Welcome to part 2 of our little chat with Ms. Dakota Fanning, who in another lifetime would be that one popular girl at school who is also insanely nice. You know that girl – the perfect one no one can loathe because she’s so damn cool? Yeah, that’s our DF. We finished our precious 6 minutes together chatting about her BFF Kristen Stewart, who is apparently the most adorably domestic 20 year old in all of Los Angeles. We asked Dakota about the girliest thing the pair has ever done together and, well, you’ll have to watch the clip to find out what it is.
Hint: it involves Kristen in an apron (or so we imagine).
Hurley says that she has several besties including her husband Arun Nayar, but qualifies them all. “My overall best friend is Hugh. My ‘current affairs’ best friend is Arun, because we speak to each other all day, every day. My sister Katie is my loyal best friend. But there is a part of my life neither Arun nor Katie understand; a career part and a different emotional level where Hugh is still my number one. We’ve been best friends for 24 years and that’s not nothing.”
She also says that Grant “virtually has a bedroom at our house” and that they are neighbors as well. She also says “He’s an excellent godfather to [Hurley’s 8-year-old] Damian. He’s a part of our family – we all go on holiday together and Arun and Hugh get on incredibly well. We’re all grown up, and if I wanted to be with Hugh, we would be together.” So watch out, Arun, if Liz’s eye starts to wander, you know where she’s heading. These two are still some of our favorite 90’s stars (and look at how hot they were back in the day – they’re hot now too, but back then they were one good looking pair) and we’re happy that they’re best pals. Maybe this is how Jude Law and Sienna Miller will end up, since we have no faith in their romance.
We came across this picture of Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet from the 1998 Golden Globes, and thought it would be fun to toss it onto the flaming rumor pyre that’s heating up about their alleged relationship. Now, we know that posting a photo of the two of them hanging out together and insinuating something fishy is/was going on is like looking at a picture of our mom with Mickey Mouse at Disney World and accusing her of having a secret love affair with some dude in a B.O.-laced costume. And sure, we know they’re not really together. After all Leo just recently got back to banging Bar Rafaeli, that model who’s hotter than you. But why not have a little fun with old photos?
While you’re at it, check out some other pics of the on-screen couple cuddling up together…as friends.
We all know how Eva Longoria rolls – remember that ridiculously opulent Paris wedding? She’s a C List TV actress on a show no one’s cared about for years, but in her eyes she’s some sort of Meryl Streep-Queen Elizabeth-King Kong hybrid – a phenomenal and regal actress who takes over cities, regardless of the cost.
Of course, this means she’s celebrating her 35th birthday – a birthday no one really gives a crap about – by gathering a bevy of her BFFS, including Kim Kardashianand Robin Antin, in Miami, where they’ve been busy lunching at the W Hotel. But the real celebration is set to take place on a giant yacht, because nothing says “I’m approaching middle age and I’m terrified” like a boat whose size is eclipsed only by the celebrant’s narcissism. Happy you day, Eva!
Last night, Nicole Richie shot an interview with David Letterman (set to air on Friday) in which she confirmed that she is engaged to rocker baby daddy, Joel Madden. She showed up to the Ed Sullivan Theater looking svelte in all black, trying not to tip over from the massive rock weighing down her left hand, and later joined Joel for a romantic post-Valentine’s Day dinner. Not bad for a former heroin junkie for was once best known for having sex with ugly actors in club bathrooms. Not bad at all.
It’s especially enjoyable to admire Nicole’s success (jewelry line, clothing line, kids, general acceptance amongst the popular people in LA and NYC) when compared to that of her former friend, Paris Hilton. While Nic was smiling sweetly for the cameras, Paris was busy promoting a Brazilian beer company by getting completely sh*tfaced in front of partying onlookers. The heiress stumbled around a Rio De Janeiro club, grinded on a podium, and humped the stage floor on her hands and knees, decked out in a see-through dress that showed off her thong.
Pics of the ex-pals, and their very different lives, below.
Don’t be fooled by Demi Lovato‘s polished look, permanent smiles and gracious, wise beyond her years attitude. The girl is 17 years old, and she was caught on tape acting like it. Check her out above in London, meeting fans like a pro, when she suddenly turns sour after being asked how her BFF 4 Life, Selena Gomez, is doing. Demi’s response? “Ask Taylor,” an obvious reference to Selena’s recent gal pal and Princess of All Things Perfect and Pretty, Taylor Swift.
Sienna Miller is clearly a very forgiving person. Not only did she take back Jude Law for cheating on her with the nanny (once), she surprised us last night by stepping out with Vogue editor Anna Wintour at the premiere of The September Issue. Lest anyone forget, this is the documentary about the September 2007 issue of the fashion bible with Sienna on the cover – where her hair is dubbed “unruly” and appearance “toothy” by the formidable editrix.
While making nice with Anna Wintour isn’t exactly a debate – this woman can make or break careers, after all – our eyebrows were raised by Sienna’s dinner companion after the NYC premiere. She apparently spent a late date with Lindsay Lohan and her sister Ali at the exclusive Waverly Inn – the same Lindsay who reportedly dubbed her a “no-talent crackhead” a couple of years back. Sienna’s obviously a sharp operator, keeping those frenemies close. Um, we think. [Photos: WireImage/Splash News Online]
Jennifer Aniston can’t catch a break when it comes to people dishing about her love life, but now even her friendships are fair game for tabloids. The National Enquirer is claiming that Jen and her one-time BFF Courteney Cox are on the outs. Their source claims that, “Jen is almost a workaholic who spends her free time dating and hunting for Mr. Right, while Courteney is happily married and busy juggling work and motherhood. . .right now they’ve drifted apart because they’re at different stages in their lives, with different priorities.” The rag says that Cox has chosen friends whose lifestyles mesh a little bit better with her own, and she’s been hanging out more with Laura Dern and Ben Harper, and Tobey Maguire and his wife Jennifer Meyer, who all have kids.
Apparently Jen was too busy on-set to even show up at Courteney’s 45th birthday party on June 15. Workaholic Jen was shooting her upcoming film Bounty Hunter in New York that day. Somewhere, Lisa Kudrow is living a more quiet life than the rest of her old Friends cast-mates and loving it. [Photo: GettyImages]
