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!

Rihanna on seeing Chris Brown: “I’ll do what I want to do”

Rihanna covers the latest issue of Elle Magazine, and in the interview she gives a very candid look into her life, including her relationship with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.

There have been rampant rumors that the couple have rekindled their romance, and even though the public has reacted negatively to the news, the singer insists she’ll “do what I want”.

In reaction to how people felt about her reuniting with Brown after he attacked her:

“I respect what other people have to say. The bottom line is that everyone thinks differently. It’s very hard for me to accept, but I get it. People end up wasting their time on the blogs or whatever, ranting away, and that’s all right. I don’t hate them for it. I’m still going to do what I want to do.”

On her 2009 assault by Chris Brown:

The singer admitted it was “the hardest time of my life. I was angry, sad, confused, torn. I was still in love. And I needed to talk about it.”

She claims recording the Rated R album in 2009 was like therapy:

“That was the only way I could get peace, because it was in my head, and I couldn’t leave it there.”

She believes her attack made her a stronger person:

“It gave me guns. I was like, ‘Well, f***.’ They know more about me than I want them to know. It’s embarrassing. But that was my opening. That was my liberation, my moment of bring it. I wanted people to know who I am. Whatever they take that to be, good or bad, I just want them to know the truth. It’s like, one less skeleton in the closet, one less burden, one less secret; now you know that, so you can say what you want about it. I don’t have anything to hide.”

Sources close to Rihanna fear she’s rebelling:

A source told the New York Post, ‘Her management banned her from reuniting with Chris, but she said she’ll do whatever the hell she wants to’.

Apparently the You Da One performer’s camp fear that she will go on to record an album with Brown just to spite Roc Nation who have desperately tried to stop the two from meeting.

The source continued, ‘Rihanna is rebelling. She says they have been working her too hard and she wants some time to herself.
‘They fear she’ll secretly record an album with Brown, just to defy them.’

Although Rihanna has said she is ‘single and happy’, some of her recent posts on Twitter would suggest differently.

On March 31, she tweeted: ‘If u don’t want me, someone else will… if I’m not good enough!’

She then followed that post with another tweet which could possibly spell out her feelings for Brown.

The tweet read: ‘I’m makin’ u wait….I need to know if ya worthy’.
