I don't know what you could be referring to, OP. Who on earth would ever stoop that low and resort to such desperate behavior? A superstar like me has never had to do anything that vulgar, thank God.
Besides I am far too busy to have any time for desperate publicity stunts. Take today for instance. I've got a nude photoshoot outdoors followed by a four hour sex session with my husband. Then I'll be working on the sequel to my Broadway smash "The Blonde in the Thunderbird" and then selling my bowel movements and used tampons on QVC. I am so busy I haven't even been able to return calls from John Ritter's widow who has been begging me to forgive John.

Aging leading man or action hero teams up with wildly popular hot young rising star. Both benefit - the old one from gaining audiences, the young one from legitimizing their career by working with a critically acclaimed legend.
Too many examples to name, but here are a few:

Fonda and Lohan
Brando and Pacino
Streep and Hathaway
