“You are a fucking idiot, Owen Gleiberman. Good hire, Variety magazine!”
Just when we thought we couldn’t love Bridget Jones any more…
Oscars fashion round up
And the winner is… CharlizeClassy dresses in soft shades adorned with lavish beadwork were the winners at this year’s Academy Awards. From subtle peach and pale lemon to beautifully rich creams, the Oscars frocks were for the most part, tasteful and classic. Looking gorgeous in Tom Ford for Gucci, was best actress winner Charlize Theron. Topping off what is surely one of the best years in this young actress’s life, statuesque South African-born star was awarded the industry’s highest accolade for her portrayal as a serial killer in the film Monster.
Uma Thurman – maybe her shoes are really nice?Pale and interesting
Nicole Kidman looked divine in a pale green Chanel gown, and best supporting actress winner Renee Zellweger looked sleek in a simple white Carolina Herrera strapless frock. And while pastel shades and simple designs worked for some, one Hollywood dame didn’t quite pull the look off, looking pale and uninteresting in an unflattering ruffled, doily number. Uma Thurman – my Nan wants her toilet roll cover back! Rumour has it, she at least had the good sense to change into something else before attending the post-awards parties.
Naomi and Heath – a nuptial dress rehearsal?Retro glamour
The fashion of the night seemed to hark back to Hollywood’s Golden Age, with lots of classic Jean Harlow-eqsue 1930’s style hair-dos, soft curls and figure-hugging gowns. Best actress nominee Naomi Watts was no match for Charlize in the awards stakes, but looked every inch the winner in a flesh-toned Versace number covered in hundreds of sparkly crystals. Some stars bucked the trend for pretty pastels, including a youthful looking Catherine Zeta Jones opting for vibrant scarlet vintage Versace, to show off her fab post-baby bod.
Jude Law and SiennaAnd the men?
Johnny Depp was particularly charming to 13-year-old best supporting actress Keisha Castle-Hughes, even giving the star struck teen a kiss for good luck! But what was the story with his terrible hair? Wispy fringe and middle part – urgh! Jude Law looked ravishing, as usual and former best actor winner Adrien Brody looked smart in an Ermenegildo Zegna all black, slim fitting suit. Showing impeccable grooming, Adrien also freshened up with a quick burst of breath freshening spray after announcing Charlize Theron winner of best actress award. Who could forget his sensational acceptance pash with presenter Halle Berry at last year’s awards? What a charmer!
Zellweger: the butt of fat obsessed media
Renee Zellweger is sick and tired of all attention she has been receiving since packing on the pounds in preparation for the reprise of her role as everybody’s favourite singleton, Bridget Jones. The festively plump Ms Zellweger doesn’t see what all the fuss is about. She’s done the yo-yo weight thing before, porking up a treat for Bridget Jones’s Diary in 2001, then successfully slimmed back down for last year’s Chicago. This year, she’s plumped up again for Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, which is due out next year. “The first time I did it, I learned a lot. I realised the influence of living in a society that focuses so much on physicality has affected me,” Zellweger told Vogue magazine for its December issue. “When the film was coming out, the question I was asked the most was regarding my weight. And again it’s happening. I was followed around Heathrow (airport) by a guy who wanted to take a picture of my backside. I don’t understand the obsession.”
Gwynnie’s up the duff?
In recent days, it was revealed that Gwyneth Paltrow is expecting her first child to boyfriend Chris Martin of Coldplay. And news just to hand, New York Daily News has confirmed that Paltrow and Marin tied the knot last Friday in a secret ceremony in California. The wedding, far from all the anticipated three-ringed antics a wedding of such high profile people would usually created, was reportedly a very small, private ceremony in held in a hotel suite. The newlyweds have apparently jetted off to sunny Mexico for their honeymoon, successfully keeping the biggest day of their lives from the prying eyes of the paparazzi!
Twins for Geena Davis?
Oscar-winning actress Geena Davis, 47 is pregnant with twins, her publicist Samantha Mast announced. The actress and her surgeon-husband, Dr. Reza Jarrahy, 33, already have a daughter, Alizeh, who was born last April. Davis is said to be in good health and happily looking forward to the twins’ birth around In April 2004. The actress has spent the last year and a half “concentrating on being a mom,” but is scheduled for a guest appearance on Will & Grace shortly, Mast said. Good news for all those women whose biological clock is ticking so loudly they can?t think straight! Davis didn’t even have her first child till she was 45 and now twins at 47! Go Girl!?
Much to her distress, Renee Zellweger has to fatten up again to reprise her role as the festively plump Bridget Jones in Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason. But, despite reports to the contrary, she has not been scoffing truckloads of doughnuts to achieve her requisite pounds. “It’s really just math. I’ve been eating lots of really fattening food. I read that I’d been eating doughnuts, but they’re not really my thing,” Zellweger told the press at the premiere of Down With Love in London last Wednesday. Zellweger said she’s been working with a nutritionist who’s been feeding her healthy food with hidden fat. Breakfast includes four slices of toast and cream cheese. “That’s just the first course,” she said. “It’s a four-course breakfast. I don’t really think about it because I’m usually doing something else.” Now that sounds like our kinda diet!
Beyonc? loves Kylie’s knickers
Chart star Beyonce Knowles has revealed that she likes nothing more than squeezing her famous bum into Kylie Minogue’s underwear. Oooh err! Curvy Beyonce, who set pulses racing with her raunchy booty-shaking dance for hit Crazy In Love, said the Aussie songbird’s lingerie was among her favourites. The LoveKylie range launched by Minogue – herself famed for her pert behind – has already been endorsed by TV’s Sex And The City, which featured Charlotte wearing one of her bras. Talking about her favourite undies in an interview with the November issue of FHM magazine, Beyonce revealed they were “La Perla and LoveKylie”. “She actually sent all of us (in Destiny’s Child) some of her new line, which was very nice.” The curvaceous star also went on to reveal that her famous ?bum wiggling? is a talent she was born with! She advised wannabe booty-shakers: “Feel the music, you have to kind of let it take over. And step two is move, move your whole body. “But you know, I think you have to be born with it. When I shake my butt, I feel it in my soul.” Shake that booty sista!
