Hey, Israelis! Today is Election Day, and Bar Refaeli and her celeb friends are telling you in this PSA video to get out and vote. When Maxim’s Hottest Woman Alive tells you to vote, you go vote.

Yesterday was Inauguration Day here in the US, and James Franco wrote a poem for the occasion.

And while we’re on the topic of James Franco, we’ll mention that he claims he did not intend any disrespect or put-down of Justin Bieber when he recorded and posted his parody of Bieber’s “Boyfriend.” If that is so, then we are indeed curious as to what his real intention was.

Over at the Sundance Film Festival, the cast of Jill Soloway’s “Afternoon Delight” held a raunchy conversation with Entertainment Weekly, and Harvey Weinstein talked politics before heading off to Washington for the Inauguration.

Drew Barrymore shared with Oprah that her mother did not attend her wedding to Will Kopelman and has not yet seen their baby daughter, Olive.

Elizabeth Banks, who had two children by surrogacy, has spoken out against unreasonable expectations for women’s bodies to bounce back quickly after pregnancy and childbirth.

It seems that in making up with Howard Stern, Lena Dunham has managed to tick off the entire city of Detroit.

“Facts of Life” actress Charlotte Rae is shopping around her memoir, which includes revelations of how devastated she was when her husband revealed to her that he was gay and had been cheating on her.

And in celeb sightings: Emmy Rossum was in Moscow for a screening of her new film, “Beautiful Creatures”; Jennie Garth was seen holding hands in Toronto with her new guy, musician Jeremy Salken; and Adam Sandler frolicked on the beach with daughter Sadie.
