Helen Mirren is a film legend, so she could show up at an awards show in a paper bag with a mop end for a wig and old KFC buckets for shoes and no one could say shit because she’s doing her and has earned the right to do so. She didn’t quite go that far at last night’s BAFTAs in London, but she did take a popular hair trend to the pensioner set by dyeing her hair a lovely shade of bubblegum pink, an idea she got from… an unlikely source, shall we say.
“I saw it on America’s Next Top Model, so I decided to have a go.”
First of all, I love that Helen Mirren watches America’s Next Top Model – I didn’t realise anyone still did. Second of all, I love that she has such a buck wild spirit that she didn’t think twice about heading to Katy Perry town with her locks. And while it’s a bit unusual, it certainly doesn’t look bad. I wish I could get away with pink hair, but it’s just not happening. Helen’s move was especially risky considering the BAFTAs are full of British people who aren’t really into bullshit and really are into class, fanciness and sexy accents.
In any case, the BAFTAs red carpet was chock full of stars, from Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman and Ben Affleck to Samuel L. Jackson, Jessica Chastain and more. Check out a gallery from last night’s red carpet below:

Look, I get comfort. I love comfort. A couple of months ago, I found one pair of jeans that turned out to be amazingly comfortable, and then I promptly bought three more pairs of the exact same jeans. Right now I’m wearing my pajama pants, a pajama shirt, a sweatshirt, and a sweater, and it’s not all that cute, but it’s comfortable as hell. I get it. I support it.
But there’s a difference between something that’s comfortable and something that’s an abomination. Sarah Jessica Parker is wearing something that is an abomination.
This is the definition of “too early for this shit.”

Oh, you guys, I’m sorry. When I asked the question of “who is the highest paid actress in Hollywood?” and then put a picture of Meryl Streep right up there at the top, that made it look like Meryl is the highest paid actress, didn’t it? I’m sorry, but it’s just not true. Meryl is on the list, but she’s not at the top. She deserves to be at the top, but she’s not.
Before I let you know the richiest rich lady in Hollywood, let me just show you the top ten list, all right? I’ll go ahead and tack on the amount of money they made in the past year, just so you can cry while you balance your checkbook like I do.
10. Jennifer Aniston – $11 million
9. Kristen Wiig – $12 million
8. Meryl Streep – $12 million
7. Sarah Jessica Parker – $15 million
6. Julia Roberts – $16 million
5. Charlize Theron – $18 million
4. Angelina Jolie – $20 million
3. Sandra Bullock – $25 million
2. Cameron Diaz – $34 million
Ok, but who do you think landed in the number one spot? Who do you think made nearly three times as much as the beloved Meryl Streep? Who do you think made a few million dollars more than Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston combined?
1. Kristen Stewart – $34.5 million
Yes, thanks to them Twilight movies and Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart is the top-earning actress in all of Hollywood. Does anyone else feel physically ill?

So here it is! The first official look at Sarah Jessica Parker portraying Gloria Steinem in the movie that can’t keep sober actors – Lovelace. As you remember, since it happened just recently, Demi Moore dropped out of the project because of her hospitalization due to drugs, and way back when this project was just a blip on the entertainment radar, Lindsay Lohan was being “considered” for the role of Linda Lovelace, which ultimately went to a more capable (and, um, functional) actress, Amanda Seyfried.
While I think that Amanda is actually a pretty decent choice for the LL part (OMG … did you see that? No wonder Lindsay thought that she’d be perfect for this role, all cocaine and abuse aside!), I’m not quite sure yet about Sarah Jessica Parker. Can she play a serious part that doesn’t involve quirky behavior and male submission and shoes? I mean, this is Gloria Steinem, ffs. I wonder what Gloria Steinem thinks of Carrie Bradshaw playing GLORIA STEINEM as a younger woman. My gosh, I didn’t even think of that. I wonder if the film’s producers did.
But wait. Let’s get back to Amanda for a second. She did a recent interview with Glamour magazine, where she talked about being cast as Linda, and you know what her biggest on-set surprise was? All of the pubic hair. Yup. Pubic hair. Amanda, taken aback, said, “What surprised me is the amount of pubic hair! I’m pretty sure I would never do a full frontal in a movie—for personal reasons, I wouldn’t really want to show that.”
Daniel Radcliffe would be rolling in his grave, if he were in a grave.
Well, congratulations to the second line, at any rate. So funny how the fame changes hands in Hollywood, my friends.
What do you guys think about the casting of Gloria Steinem in Lovelace?

Here is something I did not know: Demi Moore was originally slated to play Gloria Steinem in the bio-pic Lovelace.
This shocked me because—I’m sorry if this is rude, but—wasn’t Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle the last thing anyone saw Demi in? And even that was stunt casting. Does Demi really even act anymore?
And it’s all so sad because, like, Demi Moore really was the most talented person to come out of St. Elmo’s Fire, you guys. But the one-two punch of Striptease and G.I. Jane was a bit too much for any career, I guess.
So I kinda didn’t realize Demi Moore was even in the acting biz until today, when everyone started reporting that Demi Moore had been replaced. REPLACED! In the Lovelace movie!
Oof, this doesn’t look good, you guys.
Initial reports claimed that Mary-Louise Parker had won the role of Gloria Steinem.
Wrong! Now we know the truth: Sarah Jessica Parker is going to play the coveted part of Gloria Steinem. SARAH JESSICA PARKER HAS REPLACED DEMI MOORE.
Contrary to earlier reports, Sarah Jessica Parker will be replacing Demi Moore in Lovelace rather than Mary Louise Parker, which Us Weekly reported earlier.
Sarah will be playing the part of Gloria Steinem while Demi focuses on her recovery. Any Sex and the City fan out there should appreciate that this means there will be a Carrie and Mr. Big reunion on the big screen!
Chris Noth has already been cast in the film.
This is terrible! I don’t know how to feel about all this!
Also—and I know this isn’t exactly an age-appropriate casting call, but here goes anyway—I think we should give the role of Gloria Steinem to Jennifer Aniston, just because Jen called Steinem “the sexiest woman of all time.”

Every now and then in the comments of a delightful little blind item, one of you will say “but what’s the point? We don’t even know who this is about!” And that’s fair: it can be frustrating to read some little piece of gossip that’s so intriguing but to not even know who you’re reading about. But you guys, sometimes those blind items get revealed. Sometimes we find out the answer. And this is one of those times.
Let’s get started by talking about a blind item that you’ve heard about here. Do you remember the one about a singer who turned into a “hot disheveled mess” who drinks way too much and keeps a baby monitor on her at all times so that her bodyguard can hear if she starts to die? Yeah, that one is Christina Aguilera. Nailed it.
