Rihanna: Lipstick Draws Attention Away From Flaws

Rihanna: Lipstick Draws Attention Away From Flaws

Rihanna is seen here sporting longer hair and even shorter shorts in New York City a couple of days ago. She always looks put together — even when she’s showing off a bit of skin, right?

If anyone knows a thing or two about looking their best, it’s RiRi. Her style says cute and comfortable to me. The Barbadian singer opened up to “Elle” magazine about a few things…here’s an excerpt:

Her pick for “world’s sexiest woman”: “Penelope Cruz is the sh-t. If I could wake up and look like her tomorrow, that would be great. Mia Wallace [Uma Thurman’s Pulp Fiction character] is gangsta. She’s epic. I’m going to do that bob again. Those bangs.”

Words to live by: “‘Avoid obviousness.’ That is a quote by Leonardo DiCaprio. That’s what makes you create something, that’s the excitement, that’s the thrill.”

Her favorite beauty product: “Lipstick. It draws attention away from any flaws. When someone is wearing lipstick, you just assume they’re wearing a full face of makeup. And guys are stupid–they won’t notice when you’re not.”

It’s funny that she would want to wake up and be Penelope Cruz if she could. It just goes to show you that celebrities have their own insecurities and that no matter who you are, you always have things about yourself that you might want to change. Who would you want to be if you could?

On not being able to please all the people, all the time:
“Now I feel like if I smiled for a paparazzi photo—not that I ever would—that’s exactly what people would be desecrating me for. They’d be like, ‘now you’re going to give it up, now you’re a sellout.’ like, okay. What do you want? What would you like?”

On when she realized how big Twilight would be:
“The day the movie came out there was a picture of me—in the New York Post, I think. I was sitting on my front porch, smoking a pipe with my ex-boyfriend and dog. And I was like, Oh shit, well, I have to be aware of that.”

Stewart on letting her career evolve naturally:
“Never at any point have I sat down and plotted how I should proceed from here on. As soon as you start thinking about your career as a trajectory—like, as if you’re going to miss out on some wave or momentum—then you’re never doing anything for yourself anyway. Then you’re truly, actually, specifically working for the public. You’re turning yourself into a bag of chips.”

Justin Theroux talks acting, the paparazzi and tabloids

Justin Theroux talks acting, the paparazzi and tabloids

Justin Theroux is featured in the new issue of “Elle” magazine where he discusses everything from wearing the color black, to the paparazzi, acting and the tabloids.

As far as wearing all black, he said, “Whenever I put on a colored thing I feel like I’m in a costume. Like when I put on a gray shirt.”

With regard to acting, he said, “Acting is a job of permission. Someone has to give you permission to do it. But I have started to be like, ‘I only want to do things that I want to do’, and writing has afforded me the luxury. Being handed a well-thought-out, beautifully written piece of material that I don’t have to affect at all, except for performing it. It’s a joy to read something I have no desire whatsoever to change. Writing is hard.”

On the topic of the paparazzi, he revealed, “My life changed a lot. More people are like, ‘Hey, man!’ And I don’t think that’s from my role in John Adams. But it only changed as much as I engaged with it, and I learned very quickly; Don’t ever engage with it. Just JKL. It was a learning curve, but it wasn’t as traumatic as you might expect. It’s just annoying. Occasionally you’ll get a stewardess congratulating you on, I don’t know, whatever, some three-headed baby we just had.”

Lastly, he talked of the tabloids, adding, “I can’t get over how terrible the narrative is, just how poorly written it is. It’s worse than a telenovela. It’s so dramatic. Like, ‘They’re broken up, they’re together, they’re storming out, storming in, rushing out, rushing in.’ They make every celebrity look like a schizophrenic.”

Kristen Wiig covers ‘Elle’; Talks Getting Naked In ‘Welcome To Me’

Kristen Wiig covers 'Elle'; Talks Getting Naked In 'Welcome To Me'

Comedic actress Kristen Wiig appears on the cover of the latest copy of “Elle” magazine and inside she talks about getting fully naked for her role in her new flick “Welcome To Me”. She also discusses the idea that she has been categorized as an actress. Can she only do comedy roles?

Being categorized: “It’s not necessarily a bad thing. You have to have some sort of context for a person to register in your brain, and I was introduced to the world as a cast member of SNL. But I’ve always wanted to do dramatic stuff, to write and direct, do a lot of different things. Comedy is where my heart lies, but there’s also something really satisfying about being able to step away with a small crew, become a character and get to know her for a few months at a time.”

Her upcoming lead role in Welcome to Me: She plays a woman with borderline personality disorder who wins the lottery, quits her meds, and starts a TV talk show. “I’d never read a character like that. I got to a scene where it read, ‘She’s fully naked,’ and I remember thinking: If I do this movie, I have to do this scene, because it’s really important to this script.”

Did Katie Holmes hint at divorcing Tom Cruise in Elle Magazein six weeks before she filed?

Six weeks before Katie Holmes filed for divorce from husband Tom Cruise, she sat down with Elle Magazing for a photo shoot and cover story. In the article Katie hinted that she was entering a “new phase” of her life. Was she hinting at her divorce before anyone (including Tom) knew anything about it?

Talking about being in her 30s, Katie is quoted as saying: ‘I definitely feel much more comfortable in my own skin. I feel sexier. I think in my 20s, it’s like you’re trying too hard to figure everything out.

‘I’m starting to come into my own. It’s like a new phase.’

It is worth noting that Katie seductively flashes her sheer black bra in an unbuttoned top – as she appears to be rebelling against reports that Tom controlled even her wardrobe choices.

Also in the interview, which took place in mid-May and appears in the magazine on sale on July 17th, Katie appeared to respond negatively to a question about being ‘Mrs Tom Cruise’.

The 33-year-old star said: ‘He has been Tom Cruise for 30 years. I know who I am and where I am and where I want to go, so I want to focus on that.’

And a source present at the interview told the New York Post that Katie didn’t appear to be happy in her relationship with Tom at the time.

The source said: ‘Katie didn’t speak about Tom in a lovey-dovey way at all. She deflected the Tom questions and brought them around to herself.’

Katie’s interview with Elle took place six weeks before she filed for divorce from Tom on June 29th.

While the pair are now gearing up for a big divorce battle, as well as what is expected to be a bitter fight over custody of their six-year-old daughter Suri, Katie yesterday reassured fans that she is coping following the split.

Approached as she stocked up on food at Whole Foods in Manhattan, Katie told a New York Daily News reporter: ‘I’m alright. Thank you.’

I think Elle is grabbing at straws here, possibly trying to publicize on the fact that they have Katie Holmes as their cover girl – same time as the actress announces she’s divorcing her husband. Lucky timing on their part!
