The gorgeous Heidi Klum covers the February issue of Marie Claire!

Heidi Klum lands the February cover of Marie Claire, and she looks more beautiful than ever! In the interview, she opened up about Project Runway, her children, her divorce from Seal, sex and more. What she didn’t talk about was her new boyfriend, ex-bodyguard Martin Kirsten.

Heidi’s fantasy guest judge for Project Runway: Michelle Obama – “I don’t think we’ve ever had a first lady who is as cool and fashion-oriented as she is.”

On her mom, Erna: “She told me, ‘Don’t ever depend on a man,’” Klum says. “So I started making a living for myself when I was 18.”

A funny quote from Michael Kors, on filming the show with Heidi Klum and Nina Garcia: “After going through three pregnancies with Heidi and two with Nina, I know more about maternity life than any man gay or straight has a right to. I am so ticklish that Heidi once chased me around the runway chairs, jumped on me, and startled me, at which point I fainted – what man wouldn’t?”

Heidi on her divorce from Seal: “People say, ‘Oh, God, how devastating to go through a divorce. Did I wish for this to happen to my family? No. But everyone is healthy; we’re moving on with our lives. If someone got [very sick], God forbid, that would be a real problem. It’s not what I wanted – it’s not what anyone wanted – but it’s not a real problem.”

Heidi on sex: “Some people are more experimental in bed and others are more boring. If you are wild and crazy, bring it on so the other person is well aware that you have little devil horns that come out every once in a while. It’s good to make an effort to dress up sometimes, to do things outside of the norm.”

Heidi’s not interested in being a cougar: “I can understand why a woman finds a young man attractive, because the truth is that when men get older, their shape changes. Younger men train more, and when the clothes come off, it is nice to look at a sexy, ripped body. But I am realistic. I’m turning 40 next year; I don’t think I could deal with waking up next to a 25-year-old.”

On the idea of marrying again: “I don’t think so. No. No. I wanted to keep the memory of our wedding alive every year, that’s why I thought it would be fun to get married over and over. But now I don’t think it’s that important. I’m not angry about anything, but I don’t think I will. Maybe if I’m with someone for 15 or 20 years, and we do it in our old age as a fun thing to do…But I don’t have the urgency anymore.”

How people reacted to her first pregnancy: What others classify as problematic, Klum simply doesn’t. When she was 30 and pregnant by Italian race car magnate Flavio Briatore, her handlers were “freaking out,” saying, “I don’t know how the fashion industry will take you back after this.” For Klum, abortion wasn’t an option, and she walked the Victoria’s Secret runway show at four months along, with no one the wiser. “I thought, This is what is happening, and I’m going to embrace it,” she says. “I will figure it out, whatever comes my way.”

I loved the interview. I think she comes off as really interesting and intelligent. I like her quotes on divorce, and marrying again. It does seem like she really has her priorities in line.

Claire Danes covers Elle Magazine’s February issue!

An 8-months-pregnant Claire Danes glows on the cover of ELLE February, on newsstands nationwide January 15th. In the issue, she opens up about being a working mother, her relationship with husband Hugh Dancy, and even meeting President Obama.

On waiting to have children:

“I’ve always wanted to have kids, but I’m glad I didn’t until now. When I was thinking about [working and being a mother] originally, I was really nervous about it…I think I would make a lousy stay-at-home mom. It just wouldn’t suit me. I feel so fortunate, in that I’ve had this arrow-straight focus…that I wanted to act.”

On her relationship with husband Hugh Dancy:

“Hugh was just the right partner for me. I got very, very lucky. There’s only so much credit you can take when it just sort of works, you know? And obviously we work hard at maintaining our relationship – that is central to both our lives – but at the same time, it’s just this kind of ease that I can’t really account for.”

On meeting President Obama (a fan of Homeland) with her husband Hugh at the White House Correspondent’s dinner:

“Hugh was like, ‘We have to meet Obama,’ and we walked over before we could think and found ourselves shaking hands with him.  Hugh realized that he’d forgotten to actually properly introduce himself, and [President Obama] was like, ‘And you are?’ And Hugh was like, ‘I’m sorry, Mr. President.’  I said, ‘I’m Claire Danes,’ and he said, ‘Oh, you’re a fine actress.’ And I said, ‘You’re a fine president!’  And he said, ‘Oh, you’re a finer actress than I am president.’ I didn’t have any retort.  Hugh and I went immediately to the bar and had a big shot of vodka.”

On teenagers growing up in Hollywood today:

“When I was younger, I was a little bit more restless, but there weren’t as many eyes. There weren’t as many tabloids or the number of cameras that everyone’s armed with. I feel huge sympathy for teenagers who have suddenly found themselves as public figures now, because it just sucks for them.”

Since the interview, 33-year-old Claire gave birth to her first child, son Cyrus Michael Christopher.

Scarlett Johansson covers the February issue of Elle UK!

Scarlett Johansson lands the February cover of Elle UK, and I think she looks gorgeous! Scarlett is still promoting her role as Janet Leigh in ‘Hitchcock’. Sidenote: Did you guys see ‘Hitchcock’? I saw it, and I was very underwhelmed. I felt like there wasn’t any MEAT to the movie. After the movie was over, I thought to myself “Well, what was the point of that movie?” I didn’t feel like there was enough story in the film. I didn’t feel connected to any of the characters. It was….. just okay.

Anyway, on the cover, Scarlett is wearing all Victoria Beckham. She looks great. Here’s more from the interview, via Celebitchy:

On turning 30 soon: “I feel like I’ve been transitioning from young woman into womanhood for a very long time. Now as I approach 30, with the last few years behind me, I feel like growing pains are behind me. It’s just nice to feel happy.”

About the phone hacking of her nude pics: “It was a crazy time. I had some problems in my family and publicly, my relationship — all that stuff. It was like ‘Oh man what next?’ But life has ebbs and flows, don’t you think? Things are more manageable now, but I’m sure something will crumble. I keep it together. I am relatively composed but I can also lose my s***. I’m pretty controlled, and probably controlling too, for better or worse. I’m working on it.”

She’s not looking to get married again: “I got married when I was young and it was incredibly romantic and I liked being married, actually. But it is different. It’s hard to put into words. To me, being in a functioning relationship doesn’t mean you have to be married. I never think about marriage. Is that weird? The only time I ever think about it is when people ask me. ‘Would I get married again?’ It’s really not important to me. It has no relevance to me right now. I’m not having kids any time soon, I’m in a nice relationship, I’m working a lot and, like I said, it’s not important to me.”

On dating outside of the acting pool: “I think there are challenges whether that person’s in your profession or not. It’s nice that [fellow actors] can relate, and you have a shorthand when you’re talking about work, but that can also be monotonous. For me, most importantly, I look for a partner who is creative. I like people that have a colourful way of looking at things, that are inspiring and like art, music and film’.”

On her unwitting “sexy” image: “I think any woman who is curvy and wears a gown to an event is, like, super-sexualised. I mean, at the time I was 18, 19. I was young. I’ve always been curvy. It runs in the family. Throw on an evening frock and it’s like all of a sudden you have boobs and everyone is like: ‘bombshell!’ Instantly it was: ‘The new Marilyn’.”

This isn’t the first time Scarlett has complained about being sexualized. Enough already. You’re a beautiful woman – and people are going to comment. There are many worse things you could be called than Marilyn Monroe. Ask Lindsay Lohan.

Sarah Hyland Graces TeenPROM’s 2013 Cover

She may make you laugh on ABC’s Modern Family, but Sarah Hyland takes fashion seriously. The actress graces TeenPROM’s 2013 cover, on newsstands December 25th, and in the interview, she opens up about stepping up her fashion game, her longtime boyfriend Matt Prokop, her senior prom experience, and more.

“I’ve always expressed myself through my style, from when I was a child playing dress up to now.”, the actress says. “I think fashion is a way of expressing yourself and who you are,” Sarah says.

“I don’t think you ever make fashion mistakes because if you like it at that time, then it wasn’t a mistake,” she says.

On the Marchesa gown she wore at the 2012 Emmys, which she collaborated on with designer Georgina Chapman: “I think it’s cool to be recognized, especially since I co-designed it,” Sarah says. “But I don’t think people’s opinions should matter too much.”

However, there is one opinion she takes into consideration, that of her longtime boyfriend, actor Matt Prokop: “His opinion means a lot to me. If he says he likes it, then I’m like, ‘Okay this is good.’”
