The Ladies Of ‘Sex And The City 2’ Do ‘Harper’s Bazaar’ Magazine

Photoshopping friends together

Cynthia Nixon, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis and Kim Cattrall are all featured on the cover of the new issue of Harper’s Bazaar Japan magazine to promote their upcoming sequel film Sex and the City 2 (due out in theaters here in the US on May 30). Tho, if you look closely, you can kinda tell that the ladies were not photographed together for the cover … it appears they were actually Photoshopped together in post-production:

I find it a bit odd that the SaTC ladies couldn’t get together to pose for a real magazine cover (especially with a new film to promote) but this isn’t the first time the ladies have pulled stuff like this. They are notorious for never posing for photos together for shoots like these. They each pose on their own and let the Photoshoppers do the rest. They each look very lovely tho (well, save for Ms. Cattrall … what is going on with her head?) but this doesn’t seem like a magazine that I feel I’d need to pick up.

‘People’ Magazine Selects The ‘100 Most Beautiful People’ Of 2010

The annual list

Because the shocking news that Sandra Bullock has adopted a baby boy without anyone in the world knowing about it takes precedence, her story is the main focus of this week’s cover of People magazine. But People has another big story to share with the world this week, its annual 100 Most Beautiful People list! Here are a few of the folks who made the list this year — including Jake Gyllenhaal, Channing Tatum and Bradley Cooper — but the celeb chosen as THE most beautiful person might come as a bit of a surprise, or maybe not really … she has previously made the 100 Most Beautiful List 12 times and has previously been THE most beautiful person 4 times:

Julia Roberts, who began her career as “Pretty Woman,” is now the most beautiful person in the world, according to People magazine’s Most Beautiful Person issue released on Wednesday. This is the fourth time the 42-year-old timeless beauty has headed People’s list and the twelfth time she’s been named one of the world’s 100 Most Beautiful people. The announcement was made live Wednesday on TODAY by People senior editor Galina Espinoza … A dozen appearances are the second-most in the history of the exclusive list. Only Halle Berry, who this year makes her 14th appearance on People’s iconic list, has more. Following Roberts are nine-time honorees George Clooney, Jennifer Lopez, Brad Pitt and Nicole Kidman. Of those, only Lopez is back this year … The “Most Beautiful People” issue is broken down into sections celebrating various aspects of beauty. For the fourth straight year, there’s a section on “Stars without Makeup” that celebrates eight women photographed in just moisturizer and lip balm. They include Diane Kruger, 33, of “Inglourious Basterds”; Ashley Greene, 23; Kerry Washington, 33; supermodel Heidi Klum and Selena Gomez, 17. There’s also a section honoring “Beautiful Jessicas,” new to the edition this year. Those include Jessica Biel, 28; Jessica Simpson, 29, and Jessica Alba, 29, who reveals that her real name is Farrahdawn Louisa Alba. “Surprise Jersey Girls” is another new section, honoring women with connections to the Garden State. Those include Sarah Jessica Parker, 45, who was educated in Englewood; Newark natives Queen Latifah, 40, and Keshia Knight Pulliam, 31; former Princeton student Brooke Shields, 44; Jersey City native Martha Stewart, 68, and Christina Milian, 28. “It Runs in the Family” features four celebrity daughters: Meryl Streep’s daughter, actress Mamie Gummer, 26; Phil Collins’ daughter, actress Lily Collins, 21; Jack Nicholson’s and Rebecca Broussard’s daughter, actress Lorraine Nicholson, 20; and Alfre Woodard’s daughter, Mavis Spencer, 18, a student who will attend Columbia University in the fall … On the “Hot List” are reality star Kim Kardashian, actress Zoe Saldana, and singers Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus. This year’s “Hot List” includes 20-year-old Kristen Stewart and 27-year-old Gabourey Sidibe, the “Precious” star and Academy Award nominee, who told People, “For my own happiness, I had to learn to like myself — and take the way I look out of the equation” … “Twilight” heartthrob Robert Pattison, 23, is also on the list as is “American Idol” runner-up Adam Lambert, 28.

While I generally agree with People‘s choices of the “most beautiful”, I can’t help but believe their decision to name Julia Roberts the most beautiful person — again — as a p.r. stunt in her favor. Julia has a new movie coming out so this “honor” will help with promotion of that film. Of all the people People could’ve chosen, like Sandra Bullock perhaps, I cannot for the life of me understand why Julia Roberts would be chosen as the stand out. In any event, People‘s 100 Most Beautiful People list is pure feel-good fluff for everyone involved … it’s nothing really to take seriously at all. Which of YOUR fave beautiful people made the list?

Sandra Bullock Adopts A Baby Boy!

She also moves forward with her divorce from Jesse James

Okay, in what has to be the WTF?! news of this new century thus far, People magazine has broken the best kept secret EVER that Sandra Bullock is the proud mother of a 3 1/2 month old baby boy named Louis Bardo that she started the adoption process of 4 YEARS AGO when she was still blissfully married to her cheating husband Jesse James. Sandra and Jesse brought home baby Louis before the Academy Awards earlier this year (and before news of his cheating scandal broke) and they managed to keep the secret all this time. Proud new mama Sandra and her adorable baby boy Louis are featured on the cover of the new issue of People magazine, wherein she confirms that she plans to move forward with her divorce from James and will raise Louis on her own as a single parent:

In public, Sandra Bullock has been through the best and worst of times this year – from winning her first Oscar to enduring the breakup of her marriage. In private, she was quietly keeping a joyful secret – his name is Louis, and he is her newborn son. “He’s just perfect, I can’t even describe him any other way,” Bullock reveals exclusively in the new issue of PEOPLE, announcing that she is the proud mother of Louis Bardo Bullock, a 3½-month-old boy, born in New Orleans. “It’s like he’s always been a part of our lives.” Bullock, 45, and husband Jesse James, 41, began the adoption process four years ago and brought Louis home in January but decided to keep the news to themselves until after the Oscars. Their close friends and family – including James’s children Sunny, 6, Jesse Jr., 12, and Chandler, 15 – were essential in keeping the adoption a secret. Then, just 10 days after the March 7 Oscars, Bullock and James separated following reports James had cheated. Bullock says she is now finalizing the adoption as a single parent.

In this age of the 24 hour news cycle, I am STUNNED that a secret like this can be kept underwraps. Not only has this adoption been 4 years in the making but I am amazed that no one knew that Sandra Bullock, who was probably the most sought after celeb in the world for the past few weeks, had a baby boy with her! This has to be the media coup of the century, for sure. I am so happy for Sandra and her new baby … Louis will surely be the joy that will allow her to love life again!

In regards to her slimeball soon-to-be ex-husband, he’s got something to say about the news that Bullock has decided to move forward and divorce him. Read what he has to say after the jump … More »

Victoria Beckham Does German ‘Vogue’ Magazine

Girl's Girl

Victoria Beckham is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of German Vogue magazine. Altho her coverstory article is in German, parts of the feature are in English … like the coverphoto headline that Vicki B. is a “Girl’s Girl”:

Additionally, the coverstory article is titled Queen of Posh … meant to wittily go along with VB being photographed in not-so-posh surroundings. Clever. After the jump, check out some of the photos from Vicki B.‘s gritty Vogue photospread … More »

More Photos Of Alexander Skarsgård In ‘VMan’ Magazine

The Scandinavian Issue

Yesterday we got our first look at True Blood star Alexander Skarsgård on the cover of the new issue of VMan magazine (you may recall that we also got to see the lad tucked between new ladylove Kate Bosworth‘s legs at Coachella) and today we get to see photos from his VMan photospread:

It’ll prolly come as no surprise to know that Skarsgård was chosen as the covermodel of this new issue of VMan in large part because it is the Scandinavian Issue of the mag. And because the new season of True Blood is nearly upon us, he was the perfect choice for the mag. After the jump, check out some photos from Alexander‘s shoot … More »

‘Courtney Love Is Dead’, Says Courtney Love

The new NME interview

The artist formerly known as Courtney Love is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of the British music magazine NME in a coverstory interview where she explains that “Courtney Love” is dead. Courtney, whose real full name is Courtney Michelle Harrison, has decided that we’ve all had enough of “Courtney Love“, so she has decided to kill her … or some such ridiculousness. Here is Courtney Michelle, as she would like to be known from here on out, on the cover of the new issue of NME along with some excerpts from this new interview:

What’s in a name? Courtney Love’s about to find out. Sorry, Courtney Michelle’s about to find out. The ever, um, eccentric Hole frontwoman has announced that she will professionally revert back to her real name—well, real middle name—and henceforth answer only to Courtney Michelle (her birth name is Courtney Michelle Harrison). “Courtney Love is dead,” she told Britain’s NME magazine. “We’ve all decided we don’t like her anymore. We love her when she goes onstage, but I don’t need her in the rest of my life.” And lest you think this new name is little more than a rock star’s passing fancy or attempt to channel her inner Sasha Fierce, think again: “Courtney Love is a way to oppress me,” she explained. Yeah, those surnames can be so domineering! Sadly, her record company didn’t quite get the memo, announcing just last week that Hole, led by Courtney Love, will be going on tour this summer following the release of its new album, Nobody’s Daughter. The veracity of her moniker swap will no doubt be tested next week, when Courtney…Whatever makes the late-night rounds.

For the first time in YEARS, Courtney Love Michelle Whatever finally has a chance to win back some modicum of respect now that she is about to release a new album that has been fairly well received by critics and fans. Doing stupid crap like changing one’s name will only serve to confuse people and may likely discredit her attempt to return to the world of music. Courtney, my dear, the name change didn’t work for Prince — arguably one of THE most talented musicians of all time — what makes you think it’ll work for you?

Ian Somerhalder Does ‘GQ’ Magazine

Shirt Tales

Ian Somerhalder, the bad boy vamp on The Vampire Diaries, is featured in the new issue of GQ magazine modeling the hottest colored shirts to wear this season. IMHO, Ian looks better when he’s not wearing suits but even I have to admit … he can wear a suit very well. Here is one of his GQ photos along with some excerpts from his very short accompanying interview:

On how J.J. Abrams picked the right moment to tell him he’d been killed off Lost:
“I was in wine country, man, with a beautiful girl. I said to J.J., ‘Your timing is impeccable. If I’d been at a Denny’s I would have started crying.’ I downed a couple of bottles of Pinot and I was set.”

On being accosted in airports by obsessed fans of both Lost and The Vampire Diaries:
“The decibel level at which a 13-year-old can explain how much she loves you—it’s the coolest thing ever.”

While the interview may be lacking (it’s just a short blurb, barely an interview at all), the photospread is much more substantial — and easy on the eyes. After the jump, check out a few more photos of Ian modeling this Spring’s hottest colored shirts in the new issue of GQ magazine … More »

Alexander Skarsgård Does ‘VMan’ Magazine


Last week we learned that hotties Kellan Lutz (Twilight), Matthew Bomer (White Collar), Noah Mills (Sex and the City 2), Xavier Samuel (The Twilight Saga Eclipse) and Ryan Kwanten (True Blood) are featured within the pages of the new Summer issue of VMan magazine … today we learn that Alexander Skarsgård (True Blood) is the main hottie featured on the cover … behold:

The official website for VMan has yet to be updated with this new coverphoto, which made its Internet debut on THIS Alexander Skarsgård Facebook fan page. Homie is lookin’ slick as hell in this Tom Ford tuxedo … coupled with the perfect and messily coiffed hair’do, he looks damn fine. I kinda sorta got a thing for Vikings so it’s no wonder that Skarsgård is my fave castmember on True Blood. I can’t wait ’til we get to see the rest of the photos from his VMan photospread.
