The Daily Heat Index: Happy Birthday, Elle Macpherson
Plus, there’s brand new ‘Suicide Squad’ footage and Knicks star Carmelo Anthony gets bum rushed.
Here’s a daily dose of what’s heating up the internet:
Happy Birthday to ‘The Body’
If you’ve ever questioned the saying, “Things get better with age,” than we have the proof right here. Australian model and businesswoman Elle Macpherson turns 52 today and she looks as sexy as ever. The record five time Sports Illustrated cover girl, nicknamed ‘The Body’ (for obvious reasons), spent her career traveling the globe from runway to runaway working with the most elite of fashion photographers. While we blame Batman & Robin as the reason her short-lived acting career didn’t take off, the stunning mother of two still managed to make us laugh as Joey Tribbiani’s girlfriend on Friends and during her 1996 hosting gig on SNL. The woman has most certainly done it all, and then some. And for that, we wish her a very happy 52nd.
A Hug for Carmelo Anthony
Running onto the court (or field) at a sporting event could get you in serious trouble wherever you are, with punishment ranging from big fines to even time behind bars. But apparently, if you’re under the age of 12, that rule might not apply. During a Knicks/Pelicans game in New Orleans, a small boy charged past security onto the court to hug Knicks’ offensive Carmelo Anthony with :51 seconds left in the game, who basically stood there in complete shock. It’s all unnerving to know that the only punishment the kid received was a smack upside the head from his mother, since watching that could’ve been a much more dangerous assailant. Lucky for Carmelo, all he wanted was a hug.
A Better Look at Suicide Squad
It’s been about 2 months since the latest Suicide Squad trailer garnered over 43 million views, but that doesn’t mean we’ve forgotten what’s to come later this year. When Task Force X assembles to take down God knows what, we’ll see enough DC action that’ll make us understand why sometimes it’s okay to root for the bad guys. We’ve seen a lot of focus on Margot Robbie, Will Smith, and Joel Kinnaman, but what we really want to see is Jared Leto’s interpretation of The Joker, said to rival that of Heath Ledger’s in The Dark Knight. This international trailer above delivers with even more explosive footage than before, plus a few extra glimpses at The Clown Prince of Crime. Is it August 5th yet?
