James Franco at His Best: The ‘Spring Breakers’ Trailer

Is it possible that Selena Gomez is going to be an actress? I know that she’s an “actress,” but an actress? A Real Actress? I mean, if I can completely block out the Tweener thing she had/has going on, and the fact that she deflowered Justin Bieber probably, I can see it. Maybe.

As for James Franco, he sure is versatile, isn’t he? I mean, ripping Kevin Federline off so eloquently? That’s what that was supposed to be, right?

And hey. It’s coming out right around Spring Break, and that’s so appropriate.

Love It or Leave It: Holly Madison Still Does Really Bad Maternity Fashion

And the thing is, guys, it’s not like the fashion’s getting better as she gets more pregnant, because hey. It’s getting worse. This dress up here? It’s way more awful than this dress, which is what she was eviscerated for wearing back in December:

No, this blue madness is a dream compared to the placenta-looking dress that she rocked to the grand opening of Andrea’s Restaurant at the Wynn Las Vegas & Encore Resort last night. Oh Holly Madison.

I wonder if she’s taking tips from Jessica Simpson on maternity wear these days, huh?

Holly’s getup—love it or leave it?

Beyonce is an Annoying Behind the Scenes, Too (But She’s Still Probably Really, Really Powerful)

I’m sorry, guys, but I just don’t get all the Beyonce-love. I never did, to be honest. Destiny’s Child was never my cup of tea, and whenever I’d hear ‘Say My Name’, I’d immediately roll my eyes and make some kind of crass comment about anti-feminism and haughtily smoke my cigarette and glare off into the distance. I know. I used to be a pretentious little twat at the age of seventeen, but I still held on to a lot of my convictions after all those years, and though that’s not really changed all that much, one thing has: I take myself way, way less seriously as I did ten years ago, but Beyonce? She doesn’t. She totally doesn’t, and I think that’s part of the reason that I’m not so much of a fan. It’s like, why should I take you seriously—you do it enough for everyone “times two. Why can’t you just tell the truth?”

‘Girls’ Lena Dunham Does Interview Magazine

Lena Dunham! We love her. That’s about the size of this.

Here’s Lena’s interview with Interview, and it’s pretty great.

Lena on being a writer-director:

“I think I’ve sort of made it all into one giant job where all of the parts feed one another. I remember going to see Les Misérables on Broadway as a kid. I was so jealous of the girl that got to play young Cosette, but I never had a moment where I was like, Oh, that’s something I could do. I just felt like, Oh, that’s what certain people can do. I also never got good parts in school plays, and it would incense me to no end, but I was like, ‘I’m not cut out for this.’ I started writing plays, and I would be all of the characters in my head, but I never auditioned or anything. It was only when I started making short films in college and I was looking for girls to play the me-ish parts that I thought, Well, maybe I’m just going to try doing this myself before somebody else comes in and handles it. For a long time my acting was just a marriage of convenience between me and these characters that I was writing”

On her “Girls” co-stars:

“It’s almost like when you’re young, your friends take on the romance role, and then guys take on the role of your friends later. I remember huge fights in college that were like, ‘You don’t want me to have a boyfriend because you don’t want me to be happy and not be around all the time!’ Those are the kinds of things that are really hard to imagine an older woman saying… But I’m so glad that those female friendships on the show worked for you, because that was the biggest thing for me-having all those interactions feel genuine. I wanted this show to fill in a gap in TV for women this age. I feel like there’ve been high-school shows—and My So-Called Life is one of them—that have been honest about what teenage girl friendship can be, that sort of Angela-Rayanne romance. That is all stuff that’s been captured really well in the high-school age range. But 24 to 25-that seems like an age that is so specific and that hasn’t been done.”

On writing from a non-female perspective:

“I didn’t want to write in guys who felt like girl fantasies of a good boyfriend or like a voodoo doll of ex-boyfriends whose lives I was trying to ruin. I wanted it to feel like guys that you would know who are a little weird. I do think girls in their twenties accept certain kinds of lesser treatment than they would at other times in their lives. They’re willing to experiment with what it means to be treated well. You know, what’s it like to have a guy who totally demeans one aspect of your life? For Hannah, at least, it’s an intellectual exercise.”

Love, love, love this girl.

Let’s Check on Jordana Brewster, Huh?

If this chick doesn’t look more and more like Demi Moore-or-Heidi Klum every damn time I see her (which isn’t all that frequent), then I don’t know who does (besides Demi Moore-or-Heidi Klum, of course).

Jordana, who I used to love love love back in movies like ‘The Faculty’ and a made-for-TV movie called ‘The 60′s’, hasn’t been doing a whole lot lately other than the TV ‘Dallas’ thing that I’m not watching, but hey. How about a pretty bland interview with Latina, where she talks about her childhood? That’s something, isn’t it?

Jordana on being a kid in Brazil:

“I call myself a Brazilian-American. Now I would say that. When I was living in Brazil I felt very American and when I was in America I felt very Brazilian. I always felt like a fish out of water. High school and middle school were really hard for me and we moved when I was 10, but once I got past those, I realized how lucky I was that my parents traveled with me and my sister. It broadened my perspective.”

On her marriage:

“It’s so amazing to have a husband in the business who can challenge me and we can talk about his work and my work and understand each other in that way. I love getting his feedback and he likes getting mine. And of course, that has pushed me more to consider producing in the future.”

And finally, her future family plans:

“I definitely want to have kids. I want two. I grew up with a sister, but I know Andrew would love boys, but I’ll take what I can get. One thing that I’ve always sort of loved and been enamoured by is the idea of having twins. My dad was a twin, so it runs in the family. Fingers crossed. So we’re thinking about having kids but I don’t know when it’ll happen. I feel very ready now.”

Can I just say, though? Can I just say? Girlfriend’s thirty-two years old. I kind of questioned the having-kids thing because I thought she was more like forty-two, and you know how those things sometimes work out, but then I found out that she’s only thirty-two. And she does not look thirty-two, I’m sorry. It’s not to say that she looks bad, but it is to say that she definitely looks older than her thirty-two years, and she might not be so happy about that in a decade or so, but who knows. Maybe she’s cool and doesn’t really care about shit like that. I’m hoping that’s what it is, anyway.
