Ed Helms: Going Naked Isn't So Funny

Ed Helms: Going Naked Isn't So Funny

As if losing a tooth in The Hangover wasn't proof enough of just how uninhibited Ed Helms can act, then go take a look at his latest effort, the big-screen comedy opening Friday, Cedar Rapids.

In it, the costar of The Office, here playing a dorky Midwestern insurance salesman, not only has intimate scenes with Sigourney Weaver and Anne Heche, but also shares a bare-all, towel-dropping embrace with Kurtwood Smith, who played the father of Topher Grace's character on That '70s Show.

"I was completely naked," Helms, 37, told PEOPLE at Thursday's New York Cinema Society screening of Cedar Rapids, sponsored by Altoids. "I feel that those little modesty pouches that they give you for nude scenes are far more humiliating than actually nudity, so why not just go for it?"

Sigourney Weaver, James Cameron's Blue Avatar Aliens Go Green

Originally posted 04/18/2010 09:30AM

The aliens may be blue in Avatar, the highest-grossing film of all-time, but director James Cameron and star Sigourney Weaver are using their movie to spread a message that's proudly green.

The accomplished pair hosted the Eco Warrior Training competition, presented Saturday at Brooklyn Technical High School by the Internet search engine Bing. Local high school students vied for $12,000 in scholarships delivering speeches on "An Environmental Lesson I Learned From Avatar and How to Apply It In My Community, New York City, America and/or the World."

"As a New Yorker, I'm thrilled to be here to meet you, to talk to you about all of us becoming eco-warriors because our planet needs it. I got involved in Avatar, and I loved the experience. I loved the director, but I also really wanted to play Grace Augustine, who's this kick-ass woman scientist," Weaver, 60, told the more than 300 cheering teens in the audience.

Newly crowned Tour de France champ Lance Armstrong has won countless fans across the globe, but one of his funniest is Ben Stiller. Stiller, who cast Armstrong in Dodgeball, tells Insider: "It's hard to understand how someone can do all that on a physical level. But having gotten a chance to know him, he's a very normal sort of guy." But not normal like you and me. "I read his book a couple of years ago," says Stiller. "Here was a guy who had beaten cancer. His story is so amazing that after I read it I felt, 'That's incredible. I am so inspired.' And then I thought, 'Wow, I really suck.' "
