Bindi Irwin Advocates 'Young Girls Dressing Their Age'; Caitlin Stasey Makes An Opposing Case

24 June 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Bindi Irwin, the daughter of late Steve IrwinThe Crocodile Hunter,” recently spoke out about how her young contemporaries dress – and how she believes they should consider covering up more.

Bindi Irwin On Teenage Modesty

Irwin, 15, dresses relatively modestly and believes girls her age should follow suit. Not only does she believe that teens trying to dress older actually make themselves look younger, she claims to feel badly for them.

“I’m a big advocate for young girls dressing their age,” Irwin told News Corp Australia. “I mean, for me, I look around at a lot of young girls that are my age and they’re always trying to dress older. Whether it’s wearing revealing clothes or hardly wearing any clothes at all, I feel really bad for them. It kind of has the opposite effect in some ways … it makes you look younger and like you’re trying too hard. »

Everything mentioned from 2006 and 2007 in VH1's 'I Love the 2000s'

21 June 2014 10:59 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Well, we’re getting into the weird part. Considering that 2006 and 2007 were mere blinks ago, the idea of revisiting these years via VH1′s rose-colored nostalgia goggles is certainly an unsettling one.

But oh, has I Love the 2000s officially gone off the rails since its promising beginning. None of the topics discussed in Friday’s two-parter seemed even remotely worth visiting—is anybody clamoring to discuss Flavor And Rock of Love? In fact, the mere presence of “bacon” and “putting Mentos in Diet Coke” as nostalgic references should signify that they’re really digging deep here to try and »

Ten Deadliest Snakes With Nigel Marven | World Cup: Uruguay v England | George Clarke's Amazing Spaces | Clydebuilt: The Ships That Made the Commonwealth | Celebrity MasterChef | Fostering and Me With Lorraine Pascale | Playhouse Presents Timeless | Mock the Week

For the first of serpent expert Nigel Marven's new series, he heads to Costa Rica, which has a larger range of deadly snakes than seems strictly fair. Thankfully, the Costa Rican anti-venom business appears to be going great guns. Almost as gung-ho with his handling of such creatures as the late Steve Irwin one has to presume he knows what he's doing he grabs hold of any snake he sees with a zesty enthusiasm, including the terciopelo pit viper, which is responsible for half the bites in the country.

Animal Planet’s ‘Blood Lake: Attack Of The Killer Lampreys’ Trampled By Mermaid Faux-Docus, With 1.2 Million Viewers

29 May 2014 9:12 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Animal Planet’s first plunge into the B-horror-movie genre with Blood Lake: Attack Of The Killer Lampreys, from the producers of Syfy’s Sharknado, premiered with fewer viewers – 1.2 million on Sunday to Sharknado’s opening 1.37 million back in July of ‘13 – and not nearly the same buzz. More to the point, Killer Lampreys fell far short of the 3.6 million viewers who’d watched Animal Planet’s second mermaid faux-docu, Mermaids: The New Evidence, on comparable Sunday one year earlier.  That was Animal Planet’s biggest audience. Ever. New Evidence was a follow-up to the previous year’s mermaid faux-docu, Mermaids: The Body Found which netted 3.4 million viewers and was, until it got trumped by its sequel, Animal Planet’s biggest draw since its September 2006 memorial to on-air talent Steve Irwin (2.7 million viewers), who died after being pierced in the chest by a stingray barb while filming an underwater documentary.

what’s on Captain America’s catch-up list… and what *should* be on it?

6 April 2014 10:19 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is now open almost everywhere around the planet — the last big region that hasn’t seen it is Japan, where the film opens on April 19th — and two things are becoming plain. One, the movie is huge: it looks to have earned around $96 million in North America this weekend, which makes it the biggest April opener ever; in the U.K., the film earned just over £6 million over its first weekend (which was last weekend), the second biggest opening of 2014 and more than twice what Captain America: The First Avenger debuted with in 2011.

And two: Steve Roger’s cultural disconnect is a little bit different depending on which country you see the film in.

One of the most charming things about Chris Evans’ man out of time, as I noted in my review, is the little list he’s keeping of the most important things »

Check Out Captain America's Different Cultural Catch-Up Lists Plus Lindsay Lohan Says She Was Almost In 'Avengers' & More

1 April 2014 6:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In a few days Steve Rogers is back in theaters in the U.S. with "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," and with that comes a variety of interesting tidbits not only about the film, but about what's coming down the line too. But first up is a bit of trivia and a peek into how Marvel ensures their movies resonate with audiences around the globe. In the opening scenes of 'The Winter Soldier,' the frozen in time and recently thawed Captain America reveals the list of pop culture things he needs to catch up with. Except, that as Slashfilm points out, that list differs from territory to territory. So up above you have the U.S. list, while below you can see the U.K. version that swaps in The Beatles, World Cup Final (1966) and Sean Connery. And around the world, there are tweaks to fit local culture. In France, »

'Wild Things'' Dominic Monaghan talks pet black widows and buffalo wings

25 March 2014 8:49 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Dominic Monaghan's agent is worried. After all, his client frolics with venomous snakes, spiders and other creepy crawlies on his show "Wild Things With Dominic Monaghan (second season premieres Tues. March 25 at 10:00 p.m. Et on BBC America), which sounds like a career-ending accident waiting to happen. "But it's his job to worry," Monaghan told me during our interview. "I have much more knowledge on the natural world than he does."  Monaghan has much more knowledge about the natural world than most of us, and he's not worried at all. Still, as the show goes "bigger" this season, there will be more danger and yes, a little more blood. Here's what Monaghan had to tell me about the biggest mistake people make about exotic creatures, how he keeps his black widow spider, and the dangers of buffalo wings. The press release for the show promises "more blood" this season. »

'Crocodile Hunter' Steve Irwin's cameraman reveals his last words

10 March 2014 10:00 PM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

It's been nearly eight years since Steve Irwin's death from a a stingray attack, in which his heart was punctured. Only now is his camera man and friend, Justin Lyons, speaking out on exactly how the tragedy unfolded.

He says the stingray attacked while he was ready to film it swimming away. "All of a sudden it propped on its front and started stabbing wildly with its tail, hundreds of strikes in a few seconds," he tells Australia's "Studio 10." "It probably thought that Steve's shadow was a tiger shark, which feeds on them very regularly."

At first Lyons didn't think anything was wrong and his camera followed the animal. "It wasn't until I panned the camera back, that Steve was standing in a huge pool of blood, that I realized something had gone wrong," he remembers.

He also says reports that the stingray barb was pulled from Irwin's chest are incorrect, »

“This one was extraordinarily large. It was 8-foot-wide. Massive,” said Lyons. “Stingrays are normally very calm. If they don’t want you to be around them, they’ll swim away. They’re very fast swimmers.”
