Chris Hemsworth is People Mag’s 2014 Sexiest Man Alive: yay or nay?

hemsworth people

To be a Sexiest Man Alive, you have to have hustle. And while I have my doubts that Chris Hemsworth really has that hustle, I have no doubts that Elsa Pataky could out-hustle nearly everyone in Hollywood. So, here you go! Our 2014 Sexiest Man Alive is NOT Chris Pratt. Or Prince Harry. Or an Otter Dressed Up As Benedict Cumberbatch. It is Chris Hemsworth. My first reaction? “What does he have to promote?” You know what it is? That Ron Howard movie, In the Heart of the Sea. Smart. Too bad they stuck Brad Pitt’s 1996 wig on him for the cover!!

He continues to smite bad guys as a hammer-wielding Norse god in The Avengers, will fight off a terrorist hacker in Michael Mann’s upcoming cyber thriller, Blackhat and battle a whale in Ron Howard’s In the Heart of the Sea, but there was no contest when it came to naming Aussie Chris Hemsworth this year’s Sexiest Man Alive.

The actor, 31, thought it was “pretty funny” when he first heard the news – as did his wife, Spanish model, Elsa Pataky, 38, whom he wed in 2010.

“I think you’ve bought me a couple of weeks of bragging rights around the house,” he tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “I can just say to her, ‘Now remember, this is what the people think, so I don’t need to do the dishes anymore, I don’t need to change nappies. I’m above that. I’ve made it now.’ ”

The Australian-bred Hemsworth also reveals that he prefers to sleep sans pajamas, has a signature dance move (with a spin!) and would rather be home in Australia, where he and Pataky live with their three kids – daughter India, 2½, and 8-month-old twin sons, Sasha and Tristan – than anywhere else.

“We just had a big beach day with the kids, swimming and kicking the ball around,” he says. “That was the first time in a long time we’ve done that. That’s what it’s all about.”

As for that ripped body, Hemsworth, who puts on 20 lbs. of muscle for his role as Thor, says he tries to be disciplined when it comes to his diet and exercise but looks forward to his cheat days. “Then it’s pizza, hamburgers, beer, sugary things,” he adds. “Everything I’m not allowed to have!”

[From People]

It probably would have been smarter to give this to him last year, with Thor and Rush coming out last fall/winter. But he has the Ron Howard movie, plus Blackhat… which looks BAD. So he needs a push. He needs a push more than Chris Pratt. And hey… I’m sure more people find Hemsworth sexier than Pratt.

You can see the rest of People’s SMA package here. The rest of the men who made the list: Chris Pratt, Jamie Dornan, Ki Hong Lee, Blake Shelton, Bradley Cooper, Matt Bomer, Michael Strahan, Eddie Redmayne, Scott Foley and Tim Tebow. UGH! No otters made the short list. No charming potatoes either.

Chris was announced as the SMA last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Hemsworth came out and told Kimmel that “I learned everything there is about being sexy from Matt Damon.” You can see the video here. And here’s his video with People – he’s better in motion. And he thinks Elsa is the sexiest.

Kristen Stewart: ‘It’s a really ridiculous thing to say you’re not a feminist’

FFN_GG_CampXRayMeet_100714_51551895

Kristen Stewart got pap’d so much in NYC last week, I didn’t even get the chance to use all of the new photos of her. So here’s a hodge-podge of K-Stew pics from the last week. Enjoy! Kristen managed to avoid being pap’d with Nicholas Hoult, even though he came out to her NYFF premiere and after-party – they were reportedly pretty tight at the party, so take that however you want. Kristen also sat down with The Daily Beast for a lengthy interview about Camp X-Ray last week (it was published on Saturday). You can read the full piece here. Most of the conversation is about Gitmo and the politics of Gitmo and terrorism. Kristen also talks about the people who think she cannot act, plus her thoughts on feminism. Some highlights:

Taking two years off, then working with a first-time director on Camp X-Ray: “I’m never really that precious about choosing projects that don’t have every sure element that is a guaranteed good experience and/or success. There’s a lot of risk involved in this job, and it doesn’t bother me… I’ve had experiences that have made me go, ‘Ugh, I have to be careful and make sure that every part is sturdy and that I won’t be let down.’ If I was a director, I would be extremely conscious of my filmography. It says so much about the difference between putting your name on something and owning it instead of being one tiny part of it. Actors get to work all the time. If I make a bad movie every once in a while, I don’t care. I didn’t work after Snow White for about two years, but it’s because a lot of these projects didn’t come together. I’m decisive, but I’m definitely not a planner.”

The criticism that she can’t act: “Honestly, I don’t care. It’s fine. I’m really happy doing what I’m doing. I’m sure there are a ton of people out there who would hate my movies even if they saw all those, just as I’m sure there are people out there who are obsessed with Twilight and say, ‘I watched the series, and she completely let me down, and then I watched every one of her other movies, and I f–kin’ hate her!’ And that’s cool! Just don’t watch my movies.”

Whether she’s politically active: “I don’t want to talk about that s–t at all. Trust me, I’m only asking for it. When it comes time to stand up and affect change, I’m not the type of person to shout from the rooftops. Just because you’re an actor and in the public eye, people think that’s how you must be. But there are other ways to do that. That’s not me.

She’s confused why some young women don’t identify with feminism: “That’s such a strange thing to say, isn’t it? Like, what do you mean? Do you not believe in equality for men and women? I think it’s a response to overly-aggressive types. There are a lot of women who feel persecuted and go on about it, and I sometimes am like, ‘Honestly, just relax, because now you’re going in the other direction.’ Sometimes, the loudest voice in the room isn’t necessarily the one you should listen to. By our nature alone, think about what you’re saying and say it—but don’t scream in people’s faces, because then you’re discrediting us. Relating it to my one little avenue, people say, “If you want to make it in the film industry as a woman, you have to be a bitch.” No, you are going to ruin any chance you have and give us a bad name. It’s the overcompensation to where our generation goes, “Relax,” because it’s been easier for us, and because we don’t have as much of the anger, so it’s like we can’t get behind it and it’s a bit embarrassing. But that being said, it’s a really ridiculous thing to say you’re not a feminist.

[From The Daily Beast]

Kristen’s answer on the feminism question is classic Kristen – for most of the answer, I thought she was going off in one direction (the “women need to stop complaining about inequality” direction) and then she does an about-face at the very end with the “of course you should identify with feminism” direction. Can you talk sincerely about feminism if you had a high-profile affair with your married director? I’m honestly asking.

There’s also a somewhat interesting discussion about Catherine Hardwicke, the director of the first Twilight movie, and how Hardwicke was basically chased out of Hollywood after the failure of Red Riding Hood. Kristen doesn’t defend her former director and champion specifically at all, but she does say that what happened to Hardwicke was “f—ked up” and that women need to “persevere” in the industry to make it.

Prince William & Kate issue legal threat to photographer Niraj Tanna

wenn21296531

Last week, something unusual happened. Prince William and Duchess Kate’s office made a major fuss over “an individual” who they claimed was “harassing” Prince George. What kind of harassment? They were complaining about a photographer talking photos of George when George was out and about with one of his nannies. This is the statement released by the Buckingham Palace spokesperson:

“The Duke and Duchess have taken legal steps to ask that an individual ceases harassing and following both Prince George and his nanny as they go about their ordinary daily lives,” Buckingham Palace spokesman James Roscoe said in a statement Thursday. “There is reason to suspect that the individual may been placing Prince George under surveillance and monitoring his daily routines for a period of time.”

The photographer, who was seen last week at a London Park following the toddler and his nanny, has been approached several times in the past few years by palace authorities.

“The Duke and Duchess understand the particular public role that Prince George will one day inherit but while he is young, he must be permitted to lead as ordinary a life as possible,” Roscoe said. “No parent would tolerate the suspicion of someone pursuing and harassing their child and carer whilst their child is playing in a public park or going about their daily activities.”

[From Today]

It was a strange story just at face value because it seemed like Will and Kate were complaining about photos being taken out in public, in a public park, which is just… well, unusual. Of course all royal babies (and all people) have privacy rights, but the whole thing just seemed… odd. Then it got even weirder. The photographer “harassing” George was named, and it’s Ikon Pictures’ photographer Niraj Tanna. Royal conspiracists have always noted the seemingly cozy relationship Tanna has with Kate and the Middleton family in particular, and it’s widely believed by those conspiracists that the Middletons have “set up” photo-ops with Tanna several times when he got weird exclusives. I guess the bloom is off the rose with that relationship though – over the past year, Tanna has been growing increasingly critical of William and Kate. And I guess they’ve noticed. Anyway, Tanna responded:

A photographer who has been accused of “harassing” Prince George by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge has denied any wrongdoing will continue to take snaps of the 14-month old. Lawyers for Prince William and Kate Middleton accused two members of the press of intruding on the future king’s personal life as he went about his “ordinary daily” life with his nanny.

Lawyers for Tanna have insisted their client has not done anything wrong and the harassment accusations are “wholly without foundation”. In a seven page letter, Tanna’s lawyers said he was “fully entitled” to photograph Prince George in a public place and will “vigorously contest” any legal action.

It adds: “He will continue to undertake his work with the concerns of the Prince’s parents very much in mind.”

[From The International Business Times]

Interesting. While I don’t doubt that it would creep out any parent if a photographer had their long lens trained on their baby, it does feel like there’s something else at work here. We’ll see.

Oh, and The Mirror claims that IF Kate is feeling up to it, she and William are planning an official trip to New York. I think this would be Kate’s first-ever trip to New York. They’re loosely planning the trip for end of November/beginning of December. I hope they’re able to come. Skip Thanksgiving though and come in the beginning of December!

Viola Davis: Stop referring to black women as ‘angry, sassy, scary or soulful’

wenn21772722

As we all know, Viola Davis is everything. She’s smart, she’s cool, she’s beautiful, she is profoundly talented and she is hands-down a great interview. At some point – I think around her Oscar campaign for The Help – Viola just decided to stop sugarcoating everything. When she gives interviews now, she talks about the Real Truths of being a woman of color in in Hollywood, about racism,her childhood poverty and her naked ambition to play big, important roles. Viola gave a great interview to New York Magazine this week – this is her first interview since the whole New York Times/angry-black-woman BS hit the fan two weeks ago. The NYT later issued a half-assed apology about the article, but watch Viola cut ‘em down to size.

Her first starring role in How To Get Away With Murder: “People are always sending me pictures of the poster that’s everywhere. I see responsibility when I see those posters. I see pressure. I’m aware that my booty is on the line.”

The “angry black woman” NYT piece: Davis says she finds the term “angry” as a descriptor for African-­American women to be “very offensive, as is ‘sassy,’ as is ‘soulful.’ We’ve used them enough. It’s time to bury them in the racial-history graveyard. My feeling about the article is it’s a reflection of how we view women of color, what adjectives we use to describe them—as scary, as angry, as unattractive. I think that people are tired of it.”

Being called “older, darker-skinned and less classically beautiful”: “There is no one who would compare Glenn Close to Julianna Margulies, Zooey Deschanel to Lena Dunham. They just wouldn’t. They do that with me and Kerry because we’re both African-Americans and we’re both in Shonda Rhimes shows. But they wouldn’t compare me to Ellen Pompeo. Because Ellen Pompeo is white.”

Fear of failure: “I have a certain level of fear about How to Get Away. Fear of failure. I say this with the utmost humility. I was ready to be the show. I was ready to step into my power as an actress.”

Advice from Kerry Washington: “Kerry said, ‘You’re going to be tired.’ And she said that on your one day off, they’re gonna schedule a photo shoot. She said, ‘Viola, you’re good, you’ve got it. You did theater, you got the theater spirit in you.’ For some reason that clicked. Because you have to trust that you know what you’re doing. You have to trust your experience.”

Her poverty-stricken childhood: “[There was] a lot of violence in the family. Poverty does that to you. I was very shameful growing up. I felt like I was in the hole, and you need something to pull you out of the hole.”

Performing as a child: “There’s something about hearing the applause, because it’s validation. When you feel like you’re living on the periphery, validation means a lot.”

She’s less concerned about her appearance: She used to wear wigs everywhere, from the gym to her beloved Jacuzzi. “I was so desperate for people to think that I was beautiful,” she says, but now she exposes her natural hair.

[From Vulture]

Viola makes me ache. I’m serious. I love her, I love the way she acknowledges her own need for validation and how that stems from her childhood. I love this admission: “I was so desperate for people to think that I was beautiful.” Girl, you are beautiful!!!

As for her comments about the NYT piece… I find it interesting that she lists the descriptors that need to stop (angry, scary, unattractive, sassy, soulful) by saying “people are tired of it.” She doesn’t give some long-winded diatribe, it’s just… we’re tired. It’s 2014. Stop saying that black women are angry, scary, less classically beautiful, sassy, etc. Enough.

Prince Harry looks great in London, promotes Invictus Games: would you hit it?

FFN_Prince_Harry_FFUK_exc_073014_51490321

I don’t care if this sounds inappropriate, but holy hell, Prince Harry looks so bangable these days. This might be the best he’s looked in years. He’s thinned out, he doesn’t look like he goes out drinking every night, his hair is a good length and he can wear the hell out of some jeans. These are some new pics of Harry outside of BBC Radio 2 in London today, where he was doing some advanced promotion for the Invictus Games. He posed with a cute little girl too. Harry + children = always great.

The Invictus Games start right around Harry’s 30th birthday in September. Vanity Fair says that Harry isn’t going to have a big blowout for his b-day this year – William and Kate are going to throw him a small dinner party in Kensington Palace (??) and then Guy Pelly is throwing a party for him at one of Guy’s nightclubs, but Harry will leave the party by 10:30.

In other Harry news, over the weekend he attended a “secret garden party” in Cambridgeshire which was like an undercover music festival, I guess? In any case, Harry went shirtless – you can see the photo here. It’s not quite like the Las Vegas “nude scandal” but it’s still decent. This is probably one of the reasons why Harry recently proclaimed his hatred for Twitter. Last week, he was doing a social media event to promote the Invictus Games and he said:

“I really hate Twitter. I would love to get involved and go on social media, and if it was for causes like this I really would. The issue for myself and my family, put quite simply, is that it’s very hard for me to tweet about the Invictus Games and tweet about something that means a lot to me, whereas I, at the same time, really quite hate Twitter by the invasion of privacy. I think you all understand what I’m talking about. I would love to tweet about things I care about but it’s a fine line between what you should do and what you can do, and what other people want to know and what you don’t want them to know.”

[From Vanity Fair]

The answer is not “staying off Twitter” though – if you’re a celebrity or royal and you’d like to use social media to promote your work and raise awareness for the causes you feel passionately about, you should go on social media and simply ignore the haters.

And here’s Harry’s photobomb from earlier this week:

Kanye West went on a lengthy Yeezus-style rant in London & everybody booed

wenn21521676

This ^^ is a photo of Kanye West performing at the Verizon festival in London over the weekend. He stepped in at the last minute, replacing Drake who apparently is pretty sick and his doctor ordered him to cancel all of his appearances. So the Yeezus tour came to London. And I’m sorry, English crumpets. As an American, I’ve gotten used to Yeezington’s rants and ravings and his general nutburger vibe. I’ve not only gotten used to, I kind of enjoy it. Kanye has lots of opinions about lots of different things, and while he’s not always wrong, he tends to rub everyone the wrong way because he’s such an egotistical monster, a hypocrite and a label-whore. Throughout his US tour, Kanye has been taking “time outs” during the stage show to go off on 20-minute-long rants about… shoes, the art of genius, and how great he is. And he brought that flavor to the Verizon festival. And the English people were NOT having it.

Kanye West was booed by festival-goers on Friday night after he launched into an extraordinary ’20-minute rant’ in the middle of his Wireless set. The Yeezus rapper caused confusion when he paused his performance at the London music event, held at Finsbury Park, to preach to the crowd about discrimination within the fashion industry.

Wearing a bejewelled mask over his face, Kanye, 37, told the audience: ‘I’m not going to mention any names but… Nike, Louis Vuitton and Gucci. Don’t discriminate against me ‘cos I’m a black man making music. F**k saving face and what it’s supposed to mean, it’s about living my dream.’

And it would seem the move didn’t go down too well with the crowd, with audience members reportedly deserting the al fresco gig in droves. One festival-goer told MailOnline: ‘He was laying into the ‘machine’ and ranting about the public’s perception of him. Hundreds of people left the park early because they were so bored of his long rant. There was serious booing towards the end of the speech, as people got so fed up and just wanted to hear him perform.’

[From The Daily Mail]

Not only did they boo him, some of them were shouting “we want Drake!” Pissy English people were ranting about it on Twitter too. “Sanctimonious prat” was used often. The c-word was dropped. It’s all pretty much on point. I’m including one Vine of the booing, plus video of the whole performance of “Runaway” with most of the rant. Classic Yeezington. What sucks is that “Runaway” is one of his best songs and he just f—ks it up so he can rant about stupid BS.

Tom Hiddleston cast as country legend Hank Williams in bio-pic ‘I Saw the Light’

wenn20784319

Shhh! I can feel the Dragonflies freaking out. It will be fine. Deep breaths. Count to ten slowly. A Tom Hiddleston post is happening. This is what everyone was waiting for, right? That’s why CRAZY was spilling into every Benedict Cumberbatch post for the past two weeks? So, take a deep breath and let’s do this. First of all, Tommy Hiddles got a job! And he’s going to play an American. I’m not sure how I feel about that. Tommy has signed on to the lead role in I Saw the Light, the Hank Williams bio-pic. Tommy will be singing. And wearing cowboy hats. And talking in a Southern drawl. Oh… Tommy.

The Avengers star Tom Hiddleston will play Country & Western legend Hank Williams in I Saw The Light, a film that Marc Abraham will direct and which has come together as a co-production between RatPac Entertainment, Bron Studios, and Creative Wealth Media Finance, all of which will fund the film. Abraham wrote the script based on the Colin Escott biography of Williams and Aaron L. Gilbert will produce with Brett Ratner, G. Marq Rosell and Abraham. Ratner’s partner, James Packer, will be exec producer.

Production will begin in Louisiana in October, and Hiddleston will sing such Williams standards as “Your Cheatin’ Heart”, “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” and “Hey Good Lookin’,” after the film’s backers made a deal with Sony ATV to secure rights to the Williams music catalog. The film will tell the story of Williams’ meteoric rise to fame, and the price that fame took on his personal life. He died at age 29 of heart failure.

[From Deadline]

Considering they got the rights to Williams’ back catalog, I think this will probably be a reasonably prestigious project. At the very least, it will introduce a whole new generation of fans to Hank Williams’ music. Will Tom actually sing? Probably. They’ll probably do something fancy and use both the original Hank Williams recordings AND Tommy’s voice. Because while Tommy is always up to sing and dance, as we’ve seen time and time again, Tommy really doesn’t have the best singing voice. But he’s enthusiastic. And maybe they’ll give him a vocal/singing coach. Tommy also tweeted this:

As for the other stuff… well, I’m not going to stop you Dragonflies from talking about it. I think many people got way too extra about one random foreign article that identified Jane Arthy as Tom Hiddleston’s “wife.” If he did marry her… well, God bless, and I look forward to the Dargonfly Apocalypse and our soon-to-be Dragonfly Overlord. Let him have a personal life, I’m just saying. You can be a fan and want good things for him without needing to know every single thing about his romantic life. She’s probably just his girlfriend (not his wife) anyway.

Kate Upton: ‘I wish I had smaller boobs every day of my life’

Kate Upton

Kate Upton is famous for her figure, particularly her rack. Men love her enormous assets, and women (many of them, anyway) love that Kate is bringing a slightly fuller figure to fashion magazines. Kate hasn’t ever said much about her own rack — until now, what really needed to be said? Now she’s complaining a little about the assets that made her famous. Kate reveals that she’s always wanted smaller ones. Every day of her life, she’s wanted to wear spaghetti straps without busting out. She drops the “grass is always greener” cliché, but it’s true! Most women that I’ve talked to would prefer to have the opposite of their given chest size. Kate appreciates what her rack has done for her career, but she’d still like to take them off after work. If only that was possible:

They’re two of the biggest stars in fashion, double-billing on the covers of Sports Illustrated, Vogue and Vanity Fair and lusted over by countless admirers – still, Kate Upton can’t stand them.

“I wish I had smaller boobs every day of my life as I love to wear spaghetti tops braless or go for the smallest bikini designs,” the supermodel and actress tells Britain’s The Sun on Sunday.

“Every single day, I’m like, ‘Oh, man, it would be so much easier,’ especially if people didn’t constantly bring them up,” she confesses of her two biggest assets.

At least twice a day she wishes she were smaller up top, Upton, 21, admits. “But the grass is always greener, as they say!”

If only they were a little more like . . . earrings, the covergirl muses of her natural-born 34-D’s.

“If I could just take them off like they were clip-ons.”

Upton is making her “serious” acting debut with the upcoming The Other Woman, and she cites Cameron Diaz as possessing the ideal physique.

“In my eyes, Cameron Diaz has the perfect figure,” she gushed.

In the film, which opens April 25, Upton, Diaz and Leslie Mann play three women who bond over a plot to take revenge on one man who cheated on them all.

And while Mann, 42, plays a grounded, devoted housewife and Diaz, 41, plays a tough Manhattan lawyer, Upton plays a flirty, ditzy blonde.

It’s not typecasting, insists Upton, who has already won rave reviews for her intelligence and acting chops from her much older co-stars.

“I think it’s funny to act like a dumb blonde. I know that’s not the case so why not play on it?” she tells The Sun.

“But I actually don’t look at my character as dumb,” Upton adds. “I think of her as young and naive, like I was once.”

[From Page Six]

Like it or not, Kate’s livelihood is directly tied to her chest size. She’s made her name upon her glorious rack, so it must be bittersweet for her to wage a daily mental battle with their existence. Maybe she can save up enough money for retirement over the years and then get a reduction? If that’s what she wants. She could change her mind before then.

Kate’s attitude about her girls is not unusual. Since we’re on the subject, I have an odd, chest-related predicament of my own. My rack is the first place that I lose or gain weight. They’ve been a 38D, a 36B, and everywhere in between. They fluctuate in size depending on hormones, stress, or where I’m at in a training cycle. It sucks to have to keep a variety of bras and tops on hand depending on what these damn things want to do. Please tell me about your own size-related boob problems and make me feel better.

Jared Leto on living in the South: ‘We escaped early on… it’s very oppressive’

leto1

Jared Leto and his brother Shannon cover the new issue of FourTwoNine Magazine, which I have never seen nor heard of, but here you are. I’m really not into either brother, but I do prefer Jared to Shannon. Shannon has the eyes of a creepster. I was going to ignore this, but I read some quotes from the interview and Jared’s post-Oscar holiday from criticism is short-lived.

Jared Leto is once again proving how friggin’ cool he is. In the new issue of FourTwoNine magazine, the Dallas Buyers Club Oscar winner says he doesn’t mind if you called him “queer.”

When the mag’s editor-in-chief Kevin Sessums mentions that some of his “straight friends have begun to define themselves as queer without it being a sexual term but a cultural one,” he goes on to ask Leto and his brother Shannon Leto if they’d be “averse” to having the same label.

“I wouldn’t care,” Shannon said. Jared added, “I don’t think we’d care at all. We certainly identify with people who are different.”

That differentness is one of the reasons the Leto brothers’ band, 30 Seconds to Mars, has attracted such a large LGBT fan base.

“I got a note from a kid yesterday,” Jared said. “We were signing a thousand CDs after a show. If you looked at him, he looked like any young kid maybe in twelfth grade or eleventh grade who’d be on the baseball team or something. A nice looking kid. He handed me a note and it said, ‘I just want to say thanks so much for the music. It’s helped me in many ways–especially with coming out this year to my family.’”

And to think the Letos were born in the not-always LGBT-friendly south.

“We escaped early on,” Jared said. “It’s very oppressive.” He further explained, “We would go back for the summers and stay with our grandmother, though. So the culture was always there that we returned to. We moved around every couple of years growing up. Way up to north Massachusetts. Everywhere. But no matter where we were it was a very creative environment around artists. That is obviously an important reason that Shannon and I are pursuing the path that we are now.”

Is the South oppressive? I’ve lived in the South for most of my life, and I’ve become increasingly sensitive to the prevalent anti-Southern bias exhibited by so many Hollywood-types (even those who were born in the South). The question I tend to ask is this: is the South any more or less oppressive than other parts of the country? And I really don’t think so. There are bigots in Manhattan. There are gay-bashers in Los Angeles. There are corrupt cops in every city. There will always be some neighbor or some crazy family member who has some asinine conspiracy theory about the government, no matter where you live.

I’m also including some photos of Jared at Coachella this weekend. He doesn’t look as douchebaggy as some of the dudes there, but then again… Jared is 43 years old. Maybe he’s too old for this crap?

Prince Harry took Cressida Bonas on a skiing holiday at a Kazakhstan chalet

Well well well. Looks like Prince William and Duchess Kate aren’t the only ones who like to jet off for romantic holidays for no real reason. Prince Harry has scooped up his official girlfriend Cressida Bonas and taken her away from the trauma of a 9-to-5 job so that they could have a nice little ski holiday in… Kazakhstan? Seriously.

Prince Harry took girlfriend Cressida Bonas on a skiing trip in Kazakhstan. Our favourite royal was after treating his gal to a romantic break, but instead of opting for tropical Aruba or sightseeing in Paris, he took her to the home of Borat AKA Kazakhstan.

According to The Sun, the couple flew to the former Soviet republic, where they stayed at a chalet in a billionaire’s resort. While there’s no news from the Palace on the pair’s romantic holiday, Harry and Cressy – who are thought to be expert skiers – flew out to Kazakhstan on a swanky private jet and landed in the Shymbulak resort by helicopter.

The Daily Mail reports the couple may have chosen their skiing destination with help from Prince Andrew – who sold his home in Ascot to a tycoon from Kazakhstan and is a frequent guest of the country’s president Nursultan Nazarbayev.

The holiday comes after Harry invited Cressida to co-host a formal dinner at St James’ Palace to honour war heroes. Harry is the patron of the Walking With The Wounded charity, and met many of the upcoming dinner guests during his 208-mile trek to the South Pole before Christmas.

A source told The Mail on Sunday: “Harry has told Cressida she is welcome to come along. Harry and his mates went through thick and thin together, so the dinner party will be a really relaxed and jovial affair. But there is no doubt that it will be a Royal banquet, albeit a private one.”

Does anyone else get the feeling that Prince Andrew is extremely shady? I would not go anywhere Andrew recommended. Anyway, I was trying to think back to figure out when Harry was last on vacation… and I can’t remember. Maybe last summer? He was in the South Pole just before Christmas, but that was NOT a vacation, it was an event for Walking with the Wounded. So, will Harry and Cressy get a pass for this vacation? Or does this prove that they are just like William and Kate? I’ll tell you what I want to know: did Cressy get this time off from work? Does she have some sort of “I’m dating a prince and I need time off for a vacation every other month” situation with her employer, like Kate had when she tried to work a real job for a few months back in 2006?
