January Jones is getting real sick of people asking her who her baby’s father is. I would be annoyed too. While she’s totally down for talking about placenta eating (which she admittedly now regrets making public), she’s never revealed the identity of the father and her son has her last name. But she doesn’t have to tell us who the father is because she doesn’t owe the public anything. Or, in her own words, from The New York Times via Celebrity Baby Scoop,
That’s my son’s business. It’s not the public’s business.
WORD. Uh but then she kinda ruined it a little by adding,
Jack Nicholson once told me: ‘You should never give your personal life away, otherwise people will pick you apart. They’ll never believe in your character.
Women should have lots of secrets. It’s our right to have secrets. Otherwise, what would we write in our memoirs?
Those last two comments really aren’t strong cases for her privacy and don’t do any favors for her image of being standoffish and elitist, but I’m on her side so I’ll let them slide.
By the way, the father is Jason Sudeikis:
SOURCE: I have eyes.

Jennifer Lawrence calls herself “fat” for Hollywood, but is proud of her body (as she should be!) Here’s something to refresh your memory, in case you don’t remember this comment of hers. From EW.com:
In Hollywood, I’m obese. I’m considered a fat actress. I’m Val Kilmer in that one picture on the beach.
Oh, girl, that’s mean. But she may not be saying about this about herself if not for idiots like Manohla Dargis of The New York Times who said,
A few years ago Ms. Lawrence might have looked hungry enough to play Katniss, but now, at 21, her seductive, womanly figure makes a bad fit for a dystopian fantasy about a people starved into submission.
Really sorry she didn’t Christian Bale it for you (talkin’ bout The Machinist). Also in the books Katniss was described as strong despite the lack of food because she would illegally hunt everyday for more food and –oh my God, listen to me, I’m gonna stop right here, I am NOT going to be the person who gets really into defending The Hunger Games.
The super cool Jeffrey Wells of Hollwood Elsewhere said she was “too big” for her male costar, adding,
She’s a fairly tall, big-boned lady (I’ve been in a hotel room with her) [...]
Cool, now let’s ask Jennifer Lawrence what she thought of you in that hotel room.
Then we have the awesome Justin Chang of Variety who said,
Hunger, the one constant in Katniss’ hard-scrabble life, barely even seems to register.
This is a snarky way of saying, “Fatass.” And it’s all so ridiculous because she used to model for Abercrombie & Fitch so how fat could she really be, considering we know how they feel about fat people?
What’s my damn point in sharing all of this? Because the lovely Lawrence clearly listened to this bullshit and lost all of her GROSS DISGUSTING FAT to slim down to play Mystique for the new X-Men movie.
If anything her former Hunger Games physique is perfect for Mystique, as the character is a mighty SUPER HERO. Then again, I get why Ms. Lawrence would feel pressure to slim down as her goddamn costume is PRACTICALLY NOTHING.
Look, I get it: this is how the Mystique character looks. Mystique is blue. But this is f-cking bullshit. In the comic book, Mystique actually wear clothes, and Hollywood can make the decision to say, hey, this is a reboot, let’s try something different, let’s not have our lead actress be practically naked in this one (Rebecca Romijn being the first naked Mystique). You never see male stars in ANYTHING like this. Like why don’t we see Spider-Man rocking a bulge in his skintight outfit but we practically see Jennifer Lawrence’s vagina?
You’re all going to argue with me and tell me I’m wrong anyway, so go for it.
Fun tidbit: January Jones was not invited back to reprise her character of Emma Frost for this film, and rumor is it’s because she had an affair with the director, Bryan Singer. Oh, and look, they managed to figure out a way to get her in sexy underwear for her role:
I’m sure it was crucial for the story.
I’ll get this started for you: “You’re taking this way too seriously” “You’re oversensitive” “It’s just a movie” “You’re probably ugly and/or jealous” “Ugh, why does everyone have to make everything a big deal” “I come here for celebrity gossip not for stuff like this I’m leaving” etc etc.

Since we’re sharing news of fragrance campaigns, Rooney Mara has become the face of Calvin Klein’s new scent, ‘Downtown’. Calvin Klein just reminds me of CKOne and CKBe and therefore the brand has lost its cool factor but who knows, maybe the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo can bring it back!
From WWD again:
The fragrance campaign will feature print ads as well a commercial from Mara’s Girl With the Dragon Tattoo director David Fincher.
Mara said in a statement: “I am very excited to be included in the group of amazing women that have been featured in the iconic advertising campaigns for Calvin Klein fragrances. It’s an honor to be part of a brand with such a legacy of breakthrough advertising.”
A legacy of breakthrough advertising? You’ve already got the job, girl – no need to lay it on so thick. Also, why is David Fincher going to direct? Seems like a weird combo, but he’s pretty solid, so that could be a good sign.

Demi Lovato and Joe Jonas used to date back in the day until he unceremoniously dumped her out of nowhere because it was his “choice” to do so. While Demi was mad at him for a long time, she says they’re totally tight now! It’s not at all awkward or strange… except for the times it is, of course.
From ABC’s Nightline News:
For a few months in 2010, Lovato famously dated Joe Jonas of the famed Jones Brothers. While their relationship and eventual break-up made them a constant paparazzi target, Lovato said the two are now friends — Jonas even tweeted congrats to Lovato for “Demi” this week — but it wasn’t always so easy.
“When you go through heartbreaks and things like that, you always have in mind somebody,” she said. “It’s like when you hear a song on the radio that reminds you of somebody, you’re going to be reminded. But keeping that in mind … it’s a delicate balance.
“We were in a relationship and we broke up, and at one point, I was really mad at him,” Lovato continued. “Now, I can, fortunately, say, that him, and his brother Nick, have always been there for me, and are literally family, and like brothers … we have a great friendship. And we may not be as close as we used to be, but that’s OK.”

Cate Blanchett is an ethereal blonde goddess whose milky skin and floaty Australian lilt make the heavens sing. Well, okay, I don’t feel that strongly at all about her, but lots of people do, and one of those people is Georgio Armani, who have named Cate as the face of the fashion house’s new fragrance, Si.
Australian actress Cate Blanchett has been confirmed as the new face of Giorgio Armani Parfums, a division of L’Oréal Luxe.
Blanchett, who is rehearsing for a play with Isabelle Huppert at the Sydney Theatre Company, will be the face of an advertising campaign for a new eau de parfum called “Sí” that will hit shelves at the end of the summer.
The confirmation comes after weeks of unsubstantiated buzz following press reports about a fragrance collaboration between the actress and Giorgio Armani, who have a long-standing professional relationship. Blanchett has often worn Armani creations on the red carpet and openly expressed admiration of him.
Cate is great, so we’re all for this. As for Armani, I’ve not really smelled any of their stuff (I’m more of a Gucci girl when it comes to perfume, lately) but I’ll give it a sniff when I’m in Sephora.
