Brooklyn Decker says her husband has “given me a new appreciation for my body”

Brooklyn Decker seems to be everywhere these days! When she’s not lounging by the pool in her bikini, she’s starring in films like ‘Battleship’ and ‘What to Expect When You’re Expecting’ and keeping her famous body in shape. (Check out her 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover)

She covers the May issue of Women’s Health, and inside the mag she opened up about life with her tennis-star husband Andy Roddick, how she keeps in shape, and the girls she has a crush on.

On her husband, Andy Roddick:

“Being married to Andy has given me a new appreciation for my body,” she told the magazine. “He’s taught me that it’s not how thin you are that matters. It’s how your body performs, how it endures wear and tear.”

On bonding over a hike with her ‘Battleship’ costar Taylor Kitsch:

“You create a bonding experience that you never would have had,” she said about working out with friends. “My hike with Taylor Kitsch [her love interest in “Battleship”] was very strenuous, and we needed ropes to get to the top of the summit. But when we were finished, we knew each other a lot better than if we had just had the usual dinner and drinks night. Plus, no matter how much time you spend in the weight room, you simply can’t get a better workout for your legs than when you go for a long hike.”

Her current girl crushes: Kristen Wiig, Lana Del Rey and Erin Andrews:

“When I see a woman who’s overcome obstacles, who’s done something with her life, I want to say to her, ‘Wow, you’re cool. Your career is awesome, and I’d love to hang out with you.’ It’s a respect thing,” she said.

Brooklyn on whether or not she’s going to model again:

“I loved the travel but I didn’t love the work,” she said. “I mean, come on, modeling is only so stimulating!”

I like Brooklyn. She is gorgoues!

Does your lady business need a little bleaching? There’s a product for that!

Have you ever thought that your lady parts need a little lightening up? (Yeah, me either)

There’s a new ad for an Indian skin lightening product called Clean and Dry Intimate Wash, that promotes a product that bleaches that whole area!

In the commercial, a couple lounges in their house, the man idly reading a newspaper while the woman pouts to herself because, clearly, he’s ignoring her due to her dark-colored privates. Luckily, she gets ahold of Clean and Dry, which makes her vulva a few shades lighter, and her husband is happy-go-lucky again. Whew! Divorce averted.

Skin lightening creams have a long and controversial history in India and Asia, including a spree of ads for the products that feature darker-skinned women who seem devastated over the fact that they’re not Caucasian. A popular Bollywood actress shucked lightening cream for the Body Shop in ads that made her skin look multiple shades paler than it does in real life. Vaseline even launched a line of whitening creams — and a phone app that lets you digitally lighten your skin — in India. And women in Jamaica are making potentially dangerous bleaching creams with homemade ingredients.

Of course, some people think lightening creams shouldn’t be a sociologically-charged issue, arguing that women who seek pale skin aren’t any different than Caucasian women who want to be tan. (Or this article, which strangely argues that fair features are… easier to see?)

But regardless, when the ideal of light skin gets intimate, a beauty issue that’s already controversial gets sexualized, and you end up with commercials like the one above that not-so-subtly blames your relationship problems on your skin tone.

GROSS!!! I’ve never thought of lightening my lady business, and even after watching this commercial – the idea still doesn’t sound exciting.

Scarlett Johansson’s stunning Vogue cover and photo shoot

Scarlett Johansson covers the May issue of Vogue, and inside the magazine are some gorgeous pictures by Mario Testino. How do you think Scarlett’s cover compares to Charlize Theron’s Vogue UK cover? I think Charlize’s pictures turned out better, but Scarlett certainly looks beautiful!

Mark Ruffalo poses with Scarlett in the picture below! (YUM!)

“Scarlett played it with a wink in her eye,” says Mark Ruffalo of his costar’s portrayal of Black Widow in The Avengers. Johansson in a Vionnet silk dress. Delfina Delettrez earrings and necklace. Gaspar gloves. Judith Leiber clutch. Ruffalo in a Brooks Brothers tuxedo jacket and bow tie. Paul Stuart vest. Tom Ford shirt and pants.

“I don’t want to be a victim,” says Johansson of the hacking scandal. Prabal Gurung silk-charmeuse dress. Stephen Jones high-heel hat. Beauty Note: Nothing says glamour like a simple red lip. Dolce & Gabbana’s Passion Duo Gloss Fusion Lipstick in Magic mixes lipstick’s staying power with the moisture of a gloss.

Johansson, says Woody Allen, has “the acting ability to be not just a passing pinup girl but a genuinely meaningful actress.” Dolce & Gabbana blush satin dress.

“I’m a singing, dancing, jazz-hands kid.” Nina Ricci pale-pink silk dress. Jean Schlumberger for Tiffany & Co. diamond earrings. Sonia Rykiel glass pearl brooches. Delfina Delettrez bracelets. Christian Louboutin platform heels.

Kelly Osbourne opens up about being called fat, and loving her body

Kelly Osbourne looks amazing in the May issue of Glamour Magazine.

In the interview, she opens up about how to have body confidence.

The 27-year-old Fashion Police star looks cute in her fuchsia-colored Miu Miu dress, Solange Azagury-Patridge earrings and Brian Atwood peep-toed pumps.

Kelly accepts who she is:

“I’m the most uncool person on Earth, and I love myself. I don’t want to be cool! I feel good in my own skin because I’ve accepted the fact that I’m me.

“That’s what’s so great about being alive and being on this planet: Everybody’s different.”

Kelly says women need to accept who they are, without trying to be what society considers “perfect”:

“Women are so unforgiving of themselves. We don’t recognise our own beauty because we’re too busy comparing ourselves to other people. No we are not all Gisele Bundchen; we’re not all Beyoncé. But I can tell you even the most beautiful girls in the world have felt insecure. And just seeing the pressure my friends Kim Kardashian and Kate Moss are under makes me never want to even be the prettiest woman in the room. There is no such thing as perfection.”

On her feud with Christina Aguilera, after the singer called Kelly “fat”:

Sometimes it’s other people’s voices you have to shut out. That’s what happened with me and Christina Aguilera, which people don’t understand.

She called me fat for years. One night on Fashion Police I said, F*** you. Now you’re fat too.’ I didn’t say I wasn’t fat. I said, ‘Now you know how it feels’” And I’m sorry, but I stand by that.”

Even though she wouldn’t consider herself ‘skinny’ she’s still happy:

“Even now I don’t consider myself skinny. But I have put a lot of hard work into my body over the years, and in the process, I’ve really learned to love myself.”
