The trailer for “My Week With Marilyn” has finally arrived! Michelle Williams stars as Marilyn Monroe and the film focuses on the actress’s first trip to Europe to film a movie with Sir Lawrence Olivier, during which she had a brief affair with a production assistant named Colin Clark. Clark wrote about their interlude in a tell-all book on which the film is based. By the looks of the trailer, it sure seems like Williams — who, admittedly, I think is divine – has seriously channeled the bombshell’s mix of vivaciousness and depression. Will it get her a third Oscar nod? It’s too soon to tell — the film opens at the New York Film Festival and is in theaters on November 4. Will you be seeing it?
Teen bride Courtney Stodden, who single-handedly keeps the frosted lipstick industry afloat, supposedly set up that beach romp photo shoot to prove to the world that her assets — i.e. her globe-like breasts — are real. But my eyes were immediately drawn to another area of her body — those abs. While I suppose there is a teeeeeeny tiny chance that six-pack is the result of going daily super sexy sensual crunching exercises, they look spray-tanned on to me. Give me a hose and I will prove it! And when I’m done with her, I’ll take down these 20 other celebrities who got a little overzealous with the spray tanner.
Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn't matter to me ... Going to bed at night saying we've done something wonderful ... that's what matters to me.
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” — Steve Jobs, Stanford Commencement Speech
Steve Jobs, co-founder, chairman and former chief executive of Apple Inc., has passed away at the age of 56 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. Jobs stepped down from his post at Apple in August and the impact he had on technology and how we use it can’t be overstated. The striking proof of that can be seen, for example, in the fact that I, like I’m sure many of you, found out about Jobs passing while using one of the gadgets he created, the iPhone 4, and I sit here now writing of his passing on Apple’s MacBook Pro. (Today, coincidentally enough, also saw the launch of the iPhone 4S.) Our thoughts are with his family and friends, especially, but the passing of this great inventor is certainly a loss for the world. [Apple]

“I’m not that good looking. I think I’m a pretty weird-looking guy. Every role I got up until ‘The Notebook’ [in 2004] was the weirdo, freak, psychopath, nerd, outsider character guy. I think things have changed.”
– Ryan Gosling is not nearly as convinced of the legitimacy of his dreamboat status as the rest of the world. Hey, Ryan, we have something in common. I don’t think I’m that good looking either, which means that I’m totally in your league. So, let’s make out. [Chicago Sun-Times]
Even though I am not a tremendous fan of cooler temperatures, one of my favorite quotes ever is from Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery. “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers,” Anne-with-an-E says. And so am I. Click on to see what we’re wearing today.
