Actresses and Their Big, Full-Mouthed Lies

Actresses and Their Big, Full-Mouthed Lies

I think it’s safe to say that most of us, by this point, find the requisite “I love to eat all the bacon and all the cheese and are you going to finish those fries?” comments from actresses in magazine interviews more than a little irritating. We know that they’re not indicative of anything near the truth: every woman in Hollywood cannot be blessed with the ability to consume thousands of calories a day and remain rail thin. It’s just not statistically possible. More »

Do You Just Assume Celebrities Are Always Dieting?

Do You Just Assume Celebrities Are Always Dieting?

I do. Especially because whenever they talk about how “normally” they eat it’s always something like “yes, I ate a bagel, it was entirely vegan and no larger than a golf ball.” So I’m not entirely surprised to hear Kim Cattrall admit that she’s been on a diet for most of her life. Because, well, yes. However, she still sounds as though she has a healthy attitude about food, remarking: More »

Natalie Portman Is Not Defending Her Eating Habits Well Enough

Natalie Portman Is Not Defending Her Eating Habits Well Enough

Amid accusations that she look terrifyingly thin in The Black Swan, Natalie Portman told Vogue:

A vegetarian at home and a vegan when out, she orders a thoroughly eccentric meal: field greens followed by a soft pretzel with mustard, and an elderflower spritzer.

“Is that it?” I ask.

“I swear, I eat. I ate a bagel an hour ago. I consume my own weight in hummus every day. I cook a lot, and I even do vegan baking.

“I like pleasure, I like joy. I’d never get to the point where I would starve or injure myself like Nina does. I’m the opposite—when I’m hungry, I eat, and I always make sure I’m eating something delicious. I’m tough on myself in terms of the standards I want to live up to, but that’s also part of my pleasure: knowing you are being your fullest self. Being your fullest self is a lot of work.”

Okay, that’s probably true. Natalie Portman seems like a pretty levelheaded young lady. My problem is that when starlets exclaim “I eat!” they always follow it up with something like… a bagel.

Or, “I eat! I had some cauliflower!” These things are not impressive. These are things that normal human beings eat all the time. You want to correct your image? You have to make it clear that you are a monstrous, terrifying glutton. Here are some things that I think would make that point more effectively than “a bagel”:

5 Tips For Crashing a Hollywood Soiree

5 Tips For Crashing a Hollywood Soiree

Sometimes, you want to go to an event that you weren’t invited to. Maybe you’ve heard about a party that promises to be a rager, or maybe you know that the object of your affection will be there, or maybe you have it on good authority that there will be some dank catering. Well, here are a few tips for getting in to such an event when you’re not on the guest list, and I’m sorry to say that these are tried and true, mostly by accident: More »

FINALLY: Molly Shannon Gets a Show on HBO

FINALLY: Molly Shannon Gets a Show on HBO

Deadline Hollywood reports that the moment we’ve all been waiting for since Molly Shannon first stuck her hilarious hands into her equally uproarious armpits has finally come:

“HBO just picked up a comedy from veteran Simpsons writer-producer Tim Long with Molly Shannon attached to star. The untitled comedy would star the Saturday Night Live alumna as a nun who makes the difficult decision to leave the convent and confront life in the outside world.”

The site likens Shannon’s pilot to a Judd Apatow movie with a female lead — a woman who, at 40, has never had sex and has no experience with relationships other than what she leared at the convent. More »

Poll: Kelly Osbourne as a Hot Blond?

Poll: Kelly Osbourne as a Hot Blond?

Kelly Osbourne has been tweaking her look for a long time now, and it seems as though she’s finally burst onto the scene in full transformation mode. The girl who was once a chubby punk rocker has now become a thin, cookie-cutter blond, which I guess we’re supposed to herald as a swan-like makeover, but to me it just seems like she’s succumbed to the Hollywood pressure and become a phony shell of her former self.
