Halle Berry Looking for Mr. Right
Gentlemen, Halle Berry is searching for a new man and that man could be you! The sexy actress recently gave her first interview in three years to fashion magazine Vogue. In it she discusses her relationship breakdown with baby daddy Gabriel Aubry and how’s she’s ready to love again. She tells the mag, “I'm not done with love, but I refuse to settle. I am a hopeless romantic. And I won't stop till I get it right.” Berry says she is still friends with Aubry and that they will be connected forever because of their daughter. One thing Aubry is missing out on is naked Halle. The actress says she loves being nude, saying, “I love the naked female form.... I just feel like that's the most empowered position you can be in.” She sounds like the ultimate catch! [Vogue]
Pee-Wee Herman is Innocent
Paul Reubens, the man better known as Pee-Wee Herman, has spoken out against his 1991 arrest for public masturbation. The incident was fatal to Reuben’s career at the time and he has only recently revived the much loved character. Reuben says he would have been found not guilty if he had gone to trial. He tells Playboy magazine, “Had we gone to trial, we had ready an expert from the Masters and Johnson Institute who was going to testify that in 30 years of research on masturbation the institute had never found one person who masturbated with his or her non-dominant hand. I’m right-handed, and the police report said I was jerking off with my left hand. That would have been the end of the case right there, proof it couldn’t have been me.” Uh, okay. [FOX News]
Hangover Director to do John Belushi Biopic

It’s been confirmed that Hangover director Todd Phillips will produce a biopic about the late comic icon John Belushi. Warner Bros. has secured the life rights from Belushi's estate and enlisted Phillips and The Pursuit of Happyness screenwriter Steven Conrad to put the project together. Phillips has not yet committed to direct the movie. Even though no actors have been nailed down, Zach Galifianakis, Jonah Hill, and Seth Rogen have been named as potential leads. Belushi died of a drug overdose in 1982 at the age of 33. This could actually be awesome, if done right. [JoBlo]
Time Kicks Tiger Woods While He's Down
Everyone's jumping on the Tiger Woods bashing-wagon, so why should Time refuse to buy a ticket? The magazine has published an article titled "Is Tiger Woods Washed Up?" this week with some scathing editorial attached. "Who is this strange, goateed creature in a Nike shirt, spraying balls all over the course?" they asked in a few demeaning graphs. I'm not so sure the phrase "creature" is the best choice of words, but the rest of the piece makes some valid points. [News Feed]
Brandon Marshall May Give the NBA a Try
With an NFL lockout looming in the 2011 NFL season, Miami Dolphins' Wide Receiver Brandon Marshall has decided that he will kill time by playing professional basketball until it's over. "There's not going to be any football," Marshall predicted. "If there's a lockout, I have to find a job. I figure the [Denver] Nuggets will be a better choice because of the welcome home cheer I'll get -- a couple of boos at first. I'm gonna get with a basketball coach and get to work, prepare for the lockout." So, he won't be taking his talents to South Beach? [ESPN]
