Cameron Diaz Has Not Hooked Up with Drew Barrymore .
CAMERON DIAZ admitted earlier this year that she’d once been with another woman. And now she’s strongly denying that it was DREW BARRYMORE. She says, “That makes me want to vomit in my mouth . . . That’s like saying I’m having sex with my sister. Are you crazy? I wouldn’t even ménage with her!”
Is Jessica Simpson Taking Her Husband’s Last Name?
It’s still pretty common for REGULAR women to take their husband’s last name when they get married . . . but it isn’t often that a celebrity does it. JESSICA SIMPSON might be an exception.
She posted a sexy photo of herself on Instagram . . . wearing a one-piece bathing suit while lounging in a pool chair. She captioned it “Jessica Johnson.”
Technically, it’s unclear whether Jessica is OFFICIALLY changing her name. Despite the post, her Instagram handle is still “Jessica Simpson,” and she hasn’t commented further.
Jessica married former football player ERIC JOHNSON earlier this month.
Kristen Wiig Does a “Fully Nude” Scene in an Upcoming Movie
An actress has revealed that, for the first time, she’s doing a “fully nude” scene . . . and that person is: KRISTEN WIIG. And no, she wasn’t joking. It’s for her upcoming comedy, “Welcome to Me”, where she plays a woman with borderline personality disorder who wins millions in the lottery.
Kristen tells “Elle” magazine, quote, “I’d never read a character like that. I got to a scene where it read, ‘She’s fully naked,’ and I remember thinking: ‘If I do this movie, I have to do this scene, because it’s really important to this script.'”
“Welcome to Me” will be out sometime this year, but there’s no release date yet.
Sexy Pictures of Famous People
1. ZAYN MALIK from ONE DIRECTION recently changed his Instagram from private to public. MTV sifted through his photos, and they found one where it looks like he’s wearing a wedding ring. His Instagram username, niazkilam, is an anagram of his name . . . except he swapped out the Y in Zayn with an I.
2. We haven’t seen much of SCARLETT JOHANSSON recently, so it’s a little surprising to see how big her baby bump has become.
3. Kermit the Frog tops a strange list of “The 17 Sexiest Muppets In Human History.” And if you ask me, Miss Piggy was ROBBED for the top spot. She came in at #3 . . . behind Rizzo the Rat at #2. (???)
4. Sexy Video: ANNE HATHAWAY, KRISTEN STEWART and BRIE LARSON from “Community” dressed in DRAG for a new music video. It’s a song called “Just One of the Guys” by JENNY LEWIS.
5. Check out an undated photo of GEORGE CLOONEY’S fiancée AMAL ALAMUDDIN wearing a goofy wig at her law school graduation. Apparently, it’s a traditional thing in the U.K., but it still looks a little silly.
Thor Into a Woman . . . but Chris Hemsworth Will Still Play Him in the Movies
Marvel has decided to make the character THOR a WOMAN in the comics. The ACTUAL Thor gets severely injured and becomes unworthy of his hammer . . . so a female steps up as his successor. This doesn’t necessarily mean the “Thor” or “Avengers” MOVIES are changing though

Someone Is Raising Money Online for a “Batkid” Documentary
Remember BATKID? He was the five-year-old named Miles Scott who had leukemia, and got to pretend to be Batman for a day. 25,000 people in San Francisco helped make it happen by lining the streets and cheering him on. He’s now in remission.
Well, now there’s a Batkid DOCUMENTARY in the works. It’ll be called “Batkid Begins”, which is a play on the first Christian Bale movie, “Batman Begins”.
Apparently most of the filming is already done. But the people making it need money for post-production, and they’re trying to raise $100,000 online. If you want to donate, just go to IndieGoGo.com, and search for “Batkid Begins“.
As of last night, they’d raised $7,635 in the first 24 hours.
Check Out the Trailer for Disney’s “Big Hero 6″, from the Makers of “Frozen”
The first trailer for “Big Hero 6″ is out. It’s the new animated Disney movie from the makers of “Frozen” . . . and it sounds pretty weird. It’s based on a comic book about a group of rookie superheroes who have to save the world.
So it’s kind of like a juvenile version of “X-Men” or “The Avengers”. But the main character is a 13-year-old genius with an inflatable robot sidekick who kind of looks like the Michelin Man. (You can watch the trailer here.)
