The Disgusting Way Kristen Bell Helped Prepare Dax Shepard For A Nude Scene The Disgusting Way Kristen Bell Helped Prepare Dax Shepard For A Nude Scene
Kristen Bell shaved Dax Shepard’s ass hair with a razor. The delightful, petite actress had to take one for the team when Shepard realised that the abundance of hair on his ass would be noticeable when he filmed his This Is Where I Leave You nude scene. It’s just a pity that the film turned out to be so average.

Gone Girl held the number one spot for a second weekend in a row, while four newcomers settled for non-exciting to down right disappointing openings. Several major small release indie and indie-ish movies hit theaters with mixed results.

This Rotten Week: Predicting Addicted, Dracula Untold, The Judge Reviews And More This Rotten Week: Predicting Addicted, Dracula Untold, The Judge Reviews And More
I do This Rotten Week every Sunday, and most times can’t wait to sink my teeth into what’s about to hit screens. But man, this week took some effort. It wasn’t that the films look all bad (some do), but rather just boring. Four flicks hit the screen, but it looks like there is very little to get too excited for. We’ve got bad days, addictions, bloodsuckers and judges.

The Judge, Starring Robert Downey Jr., Hires A New Writer The Judge, Starring Robert Downey Jr., Hires A New Writer
I'm not 100% sure how quickly this is going to head into production. While hiring a new writer is progress, the production schedule of Iron Man 3 and the rebirth of Dobkin's Arthur & Lancelot at Warner Bros. means that neither the star nor director will be available for the next few months. It's good to know that both of them have something in the pipeline, though.
