It’s 4/20, so you know what that means. Lots of weed smoking for those who partake. While we don’t encourage drug use, marijuana is creeping ever closer to being legalized all over the place, so there’s no harm in celebrating the many celebrities who have taken a toke in their everyday lives, or on the big screen.
If there’s one thing fans know about game show host and comedian, Billy Eichner, it’s that he’s a huge Meryl Streep fan. He’s gone on record about just how amazing she is, sat two feet away from her when she was guest on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and even getting into a screaming match with one of his contestants over who was better: Meryl Streep or Glenn Close. Needless to say, that kind of fandom means Eichner must know a lot about the Oscar-winning actress. While at PaleyFest 2014 for the Parks and Recreation chat with Retta and his other co-stars, VH1′s Kate Spencer put Eichner on the spot in what we like to to call “Billy on the Streep.”
Many of us worship celebrities for their tremendous acting capabilities, endearing personalities and their flawless good looks, but is there more to idolize? Of course! So many celebrities boast more than beautiful faces…they boast beautiful hearts. And yes, we’re getting mushy on you. Nothing makes a star more attractive than a generous soul, and that doesn’t only include the infamously giving couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. From Taylor Swift‘s $100,000 birthday donation to Meryl Streep‘s $2 million giveaway, many celebs have more than talent and charm to garner respect from the masses.
The battle between Gwyneth Paltrow and Vanity Fair continues to heat up. While The Gossip Table reported that the actress skipped the magazine’s annual post-Oscars bash, she wasn’t the only to opt out of the event. Paltrow’s publicist pulled his long-reaching strings and convinced Meryl Streep and Sandra Bullock to pass on the event. That’s right, GOOP’s got power.
The 2014 Oscars happened two days ago and we’re already over them. Who cares if American Hustle was shut out or if Leonardo DiCaprio deserved to win Best Actor over Matthew McConaughey? All we want to know is which films and which of our favorite actors are going to be in the running for an Oscar next year. Believe it or not, stars like Meryl Streep, Emma Stone and Benedict Cumberbatch are already in the 2015 Oscar race. Read more…
Meryl Streep is the greatest actress who has ever lived. No, we’re not arguing about it. She simply is. Streep has been nominated for 18 Academy Awards (including her nomination this year for Best Actress for her work in August: Osage County) and has taken the award home thrice. She can play anything from a terrifying matriarch to the steely Prime Minister of Great Britain and make us believe it. Where does her power come from? Well, it doesn’t hurt that Meryl Streep is a total boss bitch in real life.
During this awards season, Meryl Streep has been getting accolades for her role in August: Osage County. The formidable actress stars as Violet Weston, a pill-popping dame whose snide remarks have obviously led to estranged relationships with her children. We love to think of the elder women in our families as wise and comforting, but when it comes to TV and film, we’ve seen female characters whose conniving ways have reverberated through different generations.
Yesterday marked the 10-year anniversary of the hit single “Stacy’s Mom” by Fountain’s of Wayne. We all remember those catchy lyrics and, of course, the infamous music video moment. It’s a bright sunny day and Stacy’s insanely hot mom emerges from a pool, wearing a skimpy red bikini and drenched with water. Yeah, she was pretty smokin’. Poor Stacy didn’t even get a second glance. In honor of this favorite, we’ve chosen 10 hot moms from the celeb-sphere who have got it going on, even more than their daughters. We know it might be wrong, but… we’ve done it anyway.
