Posted in Halle Berry, Magazines on August 12, 2010 by fadedblog

It’s been a while since we last heard from Halle Berry.

But now the Oscar-winning actress is back now, doing her thing on the cover of Vogue‘s September issue.

After giving birth to baby Nahla, her daughter with boyfriend Gabriel Aubry, in March 2008, and then splitting up with Gabriel earlier this year, 44-year-old Halle is ready to open up.

“We were meant to bring this amazing little person into the world,” she says of former flame Aubry. “And I think that’s why we came together. And because of that, we are going to be together forever, all three of us.”

But, Halle also says, “It’s just that you realize you are not meant to go the distance with everybody.”

She adds: “I’m not done with love, but I refuse to settle. I am a hopeless romantic. And I won’t stop till I get it right.”

On screen, Julianna Margulies plays a betrayed wife on CBS’s hit drama The Good Wife.

In real life, the 44-year-old actress offers her thoughts on cheating in the September issue of Redbook.

“I think that when you have gotten things out of your system, you are less tempted by distraction,” she says. “My only temptations now are chocolate and martinis. I think the hardest thing about cheating would not be the physical act; it would be the trust you break. If you decide to take that person back, you have to make a deal to trust again.”

On the time when she felt like a great wife (she married Keith Lieberthal in 2007 and their son Kieran was born in 2008): “There was one perfect day recently when I got up at 5:30 with the baby, went to work at 6:30 for 12 hours, grocery shopped, cooked dinner, and then later, my husband and I made love. We both looked at each other that night and said, “This day will never happen again!”


Posted in Larry King, Magazines on August 10, 2010 by fadedblog

As he wraps up his long-running talk show, Larry King, who bought his first pair of suspenders in 1988 and now owns about 250 pairs, gives his views on fashion to Harper’s Bazaar.

Here’s an excerpt:

What are your favorite looks on a woman?
Larry: “I like skirts at the knee or a little above. I’m not into low-cut stuff. I like shoes. My wife, Shawn, is tall, but I like heels; I’m not one for flats. I like the total look, a lady who says, ‘I want you, but I’m not making it obvious.'”

What about Shawn’s style?
Larry: “I like the colors she wears. Also, she’s 5 feet 11 and a half, so everyone notices when she walks in a room.”

Who’s the most stylish person you’ve ever interviewed?
Larry: “In her day, Jane Fonda. Angie Dickinson. That era may be gone now. But the classic example of bringing yesterday to today is Cameron Diaz. She has movie-star looks with a modern approach.”

We all like Cameron.
Larry: “I saw A-Rod yesterday. He really likes her too.”


Posted in Jennifer Aniston, Magazines on August 4, 2010 by fadedblog

Check out Jennifer Aniston as we’ve never seen her — imitating Barbra Streisand.

The 41-year-old actress, who stars in the new comedy The Switch, pays homage to the legendary Streisand in the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar, on newsstands August 17.

On being a funny girl: “People laugh at me. Sometimes I know why, and sometimes I don’t. But I can pretty much find humor in anything. That is a necessary part of life. I don’t want to say laughter is healing, because it sounds corny, but it’s a release.”

On being in the spotlight: “[Barbra and I] are people who have been put in the spotlight, for better or for worse, and you just keep riding, and you keep overcoming.”

On looking up to Streisand: “Barbra inspires me because there isn’t anything she hasn’t done that she wanted to do, especially as a female in the time when her generation was prime. She’s a true renaisĀ­sance woman. … I had a long conversation with Barbra about directing because I directed a short a couple years ago, and if I don’t do it again soon, I’m going to burst out of my skin. And we also love interior design.”


Posted in Magazines, Michelle Obama on August 4, 2010 by fadedblog

Michelle Obama tells the upcoming issue of Ladies’ Home Journal that she’s working hard to get vegetables on kids’ plates, including those of her own daughters.

“My mom swears I am much more strict than she was,” says the First Lady. “Yeah, she tends to spoil the girls a little bit more. But she believes in not sending mixed messages. That’s something families have to think about: making sure both parents are on the same page. If one adult is putting vegetables on the plate and the other’s saying, ‘you don’t have to eat them’ — it’s difficult.”

As for her own diet? Mrs. O says she turns to the occasional cleanse: “Recently, I was on a sort of cleanse and I was just eating vegetables. Cleanses are good for a short period of time. I can’t live my life on a cleanse. But they help me clean out my palate. Because when you start adding things like sugars into your diet, you start craving them. And the more you eat, the more you crave. So, maybe I’ll do a cleanse for two days. It isn’t a way of life, because I like food too much.”

A few more highlights from the interview:

Michelle on beets: “I am a believer there is a beet gene. Peope who love beets love them and people who hate beets can’t stand them. Neither the President nor I have the beet gene. And there are a lot of healthy things my kids don’t like. But our rule is, ‘you’ve got to finish your vegetables.’ And if somebody says, ‘I’m full,’ then it’s like, ‘Okay, you’re full when you’re done. But you have to finish your vegetables, and don’t ask for dessert.”

Michelle on just how strict is strict: “My girls can’t watch TV during the school week. And generally they have limited time over the weekend. During the school week they can only use the computer if it’s for school work.”


Posted in Jennifer Hudson, Magazines on August 3, 2010 by fadedblog

Jennifer Hudson graces the upcoming issue of InStyle Makeover issue, out Friday.

And while the Oscar-winning actress has gone from a size 16 to a size 6, that’s not the only radical transformation on her mind.

“I’m actually thinking about shaving my head. I am! Because I feel I’ve got a good structure now,” she says, referring to her cheekbones. “My cousin’s a beautician, and she always tells me, ‘You could wear any hairdo.’ So I’m thinking, What if I shave my hair? Not completely off, but low. I think that would be so hot.”

And while the hair may go, don’t expect J.Hud to shed any more pounds. “I don’t want to lose any more weight, and you’re never going to see me skinny. I think this is a good, natural size for me.”

After all, she says her fiance David Otunga, “doesn’t like change. He tells me I have no breasts anymore. He tries to feed me.”
