The beautiful Kristen Wiig is Marie Claire’s August cover girl!

Kristen Wiig is Marie Claire’s August cover girl. She looks gorgeous! The ‘Saturday Night Live’ comedian opens up with the magazine about her humble beginnings, and dreaming for a bigger and better life. ”I wanted to be Justine Bateman,” she says, recalling the slyly appealing sibling on the Michael J. Fox sitcom Family Ties. “She was so cool. Or Lisa Bonet“—The Cosby Show’s resident Bohemian. “I just didn’t think it was an option, coming from a town where people don’t pack their bags and move out to Hollywood.”

Here is more from the interview, which you can read in full here:

Kristen Wiig on trying out for Saturday Night Live in 2005:

Wiig came to New York from Southern California in autumn 2005 to join the cast of Saturday Night Live, bringing with her a handful of impressions (Drew Barrymore, Björk, Jessica Simpson), a few characters she’d developed while with the influential Los Angeles improvisation group The Groundlings, and a secret fear that she’d soon be run out of town on a rail. “I remember being so scared,” she says, “that after I was done with those characters—if they made it on the show—that I wouldn’t have any other ideas.”

Kristen on her boyfriend, Strokes drummer Fabrizio Moretti:

Not overly inclined toward personal revelation—”I am shyer than most people think”—the 38-year-old Wiig states it plain nonetheless: “I will say that I’m happier than I’ve ever been,” she says, “and I feel very lucky right now.” Why? “Where I am now. Who he is. Those are the two big ones.”

On leaving ‘SNL’:

As we chat, it’s been little more than 100 hours since Wiig’s final show as a cast member on SNL, capping a seven-season run that made her a deeply beloved comedic star. “I know a lot of people probably assume, ‘Oh, she’s leaving because she is going to be doing movies now and things like that,’ which I will be,” she notes. “But I just always knew it was going to be seven and that was it. I think maybe if I were 22, I could see myself staying a little bit, but it just felt like the right time.”

Still, “it was very emotional,” she says, nursing a double-shot cappuccino. “I just wanted to get through it without breaking down in every sketch. Because nothing says comedy like breaking down.”

On her final ‘SNL’ scene, where Mick Jagger serenaded her:

“It was a very surreal moment,” she says. “You have all this stuff going on in your head, like, ‘I can’t believe seven years has gone by, and I’m going to miss all these people.’ And I’m like, ‘Oh, by the way, Mick Jagger is to my right, and I just danced a waltz with him.’ So there’s that.”

I just love her – but I’m so sad to see her leave ‘SNL’. She might have been the only reason I watched the show in the first place. I can’t imagine it without her!! That being said, I can’t wait to see where her career goes from now! ‘Bridesmaids’ is hands down one of my all-time favorite movies. She’s pure genius!

Gisele Bundchen’s baby bump exposed on the new cover of Vogue?

Is Gisele Bundchen pregnant? So far – she’s not saying….but this cover certainly isn’t doing much to dispel the rumors!

The supermodel teased fans again on the new cover of Vogue Brazil, July 2012. In the editorial, Gisele poses with her belly covered in almost every picture – which isn’t like her.

The Gisele pregnancy rumors, which say that the 31-year-old model is pregnant with her second child with husband Tom Brady, began about a month ago with several reports from the Brazilian media. Us Weekly reported the pregnancy as fact in early June, yet cited only an unnamed “source”; neither Gisele nor her reps have yet to comment.

What’s the verdict? Pregnant or not?

Sofia Vergara’s smoking hot Spanish Vanity Fair cover!

Sofia Vergara, who stars on ABC’s ‘Modern Family’, looks stunning in the new Spanish issue of Vanity Fair.

The 39-year-old actress wore a strapless red suit, while holding a cigarette in her right hand.

I think Sofia always looks stunning in print. Her voice drives me absolutely insane. Everytime I see her live – she gets less and less sexy. I know a lot of you would disagree, many think her accent is cute. It’s just way too whiny for me!

But here – she looks stunning! I love her hair shorter like this!


Anne Hathaway on the Catwoman suit: “It was a psychological terrorist”

Anne Hathaway is Allure Magazine’s July cover girl! The ‘Batman: The Dark Knight Rises’ actress shows her famous dimples, and long brown hair for the cover. (Shortly after this shoot, she buzzed her hair off to play Fatine in ‘Les Miserables’.

In the issue, Anne opens up about both roles, and the physical changes she underwent for them. She opened up about what it took for her to wear the Catwoman suit, how she’s dropping weight for ‘Les Miserables’, and how she’s comfortable getting nude on film. Here’s more!

On wearing the Catwoman suit:

Hathaway says that becoming worthy of the Catwoman suit for the upcoming Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises, permanently changed her relationship with her body. “It was a psychological terrorist,” she says. “The suit, thoughts of my suit, changing my life so I would fit into that suit…. It dominated my year.” She added, “I didn’t understand how you could be thin and strong. I went into the gym for ten months and didn’t come out.”

On being told to undergo plastic surgery:

Despite her obvious star potential early on, Hathaway was constantly subjected to suggestions for remodeling. “Someone wanted to gift me Lasik surgery,” said the near-sighted actress. And she was told to get Botox at 23. “I was like, ‘Can we maybe discuss heavy creams first?’” Not to say that she’s adamantly opposed to any kind of intervention. “But I reserve the right to figure that out until after I’ve pushed out a bunch of babies.”

On getting nude on film:

It was clear early on that Hathaway was both fearless and sophisticated in knowing what she could pull off and what she couldn’t. Nudity? Fine. Even today, as an A-list actress, she’s surprisingly unbothered by it. “I’m as vain as the next girl,” she says, “but I think it’s my job to show people as they live, and nudity is part of life.”

On turning down the lead in ‘Knocked Up’:

At the same time, she’s passed on roles with scenes she just couldn’t wrap her mind around. Example: Hathaway turned down the role Katherine Heigl took in Knocked Up because of an explicit birth scene. “My issue with it was that having not experienced motherhood myself, I didn’t know how I was gonna feel on the other side about giving birth. And by the way,” she adds, laughing, “I could pop a kid out and think, Oh, well, I really should have done that movie.”

On her fiance, Adam Shulman, and having children:

Hathaway is engaged to her boyfriend of three years, Adam Shulman, an actor turned jewelry designer. While family is very much on her mind as her next step, she isn’t sure how many children she’ll have. “But I’ll start with one healthy one,” she says.

On her vegan diet:

She is hoping, too, that she will be able to maintain her vegan regimen. She describes the diet changes as a “transformation.” Not that she doesn’t have her moments: “I mean, cheese is amazing,” she says. “[But] once you’re over the cheese hump, there’s really nothing left.”

On Anne’s friend Kate Lee doing her makeup during the shoot:

When she arrived on the set, Hathaway and her close friend, makeup artist Kate Lee, shown here, jumped up and down and screamed when they saw each other. For the cover shot, Lee created eyes that were “more Liz Taylor than Sophia Loren.” First, she drew a thin black line from the outer edge of the lashes inward. “It’s not your stereotypical ’50s swoop,” Lee said. She swept medium brown powder under Hathaway’s cheekbones and blended a creamy nude luminizer on top. As a final step, Lee used a liner in the same shade as Hathaway’s lips to enhance their shape.

On styling Anne’s hair for the shoot:

Hairstylist Serge Normant (shown below) wanted to give Hathaway a “polished bedroom texture” for the cover. After spritzing on volumizing spray, he blow-dried her hair with a medium-size boar-bristle brush. He blasted a little dry shampoo on the roots to pump them up and smoothed dry oil on the ends for shine.
