RADAR Online claims Ryan Reynolds recently stripped after a woman vomited on him during a flight. A source tells the site, "About two-thirds of the way into the flight, a young lady in front of him in 1D vomited toward her window, which then spewed back all over Ryan's beige cashmere sweater. The vomit looked like it was largely made up of red wine, and it made a huge stain on Ryan's sweater. So he took it off! They tried to pretend like nothing happened. The vomiting was quiet, and I think they were all going to try to just hide what happened, but the smell was rancid! Also, you couldn't help but notice Ryan taking off his shirt!"
Vanilla Ice tells the Daily Mirror he and Madonna would go out in disguise when they dated. “We had great times. You take away the fame and everything and you got two people who just basically had a normal relationship. And I wish I could tell you more about it and throw some fireworks in there or something but it was kinda cool. Like, we would go to movies. We had disguises. I had a mustache and a hat with hair coming down and she would go as an old lady. And we would walk in and the bodyguards would like 20 feet behind. y’know, kinda lookin’ just like we’re nobody. And just walk in and go and see our movie and just have a good, normal... we’d do dinner that way and nobody would ever recognize us. It was the greatest.”
