Betty White Does ‘The Portland Mercury’ Magazine

She is joined by the late John Ritter ... as a Centaur

Betty White, the amazing actress who is EVERYWHERE these days — from hosting Saturday Night Live to starring in a brand new TV series for TV Land — is featured on the cover of the new issue of the free weekly Oregon magazine The Portland Mercury. On the cover, Betty is bikini-clad and wielding a flaming chainsaw while she rides a Centaur that is half horse, half John Ritter … behold:

Yes, folks, this is a real magazine … and this is the real current coverphoto. I understand the magazine polled their readers what they would like to see on the cover of their mag and this is what they wanted to see. Artist Andrew Zubko really managed to cull together all of the elements that readers asked for into one SPECTACULAR magazine cover. Betty White is a beautiful woman usually but I think her beauty reaches new heights on this magazine cover … wouldn’t you agree?

Kristen Stewart Does ‘Flaunt’ Magazine

Issue No. 109

Twilight superstar Kristen Stewart is featured on the cover (and presumably in the pages) of the new issue of Flaunt magazine. Altho neither her coverstory interview nor her accompanying photospread has been posted online, we do get our first look at her Flaunt mag coverphoto … behold:

Strangely enough, K. Stew‘s issue of Flaunt has been dubbed The Census Issue … tho, I suspect that nothing about her coverstory article has a thing to do with the 2010 census at all. She looks nice enough on the cover, I can’t wait to see what she looks line inside the magazine’s pages.

Outtake Photos Of The ‘Jersey Shore’ Guys In ‘Interview’ Magazine Have Been Released


On Monday we got to see photos of the Jersey Shore guys chillin’ with supermodel Bar Refaeli in a new photoshoot for Interview magazine and today we get to see a few outtake photos that didn’t make it to publication. Shot by photographer Terry Richardson, I have to say that these outtake photos really seem to capture the essence of what Paul Pauly D Delvecchio and Mike The Situation Sorrentino are all bout:

Outtakes from an Interview Magazine photo shoot with the men of Jersey Shore show the Guidos poking fun at themselves, and has all the pictures for you! Celebrity photographer Terry Richardson took the photos of the tanned and toned reality stars. One features Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino doing what he does best: tanning—but this time he’s doing it spray-on style. Pauly D Delvecchio is shot from behind show off his Italian pride with a tattoo and wearing vintage Versace underwear. Another photo features The Situation, Ronnie, Pauly D and Vinny Guadagnino holding an oversized sub. And surprise, surprise, Ronnie Magro is actually wearing clothes in one of the shoots. He’s wearing a pinstripe suit, but don’t worry ladies, there’s still some skin—he’s not wearing a shirt! Pauly D’s wearing a shiny suit with his shiny face reaching into a jar of hair gel so that his hair matches the rest of him.

LOL! I know that some folks might think these guys are being ironic in these photos but I tend to think they are just not smart enough to know that they are being made fun of … OR, in their quest for fame, they don’t care that they are being made fun of. They seem fine that the world is laughing at them, especially since they are laughing themselves all the way to the bank. If you want to see the rest of these outtake photos, you can check them out HERE.

Ryan Phillippe Does ‘Men’s Health’ Magazine

"I still have sadness and complicated feelings about my divorce."

To make up for the horror of seeing Michael Lohans‘ pointy nipples, I present to you ripped actor Ryan Phillippe on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Men’s Health magazine. In his coverstory interview, Ryan opens up about the sadness he still feels about his divorce from Reese Witherspoon and in his accompanying photospread, he shows off his sick bod. Here is our first look at Ryan‘s Men’s Health coverphoto and some excerpts from his interview:

The marriage of Ryan Phillippe and Reese Witherspoon may have ended nearly three years ago – but he admits to having unresolved emotions about the split. “I still have sadness and complicated feelings about my divorce,” Phillippe, who also recently broke up with live-in girlfriend Abbie Cornish, says in the May issue of Men’s Health, on newsstands Tuesday. “But how beneficial is it to keep hanging onto those feelings?” Phillippe, 35, who has two children with Witherspoon, is also surprised by the self-discoveries he’s making as he ages. “I thought the most experience you had, the more certain you would be about life,” he says. “But I’m finding the opposite, man. I’m more in wonder and confusion than I was in my 20s.” For inspiration, Phillippe says he looks to Clint Eastwood, 79, who directed him in 2006′s Flags of Our Fathers. “He’s in the latter part of his experience on the planet, and he’s still growing,” Phillippe says. “He’s open to new ideas and he’s changing the way he sees things … It’s something I want to encourage in myself: Don’t close off.” Judging by his role in the upcoming MacGruber, Phillippe appears to be taking that mission seriously. The actor exercises his comedic chops in the movie, which originated as a Saturday Night Live sketch as a spoof of the ’80s TV hit MacGyver. (Phillippe will appear on SNL April 17.) “I tend to internalize and analyze, but with them, there’s none of that,” Phillippe says of his MacGruber costars, Kristen Wiig and Will Forte. “There was no edit, no judgment. It was just a really free atmosphere.”

As we learned yesterday, Ryan will be hosting Saturday Night Live this coming weekend and I’m certain we will get a taste of his McGruber-ness in one of the skits. I’m still worried that the film will be a bomb (like most films made out of SNL skits) but I’d honestly see Ryan Phillippe in pretty much anything … tho, I’d prefer to see him in nothing at all ;) And speaking of his wearing nothing, check out a few photos from his Men’s Health photospread, after the jump … More »

Domo arigato, Mr. Glambarto

Last year’s American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert may have graced the cover of Rolling Stone magazine last Summer but he is featured on the cover and in the pages of the Japanese version of the mag this year. Here is our first look at Glambert on the cover of the NEW issue of Rolling Stone Japan:

Kellan Lutz Does ‘Interview’ Magazine

"I’ll always see myself as young at heart. I mean, I’m 25"

Kellan Lutz, star of Twilight and the upcoming remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street, is featured in the pages of the new issue of Interview magazine. Kellan was interviewed by Mark Jacobs (who is a writer and not THE Marc Jacobs) for the mag and features in a sexy shower room photospread. Here is one of Kellan‘s Interview magazine photospread photos along with some excerpts from his interview with Jacobs:

Actor, action-movie star, farmhand, Calvin Klein underwear model, and nascent motivational speaker, Kellan Lutz is the man of the moment. The determined 25-year-old Lutz has made a name for himself with roles as a cocky, good-looking jock with rich parents on CW’s 90210, a soldier stationed in Iraq in HBO’s Generation Kill (2008), and a vampire in the Twilight series—a trifecta of mainstream masculinity. He is a superhero-in-waiting, unbothered by an unbuttoned shirt, and thirsty for a franchise phenomenon of his own. Born in North Dakota and raised in Arizona with frequent visits to the family farm in Iowa, Lutz has a backstory that is authentically rugged and thoroughly American—a Bruce Weber–esque narrative that became an actual Bruce Weber narrative in 2004 when Lutz appeared, photographed by Weber, on the cover of the A&F Quarterly magazine. But it’s Hollywood time now, and Lutz is hard at work. There’s this month’s A Nightmare on Elm Street remake; a turn as a hotheaded lacrosse player opposite fellow Twilight-er Ashley Greene in Warrior; the independent murder mystery Meskada with Nick Stahl and Grace Gummer; and then, most importantly, more Twilight (the third installment, Eclipse, is out in June). Lutz believes in paying it forward and the laws of attraction. Even stray pups follow him home.

MARK JACOBS: Hi, Kellan? Where are you right now?
KELLAN LUTZ: I am in my backyard in L.A. hanging out with my two dogs.

JACOBS: You spent time on a dairy farm in Iowa while you were growing up?
LUTZ: Iowa is where the big farm was, where my grandparents lived. After my parents divorced, we would visit them. My mom would send me out to the pigpen, where we had these huge, huge pigs. I would stand there for six hours holding a hose, watering pigs. They’d dive in the mud and shake it off, and I’d go home covered in it. I loved the whole thing of getting wet and dirty and then getting in a warm bath.

JACOBS: You also have experience spraying crops and building silos. Are you aware of how this story reads in New York and L.A.? Anything involving uncontrived hard labor is irresistible to the style industry.
LUTZ: I’d rather do manual labor than sit behind a desk. And as my grandparents got older, I’d fly out there and help out around the farm. We’d tear barns down; we’d build barns. I’d rather be outside rolling hay or driving the tractors.

JACOBS: Then how did you choose Hollywood?
LUTZ: I have a lot of older brothers who messed up in different ways in my mother’s eyes. So I learned from all of their mistakes. I can’t go into detail, but while I was growing up, I always tried to make it a goal to relieve some of the stress my mother went through. I applied myself to school very diligently. I wanted to go out of state so I wouldn’t have to depend on my mother. And L.A., where my father lived, seemed to call to me.

JACOBS: Why acting?
LUTZ: In L.A., I was meeting people who were all actors. My mind started to open up to what acting was. I didn’t realize that Brad Pitt was a real person. I didn’t think he was a robot or a machine, but I thought you were just born into acting—that it’s a family tree, kind of like NASCAR. No one can just say, “Hey, I’m going to be a NASCAR driver.” They need to have some way in. Once I was in L.A., I realized anyone could do this. Why not give it a shot? I started going to a ton of acting classes, and I found I had a real passion for it, probably the biggest passion I’ve ever had in my whole life. So I decided to put school aside, put all my scholarships aside, put everything that I worked hard on for my mother and myself aside, and pursue this roller-coaster ride.

Sarah Jessica Parker Does ‘Vogue’ Magazine

"We four [Sex and the City] women ... have never been better."

Earlier today we got our first look at the new Sex and the City 2 movie poster which features Sarah Jessica Parker‘s Carrie Bradshaw character and right now we get to check out SJP herself on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Vogue magazine. Here is our first look at SJP‘s Vogue coverphoto, which was shot by Mario Testino, along with some excerpts from her accompanying coverstory interview:

On having children with a surrogate mother: “Meeting your children rather than giving birth to them, it’s as if, um, it’s—suspended animation. The gestational experience is gone. It’s as if everything else disappears for a moment, and the world goes silent and—I can’t explain it except to say that nothing else existed. I don’t remember anything but the blanket on the bed that they were lying on and my husband’s face and their faces and my son’s. It’s literally as if sound is sucked from the room. Time stands still. It’s so different, and equally extraordinary.”

On the importance of keeping perspective: “We painted our patio furniture ourselves…. I make my children’s food myself. We put together their high chairs ourselves; we do a lot ourselves! We do our own grocery shopping, we go to the market ourselves, you know? I do my laundry.”

The upcoming Sex and the City sequel: “We four women, despite I guess what a lot of people hope, have never been better. This movie—and maybe it’s because we actually lived together—it was the best! We were together all day long, at night, in the restaurants, in our hotels. It was wonderful.”

Sex and the City getting older: “We’re still playing—uh, I don’t know how old Carrie is! Is she about 42 now? I think Carrie’s younger than I [Parker is 45], and Miranda and Charlotte are younger than they are in real life. Samantha was always the older lady, so she’s 52 now and talks a lot about what comes with that. In the movie. Talks about menopause. Comedically.”

Her introduction to New York and Halston: “I came to New York originally in 1976, and then I got this part in Annie around the corner from Studio 54. I was a little girl, and for some reason they always invited the cast of Annie to Studio 54, so there I was at thirteen and fourteen, and the doorman would usher us in, literally underneath his arms. And it was 1977 in New York City, and you couldn’t be alive and not know the name Halston.”

Her new position with Halston: “There was every reason to say no, and there were very compelling reasons to say yes…. It’s an exciting time at that company. It has had some false starts that are well documented and it is relaunching itself. It has a wonderful legacy, and I couldn’t say no.”

I am so glad that SJP talked about her surrogate babies … I’ve been dying to know as much about her situation as possible. It seems so interesting to me that a couple can have a baby of their own and then just let someone else carry it to term and then delivery it to them at the end of nine months. It sounds like a pretty sweet deal to me. Tho, considering that many women LOVE the magic of carrying their babies inside their own bodies, I guess I’ll have to defer to the experts. In any event, and for whatever reason, SJP and hubby Matthew Broderick now have a beautiful set of twin daughters as part of their little family. After the jump, check out a few photos featured in SJP‘s Vogue photospread … More »

Jake Gyllenhaal Does ‘GQ’ Magazine

"I think I’m realizing my strengths and my faults."

Our dear Jake Gyllenhaal is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of GQ magazine. As y’all should know by now, Jakey poo will be starring in his first big budget action film this Summer, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time … In support of that upcoming film, Jake talks to GQ magazine as well as poses for a few photos … with some of his adoring fans. Here is our first look at Jake on the cover GQ magazine and some excerpts from his coverstory interview where he talks a bit about his late friend and co-star Heath Ledger:

Jake Gyllenhaal has already proven his versatility by starring in films such as Brokeback Mountain and Jarhead. Now he stars in the upcoming Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, taking on his first action role and solidifying his status as a superstar. In an interview with GQ correspondent Chris Heath, Gyllenhaal opens up about his relationship with Heath Ledger, his parents’ recent divorce (“I think it takes a lot of courage for my parents to make the decision that they made”), and his love for his family. As for his own life, Gyllenhaal explains, “I’m trying not to keep things so neat. I think I’m realizing my strengths and my faults. I think I’m trying to see what is me…and what is not me.”

On working with Heath Ledger: “He was very sensitive. He didn’t always have a sense of performance in his everyday life. He knew who he was. I think actors very often, they know how to present something, and that’s part of their job. I think he was just really sensitive. We often used to do a lot of things together, because people were very interested in him and I think we felt safe together.”

On how Ledger’s death affected him: “Even when we did Brokeback and stuff, it was like my work was the only thing that mattered to me. It was like I could only understand or define myself through doing that. Life, I didn’t totally understand. And I think I was afraid of life. And I had success in my work, enough success that you could keep going back there. But after that happened … I think I recognized that it was work. And I recognized that this is for real.”

While I still have my doubts that Prince of Persia will be able to wow audiences, I am really rooting for Jake to succeed with his new film. If he does well, he’s sure to get more action film leads … and action film leads usually have to get all sweaty and half-nekkid on the big screen … which would be a win-win situation for ALL involved. In any event, I’m still very much looking forward to seeing him in Persia — and I’m also looking forward to seeing a few photos from his GQ photospread. Check ‘em out, after the jump … More »
