Gallery: Zooey Deschanel's Off-Camera Outfits Match Her On-Camera Costumes

The following is a guest post from our friends at Luckymag.com.

Doesn’t it seem like the best—or at least most loved—actors always bring some bit of their own personality to their roles? Audrey Hepburn was just so Audrey Hepburn. Marilyn Monroe was just so Marilyn. And many of today’s biggest stars, from Tom Hanks (always comes off as so damn nice) to Jennifer Aniston (ever so girl-next-door relatable) just have that thing where you feel like you’re watching them, even as they transform into other characters.

The same can certainly be said of Lucky fave, Zooey Deschanel. More »

Read A Letter Mary-Louise Parker Wrote To Her Weeds Character

Read A Letter Mary-Louise Parker Wrote To Her Weeds Character

Mary-Louise Parker‘s Weeds character Nancy Botwin is one of my all-time favorites from all of TV. She’s cool and whip-smart and she doesn’t give a damn about anything. Nancy’s lack of morality makes her super compelling, and it seems to be something Mary-Louise likes about her character as well. She wrote a letter directed at Nancy in Bullett.
Here’s an excerpt: More »

Weeds Season Finale Recap: ‘Ain’t A Boy On This Planet Don’t Need Something Green’

Weeds Season Finale Recap: 'Ain't A Boy On This Planet Don't Need Something Green'

After an uneven but mostly entertaining seventh season, the finale to the latest Weeds cycle left something to be desired. Band Aid solutions, a lack of real tension, and a cliffhanger out of fucking nowhere all made for a finale that was somewhat less thrilling than the airport stand-off of season six. Then again, once you’ve had Nancy turn herself into the FBI to save herself and her family from being murdered by a Mexican drug boss/mayor, it’s hard to figure out where to go from there. More »

Weeds S7E9 Recap: "Thanks For Last Night"

This episode finally saw Nancy get out from under the fascist boots of both the law and Zoya, only to land back in the kind of hot water with which she’s familiar: hot water that is full of rival drug dealers. This episode was all about subverting our expectations. Smart Shane did something stupid, competent Silas did something incompetent, and Doug Wilson actually did something helpful! More »

Weeds S7E8 Recap: Worlds Collide

This week’s episode of Weeds brought a lot of plot lines together into one huge, incredibly dangerous tangle. As far as Nancy’s situations go, it’s not “Mexican drug boss wants to kill me” bad, but it is, nonetheless, quite bad. How did she get back into trouble so quickly? Let’s take a look. More »

Am I Right Ladies? The No-Nonsense Womyn of Cable

Am I Right Ladies? The No-Nonsense Womyn of Cable

Who says we don’t have good female role models on cable television? Sure, there’s plenty of ladies slumming it on trashy reality shows, but there are also plenty of sexy, type-A ladies who know their way around a fierce button-up blouse. These womyn can shoot guns, catch bad guys, win court cases and save lives as good as any man – and they do it in pumps! If that isn’t female empowerment, I don’t know what is. Seriously, I don’t know anymore. It may be a man’s world, but the boys be droolin’ while the girls be rulin,’ amirightladies? More »

Crush This is your weekly guide to what’s new in music, movies and TV. As Thanksgiving and the holidays creep closer and closer, we see a lot of season finales.
