Rihanna and Chris Brown have had a roller coaster of a relationship. Their recent split has The Gossip Table wondering: Are Rihanna and Chris Brown done for good? Chloe Melas says that the two are definitely over. Melas also chats on the phone with Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, who happens to be friends with Rihanna. (Who knew?) The pint-size star also talks about her upcoming wedding.
It turns out Bradley Cooper was not People‘s first choice for the 2011 Sexiest Man Alive. Who was? The Gossip Table has the scoop!
Everyone’s taken a truly odd job at some point in their life to pay the rent. The difference between normal people and movie stars is that for those movie stars, those truly odd jobs were goofy commercials. What does that mean? It means that we can watch and laugh at them anytime we want.
Why is Bradley Cooper bringing pints of Haagen Dazs to fancy parties? What did Reese Witherspoon do wrong this time? And Iron Man 3 is the biggest movie in the country, but will Tony Stark return in a sequel?
Where is Selena Gomez jetting off to next this spring? Will we ever get a sequel to Finding Nemo? All this, plus Magic Johnson‘s fashionable son strolls out in public with his boyfriend, in today’s Last Lap.
Bradley Cooper was officially named The Sexiest Man In The World by People Magazine, which pretty much gives him license to be able to date any star in the universe. And it seems like Brad has set his sights not on an A-list actress, but 20-year old Suki Waterhouse!
Awards season fashion-judging is almost more fun than watching the awards themselves (definitely the case with Sunday’s flat, terribly un-PC Oscars ceremony). For your armchair fashion policing pleasure, we created a Style Points race to track how the fashions of the following high wattage stars stacked up during Awards Season: Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Lawrence, Eddie Redmayne, Amanda Seyfried, Bradley Cooper, Jessica Chastain and Kerry Washington.

Bradley Cooper is enormously tall, handsome and confident, with an Oscar nomination under his belt and the man hair version of Kim Kardashian’s butt (that is to say: ridiculously, comically huge). It seems he might just be super-human! And yet – all we needed to see were these photos of him dancing with actress Alice Eve at a BAFTAs after-party to knock him back down to regular guy status, like a werewolf when the moon disappears.
In the pics, which you can see in the gallery below, Bradley looks like every other dude-brah who’s ever danced too hard to “Hey Ya” at a wedding with a bridesmaid he just met – sweaty and flushed while attempting to flirt awkwardly. Is it possible this new vision of BCoops makes him even more charming?
Bradley Cooper must be feeling the pressure to perform these days. It’s been months since he handed over his Sexiest Man in the World crown to Channing Tatum, and basically traded it in for an Oscar nomination. But once you have an “-iest” title, it’s really hard to go to just being a nominee (and face it, though WE love his performance in Silver Linings Playbook best of all, he’s up against Daniel Day Lewis). Meanwhile, he’s watching his much younger co-star Jennifer Lawrence grab all sorts of “sexiest” labels while also becoming a favorite to take home her own Oscar. So we think we understand why Bradley is stepping things up a bit in the PR department. And no, he’s not doing more interviews in French or talking about his uneven boobs on late-night shows. He’s getting all serious about his Silver Linings role as being very important for sufferers of mental illness.
On last night’s Hardball, he told Chris Matthews that people with bipolar disorder have told him, “I actually feel like this film sees who I am,” he said. “Because it’s heavily stigmatized. It’s not a very treatable disease. It’s a condition, that’s sort of, if we liken it to cancer, diagnosed at stage four. Well, that’s way too late. So hopefully, a movie like this will help it become, you know, [diagnosed] in the onset.”
Right after making that appearance, Cooper went to speak to 50 military vets after a screening of his film at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in D.C. And then this morning he was scheduled to speak about mental health at the Center for American Progress.
This one’s going to be a collector’s item. The legendary photographer, Bruce Weber, has shot Vanity Fair‘s 19th Hollywood Portfolio (out in March) which not only features Emma Stone, Bradley Cooper and Ben Affleck on the cover, it has a gorgeous spread of stars — 75 in all — in vintage poses inside as well. All of them were photographed in spots that have been featured in some memorable movies making the areas themselves legendary, much like the films they were spotted in. The bed on the cover, for instance, is the bed that’s part of that famous scene in The Godfather (1972), where the movie producer wakes up with his horse’s head in it. And the bed’s in the mansion used in the film as well, so you have the real deal. Some of these photographers are truly breathtaking. Kerry Washington looking like a gorgeous Old Hollywood singer, Olivia Wilde in vintage showgirl gear, Armie Hammer like a lonely ’50s naval captain with a couple of hours to spare before he has to set sail again — Weber’s put together a portfolio that has the sepia tint of Hollywood nostalgia firmly, but perfectly in place. Bella Heathcote and Eddie Redmayne dressed up (and dancing) like Fred and Ginger with a gorilla in their midst is another sight to behold. Make sure you check out the behind-the-scenes shots of celebrities like Selena Gomez and Brad caught between shots.
