Matt Damon Reveals His Hidden Superpower
Yahoo News - over 3 years
Throughout Matt Damon’s two decades as a Hollywood leading man, he’s portrayed characters that run the gamut of verbosity—from the monologue-prone, savant janitor Will Hunting in Good Will Hunting, to the mostly mute, speaks-with-his-fists amnesiac assassin Jason Bourne in the Bourne trilogy. Last month, at the Environmental Media Awards, Damon proved to be far more Bourne than Hunting when asked by Pivot during the red carpet arrivals to name the superpower he’d want to have if were a green superhero. Actresses Malin Ackerman (Rock of Ages), Darby Stanchfield (Scandal), and Amy Smart (Starsky & Hutch) said they would want the ability to “stop climate change.” Former Quantum Leap star Scott Bakula said his power of choice would be to eradicate “all the plastic” that swirls in the Great Pacific Ocean Garbage Patch.

Celebrities Demand Obama, State Officials Ban Fracking Now
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The campaign to end fracking just got star-studded. In a series of videos calling for an end to fracking, celebrity environmental advocates demanded several elected officials explain “what the frack” they’re thinking by supporting the controversial gas- and oil-extracting process. Celebrities including Marisa Tomei, Darren Criss, Lance Bass, Daryl Hannah, Amy Smart, Hayden Panettiere and Wilmer Valderrama star in the videos calling out President Obama and governors Jerry Brown of California, Andrew Cuomo of New York and John Hickenlooper of Colorado for not banning fracking. Governor Brown recently signed into law California's first fracking regulations, requiring oil companies to obtain fracking permits, alert neighbors, test groundwater, publicly disclose chemicals used and study the fracking's environmental impact. But environmental activists say the practice needs to be banned outright. Governor Cuomo is currently weighing whether to ban or allow fracking, prompting env ...

'Keystone Horror' Spoofs Controversial Pipeline; Features Celebrities (VIDEO)
Huffington Post - over 3 years
A video against the controversial Keystone XL pipeline is comparing the project to a horror movie, taking viewers through the dark discoveries of an innocent family. The trailer titled "Keystone Horror," a spoof of the 1979 "Amityville Horror" film, stars Amy Smart, Justin Chatwin, Wendie Malick and Ed Begley Jr. and is created by environmental group 350.org and True Climate Stories, Mother Nature Network reports. It documents the journey of a family moving into a new home near the construction of a pipeline. "The perfect family. The perfect home. One huge mistake," states the video, before the family discovers hidden horrors of the home in true horror-movie fashion. "This is just a movie, but climate change is very real," says the description of the video. The pipeline, if approved, would carry 800,000 barrels of oil a day from Alberta across six U.S. states to the Texas Gulf Coast. U.S. President Barack Obama is expected to issue a final decision later this year or in 2014 on ...

Keystone XL Spoof Features Celebrities Against Controversial Pipeline (VIDEO)
Huffington Post - over 3 years
From Mother Nature Network's Michael d'Estries: Halloween may have come and gone, but for activists fighting the Keystone XL pipeline, every day the project is allowed to exist portends a terrifying future for the environment. To convey such frightening prospects, environmental group 350.org recently gathered Amy Smart, Justin Chatwin, Wendie Malick and Ed Begley Jr. to film a horror trailer on the Keystone. Titled "Keystone Horror," the trailer is a spoof on the 1979 "Amityville Horror" film. Instead of a haunted house, however, this one involves a home threatened by a pipeline in the backyard.

We're Not Totally Okay With Shia LaBeouf's Naked Sigur Ros Video
MTV News - over 4 years
Shia LaBeouf and Denna Thompson are really good at naked interpretive dance. Sigur Ros' "Fjögur Píanó" is a beautiful, somber, and vocal-less piano melody that truly haunts you to the core. Wanna know what else haunts us? The "Fjögur Píanó" piano video. Or, what we like to call  "The Naked Shia LaBeouf  Show!" Or, what we also like to call "Shia In The Buff." (GET IT?) Because he is naked a lot, and there is a FULL FRONTAL. Yep, you actually see some stuff. And guess what? I'm actually not full-frontally okay with Shia LaBeouf naked in this context and capacity. Here's why. The video, directed by Alma Har'el, consists primarily of Shia and model Denna Thomsen doing naked interpretive dance in between some intense moments of heavy petting (ew, I said "heavy petting"). Now, normally I'm not one to scoff at a little nudity before noon (plus, I've had a crush on Shia ever since he kissed Amy Smart in "The Batte Of Shaker Heights"). And it definitely takes balls -- which we can plainl ...

Update: L.A. City Council Approves Plastic Bags Ban, 10-Cent Fee for Paper Bags
Brentwood Patch - almost 5 years
A standing-room-only crowd packed City Hall on Wednesday as the Los Angeles City Council voted 13-1 to approve a ban on plastic bags and impose a 10-cent charge on paper bags at convenience stores and supermarkets in the nation's second-largest city. With the council's action, Los Angeles and its 3.8 million residents became the largest city in the United States to formally endorse a sweeping ban on single-use plastic shopping bags. "Today, the Los Angeles City Council took a prudent step to protect our environment and bolster our economy,” said Kirsten James, director of water quality for the Santa Monica-based nonprofit group Heal the Bay. “The vote further emphasizes the fact that the days are numbered for single-use bags in California.” Nearly 50 other municipalities in California have adopted ordinances in the state banning single-use plastic bags and most also ban or impose fees for paper bags. Other municipalities in California that have passed single-use plastic bag ba ...
