Ever stood in front of the mirror trying, and failing, to make yourself cry and wondering how those actor types do it? It's simple, says Emily Blunt, who went on to suggest that a little public discussion of your pubic hair situation usually does the trick. Filming Your Sister's Sister alongside Rosemarie DeWitt, the director suggested Emily's co-star tell the crew something embarrassing in order to produce results and dear old Rosie knew exactly what buttons to push. "Rose told this story that involves my nether regions... Basically, her friend was going out with this boy and he'd said to her, ‘I think you need to shave your pubic hair because it's really pouffey in your underwear,' and so we're doing this scene and Rosemarie just goes: ‘Do you remember when Chris told you to shave your bush?'" she recalled. "I went completely crimson, I was so mortified. For the first time ever on film, I cried with laughter and they caught it, they captured that golden moment when it was completely genuine." [The Sun]

Rihanna has dished out the latest in a series of "fuck yous" to those concerned about her continued involvement with Chris Brown, acting like a rebellious teen when her management label asked that she cut that shit out. "Her management banned her from reuniting with Chris, but she said she'll do whatever the hell she wants to," said some snitch. "Rihanna is rebelling. She says they have been working her too hard and she wants some time to herself. They fear she'll secretly record an album with Brown, just to defy them." Anyone else run out of sighs? [Page Six]

She followed all of the rules when it comes to pregnancy hair color maintenance – don't apply to the roots, sit in a well-ventilated room and steer clear of ammonia – but Kourtney Kardashian is copping a tidal wave of shit for visiting the hairdresser while knocked up. "I haven't touched my hair color in over 10 years and thought it was time for some fun," she wrote on her blog. Personally, I don't care and think the bigger danger is the child being born into that family. But, seeing as I don't have a uterus let alone a baby thing hanging out in it, I'd love to hear your take on the hair dye dilemma. [NYDN]

It kind of makes sense, but it still gives me the tingles in my magic area to learn that Andrew Garfield is naked under his Spiderman costume. "It's just me [under there]," he said. "It's terrifying." Terrifyingly arousing, maybe. [US]
Ever the diplomat, Emma Stone played it cool when asked by Ellen DeGeneres whether Ryan Gosling or boyfriend Andrew Garfield was a better kisser. "Apples and oranges. Ya know," she said. "I love all fruit." Well played. [E!]

Snooki's pregnancy promises to be a rollercoaster of ridiculousness, in a good way, and she's so far keeping up her side of the bargain – spending her days playing dress-ups in her wardrobe and Tweeting the results along with nonsensical yet appreciated commentary. "Preggers power," she wrote. "I'll cut a bitch if you mess w my baby!" Keep on keeping on![E!]

  • Tom Cruise will join the likes of Douglas Fairbanks, Cary Grant and Frank Sinatra when he receives the Friars Club's Entertainment Icon Award – making him the fourth person to ever receive the honor. Club abbot Jerry Lewis says that Tom is getting it because he has "made a global impact on our industry and changed the very face of cinema." But then again, Elizabeth Berkley did the same thing with Showgirls and I know who'd I'd rather see get the award. [Page Six]

  • It should come as no surprise that Madonna has resorted to nasty tricks to inflate record sales. And it should come as less of one to note that it probably wasn't her doing but a company tactic also used widely by other sneaky performers. [Page Six]

  • Courtney Stodden handled things well when responding to the catty jibe dished out to her by Gossip Girl writers.

If Dan was with me, I would have shown him a waaay better time!" [E!]
