Did you do your duty as an American patriot this holiday and watch The Interview? The comedy, starring Seth Rogen and James Franco, has been through the ringer prior to its opening, thanks to the Sony hack and North Korea throwing a fit over the film in which Rogen’s and Franco’s characters are tasked with assassinating Kim Jong-un. The film was set to premiere in theaters, canceled and then revived again after the backlash, but in the process, it’s been given up to the Internet gods for consumption — and in true American fashion, we consumed.
The film took top spots on YouTube Movies and Google Play. Xbox Video has also made the movie available and word is that Netflix is in talks with Sony to stream the movie itself. But not everyone watched the movie from the comfort of their couches. The Interview played at 300 independent theaters when it opened on Wednesday. The movie has brought in $1 million since its Christmas Day release.
Christmas may be over, but Love‘s advent calendar sure isn’t. In case you missed it yesterday (you know, spending time with your family, opening presents and all), the magazine released a short for Christmas Day, starring Cara Delevingne and Katie Grand’s 4EVA girlcrush, Kendall Jenner. Cara, clad in a red and white polka dot onesie and one of her famous zip-up hoodies and Jenner in all black everything, frolic and twirl through a beautiful garden before running wild through a very stately-looking home. It is Jenner’s third appearance in Love‘s advent calendar, so maybe the infinite amount of other models the magazine could have possibly used were all busy. It’s the holidays after all, people have full schedules…
Love also cooked up a non-Jenner treat for Boxing Day. The magazine tapped Irina Shayk to do a little striptease in a short directed by Doug Inglish. The leggy model playfully removes a black blouse and very tight miniskirt, revealing the thong on her plunging neck lace bodysuit. On a background of shiny silver paper, shakes her hips, seductively drops to the ground posing and kicking her feet in yet another supremely sexy entry from the British biannual. (more…)
As Cara Delevingne focuses less on her modeling and continues to line up acting gigs, we’re savoring every one of her model moments. And her latest is definitely one to watch. Nowness tapped the model for one of its “director’s cut” shorts. Matthew Donaldson filmed Delevingne trying on clothes, playfully dancing and preening for the camera in true Cara fashion. She makes faces, does the mashed potato in high-top sneakers and manages to look glamorous even when she gets stuck while putting on a shirt.
It’s the Cara Delevingne we’ve all come to know and love, and we will cherish her forever. Watch the model in action above.
How much underwear do you think you could collect in a year? 100 pairs? 365? Well, if you are Yulin, China lingerie thief Tan, it’s about 2,000 pairs. Over the past year, this creepy theif was lifting underwear from neighbors in his building, using a master key to get inside each apartment. Tan would pay his unlucky neighbors a visit while they were out and would hide his booty in the ceiling tiles in the stairwell of the building.
The skivvies-stealing plan seemed be going great until, like Icarus, Tan flew a little too close to the sun and came crashing back down to earth – or rather, the evidence (sorta) fell out of the sky. His stash was safe in the ceiling until he added so much new underwear to his stockpile, the ceiling tile collapsed, exposing his crime.
Tan says that he has a mental illness and he simply couldn’t help himself. Still, we don’t know if we should be extra creeped out that he hoarded all the underwear in his building, or a little impressed that he managed to keep much of the mess out of his apartment. Either way, the guy collected a lot of underwear over the year, which makes us wonder where he found the time to hoard so much. You know what? We don’t even really want to know.
