Lupita Nyong’o is on today’s episode of “Ellen,” and in this already released clip, the “12 Years a Slave” actress addresses rumors that she’s dating fellow Oscar nominee Jared Leto. “You’re actually in tabloids which means you’ve really made it,” says Ellen. “Because there’s rumors that you and Jared Leto are together.”
“Ah, but I thought Miley Cyrus broke us up. That was the last thing I heard,” Lupita joked, referencing another recent rumor that Leto was actually hooking up with Miley Cyrus. Keep reading »
“I love her so much it kills me. The truth is, and this is corny, I fall more in love with Portia all the time. I really do. She surprises me all the time. It’s what anyone experiences when you find that person that gets you, wants to take care of you, wants the best for you. We’re really lucky because we know how rare it is.”
–Ellen Degeneres tells People magazine that despite some recent tabloid headlines, behind the scenes, she and Portia de Rossi’s seemingly perfect relationship is, well, pretty perfect. Ugh, I love these two so much. Glad that at least one of my celeb relationship role model couples are still together and going strong! [People]
Actor life is rough, especially when you’re suddenly expected to gain 15 pounds for a starring movie role around the same time you’ll be meeting the president. You know, typical stuff. Watch Bradley Cooper tell Ellen the story of his awkward encounter at the White House sans underoos. Also, please note that when referring to the tuxedo he wore to the Golden Globes, he says he just “threw it in the bag.” Is that a dude thing? Is it just a charming, low-key actor thing? Like, when was the last time you haphazardly tossed expensive formal wear into a duffel or something? Either way, he’s almost too charismatic to stare at directly — might blind us all. [ABC News]
Guys, we spoke too soon. I really don’t think Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes have broken up. For starters, he was finally spotted for the first time in months and where was he? Driving Eva’s car. And then yesterday, Eva appeared on “Ellen” and debunked those rumors that she’s pregnant. But she also made a joke about spending Valentine’s Day crying and watching “The Notebook,” which just seems like a really obvious way of reminding us that she’s actually going to spend V-Day with the real Ryan, in the flesh, probably reenacting that bathtub scene, HUMBLEBRAG HUMBLEBRAG. Whatever. I’m going to a cat’s birthday party on Valentine’s Day, how do you like them apples? [Buzzfeed]
When Vanessa Hudgens made an appearance on “Ellen,” she ran into Meryl Streep backstage. From the sounds of it, she reacted exactly like I would have — by squealing and crying and shaking! By the time Vanessa made it in front of the camera, she was still reeling and couldn’t stop gushing about it. Apparently, celebs are still fans just like us! [Huffington Post]
Meryl Streep is probably the greatest actress we’ve ever known. She can play any character thrown at her. Hell, just listening to her speak could make even the most mundane subject matter more interesting. While on “Ellen” this week, Meryl’s talent was put to the test, as she was instructed to read from index cards in different voices or as different characters. A traffic report really is more exciting when Meryl reads it like a woman who’s about to give birth! I have a piece of Ikea furniture to put together. Sure would love for Meryl to come over and read the instructions aloud.
