminate.

But before anything like that occurs, let's look at the hard stories of the week such as:

Britney Spears’ 2-year-old son, Jayden James - was hospitalized in a Mississippi medical facility and then released this week after having a bad reaction to something he ate.


The doctors on staff narrowed down the offending food to Cheetos, Pop Tarts, Blow-Pops, Yoo-Hoo or possibly a toxic combination of all of the food groups that compete for pantry space at the Spears household.

Adrienne Bailon - the eldest member of the teen pop group The Cheetah Girls - had naked pics floating around cyberspace this week after becoming the victim of an extortion plot, TMZ.com reports.

The 25-year-old’s laptop was stolen in late October while the singer was waiting for a flight at JFK International Airport in New York, and later an anonymous man asked for and was given $1,000 for the return of the computer. He gave it back, however, the nude pics of the singer were missing from the computer.

Bailon had reportedly taken the racy pics as an anniversary present for her Robert Kardashian.


Yet again, this story proves that the only safe haven for celebrity nude pictures is with me, so please send all copies to Austin lest they wind up in the wrong hands.

The Hours Oscar winner Nicole Kidman and Monster Oscar winner Charlize Theron announced they will be starring in an upcoming movie together - as a married couple.

Kidman will star in and produce The Danish Girl, based on a 2000 best-selling novel about real-life Danish artists – and husband and wife – Einar and Greta Wegener. In the 1920s, the male Einar (to be played by Kidman) posed as a woman for his painter wife Greta (to be played by Theron).


In the 2000s, I will pay money to see exactly what kind of posing and painting this entails as I only hope that nude portraits are involved somewhere in the running time.

In other movie news, Beyonce said this week that she is interested in playing 'Wonder Woman' in a movie.

"I want to do a superhero movie and what would be better than Wonder Woman? It would be great," Beyonce told the Los Angeles Times. "And it would be a very bold choice. A black Wonder Woman would be a powerful thing. It's time for that, right?"


I know that the original Wonder Woman - Lynda Carter - caused a 'powerful thing' to rise in me, so I figure it's time that someone else was given a shot as long as the outfit remains intact.

Brad Pitt was the victim of a bizarre incident on Monday when a security guard grabbed him and spun him round at the Los Angeles premiere of his latest movie "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button."

When Pitt arrived, hordes of photographers surged, but instead of shielding Pitt, a plainclothes guard turned on the actor, spinning him around and pulling him backwards, according to People.com. A confused Pitt then broke free, spoke to the man and waited in an upstairs bathroom for the commotion to subside.

Pitt didn't blame the man, however, and said, "Though they were exceptionally more aggressive than usual breaking through a security barrier and into a private holding area, ultimately (it was) just another day in the life. ..."


I thought that being spun around by another man, and then waiting around in public bathrooms was only another day in the life of George Michael.

Jennifer Aniston sat down with Oprah for an interview this week where Anniston addressed the issue of her recent Vogue magazine story that quoted Aniston as saying: "What Angelina did was very uncool."

When questioned Oprah as to why she said that, Aniston replied, "He asked me a question and I, basically, just answered it as honestly as I could."


Aniston then added that she honestly thought that Jolie was a "filthy, two-faced, home-wrecking slut," but that she wished her and Brad all the best.

As always, let's end with a gold image or two:



Sometimes you have to look at things from behind to get into the proper frame of mind. So, don't be afraid to turn things around today, feel free to ponder the state of the world in the rearview mirror and . . . Happy Friday!

  2. Keep me posted for any nude Kidman/Theron action, as I'm SURE you'll be seeing that movie months and months before I will. Have a good weekend.

  4. Happy Friday $2!! good post!

     
  5. Heff - Will do. I try to stay abreast of these situations for myself and others. Ouch. Have a good weekend.

    Nobich - Happy Friday to you & Thanks. It's finally going to get semi-cold here this weekend with sun, so I'm looking forward to the change.

     
  6. I forgot what I was going to write because the word verfication today is "testrack." That sounds too much like a real word.

     
  7. A.B. Says:
  8. Oh jeez, I tried to watch that interview with Aniston and Oprah, but I had to turn it off. I don't care what people say, Brad Pitt made a great decision to leave. He must have been BORED out of his head. I was after 5 minutes of hearing how amazing it was for Jennifer to PLAY a mother in her new movie.

    New Bond movie opens! I'll be there to see that bod and those blue eyes in a tux. Will there be a review? I hope so. Have a fab weekend.

     
  9. WhatIgot - You can never trust word verification as it lives to cause mistrust and confusion. That's OK.

    A.B. - I'm trying like hell to get to the Bond movie this weekend, and if so, then definitely expect a review on Monday. I watched Casino Royale this week as a refresher. And you're far braver than I am to watch that Aniston/Oprah interview as I could barely ready the article discussing it. Ha. Have a great weekend.

     
  10. Miss Ash Says:
  11. Ugh I watch ONE James Bond movie...and it's not the one with the hot naked guy....Dammit!!!

     
  12. Linda Says:
  13. I'm with Aniston, don't need to hear that my husband was falling in love with someone else while married to me. The comment "uncool" was kind, I'd say "what the #$%&*!?" But I don't get quoted on the cover of magazines or chat with Oprah. I'll be watching Bond with the masses this weekend, yummmm. Happy Friday!

     
  14. TROLL Says:
  15. My sources say you have the "Cheetah Girl" story completely wrong. Like you, she worhips Barack Obama and the nude photographs, like yours, were some sort of a bizarre love offering.

     
  16. Miss Ash - You should do your research first. Ha. Casino Royale is worth watching, so go for a rental. And you're welcome.

    Linda - I should be watching Bond with the masses as well, although my plan right now is to catch the early show Sunday morning with as few people as possible. I agree about Anniston, however, I thought her quote about being 'really uncool' was lame. She should have said something much stronger or kept silent in my opinion.

    TheTroll - I believe I mentioned in the post that the pics were meant for her boyfriend (maybe I deleted during editing phase). The only bizarre part in my mind was the extortion bit for a measly $1,000 as that sounds like a low, low price tag.

     
  17. Romany Angel Says:
  18. I typically don't like James Bond movies, in fact I haven't seen one since Roger Moore. Thanks to you I now see what I've been missing out on so expect my viewing habits to change.


    I don't know about over there but it seems to me Jennifer Aniston has kept a fairly dignified silence thus far about Brangelina. If she was going to break it surely she could have come up with something a little less poxy than "uncool".


    As for the extortionist over those nekkid photos...what an amateur! A thousand bucks! That's hilarious and even more so that she actually paid it.


    Great post as always and enjoy your cooler weekend B.

     
  19. I'm just surprised at how many people take nude photos of themselves. Not that I'm complaining, but haven't there been enough "leaks" by now that celebrities think it could be a bad idea?

     
  20. Now I'm off to Google Adrienne Bailon.

     
  21. This just in. Boo!

     
  22. BostonPobble Says:
  23. You know, I would've noticed Daniel Craig's naked body without the line. I'm just detailed oriented like that.

    Have a great weekend!

     
  24. Romany Angel - I tend to agree about Aniston, and that's why I thought it was odd that she finally came out with anything and that is was so lame. Come out swinging or not at all. Ha. And I havent' seen all the Bond movies by any stretch, however, you should check out Casino Royale and see if you like the new edition (sure certain parts work for you). Have a great weekend.

    Native Minnow - I can't believe it was a hoax . . . actually I can, but how ridiculous have things gotten that it seemed like a good idea to drum up publicity that way? Thanks for the link as I had no idea & obviously was behind on the scoop when QHF went to press. You gotta laugh I guess.

    Bostonpobble - Attention to detail is a fine attribute in my opinion, so you should be proud. Ha. Weekend is great so far & hope yours is going well too.

  26. very happy belated friday..I am late this week! is it just me or does Jennifer Anniston seriously have to get on with it! I mean her ex has gone on, met someone else, not talked about her much to the press and had like 14 other kids and she continually talks about him in interviews....who gives a shit...get on with it....move on girl and find some good scripts and better men...she just seems like box office poison, so why go negative in a Vogue article.

     
  27. slopmaster Says:
  28. damn, I am in Africa with super slow connection, and I still can't resist to look up these naked pics you talk about. If you get some good pics, I'll trade u for pics of the police chief's daughter.

    slop

     
  29. Vivavavoom - I tend to agree about Aniston, although I think she gets constantly asked about Pitt/Jolie in interviews too. If I were her, I would just say I'm not discussing this subject & then maybe it would stop. I will say that she was pretty funny on 30 Rock last week.

    Slopmaster - I appreciate the dedication, and the Cheetah story turned out to be a hoax. Sorry. Besides, you shouldn't be sending out pics of the local police chief's daughter if you plan to make it out of there alive. At least that's my opinion. Ha. Safety first.

     
  30. cats Says:
  31. why is everyone so upset that jen aniston finally said something negative about jolie? she should have added added something about brad pitt being a cheater.

    and i never watch oprah anymore. i read somewhere that women who watch oprah become depressed and i can understand why.

    and my word verification looks like a real word too... poectris

     
  32. Cats - I'm not mad at Aniston for saying something, but I just think that if you wait this long then it should be stronger/more powerful than 'uncool.' And poectris is a word, isn't it? Ha.
