Whether or not lil’ Ali Lohan had a boob job, it’s a totally duh-statement that many, many, many actresses go under the knife to fit the typical Hollywood bombshell mold. Not these ladies — and especially not Keira Knightly, who refuses to be digitally enhanced. After the jump, 10 actresses who have embraced their bee stings and said “no thanks” to silicone.

Some of you may remember James Franco from his breakthrough role on Freaks and Geeks, but I didn’t watch that show. Instead, I first noticed his brooding eyes and killer smile in Spider-Man, in which he played Harry Osborn. This summer he’s ditching his super villain persona to play a stoner in Pineapple Express, which comes out August 6. Even with long, greasy Bill & Ted hair he’s still hot, and I’d definitely spark a doobie with him, you know, if it was legal. Keep reading »

More than wanting a girl whose body is teeny-tiny, guys wish we’d just be happy with what we’ve got. A study by the U.K.’s Fabulous Mag found that men prefer curvy, size 12 women best and wouldn’t want to change anything about their partner’s appearance. Women, on the other hand, said they wished they were smaller, like a size 8. It’s really sweet that the guys don’t want their girlfriends to go on a diet, but do they even understand women’s sizes? One of my guy friends didn’t even know we have random number sizes (2, 4, 6, 8, etc.) instead of measurement-based ones (waist 30, length 34) for most of our clothes. Even so, this just shows that we are way harder on ourselves than we are when we judge others. [Fabulous Mag] Keep reading »

Thinking about Friday’s slideshow of celebrities and their “types”, I got to thinking about the guys on my IM and whether they stuck with the same type of gal, either in relationships or casual hookups. Previous to the man-friend, I sort of went for emotional musician/writer types — and still occasionally get a little fire in my belly for guys like them (sorry honey!) — but discovered that true love comes when you open your mind to someone outside your usual desires (and other such Hallmark sentiments). Additionally, I was curious what types of women the average guy would cheat with — someone similar to his girlfriend, or her complete opposite in personality and looks? Their responses, after the jump… Keep reading »
This weekend the Sundance Channel screened the 1976 documentary Grey Gardens, the story of Jackie O’s kooky aunt and cousin living in squalor in the Hamptons, but our cable was acting really wonky so we didn’t get to enjoy it. That made us think, “Why in God’s name don’t we OWN this movie anyway?” Luckily, Amazon has an amazing double-disc box set available, so that no rainstorm and undependable cable provider can ever stand between us and Little Edie and Big Edie again!

As young adults, women start off being happier than men, and then age 48 comes along and the guys get a whole lot happier than us. According to a study in the Journal of Happiness Studies, our happiness depends on fulfilling our aspirations. Most people surveyed — nine out of 10 — want a happy marriage and the ability to buy what they desire, whether that’s nice clothes, a car, or a vacation home. Because most men are single and want lots of expensive stuff when they’re in their 20s, this is the time when they’re the least happy. But then, after age 34, men are more likely to be married than women, and the gap increases with age. They’re also able to buy more of what they want. So, while guys are able to meet their expectations in the family and finance categories, we’re sad because we’re not married and still don’t make enough money to buy all of the Marc Jacobs we want. Who wants to prove this study wrong? Who’s with me! [EurekAlert!] Keep reading »
Yesterday, Amelia noticed something different about Ali Lohan’s physique, so that got me thinking about how breasts, or a lack thereof, can affect a young starlet’s rise to fame. Here’s a list of celebs whose breasts have affected their careers.
- Soleil Moon Frye is best known for her role as Punky in the television sitcom Punky Brewster. When she was 16, Soleil had breast reduction surgery, going from 36DD to 34C because she had back problems. But knowing our culture, I think she also wanted to be taken seriously as an actress and later as a director.
- To me, Raven-Symone represents a normal body size. She has curves that are proportional to her height, and she’s one of a few thick girls catering to the preteen girl demographic. But every time I watch That’s So Raven, I wonder why her breasts and the rest of her torso are always covered because it makes her look larger than she really is. Then I realized this is a technique to make Raven, 22, look more like a teenager for her roles on that show and in The Cheetah Girls movies. But choosing to cover her curves has led to a malicious debate online: Is Raven fat or all breasts?
