The Ultimate Survivor Is Josie Alibrandi Who’s Defied The Laws Of Time And Still Looks Like A Teenager

Proof that tomatoes are good for you

Looking For Alibrandi is an Australian icon. It’s cherished with the likes of Nikki Webster, Budgie Smugglers and Vegemite. It’s the film that taught a whole generation of Australians how to cope with being a teenager, that not coping is okay, and that every family is a little bit nuts. 

Pia Miranda, the actor who brought Josie Alibrandi to life, is also an Australian icon. 

True, After Looking For Alibrandi Pia didn’t go on to star in anything of major note, but the one movie is enough: she will forever be cherished as the loud, strong-headed Italian teenager who made us all want to date a dude called Jacob. 

Even though it feels like yesterday, Pia played the role of Josie 19 years ago. 19 YEARS. Pia is now 46 years old even though I swear she hasn’t aged a day in the last two decades. 

But it’s not only her face which has defied the laws of time: it’s her body too, because Pia is on the upcoming season of Australian Survivor

So she’s ageless and fighting fit. Turns out all those tomatoes were good for something other than family bonding and a lifetime of pasta sauce.

Robert Pattinson Says He Smells Like A Crayon And I Need To Know Which Colour

Another wild yarn from R-Patz.

Robert Pattinson has gained quite a reputation for spinning wild yarns during interviews, but his most recent comments on his body odour have me truly shaken.

In a recent interview with Allure the star of the upcoming The Batman film said, “Lots of people tell me I smell like a crayon.”

The interviewer – understandably bewildered by this statement – then asked, “Like you’re made of wax?”

To which R-Patz responded, “Yes! Like I’m embalmed.”

I have so many questions. What colour crayon does Pattinson smell like? What brand? Is he using lots of crayons? And most importantly, who are these multiple people who are telling him he smells like crayon!? Is that an insult, or a compliment?

It’s not the first time Robert Pattinson’s scent has come up in conversation. Back in 2009, E! News reported that an unidentified source who worked “very closely” with the actor on New Moon said “he stinks.”

“I mean, it’s awful,” the source said. “He never showers, and it drives people on the set crazy.”

“He completely reeks,” an unidentified crew member added. Yikes.

It’s been over a decade since then, so we can only hope Robert Pattinson has swapped his lack of showering for an obsession with crayons. 

Speaking of celebrity scents, celebrity tattoo artist Lauren Winzer dishes on what Post Malone smells like on It’s Been A Big Day For…below:

During his interview with Allure, Pattinson was also asked about being recently named the “most handsome man” in the world according to science.

“It’s weird,” he said. “I never was really up for the good-looking-guy roles, because I’ve always been quite awkward when meeting people.”

“My Harry Potter role was a good-looking guy, and it was a shock that it was quite easy to get. And then in Twilight, [Edward is] beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. When I turned up for the auditions, I had done a job where I’d dyed my hair black, because I had an inch and a half of roots, and I had waxed my body. And then I had a few months where I’d been drinking beer all day, so I had this hairless, chubby body. I looked like a baby with a wig on.”

Hairless, chubby, waxed or smelling like a crayon – we’ll take Robert Pattinson any which way.
