Many thanks to Sandra from Tricia Helfer Fan for letting us know about this The Black Keys’ Howlin’ for You Behind the Scenes featurette, which features an interview with Diora as well as footage from the set of the music video. Be sure to check it out as well as the screencaps that I loaded up in the gallery.
I’ve loaded various photos of Diora into the gallery, including two stunning photoshoots (the GQ one is possibly my all time favorite!) and a bunch of high quality appearance shots from various years.
The gallery has been updated with HD screencaps from Diora’s gorgeous Maxim photoshoot video as well as a poster and screencaps from the awesome Black Keys Howlin’ for You parody movie preview.
In celebration of Women in Horror Month we will be running a series of articles focused on the women of horror from guest contributors. Articles will run the gamut from spotlighting women authors, women filmmakers, female characters in horror films, scream queens, horrific artists and more and will run every Friday in February!
This week we have guest contributor Felix Vasquez Jr. of Cinema-Crazed.com dishing on his love for up-and-coming scream queen Diora Baird.
John Lennon and Yoko Ono once presented a performance art routine that was most unorthodox. What they did was completely cover themselves from head to toe with a white amorphous body cover, and explained that the cover is meant to explore how human beings have biases whether they know it or not. Hearing a person talk without indication of their physical appearance is a much more interesting way of getting to know someone, especially when youâ€™re not noticing blemishes, body language, and race. If we could listen instead of judge, weâ€™d be able to learn so much more.
With the majority of beautiful women in Hollywood, if you covered them up and heard them talk, your first instinct would be to consult a learning annex about their apparent disability, or youâ€™d zone out in a matter of twenty minutes. If you put an amorphous sheet over Diora Baird and just heard her talk for an hour, after constant laughter, thereâ€™s a great chance you wouldnâ€™t really care what was underneath the sheet. Baird (while being so beautiful it sometimes reduces me to soft whimpers) is much more than just looks. Though she was at one time a Playboy model, she is without a doubt one of the most interesting figures in filmmaking and horror today.
The gallery has been updated with some gorgeous new photos of Diora’s recent Maxim shoot which is featured in the upcoming March 2011 issue hitting newsstands on February 22nd. We will be adding scans once the new issue comes out. Enjoy!

The Black Keys released a music video Howlinâ€™ For You, which will make some people looking for the full movie to rent. The parody movie trailer is a grindhouse trailer that seems to be dedicated to the films by directors Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino.
The official synopsis follows:
“Alexa Wolff, a sexy assassin with a troubled past, unknowingly falls in love with the man who killed her father. He is not her first love, though. Two other men came before. But they would not have her. Now, all grown up with an appetite for revenge, Alexa’s leaving a trail of bloody corpses and broken hearts in her wake.
The actors featured in the trailer include Tricia Helfer, Sean Patrick Flannery, Corbin Bernsin, Christian Serratos, Todd Bridges and our very own Diora Baird. It has a cameo from snowboarder Shaun White as an assassination victim. The Black Keys is also in the music video playing as themselves as Las Teclas de Negro.
Check out the music video/parody movie trailer below.
The gallery has been updated with some insanely hot preview scans of Diora’s spread from the February 2011 issue of Italian GQ. Wow, she looks breathtakingly gorgeous! We’ll replace the scans with high quality versions as soon as we’re able to get our hands on the issue. Meanwhile, enjoy these!
Many thanks to Mycah for the heads-up on these!
The gallery has been updated with DVD screencaps of Diora in episode 6.16 of Two and a Half Men entitled “She’ll Be Dead at Halftime”. The older avi screencaps are still available in the gallery as well. Enjoy the new additions!
01. One From The Heart
â€œMy current movie obsession. Iâ€™m a sucker for musicals and this is THE musical. Francis Ford Coppola, from mobsters to showgirls. Who wouldâ€™ve thunk? Teri Garr at her best. Sigh. If only I could singâ€¦â€
02. Annie Hall
â€œThis is my favourite romantic comedy of all time. I watch it at least twice a year. Woody Allen and Diane Keaton make such a great team. I must admit, I sometimes steal from her and add â€˜Annieâ€™ to a role Iâ€™ll play. Itâ€™d be a dream come true to work with Woody.â€
03. A Woman Under The Influence
â€œI will always aspire to be as brilliant as Gena Rowlands is in this. No one can play drunk like she can. To top if off, Peter Falk is oh so good.â€
04. Taxi Driver
â€œI have a bit of a crush on Robert De Niro. Thereâ€™s no one who can do what he does â€” in this movie heâ€™s so menacing and so funny at the same time.â€
05. The Shining
â€œKubrick, Nicholson. If that doesnâ€™t give you a hard on, I donâ€™t know what will. As scary as it is, itâ€™s one of the most beautiful films ever made.â€
