Ellen Page Does Teen Vogue

Wow! Major props go out to Teen Vogue for putting Juno‘s Ellen Page on the cover of their May issue. Normally, the magazine goes for typically “girly” glamour ‘bots like Lauren Conrad and Camilla Belle for their covers — Ellen Page is a super cool departure. We’re looking forward to reading the interview and seeing what she has to say about her sudden stardom in Hollywood. [Teen Vogue] Keep reading »

Good Dates Make Bad Boyfriends

Don’t you just love it when a guy can adapt to any situation, charming everyone and everything, including the pants off you? Well, sadly, it turns out your hot date may turn out to be too hot to handle. A new study of 97 young singles, recently published in the journal Communications Report, found that people who are adaptable socially have a harder time having healthy relationships. A predisposition to self-monitoring may help them attract friends and lovers, but at home they’re bound to adjust themselves in the same way so their partners never get an accurate sense of how they really feel.

Ellen Page Kinda, Sorta Comes Out On SNL

Did Ellen Page “come out” on Saturday Night Live? In this skit, the Juno star, who’s had gossip bloggers rumor-mongering about her sexuality for months, plays a straight girl who goes to a Melissa Etheridge concert and comes home overwhelmed with pro-female lust. But instead of ending the skit with a joke, as you would expect from the sketch comedy show, instead Page’s “boyfriend” (played by Andy Samberg) hugs her and gives some snarkless speech about self-acceptance. We don’t give a hoot whether Page is straight, gay, or has an outtie bellybutton — but we are stoked she was such an awesome SNL host! [Red Lasso] Keep reading »

Congrats Cody!

Smart women, like good strippers, know how to market themselves and Diablo Cody has found more ways to turn a buck than pasties with tassels. The Academy Award Winning screenwriter of Juno, who sauntered up to accept her award with skull earrings, a sexy lady tattoo, and a leopard print dress with a slit up her thigh, wants to scare the establishment even more. For Cody’s next projects, she’ll be writing a horror flick, teaming up with Steven Spielberg to make a series for Showtime, and will also be writing another memoir. Guaranteed this new one will have a happy ending! [USA Today] Keep reading »

Juno Had Mad Pregnant Style

With a star-making appearance in Juno, hamburger phones have been in demand on eBay. But after seeing the movie, I didn’t yearn for one, or a gallon of SunnyD, or a copy of the Moldy Peaches’ album. No, I wanted the “Evil Taco” t-shirt Juno wore when she visited Paulie Bleeker at the track and they made out. I hope they’re still selling these shirts when I get pregnant many, many years from now, because this is what I would like to wear around month nine. (Technically, you can’t get the exact shirt she wore, because the wardrobe person dyed the shirt pink.) Who’s the most stylish pregnant character, in your opinion? [Kozyndan] Keep reading »

We See Chick Flicks: Juno, Atonement, and P.S. I Love You

Every week it seems a new movie comes out targeted at women — we’ve seen many of them, some of which we’ve gotten a guilty pleasure out of (Someone Like You starring Ashley Judd), some we’ve genuinely adored (Stealing Beauty by Bernardo Bertolucci), and many, many, many more which we’ve absolutely loathed (usually if Jennifer Lopez is the star, that’s a bad sign). So every month or so we’re going to do quickie reviews of the films made for women, letting you know what we really think, as well as tipping you off as to whether it’s a film to see with friends or one you could actually convince a dude to see. First up, Juno, Atonement, and P.S. I Love You

It’s Not Fair That Guys Are Incapable Of Getting Pregnant

The New York Times had an interesting op-ed piece entitled “Sex and the Teenage Girl” in yesterday’s paper. Basically, it brings up the fact that the effects of a pregnancy—whether it is terminated or the baby is given up for adoption—are lasting. The writer says that Juno is a fairy tale, albeit a very entertaining one. In the movie, Juno is able to go on with her adolescent life after she gives up her baby. In the world outside of the movie theater, she would have lived with physical and psychological burdens, whatever her decision had been. And even though it takes two to tango, or whatever people say, the only worry guys have is getting infected with an STI. Since they aren’t bulging in the belly, they can escape association (or claim they’re not the father). Do you think things would be a lot more equal if guys could have babies, like in that movie Junior? [NY Times] Keep reading »
