On Anne Hathaway, how much do we love thee? Let us count the awesome quotes about weight you shared with Glamour. “I still feel the stress over ‘Am I thin enough? Am I too thin? Is my body the right shape?’” the Les Miserables actress admitted. “There’s an obsessive quality to it that I thought I would’ve grown out of by now. It’s an ongoing source of shame for me.” On an unrelated note, we love how Glamour didn’t sandblast Hathaway’s face into an unrecognizable doll mask like some Photoshop-happy magazines do. Well-played, you guys!

We’ve said before how much we’ve been enjoying the celebrity-lead discussion about weight recently, and our interest is even more piqued by Hathaway’s inclusion in our 20 Stars Who Took Their Bodies To Extremes For The Screen list. Basically what we’re saying is, Anne’s words lead us to collect our favorite brutally honest celeb quotes about weight. Some of them are uplifting, some of them are depressing, but all of them are a good reminder than famous people are just meat puppets like us. Meat puppets with great hair and nicer cars, but meat puppets none the less.
Yesterday, after seeing all those photos of Harry Styles and Taylor Swift at the Central Park Zoo, we were pretty convinced that this relationship, will probably staged, has potential to be something more. Today, it looks like the singers are intent on convincing us that things have evolved quite quickly. After being spotted singing karaoke together at the afterparty for One Direction’s Madison Square Garden concert, they were snapped arriving at Taylor’s hotel at 4 a.m. And then (cue the dramatic music) they were photographed today, leaving that same hotel “moments apart” according to photographers. Walk of shame! Which, they’re young and beautiful, so why the hell not?

We just want to insert one more tiny bit of cynicism here: Don’t they still seem like they’re being photographed on these outings on purpose? Also, poor Conor Kennedy!
Oh Adam Levine. Poor, sweet, naive Adam Levine. Clearly we do not agree with his sentiments that Honey Boo Boo a.k.a. Alana Thompson is “the decay of Western Civilization,” but more importantly, we wonder where he’s been lately? “Seriously, Honey Boo Boo is the decay of Western civilization. Just because so many people watch the show doesn’t mean it’s good,” the Maroon 5 singer told GQ. “So many people witness atrocities and can’t take their eyes away from them, but that doesn’t mean they’re good. That show is literally The. Worst. Thing. That’s. Ever. Happened.” Oh sweet boy. Are he kidding? Here Comes Honey Boo Boo isn’t even the worst thing we watched on TV today! If Adam genuinely thinks Honey Boo Boo is a harbinger of our society’s demise, then where were his sharp observational skills when we first heard about….*
Oh, Rob Kardashian, we feel your pain…or rather, we felt your pain until you went ahead and put it on Twitter. After recently breaking up with lady friend Rita Ora, Rob allegedly took to Twitter to let the world know how badly the “Hot Right Now” singer done him dirt. “She cheated on me with nearly 20 dudes while we were together, I wonder how many she will sleep with now that we apart? But I mean 20?!!,” Kardashian ranted in the now deleted posts. “I’m actually disgusted a woman could give up her body to more than 20 dudes in less than a year’s time whle trying to start a career.” The semi-imaginative insult “Rita Whora” is now trending across the Twitterscape, and yet somehow, defying all logic, Rob Kardashian manages to come across like the bigger jerk. Proving once again that nothing is impossible with the power of the Internet!
Now, we’re not saying we would want to get cheated on with 20 guys either; our boyfriend would have so much explaining to do. Clearly Rob has every right to hate her beautiful guts, but there is literally no reason to tweet about your famous ex’s infidelities other than inciting total strangers to hate her on the Internet. And just on the Internet if she’s lucky! Remember those whack jobs who sent death threats after the recent Chris Brown Twitter debacle? Everyone knows that people on the Internet be cray!
People really seem to like when Mike Tyson gets humble — and we think that’s why he’s trotted out this amazing story about a love triangle involving him, ex-wife Robin Givens and Brad Pitt on more than one occasion this year. He told the tale as part of his Spike Lee-directed one man show on Broadway over the summer, and while promoting it in April, he told it on Conan. Back then, the story went like this: Mike and Robin were in the midst of their divorce in 1989, but the boxer was still making frequent house calls to the actress’ house, “hitting it” just before they’d go to their lawyers’ offices to call each other every name in the book. Except one day, when Tyson rang the buzzer and no one was home. He was about to leave when Givens drove up to the house, with Brad Pitt. He told Conan that his first thought was, “Oh, man, I ain’t gonna get no p—y,” and instead of getting mad, “I went from a hard stallion to a wet noodle.”
Congrats, William and Kate! We all knew that if we speculated about this enough times, eventually it would be true: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting their first child, their spokespeople at Clarence House announced today (which we learned via Today, since everyone has crashed all the official royal sites with their excitement over the news). Unfortunately, it seems that they were forced to announce this news because Kate was admitted to the hospital Monday morning with severe morning sickness and is expected to stay hospitalized for days, as the pregnancy is in its very early stages. Ooooh, we feel your pain, Mama! But congrats anyway!
The couple have only been married for a year and a half, but bump watch has been in full effect since their wedding in April 2011. When Kate drank water instead of wine at an event in September, the media went crazy (and yeah, we can totally relate to that one too — which, what does that say about our normal drinking habits?). Lately, some sites were even pointing to the fuller shape of the Duchess’ face as proof that she was with child.
The newest addition to the royal family will be third in line for the throne, after his/her grandpa Prince Charles and dad William. (Harry, you are free to resume your naked billiards, as you are now fourth in line.)
Aww, we all said. How perfect would it be if America’s Sweetheart Taylor Swift dated British One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles? They are of equal levels of attractiveness and fame; they combine into a great couple name, “Haylor”; and their age difference (he’s 18, she’s 22) perfectly coincides with her new preference for younger guys and his stated one for older women. They’ve already been spotted being cute together backstage at the X Factor weeks ago. But then let’s zoom out of this adorable photo of their Sunday date at the Central Park Zoo for a minute …
Huh, looks like those are security guys chaperoning this date. Can’t blame ‘em, of course. You can see from this video how the fans were ready to swarm at all times. So that’s bound to put a bit of a damper on things. But look, they were still able to enjoy the animals like a normal couple on an early date (complete with Taylor Surprised Face (TM) and twee fox sweater): Read more…
Olivier, Halle, Nahla, Gabriel … and their lawyers, Shawn Holley and Blair Berk
Maybe someone should send Shawn Holley and Blair Berk over to the Middle East next. The two celebrity lawyers did what we weren’t sure was possible yesterday: They reached a settlement in the battle between Halle Berry, Olivier Martinez and Gabriel Aubry following their Thanksgiving Day brawl. “The parties have reached an amicable agreement. There will be no further statements regarding this matter,” Berk revealed to TMZ and other outlets, via a handwritten note.
So, we have no idea whether this amicable agreement extends to the underlying dispute over whether Halle and Olivier can take Halle and Gabriel’s daughter, Nahla, to Paris with them (a judge had ruled no earlier this month). It could just be about the order prohibiting Gabriel from seeing Nahla after last week’s fight, which left the Canadian model with a black eye and broken nose and Olivier with some messed up fists.
We’re happy for Aubry’s lawyer Holley, at least, ’cause now she’s going to have to turn her attention back to keeping Lindsay Lohan out of jail. If she can solve that one, we’re pretty sure she can fix global warming too.
We know there aren’t any faces in this pic, but that is the unmistakable bum of Rihanna plus the bald head and tattooed arm of Chris Brown. We’re gonna go out on a limb and say that by sharing this photo with her followers, the “Unapologetic” singer is making her relationship with Breezy “Twitter Official.” Is there such a thing as Twitter Official? Probably not, but we’re coining it now for couples who are unsure about making the deep commitment of becoming Facebook Official. “i don’t wanna leave!!! killed it tonight baby!!!” she captioned the intimate snap, the latest in a long line of hints that point to Riri and Brown leaving their troubled past behind and rekindling their old romantic flame.
Just yesterday the pair showed off his ‘n’ hers Rolex watches on Instagram, but in a brand new interview withXXL Magazine, Chris denies a current relationship with his former lover. “One thing people often want me to talk about is my public love life,” he said. ”When it comes to my love life, the perception seems as though I am a player. But that’s not true … Love is something I am still learning. It’s just an obstacle that I haven’t yet mastered. I think that’s my biggest hurdle in life.”
He admits that another hurdle is definitely impulse control, as evidenced by…well, lots of public skirmishes that he’s been involved with over the years, most recently with comedian Jenny Johnson over Twitter. “I haven’t been as mature and thought out in the past, so, me growing now, it’s showing my progression,” he says in the interview, which took place before his outburst at Johnson and consequent Twitter exile. “I used to use my Twitter account to vent, but now I mostly use it for marketing and promotions. Even if the media asks me something, if it’s cool then it’s, ‘What’s up?’ But if it’s anything that’s too negative, I don’t care to respond.”
Say what you will about Lindsay Lohan, she doesn’t do anything halfway. Even where arrests are concerned. The girl somehow managed to be charged with two different crimes on the same day an entire country apart! OK fine, her L.A. charges stemmed from a car accident that took place over five months ago. But still, it’s pretty impressive.
The troubled Liz & Dick actress was charged yesterday by a Santa Monica prosecutor for three misdemeanors relating to the June incident where she plowed her Porsche into the back of a dump truck. At the time she told authorities that her assistant was behind the wheel, but investigators now believe that she was driving herself to the movie set and that she lied to police. As a result, Lilo faces charges including reckless driving, lying to police and obstructing a police officer from performing duties. So essentially, Lindsay got slapped with the legal equivalent of “Liar liar, pants on fire.”
Bear in mind, this charge came mere hours after her smack-down outside of the NYC club Avenue, where she was arrested for suspicion of third-degree assault. New details about this incident are also coming to light. It’s now rumored that the brawl was sparked because she was turned down by Max George of the band The Wanted. She had apparently seen the boy band open for (who else?) Justin Bieber earlier that night and wanted to meet him in person. She got blocked from meeting him back stage (we guess the bouncer saw Liz & Dick) but they met up later that night at Avenue.
