“[Chris is] a musical genius. It’s like living with Picasso and being like, ‘Should I make a little something-something?’ … Sometimes it’s hard being with someone for a long time. We go through periods that aren’t all rosy. I always say, life is long and you never know what’s going to happen. If, God forbid, we were ever not to be together, I respect him so much as the father of my children. Like, I made such a good choice. He’s such a good dad. You can never be relaxed or smug and think, ‘I’ve got this thing.’ That’s also part of it: keeping yourself on your toes. I’m not going to take this for granted.”
—Gwyneth Paltrow dishes to Elle about starting a fledgling music career, about running her website/newsletter GOOP, and of course about her rock star husband, Chris Martin of Coldplay. Make it reason number 11 we like Gwyneth. She seems to have a really down-to-earth perspective on love and marriage. [PopSugar] Keep reading »
In the world of things we’ve never heard of and didn’t know were possible, Kim Kardashian will be the cover girl for the world’s very first entirely 3D magazine. How can a magazine be three dimensional, you ask? Famed photographer Nick Saglimbeni has created and trademarked the world’s first 3D camera. And naturally, he thought of professional-picture-poser Kim K for his big 3D debut. The magazine, appropriately titled World’s Most Beautiful will be released on August 8th. Can you even stand the suspense?
Kim is more than thrilled with the cover. Keep reading »
Entertainment Weekly readers are starving for “The Hunger Games.” And so this week’s cover features Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson, who will play Gale and Peeta in the flick. Last time we saw Hutcherson, he was a little scrawny in “The Kids Are All Right.” He did hardcore training and put on 15 pounds of muscle in order to look like a guy who’s been carting flour and other supplies his whole life. And while they are rivals on screen, these two guys became fast friends on set. ”I think it’s going to blow people’s minds when they see that Peeta and Gale are actually best friends in real life,” says Hutcherson.

After the jump, EW has a new picture of Katniss for us, too. Keep reading »
Really, Esquire? Someone posting to the magazine’s Twitter feed tweeted a link to an article earlier today which read, “How to get a better blowjob than DSK – we think.” DSK, of course, is Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the former head of the International Monetary Fund, who is accused of forcing a hotel maid to perform oral sex on him. Wouldn’t any blowjob that doesn’t involve forcing yourself on someone be a “better blowjob”? Does that mean this is an article about how not to sexually assault someone? Your readers need that?
This tweet has since been deleted from Esquire‘s Twitter feed, but was screengrabbed by Jezebel blogger Irin Carmon. Esquire followed up with a tweet which reads, “Sometimes our sense of humor doesn’t come out the way we intend. Sorry if an earlier tweet offended anyone.” I’m hoping the initial tweet came from a social media intern who didn’t know any better and is getting their wrist slapped right about now.

“[The papparazi] follow every move I make until I’m back inside the house. You do start to understand the behind-the-gate mentality, the getting in the car in your driveway. But I can’t imagine living in seclusion. We flirted with [moving out of New York]. We went outside the city and troubled all these realtors and stood in these homes and fantasized, and then I kept picturing nine o’clock at night and… The beautiful thing about New York is, you have to expose yourself to other people the minute you step outside the door. There is no choice. And I love that.”
—Sarah Jessica Parker shows off her family in a spread in the new issue of Vogue and explains that they have contemplated leaving New York, the city that is like the peanut butter to her jelly. But it sure doesn’t sound like that move will happen anytime soon. [Vogue] Keep reading »
“The trauma of the whole thing has been humbling, and for the first time, I’m a little bit wobbly … It makes you a more empathetic person, and I think it’s made me a better actress. Weakness is something we don’t like to admit we have. We hold it against people, until we experience it, and then we feel more compassion for it … ["House" creator David Shore] said ‘You should get divorced every year; your acting’s never been better!’”
—Olivia Wilde talks at length about her divorce in the new issue of Marie Claire and says that while she and ex Tao Ruspoli are on great terms, their breakup has been rough on her. But it she sounds like she has good perspective on things and has been able to make lemonade out of these lemons. And that’s pretty cool. [Marie Claire] Keep reading »
