Joseph Gordon-Levitt Says “Hesher” Would Not Have Been Made Without Natalie Portman

“Natalie is someone I’ve just admired ever since I saw ‘The Professional.’ She’s such a great actor, and yeah, she produced ‘Hesher.’ It’s the first movie her production company has produced, and what a cool thing to do that with. If you’re Natalie Portman, you can produce some huge Hollywood money maker, but she chose to do this little movie because she believed in the story and she believed in the filmmaker. It’s the kind of movie that wouldn’t necessarily get made without a little help from someone like her.”

Joseph Gordon-Levitt talks about his new movie, “Hesher,” in which he plays an anarchist convenience store clerk who befriends a teenage boy who is mourning the loss of his mother. Natalie Portman also co-stars in the flick, and Joseph can’t say enough good things about her. In fact, he says the movie probably wouldn’t exist if she hadn’t signed on.

Tilda Swinton Says That Giving Birth Is “Murderous” Business

“In movies, and particularly in television films, when people have babies they are sitting in a hospital room and there are flowers everywhere. They are made up, magically, and they have a baby in their arms and it’s all really lovely. They start getting pink baby clothes… [Giving birth is] a truly, truly murderous business. It’s violent. And if one doesn’t embrace that, if one can’t embrace it — and it’s really tough to do that — then you’re up a gum tree because it means you’re going to be cutting off a whole part of yourself.”

Tilda Swinton, who has teenage twins, wants to make sure we know that childbirth isn’t all rattles and itty bitty sneakers. Is anyone else out there terrified by this quote? Moms out there, please weigh in on whether your experience matches up with hers. I’m hoping not. [Telegraph UK] Keep reading »

Tim Gunn Talks Smack About Gretchen Jones Winning “Project Runway”

“Why did the villain win? Why? I could not believe it. Gretchen’s talented, and she’s not a horrible person. But was she the winner of the season? I don’t think so. The ‘Project Runway’ designers are like my kids. I love them all. I will say I love some more than others. And there’s some I wish I’d left in a basket.”

— Tim Gunn is still blabbing that it was wack that backstabbing Gretchen Jones won over sweet little Mondo Guerra on the most recent season of “Project Runway.” I’m glad he agrees the uber-talented Mondo totally got the shaft.

After the jump, Tim talks some smack about Michael Kors, on whom he blames Gretchen’s puzzling win: Keep reading »

Chaz Bono Had To Relearn How To Be In A Relationship After He Transitioned

“We had to really almost re-learn how to communicate and how to be around each other. Suddenly [things I used to say] didn’t mean the same thing to her. And so we really had to, you know, adjust our — how we did things and relearn how to be together.”

Chaz Bono on his relationship with his partner, Jennifer Elia, post-transition. This is so fascinating to me. I really admire couples who manage to stay together through such intense life experiences. I’m really excited to see the documentary, “Becoming Chaz,” which aired earlier this week on OWN. Check out the trailer here. [iVillage] Keep reading »

Jillian Michaels Adopting From The Congo, Keeping Her Hard Body

“My dossier, which is your paperwork portfolio, is in to the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Now it’s just a waiting game. It could be six months, twelve months; it could be two years. Or, it could be tomorrow! They call you and they say, ‘Oh, we have your referral,’ which is essentially the child they match you up with, and you go overseas and you get him or her.”

Jillian Michaels confirms that, now that her contract with “The Biggest Loser” is over, she is in the process of adopting a baby from the Congo. Last year, she let us in on her reasons for wanting to adopt rather than having one herself. “I can’t handle doing that to my body,” she said. How noble? This way, she helps a child in need … and doesn’t damage her six pack. [Showbiz Spy] Keep reading »

Chelsea Handler Finally Admits She And 50 Cent Were Dating

“We dated, very casually. He’s a very sweet, nice guy … the complete antithesis of what you’d imagine. I was sampling, kind of, the atmosphere, seeing what was out there, and I was satiated… I don’t really like when men buy me ridiculous gifts, especially when I don’t know them well. I can buy my own gifts. I really don’t like gifts from rappers in general, since I’m not a hooker.”

Chelsea Handler finally comes clean to Piers Morgan that she and 50 Cent did date for a little while. Apparently, Fiddy showered her in expensive gifts and she wasn’t so into that. So she called things off. [People]

Chelsea is now dating hotelier Andre Balazs. See what she has to say about him after the jump. Keep reading »
