Mila Kunis Says Natalie Portman Did Do The Dancing In “Black Swan”

“Natalie danced her a** off. I think it’s unfortunate that this is coming out and taking attention away from what Natalie deserved and got. She’ll tell you, no, she was not on pointe when she did a fouetté. No one’s going to deny that. But she did do every ounce of every one of her dances. [Lane] wasn’t used for everything. It was more like a safety net. If Nat wasn’t able to do something, you’d have a safety net. The same thing that I had — I had a double as a safety net. We all did. No one ever denied it.”

Mila Kunis responds to the allegation made by ballerina Sarah Lane, Natalie Portman‘s body double in “Black Swan,” that she did the bulk of Natalie’s dancing in the movie and was told to keep quiet about it. Funny how the story back in the fall was Natalie and Mila dancing their a**es off, literally. [EW] Keep reading »

How Colorful Is Your Closet?

The vast majority of my clothes are black, which means my closet is almost as dark as a Stanley Kubrick film. Usually I’m okay with this arrangement. I prefer to bring color into my wardrobe with accessories–hot pink shoes, bright blue tights, gold costume jewelry–but there are times when I see someone rocking a bright green dress or a red skirt/yellow cardigan combo and I yearn for a more colorful wardrobe. The truth is, though, black clothing is my comfort zone. I bought a red dress a few weeks ago but have barely worn it because it’s so attention-grabbing.

So I was wondering: how colorful is your wardrobe? Do you build on black basics like I do, or maybe favor white instead? What color do you wear most often and why? [Tie-dye maxi dress, $49.50, Delia*s] Keep reading »

20 Stars We Didn’t Know Could Sing Until They Did It On Screen

Did you know Tom Cruise could sing? Apparently, he’s got a set of pipes. Tom has been cast in “Rock of Ages,” the ’80s power ballad musical based on the Broadway play. Tom will be playing Stacee Jaxx, an egotastic, sex-obsessed rock star, and supposedly director Adam Shankman is gunning for Amy Adams — who surprised everyone by belting it out in “Enchanted” (Note: Thanks for reminding us, ElleSays!) — to play the part of a journalist who interviews him, and ends up in a bathroom romp with him. The two characters have one of the highest wattage numbers in the movie—a duet of Foreigner’s “I Want To Know What Love Is.” [Deadline, Huffington Post]

I love it when a star surprises me with a great voice. After the jump, other stars we didn’t know could sing until they were doing it onscreen.

Mariah Carey Celebrates “Dem Babies” By Painting Her Pregnant Belly!

Apparently, painting your belly when your pregnant is something that people do. Including people like Mariah Carey, who posted this photo to her Twitter and referred to the twins she is expecting as “dem babies” (which is also painted on her stomach). I’m relieved Mariah is due next month, as the enormity of that butterfly is scaring me. [ONTD] Keep reading »
