Jennifer Love Hewitt and Her Sexiest Shoot Ever

Jennifer Love Hewitt has hit back at critics who have judged her recent weight fluctuations by posing for a series of sexy photos for Maxim. She appears on the cover of the men’s magazine for the third time and looks terrific. The recently slimmed-down star of The Ghost Whisper tells the magazine, "It's nice to have the Maxims of the world out there. You can look at them when you're 80 and be like, 'See? No, really, I was cute. I promise!'” [Celebuzz]

10 News Reporters Getting Owned

Being a real journalist is tough as hell.  Sometimes you’ve got to brave hurricanes, sometimes you’ve got to deal with faulty equipment, and sometimes you’re going to deal with people just owning the piss out of you.  Here are 10 videos of reporters getting a little more than they’re asking for in interviews.

Green Lantern Gets a Hefty Budget

Considering he’s a comic book hero who doesn’t have the biggest fanbase, it was surprising to read news today that the Green Lantern film is going to get a whopping $150 million budget to play with. At this point it’s slated for a December release in 2010, though this to is a tad mystifying seeing as most comic book fare gets the summer blockbuster treatment. Martin Campbell, who directed Casino Royale, is helming the picture, and it has yet to cast an actor to play the Green Lantern himself. Some pretty heavy hitters have thrown their names into the hat – Ryan Gosling and Chris Pine included – though Brian Austin Green has recently made the adorable suggestion that he be considered for the role. If Green got the role, maybe they could write in a sequence where he plays a synthesizer and sings to a group of female volleyball players on the beach. [Screen Rant]

Pirate Bay Pirates Will Win For Sure

The verdict in the trial against the owners of the largest torrent sharing site on the internet, The Pirate Bay, is dropping this Friday.  And, according to Anders Rydell, who wrote a book about the pirating movement online, suggests that no matter what the verdict is, the pirates will win.  If they’re innocent, it will revitalize the community of file sharers because legality will be less of a question.  If they lose, they’ll be martyrs and the pirate community will surge to fight the power even harder.

Kanye, Coldplay, NIN Headline Roskilde 2009

Lily Allen, Kanye West, NIN, Coldplay, Lil Wayne, and Elvis Costello lead the lineup for the 2009 Roskilde festival, to be held in July in Roskilde Municipality, Denmark. Other confirmed acts are Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Pet Shop Boys, Oasis, and Fleet Foxes. This lineup is pretty unreal. [Roskilde Festival]

"Hungry Eyes" singer Eric Carmen was sentenced to 180 days in jail today by an Ohio judge today for the epic DUI caught on tape back in September. Lucky for him, he’ll only have to do 30. The former member of The Raspberries was also ordered to pay a $1,000 fine. For those who haven’t seen the tape, Carmen was so drunk that he hit a fire hydrant and then handed cops his credit card instead of his driver's license. Carmen also blew a .23, nearly three times the legal limit. This was Carmen's second DUI. He will begin serving his sentence on April 25th. [TMZ]

Bill Gates Designs Your Next Car

Looks like the blue screen of death is about take on a whole new meaning. A Mr. William H. Gates III (that would be Bill Gates of Microsoft fame, of course) is listed as one of the inventors on a recent patent application for an "Electromagnetic engine." What's that mean? According to the filing at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, the contraption somehow "converts mechanical energy of a piston to and from electrical energy during each piston cycle." There are two engine designs illustrated in the patent, and the basic premise of both is to combine the electrical generating capabilities of a generator with the moving pistons of an internal combustion engine. Here's hoping this pans out better than the whole Vista thing, Bill. [Jalopnik]
