carre otis comes clean

In the ’80s and early ’90s, Carré Otis was one of the hottest models around. She was regularly cast in shoots with the other supermodels of the day, and she dated a bunch of celebs, including Mickey Rourke (the pair were married for six years and divorced in 1998). But for all the glamour, there was also a dark side to Carré’s life. In her 2011 memoir, Beauty Disrupted [Randomly co-authored by notorious "male feminist" Hugo Schwyzer, P.S. -- Amelia], she recounted how, when she was just 17, her manager and the boss of Elite models in Paris Gérald Marie raped her.

While many of the letters were from pervy guys jerking off to her photos, she says the ones that most upset her were the letters from young girls who wanted to know how they could grow up to be just like her. Otis recently revisited those letters and responded today as she would have liked to back then. One letter-writer asks, “I’m 10. What is your workout routine and what do you eat? I wish I had your body. What’s it like to look like that? I would die to look like you.” To which Otis responded:

It’s prime celeb-stalking territory, as everyone from Solange Knowles to Rachel Bilson attends the shows at Bryant Park to show support for their favorite designers. Every season it varies — which designer will bring in the most Hollywood power. One season it was Rock & Republic, while another it was Miss Sixty. Marc Jacobs, on the other hand, tried to go the no-celebrity route this year, though Madonna and Lady Gaga were in attendance for his spring 2010 collection. Keep reading »

They Dated?!: Hollywood’s Oddest Hookups

In her autobiography, Cloris Leachman brags about bumping uglies with Gene Hackman.

“As we moved into the main course, it was as if a cosmic wind enveloped us. Some giant space magnet was pulling us together. We didn’t finish the meal. We went upstairs, flew into bed and made love. It was epic… I remember well the feisty lad he was.”

Whoa, down girl! Sometimes celebs just don’t know how to keep their big mouths shut! But Cloris isn’t the only star who’s screwed someone strange. Hollywood has a whole history of odd hookups. Here are some of the most shocking… [via Huffington Post]
