Now the hairstyles, locations, outfits and fake tans might change – but there’s one thing that doesn’t and that’s the expression of these 15 people. It doesn’t matter where they are, birthday, party, club, prom night or a red carpet event – it’s all one and the same. On the positive, you don’t have to worry about looking bad when you’re inevitable tagged on Facebook, the negative? YOU LOOK THE SAME IN EVERY PHOTO! So strap yourself in (some may make a short while to load) and prepare to to be dumb-founded, confused and hopefully hellishly amused.

The actress and comedian has recalled the 'brutal' and uncomfortable experience from an unnamed comedy movie Sarah Silverman has revealed she was violated while filming a sex scene for a comedy. The actress - who deals with issues of rape and trauma in her stand-up material - has insisted she never takes it lightly because of her own disturbing experiences. Speaking to radio DJ Howard Stern, Sarah admitted the scene was "brutal" and involved "an extra" simulating sex against her. She said: "I've had experiences in my life ... I had a brutal sex scene in something that [before] I was looking around going, 'Is there gonna be a board or something between us?' "I fell on deaf ears and the next thing I knew it was happening. It hurt to walk for days ... [I expected] someone would have thought beforehand and protected me in some way." However, no obstruction was placed between Sarah and her co-star, who was "completely naked" for the uncomfortable scene. She explained: "He is completely naked except for not even the thickness of a sock. I can completely feel his boner. "He's not even a real actor, he's an extra. And he's smashing me and f*****g the s**t out of me in the scene. "I did [put on panties] but you couldn't see. It felt very violating. It made me realise I'm a very strong woman and this happened to me. It's not rape but it was kind of a wake-up call." Indeed, the "traumatic" story was recounted by the 42-year-old actress after Howard asked if women ever told her not to joke about the subject of rape because she hadn't dealt with it herself. She responded: "I haven't... I've had violating experiences that make me go, 'Whoa'. "I never take rape lightly. I talk about the most brutal, upsetting, traumatic things and that's one of them."
Just listen to this interview Jerry Seinfeld gave to Howard Stern on Stern's SiriusXM program on Wednesday morning. It's upward of 90 minutes of pure comedy talk. And it's gold. Stern really zeroes in everything comedy regarding Seinfeld, from his history with NBC, to his relationships with Johnny Carson, Jay Leno and David Letterman, and the minutia about Seinfeld's bits, his episodes of Seinfeld and so much more. Stern said he enjoys asking musicians about coming up with hit songs. "Comedy is the same thing, and even harder," Stern said. What makes it work, though, is how much Seinfeld respects Stern and repeats his desire to be "honest" with him in the interview. A few highlights... Seinfeld on not being comfortable, on always thinking of comedy bits, and turning life into a bit: "Everything. Every second of my existence, I'm thinking: Can I do something with that?" Seinfeld on the idea of comedy schools: "It's like pirate school. There's no school for this. You want to be a pirate? You got to be a person totally self-sufficient. Totally angry and determined. You've got to be kind of furious." And on being happily married at 59: "The Jewish male stand-up comedian...is known to be, no question about it, are the longest most happily-married segment of the show-business population." Why? "Because they're smart. They know it's a trick! They've played the shell game before." Stick around long enough and you'll also hear Seinfeld and Stern talk to each other about their trademark voices and the mechanics of talking into microphones. And a gig for 16 people on couches for the Orlando Magic a couple of years ago on Richard Branson's private island. "They wanted a set." Absurd? "YES!" Roll it when you have the time to dedicate to this!
