Mila Kunis Was Blind In One Eye For Years

mila-kunis_getty

As if we weren’t already blown away by her Critics’ Choice Movie Award-nominated turn in Black Swan, now it’s revealed that Mila Kunis was blind in one eye the whole time. “I was blind in one eye for many years, and nobody knew,” the actress reveals. Kunis was diagnosed with chronic iritis, an inflammation of the iris that can potentially lead to permanent vision impairment. No word yet on whether Mila was still afflicted when she read the script for her new rom-com Friends With Benefits with Justin Timberlake, but based on the trailer, that’s a real possibility.

Luckily treatment was available, and Kunis has since regained her sight. “I’m not blind anymore. I had surgery a couple of months ago. They cut it open and dropped a new lens in there,” Mila explained. Guess that explains why Kunis’s break-up from Macaulay Culkin came when it did. We’re just kidding! We mean, she had her other eye the whole time. As for what she wants in a new man, Mila has got her sights (pun intentional) on a man with swagger. “Confidence, not cockiness,” Mila explains. “Looks go; they fade. I don’t think looks matter.” Wait, has she walked by a mirror since she had her eyes fixed?. Don’t sell yourself short, Mila, before you witness the true hotness you have achieved.

Critic Slams Winners On Stage At NY Film Critics’ Circle Awards

Armond White, Annette Bening & Michelle Williams

The New York PressArmond White reaffirmed his rep as the world’s angriest film critic at last night’s NY Film Critics’ Circle Awards, throwing barbs at any movie that dared to win despite him hating it. Some on-stage highlights from the circle’s chair:

  • White suggested presenter Tony Kushner, awarding Best Picture to The Social Network, could “explain why it won.”—because Armond hated it.
  • White only discussed the 2004 film Land Of Plenty when introducing Blue Valentine‘s Michelle Williams. “I can’t imagine what you’ve said about me since then if you had to go back that far to say something nice,” she responded.
  • White muttered “at least Greenberg didn’t win anything,” having previously suggested in print that director Noah Baumbach‘s mother should have had a “retroactive abortion.”

Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky got off a good one back (“Keep it up, you give us a reason to never read the New York Press“), to which White responded, “he reads me, he knows the truth.” But Best Actress winner Annette Bening was not amused, reportedly crying a variation on “can’t we all get along?” during her acceptance speech.

See the shuddering stars who braved White’s barrage in the gallery below. This Friday’s Critics’ Choice Movie Awards should be a breeze after this!

Natalie Portman Is “Our Generation’s Audrey Hepburn” Says Jake Gyllenhaal

Jake Gyllenhaal & Natalie Portman

Looks like Jake Gyllenhaal doesn’t have a bad relationship with all of his exes. The Love & Other Drugs star waxed poetic about ex-girlfriend Natalie Portman this weekend while presenting her with the Desert Palm Achievement Award at th Palm Springs International Film Festival. “[She's] the Audrey Hepburn of our generation. She’s graceful, has amazing eyebrows, and is talented, really short, funny, smart, dedicated, incredibly kind and Jewish!”

Obviously in a giggly mood (“It does get hard when you’re out to dinner with her,” he said about the vegan), Gyllenhaal cracked wise about how he met Portman. “I first met Natalie at a Star Wars convention waiting in line for her to sign my Queen Amadala doll and I’m really hoping she wins the Oscar. Because if she does, then that doll is going to be worth a s—load of money!” If she takes Best Actress at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, airing Jan. 14th on VH1, the odds will be looking pretty good.

Check out the gold-lapeled dress Natalie wore to the event in the gallery below. Do you think Audrey Hepburn would have worn it?

Marion Cotillard Has A French Bun In The Oven!

60479038

Or as they say in France, she has a croissant in her beret. Actress Marion Cotillard is pregnant with a bébé due this spring, reports US Magazine. Cotillard’s rep has confirmed the Nine star and her equally good-looking mate French director Guillaume Canet are expecting their first. That baby is going to be reading continental philosophy and sneering at tourists in no time!

Cotillard most recently appeared in the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards-nominated Inception along side Leo Dicaprio, and memorably won the Oscar for Best Actress in 2007 for her portrayal of Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose. Cotillard and Canet met while working the French romantic thriller Love Me If You Dare in 2003, meaning that Marion’s life is now exactly the life we fantasized for ourselves when we were 16. Congratulations to the happy Gallic couple!

Porn’s Big Guns Come Out For The 2011 AVN Awards

Joslyn James, Mary Carey & The Infamous Boom Boom

If you don’t learn something new from the red carpet at the annual AVN Awards in Vegas…congrats, you know a lot about porn. While we recognized Joslyn James from her Tiger Woods sex texts and Mary Carey from Celebrity Rehab, we must admit we’d never encountered this blue individual named The Infamous Boom Boom on the right…and we strongly advise against googling…it if you’re at work. Woof.

See more stars in the gallery below, from porn princesses like Jenna Haze and Bree Olson to adult entertainment enthusiasts like Pauly Shore and Dave Navarro. Sadly, 2010′s Breakout Star Of The Year Sasha Grey skipped the event, despite a) being in Vegas and b) being nominated for nineteen trophies. Maybe she knew she wouldn’t win any!

TomKat To Skip Oscars Over Anne Hathaway’s Katie Parody

If these reports are to be believed, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are boycotting the Oscars. Why, you ask? Is it for political reasons? To make a point about a social cause? For professional reasons? Nah, it’s mostly because they can’t take a joke. Supposedly, TomKat are upset at Oscar host Anne Hathaway because Hathaway performed a submissive, zombie-like impression of Holmes on Saturday Night Live back in November. Hathaway’s impression was pretty spot-on, but a source says Katie “feels let down that Anne took to national TV to make fun of her.” Holmes and Hathaway were friends, once upon a time, and now it seems that the power couple feels betrayed. Xenu forbid these guys ever cross paths with Ricky Gervais, Kathy Griffin or anyone else who’s prone to celebrity mocking, what Hathaway did on SNL was charming compared to their m.o.

Katie may just be extra sensitive at the moment, though, given that her long-awaited History Channel miniseries about the Kennedys has been shelved. Despite having finished shooting, the project was allegedly historically inaccurate and some sources say it was actually opposed by members of the Kennedy family. Not a great time for Katie, it seems. Oh, wait, she’s rich, successful, has a cute kid and she’s part of the most powerful couple in Hollywood—we think she’ll be okay, actually.

Quentin Tarantino Will Receive Special Recognition For His Use Of Music In Film At The Critics’ Choice Movie Awards

57495105rnrnWhether it was John Travolta and Uma Thurman doing the Twist to “You Never Can Tell” in Pulp Fiction, the way that the use of “Across 110th Street” in the opening credits of Jackie Brown sets an elegiac tone for the rest of the film, or Michael Madsen’s infamous ear-slicing scene scored by “Stuck In The Middle With You,” there are few auteurs who make better use of music in their films than Quentin Tarantino.
