The first trailer for Lena Dunham’s new HBO show “Girls,” debuting April 15, hit a little too close to home. The second trailer is even more cringe-inducing. Oh, God, my early 20′s really were like this, weren’t they? At least I never said to my parents, “All I am asking for is $1,100 a month for the next two years,” and got laughed at.  [IndieWire]

Damn, that girl can keep a secret: Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied are married, the couple’s jeweler has confirmed to Us Weekly. The pair had tongues wagging at the Ocars on Sunday night when they were both spotted wearing rings. Now jeweler Jaime Wolf has confirmed the happy couple was wearing wedding bands made of recycled platinum and conflict-free diamonds. That’s very Natalie, isn’t it? (Her engagement ring was vegan, too!) Unfortunately, there’s no other deets on where, when or what she wore, because Nat’s rep and manager have declined to comment. We’re bummed to be kept in the dark, but impressed they were able to marry without anyone knowing!  [Us Weekly]

Natalie Portman isn’t the only celeb who’s gotten hitched in secret. We’ve rounded up a slew of other hush-hush celebrity marriages to which we also weren’t invited.

“I never sit in judgment. Lindsay Lohan and I have more in common than people think. We’ve all done things we shouldn’t. It is just that I did stuff at college when nobody knew about it, so I’m not a saint. I wasted time doing self-destructive things. I found out you can only dance on so many table tops. I got all that out of my system and I am healthy and grounded.”

– Reason #412 why I love Anne Hathaway: she is honest about how her squeaky-clean “good girl” image is just that — an image. It’s true that everyone experiments when they’re young, but child stars like Lindsay Lohan and Miley Cyrus have to do it in the public eye. Although Anne is being pretty gracious here … something tells me that she and Lindsay have nothing in common.  [The Sun UK]

Jessica Brown Findlay jewelry modeling

Lady Sybil Crawley on “Downton Abbey” is my new girl crush and not just because she’s a rabblerousing feminist. The actress who plays Sybil, named Jessica Brown Findlay, is a jaw-droppingly lovely “English rose,” as they say. Jewelry designer Dominic Jones must agree, because he’s hired Jessica to appear in ads for his new jewelry line. I’m not going to pretend to like her makeup style here — it evokes Angelina Jolie from the Billy Bob days, or maybe any Helena Bonham Carter movie — but, hey, the jewelry looks pretty!  [Styleite]

Jeremy Lin is not just the basketball player who has launched a thousand bad “Lin” puns — and prompted a refresher course on why the word “chink” is unacceptable for an ESPN headline.

His sudden emergence in pop culture has also underscored how strangely acceptable it is in America to make make racial comments about Asians, whether they are considered complimentary (like “all Asians are good at math” or “all Asian women are hot”) or insulting (like “Asian men are not sexy.”)

The thing is, if you’ve never seen an attractive, sexy Asian man, you probably ought to check either your eyes or your prejudices — like all hot men, they’ve been all around us all along.
