It was a union of one-named divas as Cher and Fergie joined forces on the red carpet at the 2010 Glamour Magazine Women of the Year Gala at Carnegie Hall in New York City today (November 8).

Celebrating women from the fields of entertainment, business, sports, fashion and politics, Glamour’s Women of the Year advisory board is made up of past honorees ranging from Jennifer Lopez to Nora Ephron to Katie Couric.

This year’s nominees included Julia Roberts, Donatella Versace, Queen Rania of Jordan and, of course, Cher and Fergie!

The special event also included a special performance by Grammy-nominated singer Janelle MonaƩ.

This year’s award ceremony marked the twentieth anniversary of Glamour’s Women of the Year, so the event also staged as a special tribute to 20 young women who are already changing the world.

Posted in Helena Bonham Carter, Hilary Swank, Natalie Portman, Nicole Kidman on November 2, 2010 by fadedblog

Trade publication The Hollywood Reporter is getting a makeover with a new glossy format and weekly distribution.

The first issue in the new publication features a roundtable discussion with award-nominated actors of all ages.

Amy Adams, Nicole Kidman, Hilary Swank, Natalie Portman, Helena Bonham Carter and Annette Bening all grace the cover, and an hour-long discussion about what it’s like to be a lady in the biz.

A few highlights:

On How some roles change their perspective
Natalie: “Oh definitely. I definitely see skinny people as sad now. It’s so sad to be skinny. (Laughs)”
Annette: “I didn’t think you were going to say that. (Laughs)”
Natalie: “I used to be like, ‘Oh, wow, I want to look like a model too,’ and now I’m like, ‘They’re sad.'”

On losing roles
Hilary: “There was a script I fell in love with back in August that was sent to me…I went in and I didn’t get it.”
Annette: “Who did?”
Hilary: “Do you really want to know?”
Annette: “Amy, you got it, didn’t you?”
Hilary (to Amy): “Did you read it? Did you like it?”
Amy: “I’m not getting into this!” (Thunderous laughter)
Hilary: “Amy got the role! Amy will be playing the role that I wanted!” (Laughs)
Amy: “Let me just say, I’m not doing it. We don’t normally talk about this!”

Helena on working with Tim Burton
Helena: “It’s very different. I did do a film with him before I slept with him, and it’s very different. We went through a really bad time on Sweeney Todd. … I didn’t get one compliment (from Burton). He really had this whole thing, like he didn’t want to seem as if he was favouring me. So he’d go in the opposite direction. And Tim and Johnny (Depp), they have their lovely relationship, you know, they get on so well. So that was a difficult one. … I really didn’t think he’d ever want to work with me again. On Alice (in Wonderland), I said there were going to be rules. … I listed the Ten Commandments of how to work together.”

Posted in Hilary Swank, Juliette Lewis, Minnie Driver on October 6, 2010 by fadedblog

Joined by her co-stars Juliette Lewis and Minnie Driver, Oscar winner Hilary Swank attended the LA premiere of her new flick Conviction at AMPAS Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills on Tuesday (October 5).

Each standing out in their carefully selected outfits, the trio of big screen beauties happily posed together on the red carpet.

While 40-year-old Minnie kept it classic in an outfit made of sheer black material, wrapped around a cream dress, 37-year-old Juliette and 36-year-old Hilary injected a splash of colour in their respective pink and turquoise designs.

Directed by Tony Goldwyn, Conviction is based on the true story of Betty Anne Water, as played by Hilary – an unemployed single mother who spends a decade earning a law degree so she can represent her brother (Sam Rockwell) in court after he’s wrongly convicted with murder.

The film received it’s world premiere last month at the Toronto Film Festival ahead of last night’s star-studded Beverly Hills premiere.

Conviction will be limitedly released in theatres on October 15.
