Halle Berry lands the cover of November’s InStyle magazine, and she looks absolutely gorgeous! She looks stunning in a tight red cutout dress, looking hotter than ever (she just gets better with age!).
In the interview, Halle talks about her custody battle with her ex Gabriel Aubrey. She desperately wants to move her daugther Nahla to France, where her fiance Olivier Martinez lives. She claims she wants to remove Nahla from the constant presence of the paparazzi.
On why she wants to move to France
“It’s the appeal of privacy and a greater sense of safety for Nahla. I don’t want her to grow up around the tabloids. Because we are followed all the time, she is starting to feel like she is somehow special, and of course she is, but I want her to understand that she’s special because of who she is, not because she was born into this celebrity blender.”
On her custody battle
“There is turbulence, bit this too shall pass.”
On her wedding plans:
“I do know it will be very small. I haven’t been to many weddings, but I went to one this weekend with 250 guests. I thought, Wow – so this is a wedding, huh? I’ve never had that, nor have I wanted that. I wasn’t even trying to catch the bouquet!”
On her fiance Olivier Martinez:
“When I first met Olivier, there wasn’t the initial ‘I’m in love!’ It was something that grew more gradually—and it feels more real because of that. [Marriage] is another one of those never-say-never things. I’m a hopeless romantic, and I won’t stop till I get it right!”
“He’s silly, a clown, and very much the life of the party, which is good for someone like me. Danny Downer … been there, done that. Now I like Louie Lightfoot!”
On aging in Hollywood:
“Throughout my career I have been talked out of things I wanted to do, and when I look back I think, I should have followed my instincts. I relied on others to guide me because I thought they knew better. But as I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned to trust myself. Don’t stress about your age or fight it. Appreciate the young women who look like you once did, but don’t strive to be like them. You’re moving into a new phase of your life—embrace it. That’s what I hope to do.”
On not being defined by her hairstyle:
“I think I am at my best when my hair is short. It’s easier to take care of and more of who I am. Women are conditioned to think we need long hair. I see that happening with my daughter. She is so in love with her hair right now. She says, ‘Look, Mommy—it’s so long!” As women, we think it defines us, and we learn that at a young age.”
I think it’s a great interview, and she seems very open and honest. Whether or not she’s being entirely honest about the moving to France situation, meh…. who knows. I think she wants away from her ex more than she wants to be away for Nahla’s sake. But who knows.

Ashley Greene covers the November issue of Marie Claire, and inside the magazine she has lots to say about ‘Twilight’ and how it’s changed who she is. The actress reveals how she’s dealing with her newfound fame, and more importantly how she copes with it.
“It was a hard adjustment going from zero to 100 in a day,” the 25-year-old “Breaking Dawn – Part 2″ star tells the magazine. “But it was also hard to talk to [friends], because you don’t want to be a jerk. After the movie ["Twilight"] came out, some people said, ‘You changed.’ And I said, ‘I haven’t changed, dude. Your opinion of me has changed because I’m working on this film.’ Trust me, my parents would let me know.”
But although some of her pals couldn’t deal with her blossoming career, Greene says she understands that it’s hard to keep in touch with people when you’re always traveling or on location.
“I’m always here and there — everyone in my industry is — and that’s why a lot of relationships are fleeting,” she explains. “I’ve gotten very good at detaching whenever I have to go away for three months, which I realize is hard on friends and kind of selfish.”
As for her love life, Greene says that’s a struggle too, considering she doesn’t have enough time to devote to romance.
“You go on a couple of dates, and then someone ships off to do a movie,” she says. “It’s not like you’re going to fly out and see them, because it’s not serious enough for that.”
As for how she’s adjusting to her life in the spotlight, Greene admits stardom has its perks, including first-class plane tickets.
“‘Twilight’ has ruined me,” Greene, who plays Alice Cullen in the hit franchise, reveals. “When this is all over, flying internationally is going to be very hard for me. It is just not worth it to buy a first-class ticket, because of the cost.”
Still, the money she saves from those international flights will go toward maintaining her new life.
“I’m lucky because my dad taught me to be frugal and save,” she says. “And that’s important because I want to know that I don’t have to take an acting job for two or three years if I don’t want to and that I’ll still be able to make my house and car payments and buy food for my dogs.”
I’ve met Ashley a couple times, and she is shockingly beautiful. She’s tiny and her skin looks like porcelain. She is beyond nice….seems like a really good person. She looks gorgeous in Marie Claire as well!
I’m hoping she realizes that having big ears has nothing to do with bad hygiene. She’s not that dumb, right?
Kim Kardashian has had her fair share of dating men in the entertainment industry, and has two marriages under her belt that didn’t work. Now Kim reveals to Tatler Magazine what are her biggest turn offs, and what is a deal breaker when it comes to dating.
In a behind-the-scenes video, the 31-year-old was asked what turns her off when it comes to men. “Anything to do with bad hygiene, like teeth or nails or big ears. I’m really weird about stuff like that.”
The video goes alongside a spread she has inside the British magazine, showing her getting ready for a photoshoot.
She answered some more quirky questions. On what her last meal would be if she were on Death Row, ”Cheese pizza, Oreo cookie ice-cream and maybe a vanilla cup cake.”
In the article, Kim also opens up about her “best friend” and boyfriend, Kanye West. “It’s so nice to have a best friend in this game who understands everything you’re going through. Being with someone I’ve known for so many years is comforting. He’s been there through so many different stages of my life and before I was famous, so this relationship is a different thing entirely. It’s good to be aware that he definitely doesn’t want anything from me too, because he understands the business. I can’t even think about being with anyone else than the man I’m with.”
After having a number of high-profile relationships in recent years with the likes of Reggie Bush, Miles Austin and her basketball player ex-husband Kris Humphries , Kim admitted she is a ‘hopeless romantic’ and believes every boyfriend she’s ever had has been ‘the one’.
She explained: “When I look back at interviews I gave [about previous boyfriends] saying, “We’re talking about marriage, etc.” It’s embarrassing. And I really believed it at the time!
‘I’m such a hopeless romantic that I’ll always believe the next one is the one.’
Posing in what appeared to be a white wedding dress with ruffle detail, the brunette beauty also hit back at claims her brief 72-day marriage to second husband Kris Humphries was a publicity stunt for Keeping Up with the Kardashians, explaining the failure of the short union was ‘embarrassing’.
‘I mean, that is just not the person I am. Who would honestly get married for ratings? It’s not like the ratings had dropped and we needed a boost,’ Kim added in the Tatler interview.
Read the full interview in the November issue of Tatler magazine, on sale now.
Esquire Magazine has named Mila Kunis the Sexiest Woman Alive of 2012. The actress is determined not to let the title get to her ego.
Mila appears in the November issue wearing little to no clothes. The 29-year-old actress told the magazine that she tries not to take being desired too seriously. “What I do and who I am are two different things. And they always will be. What happens with people is they lose sight of who they are, and they become either who they want to be or who they are perceived to be. But whatever it is, it is no longer who they are. So much of who you are in this industry is based on what that critic says, what that director says, what that actor says. People start believing all that, and they become what everybody else wants them to be. And I think that I’ve consciously separated my two lives.”
Mila is currently dating her former ‘That ’70s Show’ co-star Ashton Kutcher. She goes on to admit that while she’s lusted after on the job, she tries to remain normal in her real life. ”I love what I do. I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. But when I’m done with work, I’m done with work. I think that if I bought into the hype, I would lose all sight of who I am, and so much of who I am is what my parents went through and instilled in me. And I never want to lose that. Ever. Because I would be so disappointed if I didn’t make them proud.”
She told the magazine about her following of political happenings: ‘I find it all to be incredibly entertaining. I went to the White House Correspondents’ Dinner with Wolf Blitzer. It’s weird: You get invited by people you don’t know–and I never wanna go again, because I had the most incredible experience. Ever.
‘I watch CNN or MSNBC all day long, every day. So I meet with Wolf, and I was like, “Oh, my God. There’s Wolf Blitzer.” Like two drinks in, I just start talking. “So, about Ahmadinejad‘s nephew …” Wolf was surprised I followed politics.’

Miranda Kerr covers the latest issue of RUSSH Magazine, from Australia. Inside the magazine, Miranda poses for a series of beautiful shots, including the one above – showing off her rather ridiculous abs!
We didn’t get any tidbits from the interview, but Miranda also covers Cosmo South America this month, so I’ll use quotes from that.
On her body: “I have a good relationship with my body and I think that comes down to the fact that I listen to what it’s telling me. I’d say the only thing I can sometimes deprive my body of is sleep, and it’s in those moments of being tired I can feel a little overwhelmed.”
On beauty tips: “My all time best beauty tip is to dry-brush your body daily. It improves the functioning of the lymphatic system, improves circulation and leaves skin smoother. It also keeps cellulite at bay.”
On goals: “I have pictures of places I’d love to go, people I hope to meet, things I’d like to do, and even pictures of friends and family I pray will remain in my life. I find it uplifting to look over the images and focus on them as part of my future.”
On her husband Orlando Bloom being romantic: “One time in Paris, we went to The Hemingway Bar beneath the Ritz. Sitting there, we were inspired to write love notes to each other. I didn’t know he’d kept these until a few years later – at Christmas – he presented me with a frame containing all those notes. [It's] my favorite gift!”
There were a bunch of rumors recently about her relationship with Orlando falling apart, so I’m glad to hear it wasn’t true. I think they are one of Hollywood’s cutest couples, and they make quite perfect babies!

I’ll start off by saying Cameron Diaz looks amazing. Really, she has 6′ legs, amazing skin, and normal(ish) looking implants. She looks fantastic, really. What I have a problem with – is the pictures with her legs spread. Is that really necessary? She looks so much prettier in more tamed-down pictures like the cover above.
The fact that the pictures were taken by resident perv Terry Richardson probably have something to do with the nature of the pictures.
Here are some highlights from the interview!
Turning 40 years old: “For the first time in my life I’m content. I’m so excited. Getting older is the best part of life. Like, I know more than I’ve ever known. I have gratitude. I know myself better. I feel more capable than ever. And as far as the physicality of it – I feel better at 40 than I did at 25. I’m so excited. Getting older is the best part of life. Like, I know more than I’ve ever known.”
Why she never got married: “I’m smart! No, it’s hard to say. It just wasn’t the thing I was drawn to. I certainly didn’t want it in my 20s. Or my 30s… so, we’ll see! I’d always wanted to get hitched in Vegas at least three times.”
What she looks for in a dude: “I want someone who takes care of themselves, who’s strong. To hear people are engaged in life like that is exciting to me. It’s funny because as my girlfriends get older, I see how their relationships have evolved, and you know, the people you’re drawn to changes. I’m not attracted to the same people that I was drawn to in my twenties.”
She hasn’t ruled out kids: “I don’t need to have the children in my life be a part of my literal flesh. And anyway, there’s still a possibility of that, I ain’t that old. I’m feeling very … capable.”
She claims she doesn’t Botox: “There’s no such thing as anti-ageing. You can’t go back in time. So for me, it’s about living in this moment, the best that I can. Contentment is about coming to terms with life as it is.”
What do you think of Cam’s photo shoot from the magazine?
