Zoe Saldana announces her weight on the new cover of Allure Magazine

Zoe Saldana lands the June cover of Allure Magazine, and on the cover, the actress reveals her weight, which seems bizarre to me. The unusual cover line is: “Zoe Saldana: 115 Pounds of Grit and Heartache.”

Okay?

Anyway, she looks beautiful in these pictures. Tiny, but beautiful. In the interview, I don’t think she came off very well, if I’m being honest. She has a cockiness, or air about her. I don’t know. Read the highlights below, let me know what you think:

On possibly being a lesbian, and not knowing what androgynous means: “I might end up with a woman raising my children. That’s how androgynous I am.”

On being with a woman? “Yes, I was raised that open.”

Has she ever been with another woman? She deliberates, then says, “Promise me one thing: You’re going to ask this question [in the article]—if you choose to, just put three dots as my response. That’s it.”

Dating actors: “Been there, done that, got the T-shirt.” TWO MORE half dressed pics of Zoe after the jump! More »

Katie Holmes looks beautiful on the April cover of Allure Magazine!

Katie Holmes lands the April issue of Allure, and she looks hotter than ever! Seriously, divorce looks good on her! She looks better now than she did when she was with ex-husband Tom Cruise!

Not really sure why Katie is on the cover this month, she’s not really working on anything new at the moment. Maybe she’s promoting her new life? Her new SINGLE life? Showing – hey…. I’m doing fine on my own!

Here are some clips from the interview:

Her future plans: “I hope this is a peaceful year for a lot of people in the world. When you look back on the last year, there were a lot of tragedies—Hurricane Sandy, the Connecticut shooting. I…I just hope it’s a good year for everyone.” You included? Holmes smiles, then is quiet for a few beats. “A lot of people have gone through a lot of stuff.”

Will she have more kids? “I don’t know. I’m open to it.”

She is now the face & co-owner of Alterna Haircare and the face of Bobbi Brown cosmetics: “I’ve been a fan of her makeup for so many years, because I just feel comfortable putting it on. And I don’t feel like I can screw it up.”

She was into supermodels: “Growing up, I was really into the supermodels. I would listen to RuPaul’s ‘You Better Work.’”

Suri chooses her own clothes: Suri is picking the wee high heels and feminine dresses herself. “She’s got a great eye, she really does,” Holmes says, with a hint of pride.

The best beauty advice Holmes got from her mother: “She said, ‘You may be pretty, and you may be talented, but nobody will remember that if you’re mean.’”

Law school? When asked about a National Enquirer report that Holmes might be going to law school, she is tickled. “Well, my brother and father are attorneys, and—we’ll see. I like the practical thinking of attorneys.”

Doing the now-closed play Dead Accounts: “I was open to – well, to whoever wanted me. But it was always my goal to make it back to the stage.”

Let’s discuss who Katie should date next. If she’s dated anyone since her divorce from Tom, we don’t know about it.  Who do we think Katie would look good next to? I say someone tall… someone dark…. and someone handsome. Hmm… Suggestions?

Keira Knightley covers Allure magazine, opens up about body issues. “I knew I wasn’t anorexic, but…”

Keira Knightley goes topless on the cover of Allure’s December issue, and in the article she reveals that she doesn’t have any issues showing off her body, even if everyone calls her an anorexic in the process.

“I’m quite rigorous about what gets exposed. No bottom half! I don’t mind exposing my tits because they’re so small –people really aren’t that interested,” she told the magazine.

But Keira does get a lot of attention for her weight. The 27-year-old is naturally thin, and for years has endured comments about being too skinny, or having an eating disorder. Keira says that the constant criticism gets to her every now and then.

“I knew I wasn’t anorexic. But maybe my body is somehow not right. Or my face is not right. Or the way I speak is not right. When you’re going through a period where you’re really getting a lot of criticism, you go, ‘Maybe all this is right!’ You just kind of want to hide it all,” she explained.

Rumors that Knightley suffers from anorexia have plagued her for years, and it’s far from the first time she has addressed the rumors.

“Hollywood is all about the way you look, and I don’t think that’s the healthy thing for anyone. But, if you’re strong and comfortable with yourself, then you’re going to be fine,” she told People in 2006. “[The press] said to me yesterday ‘How does it feel to be called anorexic?’ and I had no idea that I was. I’m not saying there aren’t people in the film industry that suffer from it, because I am sure that there are. But I’m quite sure I don’t have it.”

For more with Keira Knightley, pick up the December issue of Allure, on sale on at newsstands Nov. 20.

I can’t wait to see Keira in Anna Karenina!

PS: Where’s Keira’s nipple on the cover? Seriously.

Lauren Conrad Covers the November 2012 Issue of Allure

 

Conrad hasn’t been on a television show since The Hills ended in 2009, yet the obsessive interest in her love life continues. And to our surprise, she was willing to talk about it. She said that she’s endured her share of horrible blind dates, but the last one panned out. “I met my boyfriend on a setup,” she said of William Tell, a law student and former guitarist for the rock band Something Corporate. “I did not go with high hopes, though. What was nice about us is we both went in with preconceptions, but they were quickly broken.”

Conrad’s fans devour her advice on beauty, fashion—and etiquette. She told us about her dating rules (“No kiss on the first date. You can’t give it up right away!”), her taste in guys (“You don’t want a slob, but you don’t want a guy who’s constantly borrowing your tweezers”), and the problem with Los Angeles men (“The last year and a half, I was dating a lot, and it’s slim pickings”)

Conrad’s latest book, Lauren Conrad Beauty (HarperCollins), includes step-by-step hair and makeup lessons. “I didn’t want it to sound like a manual,” said Conrad. “I wanted it to sound like a friend or a big sister explaining it to you.”

When she was growing up, her first department-store makeup kit featured every color combination of eye shadow and only two shades of foundation “because [they thought] you’re either black or white. Do you know what I mean? It’s either really dark or you’re a mime,” Conrad said, laughing. “I always had a really white face, and I would match my eye shadow to my top every day, because I’d have, like, 50 colors to choose from.”

What makes someone beautiful, according to Conrad? “I think there’s something to be said about someone who is beautiful but isn’t aware of it,” she said. “There’s something really beautiful about being humble.” Conrad herself walks the line between confidence and humility. Her one attempt at taking a burlesque class didn’t end well. “I was terrible!” she said, blaming poor coordination. “I had a fedora, gloves that I would remove, and a boa. I thought it would raise my confidence, but it sort of destroyed it.”

Conrad credits her father, an architect, and mother for giving her a head for business. Her rule of thumb: “It’s OK to say no,” Conrad said. “I think people are smart and know when you’re doing something for money. I never really felt the need to do things simply for a paycheck.” Here, hairstylist Serge Normant and Allure creative director Paul Cavaco join Conrad on the set.
