    'Mirror Mirror' star Lily Collins dishes on working with Roberts, her rumored Snow White rivalry with Kristen Stewart, and why every girl has a little bit of a princess inside her.

    As the daughter of rock star Phil Collins, it would be easy to imagine Lily Collins following in her dad's musical footsteps. But in the film Mirror Mirror, out this Friday, it's even easier to see Lily forging a path of her own as the fairest of them all. Having previously appeared alongside Taylor Lautner and Sandra Bullock in such films as Abduction and The Blind Side, the 23-year-old-year actress has traded in the modern-day blockbusters for the swashbuckling past in the latest retelling of the classic fairy tale. As a feisty sword swinger, this Snow White is no fainting violet-it's she who wakes the prince (Armie Hammer) from the spell and not the other way around!

    I recently had the pleasure of chatting with Lily about Mirror Mirror and its

  • Guess Who Lindsay Lohan Might Be Playing on 'Glee?'

    Lindsay Lohan is currently in negotiations to guest star on Glee. Guess who she'll be playing?

    I'm not sure whether this should surprise no one, or whether it should surprise everyone: Guess what? Lindsay Lohan might have just landed a guest spot on Glee! Guess who she's playing? Herself!

    TVLine broke the news first yesterday, reporting that LiLo was in negotiations to guest star in one of Glee's final episodes this season. An insider at Fox revealed to the site that if the deal is sealed, LiLo would be playing herself. In what capacity? As a celebrity judge at Nationals.

    In some ways, this is a little wacky-I do realize that Lindsay attempted a music career once, but I don't recall it being all that successful. This is why I find the idea of her playing herself as a judge at a music competition a wee bit surprising. However, at the same time, guest starring on a scripted show as herself is sort of the logical next step after an

    Pinterest is the fastest growing social network on the web. And why not? Members create photo albums or boards based on interests. Tons of women are planning fantasy weddings, fantasty shopping and generally having a good time playing with photos. So who's the newest pinner?President Barack Obama! One wonders if he's going to be like a ton of Pinners out there--staying up until the wee hours looking for photos of puppies in teacups?

    Actually the board is run by Obama's 2012 campaign staff. According to the Washington Post, there are 8 sub-boards, some of which features recipes, pets and family members. Other sub-boards are devoted to infographics, issues and initiatives.

    Once the photos are pinned, they can be re-pinned by anyone on Pinterest. This morning the President has 4447 followers. At present, his cupcake photo has 6 likes and 10 repins.

  • The Girl on Fire Gets a Doll: Mattel Has a Katniss Everdeen Barbie in the Works

    Watch out, President Snow! 'Hunger Games' mania continues with an army of Katniss Barbie dolls.

    Now that you've stockpiled Jennifer Lawrence-covered magazines and Team Peeta totes, it's time to set your sights on a sure-to-be-coveted collector's item.

    According to the Hollywood Reporter, Mattel's Barbie Collector is in the process of whipping up a Katniss Everdeen doll. And we expect that getting one won't be child's play.

    The collectible will be available on BarbieCollector.com sometime in the near future, though Mattel won't reveal the exact details yet. We understand why they're keeping their plans under wraps, but come on! Even the tributes knew when they were heading into the arena, and from the looks of it, we can totally see shoppers waging war over the last Katniss doll.

    Hunger Games fanatics, may the odds be ever in your favor.

    Socialites, magazine editors and the who's who of the fashion industry trotted to Denver, Colorado this past weekend for the opening gala of Yves Saint Laurent's new exhibition The Retrospective at the Denver Art Museum. The event included attendee's such as Pierre Bergé, the co-founder of Yves Saint Laurent couture house, Florence Müller, the curator of the Yves Saint Laurent exhibition opening, and magazine editors from Vogue and Vanity Fair to name a few.

    The exhibit features outfits, films, sketches and photos from the designer's 40-year career, each carefully chosen by Florence Müller and Pierre Bergé. The duo combed through the 5,000 complete outfits that are kept in the archives and hand selected 200 silhouettes, which will be on display from March 25- July 8th at the Denver Art Museum.

  • Val Kilmer is Unrecognizable as Mark Twain in 'Citizen Twain'

    Wow, Val Kilmer. You're looking a little... Mark Twain-ish there.

    See that picture above? That's Val Kilmer. We all know what he looks like, right? Good.

    See this picture below? This is also Val Kilmer. I don't know about you, Bettys, but my brain just went "WUT":

    To be fair, over the years, Val Kilmer has also looked like this:

    This most recent one, however, is quite possible the most impressive transformation the actor has ever made, probably due to the fact that when most people think "Mark Twain," they probably don't think "Val Kilmer." However, this picture alone proves that it's not only possible, but moreover, that it's actually being done: This week, Val's pet project, a one-man play called Citizen Twain, went into production for a limited run at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery.

    In a recent interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Val revealed his connection to Twain:

  • Racism and 'The Hunger Games': Why Ignorance Won't Prevail

    Shocked by the racist tweets against the black actors of The Hunger Games? You're not alone. Here's what the fans have to say about it.

    -Diana Denza, Bettyconfidential.com

    Katniss and RueKatniss and Rue

    The first time I watched The Hunger Games (and I can assure you, there will be many more times), there wasn't a dry eye in the theater when little Rue was mercilessly slain. The 12-year-old tribute, a symbol of innocence and love in an inherently corrupt world, was arguably one of the most powerful characters in the entire series. In the film, she was played by a black actress, 13-year-old Amandla Stenberg.

    This shouldn't have been remotely surprising as that is exactly how the book's author envisioned her. On page 45 of The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins describes Rue through the eyes of heroine Katniss Everdeen: "She has dark brown skin and eyes, but other than that's she's very like Prim in size and demeanor."

    Similarly, Dayo Okeniyi, a muscular Nigerian immigrant, scored the role of Thresh, the

  • Jennifer Lawrence on Why 'The Hunger Games' Are like the Kardashians

    In an interview with Parade, Jennifer Lawrence compared 'The Hunger Games' to the Kardashians-and she may be right.

    I know, I know: It sounds really weird, but she's actually got a valid and kind of terrifying point. In a recent interview with Parade, Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence answered the question, "Why do you think so many people relate to the books?" as follows:

    "I was watching the Kardashian girl getting divorced, and that's a tragedy for anyone. But they're using it for entertainment, and we're watching it. The books hold up a terrible kind of mirror: This is what our society could be like if we became desensitized to trauma and to each other's pain."

    Jennifer is well-known for her maturity; wise beyond her years, she is thoughtful and smart, both in how she approaches her work and in how she deals with Hollywood. This is especially notable when you remember that she's only 21. And really? As much as it pains
