Bar Refaeli may be numero uno on Maxim's Hot 100 list, but there's someone who may have that spot in their sights.
Stephen Colbert, host of "The Colbert Report," snagged the No. 69 spot on the "Hot" list, not only making him the only male out of the 100, but also placing him ahead of such beauties as Sofía Vergara (No. 71), Christina Hendricks (No. 77) and Pippa Middleton (No. 81).
In selecting Colbert, Maxim noted that "Democracy isn't always pretty: Sometimes it's downright handsome. With a massive write-in vote campaign, the Colbert Nation proved they're not only loyal but also incredibly horny."

When it comes to legendary singer Bob Marley, even his family learned some things thanks to a new documentary on his life.
"There was some stuff about when he was in Germany and his struggles with his illness, his process behind writing the songs, some of the issues he had with his skin color," his daughter Karen told CNN at SXSW. "It was pretty educational for me because he died when I was 8."
"Marley" was directed by Kevin Macdonald and was released in the U.S. Friday. The Jamaican singer-songwriter died in 1981 of cancer, but has an enduring legacy as a musical icon. FULL POST

Do not try and tell Kevin Hart that he's a scene-stealer in his new film, "Think Like A Man."
Despite the many ribald, laugh-out-loud moments his character has in the movie - which is based on the best-selling relationship guide for women by "Family Feud" host Steve Harvey - Hart insists it was a collaborative effort.
"I was very happy and privileged to work with the actors they cast, which helped to make it a smart movie, a universal movie," Hart said. "Together, everyone plays a role, and I just happened to have a role that was set up for a lot of laughs. But if you take those actors away, I don't have those moments."

The show's creator/director/star Lena Dunham didn't have to look far for material. The actress and "It" comedy girl of the moment sat down with CNN during SXSW and explained where she found the inspiration for her tales of a group of 20-somethings navigating life in the Big Apple.
"It's based on my life, it's based on the life of my friends, the life of my writing staff," she said. "It's sort of a hybrid of the experiences of many girls I know and love as they try to make their way in New York."

Joss Whedon doesn't just have fans among the world of geeks.
Three of the stars of his new film, "Cabin in the Woods," also think the "Buffy" impresario is pretty awesome. Anna Hutchison, Jessie Williams and Kristen Connolly sat down with CNN last month during SXSW and shared a bit of what it was like to work with Whedon, who co-wrote the horror film.
"You learn a lot as you go," Williams said. "I learned a lot about the hype around him, and how rightfully he deserves it. He made it fun." FULL POST
