Surely there's an Oz the Great and Powerful joke here somewhere. It seems out of all the lovely ladies in Hollywood, the one that most adult movie fans would like to see in a porno flick is none other than Mila Kunis. At least that's according to the latest (and Nsfw) Sex Tracker survey from XCritic.com and Vivid Entertainment. Of course, this is the very same survey which, just last month, found Jennifer Lawrence on top. This time around, though, the Oscar winner slipped to second with about 23 pecent of the vote compared to the 38 percent craving Kunis. Other gals who eventually may come from behind in future polls include Sofia Vergara (15 percent), Angelina Jolie (13 percent) »

Angelina Jolie has said that her family history prompted her to be tested for the genetic mutation that heightens a woman's risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer. The results—that she had an estimated 87 percent risk of breast cancer and a 50 percent risk of ovarian cancer—prompted her decision to undergo a preventive mastectomy, and she plans to have her ovaries removed in the near future as well. In revealing this week that she had the procedure, she wrote about losing her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, who died at 56 after battling ovarian cancer for a decade. But it turns out that the risk of illness has spanned generations on that side of Jolie's family. Australian magazine »
The 40-year-old comedian has been condemned by cancer campaigners after he made light of the 37-year-old's potentially life-saving double mastectomy breast operation, the Daily Star reported.
Just days later, he said: "An impossibly sexy woman, who campaigns against war, between playing gun-toting assassins, had her breasts cut off and resculpted to save her own life from cancer."

Well before the actress fought stigma by announcing that she had undergone the operation, she had worked to publicise the horrors of the Bosnian war
An article written by Hollywood actor Angelina Jolie provoked headlines around the world when she chose "not to keep my story private" and revealed she had undergone a double mastectomy to lower her risk of breast cancer, which was high due to her genetic inheritance. The impassioned letter, published in the New York Times, did not fit the stereotypical celebrity image. But Jolie's act of extraordinary courage didn't seem out of character at all to me. I already knew from my own experience that she was a woman of tremendous strength, focus and perseverance.
In the spring of 2010 I was working in Bosnia, tracking the movements of a war criminal not yet caught by the international criminal court, when I heard that Angelina Jolie was in nearby Foca. »

Concerns that firms' rights to hold patents on genes linked to breast cancer is pushing up cost of testing for disease
Angelina Jolie's decision to speak out about her decision to have a preventive double mastectomy was intended to highlight the terrible risks of breast cancer. But the film star's move also cast a spotlight on the far less known arena of patent battles over genetic technology which could have far more impact than Jolie's widely applauded move.
Before the end of next month the Us supreme court will issue a landmark decision in a case brought against the biotech firm Myriad Genetics, which is based in Utah, by the Association for Molecular Pathology.
The firm owns a patent on the BRCA1 gene, which Jolie carries and which is believed to carry a high risk of causing breast cancer. It also owns a patent on the similar BRCA2 gene. »

Angelina Jolie managed to keep her double mastectomy a secret from February 2, when procedures started, through April 27, when they were completed, and all the way until May 14, when she revealed everything. But some stars have kept their secrets even longer: Radar lists 18 of them. Janet Jackson put a rest to rumors last year that she was engaged to Wissam Al Mana ... by revealing that they were already married. Liv Tyler was born Liv Rundgren and always thought Todd Rundgren was her biological father—but it was actually another rocker, Steven Tyler . Jack Nicholson found out—after »

"It seemed like something somebody would make up," author Nancy Jo Sales says on the phone from her New York home. "If you had pitched this as a movie, nobody would've bought it. It would've been too unbelievable." But the story of a bunch of young suburbanites who burglarized a string of celebrity homes in 2008 and '09 did happen. And somebody did buy it — director Sofia Coppola, whose upcoming film "The Bling Ring" (out June 14) is inspired by the Hollywood crime spree. It's also the subject of Sales' new book, likewise titled "The Bling Ring."
Coppola hired Sales as a consultant on the film after optioning her 2010 Vanity Fair article, "The Suspects Wore Louboutins." Realizing she had enough material on the case for a book, Sales started writing "The Bling Ring" last summer. It hits bookstores next week.

1. Angelina Jolie Reveals She Had a Double Mastectomy
In an op-ed piece for the The New York Times, Oscar winning actress and mother-of-six Angelina Jolie reveals that she recently underwent a preventive double mastectomy.
In the article, the 37-year-old actress goes into great detail about how her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, fought breast cancer for almost a decade before dying from the disease at 56 years old.
After being told by doctors that she carried a "faulty gene" that increases the chances of breast and ovarian cancer -- with an estimated 87 percent risk of breast cancer and 50 percent risk of the latter -- Jolie decided to be proactive and have a double mastectomy.
Here are some excerpts from the article:
"Once I knew that this was my reality, I decided to be proactive and to minimize the risk as much I could. I made a decision to have a preventive double mastectomy »
She was facing down the most frightening challenge of her life, but on Valentine's Day of this year, Angelina Jolie was focused on nothing more than dinosaurs, bugs and precious family time. When the star visited the Natural History Museum in Los Angeles on Feb. 14 with fiancé Brad Pitt and their 4-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox, "the kids could barely contain themselves, but Brad and Angie spoke to them in quiet voices to calm them down," says an observer. "They stayed back and let the kids explore fossils and insects on their own. They all seemed to have fun." Before »

Looks like the Angelina Jolie leg has officially made its way to Cannes. Stunning Dutch model Doutzen Kroes rocked the red carpet Friday at the Cannes Film Festival, where she posed for a screening of The Past, flaunting her right leg a la Angelina at the 2012 Oscars. The blond beauty stunned in a pale pink dress from Atelier Versace's Fall 2012 collection, and she certainly wasn't afraid to show off the incredibly high-thigh slit. Kroes wore her hair in cascading curls to complement the keyhole cutout, revealing neckline and flashy pink sequins, looking fierce and feminine as she posed for the camera. The 66th annual Cannes Film Festival officially kicked off Wednesday with the »
Beyonce and Jay-z are expecting their second child together, E! reports, citing unnamed sources. The 31-year-old singer stoked speculation that she could be pregnant with baby No. 2 after canceling a tour date in Antwerp, Belgium, earlier this week because of "dehydration and exhaustion." Beyonce gave birth to the couple's firstborn, daughter Blue Ivy, in January 2012, spurring a media frenzy not seen since Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's twins arrived in July 2008. On May 6, the Grammy-winning diva walked the red carpet at the triple-vip, punk-themed Met Ball in New York City

In choosing, at least for now, not to have an oopherectomy, Jolie may have challenged medical advice – with justification
To understand just how brave Angelina Jolie is, consider what she did not write in her op-ed in The New York Times: her decision to have a mastectomy and forgo, at least for now, an oopherectomy (the removal of the ovaries), goes against common medical practice in the Us and, most likely, against most of the advice she received.
The mutation Jolie carries, a deletion on the BRCA1 gene, combined with a strong family history of cancer, correlates with an 87% risk of breast cancer and a 50% risk of ovarian cancer. Either cancer is likely to be very aggressive and lethal sooner rather than later. Breast cancer is, on average, likely to strike earlier than ovarian cancer.
A preventive mastectomy brings the risk of breast cancer down to between 2% and 5%, well below »
