Kate Winslet On Airbrushing

“[Young women] look at all of us, myself included, on these magazine covers and they think, ‘my God, how does she get skin like that?’ And I can tell you, I have so many blemishes under this makeup that have been so fabulously covered. I promise you. I promise you.

But I did…

Book Smart: Oscar Reads “Slumdog Millionaire”

Anyone can see the movie — only smarties read the book. This year, all five nominees for Best Picture are stolen from based on literary sources. We’re giving you a cheat sheet to all of Hollywood’s hippest reads. “Slumdog Millionaire” scored 10 Oscar nods, which means we’re going to get to see M.I.A. wear something…

Hot Piece Of Ass: Javier Bardem

We finally saw No Country For Old Men, the Coen brothers’ movie thatjust got nominated for the Best Picture Oscar. It was a fantastic film due in part to the tremendous performance by Javier Bardem, who just scored a Best Supporting Actor nod, who plays the film’s psychotic villain, Anton Chigurh.
