In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, there’s two engagements: one real, the other just a maybe.
HIT: Vanessa Hudgens gained 15 pounds for role in Gimme Shelter
I’ve seen recent pictures of her (and old ones) and I must say, she doesn’t look any different. I wish an extra 15 pounds looked that good on me… She also chopped off her hair for the movie, so kudos to her for going all the way for a role!
MISS: Kristen Stewart to star in movie with Jennifer Lawrence’s boyfriend Nicholas Hoult
Jennifer Lawrence apparently read for the lead role in the upcoming romantic film Equals but apparently couldn’t see herself in it. Looks like Kristen Stewart can as she’s snagged the lead and will star opposite JLaw’s real-life boyfriend, Nicholas Hoult. We all remember when Kristen Stewart fell for that cheating asshole of a director, right? We just hope she can keep her feelings for Nick platonic off-camera because we’re still not over Nick and Jenn finally getting back together.
HIT: Zac Efron writes a cute letter to a fan
Zac got the chance to meet one of his biggest fans, who apparently paid him a huge compliment. She made such a huge impression on him as he shared this cuter than cute photo and the following caption: “@Curbiekoo, I have so much more I want to say. And I will—when I find the words. But I’ll start here—When you stood up, with such strength, and sincerity and gave me perhaps the nicest compliment I’ve been paid…it meant so much more than that to me.”
MISS: Oscar snubs
While we are thrilled for the many actors, actresses, films and more that got nominated for this year’s Academy Awards, we can’t help but feel sorry for a few who got snubbed. Here are a few:
Spike Jonze should have been nominated for Best Director – Her.
Joaquin Phoenix should have been nominated for Best Actor – Her.
Oprah Winfrey should have been nominated for Best Supporting Actress – Lee Daniels’ The Butler.
Blackfish should have been nominated for Best Documentary Feature.
There are so many more – what a shame!
HIT: Ashlee Simpson is engaged to Evan Ross
Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross have been friends for over a decade, but now the happy couple is engaged and Ashlee’s ring… well, that’s the real hit. It’s so unique and vintage. LOVE IT!
MISS: Johnny Depp MIGHT be engaged to Amber Heard
Rumours are swirling that Amber Heard and Johnny Depp are engaged. It’s only a miss because we don’t actually know for sure! While Amber was recently spotted trying to cover her hand/ring finger while leaving a restaurant, they might not be quite ready to officially announce the news. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
