David Beckham and James Corden Are Revolutionizing Dude Underwear

James Corden shed his typical late-night uniform to star alongside David Beckham in an ad for their new line of underwear. What’s better than two guys in tighty whities? Two guys in tighty whities hilariously parodying super serious fashion commercials.D&J Briefs will make you feel supported, cradled, and free. “It’s underwear for men with a great body. And David Beckham.”

Corden respects the filmography of Tom Hanks, and knows that 2015 is the year of the bulge. Best late-night host ever.

Here’s a tough question. Are underwear models sexier with or without their clothes on?

Megan Fox: “I’m A Free-Spirit Mother”

megan-fox-harpers-bazaar

Actress Megan Fox covers the April issue of Harper’s Bazaar Arabia and dishes on her public image, and family life with husband Brian Austin Green and their two sons: Noah, 2, and Bodhi, 1.

On her parenting style: “I don’t think I need to teach my children with harsh words or with punishment. I believe that if I love them the right way, there’s no need for that. I’m a free-spirit mother.” She regrets not being “a better influence” on her step-son Kassius, now 13, when she began dating Green. “I don’t talk to Bodhi like he’s an adult, obviously, but I listen to everything he says to me and I believe in him: I believe that he sees things I don’t see, I believe he has things to teach me, and so I don’t act as a disciplinarian or an authority figure per se. I don’t ever want to be a restrictive force on him; I want to be an expansive force…I want him to be inspired by me because he constantly inspires me as well. Motherhood has really deepened me and has given me so much perspective. I’m very dedicated.”

On her son Noah‘s love of kimonos: “He’s obsessed with my collection! When we went on vacation to Hawaii he wanted one because he always sees me in these amazing, long, crazy kimonos. So I got a Missoni piece for him and he wears it and he’s so happy and proud and he’s singing all the songs from Tarzan… I like being magical and I like having freedom when I dress. I have some Cherokee background in me so I’m in for anything tribal or Native American.”

On getting date time with her husband: “We ask his mum to come once a week so that we can go to dinner, go have sushi or something like that. But now that they’re so young, it’s just insanity.”

On the public’s perception of her: “I would say most people assume that I’m not very smart or educated or earnest, because I have this image that I’m sort of narcissistic, chasing attention, and wanting people to like me. It makes me laugh because I’ve done plenty of interviews and when you read the article from beginning to end you can see that I’m not your typical music video model.”

Nicholas Sparks Reinvented Shade-Throwing When Asked About ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’

sparks-50-copy

I had the opportunity to ask Nicholas Sparks one question yesterday during a press junket for upcoming film The Longest Ride in NYC yesterday. Naturally, I had to know whether the undisputed romance novel king is a fan of Fifty Shades of Grey. His reaction was nothing short of incredible. “I have read the novel,” Sparks began. “I did not see the film.” [Long pause, eye roll.] “Ummmm. Am I a fan? What I would say is that I’m very comfortable writing what I write.”

Cue silence throughout the room and the “OH SNAP” shouting inside everyone’s minds. Thankfully The Longest Ride star Britt Robertson broke the silence. “Oh, I’ve gotta know more. C’mon!” she said, attempting to pry additional thoughts out of the author. But there he sat, refusing to further comment on a book to movie adaptation he deems unworthy of his time. His way of rejecting Fifty Shades was diplomatic, poetic, and everything I would expect from a romance novelist. Bravo, sir.

Although Sparks is not be a fan of the raunchy franchise, it may have affected him and The Longest Ride team just a little bit. (You see Scott Eastwood‘s butt in the movie.) “I think when we shot that [Scott] probably didn’t know we were shooting it,” director George Tillman, Jr. said. “We felt that most movies like this, most of the time when you see nudity or some nudity, you see the woman. And we just felt like, ‘Let’s show Scott.’ And he always had his shirt off. [Laughs].”

I support all of this.
