Jennifer Hudson should be thanking her ‘lucky’ stars that she wasn’t asked to put on a heinous wig for this fashion spread. Remember that tragedy that was Britney Spears’ Lucky cover last month. EPIC FAIL. The Oscar-winning actress definitely dodged a bullet there. Wearing H&M, 7 For All Mankind and DKNY, Hudson beams on Lucky’s January 2013 issue snapped by photographer Ruven Afanador.
The publication couldn’t have picked a better person to kick off 2013 with than the wickedly awesome Miss Hudson. The 31-year-old has a few big projects lined up in the new year. Not only does her highly-anticipated guest starring role on Smash begin in February, but the R&B singer is dropping a new album. Reportedly, super producer Redone is working heavily with Hudson for her third studio effort. If that wasn’t enough to keep her busy, the stylish celebrity will continue working on her recently-debuted fashion line. Check out a few quotes from her interview discussing this and much more below.
“The first time I was asked to lose weight [on American Idol], I was like, ‘What??’ Where I come from, I was never considered particularly heavy.” After a number of crash-diet attempts, Hudson found success with Weight Watchers because it wasn’t about Hollywood-style deprivation. “You have what you’re craving,” she says. “Chocolate is what I love—I have it every day.”
Without a doubt Anne Hathaway has a killer smile. With shorter cropped hair, her mouth is out of control… in a good way. The 30-year-old is absolutely rocking on the cover of Glamour magazine’s January 2013 issue which was snapped by photographer Alexei Hay. Sporting a tank, briefs and shiny stylin’ Skullcandy headphones, Hathaway glows. Must be the fact she’s in love and a recent newlywed. She wed Adam Shulman this past summer.
“It’s wonderful. I feel like I’ve found my other half, and I’m so excited about getting to love him for the rest of our lives… I would never have gotten married if it weren’t for him. You have to want to be married to someone. You have to feel that reciprocated. Marriage for marriage’s sake doesn’t make any sense to me, and I found someone with whom I could put my money where my mouth is, I guess.” – Anne Hathaway
In addition to her marriage, The Devil Wears Prada actress talks about cutting off all her hair for her Oscar bait role in the highly-anticipated musical, Les Miserables. Anne talks about adjusting to her shorter do in the accompanying interview. Other topics discussed include her obsession with her weight and public image and also the reason why she’s wearing that One Billion Rising tank.
On February 14, she’s joining forces with the organization in inviting one billion people to walk out of their jobs, schools and homes to dance. The number represents the number of women on the planet who’ve been raped or beaten. It’s time to end violence against women and girls, and Anne hopes you join her dancing wherever you are on Valentine’s Day.
This coming January 2013 is Vanity Fair‘s first ever comedy issue and it’s guest edited by Judd Apatow. For the issue, Apatow brought together his most talented friends and idols to contribute, write, and pose for a 19-page Mark Seliger portfolio. There are three different covers to this issue, with four different comedians looking fabulously funny on each. I’ve included all three of them below and you can vote for which one you like best.
This is only the third time since Graydon Carter became the editor of the magazine 20 years ago that someone has been a guest editor. The last guest editor was Bono when he guest-edited the Africa issue in July of 2007. Before that, Tom Ford guest-edited a Hollywood Portfolio in March of 2006. With the comedy genre booming these days, Carter felt like it was the perfect time for such an issue and that Judd Apatow was the perfect choice for the job.
In the first cover shown above, Jim Carrey is dressed up as Evel Knievel, Maya Rudolph is doing an ancient Egyptian like Steve Martin in his King Tut days, Will Ferrell is done up like a corny cowboy, and Amy Poehler as a 60s go-go girl. Check out the other two covers below, featuring comedians like Kristin Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, and more.
Isn’t Noah Mills absolute perfection? I can’t pick out one flaw. Even his sweat seems like it would smell aromatic. At least in my fantasies, it does ;) It’s not hard to tell I have a big hard-on for 27-year-old Canadian male supermodel. Can you blame me? He’s got a rocking body and a classically handsome face.
If you watched Sex and the City 2, you saw him plowing Samantha (Kim Cattrall) to orgasmic heights. Most recently, Noah appeared as Taylor Swift’s love interest in the music video for “We’re Never Ever Getting Back Together“. He probably was cast for having a Jake Gyllenhaal-vibe whom is speculated as the inspiration for the track.
Mills’ latest gig has him showing off that aforementioned toned body for the Spanish edition of Men’s Health. Photographed by Edu Garcia, Noah models gym collection inside a locker room. Fittingly enough, his threads are from Dolce & Gabbana’s fall/winter 2012 collection, since he’s a favorite of the Italian brand. Too bad, D&G didn’t have a line of soap, shampoo and towels to pimp out. Can’t you just picture him soaping up in the shower ;) Check out his editorial in the Spanish fitness magazine below.
I love me some Garrett Hedlund. There’s just something about his unkempt look and deep voice that just does it for me. How much exactly do I love thee? Well, I enjoyed watching Country Strong co-starring Gwyneth Paltrow and it wasn’t because of Leighton Meester or Paltrow’s singing. Does that answer that question? I’m even willing to sit through Kristen Stewart having a threesome in On The Road just to see Hedlund’s bare booty. The punishment I’ll put myself through sometimes ;)
The 28-year-old actor discusses the Jack Kerouac movie adaptation in the January 2013 issue of Interview magazine, along with his music career. Hedlund’s cover and inside photo spread were snapped by prolific photographer Robbie Fimmano. Check out Garrett looking all scruffy and hot below. He kinda resembles a young Jeremy Sisto (Suburgatory, Clueless).
As you can see, Perry looks stunning as she graces the cover of the December issue of Billboard. In an interview with the magazine, Perry explains how she was totally caught off guard by this and how grateful she is. “I’d thought my year was over, that it was time to pass the baton. But I guess I get to hold onto it until the end of the year. It’s truly a lovely compliment.” I think she was a great choice for this honor, considering her record-breaking success coupled with her ability to inspire and remain so down to earth.
At last night’s event, she explained, “I am not a feminist, but I do believe in the strength of women.” She added, “I don’t really like to call myself a role model for my fans. I hope that I am an inspiration for them, especially young women. My mantra, especially for the ['Part Of Me'] film, was: If you believe in yourself, you can be anything.”
I have to say I was a little surprised with Entertainment Weekly’s choice of Entertainer of the Year. There’s no denying Ben Affleck’s political thriller Argo is fantastic, but to earn the EW’s top spot… I’m not so sure. Helping his cause somewhat is probably his rise after making a series of flops including Gigli and Jersey Girl. Holllywood loves a comeback. His directing effort will undoubtedly bring him back to the Academy Awards- 15 years after a fresh-faced Affleck won for Good Will Hunting.
In the issue, Affleck is given praise by Argo producer George Clooney. The silver fox isn’t the only one giving an All-Star Tribute. Jamie Foxx showers Kerry Washington with love, while Jimmy Fallon talks up the awesomeness that is Anne Hathaway. Here are a few other tributes:
“How is it that she can just stand there, not saying a word, and make us feel so much? Her talent is undeniable, and she is a force to be reckoned with.”
“The turns are unexpectedly sharp, and the season’s plot has been aggressively paced in the best way. To put it bluntly, crazy s— just keeps happening.”
“He does what he does for the right reasons: this guy loves telling stories…. There are millions of people who’ve known of his talent for years, thanks to Buffy, Angel, and Firefly. Now it seems like everybody knows.”
What is a Hollywood Maverick in the eyes of Details magazine? They are innovators, risk-takers and big thinkers changing the face of entertainment. “Writers are becoming directors, directors are becoming moguls, actors are becoming all of the above instead of lying around praying for a spin-off.” The publication decided to honor these individuals for their December 2012 issue.
Leonardo DiCaprio received the big honor of gracing the cover, but he’s not the only one being recognized for his big ideas. Chris Colfer for his work as a writer, director and executive producer on Struck By Lightning is being hailed a Career Opportunist. His initiative for writing his next project rather than waiting on the sidelines is the reason why he’s being singled out.
Zachary Quinto is featured in the Creative Collectives category alongside his fellow Margin Call filmmakers. The New Normal’s Andrew Rannells made the Survivors list with Chris Messina for making it big after years of casting calls. Details named John Krasinski as the Idea Man, while Pitch Perfect’s Rebel Wilson is being hailed as The Next Big Thing. Check out their photos snapped by Doug Inglish below.
