Ginnifer Goodwin usually looks one million shades of uncomfortable in whatever ill-advised avant-garde look she’s chosen as of late, so I’m thrilled to finally see her in a dress that doesn’t epitomize a classic case of the clothes wearing you (though I maintain that an angled shoulder-length “lob” would be infinitely more flattering on her round face than her current cropped style). This pretty Monique Lhuillier lace frock, while a bit twee for my personal taste (and who cares about that?), perfectly highlights Ginnifer’s girlish woodland nymph aesthetic, but the studded black heels and mother-of-pearl clutch keep the ensemble from veering too saccharine. On point! Bonus points for the neon lips (and matching nails!), and pssst: if you’re in the market for a hot pink pout just like Ginnifer’s, NARS Carthage is the be-all, end-all, case closed.
Of all the lady mags, I tend to find the stories in Marie Claire to be the most informative, well-written, and thought-provoking. Celebrity interviews, of course, are a bit of a crapshoot; for every Lady Gaga (who will give amazing, ridiculous quote after amazing, ridiculous quote) there’s a Katie Holmes (who repeats canned answers that were clearly rehearsed over and over with a publicist in advance). Then there are all the celebrities who give interviews somewhere in the middle, sometimes interesting, sometimes not so much, often due to the types of questions posed by the interviewer. (Ask a celeb a boring question, you’ll probably get a boring answer.) For that reason, i wasn’t expecting much when I sat down to read the Kate Hudson and Ginnifer Goodwin cover story in the June issue of Marie Claire.
But I certainly didn’t expect six paragraphs devoted to discussing the stars’ weight. Keep reading »
“I have been a member of Weight Watchers for 23 years and I’m back on it right now. It’s the only thing on the planet that doesn’t dehydrate you or just make you miserable. I’ve never had a dramatic weight problem, it’s just that I tend to indulge, and then I need to get back on track so I can button my pants.”
— Ginnifer Goodwin, star of HBO’s “Big Love,” tells Health magazine she’s been on Weight Watchers since she was 9 years old. Trust me, Ginnifer, WW is not the only thing on the planet that doesn’t make you miserable. [via Huffington Post] Keep reading »
In other words, if you want to live in complete ignorance of a possible plot point in the next season of the HBO show, stop reading now. Remember how Ben, the eldest son, and hot, young step-mom Margene (playing by Ginnifer Goodwin) shared a little smooch last season, after a slow buildup of awkward sexual tension? Well, Goodwin recently said that her character “does something next season that in my own esteem is so horrible that I had trouble even performing it.” Oh dang, what? Well, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, series co-creator Mark V. Olsen hinted about Ben and Margene: “We have flirted for three years with [that] relationship. And this year we finally decided to pay it off.” What does that mean? That Margene and Ben do it? How are they going to pull that off without completely villainizing Goodwin’s character? And what will the other sister-wives say?! Keep reading »
