#63: Never Admit You Have No Freaking Clue Who Leighton, Cuttino, Rihanna, Jensen, Dane or Feist Are

Admit it: They all swim together, these strangely-named, androgynous-sounding, ethnically-ambiguous young stars of film, television, music, and sports. Is Leighton male, female, or both? Is Cuttino America’s Next Top Model and Feist the frisky young soccer player? Is Jensen a member of a brother band while Dane is embroiled in babymamadrama? Or vice versa, or none or all of the above?

Quiz time!

Match the photos below with the appropriate names.

a. Leighton b. Cuttino c. Feist d. Dane e. Rihanna f. Jensen

Okay, now let’s make it a little harder. Match the names above to the person’s other name. And yes, this is a trick question because, in a couple of cases, the person in question uses their last name as a first (or an only). Here are the other names:

Robyn, Ackles, Meester, Mobley, Leslie, Cook

And now, since you’re so smart, match the names and the pictures to the possible occupations:

Supernatural soap star, Standup comedian, Gossip Girl, Canadian folksinger, Barbadian pop singer, Los Angeles Clipper

And the answers are:

1. Leslie Feist
, who goes by her last name only, is a Canadian folksinger best known for her song “1234” in the Apple commercial.

2. Robyn Rihanna, who also goes by her last name only, is a Barbadian pop singer and Grammy winner who looks amazing in sparkly dresses.

3. Dane Cook is a standup comic and star of movies so dumb you’d only see them in a desperate and probably unsuccessful attempt to bond with your 15-year-old son.

4. Cuttino Mobley is a Los Angeles Clipper, which reportedly means he plays professional basketball.

5. Jensen Ackles is a former soap star who’s now in a television show called Supernatural, which I’ve never heard of either.

6. Leighton Meester is one of the stars of Gossip Girl, a show which your teenager undoubtedly loves because the characters as much (more!) money and sex as adults, with none of the icky responsibility. Enjoy!

    Jensen Ackles is more than just a former soap opera actor. He’s starred in Dark Angel, S2, Smallville S4, Dawson’s Creek, and other shows and a couple of movies. The thing is though, the man can act, period. It’s not just pretty looks for Jensen, it’s also a lot of talent for a tv actor, especially one on a crappy network. So, just to get you more acquainted with one of the most talented tv actors today. 😀

  2. I have to admit I had no idea who any of them were.

    However, I am always less clueless than my husband. He asked me today what Facebook is!

    I only knew Rihanna and Leighton. I do love Gossip Girl. It’s not a guilty pleasure. It’s just Pure Awesome, and Leighton really is an excellent actress. It’s like an updated version of something from F. Scott Fitzgerald’s brain. Particularly the Jenny plotline. From interviews, I think Taylor Momsen seems like the most intelligent and articulate member of the cast despite only being fourteen.

  4. Damn; After reading Lex and Hermirtme’s comments, I’m feeling like this place should be called hownottofeelyoung. Off to buy a Buick….
