Rolling Stone goes mad for 'Mad Men'

While just about everyone knows who they are now, there was a time when the entire cast of “Mad Men” were relative unknowns.

Rolling Stone talks to the actors about that rise from obscurity and delves into the hotness that is the AMC critically acclaimed show in a new “Mad Men” cover story due to hit the stands on September 1.

Accompanied by a set of black and white, behind the scenes photos, the article tells the tale of the three seasons of the smash show which made celebrities out of its stars. "If Rob Lowe had been cast in the part, it would have been different," Jon Hamm, who plays Don Draper, told the magazine. "There was no back story with me."

Sandra Bullock: Everything works out

After laying low for the better part of 2010, Sandra Bullock gave her first televised, sit-down interview on the "Today" show this morning.

The philanthropist and new mom to adopted son Louis, who Bullock calls a “little Cajun cookie,” spoke with Matt Lauer in New Orleans about life after her split with Jesse James.

However, the motorcycle mogul’s name wasn’t mentioned during Lauer’s time with Bullock. Instead, the “Today” host focused on the new man in Bullock’s life: her son.

Time to take a survey on 'Bachelor Pad'

Last night's episode of "Bachelor Pad" began with Wes complaining again about Gia's elimination and the fact that no one was being genuine. David tells Wes to shut up.  Wes then contemplates challenging David to a boxing match.

The bell rings, and there's a survey at the door.  The contestants are asked to fill out the survey about what they think of the competitors.  Census gone wild.  As you might expect, the questionnaire is part of the next contest.

It's competition time, and Chris and Melissa channel their inner Richard Dawson (though Chris seems to be dressed like Bob Eubanks circa 1987) by playing something resembling "Family Feud".  Contestants must decide which player topped various survey questions.  And what were some of these questions? Naturally, who's the most shallow and who's the dumbest.

Lindsay Lohan: I want my career back

Vanity Fair caught up with Lindsay Lohan at the moment her world was spiraling in a legal tailspin, about one week before she started her jail sentence for violating probation from a 2007 drunk driving case.

So with her legal problems fresh on her mind, the 24-year-old star had quite a bit to say about her career plans, the mistakes she's made and the rumors that she has a substance abuse problem - insinuations that she denounces in the interview with Vanity Fair.

“If I were the alcoholic everyone says I am, then putting a [SCRAM] bracelet on would have ended me up in detox, in the emergency room, because I would have had to come down from all the things that people say I’m taking and my father says I’m taking,” she told the magazine in an interview that will appear in the October issue. “So that says something, because I was fine.”
