Adele Had a Beard Named Larry

Every woman goes through a period of life where she either has a beard or is a beard and Adele is no different.


While I wish this was a news item about Adele coming out as gay after dating a man named Larry, it is not. This is about Adele’s pregnancy beard.

“When I got pregnant, I had so much testosterone in me that I grew a beard,” she told The Mirror. “I only cropped it last night. It’s actually true. I’m not telling a joke. I actually have a beard, but I’m proud of it. I call it Larry.”

“My man’s got a good beard,” she added. “He trims it sometimes in the summer. I do have a beard myself, so I can understand when it gets hot in the summer.”

I bet even her beard is talented.


Here’s a fun lil story about Sean Penn’s brush with Richard Ramirez, the Night Stalker! The year was 1987. The place: a downtown L.A. County jail. Sean Penn had been arrested and thrown in a cell for reckless driving and punching out an extra. At the same time, Ramirez was awaiting trial in a cell on the other side of the hall and wanted an autograph (because serial killers are HUGE Sean Penn fans).

The rest (via Radar):

“So I said, ‘Bring the sergeant down here, and I’ll talk to him, and if he approves it, then I want him to write something first and I’ll write him something back,’” revealed Penn.

“… So I get this thing from him and it says, ‘Hey, Sean, stay tough and hit them again — Richard Ramirez, 666,’ with a pentagram and a rendition of the devil.

In response, “I said, ‘You know, Richard, it’s impossible to be incarcerated and not feel a certain kinship with your fellow inmates,” recalled Penn. “Well, Richard, I’ve done the impossible. I feel absolutely no kinship with you. And I hope gas descends upon you before sanity does, you know?”

Penn pocketed the original note Ramirez had sent him. Unfortunately, a fire consumed the actor’s home years later and “that damn thing of his burned with it.”


Real bummer that he lost such a cool souvenir from a man who murdered at least 13 people.

Maybe I should start naming the three or four chin hairs that go from “invisible” to “one centimeter long and spiky” overnight.

And that one bastard on my jawline that I SWEAR TO GOD becomes two inches long before I notice it.
