Knock on wood, but Jared Leto and his beautiful ombre man bun will probably be taking home an Academy Award tonight for playing a trans woman in “Dallas Buyers Club,” but he probably won’t get as much time on stage to say thank you as he did at last night’s Film Independent Spirit Awards. I loved his full acceptance speech — which included a funny but still swoon-worthy shoutout to maybe-paramour Lupita Nyong’o — so much that I wanted to post the full transcript, which you can find after the jump. Watch the edited version, which aired on television, above. Good luck tonight, Jared! We’re rooting for you. Keep reading »

The big night is tonight — the Academy Awards! — but for the independent film industry, last night’s Indie Spirit Awards are an even more meaningful occasion, as they gather to celebrate the films that made it to the screen despite very little funds or backing. Interestingly, all of last night’s big winners are frontrunners in their categories at tonight’s Academy Awards, with Jared Leto and Matthew McConaughey (“Dallas Buyers Club”), Cate Blanchett (“Blue Jasmine”), and Lupita Nyong’o and “12 Years A Slave” very likely to take home gold men. But fashion-wise, things couldn’t be more different. Saving the gowns for later, the women at last night’s Indie Spirit Awards went a little crazy with color, hem-length, and prints, while some did away with dresses altogether. Click through to see who had the most effortless hippie vibe, who is dressing like a newly single lady, and which actress is rumored to have worn her pit hair with pride…
Alessandra Ambrosio ensemble here is not just an outfit, it’s a lifestyle. I mean, look at her! She’s wearing white jeans while wandering around town with a perfectly coordinated white bicycle and summer-y espadrilles. I would really like to have the kind of life where I coordinate my charming transportation choices with my pants, and am also able to ride said transportation choice without getting mud splatters on my butt. Ideally, this post would be a Life Stealer, but I guess I can start by stealing her outfit, and hope the rest follows? If you’d like to join me in recreating this
lifestyle ensemble, get all the shopping details after the jump! (Bike not included.)

A titty warmer? A breast merkin? Funbag fur? A boobler? “It’s like a muffler, but for boobs!” said Ami. John DeVore volunteered “mammoth unibrow,” “Muppet tits,” and my personal favorite, “Giant Boob Tribble.” I’m not sure of its purpose, besides keeping your breasts warm to the point of sweating profusely. I hate it. That is all. [Photos: Fame/Flynet]
Vince Gilligan may be getting (some of) the gang back together! According to Rolling Stone, Aaron Paul, who played Jesse Pinkman on “Breaking Bad,” said he was in “serious talks” to appear in show’s upcoming spin-off, “Better Call Saul.”
“Anything Vince is involved with, I’m there,” Paul said. “I owe him my entire career. And the idea of jumping into the skin of Jesse Pinkman again in his lighter days — because it’s all a prequel — it would be fun.” Keep reading »
Earlier today, I tweeted the following: “Ugh, Jared Leto is so hot but he gets less so every time I am reminded he hangs out with Terry Richardson.” And I’m still totally sad that Jared continues to be friends with the predatory pervtographer, but I might have to take back the part about him being less attractive because of it. Because I just saw these photos of the man formerly known as Jordan Catalano and, in the words of Angela Chase, IT HURTS TO LOOK AT HIM. He is that pretty. Oh god, and the second photo, with the, gulp, man bun? That is legit jerk-off material for me. I’m still disappointed in your friendship choices, Jared, but your beauty cannot be denied. [Flaunt]
In 1931, Winston Churchill predicted a future in which all the world’s meat would be grown in labs. But he never predicted they would be grown from celebrity tissue samples. Bitelab.org, a company that grows artisanal salami from tissue samples, wants us all to eat more celebrity meat. They have been hard at work developing the technology to create high-quality charcuterie from your favorite celebrities’ DNA. All it takes is a quick biopsy of, say, James Franco. In a process by which they isolate stem cells, they grow cultures into in-vitro meats, which can be dry aged and spiced into the finest sandwich stuffers. Keep reading »
Yetsreday ESSENCE magazine bestowed Lupita Nyong’o the Best Breakthrough Performance Award at their 2014 Black Women in Hollywood luncheon for her Oscar-nominated performance in “12 Years A Slave.”
While receive this honor, Lupita gave an acceptance speech which was both heartbreaking and inspiring. She spoke about Black beauty and the times as a young adult that she felt unattractive for being so dark-skinned. She only saw lighter-skinned women on TV; as a child and adolescent, Lupita shared, she used to pray to God to make her skin lighter so she could be as desirable as them. Today, as a successful actress, she hears from young women who feel that same way right now.
Here is Lupita Nyong’o's full speech from last night, via ESSENCE. It’s extremely touching and well-worth a read: Keep reading »
