Quotable: Don’t Ask Penelope Cruz For Beauty Tips

“I’m the wrong person, because every day when I’m not working, I don’t wear makeup. I like messy hair, and I wear jeans and a big T-shirt. If I could, I’d be barefoot in the street.”

Penelope Cruz on why she’s the last person who should be asked for beauty tips. Hey Penelope, take it from me, you can go barefoot anywhere. Just ask my co-workers! [USA Weekend] Keep reading »

The Hotties Of Science Fiction

Zoe Saldana has been crowned the reigning queen of sci-fi movies after playing Neytiri in “Avatar” in the same year as becoming Uhura in “Star Trek.” But Zoe says the sci-fi scene is nothing new for her. “For me, it’s been like preaching to my choir, because I was considered what you would think of as a geek,” she says. “I loved stories that helped me escape, and those happened to be the stories that fall into the category of geekiness. So, therefore, I am a proud geek!” [People]

In honor of Zoe, we’ve rounded up the sci-fi beauties of the past who paved the way for her.

Quotable: Lily Allen Is OK With Her Body, Thank You Very Much

“I’m just over the whole body thing. I honestly don’t care any more. I’ll never be teeny tiny like Cheryl Cole or Dannii Minogue, but I’ve stopped comparing myself. Put my next to the average British woman and I’m fine … I’ve still got a big bum and thighs, but they’re the parts of my body my boyfriend is always grabbing. I’ve lost that obsession and paranoia, thank God.”

– Lily Allen in Grazia magazine [ONTD]

Julian Casablancas Performs “SNL” Christmas Song


One of my favorite albums of the year is the Julian Casablancas solo record Phrazes for the Young — if you’re a fan of The Strokes, especially their first record, and you love Julian’s voice as much as I do, buy this album, like, now. One of the bonus tracks on the album if you download it off of iTunes is “I Wish It Was Christmas Today,” which originally was a skit on “Saturday Night Live” featuring Horatio Sanz, Jimmy Fallon, Chris Kattan, and Tracy Morgan. Last night, Casablancas performed on Jimmy Fallon’s show, and the host, as well as Sanz, came on stage to assist him as he sang the holiday tune. Check it out above and remind yourself of the original, after the jump… Keep reading »

Girl Talk: I Was Kelly Bensimon’s Personal Assistant

As if inviting the “Real Housewives of NYC” cameras into her home wasn’t revealing enough, Kelly Bensimon will be exposing herself to the world in next month’s issue of Playboy, in photos shot by her ex-husband, mega-famous photographer Gilles Bensimon. But as Kelly’s former personal assistant, I already feel like I’ve seen it all. After a year as her right hand, left hand and sometime-surrogate mother (“Kelly, that’s not a dress—it’s a shirt”), very little can surprise me.

I first met Kelly when I was a wide-eyed 22-year-old with dreams of becoming a writer. I had no idea what I was getting into when a mutual friend set up an informational interview with Kelly, who was a magazine columnist in her pre-”RHNYC” days. I stopped by her apartment on a Tuesday with a resume in hand. On Wednesday morning, I found out I’d been hired for a full-time position in “Kelly Land.” Keep reading »

Quotable: Sarah Jessica Parker’s Olfactory Senses Are Seriously Broken

“It has taken me three years to decide on the scent because I really like B.O. and I think it’s sexy. I wanted to figure out a way to make it palatable to everybody. I was like, ‘How do you get B.O. in a bottle and make an atomizer of it?’ ‘Then it was all about trying to capture the sense of naughtiness in a bottle that it would be good for a man and a woman.”

– Sarah Jessica Parker on the inspiration for her next scent. I suppose we should be grateful that she didn’t go with her other favorite scent — dirty, warm diapers. [Digital Spy] Keep reading »

remote control 122109 m jpg
If you’re like me, you’ve been watching Lifetime Christmas movies non-stop, but since they’re mostly re-runs and you can only handle Jennifer Grey’s new face so many times, you’ll most likely need to watch some less festive shows as well. This week, there’s the live finale of “The Sing-Off,” very special episodes of “Family Guy” and “Scrubs,” “Big ’80s Weekend,” and “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” since you’ll need something festive to watch while you wrap coal. Keep clicking to check out the previews.
