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."
Elle magazine's annual celebration of Hollywood's best and brightest women was last night, and can we just say? Best. Party. Ever. To which we were not invited, for some strange reason! But that's okay, because despite the disappointment, we can still enjoy today's photographic documentation of all our favorite ladycrushes hanging out in one place (YAY!). All the best girls in the entertainment biz were present for this event to honor their accomplishments, and it was amazing. Picture the world's most awesome slumber party, only everyone's famous and wearing couture.
This was a seriously star-studded event, and our gallery of the attendees only represents something like one quarter of the celebrity presence—but we did manage to snag snapshots of major players like the Emmas (Stone and Watson, that is), Rashida Jones, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, Anna Kendrick, and even the Grande Dame of Female Fabulousness, Susan Sarandon.
Selena Gomez is an international pop singer with three hit records, a budding young actress who got her start on Disney's hit show "The Wizards of Waverly Place" and now she's trying her hand at an indie drama called "Spring Breakers"—certainly the makings of Hollywood's latest It Girl. But Selena wasn't always a successful starlet.
In the July issue of Elle magazine, she recalls a time when money was tight and her family was struggling.
"I can remember about seven times when our car got stuck on the highway because we'd run out of gas money," she said. "[Still my mother] saved up to take me to concerts. She took me to museums, aquariums, to teach me about the world, about what's real."
What's going on with Kristen Stewart in the upcoming issue of Elle magazine? Well, to quote our favorite international man of mystery: She's a MAN, baby! The "Snow White and the Huntsman" star donned a suit, some suspenders and a seriously suave expression to play a dashing gentleman for her photo shoot with Tom Munro, which depicts the actress seducing... herself, dressed as a woman, thanks to some seriously ambitious photoshoppery. Which is quite an apt pose for a gal who just finished a film about the devastating effects of narcissism! And inside, Kristen antes up for an interview about her irritatingly un-difficult life, her drive to act and, of course, the rumors surrounding her romance with one Robert Pattinson.
It's no secret that KStew has been dating her "Twilight" co-star for awhile now, but time hasn't had any effect on the notoriously close-mouthed actress' willingness to dish about her love life. And when it comes to the latest hot topic, a gold ring that's purported to be from Rob, she'd only say, "Everyone wants to know. Everyone knows already—it’s ridiculous.”
Take a look at Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis in the August issue of Elle magazine, and it's pretty obvious why they make such a great on-screen couple in the upcoming "Friends With Benefits": even in photos, the chemistry between the two is seriously smokin'. And that's just the beginning! Inside, the actors sat down for an interview where they play off each other like a pair of old pros... or alternately, like people who just spent several months seeing each other in a near-constant state of complete nudity.
But don't get any ideas: both Justin and Mila say that a typical friends-with-benefits relationship tends not to end well—even if it starts off with, y'know, a bang.
"It is such a good idea—until it’s a bad idea," Justin said.
We've had a beast of a girl crush on Emma Stone ever since "Superbad," but after seeing her latest feature in July's ELLE magazine, that shizz just went up to eleven. Confident, cool and still rocking her blond "Spider-Man" dye job in a quirky photo shoot, Emma makes the ultimate down-to-earth summer cover girl. And just when you thought you couldn't love her more, here she goes in her interview—quipping hilariously about fame, baking and how hard she rocks at Farmville.
"I got to level 42, and I wasn’t doing anything else anymore, so I had to stop," Emma admitted. (Girl, we know how you feel. Wanna trade tips on sheep husbandry?) But with her career blowing up, the actress doesn't have time to mess around with virtual crops anymore—although we're glad to see that she's with-it enough to be circumspect about her personal life. ("You have to keep some things sacred," she said, declining to talk about her former relationship with Kieran Culkin) And judging by her detached attitude, it's probably safe to say that the fame hasn't really sunk in yet.
By now, we all know that Rachel McAdams is Hollywood's go-to girl for romantic roles—whether they're kind of quirky ("Wedding Crashers"), kind of tear-jerking ("The Time Traveler's Wife"), or kind of responsible for an entire generation of teenage girls simultaneously deciding that we would never again be satisfied by a romantic relationship that did not directly involve making out with Ryan Gosling in the rain. (No, it's NOT just a phase! If we can't have soaking wet Gosling, we just won't have anything at all!)
So after all these years, how does Rachel fake falling in love so well? In this month's Elle magazine, she opens up about her romantic role models, her real-life relationships and the latest evolution of her career.
If there's one thing we love about "Water for Elephants" star Robert Pattinson (besides his chiseled jaw line...and the way he musses his hair...and the fact that he owns a rescue dog) it's his oddball sense of humor. It's pretty impossible not to get at least one interesting, titillating, totally WTF?!? soundbite from the star when conducting even the briefest of interviews with him. And his latest in Elle is no exception.
Rob chatted with the magazine about his role as a sleazy journalist in the upcoming drama "Bel Ami," destroying his "Twilight" image and his childhood crushes. We culled through the feature and pulled our three favorite quotes:
Alright, we admit it: We're jealous of Amanda Seyfried. Not only does the girl have great legs, pretty hair and a wildly successful career, but her past romantic entanglements read like our own personal wishlist of Men We'd Like To Nom. Emile Hirsch? Dominic Cooper? Ryan Phillippe? Alexander Skarsgård?! (Hey Seyfried, would you mind leaving just one of our celebrity crushes unmolested? THANKS.)
These days, though, Amanda seems to be single (who knows what's up with that Phillippe thing)—and now she's the cover girl for April's ELLE magazine, where she posed for a black-and-white photoshoot with various adorable animals (how can anyone still look that glamorous while holding a sheep?) and talked about her favorite movie make outs. Because in addition to her real-life romances with Hollywood's most desirable dudes, Amanda has also had the privilege of getting busy on-screen with an awful lot of good-looking dudes.
Not that she's complaining.
Is that Katy Perry on the cover of Elle? The magazine's March issue claims to feature the pop princess, but... but... she's wearing pants. PANTS! What is this brave new world?!
But no, really, that's Katy—decked out in high-waisted purple trousers and an emerald jacket and featured inside as the star of a vaudeville-circus-inspired photo shoot. Where, of course, she sports a series of leotards and looks every inch the over-the-top diva we've come to know and love. But Katy wants people to know that despite her glamor queen status, on the inside, she's really just a regular girl.
"It’s important to be relatable and normal," she said. "And I think that what helps with that, for me, is that I had the rug pulled out from underneath my feet so many times. It was like, ‘Listen up, bitch, you’re not going to get served this on a silver platter—you’ve got to work for it!’ I don’t feel like I can act like an entitled bitch yet! I still have so much to prove."
She's referring, of course, to her previous life as a high-school kid and Christian pop singer—an early entry into the music business that didn't pan out.
