Bar Refaeli's Pucker Power

By Renee Ghert-Zand

Who knew Bar Refaeli’s outré Super Bowl ad for Go Daddy would have such pucker power? HuffPo ran a piece on all the lucky guys the supermodel has smooched with, as well as another on nerdy Jesse Heiman who got to play tonsil hockey with her in the commercial. Hillel at Stanford University got in on the sexy action, too, by using an image from the televised spot to advertise its upcoming Birthright Israel trip.

Bar Refaeli’s ex-boyfriend Leonardo DiCaprio was seen last Friday goofing around in a Miami nightclub with buddies Jonah Hill, Gerard Butler, Bradley Cooper, and Mel Gibson (yes, Mel Gibson).

Also not on their best behavior over Super Bowl weekend were Drake and his friends, who were so rowdy that neighbors called the cops on them twice.

And in our last Super Bowl weekend-relate item, if Bar Refaeli’s Go Daddy ad wasn’t sexy enough for you, there’s this “2 Broke Girls” promo featuring Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs pole dancing.

“Oz: The Great and Powerful” co-stars Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz and Mila Kunis grace the cover of InStyle’s spring fashion issue. In an interview inside the magazine, Williams says she didn’t know who her now-boyfriend Jason Segel was before she started going out with him.

Watch Max Greenfield tell Anderson Cooper about how “Gangnam Style” is a huge hit with his 3-year-old daughter Lily and her friends.

We’ve all be reading a lot about Lena Dunham lately, but here’s a chance to get to know her boyfriend, Jack Antonoff of the Grammy-nominated band called “fun.”

Here is a fun preview item for those of you who can’t wait to see “Admission,” the new romcom starring Paul Rudd and Tina Fey. And here’s another.

In not-so-good news for Ricki Lake, her new talk show has been cancelled after just one season.

Costs a lot of money; She will enter school with the idea that being Jewish makes her different somehow instead of something that you do after or in addition to regular school. Maybe a Shabbat sing-along would be enough?"
