Patrick Schwarzenegger poses shirtless in new ad

His parents’ divorce won’t bring down young entrepreneur Patrick Schwarzenegger. The model, whose parents Maria Shriver and former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger called it quits this year, recently appeared shirtless in an advertisement for Hudson Jeans.

According to People magazine, the black-and-white jumbo photo of young Mr. Schwarzenegger hangs high above ground on Sunset Boulevard.

The model and co-founder of charity Project360 has had quite a year with a profile in Details magazine this spring and a new kind of public exposure after his mother and father parted ways. When news outlets began reporting about his father’s extramarital affair and love child, Mr. Schwarzenegger tweeted, “some days you feel like [excrement], some days you want to quit and just be normal for a bit, yet i love my family till death do us apart. #family.”

Patrick Schwarzenegger’s modeling work doesn’t end with Hudson Jeans. According to Details, he signed on with L.A. Models this year. The company intends to lobby Ralph Lauren and Armani to make the 17-year-old the face of their campaigns.

But L.A. Models might want to take the young man’s plans into consideration, as the philanthropist tweeted Tuesday that he had just checked out some prestigious institutions of higher education. “Just visited Harvard university. Great college but I’m not adding it to the list. Stanford, USC, Penn, Georgetown are my tops for now,” Mr. Schwazenegger tweeted.

‘Jersey Shore’ defeats GOP debate in landslide

As the candidates vying for the Republican Party’s presidential nomination debated Thursday night in Ames, Iowa, the rest of the world was watching.

Watching “Jersey Shore,” that is.

The second episode of the MTV show’s fourth season attracted 7.4 million viewers, more than almost any other network in its time slot and quite a bit more than the Fox News/Washington Examiner debate. About 5 million tuned in to watch potential presidential candidates debate.

Are people already tired of the 2012 election season? Probably not. Ratings for “Jersey Shore” have been steadily increasing since the show debuted four seasons ago, resulting in MTV’s most-watched season premiere in its 30-year history last week, when the guidos and guidettes of New Jersey drew 8.8 million viewers.

Eastwood says Hoover film ambiguous on gay claims

As the first official movie images from “J. Edgar” were being released, director Clint Eastwood talked with Entertainment Weekly about the upcoming biopic about the legendary FBI director starring Leonardo DiCaprio.

Will J. Edgar Hoover’s rumored love of cross-dressing be addressed? Mr. Eastwood says the film “leaves it open to interpretation.”

Rumors also swirled about Hoover’s sexuality in his day. Mr. Eastwood says he has deliberately kept Hoover’s suspected homosexuality ambiguous. “Some people might interpret it that way. Some people might say [Hoover and his supposed lover, Clyde Tolson] were just inseparable pals. Or maybe it’s a love story without being gay, I don’t know. … It was nicely written. It didn’t go to the obvious.”

Though nobody had any firm dirt about Hoover, he had plenty on everyone else. Mr. Eastwood says that’s why Hoover remained at the helm of the FBI for nearly 50 years.

“Here’s this guy starting the Bureau of Investigation, which later became the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and then goes on to stay for 48 years through eight presidents. Of course nobody could fire him, because he had something on everybody,” he said.

In addition to DiCaprio, the film features performances from Naomi Watts as Hoover’s secretary Helen Gandy, Jeffrey Donovan as Robert F. Kennedy, Dame Judi Dench as Hoover’s mother, and Armie Hammer - famous for playing the Winklevoss twins in “The Social Network” - as Tolson.

“J. Edgar” lands in theaters Nov. 9.
