John Cho’s lighting up the holiday season with his new movie, A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas.
Audrey Magazine got to interview the actor during his LA press tour and you can catch his article published in the Winter Issue of our magazine (featuring cover girl Mindy Kaling). Purchase here.
Below, the rest of our chat.
How was it going back to the franchise?
I love coming back to this guy. I have a lot of affection for Harold as a character. i know guys like Harold, I [actually] know Harold Lee, whom the movie was based on, so I love it. Now I’m friends with the writers and Kal so it’s a real privilege, particularly given how nomadic the actor’s life typically is, it’s cool to have this constant.
What do you think makes a franchise work?
No idea. If I knew, I’d be rich.
When is it not working?
When you have a clay penis? [Chuckles] When you have to resort to that? I don’t know. I’ve always been of the “more is better” school just from the fans side. Even when the quality [of a film] degrades, I tend to enjoy it. The more Rocky movies the better, you know? Continue Reading »

I think Joy Osmanski is one of the most talented comedic actresses around (no, she’s not bribing me with chocolate cupcakes everyday — just every other day).
This hilarious video of our favorite quirky gal palling around with the guys from National Film Society kinda makes us giggle. A lot.
We hope you enjoy as much as we do!
BuddhaX is a new exercise concept that combines breakdance with power vinyasa yoga to create breakflow, a unique series of integrated dance moves and yoga poses. When done at a continuous, reasonable pace you can burn between 500 and 1,500 calories per hour (not to mention, look really cool doing it). Here, co-founder Japanese B-boy A.T.S of Rock Steady Crew demonstrates the BuddhaX CC Push-up, a core-focused movement that works out every single muscle. Try it — he swears anyone can do!
With the ridiculous stalemate in Congress and the bitter rhetoric starting up again as presidential election season approaches, it’s far too easy to retreat into our cynicism, holed up within the ramparts of apathy. Why bother, right? Everything sucks right now.
Then I heard a story. Out of a mundane request for yet another holiday gala, something else arose. A cup of coffee. A conversation. A moment.
This is the result. A little known bill in Congress, a South Korean pastor sacrificing to save North Korean refugee orphans. And a star who, instead of schmoozing with yet another group of corporate sponsors, chose to spend her time in this earnest plea. Sometimes we can make a difference.
Please help us pass the North Korean Refugee Adoption Act here. It literally only takes a minute.
In our Winter 2011-12 issue, The Awful Truth columnist Paul Nakayama discussed the ins and outs of the Hall Pass: a week off from your relationship to fool around with other partners. We asked our staff who their celebrity hall passes were and here are their responses.
Assistant Editor/Online Manager Janice Jann: Jake Gyllenhall mainly, but also Diego Luna, Takeshi Kaneshiro, Topher Grace.
In our Winter 2011-12 issue, we profiled electric cellist Tina Guo. Here, more from our conversation with her.
Audrey Magazine: What is the story behind your first solo record?
Tina Guo: The last record that I put out, I wasn’t really trying to get [distributed by a major label]. Most of the music, I self-produced, self-wrote, self-recorded. I did it just to do music and then I realized I had enough to for an entire album. I put it out through my own label and distributor and Universal wanted to pick it up.
My nails were getting a little…janky.
I mean, I know hobo hipster chic is in right now but this was getting a little out of hand. (Please excuse the pun).
Because I’m a poor writer, I couldn’t afford a manicure and was a little too lazy to lather on some new polish myself, I decided to try these Nail Couture LA nail wraps.

Luc Besson‘s newest film, The Lady, stars international actress Michelle Yeoh portraying Burmese activist and Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi. The film opens today in select theaters across the U.S. Read our interview in our Winter 11-12 issue of Audrey.
Appropriately, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton visited Suu Kyi today at her residence in Rangoon, Burma, reportedly the first senior U.S. official in 50 years to visit Burma.
My first impression of Victor King was that he is “down-right-sexy.” Many of the celebrities I’ve interviewed agree that Victor is, indeed, attractive and a dreamer.

Aquino, Andrew Garcia, D-Trix, AJ Rafael, Wong Fu Productions, Dumbfoundead, Jennifer Chung, Jason Yang, Michelle Phan, Joseph Vincent, JK Films, Cathy Nguyen, David So, Quest Crew and Poreotics, both champions from MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew had to say about Victor:
