Welcome back to Best and Worst Celebrity Looks of the Week! A MERRY FOURTH OF JULY TO YOU! Here’s last week’s, in case you feel like checking in. This week we’ve got Helena Bonham Carter, so you know it’s gonna be good.
Go through the photos and make your picks for who has the BEST, WORST, and most WTF look of the week! Mine are at the bottom.
What do we think of Keira Knightley‘s ensemble? I think she looks like an upside down tissue box. But don’t worry, there’s another look from Ms. Knightley in this post that I think this a lot more fetching. I would have been so chill with this if stopped above the white slip underlay thing.

Short story … Franco has a new movie — “Bukowski” — which is about to be released … it’s about Charles Bukowski, a famous fiction writer who died the year O.J. killed Nicole.
Enter Cyril Humphris, who owns the rights to Bukowski’s autobiography. Cyril says back in 2009 he gave Franco the right to create a screenplay based on the book, but the option expired a year later.
Cyril says Franco’s movie is clearly based on the autobiography … in other words, he ripped Cyril off.
But Franco says in new legal docs Cyril is full of crap. Franco says he was inspired by Bukowski’s writings and independently came up with the idea for the movie.
Sorry, dude – if you option the rights to a movie on Bukowski, let those rights expire and then decide to do a movie on Bukowski, you did not come up with that on your own. You used material you began developing when you optioned that book, thereby making it directly derivative and you need to pay up.
Here’s what I don’t quite understand: James is not broke. He is not some D-List actor with no money to honestly fund his projects, so why be an asshole? Re-option the screenplay and everyone will be happy and you won’t be an asshole. End of.

Demi Lovato has such a fabulously queer essence, and I love her for it. And she loves the gays! She doesn’t really give a shit what anyone thinks – to the point that she thought it might be fun to have someone in a Vladimir Putin mask kiss another man on stage during her concert in the country. LOVE IT!
From Gay Star News (yes, that’s a real thing):
Russians are attacking Demi Lovato after one of her dancers, wearing a Vladimir Putin mask, kissed another man. During a performance of her Pride anthem, Really Don’t Care, two of her male backing dancers shared a kiss. One of them was naked apart from a portrait of Putin attached to his underwear.
Thousands of her fans tweeted using the hashtag #DemiHurtsRussianLovatics, saying they were angry about the incident.
‘She has no right to act this way. This has nothing to do with politics,’ one said. ‘She should continue singing and leave politicians to deal with their countries laws on their own.
‘What has she achieved?… If she’s trying to protect gay rights, she’d better find another way. Offending the president of a foreign country is unacceptable’.
Others were less than coherent, using social media to send insults and threats over the incident. And others even suggested she should be banned from Russia full stop.
‘Because of this the fans have turned their backs on her and she will very likely be banned from entering out country,’ one said. ‘And then they might ban all foreign artists. Bravo Demi.’
Yo, Russia, y’all really need to chill. You would’ve thought after all that vodka, you’d be a lot more low key – or maybe just too drunk to give a shit. I know it’s their law and she disrespected them, etc, but fuck that. Sorry, I don’t think homophobia is excusable – not when it leads to arrests and violence and even death for some people. I say good for her. Do you, Demi!
Also, for the fans who called this the “most disappointing thing in [their] entire lives”, you probably need to reexamine your lives, I’m thinking. A little perspective goes a long way.

While married to Gwyneth Paltrow – or rather, while consciously coupled with her, I suppose, since they’re not actually divorced – Chris Martin followed a strict vegetarian diet. One would think that a grown man could choose which foods he eats, but Goop runs a tight ship and is not into animal products, apparently.
Well, worry no more – Chris changed his diet for “various reasons” and enjoys a bit of fish and whatnot now that he’s on his own… and he won’t apologize for it!
From BBC Radio 2 (via Radar Online):
“I felt like you should only eat something that you would be able to kill,” the Coldplay singer explained to BBC Radio 2. “I don’t know why on earth we’re talking about this. I have got to stop talking or there’ll be some sort of headline. Could you kill a fish? I wouldn’t like it but I probably could, so I’ll eat a fish . . . or a giraffe.”
“My daughter has been a vegetarian since she was born,” he revealed. “So, I keep getting tempted to go back, but I don’t eat very much meat.”
I’m a bit of a free spirit and think people should eat whatever they want (and not eat whatever they don’t). It’s all good – the world is a big place, food is plentiful in most places and we’re spoiled for choice, especially in the Western world. Live it up! However, I am a staunch omnivore and haaaaate preachy vegetarians/vegans. Like, chill with your soy and tofu and enjoy it, but I’mma have this steak and you can shut up if you don’t like it.
Also, way to make a child vegetarian because that’s YOUR preference. That’s one of the shittiest things you can do as a parent, I think. No wonder her kids always look so malnourished. And no, I’m not saying you can’t be healthy when you’re a vegetarian or vegan, but children need certain nutrients, sorry.

We haven’t heard much from Rob Kardashian lately – he’s too busy simultaneously stuffing his face/releasing failed sock lines/going to the gym/smoking weed/drinking Sizzurp… and apparently making babies?! According to Rob’s Twitter page – which is verified – he apparently has a son and is spending today with him and his “baby mama”. Whaaaaat?
I mean, did he get hacked? Probably… but others are saying that this is a well-known situation and that his son is actually almost the same age as Mason, Kourtney‘s son. Like, what? I don’t understand any of this and so I’m gonna say it’s not true and this is just a prank, because I just can’t see it.
Do any of you know anything about this?

Lea Michele has been dating
ex-gigolo life coach Matthew Paetz for a few months now, but we’d never seen them out in public together… until now! They took a stroll in a Los Angeles park earlier this week, as you do (??) and looked pretty happy together, I guess… although this looks staged as hell.
How long do you give them? I say another 90 days max.
