  • Jennifer Lawrence Rocks New Short Haircut at GLAAD Media Awards: Picture

    Jennifer Lawrence has always been a cut above -- and now she has the hair to match. On Saturday, April 20, the Silver Linings Playbook Oscar-winner debuted a short new 'do at the 2013 GLAAD Media Awards presented by Ketel One Vodka, where she was joined by celebs including Drew Barrymore, Charlize Theron, Darren Criss, and Leonardo DiCaprio.

    Prior to taking the stage with famed movie exec Harvey Weinstein, the Hunger Games actress posed for photographs on the red carpet inside the JW Marriott at L.A. Live. Her formerly long blonde locks were shorn into shoulder-length layers with side-swept bangs, like a longer version of model Karlie Kloss' chin-length chop, which The New York Times dubbed "the haircut of the year" in January. The chic style complemented her equally chic ensemble: a black flared David Koma dress with sheer detailing, matching black Nicholas Kirkwood heels, and jewelry by David Webb.

    Lawrence -- recently named one of TIME magazine's 100 Most Influential People in the World -- was on hand to introduce former President Bill Clinton, who received the Advocate for Change Award. During his acceptance speech, he joked that he was like a dinosaur next to the 22-year-old star.

    It looked like "she was touring the Museum of Natural History" backstage, Clinton, 66, quipped playfully, noting that "she was like 2 years old" when he took office in January 1993. (In fact, that's not an exaggeration; the actress was born in August 1990.)

    Lawrence, for her part, endeared herself to both the politician and the crowd when she tripped over President Clinton's name in her introduction and accidentally read some of Weinstein's lines instead of her own. "It's not my comfort zone," she recently told U.K. magazine Fabulous of speaking in public. "Making movies is where I belong. I shouldn't be heard just talking. So, when I'm doing movies, I'm really happy. That's where I'm comfortable, that's my home. When you put me on a red carpet or on a stage, I turn into chihuahua Jennifer."

  • Reese Witherspoon Denies Telling Police "Do You Know My Name" During Arrest

    Friends Season 1--10 DVD Box Set(http://www.hotdvdplay.com/friends-seasons-1-10-dvd-box-set.html)

    News of Reese Witherspoon getting arrested was shocking, but what may have surprised fans even more was what the sweet, Southern mom of three reportedly said to police officers.

    Reese Witherspoon1

    According to the police report, "Mrs. Witherspoon asked, 'Do you know my name?' I answered, 'No, I don't need to know your name.' I then added, 'Right now.' Mrs. Witherspoon stated, 'You're about to find out who I am'."

    But a source tells E! News that the star insists it didn't go down like that.

    "It wasn't like that," the source said, and explained that when the officer was handcuffing her, Witherspoon simply asked, "Don't you need to know my name?"

    The source also added that there was no screaming or any sort of physical altercation between Witherspoon and the officer. "She was being protective of her husband and was fearful of the situation," they tell us.

    Witherspoon and husband Jim Toth were arrested and jailed early Friday morning in Atlanta for an alleged DUI and disorderly conduct, after getting pulled over under suspicion of driving while intoxicated. Around 3:30 a.m. the same day, the couple were released on bond. A court date has been scheduled for Monday at 8 a.m. in Atlanta Municipal Court.

    But you wouldn't know the duo had any trouble this weekend by looking at them. The couple seemed more than fine, as witnessed by this photograph of them leaving their New York City hotel earlier today to attend Reese's premiere for Mud.

  • Emma Watson

    AboutEmma

    Famous for playing the role of Hermione Granger in all seven adaptations of the "Harry Potter" film series, actress Emma Watson was one of those rare actresses who enjoyed a balanced, normal life despite being one of the most recognized and highest-earning stars of the films. Her meteoric rise to fame was nothing short of magical. With virtually no professional acting experience, the nine-year-old Watson was selected to co-star in "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" (2001) and was propelled into international stardom with her very first film. Her portrayal of the bossy, miss-know-it-all Hermione was pitch perfect, so it was no surprise when she was recast alongside Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint in subsequent installments. In her late teens, Watson showed her fans a more stylish, sophisticated side. She became a regular at fashion shows, befriended legendary fashion icons like Karl Lagerfeld and often arrived at red carpet events swathed in haute couture. The fashion house Burberry took notice of the budding fashionista and signed Watson to be the new face of the brand in 2009. With a coveted fashion contract under her belt and worldwide acclaim as one of Harry's brainy sidekicks, the multi-dimensional actress successfully made her way into cinematic history.

    Born on April 15, 1990 in Paris, France, Watson was raised by her father, Chris, and her mother, Jacqueline, both of whom were attorneys. Living in the City of Lights until she was five, Watson moved with her mother and younger brother, Alex, to Oxfordshire, England after her parents divorced. She first expressed an interest in acting when she was six, which led to studying song, dance, and theatre at the Oxford branch of Stagecoach Theatre Arts. She attended The Dragon School, a renowned prep school in England, and moved on to HeadingtonSchool, a private all-girls school. She took the lead role in several school plays, including "Arthur: The Young Years and The Happy Prince" (2000). Meanwhile, auditions for "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone," the adaptation of J.K. Rowling's popular fantasy-adventure novel, began the previous year. Casting agents discovered Watson through her Oxford theater teacher and asked the budding thespian to audition for Hermione. After eight callbacks, Watson earned Rowling's approval atop one of the most coveted roles in history.

    "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone," which followed the travails of young Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) and his transition into the world of magic at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, became an instant blockbuster, breaking opening day sales records and was the highest-grossing film that year. Watson, like her co-stars, received critical acclaim for her earnest performance as the Muggle-born, bookish Hermione. Starring again as Hermione in "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" (2002), critics singled her out above co-stars Radcliffe and Grint, giving her kudos for an admirable performance. In 2004, "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" - which veered into darker territory than its predecessors - hit theaters. Watson was appreciative of her character growing into a more assertive role in the series and expressed her continued excitement for playing the character in numerous interviews. In the next installment, "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" (2005), Watson's performance reached new milestones. The young actress reportedly loved all the arguing between the three teen co-stars, which she felt were more true to character. Meanwhile, the Potter phenomenon even caught the eye of British royalty - Watson appeared as Hermione in a Potter spin-off called "The Queen's Handbag" (2006), a special mini-episode celebrating the 80th birthday of Queen Elizabeth II.

    The fifth adaptation of the Potter franchise, "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" (2007) was another mega-hit, setting an opening weekend gross of almost $333 million worldwide. Watson's star kept shining brighter - in the same year, she and fellow wizards Radcliffe and Grint left imprints of their hands, feet and wands in front of Grauman's Chinese Theater in Hollywood. In spite of the financial success of "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," all three teen stars expressed hesitation in continuing their roles for the final two adaptations. The media speculated that she played hard-to-get in an attempt to increase her paycheck, rumored to be in the $4 million-a picture-range. Watson quickly explained that she hesitated because signing on for two more films represented another four-year commitment on her part. She eventually signed for the role after conceding that she loved Hermione's character so much that she couldn't bear someone else playing it.

    Like many child superstars, Watson grew up on the film set and under the scrutinizing glare of the media spotlight. But unlike many of her contemporaries who became infamous for partying, drinking, and drug use, Watson managed to keep her life balanced and private. She credited strong family ties for keeping her grounded, as well as the support she received from her co-stars Radcliffe and Grint, both of whom she said had grown to be like her siblings. More notably, she shared a love of learning with her on-screen alter ego. She was a serious student, maintaining top grades while filming the Potter series. In the fall of 2009, Watson headed off to study at ColumbiaUniversity in New York City.

    As the film series progressed, so did Watson's fashion sense. Watson ditched her tweeds in favor of more glamorous get-ups from high-end designer lines like Chanel, Viviene Westwood and Marc Jacobs. She was photographed wearing Chanel to numerous red-carpet events and movie premieres, which sparked a rumor that she was deemed to be the new face of the famed brand, replacing actress Keira Knightley.Alas, the Chanel deal never materialized. But Watson did become the new spokesperson for British fashion house Burberry. In 2009, she modeled Burberry's signature trench coat and other accessories in the brand's autumn collection. In between photo shoots, filming and college, the young glamour maven design a clothing line for teens that benefited UNICEF.Emma1

    Watson took on other roles in lesser known ventures when she wasn't filming Potter. She starred as the voice of Princess Pea in the animated feature "The Tale of Despereaux" (2008), which starred Dustin Hoffman, Sigourney Weaver, and Matthew Broderick. She also appeared in the critically acclaimed television adaptation of the novel "Ballet Shoes" (2007), where she played one of three sisters who struggle to follow their dreams. Watson reprised her role as Hermione in the sixth installment of the series, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" (2009), while filming began on the final adaptation of the beloved series "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" that same year.

  • Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries Divorce Finalized

    At long last, Kim Kardashian has been granted the divorce she's wanted from Kris Humphries.300-Humphries-Kardashian-032712-jpg_234530

    The pregnant "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star was in court Friday morning with attorney Laura Wasser and was granted a dissolution of marriage due to "irreconcilable differences." The court must sign off on the judgment by June 19. Humphries was not in court again today.

    Team Humphries consented after the judge told the NBA player would never prove fraud and recommended that he just needed to "settle and move on," "omg! Insider" has learned.

    "As a result of this agreement, we will not have a trial in this case," Judge Hank M. Goldberg said. "I want to congratulate the attorneys on both sides. This is a sensible way to resolve this case."

    The reason the case carried on for well over a year is that Humphries wanted an annulment rather than a divorce, on the grounds that Kardashian committed fraud. He reportedly was seeking $7 million from his now ex-wife.

    According to TMZ, Humphries will receive no money and each party will pay their own attorney's fees. The site also reports that although Humphries was potentially going to be fined for no-showing in court last week (because he has been practicing for the NBA playoffs), Kardashian asked the judge to drop that penalty.

    Kim and Kris married on August 20, 2011, and separated on October 31, 2011. They were married for 72 days, and the divorce took 535 days to be finalized. In other words, their separation period was more than 7 times the length they were actually married for.

  • Alexis Bledel Debuts Octagonal-Cut Diamond Engagement Ring

    AlexisBledelAlexis Bledel: The Dukes Of Hazzard Seasons 1-22 DVD Box Set(http://www.hotdvdplay.com/the-dukes-of-hazzard-seasons-1-21-dvd-box-set-1.html)

    That's some sparkler!

    Alexis Bledel debuted her engagement ring on the red carpet Wednesday. The actress, perhaps best known for her roles on "Gilmore Girls" and in the "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants," was at the Los Angeles premiere of her new TV movie, “Remembering Sunday."

    Outfitted in a basic colored black-and-ivory dress with sexy cutouts, the 31-year-old let her new accessory -- given to her by fiancé Vincent Kartheiser, 33 -- have its big moment in the spotlight.

    And what a ring! The large, octagonal-cut diamond is set on what appears to be a platinum band. The unusual cut sets it apart from other engagement rings we've seen on Hollywood stars.

    Bledel, who had meticulously manicured digits for her ring's big debut, posed with her hand on her hip, giving photographers the perfect shot.

    The actress met Kartheiser on the set of "Mad Men" last year during her guest-starring role as his character Pete Campbell's neighbor -- and mistress -- Beth Dawes. The couple made their red carpet debut in October and announced their engagement in March.

    As far as wedding planning goes, Bledel has said it will be a joint production.

    "We're doing it together," she told Us Weekly, though admitted, "We haven't started yet though."

    She'll have plenty of time for that. For now, she can just enjoy her new bling.

  • Kristen Stewart Channels ‘Rebel Without a Cause’

    KristenStewart

    Kristen Stewart has embraced the Hollywood norm of wearing high-end fashion on the red carpet, but she's still a rebel at heart.

    The "Twilight" star showed off her tomboy side on Wednesday when she wore a plain white T-shirt, rolled-up jeans, and her beloved Chuck Taylors as she took out the trash at her home in the hipster Los Feliz neighborhood of L.A. Although it almost certainly was due to her nasty smoking habit and unintentional, Stewart, with a cigarette tucked between her lips, channeled James Dean in the iconic movie "Rebel Without a Cause."

    The 23-year-old's next projects are dramedy "The Big Shoe" with Elizabeth Banks and the sequel to the big-budget fantasy "Snow White and the Huntsman." However, Robert Pattinson's best girl will not be appearing in the movie "Focus."

    On Wednesday, Variety reported that Stewart has dropped out of the rom-com about an inexperienced female con artist and a more seasoned male con artist, which is written and directed by the team behind "Crazy, Stupid, Love." Stewart had planned to star alongside 40-year-old Ben Affleck, but he dropped out of the film due to scheduling conflicts. Though rumor has it that she thought Will Smith, 44, who's now in final talks to star in the project, was too much older to play her leading man. (However, E! News claims that Stewart "dropped out of the project months ago.")

    Interestingly, New York Magazine's Vulture blog analyzed some of the big films from 10 of Hollywood's male, middle-age A-listers, such as Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, Denzel Washington, and Tom Cruise, and confirmed what audiences have always known to be true -- as leading men age, their love interests do not.

    Just to be clear: Even the younger Affleck was finishing high school when Stewart was born!
