Models first, movie stars later

How many movie stars can you name that started out as models? Marilyn Monroe comes to mind first then Raquel Welch followed by Cybil Shepard. Did you know that Halle Berry also started out as a model? The Biography Channel even did a show about them. I wonder why they managed to leave out the male movie stars that started out as models.

Of course there are those that go from modeling straight to Playboy pinups and then on to the silver screen. With the advent of the internet, video models are no longer required to live in New York City or L.A., those areas are now for the runway models like those for Victoria Secret.

Many of the female models started out modeling clothes but a few of them started out with modeling cosmetics in print ads.

Here is a video from YouTube showing a wonderful selection of models showing off AMIClubwear.

I wonder if one of them will make it to the silver screen? Maybe one of them already has. AMI is also giving away a $300 gift certificate for just following them on YouTube, here are the official contest rules. Maybe you can win one of those outfits the girls are wearing in the video. Better yet model an outfit and make your own YouTube video and maybe one day you can follow the likes of Halle Berry and the others.


Summer movies

Have you seen Night at the Museum yet? How about Star Trek? Angels and Demons? There are plenty of early summer releases and more to come. I am betting there will be lines waiting for the next Harry Potter installment. This is a movie going summer. If you can't go on vacation this year at least treat yourself to a movie on the big screen.

Behind the scenes of Wolverine

Here is a video parody of the movie Wolverine. You may have seen the movie but you haven't seen this bizarre take on Hugh Jackman struggling with his performance in the new X-Men: Origins film! Apparently, the actor's song and dance impulses were a challenge to overcome during the filming of the movie. Watch and enjoy.

Conan takes over the Tonight Show - Jay Leno is out

On June 1st Jay Leno is out as the host of the Tonight Show. Conan is taking over as host. My personal opinion is that Conan will make a lousy Tonight Show host. Here is a list would I would think would be excellent choices as host of the Tonight Show:
  • Robin Williams. His humor would keep the show going even if there were no guests.
  • Howie Mandel. He has proven himself as a host of game shows.
  • Tom Bergeron, the host of America's Funniest Videos.
  • A female comedian. Maybe it is time for a sex change.
What do you think? Will Conan be a good replacement? Could they do better and pick someone else? You tell me.

This coming January 2010 there is going to be such a cruise from Miami to Mexico and back to Miami with those performers. It is called the Heatwave Celebrity Cruise The 5 day trip is supposed to be jam packed with the stars performing and of course mingling with the rest of the people on board.

Beach wear, celebrity style

The basic bikini is still very much in vogue for celebrities at the beach. Some wear them well and others need to put a cover-up over their skinny frames. Below are just some of those famous gals with not so famous bodies, all in bikinis:

Hillary Duff

Lindsay Lohan

Nicole Richie

Now if you have delusions of wanting to look like the stars while at the beach I really think you can do better and look more like the swim suit model below showing off what those stars are suppose to look like in those bikinis.

This summer is starting to look good from all entertainment angles. Now if we can only get Nicole Richie to put some weight on or at least wear a one piece suit.
