Harry Potter starlet Bonnie Wright showed up at Jo Malone’s Thoroughly Proper Party in London on Wednesday lacking her long flowing locks. After years of being linked to her character Ginny Weasley with trademark titan tresses, maybe she followed in the footsteps of Emma Watson, who famously cropped her hair as soon as the series ended to get some distance from the franchise. Or she’s just hopping on the short hair band wagon!
It seems like ever A-lister has gotten the urge to hack of the hair this year. Some like Anne Hathaway, Charlize Theron and Evangeline Lilly went super short for film roles, whereas former American Idol singer Kellie Pickler got a buzz to support her friend being treated for cancer. And then there are music mama’s like Rihanna, Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys who went short just for the hell of it. Head on down to the gallery below to see 20 lovely ladies who took the hair plunge in 2012!

We may not have the big bucks to get the fancy blowouts celebrities get done by the best hairstylists, but there’s at least one thing we can get that puts us in the same league. Hair accessories, which have been huge this year! Floral head-pieces, sparkling stars, crystal hair-bows, and minimal metallic headbands have been all the rage and spotted on the likes of Katy Perry, Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron and Jennifer Lawrence. And plenty more, but we’ve culled out our top 15 looks for you out of all of 2012.
A couple of stand-outs for us. Sarah Jessica Parker‘s custom Mickey Mouse ears made by L’Wren Scott, worn when she hosted the Barneys New York And Disney Electric Holiday Window Unveiling in November, were to die for. Emma Stone‘s delicate gold Jennifer Behr laurel leaf bandeaux worn at the The Amazing Spider-Man premiere at Oktyabr cinema hall in Moscow in June had us floored. Chloe Moretz also wore a darling crystal hair-bow at the National Board of Review Awards gala in January that wasn’t just age-appropriate. We insist it’s appropriate for every age. Which means a 30-year-old woman (i.e. this writer) gets to wear one and not feel like we’re edging in on a 14-year-old’s style territory! Feel free to pore through our gallery for the rest of the looks!

Maybe we just have baby bumps on the brain (OK, we definitely do), but after
We’d like to start by saying that we love our work. We just love pizza, ice cream cakes and those Girl Scout cookies with the coconut a hell of a lot more. And that’s the thing that separates us from the truly great actors. Well, that and a zillion KFC buckets worth of talent! Uber-dedicated movie stars will sometimes go the extra mile and put their bodies through insane physical transformations that make us sore just watching them up there on the big screen. Many hit the gym ruthlessly to purge every excess pound from their body and slim down, while some (occasionally) take a few weeks to pack on the pounds for a role. If it were us we’d choose the pound-packing parts exclusively, but hey!
More recently Anne Hathaway, Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto took the tougher route and each shed an unbelievable amount of weight for their respective roles. Anne famously lost 25 pounds for the part of Fantine in the big screen adaptation of Les Miserables by eating two thin squares of oatmeal paste a day! We imagine that includes no dessert? McConaughey jettisoned his Magic Mike six-pack to play the HIV positive lead in Dallas Buyers Club, and his whopping 40 pound weight loss has lead some to wonder if he’s going too far. It’s got to be rough, but they certainly aren’t the first famous folks to go through such a dramatic body overhaul before going in front of the camera. Head on down to the gallery below for more thespians who took their bodies to crazy town, all in the name of their art. Sit down with a nice bag of chips and enjoy!

Jared Leto showed off his newly shaved eyebrows Monday night as he arrived at the 22nd annual Gotham Independent Film Awards in New York City. Thanks, Jared, we weren’t planning on sleeping between now and Christmas, anyhow. The freaky new look is apparently for his role in The Dallas Buyers Club, the same flick that caused Matthew McConaughey to starve himself down to the size of our pinky. Jared himself was recently photographed in some very loud drag for the role. Damn, this movie has gotta be some serious Oscar-bait!
We’ve all heard about actors changing their hairstyles for film roles, but it’s a bit more rare to be told to buzz the brows! But still Leto is by no means the first guy who’s had to do crazy stuff to his eyebrows in the name of Hollywood glory. Head down to the gallery below to see 10 famous faces with some wacked out brows!

We’ve all fallen in love with Amber Rose for her funky style as much as her sweet demeanor — that includes her signature, super-short haircut. But the soon-to-be Mrs. Wiz Khalifa may need to guard her buzzcut crown, because Charlize Theron has been owning the minimal style lately, albeit for her role in Mad Max: Fury Road.
Over the years we’ve seen a number ladies in Hollywood bravely shave their heads for roles — like Demi Moore in G.I. Jane or Natalie Portman in V for Vendetta — so Charlize is hardly alone in shearing her beautiful flowing blonde locks for an edgy brunette cap. But how does she stand up to a model who makes wearing the near-bald hairstyle a fashion statement on a daily basis? Well, we can’t decide for ourselves, so we’re putting this question to you: Whose hotter hairless? Peruse the gallery and vote. Poll closes Sunday at midnight!

We believe this story as far as we can metaphorically throw it, but as it involves our personal favorite Christian Grey candidate and amateur tattoo artist/rapper Tom Hardy, we also kind of love repeating it. According to Radar Online, Hardy is not getting along with his Mad Max: Fury Road co-star Charlize Theron because he insists on staying in character when cameras aren’t rolling. “Professionally, they are doing a wonderful job, but in-between takes Tom likes to stay in character and is constantly talking to himself and mumbling things,” Radar’s source says of Hardy, playing the titular role made famous by Mel Gibson. “Charlize has tried to talk to him during breaks in filming but he shuts himself off from the rest of the cast.”
Today Mila Kunis follows in the footsteps of mega hotties like Rihanna, Charlize Theron and Angelina Jolie as she assumes the title of Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive. That’s a pretty heady distinction, but there’s no doubt in our mind that she totally earned this honor. Don’t believe us? Well we’ve got 45 reasons right here that prove without a doubt that the lovely Miss Kunis is definitely the world’s sexiest woman this year, and possibly every year! Take a look…
1. She Saved A Dude’s Life
For real. When a man started seizing in her home, the actress busted out some quick EMT skills before the professionals arrived.
2. She Speaks Russian
Is there anything hotter than a woman speaking a foreign language? Yes: A woman speaking a foreign language while laying the smackdown. Sure, Russian may not be the international language of seduction. Yet Mila totally pulls it off.
We were just nodding our heads in agreement with Crushable’s editorial, urging people to stop calling Kristen Stewart a homewrecker without putting any blame on the actual married person in the affair, Rupert Sanders, when we got this terrible story from Radar Online, which basically indicates that Charlize Theron thinks Kristen Stewart is a homewrecker.
“Charlize is absolutely fuming with Kristen for having an affair with Rupert,” the gossip site quotes an “insider” as saying. “She is very tight with Liberty, has often socialized with the family over dinner and cannot believe Kristen has done this.”
Sanders’ wife, Liberty Ross, played Stewart’s mother in Snow White and the Huntsman, and Theron befriended both of her co-stars on the set. The story goes on to state how Theron feels sympathy for Liberty and her two children and thinks Kristen betrayed her trust. Of course, this all sounds like pure speculation to us. Probably, if you were friends with two people and one of them had an affair with the other’s husband, you would be fuming too. But also, if this is true, we hope Charlize keeps up with the “older sister” feelings she has for Kristen and maybe guides her through this difficult time.
But again, we wonder where the anger is for director Sanders, who’s supposed to be the older and wiser person in all of this. And is this week OVER yet?

We’re not talking about the August W Magazine cover of Michael Fassbender and Charlize Theron, guys. That released a few days ago, and you can see it here. It was steamy alright, but it did nothing to prepare us for the heat that lay on the pages inside the magazine. That gorgeous silver necklace Charlize is wearing on the cover, so visible thanks to the deep, plunging neckline of her Dior Archive dress, is by Tiffany & Co, FYI. If someone is feeling generous and would like to send it over a present, feel free. The newly released photo shoot of the two Prometheus stars is damp, sexy, slightly S&M and has us swooning. Not in a Mills & Boon kind of way, but in a Fifty Shades of Greykind of way, if you know what we mean. The cover story is pretty great two, with Fassbender and Theron both talking about life, movies and their friendship. A hilarious moment comes about when they’re asked, “What’s harder to do? A death scene or a sex scene?” Charlize replies, “It depends on who you’re doing the sex scene with. I don’t have issues being naked. That sounds very slutty.” But enough talk about reading and let’s talk photos again. Specifically the one that’s coming up after the jump. Warning: it’s Charlize in thigh-high stocking and Michael shirtless, again. Read more…
