Do you see that white stuff at the bottom of the red carpet? That’s snow. So it’s safe to guess the Berlin premiere of The Tourist yesterday was a cold one. After all, why else would Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp both be wearing coats and scarves (ok, Johnny always wears a scarf)? Angelina Jolie had a coat too, but unfortunately the Oscar winner had to chuck it, lest the paparazzi fail to get a good view of the boobs jutting out of her strapless gown. Hello, double standard! When’s the last time you saw a male movie star flash his chest hair in the cold for the cameras? Brad could have at least tossed off a layer out of sympathy.

We were totally planning to write about the puffy pink party dress Leighton Meester wore to last night’s Country Strong screening in LA, until we took a closer look at what Gwyneth Paltrow was wearing. Looking at her from the left, it appears to be a bland, body-covering tarp. But catch from the back right and…WOW. Did Gwynnie really go commando to pull this look off? If anything needed to be country strong, it was the string holding this outfit together.
Get a closer look at this eye-catcher (and Leighton’s—did she make it out of used pieces of gum?) in the gallery below.
rnrnAs much as we love the Oscars and the Critics Choice Movie Awards, our favorite night of the Awards Season each and every year has got to be the Golden Globes. Why? It’s not because all of our favorite movie stars co-mingle with all of our favorite television stars (although that’s pretty great), but rather, because the Hollywood Foreign Press Association ensures that all of its attendees consume copious amounts of booze!rnrnThis morning, the nominees for the 2011 Golden Globes were announced live on NBC by the unlikely trio of Josh Duhamel, Katie Holmes and Blair Underwood. As expected, films like Black Swan, The Social Network and The King’s Speech led the way, but we’ll have more analysis for you on that in a bit. For now, follow along for the complete list of who’ll be boozing it up on live television on Sunday, January 16th, 2011!rnrn Read more…
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! No, silly, we’re not talking about the holidays; who can concentrate on those when it’s officially Awards Season? While we’re still a month or so away from learning who the nominees for the 82nd Annual Oscars will be, the awards race was jumpstarted this morning when we announced the list of actors, actresses and films that were chosen as the nominees for the 2011 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards. This program, which will air live on VH1 on Friday, January 14 at 9pm ET, has developed a reputation as being the most accurate predictor of Academy Award nominations of any award show out there. And, as you’ll see from the complete list of 2011 Critics’ Choice Awards nominees, the evening promises to be a star-studded affair with many interesting subplots that will make a huge difference once the Oscars roll around. Follow along as we highlight the Top Five Races To Watch For at this year’s ceremony!
We know that James Franco’s gay prostitute story is only going to fuel rumors that our future husband is gay, but lordy, how we don’t care right now. While on Inside the Actor’s Studio this week, Franco explained that he was hanging out with a gigolo named Sonny to prepare for a role and, well, “He took me on one of his jobs.” We didn’t even have to turn that into a double entendre to make it filthy! Our favorite part of the video is when James Lipton screams, “We certainly do!” as he encourages Franco to tell the story. In that one moment, James Lipton represented the America public: one classy, bespectacled voice screaming for all.
Said a bashful James, “So I did…and it went down. Everything went down like you see in the movies.” Not only is James Franco intensely dedicated to his craft, but we both like the same movies! So, just to recap: James Franco watched a gay prostitute have sex with a client, and then talked about it on Inside the Actor’s Studio. We don’t know which part is making our brain explode more. Okay, yeah we do: it’s the gay sex part.
“Ang, let’s go in and get some nachos already.” “I’m not done hypnotizing people with my leg, dear.” Though Angelina Jolie surprised us by bringing hubby Brad Pitt to her Tourist premiere in NYC after all (we figured they’d pose her with co-star Johnny Depp), Chelsea Handler‘s “homewrecking b—” got plenty of solo time in front of the cameras to show off her gam-baring gown. With his own common-law spouse elsewhere, Depp just lurked around like the Creepiest Hipster Alive. See photos of these stars and more in the gallery below.
Sorry, everyone. In case you were under the impression that you know how to have a good time, the cast and crew of Blue Valentine want you to know their good time is even better. Ironically, the flick is sort of a downer, but you’d never know it judging from the head-tossing laughter shared by all at the special Robert DeNiro-hosted screening of the film this weekend.
In addition to all the adults having a raucous time, Ryan Gosling palled it up with his young co-star Faith Wladyka again—you may recall that they were looking pretty adorable together at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, and this time was no different. Yep, our ovaries still love him. For more photos of the event, click through our gallery!
Ugh, would you look at those heifers?! Just kidding! These two are so gorgeous and perfect, it’s like we died and woke up in Beautiful People Heaven. Apparently while shooting their new film Blue Valentine, Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams got into some pretty fierce competition to see who could pack on the most pounds…and Michelle won! “She gained about 15, 16 pounds. He gained 14,” said Blue Valentine director, Derek Cianfrance. “Michelle was eating a pint of ice cream for breakfast and dinner and avocado sandwiches all day. She wanted to do it. She talked about her character having a certain self-hatred.” Clearly! Why else would you eat delicious ice cream morning, noon and night if it wasn’t because you hated yourself? Or because you love ice cream?
So how did someone with the bone structure of a wood nymph gain another 1/5 of her body weight? “She ate that [Purely] Decadent stuff made with coconut milk. Supposedly the coconut milk, the oil, has a lot of fat in it, and it’s hard for your body to break it down.” Oh, so maybe her character really did hate herself. We’d personally have to lose a lot of self-esteem before we switched over to eating coconut fat. [Photo: Getty Images]
Black Swan, Darren Aronofsky‘s film about rival ballet dancers Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis, premiered last night in New York. The film marks a turning point for Kunis, who up until now has generally made lighter, more comedic films. We haven’t seen the movie yet but we can say for sure that Kunis, who plays the titular Black Swan in the film, stole the show on the red carpet last night—she’s clearly making the transition to serious films flawlessly. Her co-star Portman also looked amazing, although we’re wondering why she chose to carry a copy of Lolita around with her all night—is this some hollow-book-as-purse Etsy trend we’re unaware of, or does she just love the book that much?
