“I won a ‘Best Body Award’ from Fitness Magazine and I was too embarrassed to accept it. I actually don’t have a good body, but if everybody thinks so, I guess it means I’m a good actress. I have acted the part of the girl who has a very good body.” [Parade via Celebitchy]
—Salma Hayek, dissing her famous curves. Why are celebs always saying things like this? Are their standards just insanely high? Or do they think they’ll be more likeable if they don’t admit they have hot bods? Keep reading »
GQ has put up behind-the-scenes video from their January Jones cover shoot — which looks like amazing fun, BTW — and, in my opinion, the footage totally supports the theory that the photo department did some major retouching on her bosom. We wondered earlier if Jones’ braless boobs were amplified — they certainly seemed to be awfully big and perky without a lick of support. In the video we get a number of views of Jones’ cleave from the side and girlfriend seems to be rocking a rack that would fit into my B-cup bras, not the Jessica Simpson-esque curves she’s got on the mag’s cover. I don’t get it. Jones looks lovely and sexy au natural! What’s with the supersizing, GQ? Keep reading »
“[W]hen I was 14 or 15, I saw myself in a different way. Back then, I envied a life that I’d made up in my mind. I broke free of that unhappiness and I decided to change — I was going to be happy with myself. No matter what I look like, no matter what people think.”
- Robin Thicke and his actress wife, Paula Patton, are expecting their first child, but she admits to being embarrassed last year when an ill-fitting dress gave the appearance of a baby bump. [Starpulse] — They’re such a cute couple. I can’t wait for the even cuter offspring.
- Rosie O’Donnell has finally addressed the breakup rumors, saying she and her partner of more than 12 years will remain a family forever and are working on their issues. [After Ellen]
- Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian have been married for almost a month, and she still hasn’t met his children with ex-wife Liza Morales. [PopEater] — I’m sorry, but when you have NBA dough, there’s no reason living on a different coast from your children should keep them from meeting their new stepmother.
- David Beckham‘s face will be printed on condoms (which will be available for sale) at a Madrid art museum’s new exhibit called Tears for Eros. [Guardian] — Because that’s sexy and not creepy at all?
- In his first radio interview since the Rihanna incident, Chris Brown claims he wants another chance and that “at the end of the day, it just isn’t right to judge somebody.” [PopEater] — Er, except when you’re facing, you know, judgment.
Who can forget Christian Bale’s haunting portrayal of yuppie serial killer Patrick Bateman in “American Psycho”? I swear, after I saw that movie, I went out on a date with a hot Wall Street suit-and-tie who told me he was a Genesis fan. I bolted out of the restaurant, convinced that he was planning to dissect me and play with my blood. In a recent Blackbook interview, “American Psycho” director Mary Harron revealed Christian’s true inspiration for the role was … none other than our favorite Scientologist, Tom Cruise. She says, “We talked about how Martian-like Patrick Bateman was, how he was looking at the world like somebody from another planet, watching what people did and trying to work out the right way to behave. And then one day he called me and he had been watching Tom Cruise on ‘David Letterman,’ and he just had this very intense friendliness with nothing behind the eyes, and he was really taken with this energy.”
Thank you, Christian. I’ve had a sneaking suspicion for a while that Tom is really an alien. Hey, you don’t get to be a higher-up in The Church of Scientology for nothing. After the jump, some more celebrities that have used other stars as inspiration for roles. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »
“It reminded me of the Johnny Cash song ‘A Boy Named Sue.’ My worry raising a son in Hollywood is what will he have to struggle for? I wanted to give him a name that he’s going to have to stand up for. I love it; I think it’s a beautiful name.”
If you watched last season’s “Top Chef,” you either loved or hated Stefan Richter, the snotty German who rubbed a lot of the other chefs the wrong way. Personally, I loved his arrogance and the fact that his food looks delish. He came close to winning in the finals (and probably should have), but his priority now is winning the heart of a special lady. He’s part of a series in Time Out New York spotlighting single foodies. So what does Stefan look for in a woman? Well, she’d better be a drinker. “If you don’t drink, forget it. Food culture is wine. I would never date a chick who doesn’t drink.” Sounds just like … me!
