Noooooo. Birds, especially large human-sized birds are my biggest fear. I’m suddenly very, very scared of Jennifer Lawrence. WTF, W magazine?!

Eww, Tom Cruise, no. No no no no. I realize that Tom is in character as Stacee Jaxx from his upcoming film “Rock of Ages,” but this photo makes me feel really dirty. Are those temporary Ed Hardy tattoos? Why is that model reaching down his pants? Doesn’t she know his manhood belongs to Xenu? And is it just me or did an overeager Photoshopper break Tom’s neck a little? I give this cover an overall grade of “No Fucking Thank You.” [Hollywood Life]
“[The first movie I remember seeing was] ‘The Goonies.’ I never identified with girls, and the cast was all boys. Girls were nervous about going into caves; they were scaredy-cats—and I wasn’t into that at all. I loved the idea of being with a crew and having an adventure. I was really interested in pits full of snakes … I [played with Barbies], but it was always, ‘Let’s play sex with Barbies!’ My Barbies were usually naked. Once, I took their heads off, cut their hair, drew on their short, spiky hair with some markers, then stuck the heads on Christmas lights. Every year, we’d string our tree with those Barbie heads. It looked demonic. My parents were so cool—they saw it as a form of self-expression.”
– Jessica Biel in W magazine. I mean, we all simulated sex acts with our Barbie dolls and gave them weird haircuts, right? The part where she made their heads into Christmas ornaments was a little dark. But she’s got nothing on our screwed up childhood games. We don’t judge at all. [What is going on in the photo? Is she touching herself by a pool? -- Editor] [Celebitchy]
Carey Mulligan is a great actress and has brought a maturity to all of her roles — from “An Education” to “Never Let Me Go” to “Drive” — despite her youthful age. In her latest movie “Shame,” she tackles seriously sexy territory and even has a nude scene. Still, I was sort of surprised to see her on the cover of W in basically just a white bra. I’m used to seeing starlets like Megan Fox and Lindsay Lohan in just their skivvies, but there’s something regal and elegant about Carey’s — and the magazine’s — approach. What do you think of this cover?
Big news for Nicki Minaj fans (aren’t we all?): the hip-hop starlet has scored the cover of her first “serious” fashion magazine, appearing in the November issue of W. Artist Francesco Vezzoli transformed the photos, as has become his style, so that Minaj embodied that of “a powdered 18th-century courtesan.” The photos are striking, a little strange, and certainly memorable. What do you think? [Celebuzz]
Models are typically considered ready to be shipped off to the model glue factory before they even hit 25, but in an editorial for the September issue of W magazine, 37-year-old model Amber Valetta was aged a remarkable 120 years. Shot by photographer Steven Klein, Valetta channeled the timelessness of an age-defying Madonna (it can’t be merely coincidence that the copy refers to our heroine as a “material girl”), and stays sultry and supple–even with more than a century’s worth of wear and tear on her.

“I was never raised to think that I was pretty. It’s not that I was raised to think I was unattractive, but it was just never something that was pointed out to me by my family. They would point out personality traits—’Our daughter is really quirky’—versus what I look like, because inevitably, looks go, so it makes no difference.”
– Mila Kunis reflects on her outer/inner beauty in W. Oh how easily these words roll off the tongue of a young, gorgeous woman. I completely respect that she was raised to be rewarded for inner beauty. I think it’s amazing. And I admire how humble and down to earth she is. BUT … she’s just so damn gorgeous that it’s easy for looks to be a non-issue. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »
“Oh my God, I’m more naked that I was in Playboy. I’m so mad right now. [The magazine] promised I would be covered with artwork — you can see the nipples! The whole concept was sold to me that nothing would be seen. I feel so taken advantage of … I’ve definitely learned my lesson. I’m never taking my clothes off again, even if it’s for Vogue.”
– Kim Kardashian claims she was utterly bamboozled by the evil editors at W who pinky swore when she took a nudie photo for the magazine’s cover that she wouldn’t appear so nude. Now, I used to work in the magazine biz and I know that celebs can and do ask for the right to approve images if they’re really concerned about being seen in a certain light. If you’re gonna let a magazine photograph you butt naked and then take them at their word that they’re going to make you look less naked, you’re an idiot. [Us Weekly] Keep reading »
