It’s tough being a gossip columnist some weeks … like the ones where you have to watch videos of Alexander Skarsgard in the nuddy … I don’t know how I cope. The item was our most popular gossip post of the week and revealed that the actor filmed a full-frontal nude scene for the finale of True Blood (beware, spoilers!). I loved Hollywood Life’s lament: “I really want to believe Eric and his penis are still alive.” Click here to see the video.
>> In what is possibly the strangest celebrity stalker story we’ve heard yet, a 49-year old former fireman – and, evidently, massive J-Lo fan – shacked up in the pool house of the singer’s Hamptons mansion earlier this month. Although John M. Dubis made no secret of the fact he’d taken up residency, reportedly sleeping on the couch, parking his car in plain view and even sharing photos of the house online, he went unnoticed by J-Lo’s security team for six days. SIX DAYS.
>> Here’s a video to put a smile on your face – celebrity photographer Matt Hoyle has united Kermit The Frog and Steve Martin on Funny Or Die having a banjo duel. It’s to promote his book, Comic Genius: Portraits of Funny People, which features the two of them plus Tina Fey, Chevy Chase, Robin Williams, “Weird” Al, Jane Lynch, Neil Patrick Harris and more.

>> Tina Fey fretted on the David Letterman show that her toddler Penelope is a sociopath: “I was giving her a bath one night, and she was overtired – in her defense – and I said, `OK, bath time over.’ She got real mad that I took her out of the bath… She looked me square in the eyes, and with two tiny little hands, choked me. It’s so funny because they’re not strong enough to kill you. Not yet. Try again in a couple of years, Penelope!”
