PETA’s worst dressed awards
Star Jones ReynoldsPETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has named its annual list of worst-dressed celebrities and this year, voluptuous US fur-loving newlywed Star Jones Reynolds’ “appetite for animal destruction” has landed her in the top spot. It?s a dishonour that gives her the dubious distinction of becoming the only big name to make PETA’s naughty list four years running. “With the number of dead animals she wore at her wedding, it looked more like a funeral,” the group snips. Star styled a white mink at her corporate-subsidised nuptials, with several of her bridesmaids and well-heeled guests making similarly hairy fashion statements.
Sure Cindy…Best comment against a celebrity
But surely more impressive than the list, is the comments made about bestowed on second place winner Cindy Crawford, who has denied an affiliation with PETA despite appearing in an “I’d rather go naked than wear fur” ad a decade ago. “With that big furry mole on her face, you’d think she’d be more sensitive to the plight of animals,” the group snarks. Cindy was condemned by PETA earlier this year when she signed on to pose in pelts for furrier Blackglama’s “What Becomes a Legend Most” campaign. Rounding out the list are Jennifer Lopez, who is hit with the dreaded simile, “The lives of the animals she wears are like her relationships: short and painful”, Susan Lucci (“Her hideous furs make Emmy’s biggest loser one of animals’ worst abusers”), and freshman Ashley Olsen, who is scolded, “Here’s a tip on adjusting to life at New York University: The Big Apple is not the Yukon – you don’t need to look like Bigfoot in order to fit in.” Those PETA supporters sure know how to win friends and influence people!
Mmmm can’t wait for George and Brad action!Oceans 12 rule the box offices
Ocean’s Twelve scored another major heist this weekend, taking No. 1 at the box office with a strong US$40.9 million opening. Although the reviews weren’t as favourable as for Ocean’s Eleven, Ocean’s Twelve pulled in more cash its first weekend. Eleven opened with US$38.1 million, and went on to make a massive US$183 million. “That ensemble cast is tough to beat,” says Paul Dergarabedian, president of Exhibitor Relations box office tracking firm. “They’ve assembled some of the biggest names in Hollywood, and audiences love it. The whole concept is very hip and cool, and it’s a one-stop shop for movie stars.” With stars such as George Clooney, Matt Damon and Julia Roberts, we?re all hanging out to see this one!
