Sure, British actors Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Hiddleston might already be taking over Hollywood, but their female compatriots aren’t about to be undone. The British (women) are coming, and they’re bringing us oodles of class, beauty, talent and gossip. Here are the 10 British women who absolutely need to be on your radar.
It’s hard to catch a big break, and some stars get theirs performing for little ones. Everyone knows now that Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera all got their start on The Mickey Mouse Club, but did you know there are more children’s shows that spawned Disney stars than just ye olde MMC? Long before they were Disney starlets, Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato were adorable tykes on Barney & Friends? Or that Ben Affleck‘s first claim to fame wasn’t being an actor or a director; he was a passenger on The Voyage of the Mimi.
Nothing says fall quite like fall boots, and the statement boots that these celebrities are wearing are saying quite a lot. Katie Holmes is showing off her independence by mixing red boots with a blue outfit, while Miley Cyrus is showing us how deep she is into her sexy new image by channelling the streetwalker “chic” of Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. Miranda Kerr‘s fashion forward booties scream that she’s the hottest model in the world right now and Christina Milian‘s tortured lace up boots prove that corseting isn’t just for one’s waistline.
What were they thinking? We probably say that at least once a day around here, and it’s often in reference to the famous people nearest and dearest to our hearts. Maybe it’s because folks like Olivia Munn, K.Michelle and Rick Ross can have such enormous lapses in fashion judgment that we love them so much.
Ashton Kutcher and Scarlett Johansson are two excellent examples of why procreation is beneficial to society. I mean just look at that symmetry, that bone structure, that, that … hotness. It might be hard to believe, but their genetic awesomeness is shared with a partner in crime — that’s right, a twinsy. They aren’t all identical twins of course, but they are all twins — and that’s a start. Gisele Bundchen (hubba hubba, right?) and the Olsen twins (obvs) grace the list, along with many other celebrities you’ll be doubly surprised to discover. So check out our gallery of 20 Celebrities You Didn’t Know Were Twins and prepare to be amazed. Twice.
“HEADING HOME NOW,” Kanye tweeted in response to the above Instagram Kim Kardashian posted last night. For all their bluster and fame-hungry ways, we do love it when they get all romantic with each other. And also, WOW, Kim.
Back when she was pregnant, Kim Kardashian earned perhaps more than her fair share of scrutiny for the ways in which she attempted to stick to her old way of dressing, despite her ever-changing figure. I pretty much expected that trend to continue after she gave birth to North West in June. Why would Kimmycakes give up her skintight outfits and uncomfortable shoes now? Well, imagine my surprise when I actually analyzed the fashions she’s been sporting since her return to the spotlight last month.
Nepotism is alive and well in Hollywood, folks. There are so many second-generation celebs running around Tinseltown, you’d think it was a family reunion. Actors with a movie star parent are a dime a dozen (hi, Kate Hudson and Michael Douglas) — but some of our biggest stars have parents who were more lowkey showbiz players, in an under-the-radar kind of way. From Lenny Kravtiz’s producer dad to Kristen Stewart’s script supervisor mom, these celebs aren’t the only bold face names in their families.
When a non-famous person hates someone, we gossip behind their backs and and unfollow them on Facebook. But when celebs hate each other? There are press releases involved, highly publicized Twitter wars, and bitchy headlines. Some, like Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow, started off as friends; others, like Nikki Minaj and Mariah Carey, were co-workers. And then there are those, like Katie Couric and Kim Kardashian, who just seem to enjoy taking jabs at each other in public. Here are the feuding stars that do it the best:
It’s the harvest season, guys! This beautiful autumn weather brings vibrant veggies and glowing complexions to those who eat them. Lea Michele, Olivia Wilde, Carrie Underwood and Pamela Anderson are all self-proclaimed green goddesses who don’t sully their diets with turkey or steak. They’re vegetarians, and they’re proud of it. Whether motivated by sympathy for animals, health consciousness, or a need to fit into a catsuit, these ladies make us want to dig into a giant quinoa salad right now!
