Kate Upton is everywhere these days, so we weren’t too surprised that SI picked her for their swimsuit issue cover . . . again. Of course that cover image she’s holding up is pretty impressive.
Katherine Webb also leveraged her instant fame bestowed on her by a drooling Brent Musberger during the Alabama National Championship throttling of Notre Dame to get included in this issue as well. Of course she’s also gorgeous and fits in perfectly!
Other models on the red carpet were Cintia Dicker, Jessica Gomes, Julie Henderson, Ariel Meredith, Genevieve Morton, Jessica Perez, Chrissy Teigen, Anne V, Adaora and Nina Agdal as they celebrated the 50th edition of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue at Marquee Nightclub, with many of them wearing Forevermark Diamonds to the event. Check out some of the pics from the event in the slideshow above.
The initial reaction to the idea of a new Three Stooges film for 2012 brought no end of moans and groans from Moe, Larry & Curly purists, but after Bobby and Peter Farrelly’s film hit theaters, many were surprised by the fact that it didn’t completely suck. Indeed, it was actually about as good as anyone could’ve hoped, thanks in no small part to the Farrelly’s devotion to making the best possible tribute to the comedic trio that they possibly could, aided in no small part by the efforts of Chris Diamantopoulos (Moe), Sean Hayes (Larry), and Will Sasso (Curly). Bullz-Eye talked to Peter Farrelly in conjunction with the film hitting DVD, and he spoke about the trials and tribulations of getting the film made, his Zen attitude toward the lengthy casting process, and his continued optimism that the Farrellys’ next film will indeed be “Dumb & Dumber 2.”
Bullz-Eye: Not that you haven’t been asked this more than a few times, but…what’s your very first memory of experiencing the Three Stooges?
Peter Farrelly: You know, the God’s honest truth…? I don’t remember it. Because they were always there. I’ve been watching the Stooges since I could turn on a TV. But I guess the thing I recall the most is, for some reason, I went through a period when I was, like, a freshman in high school where they were on every day from I think 4 – 5 PM, and I just remember it being the highlight of that winter. [Laughs.] Every day, because it was freezing out, you’d just get in the house and turn on the TV. Every kid in my school at that time was watching. For some reason, they were going through some sort of a renaissance. Everybody was watching them that year.
BE: Not that you guys have ever been afraid of testing boundaries, but it would seem to be pretty daunting to update the Three Stooges. I think the last time anyone tried it was with “The Three Robonic Stooges.“
PF: Yeah, we knew it wasn’t gonna be easy, but we love the Stooges and…the God’s honest truth is that we felt like they were going away. I had little kids…well, they’re 11 and 13 years old now, but the last few years, I asked their friends, and two-thirds of them did not know the Three Stooges. Or they had heard of them, but they didn’t really know who they were. And that bothered us, because we’re huge Stooges fans – they’ve given me more laughs than anybody – and we wanted to bring them back. But we knew that…you know, look, anytime you do anything like this… There was a huge, huge opportunity to fall on our faces, but I did believe that it should be done, the movie should be made, and I felt very confident that we could pull it off.
If you don’t know who Kate Upton is, then you clearly aren’t actually reading your copy of Sports Illustrated‘s swimsuit issue. Okay, fair enough, you’ve got a good excuse – beautiful women in bikinis have always appealed far more to male sensibilities than a well-written article – but, still, if you’d actually investigated some of the text, you’d know her name and would have remembered it when she was named the issue’s Rookie of the Year.
In addition to that notable accolade, Upton is also one of Sobe’s latest spokesfolk, which is how Bullz-Eye came to participate in a short but decidedly sweet little video chat with the model about her new gig with Sobe, the origins of her modeling career, and if she has any interest in moving beyond that realm.
