I Have an Alicia Witt Problem

I do. I don’t understand it. She hasn’t had a major role since, like, Dune (nah, I’m kidding, it was since Cybill), but I get so excited whenever I see pictures of her. She’s just so damn cute. I’ve had a crush on her forever. You know what I think it is? I think it’s the red hair. I think I have a thing for redheads. Which is funny because that is so not true when I look at guys — I don’t find red hair attractive on men at all — but on chicks it’s kind of hot. I told my hairstylist the other day that I kind of want red hair, and she said she thought I’d look cute but that I’m a blonde at heart, so she just didn’t feel like it would be right for me. Whatever. I still kind of want to do it.

Anyway, Alicia’s cute as a button, and when she stands next to Jeremy Sisto I’m honestly not 100% sure which of them I want to make out with more. Okay, it’s Jeremy Sisto, but I did have to think about it.

Winona Ryder Opens Up About that Whole Shoplifting Thing

Winona spoke recently for the first time about her reaction to her December 2001 shoplifting arrest, making the valid point that, in December 2001, it’s not exactly what the nation needed to be focused on.

“I didn’t have this tremendous sense of guilt, because I hadn’t hurt anyone,” Ryder tells Vogue magazine for its August cover story. “Had I physically harmed someone or caused harm to a human being, I think it would have been an entirely different experience.”

Her personal reaction, she says, was “I never said a word. I didn’t release a statement. I didn’t do anything. I just waited for it to be over.”

Still, she says, “The attention was what was embarrassing.” She also expresses dismay that one day the news of her arrest topped stories on the supposed capture of Osama bin Laden.

She also kinda-sorta talks about her kinda-sorta drug problem.

“Two months prior to that, I broke my arm in two places, and the doctor, a sort of quack doctor, was giving me a lot of stuff and I was taking it at first to get through the pain. And then there was this weird point when you don’t know if you are in pain but you’re taking it.”

She said painkillers of the type she was on – such as Oxycodone, which should not be confused with OxyContin – left her in a state of “confusion,” but that her arrest “in a very weird way, was a blessing, because I couldn’t do that [painkillers] anymore.”

Holy Shit, It’s Frances Bean

I haven’t seen pictures of this girl since she was like 8, but she accompanied her mom to her show at the Roxy last night. Is it just me, or does she look just like Kurt? Wow.

Update: I was intrigued by this, so I went back and pulled a bunch more photos of her. I’ve posted them here as thumbnails. My God, this girl is the spitting image of Kurt Cobain. It’s almost chilling.

Update Update: Okay, okay. I know you guys don’t think this is Frances Bean. Read here for more info on this scandal.

A Day in the Life of Paris Hilton, Brought to You by Taco Bell

Does Paris Hilton really need to walk into the Taco Bell? Don’t they all have a drive-thru? Does she really need to ponder solemnly over the menu? Honestly, Paris, save some of that solemn pondering for all that humanitarian work you totally forgot you said you were going to do.

No, Paris Hilton doesn’t need to make an entire photo op out of a trip to Taco Bell. But she did anyway. Probably because Taco Bell’s paying her to, and possibly just because she thinks it’s funny.

Regardless, I want a chalupa right now.

Lindsay Lohan and BFF/on-and-off lesbian lover Samantha Ronson are wasting no time in celebrating Lindsay’s release from rehab and SamRo’s new, even butcher, haircut. While World War III was kicking off over at Hyde, Lindsay and Samantha were both spotted at Les Deux (the photos are from last night). Lindsay later met up with friends at Mel’s Diner in WeHo. SamRo didn’t appear to make the trip.
