Amy Poehler Compares Hollywood To A Bad Boyfriend, Feminism To A Car

Amy Poehler Compares Hollywood To A Bad Boyfriend, Feminism To A Car

“Power sometimes comes down to knowing the vocabulary, figuring out how the system works and how to work within it. You need to believe that you deserve to be in the room once you get there. Directing, producing, and writing is the direction I’m headed into these days…I like to do things that challenge me and make me nervous. You learn early as an actor that creating your own material is the only way to have any control. Hollywood is like a bad boyfriend. You can’t stand around and wait to be asked to dance. I used to say that I wanted to make great art with people I love. Now I have an addendum to that goal: to get things on the air.”

Ugh, wheeeeeennnnnnn is Netflix going to announce a premiere date for “Orange is the New Black”‘s second season?

Elle France beauty editor Jeanne Deroo has learned the hard way that, nope, dressing up in blackface to “honor” your favorite musician, Solange Knowles, isn’t okay. Keep reading »

Robin Thicke And Paula Patton Do Rock Star/Groupie Role Play & Other Things You Didn’t Want To Know About Him

Robin Thicke And Paula Patton Do Rock Star/ Groupie Role Play

“Yes. In fact, [Paula] likes to [listen to my music in the bedroom now] more than ever now. Sometimes she’ll even play groupie for me.”

Robin Thicke makes us all go ICK in his way too TMI Elle interview. So, in case you were wondering, he and Paula are having TONS of sex. Other things I learned about Robin (and his father, Jason Seaver, I mean, Alan Thicke) that I didn’t want to know: his father had an indoor jacuzzi that he used to seduce women; Robin saw one of those women naked in the shower when he was a kid; his father taught him how to play it cool with women so he didn’t seem desperate; his penis is bigger than his son’s, but smaller than LeBron James’; he walks around the house naked; and he has a cheerleader fetish. I could keep going but I don’t want to. This interview explains so much. [ELLE]

Ethan Hawke Wants Young People To Have More Sex

“I was very, very lucky. I lost my virginity to someone I cared for very much and who cared very much for me. The thing that’s so important for young people to know is that, if you use protection, sex is one of the few vices you can have as a young person.”

– Ethan Hawke talks talks sex in the September issue of Elle. His statement struck me as odd and a little bit tone deaf. I don’t think young people need to be encouraged to see sex as a “vice,” but they do need to be more well-informed about the sex they’re having. [Elle]

Scarlett Johansson Is Feeling “Meh” About Marriage

“I got married when I was young and it was incredibly romantic and I liked being married, actually. But it is different. It’s hard to put into words. To me, being in a functioning relationship doesn’t mean you have to be married. I never think about marriage. Is that weird? The only time I ever think about it is when people ask me would I get married again. It’s really not important to me. It has no relevance to me right now.”

–Scarlett Johansson gives Elle UK an update on her current feelings about marriage, which, if I may say so, are definitely not weird. In fact, I feel quite similarly and wish more people would focus on building healthy relationships instead of rushing into marriage. Scarlett has been dating French journalist Romain Dauriac for the past couple months, while ex-husband Ryan Reynolds apparently never lost his enthusiasm for holy matrimony, and married Blake Lively a few months back.

What Is Jennifer Lawrence Thinking On The Cover Of Elle?

I unabashedly love Jennifer Lawrence and think she can pretty much do no wrong, and she is pretty much the only reason (sorry!) I saw “The Hunger Games.” But what in holy hell is going on with this Elle magazine cover? Jennifer looks like she’s ready to kill somebody. Also? Those bangs. So is she thinking:

  1. “I suffered through “The Hunger Games” for this?”
  2. “Where is Tawny Kitaen?”
  3. “Serving ’80s rock video realness.”
  4. “How much longer before I can put my sweatpants back on?”
  5. “Who frosted my tips?”

What’s your guess? [Elle]

Karl Lagerfeld Photographs Victoria Beckham In Chanel’s Iconic Paris Home

It’s not every day that Karl Lagerfeld deems a fashionista worthy of being photographed in Coco Chanel’s iconic former Paris home at 31 Rue Cambon, so it’s kind of remarkable that he chose Victoria Beckham over someone like, say, Blake Lively. I totally thought Blake was his dress-up doll of choice these days. I do have to hand it to Posh for her seamless transition from Spice Girl and football WAG into a well-respected style icon and designer; there aren’t many former pop stars who ever enjoy the same level of high-fashion success. Victoria tweeted photos this week from a recent shoot for Elle France, where she appears alongside Lagerfeld modeling pieces from her new eyewear collection. What she doesn’t model, however, is pants, and that is completely understandable — if my legs looked like that, I wouldn’t wear pants, either. [Celebitchy]

“I don’t love the idea of playing another woman who loves fashion and is slightly flawed in New York City. I loved Carrie, and I don’t want to do the poor man’s version of her. And while those are often the lucrative things to do, it’s more reason to look in the other direction.”

–Carrie Bradshaw, er, I mean, Sarah Jessica Parker tells Elle that her days of playing Carrie clones are over. I’m not sure I totally believe this, but it’s definitely an encouraging thought, and I look forward to seeing what SJP has in store for us now that she’s officially hanging up her Manolos. In other news, I need that necklace in my jewelry box, like, now. [Huffington Post]

The September issue is a huge deal for fashion publications, so much so that an eponymous documentary chronicled its creation at Vogue headquarters. The total count of advertisement pages is indicative of the success of each title in the past year, and foretells what may come in the next. We’ve yet to even enter August and the numbers are already out: naturally, the upcoming Gaga-covered edition of Vogue comes out on top with a total of 658 ad pages, which marks both a 13 percent increase from last year and the magazine’s heftiest issue since 2008. At 400 ad pages, Elle will make publishing history with the highest total page count ever to be released by Hearst. The comparatively smaller Condé Nast-owned Allure clocks in with 131 ad pages, which makes it, as with Vogue, the largest issue since 2008. Keep reading »
