Whether they’ve cozied up to Hugh Hefner, have been crowned Playmate of the Year, or graced multiple covers, we’ve seen hundreds of women proudly flaunt their bodies in Playboy over the years. In photos, they’re beautiful, confident, and fearless. But even the gorgeous Pamela Anderson and Jayde Nicole can’t escape bedhead and dark circles on their days off.
Carmen Electra is one of the most famous models to pose for Playboy. But when the cameras aren’t flashing and she isn’t hitting the Hollywood scene, you’ll find her wearing no makeup and over-sized shades. You know why. In the gallery above, you’ll see that even Playboy models ditch the glam squad and sport messy buns, sweatpants, and hair rollers when they’re not working — just like the rest of us.

During a recent trip to VH1, Kal Penn — perhaps best known as Kumar Patel from the wildly popular Harold & Kumar franchise — told us how excited he is about the new wave of Asian-American comedians taking Hollywood by storm. And he’s totally right.
From Mindy Kaling to Aziz Ansari, Asian-American funny people are blowing up the game. Check out our gallery of 10 comedians who are getting us particularly pumped.
Watch Penn discuss the role of Asian-Americans in the media, and how he brought the subject to his class at the University of Pennsylvania. Yes, in addition to working in the Obama administration, this Hollywood staple has been a guest instructor at an Ivy League school. What have you done with your life?

Most trends blaze hot for a brief moment in time, only to quickly disappear into the ether (languishing forever in yearbooks and mortifying music videos). The shelf life for most fashion fads is usually a decade, at most. Not so with platform shoes, a style that reigned from Carmen Miranda and Rita Hayworth‘s 1940s heyday until the Spice Girls and Deee-lite-drenched ’90s. Five decades of sky-high cartoonish heels! Their endurance is fascinating, considering they might be the tackiest invention in styledom. We can only attribute their endurance to the fact that they elongate the leg prettily – and they’re flashy enough for fans to see them from the cheap seats.
From David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust boots to the Tori Spelling‘s teen queen pumps, check out the craziest platforms, ever.

Did you ask for the Dumb and Dumber sequel, Dumb and Dumber To? Because we certainly didn’t. 20 years after the comedy classic was released, it seems unlikely that anyone was actually thinking, “You know what would be great? Another one!” let alone saying it out loud. Sometimes, it’s better just to let great things be. Dumb and Dumber To might make us cringe for many reasons — the name, the jokes — but let’s not forget the many terrible movie sequels that have come and gone, which we never asked for in the first place. All of them butcher the legacy of great movies with their subpar stories and tired catchphrases. Not every movie can be as wonderfully self-aware as 22 Jump Street, nor can every sequel be Terminator 2 — widely regarded as better than its predecessor. The movies we’re looking at are the ones we never wanted, and ones that failed to do the originals the justice they deserved. From the offensive Sex and the City 2 to the cringeworthy Son of the Mask, these are the sequels we always knew we never wanted.
It’s fair to say Anchorman 2 didn’t live up to the hype of the first film. Maybe it would have been better if the cast could weigh in on current news?
