There are so many beautiful Bond girls in the James Bond series, but Lana Wood definitely stands out as one of the sexiest. She plays Plenty O’Toole in “Diamonds are Forever” and has one of the all-time classic casino scenes. The film is set in the early 1970s, so we see the elegant James Bond hanging around the tacky Vegas casinos as he’s dressed in a white tuxedo jacket. Plenty O’Toole is a gorgeous gold digger who loves finding high rollers and she gravitates to Bond immediately at the craps table. She approaches Bond and we have a classic scene that’s often played out in Vegas, with a beautiful woman showing off her cleavage as she’s rolling the dice. You can see in these screen shots and the video below that she deserves her “Plenty” name. She’s a stunning brunette who can definitely fill out a dress. Go to Vegas any time and you’ll see all sorts of sugar babies looking for well-dressed men with plenty of cash.
She has another great scene in the hotel room after their craps adventure when she hooks up with Bond and is basically wearing nothing. Unfortunately for Plenty, she’s one of the many Bond conquests who end up dead in the early films as she was tossed out of the hotel window.
Watching Lana Wood as Plenty O’Toole playing craps with Sean Connery as James Bond reminds of us everything we love about gambling in casinos. It has the excitement of the casino games along with all the atmosphere of Las Vegas with a beautiful women in a low-cut dress. Now that’s entertainment! Of course things have changed and now you can get the thrill of winning on sites like uk.888casino.com, but it is pretty hard to replicate Lana Wood in that setting. That’s why places like Vegas will always be a huge draw.
Olivia Wilde is stunningly beautiful with her dark hair and blue eyes, and she’s probably never looked better than she did in “The Change-Up.” This recent romantic comedy also starring Jason Bateman, Ryan Reynolds and Leslie Mann is definitely worth a rental or purchase. It follows the very common body-switching story idea we’ve seen many times, but Bateman and Reynolds do a great job with the characters. Wilde plays a beautiful lawyer and has some very sexy scenes in the movie.
Unfortunately, this movie commits the serious and growing crime of CGI nudity!
But if you ask me, the single greatest crime of the Digital Effects Era is more subtle, and yet also more profound. I’m talking about fake movie nudity, which first made headlines last year with Jessica Alba’s shower scene in Machete. Last night, omnipresent film beauty Olivia Wilde swung by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to chat about Cowboys & Aliens, but the conversation took a tangent when she started discussing her other upcoming release, The Change-Up. The movie features a shot of the actress nude, but Wilde explained that the offending bits were all added in post-production. “I wasn’t actually naked, but now I appear naked. They CGI’d me naked.” Apparently, the scene as filmed featured a shot of Wilde’s “pasties” — adhesives that actors use to cover up their private bits during nude scenes. The studio cheerily opted to paint in nipples, which is coincidentally exactly how my fifth-grade friends made X-Men comics more emotionally compelling. Wilde even got to pick her own nipples!
Perhaps this wasn’t planned so it can be excused to some extent. Olivia has been nude in other movies. But it’s still just so wrong! But, she also looks amazing in a thong in this film, so don’t let the CGI spoil it for you. Here’s the trailer:

The beautiful Olivia Wilde was presented with an interesting award at the Toronto International Film Festival and we have some great photos from the red carpet. IMDb presented her with their first-ever “STARmeter Award,” which is a fan-favorite award that recognizes stars who are perennial favorites on IMDb’s STARmeter chart. This is determined by the actual search behavior of IMDb’s more than 160 million monthly users worldwide. So she’s talented and hot, and of course she’s searched a lot. IMDb CEO and Founder Col Needham introduced the award and writer/director Paul Haggis. Olivia is wearing an elegant dress as she shows off her amazing legs and pretty feet in high heels.
Jill St. John is definitely one of the iconic Bond babes with her role as Tiffany Case in “Diamonds are Forever.” She appears as a blonde, then a brunette and then finally as a redhead in this film, while sporting all sorts of sexy outfits from bikinis to lingerie. Bullz-Eye.com takes a look back at this 1971 Bond film, the last one for Sean Connery before giving way to Roger Moore.
“Diamonds are Forever” is now available on Blu-ray so you can enjoy the beautiful Jill St. John in amazing high definition.
Bradley Cooper’s new film, “Silver Linings Playbook,” is getting some great reviews, and a bunch of stars joined Cooper at the Weinstein Company’s “Silver Linings Playbook” special event with Lexus and Purity Vodka at the Chateau Marmont in LA. Co-star Robert De Niro was among the guests as you can see in the slideshow above, along with Zoe Saldana, Naomi Watts, Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Mel Gibson, Christian Slater, Thomas Jane, Dermot Mulroney, Josh Brolin, Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart. The drinks were flowing as the guests enjoyed various martinis made with Purity Vodka. Zoe Saldana and Naomi Watts looked great as you can see above.
Check out the trailer. Unfortunately we didn’t see any pics of co-star Jennifer Lawrence at the event, but the others seemed to have a great time.
We’re huge fans of Amber Heard, and we were very disappointed to see “The Playboy Club” cancelled. Amber has a classic look, and she looks amazing in the hair and clothes of the late 50s and early 60s.
Now we’ll get another chance to see her in that period with “The Rum Diary” opening at the end of the month. Of all the new movies coming out, this movie definitely has our attention. Amber Heard looks amazing as you can see above, and Johnny Depp is perfect for the Hunter S. Thompson story that will certainly set up some bizarre scenes. And then there the classic C1 Corvette convertible. We love movies that are visually appealing, and this one looks like a winner as it’s set in Puerto Rico and it’s beautifully shot. It’s the kind of movie that begs to be seen on the big screen at places like the Leicester Square cinema.
Heard has been getting more and more roles, and this film can definitely help her career if it’s a success. Even though her TV series got cancelled, she was very good in it so it shouldn’t hurt her. Hollywood always needs blonde starlets, so she’s looking at a great career over the next several years.
The show featured Minka Kelly, Annie Ilonzeh and Rachael Taylor as the three new angels. Minka Kelly is beautiful and she seemed like the perfect new version of the Jaclyn Smith character, but the show didn’t have anyone to fill the blonde bombshell role occupied by Farrah Fawcett and then Cheryl Ladd.
The show was mostly filmed in the city of Miami so this is a blow to that area. The concept was a good one, and Miami Beach offered an ideal setting, but it just didn’t come together.
Minka Kelly looks like a star, so I expect to see her get many more chances to carry a series. The other two actresses did a fine job as well, but perhaps the expectations here were too high.
