For those of you who haven't come across this fabulous specimen - you may recognise him from Lipstick Jungle, One Tree Hill, or even 'Privileged'. Anyway, who cares where he comes from, let's just enjoy the view...
IS JOHN STAMOS HOT OR NOT?
To be fair to the vote, here are some pics of him, through the ages. To be honest, he has aged well. Still not hot though!
Don't get me wrong, I think he looks kinda fun, especially when drunk with kerrieanne (see below), and I like the fact that he can make fun of himself, and I think it is funny to watch him in the 'Kokomo' video with the Beach Boys (see below), but I still don't think he is hot.
Vote people, let us know what you think, so that we can put this issue to bed!!

Lloyd Dobler: She's gone. She gave me a pen. I gave her my heart, she gave me a pen.
Lloyd, Diane has well and truly moved on!!! Turn the boombox off and pay attention!
Diane Court, or aka Ione Skye, gave birth to Ben Lee's baby, Goldie Priya Lee . Do you think this makes it a boy or girl?? Anyway, he posted this pic on his website.

I must say that compared to 'The Beautiful Life' the acting to brilliant, which is to say that it is fine. The cast is in fact very appealing and sassy but I think I personally have moved on from the drama and over the top storylines that characterise Melrose Place. It has the advantage of being a very slick production but I don't think I'll be worried if I miss an episode. I'm sure the 20 somethings will adore it and I hope it goes well if only for the sake of seeing Heather Locklear back where she belongs.

Taylor Lautner has said that one of his favorite movies is The Notebook. “I don’t think I should be embarrassed to admit it though - it’s a great movie,” he says. “I’m not embarrassed. I’m saying it proudly.”
I bet you're loving him now K! Nice to see the wolf is not only hot but romantic as well.
A still from the upcoming ALL GOOD THINGS with Kirsten Dunst. That blanket is looking mighty cosy on this hideous Melbourne day! (actually I don't think it's the blanket that looks cosy!!)

Next up on tonight's viewing is The Vampire Diaries - starring the delectable Ian Somerhalder. This is a bit of a mix between the teen love story of Twilight, the creepiness of True Blood, and the classic love triangle of all good shows. The leads are very likable and it is a lot creepier than I was expecting. I must say that I wish Ian was playing the good brother but even as the epitome of evil he is distractingly good to look at. Elena, at the center of this love triangle, is played by Nina Dobrev and she is a joy to watch.
The casting is great, the atmosphere reminiscent of 'Forks' and the unfolding of the romance is, of course, addictive. I think I would have to say I prefer the acting here to 'The Beautiful Life' but all in all a ripper night of viewing.
(By the way - keep your eye out for Katerina Graham who plays Elena's best friend Bonnie - she is gorgeous)(Oh, and she was in '17 Again' and you know I love a link to Zac!)
Airing in Australia - Monday 28th Sept 8.30 on Chanel GO (99)
It is as addictive as we thought it would be with Sara Paxton being the standout. It felt a little stilted to start with and I must say I found Mischa Barton and Elle McPherson distracting but by episode two they weren't quite so bad. In fact I think Elle will be OK as the head of the model agency once she warms up a bit.
It has all the ingredients for a great show - bitchy girls, hot guys, in fact bitchy guys too, a sweet girl with a secret, a farm boy with a heart of gold, fashion, money, fallen stars, secrets and lies etc etc. Good stuff, if they can improve the acting.
I'll be tuning in again to see if it improves.

You may also recognise Ian from roles in 'LOST' and 'Smallville'.
A face to watch I'm thinking!!

Just thought I might share a couple of photos of the lovely Alexander Skarsgard (so disappointed my computer won't do the fancy scandinavian circle thing over the a). J posted a little while back about this find in TRUE BLOOD, and well, I think he is improving with age!!! Here he is signing an autograph for a fan. Scandis rock!
I am crushing on Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore. I have been following them on twitter for quite a long time now, and was almost to the point of 'unfollow', as they tweet so much and are quite annoying, but the more I get into their twets, the more I realise they are using their powers for good and not evil. They seem to support so many causes and are really putting them out there to the people. Photos above are from the launch of the book HALF THE SKY. “Half the Sky” shares the idea that by empowering women, especially in undeveloped countries, it promotes growth and stability while answering many societal and economic problems.
And they are cute together, and really in love!
Today's tweet from Ashton
aplusk Happy anniversary @mrskutcher I'm not sure why we keep track of years in relation 2 an infinite love. But tradition wins 2day.about
7 hours ago from Tweetie
and then she tweets back
I LOVE YOU
See, sweet, alittle sickly, but none the less, sweet!!
This will be an interesting film! A SINGLE MAN is the directorial debut of Tom Ford, who also adapted the screenplay from a 1964 novel of the same name, said to be "one of the first and best novels of the modern gay liberation movement." And if the name Tom Ford is ringing any bells, its no surprise, he is the man who turned GUCCI around almost singlehandedly in the 90's. So you just know that this film will be stylish.
Firth plays an English novelist, teaching literature at a Los Angeles college in 1962 and grieving—delicately, obsessively, heroically—for his lover of 16 years, dead in a car crash. Seeing no reason for his life to go on, George meticulously rehearses his own suicide, by gunshot, but has trouble finding a practical or aesthetically elegant way to carry it off. So over the course of a long day, he listens idly to his colleagues' worries over the Cuban missile crisis; has dinner with his oldest friend, a London socialite (Julianne Moore, never more glamorous); and indulges some erotic flattery from one of his students (Nicholas Hoult). All these are distractions as George prepares for death in the manner of a samurai or Roman Senator, and bathes in memories of his precious Jim (Matthew Goode)
Nicholas Hoult is the 'About a boy' kid, and more recently seen in 'Skins' and Matthew Goode (seen pictured with Colin in the photo above) was the lovely creature who fell in love with the first daughter (mandy Moore) in CHASING LIBERTY. (anyone? I so know J will know it!!)
Anyway, I think this film looks fascinating and is receiving quite alot of attention while doing the rounds of the film festivals. There is even some Oscar whisper for Colin.
Here's the trailer, judge for yourselves......
PS Gosling link - Charlyne just tweeted yesterday trying to get her hands on some DEAD MAN BONES tix!!!!
Charlyne Yi does not believe in love. Or so she says. Well, at the very least, she doesn’t believe in fairy-tale love or the Hollywood mythology of love, and her own experiences have turned her into yet another modern-day skeptic. PAPER HEART follows Charlyne as she embarks on a quest across America to make a documentary about the one subject she doesn’t fully understand. As she and her good friend (and director) Nicholas search for answers and advice about love, Charlyne talks with friends and strangers, scientists, bikers, romance novelists, and children. They each offer diverse views on modern romance, as well as various answers to the age-old question: does true love really exist? Then, shortly after filming begins, Charlyne meets a boy after her own heart: Michael Cera. As their relationship develops on camera, her pursuit to discover the nature of love takes on a fresh new urgency. Charlyne risks losing the person she finds closest to her heart. Combining elements of documentary and traditional storytelling, reality and fantasy, PAPER HEART brings a fresh perspective to the modern romance and redefines the classic love story.
