Sure There Was A Presidential Debate Last Night But, In More Important News, Cameron Diaz Bent Over

By Joanna Robinson | Pajiba Love | October 4, 2012 | Comments ()


Have you guys seen the adorably teeny brand new dino that was "discovered" this week? John Hammond, get to cloning so I can take it on walkies. (io9)

Alec Baldwin has offered to cut his salary in order to ensure that this is not the last season of "30 Rock." a) That's not the move of a closer Alec. No coffee for you. b) Thankfully, Tina knows when to fold, walk away, run. (EW)

Devin Faraci, film critic and terrible boxer, wonders whether it takes some of the magic out of the movie making/movie watching experience when directors explain all the intricacies of their films. (Specifically regarding Rian Johnson's Looper.) Is our enjoyment higher when we know less? (Badass Digest)

Next time you fuss over a paper cut or some other office related injury, think about this young woman who was knocked down during a race, trampled by her fellow runners and who then got up and medaled. Bad. Ass. (Stanford Mag)

In similar lady power news, Cameron Diaz bent over for the November cover of Esquire. Um. Nice. Ass? One guess who the photographer is. (Star Pulse)

In further banned book linkage, here is the collected wit of authors who discovered their titles had been banned. Yeah Harper Lee is still my favorite. (Flavorwire)

"Entertainment Weekly" has released their annual "reunions" issue and while the "Arrested Development" photo is the clear winner, I'm curious to know how many times Henry Thomas has been forced to pose in a red hoodie. If I were him, I'd have a "no hoodie" rider in my contract. (WG)

You can watch all of "House Of Cards," the Netflix Original series from David Fincher and Kevin Spacey, all in one greedy glut. All 13 episodes will be released on February 1, 2013. (THR)

Here's the first image of Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly in the upcoming biopic about the actress/princess of Monaco. I'm sorry, this is Sparkling Diamond-level pretty. (TFE)

In my favorite mix of lurid nerdery, someone posted an ad on Craigslist for a Topless DM for their D&D game. C-cup is a must, no Man Boobs need apply. (Nerd Approved)

Whovians rejoice, you can now revisit your heartache with an e-book version of the novel that played a pivotal role in the season finale of "Doctor Who." Last page included. (Doctor Who TV)

The bad news: Salma Hayek believes the fashion industry promotes unhealthy boy-like bodies on women. The good news: Salma Hayek has obviously not been listening to the fashion industry. (Celebitchy)

"Call the Midwife" Review: Thank God For Contraceptives | Based on the Trailers Alone, Which of these 5 A-List Movies Would You Most Likely Watch?

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Viking

    I'm going to guess the photographer was Terry Richardson. Whether I am right about that or not, why does anyone with half a brain pose for him? Why does any magazine continue to offer him work? He has been outed as someone who takes advantage of his position in the industry to coerce naive teenagers into sex acts. He's not just a douchebag, he is worthy of a beat down with brick in a sock in my opinion.

  • mslewis

    It made me sad to see that pic of Cam Diaz. She's trying way too hard to seem sexy but it just looks contrived. Sexy would not be the word I would use for someone so skinny and muscular. It's a real shame she has to do photos like this. I guess turning 40 and having a shit-load of bombs on your recent resume can make a girl to do anything Ole Terry suggests.

  • ,

    No No No. You cannot make me like Cameron Diaz. No. Just no. Everybody stop trying goddamit! STOP IT THIS INSTANT!

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I just saw some commercials for "Smashed." And that commercial contains a quote from Amanda Mae..sure it's for, but it's like Pajiba reviewer have a certain cachet.

  • Oh, God, Christian. What happened to Christian? TONY CURTIS WOULD NOT APPROVE.

  • Irina

    Took me five full minutes to figure out who he was.

  • Even Stevens

    More importantly, does Stacey Dash ever age?!

  • kirbyjay

    Even more importantly, where is Paul Rudd? There is no Clueless without Paul Rudd

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Can we add upvoting to individual links on the Love? I'd upvote almost everything this week (except Celebitchy. I hate them, and Salma's spiel is a tired comment)

  • Sara_Tonin00

    (ok, I'd downvote the Cameron Diaz link too. But still a good percentage overall)

  • Jeremy Carrier

    Go home, Cameron Diaz.

  • Slash

    I actually am more interested in Cameron Diaz bending over. Not because I particularly care about her ass, but because anybody bending over is more interesting than the "debate."

  • Baba O'R'lyeh

    Great. Now I know what Cameron Diaz looks like when she's taking a shit. Thrice! High class photography!

  • I'm also surprised you left out the unsavory news about Richard Belzer and his comments/antics on Good Day New York

  • Carlito

    I really don't understand the "Terry Richardson's photography is disgusting, but I'm still going to use it as the banner pic to farm page views." Well, I do understand it, but that doesn't make any of it less skeevy.

  • frank247

    That isn't a still from Nicole Kidman's Grace Kelly biopic, that's just how much she can move after being botox-ed to oblivion.

  • damnitjanet

    Am I the only person who hates, detests and otherwise despises Cameron Diaz? Christ, you were cute in "The Mask" but now we know you can't act, so....stfu

  • THANK YOU! I was wondering when the hell Hollywood was going to stop trying to make her a thing.

  • Idle Primate

    i liked her in Feeling Minnesota and A Life Less Ordinary. but its been steeply downhill sense. mostly i find it tedious that she is held up as a sex symbol

  • zeke_the_pig

    I'm kinda there with you. Not so much on the hate level; I mean she's not a great actress, but not in the most egregious way. But with the fall from the cuteness level over 9000 that she was in the mask - tota-fuckin-ly agree. Never found her attractive since.

  • Mrcreosote

    I'm always amazed by Esquire's "Things Men Need" articles. I guarantee you the shoes are 350+ dollars, the coat is over 500 and the car you don't even want to know about. Even the watch, something that is really redundant in the age of cell phones will be no less than 150. It might as well be called "So you've decided to be a douchebag!"

  • ,

    As a subscriber, I just skip those articles and go straight to Stacy Grenrock Woods, Funny Joke From a Beautiful Woman* and What I've Learned.

    *--That's not my asterisk, that's theirs.

    **--Anyway, given their audience, that's not a whole lot different from the eternal "69 Sex Tips To Make Him Crazy" bannered on the front of every issue of Cosmo.

  • ,

    Oh yeah, a guy I work with described Esquire's tone as "liberal capitalist," and I thought that was about right.

  • celery

    I'm sure somebody else will say it if I don't: some women are totally healthy with "boy-like" bodies. Maybe if they had racks like Hayek's people would stop telling them to eat a sandwich, but I'm sure they'd appreciate it either way. What I guess she might have said to be more accurate would be "the fashion industry promotes unhealthy mentalities about food and body image".

  • KatSings

    Agreed. The big problem is trying to make women fit ANY standard, rather than just embracing the beautiful bodies and shapes that they have naturally. Beauty doesn't have a size.

  • Ohhh! Glad you didn't try saying that three days ago.

  • googergieger

    The worst news. We still have to listen to Hayek and her stroke voice in t.v. and movies.

  • L.O.V.E.

    Umm, you mean her accent?

  • googergieger

    Alright, I'm Mexican with a family that lives in most Latin countries. We all agree, that accent is horrible and her acting in Spanish flicks ain't much better.

    You friggin crackers and your white guilt taking away any sort of sense of humor you'd normally have.

  • Jezzer

    I love how "white guilt taking away our sense of humor" is your explanation to why your jokes bomb. Because obviously the problem here is "everyone else."

  • googergieger

    If you always get your ass handed to you in these things, why do you always come back? And days late no less? Go say something inoffensive and bland somewhere else, and pat yourself on the back for getting people to agree to your awesome "racism is bad" points and your Uncle Joey jokes.

  • Jezzer

    Bitch, please. I have yet to have "[my] ass handed to [me]" at any point by the likes of you. You're not some edgy, misunderstood comic genius. Your problem is that you are completely tone deaf when it comes to humor. You make flat statements that you retroactively define as joking. If you have to explain your jokes at every turn -- indeed, if you have to constantly explain that A Joke Has Taken Place Here -- something is going horribly wrong in the joke-telling process, and the problem is not the audience.


  • googergieger

    I don't have to explain my jokes. You explain my jokes and expect that to be an insult. I point out, repeating what I said isn't funny or clever and you run away and hope people won't notice how stupid you are for not getting the rather obvious. Tone deaf when it comes to humor? Uncle Joey jokes, squirt. I know you are but what am I, won't work here.

    Bitch please? TLDR? And you aren't even doing this in a misunderstood hipster irony either. You're just dumb. At least Larry The Cable Guy, understands why he is a thing. You're just dumb. Like, really, really, dumb.

  • Jezzer

    You don't have to explain your "jokes"? You just did. Up there. When you had to tell L.O.V.E, "What I said wasn't bigoted, it was an attempted joke, and here's why." And then it still wasn't funny after the explanation, because you are a mass of personality defects masquerading as a human being.

  • googergieger

    "Umm, you mean her accent?"

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    That's RACIST! We prefer "Honkies".

  • Idle Primate

    sometimes "porridge face" is cool too.

  • L.O.V.E.

    In that case, I'll allow it.
    But FYI, people in my immediate family have names like Jose, Francisco and Maria, so your cracker comment is misdirected.

  • googergieger

    Not really. White guilt(cracker is under that blanket) is no longer just for white people. Some time ago it became okay to actively not notice ones shit doesn't stink. It is horrible to make fun of Selma, but almost mandatory to make fun of Cameron Diaz up there.

    I don't know, maybe I just like to laugh TOO much. I don't speak or act out of ignorance and hate. When someone does, I believe we should ignore or condemn. However when it is out of jokes? Dunno, folks. Either it is all okay or none of it is. Either you enjoy christian comedy, which I imagine is 101 clean knock knock jokes, or you remember you like Louis C.K. who drops the N word, and the other F bomb in his act something fierce.

  • L.O.V.E.

    Hey, its no skin off my [ redacted for posterity ]. I was just asking for clarification as to whether you had something against Hispanic accents or HER accent. As its the later, no worries.

  • Worse news: while lovely, that is a heavily-photoshopped and slimmed down version of Salma Hayek's actual, delicious figure. Yes, I know that's standard for magazine covers. I still think it's a travesty. She's so beautiful naturally.

  • Idle Primate

    it does look like they shopped out some ribs

  • L.O.V.E.

    Certainly photoshop involved, but look at these recent premier pictures and there isn't much of a difference. Look at her compared to Blake Lively - 20 years her junior -- amazing.

  • lowercase_ryan


  • L.O.V.E.

    Salma Hayak: Now THAT is a FULL-BODIED woman. And I mean that in the most complimentary, x-rated way imaginable.

  • L.O.V.E.

    Cameron Diaz, on the other hand? She's about to fart, right?

  • Idle Primate

    CD is the opposite of a full-bodied woman. it's ironic that the actress with possibly the least junk in her trunk, the least lady bumps, always has attention drawn to that fact as though it was enticing. Salma hayek is right when she says boyishness is promoted as beauty/sex appeal.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    The only "boys" I've seen posing like that were in the Pride parade. Long & lean does not equal boyish.

  • Idle Primate

    i don't know, I associate angular bodies, very low body fat narrow hips and flat buttocks with men more than women, certainly with ideals of men. I know both sexes come in many shapes and sizes, I am commenting on what seems a peculiar choice as a female sex symbol. I am not making an uncommon observation, i.e. fashion models as paragons of beauty. and given that biologically, women tend to have a higher percentage of body fat, lean does in point of fact equal boyish. A man with narrow shoulders and wider hips might be describes as womanish. It communicates accurately.

  • TheOriginalMRod

    There's quite a bit of girl power going on here...

  • TheOriginalMRod

    In a good way damnit. The Stanford student that was trampled and finished 3rd. That is pretty awesome.

  • I think the most concerning part of that Craigslist ad is the use of quotation marks around "guys"...

  • nosio

    I thought the same thing.

  • Natallica

    Wow, Salma. She's like so full of LIFE! Busty, yummy, smoldering life! Cameron, on the other hand... methinks she's trying way too hard.

  • zeke_the_pig

    It's just... It's so... Jesus, Pajiba! Hendricks and Salma both in the same day? What the fuck're you trying to do to me? If you're trying to make me go sober by showing me this kinda stuff exists without beer goggles... I... I won't buckle! I REFUSE!

  • Natallica

    There's no need to go sober. If these women do exist without beer goggles, just imagine what would be actually LOOKING AT THEM WITH BEER GOGGLES! After four or five bottles, you would have Salma cooking you real, bona-fide mexican tacos in a corset and fishnets while Hendricks pours you a Jack Daniels and starts a conversation about the pros and cons of puppies and kittens

  • zeke_the_pig

    So YOU'RE the narrator of my dreams! I've been looking for you!

  • Natallica

    Yeah... sorry about that Eddie Murphy dream. I was experimenting on a gritty comeback, around a Tarantino-Travolta line. Didn't work out well, really. But, in paper, the idea of Murphy as a monk in the Dark Ages seemed SOOO good I had to do something about it
