Canadian singer Avril Lavigne in March 2012 issue of FHM Australia Magazine – which seems surprisingly conservative, at least for this photoset. The styling makes her looks old on the cover, no complain about the rest of the pics. Image via Magxone…
Korea-born New Zealand golfer Lydia Ko has become the youngest winner of a professional golf tournament, men or women, at the age of 14.
The teenager won the New South Wales Open – an Australian Ladies Professional Golf Event – to break Japanese Ryo Ishikawa’s men’s mark (15 years, 8 months), and Australian Amy Yang’s women’s record of 16 years, 192 days.
Didn’t know this but he’s a successful stage actor before making his Hollywood breakthrough with X-Men in 2000. These moves are piece of cake.
Jackman will soon film a new Wolverine movie which is set in Japan, but I think he will shoot most of the scenes in studios and “fake” locations. For example they made this Lipton advertisement in Rio de Janeiro and not Tokyo despite the title.
Trivia: Brazil is home to the largest Japanese population outside Japan. There’s about 1.6 million people of Japanese descent in the country.
[Update 2013] Check out the official trailers for The Wolverine. As expected it’s mostly filmed outside of Japan. Many of the co-stars are Japanese though.

British charity fundraiser Ben Southall, 34, has landed himself the highly publicised “best job in the world”.
The Briton will get AUD150,000 in salary to have a six-month vacation at Great Barrier Reef… ok, not exactly a vacation as he needs to handle some daily task as the caretaker of the islands; but it’s pretty close to being paid to have a holiday. He will start his ‘work’ on July 1st.
The job, offered by Tourism Queensland in Australia, was announced in early 2009 and received more than 34,000 applications. It was obviously a tourism marketing campaign, and a very successful one considering the global publicity it receives.
Congrats to the dude [image courtesy of Tourism Queensland]
