I don’t have much of a sweet tooth, but I enjoy a small slice of cake from time to time. But I am a traditionalist. I prefer my cake to be of the sheet variety, red velvet, chocolate or vanilla, with simple frosting. No doohickies, no weird filling, and most important of all, no huge celebrities heads and faces. I don’t want to eat Snooki’s pouf, or Rihanna’s pursed lips, or Willie Nelson’s braids. Alas, there is a market for highly realistic and unappetizing celeb-inspired cakes.

Contrary to what Julianne Hough might have thought – and since apologized for – it is possible to get all dolled up for Halloween without being offensive and wearing someone’s skin color as a “costume.” These 32 other celebrities managed to dress up, some to the point of being unrecognizable, without donning blackface. What a treat!
Looks like Jake Gyllenhaal is the latest in a long line of celebs to drop a pretty shocking amount of weight for a role. In recent days, Gyllenhaal has been spotted filming the movie “Nightcrawler” in Los Angeles, looking downright frail. I love the dude’s bone structure, trust, but those cheekbones are positively skeletal. Lest you think he’s playing a drug addict or, I dunno, cancer patient in the film, he’s actually portraying a journalist who stumbles upon some underground crime ring. You know us writers — so malnourished!
So, what other celebs have gone to dieting extremes for the sake of their craft? Who lost the most? How did they do it? Click through to find out!
Quvenzhane Wallis has scored the part to end all parts — the lead in the movie remake of the musical “Annie.” But at only 10 years old, there are laws about how often she can work, so it makes sense that her stunt/body double for the movie would be an adult, who can work as often as necessary. Perhaps this elder doppelganger can play the role of everyone’s favorite orphan in the sequel, “Annie 2: All Grown Up” in which Annie takes over Daddy Warbucks’ business. Just a thought!

We love a good cocktail just as much as we love analyzing the inner workings of celebrities, based off the personality traits presented to us via Us Weekly, Billy Bush’s incisive commentary on “Access Hollywood,” and their one true gift to us plebes — their bodies of work. Maybe as you flip through a waterlogged InTouch, you wondered to yourself “What would Reese Witherspoon be if she were a drink?” Rest easy, friends. We’ve taken the legwork out of life’s complicated quandaries. Curious? Click through…
If you spent any time near a television in the late-’90s and early 2000s, then you are familiar with TRL. If this is the case, you are also surely familiar with the TRL photobooth, the last pit stop Britney, or Christina, or Da Brat would make before grabbing the mic and standing next to Carson Daly. I always assumed that the celebs in the photo booth were flashing the camera or making out, but what do I know? Thankfully, MTV has ALL the photos from this pop culture touchstone up on their site, so, before you take off for the long weekend, peruse our favorites from the photo booth, and check out the whole thing over at MTV.
I was going to start this post about Rihanna by writing, “Stars, they’re just like us! They go to Paris and take tourist-y photos with friends at the Eiffel Tower!” But then it occurred to me that I was not in Paris this weekend, and you probably weren’t either, and more likely you were doing something a little more local, like running errands and catching up on your fave TV shows and maybe, maybe having a cookout with friends. So maybe stars aren’t like us, because jet-setting to Paris for the weekend is a little expensive and we all had to work today, you know? Ugh, sorry, this post turned into kind of a bummer.
You didn’t know Reese Witherspoon had a twin did you? Oh wait, sorry, that’s the actress’s 13-year-old daughter Ava behind those shades, looking all movie star-esque. Give her another week and she’ll be taller than mom.

I was a gawky girl growing up. Hitting 5’6″ in 4th grade, still with a mouth full of baby teeth made for an extra long awkward phase. Now, at 6-feet-tall, I’ve embraced my stature. But I’m glad I lived through my long journey to the top (pun intended) because it made me never take myself too seriously. Not to mention, I developed a very thick skin. While some may view the word “gawky” in a negative light, I see it as a compliment. Gawky ladies are unique. They march to their own drummer. Sure, they may trip over their own giant feet while marching to said drummer, but they do it with flair! Click through to see some of my all time favorite gawky lady role models.
Beyonce may have banned the average concert shutterbug from snapping pics during her Mrs. Carter Show Tour, but that doesn’t mean she didn’t hire a photographer of her own and painstakingly edit his film down to only the most flattering shots of her at her most Sasha Fierce to release for public consumption. Click onward to see the pics Beyonce’s actually wants you to see of her performing. Flawless! Not an Incredible Hulk moment in sight!
