Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    What. what. Hedgehogs. aaaaaaaaagh

    too cute.

    (I mean real hedgehogs, btw)

  • LL

    Holy crap, the space tweets are delightful.

  • googergieger

    "and two inches shy of a Statham."

    Poor Katie.


  • BlackRabbit

    Honestly, I thought Alan Ruck looked the best. Maybe it's the goatee.

  • I'm a little confused as to why there are no stars who are six feet tall or over. Did they just run out of room so the tall guys were SOL? A small sampling of the overlooked: Bruce Willis (6'), Daniel Day Lewis (6'1"), Will Smith (6'2"), Morgan Freeman (6'2"), Hugh Jackman (6'2"), etc. It's like they skewed that chart short on purpose. Also really, really white.

    Also, what were the parameters used to decide who was a star? Because that photo is full of folks I'm not sure qualify as "stars".

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I would never have thought DDL was that tall. I would've pegged him for one of the wee ones that just comes across as giant.

  • Mrs. Julien

    I'm still recovering from the fact that Javier Bardem is 5'7". Proportionally, can you imagine how much of that is noggin? 32% 46%?

  • BlackRabbit

    I really thought he was huge. Maybe because the trailers for NCFOM made him seem huge and menacing.

  • zeke_the_pig

    It is a huge head. Still not as huge as Philip Seymour Hoffman's though. That's a head to make the Easter Island guys shudder.

  • Mrs. Julien

    I get easily distracted by big noggins and feel the need to point them out. Mr. J. has largely discouraged this, but for someone like Bardem, I'm allowed to turn to him and say, "You have got to give me this one!".

  • zeke_the_pig

    I kid you not, an ex-girlfriend once reacted to a suggestion of mine with: 'Yeah, well, we COULD go and have a nice relaxing day at the park, but then if 'we' included 'you' it wouldn't be very relaxing at all as I know for a fact you'd spend the whole time pointing out people's weird heads.' We did go, and I did do that. Pfft. 'Ex'-girlfriend for a reason.

  • Mrs. Julien

    And Happy New Year, zeke.

  • zeke_the_pig

    Happy New Year to you too, Mrs J. Hope the transition was good and that the vast expanse ahead brings much... good...ness... Yeah, zeke eloquence comes with booze. We know that now.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Frankly, a general post-yule malaise has set in and I don't drink, so I can't even look forward to filling the void with bad decisions and online ramblings. Not drunk ones, anyway.

  • zeke_the_pig

    Well at the risk of oversharing on a public forum - I went through some horrid emotional trauma over the xmas/NYE period, the ramifications of which I'm still feeling now, and will feel for some time, so I send you some zeke empathy. It's a rare commodity. Enjoy it. Maybe pop it in a pan and stir up a nice dish with it.

  • Mrs. Julien

    //virtual hug//

  • Bert_McGurt

    Really? The only one there I'd have reservations about calling a "star" at this point is Josh Hutcherson. The rest of them are pretty legit stars. Even Danny and Emilio.

  • Mrcreosote

    Wait, WHERE DO I GET MY PUS!!! I need to know these...ohhhhhhhhh. Nevermind.

  • Oh, Adam Scott and his hair. They're the adorablest.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Just imagine him and Damien Lewis attempting to make out: Battle of the Tiny Goldfish Mouths!

  • Sara_Tonin00

    aww, and you won't even EE yourself for that. You should.

  • Mrs. Julien

    I'm not above such things.

  • .......

    I'll be in my boudoir.

  • BWeaves

    The astronaut tweets were adorable. Finally, a good reason to tweet. I also loved the red shirt comment at the end.

  • Blake

    Sorry Anthony Mackie won followed by Notle for most practical attire (it is a movie after all).

    Matt Smith's Doctor > Cumberbatch's Sherlock.

    Emma Stone looked good but not spectacular (the blond has to go).

  • Blake

    *Additional Felicia Day won 01/ 07/13 (as she does every day) with her appearance at CES.

  • lowercase_ryan

    If I click that link and see YOLO, so help me I will NEVER FORGIVE!

  • Pinky McLadybits

    BAT-BLASPHEMY! I giggled loudly at the hedgehog joke though. BUT I AM WATCHING YOU, jM!

  • jM

    Not me! I just posed a question, don't shoot the linker. And do you have to watch me in the shower? It's small enough already.

  • Pinky McLadybits

    Well, if you would just scooch to the side a fraction of an inch you could lather your hair without elbowing me. Dang.

    Dangerous thinking, asking questions about Batman. I'm going to hit the Independent Thought Alarm button I keep beside my laptop.

  • jM

    Fine. But don't interrupt my lady jams unless you're joining in.

  • mairimba

    I'm not even going to comment on Nolte's robe, cause, well, Nick Nolte, but 'dafuq' Sean Penn?! He looks like he hasn't showered in days AND drunk. Also, is it me or has Giovanni Ribisi aged really fast?

  • LL

    His youth has been promised to Tom Cruise. It's one of those tricky Scientology bylaws. It'll get Jenna Elfman one of these days.

  • jen

    yeah, sean penn looks greasy
