Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley are already getting rave reviews for their starring roles in The Spectacular Now, a film about two complex high school seniors who are drawn to each other despite running in different circles. But while prepping for the roles, the two had to think hard about how they wanted to come across.
“I wanted to work out because it was going to be my first sex scene,” Miles says. “I wanted to get some abs, abs are really cool.” But Shailene, who doesn’t wear any makeup in the film, thought it wouldn’t be right for his character.
“It was both of our first on-screen love-making experiences,” Shailene says of the young actors’ intimate scene. “It was a very safe environment.”
“Pineapple was the safe word,” Miles joked.
Kidding aside, both young stars are mindful of the way they’re portrayed on and off screen. “I hate when I see young adult movies when people look like fake little plastic Barbie dolls.” Shailene says. “It’...Read More »
Roger Hailes thinks all straight guys get man crushes, whether or not they want to admit it. Luckily, he was comfortable enough with his masculinity to reveal the many men of Hollywood who infatuate him.
“My first man crush had to be Burt Reynolds in Cannonball Run,” Roger says about the mustachioed actor. “He just embodies masculinity. You look at him on TV and you can almost smell him.”
So what constitutes a man crush? Roger explains that it’s a kind of non-romantic idolization. “It’s usually achievement-based crushes,” he says. “You like their life so much.”
Another one of Roger’s crushes is Channing Tatum. “I think he’s hot, he says. “And if you’re a straight dude and you can’t admit that Channing Tatum’s hot, you’re so worried about being gay that you ARE gay.”
There’s always something about a bad boy, and it’s the same with man crushes. Roger says his bad boy crush is Kevin Federline, much...Read More »

Nadia G isn’t a “vanilla” sort of cooking host. As the star of Nadia G’s Bitchin’ Kitchen, she rocks animal print, stilettos and some serious tattoos while cooking up a storm. Today, she’s sharing some of her best dishes with Ali.
Drink too much last night? If you’re hung-over, “you probably want to eat something nice and greasy.” She says. Nadia recommends chicken friend steak or poutine, but takes it to the next level if you’re really hurting. “I like to do a celery pineapple smoothie, ‘cause the key there is that it’s gotta taste as good going down as it does coming up.”
On a diet? For a ‘bitchin bikini body, Nadia would make a caramelized onion and fig egg-white sandwich. “The key with low fat eating is you have to make something really flavorful that makes up for the lack of fat,” she says. “Caramelized onions are perfect.”
If Ali wants to seduce George [Clooney], Nadia suggests cooking up a cozy and comforting sirloin shepherd’s pie to win...Read More »

The Australian starlet moved from the land down under to the U.S. when she was cast as surf girl McKenzie in Teen Beach Movie. But even though she’s far from home, she still maintains close ties to her country with her Australian roommate. “She keeps my accent in check,” Maia says about her roomie, who makes her check her American accent at the door.
Maia was also quick to dismiss some rumors for anyone who might be visiting her homeland. “Don’t hold a koala!” She warns. “They’re really vicious and have a really intense, obnoxious mating call. They’re not cuddly. It’s a myth.”
In her short time away from home, Maia has kept herself very busy. On The Fosters, she stars as Callie, a tough, off-beat teen who’s spent her entire life in the foster system. “...Read More »
When it comes to food reviews, Daymon Patterson takes it back to basics. The 35-year-old was working at Walmart when he started filming fast food reviews out of his car during his lunch break. Now, his hilarious commentary landed him his own Travel Channel show, Best Daym Take Out.
He may be a funny guy, but Daymon’s serious about one thing: burgers. Ali put him to the test to answer the age-old question, who makes the best?
McDonald’s Big Mac was the first on the table, and Daymon demonstrated his signature review technique. “You have to roll up on it slowly,” he says. “I always pay attention to my sauce situation. If it’s not on top, PLEASE let it be underneath. The cheese is happening, a little bit of lettuce down there.” His conclusion? “It’s a Big Mac. Take a couple bites and run away.”
Next up? Bacon sliders from White Castle. “Look at those pieces of bacon, isn’t that cute?” Daymon says of the mini toppings. “You know what this is perfect f...Read More »
