Rebel Wilson Was A Great Host, But Can She Please Cut The Fat Jokes

Rebel Wilson Was A Great Host, But Can She Please Cut The Fat Jokes

I absolutely love Rebel Wilson so I was thrilled when I heard she would be hosting the MTV Movie Awards. It has been seven long years since a woman has hosted and Rebel is the comedy girl of the moment. Notice I how I haven’t once mentioned her weight. That is because I don’t need to. If Rebel weighed 100 pounds I would still think she was quite funny (that Channing Tatum butt pillow was hilarious) but Rebel seems to not only embrace the fat jokes but promote them and she needs to stop.

Vanessa Hudgens: ‘It Was The Worst Moment Of My Career’

Vanessa Hudgens: 'It Was The Worst Moment Of My Career'

In the brave new world of smartphone culture, it can seem like there’s a celebrity nude-photo scandal every other day. Scarlett Johansson, Blake Lively, Prince Harry … the list goes on. We’ve ogled their naughty bits and moved on. It’s easy to forget that for the celebrities themselves, these can be pretty miserable experiences. (Unless you’re a cynic who thinks they orchestrated the scandal themselves, of course.) Vanessa Hudgens, the formerly squeaky-clean Disney actress, opens up to Paper magazine this month about her own photo scandal. More »

Five Quotes That Will Make You Love Connie Britton More Than You Already Do

Five Quotes That Will Make You Love Connie Britton More Than You Already Do

If you have watched Friday Night Lights and/or Nashville, you do not need a primer on why Connie Britton is the best. She plays characters who are strong, confident, warm, charismatic, and smart, and is, I have always imagined, all of these things herself. A fantastic new profile of Britton in the New York Times magazine proves it, and includes some true gems of wisdom on Britton’s unorthodox and brilliant career, which has only become stronger since she turned 40, defying Hollywood stereotypes.

Anne Hathaway Has Now Made England Hate Her, Too

Anne Hathaway Has Now Made England Hate Her, Too

Poor Anne Hathaway. I want to like her, I really do. She’s talented, gorgeous, open, a sincere supporter of some great causes, and she seems pretty down-to-earth despite being an A-list movie star. And yet. Her awards-acceptance tour for her dazzling role in Les Miserables has turned into a round-the-world carnival of irritation. Her latest forehead-slapping acceptance speech came at the BAFTA awards in England. The Daily Mail‘s headline doesn’t mince words: “Anne Hathaway becomes a laughing stock.”

A Line By Line Analysis Of Jodie Foster’s Golden Globes Speech

A Line By Line Analysis Of Jodie Fosterâs Golden Globes Speech

The Golden Globes were Sunday and usually we’re not ones to brag, but we were right about a lot of things. Some host-on-Clooney action? Check. A Clinton appearance? Check. A Sarah Palin impression? Almost! Tina and Amy were unsurprisingly amazing as hosts but the real scene-stealer was Jodie Foster’s rambling acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille award for lifetime achievement in film. It was witty; it was emotional; it was a climatic coming out (…we think?). We just had to take a closer look at it.
