“I have a real aversion to talking about my own personal politics just because I feel the influence sometimes, I see the influence of celebrity on our culture. And to think that my opinion is any more informed than anyone else’s or taken as thus is erroneous. I’m just like everybody else. I’m learning, reading, I’m trying to figure it out.”
Reese Witherspoon, the the Associated Press, on why she keeps her personal politics to herself.
Challenge to all Evil Beet readers: Use both the words “thus” and “erroneous” in a sentence today. Then you’ll be as cool as Reese Witherspoon.
Look, I couldn’t even get through two minutes of the preview for Mischa Barton’s new movie, Finding t.A.T.u., about “two teenage girls, Janie who is American and Lana who is Russian, [who] fall in love after meeting at a t.A.T.u concert and are swept into a dangerous world of obsession, drug abuse and murder.”
But if you’re a die-hard Mischa fan, or you just want to watch her making out with a chick, maybe you’ll get through the whole thing. If you do, let me know if something interesting happens in the last two minutes.
Honestly, Mischa, is this what you’ve been reduced to? Damn, girl, get a new agent. Or lay off the weed and start reading your own damn scripts. This looks awful.
Just when you thought anyone was immune from the nip-slip seeking eyes of the paparazzi, we get these shots of Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling at a reading at Hollywood’s Kodak Theater, where her dress slipped down and revealed her bra.
Rowling blushed and quickly recovered from the incident.
I want to tell you all that I did pause briefly before writing this article, and I thought to myself, “Is this what my life has come to? Am I actually going to exploit a photo of the bra of a respected author, when this incident was obviously a total accident and in no way a Lohan-style publicity play? Am I going to make sure to include terms like “nip slip” and “breast” in the photo titles, so as to maximize search traffic? Is this actually how I’m using my Master’s degree?”
The answer, my friends, is yes. Yes to all of it.
And I think I speak for all of us when I implore the paparazzi: Now where’s our Condoleezza Rice nip slip?
“I find it very heartbreaking that my children want to paint a bad guy portrait of me. I feel it comes from their inability to let go of years of programmed anger from their mother, who understandably felt quite hurt when we divorced. In all truth, I tried to give him and their mother continuous love and support and large sums of money. God knows, for years I’ve tried to mend this relationship. Perhaps the trauma of their mother’s passing has made it worse.”
Angelina Jolie’s estranged father, Jon Voight, in a statement, after son James Haven told Marie Claire that “he put my mom through years of mental abuse.”
