The 100 Hottest Celebrity Bikini Pics Of 2012

Thte 175 Hottest Bikini Photos Of 2012

Merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah, joyful Kwanzaa, and — why not? — happy birthday too, while you’re at it! It’s the holiday seasons, folks; the time of year for giving to our nearest and dearest. And for you, dear readers, we could think of no better gift than 100 of the sexiest bikini photos that this year had to offer! We’ve got some of everybody, and we do mean everybody. There might even been one of you in there. We’ve got that many!

Of course this uber-gallery is presided over by Beyonce, who ruled over our 2012 Bikini Awards just like she does with the rest of the known universe. In fact, she was able to defy time and win the coveted award with pics that were (technically) from 2011. That’s the power of Queen Bey! In addition to her, our list is chock-full of other pop queens like Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Lady Gaga, and big-screen A-listers like Scarlett Johansson, Anne Hathaway and Jessica Alba. TV personalities Maria Menounos and Angela Simmons made a strong showing, too. We’ve also got shots from the usual suspects like reality star Kim Kardashian, never-shy Twitter mama Adrianne Curry and Coco, the Patron Saint of Donks.

Some of our very own VH1 stars like Mob Wives’ Drita D’Avanzo and Basketball Wives’ Evelyn Lozada put in an appearance, as did Hunger Games leading lady (and our personal favorite) Jennifer Lawrence. Professional hotties Kate Upton and Brooklyn Decker look straight out of the pages of Sports Illustrated, while Victoria’s Secret Angels Miranda Kerr, Heidi Klum and Adriana Lima are simply heavenly.

So tear off the wrapping paper and dive in to our terrific 2012 retrospective of everyone’s favorite two-piece. Happy Holidays!

Anne Hathaway’s Shame Comment In Glamour One Of The 10 Most Honest Celeb Quotes About Weight

Anne Hathaway Talks Weight In Glamour

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.

“It Starts To Get Creepy”: Jennifer Lawrence Continues Her “Awfulness Of Fame” Truth Tour In EW

Jennifer Lawrence Laments Fame

We’re obviously huge fans of Jennifer Lawrence‘s candor; it makes us feel connected to her as a human being, rather than as a 30-foot-tall beautiful movie robot. It’s that same honesty, however, that has slowly convinced us that being famous is a lot more horrible than most actors are letting on. “I’m different. It’s exciting for about five minutes — like walking through a restaurant and hearing people say your name to each other. After a while it starts to get creepy and scary and you feel cynical and now I do this thing where I’ve got this tunnel vision where I only see people that I recognize,” the Silver Linings Playbook star told Entertainment Weekly. “I always imagined I would stay the exact same and I would be just as happy. And I’m not.” Yikes! Of course, this is just the latest stop on JLaw’s The Awfulness Of Fame Truth Tour. We were also horrified to hear…

Mags, Tridents, Sam Claflin In A Wetsuit: There’s A Lot Of Important Info In The New Catching Fire Pics

What’s that one scene in Catching Fire where Katniss looks like a total bad ass? Just kidding, that’s every single scene. Photos from the Hawaii set of the Hunger Games sequel are hitting the interwebs, so it only seems helpful to break down what America is looking at. Based on the fact our tributes are perched on top of individual platforms in the photos, it looks like we’re at the Quarter Quell. The Quarter Quell occurs at the very beginning of the 75th Hunger Games, the moment before the real good stuff starts. And the good stuff starts very quickly. Did you notice that somebody is wielding a trident?

Jennifer Lawrence, Magic Mike & More: 7 Unstuffy Things We Love About The Spirit Awards

Jennifer Lawrence and Matthew McConaughey are among the 2013 Spirit Awards nominees

We always approach awards season with a mix of fear, dread and excitement, and one of our earliest questions each time around is: Will this year’s nominees feel like homework or fun? The Film Independent Spirit Awards nominees, the first of many lists leading up to the Oscars, has just been released today, and if this is a sign of thing to come, the answer is “fun.” We certainly haven’t seen all of the nominees yet, and by its nature, this is an awards show that often contains a number of obscure titles and actors, but it looks like the indie world is also on board with some of the crowd-pleasers we’ve fallen in love with this year: Among the Best Feature nominees are Silver Linings Playbook, Moonrise Kingdom and Beasts of the Southern Wild. Beasts‘ remarkable breakout star, 8-year-old Quvenzhane Wallis, roared her way to a Best Female Lead nod, along with Silver LiningsJennifer Lawrence. We’re rooting for Best First Feature to go to Perks of Being a Wallflower’s Stephen Chbosky and his producers. Twenty-nine-year old Zoe Kazan, who wrote and starred in Ruby Sparks, is the sole girl at the Screenplay party. But perhaps the best surprise of all is in the Supporting Male category, where Matthew McConaughey is nominated for playing strip-club owner Dallas in Magic Mike. Take that, everyone who thinks independent film is all about quietly contemplating the grass grow and talking in funny accents.

Jennifer Lawrence Spends Thanksgiving Weekend Beach-Side In Hawaii

Jennifer Lawrence vacations in Hawaii

Jennifer Lawrence has been in Maui, Hawaii filming the next Hunger Games installment, Catching Fire and sadly wasn’t able to return to her hometown of Louisville for the Thanksgiving  holiday. But luckily her family came to her, with her mother, father and brother joining her out on the beaches for the weekend! “My dad won’t have a deep fryer so I don’t know what he’s going to do,” she jokingly told E! News.

She was also without her boyfriend Nick Hoult for the holiday, which must have been a bummer. But still, compared to the brawl at Halle Berry’s house, and Lady Gaga’s home getting invaded by fans, we’d say that Jennifer won out for the better celeb Turkey Day. The gorgeous 22-year old actress gave one more thing to be thankful for this year as she hit the sand in a bikini top and colorful skirt! Head on down to the gallery below for more!

Jennifer Lawrence Tells Leno Of Her Love For Honey Boo Boo, Deep-Fried Cheese Steak, Old Strippers

When we first saw an excerpt of Jennifer Lawrence on The Tonight Show, it was all about her “Fat Witch” Halloween costume, and we loved it. But then we saw the whole thing and realized that is the mere tip of the iceberg of the awesomeness that was this interview. We already knew the Catching Fire star loves eating Cheetos with her great boyfriend Nicholas Hoult and doesn’t care that she’s not twig-skinny like most Hollywood stars, but here are new things we learned about the endearingly normal, self-deprecating star as she promoted the Silver Linings Playbook last night.

  • She got into a car wreck a couple of weeks ago because she mistook a breast cancer parade for a Honey Boo Boo parade while driving home from the Catching Fire set in Georgia. “It said ‘boobs’ on the [sign] but I thought it was saying Boo Boo,” she explained of how she rear-ended someone. She had to tell the person she ran into, “I’m sorry that I hit your family. I thought I saw Honey Boo Boo. Please forgive me.”
  • On another Georgia adventure, she found herself at a “dive bar with senior citizen strippers,” getting a lap dance from an aggressive Bo Peep, who warned her not to touch her when she bent down, and “then she inserted her breast into my mouth.” Jen still tipped her, though.

Jennifer Lawrence Thinks It’s “Funny” She Has An “Overwhelming Career” When She Wanted Kids

Oh Jennifer Lawrence. We hope you were just being insane in your new Daily Beast interview, and not preternaturally self-aware like you almost always are. In her new interview, the Silver Linings Playbook actress talked to the site about the onslaught of professional success she’s had over the past couple years. “It’s so weird for a 22-year-old to say it. I do feel like the reason I was put on this Earth is to be a mother, which is why it’s funny for me to end up with such an overwhelming career,” she muses. “Ever since I was a baby, I was always playing house.” Oh, but can’t you have both, girl? We suggest you just print money until you’re 30, then quit Hollywood when you’re a millionaire. Then you can chill out on your sprawling Montana compound with your kids, watching Reba DVDs and eating eggplant parm until your pajama jeans explode at the seams. That’s what’s on our vision board at least!

Jennifer’s desire to live a creatively fulfilling yet paparazzi-free existence was so strong, she actually considered turning down The Hunger Games. Until her mom pointed out how absurd she was being, of course. “I had chosen my path. I was going to be the indie actor. I was going to drive my kids in a minivan and have a normal life,” Jennifer explains. “I knew if I said yes to this, it would change my life. I wasn’t sure if I was ready.” Oh god…that sounds so self-aware. If Academy Award-nominated 22-year-olds are worried about having it all, what should the rest of us do? Panic? Well, too late, that’s what we’re going with.

“In Hollywood, I’m Obese”: Why Jennifer Lawrence’s Weight Comments Are Good For Everyone

Jennifer Lawrence Says She's "Obese" By Hollywood Standards

Oh, did you guys ever notice that Academy Award-nominated actress Jennifer Lawrence is clinically obese? Oh no, because only a total moron would think that? Clearly you are not a film executive! “I eat like a caveman, I’ll be the only actress who doesn’t have anorexia rumors,” the Hunger Games star says in her new Elle interview. “In Hollywood, I’m obese. I’m considered a fat actress, I’m Val Kilmer in that one picture on the beach.” While some people might take umbrage with a thin, smoking hot 22-year-old claiming to be obese by anyone‘s definition of the word, we think it’s great. It’s not only great, in fact. It’s necessary.

You might recall back in April, when some critics were ragging on Jen’s size as unbelievably large and well-fed for a Panem resident. Lawrence allegedly scoffed it off, but apparently this has become a running theme in her rise to stardom. Personally, we’re glad Jennifer Lawrence has been consistently real with us with regards to how Hollywood perceives her…because it reminds us how totally divorced from reality Hollywood standards can be. If conventionally thin and attractive Jennifer Lawrence is obese, then clearly it’s the system that’s screwed up, not any one individual’s weight. If Jennifer Lawrence is “obese,” then the center cannot hold, people!

Jennifer Lawrence Talks About Adorkable Relationship With BF Nicholas Hoult To Elle

Jennifer Lawrence December Elle Cover

So, Warm Bodies, the upcoming Summit movie based on the novel by Isaac Marion, starring Nicholas Hoult is something we just know we’re going to obsess over. By that, we mean we’re going to obsess about him. Jennifer Lawrence just got there a lot quicker than us, considering he’s her boyfriend. Smart girl! That’s how she won the Hunger Games. Because she has the brains and she’s gorgeous, as is most evident from her December cover for Elle. That gorgeous white stretch jersey dress is by Balenciaga by Nicolas Ghesquière, and we fall all nostalgic already since Nico just left the company! We also felt all mushy and warm as Jennifer talked about her relationship with Hoult because it’s so cute, normal and adorkable. They sound like the sort of couple that could totally vegetate with each other in sweatpants and zero makeup (for her, obvs), and we know that’s love. “[My boyfriend] is honestly my best friend, and hopefully I’m his best friend too. He’s my favorite person to be around and makes me laugh harder than anybody, ” she says. See what we mean? It gets even better as she added, “We can eat Cheetos and watch beach volleyball and we turn into two perverted Homer Simpsons, like, ‘Oh, she’s got a nice a—.’ I never thought we’d have such different opinions on a—s.” It’s official now … we’re in love with them!
