Although he doesn't look particularly friendly in this picture, Kevin Kline was actually quite lovely in person. He was funny and personable and smoked while chatting with the fans. I've always wanted to meet Kevin; I was thrilled to get the chance this year.
So, at what point do I check myself into a Rehab for bath products (specifically lotions)? At this rate, I can moisturize an entire country with the products in my possession. The biggest question: Where would I dispose of them? It seems wasteful to throw them all away, but at the same time, there's no way I'm ever going to use it all up. For heaven's sake, I've still got over 20 bottles of Hello, Sugar! While I do still love it (years later, my obsession lives on), I don't see me using those when I'm 83 years old (then again, a sparkly lemon-scented senior citizen can't be a bad thing). Do you donate them to charity? Pass them out to homeless people? Regift half-used bottles (no, of course not - that would be a total FAIL)? Suggestions?
Hello and welcome to Sunday's edition of Celebrity Wrap Up. Despite all evidence to the contrary, Melissa George is, in fact, NOT a midget. Weird camera angle. And outfit. And hat.Who knew that one day Madonna would grow up and look prim and proper while her daughter looked like a regular grungy teen?Somewhere out there, Judy Jetson is naked.Did Jessica Alba think that her cute peacock dress would make up for the fact that a Flowbee cut her hair?
I think Gwyneth Paltrow purposely picks Gladiator shoes to somehow fug up her outfits. What other explanation could there be?
As this workweek (finally) comes to an end, I thought we'd revisit and introduce some of the weekly wins and fails that have arisen this week: Morgan Spurlock + Ian Ziering = WIN They are awesome and amazing.
Victoria's Secret Curl Hair Products = WIN
This is an actual screenshot of a news report that was advertised during the TV show V. Um.....Stupid people in the workplace = FAIL
Yesterday I was asked the most ridiculous question that it took everything out of me to respond without saying DUH. Seriously, how to some people even get dressed in the morning?Incest = FAIL This 72-year-old grandmother met her grandson and was immediately attracted to him. Since she didn't know him growing up, apparently it was OK to start a relationship with him and now they're expecting a baby from a surrogate. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?! How does not knowing someone as a child make it OK for incest in any stage? It makes my stomach turn.
Brick Oven = FAIL
Not only was our service piss poor at Brick Oven a few weeks ago, but they had NO RESPONSE to my complaint in person or via their website. Nice way to make your customers feel important, jerks.
I was so excited to see that Josh Duhamel was in a Sundance film this year. I couldn't wait to see if he showed up - especially if he brought the amazing Fergie Ferg herself. I met Josh first as he walked the red carpet. How can he look that delicious with a hat on? He's a dream come true. Yum.
So, I thought I'd finally join the rest of the free world and see what all the hype is about with Avatar. I'd been resisting seeing it for a really long time for a few reasons: I don't like people telling me how good something is because it somehow makes me instantly hate it; I'd heard a lot of people say it was a recycled plot (but isn't everything in Hollywood recycled these days?); and, basically, I thought it was just some movie about blue people. Admittedly (and listen closely because you won't hear me say this very often), I was wrong. Of course, the recycled plot is a fact (as shown above), but who cares. It was very well done and kept my attention the entire time. I really enjoyed it; far more than I thought I would. I am completely perplexed how The Hurt Locker won Best Picture because I pretty much hated that. I also watched Crazy Heart with Jeff Bridges and Maggie Gyllenhaal. Wow, now that was a great film, as well. Jeff Bridges totally deserved the Oscar for that. And Colin Farrell singing country music? Yes, please. The soundtrack was great - I might have to download it.
Hello and welcome to Saturday's edition of Celebrity Wrap Up. Fergie is so freaking cool. Who else could get away with a matchy matchy black leather outfit with spikes (including a matching purse)?Didn't Chynna used to be somewhat attractive? She looks like she just escaped from a mental institution.Wow, that is one....interesting earring/feather/distraction you've got going there, Carla. It makes me want to tug it.Did Kate Hudson wrap a sheet around her skirt and think she was good to go?
This is about the 158th picture I've seen of someone holding Knox on the balcony. They've got six kids - why is he the only one who gets to hang out like that? Isn't his twin sister Vivienne jealous?

It's no secret that I triple love Olivia Newton-John. She's amazing. She's beautiful. She's Sandy, for goodness sakes. I must've watched her music videa for "Physical" approximately 247 times and I sang "Twist of Fate" for my class talent show in fifth grade (there's even proof on tape....hopefully one that will never resurface). In fact, the very first movie I saw in a theater was Xanadu and I thought the seven sisters coming to life from the mural was the most amazing thing I'd ever seen (it's not hard to impress a seven-year-old).Olivia Newton-John is just the coolest thing ever. I can't help it. I want to grow up and be her. So, you can imagine my delight to learn that she'll be guest starring on Glee next week. Wahoo! She's also touring this summer with Colbie Caillat (which is an interesting little pairing).Still, my favorite part she ever played with Sandy on Grease. That movie rocks my world. And when she gets all sexy in the end? Wow. Where do I get one of those cat suits?Oh, look - here they are: Danny and Sandy 25 years later. Yikes. What the hell happened to Danny Zuko? He looks like he might've been captured by some aliens and forced to convert to their weird religion. Oh, wait....
In my crazed and sleep-deprived state last night, I started watching Crazy Heart on my iPhone. In honor of this, I thought we'd focus on one of the stars - Maggie Gyllenhaal (why does it always look like I'm spelling that wrong??). I met Maggie at Sundance when she was promoting her movie SherryBaby. She sat on the edge of the theater, so I was able to make my way over to her fairly easily.
Yesterday I had a pretty bad headache, but it was small potatoes compared to what I've got going on today. Sometime during the night my horrid headache blossomed into a Major Migraine - complete with nauseau, sensitivity to light, and general irritability (not a technical side effect, but it comes with it nonetheless). If you've never had a migraine, you can't entirely relate to my pain. Whenever someone asks, "How do you know if you've had a migraine?" I always respond with, "Trust me, you'd know." The best way for me to describe it would be that a normal headache is like going to the dentist - annoying and uncomfortable, but you'll live. A migraine, on the other hand, is like having a root canal. Without novocaine. For three days straight. This is how I attempted to sleep last night - clutching my head like it might fall off. Needless to say, I only got about three hours of sleep. It was so bad, in fact, that I actually considered going to the ER for some morphine or whatever they could give me to make my life tolerable. It's not much better now. Fail.
Hello and welcome to Friday's edition of Celebrity Wrap Up. Kate Hudson's costume is quite festive, no? Wait, what's that? It's not a costume? She was actually walking the red carpet dressed up as some sort of modern boxy Easter egg? My bad.
This is why I love Matt Damon - he just looks like an Everyman. When I met him he was wearing a hat just like this and was in a crowd of people; I didn't even know it was him.I read an article the other day that said for every day Brad Pitt doesn't shave his hideous beard, George Clooney will donate money to the charity of his choice. Crap. Knowing Brad and his do-gooding we'll have to look at that beard for the rest of his natural born life. Fail.
They could save the cheerleader, but not her hair, huh? Hayden does realize she's not even 20 yet, right? Perhaps she's trying to channel Madonna? Holy crap! Who put a bird's nest on J. Lo's head? Someone who hates her, obviously.
