Oscar winner Jeff Bridges' wife played a saucy prank on her husband while he was shooting a dream sequence on the set of cult 1998 movie The Big Lebowski - she asked dancing extras to stuff their leotards with fake pubic hair. The Crazy Heart star was required to glide through the open legs of the girls on a skateboard for the scene and during rehearsals he asked if he could chronicle the moment by taking photographs from the viewpoint of his character, The Dude.
The dancers were all more than willing, but little did Bridges know they were setting him up for a practical joke, courtesy of his wife, Susan, who was visiting the set.
He recalls, "I get on the skateboard and I get my camera ready and I look up. There, beneath the leotard, are these tufts of public hair... and as I go to the next lady's vagina, there's more tufts; it's like more ornate, and then the next one, there's more; it's a forest.
"What they had done is they went to the makeup man and they had crepe hair shoved in there."
Sam Smith was the toast of the 57th Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday (08Feb15), walking away with four of the six honors he was nominated for, including the coveted Record of the Year.
The British soul sensation kicked off his celebrations early after claiming the very first award of the televised show for Best New Artist. He soon followed it up with the Best Pop Vocal Album for In The Lonely Hour, and was back onstage towards the end of the Los Angeles ceremony to wrap up his big night with wins for Song of the Year and Record of the Year for Stay With Me.
Taking to the stage for the fourth time, Smith poked fun at the ex-boyfriend who inspired the album, saying, "This is the best night of my life. I wanna thank the man who this record is about... Thank you so much for breaking my heart because you got me four Grammys!"
Fellow six-time nominees Beyonce and Pharrell Williams each went home as triple winners, while Beck landed Best Rock Album and Album of the Year for Morning Phase - and almost had Kanye West repeat his infamous stage invasion at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, when he interrupted Taylor Swift to defend his pal Beyonce's honor. This time, the rapper approached Beck as he collected the Album of the Year accolade, which Beyonce was also nominated for, and pretended to head towards the mic, before laughing and returning to his seat in the front row - much to everyone's amusement.
AC/DC got the Grammy Awards off to a rocking start with a hits medley, while Madonna dazzled the Staples Center audience in a red and black matador costume to sing her new release Living For Love, and Rihanna, Kanye West and Sir Paul McCartney staged the first ever performance of their new collaboration, FourFiveSeconds.
Other performance highlights at the event, hosted by LL Cool J, came from Ed Sheeran and Electric Light Orchestra frontman Jeff Lynne; Katy Perry, who honored victims of domestic violence with a powerful rendition of By The Grace of God; Sam Smith and Mary J. Blige's soulful collaboration on Stay With Me, and Pharrell Williams, who gave his Happy tune a gospel makeover, complete with Hans Zimmer on guitar and Lang Lang on piano.

Did you get all that the 90s had to offer? If not then you need to get nostalgic and start binge-watching the best TV shows and movies of that decade. So if you want to look back on the bad fashion, the hot celebrities, the music and more, here are 20 things you need to watch that has it all.
This is definitely one of the most quotable movies of this decade. Watch clueless Cher (Alicia Silverstone) play match maker to multiple people around her.
2. Pulp Fiction
Every Quentin Tarantino fan would say this is a must! This classic follows four storylines including two mob men, a boxer, the wife of a mob man, and a couple of bandits.
3. Jurassic Park
Even in a post-Avatar world, this movie is impressive with its visual effects. If you never watched the original go back and watch Spielberg's take before watching the new reboot.
4. The Sixth Sense
It's been a while, so chances are someone might have spoiled the ending for you already, but trust us and watch it anyways. This scary and suspenseful movie makes it all worth it.
Warner Bros. Television/Giphy
Because of this show, and the beautiful Jennifer Aniston, was the reason so many women were asking for "The Rachel" in their hair salon. Get in late on the craze.
6. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
This show is proof that Will Smith has always been amazing. Alfonso Ribeiro also had people laughing and doing "The Carlton."
7. Boy Meets World
Michael Jacobs Productions/Giphy
We're sure you're already catching the syndication of this show on TV, but we couldn't leave it off our list! Watch Cory Matthews (Ben Savage) and those around him grow before your eyes through 7 seasons.
Need a show that understands your dating problems due to being neurotic? Look no further.
9. Dawson's Creek
You can't talk about this decade without acknowledging the show that gave us James Van Der Beek, Katie Holmes, and Michelle Williams. Can you?
10. Full House
Jeff Franklin Productions/Giphy
To this day people still quote little Michelle saying "You got it dude!" Watch Bob Saget being a single father of three and getting help from his friends.

Get in on the Buffy craze by watching her fight off evil vampires and demons with her friends.
12. Boyz n the Hood
Colombia Pictures Corporation/Giphy

Impact Zone Productions/Giphy

15. The Silence of The Lambs
Find out why "put the lotion in the basket" is so damn creepy. This thriller shows Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster), an F.B.I. agent seeking help from an incarcerated killer in order to catch a serial killer who skins people.
16. Fight Club
Fox 2000 Pictures/Giphy
Look back on Brad Pitt's beautiful frosted tips with this movie. Edward Norton plays an office worker who isn't getting any sleep. When he meets Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt) they end up switching things up by creating a fight club.
Forget about watching another sitcom with a seemingly perfect family. This show had working class people in the forefront and of course hilarious Roseanne Barr cracking jokes.
18. American Pie
This filthy franchise all started with four high school friends making a pact to lose their virginity. Have a fun looking at what Tara Reid was doing before Sharknado.
19. The Blair Witch Project
Thanks to this now we have Paranomal Activity, and many other "found footage" films. This movie shows three film students creating a documentary about a Blair Witch legend.
20. Dumb and Dumber
Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are very stupid, but very funny friends that go on a cross-country adventure.

Session guitarist Jeff Golub has died, just three years after losing his sight following the collapse of his optic nerve. The rocker, who worked extensively with Rod Stewart and fronted jazz band Avenue Blue, passed away on Thursday (01Jan15), aged 59.
Golub also appeared on all of Billy Squier's Capitol albums and toured with Stewart from 1988 to 1995.
His final album, Train Kept a Rolling, was released in 2013 and featured guests Christopher Cross and former Ambrosia leader David Pack.
Late last year (14), he was diagnosed with progressive supranuclear palsy - a rare degenerative brain disease, according to UltimateClassicRock.com.
Leading the tributes to Golub is saxophonist Dave Koz, who writes, "I love you, Jeffrey. Thank you for all you brought to our lives."
As obsessive readers and fans of dismissing quality movies as inferior to their literary counterparts, it's important for us to know which books will head to the big screen ahead of time. How else will we know how Wild Reese will be, or what is going to happen to Peeta? Be reasonable. We've decided to use our research for the good of society and share the adaptations coming soon that we are most excited for.
1. The Spook's Apprentice - Joseph Delaney (Seventh Son)
Thomas Ward (Ben Barnes) is the seventh son of the seventh son, which gives him the ability to see things that others cannot: ghosts, ghasts, boggarts, and the like. He becomes an apprentice to John Gregory, the Spook (Jeff Bridges). Julianne Moore is set to play Mother Malkin, one of the most sinister witches who uses blood magic, luring young runaway women into care before sucking their blood to maintain her youth, who was then imprisoned by the Spook. Kit Harington and Djimon Hounsou also star.
2. Fifty Shades of Grey - E.L. James
Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, in case you somehow didn't know, are stepping into the roles of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey for the adaptation of the incredibly successful erotic novel. Steele, a literature student, interviews Grey as a favor to her roommate, but quickly becomes entranced by this brilliant and handsome man who is unable to resist her. He admits his desire, but on his own terms; this is a man with a need to control everything. This is also probably going to be the movie with a bunch of heavy-breathing sweaty middle-aged women trying to control themselves in the theater. You've been warned.
3. In the Heart of the Sea - Nathaniel Philbrick
The last time Ron Howard and Chris Hemsworth teamed up, they brought us one of the best films of 2013, Rush. Now, they're at it again (along with Cillian Murphy and Benjamin Walker) with this story of a whaleship attacked by one angry whale, leaving the crew shipwrecked and stranded for 90 days, thousands of miles from land. The true story inspired a little book by Herman Melville (played in the movie by our favorite, Ben Whishaw) entitled Moby-Dick.
4. The Price of Salt - Patricia Highsmith (Carol)
W. W. Norton & Company
Patricia Highsmith, author of successful novels-turned-movies like Strangers on a Train and The Talented Mr. Ripley (we're choosing to ignore the recent The Two Faces of January here), wrote The Price of Salt, which will be released as 'Carol.' The novel itself, controversial for its lesbian content and unprecedented gay happy ending, is said to have inspired Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita. The film stars Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, and Sarah Paulson, with Far From Heaven and I'm Not There director Todd Haynes helming.
5. Dark Places - Gillian Flynn
Shaye Areheart Books
Gone Girl author brings us yet another chilling thriller. A young girl is the sole survivor of a massacre that leaves both of her sisters and her mother dead in an apparent Satanic cult ritual. She testifies against her brother, but 25 years later, she begins to investigate the actual events. Charlize Theron, Chloë Grace Moretz, Nicholas Hoult, and Christina Hendricks star.
6. A Walk in the Woods - Bill Bryson
Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants director Ken Kwapis is set to direct Bryson's memoir, starring Robert Redford and Nick Nolte. The hilarious book describes Bryson's attempt to walk the Appalachian Trail with his friend Stephen Katz. Emma Thompson and Parks and Recreation's Nick Offerman will also star.
7. Insurgent - Veronica Roth
As conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows, a war looms for Divergent's post-apocalyptic Chicago. In this sequel, we're still following Shailene Woodley and Theo James' Tris and Four as they try to understand the reasons for Erudite's insurrection and obtain information the Abnegation are trying to protect. Kate Winslet, Zoë Kravitz, Ansel Elgort, and Miles Teller return in their supporting roles, and are joined by some all-star names: Naomi Watts, Octavia Spencer, and Suki Waterhouse.
8. Serena - Ron Rash
The dynamic duo of mega-nominated movies Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle are back at it! Bradley Cooper plays a man trying to maintain his timber empire during the Depression, while Jennifer Lawrence plays his wife who discovers she can't have children. For some reason, we're a little terrified of JLaw in this movie from the trailer.
9. Silence - Shusako Endo
Taplinger Publishing Company
This 1966 novel about a Jesuit missionary sent to 17th century Japan where he endures persecution is set to be adapted by Martin Scorsese. It will also have an all star cast of Andrew Garfield, Liam Neeson, Ken Watanabe, and Adam Driver.
10. The Longest Ride - Nicholas Sparks
The producers of The Fault in Our Stars, the author of The Notebook, and the hottest Hollywood son around, this movie already has us in love with it. Scott Eastwood and Britt Robertson play two lovers and there's a rodeo or something; we don't really know, we were just thinking about how much this movie will make us cry. Time to read the book.
11. Far From the Madding Crowd - Thomas Hardy
The Hunt director Thomas Vinterberg tackles Thomas Hardy's novel. Carey Mulligan stars as Bathsheba Everdene, a woman who has too many men in love with her and of course rejects them all until she falls for one. Three men, played by Michael Sheen, Matthias Schoenaerts (Rust and Bone), and Tom Sturridge (On The Road), all after this woman: who will she end up with? We actually just read the plot description and had everything spoiled and somehow still gasped and cried at those three paragraphs. Why didn't we know about this book before?!
12. Paper Towns - John Green
The Fault in Our Stars author John Green's next book to be adapted by the same team who adapted TFIOS (Scott Neustadter & Michael H. Weber). Margo and her adventures are legendary at her high school, and Quentin ("Q") has always loved her for it. Margo climbs through his window and demands he take an all night road trip of revenge, but when she goes missing the next day, Q realizes she's left clues for him and promptly hits the road again in search of her. Cara Delevingne will play Margo and TFIOS' Nat Wolff will play Q.
13. The Revenant: A Novel of Revenge - Michael Punke
Carroll & Graf Publishers
Academy Award-nominated Alejandro González Iñárritu (Birdman, 21 Grams, Biutiful) is set to direct Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy in this adaptation. Partially based on the life of fur trapper Hugh Glass. Leo will play Glass, who is mauled by a bear, then later robbed and left for dead by his companions. He survives and sets out for revenge against those same men.
14. The Secret Scripture - Sebastian Barry
Faber and Faber
A one-hundred-year-old woman, Roseanne McNulty, in a mental hospital for about 50 years decides to retrace her history. As the hospital faces demolition and he must choose which of his patients should be transferred and which should rejoin the community, Dr. Grene also tries to discover her history. What they find is very different, though there are some consistencies. Vanessa Redgrave and Rooney Mara will play Roseanne McNulty, Eric Bana will play Grene, with Theo James also starring.
15. Frankenstein - Mary Shelley
An oft-adapted novel, Mary Shelley's classic is to be turned into yet another film, this time directed by Paul McGuigan (Lucky Number Slevin, Push). The updated version, titled Victor Frankenstein, will be told from the perspective of the doctor's assistant, Igor. The film will explain how the doctor became the man who created the legendary monster. Daniel Radcliffe will play Igor and James McAvoy will play Victor Frankenstein.
16. The Martian - Andy Weir
Crown Publishing Group
Described as Cast Away meets Apollo 13, the novel follows an astronaut stranded on Mars, fighting to survive (which also sounds mildly like Gravity to us, no?). Ridley Scott is set to direct a pretty stellar (no pun intended) cast here: Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Jeff Daniels, Kristen Wiig, Donald Glover, Kate Mara, and Chiwetel Ejiofor. This sounds like a great movie already, but we'll have to wait until November to see it.
17. The Jungle Book - Rudyard Kipling
Walt Disney Pictures is working on this live-action/CGI mash-up of the classic book, directed by Jon Favreau (Iron Man, Chef), with a mind-bogglingly incredible cast. Bill Murray, Idris Elba, Ben Kingsley, Christopher Walken, Scarlett Johansson, Lupita Nyong'o, and Breaking Bad's Giancarlo Esposito will provide voices, while newcomer Neel Sethi will play Mowgli.
Jack Black, Cedric the Entertainer, Rashida Jones, Kristen Bell and Bishop Desmond Tutu were among the celebrity pals who helped Scottish late-night host Craig Ferguson end his final Late Late Show by performing along to a song by Dead Man Fall, a band from the comic's native Cumbernauld in Scotland. Ferguson was also joined by the Sex Pistols' Steve Jones and a gospel choir in the studio as he wrapped up 10 years as the host of the programme earlier this week (ends19Dec14).
He ended the show by 'revealing' the man inside his mascot pantomime horse, who has appeared on the show for years, was comedy legend Bob Newhart.
The finale airs in America on Friday night, a night after fellow late-night host Stephen Colbert closed out nine years on his show The Colbert Report ended with an all-star sing-along, featuring Barry Manilow, Cyndi Lauper, Michael Stipe, James Franco and Jeff Daniels.
Fellow Brit James Corden will pick up the reins of the show in March (15).
Community is a perfect show. One of things that makes it so great is Abed Nadir (Danny Pudi). He is the glue that holds the study group together. His great imagination is the reason behind the shows' most interesting episodes, like the claymation Christmas episode. When you watch the show you enjoy this character, but have you ever wondered if you are him? It's time to finally answer this important question.

Former The Smiths drummer Mike Joyce made his acting debut in a radio play, which aired in the U.K. on Friday (28Nov14). The musician performed in 45-minute drama My Dad Keith alongside British actress Maxine Peake, who also wrote the play.
Joyce played a man called Jeff in a story about a mid-life crisis, teenage angst and drumming.
The rocker tells NME, "There's strength through family community and closure in the death of a family member, (but) it's very funny! There's a lot in it," adding that he accepted the role because, "it's not in my comfort zone and I'd find it quite challenging".
My Dad Keith aired on BBC Radio 4 on Friday.
Veteran actor Jeff Goldblum is a married man again after exchanging vows with his new fiancee on Saturday (08Nov14).
The Jurassic Park star proposed to actress/gymnast Emilie Livingston in July (14), while on vacation in Hawaii, and they walked down the aisle at Los Angeles' Chateau Marmont venue over the weekend.
Goldblum's representative has confirmed the news to UsMagazine.com, while a source tells the publication, "It was a night filled with love, music, and lots of laughs."
The actor, who, at 62, is 31 years older than Livingston, treated guests to a piano performance at the reception and also serenaded his blushing bride. The couple began dating in 2011.
The marriage is Goldblum's third - he was previously wed to his Silverado co-star Patricia Gaul and Geena Davis, who featured in his 1986 sci-fi horror The Fly.
Veteran musician Gregg Allman was named a living legend at the 2014 Classic Rock Roll Of Honour ceremony on Tuesday (04Nov14). The Allman Brothers star took the top award at the annual event, which was staged in Los Angeles for the first time to mark its 10th anniversary.
The Doors were given the prestigious Inspiration honour, Queen + Adam Lambert were named Band of the Year, and miracle man Wilko Johnson - who was recently given the all-clear after living with a terminal cancer diagnosis for more than 15 months - was awarded Album of the Year for his collaboration with Roger Daltrey, Going Back Home.
After he was announced as the winner of the Living Legend award, Allman said, "I am so very honoured to be receiving this award. The magazine is one of my favourites and they are always so generous to me and the Brothers."
Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich thanked fans via a video message after the band's concert movie Through The Never scooped Film of the Year, and rocker Ozzy Osbourne celebrated when his debut solo record Blizzard of Ozz was named Classic Album and his wife Sharon won the VIP award.
