This looks so ridiculous and that’s why it’s beyond brilliant. You’ll never eat a baby carrot, peel a potato or grill another sausage without feeling a little guilty ever again 😉

Sausage Party is the brainchild of Seth Rogen and spoofs Disney and Pixar films. The film screened a work-in-progress cut at South by Southwest Film Festival just last night and based on immediate reactions, Rogen has a hit on his hands.

Sausage Party Movie Synopsis

The film tells the story of one sausage setting out on a quest to discover the truth about his existence. After falling out of a shopping cart, our hero sausage and his new friends embark on a perilous journey through the supermarket to get back to their aisles before the Fourth of July sale.

Also lending their voices to the raunchy animated film are Kristen Wiig, Jonah Hill, Bill Hader, Michael Cera, James Franco, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Paul Rudd, Edward Norton and Salma Hayek. It’s set to arrive in theaters on August 12. Check out the red band trailer below.

The iconic publication announced in October it will no longer showcase naked women in their magazine, after 60+ years of doing so. Jenny McCarthy didn’t make it a secret that she wanted to grace the final cover. She wasn’t alone. Many also publicly expressed their interest in snagging the honor. Well, they’re all S.O.L. Playboy magazine has gone with one of their all-time favorites instead.

“I got a call from [Hugh Hefner’s] attorney who said, ‘We don’t want anybody else. There’s nobody else, could you do the last cover of Playboy?’” the former “Baywatch” star told ET.

Fittingly, Pamela Anderson is the covergirl for the final issue. Great choice!!! The 48-year-old actress has now scored the cover a record 13th time. It also marks her 15th Playboy pictorial to date. Before she committed to Hefner, she checked in with her teenage boys– Brandon (19) and Dylan (17).

“I said, ‘Hef just called, he wants me to do the last cover of Playboy,’ and he goes, ‘Mom you’ve got to do it,’” recalled Anderson. “‘We’re older, we’re not embarrassed anymore of you. You know, we think you’re great.’”

Anderson returned to the Playboy mansion for the momentous occasion. Famed photographer Ellen Von Unwerth helmed the shoot while James Franco conducted the accompanying interview. Check out the full cover below, along with a behind-the-scenes video of Pamela at the mansion.

What is it, 2007 all over again? That’s when Guitar Hero was all the rage, appearing everywhere including shows like Gossip Girl. Admittedly, I was on the bandwagon and was obsessed with the video game. I even used to have Guitar Hero parties. How lame looking back now 😉

Activision shut production on the once-popular game in 2010, but the brand is being resurrected this month. In a new commercial, Lenny Kravitz and James Franco take each other on in Guitar Hero Live coming October 20. Watch below, Franco trying to keep up with the “Are You Gonna Go My Way” singer on “Keep On Swinging,” by Rival Sons.

Queen of the Desert premiered at 65th Berlin International Film Festival. Kidman is surrounded by a bevy of gorgeous men in the film, including James Franco, Damian Lewis and Robert Pattinson who plays T.E. Lawrence aka Lawrence of Arabia. Check out the trailer below.

Anyone else starting to lose count on how many times James Franco has played a gay character on film? I have and I’m sure there are plenty more homosexual parts in his future.

It’s never my intention to push anyone to come out, but can he just get it over with already. We all know one day it’s going to happen 😉

For his latest role, the 37-year-old plays the estranged gay son of Robert Duvall’s character in the crime film, Wild Horses. The movie which premiered at South by Southwest was written and directed by Duvall and also stars his wife, Luciana.

Rounding out the cast are Josh Hartnett, Adriana Barraza and True Blood’s Jim Parrack. Wild Horses rides into select theaters and on VOD on June 5, 2015. Check out the trailer below.

Movie Synopsis

Texas Ranger Samantha Payne (Luciana Duvall) reopens a 15-year-old Missing Persons case, uncovering clues linking a local boy’s death to wealthy family man, Scott Briggs (Robert Duvall). Samantha will stop at nothing to discover the truth even if it means risking her own life.

With the unexpected return of his estranged son Ben (James Franco), Briggs must find a way to either silence the law for good, or come to terms with the relationship between Ben and the boy that he tried to conceal all those years ago.

If James Franco’s sexuality confused you before, this latest interview will have you scratching your head even more. The 36-year-old actor addresses his sexual orientation by having his straight persona interview his gay one for FourTwoNine magazine. In essence, Franco is ‘gay’ in his art, but ‘straight’ in his life.

“Straight” James asked himself, “Are you f–king gay or what?,” to which “gay” James replied, “Well, I like to think that I’m gay in my art and straight in my life. Although, I’m also gay in my life up to the point of intercourse, and then you could say I’m straight. So I guess it depends on how you define gay. If it means whom you have sex with, I guess I’m straight. In the twenties and thirties, they used to define homosexuality by how you acted and not by whom you slept with. Sailors would fuck guys all the time, but as long as they behaved in masculine ways, they weren’t considered gay.”

James has several films coming out in 2015, including three this Spring alone- True Story, Everything Will Be Fine and I Am Michael. I’m most looking forward to the latter where he plays a real life former gay activist who denounces homosexuality and becomes a Christian pastor.

Check out more riveting questions answered by Franco asked by himself below, along with photos snapped by Damon Baker.
