The Word: Scarlett Johansson hacked!
The rarest of rare nude celebrity photos have hit the Internet: Shots of a person you’d actually want to see undressed who neither regularly undresses nor stars in a reality show (kind of a mood-killer).
We’re talking, of course, about the Scarlett Johansson pics that went up yesterday morning. (Stop Googling — it’s rude.) Even better, you can assume that they’re real: The actress is reportedly working with the FBI because her cell phone was hacked, according to TMZ.
Before you start judging her, get back to Google and have a look. We’ve reviewed the photos — in the name of responsible journalism, of course — and can confirm that we’d swear off clothes forever if that’s what we were hiding. Nicely done, Scarlett!
Paul Rudd is staying clothed, thank you
Although no one is complaining about the Scarlett photos, Paul Rudd isn’t so sure audiences want to see him nude ever again. “I’ve been naked in a lot of my movies. There’s something inherently funny about the naked male body, particularly mine,” he says in the new Playboy. “Ryan Reynolds, sure, it makes sense why he’d strip down. But not me. I shouldn’t be allowed to.”
OK — tomorrow, everyone keeps their clothes on in The Word. Promise.
Jon Stewart geeks out
We love Jon Stewart here. But sometimes, we love him a little more when he takes a break from the (admittedly depressing) news to lighten up. He dishes on his Bruce Springsteen worship in the new Rolling Stone, and it might be the cutest, happiest thing we’ve read all week: “When I listened to his music, I didn’t feel like a loser. I felt like a character in an epic poem about losers. Plus, you would go see his show and he would blow your f—ing mind for four hours. At a certain point, you’d want to go up onstage and be like, ‘Guys! … You’re giving too much! We do not deserve what you’ve done here tonight! A lot of us are jackasses!”
