Help! He’s Terrible At Buying Me Gifts

My husband cannot shop. He’s awful at buying gifts. He tries really hard, but it’s just not his thing. One year, I got socks. Then there were the years where I got electronic gifts—fun for him, but not for me (and no woman really wants a clothes steamer as her big Christmas gift, no matter how useful it is). Once I got a fishing pole. He’s tried to buy jewelry, but I never like it. Keep reading »

Natalie Portman Says Her Dancer Boyfriend Is Flexible

“He knows how to change when things aren’t working well. Sometimes I just couldn’t do something. No matter how hard I worked, I couldn’t do it. He would fix it to make it something that I could do. He was really flexible. Working with film and working with actors rather than dancers, that flexibility was key.”

Natalie Portman on her boyfriend, “Black Swan” choreographer Benjamin Millepied (far left). This is one of those quotes where I want to add “in bed,” like you do to a fortune cookie. After all, Benjamin is a dancer. [People] Keep reading »

Mexican Airline Stewardesses Pose In Calendar To Save Bankrupt Airline

Enough with the sexy calendars already! After Mexicana Airlines filed for bankruptcy this summer, air hostesses photographed themselves in a 2011 “sexy stewardesses” calendar to save their airline. They paid $8,000 out of their own pockets to create the $12 calendar, which is on its second printing. Last time I checked, keeping an airline afloat (er, up in the air?) is not supposed to be their problem, so it bugs me they resorted to posing pant-less to stay employed. At least these gals are enterprising, though, right?

Watch 15 Fashion Addicts Refrain From Purchasing For A Year

The idea of going on a spending fast is nothing novel—we’ve heard stories about people challenging themselves to not even buy one single thing or to refrain from buying anything that’s absolutely unnecessary. Here’s a new project: the Free Fashion Challenge takes 15 “fashion addicts” (they really can call themselves this because the group is made up of fashion professionals and students) and asks them to not buy any clothes for a year. During that time, they blog about their experiences, and some even face extra challenges. Why do this? Keep reading »

Angelina Jolie Fires Back At Bosnian Love Story Hater

angelina jolie

Angelina Jolie has not had an easy time filming a love story set during the Bosnian war. After rumors circulated that the film told the story of a Serbian rapist and his Muslim victim, a group called the Women Victims of War Association accused Angie of “misleading history.” It’s unclear how large the group is, but they’ve gained international headlines for their complaints. Although she’s denied her flick tells a rapist’s love story, Angelina made matters worse when she did not include a copy of her script when applying for a filming permit in Bosnia, which is required. She tried the diplomatic route — offering to meet with the association — but they still threatened to complain to the United Nations for hiring her as a goodwill ambassador. Surely, that’s a notion Jennifer Aniston could latch onto. Keep reading »
