Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Anna Kendrick Talks New Role in Into The Woods and Ambition in Marie Claire

Anna Kendrick stuns on the cover of the December issue of Marie Claire! In her interview, the actress had a lot to talk about, including her upcoming role as Cinderella in musical film Into The Woods, as well as her ambition and need to take a break from filming.

Check out some of the highlights below!

On her role as Cinderella in Into the Woods: “The character is thoughtful and complicated. You see what happens after she marries the prince, when you start to face problems in seemingly perfect situations. The interesting thing about her is she overthinks things, she’s uncertain – we don’t see that in most versions. In a lot of ways, I think it’s this incredibly brave story. She’s neglected and abused her entire life she finally gets love and it’s not the kind of love she was looking for, and she stands up for herself.”

On taking a short break: “The whole going-movie-to-movie-to-movie thing, I’ve been living that way for three years. Like I need to be a person and, you know, maintain relationships.”

On insta-fame following her 2010 Oscar nomination: “It was insane. Like really groovy and exciting. [But] there was a lot of ‘Why me?’—that sort of thing.”

On the celebrity hacking scandal this fall: “I’m so infuriated on behalf of those girls. And bummed out that people feel like that’s something they can do.”

On having her looks scrutinized: “The most common thing that I get is, ‘Am I the only one who doesn’t think that Anna Kendrick is pretty?’ And you’re like, ‘No, you’re not the only one. Arguably, all of the boys in my high school agree with you.'”

On ambition: “Mostly it’s the fear that the wolves are always at your heels and you’re going to be tossed out into the street. If you grow up middle class, you just always feel like you’ve got to be working, because otherwise you won’t be able to pay the rent.”

You can check out the full cover story when the December issue hits newsstands on November 18!

Cameron Diaz Talks Being Fully Nude For A Film

Marie Claire_Nov 2014_Cameron Diaz 1

Cameron Diaz appears on the cover of Marie Claire’s November issue (on newsstands October 21). In the interview for the magazine, the actress talks about her role in Annie, going fully nude for a film and having kids. Check out the highlights below.

Via Marie Claire:

On her role in Annie: “It’s not very often you get to do a musical. Even though I was terrified of doing it, I kind of had to. The two things I’m most terrified of are heights and singing in front of people. I’ve jumped out of airplanes and scaled sides of cliffs – not to get over my fears, but to address them. I just felt like this is something that needed to be addressed. I cried uncontrollably. Everybody was so supportive and having fun with it because I was so pathetic, but the only way to get through scary things is to have a sense of humor about it.”

On appearing fully nude for a film: “People have seen my butt. I’ve shown the top of my butt, the bottom of my butt. I’m not opposed to doing nudity, as long as it’s part of the story. I’ll do whatever has to get done if it’s the right thing.”

On having children: “We live in a society where everyone has kids, so they want other people to have kids. There is this culture that says celebrities are supposed to be just like us, so people think, ‘I have children, why doesn’t she?’ But I’m not going to do something because it’s expected. If a family happens, then it happens. If children come to me, then I would do that, but I’m not someone who feels like she has to do something because it’s expected.”

Ariana Grande Was Never Like Her Nickelodeon Character

Marie Claire_Oct 2014_Ariana Grande 1

Ariana Grande appears on the cover of Marie Claire’s October issue (on newsstands September 23). Even as a little girl singing in the car, Ariana Grande had a big voice. At 14, ready for the music world that wasn’t quite ready for her, she took a detour with a Nickelodeon show or two. Now 21, with a hit second album, she’s gone from small screen to mega pop star — which, as we discover, was her plan all along.

Check out the highlights from the interview via Marie Claire:

On early ambitions: “I was 14 years old and ready to make an R&B album. I was like, ‘Where is that Mary J. Blige collab? Where is that Natasha Bedingfield writing session? Where is my session with India.Arie? I’m ready. Let’s go.’ I wrote this song called ‘Higher,’ and the lyrics were too sexual, too mature. And my mom was like, ‘This is a great song, but damn, you’re too young for this.’”

On hiding behind her Nickelodeon character: “People liked her and they accepted her and they thought that I was like her. So I used to pretend to be a little more like her than I actually was.”

On her first single, “Put Your Hearts Up,” tanking: “I was like, ‘Guys, there has to be a really distinct difference between me and my character.’ And we did that with ‘The Way.’ I dyed my hair back to brown. I made out with a rapper in the video. I made the point I wanted to make. And I was excited to do so after so many years of pretending to be somebody else in front of a lot of people.”

Zoe Saldaña Talks Relationships and Dream Roles in Marie Claire

Zoe Saldaña stunned on the cover of the August issue of Marie Claire, which is set to hit newsstands on July 22. In her feature interview, the Guardians of the Galaxy star opened up about her family, her husband, her thoughts on love and relationships, and her dream roles for her career.

Check out some of the highlights below!

On her relationship with husband Marco Perego: “I don’t do the ABCs. I do what my heart says, what my heart feels. So from the moment I met my husband, we were together. We knew.”

On the biggest thing she’s learned about relationships: “Not to settle. If you’re not happy with a person, leave. And wait until you find that one person who makes you feel good about yourself every single day and is not expecting you to change, but to grow.”

On disrespect: “I have been in relationships where a man has disrespected me, and I don’t need to be friends with that man anymore. I don’t want to be the one going, ‘I’m cool, because I’m friends with all my exes.’ There’s a reason why you’re called an ex. I crossed you off my list. Moving on. You cross a line, you need to know that you’re going to walk this earth knowing that there’s an individual who has no respect for you.”

On dream roles: “I would love to play Nefertiti or Cleopatra or the Queen of Sheba. We preserve more male history than we do female. We have to preserve it. No more complaining. We have to do it.”

On growing up in Dominican Republic: “I had many female bullies growing up who wanted us to be submissive and to follow and to kiss ass, and that’s the last thing any Saldana will ever do, honestly.”

Needless to say, from this short tidbit, readers can see that Zoe is definitely not the one to play with! She offered some wise advice in terms of relationships, as well. She’s not only a talented actress, but a strong person, who will speak her mind as she feels. Kudos to her for snagging this cover!

candace-swanepoel1

Victoria’s Secret supermodel Candice Swanepoel appears in Marie Claire’s June issue (on stands May 20th). In the photo shoot, she brings her boyish-meets-boho vibe to the shores of Miami. And in the interview she dishes on what it means to be a Victoria’s Secret Angel and what she would be doing if she would have failed at landing modeling gigs.

Here are the highlights via Marie Claire below:

Childhood hobby: “I studied ballet when I was growing up. It has helped a lot with modeling because I think about all parts of my body, from my fingers to my toes.”

If she weren’t a model: “I think I would have continued with ballet, or maybe I would have become a veterinarian.”

On being a Victoria’s Secret Angel: “It comes with a different kind of responsibility. It’s not just about posing for shoots. People know your name and your personality.”

Hidden talent: “I am very good at pretending that I am not nervous!”

I’m pretty sure there was no denying she’d be a successful model. Girlfriend is amazingly gorgeous.

Marie Claire Presents Hollywood’s “Fresh Faces” On May Cover

lupita

Hollywood’s “Fresh Faces” Lupita Nyong’o, Kate Mara, Emilia Clarke, Elizabeth Olsen and Elle Fanning, will all appear on their own cover of Marie Claire’s May issue (on newsstands April 22nd). These stunning women are having their moment – they all have a refreshingly unique take on the world and Marie Claire is proud to celebrate each of them and all they’ve accomplished thus far in the May issue of the magazine.

Check them out the fun covers of the “fresh faces” below:

Lupita Nyong’o

On being called gorgeous: “Being called gorgeous is not a bad thing! But at the same time, I don’t want to thrive on people’s opinions of me.”

On waiting for her category at awards shows: “I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. It’s not even about the outcome; it’s about the agony of the unknown. It’s like waiting for test results in a hospital.”

On this past year: “It was phenomenal. As brilliant as it was, onward ho. I hope that I will get to work soon. In due time, what I should do next and what I want to do next will reveal themselves. I am not in the business of trying to top this year – that’s virtually impossible. I’d have to be pronounced the queen of England or something.”

olsen

Elizabeth Olsen

On the lifestyle she wants to have: “I definitely know what kind of lifestyle I want to have. Some people recognize you for your work, not for being pictured going to clubs. So, I try and keep that kind of profile that people know you from your work and that’s it. There are some jobs that I’ve said no to, because I know what kind of attention they will bring. I choose not to have that specific kind of attention.”

On whether she’s the muse for her sisters’ [Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen] clothing line, Elizabeth and James: “God, no. I just try and see what they do and copy them like the rest of the world does.”

On whether the Olsen name is a boon or burden? “Everyone has their hurdle to get over, and if mine is that I have to [prove] I’ve earned my jobs, I’m OK with that. I’m in it for a ride, and I’m in it for the long run.”

emilia

Emilia Clarke

On the future: “Personally, I’d like as many children as I can pop out, I reckon. You come from a happy family; you want to create a happy family. And in the same breath, I’d like to be on stage at England’s National Theatre, doing Miller and Chekhov. Give me a Sam Mendes/Tennessee Williams combination – that would be glorious. And to be making some Oscar-worthy movies with Scorsese. I’m always looking for the hard road. That way, you remain interested and interesting. Hopefully.”

katemara

Kata Mara

On getting rid of her red hair: “I felt relieved getting rid of red – people in my family were saying, ‘Red hair is your identity – you’ll ruin it!’ But I’m an actor. I’d shave my head if the part called for it. I love morphing into someone different; it makes you wear makeup differently.”

fanning

Elle Fanning

On how she dresses: “I like to dress my age. You don’t want to look too old when you’re not, or too young when you’re not.”

I absolutely love all of these women! So Awesome!

Shailene Woodley Talks Her First Kiss, George Clooney and Being Single With Marie Claire

shailene-woodley

Divergent star Shailene Woodley covers the April issue of Marie Claire—on newsstands next Tuesday, March 25th. She looks so amazingly gorgeous! In the magazine interview, Shailene talks being single, her first kiss and George Clooney.

Check out the highlights below. (Via Our Friends at Marie Claire)

On being single: “I just haven’t met anyone where I was like, ‘Wow I could definitely see myself spending a season of my life with you.’ I don’t even know if humans are genetically made to be with one person forever.”

On teenagers at the forefront of entertainment culture: “I think there’s this big rise right now in giving teenagers the worth they have. For so long they were – and still are – depicted in movies and TV shows as codependent whiners or rich, beautiful, diamond-clad daughters or dumb cheerleader types. But teenagers are so smart. I was probably smarter as a 16-year-old than I am today. There is a zest for life that you have at that age that is so beautiful.”

On putting her teenage years behind her: “For the first time, I feel like I’m entering my womanhood. I’ve decided to take a few months off, just to see who I am as that woman in the world, because I’ve never been able to experience it outside of this industry.”

On no longer being self-conscious: “My whole life I’ve been so self-conscious about being skinny. And just recently I don’t care anymore. All insecurities are projected because of what you think others are saying about you, but they don’t really matter at all. My only real insecurities in high school were having such long legs and thick hair – things I’m so very grateful for now.”

On her first kiss: “I was the latest bloomer there ever was. I was still playing with Barbies at 14 and didn’t have my first kiss until 15-and-a-half. He had big, beautiful lips, and I was like, ‘I don’t know what I’m going to do with those.’”

On George Clooney: “He’s still one of my favorite human beings. The things he talks about in the press, like going to Africa, are about one-thirtieth of the things he does. My mom and George are probably the only two people I’ve ever met who are truly genuine givers.”

On public attention: “I don’t pay any attention to the fan thing, because I think it’s a very strange culture nowadays. People have always been fans of people, but I can’t relate to any of these girls or boys who scream. It’s idolizing someone you don’t know. None of these people know me…”

On social media: “The whole social media thing is just a little too weird for me…We’re all such narcissists, and that’s what social media caters to. Our society conditions us to be our own planets, which is great. Independent thinking is so important. But we expect everyone around us to be our moons.”

She is so wise beyond her years. Love her!

Kate Hudson, Janelle Monae Talk Neon Green Lips and Diddy

Kate Hudson and Janelle Monáe are featured in the March issue of Marie Claire (on newsstands now). Could these two women be anymore beautiful?!

katehudson

Kate is this month’s Beauty Icon and shares her look-fab secrets with readers and her thoughts on modern beauty.

KATE HUDSON:
“I’ll see someone with white eyebrows and neon-green lips and go, ‘Isn’t she amazing? My friends would probably be like, ‘No, she’s crazy,’ but it’s not in my nature to be judgmental.”

“When I was 18, I took my mom to a natural spa in Bali, and we ended up in these baths that were just filled with all of these flowers. It was insane. We had one of the biggest laughs we’ve ever had. It was like, ‘Uh, can I have some water with my flower petals?”

On wig pins: “It’s almost like a joke with my friends because they always see my hair in a high bun. I like to put it up with the big wig pins.”

On Egyptian Magic All Purpose skin cream: “My go-to skincare—I use it for everything.”

janelle-monae

Janelle is profiled as a “passionista,” women who are rewriting the rules of success, and forging killer careers on their own terms.

JANELLE MONÁE:

“The only training I had was calling ‘living-room training” [performing at home with her great-grandmother. “She would play these scary chords on the organ, and I would just sing and make up church songs.”

On Sean “Diddy” Combs: he serves mainly as her “professional slapper. He’s there to talk to any suits that dare to mess up the jam and the music.”

On her signature style which is a protest of sorts again the sexualization of female musicians: “There were no women who performed fully clothed – still to this day there aren’t. To me, that was a problem, to say, ‘If you want to be in the music industry, you need to be able to sell sex…I want to be in control of my body. I don’t ever want a man or woman to tell me to dress that way. I think it’s up to me.”

On outfit planning: “If I have to think about my outfit longer than, like, two minutes, I’ve waster time. Who wants to think about ‘What am I going to wear at this performance?’ I need to be focused on creating, changing the world.”

Kristen Stewart Talks Love, Fame, Press and Poetry In New Marie Claire Interview

kristenstewart

Kristen Stewart appears on the cover of Marie Claire’s March issue (on stands tomorrow). In the interview with Marie Claire, she discusses love, fame, press and poetry.

Highlights via Marie Claire:

On making choices based on what frightens her:
“Dude, I have no idea what I’m doing, and that’s kind of how I love it. I had no idea Twilight was going to be huge. Certain movies I’ve done I thought were going to be amazing did nothing. So it’s fun not having so much control. It’s kind of a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants lifestyle – it’s fun, but it’s scary as fuck. If it’s not scary, it’s usually – you kind of have to step back and go, ‘You’re probably making this decision because it’s right on paper.’ But unless you get that irking fear, it’s not right.”

On being thrown into the unknown:
“I really like being thrown into the unknown and then finding my way. I don’t want to show someone something. I want people to watch me find something.”

kristenstewart1

On falling in love:
“You don’t know who you will fall in love with. You just don’t. You don’t control it. Some people have certain things, like, ‘That’s what I’m going for,’ and I have a subjective version of that. I don’t pressure myself…If you fall in love with someone, you want to own them – but really, why would you want that? You want them to be what you love. I’m much too young to even have an answer for that question.”

On having children one day:
“I had it too good to not have that, too. If I were to put money on it, definitely, yeah. But you earn that, like, that’s so not here yet. I mean, at this point, I can’t tell you if I want to hang out on Saturday.”

On her M.O:
“I’m kind of, like, an extremist. I really don’t want to be working unless I’m bleeding it. And if I’m not working, then don’t ever try to make a plan with me.”

On being judged as a peril of fame:
“I stand by every mistake I’ve ever made, so judge away.”

On doing press to promote her latest projects:
“I have an embarrassing inability, seriously, of summoning fake energy…I’m just not very good on TV, and it’s not my main goal in life to get good at it. People are like, ‘She just can’t handle’ – for lack of a better word – ‘the spotlight’. No, actually, I can’t, and that is totally who I am. I love being an actor, but I’m the last person to want to have a birthday party. I don’t try to force it or turn it into something else or fabricate this personality…so I totally agree when people say I’m, like, the most awkward person.”

On her poetry:
“I don’t want to sound so fucking utterly pretentious…but after I write something, I go, ‘Holy fuck, that’s crazy.’ It’s the same thing with acting: If I do a good scene, I’m always like, ‘Whoa, that’s really dope.’”

Anyone else think her head looks awkward on the cover?

Katy Perry Talks New Album, Divorce From Russell Brand, Boyfriend John Mayer In New Marie Claire

katy-perry

Katy Perry appears on the cover of Marie Claire’s January issue (on stands December 17th). After her marriage flamed out, Perry thought her new album would be dark and brooding. Instead, she turned personal pain into professional triumph, and now prepares to tour with a message of rising from the ashes.

In her interview with Marie Claire, see discusses everything from her new album, to her dark hours following her split from Russell brand and her relationship with her parents and current boyfriend John Mayer.

On not slowing down: “I’m never going to be lazy, because there are 500 other people waiting in line for this position.”

On being vulnerable: “I feel like my secret magic trick that separates me from a lot of my peers is the bravery to be vulnerable and truthful and honest. I think you become more relatable when you’re vulnerable. When you try to market yourself like some supernatural figurine who can’t be fucked with, I always resort back to Scripture: ‘Pride comes before a fall.'”

On Prism, her new album: “I thought it was going to be a lot darker – acoustic or Fiona Apple-y. You know, a ‘hell hath no fury like a woman scorned’ vibe.”

On the dark hours following her split from ex-husband Russell Brand: “There were two weeks of my life after I found out the truth of my marriage where I was like, ‘OK. All right. I can’t feel this. This is too intense right now.’ I was, like, just eating Flamin’ Hot Cheetos and drinking, and that’s it.”

On her relationship with her parents: “People don’t understand that I have a great relationship with my parents – like, how that can exist. There isn’t any judgment. They don’t necessarily agree with everything I do, but I don’t necessarily agree with everything they do. They’re at peace with – they pray for me is what they do. They’re fascinated with the idea that they created someone who has this much attention on her. My parents are Republicans, and I’m not. They didn’t vote for Obama, but when I was asked to sign at the inauguration, they were like, ‘We can come.’ And I was like, ‘No, you can’t.’ They understood, but I was like, ‘How dare you?’ in a way.”

On practicing Transcendental Meditation: “the best thing I got out of my previous relationship, because it was introduced to me via my ex-husband.”

On her on-and-off relationship with boyfriend John Mayer: “I took a break from my boyfriend, not one that I wanted. It was like a splash of cold water to search inward on what was going on with me. That is what let me to this new awakening, this realizing, If I don’t do some self-love, I’m not going to be able to keep the love that I want. I still needed to deal with all of my ex-husband stuff. I hadn’t. It’s almost like if I kept talking about it, it would seem like I actually cared about it. I don’t.

katy-perry1

On having kids: “I’m definitely not there yet, and I can’t plan that far in advance. When I decide to have a family, I’ll just want to be Mom for a little bit.[Brand] really wanted me to have children, and I knew I wasn’t ready – I think it was a way of control. I think it was part of, If I have a kid, then I would have to sacrifice – I’d have to be home more. I really wanted to, but I knew I wasn’t ready for it. It wasn’t like, ‘Hey, let’s have a kid because we’re in love.”

On boyfriend John Mayer: “He’s just a fantastic partner. I’ve been a fan of his for such a long time. He’s got a brilliant, brilliant mind. It’s a rad, mature relationship.”

Jennifer Lawrence Says She’s Not Fond Of Celebrity

jenniferlawrence

Jennifer Lopez covers Marie Claire South Africa and gives a pretty awesome interview. Just when you thought you couldn’t love this girl anymore, she keeps on talking and saying cute things.

Check out the highlights from the interview below.

On her New Years Resolution:
“My New Year’s Resolution is to stand up for myself. It’s hard for me. Nobody wants to be disliked. You always want to be polite and be nice. I tried to find a balance in saying what I mean and still being nice. I can’t do it. I have this ‘okay’ attitude and everything. I end up allowing myself to get walked over and resenting it.”

On being a celebrity:
“Celebrity is such a simple predictable thing, I’m not in awe of it. It makes completes sense. You have a job where people recognize you and they think you are not human.”

On her body image:
“I’d rather look chubby on screen and like a person in real life.”

On her personal life:
“I don’t like going out that much. I’m kind of an old lady. After it’s 11, I’m like ‘Don’t these kids ever get tired?’ When I’m out, I think about my couch.”

Let’s file this interview so we can look at it five years from now and see if Jennifer Lawrence is still the same old G. Please, please PLEASE stay humble Jennifer.

Salma Hayek Sucks In The Chi Chis For Marie Claire’s @Work Issue

Salma Hayek puts away the hoohahs as best as Hayek can for the cover of Marie Claire’s May 2012 issue. And even though she keeps the chichis in check, that bosom is struggling to breathe. Resuscitation may be necessary, boys. Ok enough chi chi talk. We’re talking about Hayek, the businesswoman here.

Check out the highlights Hayek’s interview from the Marie Claire @Work issue.

ON PEOPLE WHO HAVE A HARD TIME ACCEPTING HER AS A BUSINESSWOMAN:

“Because I have a background in a different field, it can be hard to negotiate and make a good deal for myself. People always underestimate me. But if you stick around long enough, act out of conviction, and try to be honorable in everything you do, good things will come to you. I have seen karma work in this business.”

ON HER RICH HUSBAND, FRANCOIS-HENRI PINAULT:

“He’s the best thing that ever happened to me and my work. I was trying to figure out how to have a child on my own. I came to terms with saying, ‘[Love] might not happen, and I have to be OK with that.’ Then someone came along whom I never would have pictured or thought I would have wanted; he was completely out of my box. Even though I was not looking, I was present and I was open. I am the luckiest person I know.”

ON ACTING NOT BEING EVERYTHING TO HER:

“What once was an expression of who I was – acting – also became my hiding place. But now I don’t depend on it so much for my happiness or my identity. And since it’s not my priority, I am doing the best work I’ve ever done.”
