The Entertation Index: April 30
Hobbit, The – Though not due in theaters until mid-December, The Hobbit is already generating some controversy from director Peter Jackson’s decision to shoot the movie at 48 frames-per-second rather than the traditional 24. Some early viewers say the faster frame rate makes the film feel too lifelike. Folks, we’re talking hobbits, not a documentary. Until I see the final product, I’m going to trust the guy who brought the utterly fantastic Lord of the Rings trilogy to the screen.

Kutcher, Ashton – In addition to being Demi Moore’s ex and making zillions from crappy movies and Nikon commercials, Kutcher also happens to be the first person that super-hottie Mila Kunis ever kissed on-screen. This is further evidence that the universe is uncaring and possibly unjust.

Levine, Adam – Shortly after his split with Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Anne Vyalitsyna, Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine was the target of some “aggressive” flirting from Jennifer Love Hewitt. OK, that’s it. The universe is definitely unjust.

Lohan, Lindsay – The Mean Girls actress recently attended a White House Correspondents’ brunch with Susan Axelrod, chair of Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy. It is unclear if Lohan understands that epilepsy is different from “the shakes.”

Uggie – The Jack Russell terrier who melted audiences’ hearts in The Artist has a memoir coming out in October called Uggie: My Story. Sources say, though, that the book may be ghost-written.

Wanted, The – A new-ish band that sings some songs said that The Voice’s Christina Aguilera was a “total bitch” when she didn’t shower them with attention during their recent visit, in contrast to American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez, whom they simply gushed about: “Yeah, well J.Lo’s hot, Christina’s nothing special.” Watch for The Wanted’s rumored new single, “Sour Grapes.”
