Brad Pitt Covers "Vanity Fair" And, Forgive Me, But This Is Some Benjamin Buttons Sh*t

Last night on "The Daily Show" Jon Hamm boasted that after he was done with Linda Cardellini, Don Draper would be working his way through all the iconic TV beauties. Given that Rory Gilmore and Alex Mack are already off the table, who would you like to see fall into his clutches next? Topanga? (Vulture)

I love Charlie Pierce's piece on Jason Collins. He calls out "Sports Illustrated" for their headline "The Gay Athlete." The Gay? Yeah that sounded a bit like Margaret Cho's mom to me as well. (Grantland)

I'm guessing the person who wrote the headline "What If Disney Villains Were Beautiful?" is either blind or has never seen Maleficent, the hottest of all Disney ladies. The being said, this is not only a fun and silly art project but also raises the question of why our villains are so often ugly. Also, Ursula? Rowr. (Unreality)

There's a serious contender to play Daddy Warbucks opposite Quvenzhané Wallis in Annie. The good news? He can legit sing. (/Film)

Brad, buddy, I haven't seen this much vaseline on a lens since a White Diamonds commercial. Don't hide your wrinkles under soft focus, bud. You earned them. (Celebitchy)

If you're looking to fill in the gaps of your "Game Of Thrones" obsession between TK's Monday recap and our end of week coverage, may I suggest Neil Miller's excellent "Blog of Thrones"? Great stuff. (FSR)

Dustin has a round-up of what the cast of "Vikings" looks like all cleaned up. I still haven't watched a second of that show but, damn, this has to be one of the prettiest casts ever assembled. (Uproxx)

This "11 Spam Comments that Look like Drunk Thesauruses (And Why)" is right up your Pajiban alley. (Mental Floss)

For those of you who enjoyed this last week's episode of "Doctor Who" (I didn't), someone has tried mapping out the interior of the TARDIS. Deeply delightful geeky stuff. (The Mary Sue)

Pity the fool who loses his LIFE SAVINGS on a carnival game, and ends up with only a dreadlocked banana. (Videogum)

Speaking of delightful geeks, the Royal youngins, Harry Will and Kate, attended the opening of a new Warner Brothers studio. The dorky way in which they mucked around with Harry Potter wands might be enough to make you forget your hatred for the Royal Family. No? Ah well. (GFY)

Finally, a smidge-y bit of "WTF, Nature!" This is, I believe, some chandelier ice and it's gorgeous.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Every so often I'll be out drinking with some friends and one of them will say something on the order of 'You know what we should do? We should find a lesbian bar and check it out.They can't legally turn us away, you know.' I generally smack the idea down because that's just not right. Sometimes I take it as my cue to go home, because the night's only going to get stupider from there and I'm getting too old to spend the night in either jail or the ER.

  • mslewis

    I'm not understanding the comment about Brad Pitt. The man has plenty of wrinkles and they look damn good on him. Are you not seeing his forehead? His right cheek? Under his eyes? Or is that your jealousy speaking? The man is almost 50 and still pretty.

  • Jo 'Mama' Besser

    But Ursula is Divine, literally. You can't improve on that!

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Um...Brad Pitt doesn't look excessively prettified to me in those photos, not even the cover.

  • "What if Disney Villains Were Beautiful Skinny"

    Fixed it.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    don't forget de-ethnicized.

    (now, we can talk about the fact that most of the heroes are de-ethnicized another time)

    (pps: am I the only one creeped out that half of them look like they are supposed to be on Harlequin Romance covers?)

  • Jo 'Mama' Besser

    They could call it Frenzy Sheik Rally. That's what Harlequin likes,right? That's the ticket, right?

  • Melissa

    Fun fact! I grew up on that lake, and it is much prettier in the winter without the algae and lilypads.

    That is all.

  • BWeaves

    There is no cafe in the TARDIS. There's a food machine that dispenses snack like bars.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    I stopped watching Vikings for the time being, but Donal Logue? Holy Hell!

  • John W

    I don't hate the Royal family. I hate people who are obsessed with the Royal family.

  • Kris

    That's an awful lot of eyeliner on the "Vikings" cast. Does the show's producer have stock in Urban Decay?

  • $27019454

    Say whatever u will about Brad Pitt but wrinkles and all that is a fine fine fine man.

  • kirivinokur

    I thought Pitt was all about celebrating wrinkles? (See the W cover.)

    And, ahem, I believe that's a narrow depth of field (from using a telephoto lens and/or a large aperture) rather than vaseline that's causing the blur.

  • Scully

    "Also, Ursula? Rowr." Damn right.

  • JJ

    It's almost as if animated characters were meant to be caricatures of real people.

  • Anna von Beav

    Awww, remember when Travis Fimmel was Tarzan for, like, 5 minutes on The WB?

  • PDamian

    Oh, geez ... someone pretty-fied Claude Frollo from Hunchback of Notre Dame. Years ago, I knew someone who was seriously into Frollo, and was active on all sorts of websites and forums about him and his alleged sexiness, with lots of fanfics and fan art about him and Esmeralda, him and Clopin, him and the gargoyles (don't ask) ... Urgh. Whatever floats your boat, I guess.

  • How the hell do you get all hot and bothered over a cartoon character? That's just weird.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    ew. And ew.

  • PaddyDog

    What I'll never understand on Vikings is why Ragnar's wife (who has already demonstrated that she is totally up for a threesome with two guys) keeps repelling Rollo's advances, because HAS SHE EVEN SEEN THE MAN?

    Over here, Rollo. I'll make you forget all about that blonde axe wielder.

  • logan

    It's her brother in law! That's like incest. Sort of. Only the Alabama vikings do that.

  • Bodhi

    Vikings is a super sexy show. I

  • PerpetualIntern

    The only thing I don't like about the Ursula "upgrade" is that they skinnified her. She looooves her voluptuous body and knows how to work it, don't take that away from her!

    "Don Draper would be working his way through all the iconic TV beauties"

    Only TV? I want Phoebe Cates! But Danica McKellar would do in pinch.

  • kirivinokur

    Phoebe Cates was a movie beauty rather than a TV beauty.

    So, in her place, he should pick Mireille from "French in Action".
