Jilted by J.Lo

Ralph Fiennes toyed with and thrown aside on "Maid" set? Estella Warren loves being a hottie; Ozzy and Pat Boone, together at last. Plus: World's wackiest Diana Ross police videos!

Topics: Jennifer Lopez,

Ralph Fiennes: patsy?

The actor says that when he was making “Maid in Manhattan” with Jennifer Lopez, J.Lo’s people used him as a “decoy” to throw the press off the scent of the singer/actress’s relationship with Ben Affleck.

“It was a setup. Someone set up the idea she was having an affair with me when it was really with someone else. I was the decoy,” Fiennes tells the Calgary Sun. “J.Lo denies this, but then there was Ben.”

Fiennes wasn’t too tickled getting used and discarded so cavalierly by his costar’s peeps.

“I said: ‘Jennifer, I’m a little jealous. We were having a thing here and now it’s Ben,’” he recalls. “J.Lo has a whirlwind lifestyle and I just hung out with Stanley Tucci.”

Stanley Tucci vs. Ben Affleck? I’d say Fiennes got the better end of that deal.

Modesty incarnate

“I don’t mind being the beautiful, sexy girl. I really don’t. I don’t know why people have an adversity to being what they are.”

– Model-turned-actress Estella Warren on how being typecast as perfect is fine with her, to Canada’s Edmonton Sun.

If K.D. and Tony can do it, and Elton and Eminem …

Who could have predicted that Pat Boone had a bat biter inside him, yearning to breathe free?

At the American Music Awards the other night, the aging crooner shared a long-held fantasy: to duet with his former neighbor Ozzy Osbourne on his favorite Osbourne song.

“He and Sharon both enthusiastically said yes, so there may be an Osbourne-Boone duet in the offing, I hope,” Boone announced.

So which tune will these two take on?

“I can’t tell you what song because I’m afraid somebody will beat me to it,” Boone, who has already covered Ozzy’s “Crazy Train” on one of his albums, said.

Juicy bits

Good news for celebrity voyeurs: The police videotape of Diana Ross being tested for DUI last December will be released to the press, possibly as soon as Friday, the Associated Press reports. An Arizona judge has ordered its dispersal, but has stipulated that the tape be released without audio. Feel free to provide your own soundtrack: Ross’s own “Surrender,” perhaps?

The latest celebrity to get into the rag trade? Catherine Zeta-Jones. The preggers Mrs. Michael Douglas has announced her intention to bring out a line of designer baby clothing called Zeta, the London Evening Standard reports. Spit-up: It goes with anything.

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Hannah and Adam, "Pilot"

    One of our first exposures to uncomfortable “Girls” sex comes early, in the pilot episode, when Hannah and Adam “get feisty” (a phrase Hannah hates) on the couch. The pair is about to go at it doggy-style when Adam nearly inserts his penis in “the wrong hole,” and after Hannah corrects him, she awkwardly explains her lack of desire to have anal sex in too many words. “Hey, let’s play the quiet game,” Adam says, thrusting. And so the romance begins.

    Marnie and Elijah, "It's About Time"

    In an act of “betrayal” that messes up each of their relationships with Hannah, Marnie and Elijah open Season 2 with some more couch sex, which is almost unbearable to watch. Elijah, who is trying to explore the “hetero side” of his bisexuality, can’t maintain his erection, and the entire affair ends in very uncomfortable silence.

    Marnie and Charlie, "Vagina Panic"

    Poor Charlie. While he and Marnie have their fair share of uncomfortable sex over the course of their relationship, one of the saddest moments (aside from Marnie breaking up with him during intercourse) is when Marnie encourages him to penetrate her from behind so she doesn’t have to look at him. “This feels so good,” Charlie says. “We have to go slow.” Poor sucker.

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Shoshanna and camp friend Matt, "Hannah's Diary"

    We’d be remiss not to mention Shoshanna’s effort to lose her virginity to an old camp friend, who tells her how “weird” it is that he “loves to eat pussy” moments before she admits she’s never “done it” before. At least it paves the way for the uncomfortable sex we later get to watch her have with Ray?

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Hannah and Adam, "Hard Being Easy"

    On the heels of trying (unsuccessfully) to determine the status of her early relationship with Adam, Hannah walks by her future boyfriend’s bedroom to find him masturbating alone, in one of the strangest scenes of the first season. As Adam jerks off and refuses to let Hannah participate beyond telling him how much she likes watching, we see some serious (and odd) character development ... which ends with Hannah taking a hundred-dollar bill from Adam’s wallet, for cab fare and pizza (as well as her services).

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Marnie and Booth Jonathan, "Bad Friend"

    Oh, Booth Jonathan -- the little man who “knows how to do things.” After he turns Marnie on enough to make her masturbate in the bathroom at the gallery where she works, Booth finally seals the deal in a mortifying and nearly painful to watch sex scene that tells us pretty much everything we need to know about how much Marnie is willing to fake it.

    Tad and Loreen, "The Return"

    The only sex scene in the series not to feature one of the main characters, Hannah’s parents’ showertime anniversary celebration is easily one of the most cringe-worthy moments of the show’s first season. Even Hannah’s mother, Loreen, observes how embarrassing the situation is, which ends with her husband, Tad, slipping out of the shower and falling naked and unconscious on the bathroom floor.

    Hannah and the pharmacist, "The Return"

    Tad and Loreen aren’t the only ones to get some during Hannah’s first season trip home to Michigan. The show’s protagonist finds herself in bed with a former high school classmate, who doesn’t exactly enjoy it when Hannah puts one of her fingers near his anus. “I’m tight like a baby, right?” Hannah asks at one point. Time to press pause.

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Hannah and Adam, "Role-Play"

    While it’s not quite a full-on, all-out sex scene, Hannah and Adam’s attempt at role play in Season 3 is certainly an intimate encounter to behold (or not). Hannah dons a blond wig and gets a little too into her role, giving a melodramatic performance that ends with a passerby punching Adam in the face. So there’s that.

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Shoshanna and Ray, "Together"

    As Shoshanna and Ray near the end of their relationship, we can see their sexual chemistry getting worse and worse. It’s no more evident than when Ray is penetrating a clothed and visibly horrified Shoshanna from behind, who ends the encounter by asking if her partner will just “get out of me.”

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Hannah and Frank, "Video Games"

    Hannah, Jessa’s 19-year-old stepbrother, a graveyard and too much chatting. Need we say more about how uncomfortable this sex is to watch?

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Marnie and Desi, "Iowa"

    Who gets her butt motorboated? Is this a real thing? Aside from the questionable logistics and reality of Marnie and Desi’s analingus scene, there’s also the awkward moment when Marnie confuses her partner’s declaration of love for licking her butthole with love for her. Oh, Marnie.

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Hannah and Adam, "Vagina Panic"

    There is too much in this scene to dissect: fantasies of an 11-year-old girl with a Cabbage Patch lunchbox, excessive references to that little girl as a “slut” and Adam ripping off a condom to ejaculate on Hannah’s chest. No wonder it ends with Hannah saying she almost came.
