Kate Winslet says no plastic surgery; Rachel Weisz, Emma Thompson echo sentiments

  • Pop2it
Three Hollywood actresses have stated they are not down with plastic surgery - Kate Winslet, Rachel Weisz and Emma Thompson. Good for them, we say!

Kate, a six-time Oscar nominee and one-time winner, tells U.K. newspaper The Guardian, "It goes against my morals, the way that my parents brought me up and what I consider to be natural beauty. I will never give in. I am an actress, I don't want to freeze the expression of my face." Winslet is a

Winslet's "Sense and Sensibility" co-star and Oscar winner Emma Thompson echoes her sentiments. "We're in this awful youth-driven thing now where everybody needs to look 30 at 60."

"People who look too perfect don't look sexy or particularly beautiful," says Rachel Weisz, an Oscar winner for the 2005 film "The Constant Gardener."

We strongly support you, ladies! You are so beautiful just as you are.

The Academy's Production Design Database

Did any of you catch that AMPAS has opened up a Production Design Database? It's just got two sample searches right now "Science Fiction" and "Wedding Clothes" and many of the items you still have to make appointments to actually see but what they do have up gives you a taste of their rich history. (It's better to search more generally -- like say by picking a year -- than to search for a specific film). Since I didn't do as much as I intended for the June Wedding theme here at the blog, I thought I'd share a couple of their illustrations for one last walk down an aisle (and to give you a taste of the type of stuff they have.)

The wedding search is more Costume Design than Production Design but those two departments are usually tight. In the picture above you see illustrations of stars Elizabeth Taylor

Exclusive Q&A: Mélanie Laurent Has More Than 'Beginners' Luck

  • NextMovie
 

American audiences first met gorgeous French actress Mélanie Laurent when she burned down the house as Shoshanna in Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds."

She now co-stars in Mike Mills' haunting new movie "Beginners." Oliver (Ewan McGregor) is struggling with the loss of his father, Hal (Christopher Plummer), who died from cancer just five years after coming out of the closet. Then Oliver meets Anna (Laurent) at a Halloween party and falls in love with the funny, complicated, insightful woman who moves from hotel room to hotel room. The film is based loosely on Mills' relationship with his own father.

Laurent is also a jazz singer and director; her full-length directorial debut will come out this November in France. Blunt and beautiful, Laurent is just the woman Hollywood needs right now, and she wasn't shy about telling us why she auditioned with a fake dog, or exactly what she thinks of director Lars von Trier.

Revisit the Past with Jim Bianco

Revisit the Past with Jim Bianco
The modern day Joe Cocker has just arrived into the music scene. We still think that Cocker’s famed tunes, such as “You Are So Beautiful” and “With A Little Help From My Friends,” could be released nowadays and reclaim their #1 positions on the charts. What we mean by modern day is that this artist brings back Cocker’s rugged vocals into a world where repetitive and beat heavy tracks dominate the radio waves. Although his tunes might not have these contemporary elements, we still imagine the tracks of the up and coming artist, Jim Bianco, passing alongside these wavelengths. Bianco’s ability to control his raspy sound unearths a bunch of [...]

The X Factor live blog - rock week

This week the remaining X Factor contestants will each sing twice - which frankly sounds more like a threat than a treat. Join me live from 7.45pm

Stuart Heritage's results show liveblog

Welcome to X Factor's Rock Night, where I've been reliably informed that each of the contestants will sing a song about their favourite type of rock. For example, Mary is fond of Foidolite's unusually high feldspathoid content so she's singing a song about that, while Rebecca Ferguson is doing a number called I Love Trondhjemite. Wagner got confused and decided to do a song about his favourite type of Rick - it's Rick Edwards from T4, by the way - but let's brush past that.

Excitingly, the contestants are all going to perform two songs each tonight - 14 songs in total. It'll be just like the early days of X Factor, except better because Storm Lee

Lady Gaga makes a fan’s dream come true at recent concert

HollywoodNews.com: Lady Gaga has always been one to stand behind her “little monsters” and motivate them and this story is no exception. She recently paired up with the Dream Foundation and met with a fan named Noelle who has leukemia after her show.

Thomas W. Rollerson of the Dream Foundation wrote, “Noelle’s eyes widened with excitement as Lady Gaga herself entered private waiting room to visit her. She had just danced and sang her booty off for two hours and now she was giving her time to Noelle. And time she gave. Having witnessed many meet and greets, I was thrilled that Lady Gaga shared with me the sense that there was no greater place to be than with Noelle in that moment,” reports Radar Online.

Gaga then told Noelle, “They may say you are sick, but all I feel is how alive your spirit is. Listen to

'X Factor' John Adeleye: 'I could win'
X Factor hopeful John Adeleye believes that he has what it takes to win the series. The 29-year-old care worker, who performed 'You Are So Beautiful' at his first audition, claimed that he has the right combination of style and voice to triumph on the reality show. Speaking to the programme's official site, he said: "I've got a lot to offer and that's the way I see it right now. I've seen previous shows and thought, 'I (more)

True Blood Review: "Beautifully Broken"

  • TVfanatic
All Hell will eventually break loose on True Blood this season, as creator Alan Ball promised a convergence of events and a compelling finale.

I have no doubt that will be true, and I was extremely entertained by "Beautifully Broken," but the episode did feel a bit disconnected.

As anyone familiar with the books (or with the weeks' worth of casting updates on TV Fanatic) knows, season three introduces a slew of new characters to the series. Almost all of them showed up last night, making it a bit difficult to get caught up in the suspense of the storylines when we're challenged to simply keep track of who's who.

At least the characters are promising, though. There's Jesus, who gives Mrs. Reynolds a chance to be hilariously racist and Lafayette a chance to find love. Anything that places this hookah in the spotlight in fine by me, especially if

Rachel: 'Simon right to go to deadlock'

Rachel: 'Simon right to go to deadlock'
Rachel Adedeji has defended Simon Cowell's decision to send her home on last weekend's X Factor. Cowell opted to let the previous public vote decide Adedeji's fate, despite admitting that her sing-off performance of 'Stop Crying Your Heart Out' was better than Lloyd Daniels's sore throat-marred take on 'You Are So Beautiful'. She told Digital Spy: "I think he was right to go to deadlock, because he could have just said me, but then we still wouldn't know why the public aren't really getting me. "I (more)

Cowell 'tried to stop Lloyd in sing-off'
X Factor judge Simon Cowell tried to cut short Lloyd Daniels's sing-off performance last night, a report has claimed. Viewers saw 16-year-old Daniels struggling through a rendition of 'You Are So Beautiful' after he joined Rachel Adedeji in the bottom two yesterday. His mentor Cheryl Cole had explained that he was suffering from a sore throat. According to London Lite, Cowell made a "throat-cutting" gesture to a producer during the performance, indicating (more)

Rachel Adedeji voted off 'The X Factor'

Rachel Adedeji voted off 'The X Factor'
Rachel Adedeji has become the fourth act to be voted off The X Factor. Adedeji found herself in the bottom two for the third time after the public vote. She was joined by Lloyd Daniels, and both acts had to perform a song of their choice to win the judges' votes. Adedeji was first to perform, and chose to sing the Oasis track 'Stop Crying Your Heart Out'. Daniels, who was suffering with a sore throat, followed with a rendition of 'You Are So Beautiful'. During his performance his voice cracked, causing him to shake his head and say "Sorry". The judges then had to decide who to save. Dannii Minogue was first to vote, and decided to save her own act, Adedeji, as did Louis Walsh. Cheryl Cole saved her own act, Daniels, leaving Simon Cowell with the final vote. "Undoubtedly, Rachel you sang better than Lloyd,

We’re Live-Blogging The ‘American Idol’ Finale!

It’s here! It only took us 38 episodes, 17 weeks and one Tatiana del Toro, but the “American Idol” finale is just moments away!

Tonight I’m live-blogging from the actual honest-to-Gokey “American Idol” finale - but don’t get too excited. I’m not in the auditorium with the judges and the random celebrity guests and the Seacrest. I’m in a “press viewing party” in the basement of the Nokia Theatre, squeezed in between other (sweaty) media outlets and watching the show on a monitor. This is the glamorous underbelly of showbiz, folks, and taking a look around the room, I’d say put the emphasis on belly.

For those of you who need to get caught up to speed on tonight’s proceedings, it’s Battle Royale between Adam Lambert, a theatrical screaming banshee who revitalized the aging competition with a unique style and a coy/savvy depiction of his sexuality,

Danny Gokey Gets the Brush on American Idol, Path Cleared for Adam-Kris Finale

Adam Lambert had his usual triumphant showing on American Idol last night, while Danny Gokey and Kris Allen split their decisions, underwhelming with their first songs and redeeming themselves with their second. Danny's "You Are So Beautiful" was nice, but it didn't prove he's capable of any more than what we saw from him on day one. Kris' reworking of Kanye West's "Heartless" may have been a game-changer, however, being good enough to theoretically propel him past Danny (who's never been in the bottom two or three) and into the final. Tonight, Jordin Sparks and Katy Perry sang. Alicia Keys asked for money (a great cause, but more on that later). Ryan Seacrest walked the Top...

'American Idol' Result Show Reveals Final 2

"American Idol" Result Show sent Danny Gokey home, making Kris Allen and Adam Lambert as the Final 2. Gokey's fan support apparently was not enough to take him to be the Idol top 2, which does not cope with judge Paula Abdul's prediction of Gokey and Lambert to perform in this season American Idol final.

Gokey with Terence Trent D'arby's "Dance Little Sister" - chosen for him by judge Paula Abdul - and his own choice, "You Are So Beautiful," popularized by Joe Cocker, failed to impress public on Tuesday night show. Meanwhile, Lambert, the Los Angeles musical-theater veteran got almost all thumbs up for both his sensuous take on U2's "One," and a cat-scratch run through Aerosmith's "Cryin'", adding another record of great performance on his nearly flawless path through the final.

As opposite to Gokey who was never put in the bottom 3 through the season, Allen's

American Idol: The Final Three

  • TVStar
We are only mere hours away from the results show for American Idol and the anticipation is at an all time high. Last night, the final three took the stage and each performed two songs; one was a personal pick while the others were handpicked by the judges. They are did an incredible job, but unfortunately someone will be voted off tonight. The question is, who will it be? Paula Abdul picked Terence Trent D'Arby's "Dance Little Sister" for Danny Gokey and the judges were unimpressed with his somewhat screamy performance. However, when he took the stage to sing his personal song which was Joe Cocker's "You Are So Beautiful" they all poured him with rave reviews. Randy Jackson and Kara DioGuardi picked One Republic's "Apologize" for Kris Allen and criticized him for being too safe and unoriginal. When Kris Allen picked his own song, he shocked judges,

Kris Takes on "Heartless" in Exciting Idol Final Three Night

  • Popsugar
All bets are off after the final three performed on last night's American Idol. After being written off, Kris Allen's performances should make tonight's elimination pretty interesting, though let's start with Danny Gokey. Paula was in charge of Danny's judges' choice song, and she went with "Dance Little Sister," which was fine - his voice sounded good but the performance was nothing special. Simon praised his vocals but was already under attack from the female judges, which escalated into sparring with Kara all night long. Danny redeemed himself when he choose "You Are So Beautiful" for his second song. He sounded great, which all the judges agreed on, and Simon even commended him for being in a "vocal master class." Randy and Kara were in charge of choosing Kris Allen's first song, and they went with "Apologize" by One Republic. As a fan of the song, I thoroughly enjoyed the performance,

'American Idol''s Top Three Sing Judges' Choice

  • The Insider
"American Idol"'s final three -- Adam Lambert, Kris Allen and Danny Gokey -- each performed two songs: one selected by the judges and one of their own choice -- but not before each of them made a hometown journey. Danny kicked off the night with his judges' pick: Terence Trent D'Arby's "Dance Little Sister," selected by Paula Abdul. Randy Jackson gave him a thumbs up, saying, "Lots of energy. Performing like crazy. Dude, that was dope for me." Kara liked the vocals, but not Danny's moves. She said, "I like that Paula picked that song, but the dancing was a little too gyrating for me. You are a great singer, but am I going to remember that performance?" Paula disagreed, pointing out, "I am a choreographer, and I think you did really good. And what is great, you let the magic part of your voice carry out throughout the song.

Can Kris Allen Make It To The ‘American Idol’ Finale?

It’s a tight race to the “American Idol” finale finish line. There’s no Syesha Mercado easy target here in season eight’s top three. Nope, all three contestants have viable fanbases and oodles of talent. And after watching the top three perform judges’ choice/ contestants’ choice numbers, it’s even harder to predict.

My terrible batting average hasn’t stopped me from predicting in the past (I’m 0-3 right now, aren’t I?), so let’s break down the performance show and predict whose “Idol” journey will end tomorrow night.

Going Home: Kris Allen

Kris delivered my favorite performance of the show. His acoustic take on Kanye West’s “Heartless” is exactly the kind of memorable, buzzworthy showstopper that has America reaching for its collective TiVo remote. However, his first

We’re Live-Blogging The Top Three ‘American Idol’ Performances!

Tonight’s “American Idol” live-blog is dedicated to Allison Iraheta, my personal Idol. In honor of the recent oustee, I expect all of you to refuse to give me any credit I might deserve in this live-blog. Your comments should be comprised of backhanded compliments, faint praise and “that ones” while you over-praise other bloggers who are lazy and aren’t deserving of their unstoppable success. Deal?

Check out Jim Cantiello’s video recap of the show below!

We now resume with our regularly scheduled live-blog.

And then there were two…with a third wheel.

Yes, in a season that’s felt as endless as “The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons”, the finale is approaching faster than Kara can say “Here’s the thing…”

The three remaining contestants had their hometown visits last week, which I imagine was a great morale booster. Although we all know one contestant doesn’t
