Sorry, Bravo, that we haven’t been tuning in for Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding. It’s just, well, the name instantly puts Kim Zolciak’s godawful “song” in our heads. Which, we know, is exactly the point. Anyway, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star’s wedding planning spin-off certainly caught our attention this week, when the 34-year-old decided on a clever gift for her fiance, Atlanta Falcons defensive end Kroy Biermann: getting his football jersey painted on her naked torso for a sexy photo shoot. This is actually way sweeter and more personalized than mere lingerie, don’t you think? Also, weirder.
Anyway, the photos got us thinking about all the other lovely ladies who’ve been using their bodies as canvases of late — though actually, for not as sweet reasons. Rihanna did it for her recent “Where Have You Been” video. Heidi Klum did it for an Astor ad. Ashley Greene did it for Sobe. (None of them went for the same wrinkly shirt illusion as Kim, either, by the way.) Which is your favorite look?
If the puppy-on-baby love doesn’t get you, the tiny spacesuit will. We readily admit to being big cry babies; put a dog, toddler and/or elderly person in a car commercial and we are on the floor, wracked with sobs. As such, hearing Charlize Theron talk about adopting her infant son Jackson had actual tears of adorableness sliding down our faces onto our keyboards. The sweetest things the the Snow White And The Huntsman star said of becoming a new family include:
On her canine companions: “This was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever witnessed. From the moment this baby came into our home, those two dogs have never been more in love.”
On the lengthy adoption process: “My mom said the most beautiful thing. I’m going to cry. She said, “It took me nine months to fall in love with you while you were growing in my stomach; it took you two years to fall in love with this little baby.”
On being a mom: “It feels exactly like it’s supposed to feel. I don’t know how to describe it. It just feels right.”
On, and then Ellen gives Charlize a little space exploration suit for Jackson to wear in honor of her upcoming sci-fi thriller Prometheus. Good thing we put this dog bed under our desk to curl up and sob on. If that wasn’t enough cuteness to tug at your heartstrings, check out some photos of Charlize and Jackson out and about under the jump. After that…just try looking at that teeny helmet again, because you are made of stone! Read more…
We know your oh-so-happy-trail is standing on end right now at the prospect of hearing the Snow White and the Hunstman cast reading you Fifty Shades of Greylike some kind of book-on-tape orgy. Hope you’re into nervous giggling and references to corn! “I’m kind of dying to read it. I shall read this,” Kristen Stewart laughs as she flips through the recent erotica sensation on MTV Afterhours, along with Chris Hemsworth, Sam Claflin and Charlize Theron. “‘Oh, the possibilities’…I can’t believe I’m reading this.” Cracks KStew, “I see people reading this on airplanes and I’m like, “Ew, take that blanket off your lap, you freak.’ I need to read this. That’s intense, man.” You guys, she could be talking about you on that airplane! You could be that freak! And you probably are!
On a slightly less exciting note, there is no way Kristen has read your Twilight fan fiction; she’s never taken the time to really delve into it. “No, I haven’t. I am interested, I guess.,” Stewart laughs. “I just haven not Googled that one yet.” Don’t worry! If we know the Internet like we think we do, people will still be writing sexy Twilight fan fic after the sun burns out. Oh, and did we mention Charlize tries to yank off host Josh Horowitz‘s shoes in a fit of literary-inspired lust? This cast know hows to give people what they want! “People” being a “bunch of perverts,” of course.
Here’s something cool I’ve learned about Charlize Theron: She’s really funny. She was hilarious through out our interview at the Snow White and the Huntsman junket in England last weekend, and she spent the entire press day cracking jokes and doing bits with everyone. I’ve always wondered why she doesn’t do more comedy, especially because her story arc as MRF Rita Leeds on Arrested Development (one of the greatest shows of all time, IMHO), is so.damn.funny. If you haven’t seen it please stop reading this blog post immediately, run to Netflix, and thank me when you’re done.
After years of will they or won’t they, it was recently confirmed that an Arrested Development movie is in the works, for reals, after a brief run on TV. And so of course I had to dork out and ask Charlize if she’d consider reprising her role as Rita on the big screen. Good news, AD fans! The actress calls her time on the show “one of my favorite experiences I’ve ever had” and says she’d love to be a part of the film. Also she describes herself as “a nerd,” which gave me a serious case of heart explosions. Clip above.
Oh hey, guys? Charlize Theron didn’t have a proper set of teeth until her adult teeth grew in. We know! As if we didn’t like her enough already! “I had these fangs because I had jaundice when I was a kid and I was put on so many antibiotics that my teeth rotted. They had to cut them out,” the Snow White And The Huntsman actress admitted to the U.K.’s The Sun. “I never had [baby] teeth. That was tough, you know, being in school having photos taken while I was pretending I had teeth. It was hideous.” We thought Young Adult was the height of our affection for Charlize, and then this happens. It turns out that we can always love this woman more!
We don’t mean to be flippant about something so awful (yes, we do), but doesn’t this make a lot of sense? Haven’t you said to yourself, “How did this model-turned-actress manage to be incredibly gorgeous and cool and have a wicked sense of humor?” It’s because she had to develop an awesome personality! To make up for her lack of teeth! Now, we’re not saying that you can’t be beautiful and amazing and hilarious all on your own…but having to have all your baby teeth removed definitely couldn’t hurt. Metaphorically-speaking, of course. Those suckers probably hurt like the devil getting removed.
Although Kristen Stewart can glam it up like no other on the red carpet, it’s no secret that she’s much more at home in a pair of jeans and sneakers. Then again, aren’t we all? The only difference is that Kristen can make a vintage t-shirt look just as Vogue-y as a zillion dollar Monique Lhuillier dress! Whatever the occasion, the actress has made a habit of changing out of her high style gowns (or suits) into something a little more chill as the evening goes on. Last night was no different as Kstew ditched the sheer Marchesa she wore to the Snow White And The Huntsman premiere in London for a more rock ‘n’ roll jeans and leather jacket. She reportedly partied until 5 AM at Quo Vadis Private Members Club along side fellow SWATH star Charlize Theron and “boyfriend” (!) Robert Pattinson. Rock on, Kristen! Check out some of her best dress up/dress down looks in the gallery below.
The cast of Snow White and the Huntsman capped off three days of interviewing, cavorting through castles and baby-delivering with a live-streamed red carpet premiere in London’s Leicester Square. After walking up and down the carpet to sign tons of autographs for fans, Charlize Theron thanked them all for braving the cold weather, without ever once complaining about how she herself felt in her sleeveless, ultra-sheer, black Christian Dior Haute Couture gown. We’re not sure if the lacy silver and black Marchesa number Kristen Stewart wore provided much more warmth, but it very much suited the gothic-fairytale look of the film. Actually, Kristen told reporters that what would surprise viewers is how beautiful the lighter parts of the movie are, and praised director Rupert Sanders for creating “a world I wanted to live in.” What she had to say about her character is basically everything her fans adore about Kristen herself: “Her strength isn’t about her size; her strength is her mind and heart.”
Happy Mother’s Day! In honor of this glorious day saluting all mothers, MILFs, and mommies-to-be, we’d like to thank the mamas who gave us Hollywood’s hottest celebs. You just know there is an amazingly awesome woman responsible for the boy who became Ryan Gosling, and she therefore deserves many, many thanks. Without these moms, we would not have Rihanna’s “Oh na na,” Ellen DeGeneres’ dance moves, or any of Justin Bieber’s swag. Today, we’re celebrating Mother’s Day with little guessing game: We’ll show you picture of a hot mama and you guess their famous son or daughter. Click the pics in order or it’s totally cheating, and your mama wouldn’t approve of that. Now let the games begin!
We’re pretty sure any time spent in a tight, lively semicircle with the main cast of Snow White and the Huntsman would be a string of potty-mouthed delights, which is why we appreciate MTV polishing their interview with the film’s stars Charlize Theron, Kristen Stewart,Chris Hemsworth and Sam Claflin down to the shiniest, most precious nuggets for our enjoyment. With apologies to a mostly silent Claflin, our favorites of the favorites include:
Charlize’s explanation as to why they all agreed to stick around for the interview: “Well, we’re all tied to these chairs. What you can’t see is that we couldn’t leave if we wanted to.”
Kristen’s list of alternative uses for swords: “It’s a great back scratcher,” she explains, demonstrating with a blade. “You can lean on it when you get tired. You can f— people.” Kristen then jabs her prop sword at Charlize. Being on-set with these weirdos seems like it would have been heaven.
Chris’s axe-twirling and Charlize’s horrified squeal in response.
Best of all, KStew rushing to the defense of Theron’s evil queen. “I don’t like that word, by the way,” she declares, when a Twitter users asks if Theron enjoyed playing a “b—-.” Says Kristen, “She didn’t play a b—-.” A sweet thing to say, considering how malicious Theron’s queen gets with Stewart’s princess in the latest Snow White And The Huntsman clip. Are these guys blurring the line between the actor and the character a little bit? We don’t blame them. We did the same when Hemsworth started whipping that axe around. Dang, son…
