“I spent the ‘90s trying to hide out, trying to duck the full celebrity cacophony. I started to get sick of myself sitting on a couch, holding a joint, hiding out. It started feeling pathetic. It became very clear to me that I was intent on trying to find a movie about an interesting life, but I wasn’t living an interesting life myself. I think that my marriage [to actress Jennifer Aniston] had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn’t.”
– Brad Pitt opens up to Parade about his marriage to Jennifer Aniston. Listen, I love Brad and Angelina Jolie as much as the next celeb-obsessed romantic, but, like, does he have to pour salt in Jen’s wounds? I know it appears like she’s happy and all, but I would be annoyed if a dude who left me was telling some magazine that life with me was boring. We get it, Brad. Life got way more exciting when Angelina — and her knives and her tattoos and her fertile womb — came along. [Parade]
UPDATE: Brad Pitt apparently thinks his words were misinterpreted. See what he told Reuters, after the jump… Keep reading »
While performing last night in Las Vegas, Selena Gomez sure seemed to go out of her way to show off the word “Justin,” written across her wrist in a black pen along with a heart in an ode to her boyfriend, Justin Bieber. Shall we take bets on how long she waits before making it permanent? [Huffington Post]

With films “Drive” and “The Ides of March” about to debut, 30-year-old Ryan Gosling’s about to go from being known as “the dude from ‘The Notebook’” to “the hottest actor in Hollywood.” So what does that mean for Gosling, besides being able to negotiate $20-million film contracts? Scoring tons of women. That’s right, Leonardo finally has some serious competition, but fortunately for Leo, who prefers to date women while their in their physical prime (he’s currently tied to “Gossip Girl” star Blake Lively), Gosling likes his women more mature and worldly — in other words, older. It seems he’s finally gotten over his former long-term beau, 32-year-old Rachel McAdams, by falling for 37-year-old Eva Mendes. Here are the hot Hollywood couples who remind us why we liked “The Graduate” so much. Read more… Keep reading »
If you, like myself, have been watching “Bachelor Pad” hoping that Holly Durst would see the light and take back sweet, sincere Michael Stagliano, give up now. It’s not going to happen. Word comes today that Holly is engaged to boring and slightly leery dentist Blake Julian, who she met on the show. Holly made the difficult choice to vote him off last week and sent him away with a note that read, “This isn’t the end for us.” Apparently she meant it.
Okay, maybe I am being a little cynical here. Keep reading »
“After a honeymoon for 29 years, we decided to ruin it and get married … [The passage of gay marriage in New York] did have an influence on me — it brought to my consciousness why gays needed to get married. And I thought it was a good reason for me to get married. And so did Steve, so we did it … If he was going to get down on one knee, I wanted it be during the time when he could still get up from one knee.”
—Joy Behar explains why she and boyfriend Steve Janowitz decided to get married last month, after being together for 29 years without tying the knot. Funny. I so want to know if, after nearly three decades together, being newlyweds feels any different. Tell us, Joy. [CNN]

Now this is majorly awkies. A week after Kris Humphries tied the knot with Kim Kardashian, he ended up a flight from Los Angeles to New Orleans on Sunday with none other than Ray J, Kim’s ex. More specifically, the ex with whom she recorded the sex tape which made her famous and that an anonymous bidder purchased this week so that it would no longer be available online. As Page Six reports, the two guys ended up across the aisle from each other in first class. After a few minutes of silence, Kris moved to another seat. A few minutes later, Ray J walked up to him and congratulated him on his recent nuptials.
After the jump, we imagine how this conversation went. Keep reading »
Well, it’s official. The Jennifer Aniston Womb Watch has begun. Jen and her boyfriend, Justin Theroux, who never met a vintage punk rock T-shirt he didn’t like, were spotted going to the doctor this week. When they left, Jen was sucking on a lollipop. Clearly, she must be with child. Why? According to x17Online.com, “It’s common practice in gynecology offices to give candy to a woman having blood work early in her first trimester so when a nurse draws blood, the patient’s blood sugar level is high enough that she doesn’t pass out.” Mind you, it’s not actually confirmed that she went to see a gyno. She could have been at the podiatrist and stopped to buy a sucker at the gift shop. Ugh. Anyway, one thing I did learn — the next time I want to trick a dude into wondering if I’m pregnant, I’m going to dramatically pull out a Blow Pop every time I see him. Bwahahaha!

“I had the flu. I had to be quarantined from the children for two days. I was in the attic of a house in France. I was isolated, pacing. I don’t watch TV and I wasn’t reading anything. So I started writing. I went from the beginning to the end. I didn’t know any other way. [Brad read it and] said, ‘You know, honey, it’s not that bad.’ … It was something I didn’t trust out of my hands, so by default I ended up putting myself in as director. I’ve never felt more exposed. My whole career, I’ve hidden behind other people’s words. Now it’s me talking. You feel ridiculous when you get something wrong.”
—Angelina Jolie talks to Vanity Fair about penning the script for “In the Land of Blood and Honey” and deciding to direct the film herself. Fascinating story. But to me this is a study in how different people can hear very different things in the exact same words. Angelina obviously took Brad Pitt‘s reaction to her script to be encouraging. But if my significant other said to me that something I wrote was “not that bad,” I would take it to be his way of telling me it kind of sucks and needs a lot of work. Perhaps it’s time for one of us to reframe? [Vanity Fair] Keep reading »
Announcing you’re pregnant on the cover of People
? That’s for amateurs. If you’re Beyonce, you tell the world your womb is implanted with Jay-Z’s seed by unbuttoning your sequined jacket after performing “Love on Top,” at the MTV VMAs, rubbing your belly, and dramatically telling the crowd, “I want you to feel the love that’s growing inside me.” Just a little while before, Beyonce walked the red carpet in a voluminous caftan and reportedly told a reporter that she was expecting. Her rep confirmed the news, while husband Jay-Z looked positively gleeful as he cheered on her performance. I love these two and am psyched they’re makin’ babies together. Mazel tov! [Huffington Post

Nowadays, things have been looking up for Jennifer Aniston in the love department. She’s been dating Justin Theroux for a little while now, going on vacations and what not, and things seem to be going pretty good for the both of them.
Of course, about six years ago, in the midst of discovering her husband of five years had been cheating on her and then hearing him explain he loved someone else, Jen was likely singing a different tune. And quite honestly, we’d love to leave this sad story in the past where it belongs, but some new insider scoop means we must momentarily dive back into the thick turbulence of yesteryear.
