What a difference a misplaced clump of hair makes! Let’s hope their new show does sufficiently well in the ratings to justify a hairpiece budget. Some things are best left behind on the set when the cameras stop rolling, don’t you think?
Conservation International and Harrison Ford have banded together to deliver a compelling public message – if you want Harrison Ford to stop inflicting excruciating pain on himself, then please consider saving the rainforests:
Harrison Ford pulled a Steve Carell for a public service announcement: He gets his chest waxed. The 65-year-old star winces in apparent pain as a strip of hair is yanked from between his pecs for a PSA for Conservation International to raise awareness about the effect of deforestation on global warming.
The actor, who doesn’t typically appear in such TV spots, sits on the board of directors of the Washington-based environmental organization.
Conservation International CEO Peter Seligmann said Ford was game to do the 30-second spot, and approved of the waxing concept.
“I didn’t have to talk him into anything,” Seligmann said at a news conference Tuesday in Manhattan. “I was there when he filmed it. It really hurt. There’s nothing about the expression on his face that was fake.”
The classic scene from 2005′s “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” — in which Carell screams out “Kelly Clarkson!” during his chest hair removal — was intentionally hilarious. Ford’s message, however, is serious: “Every bit of rain forest that gets ripped out over there, really hurts us over here.”
It’s a clever idea but given the enormity of the problem, let’s up the ante and really give people something to remember shall we? I’m thinking a bucket of hot wax and Andy Garcia’s lush manjungle ought to do the trick.
Sometimes there’s no knowing what will happen when you ask your overpriced hairstylist for ”a trim and some layers”. That’s when someone as understanding as Mary J Blige comes in handy – she’ll provide a comforting shoulder for you to cry on and better still, hide your mangled mane in. See what a difference having a good friend makes!

Fans of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series are in for a treat when the Colour of Magic airs in Britain over Easter, featuring Sir David Jason, Sean Astin and a guest appearance by Jeremy Irons, no less:
Fans of iconic actor Jeremy Irons will be pleased to hear he has a perfect cameo role in the new Terry Pratchett TV adaptation.
The Oscar-winner, 59, will play The Patrician alongside Sir David Jason as ex-student wizard Rincewind in Sky One’s The Colour Of Magic, to be shown at Easter.
Speaking at the show’s star-studded premiere, author Terry Pratchett revealed he was very involved in the production and had even rewritten part of the script when he knew Jeremy, his “first choice” for the part, had got it.
“They phoned me to say who should play The Patrician and they chose the one I wanted. When I knew it was Jeremy, I changed the script because I knew how he would enunciate ‘now what should I do with you, you little scamp?’” he said.
Fans of The Simpsons however, will have to wait until a live action movie is planned before they can lobby for his casting in the all-important role of Ned Flanders.
