"Black Swan" Sexuality: Mila Kunis Wouldn't Let Her Dad Watch Her Sex Scene . . . and Natalie Portman Says Shooting a Self-Love Scene Was "Disgusting":

The ballet thriller "Black Swan" comes out Friday . . . and it seems like all the hype is centered around the movie's sexuality. Especially a love scene between NATALIE PORTMAN and MILA KUNIS. --Mila let her dad see the movie . . . but NOT that particular scene. She says, quote, "My dad walked away in the middle of the film. I asked him to. I don't think any dad should see. It's just not necessary." --"He was like, 'I don't think I should see the movie.' I was like, 'See the movie. [but] there's going to be a point; get up and leave.'"
(--Here's video of Mila discussing the sex in the movie . . .)
--Meanwhile, Natalie has a pretty vigorous SELF-LOVE SCENE . . . and filming it was so intense it left a serious impression. --She says, quote, "So disgusting. It was akin to the experience of watching the movie with my parents sitting next to me." (--Here's video from her interview . . .)

Taylor Lautner Has Met Lily Collins' Dad:

It looks like TAYLOR LAUTNER and LILY COLLINS are taking things to the next level. "Marie Claire" magazine says Taylor has met Lily's dad . . . who is, of course, PHIL COLLINS. --A so-called "source" says Phil was, quote, "impressed" with Taylor. For the record, Taylor is three years younger than Lily. He'll be 19 in February.

Chad Ochocinco Is Engaged to Evelyn Lozada from "Basketball Wives":

Cincinnati Bengals receiver CHAD OCHOCINCO is engaged to EVELYN LOZADA, from the VH1 series "Basketball Wives". --Lozada was previously engaged to NBA star ANTOINE WALKER . . . which is how she got on the show. (--Walker last played with a team in Puerto Rico, but he's trying to make an NBA comeback.) --On RYAN SEACREST'S radio show yesterday, Ochocinco said, quote, "I think I've found everything I've been looking for in one person. She's everything I've been missing. --"Enough is enough. I'm 32, you know, my days are over." (--Evelyn is 34. She and Chad have only been dating for about four months.)

Jim Carrey Says Ewan McGregor is a Great Kisser:

"I Love You Phillip Morris" finally comes out this Friday. That's the movie that stars JIM CARREY and EWAN MCGREGOR as two men who fall in love in prison. --And here's what you need to know about it: Ewan is a GREAT KISSER. (!!!) Carrey says, quote, "I mean, look at the guy. I have to say, he is a great kisser." --Apparently, it wasn't hard for Jim to make out with another dude . . . quote, "As Ewan said, 'When you're kissing another guy it can get a little prickly.' --"Actually, you had to put out of your mind your own sexual preference and just try to understand that you were loving another person who just happens to be a guy. It wasn't about male or female, love is love." Says Kim Kardashian Was the Most Searched-For Celebrity of 2010 . . . But AOL Says It Was Tiger Woods: says that KIM KARDASHIAN was the most searched-for celebrity of 2010. Actually, her name was the most searched-for term, period. Here's their list . . .

5.) Barack Obama

6.) Hairstyles

Police Arrested Uma Thurman's Stalker . . . While He Was Googling Uma Thurman:

There's a guy in Maryland named Jack Jordan who loves UMA THURMAN way too much. He was arrested in 2008 for stalking her, and was ordered to leave her alone. He didn't. --Jack violated his restraining order by calling Uma's office and cell phone. So the cops decided to haul him in. But when they got to Jack's house to arrest him, they found him on his computer, GOOGLING "UMA THURMAN". (---By the way . . . if you just Google "Uma" without the "Thurman", the first thing that comes up is the official site for the University of Maine at Augusta. You didn't need to know that, but now you do anyway.)

Michael Douglas Is Thinking About Working Again:

MICHAEL DOUGLAS seems to be doing great in his battle with throat cancer. He says, quote, "I feel stronger every day. But it's a long road back." --Meanwhile, he's gearing up to star in the LIBERACE biopic . . . which is going to start shooting in the spring. He says, quote, "Everything shows me he was a lovely man. I just want to reconfirm that."

Tiger Woods Is Answering People's Questions on Twitter:

TIGER WOODS made good use of his Twitter account yesterday, answering questions from his fans. Nothing serious, of course. There was no mention of his sex scandal or his divorce. --But we did learn some interesting things about him. --His favorite movie is "Caddyshack" . . . which isn't that much of a surprise. --His favorite sports teams are the Raiders, the Lakers and the Dodgers. --If he could play a sport other than golf, it would be basketball. --He's deficient in the facial hair department, and can barely even grow a goatee. --What he wants for Christmas is Stanford in the national championship game . . . and he'd like Texas Christian to play them. (--Tiger went to Stanford.)
(--Maybe Tiger will answer YOUR question someday. Here's where you can follow him . . .)

Leslie Nielsen's Last Movie Is In Limbo . . . But You Can Help It Get Released:

The last thing LESLIE NIELSEN did as an actor was to lay down a voice track for the lead character in an animated flick called "The Waterman Movie". --Unfortunately, the writer and director . . . one Bryan Waterman . . . can't raise the funds to finish doing the animation. So we don't know if the movie will ever be released. --But he's hoping that Leslie's death might inspire some fans to DONATE money to help him complete the movie. And he swears he's not trying to take advantage of the tragedy. --He says, quote, "We have tried everything from funding the project out of our own pockets, accepting personal donations, and even heading up a full-blown campaign to raise money, but unfortunately we are still struggling to reach our goal. --"I must stress that I have no hidden agenda to profit off of this tragedy, but to give Leslie the opportunity to make us laugh one last time." (--Waterman put together a short video to show people what the movie's about. You can check it out here . . .)
(--And there's also a website where you can donate to the cause . . . and get a "special thanks" in the movie's credits. Check it out . . .)

Johnny Depp Says Disney Was Afraid His Jack Sparrow Character from "Pirates of the Caribbean" Was Gay:

When JOHNNY DEPP started shooting the first "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie, Disney was a little bit alarmed by his interpretation of Captain Jack Sparrow . . . because they thought he was making him GAY. --In the new issue of "Vanity Fair", Johnny says, quote, "I think it was Michael Eisner, the head of Disney at the time, who was quoted as saying, 'He's ruining the movie.' --"It was that extreme . . . memos, and paper trails, and madness, and phone calls, and agents, and lawyers, and people screaming, and me getting phone calls direct from, you know, upper-echelon Disney-ites, going, 'What's wrong with him? --"'Is he, you know, like some kind of weird simpleton? Is he drunk? By the way, is he gay?'" --Instead of saying something that would put anyone's mind at ease, Johnny actually stoked the fire. --He says, quote, "I actually told this woman who was the Disney-ite that called me about all that stuff, and asked me the questions, I said to her, 'But didn't you know that all my characters are gay?' Which really made her nervous."

Firefighters Discovered a Bloody Murder Scene at a Hotel . . . But It Turned Out to Be a Set Used for a Corey Haim Movie:

A few weeks ago, fire struck the George Washington Hotel in Pittsburgh. Firefighters who responded to the call discovered one room in which a bloody murder had apparently taken place. --The firemen found blood all over the walls . . . and even a piece of scalp. --The cops were called, and the scene was so intense that Police Chief J.R. Blyth called it the most grisly murder scene he'd witnessed in his 35 years in law enforcement. --But it WASN'T REAL. After police spent hours investigating, they discovered that it was a leftover set from a horror movie called "New Terminal Hotel", starring COREY HAIM. --Hotel owner Kyrk Pyros says he left the room as-is after the crew left, just in case they had to come back for reshoots.

Susan Boyle Gave a Disastrous Live Performance on "The View":

SUSAN BOYLE created a career out of performing on TV . . . but her rendition of "O Holy Night" on "The View" yesterday was NOT one for the highlight reel. She choked . . . literally. --Susan's voice became raspy halfway through the song. She coughed, cleared her throat, backed away from the mic, and asked the producers for a re-do. The problem was, it was a LIVE broadcast. --The music eventually stopped . . . and WHOOPI GOLDBERG and SHERRI SHEPHERD ran up to the stage to bail her out. --Sherri said, quote, "Oh, my God. Beautiful." --After Susan muttered that she had a "frog in her throat," Sherri went on, quote, "Oh, my God . . . Susan . . . that was amazing. There's something of an angel that comes out when you open your mouth. It's this amazingly pure sound." (--You can watch Susan flubbing her "View" performance, here. Also note how Whoopi seems to have trouble getting to Susan through all the stage smoke.) --Susan did get a second shot at it though. The performance was re-recorded for the West Coast feed . . . and Susan delivered. (--And that's the version that "The View" posted on their website. You can watch Take Two, here.)

"Dancing with the Stars" Is Interested in Booking Lindsay Lohan: claims the producers of "Dancing with the Stars" are trying to land LINDSAY LOHAN for next season. --A so-called "source" says, quote, "The producers were concerned about her erratic behavior, but they are taking another look at asking her to come on for the next season because she is doing so well at her sober living facility." --As usual, a rep for the show refused to comment on future casting. (--This isn't anything to take seriously yet . . . although, if Lindsay was interested, the door would surely be open. I don't buy that the show was "concerned about her erratic behavior." That kind of stuff makes great TV.)

The "Dancing with the Stars" Finale Won the Week in the Ratings:

The season finale of "Dancing with the Stars" was last week's top show. 24.2 million people tuned in to see Jennifer Grey rob the extremely "deserving" Bristol Palin of her victory. The rest of the top five was rounded out by "Sunday Night Football" and both versions of "NCIS".

How Does Justin Bieber React When His Bodyguards Are Man-Handling the Paparazzi? With a "Primal Scream," of Course:

JUSTIN BIEBER'S bodyguards had to get a little physical with a photographer in New York City last Friday night . . . and now the guy is whining about how he was treated by Justin's entourage. --The details were pretty typical and uninteresting . . . with one notable exception: --The guy says that once Justin got into the car that was waiting for him . . . while HE was being man-handled by Justin's bodyguard . . . Justin reacted to the situation in a VERY bizarre way. --He says, quote, "He put his mouth to the glass and let out a roar, like a primal scream, with his mouth wide open . . . it was so odd." -The photographer's not filing a lawsuit or anything . . . at least not yet . . . he just wants to make a point about the poor treatment of the paparazzi or something.

He says, quote, "It's already in motion . . . it's gonna be a healing process for all of us. Slipknot is not going anywhere. We're a family, and losing a family member sucks. --"You can't help that, but you need to move on, and I think that what we're gonna do might be the most powerful thing that we've ever created." --He also says that Slipknot will not permanently replace Paul . . . although they will pick up a touring bassist when they're ready to hit the road.

And Now, Three New Things To Worry About This Christmas:

#1.) Putting Up Christmas Lights Could Kill You. There's already been one death this season from Christmas lights. On Sunday, a 59-year-old man in Cherry Hill, New Jersey died putting up lights when he fell off a ladder. --Every year nationwide, there are more than 10,000 injuries and approximately four deaths from Christmas light accidents and fires. (CBS Philadelphia)

#2.) Getting Your Decorations Out Of the Attic Could Kill You. According to reports, there are still tens of millions of homes in the U.S. that have asbestos or insulation containing other forms of asbestos. --You could be exposed to that when you go up into the attic to get the decorations . . . so if you have an older home or you're not SURE that your insulation is asbestos-free, it could be worth your while to have it tested. (AOL News)

#3.) Your Kids Might Try To Get High Off Of Your Nutmeg . . . And It Could Kill Them. It feels like it's been hours since we heard about kids trying to get high off a regular household product, so here you go. --According to media hype, kids are getting high off NUTMEG. The high lasts for a few hours and nutmeg is easy to get, so kids are apparently gravitating toward it. --But snorting a tablespoon can have serious health effects . . . from minor things like nausea and dizziness all the way up to serious issues like convulsions, heart palpitations, or even DEATH. (CBS Atlanta)

Texas Leads the U.S. In Fatal Crashes Between Cars and Animals:

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety just released the data for road fatalities in the U.S. involving cars, motorcycles, and other vehicles hitting ANIMALS. --Overall, between 2005 and 2009, 1,017 people were killed in crashes with animals. (--There aren't any numbers on how many animals have died, but based on the amount of roadkill I see, it's MUCH higher.) --In a state-by-state breakdown, TEXAS has the most fatal car-animal crashes, with 88. --The rest of the top five are Wisconsin with 57, Michigan with 53, Ohio with 49, and Pennsylvania with 48. --Connecticut, Hawaii and Rhode Island tied for the fewest, with only TWO fatal car-animal crashes in the past five years. Delaware only had three, Massachusetts only had four, and Nevada only had five. --Across all 50 states, 60% of the people who died in car crashes with animals weren't wearing seatbelts. And 65% of the people who died in a motorcycle crash with an animal weren't wearing helmets. --About three out of four fatal collisions happened when a car hit a deer. Only one of the 1,017 happened in a collision with a BEAR. (USA Today)

A Man Avoids a DUI Conviction By Convincing a Jury He Only Started Drinking *After* He Crashed . . . To Stay Warm:

Back on February 6th, Thomas Drummond of Jackson, Missouri was driving on an icy road . . . missed a turn . . . and crashed. It was 32 degrees outside . . . and it took rescue crews more than two hours to track him down and rescue him. --After they finally dug him out, Thomas took a breathalyzer and blew a 0.148 . . . almost double the legal limit. So he was arrested for DUI. --But last week when he was on trial, he offered up this defense: He wasn't drunk when he crashed . . . he started drinking AFTER he crashed, to stay WARM. --Thomas told the jury that after he crashed, he knew it would take a while before he'd be rescued. He happened to have a bottle of brandy in the car, so he started chugging some down to warm himself up in the freezing weather. --And he said THAT was why his blood-alcohol level was so high almost three hours after his crash . . . he wasn't driving blind drunk beforehand, he got drunk afterward. --And the jury BELIEVED HIM. Thomas was found not guilty of driving while intoxicated. --He was facing up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine. (Southeast Missourian)

Would You Buy Chocolate Milk That's Actually 40-Proof Vodka?

Want to get your daily dose of calcium AND get hammered at the same time? --A new vodka-infused CHOCOLATE MILK is going on sale all over the country. It's called 'Adult Chocolate Milk,' and it was launched by two high school friends from southern California. --It's basically just chocolate milk premixed with 40-proof vodka. They're also planning to launch Adult Orange Cream, Adult Fruit Punch, and Adult Limeade. --It's already on sale in 17 states: Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Ohio, North Dakota, South Dakota, New Mexico, Nevada, California, Arizona, Georgia, Tennessee, Missouri, and Indiana. --So far, Adult Chocolate Milk has been flying under the radar enough that the owners haven't had to deal with the inevitable pressure about making an alcoholic beverage that will clearly attract young children. (Arizona Republic / Time)
(--You can find out more about Adult Chocolate Milk from their website, although it doesn't seem like they update it that often. For example, they only list three states where their product is available . . .)

Iran Freaked Out When They Discovered There's a Jewish Star Built Into the Roof of Their Airport:

Back before Iran had the 1979 Islamic Revolution and stopped getting along with the rest of the word, they hired a group of Israeli engineers to build the Mehrabad International Airport in Tehran, Iran. --That was over 30 years ago, but apparently no one ever looked at the roof. --Finally, someone checked out a satellite view of the airport on Google Maps and found that those engineers secretly built the Jewish symbol . . . the Star of David . . . into the ROOF of the airport. --Word got out to the media, then to Iran . . . and they FREAKED OUT. --The government has called for an immediate removal of the Jewish star from the roof of the building, so it will only live on in screenshots from Google Maps. (Jerusalem Post)
(--And here's a look on Google Maps, which should stay up until Iran removes the star AND new satellite photos are taken . . .),-95.677068&sspn=60.246331,66.269531&ie=UTF8&hq=airport&hnear=Tehran,+Iran&ll=35.696168,51.318984&spn=0.001917,0.003404&t=h&z=19

Amtrak Will Now Allow You To Bring Guns On Their Trains:

I guess this is ONE way to make people want to ride on trains again. As the airlines get more and more strict about what you can bring on your flight, Amtrak is dialing up the old Wild West spirit . . . and letting people bring GUNS on trains. --As of December 15th, you can bring your GUNS on vacation and business trips, thanks to Amtrak. Of course, there are some catches. --One, you have to be riding a train that checks baggage . . . no guns in your carry-on. Two, you have to inform Amtrak 24 hours before departure. Three, they have to be unloaded. And four, they have to be packed in special hard-sided containers. --Guns have been banned on Amtrak for almost a decade. Gun rights advocates have been pushing to get that ban removed . . . and Congress voted on it, revoked it, and ordered Amtrak to start allowing guns on board. (Modesto Bee)

Word of the Day: Refillibuster:

refillibuster (verb) /ree fill uh buhs turr/ - occurs at a restaurant when you wish to request a refill on your beverage, but other people at your table overload the server with so many requests that you never have the chance to ask. --Example: Server: "How is everything?" Friend Number One: "Can we get some more napkins and ketchup? And I asked for wheat toast, not white." Friend Number Two: "Can we also get Tabasco?" --Friend Number Three: "Ooh, and I need a knife." The server walks away. You: "Thanks for refillibustering me right out of another Diet Pepsi, everyone."
Two Women Were Busted For Shoplifting at TJ Maxx . . . By Stuffing $2,600 Worth of Clothes Under Their Chubby Rolls:

--Over the weekend, 28-year-old Ailene Brown and 37-year-old Shmeco Thomas of Edmond, Oklahoma were busted for shoplifting at a TJ Maxx . . . when they shoved $2,600 worth of clothes, shoes, and accessories under their CHUBBY ROLLS. --Security guards at the TJ Maxx caught Ailene and Shmeco with four pairs of boots, three pairs of jeans, a wallet, and gloves . . . all jammed under their breasts, their armpits, and between the "rolls of love" in their bellies. --The police came and arrested them for felony larceny. --Ailene also had a knife in her purse . . . she admitted to the cops that she had used it to cut security tags off the stuff they were trying to steal. (The Oklahoman)
(--You can see their mugshots in the news video here. Frankly they don't look THAT chubby, although these shots are only from the neck up . . .)

A Cashier at a Mexican Restaurant Stops a Robber By Hitting Him In the Head With Empanadas:

Let this be a lesson to anyone out there loco enough to try to rob a Mexican restaurant. They're not just going to lay back, take a siesta, and watch you rob them blind. -Last week, a man walked into Amigo's Mexican Restaurant in Deming, New Mexico and tried to grab the cash register. But the woman working as a cashier that afternoon wasn't having that. --So she grabbed the closest available item . . . which happened to be a bag of EMPANADAS . . . and THREW them at the robber. The empanadas hit him in the head, which stunned him . . . made him drop the cash register . . . and RUN. --Police are still looking for him. (Las Cruces Sun News)

#1.) A Little Kid Was Fascinated When He Found Porno Online:

There's a new video online that supposedly shows a little kid watching Internet pornography for the first time . . . and he's absolutely fascinated by it. --It doesn't show the computer screen, so you can't see what he's looking at, but his mouth is hanging wide open the whole time. (--Search for "kid sees dark side of the Internet for the first time." He notices everyone's watching at :37.)

#2.) The Band Gwar Pretended to Disembowel Sarah Palin on Stage:

Remember the band Gwar? They're the heavy metal band famous for wearing bizarre costumes and doing outrageous stuff at concerts. Beavis and Butthead were both big fans, if that helps. --Anyway, the band is still together and touring.

Three Reasons You Might Have the Winter Blues:

You might have heard of Seasonal Affective Disorder . . . or SAD . . . which causes some people to feel depressed during the winter months. But it's not very common and it only affects about 5% of the population. --So if you've suddenly been feeling depressed, here are three possible causes you should worry about first . . .

#1.) Obstructive Sleep Apnea. It happens when the soft tissue in the back of your throat collapses while you're sleeping, and it's most common in smokers and people who are overweight. --Sleep apnea messes with your sleep patterns and makes you feel tired and irritable during the day. So it's misdiagnosed as depression all the time.

#2.) Folate Deficiency. Folate is a type of B vitamin found in fruits and vegetables, and it helps your body produce chemicals like serotonin that make you feel happy. That's why it's so important to get enough of it.--Dark leafy vegetables are loaded with folate, and it's in oranges, strawberries, avocados and beans too. --But some experts think it's best to take folic acid supplements instead, which is the synthetic form of folate. The recommended daily dose is 400 milligrams, but if you've been feeling depressed, a lot of doctors suggest taking twice that.

#3.) Hypothyroidism. Your thyroid controls your metabolism, and if it doesn't produce enough hormones, you'll feel tired and depressed, and you'll probably start gaining weight . . . which can make you even MORE depressed. --Your doctor can diagnose it with a simple blood test, and taking one tiny pill a day can make a huge difference.
