The Entertation Index: April 25

April 25, 2013

Affleck, Ben — Actor and Argo director Ben Affleck has attached himself to the Global Poverty Project’s “Live Below the Line” campaign wherein he will eat for less than $1.50 for five days straight. Affleck’s people commented on his commitment to the cause, reportedly stating that Affleck “wants to show the world how difficult it is to be hungry in the roughly five days before Hollywood producers realize a person is incredibly handsome and yank him off the streets and put him in movies.”

Bay, Michael — The internet went wild this week after word that action film director Michael Bay “apologized” for 1998’s Armageddon appeared in the Miami Herald. Alas, it was allegedly not true; Bay took to his own site on Tuesday claiming he was misquoted by the Herald reporter and that  “I’m not in the slightest going to apologize for the third movie in my movie career.” He allegedly went on to admit that “I’m only sorry for two things in this world: that I didn’t get to sleep with Megan Fox before she met Brian Austin Green, and that Transformers: Dark of the Moon didn’t have more explosions. Period.”

Kimmel, Jimmy — For your Thursday fun: Jimmy Kimmel recently aired a production piece on Jimmy Kimmel Live in which he asked Coachella-going hipsters what they thought of bands which didn’t exist, like “The Obesity Epidemic” and “Regis and the Philbins.” Just enjoy.

Lewis, Huey — Sentencing is about to begin in the trial of a northern California woman stole Huey Lewis’ rented Toyota Corolla in Feburary as Lewis left it idling. The woman led police on a high speed chase until the Corolla hit 88 miles per hour and disappeared, forcing the woman to harness enough lightning forty years ago to power the Corolla and return to 2013, where police were waiting on her. I’ll admit I went an awfully long way for that joke. Sorry.

Paltrow, Gwyneth — You can stop campaigning now, all other ladies on the planet Earth: The current issue of People magazine bears the headline that actress Gwyneth Paltrow has been named the “World’s Most Beautiful Woman.” Inside the issue, Paltrow tells People that when she first heard the news she “honestly someone was playing a joke on me.” Nope, Gwyneth. No joke. You are beautiful. But the joke is that anyone thinks what’s printed in People actually means anything.

Beep boop boop beep boop.

Beep boop boop beep boop. — Black Eyed Peas frontman and notable producer has admitted to borrowing a beat for his new single “Let’s Go” without first receiving permission from producer Arty (you all know Arty, right?). No word yet, however, on whether and the rest of the Black Eyed Peas plan to admit to borrowing the wardrobe from the 2010 film Tron: Legacy for the last three years.
