Jennifer Garner on Hugh Jackman sex scene: 'So horrifying'

We don't know if it was this scene in particular, or if Jennifer Garner and Hugh Jackman should just avoid sex scenes in general, but both stars seem to have been scarred by their sensual encounter in their upcoming indie "Butter."

Just as Jackman has said that he was beyond embarrassed after recording vocals for a sex scene with Garner, the actress relayed the same sentiment to E! News.

"Of course, it was like the first day we worked together," she said. "It's always like that. It's always like, 'It's nice to meet you, now let's moan and groan.'"

Candy Spelling wins $90k on Vegas slots

Talk about the 1 percent: Candy Spelling, the wealthy widow of TV producer Aaron Spelling, just won $90,000 at the slots in Las Vegas, according to TMZ.

Yes, the woman famous for having rooms devoted to gift wrap and dolls in her ginormous mansion (which she sold earlier this year) just hit it big. Candy, mom to Tori Spelling, won her latest jackpot on the high stakes slots at the Bellagio, which run from $100 to $1,000 per spin.

We say her latest jackpot because this seems to be Spelling’s most recent win. In 2007, the millionairess reportedly won $200,000 on the slots, and in 2008, she's said to have scored another $180,000! All three wins took place at the Bellagio.

Lea Michele on being a sex scene virgin

Despite the lackluster response some fans have had towards "Glee" lately, there's still plenty of anticipation for Tuesday's episode.

Two of McKinley High's favorite couples - Rachel Berry and Finn, as well as Kurt Hummel and Blaine - are "going all the way," if we were to put it in grade school terminology. (Two parents groups have already spoken out against the episode for portraying teen sex, Entertainment Weekly reports.)

CNN caught up with Lea Michele, who plays the super overachiever Rachel, at Glamour magazine's 21st annual Women of the Year awards, and she revealed that she and co-star Cory Monteith (Finn) had a pretty steamy time filming the scene. FULL POST
