Halle Berry’s advice to keep the girls perky: ‘Always wear a bra, even to bed’

wenn21834186

Halle Berry has some diverse side projects, most of which I don’t keep up with. Sorry! I know she has a perfume line, and now I know she’s relaunching an older lingerie line, Scandale Paris. Halle gave an interview to Yahoo about her takeover of the 82-year-old lingerie line – apparently, she’s going to make it more affordable, but the bras and panties are still going to be good-quality. In this interview, she talks a lot about what her “French husband” Olivier Martinez taught her about dressing, plus some boob advice.

How her French husband changed her: “I have definitely changed as a result of being married to a French husband. French women would not put their sweats on and run out to the market. So I care more about what I wear out of the house, because if not, he calls me out on it. [French women] put a lot of energy into their outerwear, but also their underwear. They’re not going to get caught in an emergency room without being prepared.”

Her mother’s boob advice: “She said if I don’t want my boobs to hit my knees by the time I’m 30, always wear a bra, even to bed.”

She’s not using her sex symbol image to move bras: “I don’t think I’m using my sex symbol image, if that’s what you want to call it, to sell the line. I’m not the model, so no I’m not trying to use that part of me at all.”

Aging in Hollywood: “I think both actors and actresses face this. It’s not just women. As an actor you face having to age and redefine yourself. The roles you were able to play before, you can’t play anymore. So you have to adapt and play a different role. And as actresses, we need to accept that we’re not always going to be the sexy ingenue, but hopefully we get better with age.”

Whether Nahla has seen her movies: “She hasn’t seen any of my movies, so she doesn’t quite understand what I do for a living. The beauty of our lifestyle is my daughter doesn’t see me as any different than anyone else. I try very hard to be like other mothers.”

Gossip about her private life: “I’ve learned that I can’t care about what people say about me because caring is too stressful and too hurtful,” she says. “It’s all just fodder and nonsense,” before reconsidering that her new role as an executive might mean that ugly incidents like a 2012 fight between Martinez and Aubry might affect her bottom line. “It can start to matter and affect you when you think about being a brand. People want know that they can trust you. But I’m happy to say none of the negative things that come from those people hiding behind their computers — I call them the haters — have permeated me through my career.”

[From Yahoo]

I think it’s extremely cold to basically say that your husband isn’t going to physically assault your ex-boyfriend anymore because it will affect your business. Like, if Halle wasn’t trying to make herself into a household “brand,” then sh-t would still be going down with her custodial arrangement with Gabriel Aubry. That’s what she’s saying. I suppose that makes me a HATER.

As for the boob advice… I’ve heard that before. I feel like a lot of women of a certain age were told to do that, to wear a bra at all times, even while you’re sleeping. I HATE sleeping in bras, so that’s probably why my boobs don’t look as good as Halle’s.

Amal Clooney brings some glamour to her English wedding reception: fab or fug?

FFN_Clooney_Amal_FLYUK_102514_51567738

Amal Clooney brought the “gangster’s mistress” glamour to her second wedding celebration/reception in England on Saturday. As widely reported late last week, George Clooney, Amal and her parents did some sort of private celebration for about 90 guests at the Danesfield House Hotel in Marlow, England. I guess her parents sent out the invites? And George had to fly in from LA just for this. Amal and George’s honeymoon was pretty brief – they both went back to work quickly and it seems they’re already doing the separate-lives thing. It also seems like most of the guests were from Amal’s circle, her friends and family.

These are some pics from George and Amal’s entrance to the Danesfield House – the paps got shots of them in the car. As I said, I think Amal looks glamorous, but she is giving me an old-school gangster’s girlfriend vibe. I think it’s the hair, the strong makeup and the gold dress. Plus, I think she’s wearing a fur coat.

Meanwhile, Rande Gerber told People Magazine that Amal is perfect for George because of course. Amal is perfect. She’s self-confident without being conceited, she has a “devastating” sense of humor, she’s stylish, she has a law degree, she has great hair, she’s a loving aunt and marrying George Clooney was only a minor interruption from her brilliant legal career. It’s like Amal was built in a factory!

Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber spent a raucous three days in Italy celebrating George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin’s wedding. And by the end of it, they knew they were looking at a couple of soul mates.

“I’ve been friends with George probably half my life. And it’s just great that he found someone,” Gerber told PEOPLE Thursday at the opening of photographer Brian Bowen Smith’s first solo show in West Hollywood.

Gerber, 52, and Crawford, 48, married since 1998, looked like a couple of newlyweds themselves as they stole kisses on their way into the show. And Gerber – longtime BFFs with Clooney, and vacation neighbors in Mexico – also expounded on why he thinks Amal is so great for George.

“She’s really perfect for him,” he said. “She’s smart and she’s beautiful, engaging. She is, again … smart, but she doesn’t make you feel stupid! She’s a great girl, and together I think they can do some incredible things.”

[From People]

But is she “smart”? Yeah, I actually believe she IS a smart lady. Which makes me wonder what Amal and George will really have in common in the long run. George is “Hollywood smart,” meaning he’s smarter than the average movie star. But I do wonder if George is smart enough to keep up with Amal long-term.

Aaron Paul on Toys ‘R Us pulling Breaking Bad dolls: ‘Barbies are worse’

waltbb
For about 5 minutes, Toys R Us had some Breaking Bad action figures of Walt and Jesse et. al with hazmat suits and accessories like little baggies of blue meth. I was just about to buy them as a Christmas present for an adult BB lover. They look very detailed and would make great gifts. Then, some random person who goes by “Florida Mom” started a Change.org petition calling for the removal of the characters. The petition read, in part, “[Selling] a Breaking Bad doll, complete with a detachable sack of cash and a bag of meth, alongside children’s toys is a dangerous deviation from… family-friendly values.”

Seriously, you live in Florida and you think an action figure of a fictional drug lord character is a bad influence on your kid? (#nodisrespecttofloridians) What about Walking Dead action figures? (Ooh they have zombie Merle!) Those have actual zombies and freaking guns. What about toy guns? There are so many other toys to complain about and these are marketed to adults, not children.

Anyway Toys ‘R Us caved and pulled the action figures. Aaron Paul (Jesse Pinkman) took to twitter to point out the hypocrisy. Bryan Cranston (Walter White) was a bit more humorous about it. Here are some tweets from Aaron and Bryan:

Ooh Aaron referencing video games makes me remember one of my favorite Breaking Bad scenes. Spoilers if you’re still waiting to watch this show. (Just watch it already.) One of my favorite scenes/episodes is when Jesse, Mike and Gus Fring annihilate their entire Mexican competition by poisoning them at a party. Jesse was depressed prior to this and was spending his time playing first person shooter video games. Then, when he was confronted with real gunmen he had lighting fast reflexes that mirrored the game. That’s just a small example of the many clever and subtle plot twists in this show.

I digress, Toys ‘R Us needs to start selling these action figures again because they will probably sell out and I need an easy gift idea. The petition that Aaron links calls for Toys ‘R Us to continue selling collectible characters that are aimed at adults, and points out that these toys are in a separate section of the store and are not alongside toys for children. At the very least, they should sell them online. Nevermind, you can buy them on Amazon of course. Yeah bitch.

Parenthood Season 6 Episode 5: The Fluid Scale of Affection

Amber started feeling a new crush and young Max received advice from Adam on how to talk to a girl at his school on last night’s Parenthood Season 6 Episode 5.

How did those developments, and the many others Thursday, play out?

In typical fashion, it was a genuine mix of uplifting and poignant tales.

Max’s crush on Dylan, one of the core stories this week, is just the latest part of a story that has played out as long as you watch Parenthood online.

How do parents reconcile their own dreams, and heartbreak, as they help raise and thus give so much of their own lives to those of their children?

Kristina and Adam’s responses to Max’s affection for Dylan is a prime example of this. He’s all for it, she’s much more reserved. Both are clearly moved.

In the end, the parents meet in the middle, urging Max to focus on his best self in a story that simultaneously manages to make you smile and almost cry.

Perhaps they should help out Crosby with this same approach.

The youngest of Zeek’s four kids is off the rails to the point where Jasmine physically locks up motorcycle so he can’t drive it around aimlessly.

Crosby is a total mess, yet the reasons why are not entirely clear.

Perhaps that realization was ironically made clear this week, as no one can quite figure this guy out. Often, this is the case in real life, but on TV?

Only on Parenthood would they attempt some of these things.

Now that Amber has decided to keep the baby, she’s going through a pretty serious transition as well, and it’s going to change the way she does everything.

Case in point? She likes a guy and doesn’t know whether or not to tell him she’s pregnant right away. Once again, Drew was the star of this storyline.

Encouraging her to be up front, then being there for her when it didn’t go well, Drew’s bond with Amber – strengthened by her pregnancy – is wonderful to watch.

Other relationships aren’t thriving as much as crumbling.

As Julia is dating Chris, she wonders how (if at all) she should integrate him into her kids’ lives, and when it does happen by happenstance, Joel is there.

Once again in typical Parenthood fashion, we have a situation where it’s impossible to truly hate, or unabashedly side with, Team Joel or Team Julia.

Isn’t that remarkably realistic in a sense?

So many things in life are not black and white. Parenthood is one of the few shows willing to give its stories the time and depth to venture into that gray area.

Celebs defend Renee Zellweger: is it ‘mean’ to point out that she looks way different?

reneeba
As you know by now, Renee Zellweger had some major work done about a year ago. She emerged at an event this weekend looking much different than we’re used to, and so people naturally noticed. Renee commented on her changed appearance and she made it worse, in my opinion. Renee decried the “folks who come digging around for some nefarious truth” and she attributed her new look to aging and “living a different, happy, more fulfilling life.” Buried in a lot of BS, there was a hint that maybe she’d visited a dermatologist/surgeon. She said “I was depleted and made bad choices about how to conceal the exhaustion,” which to me sounds like she had something done and regrets it. That’s all she said about it, though.

Now celebrities have weighed in on Renee, and they’re saying “leave her alone” pretty much. Which… I mean that’s the response to a lot of a gossip stories. E! Online has more, and credit to them for this story idea:

Today show co-host Kathie Lee Gifford defended the actress Wednesday morning on-air. “Let her be and don’t be so mean spirited about her choices,” she explained. “I think she looks beautiful.”

The View co-host Nicole Wallace also thinks the chatter can open up a whole separate conversation on women and beauty. “I think the reality is that there is an unending pressure on women to look forever young,” she shared.

[From E! Online]

E! also posted some tweets from celebrities about Renee’s change and I’m cribbing a few of them here:

Of course Renee can do whatever she wants, and I think she looks beautiful now as she did before. In fact I did say that she looked beautiful in our last story, just nothing like herself. It’s human nature to notice when someone’s appearance changes so much they’re barely recognizable. There are a small minority of people (trolls) who are being nasty about it, but that’s not the larger conversation. If an acquaintance did this in my small town, you could bet that my friends and neighbors would be talking about it. And if that acquaintance told everyone she got an eye or face lift, it’s likely that the gossip would die down and we would be like “good for her.” Renee is famous and people have noticed that she doesn’t look like herself. I think that’s par for the course and I don’t find it sexist or mean spirited, but I gossip for a living. My standards differ from the average person.

There’s a bigger conversation about the pressure women feel about aging in our society, and how that leads many of us to have surgery and injectibles. It’s still a choice that people make, and it’s something that can be done subtly as well. I’m personally not ruling it out, but that doesn’t mean I don’t find it scary.

Renee Zellweger “I’m Glad You Think I Look Different”

renee zellweger (1)The internet was abuzz yesterday when pictures of Renee Zellweger at the ELLE Women in Hollywood Awards surfaced. Everyone was talking about how, well, different she looked. I dug up some older pics from 2013 and 2012 and even a few from 2002, but Renee herself spoke out about all of the speculation on her appearance. RELATED: Renee Zellweger hangs out with her boyfriend.

Renee told People (which has a picture of her at the event: I don’t have the rights to those pictures):

I’m glad folks think I look different! I’m living a different, happy, more fulfilling life, and I’m thrilled that perhaps it shows.”

She referred to all the internet chatter as “silly” but decided to speak out about it anyway because:

[I]t seems the folks who come digging around for some nefarious truth which doesn’t exist won’t get off my porch until I answer the door.
“My friends say that I look peaceful. I am healthy. For a long time I wasn’t doing such a good job with that. I took on a schedule that is not realistically sustainable and didn’t allow for taking care of myself. Rather than stopping to recalibrate, I kept running until I was depleted and made bad choices about how to conceal the exhaustion. I was aware of the chaos and finally chose different things.
“I did work that allows for being still, making a home, loving someone, learning new things, growing as a creative person and finally growing into myself.
“People don’t know me in my 40s. People don’t know me [as] healthy for a while. Perhaps I look different. Who doesn’t as they get older?! Ha. But I am different. I’m happy.”

I think the big difference, especially if you compare the 2002 pic (upper right corner) with the 2014 pic (upper left corner) is that Renee’s face looks a little slimmer. That’s a natural part of aging, though: we lose those rounded cheeks that we had from childhood. I, for one, think she looks amazing! Her healthy and happy lifestyle certainly shows. You can click on each photo in the gallery to see when it was taken, if you’re curious.

Duggar Family Secrets Revealed: What Goes on Behind Closed Doors?

The Duggars of TLC’s 19 Kids & Counting fame seems like the picture perfect family in many respects, but what goes on behind closed doors?

A lot of things you might not expect, according to a surprising new expose.

Dates Without Chaperones


The Duggar parents often accompany their children on dates in order to maintain their “accountability” and “keep things from going in the wrong direction,” per Jim Bob. The girls are fine with this, as being alone with men puts them in grave “moral danger.” When the parents aren’t available, their older siblings will often tag along, making every date a group date and a family affair.

With 19 children to raise (or at least 15 now that a handful have reached adulthood), one would think Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar would be exhausted, 24/7.

Not necessarily, though. Their maligned ace in the hole: Jana Duggar!

It’s the put-upon eldest daughter who’s exhausted from a lifetime of raising the kids, and some of the other older siblings, who do most of the babysitting.

“Jim Bob and Michelle have what they call the ‘buddy system,’” an insider says of the household’s inner workings, and that system works as follows:

“Each of the older kids gets paired with a younger kid that they have to watch over and help out. It’s great for them, because it’s like they have a set of free nannies.

The kids, however, “don’t really have a choice” in the matter.

Jana Duggar, as a 23-year-old, often gets saddled with even more responsibility, as she’s managing the managers as well as her own little buddy.

“Jim Bob and Michelle have been known to go out on date night and leave all the kids at home with Jana in charge of the house,” the source says.

“They’ll be gone for hours, during which she has to watch over everyone. She does it with a smile, but it’s sad. It’s not like she ever gets a date night!”

She’s not even allowed to date, according to some reports.

There’s only so much one beautiful young woman can do, too, because of the sheer numbers involved. When the parents are away, the kids run wild.

If Jana can’t whip something up for all of them to eat, which is a tall order, “they’ve been known to just have snacks like pretzel sticks and yogurt for dinner.”

“They bounce off the walls!” the source claims. “They are allowed to ride their scooters in the house, and even put the youngest kids in a wagon.

“They drag them around at high speeds. It seems like they pretty much do whatever they want. They even have an indoor slide and rock climbing wall.”

“It’s amazing that no one’s ever gotten hurt.”

Or that Jana gets no credit for it.

Jana Marie Duggar


Jana Marie Duggar is so beautiful … and put upon, supposedly, by a family that relies on her to help take care of the others but never have a life of her own. If that’s true, it’s sad. Is it time for her to break free?

To their credit, there has been no sign of abuse, mental or physical, or rumors of any legitimate scandals with the family, despite its increasingly high profile.

While to a point, you can’t expect a family that large to coexist without a level of chaos thrown into the mix, you have to wonder about the toll it takes on Jana.

With Josh Duggar married with children, Jill Duggar marrying Derick Dillard and Jessa Duggar set to get married November 1, Jana’s plight seems even sadder.

To see the family as they want to be portrayed on TLC, watch 19 Kids and Counting online to catch up on their comings and goings, then comment below:

Should Jim Bob and Michelle cut her a break and bring in some hired help to keep the kids in line instead of their vaunted buddy system? Discuss!

Toys R Us Under Fire for Breaking Bad Action Figure: Read Bryan Cranston’s Epic Response!

Heisenberg 1, Florida Woman 0.

Late last week, Susan Schrivjer of Fort Myers started a Change.org petition to get Toys ‘R’ Us to remove Breaking Bad action figures from its shelves.

The items – which featured  Walter White and Jesse Pinkman in Hazmat suits, along with tiny guns, sacks of cash and a bag of meth – are on sale now for $13.99.

Breaking Bad Figure

But it isn’t the price with which Schrivjer takes issue.

“Toys R Us is well known around the world for their vast selection of toys for children of all ages,” the documents reads. “However, their decision to sell a Breaking Bad doll, complete with a detachable sack of cash and a bag of meth, alongside children’s toys is a dangerous deviation from their family friendly values.”

To date, the petition has over 3,600 signatures.

“While the show may be compelling viewing for adults, its violent content and celebration of the drug trade make this collection unsuitable to be sold alongside Barbie dolls and Disney characters,” Schrivjer adds.

How does Cranston, a four-time Emmy Award winner for his role on this AMC smash, feel about the flap? This is what he Tweeted in response:

“Florida mom petitions against Toys ‘R Us over Breaking Bad action figures.’ I’m so mad, I’m burning my Florida Mom action figure in protest.”

HA! We love it.

Toys ‘R’ Us, meanwhile, issued its own statement in regard to the petition, addressing Schrivjer and writing:

“The products you reference are carried in very limited quantities and the product packaging clearly notes that the items are intended for ages 15 and up. Items from this TV series are located in the adult action figure area of our stores.”

That should pretty much put an end to this controversy, shouldn’t it?

Unless some toddler is gonna watch Breaking Bad online, why would he or she even want to own a Walter White doll? Seems easy enough in this case for parents to simply not purchase the item for their kids.

Religion


If Miley Cyrus is God then there’s probably hope for us all.

JK Simmons is the anti-Miles Teller: ‘I have no illusions about being a movie star’

wenn21830600

Here are some photos of Miles Teller and JK Simmons at the BFI London Film Festival yesterday – these are photocall and premiere photos for Whiplash. I’m surprised to see Miles towering over JK. I mean, I knew Miles was a big guy, but I thought JK was tall too. Whiplash has become the indie partner to The Imitation Game this year. The Imitation Game keeps scooping up the big awards at film festivals, while Whiplash keeps getting awards for “Audience Favorite” and such. Plus, most people really believe that JK is a major Oscar contender for Best Supporting Actor. Too bad his costar has already worn out his welcome, right?

JK has been doing a lot of press for the film, just as much as Miles. But JK’s interviews don’t generate the same kind of heat because JK is not a raging a—hole. When The Wrap sat down with JK to talk about the movie, the last questions were about being a life-long character actor, remembered and beloved without ever being a proper “movie star.” When asked if he would ever want to be a leading man, JK said:

“Well, I’ve had a lot of great supporting parts. And honestly, I’ve got a wife and kids, so I like spending time at home. I just did a TV show this past year where I was number one on the call sheet ["Growing Up Fisher"], and I was working 60 hours a week. And it was a good show and I enjoyed it, but at the end of the day I was like, this is a lot of work. Generally, I like being the supporting guy. And that was obviously part of the joy of doing “Whiplash,” because this is just a bigger supporting part than usual. But I have no illusions about being a movie star. I’m just glad to be able to work. To be able to do the short and then do the feature a year later, and then to be sitting here in whatever fancy hotel this is talking about it has been a pretty cool journey.

[From The Wrap]

Humble. Cool. Not interested in being the second coming of Ryan Gosling. Happy where he is. Compare that to any of Miles Teller’s recent profiles and you wonder what JK really thinks of his costar. Oh, Miles has a new interview with The Daily Beast this week – go here to read. He says some sort of interesting stuff about his friendship with Shailene Woodley (he compared them to Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams) and once again talked about how in-demand he is these days.

Frances McDormand on plastic surgery: It makes me ‘full of fear and rage’

Frances McDormand

Frances McDormand is promoting her new miniseries, Olive Kitteridge. The project is about a family who lives in a New England town where not everything is as safe and sound as it seems. The town’s residents are all having affairs and enduring various tragedies. Frances did a new interview with the New York Times where she calls the miniseries “a subversive act” because it provides so many aging actors with roles. Frances is 57 and keeps a low profile for a woman who’s married to a Coen Brother.

Frances may appear in many of Joel Cohen’s movies (I loved her in Burn After Reading), but she’s not getting the roles because she’s married to the director. Frances is immensely talented. She won the Oscar for Fargo and hid her award behind a bunch of books on an obscure shelf. She sometimes dresses it in “a cowboy outfit” for fun but mostly ignores it. Frances was also nominated for Almost Famous and two other movie roles. She’s a good egg, as they say. Here are her feelings on aging and plastic surgery:

On aging in Hollywood: “We are on red alert when it comes to how we are perceiving ourselves as a species. There’s no desire to be an adult. Adulthood is not a goal. It’s not seen as a gift. Something happened culturally: No one is supposed to age past 45 — sartorially, cosmetically, attitudinally. Everybody dresses like a teenager. Everybody dyes their hair. Everybody is concerned about a smooth face.”

Her feelings on plastic surgery: “I have not mutated myself in any way. Joel and I have this conversation a lot. He literally has to stop me physically from saying something to people — to friends who’ve had work. I’m so full of fear and rage about what they’ve done.” Looking old, she said, should be a boast about experiences accrued and insights acquired, a triumphant signal “that you are someone who, beneath that white hair, has a card catalog of valuable information.”

Her early career: “I was often told that I wasn’t a thing. She’s not pretty enough, she’s not tall enough, she’s not thin enough, she’s not fat enough.’ I thought, ‘O.K., someday you’re going to be looking for someone not, not, not, not, and there I’ll be.’”

Her marriage to Joel: “I’ve been with a man for 35 years who looks at me and loves what he sees.”

She hasn’t watched FX’s Fargo: “Not interested,” she said, explaining that she’s leery of “the cultural appropriation of intellectual property.”

[From NYT]

It’s completely refreshing to hear a successful actress talk about how ragey they feel when they witness plastic surgery’s effects. A lot of times, actresses will talk about how cosmetic procedures make them “sad” as they Botox their worries away. Frances doesn’t belong to that group. She admits to fear when people look different after doctor’s visits. It IS scary. Frances is one of the only actresses who will speak their mind on the subject. Let me modify that statement. She’s one of the only actresses who says this stuff and isn’t hiding some plastic surgery. She’s no hypocrite in that department.
