11 Football Movies Better Than the Super Bowl

"This is for Rudy, Coach." *sobs*


The Super Bowl is upon us, which means millions of people will be emotionally investing in the man-on-man performance of football.

Despite being a child of a die-hard sports fan whose identity hinged upon the successes and failures of his favorite organization (the Cleveland Browns, I sh*t you not–can you imagine an entire lifetime of being fanatical over the Cleveland Browns?), I don't understand the hype around football.

Just when you thought things couldn't get any messier...

According to TMZ, and BIlly Bob Thornton, Johnny Depp has it all wrong about the 61 year old hooking up with Amber Heard.

The latest development follows on from yesterday's goulish revelations that Depp CUT OFF THE TIP OF HIS FINGER during and argument, dipped it in paint, and then scrawled accusations of his wife's cheating with Thornton on a mirror.

"Starring Billy Bob Easy Amber"TMZ

Now as we all know, six times married Billy Bob is no stranger to the ladies, but he is outright denying Johnny's claim that he hooked up with Amber when they were filming their upcoming movie London Fields.

Thornton tells TMZ that not only are the allegations that they slept together "completely false", but that he wasn't even particularly friends with Heard during filming, and certainly never met up with her off set. It was all professional and that was that.

There's a sort of delightful twisted irony here though. Billy Bob previously married Angelina Jolie who he met when they co-starred on a movie—the fact he was engaged to actress Laura Dern at the time didn't seem to be a factor so he's definitely got previous when it comes to his co-stars. Jolie and Thornton famously wore a vial of each other's blood around their necks, so it seems only fitting that Depp would smear his accusations against Thornton in blood.

Billy Bob has had to do some fast talking to his current wife of two years, Connie Angland, reassuring her that the only contact he had with Heard off set was a cast dinner, and that the rest is just "Johnny's fantasy".

The messy finger injury caused the Pirates of the Caribbean set that Depp was working on in Australia at the time to be shut down for four weeks while he had his finger tip repaired—at the time it was described as an "on set injury".

It's not only Johnny's finger that's messy, the whole divorce is getting more bizarre by the day. With new lawyers being hired, the timely release of videos showing a drunken Depp, accusations of infidelity, abuse, paranoia and drug taking.....grab the popcorn and sit back!

Hugh Jackman's wife, Deborra-Lee Furness revealed in an interview that she has banned her hunky hubby from working with Angelina Jolie!

The 59 year old actress who has been married to the Wolverine star for nearly 20 years disclosed during the interview with Australia's Today Show;

“I’ve told his agent he’s not allowed to work with Angelina [Jolie], I’m sure she’s very nice and I love what she’s doing — shining a light on awareness for adoption…”

Given that Hugh has had steamy scenes with the likes of hot babes Scarlett Johansson and Ashley Judd (neither of whom are notorious husband stealers), it seems very clear that Mrs Jackman's issue doesn't lie with her husband.

Deborra-Lee quickly added a little "no I'm just kidding" to the end of her comment and Hugh gave a nervous laugh—but the speed of her response speaks volumes...

Check out the video, around the 1min 35 second mark;

We have to say we don't blame her—much as you may trust your husband, there are limits to a man's (or woman's for that matter) ability to resist when presented with the likes of Angie in full on seduction mode.

The Aussie couple have one of the most enduring marriages in showbusiness, and aside from the Angelina rule they made a pact from the start to never spend more than two weeks apart—something they stick to because they actually really enjoy each other's company and don't want to be without the other one for too long.

The 46 year old actor said;

"Deb had been on enough sets to see the was my first job when we met, I didn't know anything else but we've never been apart for more than two weeks.  We've managed to keep that."

His wife added;

"And we don't wanna be [apart] - he tells really good jokes and I miss him."

Well it obviously works for them—their secret is family first. They revealed that the whole family, including children Oscar, 14, and Ava, 9, will be in Australia for the next few months. The interview was recorded for breakfast TV before the couple's Adopt Change fundraiser in Melbourne on Wednesday.

Angelina Jolie on the other hand, may seem to have it all—beauty, wealth and a devoted family, but she has revealed in the past that the one thing she lacks are female friends.  This may be due to her reputation as a vamp/husband stealer—lets face it would you make friends with someone with her history?

She famously snared Brad Pitt while they were working together on Mr & Mrs Smith whilst he was still married to Jennifer Aniston.  They both always maintained they hadn't fallen in love until after Brad's marriage to Jen was over, but then Angelina revealed in an interview with Vogue that they had in fact fallen in love during the making of the movie and then astoundingly offered to meet up with Jen to have a good chat!.  Aniston laughed off the offer and said at that time;

"There was stuff printed there that was definitely from a  time  when I was unaware that it was happening.  I felt those details were a little inappropriate to discuss. That stuff about how she couldn't wait to get to work every day? That was really uncool."

Prior to that Angelina was married Billy Bob Thornton from 2000-2003, their wedding came as somewhat of a surprise to his finance at the time, Laura Dern.  Laura had gone off to make a move and then read in the tabloids that her fiance had eloped with Ms Jolie.  Dern has said;

"I left our home to work on a movie and while I was away, my boyfriend got married, and I’ve never heard from him again.”

Maybe it would be a little safer to let your husband film with Angelina these days—Angie and Brad married last August and quite frankly who the hell has the time to seduce someone's husband when you are juggling a film career, humanitarian work and six children?!

Plus her and Brad do seem pretty happy.  She has gushed;

"Brad has expanded my life in ways I never imagined. We built a family. He is not just the love of my life, he is my family. I hold that very dear. I suppose what I’ve learned from Brad is to be able to have the kind of family whose happiness and well-being comes before your own.  I’m very, very grateful to have such a loving family, and I wouldn’t have that without him."

Break ups are painful, it’s a sad time for all involved but generally you at least have an inkling that all may not be well in relationship paradise

Not so for Mrs Morgan Deane Smith, wife of England cricket star Graeme Smith.

He had allegedly told his wife he wanted to work on their marriage, so imagine her shock when she received a text message he had accidentally sent to her instead of his lawyer saying he wanted a divorce!


She’s not the only one to have been blindsided by a break up – here are some celebrities who just didn’t see it coming.

1. Real Housewives Of Atlanta star Porsha Williams claimed she only found out via twitter that ex hubby Kordell Stewart was divorcing her in 2013. Still she recovered from her shock and devastation by moving on with a mystery married sugar daddy who didn’t take kindly to her bragging all over Instagram about the fabulous life he was providing for her – he dumped and cut her off without warning.

Popdust’s word of advice Porsha – stay away from social media.

2. In 1998 Minnie Driver was happily dating Matt Damon – or so she thought. Settling down to watch her beau on Oprah she was more than a little taken aback to hear his response when Oprah asked him about his girlfriend. He denied he was in a relationship which came as a bit of a shock to Minnie who said;

“It seemed like a good forum for him to announce to the world that we were no longer together, which I found fantastically inappropriate”.

Popdust’s advice to Minnie – boycott Oprah and any Bourne Identity movies to be on the safe side.

3. Poor Richie Sambora, whilst (he thought) happily married to Heather Locklear in 2006 he was on stage and nipped off during the gig to do a prearranged radio interview. The interviewer asked him about a breaking story that Heather had just filed divorce papers in court in LA. He called the report completely untrue and wasn’t upset or fazed, treating it as the usual celebrity BS rumor. He went on to talk about his upcoming Valentine’s Day plans to be at home with his wife and kid. Sadly for Richie he was single come V-Day as completely unbeknownst to him, the rumor was true.

Popdust’s advice to Richie – always insist on having your wife in the audience at the gig so she can’t be sneaking down the courthouse and always have very firm holiday plans.

4. Laura Dern was living with fiancé Billy Bob Thornton when she left their home to work on a movie. She said;

“While I was away my boyfriend got married (to serial husband stealer Angelina Jolie) and I’ve never heard from him again.”

Popdust’s advice for Laura – maybe don’t get engaged to be someone’s fifth wife and advice to ALL women – never let your husband work with Angelina.

5. The marriage of Katy Perry and Russell Brand was never going to get very good odds for longevity, but even Katy was somewhat surprised to receive a text message from Brand saying he was divorcing her on New Years Eve 2011.  That was it. No explanation, no softening the blow.

Popdust’s advice to Katy –stay away from the serial narcissistic womanizers. (However, considering she’s now dating John Mayer for the second time, clearly she hasn’t learned.)

6. Everyone thought Tom Cruise would be the one to do the dumping of Katie Holmes when she’d passed her use by date (just as he did with Nicole Kidman). Imagine his surprise to find himself served with divorce papers in 2012 when Katie was away appearing in a play in New York. Five days before his 50th birthday – ouch!

Popdust’s advice to Tom – karma’s a bitch.


Last word of advice from Popdust to Graeme Smith – always store your lawyer’s number way away from your wife’s on your phone.
