Rooney Mara Channels Lisbeth Salander On The Cover Of W Magazine

Ever since it was announced that Rooney Mara would be playing Lisbeth Salander in David Fincher’s big screen version of “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,” people have been speculating about whether sweet Rooney can go hard. I think this W magazine cover of her in character proves that yes, she can at least look the part. Guess we’ll have to wait for the movie to see if she fully embodies it. See one more image after the jump. [W Magazine] Keep reading »

Chris Harrison Defends His Rose Counting On “The Bachelor”

“You realize how little I do on this show. So, please, please don’t take away the one thing I do. … I wanted to get rid of that very early on. Eight years ago, I’m like, ‘This is ridiculous.’ It’s not about the math. It’s not saying, ‘Ellen, there’s a coffee cup between us.’ You know that. It’s kind of like, ‘Oh my gosh. One of us is going home.’ It’s really about setting that moment. It’s silly. There’s really no way I can explain that it’s not silly.”

—Chris Harrison semi-defends his job on “The Bachelor” after Ellen DeGeneres points out that he doesn’t really need to step in and say, “Ladies, it’s the final rose,” because, hello, it’s pretty obvious. [People] Keep reading »

Snooki Makes Over A Tween In Her Likeness


I should probably find this video of Snooki giving an 11-year-old a makeover in her likeness — heavily applied bronzer, poof, and all — really offensive. She’s a kid! She doesn’t need to look like a Jersey guidette with alcohol running through her veins! But I don’t know, I found this makeover kind of adorable and silly and funny. I mean, Snooki is a cartoon character. Like Dora the Explorer. What’s the harm in that? Keep reading »

Is Olivia Munn’s Maxim Cover Too Hot For Newstands?

Maxim‘s never been known to shy away from a risque cover, and this month’s cover shot, of “Perfect Couples” star and “Daily Show” contributor Olivia Munn, is no different. The big scandal is Olivia’s see-through underwear, which some say are just a tiny toe over the edge to indecent. Dan Gainor, Vice President of Business & Culture at the conservative Media Research Center, is outraged by Munn’s bare crotch. “It’s disgusting,” he said. “Maxim has moved their magazine from tawdry to full-on pornography.” He’s calling for the magazine to be displayed in the porn section of the magazine rack, rather than the men’s interest section–far away from the prying eyes of kids. (Of course, the deep irony is that conversation around the cover has only served to give the magazine greater exposure.)

Maxim covers typically feature scantily clad girls practically shoving their crotches in reader’s faces. So we’re not sure why Munn’s panty choice makes all that much difference. Maxim‘s never been particularly prudish. And it seems even Fox News followers agree: A poll on the site found that a whopping 72 percent of people saw no problem with the cover. What do you think?

Gwyneth And GOOP’s “Day In The Life” Of 3 Privileged Working Moms

For every step forward Gwyneth Paltrow makes in her attempt to improve her image, she takes two steps back. Though I was warming up to ol’ Goopie again, after that adorable and funny guest appearance on “Glee,” I am back to full GP attack mode thanks to her latest GOOP newsletter. I skipped last week’s GOOP once I realized it was just another endorsement of a cleanse that makes you s**t your brains out, but this week I was enticed to click with the promise of “a day in the life of real working moms.” I’m not a mom, but I want to be and that work/life/parenting balance is of interest to me. Who would these real working moms be? How varied would their advice and routines be? Sigh. I should have known better. GOOP showed me a day in the life of, ahem, a venture capitalist Gwynnie met, bestie Stella McCartney, and Gwyneth herself. Girl couldn’t trot out a poor or even a middle class mom? I know she’s got a cleaning lady! Keep reading »
