Best And Worst Celebrity Looks Of The Week

Shia-LaBeouf-Nymphomaniac

Last week on Best and Worst Celebrity Looks of the Week, we saw Camilla Belle wearing something diabolical. This week, Shia LaBeouf (above) clearly takes my WTF spot for the BEST, WORST, and most WTF look of the week. But do you agree? See what others wore this week below (and ask yourself, “Did Laura Prepon do something to her face?”) and make your choices!

Busy Philipps Actually Lives the Way She Wants Her Kids To Grow Up

Busy Philipps is great – we all know it, we’ve discussed it, what else is there to say? Well, nothing really, besides the fact that her reign of excellence continues in a recent interview with The Huffington Post, where she reveals her approach to teaching her kids how to be healthy (and ignoring society’s weight standards during her second pregnancy):

“Like most things in this business, I think that you have to do what’s right for you and you can’t be too concerned about what some magazine is going to write about you. We’re in a business where a lot of people are blessed with pretty incredible bodies, that they work hard for or comes naturally, and not everybody has the same body.”

According to Philipps, staying healthy is priority during pregnancy and women “should be given a break” when it comes to packing on the extra pounds — especially by those dubious doctors!

“It’s interesting when people make comments about celebrities’ weight gain or lack of weight gain as if they’re a medical professional that’s treating that celebrity,” she notes. “Like, ‘This doctor does not treat Jessica Simpson, but thinks her weight is unhealthy.’ If you don’t treat her, then how do you know?”

After the arrival of daughter Birdie Leigh, now 4, the actress took her time regaining her post-baby bod — a journey, she says, lasted almost a year — preferring to instead instill a positive attitude (and approach) in her little girl.

“I wanted to be healthy for her and have a healthy body image so that she hopefully grows up to see that her self worth isn’t defined by how thin she is,” Philipps explains.

I’d say that’s a good way to live. Also, sorry about two body image posts in a day – it’s Sunday, so it’s slow. Here’s a photo of my dog to make up for it. His name is Milo:

Until tomorrow!

Let’s Talk About Busy Philipps!

You guys, I never knew how much you loved Busy Philipps! She showed up in that picture of Michelle Williams and Jason Segel that one time, and you guys flipped out. How could I have known?

But now that I know how strongly you feel, and how strongly our lovely new writer, Bobby, feels (by the way, guys, how awesome are your new writers?), I couldn’t hold back this interview once I found it. Especially because after reading it, I love her a little bit too.

Here we go:

What’s your secret/hidden talent?
I’m very crafty, and it’s not really a secret since the invention of Twitter and Instagram. But I make these pretty awesome 3D sculptural cakes and I make my daughter little crafty things and we do a lot of that stuff at my house, so it’s not a secret. Just my talent.

What’s your guiltiest pleasure?
You’re going to think I’m so boring … I don’t believe in guilty pleasures. If you enjoy something, there’s nothing guilty about it.

If you were on a reality show, what would it be called?
I would never be on a reality show.

Who’s your ideal drinking buddy, living or dead?
I don’t know now, but I remember when I was on “Dawson’s Creek,” Vince Vaughn had come to do re-shoots for some movie in Wilmington and I really wanted to go drinking with him … so I wanted to stalk him and find him and ask him. [laughs] Not now, not at this point, but 10 years ago I really wanted to go drinking with Vince Vaughn.

What’s your biggest peeve?
I have the same pet peeve as Anderson Cooper, which is bare feet in public. I hate it. It so grosses me out, especially in New York. Oh my God, New York in the summer with people and their feet in their sandals and their flip-flops, like get it away!

I love how it’s not anything really groundbreaking, but it still makes me want to hang out with her.  Like, I want to make fancy cakes too, Busy!  I want to reminisce about Vince Vaughn and share prudish but deep feelings about feet.  I want the same things you want.  Let’s want them together.
