Remember when, shortly after his split from Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt appeared on the cover of W magazine, playing family man in a photoshoot with rumored lover Angelina Jolie? And Jennifer was all, “Homie is missing a sensitivity chip?” Well, many thought Brad’s sensitively was lacking when he implied to Parade earlier this month that his life with Jen wasn’t an “interesting” one. He quickly went into spin mode, saying his words were taken out of context, but Parade insiders have said that no such twisting of words occurred and that his quote accurately reflects how he feels — that his marriage to Jennifer was a dull one. So when this mini photoshoot featuring Jen and her new boyfriend Justin Theroux appeared on photographer Terry Richardson’s blog yesterday, I couldn’t help but wonder if this wasn’t just a portrait of two kids in love — but also a bit of an “eff you” to Brad and his mouthing off. Jen looks pretty damn happy while Justin … well, he hardly looks bored. I can’t help it — I like these two together! [Terry's Diary]
Kelly Clarkson is a smartie when it comes to matters of the heart. I mean, she did sing “Since U Been Gone.” But now she has more wisdom to pass on to us. “[Dating is] like an ‘American Idol‘ audition,” she said in a recent interview. “The worst ones are the most confident … And the same thing goes for my dating life. The worst guys are the most confident with me.” Everyone loves an unexpected analogy, right? Kelly’s words have inspired me to round up other celebrities who’ve made great analogies about love, dating, and relationships. Tell us your favorite in the comments section.
”I didn’t want to do ‘The Grey’s Anatomy: Abortion Episode.’ Like, that wasn’t the point. I think for me the point is it’s a painful choice that a lot of women have made in their lives and we just wanted to portray it honestly and with a really good conversation that I think started in the season finale and carries over in this episode. And see what happens after. I try to discuss this a lot. Addison on Private Practice is an abortion provider. There are only a certain number of abortion providers in the country and she is one of them. And she is a character who in the past had had an abortion and we talk about this issue a lot. And I felt like it made sense; I wouldn’t be doing it randomly, it made sense for the character of Cristina Yang. And the network, I think, stays behind that, stays behind my choice to do that, anyway, for the character.”
— Shonda Rhimes spoke to NYmag.com about a recent episode of “Grey’s Anatomy” on which the character Christina Yang (played by Sandra Oh) has an abortion. Not many prime time televisions shows will portray an abortion, so this is a fairly big deal. After the jump, Rhimes responds to a question about whether putting an abortion on TV was advocacy on her part.

George Clooney and Ryan Gosling put on their fanciest suits and cutest grins for last night’s premiere of “Ides of March,” but I believe there were less friendly feelings afoot. Above, The Gosling pranks the notorious jokester by doodling a mustache on his side of their movie poster. Keep clicking to see how I imagine this went over with Clooney — and whether they worked it out in the end.
Actress Anna Kendrick stars with my boyfriend Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen in the new cancer comedy “50/50.” During a recent interview, the three began discussing the different ways female and male celebs are typically interviewed. Anna noted that women get asked about their workout routine and beauty regimens a whole lot more than men do. And Seth concurred that the questions his female costars are often asked are downright embarrassing. Obviously, these three have not been interviewed by The Frisky. We are equal opportunity with embarrassing questions. [Moviefone]
Fashion’s glitterati turned out earlier this week for the opening of the Gucci Museum in Florence, Italy. Honoring all things Gucci, the museum serves as a tribute to the Italian design house’s esteemed vision and sartorial genius. But were the opening night attendees as well-tailored as the clothing in the museum? Let’s take a look.
