Scarlett Johansson Does ‘Glamour’ Magazine

Pete Yorn does 'Glamour', too

Scarlett Johansson is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Glamour magazine. She is joined inside the mag with her BFF and singing partner Pete Yorn with whom she just released a new album called Break Up. Here is Scarlett‘s Glamour coverphoto and some excerpts from her coverstory interview:

At 25, Scarlett Johansson has a hot career, an even hotter husband (Ryan Reynolds) and a brand-new album with pal Pete Yorn (seen here). We adore her, and you will too—listen in as she talks marriage, work and body image with Amy Larocca.

GLAMOUR: Your album’s fantastic! How was it to work with Pete Yorn?
Scarlett Johansson: I’ve known him for a while. I’ve worked with both of his brothers, who are in the entertainment industry. One day Pete texted me out of the blue saying, “Hey, do you want to record an album?” I was like, Whoa, that’s a weird message. But I said, “Sure—why not?”

GLAMOUR: How’d he know you sing?
SJ: He didn’t!

GLAMOUR: He just thought you would be good?
SJ: He said he had some weird fever dream—and had this idea that we should do a duets album…. When I started singing along to the songs he was playing me, he said, “I’m really happy that you can sing!” [Laughs.]

GLAMOUR: So would you like to do musical theater?
SJ: I would love to work on Broadway, but I don’t know that it would manifest itself in musical theater…. I have terrible stage fright that I’d have to get over.

GLAMOUR: Really?
SJ: Crippling. Not as a kid. It came on when I was a teenager, and I think it somehow sticks with you.

GLAMOUR: You’ve really grown up in front of the camera, but you didn’t seem to have an awkward phase.
SJ: I was pretty awkward in The Horse Whisperer. I watch it now, and it’s painful. Did I go through a phase where I had cystic acne and greasy hair? No. But I certainly had an awkward phase.

GLAMOUR: I don’t necessarily mean the cystic acne. I just mean the “I don’t know how to be in my own skin” phase.
SJ: I never had that. I think that’s because I was an actor, and you have to be comfortable in your body.

GLAMOUR: I read your piece [about body image and Hollywood] on The Huffington Post recently. Tell me what inspired you to write it.
SJ: I was training for Iron Man 2, which was a lot of work, full-on. I wanted to do a lot of my stunts and to be believable as this superspy, so I started getting fit and eating well and feeling really good. But then there was this rumor mill cranking out stories that I had lost 14 pounds—I could never lose 14 pounds—and was on some miracle diet. I just thought it was ridiculous. I was working my ass off, but I was doing it on my own terms and certainly through no miracle diet. I don’t want to get caught up in that s—t…. I hate seeing these ridiculous articles where [tabloids] guess someone’s weight. But they approach it as fact! I’m sick of it as a woman—not just as a person on the other side of it. As a reader. I got fed up.

GLAMOUR: How do you keep sane about the whole weight thing?
SJ: I want to look good, obviously. I don’t want to look at the screen and go, Oh, my skin looks terrible, or, I look exhausted. That’s why I take care of myself when I work…. But I don’t feel the obligation to be a specific weight. I don’t feel like I have to fit into a body that’s not my body. I have the body I have and I try to maintain it.

GLAMOUR: A lot of actors aren’t able to [have that attitude].
SJ: If you open up a magazine and there’s a photograph of you with a giant red circle around your thigh, like, look at this cellulite, any person—I don’t care what you do—would be mortified. It’s no wonder people get crazy about it.

Scarlett‘s Glamour interview continues HERE and pretty much covers the same sort of material. I always find her more interesting to look at than to listen to … and I deffo find her husband Ryan Reynolds much more interesting to look at than her so … yeah. After the jump, check out some of the photos from Scarlett and Pete‘s photospread … More »

Jason Wahler Begins Serving The Jail Sentence For His Most Recent Arrest

Paying the piper

RadarOnline is reporting that Jason Wahler, who gained fame from appearing on MTV‘s Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County and then from dating Lauren LC Conrad on MTV‘s The Hills, was has been booked and taken into custody in Seattle, WA after he was recently arrested on a charge of assault and drunken misbehavior. When he was arrested last month I recounted all his previous arrests in that post … but now it is my sad duty to inform y’all that J. Wahl in jail, y’all:

Former Hills star Jason Wahler has been jailed after being booked on an assault and minor drinking charge, has confirmed. Wahler, 22, who used to date his co-star Lauren Conrad, was booked in Seattle on September 25, 2009 at 12: 05 PM before being transferred to Yakima County Jail four days later. A Seattle court official told “He will serve 120 days in jail but could get out after 80 days for good behavior.” A spokesman from Yakima County Jail said the troubled actor was inside their facility after he was sentenced by a judge. Earlier this year Wahler called off his engagement to tennis player and socialite Katja Sadowski.

I mean … I don’t even know what to say at this point. Once you’ve been arrested and/or jailed about half a dozen times by the age of 22, I think it’s safe to assume that you’re kind of a lost cause. It really sounds like booze is destroying this young man’s life … which is just too sad for words. I hope Wahler gets his shizz straight soon. Sad.

Ed Westwick Does ‘Arena Homme +’ Magazine

Tattooed and Hairy, oh my!

Ed Westwick, star of Gossip Girl and owner of interesting tattoo artwork, is featured on the cover of the new issue of Arena Homme + magazine … sans shirt … behold:

Thus far, only Ed‘s Arena Homme + coverphoto has made its way to the Internets … but one hopes that the rest of the photospread will be just as shirtless and hairy. Altho it’s only one photo, I think it gives us something to look forward to … yes?

Heather Locklear Films Her First Scenes For ‘Melrose Place’

Hurray!! The micro-miniskirt is back, too!

Last week we learned the amazing news that Heather Locklear has decided to FINALLY sign on and reprise her role as Amanda Woodward on the new version of Melrose Place and today we get our FIRST LOOK at Heather as Amanda on the MP set yesterday afternoon. Fans of the original Melrose Place and the Amanda Woodward character alike will be THRILLED to see that she is wearing a trademark micro-miniskirt on her first day back on set:

Like an Applebee’s dinner entree, The CW’s Melrose Place reboot is dripping with cheese, not to mention guilt-inducingly addictive. And while I’d rank the show’s breakout character, Katie Cassidy’s Ella Simms, as prime-time’s reigning head-bitch-in-heels — last night’s “Don’t flatter yourself, David: I always have a good time” was a howl-and-repeat zinger — I’m pretty stoked that Heather Locklear’s Amanda Woodward will soon be in the mix to stir up trouble and (hopefully) boost ratings. After all, Ella-vs.Amanda > Ella-vs.Snoozy-Jane, no? To that end, Locklear was back on the set of Melrose — and back in Amanda’s signature short skirt — for her first day of shooting yesterday, as the accompanying photos prove. Locklear is scheduled to make the first of her multiple appearances starting with the show’s Nov. 17 episode, and I’m curious, if her presence will make you more likely to watch Melrose?

OMGOMGOMG … see, I already love the new Melrose Place so the addition of Amanda Woodward is just TOO MUCH. I LOVED her bitchtastic character on the show the first time around, I can’t wait to see her back in action on the new version of MP. The only thing that could make Amanda‘s return to Melrose even better would be if Allison Parker (played by Courtney Thorne-Smith) came back as well so that she could lie down in front of the Melrose Place apartment complex so Amanda can wipe her razor sharp stiletto shoes on Allison‘s prostrate body as she makes her grand entrance on the show. Can someone make that happen, please?

Lost In Space

The TV Guide

Yesterday was another fun day here in very sunny San Francisco, CA. Early in the afternoon while running some errands at Walgreen’s, I was able to meet Pink reader Nicole and her friend in the beauty aisle (natch). Nicole is visiting SF from Australia and we took this cute pic:

Please don’t mind the Lee’s Press-On Nails behind us ;) Isn’t she a cutie? She was very lovely to meet and I’m so happy she sent in our photo :)

David and I met up with our friend Molly and her friend Becky (who write for Pop Sugar and Buzz Sugar, respectively) for drinks at the Clock Bar in Union Square, which was lots of fun … especially as the drinks kept comin’ and comin’. David, Aram and I finally decided to venture out to see a movie (since we’ve been talking about it for the last 3 days) and decided to see Pandorum:

Honestly, the movie wasn’t that great … but the story premise was pretty good and we were entertained for about an hour and a half so it was deffo worth seeing. Cam Giganet is in the film but not enough. Dennis Quaid and Ben Foster were pretty good in their roles … but the movie isn’t very strong. I found the ending very satisfying so all in all, I enjoyed it.

Tonight is the big night. David and I are going to be at Kylie Minogue‘s FIRST concert performance of her FIRST North American Tour ever … I’m sooooooo excited. I did see her perform in London at the O2 Arena last year but being able to see her in such an intimate setting here in the States is a long-held dream of mine … I cannot wait!! I’ll do my best to tweet from the show and bring as many photos as I can tomorrow. Woot!!

Alyson Hannigan Does ‘The Late Show With David Letterman’

Aly talks Twitter, babies and Show & Tell

Alyson Hannigan, who’s CBS TV series How I Met Your Mother just aired its season premiere ep, paid a visit to The Late Show with David Letterman last night to promote the show and talked to Dave about things as varied as her daughter Satyana‘s first flight to a funny story about her mother’s injuries from a car accident many years ago. Here are a couple photos of Aly lookin’ all glammy as she made her way into the taping of The Late Show last night:

As soon as Aly mentioned her darling daughter Satyana, Dave shared a new previously unseen photo of the little doll:

OY!! Ain’t she the cutest?? Love that little girl … and her mommy. Alyson‘s segment on the show last night was very short but, in fine Aly style, was very funny and cute. After the jump, check out video of Aly‘s interview with David Letterman last night … More »

Justin Timberlake & Jessica Biel Are Dunzo!

"It's Over!" says 'Us Weekly'

Say it ain’t so!!! According to the headline on the cover of the new issue of Us Weekly magazine, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have ended their 3 year relationship … about a month ago … over the phone!! HMMM … I’m not sure that I entirely buy the dramatics of this report but I suppose I can believe that the couple have decided to call it quits. Here is a photo of the couple in happier times earlier this year at the The Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala but according to this new report, Justica are now dunzo!

After a rocky three-year relationship, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have called it quits, Us Weekly reports in its latest issue (on newsstands now). A mutual pal of the pair tells Us Weekly that Timberlake, 28, has told friends, “it’s over,” and that he ended it for good — over the phone. “It was about a month ago,” the pal says. While he was in NYC in September to show his William Rast clothing line at Fashion Week, “Justin was clearly on the hunt,” the pal tells Us Weekly. At a club September 9, he dirty-danced with a tall blonde in a short black dress. At one point, she turned to her friend and mouthed, ‘Oh, my God!’ It was reminiscent of Timberlake’s guys’ night out in June when he was allegedly spotted kissing a girl at NYC hot spot Avenue. Fellow clubgoer Lindsay Lohan Twittered that night, “So dark — where’s jb cheater?” She later claimed her account had been “hacked,” though another source tells Us she panicked after Timberlake “told all his people” to ban Lindsay and make her life miserable.” Meanwhile, Biel, 27, is in “severe denial and won’t accept” the split, their mutual pal tells Us Weekly. Another source says, “There’s no way of knowing if it’s a firm breakup, because with them it’s so hot and cold.”

Yeah … I’d take this news with a huge grain of salt. I love that Us Weekly threw in a qualifier at the end that “there’s no way of knowing if it’s a firm breakup” which is their way of covering their asses should the couple A.) be seen together in the future or B.) issue a statement that they never broke up in the first place. But, again, 3 years is a long time and I can absolutely believe that this relationship has run its course. I believe it took about 3 years for JT to tire of Cameron Diaz before he took up with Jessica. I suppose we’ll have to wait and see what Justica have to say (either as a couple or individually) on the matter but we should know very soon if this breakup report has any weight to it. What do y’all think … are they dunzo or not?
