Flash Lites: Rip ‘N’ Read Pop Culture Recap

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash) – Original Spider-Man scribbler Stan Lee is hotter than ever thanks to Spidey’s recent blockbuster movie. Case in point: A simple webslinger doodle drawn and signed by Lee brought in a whopping $10,000 at a recent Kidney and Urology Foundation dinner in New York. Lee’s scribble netted more cash than doodles done by Barbra Streisand and Dudley Moore.

NEW YORK – It’s not easy being Johnny Knoxville. The former Jackass host tells Details magazine that he still gets confronted by girls who try to find out how tough he is by putting out cigarettes on his arm or punching him in the mouth.

NEW YORK – Jenny McCarthy had a baby boy recently but her main concern in the delivery room wasn’t the baby’s health as much as her own poop.

NEW YORK – Stardom still makes Nicholas Hoult – the 12-year-old who co-stars with Hugh Grant in About A Boy – a little nervous. He was so nervous when he signed his first autograph that he could – quote – “feel my knees shaking really badly. My handwriting was really squiggly.”

CANNES, France – Jack Nicholson is known for playing cool characters, but in his latest role, About Schmidt, he’s not so glamorous.
