There was a time I used to watch and play tennis religiously. To say I was obsessed with the sport would be an understatement. I would alter my sleeping pattern in order to watch the Australian Open live. Hardcore, right. This summer, I made it a goal to hit the courts more often. So far, so good.
Men’s Journal must’ve sensed my rekindling love for the sport again. The publication showcases the ATP World Tour’s next generation in their latest issue. After checking their tennis editorial out, I definitely need to update my Favorite Male Active Tennis Players list from 2009.
Among the fresh faces highlighted in “Hit Squad” are Belgian player David Goffin (left) and Lithuanian upstart Ricardas Berankis (right). They’re joined in the spread by the Harrison brothers (Ryan and Christian), Grigor Dimitrov, Milos Raonic and Bernard Tomic. I’m sure they all have pretty impressive “backhands” ;) Game, set and match indeed. Check out the photos snapped by photographer Theo Wenner below.
In this week’s edition of celebrity real estate, I’m choosing one of my favorite actresses of all-time, Drew Barrymore. I just love this woman. The 38-year-old actress recently put her Montecito home on the market. If you recall, Barrymore wed her art consultant husband Will Kopelman at this location last summer in front of 190 people. The estate is out of the way from the buzz of Hollywood on a secluded 2 acres. A perfect place for a paparazzi-free ceremony.
The Never Been Kissed actress purchased this abode in 2010 for $5.7 million. She’s listed it for $7.5 million. Spanning over 6,000 square feet, it boasts 6 bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms. The two-storey classic was built in 1937 and has a separate guest apartment. A walking path winds through the abundant gardens, citrus and avocado trees and expansive lawn to create a one-of-a-kind setting. Check out Drew’s home below. It certainly has a few of the actress’ quirky touches. I.e. the colorful patterned living room couches.
Before you double check what date it is, it’s not April Fools Day. It does seem like a joke, doesn’t it? This actually is a legit thing. Nearly two years after Hanson announced they were getting in the beer game, the family act has finally made good on their word.
During the Hangover Part III premiere after party, Hanson performed. If you’re wondering why they were chosen to entertain the crowd, in the opening scene of the film, Zach Galifianakis is shown driving and grooving to the boys’ monster hit “MmmBop.”
In addition to providing some tunes, they unveiled their beer called Mmmhops brewed in their home state of Oklahoma. In the packaging label, they reference their 90s hit, “from the guys that invented MmmBop.” Cute. I hate to admit it, but I want to drink a bottle. What can I say, I’m a sucker for celebrity liquor. Skinnygirl margarita anyone?
Check out a photo below featuring the bottle in the company of Bud Light, Heineken and Budweiser to name a few. I’ve also included a photo of one of the Hansons posing with Hangover star Ed Helms. With bottles of Mmmhops in hand of course.
Russia sure does love their Hollywood actors, don’t they? Josh Duhamel gracing the cover of InSytle Magazine’s current issue isn’t the only thespian covering a Russian publication this month, Gerard Butler also gets into the action.
Appropriately enough, the 43-year-old actor channels his inner action star for a Russian GQ fashion editorial snapped by photographer Danil Golovkin.
Butler was most recently seen in the surprise hit Olympus Has Fallen. Originally projected to open with $7 million, the film earned $30.5 million in its opening weekend. Take that Butler haters ;) Check out his latest photo shoot below.
In the vein of So You Think You Can Dance and American Idol, Andrew Christian holds auditions of his own. The lucky ones to advance get a ticket to Las Vegas for the MATINÉE Festival over Memorial Day weekend. It’s four days of fun that includes eight parties, 20 DJs and lots of hot boys.
In charge of handing out the coveted tickets are Pandora Boxx, Davey Wavey, Todrick Hall and Andrew Christian himself. Watch them as they drool, manhandle and rate the sexy studs paraded in front of them. Note to future hopefuls: Flirt with Pandora. From the looks of it, she’s your best bet to advance. Also making appearances in the promo video are Drag Race alums Raja and Manila Luzon.
While it’s not as racy as their other videos, it does showcase a lot of jiggling bare booties and salacious behavior, ergo me saving it til Saturday to post the NSFW clip. Enjoy and if you’re in Vegas, have fun and be on the look out for the AC boys.
It’s a battle of the sequels this Memorial Day weekend at the box office. The Hangover Part III faces off against The Fast and The Furious 6. While these two films battle it out for your dollars, I thought it was only fitting that I pit the stars of the films in our latest Who’d You Rather poll.
Figuring out which two exactly proved to be a dilemma. Should I pit Vin Diesel against Justin Bartha, or Bradley Cooper against Tyrese Gibson? In the end, I decided to go with a Bradley Cooper and Paul Walker match-up. My rationale being that both of them were victors in their previous battles. Cooper edged out Bartha and Walker beat out his racing buddies. I’m curious to see which of these guys tops the other. In this battle, it’s anyone’s guess. In my fantasy, it’s Cooper who tops Walker ;) Check out the pics below and be sure to cast your vote afterward
There’s a new Governor in town and he means business. True Blood’s latest promo for Season 6 highlights new cast addition Arliss Howard as Governor Truman Burrell. In the clip, Governor Burrell declares war against vampires and urges human citizens to buy guns and wooden bullets to protect themselves. “When humans can no longer walk on these streets at night without fearing for their lives, then we have to take our streets back,” he stresses.
“He’s got short-range goals, long-range goals, and ulterior motives for every single of them… Even while he’s doing unimaginable things, he thinks he’s doing good. That’s what’s so scarry about Burrell.” – Brian Buckner, True Blood executive producer
In addition to Howard, Amelia Rose Blaire joins the cast as Willa Burrell, daughter of the Governor, who has a differing view on vampires. Should make Sunday dinners very awkward. Other new characters introduced in the coming season include super old faerie Niall Brigant (Rutger Hauer), vampire-rights activist Nicole Wright (Jurnee Smollett-Bell), and faerie Ben Flynn (Robert Kazinsky), who has a spark with Sookie. Check out the new promo below which features Governor Burrell’s speech mixed with scenes teasing the hunt for and torture on vampires.
It’s only fitting that a Greek god be front and center for Attitude magazine’s Summer Style edition. After all, who else could complement the majestic Mediterranean Sea than Georgios Parashos? His first name practically says it all… “gorgeous.” I’m sure that’s not how you pronounce it, but in my mind (and argument’s sake) it does ;)
Parashos shows of a selection of underwear for photographer Cameron McNee. The photo shoot and fashion film are in conjunction with British retailer Selfridges. I absolutely love that store. Check out Georgios channeling his inner seamen on a luxurious yacht below. God, I miss Greece.
