Dakota Fanning covers the March issue of Glamour Magazine, talks about her Marc Jacobs controversy!

Dakota Fanning lands the March cover of Glamour Magazine. The almost 19-year-old actress continues to try and shed her little-girl imagine, although if you’re wearing a Mickey Mouse sweater, it is rather confusing.

In the article, Dakota opens up about her Marc Jacobs “Oh Lola” perfume advertisement that was banned in the UK for being “sexually provocative”, and how Dakota thinks if you see something wrong with it – then the problem lies with you. (You can see the controversial ad here)

On fame & fashion: “It’s really fun when you’re getting dressed for something. It’s not when you’re in the rain with an umbrella and trying to carry a case of water. Yep, that’s me, alone, coming from Duane Reade. I’m not wearing a bra. Deal with it.”

Being surprised about her Marc Jacobs ad? “Yeah, I was! If you want to read something into a perfume bottle, then I guess you can. But it’s also like, Why are you making it about that, you creep? I love Marc and trust him, and we just laughed about it.”

Could she ever be a fashion designer? “I don’t think so. I mean, I won’t rule it out, because then one day I’ll be like, ‘I said that in Glamour in 2013, and here I am now [with my own line].’ But when you know designers and see the work that they put into making their collection, and how much passion they have for that–I think that’s so amazing. And I don’t have the passion to design clothes. It’s nice to be able to grow up and know what you want to do…. I’m reminded of that every time I make a film.”

On her little sister, Elle: “She’s very uninhibited and will try pretty much anything. Even the way she dresses– she dresses totally for herself. She risks being made fun of…by me, which I sometimes do, because I’m an older sister! But I totally admire her and think she’s very cool.”

I like Dakota, I think she’s very talented. Her younger sister, Elle, is pretty cute as well. I thought these pictures were really pretty. I do think it’s hard to see her as a woman. I think it’s crazy that she’s still just 18… given all she’s done already, it seems like she should be 25 or something!

Michelle Williams shares the cover of InStyle Magazine with Mila Kunis and Rachel Weisz

Michelle Williams, Mila Kunis and Rachel Weisz land the latest cover of InStyle Magazine. The actresses are promoting their new movie, ‘Oz the Great and Powerful’. I have high hopes for this movie, I hope it’s as good as the preview looks!

InStyle hasn’t released anything from the interview yet, so until then…enjoy this sneak peek!

Tiffani Thiessen poses in her underwear for ‘Me In My Place’, says “I was never the waify model type”

Tiffani Thiessen just reminds me of my childhood. I remember her best from ‘Saved By the Bell’, and then when she joined the cast of ‘90210’. She’s one of the few child actors who actually grew up to have a successful TV career. She now stars on ‘White Collar’ a show I really wish I was into, I hear it’s good. Anyway, Tiffani posed for ‘Me In My Place’, which caught her at home, in her underwear. Totally natural, of course.

I like these pictures. I think she looks cute, and not trashy. They look classy for her age (38). She looks great, and I think if you’ve got it – flaunt it! Here are some tidbits from the interview:

Howard Stern once said she had the “most perfect breasts in the world”: “Yeah, he said that before I had kids (laughing loudly). He first said that around the time that first FHM cover came out, it came up again when I did his show again last year. I’m not gonna say I’m not flattered, he’s Howard Stern, Howard knows boobs. The fact that he talked about me positively, I’ll take it! He was really nice and complimentary, in his own special way he was very respectful.”

On the pressure of being a sex symbol: “I think any time you are on a hit show as a young actor or actress, you feel that way. Then as a woman, there’s some additional pressures you feel to look a certain way and be a certain size. I was not the girl that was a size 2 and didn’t work for it. I was never the waify model type.”

What’s the one character she wants to play? “I got very close to that once, one thing that I always wanted to do was be a Bond Girl. I tested but didn’t get it. It was also probably the hardest rejection, because I’m such a fan of the movies. It was between me and 2 other actresses at the time. Unfortunately the actress who got the job, went on to be voted as one of the worst Bond Girls as well.”

Guilty pleasures? “Wine and chocolate. Or if a “Designing Women” marathon is on, I won’t switch it off. God I love that show.”

Favorite 90s song: “I absolutely loved Boys 2 Men, but I’d have to say George Michael’s “I Want Your Sex.” I played that over and over again, I’m not kidding you.”

Being a TV staple: “Sometimes it’s crazy to think about how “Saved By The Bell” and “90210” ran for so long and internationally too. I feel very fortunate and blessed, to have worked on shows that lived for a while. Especially after experiencing that popularity at such a young age. Then to continue to say I’m a working actress now, I still really enjoy it.”

Love her!

Emma Stone covers W Magazine (and we wish she looked cuter!)

Why does Emma Stone always look like a hot mess on magazine covers? Okay, maybe it’s not EVERY time, but honestly, it’s enough times to make me remember she usually looks like a hot mess. On her Interview Magazine cover earlier this year, she was almost unrecognizable. She covered Vogue Magazine, and looked so bizarre, she almost looked like a robot. In fact, the last decent cover I’ve seen of Emma Stone was back in August 2011, when she landed the cover of Vanity Fair. She looked absolutely adorable. So what’s with all these weird photo shoots she’s been doing lately? Why is she afraid to look cute (like she is!)? Who’s to blame??

She looks like a big ol’ hot mess in these new pictures for the February issue of W Magazine. Here are some highlights from the interview:

On her role in ‘Gangster Squad': “Grace Faraday, who moved to Hollywood in the ’40s to become a star and ended up falling in with Mickey Cohen, a very well-known gangster, and his brood. Grace is also having an affair with Jerry Wooters, portrayed by Ryan Gosling. He’s one of the cops investigating Mickey Cohen. Grace is playing with fire—she’s constantly torn, caught in that classic conundrum between good and evil.”

On starring in dramas lately, rather than comedies: “In real life, sometimes it’s uncomfortable for me not to go for the joke. I’ve been looking at that in myself lately. Often, joking for me is a way of diffusing the awkwardness of a situation, so it’s kind of exhilarating to be a part of projects where there’s nothing funny or lighthearted.”

Presenting last year’s Oscars with Ben Stiller: “It was for best visual effects, so Ben and I had all these funny ideas. Planet of the Apes was nominated, so we thought we would bring a chimp onstage and I’d say, “Oh—it looks so real.” And Ben would be like, “It’s a real chimp.” And I’d be insisting, “Oh, my God—the work they do now is so staggering.” And he’d repeat, “It’s a real chimp.” But apparently, you can’t make the Oscar presentation about a particular movie or else the audience thinks you’re swaying the vote toward that movie. So instead, we pretended that Ben had been to the Oscars many times and I was this really overly enthusiastic Oscar presenter. I was very excited, and he was not…. Though a lot of people thought it was something else: When I came offstage, they were saying, “You were so drunk!” And I wasn’t. Not until after…”

On her first Oscars: “At first, when you go to premieres and award shows, you’re thinking, How the hell am I here? All these people I’ve never met are here, and it’s so cool! And then, as time goes on, it’s a little bit like, Ah…it’s more like work. There are only a couple of events where I’ve truly felt, That was an awesome night—and the Oscars was one of them.”

What movie makes her cry: “The end of City Lights makes me cry every time I see it—when Charlie Chaplin walks by the shop window and the once blind girl brings him a flower and pins it to his lapel. She’s always thought that he was a millionaire, but he was really a tramp. She feels his hand and says, “You?” And he nods. He says, “You can see now?” And she says, “Yes, I can see now.” They cut back to his face, and he lights up like you’ve never seen. That last line—“Yes, I can see now”—has so many meanings. It’s echoed in every great romantic movie since then and in every great moment of life.”

I won’t hold this photo shoot against her. I love her still…. :)

Who’s going to see ‘Gangster Squad’? I’m totally going to see it (Sean Penn, Josh Brolin and Ryan Gosling in the SAME MOVIE!?) but I wish it was getting better reviews. It’s currently getting a 34% on Rotten Tomatoes, and I usually agree with them. 34% means the movie is probably going to really suck – but will that stop me? Probably not. Have any of you seen it yet? I’d love to hear your opinion!
