Creative people can be extremely critical, especially when judging their own work. That helps explain why sometimes actors just can’t resist taking a shot at their new film, even when they’re out on a press tour promoting it! Oof…but is it really that bad? Most of the time, the answer is yes. And not even a seven figure paycheck can gloss over that hard truth.
Are Kate Winslet‘s ex-husbands involved with raising their kids? What did Ivanka Trump name her newborn son? Is the new “Batman Vs. Superman” film shooting this weekend?
Is Kate Winslet‘s third pregnancy keeping her down? Is Zach Galifianakis going to be a dad? Did Paul Giamatti let it slip that Spider-Man will be facing down the Sinister Six?
Jane Austen wrote some of the most enduring love stories of all time, but the actors and actresses who star in film and television adaptations of her work can inspire a lot of lust. Maybe it’s hard to see their inherent hotness when they’re stuck in frumpy dresses and fussy cravats, but the 20 actors and actresses on our list are drop dead sexy in real modern life.
Has Matt Smith‘s replacement on Doctor Who already been cast? Is Kate Winslet expecting a baby with her new husband? Did Lily Collins trade in on her famous dad’s name for work? All this in today’s First Dibs.
Forget Iron Man (1-3) or The Avengers for that matter, these celebrities are the real deal (and would make a great cast in the ultimate ensemble superhero movie).
Earlier this week, we told you about how Miley Cyrus referred to her boyfriend/fiance/superstud Liam Hemsworth as her “hubby” in an interview with Cosmopolitan. The quote sparked an untold number of rumors suggestion that the power-couple have already tied the knot without us catching on. Well, it turns out we missed a crucial part of the interview: She actually straight up said she was married, y’all! “I’m happy I don’t have to date anyone,” she said within the pages. And later on while telling an anecdote she dropped another glaring hint nugget: “‘I’m so happy I’m married, because you guys are so cruel!’”
OK, so she might have just taken a conversational short cut, and what she meant to say was “I’m so happy that I’m about to get married in the very near future.” But that’s kind of a mouthful, no? A rep for Hemsworth strenuously denied the wedding bell buzz to People, saying that they are ”definitely NOT married.”
But hey, reps deny stuff all the time. And it doesn’t explain those Twitpics from Christmas that showed Miley and Liam wearing matching rings. And it really doesn’t explain why those same photos mysteriously vanished soon after being posted! Did Miley and Liam get married in secret? It wouldn’t be the first time in Hollywood history. Head on down to the gallery below and see 20 other famous couples who got hitched on the super DL!

We’re stuffing our jacket pockets with Kleenex as we speak! Variety announced today that Kate Winslet is currently in talks with Divergent director Neil Burger to joing the upcoming film based on the YA novel of the same name. While there’s no word as to what role the Academy Award-winning actress might take, based on what fans are squealing online we’re guessing Winslet would be awesome as Natalie Prior, wise, protective mother of Shailene Woodley‘s teen protagonist Tris. Alternately, Winslet could potentially be eying the role of Jeanine Matthews, the cunning, war-mongering leader of the book’s Erudite political faction. In either case…well, we won’t spoil the entire movie, but let’s just say there’s a reason Veronica Roth’s book series is described as “dystopian.” Things do not pan out for all the film’s major players.
The casting news comes just a few weeks after word that Alex Pettyfer, Lucas Till and Jeremy Irvine are still in the running to play Four, fellow future dweller and romantic interest to Woodley’s Tris. What do you think? Is Winslet destined to play Natalie? Are there any names you’d like to throw in the hat before the cast is confirmed (knowing of course that we are the only ones who will be reading from said hat)?

We know second and third marriages often go down without fanfare, but we’re still a bit surprised that Kate Winslet didn’t tell us all about her plans to marry her spectacularly named boyfriend Ned Rocknroll this month. According to E! Online, the Oscar winner’s rep confirmed that the couple wed in New York earlier this month in front of “her two children and a very few friends and family” after getting engaged over the summer. Actually, we shouldn’t take it personally that she forgot to invite us — according to The Sun, even their dads didn’t know the wedding had taken place. Or that’s what they told the tab, anyway. The U.K. paper also reported that Kate’s Titanic co-star Leonardo DiCaprio gave her away.
Winslet and Rocknroll (born Abel Smith) have been dating for a little over a year, ever since they both escaped that dramatic fire at Ned’s Uncle Richard Branson’s private island estate. Yes, it was that time when Kate reportedly carried Branson’s 90-year-old mother, Eve, out of the burning building. Those kind of heroics could win any man’s heart, right? (Though, oops, Kate was there with another guy at the time!)
This is Winslet’s third marriage, after Jim Threapleton and Sam Mendes. Rocknroll works for his uncle’s Virgin Galactic, but no word yet on whether they’ll honeymoon in space.

On Anne Hathaway, how much do we love thee? Let us count the awesome quotes about weight you shared with Glamour. “I still feel the stress over ‘Am I thin enough? Am I too thin? Is my body the right shape?’” the Les Miserables actress admitted. “There’s an obsessive quality to it that I thought I would’ve grown out of by now. It’s an ongoing source of shame for me.” On an unrelated note, we love how Glamour didn’t sandblast Hathaway’s face into an unrecognizable doll mask like some Photoshop-happy magazines do. Well-played, you guys!
We’ve said before how much we’ve been enjoying the celebrity-lead discussion about weight recently, and our interest is even more piqued by Hathaway’s inclusion in our 20 Stars Who Took Their Bodies To Extremes For The Screen list. Basically what we’re saying is, Anne’s words lead us to collect our favorite brutally honest celeb quotes about weight. Some of them are uplifting, some of them are depressing, but all of them are a good reminder than famous people are just meat puppets like us. Meat puppets with great hair and nicer cars, but meat puppets none the less.
