Twenty-year-old Tallulah Willis, youngest daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, gets really candid in a new video for the personal style site Stylelikeu, opening up about her eating disorder, body dysmorphia. “I’m diagnosed with body dysmorphia [from] reading those stupid fucking tabloids when I was like 13, feeling like I was just ugly, always,” she said. “I believed the strangers more than the people who loved me, because why would the people who loved me be honest? It was just a conviction.” Because she read on the Internet that people though her face was ugly, Tallulah reacted by dressing to show off her butt and her boobs; she then went in the other direction, losing a lot of weight and her curves. Only in the past year or so, Tallulah said, has she realized that her feelings about her body are only her own mindset. It’s really refreshing how little shame or embarrassment she has talking about this; Tallulah comes off as really thoughtful and intelligent. As someone who has had friends with body dysmorphia, I appreciate her speaking publicly and honestly about the illness and how it has been a long road to recovery for her. “It’s crazy to like yourself and not just like the way you look — to like YOURSELF,” she said. Damn straight. [People Stylewatch]
I don’t think I’ve seen “Ghost” for about 20 years, back when A) my mother had a crush on Patrick Swayze and B) everything in this movie went over my kindergarten-aged head. It’s probably just as well, because as this new video by CinemaSins so helpfully points out, “Ghost” has more than a few bloopers and inconsistencies. And terrible early-’90s special effects. Enjoy!

One of the weirder bits of news making headlines this week was that our beloved Red on “Orange Is The New Black” may be a little bit kooky in real life. Why would I say such a thing? Because the actress Kate Mulgrew has narrated a documentary with some pretty kooky beliefs about science: namely, the idea the Earth does not actually revolve around the sun but instead the sun revolves around the Earth. Geocentricism what what?!? In a new documentary called “The Principle” narrated by Mulgrew, she intones, “Everything we think we know about our universe is wrong.”
Considering this is the woman, Amelia reminds me, that played Captain Janeway on “Star Trek: Voyager,” it seemed a little odd that Mulgrew would be so ill-informed. Turns out, Mulgrew is now saying she was misled into doing the narration for the documentary and that she was simply a voice for hire who should have done more research. Um, no kidding? Didn’t Mulgrew realize she was narrating junk science as the junk science narration was spilling out of her mouth? [Raw Story; AV Club]
Kate Mulgrew, inadvertent or not, isn’t the first celeb to spew interesting beliefs about science. There are actually quite a few celebrities who have made comments about science that gave us a double take. Let’s take a walk through a couple celebs who we think should keep their day jobs…
It appears that Demi Moore’s new boyfriend, 30-year-old Will Hanigan, is dipping his pearl in her oyster. And that’s not some weird euphemism for them doing Kundalini yoga together (but they are doing that too). According to The New York Daily News, the Australian pearl diver (yes, that’s really his profession) has a precious treasure hidden in his penis. “He had a pearl inserted in his penis when he was in his late teens. It is pearl farming tradition and he would always joke about it in Australia. He’d boast it’d give girls extra stimulation in the bedroom,” said an anonymous source. Keep reading »
Vito Schnabel is the man piece that Demi Moore has supposedly taken up with post-Ashton. Demi obviously likes ‘em young — Schnabel is a wee 26 — but this is Moore’s non-Hollywood loverman in a while. So what’s this guy all about? After the jump, we give you the 411 on Mr. Schnabel…

Demi Moore has had it pretty rough over the last couple of years, what with the divorce and the eating disorder and the drugs and what not. Sometimes all it takes is one suckish event to be the catalyst for the others to come barreling in. Now her daughters—Rumer, 23, Scout, 22, and Tallulah, 18—are reportedly toying with the idea of filing a restraining order against her.
How do ya like that?! Kids, I tell ya. You haul them around for nine months, battle morning sickness, sport swollen hands and feet, soldier through back spams and charley horses, sacrifice your waistline, endure the yawn fest that is bed rest, and then perform the ultimate miracle of pushing them out into the world and what do you get? Some 20-odd years later they’re getting court orders for you to stay 50 feet away from them.
Almost makes getting that puppy you always wanted more palatable, no? Read more…
