An Open Letter To My Single Self

Dear Single Self,

Hi. How are you this holiday season? Feeling a little hopeless? Downtrodden perhaps? Frustrated? Bitter? A little panicked about turning 32 with no potential prospects on the horizon? Feeling like a big, fat failure in the relationship department? Feeling like fate may have cheated you? I thought so. I’ve come with some words of advice: BE PATIENT, YOU PSYCHO. Keep reading »

The “Water For Elephants” Movie Trailer Is Here

The official movie trailer for “Water for Elephants,” starring Reese Witherspoon as Marlena, Robert Pattinson as Jacob, and Christoph Waltz as August, is finally here. If you read the book and loved it as much as I did, then you will no doubt be marking your calendars for its April release. A movie about love and the circus. Does it get any better than that?

Meet The Other Anna—The Wacky Vogue Japan Editor

When it comes to the world of Vogue, there are two Annas. Wintour, of course, and the one you probably don’t know too much about is Anna Dello Russo. She is the editor of Japanese Vogue, and she is awesome. In this profile in the Guardian, we learn that the fashion pro is quirky, full of spunk, and the total antithesis of Ms. Wintour. For starters, she wears watermelon hats (we heart you), publishes articles like “10 ways to make sure your fancydress costume won’t disappoint French Vogue editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld,” and has her own perfume coming out called J’ADR. She could be onto something with this editors launching fragrances business. Can we get some of this fun fashion action stateside? [Guardian] Keep reading »

Who Did It Best? Actors Who’ve Played The Same Roles

“Snow White” is soooooo hot right now. There are currently two big-budget movie versions of the story in the works, and two women of high pedigree are being courted to play the role of the Evil Queen. So who do you think will deliver the line “Mirror, mirror on the wall” with more gusto—Julia Roberts or Charlize Theron? Julia is in negotiations to play the poison apple-wielding role in “The Brothers Grimm: Snow White,” which will be directed by Tarsem Singh of “The Fall.” Meanwhile, Charlize is being looked at for “Snow White and the Huntsmen,” which some think will be a romantic reinterpretation of the classic story. I’m kind of split on who would make the better Evil Queen. Both ladies are Oscar winners, but I personally think Charlize is far more interesting and can go sinister more easily. Then again, Julia is a little bit older and seems more believable as a woman jealous of the youngest, hottest new thing in town. But would she be able to tame the smile long enough to be believably mean? Yeah, you’re right—I’m all for Charlize on this one. [Moviefone]

Interestingly, in Hollywood it often happens that two very similar movies are made at the exact same time. Here are some other actors who played the same role and our picks for who pulled it off better. And the Frisker (Frisky + Oscar = Frisker) goes to …

Natalie Portman Eats — She Swears!

“I swear, I eat. I ate a bagel an hour ago. … I consume my own weight in hummus every day. I cook a lot, and I even do vegan baking. I like pleasure, I like joy. I’d never get to the point where I would starve or injure myself like [my character] Nina does. I’m the opposite—when I’m hungry, I eat, and I always make sure I’m eating something delicious.”

Natalie Portman, brand new Golden Globe nominee for her role in “Black Swan” in which she dropped 20 pounds from her already petite frame to play a prima ballerina, assures Vogue she does not share her character’s unhealthy eating disorders. That’s great, but as much as vegan Portman says she likes joy, she can’t be experiencing it to the maximum if she’s not allowing herself some cheese now and then. It’s what makes the world go ’round!
