It looks like Reese Witherspoon could find something extra special in her Christmas stocking this year: an engagement ring from boyfriend Jim Toth! A source told Radar Online that Jim is set to propose “very soon.” Hey, wait a second…why does this all sound so familiar? Oh yeah, that’s what we said last Christmas about Reese and Jake Gyllenhaal. This is awkward.
But still, maybe this is Reese’s big year! It seems likely, because Jim has apparently already shelled out for the ring. “He was looking for something pretty big, around three or four carats,” the friend told Radar. “Reese probably wouldn’t wear anything larger than that since she’s not showy.” The big date is uncertain, but he is expected to pop the question “over the holidays.” If this is true, shouldn’t we all be quiet about this? Geez, we to ruin the surprise, Internet. Let’s hope that’s not why Jake backed off.

Now this is a look. Rather than choose between a sweater and his trademark open shirt, Simon Cowell combined the two options for a photocall with X Factor finalists One Direction earlier today. Did he throw that thing on without remembering to button up first, or is this Simon’s winter steez? To be fair, he does get sort of a “sexy minister” vibe out of it. And it still seems less perverse than the changes over on on American Idol.
See photos of Simon’s bold stylistic choice in the gallery below.

We are trying to uncurl our hands out of these rage claws so we can type, but we are just so filled with fury that a medical professional would offer Carey Mulligan Botox. Revealed Carey, “I said, ‘I have some lines here under my eye and they’re annoying, what can you do?’ He looked at my face and said, ‘We’ll just drop some Botox in here and here. I said, ‘What the…? I’m only 25! Are you joking?’” Do you even see a line on that girl’s entire head? Seriously, Carey has skin like a Cabbage Patch doll.
Unfortunately, non-existent lines aren’t the only thing that has the Great Gatsby actress down about her looks; Carey Mulligan’s haircut also makes her cry. “I hate my hair. After An Education, I had a small part in Michael Mann’s film Public Enemies and he wanted me to dye it white blonde, and it wrecked my hair. Literally, ruined it. It was falling apart, fried. So I had to cut it off. I cried,” the actress explained. Well, we all know that Carey Mulligan looks consistently fierce, so be strong, girl! Just embrace any wrinkles you might get and slap a wig on that fried hair. Sure, you’ll look like our Nanna, but at least you’ll have your dignity.
While the rest of us are counting out pennies to pay for bus fare, Beyonce is celebrating her husband’s birthday by buying Jay-Z a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport, the most expensive car in the world. Hova turned 41 this past Saturday, and what better way to tell someone you love them than to buy them a car worth more than the GDP of Portugal? The amount Bee dropped on the new ride? You are going to want to start breathing into a paper bag now, because it’s $2 million dollars. We almost had to blur that number out, it’s so obscene.
According to the Bugatti webite, the Grand Sport is able to go 0-60 in 2.5 seconds and reaches a top speed of 253 miles per hour, which would come in handy when we want to get to the store to buy Ramen, because that’s all we could ever eat again if we bought this car. The Grand Sport is now just one of many in Jay-Z’s luxury car collection, which purportedly also includes a Maybach 62S, Ferrari F430 Spider and a Pagani Zonda Roadster, which we suspect based on the names are actually Transformers in disguise. Lucky for you, there are seven Great Sports still available! Sure, you’ll have to live in it, and your kids can’t go to college, but isn’t being awesome a little more important than that?

Ahoy! Pirate in a Pontiac off the port bow! David Hasselhoff blew minds in London today by posing in pirate garb with his old friend/car KITT from his Knight Rider days. The reunion took place as the Hoff made his way to rehearse a Christmas pantomime show, in which he is plays (naturally) evil Captain Hook. Is this photo-op the worst thing to happen to Peter Pan since the film Hook? We’ll let you decide.
Perhaps he’s trying to drum up interest in his A&E reality show Hasselhoffs, which debuted on Sunday to miniscule audiences and bad reviews. Will the critics ever stop hassling the Hoff? (we’re contractually obligated to make that joke) In fact, the TV legend might even jump ship and head over to Britain’s Got Talent. A year after leaving America’s Got Talent, Hasselhoff is reportedly in talks to continue his old job as talent judge on British television. Why doesn’t he just pitch a series about a crime fighting pirate and his tricked out Trans Am? It’s gotta be better than Hasselhoffs.

What does Morrissey have in common with a Chippendale dancer? James Franco looked like both sex symbols at last night’s Rob Pruitt Art Awards show in Brooklyn. The perpetual mind-blower wore a sleeveless tuxedo shirt (with tie!) on stage, joining Guggenheim fellow, drag artist and frequent collaborator Kalup Linzy on stage for a show-stopping duet.The pair, who attended the LA Gay Pride Parade together earlier this year, previously sang “Proud Mary” together at a Campari’s 150th Anniversary party.
In related Gay Or Just Remarkably Secure In His Heterosexuality For A Hollywood Star James Franco news, the actor will return for two episodes of GeneralÃ‚Â Hospital next year (no word on if he’s bringing Linzy along again). Franco has also bought the film rights to a biography of the late Sal Mineo, best known for playing Plato in Rebel Without A Cause. The star of Milk and Howl doesn’t plan to take the lead role himself, though. No, for this biopic of a gay icon, Franco plans to direct. See photos of the artistically-minded arms—woops, actor—in the gallery below.
A lot of people know Zooey Deschanel as an actress, and some know her as one half of the indie singing group She & Him. But all of you know her as the Twee-est of the Twees, the twee-est person who has ever roamed the Earth. If she were a character in Lord of the Rings, she’d be Tweebeard. Her favorite outfit is a twee-shirt and jeans. When she goes to England she drinks twee and eats crumptwees.
And now, she has a talk show!! An internet talk show. (Read: Better talk show.) It’s “Hey! The Zooey Deschanel Show,” and if the theme song doesn’t have you hooked, well then nothing will. (OK, maybe heroin…) Enjoyyyah.
Gisele Bundchen is a supermodel who occasionally acts like an annoying super-mommy. Now she’s becoming a superhero. Bundchen is going to be animated for a new Internet series called Gisele And The Green Team, teaching kids how to protect the environment using superpowers like “Foresight” and “Remote Viewing.” For real. We think it’s a noble cause, but it’s just one step closer to Gisele slowly morphing into an even more irritating Gwyneth Paltrow—this is her GOOP.
Gisele explained, “There is a vital connection between empowering our youth and protecting our planet. With Gisele & the Green Team, we hope to not only teach young girls about important environmental issues, but support them in building self-confidence and discovering their inner potential.” It’s hard to argue with that, but it’s ironic and funny once you realize Gisele is by far the most beautiful member of the Green Team. With her va-va-voom animated body,Ã‚Â even these cartoon girls probably have an inferiority complex. Also, when they aren’t saving the planet, the characters run a fashion boutique. Girl power! You can view the episodes of Gisele And The Green Team on AOL, and check out the animated version of Gisele below.

If anyone’s going to release dirrty NSFW phots of Christina Aguilera in her video get-ups, it’s going to be Christina! Representatives for the singer are predictably blaming a “hacker” for the titillating backstage shots. “The photos of Christina Aguilera being leaked to the press were illegally obtained by a hacker who tapped into Christina’s personal stylist’s account,” says their statement. “The photos were taken in the privacy of Ms. Aguilera’s home and were used only in a personal exchange between the star and her stylist.” Well, we guessed she wasn’t sexting Jordan Bratman.
“We are attempting to determine the identity of the hackers and will pursue them aggressively,” promises Team Xtina. “Their conduct is reprehensible.” Aguilera didn’t let the internet skeevery get her down, though, joining Cher and the cast of Burlesque at a photocall in Spain. See photos of the stars in the gallery below.
