Valentine’s Day … Celebrity-Style

On Sunday night, as I sat at a crappy vegetarian restaurant with a bunch of my single girlfriends, I found myself wondering, “What are the rich and famous up to tonight? Could they, too, be having a conversation about how guacamole is the nectar of the gods?” I was betting that celebrity couples were wining and dining it up at the most exclusive spots in the world. But perhaps not. Britney Spears and her agent-boyfriend, Jason Trawick, were spotted having their idea of a romantic meal: McDonald’s drive-thru for French fries. I wonder if they super sized it for the occasion? [People]

OK, I guess my V-Day wasn’t so lame after all. After the jump, what some other celeb couples were doing this February 14th. Keep reading »

How Was Your Valentine’s Day?

Yesterday was my first Valentine’s Day as a married woman, but I didn’t spend it with my husband. Drew’s actually been in Vancouver for the last three weeks preparing to cover the Olympics with his job for NBC (I’ll be joining him for the last week of the Games, so don’t feel too bad for me). Anyway, I knew I have a tendency to get a little blue at this point in the winter anyway and I wanted to avoid getting too lonely, so I put the invitation out for any of my long-distance friends to come visit while I’ve got the apartment all to myself. I had one friend in town last weekend and then this weekend, two of my oldest, dearest friends came to town to keep me company. As someone who sees Valentine’s Day more as a reminder to show love to everyone you care about and not just your significant other, it was one of the best V-Days I’ve had in a long time.

Quotable: Jennifer Garner Is Happy To Get A Fistful Of Grass On Valentine’s Day

“Guys, it’s just not so bad. All you have to do is acknowledge … in some sweet way, just write a quick note or pick flowers or pick the grass out of your backyard and show up with it with a sweet smile, ‘I love you. I’m lucky to have you.’ Just make us feel wooed … You don’t have to spend a lot of money, just be sweet. That’s all. The money doesn’t hurt either but…be sweet.”

A Movie Montage Of Classic “I Love You” Moments

There is a little bit of a love cynic in all of us, especially around Valentine’s Day. But this montage proves that we all have a little bit of a hopeless romantic in us, too. Everyone has at least one movie moment that made them feel all warm and fuzzy, and this video tried to cram in as many of them as possible. So look for your favorite “I love you” or bawk at the ones that are missing (Hello, “Titanic”!), and then let us know what film scenes make you swoon. [Moviefone] Keep reading »

The Best (Non-Traditional) Valentine’s Day Ever

I used to view Valentine’s Day as annual torture from pink fluffy teddy bears, questionable lingerie advertisements, and the Hallmark overlords. So much worse than the iron maiden. Every year, V-Day signaled the boys I dated to forget everything they knew about me and my otherwise sane girlfriends to either retreat into nauseous couple cute-love or singleton-induced hatred for the world.
