At 24 years of age, Avril Lavigne still dresses like a 14-year old emo punk. Despite her attempts of acting and dressing her age, she is still boxed into that angry white female style that seems to be all the rage right now. So it’s only right that she cashes in on the look that she almost single-handedly made popular. Although is she continues to dress like this by the time she’s 50, well, that’s a completely unacceptable thing to do.
Still rockin’ the dark ‘do, Scarlett Johansson is on the cover of an upcoming Elle France issue looking sexy as heck. Filming for Iron Man 2 is already in full swing, and although reports of an on-set cold war between her and Gwyneth Paltrow have sorta died down, it’s interesting that neither party took steps to release a statement on the validity of the rumor. Which leads me to believe one thing – it must be true. Or maybe they were just trying to create buzz on the project. As if they need to do that. This movie is sure to be the biggets movie of 2010 – on-set catfights or not.
Having the number one album in the US must feel really great. But that doesn’t let country music superstar Taylot Swift get a big head. Nope, apparently she’s still the sweetest, most down to earth young lady there is. Then again, that’s exactly what they said about LeAnn Rimes. And Shania Twain. And where are they now? Taylor is still doing her best to cross over into mainstream pop, releasing pop or rock vesrions of her country songs. It seems to be working since she’s got a bunch of songs in the Billboard Hot 100 so I guess she must be doing something right.
Celeb photographer Jason Bell has managed to make The Wrestler star Marisa Tomei look better than she has in years. Whether it’s good photoshopping or good face-lifting, Marisa looks very very beautiful in these Rita Hayworth-inspired pics. She’s enjoying a career resurgence after her Oscar nomination for The Wrestler and is set to star in four very eclectic films. There’s the ensemble comedy Amsterdam, a new comedy from the Duplass Brothers, the thriller The Night Job, and the Koren remake 10a/10b with Liv Tyler.
Undoubtedly the hottest young actress these days, Megan Fox continues her frenzied media blitz by doing a shoot for an upcoming Entertainment Weekly issue which will definitely feature her and her amazing body… of work. It’s hard to believe that the youngster who played second fiddle to Lindsay Lohan in the box-office flop Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen would turn out to be the sex-symbol phenomenon she is now. Well, to be honest, I did. Because I actually paid to see that movie in the theater and discovered this stunning beauty. I had hoped then for her to have a great career. I guess my wish came true. You guys can thank me later.
Hawking their upcoming film Inglorious Basterds, German actress Diane Kruger gets cozy with director Quentin Tarantino for a photoshoot for the New York Times. The film itself has been getting a lot of positive buzz for Tarantino and it’s stars. Aside from the fact that this is QT’s first movie since the Kill Bill films, it also marks a thematic departure for the director best known for modern, violent, and darkly comic movies. But what I am more concerned about is if Quentin and Diane have anything going on. Judging from these pics, it may seem that way huh? After all, Diane looks exactly like Tarantino’s type: blonde, tall, lithe… Uma Thurman anyone?
Vanessa Hudgens channels her inner sexy in this spread for the May issue of InStyle Magazine UK. She’s doing her best to step out of her tween image and going for a more mature one (like what boyfriend Zac Efron is doing by frequently dropping the F-bomb in every recent interview) by taking on more grown-up roles and attempting to be edgy. She wants to follow the career path of Oscar winner Angelina Jolie, whom she’s obsessed with. Somehow I don’t see Vanessa with 7 rugrats. I can just imagine all of them playing with their make-up table and messing everything up. Zac would be furious!
Looks like the accident that made folk singer turned country artist Jewel Kilcher pull out of Dancing With The Stars won’t be going away anytime soon. She’s been seen sporting a cast and walking around on crutches since the accident over a month ago and it looks like it’ll stay put for a while. But that won’t stop Jewel from doing her best to start planning for a family. She wants a boy for her and rodeo star Ty Murray’s first child. She’s already began recording an album of lullabies that she plans on releasing this year. Good luck to the couple on that!
Taken during her “What happened to…?” phase around 2000 (she’s now a regular on the TV series The Secret Life of the American Teenager - she’s the mom), Molly Ringwald tried to gain some visibility by doing a shoot with acclaimed photog Ellen Von Unwerth who’s known for taking pics of really hot Hollywood women. And I must say even with the extra poundage, Molly looks amazing in these. So even though her career has basically just two phases (80’s teen queen and now, Mom) these serve as a good in-between for those two sides of Molly. Frankly, I prefer her like this – sexy with a hint of awkwardness.
If you’re wondering whatever happened to Coyote Ugly star Piper Perabo, well join the club. After a splashy high-profile debut in the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced chick-flick where she beat out like a million other girls for the lead role, she sort of faded into obscurity, landing low-profile roles in big studio films like The Prestige and the Cheaper By The Dozen films. She was last seen in Beverly Hills Chihuahua playing second fiddle to a rat-faced dog. Oh, how the mighty have fallen. She should be in a movie playing Julia Roberts’ sister, stat! But considering the state of Julia’s film career now, that doesn’t seem like a good move either.
