1. Melissa McCarthy blames her husband for slimming down her image.

Remember the movie poster photoshop fail where actress Melissa McCarthy was rendered unrecognisable?

McCarthy has (jokingly) blamed her actor husband, Ben Falcone, for the altering the poster promoting her new movie, The Heat.

“Ben did it, and we had a big fight about it because I said I wanted it 80 per cent smaller and he said he wanted it 70 per cent,” she told The Hollywood Reporter.

The movie’s director Paul Feig told The Huffington Post, he was disappointed with the image which promoted the film’s UK release.

HP: I doubt you had anything to do with that UK poster for “The Heat” that aggressively Photoshopped the way Melissa looks, but what did you think when you saw that?
Feig: That’s the problem: I have very little to do with that — especially in the foreign markets. It’s a bummer. I love Melissa exactly how she is.

7. American artist transforms hate speech into beautiful works of art.

Meet Derek Gores, the American artist who transforms anti-gay rhetoric into beautiful artworks.

‘Love and Only Love’ is constructed from anti-gay news articles and images collaged together to depict a same sex family – his sister Emily, her wife Tiffany, and their daughter, Raleigh. It was made in response to California’s former gay marriage ban.

He told The Huffington Post last week:

“I don’t go for intellectual symbolism, or angry art. Instead, I depicted a day at the park. A regular day for people with a rich love, enjoying time, watching their daughter be silly, be curious, and wearing a super hero t-shirt like she often does. But a closer look shows that the piece is made of a spectrum of elements. Fun and regular life, but also elements of hate speech and some of the challenges that gay people deal with.”

10. Streaker gatecrashes Milan Menswear show.


The front row guests at Dolce & Gabbana’s most recent menswear collection shown at Milan were treated to a rather er, ballsy display. A male streaker gatecrashed the catwalk just after designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana took their bow.

The man, stripped off leaving only his red sneakers on shouted and paraded around with his arms in the air. It’s unclear if he was protesting anything or just wanted to show everyone what he was made of.

GQ’s Matt Sebra’s eyewitness account: “While the designers come out for their bow and turn to walk backstage, from down the other end of the runway a guy rips off his clothes. (Not sure if it was breakaway suit or what.) Full freeball.”

Takeout: birthday suits will be in next season.
