“I haven’t worked out in a couple of months because I just didn’t feel like it. But now I’m going on vacation and I know what they’re going to do — [the tabloids] are going to put a circle around my ass and do one of those crazy magnified pictures saying, ‘What happened to her ass? It’s a bag of cheese. I would just like to say it’s a fine triple crème brie! Right when they zoom in I should have a tattoo on my ass that says, ‘You wish you could get a bite of this.’”
Haters, take note: Sharon Stone does not give a damn what you think about her ass. I can’t imagine how much it would suck to have to anticipate gossip rags’ reaction to your beach vacation — just having to deal with being tagged in unflattering Instagram photos is annoying enough! She pretty much told E! News that the tabloids can suck it, because her body is just fine as it is. [Jezebel] [Photo: Getty Images]
“Like every woman is dying to give birth! I don’t think so. Nobody asks guys that. And you go into a supermarket and every tabloid is like, ‘Pregnant and Alone!’ Stuck in the 1950s ideal of how a woman should live her life. This brings out the fiery feminist in me.”
Zooey Deschanel has always been pretty upfront about her disinterest in having children and in August’s InStyle, she calls out the tabloids for their complicity. You tell ‘em, sister! [InStyle]
“Everybody needs a day off, everybody needs the right to say ‘hey, you know what I need a minute to breathe. I want to bring my family to the movies without 30 motherfuckers following me. Everybody here, they like sex right? Sex is great when you and your partner be like ‘hey, this is what we both want to do.’ But if one of those people don’t want to do that, what does that constitute, that’s called rape. That is called violation.”
Add Kanye West to the list of celebrities who need better analogies to describe invasions into their personal life which come with fame. This is what Kanye said onstage yesterday at the Wireless Festival in Birmingham, UK, and well, do I really need to say more? Much like when Charlize Theron compared Googling herself with “feeling raped,” the public is snapping back at Kanye — quite rightly. Think of another analogy, celebs. [Mirror UK] [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
My husband, friend and partner of 16 years and I have decided to get a divorce.
Ty and I have always tried to live the most authentic life possible, and we wanted our separation as husband and wife to be nothing less loving than the way we came together. For some time we have been engaged in a private and difficult, but thoughtful and tender undoing of ourselves. Allowing ourselves the time and space to redefine what we are to each other with love rather than malice.
We have been so aware that it is easiest to use the inertia of anger to leverage two souls apart who have been bound together by so much living. By a child. But we did not want anger to burn the ties that bound us. Instead we have chosen the much more difficult task of undoing ourselves stitch by stitch, and releasing each other with love so that we may take on our new form: dear friends and devoted co-parents of our beloved son Kase. We have no desire to damage ourselves and each other in the process. Who better than each other to bear witness to the heart ache of redefining our family? And who better as ally, while we learn to redraw ourselves in whatever new shape we find as separate people who are still striving to be the best versions of ourselves- as humans and as parents.
This is part of Jewel‘s personal statement on her web site announcing a divorce from her husband of six years, rodeo champion Ty Murray. Oh, but it continues: Keep reading »
“My boobs are fake, my hair’s fake, but what is real is my voice and my heart.”
Dolly Parton made her debut at the Glastonbury Music Festival this year, and due to a slight audio/visual delay in her televised performance, viewers (and various news sources) accused her of lip syncing. Dolly set the record straight with this quote in The Sun that will surely go down in history as a perfect summation of Dolly Parton. Oh, and check out her performance of “Jolene” above if you don’t believe her. That gorgeous voice is as real as it gets. [Telegraph]
“It’s obviously the greatest movie ever made.”
I adore “Love Actually,” and I will never understand why it’s attracted such a legion of haters, but I think Keira Knightley is going a bit too far in saying it’s best movie ever. In an interview with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” interviewers mentioned film critics’ long-lasting conundrum over whether the rom com was a blessing or a curse to Hollywood, and Knightley insisted “Love Actually” should be shown on cable more often than it already is. I’m really hoping she was joking. Keira, there are so many quality movies out there that don’t involve Hugh Grant dancing and creepy doorstep love confessions! Maybe her new film “Begin Again” will even be a contender, if only for scenes of her with wonderful Mark Ruffalo and all that summery footage of New York City. [TIME]
“In my 20s I used to cry about why I wasn’t thinner or prettier … [I] used to cry about things like, ‘I wish my hair would grow faster. I wish I had different shoes.’ I was an idiot. … Sure, criticism can sometimes still get to me. Some things are so malicious, they knock the wind out of you … It’s like I’m managing to achieve all this success in spite of my affliction … Would you ever put that in the headline for a male star?”
Well, I’ll admit that The Frisky is part of the problem here, because most of what we post about Melissa McCarthy has to do with her weight, too. The media does have a tendency to cover successful larger women just as successful larger women. I get why the media does it — because bigger, body positive role models are still relatively rare. But Melissa has a point: bigger male actors aren’t dealing with this shit. Melissa deserves to be covered the same way as other funny ladies, like Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Focus on the funny, not on the size. [People]
“Our whole family danced our butts off to ['I Want Your Sex'] in the living room. No idea what it meant! We just knew it made us move.”
Kate Hudson shared the “soundtrack of her life” in this month’s InStyle, and the song she cited as the defining jam of her childhood was none other than the kid-friendly George Michael hit, “I Want Your Sex.” The image of Kurt, Goldie and the kids rocking out and singing along to lyrics like, “What’s your definition of dirty, baby?” is cracking me up. Ah, the ignorant bliss of being 8 years-old. [InStyle]
“I dyed my hair blonde because I wanted to feel better about myself. I do like it blonde, but it doesn’t make you happy. The truth is: it was a long hard winter and I thought, maybe this will change my life. But it never does. I should know that by now, I’m 36 years old.”
When Maggie Gyllenhaal dyed her pixie cut a lovely shade of blonde earlier this year, I assumed it must be for a role. But in a recent interview The Independent, Gyllenhaal confessed that she had turned to the (peroxide) bottle in an attempt to ease her seasonal depression. She’s right that a new look rarely has a lasting impact on one’s mood, but thank goodness the blonde actually looked nice on her. (She’s since gone back to being a brunette.) I once ruined a perfectly decent spring by getting a terrible wedge haircut. [People]
