Beyonce Plays With Prints

beyonce instagramTake a look at this shot Beyonce posted on Instagram. Judging by the short bangs (which she lost upon returning to New York), I’m guessing Beyonce was still touring museums in London when this picture was taken. As you can see, she had fun mixing it up with prints. RELATED: Beyonce and Jay Z are gallery-hopping across the pond.

I never would’ve thought to pair that top with that skirt. I like each of them individually, though, so I can see buying them. But to think to put them together… Well, that’s why she’s Beyonce, and I’m not- LOL.

She looks great, though. Are you a fan? And are you having fun with prints this season? I’m still too intimidated to mix them.

Benedict Cumberbatch knows what Sherlock would be like in bed & it’s magical

bendy2

Ha, I got some requests for MOAR Benedict Cumberbatch coverage! I love it when that happens. As we’ve been discussing all week, Benedict covers the special edition of ELLE UK and they’ve released the “full article” online – go here to read. It’s charming and liquor-soaked and Bendy seems like a good time, if your definition of a “good time” is being told off by a posh Englishman. During one of Benedict’s amazing rants/posh tell-offs, he goes off about Sherlock’s sexuality and how Sherlock would be amazing in bed if he actually prioritized sex. Here’s the basic gist, with some minor edits:

ELLE UK: A lot of women fancy Sherlock.

BC: Their problem, not mine.

ELLE UK: I do get it, he’s incredibly endearing, but…

BC: Will this tell me more about you than the answer will tell you about me?

ELLE UK: …I actually think he would be a terrible shag…I think he would be proficient, of course, but he would lack enthusiasm and he would find it distasteful.

BC: Ah, these are terrible stereotypes. And come on, he seduced Janine.

ELLE UK: But they didn’t have sex?

BC: Oh you’re right, very good, you spotted that.

ELLE UK: What do you think Sherlock would be like in bed? How would you play a love scene as Sherlock?

BC: Oooh… You know I’d get the, I’d probably test the latex, if it involved prophylactics, beforehand. I’d do a little experiment to do with durability, length, girth, and um, strength. And um, I would probably take a lot of vitamin supplements to make sure that I could perform, and had had my sleep, and probably not had many cigarettes. Or drink, for that matter. Not that he does drink.

ELLE UK: You see. Proficient, but lacking enthusiasm.

BC: Yeah, no wait for it. I would probably watch a lot of p0rn…I might have to shave, um, areas to fit in with a modern idea of bodily hair. And then I would be devastating. I’d know exactly how to please a woman, I’d know exactly where to put my fingers, where to put my tongue, where to put my – his I should say – his fingers, his tongue. Think about violinists, think about what they can do with their fingers. And I’d know exactly how to get that person into it, and get pleasure out of making that person feel pleasure to the point that I probably wouldn’t even have to enter…But when I did it would be explosive.

ELLE UK: But does he ever lose control?

BC: So in sex, would he lose control? I think to have really good sex he would probably have to.

ELLE UK: So he’d decide to lose control. He’d make a controlled decision?

BC: This is a very dark alley we’re going down. No pun intended. Um, Yeah. Yeah. If it was necessary yes, yes. Very much so.

ELLE UK: I’d quite like to watch that love scene now.

BC: You never will. It’s not that kind of a programme, is it?

[From Elle UK]

Oh my God. Just… OMG. This is right up there with Michael Fassbender taking about his inner sexual beast and destroying the sweetshop. Benedict talking about violin fingers and losing control and “dark alleys” and his tongue. The only thing that would take this next-level is if he mentioned his auburn dong muff again.

Celeb Blind Item Who’s “The Controller”?

Blind-Folded-Man17This sounds sad. And scary. Someone needs to get away from “The Controller.” Read the goss after the break.

If you think Brian Austin Green controls Megan Fox’s life to the point of micro management, it is nothing compared to this A list singer married to a former A list singer. She had the chance to be a judge on The Voice during its first season but he made her turn it down because he didn’t want her away from him that much because he would not be able to keep an eye on her. Now, this is all strange because he is the one who cheats and would love to continue his fling with the A+ list singer. It was a one time thing but he thinks it can be a forever thing. She calls it a mistake but that doesn’t stop him from calling and texting her all the time. Anyway, back to the controlling. Hair? She once cut it and he went into a rage and made her get extensions the next day. Since that day, he has to be told of all hair appointments or any magazine shoots that will require any hair cutting. He is at all magazine shoots which mostly take place at their home or on the road with him. She is not usually allowed to travel alone. If she steps out of line there have definitely been slaps and shoves, but no punching. Bruises and scratches and pulled hair, but nothing that leaves a mark where people would ask questions. He has drinking issues and steroid issues and is just incredibly insecure. As for her part, she just puts up with it because she doesn’t want to deal with what would happen if she leaves. So, she just copes. Pills help.

Any guesses? I’m going to be wracking my brain on this one.

Jennifer Aniston wasn’t wearing her ring this week, but it was ‘just being cleaned’

FFN_Aniston_Jenn_PABLO_102814_51570129

As soon as Deadline announced that Jennifer Aniston’s “possible Oscar contender” film Cake had found a distributor, Aniston “somehow” managed to get pap’d in LA. I’m including some of the blurry photos we have access to, but you can see some better-quality X17 photos here. I glanced at the photos yesterday, but I didn’t really care about them because they were so blurry and poor quality. But it seems like the Aniston-loonies poured over the photos and noticed that something was missing: Aniston’s engagement ring. Just FYI: Aniston’s ringlessness was NOT being covered on any of the sites I read yesterday. But Aniston’s publicist still wanted to give everyone an engagement update!

Jennifer Aniston was spotted out and about in Los Angeles earlier today, and everyone freaked out. And no, it wasn’t because of her always gorgeous hair, or her latest designer duds…this time, it was all about one suspiciously missing accessory: her engagement ring.

The actress sparked speculation that there was something fishy going on between her and her fiancé, Justin Theroux, after she was seen without the diamond sparkler. But fret not, you guys. It turns out that all is well in the Aniston-Theroux household.

In fact, the A-lister’s rep had a perfectly good explanation for why she stepped out sans bling.

“Everyone should calm down—the ring was just being cleaned and is safely back on her hand.”

Well then…glad that’s settled.

[From E! News]

Sigh… I go back and forth about Aniston’s PR. Does she want us to speculate about the state of her engagement? Does she want us to talk about Justin Theroux’s cold feet? Did she step out without her ring on purpose so that her rep could deny the “rumors”? I have no idea if all of this is so vapidly Machiavellian. But I do know that I still think her rock looks like a cheap, cloudy quartz. I’m going to need to see the receipts on this diamond.

This is Aniston flashing her quartz a few weeks ago:

Lena Dunham: ‘It used to be that every time I woke up before 7 am, I vomited’

wenn21871507

Will I be called a traitor to feminism if I say that Lena Dunham’s green hair is the worst? Actually, looking at her hair over the course of the past two months, I kind of think the green hair is much better than the platinum blonde. Blonde didn’t suit her at all. The green is bad, but slightly better. Anyway, these are photos of Lena promoting her book in London this week. She did a BBC interview, a book signing and other promotional appearances. Anyway, there was something about jet-lag and getting up early in London that made Lena want to vom.

Lena Dunham used to vomit if she had to get up before 7am. The 28-year-old star is best known for writing hit HBO show Girls, which she also appears in. Now she’s a megastar, she has to spend a lot of time travelling to promote her work – which means a great deal of early starts.

“I felt toddler-ish – like an angry toddler,” she laughed to BBC Radio 1 about her mood that morning. “I don’t do well in the morning, but my job often requires me to wake up very early. It used to be that every time I woke up before 7am, I vomited. But I’m better now.”

Lena is currently in London, UK, to promote her new book Not That Kind of Girl. While over in the British capital she has been indulging her love of crumpets – a bread snack, eaten toasted and usually slathered in butter.

“I have a theory that butter is very healthy for you and one of the reasons so many people in Hollywood get divorces is because they’re not allowing themselves [butter],” she laughed of her fondness for the calorific spread.

During her stay, Lena has also been bought some gay interest and women’s interest books by her family and friends, who have been busy browsing London’s stores.

The star spoke a little about the process of writing her novel.

“I wrote a few essays and decided it could be a book and then it was just forcing myself do it in my off hours; it took about two years to write,” she said. “Even though there’s some serious stuff, I hoped it would be a joyful experience. Every time I make myself laugh writing, someone else says, ‘I don’t like that part.’ Nothing I laugh at successfully makes it into anything. I have a good base of people who will be like: ‘You can’t do that.’”

[From Film News]

I’ve always been a morning person, even since I was a kid. I mean, I can stay up late and sleep in (sometimes), but I’ve found that I function best as an early-to-bed, early-to-rise type, and I don’t really understand people who are THIS dysfunctional in the morning. I can see still being sleepy or needing some caffeine, but I don’t get “If I wake up early, I want to vomit.” As for butter… I’ve been using margarine for so long, I sometimes forget what real butter tastes like.

Adrian Grenier on Entourage’s misogyny: ‘When I first read the script, I declined’

Adrian Grenier goes a shirtless dip while on the beach with his girlfriend in Miami
Here’s Adrian Grenier, 38, shirtless on the beach and going for a run in Miami yesterday. He’s a good looking guy he’s just much hotter to me when his hair is wet. I had the pleasure of seeing Grenier in person a couple of years ago. I thought the same thing back then, that he needed a haircut, but I have a thing for bald men.

Grenier is of course known for his work on HBO’s Entourage, which was finally made into a movie over three years after the series wrapped in September, 2011. The film is coming out in June, 2015. In the interim Grenier has focused on filmmaking, he’s made documentaries such as Teenage Paparazzo and the new six minute film, Bee’s Invoice (you can watch it here). Bee’s Invoice is about the hidden economic value of natural resources and makes the case that good environmental policy is good economic policy. It’s highly stylized and is both informative and entertaining. Grenier is a thoughtful person who is trying to make a difference, at least that’s the impression I had after seeing him speak.

In a new interview with The Daily Beast, Grenier addresses the main argument against Entourage – that it’s misogynistic in that the female characters are just vessels for male fantasy. He defends the show, which is understandable but I don’t know if he makes a good case here. There’s a lot more to the interview and you can read it on The Daily Beast. Here are some excerpts:

One criticism often levied at Entourage was the depiction of women on the show—that they were, by and large, empty vessels merely meant to service the needs of the male characters or serve as eye-catching “scenery.”
Right. Eye-candy. Great furniture, though? [Laughs] I would disagree. When I first read the script, I declined to audition. I said, “This is misogynistic, it’s base, it’s immature, and superficial. Pass.” I was ultimately convinced otherwise, and I’m very glad that I was. In retrospect, I was wrong. On the surface, yes, it may be that. It’s candy in a lot of ways—and not just the women, but the conspicuous consumption and indulgence of cars, drugs, parties, and so forth. It’s a male fantasy in a lot of ways.

But at its core, and I think the reason why the show lasted so long, is that it’s about brotherhood and friendship. It’s about the values that transcend all of that stuff and actually allow them to survive all that glitz and glamour. Plus, I don’t know if you’ve ever been to Hollywood, but the show is a reflection of reality. There are a lot of women there who give women a bad name because of the way they portray themselves, carry themselves, and indulge themselves, and there are a lot of men who help to propagate that. So to ignore that reality would be disingenuous. And this isn’t a “activism” show. I’d tell Doug, “Come one, do they have to drive a Hummer? What are we trying to say about the environment? Can they drive a Prius?” And he’d tell me, “That’s not who these guys are. It would not be authentic if they drove a Prius.” And I respected that, because it held a mirror to reality.

Also, a lot of the tertiary “wallpaper” characters on the show are eye-candy, but many of the recurring characters are strong women. Dana Gordon. Sloan. Ari’s wife. Vince’s girlfriends. Carla Gugino’s character. Sasha Grey was… empowered. [Laughs]

[From The Daily Beast]

I think that Grenier is saying that the women were wallpaper because that’s the reality of that situation, just like the fact that his character drove a Hummer. The show wasn’t endorsing that lifestyle, it was just portraying it authentically. He’s also admitting that it’s not something he condones and that he did have a knee jerk reaction to how misogynistic it was, which he eventually got over. I don’t have a dog in this fight because I never got into Entourage. I tried to watch it, it was just too much of a bro show for me to enjoy.

Grenier also admitted that he was involved in collective bargaining with the other cast to make sure they got the best deal for the movie. He said, of the controversy over the wait to make the film, that it was “Politics and it’s sh*t-talking. People are looking for controversy, and they’ll find it if they have to. You negotiate, and until the deal is done, there is no movie… Our contracts on the show were one thing and then after that there were no contracts, so some players wanted to manipulate that fact. But we decided as a team to stick together, and stand united.” Good for them. He seems like a stand up guy.

Reese Witherspoon All Smiles After Lunch With A Gal Pal

Reese Witherspoon Lunches In BrentwoodLook at Reese Witherspoon’s smile! I think it’s safe to say the ‘Wild’ star had a fun lunch with a gal pal yesterday afternoon. Sometimes there’s nothing more rejuvenating than spending some downtime with your girlfriends, right? RELATED: Reese Witherspoon speaks out about her 2013 arrest.

As usual, I’m a fan of Reese’s casual chic style. She’s wearing simple jeans and a sweater but those stiletto pumps elevate the whole outfit. No “soccer mom” sneakers here. One accessory really can make all the difference. And I’m practically salivating over that bag. Seriously. LOVE it.

Reese is definitely one of the Hollywood stars whose closet I’d love to raid. I wouldn’t be able to wear anything in it, since she’s tiny, but the accessories alone would make the opportunity worthwhile.

Benedict Cumberbatch talks equality, marriage, babies & ‘trysts’ with Elle UK

bendy5

This is full-on Cumberp0rn. Elle UK is our supplier, our dealer, our enabler of all of our Cumberfixes. I showed everyone the Elle UK special cover featuring Benedict Cumberbatch weeks ago, but Elle UK has finally released more of their editorial, plus some quotes, plus TWO videos. I can’t even describe how beautiful Benedict looks in this editorial. And the videos take the hotness to the next-level. HIS HAIR IS SO GOOD. His skin looks great too. And whoever styled him knows what they’re doing – I would even suggest to Cumby that he should hire this stylist full time for his Oscar campaign. First, here are some interview highlights:

We spent the day with Benedict, 38, rambling around Hampstead Heath, riding his motorbike (a little recklessly) through London, and drinking cocktails at the Chiltern Firehouse. And we talked to him about everything: his work, his childhood, his friendships, his family, love life, Sherlock (of course) and babies. We’ve had better days at work. We just can’t think of them right now.

On his next film The Imitation Game, in which he plays WW2 code-breaker and founder of modern computer science Alan Turing, he says: “It [genius] is a very rich canvas to work with as an actor. Turing is so different to Sherlock. There’s a real subtlety about him; his flourishes aren’t flamboyant, he doesn’t think of himself that highly.”

On his love life, he is sweetly candid. “It’s a really double-edged sword,” he says, about dating post-Sherlock fame. “You know, you discover why people find you attractive – in a relationship or a tryst – and if it’s just to have a go on you or try you out, then I can smell that a mile off.”

It hasn’t made him cynical though. He is most definitely looking for the fairytale: “I hope I’m looking back and going: ‘Oh, that was the moment I got on with life and realised things beyond myself.’ Without using words like ‘marriage’ ‘children’ and ‘family’ – although I have just used those words – put it this way: I hope I’ve got other people to look back with me at that point. I hope I’m surrounded by family.” He’s a feminist too, you know.

[From Elle UK]

Of course he uses a word like “tryst” to describe some sexy one-night-stands or flings. Sigh… a tryst with Bendy. Lovely. As for the “fairytale” of real love, otter-style… he’s actually learned to speak in more opaque terms. I remember a time when he would just come right out and say “I want to married, I want kids, hopefully soon.” He’s changed a bit there. But he still made my heart flutter. You can see more of Elle UK’s package here.

This is my new favorite video – it’s Benedict looking gorgeous and playing a word-association game with Elle. Otter? “Me.” Hiddleston? “Tom.”

And this is the behind-the-scenes video of his photoshoot. This is just straight-up Cumberp0rn.

LOVE THE FEMINISM, CUMBER.

Anne Hathaway in Richard Nicholl at the ‘Interstellar’ premiere: pretty or dated?

wenn21864929

Here are some photos from last night’s LA premiere of Interstellar. It had the feel of a big red carpet but there really weren’t many fashion-y people there beyond the principal actors. So I’m just focusing on the stars. Let’s start with Anne Hathaway, whose hair is really starting to look worlds better, right? She did the pixie-ish cut for too long after Les Mis. I’m really happy with her hair now – so much softer, so much better for her face. Annie’s dress is Richard Nicholl – pretty color, but kind of snooze. Lots of girls wore satin slipdresses back in the 1990s and I’m okay with that look making a comeback. Annie’s jewelry is James Banks Designs and she really wants it to be photographed. Um, doesn’t Anne’s husband design jewelry?

wenn21865403

wenn21864663

Here’s Jessica Chastain in black Givenchy. I like her styling a lot more than I like the dress. Jessica does tend to have red carpet issues usually, but there’s nothing awful here. The dress is a bit matronly from the front and “1980s music video girl” from the side with those lace panels.

wenn21864921

wenn21864925

Here’s Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves. He’s in Dolce & Gabbana and she’s in Rubin Singer. Why does MM look so out of it these days? It’s like he refuses to step on a red carpet without taking ten huge bong hits beforehand.

And finally, here’s our boyfriend Wes Bentley, looking beautiful and healthy with his wife Jacqui Swedberg.
