Every day a multitude of stars wander through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with staff members. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that's why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.
Warning: This post could make those Thanksgiving leftovers sitting pretty in your tummy turn sour fast. Because here is the guy we're all thankful for (Ryan Gosling, obviously) out for a jaunty Turkey Day stroll in New York with...his lady love Eva Mendes. Didn't he know we reserved a spot for him at the feasting table, nestled in between us and Aunt Bertha? Apparently not! We'll give you a pass just this once, Ryan, since you're Canadian and all. (But don't you dare blow it next year!)
The duo can be seen next (on the big screen, at least) in the crime thriller "The Place Beyond the Pines," set for a limited release on March 29, 2013.
With a whole year to wait before "Catching Fire" hits theaters, "Hunger Games" fans are understandably starving for even the teensiest smidge of info about what's going on with the next installment of their favorite franchise—particularly when it comes to the on-screen stylings of one Sam Claflin, who'll be playing the role of District 4 hottie Finnick Odair. And thankfully, Jennifer Lawrence was willing to take a moment on the red carpet of the premiere for her new film, "Silver Linings Playbook," to throw us a bone.
Only, she says, she's really not the one to ask about Sam's performance: "I am not the right person to answer this question," she said, laughing.
So, who should we be asking?
Her answer: "Josh Hutcherson!"
Yep, that's right: apparently, Sam and Josh have taken their working relationship to the next level...and then some.
"They are in love," Jennifer said. "It's a full-blown bromance, and it's really bromantic and adorable. It's really cute."
With this month marking the release of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," the media landscape has turned into a markedly more bloodthirsty version of Old MacDonald's famous farm—with sparkly members of the Cullen family popping up here, there and everywhere. (Insert your E-I-E-I-O refrain here.) And few of the cast members from the saga have been more ubiquitous than the Ashley Greene, whose supporting role as Alice has given her just as much star status as if she'd headlined the films along with Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. Her latest appearance? It's in Seventeen, where her photo shoot showcased a series of fun, colorful looks and featured the actress perched on a carousel! And inside, she happily dished with her interviewer on relationship drama, her evolving style sense and bidding good old Alice Cullen a fond farewell.
Of course, the relationship drama everyone's really wondering about isn't Ashley's; the much-discussed saga of Robsten is still on everyone's mind, but Ashley was characteristically cagey about any mention of her costars' romance. The one thing she would say? That she hopes the whirlwind of gossip surrounding the film's headliners won't ruin the franchise for the people to whom it matters most: the fans.
Depending upon how closely you've been keeping tabs on the pulse of the celebrity singles scene, you may have already heard the sad news that Selena Gomez has officially called it quits on her romance with boy-toy Justin Bieber... and okay depending on how big a Belieber you are, you may not agree with us on the "sad" part. (Just take it easy, would-be rebounds; the latest reports from the breakup's frontlines say that Biebs is still looking to woo her back.)
But while we wait for the final word from the gossip mill on whether their relationship is just on a break or actually broke, let's take a look back at the way they were! Just click through for a gallery of pretty little pictures of Selena and Justin from less-troubled times: smooching at a basketball game, canoodling on the red carpet, sharing the stage at the VMAs. Because whether you're heartbroken for their heartbreak, or secretly celebrating the newly single status of one or the other of these crazy kids, you've gotta admit: They made a pretty cute couple.
Kristen Stewart said it best when she gushed that Jennifer Lawrence is "so cool." Seriously: The woman is gorgeous, a great actress and down to earth and always seems like she's the most fun to be around. What more could we want in a role model?
As if our girl crush on "The Hunger Games" star wasn't big enough, JLaw opened up in the new issue of Elle about everything from dieting to watching beach volleyball with boyfriend Nicholas Hoult. Apparently they've really got a thing for ladies' behinds.
"[My boyfriend] is honestly my best friend, and hopefully I’m his best friend too. He’s my favorite person to be around and makes me laugh harder than anybody," she explained. "We can eat Cheetos and watch beach volleyball and we turn into two perverted Homer Simpsons, like, ‘Oh, she’s got a nice ass.’ I never thought we’d have such different opinions on asses."
On the heels of the release of her new album, Red, it seems like Taylor Swift is everywhere at once these days—and most recently, she's scored a sultry appearance on the cover of the December issue of Cosmopolitan! Where, thanks to the vagaries of magazine lead times, she's standing next to the words "Crazy for a Kennedy!"... even though, as of last week, she and RFK's grandson Conor are officially dunzo. But that's okay! Because really, Taylor's musings on love and relationships are all the more interesting coming as they are in the wake of a real-time breakup. For instance: Those looking for a reason behind her split with the Kennedy kid might be interested in this little tidbit from Taylor about what she considers a relationship deal breaker:
"I can’t deal with someone wanting to take a relationship backward or needing space or cheating on you," she said. "It’s a conscious thing: it’s a common-sense thing...I just don’t ever want to end up in a relationship that isn’t fair ever again."
Love is in the air for some in Hollywood while it hasn’t quite busted through the atmosphere for others. With so many rumors floating around about who is dating whom, it's time we get to the bottom of La La Land's most-talked-about relationships. (Spoiler alert: It’s not ending well for everyone.) Le sigh!
"Chicago Fire" star Taylor Kinney is dishing on his relationship with the one and only Lady Gaga, noting that despite her eccentric pop-star persona, dating her isn’t as wacky as it would seem. He told the "Today" show, "It’s normal, if you will, in that respect."
Taylor and Gaga began dating last year, after they met on the set of her "You and I" video, and it’s been smooth sailing ever since. In fact, the former "Vampire Diaries" actor had this to add: "I’m a happy guy. I’m a lucky guy."
Despite being relatively expert predictors of which on-screen collaborations will result in real-life romantic entanglements (we called Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling like a boss, y'all), this one caught us by surprise: According to the gossip hounds at Page Six, "Spring Breakers" co-stars Ashley Benson and James Franco are an item.
The pair were seen holding hands at the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride last week, and an unnamed friend of one or the other celeb confirmed that they are, indeed, dating. It's an interesting matchup—he's 12 years older and a lot more eccentric than the "Pretty Little Liars" star—and somehow, we never saw it coming! Are we losing our touch?!
It is with a heavy heart that we type these words, you guys. A heavy, heavy heart, indeed. Justin Timberlake, light of our lives, fire of our loins, has officially tied the knot with longtime ladyfriend Jessica Biel.
The couple confirmed the news to People, saying in a statement: "It's great to be married, the ceremony was beautiful and it was so special to be surrounded by our family and friends."
Of course, this is lovely news for the happy newlyweds, and we wish them all the best. But let's be real: Justin's departure from the market leaves a giant, yawning void in our crush landscape that no one man could possibly fill. So, while he and the new Mrs. Timberlake enjoy their honeymoon period, we'll be setting our sights on a new trio of celebs—so that no matter where or in which arm of the entertainment biz Justin's endeavors earned your adoration, you'll have a new boy toy to play with.
Are you ready for a Tuesday morning moment of "awwww"? Well, brace yo'self, because this one is downright precious. It's a clip from Emma Watson's appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" today, in which Ellen asked Emma which breed of boy she prefers—English, or American?—and Emma gave the world's most endearing explanation of the differences between the two. Namely:
"English guys are very well put together. They dress really well and they are very well mannered," she said. "But they're also very restrained. Usually, in the whole courting situation, I‘m used to being—first of all, ignored, for the first two months of the ritual. And then maybe they’ll acknowledge my presence. Then, they’ll probably be a little mean to me."
