Lots of people escaped from their families to catch some movies this weekend.. and two movies broke all time records. What went down at the box office?

GQ came up with a list of the least influential celebrities of 2013.. and some names on the list may really surprise you. And some, not so much.
Dennis Rodman was named the least influential of the year because of his involvement with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. The magazine called him “A Q-list celebrity willing to commit borderline treason just to hang out with a dictator who himself aspires to be a Q-list celebrity.”
Other celebs making an appearance on the list include Miley Cyrus (because of her desperate for attention VMA performance.. and it actually worked), President Obama (“nothing gets done”), Lady Gaga, Will Smith and his whole family (Ha!), Prince George (said that he should have been a special baby with all of the coverage that he got but he “can’t even decide on an eye color yet”), Justin Bieber (sooo many reasons), Paula Deen and the Pope.
Find out all 29 celebs that made the list HERE… Agree with GQ? Any celebs that they forgot to put on the list?
Mark Wahlberg knew that 50 Shades of Grey was going to be big! He says that he knew about the movie early on and he wanted to be the one to produce it… but he ended up losing the bidding to another movie company and almost fired his agent because of it.
He already had a man in mind for the lead role of Christian Grey too. He wanted to give the part to Brad Pitt! Now, he didn’t want to give him the role because he’s hot and probably experienced in 50 Shades of doing those things to Angelina department. Mark wanted to give Brad the role because this would be the first time that he could cast Brad, rather than just lose out a role to him.
Mark said that when Christian was being described to him, someone mentioned that the character sounded a lot like Marky Mark himself. Mark said, “No, sounds like Brad Pitt to me… I wanted to produce because I was never going to get the script first. I had to wait for Brad Pitt to pass.”
Now all this wishful thinking is in the past because the role of Christian has been cast to Jamie Dornan (as a long as he doesn’t back out like Charlie Hunnam), but do you think that Brad would have been good for the role? Or is he a little too old?
Kanye West just might be the most ridiculous person in the world. I want him to be the knight and shining armor that saves Kim Kardashian from her mundane life of loving herself… but he has his own narcissus complex. I don’t know if they will end up working out in the end. Does she hear him talk? Ego city. I couldn’t take it. I would pop him in his mouth until he learned his lesson.
Here are just a few dumb things that he said in another interview. He waged a war against Louis Vuitton for turning down a meeting with him. He is Yeezus after all. Who the heck does Louis think he is?
Kanye said, “While I was in Paris I wanted to meet the head of Louis Vuitton and he said, ‘I don’t understand why we need to meet with you?’ I said, ‘Let me explain to you why you need to meet with me.’”
Then he said, “Everybody in New York City right now, don’t buy any Louis Vuitton until after January…Now do you wanna meet with me? Influence…they think that I don’t realize my power.”
Sorry but I don’t think that Kanye has the power to take down Louis Vuitton on his own and I think that it’s laughable that he thinks he does. Kanye will be his own downfall.
Then in another interview, Kanye started praising the Kardashians for making the world a better place… because they date the brothers.
He said, “A lot of what the Kardshians do,I don’t think they get enough credit for what they do. They prep America to accept interracial relationships. I’m not talking about me, I can hope on a plane. I can date a white woman, I can date a black woman, and no matter what they say in the barber shop don’t matter, because I don’t get my haircut there.”
“For the people that do, though, there’s a white woman that’s getting talked down to by her friends because she’s dating a black guy. Now you’ve got a point of reference, that you can say, ‘Well, actually this couple right here, that’s dope.’”
There are some things that you can praise the Kardashians for, I’m drawing a blank right now but I’m sure there is. Maybe they do a lot for charity or orphans or something. But I don’t think that they should be praised for dating black men. This isn’t the olden days and they aren’t doing something remarkable because of their preference of men. Geez Yeezus. Give them props for something that matters.
There’s a lot of holiday hooking up going on right now. Doesn’t it usually work the opposite way though? I thought people avoided hookups around the holidays so they didn’t have buy more gifts.
Charlize Theron was dating Seth MacFarlane for a little bit but now, there relationship is as dead as Brian Griffin. Charlize has moved on.. and she’s allegedly dating Keanu Reeves. According to Star Magazine, the couple has been friends with benefits for years and their relationship recently blossomed into more.
Leonardo DiCaprio split from his latest Victoria’s Secret angel girlfriend Toni Garrn but he’s already snagged another. Well, a former. He’s hooking up with the newly single Miranda Kerr. They were spotted on a dinner date in Vegas a few weekends ago. Leo’s allegedly been hot for her for awhile and went in for the kill as soon as she was back on the market. He’s no Bieber but she’s digging their new hot romance.
They’ve denied their relationship before but Kris Jenner and Bachelor star Ben Flajnik are having a fling, according to Us Weekly. Kim and Khloe supposedly approve of their relationship because it makes their mama so happy. And Bruce Jenner is happy that she’s not his problem anymore.
Laura Prepon, the red head from that 70’s Show (and Orange is the New Black, such a good show), is up for her biggest role yet.. Will she play wifey to Tom Cruise? Tom doesn’t want to have to brain wash another wife so he’s scoping out the dating scene in his Scientology circle.. and he took fellow Scientologist Laura on this hot date. He wowed her by picking her up in her favorite vintage car, ordering a vintage bottle of wine. She fell for it and they had a lovely date with a lot of laughs.
And finally, this isn’t a hook up yet but it has potential. Johnny Depp’s girlfriend Amber Heard has a thing for the ladies.. and Angelina Jolie in particular. She supposedly has a crush on Angie and begged Johnny to introduce them. He’s hesitant though because he’s afraid that the sparks will fly and he’ll lose Amber to Angie. Angelina is a man-stealer after all.. Could she be a woman stealer too?
