If fans weren't already aware that "Spring Breakers"—starring Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Benson—isn't a PG-rated teen flick about tanning on the beach and falling in love with the sensitive lifeguard, these photos from Interview magazine will surely clear that up. The film, directed by Harmony Korine, is gritty and violent and has these formerly innocent starlets running around in bikinis, robbing restaurants and plotting murders.
"Spring Breakers" appears to be squeaky clean fun thanks to Selena's and Vanessa's Disney roots and Ashley's role in "Pretty Little Liars" on ABC Family. But Selena told Interview that departing from their stereotypical characters is why she chose this film.
Chloe Moretz is undoubtedly one of this year's hottest young actresses. Her latest film, "Dark Shadows," starring Johnny Depp, hits theaters on May 11; she recently landed a huge role playing the title character in "Carrie" and she's gracing the cover of Seventeen magazine's May issue.
"I'm incredibly excited to be on the cover of Seventeen magazine," the actress said. "It's probably one of the biggest things I've ever done because I've been reading this magazine since I was a little girl, so to be able to be on something that I grew up reading—and still do read—is pretty amazing."
Speaking of, Seventeen is hosting their second annual Pretty Amazing cover contest. It's open to all the talented, teenage girls in America who have an inspirational story to tell. And though she's an accomplished actress, it's not fame that Chloe said makes an amazing person.
Groovy baby! "Twilight" star Kristen Stewart covers the June issue of Elle UK looking every inch the '60s bombshell in a curve-hugging Jill Sander ensemble and sleek bob.
The shoot took place in L.A. in March and is the second KStew has done for the British pub.
The actress is getting plenty of period-piece practice beyond the pages of fashion mags too. There's her turn as the fairest of them all in the upcoming "Snow White and the Huntsman," which opens June 1. But before she slays in her suit of armor, Kristen will get with the Beat in "On the Road," which will compete at this year's Cannes Film Festival in May. Based on the semi-autobiographical novel by Jack Kerouac, the adaptation follows a group of friends on a cross-country trek during the jazz- and drug-fueled '50s.
If you're a subscriber to Marie Claire, you may want to start keeping your hipster boyfriend away from the mailbox until the next issue arrives—because the upcoming cover girl is none other than indie megacrush object Zooey Deschanel. (And if you don't do that? Well, don't say we didn't warn you when the mag goes missing and then turns up weeks later covered in man drool.) Zooey is gazing out from beneath her trademark blunt bangs on the front of the May issue, and inside, she's got a few things to say about her current career, her past life as a fat kid and her inescapable reputation as a sexy weirdo.
The bad news: If you're looking for some insights into how Zooey became the poster girl for all things adorably quirky, she's as mystified by it as anyone else.
As the erstwhile sweetheart of "The Hills," Lauren Conrad seemed to have a knack for getting caught in the middle of drama—despite rarely being the cause of it. Now she's turning the tables: In her new book, "The Fame Game," LC writes from the perspective of the bad girl. Her inspiration? The people she knows in Hollywood who love to create controversy.
"I knew people who called the paparazzi on themselves! Their point of view is, 'They're going to photograph me anyway, and this way I get paid half of what they make.' I could never bring myself to do it, but it was kind of fun to write from that point of view," Lauren told Glamour for their May issue.

Do you think "Hunger Games" star Jennifer Lawrence is taking applications for a best friend? Ever since she started press rounds for her role as Katniss Everdeen in the box-office blockbuster, we've thought she seemed like the most down-to-earth, fun actress around. Whether she's telling Glamour magazine about how she began raiding the mini-bar or "Chelsea Lately" about her brothers calling her ugly (yeah, right!), Jennifer leaves quite the impression on her audience.
In the latest issue of Rolling Stone (on newsstands March 30), her first words when she met the writer were, "I have to pee so bad." (Amazing, right?!) And she made equally intriguing first impressions on her "Hunger Games" cast mates, according to the cover story.
There's no non-weird way to say this, so we're just gonna get it over with:Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson are cannibals.
Or at least, that's what they tell us—among other revelations from their exclusive sit-down for Josh Horowitz's "Yes/No Show" on MTV News' After Hours. Jen and Josh stopped by to promote the soon-to-be-released "Hunger Games," where they offered one-word answers to questions of all sorts and earned the distinction of being possibly the most easygoing guests ever to take on the challenge. (Seriously, they say yes to EVERYTHING.) So please, scout the video to see how they feel about nicknames, survival skills and Josh's seductive qualities as compared with Robert Pattinson...and then stick around for some extras, because we are blowing up with a sudden influx of "Hunger Games"-related info.
Yep, you heard us: It's a veritable cascade of exclusive interviews, new production stills and even a personal message from Suzanne Collins herself! And while some folks might insist on savoring this surplus of awesomeness by dishing it out in tiny little pieces, the better to make it last...well, that would require a level of self-control that we just don't have. So instead, here's the whole enchilada: a roundup of everything (and it's MANY things) that's late and great in "Hunger Games" news today.
Glamour magazine's long-awaited issue honoring the 25 hottest celebrities of 2012 is finally here, and the No. 1 cover girl should be no surprise: It's the arrow-slinging star of "The Hunger Games," Jennifer Lawrence! (Still sporting her brunette dye job and one seriously sparkly top. Yow.) And while some of our other lady favorites made this list of the top Hollywood heavyweights—including the adorable Emma Stone and the ubiquitous Rooney Mara—it's Jennifer's interview that caught our eye today. Especially the part where (get ready to gasp really loud) she almost didn't take the role that we all can't wait to see her in.
"I gave myself three days," she said of being offered the role of Katniss. "I knew from reading the books that I loved 'The Hunger Games.' I just didn’t know if it was worth changing my life for. I’m at a peaceful place right now. The people who used to ignore me at parties, now they’re nice to me and kissing my ass. But nobody’s staked outside my house. I wanted to make sure that when I said yes, I wouldn’t regret it. And I don’t regret it. I would have said no because I was scared, and then I would have been that bitter actress telling my grandkids, ‘I’m the one that turned it down.'"
After getting a load of this week's Entertainment Weekly cover series featuring "Vampire Diaries" stars Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder, we've suddenly realized: love triangles are so passe. And from now on, we'd like to skip the boring geometric metaphors and instead take all our romantic conflicts in sandwich form. Preferably made with two hunky slices of undead dude-bread. Because daaaaaaaaaamn. We want a manwich, please!
Of course, this delicious cover (and its similarly sexy compatriots, featuring Nina posing solo with each guy) isn't just eye candy; it's also a not-so-subtle hint about the difficult decision that the torn-between-two-lovers Elena will have to make as she contemplates her entanglement with Damon. ...No, wait, Stefan! ...No, wait, ugh, no, don't make her choose!
It may not afford a trip to Disney World or a little gold man, but People magazine's annual Sexiest Man Alive proceedings are a contentious contest, nonetheless.
To wit, when "The Hangover" star Bradley Cooper earned the auspicious title over 2011's Golden God Ryan Gosling, fans took up arms, launching online protests and even going so far as to picket outside of People's Time Inc. headquarters. So when our own Josh Horowitz caught up with 2010's Sexiest Man Alive, Ryan Reynolds, at the "Safe House" junket, he had to get the hottie's take on the situation.
Surprisingly (or perhaps not), Ryan was completely unaware of the kerfuffle. "I did not hear about this," he said, after joking that he was now on the Sexiest Man Alive lecture circuit. "Are you kidding?"
