Oh, celebrities. They’re so predictable. If they’re not saying “My job really isn’t as glamorous as it seems” or “We’re not dating, we’re just really good friends,” they’re trying to convince us that running around after your children gives you the body of a Victoria’s Secret model. More
Topic: Penelope Cruz
Even though it’s only June, the first scents of Oscar season are already drifting in on the summer air. It’s still many months off, so stop putting on your mink coat and your popcorn gloves, and set down your theatre glasses too, won’t you?! Goodness, sit back down. This is only the teaser, not even the full trailer, because this movie doesn’t come out until October 25th. But if you know your ups from your downs and your whos from your wherefores, you’ll be on the edge of your seat until then cause it stars Michael Fassbender. More
Also I’m sorry, did I forget to mention — Penelope Cruz is pregnant right now, and due to give birth any day. Let me just ask you — when was the last time you were approached to be a Bond girl at your peak physical condition, let alone nine months pregnant? Yeah, that’s what I thought. More
Lancôme perfume has added another wide-eyed beauty to their cabinet, and another reason why we “normos” and “uggos” won’t be getting swept off our feet on a Paris street anytime soon. Aspirational? Try EXASPIRATIONAL, amirightladies?
Don’t get me wrong. My idea of true romance obviously includes lilting piano melodies, soft-focused lenses, diamonds, idling around old European cities and running over bridges for no apparent reason—but I don’t need a company like Lancôme rubbing the fantasy in my face. More
Actress and my-future-husband stealer Rachel Weisz is the new face of Bulgari’s Jasmin Noir perfume. In the ad, she poses nude, next to a lion, while holding a giant bottle of perfume. But this is not the first time a celebrity has combined the two great art forms of photography and animal husbandry. More
Hollywood typecasting makes it easier to audiences to figure out what a movie’s about without knowing anything about its plot — thanks to actors who play the same roles over and over again, trying to recapture lightning in a bottle. With each role, they run these characters into the ground until they’re the most bare-bones stereotypes.
It becomes shorthand: Sarah Jessica Parker is a highstrung, Type A businesswoman. Sandra Bullock is tough-as-nails and uses a breezy attitude to hide her secret insecurities. Penelope Cruz played the same role in both the Spanish and American Vanilla Sky movies, with the second an awful remake of what had been a fantastic performance the first time around.
Emma Roberts‘ good-girl muse Sally in The Art of Getting By could have been just a worse rehashing of her radiant character in Twelve, but the combination of director Gavin Wiesen‘s script and Roberts’ own know-how elevates Sally to a better version of what we’ve seen before. More
What’s Captain Jack Sparrow chic? It’s headscarves and vests and flowly tops. It’s lots of browns and big chains. It’s wanting to look just like Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean. And we’re calling it a trend. More
As one of the new faces in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Astrid Berges-Frisbey (who plays sexy mermaid Syrena) is about to hit the big time. So who is she, and what do you need to know about her?
1. She’s quadrilingual.
Barcelona-born Astrid speaks four languages: French, Spanish, Catalan, and English. More
Actors are known for going to extremes for movie roles – Christian Bale lost a scary amount of weight for his role in The Machinist, and Renee Zellweger famously packed on pounds for Bridget Jones’ Diary. Depending on the star, learning a new language is better than having to gain or lose a bunch of weight. More
There’s something, dare I say, magical about the Disney Dream Portrait series, where photographer Annie Leibovitz reimagines well-known celebrities as memorable characters from our favorite animated movies. Disney has just released three new images, featuring Olivia Wilde, Penélope Cruz, and others. I’ve also included as many as I could find from the original series (released in 2008), in case you didn’t get to see them the first time around. More
MTV’s “Macaroni Rascals” are heading to Italy.(TMZ)
And Italian groups are pissed. They think The Jersey Shore makes Italians look bad. (HollywoodGossip)
Meanwhile, Snooki from The Jersey Shore is getting her own show. And apparently there are toilet paper problems. (TMZ)
Check out Jodi Sweetin‘s engagement ring. PS: She’s not getting married. (People)
Also, Natalie Portman‘s is huger and more environmentally correct, whatever that means. (People)
While we were lounging around the house in pajamas, sipping egg nog and playing board games, Los Angeles celebs were fully-clothed and and out watching the ultra-hyped match between the L.A. Lakers and the Miami Heat. That’s right, folks like Kanye West and Garrett Hedlund got to watch LeBron James demolish Kobe Bryant firsthand (booo!). Merry Christmas, sports fan style. More
Mermaids? Zombies? Penelope Cruz? Oh my! The new Pirates of the Caribbean trailer looks insane! After three installments, we thought we were done with this franchise, but this looks so delightfully weird that we may have to go see it. Also, it’s crazy how much Penelope’s character looks like the female Jack Sparrow. More
