Huffington Post Wows With These “Garden State” Infographics

Garden State

The much-loved movie “Garden State” turned a decade old on Monday and to celebrate the Huffington Post put together some epic charts to demonstrate what solid life lessons we can take from the film. “Garden State” is pretty damn great (or at least easy to poke fun at), so let’s reflect on the infinite abyss with these giggle-worthy images after the jump … (You can see the full set at the link!)

Natalie Portman: Feminism Shouldn’t Be “Macho”

“I want every version of a woman and a man to be possible. I want women and men to be able to be full-time parents or full-time working people or any combination of the two. I want both to be able to do whatever they want sexually without being called names. I want them to be allowed to be weak and strong and happy and sad – human, basically. The fallacy in Hollywood is that if you’re making a ‘feminist’ story, the woman kicks ass and wins. That’s not feminist, that’s macho. A movie about a weak, vulnerable woman can be feminist if it shows a real person that we can empathize with.”

I love Natalie Portman: she’s intelligent, passionate, gorgeous, and she’s been in some incredible movies (and some real stinkers, to be fair). Here’s her definition of feminism, as told to her “Thor” costar Tom Hiddleston in Elle UK, and I can really get behind it! So many people erroneously believe that feminism is about forcing women to behave “like men,” stripping away all femininity and pooh-poohing “female” things. They don’t seem to understand that attitude is just another way of privileging the masculine and male. A story doesn’t have to be told in a traditionally “male” way for it to be feminist and a woman doesn’t have to become just like a man in order to succeed. Feminism is about having the opportunities for everyone to be who we want, rather than letting gender roles restrict us.  [Elle UK]

Celeb Style Poll: Who Was The Best Dressed Star Of The Week?

Celeb Style Poll: Who Was The Best Dressed Star Of The Week?

So many Well Played fashion moments this week, so little time. Natalie Portman and Sarah Jessica Parker brought out the big guns for the New York City Ballet Fall Gala (someday I hope to be fancy enough to be invited to a “gala” or some sort), Eva Mendes looked radiant at Vanidades’s Icons of Style Gala, Miranda Kerr worked it the opening night of Romeo & Juliet on Broadway, and Blake Lively rocked a cool pantsuit situation at the Beauty in Wonderland event in Milan. Which star do you think was the best dressed of the week?

I’m pretty much apathetic in the face of Photoshop. It’s an annoying (and undeniably rampant) practice for sure, but at this point I’m just like, “duh, nobody looks like that.” It’s ridiculous! But if there’s one variety of photo-altering that really, truly baffles me, it’s in the case of beauty advertisements. Are we seriously supposed to look at an ad and say, “Wow, that foundation looks great, I want to try it,” when the model has not only been subjected to hours of professional hair and makeup but has also been Photoshopped to the point of no recognizable human features?

13 Celebs Who’ve Dropped Serious Pounds For Roles

Looks like Matthew McConaughey is the latest in a long line of celebs to drop a pretty shocking amount of weight for a role. In recent days McConaughey has been spotted around Austin looking downright frail after losing at least 30 pounds on a liquids-only diet to prep for a movie called “The Dallas Buyers Club.” As the actor recently explained to Larry King: “It takes a while for your body to understand that it has to feed off of itself and that you’re not going to give it something else from the outside.” Damn. Suddenly we really want a donut.

So, what other celebs have gone to dieting extremes for the sake of their craft? Who lost the most? How did they do it? Check out our gallery to find out! [Huffington Post]
