Natalie Portman Gets Dumped By A Band

Who would dump Natalie Portman? I want names! Okay, actually, it’s just a band called Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head. And the video to announce their big band name change is hilarious. Hey, at least they had the decency to break up with her face-to-face. [The Daily What]…

Crush Of The Day: Benjamin Millepied, Natalie Portman’s Ballerina Boyfriend

I kind of snickered when I learned Natalie Portman was dating New York City Ballet dancer Benjamin Millepied. (Even enlightened women like myself can fall prey to stereotypes, you know.) Now, however, the joke is on me. Benjamin is seriously hot, and I’m thinking I should expand my dating pool to include ballet dancers. Check…

The Oscars, Recession-Style

Actors and actresses dress up in designer clothes (though each piece is likely borrowed), primp with hair and makeup gurus and stylists, not to mention all those limos. But this year, the recession took hold in not one,…

Quotable: Natalie Portman Says She Isn’t Into Jewish Roles

Jewelry Pet Peeve: Statement Necklaces And Strapless Dresses

OK, so here it is: I can’t stand when people wear giant necklaces with strapless dresses. It just doesn’t make sense—you go to all that trouble to wear a strapless dress to show off your pretty skin and shoulders and collarbone and then what do you do? Throw a necklace over all the bits that…
