The 5 Best Reactions to Robert Downey Jr. Disappointing a Toddler

Robert Downey Jr kid cryingA photo of a one-and-a-half-year-old crying next to Robert Downey Jr. after his mother introduced him as Iron Man and not the regular guy that he clearly is made the rounds today.

RDJ, father of two, met the boy while walking around Massachusetts, taking a break from filming his new drama, The Judge.

The internet had a lot to say about it, with the worst, most common reaction being something about toddlers being way too young to see Iron Man (as if The Lion King isn’t more traumatizing).

Runner-up for worst goes to anyone who made fun of the kid’s name (Jaxson) and faux hawk. Here are the 5 best comments on RDJ posing next to the from around the net:

1. “Heh. Looks to me like he’s thinking: “I gave up smack for this?!” -sportzzzgirl, Gawker

2. “Maybe he wouldn’t be crying if RDJ wasn’t punching him in the head!” -Jae, People.com

3. “…Don’t even start with the Santa thing…” -AndInOtherNews, Huffington Post

4. “This expression is the face my brain would make 80% of every day if my brain had a face.”  -lumpinrazamafoo, Tumblr

5. “Young Jaxson actually is a big trip-hop fan, and he mistakenly thought his mother said they were going to see RJD2.” -Fozberry, Gawker

In other photos we see that the young boy is a DC Comics/Superman fan and was actually crying because he didn’t get to meet Henry Cavill or Christopher Reeve.

“That kid’s disillusionment will haunt RDJ the rest of his days. You can see him confronting his own mortality andpowerlessness right there in the picture.” -spence900, Gawker

Paris Hilton’s Tear Ducts Exploded at Cannes

Paris Hilton crying cannesParis Hilton cried a waterfall of Valtrex and cranberry pills at Cannes Film Festival last week when she attended a screening of The Bling Ring. If you’ve seen the trailer or read about the movie, you know there’s a scene where Nikki (Emma Watson’s character) and her merry group of thieves burst into Hilton’s mansion and violate her shoe closet and stripper pole exactly like the Burglar Bunch of Hollywood Hills did in 2009.

I was really emotional watching it,” Hilton told Vulture’s Kyle Buchanan. “I literally had tears in my eyes and I wanted to cry. I knew what happened with the burglaries, but I had never actually seen it – so watching it happen, I was like, ‘Oh my God, this really happened to me. These kids were really in my house and did this to me.'”  Continue reading “Paris Hilton’s Tear Ducts Exploded at Cannes”

LeBron James Whines Like a Little Girl With a Broken Doll After End of 27-Game Winning Streak

LeBron James post game interviewEgomaniac baby LeBron James is having a hard week. On Wednesday, the Chicago Bulls put an end to the Miami Heat’s lengthy streak – one rivaled only by Wilt Chamberlain’s ’71-’72 Lakers. To add insult to injury, James narrowly avoided having the headband snatched directly off his dome by an eager fan. The disappointed king vented his frustrations in a post-game interview, calling the streak “one of the best this league has ever seen.”

In the locker room, the LeBron I remember from the infamous 2010 press conference appeared, saying things like “Let me calculate my thoughts real fast” and “I don’t know if I like that question.”

There’s No Getting Around It – Oscar Pistorius Meant To Kill His Girlfriend

Oscar Pistorius cryingThere are still friends, family and devout fans of Oscar Pistorius who do not want to explore the possibility that the murder of his girlfriend was not an accident, but if the police and news reports are even remotely correct, there is simply no way that it was.

30-year-old FHM model Reeva Steenkamp was shot four times through a door in the hand and head. Reports suggest that a first bullet hit her in the hip while she was in the bedroom, and that she was later chased into the bathroom. Even if she wasn’t attacked before entering the bathroom, there is little to no chance that Pistorius mistook her for an intruder.

Most people scream (or make recognizable noises of some sort) when their life is in danger…

The Lack of Dialogue in ‘Les Miserables’ Will Make You Cry

Anne Hathaway cryingAnne Hathaway tells MTV she cries when she watches herself in Tom Hooper’s Les Miserables because she’s “still connected to the experience of making it.” I, on the other hand, cried because there isn’t a single line of non-singing dialogue.

The lack of talking is something you might have missed from reading reviews, which have been mostly positive. Hathaway shines as factory-worker-turned-whore Fantine as does Jackman, Sacha Baron Cohen (for show-stealing comedy relief), Helena Bonham Carter, Isabelle Allen as young Cosette, and Samantha Barks.

Just please don’t think I’m exaggerating when I say there’s no talking, because there really isn’t any.

When you read an interview with Hooper and they talk about his choice to use “little spoken dialogue,” they mean “no spoken dialogue.” And when he says the “primary communication form” is singing, he really means “the only communication form.”  Continue reading “The Lack of Dialogue in ‘Les Miserables’ Will Make You Cry”

Meg White Wasn’t Very Happy About Anything When She Was in The White Stripes

Jack and Meg White boredRegardless of Jack White’s excellent work as a solo artist or with The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather, his most recognizable and perhaps most loved music was always made with Meg White.

As you can see in this, and any other photo of The White Stripes, ex-wife/drummer Meg White isn’t exactly a ball joy and enthusiasm. Jack White confirms the extent of Meg’s Daria-ness in an interview with Esquire.

“In The White Stripes, it was impossible to share the good moments with Meg because she was very uninterested. If something nice happened, it wasn’t like we would hug or have a drink. That wasn’t what went on.”  Continue reading “Meg White Wasn’t Very Happy About Anything When She Was in The White Stripes”

Paparazzi May Have Battery Case Against Justin Bieber [PHOTOS]

Filing a battery case against Justin Bieber is like a complaining that the old folks at the nursing home sexually assaulted you. It’s plausible, but how would they catch you? Why didn’t you just move? Did you want to be attacked?  Continue reading “Paparazzi May Have Battery Case Against Justin Bieber [PHOTOS]”

Beavis And Butt-Head Season 8 Premiere Recap And Stills

Beavis And Butt-Head have returned after 14 sad years, for their ninth season and they’re just as succinct and dumb as you remember.

Actually, that’s not true, the boys seem a little bit smarter, like perhaps their vocabularies grew since they were taken off the air in 1997.

The first episode of the new season, true to the original format and split into two stories, is titled Werewolves Of Highland/Crying.
