A new study in the Daily Mail U.K. shows that French women are the thinnest in Europe, yet they think they are too heavy, and British women are the biggest, but believe they’re too thin! And to make the Euro-study even more insulting and bizarre, the story is illustrated with pics of Kate Winslet and Audrey Tautou side by side; Winslet representing the big Brit, and Tautou the petite Parisian. Oh yeah, if Kate Winslet is chunky, then I’m Jabba The Hutt. And though Audrey is as thin as a very pretty french fry, she’s probably just a naturally slim lady. I can’t help but thinking this superficial study is a poke at Scottish Susan Boyle and the world’s obsession with her looks. Can’t we all just take a chill pill instead of a diet pill and stop spazzing over weight for a sec? [Daily Mail U.K.] Keep reading »
Scary Spice is a ‘fraidy cat. She’s starring in a Vegas burlesque show, but she won’t take her clothes off. Without the strip, she’s just a tease! Especially as a lingerie model who loves to get attention for her body, this seems like such a surprising decision. But she’s not the only celeb who thinks baring all is showing too much. Here’s a list of stars who agree with Melanie B and Janis from “The Muppets,” who famously said, “I won’t take my clothes off for anyone, even if it is artistic.”
Kate Winslet has gotten naked for several movies, including “The Reader” and “Titanic,” and it seems that Hugh Hefner has evaluated her assets and think she’s Playboy material: “It’s a competitive market, more than it used to be, so she would be a most welcome addition in our pages.” The funny thing is, Hefner basically says this about any woman in the news. During Miley Cyrus’s Vanity Fair photo scandal, Hef invited her to strip for his magazine when she’s of legal age. After Lindsay Lohan posed naked mimicking Marilyn Monroe for New York magazine, Hefner reportedly wanted her to do a similar shoot for Playboy. Following her sexy GQ cover, Jennifer Aniston was reportedly approached by Hefner and offered $4 million to pose. Oh, and let’s not forget that he had hoped to get Sarah Palin as a centerfold. Hugh doesn’t seem to get it; Just because a woman will take off her clothes for “art” doesn’t mean she’ll take everything off for him. We’re going to take a wild guess and say that Winslet would never in a million years pose naked for Playboy — unless the economy gets even worse, of course. Keep reading »
Anyone can see the movie; only smarties read the book. This year all five nominees for Best Picture are
stolen from based on literary sources. We’re giving you a cheat sheet to all of Hollywood’s hippest reads.
“The Reader,” by Bernard Schlink (1995) is a former Oprah-fave. Now it’s an Oscar-nommed movie starring Ralph Fiennes and Kate Winslet in her Golden Globe-winning role as a German streetcar conductor who has nasty secrets and a penchant for teenage boys. Keep reading »
“[Young women] look at all of us, myself included, on these magazine covers and they think, ‘my God, how does she get skin like that?’ And I can tell you, I have so many blemishes under this makeup that have been so fabulously covered. I promise you. I promise you.
But I did realize a few years ago that no one actually talks about this retouching thing. It’s like a secret or something. I’m damned if it’s going to be a secret anymore. I really want these young women to know we don’t look like this.” – the gorgeous Kate Winslet to ABC News
Oprah loves Kate Winslet as much as we (and Leo DiCaprio) do! On yesterday’s episode, O interviewed the winner of two Golden Globes and expressed her, uh, appreciation for the star’s own orbs. Clip above! And transcript below:
“I love the fact that you have real breasts, ’cause in all the breast scenes, your breasts do what real breasts do…There’s that wonderful thing, you know, if you are a woman, you’re lying on your back, your breasts they go to–they part–but if you look at a woman with not real breasts, their breasts are sticking straight up. That’s how you know. God bless your real breasts!”
After we watched Kate Winslet gush about her 15 year love for Leonardo DiCaprio at Sunday night’s Golden Globe Awards — in front of her husband, Sam Mendes, not to mention millions of viewers — we kind of got to wondering if men and women can really maintain tight friendships, if one or both of them is in a relationship. Personally, I’ve never been the jealous type and have never cared if my S.O. had close girlfriends — but then again, if I was ever given cause for worry (like they had hooked up before, or she was especially flirty) maybe my green-eyed monster would come out. And ever since the guys on my IM basically confirmed that men want to screw all their female friends on some level, I’ve wondered whether platonic friendships between men and women are even really possible, especially if there are boyfriends or girlfriends involved. So I went back to the fountains of boy wisdom to find out… Keep reading »
Watching Kate Winslet’s acceptance speech last night for her Best Actress Golden Globe award, I was struck by several things. First, my God, the woman has tremendous skin. What do you think is her secret, besides, you know, regular facials, expensive creams and living the good life? Second, was that an orgasm Kate was having as she stepped on stage? If so, does that make her the first person in history to experience a live, televised climax during an awards ceremony? Is there a separate award for that? Third, do you think Kate would seem as elegant and lovely if she spoke with, say, a thick Jersey accent? And fourth, Kate really, really loves her some Leo. She loves him so much, in fact, it’s a bit, well, awkward. All her gushing (“Leo, I’m so happy I can stand here and tell you how much I love you and how much I’ve loved you for thirteen years.”) even elicited some nervous laughter from the audience, which got me thinking: what are the rules for platonic male-female friendships? Is there a line — especially when either party is romantically involved with someone else — that shouldn’t be crossed? Who decides what the line is? And if there’s a line, did Kate cross it last night when she told Leo, “I love you with all my heart, I really do” as her husband sat by and watched? Keep reading »
