ABC told ‘Batman’ actor Burt Ward to take pills to shrink penis
For baby boomers and classic TV fans, the name Burt Ward is instantly recognizable as the loyal and extremely excitable Robin on the campy “Batman” series which ran on ABC from 1966-1968. Just this week he happily unveiled a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame which he called an “amazing experience.”
The Caped Crusaders costumes were bright and tight-fitting to say the least, so snug that Ward incurred the wrath of the Catholic League of Decency.

Camille Paglia: The Death of the Hollywood Sex Symbol (Guest Column)
Who killed the sex symbol?
It's no mystery that in the era of #MeToo, the rules of combat have changed on the sexual battlefield. Women will no longer tolerate condescending or degrading treatment that was once business as usual in the workplace or dating arena. But in this long overdue push-back against sexual coercion and exploitation, has something valuable been lost?
The sex symbol was arguably Hollywood's most brilliant artifact, propelling the young movie industry to world impact from the moment that Theda Bara flashed her coiled-snake brassiere in Cleopatra (1917). Sex was great box office. With its impudent populism, Hollywood crashed through stuffy proprieties lingering from the Victorian age and stationed itself at the bold forefront of the modern liberalization of sex. Movies were in sync with the radical new spirit of American women, who won the right to vote in 1920 and kicked up their heels throughout the flapper decade of the Roaring Twenties.
The great sex symbols of Hollywood were manufactured beings, engineered by trial and error, with the mass audience as their ultimate judge and jury. Decade by decade, the movie industry rediscovered primal archetypes that have animated myths around the world since the Stone Age. Major male sex symbols like Clark Gable, Cary Grant and Sidney Poitier have a mesmerizing natural authority onscreen, a supranormal power of personality and density of being that transcend their roles. Like their antecedents in ancient hero sagas, they inhabit and explore physical space, whose frustrations and dangers they endure but ultimately defeat.
The female sex symbol, however, commands emotional or psychological space. Her sensual beauty is an alluring mirage, hypnotizing and sometimes paralyzing. Never entirely present, she is attuned to another reality, an extrasensory dimension to which we have no access. There is an unsettling aura of the uncanny around the major female sex symbols, who channel shadowy powers above or below the social realm.

Chace Crawford’s Got An Enormous Bulge In A Calendar For ‘The Boys,’ And People Have Definitely Noticed
Chace Crawford is currently starring in Amazon’s The Boys series about a ragtag group of vigilantes who are on a mission to keep corrupt and sleazy superheroes in check. In the series, Crawford stars as one of the aforementioned “supes” who goes by The Deep, in that he can breathe underwater with gills and also has the ability to communicate with aquatic life.
Initially, The Deep is presented as a real scumbag — which is not inaccurate, given that he sexually assaults a new, young female recruit in literally the first scene he’s introduced. However it’s eventually revealed the general lack of respect he commands among his colleagues and he even elicits a modicum of sympathy in a tragic yet highly comedic side story.
In any event, The Deep has been lauded by some as the most interesting character of the series by the end of the first season, which may be why Amazon recently sent out a jokey 2020 promotional calendar to members of the media featuring the character in 12 months of bright and splashy (pun not intended) pictorials.
Odell Beckham Jr hits back at homophobes mocking his Calvin Klein shoot

Odell Beckham Jr. not bothered by people speculating he is gay
GQ: There was a period of time when a lot of gossip sites — specifically black gossip sites — would constantly say that you were closeted. They’d call you “excited” in a hot-tub photo with your teammates or simply just say you’re gay. How’d that make you feel?
Beckham: I’ve never had an opportunity to talk about this. Honestly wasn’t offended. I’ve never once had no problem with anybody who has their own personal life that they live. I have friends who are gay. It was almost more funny to me. I almost messed with them even more. It’s like when someone gives me an ultimatum, I’m usually always going to go to the opposite way of what you want me to go. So when they would say that, I would almost mess with them even more. I have no problem with anyone’s sexual orientation.
