    Scarlett Johansson isn't ready to talk yet about Nate Naylor, her just-revealed boyfriend of five months. The sartorial choices of Rick Santorum and the Republican National Committee, however, were fair game for Johansson, 27, who stepped out at a Tuesday fundraiser for President Barack Obama hosted by Vogue in NYC. Santorum, 53, was the surprise winner in the Republican primaries in Minnesota, Missouri and Colorado on Tuesday -- but Mitt Romney's rival won't be winning any fashion awards for his talked-about sweater vests, Johansson joked. "Oh gosh, so sad," the We Bought a Zoo actress said. "My dad wore them,...

    Mark Wahlberg quickly apologized Wednesday for claiming he would have subdued the 9/11 hijackers. The "Contraband" star said that had he been on hijacked flight United 93 on Sept. 11, 2001, as originally scheduled, it wouldn't have crashed into a field in Pennsylvania. Wahlberg was scheduled to fly from New York to Boston on the morning of Sept. 11 on the flight that was hijacked by Al Qaeda terrorists. But he had a change of plans before the fateful date.
  • Cosmetic chemical hinders brain development in tadpoles

    01/10/2012 1:36:55 PM PST · by Red Badger · 11 replies ^ | 01-10-2112 | Brown University
    Scientists, health officials, and manufacturers already know that a chemical preservative found in some products, including cosmetics, is harmful to people and animals in high concentrations, but a new Brown University study in tadpoles reports that it can also interrupt neurological development even in very low concentrations. In the cosmetics industry, the biocide methylisothiazolinone or MIT, is considered safe at concentrations of less than 100 parts per million. Lab studies, however, have found that lower concentrations affected the growth of animal neurons. Picking up from there, the Brown researchers performed a series of experiments to investigate how 10 days of...

    December 6, 2011 ( - After a series of child sex abuse revelations hit Hollywood in the past month, both experts and previous child stars say the crackdown only scratches the surface of what has long been the entertainment industry’s darkest secret. Fox News reported Monday that former child stars of several eras - one even well into his 60s - reacted with grim sagacity as sex abuse charges were laid or discovered against three Hollywood employees: Martin Weiss, a 47-year-old Hollywood manager who represented child actors; Fernando Rivas, 59, an award-winning composer for “Sesame Street”; and registered sex offender...

    If a spate of recent allegations proves true, Hollywood may have a hideous epidemic on its hands. The past two weeks have brought three separate reports of alleged child sexual abuse in the entertainment industry. Martin Weiss, a 47-year-old Hollywood manager who represented child actors, was charged in Los Angeles on Dec. 1 with sexually abusing a former client. His accuser, who was under 12 years old during the time of the alleged abuse, reported to authorities that Weiss told him "what they were doing was common practice in the entertainment industry." Weiss has pleaded not guilty. On Nov. 21,...

    Chaz Bono received dig after dig during his performance on Dancing With The Stars. Now Cher's superstar son has been criticised from some unlikely quarters after Warren Beatty and Annette Bening's transgender son blasted Chaz as a misogynist.

Writing on his blog Super Mattachine, Stephen took issue with Chaz's view that transgender people have effectively been born with a 'birth defect' - something Bono said in an interview with the New York Times.

    Earlier this week, Obama revealed that he was at least considering delaying or denying the Keystone XL, the controversial pipeline that would carry tar sands oil from Canada to the Texas Gulf Coast. His hesitance to approve the pipeline is no doubt thanks the enormous tide of opposition that has risen up against it. From every green group on the books to impacted indigenous peoples to a cadre of outspoken celebrity activists, the opponents of Keystone XL have been gaining momentum indeed. The latest and perhaps most unexpected celebrity to come out swinging at the Obama administration is Julia Louis-Dreyfus,...
