'Girls' actress: No nude scenes for me

One of the stars of HBO’s controversial new show “Girls” is vowing not to get naked on the show.

Though Allison Williams’ cast mate Lena Dunham has already been shown in a few, er, compromising positions so far this season, Williams told New York magazine's Vulture that if you’re waiting for her to take it all off you’ll be waiting an awful long time.

“Uh, I’m not planning on getting naked,” the actress said during a recent interview, although she couldn't get into the details of how that's written into her contract.“But, yeah, I’m not planning on it.”

Hillary Clinton lets Jason Segel down easy

Fans are still waiting to meet the mom on "How I Met Your Mother," but (spoiler alert?) it's not going to be Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

"How I Met Your Mother" star Jason Segel says he's been pulling for Clinton to portray the mysterious titular mom on the series when he's asked about the character on red carpets, and has even said that he wants to make a movie with her (title? "Sarah Marshall 2: This Time It's Personal").

But Clinton's since politely declined his offer with a rejection letter, as the actor explained to Jimmy Fallon last week.

MTV reveals nominees for 2012 movie awards

"Bridesmaids" was one of the most talked about movies of 2011, and we're betting it's going to get more shine this summer. (If only so we can play the drinking game!)

MTV has announced the nominees for this year's MTV Movie Awards, and, like best movie lists before it, "Bridesmaids" is among the nominees for "Movie of the Year."

That category also happens to be a three-way fandom smackdown between "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2," "The Hunger Games" and "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1." (The fifth film up for the award is "The Help.")

So, just how 'nontraditional' is Jessica Simpson's baby name?

While we were waiting (and waiting) for Jessica Simpson to have her baby girl, we learned an interesting tidbit about the name the singer and her fiance Eric Johnson had picked out for their first child.... namely that it was to be "nontraditional."

"It's nothing shocking and nothing you'll have to add to the dictionary," she told Elle magazine in its April issue. "Still, when people hear it, they'll know...why."

But when the big day arrived and we heard that 31-year-old Simpson had named her daughter Maxwell Drew (rumored to be called "Maxi" for short), we'll admit we still required an explanation.
