“FAR FROM HEAVEN” DIRECTOR TODD HAYNES MAY HAVE DONE IT AGAIN!

137344PCN_Carol30cut

Three of our favorite people created a movie together that they showed in Cannes to considerable fanfare and a standing ovation. Can’t WAIT to see it! The guy in the middle is Todd Haynes, the incredible director responsible for one of our all-time favorite movies, Far From Heaven. Heaven starred Julianne Moore and Dennis Haysbert and took place in Connecticut in the 1950’s. It was gorgeously photographed and incredibly sensitive. Haynes is masterful at creating a midcentury vibe. His latest is called “Carol” and it concerns an aspiring young woman who works as a department store clerk, and falls in love with an older married woman. It takes place in the 50’s in New York City. Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) plays the young clerk and Kate Blanchett plays the older woman. Kate’s dress at the premier is a knockout, by the way.

JONAH HILL USES HIS BEST ASSET IN MIAMI

137399PCN_JonahH08cut

It’s tough to be in Miami – the land of beautiful bodies- when you’re not in the best of shape. Jonah Hill is filming “Arms and the Dudes” there with Miles Teller and he’s packed on more than a few pounds lately. But he still manages to flirt. Jonah showed up in the hotel pool in a black t-shirt and turned on the charm for two bikini girls. They found his jokes hilarious and couldn’t stop laughing. (A sense of humor is always appealing.) It’s a good beginning.

US MAGAZINE IS WRONG: IGGY AZALEA DID NOT HAVE HER NOSE MADE LARGER!

137366PCN_Billboardcut

Have you ever heard of a celebrity having plastic surgery to make their nose BIGGER? Us magazine made that crazy claim about Iggy Azalea after The Billboard Awards. Iggy showed up for her performance with Britney Spears looking different and actually much prettier. Us magazine took one look and claimed she had her nose “augmented” along with a chin implant. Actually if you compare photos, her nose looks straighter and a bit SMALLER, and her chin area looks slimmer. She might also have had her upper lip lifted slightly when the nose was done. Maybe the reporters at Us don’t know what the word “augmented” means. Iggy does admit to having breast augmentation recently. Click HERE – what’s YOUR opinion?

ANGELINA JOLIE JOINED THE SOCCER MOM CLUB

Angelina Jolie heads to her kid's soccer game.

Angelina Jolie can be described in many delightful ways, but we never thought of her as a soccer mom. But she is. Angie joined the ranks of celebrity moms Gwen Stefani and Heidi Klum and spent Saturday afternoon cheering on her soccer playing kids at a Los Feliz park like an ordinary person.

SHOW US YOUR STRETCH MARKS, HARVEY LEVIN!

tmz-news-1

We usually love TMZ, but no way can we avoid taking them to task for a truly revolting and sexist “gossip” story they concocted. It’s called Guess The Celebrity Stretch Marks.” Close-ups of various women’s thighs, butts, and other body parts are provided for readers’ amusement. Talk about haters. Harvey, does someone over there HATE women? Of course, TMZ has never insulted MALE celebrities with “Guess the Celebrity Love Handles.” This photo set-up is not news – at best, it’s just downright cruel and mean spirited – at worst it’s clearly misogynistic. And it’s not okay.

137233PCN_Emma01cut

Emma Stone almost ALWAYS gets it right. She wore this adorable Mad Men inspired cocktail dress to the Cannes screening of her latest Woody Allen movie Irrational Man. She plays a grad student who becomes involved with her philosophy professor played by Joaquin Phoenix. Now THAT’S an acting challenge.

BB KING: THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES

We didn’t realize how lucky we were growing up in Chicago because BB King was a frequent performer in Old Town. In our late teens, armed with fake IDs, our boyfriends would take us downtown to witness The Blues and sip forbidden drinks like Singapore Slings. At the time we didn’t realize how important BB King would become – we just loved the music. Now he’s gone, but far from forgotten. Above is a video of BB and Bobby Blue Bland on Soul Train in 1975. Check out those lapels.

DAVID SCHWIMMER IS THE ORIGINAL KARDASHIAN

137156PCN_AmCrime01(1)cut

David Schwimmer is bringing Robert Kardashian back to life for the TV series American Crime Story. With Cuba Gooding Jr as the egotistical OJ Simpson, and Selma Blair as Kris Jenner, it will be hard to resist watching this. That grey streak in his hair is perfection.

WE’D RATHER NOT SEE STEVEN TYLER IN A COWBOY HAT

AG070815_01(1tylercut)

He doesn’t LOOK like he’s “gone country” but Aerosmith rocker Steven Tyler recorded his latest single, “Love is Your Name,” in Nashville, and it definitely SOUNDS like country. He’s also signed to the same Dot label as Tim McGraw. But that doesn’t change the fact that he’s going on tour with Aerosmith this summer. Tyler introduced his new song on the season finale of American Idol. Two careers are better than one. And we like his outfit.

IT’S NOT COMPLICATED – “THE INTERN” LOOKS LIKE A SURE THING

Now HERE’S a movie we can sink our teeth into! “The Intern” with Robert DeNiro and Anne Hathaway reminds us a tiny bit of “The Devil Wears Prada” and we can’t wait to visit that world again! Deniro plays a 70ish widower who is hired by Anne Hathaway’s online fashion site in their Senior Intern Program. Anne plays the CEO he reports to. It looks to be an amusing culture clash – brilliant writer/director Nancy Meyers rarely disappoints. Meyers’ last movie was “It’s Complicated” with Meryl Streep.
