So much HAWTNESS at the MTV Movie Awards last night. But I appreciate the misses too because at least those celebs are taking a fashion risk. Otherwise it’s just plain boring, right?
Peplum: Emma Stone & Charlize Theron
Both Emma Stone and Charlize Theron pulled off peplum looks. Theron wins by a thread because her striking red Lanvin dress complements her skin tone perfectly and is a little more fun for the MTV Movie Awards. But Stone won the trailblazer award so you know whatever look she touches is golden.
Vintage-inspired T’s: Wiz Khalifa
Wiz Khalifa wore a Joan Jett shirt (above) and sunglasses indoors because duh! I’m not sure if he’s wearing the top ironically but I NEED. It looks comfortable plus he’s paying respects to one of rock’s legends.
Sneakers: Kristen Stewart
K-Stew always steals my heart because she manages to be fashionable without sacrificing her comfort or individuality. Some old school designers might cringe (Sacrebleu!) at the sight of her sneakers but personally I think she manages to pull them off. Of course, she didn’t change into the sneakers until after the red carpet because her stylist would have died. Love the Guishem dress too.

Another reason to love Kristen Stewart: she says “screw you” to uncomfortable heels and wears worn out Nike trainers with her obligatory high fashion gowns instead. I know, somewhere a fashion editor is writhing on the ground asking “why?” but who cares? Girl rocked the dress anyway.
K-Stew wore a lacy black Marchesa gown to the premiere for her new film Snow White and the Huntsman, which also stars Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron. She managed to sneak behind a bush to change the sneakers for something more glamorous before the red carpet, but she was busted by photogs. On her way out of the premiere, she quickly changed to jeans and leather jacket for the after party.
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Charlize Theron hits it out of the park as she jokes about Michael Fassbender’s penis with finesse, and Rosie O’Donnell continues to fall from talk show grace, taking it out on her staff.
Jennifer Lawrence is killing The Hunger Games press tour
I’m not going to lie, lady’s an absolute stunner on the red carpet in this Calvin Klein dress. We’ve already raved about her self-deprecating humour, but I still have to ask, can we please be friends?
Charlize Theron jokes about Michael Fassbender’s penis
The Fassbender penis jokes aren’t over, according to Theron. Fassbender and Theron costar in June’s Prometheus, but she couldn’t help but give a shoutout to his full-frontal role in last year’s Shame. “Your penis was a revelation,” she quipped at a Human Rights Campaign gala. “I’m available to work with it any time.” Spoilers, Theron! I haven’t seen Shame yet!
Mila Kunis will be on a Craig Ferguson Scottish special
Kunis was in Glasglow, ready to be sucked into the Scottish Vacuum of Charm. She’ll be on a special episode of The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. She ranks fourth on my list of favourite guests with her comedic skills. It’s not low considering she’s right under Any Scottish Guest, Kristen Bell, and any cast member of Doctor Who.
Ray J is waiting to sell his sex tapes with Whitney Houston
A source told Star that Brandy’s little brother is just waiting to sell the many sex tapes he made with Whitney but Ray J denied the rumours to TMZ. I wish we could just push him into obscurity so I can continue to remember Houston as the amazing performer she was, not the dirtbags she was with. Remember, this is the guy that also made a sex tape with Kim Kardashian…
Ashton Kutcher first celebrity in space
He’ll be paying $200,000 for the trip into space with Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic, a.k.a. Rich People Vacations. While he gears up to leave Earth (yay!) and ruin the fantasy of The Great Beyond for sci-fi nerds everywhere (BOO!), I’ll be trying to twitter-trend #LanceBassinSpace. If Kutcher can do it, why can’t he?
Rosie O’Donnell is a TV tyrant
The Rosie Show, which airs on OWN, is tanking and Rosie’s taking it all out on the staff. The staff, who used to work for the great Oprah herself, are obviously not pleased. Instead of getting free cars, they’re being subjected to Rosie’s angry quacking.
1) The new trailer for Snow White and the Huntsman looks decidedly darker than Julia Roberts’ Mirror Mirror. Both are adaptations of the original Brothers Grimm fairytale but take a very different approach.
2) Charlize Theron takes the role of the evil queen and lives up to her “bitch” reputation. She recently joked that just like how Picasso went through his blue period, this is her “bitch period.”
3) The movie also stars Kristen Stewart as a badass Snow White. She seems more like a warrior than a doe-eyed Disney songbird.
4) The movie also features monsters and frightening demons. It’s more grown up than the cheery Mirror Mirror.
5) We get a quick glimpse of Sam Claflin (Prince William) planting a sloppy wet kiss on Snow. But Chris Hemsworth, who plays the Huntsman, is still our eye candy.
Snow White and the Huntsman
“Hey andPOP,” you tell us, “you’re posting so many videos by Jimmy Kimmel.”
Well, it’s because the late night host is on a roll. It must be nice that Kimmel has tons of celebrity friends that he can call up to put together these hilarious video compilations. Anyone who can get Meryl Streep to own a mustache and Matt Damon to grope his grape suit (and then cut him from the movie) is good in my books.
This trailer for “Movie: The Movie” is supposed to sell the most epic film in history. The A-list cast goes on: George Clooney, Colin Farrell, Samuel L. Jackson, Charlize Theron, Tom Hanks, Martin Scorsese, Emily Blunt, Jessica Biel, Jason Bateman, Chewbacca and many more. It also features every stereotypical plot and genre in movie history. Why see ten movies when you can get all the action in this one?
The Twilight saga hasn’t entirely finished yet and Kristen Stewart has already moved on to something else. Part one of Breaking Dawn doesn’t come out until next week, but fans can already see Stewart in action in a Disney remake.
Stewart, who’s famous for playing Bella in the vampire movies, is geared to play the lead role in the live-action remake Snow White and the Huntsman.
Entertainment Tonight posted an exclusive sneak peak of the trailer and footage of Stewart on set. The movie looks incredible. It’s always a sure hit to take an old animated movie and turn it into live action. Charlize Theron aces at portraying the evil queen and Kristin Stewart shows off both her acting and fighting chops in the remake. Apparently, she did a lot of her own stunts in the movie, proving she’s tough as nails.
The movie doesn’t come out until the new year but you can see a sneak peak posted below.
The rumour-mill has been flying with reports on Jessica Chastain being cast as the late Diana, Princess of Wales, in the upcoming biopic Caught in Flight.
If cast in the Oliver Hirschbiegel film, Chastain will play the late princess in a reenactment of the scandalous two-year alleged affair with Dr. Hasnat Khan, two years leading to her death.
Although nothing has been confirmed as of yet, Gossip Cop says this is quite exciting news.
Other actresses who have been rumored to portray the influential and loved princess in rivaling biopics include Keira Knightly, Scarlett Johansson, and Charlize Theron.
While Knightly has the natural British-royalty air to her personality, Theron would do Diana’s beauty justice. However, with the wide range of Chastain’s recent past projects (Tree of Life, Take Shelter), it seems that she might just be able to pull this one off. It will definitely be interesting to see which actress will succeed in portraying Princess Diana captivatingly.
The Diana-biopics aren’t the only royally-influenced project; a film centering on six months in 1962 in the life of the late actress-turned-princess Grace Kelly is in the works. However, no actress has been cast as the lovely Grace just yet. Let the speculations begin!
Us Magazine reveals the reason behind Ryan Reynolds and Charlize Theron’s split after two months of dating.
A source told the magazine that “he only wanted something casual, but she’s in a rush to settle down, have kids and start a family since she’s getting older.”
Lets not forget about the fact that both Theron and Reyolds are super busy and we all know how long-distance works out.
According to a friend of Theron, “they were hardly ever together anyway.”
Theron wasn’t too happy when Reynolds dumped her. “She knows deep down that it wouldn’t have worked, but she is pretty bummed out about it all,” said the source.
Who wouldn’t be bummed? Just look at him.
Lily Collins, daughter of hitmaker Phil Collins, has been cast as the princess in Snow White – Relativity Media’s upcoming update of the Grimm fairytale turned Disney classic, reports E Online.
The role of Prince Andrew Alcott, who traditionally awakens the princess from her poison-apple-induced sleep, went to Armie Hammer last week, and Julia Roberts is on board to play the evil Queen as well. Just days ago, The Lovely Bones star Saoirse Ronan had been rumoured to the role of Snow White, but Lily must have worked her fairytale magic, because here she is in the lead role.
The film is due in theaters June 29, 2012 and is directed by Tarsem Singh.
A competing, action-packed take on the fairy tale, Snow White and the Huntsman, will also be released on December 21, 2012 – starring Kristin Stewart as Snow White and Charlize Theron as the queen. Both films have big-named casts, so I wonder who will win the battle at the box office? I may be wrong here, but I’m assuming Stewart will be the poison apple to the ticket sales.
I’m really excited to see Julia Roberts in an evil role – she always plays the pretty girl-next-door, so it will be interesting to see her take on a different persona. Collins is a good choice as well, she’s so angelic and pure looking… well, at least compared to Stewart, she is.
But a princess is exactly what Stewart will play in her next film. According to Perez Hilton, producer Palak Patel confirmed via Twitter that Stewart will play the iconic Snow White in the film ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’. The film by Universal is a dark and gritty adaptation of the classic fairy tale Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, revolving around a huntsman who is ordered to kill Snow White but instead chooses to let her go and save her.
Charlize Theron and Viggo Mortensen are also rumoured to star in the film, Theron as the Evil Queen and Mortensen as the Huntsman, although both stars haven’t been officially confirmed.
I’m interested in how this film will turn out. I’m all for dark remakes of childhood fairytales, but this totally departs from the original plot to the point of it being totally unrecognizable. Unless seven midgets follow Kristen Stewart around throughout the entire film, how is this film even related to the original?
Stewart as Snow White is definitely an interesting choice, too. Snow White is usually portrayed as this regal, innocent, gentle woman – and Kristen Stewart is none of these things. She will either pull off some amazing acting or put her own dark and dreary take on the character. My guess is on the latter.
But my real beef with this news isn’t about Stewart, it’s the fact that I’m tired of remakes. Red Riding Hood, Alice in Wonderland, Beastly… when will this fairytale remake madness stop? I mean, I like the fact that they put dark spins on these tails, that part is interesting. But can’t Hollywood come up with some original story lines?
Try writing words on pieces of paper and picking out of a hat. For example, let’s say you pick “shoe” and “money” out of a hat, then you could make a movie about a magical shoe that leads you to a life of wealth and fortune. But, every time you put on that shoe, Ke$ha releases a new single. Then a story of decisions and consequences would occur, starring Jesse Eisenberg as a pondering young teen. See, it’s not that hard. Be original, Hollywood.
Ok ok, so it’s not “officially” an Alien prequel anymore (even though it really is). Nonetheless, the new cast members announced for Ridley Scott’s upcoming sci-fi film Prometheus are outta this world.
The film is set to star The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo actress Noomi Rapace, which has been confirmed for some time, but Perez Hilton is now reporting Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender, Idris Elba, Sean Harris, Scoot McNairy, and Kate Dickie will all be getting in on the intergalactic fun.
Scott, as per usual, has been very tight-lipped about the project, but did relay the following:
“I was insistent that the script not leak onto the internet, where it gets dissected out of context, which spoils it for everyone. It’s the story of creation, the gods and the man who stood against them. It’s not a small film. I’m using the giant James Bond 007 stage at Pinewood and six other sound stages to film it.”
Your move, James Cameron.
Charlize Theron has a new role – not in a movie, but for the United Nations.
The Oscar-winning actress has been named an Ambassador of Peace by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon.
“You have used your voice, compassion and special relationship with the public to create a better world,” the secretary general said in his announcement Friday.
Theron was recognized for her support of social issues, including the creation of a project aimed at promoting HIV/AIDS education in South Africa, where the now-American citizen was born and raised.
Her new role will focus on ending violence against women, a topic with special significance to the actress. When she was 15, she witnessed her mother fatally shoot her father in self-defence when he attacked her.
Theron will be officially appointed Monday in a ceremony in New York City. She is the UN’s 10th peace envoy, joining such well-known figures as George Clooney and Michael Douglas.
Theron won an Oscar for 2003′s “Monster,” and has since starred in “North Country,” “In The Valley of Elah” and “Hancock,” among others.
Both Charlize Theron and “Ugly Betty” cutie David Blue were robbed over the weekend.
The New York Post reported that Theron was out of town while her Hollywood home was burglarized. “No suspects were seen, and we don’t have a list property taken yet,” LAPD officer Sara Faden said.
Blue, who plays Cliff on “Ugly Betty,” however, was not as lucky as to be absent from the scene of the crime. He was mugged at gunpoint after the “Betty” Season 2 wrap party, also in Hollywood. Blue wrote about the experience in his
MySpace blog, saying he was very angry but glad he was able to keep a cool head in the moment.
“There’s a sad part of me that is just happy that I got away alive and that my friend wasn’t hurt. There’s another sad part of me that is happy they got me and not America Ferrera, Michael Urie, Judith Light or anybody else at the party with WAY more money than myself. There’s another sad part of me that is so angry that I just want to see these people put behind bars as soon as possible. It’s sad how quickly your life can be affected… and even more sad how angry a few people’s SAD choices can affect people’s lives.
“It bothers me that this was Hollywood. I’ve lived in New York, Astoria, Queens, Florida, Kentucky, Virginia, Texas, all over… and this crap happened in the heart of Hollywood near a MAJOR intersection. I’m just glad we were smart enough to hand over our money so quickly. Because I can tell you, even with a gun in my face, my first reaction was to nail this guy in the face with as many punches as I could muster… but instead I looked at my female friend and realized it’d be better to hand over my wallet and call the police.”
Blue later edited the entry, thanking fans for listening to him vent, and urging them to be careful on the streets.
Just 30 years old and still a newcomer to the acting world, Charlize Theron was given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Thursday.
The South African moved to Los Angeles about 10 years ago, and was spotted by a talent agent while yelling at a cashier.
She started out with under whelming roles in That Thing You Do and Mighty Joe Young, before getting her first real big break in The Cider House Rules.
She became an A-list star in 2003, with her Oscar-winning role in Monster.
Theron is a fantastic actress, but she has her whole career ahead of her still. Why would they give her the honour so early in her career?
Well look ahead two weeks to October 14, the day her latest film, North Country, comes out.
A little known fact about the Walk of Fame: it’s a sham. Stars are not voted on by an elite group of people, like they are with Canada’s Walk of Fame. In Hollywood, stars are bought for you. They cost a few thousand dollars each, but think of the great publicity you get.
Hey, I mentioned North Country’s release date, didn’t I?
