FIRST LOOK! Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe in ‘My Week With Marilyn’

Michelle Williams transforms herself into Marilyn Monroe in the upcoming film, ‘My Week With Marilyn’ and the resemblance to the Hollywood icon is uncanny!

The new shot shows Michelle’s amazing transformation as the silver screen legend in a beautiful still from the film, which shows her in colour walking through a scrum of paparazzi photographers all shot in black and white.

Michelle’s peroxide blonde curls are pure Marilyn, as is the sex bomb hourglass figure seen underneath a pale lilac shift dress, and the actress has Marilyn’s famous flirty pout spot on.

The British film, which hits cinema screens in November, is based on the book of the same name by Colin Clark who worked as an assistant on the set of the 1957 movie, The Prince and the Showgirl, which Marilyn shot in England while on honeymoon with playwright Arthur Miller.

The film, which also stars Emma Watson, Dominic Cooper and Eddie Redmayne, follows the story of Clark’s week with Monroe as he chaperoned her around the UK after her new husband left the country on business.

The eagerly-anticipated flick will premiere at this year’s New York Film Festival, which kicks off on 30th September.

Love it!

Salma Hayek opens up about all things beauty in the new Allure Magazine!

Salma Hayek is Allure Magazine’s September cover girl. The actress opens up about all things beauty, including her skin, her bust and her beauty line. She also opens up about the awkwardness of filming love scenes and being bullied as a child.

Read on!

Salma on her skin: Hayek has worked for her astonishingly young-looking skin. “My career has given me a lot of experience to be under pressure of having to be beautiful, and having to look for tricks to make it work,” says the actress.

She‘s all natural: Hayek believes in fighting aging—up to a point. “I believe that every woman is entitled to fight to preserve her youth,” she says. But not by becoming overly surgified by celebrity dermatologists. “It’s like the uniform of a generation,” Hayek says. “And it’s not necessarily beautiful. It’s not wrinkled-looking, but it’s not beautiful. I’ve never had anything done on my face,” Hayek insists. “I’ve never had dermabrasion or peels or injections of any kind, nothing.”

Salma on her boobs: Ask Hayek whether any part of her body looked better ten years ago, and she’ll tell you. “My boobs,” she says with a laugh. “They’re not bad, by the way. I’m not complaining about them.” She famously breast-fed a hungry infant in Sierra Leone, where she was promoting a UNICEF initiative to eradicate tetanus. “If you have milk, you have milk, and if they’re hungry, they’re hungry,” she says. “I think it’s a beautiful thing, because motherhood is a very strong place for women to connect and understand each other.”

Confidence: “As a woman, you should be more at ease with your sexuality when you are in your 40s,” she says. “You are more self-assured about that part. And that’s the way it should be. If you are a girl who cannot walk in heels, it doesn’t matter how beautiful you are,” she says. “If you look like a chicken that’s been spiked in the feet, it’s not going to be sexy.”

Bullied at an early age: “I got teased because I was too short, or I was too brown,” she says. (Her complexion is the legacy of her father, a businessman of Lebanese descent.) “You would think in Mexico that would be something normal, but I did get teased,” she says.

Filming love scenes: Hayek first became known in America with Desperado, an action movie starring Antonio Banderas. A love scene between them took eight hours to film rather than the scheduled one hour because of Hayek’s reluctance. “I’m not an exhibitionist,” she says. “It was the first time, so it was very difficult.”

Hayek on her daughter, being rich: Hayek says of her daughter, who speaks English, Spanish, and French: “I never understood the point of being privileged if you don’t get to have the privileges. Like, people who won’t take their kids to an expensive restaurant, or won’t travel with them, or make them pay for everything at a really young age. I think it’s important that kids have responsibilities and understand the value of things, but I think it’s great that my daughter gets to travel the world.”

On her beauty line: Hayek’s beauty line is in many ways a tribute to her grandmother, who studied to be a beautician and made potions for government officials and their wives. “She started working on my skin when I was 12 or 13,” Hayek says. “I never used soap on my face. Once, she shaved our heads and put egg on it and all these things. But I have to give her credit—my hair is great.” Hayek believes that it’s possible to offer beauty products that will encourage women’s strengths rather than make them anxious about their weaknesses. “I’m [creating this line] with the philosophy that within you there is beauty, and you have to learn how to find it and enhance it in a natural way…. One thing that is exciting about being a woman is that you can rediscover your beauty over and over and over.”

Jennifer Love Hewitt steps out with new hair!

Jennifer Love Hewitt stepped out yesterday afternoon with a new haircut! She also Tweeted the above picture and wrote “New dark hair and new cut! Fun right?” before hitting up Madison boutique in West Hollywood where she shopped the afternoon away.

While showing off her new ‘do, she showed off her curves in a see-through skirt.

The curvy brunette recently made headlines for going on a date with Bachelorette contestant Ben Flajnik.

“She began pursuing him right after the finale aired,” a source tells Us Weekly of the Can’t Hardly Wait actress, 32.

Indeed, Hewitt hasn’t been shy about showing her love for the 28-year-old winemaker, who placed second behind JP Rosenbaum on The Bachelorette’s August 1 finale. “Omg! Ben f except my final rose!!! Gotta book a flight to Sonoma !!!:):)” Hewitt tweeted August 2. And when the pair cozied up at San Francisco’s Lion’s Pub four days later, the actress was similarly smitten.

Though Flajnik initially stopped by the bar with San Francisco Giants player Cody Ross, he made a beeline for Hewitt after spotting her from across the room.

“It seemed like a first date, but he wasn’t overly affectionate,” an eyewitness tells Us. “Loving the attention,” Hewitt tended to fans at the bar during her date, but had all eyes on Flajnik by night’s end. “As the bar started to close she grabbed his hand and marched outside,” confirms the source.

What do you think of her new hair?
