‘Twilight’s Xavier Samuel Does ‘Interview’ Magazine

"My hair and my accent are sort of my main assets."

Xavier Samuel, the Aussie actor who is about to break into the world of Twilight adoration as the newest hottie vamp on the block in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (due out in theaters on June 30), is featured in the new issue of Interview magazine. Samuel was interviewed by his Eclipse co-star (and fictional vampire maker) Bryce Dallas Howard (who plays vampire Victoria) and is lookin’ pretty good in this accompanying photospread … behold:

BRYCE DALLAS HOWARD: So now that you’re almost on the other side with Eclipse, how has everything been for you? It’s all been a little wild, right?
XAVIER SAMUEL: Yeah, it has. It’s kind of like being struck by lightning in a way, because it all seems so improbable.

HOWARD: Eclipse is your first American film.
SAMUEL: It is. I’ve been doing American auditions for a while, and it always felt sort of like sending these audition tapes off into the ether. So just hearing anything back from anyone was kind of startling.

HOWARD: When we were shooting Eclipse, it was amazing for me to see how the girls all went berserk over you. These girls were totally losing their minds—and much like everyone else in the cast who experiences those sorts of things, you dealt with it really graciously and wonderfully. Were you at all startled by that?
SAMUEL: I mean, it’s kind of bizarre, isn’t it? Having that kind of attention. I’m not under the microscope in the same fashion that a lot of the other cast members are, so I think I can slide under the radar a little bit more, but getting any attention at all is completely new for me.

HOWARD: Well, it’s been interesting to see how these young women have responded to you and your hair and your accent.
SAMUEL: My hair and my accent are sort of my main assets.

For those of you still interested in what the lad has to say about, well, whatever … you can read the rest of his Interview interview HERE. I, on the other hand, plan to just focus on these photos … despite all the clothing, they are much more interesting to me than the banal back and forth with BDH.

Lindsay Lohan SCRAMs & Speaks

"People should just leave me alone ..."

Lindsay Lohan is speaking out in a new interview with Star magazine where she implores that the public “leave [her] alone and let [her] live”. It would seem that the rumors going around about her alleged illegal alcohol-use are getting to her and she wants the world to know that “enough is enough”. Here is a photo of Lindsay out and about yesterday on an ice-cream run here in SoCal and some excerpts from her new chat with Star magazine:

In her first interview since being forced to wear a SCRAM bracelet, and less than two weeks after the booze monitor detected her consumption of a “small amount of alcohol,” Lindsay Lohan speaks out to Star exclusively about leaving her addiction behind and getting her career back on track. “Enough is enough,” the frustrated starlet says in our June 28 issue. “People should just leave me alone and let me live.” The hard-partying star particularly wants to refute any notion that she’s fallen off the wagon since Star broke the news that the SCRAM went off in the early hours of June 7 while she was partying at Katy Perry’s post-MTV Movie Awards bash. “I haven’t touched any alcohol or anything of the sort,” she insists. Adding: “The lies that get created [are] damaging to my career.” Although Lindsay, who is working to get financial backing for her make-or-break role in Inferno playing porn star Linda Lovelace, is adamant that she’s been playing it straight since she was fitted with the bracelet on May 24, she’s certainly put herself in the way of temptation by hitting the Hollywood party scene hard. “It’s a constant struggle for her to stay sober, one that she faces every day,” an insider reveals in the article.

If you are interested, Lindsay‘s full interview with Star magazine will hit newsstands on June 28. I have to say, I don’t really understand why Lindsay is so surprised by all the attention (both good and bad) she receives. She very often welcomes the attention when it suits her and then wants to say “enough is enough” when it does not suit her. I personally feel she is grossly misinformed by what is actually “damaging” to her career. It’s not the “lies that get created” that are doing the damage, it’s the reckless, dangerous and proven illegal behavior that she has been engaging in for the past few years that are destroying what’s left of her career. Until she is honest with herself and is willing to own her mistakes and PAY FOR THEM, she will never learn and will never get her life back on track. I am rooting for her to do well, I honestly am … but she needs to make serious changes in her life before she can achieve success again. Until then, people are going to talk because her behavior gives way too much fodder for discussion. If she truly wants people to leave her alone, then she needs to find new employment out of the public spotlight … but, to be honest, if Lindsay Lohan actually got her wish, if people actually did not pay attention to her I think she would wither up and die.

‘People’ Magazine Picks The 50 Hottest Bodies Of 2010

Features Zac Efron's hot bod on the cover

People magazine has published its annual 50 Hottest Bodies issue and has made the very wise decision to feature the insanely hot bod of actor Zac Efron on the cover. As you may recall, a few days ago we got to see HOT photos of Zac lookin’ all shirtless and wet in Maui, HI. Here is our first look at this special double issue of People magazine along with some deets about what can be found inside:

‘PEOPLE’ celebrates the 50 Most Amazing Bodies with Zac Efron and Jennifer Love Hewitt leading the pack in this week’s special double issue featuring 28 pages of celebs, swimsuits, and diet secrets. High School Musical’s Zac Efron, 22, officially graduates (with honors!) to sex symbol status as “Best Chest,” along with Common, Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Ryan Phillippe, and Kellan Lutz rounding out PEOPLE’s list of hunks in trunks. Ghost Whisperer star Jennifer Love Hewitt, 31, shows off her amazing bikini body in exclusive photos, and reveals the (real) skinny on how she went from “fat” to fabulous with her diet and exercise tricks. “I ordered a string bikini for the first time since I was 16,” the newly trim and toned Hewitt tells PEOPLE, “and I’m rocking it this year!” When asked if she ever contemplated plastic surgery, she admits, “I’ve definitely thought about it. My hips have always been big. I remember thinking at one point, ‘I know: I’ll get my hips lipo-ed off!’ You can’t – it’s bone. It doesn’t work that way. But everybody thinks about it. And anybody who says they don’t is lying.” Regarding how she feels about her body now, she says, “I’m starting to love it. Not in love yet, but I’m falling in love with my body.” PEOPLE’s Top 10 Body Moments of the Year include Jennifer Aniston’s Smart Water ad, the latest print campaign that left women thirsty to have the 41-year-old’s toned and taut figure; Taylor Lautner’s muscle makeover in the Twilight film series, where the 18-year-old shed his shirt to reveal his newly chiseled torso; and Heidi Montag’s extreme plastic surgery, where the 23-year-old Hills star underwent 10 procedures in one day that left her with DDD breasts, a new chin, and feeling “perfect.” In Perfect Pinups, four bathing beauties – Vanessa Minnillo, Gabrielle Union, Audrina Patridge, and Kendra Wilkinson – strip down to their swimsuits and spill their secrets. After giving birth to her son last December, “My curves shocked me big-time,” admits E! reality star Wilkinson, 25. “It was a whole other woman I was looking at in the mirror. I was used to being fit and skinny. I never had to lose weight until now.” LA-based actress Union, 37, tells PEOPLE she has no desire to be “a freak-show double zero.” Instead, the size 6 star does at least 30 minutes of cardio three times a week so her figure remains “fit – but with boobs and a butt!” She adds, “I’ve gotten to the point where I love the skin that I’m in.” From calorie counting to plastic surgery, five stars – Lisa Rinna, Nikki Blonsky, Garcelle Beauvais, Dayna Devon and Whitney Port – hold a Body Summit, where they sound off about what it really takes to look good in Hollywood. “After I had my twins, there’s a race to lose your baby weight,” Beauvais, 43, tells PEOPLE. “We’re putting too much pressure on losing the weight and fitting into skinny jeans.” And if she wasn’t in Hollywood, “I would be 7 lbs. heavier,” admits Devon, 40. Ballroom pros Cheryl Burke and Maksim Chmerkovskiy are featured in Dirty Dancing with the Stars, a unique photo spread where they recreate scenes from four iconic dance movies: “Dirty Dancing,” Footloose,” “Flashdance,” and Grease.” Finally, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino gives new meaning to Body Language when he demonstrates his signature six-pack abdominals-baring move to male residents of a retirement community in Miami, where Jersey Shore recently filmed. For more information and exclusive video from PEOPLE’s “Most Amazing Bodies” photo shoots, visit

I have to say … I honestly love this annual issue of People magazine cuz I totally see it for what it is … a reason gawk gratuitously at hot bodies … like Zac‘s. And so, just because I love y’all … check out one more photo of Zac Efron‘s hot bod as featured in the pages of People magazine, after the jump … More »

Taylor Lautner Does ‘GQ’ Magazine . . . Again

"I’m in the gym ... doing reps ... reading the books ... I’m gonna be Jacob Black."

Twilight beefcake Taylor Lautner, who we learned last month scored his own comic book, is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of GQ magazine. You may recall that Tay Tay was featured in the pages of GQ last October but that appearance was just a small fashion editorial feature on fitted shirts (tho, we did get to see a bunch of hawt pics) … this time, homie is on the cover! Here is our first look at Taylor on the cover of GQ along with some excerpts from his coverstory interview:

At 18 years old, Taylor Lautner has found himself to be the heartthrob of millions of teens around the world, despite his short acting resume. His loyal Twilight fans have propelled him into the spotlight for his role as Jacob Black, (once a mob of rabid “Team Jacob” members swarmed him in a Brazil, forcing him and co-star, Kristen Stewart, to lock themselves in a small room until the SWAT team arrived). But this level of fame, as GQ senior editor Mickey Rapkin discovers (over lunch at the Olive Garden), comes from an extremely humble and oddly fortuitous beginning – one that involves a karate program, the Blue Power Ranger, and his pilot father. And while Lautner seems to have learned to cope better with his popularity, the young star demonstrates an impressive level of modesty and a sincere appreciation for his comparably quiet home-life for someone experiencing such success so early on.

Taylor Lautner on what it felt like to present at the Oscars, with Kristen Stewart:
“I would have passed out if she wasn’t there!” Lautner says. “You’re looking down and you’re talking to George Clooney, Leonardo DiCaprio—and they’re listening to you!”

Taylor Lautner on having to audition a second time for the role of Jacob Black:
“I’m in the gym, and I’m doing reps, and I’m reading the books, and I’m studying the character. I’m just saying to myself, ‘I want this role. I love this role. I’m not gonna lose it. And I’m gonna know it better than anybody, and I’m gonna do that extra
rep, because I’m gonna be Jacob Black.’ ”

Taylor Lautner on if he’s considered getting his own place:
“Um, you know, not so much. There’s really no point. I’m so busy. I really haven’t thought about it…. The thing I love is that my home life hasn’t changed. I still help out with the garbage. I still help out with the lawn.”

Taylor Lautner on being careful about his rep as a “beefcake”:
“Originally I was supposed to take off my shirt. The script [of Valentine’s Day] said we were walking into school and Willy takes off his shirt. I said, ‘Whoa, whoa, whoa. Time out. He’s gonna take off his shirt in the middle of school? No, no, no. The reason I took off my shirt for New Moon is because it’s written in the book that way. And there’s reasons behind it.”

Awww … our little Taylor is becoming a man so quickly. One day he’s featured somewhere in the pages of the biggest men’s magazine in the world and the next he is gracing the cover with his own coverstory interview. My, how time flies. After the jump, check out one more photo from Taylor‘s GQ photospread to see what’s in store for you when you buy this magazine when it hits newsstands next week … More »

Kylie Minogue Does ‘BlackBook’ Magazine . . . Again

“I have big ambitions. But I’m really quiet about it."

Kylie Minogue, who just launched a new look for her official website today, is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of BlackBook magazine. In her coverstory interview, Kylie talks about her new album Aphrodite, her new single and music video for All the Lovers, the new musical she is working on and the big ambitions she keeps under wraps … Oh and she looks freaking fantastic in the accompanying photospread. Here is our first look at Kylie on the cover of BlackBook and some excerpts from her interview:

“The [All the Lovers] video came down to two treatments, including one that was a little gentler. But the general consensus was that we should go with the edgier option,” she says. Shaking her head, she adds, “I don’t exactly know how we’re going to pull it off.” It’s the mass of people, not the prospect of a little skin, that has Minogue worried. This is, after all, a woman who regularly uses and markets her sexuality to her advantage—even if that means being taken less seriously. “I have big ambitions,” says Minogue, once the most-groped wax figure at Madame Tussauds’ famed London gallery. “But I’m really quiet about it. What’s that saying? ‘Never let people know how much you know.’” Although she’s a shrewd business mogul, it’s Minogue’s body, rather than her brain, that generates the most buzz. Take, for example, her career comeback at the turn of the millennium—thanks, in large part, to a revealing pair of gold booty shorts … Aphrodite, executive produced by Stuart Price, the go-to wunderkind for artists from Madonna to New Order, is an important album for Minogue. It’s her first release since she toured America in 2009, and expectations are high that this will finally be the record that breaks her through, once and for all, into the U.S. market … “I don’t think I’ve ever felt like this about an album.” And it shows. “Although I’m not taking the title too literally,” she says, “Aphrodite is the goddess of love, and as far as the music goes, there’s a feeling of euphoria on this one.” Perhaps this new sound reflects her current state of mind? “Am I happy right now?” she asks. “What’s happy? I have moments of happiness and sometimes they’re even strung together, but I definitely have dark moments, too. Thankfully, those don’t last very long. I can go down very quickly, but I won’t stay there” … With William Baker, her creative partner for the past 16 years, Minogue is also at work on a new Mamma Mia!–style musical, weaving together her songs and an original story. “We’ve been talking about doing it forever,” she says. “I would like to get a couple of writers involved. I think we’ll probably co-direct it.” Laughing at the absurd loftiness of it all, she adds, “Don’t let us get bored for five minutes—we’ll come up with another project! My dad has always said since the very beginning, ‘Kylie, you know you can say no to any of this. You can walk away from the whole thing if you want.’ But I’m a people-pleaser. ‘No’ doesn’t come naturally to me.”

As you may recall, Kylie was previously featured in BlackBook magazine last August but this time, she’s the featured cover star! The fairly long BlackBook interview HERE gives a nice overview of Kylie‘s entire career, mostly interesting to folks who aren’t too familiar with her work. I, for one, would’ve liked more focus and more details about her new projects … but I am not complaining at all. Especially after getting to check out her amazing BlackBook magazine photospread — which you can check out, after the jump … More »
