  • Chris Hemsworth Has Two New Babies!

    Richard Lawson

    Chris HemsworthChris HemsworthChris Hemsworth now has three children. He has a daughter, India, and his wife is just now finishing up being pregnant. So you might be asking, "Wait, so where did the third one come from? Did he find a baby on the side of the road like some sort of gypsy?" But no, Chris Hemsworth is not some gypsy who finds babies on the side of the road.

    He had twins! Or rather his wife had twins. Is having twins? TMZ says she's in labor at the moment, but they said that a few hours ago, so she might be done. The point is, Chris Hemsworth and his wife are soon going to be three babies strong, which is exciting. Exciting for them, sure, but mostly for us. I mean, have you seen the photos of Chris Hemsworth cradling his daughter in his massive arms? To call the experience of seeing those photos "erotic" sort of doesn't do them justice.

  • Kate Winslet Calls Leonardo DiCaprio "The Love of My Life"

    Joanna Robinson

    All you secret Kate and Leo lovers, it's O.K. You can stop hiding. Crank up the Celine Dion and drape yourself on the nearest divan. While promoting her newest film, Kate Winslet was asked whether she preferred her Divergent star Theo James or her BFF Leonardo DiCaprio. She replied, "Leo is my love of my life. How could you possibly ask me that question?" Indeed, how dare they impugn the love that, like our hearts, has been going on since Winslet and DiCaprio met on the set of Titanic back in 1996. The two have shared a lovely friendship ever since, but there are those of us who harbor a different wish. Here are 11 reasons why we'll never let go.

  • The Next Jennifer Lawrence? Shailene Woodley and Six Others Who Could Take Her Throne

    Joanna Robinson

    It's impossible to nail down exactly why Jennifer Lawrence is as popular as she is. How did someone so young manage to become both Internet catnip and an old-school Hollywood darling? She's undeniably talented and unquestionably beautiful, but there are thousands of equally talented and equally beautiful starlets who have come before her without even touching Lawrence's level of success. Likely, her seemingly unaffected and goofily charming demeanor in interviews and on the red carpet have gone a long way toward winning America's heart. Is there anyone who can follow that act? Any up-and-comer who can hit all the Lawrence highlights? Here are a few potential performers waiting in the wings. They each possess at least one of the hallmark Lawrence-ian qualities. But will that be enough to take her down? We shall see.

  • Is Normcore Really a Thing?

    Normcore at its finest: Barack Obama, Steve JobsNormcore at its finest: Barack Obama, Steve Jobs

    When you think of the 1994 one-season wonder that was
    My So-Called Life, you probably conjure up images of Angela Chase's dye job, Rayanne Graff's shredded denim, and all that was Jordan Catalano, in his flannel-shirted, sherpa-lined, greasy-haired glory. These characters embodied the grunge look, almost as much as Kurt and Courtney did, with their Doc Martens and baby-doll dresses, and everything they stood for (or at least stood in) has popped up in fashion over the last few years-think Birkenstocks at Céline, overalls on Miroslava Duma.

    But another so-called (sorry) fashion movement can also be traced back to the show's characters. Normcore, christened by New York magazine and consecrated in an inevitable HuffPost Live segment, is the idea of embracing sameness as a way of being cool. But to us, it recalls nothing more than Angela's parents, Patty and Graham Chase, with their

  • Did Prince Harry Almost Die in the Arctic?

    Prince HarryPrince HarryWe have had only positive feelings about Prince Harry's month-long Antarctic trek as it was the impetus for the Majestic Beard that single-handedly helped us get through the cold winter. (Oh, and it also brought about this nude Alexander Skarsgard picture-seriously, who would have thought a journey to the South Pole would provide so many desktop background options?)

    The trip did not go exactly as planned, as the competition aspect of the expedition was cancelled midway through due to inclement weather. And now, in an advance clip of an ITV documentary set to air Sunday night, it appears Prince Harry had a quite serious bout of altitude sickness during the trek. Yes, while he may have looked like a red-haired Jon Snow in the pictures and video clips we were privy to back in November, this footage paints a very different picture. Harry is seen groaning, in visible pain due to a headache, telling a medic, "It feels as though it's expanding. It's getting worse and worse." He

  • Prince Harry Used to Drunk-Dial Chelsy Davy

    Chelsy and Harry in 2008.Chelsy and Harry in 2008.The Phone-Hacking Trial That Will Outlive Us All spares no one. It does not care who you are or how you've reformed or what your intentions may have been-it will lay you out to dry regardless.

    Yesterday, the focus of the proceedings turned to the Cinnamon Prince himself-who is currently in the midst of something of an image rehabilitation effort, now painted as a doting, mature boyfriend. An e-mail written by former News of the World royal reporter Clive Goodman in March 2006 was read to the court, in which Goodman revealed that Harry would drunk-dial girlfriend-at-the-time Chelsy Davy. "She gets calls from him and he's completely not in a good condition . . . piss ups," the e-mail read. Harry would also, per Goodman's missive, "shout affections to [Davy] down the phone."

  • Kanye West Going to Anger-Management

    The world of Kimye moves at such a fast clip that we'd basically forgotten about the charges Kanye West faced for misdemeanor counts of battery, and grand theft after an alleged scuffle with a photographer at LAX. The skirmish took place in July, back before Kim and Kanye got engaged in a baseball stadium or any Jimmy Kimmel-related Twitter pontificating. The photographer claimed West had punched him, unprovoked, and "wrestled his camera to the ground."

    West did not appear in court yesterday, but his attorney entered a plea of no contest, while maintaining that his client was innocent. As a result of the plea, however, West was sentenced to two years of probation, 24 anger-management therapy sessions, and 240 hours of community service, per Reuters. You just know, in their Hidden Hills manse, Kris Jenner finished her glass of white wine, turned to Kim, and asked, "So I think I know the answer to this, but . . .

  • George Clooney Took His New Girlfriend on a Tanzanian Safari

    Imagine for a second that you're George Clooney. First off, you'd presumably spend anywhere from one to a thousand minutes stationed in front of a mirror, just gazing at your own visage in disbelief. But then, once you'd "gotten used to it," and started going about your daily life and dating people and such, you'd probably realize that, as George Clooney, you could get away with exerting very little effort. George Clooney could probably take a date to the garbage dump, and she'd still tell her friends later it was the best date she'd ever had ("That twinkle in his eye as he laughed beside the giant trash heap changed my life forever.").

    Yet-in spite of this giant head start, as it were, when it comes to dating-Clooney has been pulling out all the stops in romancing rumored new girlfriend Amal Alamuddin.

  • Prince William, Kate Middleton: One Child is “Enough at the Moment”

    Prince William and Kate MiddletonPrince William and Kate MiddletonIt would appear that TMZ has some competition, as the Irish Guards Brigade has proven itself so tenacious and committed to excavating gossip that Rita Skeeter would no doubt be awestruck. Monday, Prince William and Kate Middleton appeared, as they have in years past, at the St. Patrick's Day parade held at Mons Barracks in Aldershot, England. As ever, Kate's well-constructed outfit upstaged pretty much everything else going on, and it would seem that while everyone else was distracted by Kate's fancy green coat and shiny brooch . . . a bunch of Irish Guards used the opportunity to grill William about George and his plans with Kate.

    And these guys managed to score some serious dirt!

    Today though, Australian Vogue presents us with a new way in which to sartorially catalog this year's Oscar winners and nominees-by the cost of their look, dress and jewels included. So who does Vogue estimate was wearing the most expensive look on Oscar night?

    Best actress Cate Blanchett, whose Armani Privé gown ($100,000) and Chopard jewelry (including earrings with 62 opals, a diamond bracelet, and ring) totaled an estimated $18 million. Her runner-up was former Oscar winner Charlize Theron, whose Christian Dior haute couture ($90,000) and Harry Winston jewel totaled $15.89 million.
