Cue The Natalie Portman Oscar Buzz

Natalie Portman is gorgeous. And smart. And funny. And forever the quirky girl of every man’s dreams after her Shins-playing role in “Garden State.” And according to early reviews of “Black Swan,” Natalie may soon also be an Oscar winner. The flick premiered last night at the Venice Film Festival, and reviewers’ opinions of the movie as a whole seem to vary. But they all seem to agree that Natalie is amazing as Nina, a ballerina teetering on the edge when her company’s artistic director doesn’t believe she has the depth to play both the White Swan and the Black Swan in a reinterpretation of “Swan Lake” and brings in another dancer for the darker Black Swan part, Lily, played by Mila Kunis. Apparently, Natalie has been talking to director Darren Aronofsky about this part for almost a decade. Keep reading »

Miranda Kerr Gets Goopy

Miranda Kerr is turning all new agey, à la Gwyneth Paltrow. She’s created a new skin care line because she “wasn’t able to find an organic skincare line that [she] was 100 percent happy with or that contained all the ingredients that [she] wanted and knew were beneficial to the skin.” Kora, her organic skincare line, is about “nurturing your core,” she explains. Subtle subtext: I’m perfect, clever, beautiful, and pregnant. What really makes Kora magical, though, according to Kerr, is that “all of the water used in [Kora] mists have been infused with rose quartz crystals, and we’ve done that so that the vibration of love associated with rose quartz really flows through each product.” Aha! Love vibrations! That’s what my skin has been missing. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »

Girl On Girl: What I’ve Learned About Dating Women

My girlfriend and I recently celebrated our one-year anniversary by, well, not doing anything. We acknowledged that we’ve been together for a while, discussed our first date a bit and moved on. But just because we didn’t bust out chocolate mousse and champagne and light-scented candles doesn’t mean I haven’t been thinking a lot about this past year and what I’ve learned from it. Since this is my first long-term lesbian relationship, I’ve noticed similarities and differences between gay and straight couples that people who have been dating women for a while might not realize exist. So, in honor of my one-year anniversary, I’ve decided to take a look back at the past year and share a few things I’ve learned — as well as what those bumps in the road taught me about myself, my girlfriend and lesbians in general.
