Helen Mirren Shares Her Beauty Secrets

“Holding your tummy in is another trick for making you look and feel good. I don’t know why, but I do, by nature, hold my tummy in. [... And] Four-inch platforms give you great height and make your legs look unbelievably long. I used only to be able to get them in stripper shops, but now you can buy them everywhere – although, unfortunately, that means everyone else has discovered the trick too.”

Helen Mirren, who turned heads with her bikini pics two years ago when she was just shy of 63, shares some of her beauty tips with the Daily Mail. [via Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Get the Look: Rachel Maddow

Fashion inspiration can come from unexpected sources: a poem, an old picture of your great aunt, maybe a certain song about short skirts and long jackets. I once created an outfit based solely on the exquisite color combination found in my iced caramel macchiato.

Rachel Maddow has become one of these unexpected inspirations. I admire her immensely: she is a Rhodes scholar, an accomplished journalist, a gay rights advocate, an eloquent speaker, a lover of cocktails, and a rabble-rouser. She also “dresses like a first grader,” according to her website… Keep reading »

5 Kind-Of-Wack Things Stars Have Done For Their Voices

Selena Gomez told Ellen DeGeneres on her show that her pre-show warm-up routine is not a pleasant one—she drinks olive oil. Selena said, “It’s awful… You let it go down and it coats your throat. I gag every time.” Apparently, she read that it was Kelly Clarkson‘s trick in a magazine and “just copied her.” I guess if it’s working, then she should chug away! [People]

When I did musical theater in high school, we used to spray something called Singer’s Saving Grace down our throats which really pissed off our vocal teachers for some reason. But beyond the old tea and honey trick and embarrassing warm-up routines, some of the following singers have some pretty weird voice-saving habits. Keep reading »

Betty White Doesn’t Do Lady Lunches

“I’m bleeding over losing Ruesy [Rue McClanahan], who was my dear friend. But as much as I love my friends, I wouldn’t think of going out to lunch with a woman. I can’t think of anything less interesting, except hen parties and showers—and I avoid them like the plague.”

– Betty White talks female friendship in AARP magazine. So, I guess that means she wouldn’t want to come to brunch with me tomorrow morning? [Just Jared] Keep reading »

Reality TV Matchmaker: 11 Prospective Couples Made In Heaven

I knew something good had to come out of the fact that there are two high-profile reality shows about the species of people that exist in the state of New Jersey. Love! Or at least a dance-floor hookup! Apparently, Deena Cortese, the new girl on “Jersey Shore,” got together with Chris Manzo, son of Caroline Manzo from “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” at a club last weekend. “Deena was basically humping Chris in front of everyone,” a source told Radar. Maybe Chris will recruit Deena as the co-owner of his car-wash strip club and they’ll live happily ever after? [Radar]

This has inspired us to play matchmaker and set up the stars of other reality TV shows. Keep reading »

Chris Evans Walks Around In Foot Boots

So, have you ever wondered how, like, action stars pull off complicated and physically challenging action scenes when their character is also supposed to be barefoot? Yeah, I haven’t ever wondered that either, but now I know the answer. FOOT BOOTS. Chris Evans is currently filming “Captain America” and was shot parading around on set in these weird shoes. They give me the creeps, but I suppose they are quite practical for movie-making. [Dlisted] Keep reading »

Jon Stewart Reveals His Inner Jew Fro

Real talk: No one can go on “Oprah” without getting at least a little sensitive and introspective — even “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart, who spent a hilarious hour with the talk-show queen earlier this week. Stewart was there shilling his new book, Earth, when Oprah whipped out a college-age photo of a nerdrific Stewart, sporting a Jew fro. Stewart said, “That’s what I still feel. I don’t think of myself as a happening dude. I think of myself as ‘nice jew fro.’” The sensitive stuff starts around the 9-minute mark. [YouTube] Keep reading »

Beth Ditto Is Tired Of Being Diagnosed As “Unhealthy”

“I’m not an unhealthy person and I feel like one of the most tiring parts of being fat and being proud of it is … you do a lot of proving yourself all the time. It’s really interesting to me that people will look at a thin person and go, ‘That’s a healthy person.’ I want to go, ‘Come open my refrigerator and look and then let’s talk about what you think is so bad.’ To be thin and to stay really thin, sometimes … some people literally do coke all the time. Some people smoke cigarettes instead of eating. That’s crazy. But that’s ‘okay’ because you look healthier.”

– The Gossip’s Beth Ditto is tired of defending her plus-size physique to people who assume skinny means healthy. [Contact Music] Keep reading »

Lindsay Lohan Ordered Back To The Clink

Lindsay Lohan appeared in court today for a bail hearing after failing a mandatory court-ordered drug test last week. If Lindsay was expecting leniency from the judge for being honest and remorseful about violating her probation, she was bitterly disappointed. The judge ordered her back to jail. Immediately. Instead of setting bail, letting Lohan free until her October 22nd court date to deal with the violation, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Elden S. Fox ordered her back to jail. Immediately. Lohan’s court date will still be on Oct. 22. Until then, I guess she’s wearing prison garb? [AP] Keep reading »
