Basic Instinct put her on the map, and 20+ years later her attitude toward confidence, aging gracefully, and society’s standards of beauty have kept her there.
So, how much do we love Lauren Conrad right now?
I know, I know, I never thought I’d hear myself say that either (not that I have anything against Conrad; I’ve just never had anything for her, either), but her response during a Sway in the Morning interview with former MTV VJ Sway Calloway has taken the Internet by storm — in a damn good way.
(Just so you know, the interview was from October 2012; that it’s resurfaced and gained so much attention now shows you just how awesome was her answer.)
During the interview, former Laguna Beach star Lauren Conrad pulled three questions from a hat. She answered the first two fairly quickly, but when the third piece of paper asked her the age-old “What’s your favorite position?”, the Paper Crown designer and best-selling author clearly was taken aback — for just a hot minute, before answering, “CEO.”
Ladies, Lauren Conrad has shown us whether it’s mother, wife, teacher, counselor, or CEO, your favorite position doesn’t have to be — or outright isn’t — what brings you the most joy and satisfaction in bed.
It’s what brings you the most joy and satisfaction in life.
You can see the full clip over at Us Weekly, but if you want to skip to the good stuff it starts around 6:15.
Whether you’re a fan or not, what’d you think of Conrad’s response?
Is it just me, or has America (and possibly the globe) gone wild for Jennifer Lawrence lately?
I mean, don’t get me wrong: I like her. A lot, even. She’s a great actress and seems to be a pretty down-to-earth person.
We really, really love us some Jennifer Lawrence.
(UPDATE 2/5/14: Four individuals have been arrested in relation to Hoffman’s drug overdose, according to The New York Daily News and CNN. Authorities found more than 350 bags of heroin in three different apartments. (Upon further investigation, 70 bags of heroin were found in Hoffman’s apartment. Currently, police aren’t certain whether those four individuals sold the heroin to Hoffman or if they’re part of a larger drug ring.)
(UPDATE 2/3/14: CNN reports Hoffman failed to pick up his children Sunday, as was scheduled, and law enforcement found Hoffman surrounded by eight empty bags, the type of which generally contain heroin. The bags were labeled “Ace of Spades” and “Ace of Hearts.” Both are known street names for heroin.)
Celebrity Psychings has sad news to report today: actor Philip Seymour Hoffman has died.
The 46-year-old Oscar-winning actor, famous for his roles as Truman Capote in Capote and Lester Bangs in Almost Famous, was found dead in his New York City apartment at noon (February 2, 2014).
At the time of this post, a cause of death is unknown or has not been released; however, police do suspect a drug overdose due to a needle in his arm:
The official cause of death is still unknown at this point, however, the police confirm to “The Insider With Yahoo” that he may have died of a suspected overdose, as he was found with a needle in his arm.
Hearing about Seymour’s death is especially tragic because — less than one year ago — the actor had completed rehab and was on a seemingly strong road to recovery. He’d wrapped up his role in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and, at the time, was working on indie film God’s Pocket.
I’ll update as news becomes available.
In the meantime, our thoughts and prayers go out to Hoffman’s three children Tallulah Hoffman, Cooper Alexander Hoffman, and Willa Hoffman, and his partner Mimi O’Donnell.
My family is currently going through a health crisis, and in light of that I’ve decided to place Celebrity Psychings on hiatus.
Combining the two topics–celebrities and mental health–isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, so it’s always been my goal to do so in the most respectful and educational way possible.
I can’t guarantee either of those while my attention now is primarily focused on my family.
When is it acceptable for a woman to behave toward a man in such a way that is unacceptable for a man to behave toward her?
Is it ever?
I read a piece of of an interview Kim Kardashian gave London’s Sunday Times Style supplement the other day during which new mom Kardashian talks about her weight loss and post-baby fashion choices.
Overall, yawn, right? We’ve heard enough about Kardashian’s closet for a lifetime.
Seems like things are looking up for Jonathan Rhys Meyers!
Thanks to Netflix, The Tudors isn’t exactly long gone; however, the 36-year-old Meyers is filling another swoon-worth role as Alexander Grayson, the lead in NBC’s new fall drama, Dracula.
Aside from Albert Nobbs (written by and starring Glenn Close), we haven’t seen much of Meyers, who’s reportedly struggled with substance abuse and alcohol addiction and entered rehab on several occasions.
Starting October 25, though, we’ll see him every Friday night!
(Unless you’re in the UK, in which case you have to wait until Halloween–which, let’s face it, is way cooler.)
It’s World Mental Health Day 2013, and this year’s theme is “Mental Health and Older Adults.”
Because our celebrity quotes posts are always popular, I thought I’d give the readers what they want!
Only, this time focus specifically on older celebrities* who have a lot of wisdom to share when it comes to getting older, wiser–and better!
