Dallas Buyers Club is a forthcoming film based on the life of Ron Woodroof, who “began smuggling alternative drugs into the U.S. to help himself and other AIDS patients” after he was diagnosed with the illness and given six months to live. Although Matthew McConnaughey plays Woodroof, it’s his co-star, Jared Leto, who’s getting… Read More

We’ve been hearing a lot of buzz recently about Jesse Plemons (ahem, Landry Clarke from Friday Night Lights) and his real-life band, Cowboy and Indian. Some of our favorite Landry scenes in FNL were related to his Christian speed-metal band Crucifictorious, but Cowboy and Indian may be, if anything, its polar opposite. Watching Landry croon bluegrass melodies on guitar and sip whiskey under a warm light in his recently released vido got us thinking about all the characters with bands who actually have bands in real life — and which ones are better. Click through for our roundup of bands from TV and film whose members are — for better or worse — actually musicians, and tell us if you agree with our verdicts in the comments! … Read More
We’ve been excited about Hesher ever since we first heard about the film, which debuted at Sundance last year. So we’re definitely planning to see it when it makes its theatrical debut this weekend. But despite our anticipation, we do have one worry: that we’ll never be able to look at Joseph Gordon-Levitt the same way again. You see, he plays Hesher‘s title character, a greasy, ratty-haired, tattooed metal guy with bad teeth and penchant for farting. Thankfully, Gordon-Levitt is hardly the first actor to sacrifice beauty or likability for a good role. After the jump, we recall ten more roles that killed our crushes, on everyone from Charlize Theron to Christian Bale. … Read More
Oh boy. We already have so many conflicting feelings about Jared Leto. He was every girl’s (and many guys’) high-school crush, back in his Jordan Catalano days. A few years after that, he kind of fell off the radar. But recently, his band that everyone used to joke about, 30 Seconds to Mars, has become legitimately, horrifyingly popular — to say nothing of the unfortunate hair choices that seem to define his new, rock-star persona.
So, we’re feeling pretty ambivalent about this clip Leto posted on his website yesterday, the 17th anniversary of Cobain’s death. It shows the actor/musician dressed up as Cobain, performing “Pennyroyal Tea” and a few seconds of “Rape Me,” as well as wandering around outdoors with a flannel shirt tied around his waist. Leto explains that he shot the clip when he heard a film was being made about Cobain’s life (probably, from the looks of it, Gus Van Sant’s Last Days) but never submitted it for consideration. Of the late legend, Leto writes, “He gave us all permission to create no matter what our skill set and reminded me that dreams are possible. Thanks for that.” Thoughts? … Read More
If you’re short on time, then you should just skip the first half of 30 Seconds To Mars’ new music video for “Hurricane.” The really racy stuff (namely the moment at 9:17, when, as MTV’s compliance team notes, “WOMAN RUNS FINGER OVER OTHER WOMAN’S G-STRING CLAD BOTTOM AND TOUCHES HER ANUS”) doesn’t happen until over half way in. Yes, this music video is 13 minutes long and it’s broken down into chapters. Click through to watch the censored (but still NSFW) version of the banned clip and check out a rather hilarious frame by frame analysis of the original by MTV’s censors. It’s also worth nothing that while 30 Seconds To Mars do hope to post the uncut video online at some point, it hasn’t happened yet. … Read More
Today is World Vegetarian Day, the official kickoff of the North American Vegetarian Society’s annual Vegetarian Awareness Month. In honor of the unofficial holiday, we decided to seek out some of the more surprising famous meat shunners. Maybe these unlikely herbivores will help convince you that anyone can do it. Or maybe they’ll just make you want to go eat a burger. Either way, enjoy! … Read More
Today at Flavorpill, we found out that Kettle Chips and juice boxes are making Americans gay. We got a sneak peek at NYC life’s fall lineup — which includes The Flavorpill Fix! We hoped that Tavi Gevinson, everyone’s favorite 13-year old fashion blogger, realizes how lucky she is to inherit … Read More
The internet is home to a glut of information on how to fake your way in to New York Fashion Week (seriously, Google it). But for the hundreds who desperately want in there are thousands who don’t understand why this week, or its worldwide counterparts, matter. New York Fashion Week has become an arena housing a spectacle of sartorial gladiators, a place to see and be seen, and a bit of an enigma to those who don’t work within the industry. … Read More
