James Franco‘s recent Comedy Central Roast was filled with gay jokes and quips. The actor took it all in stride and even told the Daily Beast that he wasn’t offended by all the gay jabs.
He shared, “If that’s what they were going to make fun of me for, I was like, ‘Great! Bring on the gay jokes!’ because these aren’t insults at all. I don’t even care if people think I’m gay, so it was like, ‘Awesome!’ I mean, I wish I was … I wish I was gay.”
Franco continued, “My relationship with my public image over the past four or five years has just become weirder and weirder, because I look at it and it’s me, and it’s not me, so if other people want to use that for their own purposes or needs, I’m fine with it.”
The media recently romantically linked Franco to his Spring Breakers co-star Ashley Benson, but he has since dismissed that rumor.
Strike a pose!
Boxer Wladimir Klitschko decided to pay homage to Arnold Schwarzenegger by posing in front of photo of the actor during his bodybuilding days. Apparently, the boxer has been trying to ‘catch up’ to Schwarzengegger’s physique since he was a young buck.
Schwarzenegger got wind of the photo and hit Klitschko with a photo (above) of his own.
Alongside the photo, Arnold wrote: “.
@Klitschko Great shot! It’s fantastic to see one of my favorite champions nailing my pose. Right back at you.”
The Terminator star is 66-years-old and doesn’t look half bad without his shirt on. And you gotta love a celebrity who actually pays attention to their Twitter followers.
Reese Witherspoon covers the latest issue of Red magazine.
In spite of her recent run-in with the police, Witherspoon is pushing forward. This issue of Red magazine was put together before her recent arrest, but the insight the actress gives is definitely something to take to heart.
On her life after having a baby:
“Ever since I had the baby, I can’t remember anything. Seriously this child stole my brain. I’m sure I’m losing friendships over forgetting to get back to people. But you can’t keep up with everything. I’ve got a 13-year-old, a nine-year-old and a baby. It’s like CNN ticker tape running through my mind at all times.”
On the importance of her girlfriends:
“Oh my gosh, I don’t know what I would have done so many times in my life if I hadn’t had my girlfriends. They have literally gotten me up out of bed, taken my clothes off, put me in the shower, dressed me, and said, ‘Hey, you can do this,’ put my high heels on and pushed me out the door! But you do have to work at friendships as much as you would any relationship. So, even when I’m really busy, we always manage to find each other on Saturday nights for a drink.”
On empowering other women:
“As women, we shrug and smile and say, ‘Oh… me?’ because it makes it socially acceptable for us to be successful. But there is a balance between being an arrogant jerk and being someone who is proud of their accomplishments. We need to let successful women show off and support them. Because men don’t spend anytime putting themselves down. They don’t waste their breath. You have to be the best version of yourself and, if that means you have to be a bit self-promoting, then it’s okay. It really is. Because who’s going to believe in you more than yourself? Other than, maybe, your mother.”
On being obsessed with Pinterest:
“My husband says, ‘Are you buying those things?’ and I’m like, “No, I’m just putting pictures of them on my electronic pinboard.’ Then I get to organize them: So this is my dream kitchen, these are my favorite hand bags, these are hotels I want to visit, jewelry I really need to by… I have a whole board of monogrammed accessories, I like to my name on everything.”
