Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Before Jennifer Garner was an A-list celeb, she needed to pay the bills just like the rest of us. In college, she figured out a genius (albeit embarrassing) way to make it rain. “My college roommate and I … we were theater geeks and we had a key to the theater department … We would go in late at night and we would use their sewing machines and their elastic and we would make scrunchies. We would make boxes full of scrunchies in sorority colors … We went door to door in the dorms and said ‘One for $3, two for $5,’ and we raked it in! We made so much money!” Garner recently admitted. Too bad scrunchies aren’t in style anymore. She could have a scrunchie empire by now. I no longer feel embarrassed that I spent a college semester working at Contempo Casuals where I also sold scrunchies. Only I never got famous. After the jump, some more really humbling ways that celebrities earned a buck before they were rich and famous. [People]
While “Scream 4″ reunites original cast members Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette, the movie is packed with young newbies — and we went one-on-one with two new potential Ghostface victims.
TooFab talked with Aimee Teegarden and Nico Tortorella about being a part of the new flick, working with the original cast and of course, what their favorite scary movies are.
Though 21-year-old Aimee (in the clip above) says she watched the first three movies with her grandma growing up, the same can’t be said for Nico, who tells us “I hadn’t seen any of the first three movies until after I auditioned. I was a bit young when those movies were coming out and I was never a go-to horror movie type of kid.” Read more… Keep reading »
“There’s one disturbing notion throughout India that light skin is more attractive than dark … When you doubt one thing about yourself, you start thinking there’s also something wrong with your hair, your body, your clothes, your accent. A woman came up to me and said, ‘I’d love to have your skin because it’s so beautiful.’ She was as pale as could be, and my first thought was, where I come from, people want to be your color. It was then that I realized people always want what they don’t have. And I decided to be happy with the way I’m made.”
–”Slumdog Millionaire” actress Frieda Pinto, on learning to accept herself. When she was a model, Pinto admitted she used to audition for jobs selling “fairness creams,” which aimed to lighten Indian skin to a Caucasian ideal. [ONTD] Keep reading »
Somewhere between her stroll down the runway for a charity fashion show at St. Andrews and her upcoming nuptials, Kate Middleton has managed to snag the heart of Prince William and millions of others around the world.

The androgynous look isn’t just a thing that popped up in the 1970s and comes back in vogue every few years. Apparently, it’s an evolutionary fact. Researchers at North Carolina State University (go Wolfpack!) studied Spanish and Portuguese skulls from now, as well as hundreds dating back all the way to 16th century. And it looks like over time, male and female skulls have come to look much more similar than they used to. Why? Apparently while both genders’ skulls looked different, the female skulls showed the most change. Over time, women’s facial structures have gotten larger, probably because of better nutrition. Ahhh, so this explains the Lesbians Who Look Like Justin Bieber phenomenon. [Newser, Science Daily] Keep reading »
