Adolf Hitler was maniacal about more than just world domination during his evil reign over Germany in the 1930s and 40s.
In a new interview with The Telegraph, Margot Woelk explains that she was seized by the SS many decades ago and forced to become the dictator’s food taster for two-and-a-half years, checking meals everyday to be sure they were not laced with poison.

Former movie star Lindsay Lohan actually secured a paying job as the face of a new fashion collection from German designer Philipp Plein, according to reports.
Bizarrely, Lohan admitted the collaboration came about so “spontaneously” that she had not met Plein or even seen the line until her shoot this weekend.
Makes you wonder if Plein knew what he was getting into when he hired this hot mess. Anyway, here’s LiLo at her new modeling gig on the shores of Lake Como, Italy …

Lindsay Lohan recently posed for the German issue of GQ, and we have to admit, looks more or less attractive and even coherent in the first pics released.
The weird thing? There’s no signs of her court-ordered ankle monitor – and we know she had it on because it was visible in the behind-the-scenes photos.
Not that it matters, of course, and it’s hard to blame GQ for not wanting to distract its readers from an otherwise enticing set of Lindsay Lohan pictures.
But it makes you wonder. How much airbrushing goes on, even when there is no SCRAM device involved? Take a look at Lindsay inMore >
