Carla Gugino's Steamy ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Needs Cooling Off

By Agent Bedhead | Pajiba Love | August 27, 2014 | Comments ()


The lovely and amazing Paula Patton has resurfaced in the public eye after six months of washing off Robin Thicke’s douche scent. (NYDN)

Miley Cyrus criticizes the media’s focus on the criminal history of her homeless VMA date, Jesse Helt. She’s correct. The media is completely ignoring the plight homeless people and focusing on the mildly salacious details of this young man’s past. (CB) Just FYI: Miley raised $200,000 in one day after letting Jesse take over her VMA speech. (HuffPo)

These new photos from the final season of Sons of Anarchy are unsettling & appropriately so. (EW)

Once again, Justin Bieber was barely held back by his paid security when he tried to crush someone’s personal property. So he won’t be charged with whatever applicable crime. Surprise. (DL)

I thoroughly enjoyed Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan’s ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. It was tinged with sarcasm, but it was still a cute vid. (TMS)

The so-called directors of Captain America 3 are talking about Hawkeye appearing in a Black Widow-esque role. They strategically make no mention of Winter Soldier. LIES. All lies. (Slashfilm)

Everyone’s talking about Michael Keaton being a lock for an Oscar nom in Birdman. Ahead of tonight’s Venice premiere, here are some snaps from the film’s photocall. (Lainey)

The dark side of die-hard fandom isn’t exactly comparable to Dave Chappelle’s remarks about Native Americans. Instead, this is a discussion of why people pay to hate-watch movies. (Unreality)

Apparently, Natasha Lyonne and Fred Armisen are dating. Really? She’s fantastic. He’s a tool. But they both have plenty of baggage. (Us)

History’s most amazing lie isn’t what the Devil said in The Usual Suspects. (MF)

Praise Yeezus, I am burnt out on fashion after the Emmys & VMAs. There’s still room to talk about Allison Janney’s bizarre crushed velvet number. (GFY)

Do “real nerds” hate The Big Bang Theory? If they don’t, they probably should for many reasons. Starting with Chuck Lorre and ending with the show’s intended audience: The Average Television Viewer. (Uproxx)

Shakespeare + Monsters + D*ck Jokes = Christopher Moore. That’s the kind of equation Pajibans like to compute! See how KimMiE” came up with this formula in her review of The Serpent of Venice. (Cannonball Read 6)

This ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is one of the steamiest yet. Carla Gugino made out with Malin Akerman. Carla could make out with anyone, and it would be hot. No more words.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • What on earth did Fred Armisen do to deserve being called a tool?

  • Aaron Schulz

    have that face, thats my guess anyway

  • If that's all it takes, I'm screwed.

  • Hot theory that the smart guy next to me at work posited last week:

    No mention of The Winter Soldier in Cap 3 because by that time The Winter Soldier will be Cap (or learning the ropes as Cap in that film).

  • jthomas666

    All this rage against TBBT is a little silly. Let's look at two other Chuck Lorre shows:

    Dharma & Greg -- Opposites attract. Stuffy lawyer with free spirit smoking hot blond

    2 1/2 men -- Opposite brothers . Stuffy uptight brother and wild child who dates a lot of smoking hot blonds.

    TBBT -- Opposites attract

    Are we sensing a theme here? Lorre just goes "Let me think of opposites I can put together and call it a show!"

    In the case of BBT, it was nerds and a smoking hot blond. And thanks to 2 1/2 Men Lorre will burn in hell for all eternity.

    Also, I am DEEPLY disappointed that Carla and Malin didn't record their challenge in super slo-mo. The internet would have melted.

  • APOCooter

    There are many very real criticisms to make about The Big Bang Theory (and I say this as someone who has seen every episode [pre-emptive 'fuck you']), but how is this "TBBT fans can't be real nerds" thing any different from "girls can't be real nerds?"

  • Fall07

    My boyfriend is a PhD physicist (and I'm also a PhD scientist)... I think the show is really funny. I feel like I know many of those characters. Just because the author doesn't get some of the jokes (i.e. the one that caused the break-up... that's actually a huge debate in physics and the two schools of thought really don't like each other) doesn't mean they aren't specific to scientists. To be fair... my boyfriend doesn't like the show overall... although he thinks the ones where they argue about the science are funny.

    Damn your too smart to be on this site.

  • logan

    Yeah this "real nerd" crap is pissing me off.
    I own a 20 sided die, been called a Dungeon master, been to a Star Trek convention, seen every Star Trek movie at the theater opening weekend if not opening night, built model rockets, model airplanes, knew the Pac Man pattern, grew up to be an engineer, and at the age of 51 still buy comic books not graphic novels.
    So I think I got my nerd credentials in order and I like BBT just fine.

  • DenG

    Good dog, I'm an ATV, average to the bone. If I like a TV program (or film or book) I'll participate. Multiple times even.

  • BWeaves

    Wow! History's most amazing lie. Why isn't this a real movie?

    Anyone else see Pedro Pascal as the hot, lying Spaniard with the panty melting accent as the double agent spy?

  • foolsage

    That has a lot of potential for film treatment, surely.

  • Joseph Finn

    Has Carla Gugino *seen* the second Zack Snyder movie she was in? At this point, I'm surprised she doesn't have a 50-mile restraining order against him.

  • manting

    while she is very talented its not like a ton of directors are begging to cast her.

  • Mrs. Julien


  • Joseph Finn

    Which is just weird.

  • Wasn't that "Big Bang Theory" article in yesterday's PLove? And when I click the Slashfilm link, it's not an article about Cap America 3 but about Marvel's Netflix shows. Am I having a stroke?

  • Agent Bedhead

    My fault. I'm completely ill & trying to power through all my various articles in various places today. I'll fix the Cap 3 link. Can't change the title of the post now though. Would break comments.

  • Feel better soon!

  • Agent Bedhead

    Thanks. I'm working on it.

  • MichaelAndTheArgonauts

    Both Silk Spectres smooching? Schwing!

  • underscoreBlake

    Mother / Daughter Action? Schwing no...

    I've got something for you.

    Also, for those who are tired of the ice buckets, please don't be:
    As of this morning, the ALS Association has announced that Ice Bucket donations have reached 88.5 Million dollars!

    Keep'em dumping!

  • Mrs. Julien

    I thank you.

  • MichaelAndTheArgonauts

    Lol. That wasn't the direction I was going but you're absolutely right.

  • manting

    nice catch.
