Jared Leto is giving us major 1994 vibes

jared leto

Jared Leto is some kind of miraculous creature who hasn’t aged since 1994. Could it be plastic surgery? Sure, but somehow I doubt it. He hasn’t changed at all, besides growing his hair long and joining a rock band and… well, no, he hasn’t changed. UNTIL NOW.

Today, Jordan Catalano changed lives everywhere when he decided to cut off his hair and SERIOUSLY return to 1994. Seriously – put the below photo next to one from then and see if you can tell the difference.

…#gone!

Just like old times, eh? I wonder what Lupita thinks.

Cindy Crawford’s “unretouched” photo was a fake, apparently

cindy crawford

The internet went nuts last week when what we were told was an unretouched photo of Cindy Crawford being hot and looking totally normal and not like a Photoshopped mess. It was refreshing, eye-opening (for some) and downright awesome. But now it seems like even THAT was a sham, and Cindy’s people – as well as her husband Rande Gerber, are calling bullshit and saying that “real” photo was actually… a fake.

TMZ obtained a letter from Cindy’s lawyer which claimed that the photo in question was stolen and “maliciously altered”, which… obviously is not great.

In addition, a statement from celebrity photographer John Russo read: “It has been falsely claimed that this photograph represents an un-retouched image of Cindy Crawford. This is not true. It is a fraudulent altered version of my photograph. I am grateful that this fact has been brought to the public’s attention and that corrections are being run in the media.”

And finally, Rande Gerber was not trying to be married to someone who could look so HEINOUS as Cindy did in the original photo, so he felt the need to publish this photo on Instagram from Valentine’s Day:

Well, thank God THAT’s been cleared up. It’s not like anyone’s ever Photoshopped their Instagram pics or anything! I mean, look – I’m not saying Rande’s photos weren’t real or that the other photos weren’t doctored, but like… really? If Cindy was confident and happy in herself, she wouldn’t care which stomach was hers- and considering the original photo was NOT bad to begin with, it looks even worse – and only serves to make women who are perfectly healthy and “normal” feel bad about themselves. Not here for it, sorry Cindy.

Hilary Duff finally filed for divorce

hilary duff mike comrie

Hilary Duff and husband Mike Comrie separated back in January 2014, but it seemed like they might work things out in the months following. They were seen out together nonstop – likely because they have a child together, but some suggested it was because they were actually going to get back together. That doesn’t seem likely, however, as Hilary has finally filed for divorce – and it’s apparently Mike’s womanizing ways that sealed the deal.

Duff, 27, filed papers on Feb. 20, one day after the Daily Mail reported about Comrie’s behavior during a wild night out at Beverly Hills hotspot Mastro’s.

A source confirms the report to US Weekly, saying the former hockey pro was “aggressively hitting on” his waitress at the restaurant. The insider says Comrie was “calling her beautiful, telling her he wanted to take her out.”

Comrie’s advances, however, were rejected, which prompted him to go “up to another woman,” the source says. The father to 2-year-old Luca then “drunkenly threw money at [the other woman] and asked for sex.”

A source close to Duff tells Us that Comrie’s behavior that night was the final straw. “Hilary finally realized Mike wasn’t going to change,” the insider explains. “He totally blew it and chose to live life like he was single.”

Oh yeah, hell to the no on that one – Hilary made a good decision. If you can’t trust the person you’re with not to lose his damn mind when he goes out without you, it’s definitely not going to work out. It’s a shame, but thank goodness homegirl had enough self-respect not to put up with that.

Michelle Rodriguez is sorry for saying minorities are “stealing” white roles

michelle rodriguez

Michelle Rodriguez has always been known as a hot ass mess, but she took things to the next level this week when she was asked by TMZ on Friday if she was going to join The Green Lantern. Her response?

“That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. Because of this whole ‘minorities in Hollywood’ thing. It’s so stupid. It’s like, you know, stop stealing all the white people’s superheroes. Make up your own.”

Wow. That’s… special. Of course, someone managed to point out what a fuckwad she sounded like, and she decided to issue a lengthy apology via Facebook on Sunday:

If you can’t be bothered to watch the video, here’s what she has to say:

“I stuck my foot in my mouth — once again. I have a tendency to like, you know, speak without a filter. Sorry about that. What I really meant was… there’s a language, and the language that you speak in Hollywood is a successful franchise. I think that there there are many cultures in Hollywood that are not white, and can come up with their own mythology.”

“It doesn’t matter what culture you come from. I’m just saying that instead of trying to turn a girl character into a guy or instead of trying to turn a white character into a black character or a Latin character, I think that people should stop being lazy and, you know, that people should actually make an effort in Hollywood to develop their own mythology.”

Yes, Michelle, in a perfect world, Hollywood would be happy to finance films written/directed by and/or starring mostly minorities, but that’s not reality. Not to mention all the white-washing of roles that are actually MEANT to be played by people of colour… but whatever.

Ryan Phillippe: Super Feminist

ryan phillippe

You don’t hear too much about Ryan Phillippe these days, and probably for a reason – after all, he hasn’t made many good movies, has he? I mean, at least he’s still making movies, sorta? In a new interview with Elle, Ryan opens up about being probably the biggest feminist EVER (yes, that’s sarcasm), all the stuff he’s up to and his battles with depression.

On Feminism: “I’m very feminist, man. I was raised by four women, my dad worked the 4 P.M. to midnight shift, so I was basically raised by four women. I’m so pro, pro female. There were some people laughing at Patricia Arquette’s statement at the Oscars, but, in the state of California, women make 83 cents on the dollar compared to the man’s full dollar. I mean over time, and over bodies, that adds up! It’s not equal!”

On Depression: “You know, depression has been a huge obstacle for me ever since I was a child. As you get older I think it decreases some, but I’m just innately kind of a sad person. I’m empathetic, and I take on the feelings of others and transpose myself into the position of others. … There’s great value to it, but it can also ruin your fucking life. But, that being said, if it was a choice between being this way or being completely ignorant I’d prefer to suffer through the sadness than to be a complete moron with no feelings.”

On Doing Stuff: “I’m still acting… I produced a documentary… I’m really involved in helping to liberate a small country… And then I was writing and directing my first independent film; I’m directing my second this spring. I’m raising kids, as a single father, and I’ve got this startup. I get comments all the time on social media like, ‘What ever happened to him?’ or ‘Where have you been?’ Like, I’m doing stuff! It may not be stuff that you see, but I’m doing stuff.”

Well, that clears that up. He still looks pretty good, though, doesn’t he? If you’re into that sorta thing.

Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney plunged into freezing water for charity

Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney recently announced (confirmed) their engagement, but instead of sitting at home planning their wedding, they’ve been hitting the streets (or Lake Michigan) in the name of charity. That’s right, the happy couple took part in the Chicago Polar Plunge on Sunday to benefit the local chapter of the Special Olympics.

A few other celebs were on hand for the special occasion, including Taylor’s Chicago Fire co-stars David Eigenberg, Randy Flagler, Jon Seda and Brian Geraghty and Vince Vaughn, who was the guest of honour because a bunch of people on Twitter got the hashtag #VinnyDippin trending? Whatever, it was for a good cause.

Justin Bieber is officially 21 now

Justin Bieber turned 21 on Sunday, and now he can legally drink alcohol in America! Yeah! Someone get him his first beer! After all, isn’t life wonderful?



In all seriousness, JB apparently rented a private island for the special occasion and got what the kids probably call crunkadelic (is that still a thing? Let’s pretend it is) all night long. It looked like a real amazing time!

Happy belated birthday, Justin. Let’s hope you make good on your promise not to be a dickhead this year!
