'Depression and anxiety are really hard to live with': Rene Russo, 60, discusses her bipolar disorder on morning show while looking stunning in white

October 31 [Fri], 2014, 11:43
She has bipolar disorder and is not afraid to discuss it.

On Wednesday actress Rene Russo opened up to Good Morning America about how she deals with it. 'Unfortunately I think depression and anxiety are really hard to live with,' the Nightcrawler star said. 'And what people don't need is to feel bad about themselves because they decide to go on medication.'

The 60-year-old former model stunned in a white blouse and seventies-style flared slacks for her TV appearance.

The strawberry blonde added, 'I know a lot of people are hurting out there and feel ashamed.' She then added she hoped to 'help anyone.'

Russo dropped the news of her bipolar disorder two weeks ago while on the Queen Latifah Show. The beauty surprised everyone present, including co-star Jake Gyllenhaal, as she opened up about her struggle.

'My mom said my whole childhood … was stop and go,' the actress explained about the condition which can see dramatic swings in mood and energy levels.

'I haven't shared this,' she admitted. 'I have friends who don't want to go on medication, and they are suffering.'

The Lethal Weapon actress, who is married to Nightcrawler director Dan Gilroy, confessed told Robin Roberts on GMA on Wednesday that taking pills for her problem doesn't seem like a big deal.

'To me, it was like saying, oh you know, "I take medication for high blood pressure,"' she revealed.

She admitted feeling humble about her decision to seek treatment stating, 'I mean, I would like to take credit for being brave but I don't feel that way about it.'

Rene's new film Nightcrawler is a thriller that follows the story of freelance cameraman Louis Bloom, played by Gyllenhaal.

In the movie she plays Nina Romina, a news producer at a local TV station, whose desperation for ratings inspires her to purchase Bloom's graphic footage.

The project hits theaters on October 31.

'I'll shock the world again!' Nicki Minaj dials back her outrageous style for a more natural look... but keeps the eye-popping cleavage

October 21 [Tue], 2014, 14:16
She is famous for her big wigs and flamboyant outfits on, and off, the stage.

But Nicki Minaj dialed it back in a fashion shoot for GQ Magazine, although she couldn't resist a breast plate-style white top that showed off her impressive cleavage.

The revealing halterneck featured two cones over her breasts and buckled up behind her back.

In one snap the 31-year-old hip-hop princess wore it with a blue pencil skirt and accessorised with two standard poodles, one dyed pink to match her skirt and the other a pretty shade of pink.

In the second shot, the stylists matched it with a bright red pencil skirt that echoed the colour of the wooden rocking horse Nicki stood next to on a balcony overlooking a cityscape.

Gone are the multi-coloured wigs. The star opted for extensions to her black hair while her minimalist (for her) make-up emphasized her eyes with false lashes, liner and mascara.

'I always thought that by the time I put out a third album, I would want to come back to natural hair and natural makeup,' she told GQ, talking about The Pinkprint, due out this month.

'I thought, I will shock the world again and just be more toned down. I thought that would be more shocking than to keep on doing exactly what they had already seen.'

And, despite its very raunchy, jungle-set imagery, Nicki insisted there was no hidden message behind the video for Anaconda, the hit single from The Pinkprint.

'I think the video is about what girls do. Girls love being with other girls, and when you go back to us being younger, we would have slumber parties and we’d be dancing with our friends,' she told GQ, innocently.

The video features Minaj and four girls with impressive derrieres dressed in very little as they twerk.

She added her character 'is just talking about two guys that she dated in the past and what they’re good at and what they bought her and what they said to her. It’s just cheeky, like a funny story.'

However, the celebrity also admitted the video is about control, saying: 'If you want to be flirty and funny that’s fine, but always keep the power and the control in everything.'

Hailey Baldwin shows she's a modelling pro already as she makes a near wardrobe malfunction pose worthy during a sexy photo shoot

October 16 [Thu], 2014, 16:53
She has not been a model for long, but Hailey Baldwin has got the job down pat.

The 17-year-old was put through her posing paces in New York on Wednesday for a streetscape shoot.

The daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin showed exactly why she is signed to one of the world's biggest agencies, Ford Models, as she even made a wardrobe malfunction look good.

For her main outfit of the day, the teen donned a pair of cropped tailored gold pants with a matching jacket that featured a black lapel for contrast.

Making the look both sexy and stylish, the style star wore no shirt underneath so that Hailey could flaunt the current fashion favourite, no cleavage cleavage.

However, during one shot - which required her to walk towards the camera - Hailey almost showed off more of her cleavage than she bargained for, with the jacket sliding to the side.

However, just like an experienced professional, she took the problem in her stride holding her hands quickly up across her chest and still managing to pose perfectly while doing so.

The model - who wore black pumps with the gold look - had a few more poses in her so lent up against a wall and pouted away at the camera.

Hailey - whose cousin is Ireland Baldwin - then made a quick change into a second look.

This time around, the 17-year-old donned a white skirt and matching cropped top that featured delicate embellishment and strands of sequins cascading from them.

She paired the ensemble with a long white trench coat and a pair of strappy silver shoes.

Hailey clearly very much enjoys being a model as, while most people are far from excited when they head into work, the teen could not wait.

Posting on her Twitter she wrote 'Work time' with an emoji of a fist, which stands for a fist bump, and a camera.

Jessica Alba on risking her acting career for an eco product line - and how she turned it into a billion-dollar lifestyle empire

October 14 [Tue], 2014, 12:52

Jessica Alba says it was Eleanor Roosevelt's drive that inspired her to work through the toughest challenges - seeking investment and failed business plans - while founding her lifestyle company, Honest.

'She didn't give up―she tried again. That's what I did until it finally made it,' she says in the new issue of Harper's Bazaar, which counts the actress as one of its most daring women.

But Ms Alba, now 33, was no ordinary start-up boss. As one of Hollywood's most successful actresses, selling a line of eco-friendly cleaning products seemed an unlikely career diversion to the outside world.

'The most daring thing I ever did was take a step back from my acting career and start this company,' she said of making that choice some three years ago.

'[Roosevelt] taught me that one person can make real change, that an individual has limitless power, and that if you have a will there's a way.'

And her perseverance, along with co-founders Christopher Gavigan and Brian Lee, has paid off: the Honest Company now employs over 300 people and is on track to becoming a billion-dollar empire.

But on the subject of daring, the focus of the Bazaar article, Ms Alba says that as an actress, even becoming pregnant after marrying husband Cash Warren felt, to her, like a risk.

'Even becoming a mother was risky,' she said. 'It meant cooling off from this business, which was all I had known my entire life.'

Of course, now a mother-of-two (to Honor, six, and Haven, three) her acting career is not behind her as she had feared. Ms Alba most recently starred in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, and has no less than five more movies to be released in the coming months.

But she believes it is Honest that has made her 'more daring as a woman.'

'I've set my priorities in a different place, with my children and my family. I dared to look at projects outside of Hollywood, and I'm so happy that I did.'

Harper's Bazaar's November issue celebrates women who dare, celebrating the trailblazers that are pushing the world forward this year. The feature also spotlights Christy Turlington Burns, Debbie Harry. Mo’Ne Davis, Kirsten Gillibrand, Uzo Aduba, and Chloe Sevigny.

'I don't put up with bullsh*t or nasty people': Grey's Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes lays into Katherine Heigl in new interview

October 11 [Sat], 2014, 14:08
She has been blasted for her 'difficult' reputation - stemming from her abrupt exit of Grey's Anatomy after five years on the show to become a major movie star. And it seems the show's creator Shonda Rhimes has nothing good to say when it comes to the subject of Katherine Heigl.

Remarking of overseeing a well-oiled machine of stars on her current hit shows, the 44-year-old executive producer recently told The Hollywood Reporter: 'There are no Heigls in this situation.' 'I don't put up with bullsh*t or nasty people. I don't have time for it,' Shonda said, appearing to reference the drama surround Katherine's exit - and added she has no time for 'a**holes'.

Though Katherine nabbed an Emmy for her portrayal of Dr. Izzie Stevens in 2007, the actress' history with the medical series was marked by some drama.

In 2008 Katherine famously said after withdrawing her Grey's Anatomy role from an Emmy consideration: 'I did not feel that I was given the material this season to warrant an Emmy nomination and in an effort to maintain the integrity of the academy organization, I withdrew my name from contention.'

Just two years later the actress departed the show after speculation about the future of her character. Meanwhile, Shonda has spoken out about some people being unable to separate her race and gender when it comes to the discussion of her sky-rocketing career.

The Hollywood powerhouse remarked upon seeing her name listed as 'the most powerful black female showrunner in Hollywood' for an event, saying: 'They wouldn't say that someone is "the most powerful white male showrunner in Hollywood.'"

'I find race and gender to be terribly important; they're terribly important to who I am. But there's something about the need for everybody else to spend time talking about it … that p***es me off,' She added to the publication.

Earlier in September, a New York Times profile of Shonda ignited controversy when it referred to a hypothetical memoir the executive producer may pen as 'How To Get Away With Being An Angry Black Woman', among other comments.

Shonda said the day of the article's release on Twitter: 'Wait. I'm" angry" AND a ROMANCE WRITER?!! I'm going to need to put down the internet and go dance this one out. Because ish is getting real.'

Though it isn't only her race that Shonda has reckoned with in the media, for the mother-of-two has fielded questions her male counterparts are simply not asked. 'The question drives me nuts... What does Chuck Lorre say when you ask him about work?life balance?' Shonda said, referencing the creator of The Big Bang Theory, who also has a family.

Questions aside, Shonda has crafted a devouted audience with sky-high ratings to boot that reflect her formula for compelling television. The executive producer opened up about nurturing the careers of her her top-notch and loyal team of writers.

'Most writing staffs have this crazy high turnover, and then everyone's really miserable, and I don't understand that...I don't know why you don't grow people to then be able to take over as you. That's how I can have more shows,' the executive producer explained.

Writer Peter Nowalk, for example, has worked on shows Grey's Anatomy, Scandal, and even created the Shonda-executive produced series, How To Get Away With Murder.

Meanwhile, Shonda's rise to success has not been completely seamless. Shonda recalled a time in the early days of Grey's Anatomy when she conceived of a scene that drew the ire of the show's executives.

The moment in question saw two characters wager how fast they could deliver bad news to their patients. Her latest hit: How To Get Away With Murder stars Oscar nominee Viola Davis as a defense attorney who teaches an eager class of law students

When ABC got wind of the scene, Shonda remembered hearing: 'I think the term that was used to describe me to my face was, 'If you think you're funny, you're sick.'" Fans of Shonda can catch her compelling dramas on ABC.

How To Get Away With Murder opened with strong ratings, and stars Oscar-nominee Viola Davis as a defense attorney who also teaches eager law students. Scandal has undoubtedly skyrocketed the career of Kerry Washington, and the political thriller saw it's fourth season debut in late September.

Meanwhile, Grey's Anatomy has launched the careers of Katherine Heigl and Ellen Pompeo, and has spawned the spin-off Private Practice.

'Come off it, Keira! Lucky women like us owe everything to our looks' As Miss Knightley laments the fact that she misses out on roles because she is too pretty, one writer says she should be grateful

October 09 [Thu], 2014, 13:51
There are certain events in my life that I know never would have happened if I’d been born ugly. Real life-changing events to which I entirely owe my looks.

I am not being conceited or boastful; it’s a simple fact that had I not been quite so lucky in the great DNA lottery many doors would have remained shut to me.

The first example is winning my first column on a newspaper in 2003 ― which in turn led to my first book. ‘We have to give her a column,’ said the editor to his section head after our meeting. ‘She’s so pretty.’

This proclamation was given to the team out of my earshot, I should say, but relayed to me by one of them over lunch afterwards. It left me torn between being offended that I didn’t get the job because of my ability to write and thrilled to have a column. But in the cut-throat world of journalism there is no room for the feminist moral high ground. A column is a column, whatever it takes to get it.

I should think acting is even more competitive. So I was rather surprised to read recently that Keira Knightley laments the fact that she misses out on roles because she is too pretty. I would wager she has won many more roles than she’s lost due to her good looks.

And would you rather be cast as Beauty or the Beast? Do you hear George Clooney moaning about the fact that he could have become an accountant if he hadn’t been so darned handsome?

I am not doing a Samantha Brick. She famously triggered a storm of abuse in April 2012 for saying how gorgeous she was, and that other women hated her because she was so beautiful.

I don’t think I’m so stunning other women loathe me en masse. And I’m not so pleased with myself that every time I look in the mirror I think ‘yippee’.

Quite the contrary. I used to loathe the way I looked. My legs were so thin when I was a teenager I used to wear two pairs of trousers to make them look more shapely. I was so flat-chested I was nick-named ‘the plank’. But now I am thankful for those legs and, at least, I don’t have droopy boobs.

At 45, I see good bone structure and skin that has only a sprinkling of fine lines thanks to rigorous application of suncream. My figure has remained the size it was at university thanks to yoga and tennis and a disciplined attitude to food, and I still have a head of thick dark hair, though that I owe to my mother.

When I look in the mirror, I see a woman who has aged relatively well, in part due to the effort I’ve put into staying fit and healthy.

One of the things my chic Italian aunt taught me was that taking care of your appearance is good manners and shows respect for those around you, as opposed to something to be ashamed of, which is the usual attitude in Britain.

Here, the prevailing view is that if you spend time on yourself, you’re vain and superficial. Vain and superficial? Possibly. But also smart. Because good looks work and anyone who tries to tell you otherwise is lying.

Keira’s argument is that she wants to be treated as a serious actress and not a sex symbol. Which is fair enough. But I don’t agree with her that beauty and gravitas are mutually exclusive. She is a great example of a woman who has achieved both.

On the whole, you’re better off being nice-looking than not. I think Keira is being disingenuous if she says the disadvantages outweigh the advantages.

I can’t see how good looks are in any way a barrier to a career. They’re rarely a barrier to anything as far as I can tell. I probably wouldn’t have a driving licence if I hadn’t worn a mini-skirt to my test. Yes, you read that correctly.

I was at Durham University. I had failed my test five times. Finally, a friend said he would buy me an intensive driving course, two lessons a day for a week in Harrogate at the end of which I would take my test. My test was a disaster. I rolled backwards on the hill start and went the wrong way down a one-way street, almost crashing the car in the process.

At the end, we pulled over and I prepared myself for the usual ‘I’m sorry to say Miss Frith Powell, you have failed.’ Incredibly the dour Yorkshire-man next to me told me I had passed. ‘Really?’ I exclaimed. ‘Well,’ he said, glancing at my legs. ‘Only just.’

My husband only hired me because he thought I was pretty. We met when he interviewed me for a job on Trade Finance magazine. I knew less than nothing about trade finance, but I got the job. Years later, he admitted his hiring policy. ‘Interviews are such a lottery,’ he told me. ‘So you may as well hire the pretty one.’ I am not saying that looks alone will keep you in a job (I did eventually get fired from that magazine, thank God. I was hopeless at it, a stark fact no number of charming smiles could disguise) but they will present you with opportunities to get in the door, spoken to and remembered.

I suspect Keira might have got her first role in Pirates Of The Caribbean in part because she is such a stunner, but they wouldn’t have cast her again and again if she’d been useless. Her looks will undoubtedly have opened doors for her in the industry, but her talent has kept them open.

My daughters are now 13 and 15. I, of course, think they are stunning. ‘Have you any idea what an advantage you have already, before you’ve even said or done anything at all?’ I keep telling them.

It may be unfair and it may not be right, but the truth is that if you walk into a situation as a pretty girl, 9.9 times out of ten, your looks will work in your favour. According to a study carried out by the University of Luneburg, Germany, in 2011, good looks are the single most important factor for a successful career. The study found that being beautiful is as important as having a degree.

Beautiful women ― and men ― will come up against some people (usually ugly ones) who discriminate against them because they don’t want nice-looking people around them. But on the whole, if you look good, you’re going to be more successful in life.

For living proof that good looks help your job prospects, you only have to compare the careers of Paul Scholes and David Beckham.

Both were very talented football players. In fact, some say Scholes was the more talented of the two. But only one of them looked good in underwear. I predict that Scholes could wander down the King’s Road unmolested (even in his underwear) and no one would give him a second glance. Becks would be mobbed before he took his jacket off.

Daniel Hamermesh the U.S. economist has coined the term the ‘beauty premium’, which means that attractive CEOs benefit their companies in various ways. For example, the share price rises when they have made a television appearance. Of course, especially for women, looks can determine what paths our lives take.

As the writer Nora Ephron once said: ‘I honestly believe that if I’d had bigger breasts my life would have been different.’ Though it’s fair to say her achievements as a writer and director hardly make her one of life’s under-achievers.

Maybe the point Keira is trying to get across is that if you look like Marilyn Monroe you are unlikely to become a tax inspector. Or even get to play one in a film.

Some women do rebel against their lot. For example, Brigitte Bardot, who was once the most beautiful woman in the world, decided to give up on looking after herself and look after donkeys instead. And then she ended up looking like one.

I guess if Keira is seriously disgruntled about being too pretty she could follow Brigitte’s lead and opt out.

But, somehow, I doubt she will. Because being beautiful is not something any woman will give up on easily. There are too many advantages to be gained.

Kendall Jenner goes makeup-free in jeans and trainers after dominating the fashion week circuit

October 06 [Mon], 2014, 21:00
After spending a hectic month jetting around the globe between fashion shows, Kendall Jenner in finally enjoying some downtime.

And the 18-year-old model obviously relished the chance to ditch the high fashion as she went make-up free for a casual Manhattan morning on Sunday.

She was seen strolling around New York completely fresh-faced, keeping warm in the chilly weather with a puffy gray jacket, dark cigarette-style jeans, a gray tank top, gray knit beanie and bright orange trainers.

After modeling for Chanel, Marc Jacobs, Sonia Rykiel, Givenchy, Balmain, Dolce & Gabbana, Bottega Veneta, Pucci, Diane von Furstenberg, Fendi, Tommy Hilfiger, Donna Karan, Kendall appears to have had an extremely successful season.

So successful, she may have landed herself one of the biggest modelling contracts in the world.

According to In Touch, she is being considered by Victoria's Secret to become their next Angel - a highly coveted position.

VS is preparing for its big annual lingerie show, and a source told the publication that the young reality star is being seriously considered.

'They saw all the buzz she got from walking in New York Fashion Week,' the insider explained.

'They’d love to lock in a contract with her.'

The source went on to claim that Kendall is keen on the deal, 'Kendall once said her biggest dream was to be an Angel.'

The deal may not go through, the publication reports if Kendall's mother Kris Jenner asks for too much money in the initial negotiations.

Interestingly, the teenager's career was given a boost after Kendall met with famous Victoria's Secret photographer Russell James.

If Kendall does get the deal she'll be joining the ranks of some of the biggest supermodels in the world.

Current Angels include: Alessandra Ambrosio, Candice Swanepoel, Karolina Kurkova, and Adriana Lima.

Queen Letizia is as polished as ever in purple as she joins husband King Felipe at opening of Castilla-La Mancha University

October 01 [Wed], 2014, 16:07
Queen Letizia never fails to impress in the style stakes and today, when she and King Felipe VI of Spain attended the opening of the 2014-2015 year at Castilla-La Mancha University, was no different.

Looking classy and chic in a deep purple dress, Spain's Queen Letizia was every inch the royal style icon as she arrived with her husband.

She accessorised her flattering layered dress with dusty pink court shoes and a matching clutch.

The 42-year-old had her hair in its signature loose and bouncy style and wore drop earrings.

It's been a busy few weeks for the Spanish royal, who joined the Netherland's glamorous Queen Maxima in New York for the 69th session of the UN General Assembly, which included a debate in which both King Felipe and King Willem-Alexander spoke.

With no speech of their own to make, the two sat together and chatted as they waited for proceedings to begin and, at one point, burst into laughter.

It was all a far cry from the serious business this time last week, when the Spanish Queen and her husband spent the day meeting scientists living and working in New York.

Letizia has become increasingly popular since ascending to the throne in June, making regular appearances in support of children's and disability charities, as well as on the arm of husband King Felipe, 46.

Most recently, Letizia found herself on the receiving end of a slew of positive headlines after stopping to greet a wheelchair-bound well-wisher who had travelled to the Spanish city of San Sebastien to meet her.

Her hair whipping around her shoulders, Letizia ignored the unseasonably miserable weather as she bent down to chat to the elderly lady.

The engagement, which took place days before she and King Felipe travelled to New York, was part of an unusually intense September schedule which looks set to be replicated over the coming month.
