Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
You’d think uber-Catholic Mel Gibson would look to the church for guidance after his recent drama. But instead he’s turned to hypnotist Rick Collingwood, the founder of The Australian Academy of Hypnosis. Rick recently spent 10 days at Mel’s Malibu mansion and said, “I gave him a few sessions to help him with the stress he is obviously experiencing at the moment. Hypnosis can be used very effectively as a therapy for anything that is the human condition, to change behavior and habits — and also for self improvement.” If it’s so effective, why didn’t they just hypnotize Mel into not being such a rage-fueled racist?

But, apparently, it seems like a lot of stars have been sneaking around with hypnotists to solve all sorts of problems. Find out who.
This weekend, I received a single-sentence introductory message from a guy on OKCupid. “Have you ever considered cutting your hair short?” he asked, not signing his name or telling me anything about himself or really anything else that made me inclined to respond.Is he negging me? I thought. Is he saying I look bad with longer hair? I was being paranoid, of course, but the truth is, going super short terrifies me because I’m afraid I would look, well, terrible.
Then I came home and saw this photo of Anne Hathaway, who just chopped off all her hair, like, super short, for her role is “Les Miserables,” in which she plays a struggling factory worker who is forced into prostitution and winds up selling her hair to make ends meet. (She also is supposedly on a horrific-sounding 500-calorie-per-day diet, in order to lose 15 lbs. for the role.) First of all, I totally commend Anne Hathaway for her dedication to her craft. But doesn’t she look so … uncomfortable in this photo? Like she’s not happy with her new look. Dammit, Anne — I’m pretending Anne is reading this — you look awesome! You have balls I don’t have! Wear that super short pixie cut with pride! And if you need inspiration, may I direct you to the long list of gorgeous and talented actresses whohave also gone super-short in the last few years? Keep clicking to see these fab ladies who’ve lopped off their locks — and then hold your head high!
Last night, I saw a trailer for “The Switch,” which comes out August 20th. The rom-com is about two good friends, played by Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman. Jennifer has decided to have a baby on her own and throws a party to celebrate her upcoming insemination. At the party, not only is Jennifer’s sperm donor there, but Jason’s character gets so drunk that, while in the bathroom, he pours out the sperm donor’s, uh, donation and replaces it with his own. This is the third big movie to come out about sperm donation in the past year. It also was once titled “The Baster,” which ewww, is not an image any of us needed. Keep reading »
Every Thursday throughout the summer, we’re bringing you our Packing List, a guide to gearing up for your weekend jaunts, which is what the season’s all about!
Everyone should go to Coney Island at least once. (And maybe just once.) Both kitschy and kind of gross at the same time, it’s worth the subway trip to eat some hot dogs, sunbathe (we don’t recommend actually going in the water), and to ride the Cyclone. Definitely pack sneakers as you’ll be walking around, a banana clip because that’s the best way to put up your windblown hair (and when in Rome … ), a slinky cover-up, and some fun lip gloss to suit the amusement park theme.
