Cate Blanchett, Sans Photoshopping

Shocker! Cate Blanchett has fine lines. She even has slight bags under her eyes. Big, huge gasp!

Blanchett bravely posed for the March/April cover of Intelligent Life magazine without the assistance of makeup, retouching, or a wardrobe stylist. The magazine’s editor-in-chief says that they wanted to capture  Blanchett in her natural habitat, as “a woman of 42, spending her days in an office, her evenings on stage and the rest of her time looking after three young children.”  Keep reading »

My parents are cool. Very cool. In fact, in some ways, they are cooler than I am. They know they all the hot restaurants in New York City, and they’ve been to every new play. They stay out late at jazz clubs, and put together ensembles with the ease of stylists. Their apartment looks like a page out of Dwell.

However, when I was a teenager, I was absolutely mortified by my parents. I remember one time, I was a few minutes late meeting my dad, who had agreed to pick me up from a school dance. Because he didn’t have all day to wait around for me, he walked on into the gym to find me. As I saw him stroll through the pathetically ballooned gymnasium, I felt a tsunami of shame rush over me. As if having parents was something none of my friends and classmates could possibly relate to. I still can hear the awful tenor of the voice I used when my mom once dared to ask me if I’d done my homework when my cooler, older friends came to pick me up to go to a party one night. “Mooooom, you’re embarrassing me!” It’s a teenage refrain.

So I was felt a little better to hear that Kate Beckinsale, admittedly one of the coolest women in the world, has a teenage daughter who is thoroughly embarrassed by her. Keep reading »

Cate Blanchett, Kate Walsh & Kate Winslet Form The Anti-Plastic Surgery League

Cate Blanchett has revealed in a new interview that she is against two things when it comes to beauty—using one’s own urine as a cleanser and getting Botox or plastic surgery.

“There’s been a decade or so of people doing intervention with their face and their body. Now that we’re emerging from that people are seeing that long term it’s not so great,” Blanchett tells Fashionista.com. “I’m not sitting on a soapbox telling women what they should and shouldn’t do, but I know what works for me. I’d just be too frightened about what it means long term. If you have all that stuff done, in the end … you just see the work. It doesn’t fill me with admiration, it fills me with pity.”

Interestingly, she is far from the only Kate to declare themselves against cosmetic procedures recently. Keep reading »

Kate Upton Takes Off Her Clothes, Channels Marilyn Monroe For Muse Magazine

Apparently, Kates really like posing for magazines in the buff. Kate Walsh took it all off for the cover of Shape earlier this week. Now it’s Kate Upton‘s turn. The 19-year-old model appears nude on the new cover and within the new issue of Muse Magazine, an Italian “Fashionart” publication—though, let’s be honest, she’s not wearing that much less than on her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover. This cover is a re-creation of Marilyn Monroe’s so-called “Last Sitting,” which was shot in 1962 by Bert Stern, six week’s before the actress’ death. With her blonde hair teased high, Upton rolls around in a bed with white sheets, posing flirtily for photographer Sebastian Faena. Keep reading »

Smell Like “Private Jets, Superyachts, Diamonds And Roulette” With Kate Walsh’s Billionaire Boyfriend

Watch Video

Want to smell like Dom Pérignon and diamond grills? Well, I have the perfect fragrance for you —Kate Walsh‘s Billionaire Boyfriend.

Billionaire Boyfriend was released on Friday is the second in Walsh’s Boyfriend perfume line. The line is almost a take-down of the whole celebrity fragrance trend, except that you can actually buy the fragrances at both Sephora and on the Home Shopping Network. Apparently, Walsh plans to add a new fragrance to the line every Valentine’s Day.

The original Boyfriend fragrance was released last year and, as Walsh now explains, was inspired by a split with a significant other. Keep reading »

Katherine Heigl Eats Crow To Get Her “Grey’s Anatomy” Gig Back

Some people remember Katherine Heigl from her days on the show “Roswell.” But the grand majority got to know the actress as Dr. Izzie Stevens on”Grey’s Anatomy,” a role which won her the Emmy for Best Supporting Actress in 2007. (The film “Knocked Up” helped solidify her reputation that year, too.) But Heigl did not make too many friends when, in 2008, she pulled herself out of Emmy consideration, saying, “I did not feel that I was given the material this season to warrant an Emmy nomination.”

Two years later, she left the show. “I am done,” she said at the time. “It’s sad but it’s what I wanted.”

Fast forward to the present. I was interested to read an interview with Heigl today, in which she is eating some serious crow trying to get her old job back.

“I really, really, really want to see where [Izzie] is,” Heigl tells E! News. Keep reading »

Stalker Breaks Into Kate Bush’s Apartment With Tiffany Ring In Pocket

There is one good thing we can say about Frank Tufaro (right), the New York City artist who broke into Kate Bush’s home in England, planning to propose to the singer he’d been obsessed with for decades with a Tiffany ring. At least he has good taste? Keep reading »

Laura And Kate Mulleavy Of Rodarte To Create Costumes For “Don Giovanni”

Laura and Kate Mulleavy, the sisters behind the label Rodarte, rocked it with their costumes for the movie “Black Swan.” So I can’t wait to see what happens when they get their hands on Don Giovanni, the arrogant, slutty nobleman who meets a nasty end in the Mozart opera. The ladies will be doing the costumes for the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s new production of the classic opera, which opens in May. Keep reading »

11 Celebs Relive Their Worst Dates Of All Time

Celebs—they’re just like us! Despite their good looks and mega bank accounts, they have a rough time on the dating trail too. Take, for example, miss Tori Spelling.

“Back in my 20s when I was on ’90210,’ I was at a club one night and bumped into a guy that I hadn’t seen since high school. At the time, Donna Martin was making crappy boy choices, but I was determined to find The One! … [We went] to the chicest, most expensive and trendiest new restaurant/lounge in Beverly Hills … He announced, slamming down his menu, ‘I’m not very hungry. What do you say we just get drinks?’ … Four rum and Cokes and two hours of a one-way conversation later, I was way too drunk and bored … I was feeling sick. Actually, the room started spinning at this point … I excused myself from the riveting conversation and bolted for the bathroom … I pushed open the door, smiled with victory, and walked right into—the kitchen. The whole kitchen staff looked up at me. I put my hands up to cover my mouth, but I knew it was too late. A waiter rushed over with a massive copper saucepan where I proceeded to vomit the four rum and cokes and the Cliff Bar I had had at 11 a.m. into it. It was Donna Martin prom night all over again.” [Us Magazine]

Wow. That does sound truly horrendous. And also an amazing story. Click on for more celebs on their most terrible dates.
