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.

There was once a time when a woman’s pregnant belly was shrouded in over-sized fabric, concealed from the world. Nowadays, pregnancy is a good excuse to rock even tighter clothes to emphasize the growing waistline (“That’s not a burrito, that’s a baby!”) or, if you’re famous, to chuck the cover-ups entirely and show off your swelling belly on the cover of a magazine.

We can thank Demi Moore for this particular pose. Vanity Fair 1991 anyone? Click through to see some other sexy stars who’ve graced magazine covers while with child. [People]
“Just recently I started letting myself eat things from the minibar. When we were kids, we would never open the minibar. A $6 Snickers bar? But the other day I was in a hotel and I was staring at a Snickers bar, and I finally just ate it. Then it was like something in me snapped. I opened all these drinks. I thought: I can do it now. Now I’m all grown-up. I can eat things from the minibar.”
—Jennifer Lawrence, star of the eagerly anticipated “Hunger Games“ movie, tells Glamour magazine how her life has changed as a famous actress. As I mentioned here, I read the first Hunger Games book on my flight from Portland to New York and loved it. For the flight back home I bought the second book, Catching Fire, as well as this issue of Glamour, and by the time we landed I had transformed into a complete and total fangirl. Can’t wait to see Jennifer bring Katniss Everdeen to life on March 23rd! [Glamour]
Well, this is officially happening. I’m not quite sure what to say about it other than my uterus is weeping. For some reason, whenever a celeb who’s significantly younger than me (Hilary Duff, Kristin Cavallari, etc.) gets knocked up, I take it as a personal affront. Leave one for me, guys. Anyway, as for our favorite stuffed meatball, Snooki says, “I have different priorities now. I don’t care what anybody else thinks.” [Us Weekly]
