Before we say anything about what everyone else wore, we need to say this … HOLY SH–, CHARLIZE THERON! How does she do it? And by that we mean, how does she look like that? The CinemaCon 2012 Awards Ceremony went down at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas last night, and Charlize slinked down the red carpet wearing the sexiest, raciest Dion Lee LBD in the history of all little black dresses. The fact that she wore strappy Giuseppe Zanotti heels didn’t hurt either. Take a bow, Charlize.
Also wearing black at the same event were Jennifer Garner and Michelle Pfeiffer. Jennifer wasn’t quite working her Michael Kors dress, perhaps because it should have been worn with different shoes. The ones she had on looked like bandages and were far too clunky. Michelle defied age in her a sheer-panelled dress that showed off a rocking bod. Our favorite, other than Charlize, would be Chloe Moretz who wore a metallic dark blue Kenzo dress with hidden slant pockets.
Other celebrities who attended included the likes of Josh Hutcherson, Anna Faris and Jeremy Renner, to name a few.

We all love a good marijuana scandal — let’s say it’s the kind of thing that proves the rich and famous are human. Naturally, rappers like Wiz Khalifa actors like James Franco are the equivalent of a super prompt delivery service for these stories. But sometimes we like the special stuff, like when a less obvious star is caught on camera like Miley Cyrus smoking salvia on her 18th birthday. And it’s a riot when celebs full-on boast of their relationship with the green stuff, like Soulja Boy did via Twitter. Were we a little surprised when Robin Thicke was busted for pot possession? Hmm, maybe just by the fact that he got caught.
Now, it’s not like we’re advocating drug use here, folks. We’re just going to celebrate 4/20 the best way we know how, by looking at all our favorite famous people, including Kristen Stewart , Rihanna and Rupert Grint with the infamous Ms. Mary Jane.

Looks like someone is trying to give Angelina Jolie’s Oscar leg-show a run for its money. And if there’s anyone who’s capable of that, it really is Charlize Theron. The actress and her ridiculously toned gams are on the May cover of Vogue, wearing a lovely icy-blue Versace gown, we might add. Her hair is a little on the matronly side, but we’ll let go of the nitpicking, for now. As we expected (and hoped for), the interview does delve into Charlize being a new mom to adopted baby, Jackson, who she says “is the coolest kid ever.”
She talks about what kind of mother she wants to be and is looking close to home for inspiration, revealing she wants “to be like my mom. Fair, tough, loving and supportive. My mom has made it possible for me to be who I am. Our family is everything. Her greatest skill was encouraging me to find my own person and own independence.” Speaking of mothers, she does joke about her reasons for starting a family, adding, “I don’t think my mom could wait any more!” We’re going to have to wait for the magazine to hear more, but until then, the cover suits us just fine.

With The Hunger Games raking in $214 million over its opening weekend and the trailer for Snow White and the Huntsman topping last week’s Twitter trends, one thing seems sure: female action stars are having the best year ever, and it’s only March. And with Rooney Mara‘s Oscar nod for Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, teaser trailers for Breaking Dawn Part 2 (Kristen Stewart as vampire Bella!) and The Host giving us chills and Lily Collins confirming her role in The Mortal Instruments, the ladies leading up 2012/13′s biggest action flicks are in good company.
We took a look at the women who are establishing themselves as the action heroines of the future, as well as some actresses from whom we want to see more onscreen butt-kicking. Did we miss anyone on our list? Check out our gallery and then let us know!
Take a minute and soak in this gorgeous photo of Prometheus co-stars Charlize Theron and Michael Fassbender, snapped at Wonder-Con this weekend. Just let their majestic gene pool wash over you, and then dare to dream of what it would be like if these two A-List singletons were a couple. Yes, we are currently sitting here “shipping” Charlize and Fassy (Charbender?), and with good reason.
1) They are two of the most attractive people on the planet, and staring at two attractive people never gets old.
2) They are two of the most talented people on the planet, and imagining them conquering awards season together gets our film nerd panties in a twist.
3) Charlize has a new baby and we want to see Michael Fassbender hold a baby!
4) For more LOL-filled moments like the ones we got at Wonder-Con, which included Charlize jokingly complimenting Michael on his manhood. “Your penis was a revelation,” she said about the actor’s full-frontal reveal in Shame. “I’m available to work with it any time.”
For more pics of the co-stars, check out our gallery below and be sure to watch the Prometheus trailer, which looks awesome.
We’re sometimes under the illusion that motherhood has a calming effect on celebrities, making them less interesting to gossips and paparazzi. And then we remember Britney Spears (and, like, our own mothers). Nope, moms are people too, and that means they are bound to make their kids want to disown them. And the children of celeb moms have it even worse than the rest of us. This weekend gave us so many examples of things that would have made us stomp into our rooms, put on the “Keep Out!” sign and write frantically in our diaries how we would be the first documented case of dying of embarrassment.
1. Jessica Simpson wore this denim, snakeskin-patterned, ruffled tent to her baby shower. And still insists she’s having only one little girl.
2. Kris Jenner posted a photo of herself naked and pregnant with Rob Kardashian on her blog to wish him a happy birthday on Saturday. “Happy 25th birthday to my wonderful, handsome son, Rob!! Rob, you are the best son a mother could ask for and you make me proud every day. I love you so much!!”
Even Twilight fans have to admit that until the second half of Breaking Dawn, Bella’s heroism is mostly about self-sacrifice and getting the vampires and werewolves to fight for her. That’s kind of the fate of the typical fairy-tale princess, too. They’re selfless and determined, sure, but it’s the prince who always whips out his sword (sorry) and saves the day. That’s why we’re thrilled to see the opposite is true of Kristen Stewart’s princess in Snow White and the Huntsman, as far as we can tell from the brand-new trailer that premiered online this morning. Previous trailers showcased Charlize Theron’s pure evil and Chris Hemsworth’s conflicting motives (kill Snow White or stand by her side?), while KStew was a silent figure in the distance. Now, we get up close to the exiled princess, and finally hear her talk. And this looks like one fairy tale where it’s up to the girl to save the day.
“What does she want from me?” Snow White asks an unseen person. Here’s our first sample of Kristen’s English accent, which is neutral enough to fit our standard vision of what fairy-tale characters sound like without being distracting. We hate to see our heroine on her back, but her fierce expression suggests she won’t be prone for long.
Charlize Theron’s new baby Jackson was just announced to the world on Wednesday, but it seems like Theron already has the parenting thing down pat. As for the key to motherhood with her newly adopted 4-month-old son, Charlize gave a shout-out to tightly-wrapped baby blankets on Ryan Seacrest‘s KIIS FM show this morning. “I didn’t think I would be a fan of the swaddling, but the swaddling’s pretty amazing,” the Academy Award-winng actress mused. “It sort of looks a bit like a straightjacket — you’re like, ‘Is this child abuse?’ — but for some reason they just love it.” We’d love it if Charlize Theron swaddled us too! Oh god…did we just type that out loud?
Raved Charlize, “It’s been amazing, the amount of emails and congratulations. Everyone’s just been so lovely — it’s been really nice.” That being said, it’s not just in the motherhood arena that the Snow White and The Huntsman actress has been killing it as of late. “She can level you,” Kristen Stewart boasted to MTV about her costar in their upcoming fantasy epic. “Around the time I was negotiating to do this, the wheel starts to turn…I was watching television one night and The Shining came on,” Theron explained to Seacrest about her evil queen role. “I was just like, ‘Oh my God, that’s it, she’s Jack Nicholson in The Shining.’ Locked in her hotel castle going slowly crazy.” Charlize gets to be a good mom and a vengeful iconic villain? It’s every little girl’s dream come true!

Charlize Theron is already an excellent actress, model and paragon of human attractiveness. Now she can proudly add “Mom” to her long list of “Things I Am The Most Awesome At,” seeing as how The Snow White and the Huntsman star announced today that she has “adopted a child.” According to the statement her rep gave People, “She is the proud mom of a healthy baby boy named Jackson.” We can’t wait until Theron’s son is old enough to see her killing it in Young Adult! Or Arrested Development! Or Monster! Oh wait…maybe not Monster until much, much later. Or never. In the meantime, who didn’t love Mighty Joe Young? Not us, that’s for sure!
With the arrival of her first child Theron joins the long, illustrious list of A-listers who have adopted adorable baboos, including but not limited to: Mariska Hartigay, Sandra Bullock, Madonna, Katherine Heigl and, of course, one Ms. Angelina Jolie. While having baby friends is clearly an important life goal for the currently unattached actress, getting married currently is not. “I really want for myself a long-term relationship, and I have been in long-term relationships,” Theron told Piers Morgan last year. “The actual ceremony is not something that is important to me, but I see the importance for other people.” Though, of course, if she decides to get hitched, Charlize will obviously be the best at it. In the meantime, congratulations to you, girl! And to tiny Jackson!

Kristen Stewart devotees and the rest of us who’ve been drawn in by what little we’ve seen of Snow White and the Huntsman are counting down the days until the next trailer airs during Monday’s installment of The Voice. But Universal was kind enough to tease it with a sneak peek of the sneak peek, released on YouTube yesterday, along with three behind-the-scenes videos of the flick, which also stars Charlize Theron as evil Queen Ravenna and Chris Hemsworth as the titular Huntsman. And it just made us want more. We narrowed our wishes down to five:
1. KStew’s English accent! We all know she got Robert Pattinson’s seal of approval, but we want to hear it for ourselves.
