Chris Hemsworth is "People" Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive

"People" magazine has chosen THOR . . . a.k.a. CHRIS HEMSWORTH . . . as the Sexiest Man Alive. And he's hoping it gives him a little advantage over his wife ELSA PATAKY at home.

He says, quote, "I can just say to her, 'Now remember, this is what the people think, so I don't need to do the dishes anymore, I don't need to change diapers. I'm above that. I've made it now.'"

This year's other Sexiest Men Alive include:

Chris' "Thor" co-star Idris Elba . . . Chris Pratt and his "Guardians of the Galaxy" co-star Bradley Cooper . . . "Fifty Shades of Grey" star Jamie Dornan . . . "White Collar" star Matt Bomer . . . Blake Shelton . . . Michael Strahan . . . Tim Tebow . . . andEddie Redmayne, who plays Stephen Hawking in "The Theory of Everything".

The "GQ" Men of the Year Include Chris Pratt, Dave Chappelle, Michael Sam, and . . . Shailene Woodley?

CHRIS PRATT was just named "GQ's" Man of the Year. He's just one of six cover models for this year's Men of the Year issue . . . but he's the only one who can also say he's one of "People's" Sexiest Men Alive.

The other five "GQ" cover models are . . .

Dave Chappelle

Football player Michael Sam

Steve Carell

Ansel Elgort from "Divergent" and "The Fault In Our Stars"

And Ansel's co-star in both those movies, Shailene Woodley. I know that seems weird but they always honor a woman in this issue.

Kim Kardashian Did Those Nude Photos as an "Art Project" . . . And She's Trying to Have Another Kid

KIM KARDASHIAN says she saw her nude photo shoot as, quote, "an art project that was going to make me feel confident and feel good."

On an Australian talk show, Kim explained, "Everyone should do what they are comfortable with, and I'm never one to preach, but I felt really positive and really good about myself. I love the photos. I did it for me. I hope other people like them."

In a separate interview, Kim was asked if she wants more kids. And she said, quote, "I would love to. I would love to. I'm trying."

Is Justin Bieber on Some Sort of Religious Trip?

A few months back, JUSTIN BIEBER supposedly got baptized in a friend's BATHTUB. And apparently he's getting serious about religion again.

TMZ claims Justin is on some sort of religious "mission" trip in California. Supposedly he's spending two weeks hanging out with a pastor . . . and has, quote, "exiled himself from friends, alcohol, weed," and other "ungodly" things.

They have a photo of him next to a Christian book called "Occupy All Streets", which apparently proves he's on a Jesus trip. Or not. Justin hasn't commented.

Kathy Griffin Will Replace Joan Rivers on E!'s "Fashion Police"

Earlier this month, KATHY GRIFFIN said she'd been offered JOAN RIVERS' role on E!'s "Fashion Police" . . . but wasn't sure if it was "right" for her.

Well, apparently she decided it WAS. TMZ says it's a "done deal" . . . and that Kathy will join Melissa Rivers, Kelly Osbourne, and Giuliana Rancic. It's unclear whether or not George Kotsiopoulos will be back.

Word has it the show will no longer be a weekly series. Instead, E! will use it as "event programming," during award shows and other special occasions.

Supermodel Janice Dickinson Says Bill Cosby Raped Her

Another woman has accused BILL COSBY of drugging and raping her. And this one's FAMOUS. It's former supermodel JANICE DICKINSON. She says it happened back in 1982.

Janice told "Entertainment Tonight" that Cosby flew her to Lake Tahoe, supposedly to discuss a role on "The Cosby Show". But he gave her a glass of wine and a pill that she thought was for menstrual cramps.

She said, quote, "The next morning I woke up, and I wasn't wearing my pajamas, and I remember before I passed out thinking that I had been sexually assaulted by this man.

"Before I woke up in the morning, the last thing I remember was Bill Cosby in a patchwork robe, dropping his robe and getting on top of me. And I remember a lot of pain."

Janice claims she tried to write about this in her 2002 autobiography, but Cosby's lawyers pressured her publisher to scrap that section.

As for why she didn't go to the police when it happened, she says she was embarrassed and ashamed. She also said she can't remember if she ever told anyone about it.

Tracy Morgan's Brain May Never Fully Recover

TRACY MORGAN suffered a severe brain injury when that Walmart truck crashed into his car back in June . . . and he might never fully recover.

His lawyer says quote, "He's fighting to get better, and if there's a chance for him to be back to the Tracy Morgan he once was, he's going to try to do that.

"But we just don't know because of the severity of the injuries that he sustained and the fact that he had such a severe brain injury."

He added, quote, "He's still fighting and trying to live his life at the same time and trying to get better, and he's just not better. We're hoping and praying to get him back to where he was. But the jury's out."

KJ's Hollywood Dirt for 11/11/2014

Justin Bieber Forked Over $80,000 to the Neighbor Whose House He Egged

Remember when JUSTIN BIEBER egged his neighbor's house earlier this year? Well, it's going to cost him. The "L.A. Times" says Justin forked over more than $80,000 in restitution to make the misdemeanor vandalism charge go away.

Justin has also completed six of 12 court-ordered anger management classes . . . and he also has five days of community service to do. For that, he's supposedly working for MusiCares, where he'll be doing physical labor including "painting walls and moving office furniture."

Josh Hutcherson Wants to Eat Human Flesh

If you had a chance to eat human flesh . . . you know, just to see what it tastes like . . . would you do it? JOSH HUTCHERSON would.

He tells the British edition of "GQ", quote, "I don't want somebody to die for me to eat them. However, if someone happened to die, from natural causes and it was not so taboo . . . I'm curious.

"I want to know what it tastes like. Like you want to know what a pigeon tastes like, you know, except a human. They're all animals."

By the way, Josh has NEVER hooked up with his "Hunger Games" co-star JENNIFER LAWRENCE. He says, quote, "It's been brother and sister from the beginning.

"We just love each other and that's a special connection that you only have a couple of times in your life."

A New Usher Song Is Available Exclusively as the Prize in Boxes of Honey Nut Cheerios

USHER has come up with an awesome way to release his new single: It'll only be available as the prize at the bottom of specially-marked boxes of Honey Nut Cheerios.

It's a song called "Clueless" . . . and it may or may not be on Usher's upcoming album, "UR". And when you buy the Cheerios, you get a code to download it.

That works, but it would've been even cooler if they put a flash drive in the box, like the toys that were in cereal in the good old says . . . so kids could tick off their parents by digging their filthy hands down into the bottom of the brand new box of cereal.

The special boxes of Honey Nut Cheerios are ONLY being sold at Walmart, where they'll be on shelves across the country beginning TODAY.

Foo Fighters Drummer Taylor Hawkins Calls U2's New Album a "Fart"

FOO FIGHTERS drummer TAYLOR HAWKINS doesn't like the way U2 forced their new album, "Songs of Innocence", on everybody.

He said, quote, "They didn't really take into consideration the 'Big Brother' feeling that kinda goes along with like, 'You [already] have the new U2 record' . . . They actually had to come up with an app to get rid of it. That's horrible."

He's not really a fan on an artistic level either . . . quote, "I don't know that any of that new album has anything great on it. I listened to it once, but it's so marred by that whole sort of Orwellian, '1984' extreme that it just kinda sounds like a fart any way you listen to it."

Miley Cyrus Painted Her Pig's Toenails . . . Is That Animal Abuse?

MILEY CYRUS gave her pet pig Bubba Sue a pedicure last week, which included bright red nails. And, of course, she posted pictures online.

Well, some of Miley's followers are worried that this amounts to ANIMAL ABUSE . . . including one who said, quote, "I think it's cute but it probably hates the nail varnish."

So the question is, is it cool to paint an animal's nails? Is it safe? Or is it ANIMAL ABUSE?

A quick check online reveals . . . nothing conclusive. There are those who say the fumes from human nail polishes are not good for animals . . . and that an animal can also get sick from licking the polish before it dries.

But others say the fumes are no more harmful to your animal than they are to you . . . and that if you use quick-drying polish, the licking isn't a problem.

But there ARE nail polishes made specifically for animals. We found some marketed for dogs and cats, but not pigs. They're quick drying, and made from "natural" ingredients, whatever that means these days.

My thoughts are, if it's something that's going to stress your pet out, don't do it. It's pretty simple.

Matt Damon Didn't Need "Gone Girl" to See Ben Affleck's Manhood

Okay ladies, admit it . . . a few of you bought a ticket to "Gone Girl" just to catch that VERY FLEETING glimpse of BEN AFFLECK's manhood.

Well, if you were as close to Ben as MATT DAMON is, you could have saved your money. Matt was asked if he saw Ben's package in the movie, and he replied, quote, "Oh, I've seen it many times before that."

Disney's "Big Hero 6" Beat Matthew McConaughey's "Interstellar" at the Box Office

The Disney movie "Big Hero 6" was #1 at the box office this weekend with $56.2 million in ticket sales. It beat MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY's space movie, "Interstellar", which made $52.2 million.

If these estimates hold, it will be only the fourth time in history that two movies have opened to $50 million or more in the same weekend. And in all three previous instances, they were an animated and live-action movie . . . and the animated movie won.

(The three times it happened before were with "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa" and "Prometheus" in 2008 . . . "Wall-E" and "Wanted", also in 2008 . . . and "Monsters University" and "World War Z" last year.)

Here are this week's Top 5 movies:

1. NEW: "Big Hero 6", $56.2 million.

2. NEW: "Interstellar", $50 million. Up to $52.2 million since Wednesday.

3. "Gone Girl", $6.1 million. Up to $145 million in its 6th week.

4. "Ouija", $6 million. Up to $43.5 million in its 3rd week.

5. "St. Vincent", $5.7 million. Up to $27.4 million in its 5th week.

Is Bono Telling Taylor Swift to Suck It Up and Embrace Spotify?

Last week, TAYLOR SWIFT yanked her music off Spotify . . . saying, quote, "I'm not willing to contribute my life's work to an experiment that I don't feel fairly compensates the writers, producers, artists, and creators."

Now, BONO from U2 is weighing in, and he seems to be directly responding to Taylor. He says, quote, "It's an experimental period. Let's experiment. Let's see what works."

Bono admits that the money issue is important, but he thinks the problem isn't streaming and downloading. He says the "real fight" is for transparency, so acts can get the data on who's listening to them.

Stuff like how many times their songs are being played, and where they're being played. Then, if they could be paid DIRECTLY, he claims, quote, "those payments will add up to something."

He defends Spotify . . . noting that they're, quote, "giving up 70% of all their revenues to rights owners." But Spotify seems to be contributing to the lack of transparency, and many artists do NOT believe it pays them fairly.

Bono says the bottom line is: Quote, "I think artists should be paid way more than they are. But the greatest way you serve your songs is to get them heard." Which is the BENEFIT of jukebox streaming services like Spotify.

If you're thinking that Bono isn't the best person to be commenting on this . . . especially since he just gave away an album for free . . . he would AGREE.

He says, quote, "I'm already paid too much. I'm a spoiled rock star. I'm the wrong spokesperson for this, but if I were starting a band now, I'd be very excited."

Nicki Minaj Is Pro-Big Booty . . . and Says Screw the Skinny Girls

NICKI MINAJ knows how she'd vote in a sexy election between skinny girls and voluptuous women. She tells "Billboard", quote, "Everything we see that's labeled as beautiful is very skinny.

"In the song ['Anaconda'], I kind of say, '[Eff] them skinny girls.' But it's all love. I consider myself a skinny girl . . . I went overboard with the video to show that I'm not going to hide. And those big-booty dancers I have, they're not going to hide.

"Black girls should feel sexy, powerful and important, too."

Robert Downey Jr. Announced the Birth of His Daughter With a Typically Robert Downey Jr.-esque Facebook Post

ROBERT DOWNEY JR.'s wife Susan gave birth to a baby girl on Tuesday. And Robert made the announcement yesterday on Facebook.

He said, quote, "After 9 months of intensive development, Team Downey is pleased to announce our 2014 fall / winter project.

"Principal photography commenced 11-14 and will continue until she says, "Dad! You are embarrassing me . . . I'm 30, this has gotta stop.

"Yep . . . Avri Roel Downey joined the party at 3:22 A.M. on November 4th . . . she's 7 pounds even, spans 20 inches, and is accompanied by a variety of Susan's traits that have seemingly overwritten my 'junk DNA.'

"I'll post pics here and there when I'm not too busy staring."

Robert and Susan also have a 2-year-old son named Exton Elias. And Downey has a 21-year-old son named Indio from a previous marriage.

"Mean Girls" Reunion: Lindsay Lohan and Rachel McAdams Wanted to Play Each Other's Parts, and Tina Fey Says No Sequel

"Entertainment Weekly" gathered together "Mean Girls" stars Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Lacey Chabert, Amanda Seyfried and Tina Fey, for the movie's 10th anniversary. Here's what we learned . . .

Lindsay and Rachel each originally wanted to play each other's parts. Lindsay says, quote, "I wanted to play Regina. I had just played not the cool girl in school. I was still 17 years old and I wanted to be the cool girl on set."

And Rachel says she originally auditioned for Lindsay's role. But director Mark Waters ultimately convinced them of which parts they needed to play.

Meanwhile, Tina pretty much closes the book on a sequel. She says, quote, "At the time we did want to start the conversation about the sequel, and for whatever reason I was like, 'No!!! We shouldn't do that!'

"Now I look back and I'm like, 'Why?' But now, no . . . it's too late now."

Benedict Cumberbatch is Engaged

BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH may lose his status as every woman's Internet fixation . . . because he's officially off the market. He's engaged to a theater director and actress named Sophie Hunter. He's 38, she's 36.

The engagement was announced without fanfare, in the "Forthcoming Marriages" section of London's "Times" newspaper. Sources say Benedict did the MANLY thing and flew to Edinburgh, Scotland to ask her mother's permission.

Benedict and Sophie met while doing theater together in 2009, but they've been pretty under-the-radar.

Miranda Lambert Took Home Four Awards at Last Night's CMAs

MIRANDA LAMBERT was the big winner at last night's CMAs. She won Best Female Vocalist, Album of the Year for "Platinum", Musical Event for "We Were Us" with Keith Urban, and Single of the Year for her song "Automatic".

LUKE BRYAN continued his monster 2014 by winning Entertainer of the Year. GARTH BROOKS presented him with the award, and that had to be cool. BRETT ELDREDGE broke through to claim New Artist of the Year.

BRAD PAISLEY and CARRIE UNDERWOOD gave their most subdued hosting performance ever, perhaps because of Carrie's pregnancy. The big moment there was when she let Brad "accidentally" let it slip that she's having a boy.

KACEY MUSGRAVES' "Follow Your Arrow" won Song of the Year . . . and her puffed-up hairstyle won the Internet's "most talked about do."

Pop music made several appearances: Everyone was looking forward to Miranda Lambert and MEGHAN TRAINOR doing "All About That Bass" . . . and everyone seemed happy.

LITTLE BIG TOWN performed "Day Drinking" . . . and then they joined ARIANA GRANDE for her song "Bang Bang". It was one of those forced TV moments, but it actually worked.

VINCE GILL was given the second-ever Irving Waugh Award. Big deal? Well, the only other honoree EVER was JOHNNY CASH. The video tribute featured Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, Emmylou Harris, Merle Haggard and James Taylor.

Channing Tatum Was Once Groped By a Woman Who Said He Reminded Her of Her Nephew

Former male stripper CHANNING TATUM has some crazy stories to tell from those days and he's decided to share some of them.

He says, quote, "The lady goes, 'Oh my God! Look at you! You remind me of my nephew!' . . . and then grabs me. It hit me like a hand grenade . . . She's grabbing my butt and saying, 'You remind me of my nephew.'"

This happened at a "convention" Channing went to in the late '90s, which inspired the plot of the upcoming "Magic Mike" sequel. He says, quote, "I have no idea why it's called a convention.

"It was not strippers peddling stripper technology or anything like that. It was just a big show with 50 to 70 strippers and 2,000 to 3,000 women. It was crazy. They attacked me every night."

By the way, he wasn't exactly raking it in back then. He says, quote, "On a good night [I made] 150 bucks. On a bad night, 70 bucks . . . even 50 at times."

KJ's Hollywood Dirt for 10/29/2014

Ellen and Portia Did Not Bag on an Animal Charity Event Because They Got Into a Fight on the Way There

 

The not-always-reliable "New York Post" claims that ELLEN DEGENERES and PORTIA DE ROSSI were supposed to be at a charity event for a pet rescue center on Sunday . . . but they literally turned around and went home because they got into an "epic fight" in their car on the way there.

 

 

But they say it's NOT true.  Apparently, they were never supposed to be there.  They just lent their names to the event as honorary chairs, but their images were used in a way that made people THINK they would be.

 

 

Their rep says, quote, "It was not approved and it is misleading."  Possibly adding to the confusion is the fact that Ellen and Portia actually did attend this same event last year.

 

 

 

KJ"s Kinda Nerdy News: Marvel is Doing Two more "Avengers" Movies, Plus a Black Superhero Movie Called "Black Panther"

 

Just like D.C. Comics did earlier this month, Marvel has announced its movie slate for the next several years.

 

 

The big news is that there will be TWO more "Avengers" movies after next year's "Avengers:  Age of Ultron".  It sounds like they'll be filmed back-to-back, because they're two parts of the same story, and they're coming out a year apart.

 

 

"Avengers:  Infinity Wars Part 1" will hit theaters in May of 2018 . . . and "Part 2" will be released the following May.

 

 

Also, the new "Captain America" movie featuring Iron Man will be called "Captain America:  Civil War" . . . so it WILL follow that storyline we'd heard about where Captain America and Iron Man fight over a government plan to register superheroes.

 

 

That one comes out in May of 2016.

 

 

In other big news we're finally getting a BLACK SUPERHERO MOVIE from Marvel.  "Black Panther" comes out in November of 2017, starring CHADWICK BOSEMAN in the title role.

 

 

He played JAMES BROWN in "Get On Up" and JACKIE ROBINSON in "42".

 

 

And an announcement I was thrilled to hear…Marvel also has a stand-alone FEMALE superhero movie in the works, "Captain Marvel", which comes out in July of 2018.  The hero in this one is Carol Danvers, who debuted in the 1970s as "Ms. Marvel".  No word who'll play her.

 

 

Still no SCARLETT JOHANSSON / Black Widow stand-alone flick . . . but Marvel says she's very much involved in the upcoming "Avengers" movies.

 

 

The third "Thor" movie, "Thor:  Ragnarok", comes out in July of 2017 . . . and yes, Loki will be back.  And "Guardians of the Galaxy 2" drops in May of 2017.

 

 

 

Jane Lynch Is Officially Divorced . . . And Officially Poorer

 

JANE LYNCH is officially DIVORCED . . . and officially POORER.  Her ex-wife Dr. Lara Embry cleaned up in the settlement.  For starters, she gets a lump sum of $1.2 million over the next two years.

 

 

She also gets HALF of the following:  Several bank accounts totaling $847,000 . . . a 401K totaling $315,000 . . . their $57,000 tax refund . . . and royalties from Jane's TV appearances, including "Glee".

 

 

She also gets FULL custody of their yacht club membership and their dog.

 

 

 

Amanda Bynes Is Still Not Ready to Be Released From Treatment

 

AMANDA BYNES is still not ready to be out of supervised care.  She was due to be released this week, but a judge ordered her to spend at least 30 more days under 24-hour psychiatric care.

 

 

Supposedly, Amanda is, quote, "very ill," and is in "no shape to care for herself."  She was placed on a 72-hour psychiatric hold on October 10th.  Her stay was then extended two weeks . . . and now she'll be there until Thanksgiving, at least.

 

 

Meanwhile, RadarOnline reports that Amanda's mother, Lynn, has officially petitioned to become her conservator once again.  In addition to putting her in control of Amanda, it would also put her in charge of her estate.

 

 

Amanda is worth $2.8 million . . . and earns $144,768 a year.

 

 

So, this is basically a repeat of last year:  Amanda was hospitalized against her will in July of 2013.  She was released last December under the care of her parents, and seemed to be doing well.  She even attended fashion school for a while.

 

 

But then she moved to New York and started exhibiting her typical BIZARRE behavior.  She got a DUI in late September . . . and followed it up with a pair of shoplifting attempts.

 

 

 

Nine Celebrities Who Have Unclaimed Money Owed to Them

 

If you were owed $10,000 from a bank, you'd probably get your hands on it as soon as possible.  But apparently STEVEN SPIELBERG considers it a pittance not worth bothering with.

 

 

The California state controller's office just released a list of celebrities who have unclaimed money owed to them, either by the state or by various companies.  And it's just sitting around waiting for them.  Here are some of the highlights . . .

 

 

Bank of America has $10,000 in cashier's checks waiting for Steven Spielberg.

 

Robert Downey Jr. is owed $497.09 from the California Substance Abuse Treatment Facility and State Prison.

 

Kanye West is owed $38.71 from Foot Locker.

 

Orlando Bloom can go pick up $31.72 from NBC Universal.

 

Columbus Short has small checks for him at Paramount, including ones for:  $94.29, $40.50, $43.85 and $43.85.   Short also has a warrant out for his arrest, because he skipped a court hearing on Monday.  He's accused of beating a guy up at a bar.

 

Kobe Bryant has a check for $482.50 collecting dust at the Connecticut General Life Insurance Company.

 

Justin Timberlake's lawyers owe him $3,020.55.

 

George Clooney is owed $928.95 from an entertainment company.

 

And Kerry Washington has $1,404.38 coming to her from a payroll company.
