Kristen Bell Humps Vanity Fair

The Heroes actress Kristen Bell poses for Vanity Fair to promote her new film, Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

Synopsis: Struggling musician Peter Bretter has spent six years idolizing his girlfriend, television star Sarah Marshall. He’s the guy left holding her purse in paparazzi photos and accidentally omitted from acceptance award speeches. But his world is rocked when she dumps him and Peter finds himself alone. After an unsuccessful bout of womanizing and an on-the-job nervous breakdown, he sees that not having Sarah may just ruin his life. To clear his head, Peter takes an impulsive trip to Oahu, where he is confronted by his worst nightmare: his ex and her tragically hip new British-rocker boyfriend, Aldous, are sharing his hotel. But as he torments himself with the reality of Sarah’s new life, he finds relief in flirtation with Rachel, a beautiful resort employee whose laid-back approach tempts him to rejoin the world. He also finds relief in several hundred embarrassing, fruity cocktails.

Kristen Bell Humps Cosmopolitan

Heroes & Gossip Girl’s Kristen Bell graces the cover and pages of Cosmopolitan May issue, to promote her new film – Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

Playing the pretty girl: The feedback I’ve always gotten is that I was not nearly pretty enough to play the pretty girl and not homely enough to play the ugly girl. So I’ve always been like, ‘I’ve got to be able to fit in somewhere!’

The gossip press: I could spend all day weeping about the bad parts of this career, but I wouldn’t change it…you just buck up and build a thicker skin, you know?

If I weren’t an actress, I’d be a: Vet. The Patch Adams of the veterinary world.

The weirdest rumor I’ve heard about myself is: That I got a boob job. I’m barely a B cup!

Despite what you’ve heard I’ve never: Dated Justin Timberlake. I’ve never even met him, so you can understand why I was surprised to read an article about our torrid love affair.

Masi Oka’s Radar

Heroes star Masi Oka talks to Radar about being a working- actor, receiving computer science & mathematics degrees from Brown University, working at George Lucas’ Industrial Light & Magic, and luck. You can’t believe everything you read, but here are some excerpts from Radar:

What brought you into acting?

I wanted to try to be comfortable with who I am. I mean I grew up being your standard geek. I was into math and computer science, and I had friends who thought the same, looked the same, and started smelling the same. I thought, college is a place where I can learn, and not just get an academic education, but a social education. I wanted to learn more about the human condition and to learn more about myself. That’s why I got into theater.

There’s something I’m very curious about. I’m Taiwanese and was raised by a very traditional Asian mother. I was wondering what your mom thought of your career choice. How did she react when you told her you wanted to be an actor?

She was like, “Ummm … okay whatever you want.” She wasn’t overjoyed, but luckily things worked out. My thing was as long as I didn’t put any financial burden on my mother, I figure she’d be supportive of what I did. I always had a great job at ILM [George Lucas’ Industrial Light & Magic], which supported my acting career, and they were very patient with me while I was pursuing it as well. Which is what I came to L.A. for and I got relatively lucky in the first few years.

Can you at least give us any clues about what will happen to your character this season?

Well, he’ll be in feudal Japan for a little bit. He meets his childhood hero and unfortunately gets disillusioned because it’s someone completely different. So there’s going to be a lot of him trying to right what’s wrong. And with the space-time continuum, whenever you try to right something in the past, well, some things were meant to be and some things aren’t.

Heroes Sucked … (Again!)

RR Watch: Heroes Sucked … (Again!)


NBC/IMDB

I’m getting tired of no real growth in the stories and characters in NBC’s Heroes. We’re given unnecessary cliff hangers segments (before the commercial breaks), instead of providing us with excellent stories that warrants cliff hangers. Last week, I fell asleep watching Heroes’ season premiere. That’s doesn’t say much about the show, and maybe more about me.

So I watched the second episode that aired last night, and then I realized that I didn’t miss anything from the season premiere (episode). I don’t watch a lot of television, but I do try to catch Heroes whenever I can. They need to move the stories along and give these heroes some growth. I’m tired of Claire Bennet (Hayden Panettiere) whining all of the time and having no real connection to three a dimensional character, and I’m definitely tired of (Masi Oka) Hiro Nakamura’s bamboozle presence and voyage through Japan. It’s embarrassing to watch an interesting show turn itself into a self-parody.

Please Tim Kring stop supervising the writers, and dive into the writing ASAP, and give your occasional viewer like myself, real stories with real characters that happen to have super-hero powers.

Thanks.
