12 Celebs We Love To Hate (And Hate To Love)

This is my life: after every major awards show, I lie awake contemplating my feelings toward Taylor Swift. What we have is a love/hate relationship of epic proportions, that leaves me fighting an inner battle every time I see her on television. Do I cheer? Hiss? Pre-order her next album? Most of the time I just watch her with awe, annoyed that I’m so compelled by someone who bothers me so much. But she’s not the only celebrity who leaves me with conflicted feelings. Here’s a whole gaggle of stars we love to hate (and hate to love).

Lena Dunham Had No Idea Her Boyfriend Jack Antonoff Dated Scarlett Johansson Until She Saw It On A Blog

  • Lena Dunham found out her boyfriend Jack Antonoff used to date Scarlett Johansson by reading a Tumblr about celebrity hookups called Old Loves. “I was like, ‘My mind is going to explode,”" she told a Grantland podcast. Scarlett and Jack dated back in the early-’00s when they were both students at the Professional Children’s School in New York City. This actually makes me appreciate Jack for not being the kind of guy who brags about dating ScarJo. [Grantland]

Lena Dunham Responds To Jezebel’s Vogue Photo-Retouching Gaffe

After allegedly paying $10,000 for Lena Dunham’s unretouched Vogue photos, Jezebel failed to prove their point about how “insidious” the magazine’s intentions were. While there was some retouching done on Dunham, it was fairly minimal and completely unremarkable — a nip here and a pigeon there to make the images look more streamlined. In a recent interview with Grantland, Dunham shared her thoughts on the whole debacle, calling it “such a monumental error in [Jezebel's] approach to feminism“: Keep reading »

Only eight more months until Lena Dunham’s debut book is published: Lena announced on her Instagram today that Not That Kind Of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She’s “Learned” will be out on October 7, 2014. She also Instagrammed a picture of the cover, which got kinda retro with the fonts. I can’t lie: I’m pretty excited. [Instagram.com/LenaDunham]

The reaction to Dylan Farrow’s New York Times article about sexual abuse she allegedly suffered as a young girl at the hands of Woody Allen has gotten even murkier this week. Mia Farrow, 28-year-old Dylan’s mom, and Lena Dunham have both voiced their support. But Moses Farrow, one of Mia’s other adopted children, has publicly sided with his father, telling People magazine that Mia was “vengeful” and “drummed it into me to hate my father.”

Oh dear.  Keep reading »

Make This Happen: Idris Elba Wants To Be On “Girls”

Make This Happen: Idris Elba Wants To Be On "Girls"

You guys! Idris Elba — star of  ”Luther,” “Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom,” and, of course, “The Wire” — is going to be on “Girls”! I mean, I’m assuming he is, because he ASKED TO BE and when Idris Elba ASKS to appear on your show, you say YES. You move heaven and earth to make that request a reality. So basically, Idris just asking – even via Twitter (as he did this morning in a tweet to Lena Dunham) — makes it so. It’s a space/time continuum thing. (Also, Lena and her cowriter both seemed game. Because they’re not stupid and they have eyes.) You heard it here: Idris Elba is going to be on “Girls”! (We will keep you posted on when this is actually confirmed in the form of an official announcement. But feel free to start celebrating now.) [Twitter]

Lena Dunham Instructed Gaby Hoffmann To “Dance Like Claire Danes” For Her Role On “Girls”

Lena Dunham Instructed Gaby Hoffman To "Dance Like Claire Danes" For Her Role On "Girls"
Watch Gaby Hoffmann On "Girls"

“I don’t dance exactly like that. But Lena and I have a mutual friend, the incomparable Claire Danes, who is not just an amazing actress but a really fantastic dancer, and Claire and I dance together, pretty seriously. And I think Lena was imagining some sort of strange combination of Claire moves plus me moves plus Caroline moves. I guess when I dance, and maybe specifically when I dance with Claire, it’s a bit more Dancing with a capital D than it is dancing at a club. That’s how Lena saw it, at least. I remember her saying, ‘You know how you and Claire can kind of dance? That’s what I was imagining.’”

The new season of “Girls” is off to an interesting start, especially thanks to the appearance of Gaby Hoffmann in Sunday’s episode. Hoffman plays Adam’s quirky, hippie-dippie and at times mentally unstable sister Caroline, who vacillates between being super zen and pretty unhinged. Hoffmann spoke with NYMag.com’s Vulture blog about the role, and explained that she channeled mutual friend Claire Danes’ signature moves for the second scene above (there are two clips, one after the other).
