Dunham, Others Sing 'You Don't Own Me'

Yes, that’s “Girls” showrunner Lena Dunham, style rookie Tavi Gevinson, and designer Rachel Antonoff in the “You Don’t Own Me” PSA video that is going viral.

To prepare 200 residents of a remote Amazonian village who have never seen a movie to be extras in his upcoming cannibalism horror movie, filmmaker Eli “Bear Jew” Roth showed them the controversial 1980’s Mondo classic “Cannibal Holocaust.” Roth reported, “The villagers thought it was the funniest thing they’d ever seen.”

Harvey Weinstein has made sure that President Obama will have an actual starring role in “Seal Team Six,” the film he produced about the killing of Osama bin Laden that will be aired on the National Geographic Channel two days before the election.
