Sam Worthington Does ‘Details’ Magazine

"I’m still a very boisterous young man"

Aussie hunk Sam Worthington, who starred in Avatar and will portray Greek hero Perseus in the upcoming remake of Clash of the Titans, is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Details magazine. This coverstory is timed perfectly with the release of his new film, due out next month, and gives the US audience a better understanding of this boy from Oz:

On finding interviews excruciating: I’m still a very boisterous young man. And I swear a bit more than I should. So I’m learning to temper it, you know?”

On his standard-issue Aussie boyhood: “I’m not a great fan of people who say they put a sheet up in the backyard when they were 7 and entertained all the neighbors. When I was 7, I thought I was a fucking fire truck.”

On why he loves living in hotel rooms: “”I like room service. They put a chocolate on my pillow. It’s kinda cool.”

On his work ethic: “”Well, I demand a lot,” he says, then backtracks, not wanting to position himself as some kind of diva. “I demand excellence in myself. I’m up front and quite outspoken, but I’ll give you everything.”

This Details coverstory does give the reader a better sense of Sam Worthington, the man, but the info comes primarily from the people he’s worked with. The primary focus of the piece is on what others (like James Cameron, McG, Zoe Saldana and more) think of him rather than from responses he gives to the interviewer. It’s a great read. The mag also comes with a batch of really great photos, too. After the jump, check out a few of them … More »

Gerard Butler Does ‘Men’s Journal’ Magazine

"I'm not a big relationship guy."

Cheeky cad du jour, Gerard Butler, is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Men’s Journal magazine. In his coverstory interview, Gerry intimates that he doesn’t get as much tail as he used to and makes a joke about trimming Jennifer Aniston‘s bush … natch. Here is our first look at Gerard‘s Men’s Journal coverphoto and some excerpts from his accompanying interview:

On getting laid: “I think I get laid less now than I used to, because I’m way more paranoid now – look at fucking Tiger Woods! I mean, I’m nowhere near as naughty as I used to be, partly because I did a lot of that when I was drinking.”

On his commitment problems: “In the last five years since coming out here, I’ve had two relationships. I’m not a big relationship guy. One of my vices is, I’m too wrapped up in myself and not always in a good way.”

On holiday fun with Jennifer Aniston: “Over Christmas she had a tree-trimming party that I went to. Yeah, I trimmed her bush… Shit. Please don’t put that in.”

On his anxiety addiction: “I was born into a world of anxiety… I am slightly addicted to anxiety. When I’m feeling anxious, I’ll create more anxiety for myself. Like I might call all these people about what’s fun to do tonight and end up with four different options, which in itself would put me into a blind panic; but then I’ll make another four calls just to make it 10 times more anxiety-ridden.”

I can’t say that I have much respect for a man that idolizes Tiger Woods‘s cheating ways … but I guess I have to give him props for the Aniston bush joke ;) I wonder if Gerard Butler keeps talking about Jennifer Aniston in interviews he’ll pull a John Mayer and piss her off entirely too … he strikes me as the kind of guy who is about 2 beers from kissing and telling all. I can’t say I’m too interested to read this whole interview in Men’s Journal … this taste is enough for me.

Tina Fey Does ‘Esquire’ Magazine

"I have no plans to do [Twitter]. I'll just stick with my 24/7 webcam."

Funny woman Tina Fey is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Esquire magazine. While Tina is lookin’ sexy as hell on the cover, she’s lookin’ very much the funny girl in her accompanying photospread. Here is our first look at Tina‘s Esquire coverphoto and some excerpts from her interview:

The best doughnut? That’s Peter Pan doughnuts in Brooklyn. It’s a Polish bakery. We shot nearby once for 30 Rock. It’s a white-cream-filled powdered doughnut. And I really believe, when I first tried it, if I had a penis, I would put it in this doughnut. I finally understand what you guys are thinking about and what motivates you guys.

My four-year-old daughter has a pretend hair-and-nail salon, and I was doing her hair and makeup. I said, “Hello ma’am. What’s your name? And what do you do?” And she said, “I get paid to dance at parties.” And I said, “Oh, no. That’s a terrible, terrible answer.”

She says she looks like Barack Obama. I think she heard so many people at that time saying I looked like Sarah Palin, I think she was just trying to get in on that. “I look like Barack Obama.” Okay. Sure.

Twitter seems like a busman’s holiday: just more writing. I have no plans to do it. I’ll just stick with my 24/7 webcam. I’m old-fashioned that way.

Plots we would not do on 30 Rock? Let me put the Internet at ease: Liz and Jack will never be together. Not even if we go fifteen seasons. Okay, if we get to season fifteen, they’ll do it.

I think my level of fame will drop back down. I think it’ll recede. In fact, I know it will. That’s life on planet earth. And I’m okay with that. Besides getting tables at restaurants and special treatment at the airport, what else is there?

After the jump, check out a few photos from Tina‘s photoshoot and read some more excerpts from her Esquire coverstory interview … More »

Shia LaBeouf Does ‘GQ’ Magazine

"I'm like the coolest guy in the world. I've been on the cover of GQ!"

Shia LaBeouf, star of the upcoming sequel film Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (which is a terrible name, btw), is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of GQ magazine modeling a few swanky suits. Here is our first look at Shia‘s GQ coverphoto and some excerpts from his accompanying interview:

On the Wall Street trading floors where he went to learn the banking ropes: “I thought my life was pretty wild. I’m Richie Rich. I land in New York, secretly thinking I’m like the coolest guy in the world. I’ve been on the cover of GQ! But then I met these guys, and it’s humbling. It’s the most sex-drugs-and-rock-’n'-roll atmosphere that exists on the planet. I was hanging out with some wild human beings.”

On getting past the stereotypes of Wall Street traders: “It’s easy to villainize these guys with the big paychecks,” he says. “But they’re not all bad. I’m a pretty left-wing character, and I come from whatever collar is lower than blue. But meeting these guys really opened my mind a lot. I’ve never seen people with more drive and determination in my life.”

On his relationship with co-star and girlfriend Carey Mulligan: “I never really had anything in my life that was off-limits,” he says, visibly trying to control his natural inclination to share, to think out loud, to let his voice run free. “But with this, just out of respect, I just don’t want to fuck around. She’s an unbelievably thought-provoking actress, the most talented actress I’ve ever met in my life, by leaps and bounds. Neither one of us are fame whores. It works out. It’s not like we’re the premiere couple; we’re not the red-carpet king and queen.”

After the jump, check out a few photos from Shia‘s GQ photospread and find out what Shia has to say about his much-publicized car accident, working with director Oliver Stone and Wall Street co-star Michael Douglas‘s son who was arrested on drug charges … More »

Anderson Cooper Does ‘Outside’ Magazine

"I just don’t want that fear in my stomach to be a part of my life"

Anderson Cooper, the brave CNN anchor who recently put himself in harm’s way to rescue a small boy in Haiti in the wake of the devastating earthquake they suffered back in January, is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Outside magazine. Here is our first look at the silver fox’s Outside coverphoto and some excerpts from his coverstory interview:

On overcoming fear: “I don’t believe you should be ruled by fear in anything in life. I don’t like anything that scares me, I prefer to face it head-on and get over it. Anyone who says they’re not scared is a fool or a liar or both. I just don’t want that fear in my stomach to be a part of my life, so I work to eliminate it.”

On skydiving being senseless: “I have no interest in jumping out of an airplane, or any of the things people do for thrills to push the limit and all that. To me, that seems foolish. There’s no point. If people are suffering in a place, to me, it’s not a question of whether I’m going to go or not. It’s a question of how fast can I get there.”

On springing into action while in Haiti: “You suddenly find yourself in a situation where, you say … what do you do? There are some journalism purists who say that you do nothing, that you just watch and report, and I certainly understand that. But in the case of a little boy who got hit in the head with a cement block, no one was helping him. He couldn’t get up. … Blood was pouring from his head. It was a split second decision to take him out of the situation.”

How much do I love Anderson Cooper? He is THE best. I 100% agree with him on the senselessness of skydiving. I was coerced into jumping my dumb ass out of a plane a few years ago and it was the single most terrifying thing I’ve ever done. I will never, ever do it again nor would I ever encourage anyone else to do so. I love that Anderson has got my back on this :) Some of you Cooper aficionados may recall that he previously graced the cover of Outside magazine back in March 2008 … so clearly, he’s a fan of the publication. I’m pretty sure there are a few Coop fans out there who might enjoy this issue of Outside … I know I will :)

Gisele Bündchen Does ‘Vogue’ Magazine

“I felt like my pregnancy was a sacred moment for me"

Gisele Bündchen, supermodel extraordinaire and new mom, is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Vogue magazine … who posed for the mag just 6 weeks after giving birth. As you may recall, Gisele and hubby Tom Brady welcomed the birth of their first child together — a boy named Benjamin Reinin early December. It wasn’t until early February that we got our first look at little Benjamin Rein. Today we get another peek at Gisele‘s baby boy in the pages of Vogue, as well as a sneak peek at her coverstory interview. Here is Gisele‘s Vogue coverphoto and excerpts from her accompanying interview:

Devoted to health, wellness, and the trials and triumphs of shape and size, VOGUE’s annual April tribute to the female form, the Shape Issue, is replete with stories that range from the inspirational to the poignant, but all celebrate a love for life … The model of health itself, Gisele Bündchen is a natural choice to grace the cover of the April Shape Issue. Only six weeks after giving birth, Gisele opens the doors to her Boston home to VOGUE Contributing Editor Joan Juliet Buck and shares intimate details about the birth of her baby boy with New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, her new beauty line developed to empower troubled young girls around the world, and her efforts to save the environment. In a stunning editorial shot by Patrick Demarchelier, the model enjoys the beaches of Costa Rica and shows off her new baby, Benjamin Rein.

Gisele on her baby’s name, Benjamin Rein: “I wanted him to be called River because I wanted something always flowing, immortal. My husband said, ‘There’s no way we’re going to call him River.’ But my father’s name is Reinoldo, so it’s a homage to him. And it’s like water.”

On staying in shape while pregnant: “I did kung fu up until two weeks before Benjamin was born, and yoga three days a week. I think a lot of people get pregnant and decide they can turn into garbage disposals. I was mindful about what I ate, and I gained only 30 pounds.”

On keeping out of the public eye: “I felt like my pregnancy was a sacred moment for me. I stayed in Boston and I didn’t work apart from the contracts I have, and then I only let them use my face.”

On her first time behind the camera since her son was born: “I got to the studio and I felt like I was E.T.—whoa, what’s going on? Hair and makeup? I hadn’t looked at myself in a mirror for a month and a half… Usually, as I walk through the door into that atmosphere, I already feel different. There’s a button that goes On and I’m On. And when I go On, there is almost no me; there is just a character who is doing all this. This time it wasn’t like that… For the first time, I think I actually saw me—the inside—instead of the persona.”

Only a paragon of perfection like Gisele could give birth to a baby and 6 weeks later look this good for Vogue magazine. OY! After the jump, check out a few photos from Gisele‘s Vogue photoshoot including a pic of her still pregs, a pic of her with baby Ben and more … More »

Gwen Stefani Does ‘In Style’ Magazine

Plays 20 Questions

Gwen Stefani, who has been off the radar for quite a few months, is back and on the cover of the new issue of In Style magazine. Gwen takes on 20 questions posed by the mag and also poses for a fairly stylish (yet sometimes tacky) accompanying photospread. Ah … it’s great to have Gwen back, no?

You can click HERE to read the fully transcribed interview and click HERE to see the accompanying photospread.

This is actually a very cool interview. She covers a lot of topics … it’s cool to hear her talk about mom stuff. She is so a mom more than she is a popstar anymore, it’s really sweet. I like this photospread for the most part … the white lace outfit, tho, is tacky. I believe it’s a L.A.M.B. design so … yeah. Otherwise, great shoot … and great interview. Welcome back, Gwen!

Angelina ‘Jolie’ Pivarnick Claims ‘Jersey Shore’ Ruined Her Life

"Jenni has been telling people she wants to beat me up"

While the main castmembers of MTV‘s Jersey Shore are flying around the country living high on the hog at various parties thrown in their honor, estranged castmate Angelina Jolie Pivarnick is confessing to Life & Style magazine that appearing on Jersey Shore has ruined her life. Since she was asked to leave the show in season 1 (after only the third ep), she claims that the other JS castmembers have been hating on her big time. Oh No!

From insulting text messages to threats of violence, Angelina Pivarnick tells Life & Style her Jersey Shore co-stars have made her miserable since she left the show after three episodes. “I got a text from Mike saying, ‘Be prepared to get your ass beat, you pale rat bitch. Nobody likes you in the house,’” she reveals. “Jenni has been telling people she wants to beat me up, and Snooki says she’s going to beat me up too. I don’t understand why they hate me.” Co-star DJ Pauly D snubbed Angelina another way after hooking up with her while in LA for the reunion show. “The next night we went to a club, and he wound up hooking up with someone else right in front of my face!” she says. It’s even more hurtful because she left the show for her boyfriend, who broke up with her three months later. Still, the Staten Island native says she’d return for season two, which will take place in Miami. “Without a doubt, 100 percent,” she says. “Now I’m single — and I want to party again!”

Angelina is a hot mess. From her trash bag luggage to her annoying big mouth, it’s no wonder the other castmates can’t stand her. I can understand how they might all be a bit resentful that she wants to get back in on their good time after she shat all over it the first time to the point where she was asked to leave the show. But, it makes total sense that MTV would want to bring her back for the express purpose of stirring up trouble. Meh. I’m over it. She sucked before, she’ll suck again if brought back … I say, cut her loose … let her disappear into obscurity for good and bring on board another self-proclaimed guidette to take her place. If Angelina really believes that Jersey Shore “ruined her life” then she should look to sunnier pastures. Considering the leechy person she seems to be, I’m not surprised she’d be willing to come crawling back for a chance to taste fame again. I guess we’ll have to see if Angelina will really come back for Jersey Shore season 2 or if she is merely desperately grasping at straws at one last ditch effort at being famous.

Any Angelina fans out there? Wanna speak up for your girl?

Gerard Butler & Jennifer Aniston Do ‘W’ Magazine

'Ex' files

Gerard Butler and Jennifer Aniston, rumored lovers and co-stars in the upcoming new film Bounty Hunter, are featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of W magazine. Here is our first look at their coverphoto and some deets about the accompanying coverstory:

Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler have laughed off reports that they’re romantically involved, but the “Bounty Hunter” costars sure look cozy on the cover of W magazine’s April issue. Shot on a ranch about 45 minutes outside of Los Angeles in mid-January, the 13-page pictorial featuring Butler and Aniston, both 40, consists of seven photographs by celeb shutterbug Steven Klein. Ironically, Klein also shot W’s infamous July 2005 cover featuring Brad Pitt — who had then-recently separated from Aniston — playing house with Angelina Jolie. For the April cover, on which hunky Scottish actor Butler wraps his arms around Aniston, the actress tapped into her inner fashionista and wore an Alberta Ferretti silk chiffon dress, Carine Gilson Lingerie Couture’s silk bra and silk lace briefs, Stella McCartney garters and Lanvin shoes. Total retail value for her outfit? $3,800! As for the inside pictorial, it’s called “Speed Trap: Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler do a little role playing in the searing heat of the California desert where damsels aren’t always in distress and lawmen sometimes break the rules.” Hmmm … role playing?

Yeah, yeah … they’re just friends. Whatever. And you know … these pics are hot and all but their Bounty Hunter movie still looks terrible. To be honest, I have zero interest in seeing their film. But, I wouldn’t mind checking out one more photo from this W magazine photospread … More »

Adam Lambert Does ‘Flaunt’ Magazine

Shady, Shady

American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert is featured in the new issue of Flaunt magazine modeling various pairs of whacky sunglasses … behold:

I gotta say … I like these photos. While the glasses are quite ridiculous, Glambert wears them well. There’s a nice edge to these photos without his usual need to go overboard. If his photospreads were more like this and less like THIS then I think I’d be more of a fan. He’s on the right path with these photos. What do y’all think?
