The internet exploded when Julia Roberts was revealed to be People Magazine’s choice for WORLD’S MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN 2017. Not a lot of people said bad things about Julia, but many questioned the choice of a 49 year old five time winner – they wanted a new face. The REAL question is, of course, why is People magazine living in the last century with this archaic sort of “contest!” BEAUTY CONTESTS are WAY past their date of expiration. Even People’s male version is called “Sexiest Man Alive” which implies more than just superficial looks. We’re betting People’s editor is just another oblivious MAN… who thinks he’s doing females a favor by selecting a mature woman. Here’s hoping this is the last year they repeat this nonsense.
People magazine got it right this time. Chris Hemsworth has been ordained Sexiest Man Alive this year and we can’t think of a better choice. The 6’3” Australian was amazing in Rush – and if you haven’t seen that movie, add it to your bucket list.
It’s not the least bit surprising to hear that Katie Holmes refused to talk about her ex-husband Tom Cruise for this week’s cover interview in People magazine. The Daily News reported that before Katie did the interview she laid out lots of ground rules. Among them: She didn’t want the interview to be based on her marriage to Tom, she didn’t want Tom’s name on the cover, and she wanted the interview to be positive. Katie wasn’t being difficult. Fact is, like Tom’s ex Nicole Kidman, Katie doesn’t want to inadvertently say ANYTHING the least bit offensive about Tom. Both ex-wives are scared and don’t want Scientologists getting riled up. And chances are, they signed confidentiality agreements when they were divorced.
Holy cow! It looks like somebody hijacked the People.com website and posted a truly revolting, obscenity laden story! There has been a lot of speculation that this piece of news did not originate from People – but how was it posted online there? Readers have already started commenting, and most are appalled at People’s apparent lapse in taste! Click HERE to see the video, before it disappears!
People magazine’s choice of Adam Levine as “Sexiest Man Alive” has caused another uproar with fans loudly denouncing their selection. Back in 2011, Ryan Gosling fans raised a stink when Bradley Cooper won the title and they demonstrated outside People offices. In 2012, Channing Tatum filled the bill nicely, with no complaints. This year Adam Levine brought the protesters back and they were highly critical. (That cover photo did him no favors.) We have to agree, Adam is cool but not quite up to the title. Our choice would be voluptuous Rush star Chris Hemsworth. If more People voters had seen that movie, he’d have easily landed the title.
Here’s a front page that brings back memories! Twenty years ago Julia Roberts,25, was more fickle than Taylor Swift. She cancelled her wedding to Kiefer Sutherland a few days before the ceremony and ran off with Jason Patric. Later Julia shocked the world again by impulsively marrying country singer Lyle Lovett,35, whom she met while filming a cameo in The Player! They planned the wedding for two days and were married in a Lutheran church in Indiana. Thirteen months later the marriage was over. She’s calmed down a lot since then.
Gwyneth Paltrow’s head must be spinning. She’s been enduring online insults for months now – most of them describing her as the most condescending celebrity, who considers herself and expert on many subjects. She’s called pretentious and out of touch with the real world because she leads such an artificial life and doesn’t seem to realize it. Not only that but she’s been called the Most Hated actress in Hollywood! All this was closely followed by People magazine declaring her “The World’s Most Beautiful Woman!” Gwyneth must be very confused…
People Magazine finally got it right. “Magic Mike” star Channing Tatum is the perfect choice for “Sexiest Man Alive” and NOT just because of his abs. Alabama born Tatum, 32, also happens to be one of the truly nice guys in Hollywood. The fact that he seems oblivious to his own good looks only makes him more appealing. Besides being an amazing dancer, he has a reputation for being down to earth and earnest – a pleasure to work with. He openly adores his wife Jenna and they are considered to be one of the most genuine and likeable couples in Hollywood.
When Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively secretly married in South Carolina a few weeks ago we were very impressed that they pulled off the event without alerting press or press or photographers. It appeared that they actually planned and PAID FOR their own private wedding instead of selling out to a magazine. Truly romantic. That same week, we were disillusioned to see People magazine’s wedding cover bellow ”People Was There!” implying THEY were invited. It turns out they WEREN’T. People exaggerated the way “Life & Style” or “In Touch” usually does. According to Page Six, Blake’s reps said there was a sneaky photographer on a boat snapping pics, but the couple never sold their pictures to any weekly and certainly didn’t invite anyone from People to the wedding.
We are just DYING to know who released this fake People magazine cover yesterday with Taylor Lautner coming out as gay on the cover. The “leaked” cover was dated January 7, 2012, and many people fell for it. In fact, if Taylor is straight (and we think he is) he will be denying this for years to come. The public will remember the fake cover and forget the denial. WHO would go to this much trouble to get Taylor’s goat? We figure it’s a gay person who assumes Taylor is gay also and resents his “pretending” to be straight successfully and having loads of fans. If Taylor DID come out as gay, he certainly wouldn’t have as many leading man opportunities, so it ain’t gonna happen.
