Ah, Google. The greatest information superhighway, where most of us cruise on the daily, searching for intel only an absurdly complex, fast-acting algorithm can provide (unless you use Bing). We look for recipes, statistics, images, ourselves … pretty much anything and everything.
Google is a judgment-free zone, thus you can ask it whatever you'd like without fear or embarrassment. It's a mostly secret enterprise, as far as your personal search history is concerned. But ever since the search giant introduced the auto-fill drop-down function Google Instant, it's given us delicious insight into what others most commonly seek out around a subject.
Vulture made great use of this last week when it looked at what people most commonly asked about when it came to the Google love-fest "The Internship." It inspired us to look at a broader spectrum of Hollywood, plucking the very best/ most hilarious/ most absurd/ most depressing queries. Really, this list could go on forever ... Get More »

Wow, it had only been three months without a Mel Gibson explosion ... things got boring there for a second.
Not anymore! TMZ is reporting that Mad Mel's step-mother Joye Gibson, who is 78, is seeking a restraining order against the "passionate" actor.
Born Teddy Joye Hicks, she claims the "Passion of the Christ" director has been using his "Lethal Weapon" (i.e. his mouth) to make her life a living hell, and is asking a judge to block Mel from evicting her from her home, to prevent him from sabotaging attempts to communicate with her husband, and for Mel to stay 100 yards away from her at all times.

Are you ready for Ballistic: Mad Mel vs. Machete?
The roller coaster that is Mel Gibson just did a loop-de-loop … and then derailed and crashed onto the helpless spectators below.
We reported last week that Gibson and screenwriter Joe Eszterhas would no longer be collaborating on "The Maccabees," the proposed historical epic about Jewish hero Judah Maccabee. Warner Bros. and Gibson rejected Eszterhas' draft, to which Eszterhas countered with an angry letter to Gibson accusing him of being anti-Semitic to the point of full-blown psychosis. Get More »
The roller coaster that is Mel Gibson just got thrown for yet another loop.
It looks like Gibson and screenwriter Joe Eszterhas won't be collaborating any further on that epic about Jewish hero Judah Maccabee, as Eszterhas' script has been rejected by both the director and Warner Bros., according to The Wrap.
Jewish groups were outraged after news broke last September that Gibson — who had delivered a now-infamous anti-Semitic public rant back in 2006 — had reached a production deal with WB to direct the story of Judah Maccabee, whose victory over Greek and Syrian armies in 2nd century B.C. is celebrated at Hanukkah. One Jewish group called it "a moral lapse in judgment." Get More »
The roller coaster that is Mel Gibson just got thrown for another loop.
The director of "The Passion of the Christ" and the writer of "Basic Instinct," Joe Eszterhas, are collaborating on bringing the story of Jewish hero Judah Maccabee to the big screen, according to Deadline.
Yes, we said Mel Gibson is doing a movie about a Jewish hero. A Jewish one. Get More »
No one can accuse director Jodie Foster's "The Beaver" of being just another dysfunctional-family drama when it features Mad Max himself (Mel Gibson) on the verge of madness as he communicates with others via a beaver hand puppet. Foster, who has been a good friend of Gibson's for the past 15 years, obviously believed in the troubled actor enough to give him one of the most unusual -- and challenging -- roles of his career.
Gibson stars as Walter Black, the successful CEO of a toy company and family man, who has fallen into a crippling depression. Get More »
