What does Alec Baldwin think of Shia LaBeouf: theater expert? And who scored the most nominations for the MTV Movie Awards? The answers to this, and more are in today’s Last Lap…
It’s pretty terrifying interviewing huge celebrities, especially when they’re really hot. And they don’t come hotter than Mila Kunis! So we really feel for nervous BBC Radio broadcaster Chris Stark, who admitted to feeling terrified when sitting down to interview Mila at a junket for Oz The Great And Powerful.
Refresh your memory about Oz: The Great And Powerful here. Now you see why we were so excited when we saw the trailer? The Sam Raimi directed film is a prequel to The Wizard Of Oz with James Franco starring as Oscar Diggs, a magician from Kansas who is blown away to Oz by a tornado. Theodora, Evanora and Glinda are the witches played by Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz and Michelle Williams respectively, and they have the most lush, incredible wardrobes in the movie. We were hoping they wouldn’t let us down at the premiere, and they didn’t, luckily. The official world screening was held at El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood yesterday and all three ladies stepped up sartorially. Michelle — seen on the left — wore a white Prada dress with black floral embellishments dusted over it, with mile-high slits up the side. Rachel wore a minimal, but bright vermilion Victoria Beckham gown with Jimmy Choos. But it was Mila who really looked exquisite in a taupe Dolce & Gabbana dress with huge ruby dangling earrings by Sutra and silver Christian Louboutin peep-toes. Not witchy in the slightest, but bewitching, yes.

We’re not exactly sure how divorces usually work (We gave up on our law degree to blog about Miley Cyrus’ dogs!), but a year seems like more than enough time for Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore to conclude that they really don’t want to be married to each other any more. Really. Us Weekly reports that Ashton filed divorce papers with the L.A. Superior Court today, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split. We’re not saying his move has anything to do with his months-long relationship with Mila Kunis, but you know how it is: every woman dreams of one day dating a guy who isn’t currently married to Demi Moore. Blame all those Disney princess movies!
According to TMZ, Kutcher isn’t requesting spousal support, and asked that Moore be denied any requests to get spousal support in return. (We imagine that isn’t such an unusual request when both parties are millionaires.) The other reason we’re psyched to see Demi and Ashton’s six-year marriage come to an official close? It’s been almost a year since Moore entered rehab after what seemed to be a drug-related medical emergency. Now she’s looking healthy, hanging out with Lenny Kravitz and kissing 26-year-old art dealers. Seems like the right time to turn the page.

Just so we’re clear: the only reason anyone would call anyone an ethnic slur is because they are a drooling moron. Beyond that, however, there has to be some kind of reason as to why Ukrainian politician Igor Miroshnichenko would call Ukrainian-born Mila Kunis an anti-Semitic slur. On Facebook. Where other people can read it. According to TMZ, Miroshnichenko wrote that the Ted actress is not a real Ukrainian because she is a “zhydovka,” which is apparently a derogatory slur about a Jewish woman. So again…what? Why would Mila Kunis even come up as a target of hate speech? We go days, sometimes weeks, without thinking of Mila Kunis, and when we do, it almost never ends in a Facebook rant!
Even stranger still is the response of the Ukrainian government after Jewish organizations like the U.S.’s Simon Wiesenthal Center (naturally) took umbrage at the politician’s slur. Apparently the government claimed that there is no scandal because the term “appears in the Ukrainian dictionary as a term for a Jew that isn’t necessarily a slur.” Yeah…we’re pretty sure any word that finishes the thought “you are not a real Ukrainian because you are a ____” is officially an insult. Plus there are plenty of antique race-related words in the English dictionary we would never utter aloud, let alone post it to any social media platform. So we’re back to square one. Any Ukrainian readers want to offer any insight into this hot mess? After you’re done heaving an exhausted sigh?

Are you the sort of person who scrolls down to see what shoes celebrities are wearing when you see an outfit that interests you? Then this is the list for you. Even if you aren’t a shoe fanatic, this is still a fun exercise, to be honest. We’ve compiled together our list of the top 25 most drool-worthy heels, platforms and boots spotted on celebrities in 2012. And to make it even more interesting, when you visit the gallery below, we’ve put pictures of the shoes first, with the celebrity reveal right after, so you can have a go at guessing who the gorgeous heel, platform, pump, bootie or boot belongs to! The caption on each celebrity reveal will also tell you what brand the shoe is and where and when it was worn. All our favourite celebrities are in there: Beyonce, Kristen Stewart, Emma Stone and a whole host more.
A couple of spoilers, though. We won’t tell you the color of the shoes so you can still have a guess when you look through the pictures. We adore Mila Kunis‘ Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle’ and Miley Cyrus‘ Jimmy Choo ‘Tippi” pumps, respectively. Bella Thorne‘s Miu Miu platform booties are to die for, as are Rooney Mara‘s YSL ‘Tribtoo’ slingbacks. Have a blast figuring out which is which. We wish you a happy and well-heeled rest of 2012!

Excuse us while we let out a prolonged “duh!” Hunger Games franchise queen Jennifer Lawrence is beloved all over the world for her acting skillz, refreshing real talk and (of course) her gorgeous style and super hot bod. And now AskMen.com just bestowed upon her the title of Most Desirable Woman of the Year! 2012 has definitely been the year of the J-Law, since her record busting turn as Katniss Everdeen earlier this year. She’s covered W, Vogue and Elle magazine, become the new face of Dior, and most recently switched it up with the indie cred-getting Playbook Silver Linings. That’s a hell of a year for anyone, let alone a 22 year old!
And now she can add Most Desirable Woman to her impressive trophy stash! It’s a pretty serious honor when you consider her stiff competition, including the likes of pop goddess Rihanna, Esquire’s respective sexiest women of the year Miranda Kerr and Mila Kunis, runner/YouTube celebrity Michelle Jenneke and SI covergirl Kate Upton. Head on down to the gallery below to see how they ranked, and which other lovely ladies made it into the top 10.
We’d like to start by saying that we love our work. We just love pizza, ice cream cakes and those Girl Scout cookies with the coconut a hell of a lot more. And that’s the thing that separates us from the truly great actors. Well, that and a zillion KFC buckets worth of talent! Uber-dedicated movie stars will sometimes go the extra mile and put their bodies through insane physical transformations that make us sore just watching them up there on the big screen. Many hit the gym ruthlessly to purge every excess pound from their body and slim down, while some (occasionally) take a few weeks to pack on the pounds for a role. If it were us we’d choose the pound-packing parts exclusively, but hey!
More recently Anne Hathaway, Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto took the tougher route and each shed an unbelievable amount of weight for their respective roles. Anne famously lost 25 pounds for the part of Fantine in the big screen adaptation of Les Miserables by eating two thin squares of oatmeal paste a day! We imagine that includes no dessert? McConaughey jettisoned his Magic Mike six-pack to play the HIV positive lead in Dallas Buyers Club, and his whopping 40 pound weight loss has lead some to wonder if he’s going too far. It’s got to be rough, but they certainly aren’t the first famous folks to go through such a dramatic body overhaul before going in front of the camera. Head on down to the gallery below for more thespians who took their bodies to crazy town, all in the name of their art. Sit down with a nice bag of chips and enjoy!

Long Live The Queen! U.K. ‘s Esquire magazine has just crowned Miranda Kerr as their sexiest woman alive, and looking at the scandalously sexy cover, it’s not hard to see why. Kerr appears even more stripped down than her U.S. Esquire counterpart Mila Kunis, who earned her title a few weeks back. At least Mila had some pants, but the Victoria’s Secret angel graces her cover wearing nothing but a pair of panties! This is the woman who can look sexy while giving Terry Richardson a butt shot, so needless to say, the pic is pretty damn hot.
“We always have so much fun when we shoot,” she says in the accompanying interview. “My temperament’s flirtatious, so it’s second nature to me. I don’t really think of rules, as long as it’s classy and timeless and it’s something I wouldn’t be ashamed of. I believe in celebrating the female figure and embracing what we’ve been given.”
The real question is: who is actually the sexiest woman alive? There can be only one, right? It’s a close race, and we definitely think Miranda gives Mila a run for her money. Check out the gallery below to see what we mean, and then cast your vote in our poll!
