“When I did my show, created my show or whatever, I also created a persona on ‘Top Model.’ And it’s a character … So, when I’m sitting there and I have all this make-up on, and I’m like, ‘Your picture’s not fierce…’ talking all that and reprimanding the girls, that is a character … I don’t do that, like, in real life; I’m passive aggressive. I’m anti-confrontational; I’m even in coaching to learn how to be confrontational. It’s a character, but people think it’s real. I’m so not sexy. I know how to turn it on for a picture, but I’m not sexy in real life.”
– Tyra Banks on her “ANTM” alter ego. I wonder if she calls her alter ego Tookie. I wonder if she looks in her mirror each morning and whispers, “I am Tookie” to her reflection.

I refuse to be shy about my love for Angelina Jolie. I’m adamantly not crazy about many, if not most, celebrities, so it’s a rare star that has me totally smitten. I think Angelina can do no wrong; I love her on drugs, off drugs, thin, emaciated, on the red carpet, off the red carpet, kissing her brother or kissing Brad Pitt. I generally keep it heterosexual, but Saint Angie in all her insouciant, black-clad glory is my conclusive girl-crush. Naturally, any time she’s doing publicity rounds for a new project, I’m all over it.
This time, it’s her own production In the Land of Blood and Honey that’s garnering press, and there’s been a mass influx of Brangelina appearances in honor of the film and its premiere. In the past week we’ve seen Angie on the cover of Newsweek and The Hollywood Reporter, shopping with Brad and the brood at FAO Schwarz, and posing with Mr. and Mrs. Pitt at the movie’s debut. She also covers the January issue of Marie Claire, and the accompanying photos and interview will definitely not disappoint. Check out a few choice quotes and pics, after the jump… [Celebitchy] Keep reading »
“Getting married was the right thing to do because it was natural. It grew out of a romance and love and a desire to have a future with somebody, and I was very fortunate that I married somebody who turned out to be the person I thought he would be.”
– So why did Scarlett Johansson get divorced, again? I was sad — and shocked — when her and Ryan Reynolds called it quits, and it sounds like Scarlett may be having second thoughts. If anything can make a girl long for an old love all over again, it’s seeing them out and about looking pretty cozy with some hot new arm candy (ahem, Blake Lively). [Perez Hilton]
