Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

James Franco Talks Monogamy, His Favorite Sexiest Movie and Social Media

james-franco

Let me just say, I love me some James Franco.

James Franco is featured in ELLE’s June ‘Cherchez La Femme’ discussing he talks monogamy, technology and what movie he finds sexy.

Check out the highlights from the interview below.

On finding Last Tango in Paris to be a very sexy movie:
“Brando is inevitably sexy. When he’s completely uninhibited both with what he does and what he says, then he reveals a being full of intelligence who moves like a dancer and speaks like a poet.”

On believing in monogamy:
“I mean, I believe in it if that’s what you want. There a lot to be gained from various scenarios. A certain kind of intimacy and trust. But it’s not to say that monogamy is necessarily the ultimate.”

On regretting a text message that he’s sent a woman:
“Um, yeah. I have to remind myself not to text when I’m angry. Don’t do any social networking when angry.”

Bella Thorne Basically Changed Her Boyfriend

June-July 2014 - Bella Thorne

Via Seventeen:

Bella Thorne appears on the cover of Seventeen’s June/July 2014 cover (on stands May 20th). For the actress, the next three months are all about trying new things. After finishing the final season of the Disney Channel’s hit show Shake It Up, this summer Thorne will star in her first major movie, Blended, alongside Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler. In addition, she will release her first album, continue working on a fiction series called Autumn Falls, and appear in ad campaigns for Candie’s and Neutrogena (she is the newest and youngest ever Neutrogena girl!).

In her interview with Seventeen, Thorne discusses her ambition, her relationship with boyfriend Tristan Klier, her love for Blended costar Drew Barrymore and more.

On her ambition: “I get my ambition from my father. [Editor’s note: he passed away when Bella was 9.] There was no stopping him; it didn’t matter what anybody said. For me, I feel like it’s a cool way to bring him into my life because he did great things in his life, and I want to emulate that.”

On her relationship with Shake It Up costar, Zendaya: “The truth is we are so different, there is no competition. And when people tried to compare us or turn us against each other, we’d just talk about it, and then everything was cool. We love each other.”

On her relationship with boyfriend, Tristan Klier: “Tristan was not a relationship guy before me. On our first date, he thought I was going to be just like the other girls he had met who would always give it up and kiss him right away…I waited six weeks – I had to make sure he was in it to win it.”

On Blended costar, Drew Barrymore: “Drew [Barrymore] is so positive and beautiful on the inside and out. On the set of Blended, she always had a smile and looked at the positive side of things. I learned from that, and I think other girls should too.”

Will Jennifer Lopez Return To American Idol Next Season?

Will Jennifer Lopez return to American Idol next season?

Is she or isn’t she coming back to the hit television show?

Via our friends at Extra TV:

Superstar Jennifer Lopez sat down with “Extra’s” Mario Lopez for an exclusive interview at the NUVO TV upfronts, where she opened up about whether she will return to “America Idol” next season.

Lopez said, “The plan is to all come back… you know me, I like to work on my schedule.” She added, “Everything has gone great this year. I know everybody’s like, ‘Are you coming back next year?’ Everybody wants to know about next year. I’m like, ‘Can we just finish this year first?’”

Jennifer loving this season. “The finale’s coming up, it’s been going great. We love each other, the chemistry is good, the ratings are climbing back up. It’s a good time. I love the show.”

The singer also talked about her new album, “A.K.A.” “If you listen to my other albums, there were always about love and it was always about the fairy tale and hoping for that and praying for that and after everything that happened to me in the past couple of years, I’ve realized so many things about myself and I grew up a lot… that is all reflected on this album, too.”

Lopez also revealed the inspiration behind her sexy album cover. “I’ve been on this kind of like ’90s supermodel, Versace thing… That’s kind of been my fashion inspiration. The top I’m actually wearing I think is from the ’90s in that picture, the red top. I mean, what there is of it.”

Lopez is not only the COO for Nuvo TV, she is also the co-executive producer of two new series for the network. “We have ‘Los Jets’ and ‘The Collective,’ which are two projects that we’re really, really proud of. It’s funny, when I watch ‘The Collective’ I kind of think of the early days of MTV. It s kind of a great underground, finding those artists that are making noise and are really interesting and different.”

She continued, “‘Los Jets’ is a really heartwarming underdog kind of story, but at the end of the day, with all of this social and political issues on top of it, it is also about the Latino culture.”

This Sunday, J.Lo becomes the first woman to receive the Billboard Music Icon Award. “I think it’s crazy, it’s surreal…I was very honored and humbled to be the first woman to get that award.”

Lopez will also be performing. “It’ll be my first performance of ‘First Love.’ I’m also performing with Pitbull that night. We’re going to do the World Cup song for the first time.”

House Of Cards Star Robin Wright Talks Getting Plastic Surgery, Her Relationship With Kevin Spacey

robin-wright1

House of Cards star Robin Wright smolders on the cover of the June/July 2014 issue of Town & Country, on newsstands May 20th. In her interview with the magazine, she opens up about the role that reignited her career, whether she’d consider getting plastic surgery, and even reminisces on her breakout role in the cult film favorite, The Princess Bride.

Check out the highlights from the magazine below.

On whether she and House of Cards co-star Kevin Spacey goof off on set:
“We do nothing but. We goof off like kids and get into riffs that no one else understands. We’re cracking up to the point where the crew has to wait. I’m sure it’s very annoying.”

robinwright

On her first time directing (the 10th episode of season two of House of Cards):
“I’ve been in this business almost 30 years, and I’m such a control freak. You’re sitting around knowing how a scene should be blocked or the direction an actor should be given, and biting your tongue. So the answer is, yes, I loved being in the driver’s seat. I honestly don’t want to act anymore.”

On considering plastic surgery:
“In Hollywood the pressure’s there. You better lift that face and pump those lips and hike those boobs! And I was like, ‘I don’t want to do that. I’m going to get older. I’m going to have wrinkles!’”

On the “wife and arm candy” roles she has been rejecting for 25 years:
“Hollywood is difficult to navigate if you have integrity, so I opted not to work if there wasn’t enough to do in a role, which doesn’t have to do with the role’s size. If there’s nothing for me to do as an actress, that’s frustrating… I’d rather go work at a menial labor job, where I can actually get my hands dirty.”

On auditioning for John Hughes films early in her career:
“It was always down to the wire between me and Molly Ringwald, and Molly always got the part.”

On her first film, cult favorite The Princess Bride, in which she played Princess Buttercup:
“It was my first film experience, and so you might say that I fully immersed myself in the role. I did not act. It was mostly telling myself, ‘Don’t be an idiot in front of Mandy Patinkin and Christopher Guest.’ And Cary [Elwes] was so good looking. I was convinced we were going to be married.”

Love this bish!

Candice Swanepoel Had a Plan (Kind Of) If She Failed At Modeling

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.

Charlize Theron Gushes About Boyfriend Sean Penn: ‘We Are Very Happy’

Even though you may find Charlize Theron and Sean Penn’s relationship a tad eccentric, this duo may not seem as different as you may think. And from the sounds of it, this pairing is definitely NOT a PR stunt.

Via Extra TV:

“Extra’s” Renee Bargh caught up with Charlize Theron at the premiere for her new movie, “A Million Ways To Die In The West.” Charlize looking stunning in Dior turning the premiere into date walking the red carpet with boyfriend Sean Penn and blushing when asked about their relationship. Renee saying, “So nice to see Sean here supporting you…You having a lot of fun?” Charlize giggling, “Yeah.” Renee, “You seem really happy.” Charlize, “I am very happy I will say that, I’m very happy. I’m not very good at talking about my private life, but we are very happy, yes .”

Theron also gushing over the other man in her life, her two-year-old son Jackson, saying he always notices when she is all dressed up, “ He definitely notices when I’m in a dress cause I don’t dresses in a lot of dresses so there’s always a little moment when he goes mama pretty.”

“A Million Ways To Die” hits theaters May 30th.

It sounds like she is in a good place!

Jay-Z and Beyonce and Solange Release Statement About Elevator Incident

spl752015-001

So by now, you have all heard about the Bey-Jay and Solange elevator incident. Well, finally after the said drama, Instagram photo deletions and the silent treatment from all parties, the trio is FINALLY speaking out. And the good news is, they are moving on and want you all to as well…anything to avoid a drama fest.

They released the following “joint” statement, “As a result of the public release of the elevator security footage from Monday, May 5th, there has been a great deal of speculation about what triggered the unfortunate incident. But the most important thing is that our family has worked through it. Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred. They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family.”

“The reports of Solange being intoxicated or displaying erratic behavior throughout that evening are simply false,” the statement continued. “At the end of the day families have problems and we’re no different. We love each other and above all we are family. We’ve put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same.”

Well, that’s good to know. I have a feeling there was something pretty major to happen that set Solange off though. Oh to be a fly on THAT wall.

Buffalo David Bitton announced today that it will partner with Kristen Stewart, for the third initiative of its “Blank Check Series,” a program which supports self-expression and the arts by partnering with today’s cultural innovators.

Stewart, who makes her directorial debut with the music video “Take Me to the South,” is a longtime friend of Sage Galesi, whose Nashville-based rock band, “Sage + the Saints” is releasing its self-titled album this October. The music video, which was shot in both Los Angeles and Nashville, was directed by Stewart and produced by Starlight Studios.

Kristen Stewart commented, “Working with Sage + The Saints for my directorial debut was a fantastic and rewarding experience. I’m extremely proud of what I and my co-creators at Starlight Studios have accomplished, and grateful for the Buffalo Blank Check Series for facilitating our creativity and artistic vision.”

The music video, directed by Stewart, follows Buffalo David Bitton’s “Blank Check Series” projects with acclaimed stylist Kate Young, as well as hip-hop duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. Kate Young designed a denim-inspired holiday installation at retail for Lord & Taylor, while Macklemore & Ryan Lewis chose to work with Buffalo David Bitton to film and produce a documentary, providing viewers with a behind-the-scenes glimpse at their first world-wide arena tour.

Dari Marder, chief marketing officer, Iconix Brand Group, Inc. commented, “We were thrilled to be able to support Kristen as she embarked on a new creative journey.” “It was exciting to watch her vision unfold as she brought the project to life,” she added.

Drew Barrymore Is Okay With Fatter Arms, Makes Time For Friends

drew-barrymore

A few keys to Drew Barrymore’s success: she works hard, treats strangers like friends, and treats friends like family. Redbook saw firsthand why it pays to be the nicest woman in Hollywood.

Check out the highlights from the interview below. I absolutely ADORE Drew!

Drew Barrymore on being surprised that her husband chose her instead of a long, tall Upper East Side lady:
“I would love to have long, thin arms, I really would but I don’t. I can run a company, so maybe I am just going to have fatter arms and run a company wearing sleeves? That is my balance; nobody gets to have it all. I would take wearing sleeves and running a company. Not that running a company is the key to happiness, but while I may not be tall and thin, I am capable. Will [being with me], it does surprise me and it doesn¹t surprise me. However, knowing his personality and what he finds humorous and attractive and appealing, I¹m like, ‘Okay, got it!'”

On raising her daughters to understand responsibility:
“I would really like to raise kids to do summer jobs and intern, and understand that if you are supposed to be somewhere at 3 oclock, you need to be there at 3 oclock.”

On making time for her girlfriends:
“I fight to carve out the time. My friends are such a priority because they were what I had for most of my life. We are really close. I wish we could play more often, but everyone is so busy it¹s insane. But to go over to each other’s houses on a Sunday to check-in, just get on the phone and talk: ‘How are you? Do you need anything?’ Really trying to be there is important. If I was ever in a bind, no one on the planet would have my back more than my friends.”

Drew on Adam Sandler, her co-star in Blended (in theaters May 2014):
“Some comedians are really dark in person, and that¹s heartbreaking. Adam is a genuinely nice, positive person. He doesn¹t have a mean-spiritedness to his comedy or to his nature. We both really care about goodness.”

And I’m not talking Whoopi Goldberg yo.

Model Chrissy Teigen looks fun and fearless on the cover of June Cosmopolitan, on newsstands nationwide May 6th. She wows on not one but three covers this month, and takes it all off in her spread, dipping her famous curves in a soapy bathtub as she comes clean about her romance with hubby John Legend. In her interview, she opens up about their first night together, the craziest place they’ve ever had sex, and taking her career to the next level.

Check out the highlights via Cosmo below:

On hooking up with John Legend on the set of his hit 2009 single “Stereo,” and building their relationship:
“I’m not going to lie. We hooked up. [When he went on tour] I left him be himself for a while. The worst thing you can do is try to lock someone like that down early on, then have them think, There’s so much more out there. I played it cool for a long time. Never once did I ask, ‘What are we?’ Marriage was never my goal, because I’ve never been very traditional. I was just happy to be with him.”

On PDA with her husband:
“We’re by no means freaky-deaky, but let’s just say, we’re open to things. We’re very okay with PDA. When we go to a restaurant, he loves when I wear a dress, so he can do some upper-thigh rubbing.”

On the craziest place she and her husband have had sex:
“We were on our way to Thailand to see my parents, flying commercial first-class. We were under a blanket. We weren’t even in one of those pod things. I feel like we should get a trophy for that.”

On making a name for herself:
“I got so lucky that I met Brooklyn Decker and she [hooked me up with] Sports Illustrated. I got so lucky that I met John, who propelled my career. I’m not delusional: that definitely helped.”

Aaron Carter Will Spend Rest of His Life Trying To Win Hilary Duff Back

aaroncarter

Aaron Carter recently declared his undying love for his ex Hilary Duff…all this after she announced her separation from her husband Mike Comrie.

Well apparently his Twitter love profession wasn’t just an attention seeking publicity stunt. He really DOES want Hilary back in his life.

He initially wrote, “I’ll spend the rest of my life trying to better myself to get back to her.”

In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, the 26-year-old says he “absolutely” still loves Hilary. He said, “I don’t know who she is today, she doesn’t know who I am today, but I would sweep her off her feet if I ever got a chance to again and fix what I did wrong.”

Not sure what went wrong, other than I’m pretty sure after all these years he still has it bad for her!

And so Aaron? This one is dedicated to you. Oh and good luck!

Let me just say that I wouldn’t mind seeing these two back together. Have you ever wanted an ex back after many years later?

#JLoFirstLove: Jennifer Lopez’s First Love Single Announced!

Jennifer Lopez may be holding Grumpy Cat in this photo, but she sure has nothing to be grumpy about. Leave that to the cat, right? Well, today it was just revealed that the pop Latin songstress is releasing a new single called “First Love”. #JLoFirstLove has been trending on Twitter and fans have been going cray talking about their excitement for the release.

The pop star dubbed the Max Martin-produced “First Love” as the next promotional single from her upcoming as-yet-untitled studio album. We are hearing that this new collection of songs will be released on June 17th.

J. Lo last released an album in 2010. My guess is she will once again use American Idol as a platform for promotion in one way or another.

Are you excited to hear J. Lo’s new song “First Love”?
