It’s hard to imagine Robert Pattinson as anything but a total stud who makes us cream our panties. But lo and behold, when director Catherine Hardwicke presented her casting choice to Twilight‘s producers, those goons weren’t sure this vampiric hunk was Edward material! (By his own admission, RPatz had been “getting drunk for a year” before.) In an interview with Vanity Fair magazine, Hardwicke dished:
“[The producers] called me up and they literally said, ‘Catherine, do you think you can make this guy look good?’ So I said, ‘Here’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to get his hair back to a different color, do a different style. He would work with a trainer from now on. My cinematographer is great with lighting. He will study the cheekbones, and I promise you, we’ll make the guy look good.’”
Mission accomplished, indeed. After the jump, a smoldering Pattinson pic from Vanity Fair‘s dee-lish slideshow: Keep reading »
This is our Kate (left), as Stormer from “Jem and the Holograms,” with her sister Lizz (right), as Minnie Mouse. Kate says four whole people were able to identify her costume without context. They were all, of course, women circa age 30. Did you dress up for Halloween? Don’t forget to send your pics to firstname.lastname@example.org — we’ll run a slideshow of some of our faves at the end of the day! Keep reading »
Our editor Amelia is turning 30 in a few short weeks and her essay on the subject really resonated with Frisky readers, both younger and older than 30. With that in mind, we’ll be reposting our “30 Before 30″ series, which originally ran late last year, over the next few weeks. Enjoy!
We’ve talked a lot about the things you should know and do before turning the big 3-0, but until now, we have yet to discuss the things you’d be crazy to try before your 30th birthday. While you may be in a rush to squeeze in as many adventures and escapades as you can before the clock strikes midnight and the curtain drops on your 20s, there are quite a few things you’d be a total fool to willfully experience. After the jump, 30 things you should not try before turning 30*… Keep reading »
I’m not quite sure when exactly it happened, but at some point I fell in love with J.Crew. Anything J.Crew. Maybe it’s the genius styling or the pared down yet pretty makeup on the catalog models, or the simple and comparatively well-priced wedding gowns, but I’m all about their ultra-wearable wares these days. It’s becoming a problem—I can’t shut up about it. Adding fuel to my fire are some new sneak-peek photos of the spring 2010 line, and, jeez, there’s some ah-mazing stuff to be had come March/April. Check out a few individual photos, after the jump. (Is it just me or is that tweed-y, big-lapeled blazer just divine?) Keep reading »
To me, few things are as sublime as VH1′s trashtastic reality dating shows. I’ve never even slightly gotten the appeal of Bret Michaels on “Rock of Love,” but when I started watching “For the Love of Ray J,” a funny thing happened—I wanted him to be my boyfriend. Not only is Ray J majorly hot—there’s something about his relaxed, no cares in the world attitude that is so, so appealing. At the same time, he seemed genuine, putting his emotions out there. Sadly, things didn’t go so well with his season one choice, and so he is back tonight, starting a whole new quest on season two. Trust me, watch it—it will be amazing TV.
Here’s everything you need to know about Ray J: Keep reading »
Well, isn’t this a fascinating little diagram? Back in 1930, this handy-dandy little doodle was drawn to illustrate what the components would be of the ideal female screen type, based on the attributes of the 13 leading stars of the time. I wonder how she would be drawn today? Any guesses? [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
The New York Post is reporting Paris Hilton and her boyfriend, Doug Reinhardt, had a “boozy grapple” after a Halloween party on Friday night that led to what I would call domestic violence. Hilton and her boyfriend attended Heidi Klum and Seal’s Halloween party and then hit up another bash at L.A.’s Roosevelt hotel. When the couple got into their limo at 3:30 a.m., the publicity-hungry twosome were apparently three sheets to the wind. At some point during the drive home, witnesses, including paparazzi, allegedly saw a cell phone chucked from the limo’s window and then the vehicle abruptly stopped. Allegedly, Hilton got out of the limo, searched the ground for it (it was later located and given back to her by a paparazzo), and in front of a bunch of witnesses, scolded Reinhardt for throwing it out the window. When she got back in the car, Hilton allegedly slapped and kicked Reinhardt and he then used his left hand to choke and restrain her. “[Doug] was holding her around the neck saying, ‘Relax, relax,’” a photog told the Post.

Axe claims it can make women love you even if you’re dumb enough to smell like body spray you can buy at the drugstore. Yet poor, unsuspecting dudes spend their
allowance hard-earned cash on the man deodorizer all across the world. And shockingly enough, Vaibhav Bedi, after seven years of shellacking himself in Lynx (the Asian version of Axe), has discovered the real “Axe effect”….
