“The internet has really changed the way people date. I just went to an OKCupid wedding. One of my really good friends met her fiancé on an OKCupid-style website. OKCupid’s really popular–all my girlfriends have joined. I love those sites. I go on and I pick the guys for my friends. I think it’s great … It’s online shopping! We all get together with our laptops and have a glass of wine. Then we message the guy … If I didn’t do what I do, I would do Internet dating instead of going out to bars. In two seconds I would. It makes so much more sense … No, [I don't date online]. Because, ultimately, what’s going to happen? I’ve never dated. I can say this honestly: I don’t know what it’s like to date. But also, how am I going to date? I’m not in one state long enough.”
–Mila Kunis talks about dating in Glamour. As complicated as dating is for a Jane Doe like me, I image it would be eons more complicated for a star like Mila Kunis. But is she really meeting guys in bars? I doubt it. Just please let the rumors about her and Ashton Kutcher be completely false. She does say that 99 percent of what we read in the ‘bloids in bulls**t and calls it “bullying.” I am taking that to mean that she’s not doing anything with Ashton. Phew. [Glamour]
We never pegged Lauren Conrad as a side-boob exhibitionist, but here she is posing topless on the May 2012 cover of Glamour for the “Swimsuit Issue.” Wait, the swimsuit issue? Fifty percent of her swimsuit is missing! Gah, no one will be complaining . [Us Weekly]
I always complain about how chivalry is dead here in New York, but a new survey by Glamour and Match.com revealed I should consider myself lucky to not be living single in Boston. According to their stats, one out of eight Boston men surveyed expect sex on the first date, which was the highest number in the nation. It’s fair to assume this is having some effect on the ladies: the same study found that 26.4 percent of Bostonian women are unhappy with their dating lives. If it is of any consolation, ladies. We should ditch these guys New York and Boston dudes and move to Washington, D.C.: 86.7 percent of the chicks surveyed there are absolutely thrilled about their dating lives.
Frisky readers in Boston, care to weigh in? [BostInno]
“Just recently I started letting myself eat things from the minibar. When we were kids, we would never open the minibar. A $6 Snickers bar? But the other day I was in a hotel and I was staring at a Snickers bar, and I finally just ate it. Then it was like something in me snapped. I opened all these drinks. I thought: I can do it now. Now I’m all grown-up. I can eat things from the minibar.”
—Jennifer Lawrence, star of the eagerly anticipated “Hunger Games“ movie, tells Glamour magazine how her life has changed as a famous actress. As I mentioned here, I read the first Hunger Games book on my flight from Portland to New York and loved it. For the flight back home I bought the second book, Catching Fire, as well as this issue of Glamour, and by the time we landed I had transformed into a complete and total fangirl. Can’t wait to see Jennifer bring Katniss Everdeen to life on March 23rd! [Glamour]
Is it just me, or was the beauty for this year’s Oscars kind of a bore? The ladies looked lovely as always, but for the life of me I couldn’t pick out a makeup look that really wowed. Maybe it’s because some of the real stunners, the young actresses who can afford to dare to stand out from the pack, skipped the ceremony entirely and made their way over to the Vanity Fair party a few hours early instead. Basically every time Elizabeth Olsen, who’s quickly becoming my favorite Olsen, leaves the house and is photographed, I subsequently covet to death whatever makeup she’s wearing — she always looks fresh-faced and pretty, never overdone. Predictably the Vanity Fair fête was no exception, but it was her appearance the night before at the Independent Spirit Awards that really stuck with me: the rose gold eyeshadow she sported is well on its way to becoming a major trend. The girls in Glamour‘s beauty department were one step ahead of me in identifying the frequency with which the gorgeously gilded shade has been worn. Let me tell you, I’ll take anything rose gold without question, but I’m really in love with it when swiped on lids. Here are the products you can use to get this celeb-approved look.
“I’m terrified of being promiscuous. I don’t like the feeling you get when it’s not something that you truly want to do, and I hate the emotional abuse you give yourself afterward. It’s just uncomfortable when you’re with somebody and you’re like, ‘I don’t really know if I’m even comfortable with this. Why did I? Eww!’ I think dating can come without sex. I think that’s a really fun way to do it. Right now I’m happy to not have someone’s naked body around me. Except for my dog’s.”
– Amanda Seyfried on her fear of promiscuity in the March issue of Glamour. I respect what she’s saying about not sleeping with someone too soon, but her statement felt a little “doth protesteth too much.” I don’t think all of us feel “terrified” or “emotionally abuse” ourselves after a casual hookup. And the bit about her dog’s naked body? A bit odd. Based on this and some previous statements Amanda has made about only eating spinach and seeds, I suspect it’s not so fun to be her. [Celebitchy]
