“We’re not in daily communication. But we wish nothing but wonderful things for each other. Nobody did anything wrong. You know what I mean? It was just like, sometimes things [happen]. If the world only could just stop with the stupid, soap-opera bullshit. There’s no story. I mean, at this point it’s starting to become — please, give more credit to these human beings.”
Jennifer Aniston is just as over hearing about her divorce from Brad Pitt as the rest of us. Despite the fact that it was ten long years ago, Aniston is still being depicted by tabloids as a sad loner who lost everything when Pitt left her for Angelina Jolie. It’s always been presumed that he cheated on her with Jolie, but in her latest interview with The Hollywood Reporter, she attempted to set the record straight. It’d be idealistic of me to think this will finally be the end of hearing about this beaten-to-death topic, but I’m holding out hope! [Pink Is The New Blog] [Image via Getty]
I am so proud to be in a movie that is joyful and thoughtful and depicts a modern and authentic experience of unplanned pregnancy…Gillian Robespierre and Elizabeth Holm, who wrote this movie, assert that even while we’re fighting for our rights we can do so creatively. Activism and creative expression can go together.
Jenny Slate is one of those celebrities that I want to either be BFFs with or wear as a skin suit, it’s kind of hard to tell. I think she’s hilarious and uniquely beautiful and cool and nice-seemingly, and she made one of my favorite movies last year, “Obvious Child.” Last night, Jenny — we’re on a first name basis — won Best Actress in a Comedy at the Critics Choice Awards for her work in the film, which is about how a twentysomething woman handles an unexpected pregnancy. While on stage, Jenny took the opportunity to emphasize that the film is a form of pro-choice activism. Love it. [Jezebel]
It feels so weird to talk about because I don’t know how to answer. A lot of people have compared me to other people who came up when I came up and I don’t know what it is. I think part of it is just me, maybe my family, and the friends that I’ve kept. No one really let me get away with being treated different in my immediate circle of people in my life. That said, I definitely had rough patches. I grew up in the industry. Being an 18-year-old doing what I was doing, even a 20-year-old, you’re searching for your identity. I did it in a public way and it kind of messed with my privacy. I had to take a really long break from everything. I was like, ‘I don’t really care about getting the best role anymore or making a career choice, I just need to step back, be at home, and like hang out like a normal 20-something-year-old person.’
Hilary Duff: she’s a normal, just like us!

“Placenta, placenta, placenta. Just eat that s–t up, and it does a girl good. … I made smoothies out of it for three weeks. I had a home birth, so my midwife and my doula took it and cut it up into 20 pieces and froze it, and every day, I put it in a blender with strawberries and blueberries and guava juice and a banana, and I drank that shit up.”
Mmm, placenta! It’s what’s for breakfast! “Girls” and “Transparent” actress Gaby Hoffmann welcomed her first child, Rosemary, in November, endorsed the benefits of ingesting the nutrient-rich afterbirth in an interview with People, saying that it boosted her energy levels and milk production. I love Gaby Hoffmann, and drinking a placenta smoothie is perhaps the most Gaby Hoffmann thing of all — I’m frankly surprised she doesn’t drink them all the time. I’ve got a little hippie in me too, so I could totally get behind popping a few placenta pills, but smoothies are taking it just a litttttttttttttle too far for me. Sorry, Gaby, but I just refuse to believe you when you say “you don’t taste it.” But do you, girl! [People] [Photos: Getty Images/Midwife4Him]
“Chris Pine [who plays the prince] was telling me that most schools in America only do the first act of the play, where everything is happy ever after. And it’s just sad that we’re choosing to coddle our children that way, because no one’s more perceptive than a child…Bambi loses his mother, Dumbo is wrenched away from his mother, who is chained up and tormented and bullied. It used to be darker and more challenging. Nobody goes through life unscathed. If you want to fairytale the shit out of everything, you’re doing everyone a disservice.”
Emily Blunt makes no apologies for the darker themes in the Disney adaptation of “Into The Woods,” which she starred in as the Baker’s Wife. As the musical explores, sometimes happily ever after comes with regrets, and Blunt sees no point in hiding that reality from kids. As she says, life isn’t easy, and sweeping that under the rug only sets people up for disappointment and stress. Also, is “fairytale the shit out of everything” not the best phrase ever? Somebody copyright that or something. [Guardian UK] [Image via Getty]
