The Mag I Bought This Week Award goes to …
The weekly magazines are scrabbling over Jennifer Aniston’s engagement like my chooks with a corn cob – everyone wants a piece. Sadly – like that poor Aussie swimmer Emily Seebohm, who sobbed because she won silver instead of gold at the Olympics – I don’t think Jen marrying Justin Theroux will be “gold!” for magazines. In fact, it’s not even silver, more like bronze.
That doesn’t mean I wasn’t enticed to buy something … click over to Village Voices to discover which magazine I chose …
Tom & Katie’s PR war
Tom Cruise has bristled at suggestions he stopped Suri meeting Katie Holmes‘ side of the family when they were married, after reports that Katie and Suri’s recent trip to Toledo, Ohio, was their first.
People magazine quotes “a source” who insists: ”Katie visited Ohio with Suri many times.”
“To say Tom prevented anything is a gross lie. He not only didn’t prevent [Suri having a relationship with Holmes' family] but encouraged it and paid for it!” the source explains. “The first several birthday parties Katie and Tom threw for Suri had the family and cousins come to town – all expenses were paid for by Tom.”
Shia’s girlfriend distraught about his raunchy new role?
As reported last week, Shia LaBeouf has signed to star in Lars Von Trier’s new movie, Nymphomania. And he’s told MTV News he’ll be having actual sex on the set: ”[The movie] is what you think it is. It is Lars von Trier, making a movie about what he’s making. For instance, there’s a disclaimer at the top of The Script that basically says we’re doing it For Real. Everything that is illegal, we’ll shoot in blurred images. Other than that, everything is happening.”
DListed is horrified: “Nymphomaniac isn’t a biopic about Gerard Butler. It’s some fancy two-part art shit that follows a woman’s sex life from her young years all the way up to her horny old ho years. Charlotte Gainsbourg plays the woman and the movie also stars Shia, Nicole Kidman, Willem Dafoe and Stellan Skarsgård. I’m looking at the words ”real sex” and then at the cast list and all I can type is: NOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOO OOOO OOO OO OOOOOO!!!! This is Lars Von Trier we’re talking about, so it’s not going to be some hot sex times either. It’s going to be some depraved, disturbing shit. It’s going to make you skip the shower and go directly to your garage where your water tank is. This is why water tanks should have lids. So you can just jump inside and fully submerge the sucio images in your brain.”
Oh No They Didn’t has pics of Shia and his girlfriend fighting – which X17 speculates might be because she’s not happy about the actual sex for a movie role thing – and says: “Shia’s history of being whack is long. I remember: him yelling at Carey Mulligan and trying to get with other girls at An Education’s premiere, rumors he used to get into physical fights with his ex, that thing where he told everyone he f@#ked Megan Fox, the time he got arrested for being a mess at a Walmart Walgreens, that thing where he drunk drove and almost died, the way he is rude as hell to fans, everything he’s ever said… did I miss anything?”
I didn’t fancy him before, now … eeeeewwww …
Taylor is Wonderstruck
“Wonderstruck is about that moment when you instantly feel a connection to someone, but then there’s that feeling of being completely enamored — enchanted,” Taylor Swift says of her new perfume.
And it sounds like that’s exactly how she’s feeling about her new boyfriend, Conor Kennedy. Taylor has been snapped holding hands with her toyboy (she’s also wearing one of those weird, new high-pants bikinis), see them holding hands here. And kissing here.
