Rebel Wilson went on the Tonight Show last night and related a pre-fame encounter she had with noted concierge-lacerator Russell Crowe (masterful, commanding). Wilson had recently received the "Nicole Kidman Scholarship at the Australian Theatre for Young People" when she ran into the actual Nicole Kidman at a Sydney restaurant where she was dining with Crowe.
"I thought now is my chance to say thank you and I went up to them but before I could say anything Russell Crowe looked at me and says 'Fuck off'," she said. "So I just like put my head down and walked away. But thanks Nicole."
Wilson will host the MTV awards on Sunday where she revealed that she will perform with her Pitch Perfect cast mates.
"It's pretty full-on," she says about hosting. "I have to dance, I have to sing, I have to do jokes and I have to try to look hot ... that'll probably be the hardest one."
Gross, Crowe! Are you an actual crow? Did you think she was going to pilfer your baubles? I'm not saying that celebrities should make themselves 100% accessible to the public at all times, but you don't have to be a complete beast about it. Also, I have to say, I wish Wilson wouldn't play up the "I'm gross"/self-hating fatty thing so much. Because I love her. And she is obviously excellent. And some of us are working really hard to break down the "fat and hot are mutually exclusive" paradigm, and jokes like that don't help. So I guess what I'm saying, Rebel, is fuck ON. [News.au]

Jenna Jameson's assistant says the erstwhile porn star attacked her with decorative iPhone brass knuckle thingies.
Shocking details of the arrest have now emerged in Britney Markham's restraining order request, filed by attorney Adam Krolikowski. She claims Jameson barged into a Newport Beach salon and started bitching at her, and eventually punched her in the stomach and back with the weaponized device.Markhan claims Jameson then threatened, "I'll f***ing kill you." The assistant says she definitely was the worse for wear, landing in the hospital.Here's the thing: Brass knuckles are illegal in California, so Jameson could be in felony territory ... but she has an interesting defense — the brass-ass add-ons are an accessory, not a weapon.
Something in Jenna Jameson's life is not going great. [TMZ]
