Being named Miss Golden Globe (or the rare Mr.) must be a strange honor — as far as we can tell, it’s basically the Hollywood Foreign Press saying, “Hey, you’re a young, attractive daughter/son of someone famous. Will you please wear this fancy gown and help hand out awards so we don’t have to hire a model?” On the other hand, it’s also sometimes a nice way for a PYT to get his/her name and face out there. Clint Eastwood’s daughter Francesca was named Miss Golden Globe for 2013 yesterday, and she’ll actually be following in the footsteps of her older sister Kathryn (2005), which is a first. What we’re really wondering is whether the actress — who’s now known mostly due to her mom’s reality show, Mrs. Eastwood and Company — will also be following in the footsteps of the Globe honorees who did make a name for themselves, from The Beverly Hillbillies‘ Donna Douglas and Dynasty‘s Linda Evans to Melanie Griffith and her daughter, Dakota Johnson (Ben and Kate). Check out the ladies (and man) who turned this into a golden (sorry) opportunity:

Look, we don’t know the ins and outs of Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas‘ relationship. We don’t have the time, resources or high-powered binoculars necessary to verify whether rumors of their impending break-up are true. We do know, however, that video of Antonio dancing with Indian actress Mallika Sherawat at Cannes this year proves absolutely nothing about the stability of their union. Take a look at the video after the jump if you don’t believe us: there is clearly plenty of room for the Holy Spirit between those two! If anything, the video is a testament to Antonio’s commitment to Melanie. If he wasn’t invested in keeping their love alive, Banderas could be booty-dancing up a storm! We’ll gladly offer our booties up as a test if you want, Melanie!
Color us dubious, but we’ve been hearing break-up rumors about these two for years, or at least since Griffith did that stint in rehab in 2009. “They seem absolutely fine. Honestly, they seem happy,” a source told People last night. The couple has almost made it to 16 years of marriage, which is, like, 3,000 years in Hollywood marriage time. As such, we…really, really don’t want these rumors to be true. We want Melanie and Antonio to make it into our Celebrity Couples Going Strong After More Than 20 Years list. You can do it, you two! Just check out your fellow old marrieds for strength!
Coachella went down for its second weekend in Indio, California, and as expected, the stars flocked to it again. Last weekend had its fair share of controversies attached to it. Not to the festival per se, but to the many celebrities who attended. What was Lindsay Lohan doing there against her judge’s advice? Who was the mystery dude Emma Watson was with? And what exactly was Rihanna smoking? So many questions. No answers just yet. But in contrast, this last weekend of Coachella seemed easy-peasy.
Some celebrities, like Dita von Teese and Busy Philipps, showed up on both Saturday and Sunday. Dita was also spotted hanging out with pal Kelly Osbourne, and her purple hair. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was seen rocking out to Florence Welch. Twilighters Elizabeth Reaser and Nikki Reed (with hubby Paul McDonald) were there, as well as ex-Twilighter Rachelle Lefevre. Joe Jonas hatted up, while Joe Manganiello (and yay for this) took his shirt off. But the cutest photographs by far, were of Alicia Silverstone with her son Bear Blu. Top marks for the baby-size noise-cancelling headphones! Look out for all of the action in our gallery.

While we totally enjoyed the silly way Angelina Jolie insisted on posing with her leg at last night’s Oscars — and the Twitter stir her leg caused all through the night — many of you were more alarmed than amused. Is she really able to stand and walk around on legs skinnier than our arms? Did she give all her food away to war refugees? We’re not completely sure of the normally slender actress was actually thinner than usual last night, or if we’re just not used to seeing that much of her bared leg against the stark contrast of all that Versace velvet. But yeah, there were a bunch of actresses we’d like to feed sandwiches to right about now. Somehow, we doubt they partook in that popcorn that was passed out in the Kodak, much less the 3-D desserts Wolfgang Puck cooked up for the Governor’s Ball. Melanie Griffith’s face was downright sickly looking, and a close inspection of Jane Seymour’s decolletage is not for the weak of heart. There are others whose razor-sharp shoulders and collar bones we’re used to — like Rooney Mara’s — but that didn’t stop us from wishing we could show up, grandma style, and shove plates of food in their faces. Awards season is over ladies, please feast to your heart’s content!

We love hearing gossip about who turns down roles in Hollywood (Fun fact:Ã‚Â Leonardo DiCaprio turned down Spiderman and Anakin Skywalker! Because he can!) and, on the flip side, who begs to get cast in other projects. Even though Dancing With The Stars is certainly no blockbuster movie and the celebs on it aren’t usually super famous, it’s still fascinating to see who the show reaches out to to participate.
DWTS is insanely popular, but let’s face it, to be on it you must be humble enough to concede that you are not, in fact, an A-lister. And therefore, to be considered for the show might just feel insulting, like your star is either slowly on the rise or, worse, on the decline. Which is probably whyÃ‚Â Tim Allen and Suzanne Somers have passed when asked. But the show also has the ability to turn a public figure into a clown and mock them. That’s probably our guess as to why conservative crazy ladyÃ‚Â Ann Coulter, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Erin Brockovich, and Richard Branson have all said no. Most recently, Kirstie Alley rejected the Ã‚Â show, as did Joel McHale and Drew Carey. Maybe asking Joel was their way of gaining favor on The Soup to not be mocked so much?
And as for the stars begging to dance? Well, we already know Octomom’s dancing pleas fell on deaf ears, but allegedly, Melanie Griffith has asked producers for the chance to appear on the show every season, and every season they politely decline. Come on, DWTS. Give Working Girl a chance! She has a head for business and a bod for sin, surely that counts for something. Just think of all the credibility a Banderas in the audience will lend you!
Antonio Banderas dispelled rumors that he gave wife Melanie Griffith an ultimatum to sober up or else he would divorce her. Banderas gave an interview to Ellen DeGeneres which airs on her show today, and discusses that he loves his wife and would never turn his back on her during a rough patch like the one she’s currently going through.
Though Griffith has has a history of substance abuse problems, Banderas explains that the latest stint in rehab is a result of her use of painkillers to get through a knee injury she received after a skiing accident. Banderas told DeGeneres that contrary to the rumors, rehab was Griffith’s idea. “In March, she came to me and said, ‘I’m feeling a little bit weak in my determination for this…so I just thought to go to rehabilitation by myself.’ So the whole entire family is supporting her, and I am supporting her, and at this particular time more than ever. I’m very proud of her.”
Banderas’ support for Griffith is unrelenting and he credits not only the support of their family, but therapy and the “invisible heroes” of AA for helping with their situation. The couple has been married since 1996. [Photo: GettyImages]
Melanie Griffith has checked into a rehab center again, to deal with undisclosed issues. The Hollywood star, who has suffered for years with addiction problems to alcohol and then prescription drugs, is reportedly staying at the Cirque Lodge in Utah.
“She is there to reinforce her commitment to stay healthy. This is part of a routine plan that was designed between her and her doctors years ago,” says her rep Robin Baum. However, other conflicting reports claim this is in a bid to save her marriage to Spanish star Antonio Banderas. Whatever the truth, we hope she gets well soon, and continues in our dream fantasy of making Working Girl 2. Hey, it could happen. [Photo: FilmMagic]
It seems some celebs just can’t get enough of the poofy pout. Brittany Murphy, Heidi Montag, Jenna Jameson, and Lisa Rinna‘s kissers have been pumped to capacity. Just yesterday, Lindsay Lohan went out on the town in NYC with a suspiciously bloated upper lip. Whether she and countless others have endured lip injections, implants, or claim to have just applied Lip Venom, many already-beautiful stars lust for that Jolie volume. The results are more often fishy than foxy. See what we mean below.
