Quotable: Christina Hendricks On How She Got Her Signature Red Hair

“I was obsessed with the Canadian novel ‘Anne of Green Gables.’ So my mother said, ‘Let’s just go to the drugstore and get one of those cover-the-gray rinses!’ My hair was very blond at the time, but it went carrot red. And I was over the moon.”

– Christina Hendricks on going red — it’s hard to imagine Joan without her signature firey locks, huh? Also, this is further proof that Christina Hendricks and I are, as Anne would say, “kindred spirits” — my best friend and I were also obsessed with Anne as kids. Still are actually — she calls me “Diana Berry” sometimes. [Styleist] Keep reading »

Quotable: Kristen Stewart “Doesn’t Do It” For Ed Westwick

Scarlett Johansson is always one. Miranda Kerr is kind of one, but somebody told me she just got engaged. I like the older ones, the ones around my age, the Kristen Stewarts of the world, don’t really do it for me. I’m a man with the eye on the older girl, I’m afraid.”

Quotable: Christina Hendricks, Gorgeous After Gaining 15 Pounds

“I guess my mom raised me right. She was very celebratory of her body. I never heard her once say, ‘I feel fat.’ Back when I was modeling, the first time I went to Italy I was having cappuccinos every day, and I gained 15 pounds. And I felt gorgeous! I would take my clothes off in front of the mirror and be like, Oh, I look like a woman. And I felt beautiful, and I never tried to lose it, ’cause I loved it.”

Quotable: Elizabeth Edwards Relates To Sandra Bullock

“I’m not just a cuckolded wife … I think about Sandra Bullock — who I don’t know at all — what an incredible year she’s had. She won the Academy Award for an incredible performance, and more than that, she took that story and integrated that into her own life in this healthy happy way. And yet, the stories you hear are not about all those great successes, but about the failure of her marriage … that’s not who she is…I assume she wants to reclaim who she is in the same way I want to reclaim who I am.”

– Elizabeth Edwards on wanting to get back her life and identity post-split from John Edwards on “Today.” Ugh. Heartbreaking. We think Elizabeth is handling this whole situation with such class. [Celebitchy]

Quotable: Lauryn Hill Explains Why She Left Us And If She’ll Be Back

“There were a number of different reasons. But partly, the support system that I needed was not necessarily in place. There were things about myself, personal-growth things, that I had to go through in order to feel like it was worth it. In fact, as musicians and artists, it’s important we have an environment — and I guess when I say environment, I really mean the [music] industry, that really nurtures these gifts. Oftentimes, the machine can overlook the need to take care of the people who produce the sounds that have a lot to do with the health and well-being of society, or at least some aspect of society. And it’s important that people be given the time that they need to go through, to grow, so that the consciousness level of the general public is properly affected. Oftentimes, I think people are forced to make decisions prematurely. And then that sound radiates … I have five children. The youngest is 2 now, so she’s old enough that I can leave her for a period of time and know she’s going to be OK. That’s one reason. And I think it’s just time. I’m starting to get excited again. Believe it or not, I think what people are attracted to about me, if anything, is my passion. People got exposed to my passion through music and song first. I think people might realize, you know, ‘We love the way she sounds, we love the music, but I think we just love how fearless she is. How boundless she is, when it comes to what she wants to do.’ And I think that can be infectious.”

Lauryn Hill gave a rare interview to NPR, in which she speaks candidly about the business reasons that led to her music hiatus, but she makes no reference to the personal aspects (ahem, Rohan Marley) that she alluded to during her MTV Unplugged special. Either way, I’m happy Ms. Hill, as she wants people to call her, is back onstage, even if I can’t see her at this summer’s Rock the Bells festival. [NPR] Keep reading »

Quotable: Alexander Skarsgard Finds Nudity “Liberating”

“I’m not a prude. I’m from Sweden, and it’s different there. If it makes sense, I’ll do nudity, and it’s made sense every single time I’m naked on the show. And I love to be naked. It’s kind of liberating.”

Alexander Skarsgard on playing the not-nearly-nude-enough vampire Eric on “True Blood.” After a jaw-droppingly hot nude scene in the season premiere, featuring his tight, bare posterior, Eric/Alexander has been disappointingly clothed in the episodes since. Alan Ball, are you listening? The man doesn’t mind being naked. He likes it. The viewers like it too. More please. [PopEater] Keep reading »

Quotable: Jennifer Hudson Speaks About The Murders Of Her Family Members

“It’s all a blur. It was surreal. It was like I was outside of myself. For almost two weeks straight, [I was] inside one room with just family and friends coming in and out. I prayed when I’d get up in the morning and prayed before I laid down at night. … I feel like I’ve lived about three or four different lives. [My son] reminds me of my nephew. [He] makes me feel like the most special person on earth. I want him to get the same love and the same upbringing my mother gave us.”

—Jennifer Hudson talks for the first time about the tragic murder of her mother, brother, and nephew in 2008, and how having a son of her own has helped her heal, on VH1′s “Behind the Music” [People] Keep reading »

Quotable: Candace Cameron Bure On The Cultural Impact Of DJ Tanner

“Oh I totally enjoy ['Full House']. I don’t cringe at all. It’s funny and I completely embrace it. ‘Full House’ made me part of who I am today. There’s nothing embarrassing about it—maybe just the sweaters and big hair. I’ve had so many people say, ‘I used to want to dress like DJ Tanner.’ Now they look back and it’s a joke. ‘What am I going to be for Halloween? Ooh, DJ Tanner—I’ll wear scrunchie socks and big high bangs.’ I think it’s awesome. And I think pretty soon ‘pulling a DJ Tanner’ will be in the dictionary. I hear it all the time when girls who haven’t eaten all day are about to faint while working out. They ‘pulled a DJ Tanner.’ It’s great. I love it.”

—Candace Cameron Bure, who played DJ Tanner on “Full House” back in the day. After leaving Hollywood, getting hitched to a hockey star, and having three kids, Candace is back on the small screen on the totally underrated show “Make It Or Break It.” I wonder if her brother, Kirk Cameron, ever has anyone tell him they “pulled a Mike Seaver”? Which I imagine would be skipping school to make out with a girl while having Boner Stabone wear a wig and pretend to be him. Ahh, late ’80s television. [NY Post] Keep reading »

Quotable: Former “Bachelorette” Contestant Thinks Jake Pavelka Has “Gay Tendencies”

“I definitely think he has gay tendencies, not only because of the way he dresses but also because he didn’t want to have sex with a beautiful girl and never really tried with the other girls on the show. Nothing personal, Jake!”

– Paul Rosseau, a contestant from season four of “The Bachelorette,” on Jake Pavelka, the former “Bachelor” who just split from Vienna Girardi. Look, I hate it when people call other people “gay,” and then follow it up with “nothing personal,” as if being gay is a bad thing. As for dressing “gay,” please, the gay dudes we know wouldn’t be caught dead in a mock turtleneck. Anyway, Jake seems more asexual to me, in the Tom Cruise-ian “ambition gives me a boner”-sort of way. [Radar Online] Keep reading »

Quotable: Angelina Jolie Says Shiloh Wants To Be A Boy And Characterizes The Other Kids

“[Shiloh] likes to dress like a boy. She wants to be a boy. So we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys’ everything. She thinks she’s one of the brothers … Mad’s a real intellectual, which I can take no credit for genetically. He’s great at school, great at history. He feels like he could be a writer or travel the world and learn about places and things. Zahara’s got an extraordinary voice and is just so elegant and well spoken. Shiloh’s hysterically funny, one of the goofiest, most playful people you’ll ever meet. Knox and Viv are classic boy and girl. She’s really female. And he’s really a little dude.”

Angelina Jolie talks about daughter Shiloh’s masculine style, which was criticized in the tabloids, and the personalities of her other children during a Vanity Fair interview. Um, but we think she forgot someone. What about Pax? [Hollywood Life] Keep reading »
