I had a picture in my mind of how my next dating experience was going to go. I’d meet a nice guy, maybe at a friend’s house party or while we both tried to flag down the bartender at one of those speakeasy-esque bars that serves cocktails with perfectly square ice cubes. We’d exchange some witty words, some knowing smiles, and clink our glasses as we got a second round. He’d ask for my number and would call a few days later. Our first date would be during the day—maybe to a museum—followed by a dinner date the next week, if things went well. I had in my mind that, next time I got on the dating mechanical bull, I was going to take things slow and steady so I didn’t get bucked off too soon.
But then I met The Young One. Keep reading »
The Civil Wars are one of those guy/girl duos where you can’t help but wonder, “Are they or are they not a couple?” Apparently, they aren’t. But that doesn’t stop them from writing twangy, acoustic ballads that tug on your heartstrings. If you watch “Grey’s Anatomy,” you heard their song “Poison and Wine” in its entirety last year in that scene where Meredith sees the Chief drinking. Oh ,and Taylor Swift also picked the track for her iTunes playlist. So you’ll definitely want to check out the band’s first full-length album, Barton Hollow. Though if Taylor asks you to go jump off a bridge, don’t do it. Cool?
“I couldn’t get an interview even though my last movie made $400 million. I was told it had to be directed by a man — am I crazy? The Fighter‘] is about action, it’s about boxing, so a man has to direct it. … But they let a man direct ‘Sex and the City’ or any girly movie you’ve ever heard of.”
— “Twilight” director Catherine Hardwicke exposes sexism in Hollywood against female directors and this notion that they can only direct certain types of films. The directorial job on “The Fighter” went to David O. Russell and Hardwicke agreed he did a good job. But it’s complete BS, as she said, that she was told “The Fighter” had to be directed by a man.

Robyn has been called everything from the “queen of icy hotness” to the “Europop antidote to Lady Gaga.” I just call her awesome. In 2010, Robyn toured up a storm and released three mini albums: Body Talk Pt. 1, Body Talk Pt. 2, and finally Body Talk on Cherrytree/Interscope and Konichiwa Records, the label she established in 2005. After the jump, Robyn talks to The Frisky about time machines, how she picks the perfect stage outfit, and the TV show she’d like to write the theme song for. Keep reading »
Behold, Vanity Fair‘s 17th annual Hollywood Issue cover. Anne Hathaway is front and center of the first gatefold, which is the section you’ll see on newsstands, and she’s surrounded by guy candy Ryan Reynolds, Jake Gyllenhaal, and her Oscars co-host James Franco. Some other things I’m noticing here: Olivia Wilde and Mila Kunis look almost identical thanks to barely-there black dresses and similar hair styling. Also, how cute that Rashida Jones is bottle-feeding that little lion cub. [Oh nice. A tiny bit of diversity! -- Editor] I give big props to VF for including Noomi Rapace, of the Swedish “Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” movies. And that older bartender who’s barely visible? It’s Robert Duvall. Click here to see the image larger, so you can study it in detail, too. Keep reading »
