Kristen Stewart Covers Vanity Fair

I have to say this has to be Kristen Stewart's most elegant looking cover. I personally fancy her ElleUK cover shot from back in 2010 but Vanity Fair does come close.

The shoot screams couture and having Paris as the backdrop just adds more beauty to the entire layout. Photographed by Mario Testino, you can see Stewart in various styles of dress that have nothing to do with jeans, t-shirts, or Chucks (here real life preference of attire).

The magazine even managed to garner a quote or two from Stewart's real life boyfriend and Twilight co-star, Robert Pattinson. Pattinson goes on the defense, telling VF that with all the pictures that are taken of a smiling Kristen, the shot of her not smiling will be the one singled out.

And he's right. I can go on how many blogs and thumb through pages in a magazine and people talk about how Stewart isn't smiling or doesn't look happy. Hey, she smiles. And giggles. Look a little closer, peeps.

Vanity Fair hits newsstands nationwide on June 12, but certain cities have gotten their hands on copies already.

The real question is....when will Rob and Kristen grace us with another cover? Their Harpers Bazaar back in 2009 was the magazine's best selling issue that year. They should end the Twilight Saga series (the last installment, Breaking Dawn Part II is out in November) with a good 'ole spread.

2012 MTV Movie Awards - They Were There Because...

Okay, so there was Emma Stone, Christan Bale, Mark Wahlberg, Andrew Garfield, Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender, Mila Kunis, Chris Hemsworth, Channing Tatum and more movie stars gracing our television screens last night @ the MTV Movie Awards.

Then there were the "celebrities" that showed up and kinda made you scratch your head.

Like this guy --------------->

Jean Claude Van Damme? Last thing I saw him in was eons ago when he made a cameo appearance on "Friends!"

He may have a film coming out, who knows, I didn't bother inquiring.

Speaking of "Friends", Jennifer Aniston was there to collect her award for Best OnScreen Dirtbag for her role on Horrible Bosses. She clearly didn't stay for the show as her award was given out first. There was no mingling with other celebrities and she wasn't shown on camera @ any time after.
Julianne Hough showed up in midriff and posed on the red carpet. She didn't present or anything. Just came to show her face since Rock of Ages is coming out. I wonder if she thought that helped with movie goers. I don't think so and just wish that she'd go back to Dancing With The Stars. She ruled over there.

Of course Paris Hilton showed up because a party is a party!

And then this guy! JC Chasez! He has a really good voice, too. A shame it didn't work out going solo.
What was more entertainng was the backstage and patio footage MTV had going on. There were cameras set up in back and you were able to see some of the stars chilling out and conversing with one another. Charlize Theron was backstage practically the entire time. She was seen chopping it up with Prometheus co-star, Michael Fassbender and her Snow White & The Huntsman chums, Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth. Jodie Foster came @ the end to present the Best Movie, which of course went to The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn. It was funny to see Emma Stone & Andrew Garfield holding hands and then realize there was a camera right behind them on the patio.They slyly detached fingers but kept in close proximity. I hope MTV does the same next year with that. And boo to the fact the there was no opening movie montage or skit.

Pop Up Snow White & The Huntsman

So I went to check out the Pop Up Showcase featuring Snow White & The Huntsman yesterday afternoon. And it was pretty cool. There were some concept art and various prints that were hung up for viewing, as well as the costumes of Snow White & The Huntsman (played by Kristen Stewart & Chris Hemsworth)!

What's also great is that you are given the opportunity to design your very own SWATH T-shirt @ no charge. You can pick one up for yourself and a friend or two or three ;)

Below are just some of the pieces of concept art that are being displayed.

The Pop Up Store has been open every Saturday and Sunday for the last three weekends. Today is actually the last day and they're open from 11am - 4pm. They're located @ 7710 Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood. If you're in the area, maybe you can swing by and take a look and grab yourself a free shirt. You can slip it on and then catch a showing of Snow White & The Huntsman, which opened @ #1 this weekend @ the box office. Then later on tonight, you can see the SWATH stars @ the MTV Movie Awards, which starts @ 9:00pm. Stewart and Hemsworth will be presenting as well as co-star Charlize Theron (though she will be there to represent her other movie, Prometheus with Michael Fassbender).

Facts of Life's "Natalie Green".....and Brangelina?

"Watch What Happens Live" with Andy Cohen on Bravo is quite entertaining.

Two of Cohen's guests on Thursday's show were Mindy Cohn and Kim Fields. Cohn and Fields starred together on the 80's sitcom, "Facts of Life." Before I go on, I have to say that show was probably one of my most favorite programs EVER! Wednesday nights, baby!

They discussed certain topics, such as George Clooney's recurring role and which charcter lost their virginity first (it was Cohn's charcter, Natalie). But what I found fascinating was there has been this long standing rumor that Mindy Cohn is very good friends with none other than celebrity couple, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie! WHOA! I have never heard that one before! Although, I do admit to be slacking on my celeb pop culture.

What is also being long rumored is that Cohn is the godmother to the couple's six children. Double WOAH! When asked about that, Cohn "pleaded the fifth" during the segment were the guests are given three questions and have to answer two.

How did that combination come about? I sincerely want to know.

Why So Many Cancellations?

The list of canceled television shows for the season read like the list of its initial fall lineup! It happens every year of course, but networks do need to roll so many programs out so they can find THE ONE.

"Ringer", starring Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Sarah Michelle Geller, didn't make the cut. I watched the first few episodes and I am one of the viewers where (my) interest did not uphold.

Same with "Pan Am." I loved the premise and the throwback to that era (not to mention the Pan Am traveling bag!), but it could not keep me. I can't figure out why.
Pan Am
Now I know I love me some Josh Lucas, but how long did "The Firm" last? Before I had the chance to figure out when it aired & settle down, I think it was yanked.

The Firm
The only show that captured my interest and has remained a staple in my viewing schedule is "Once Upon A Time." It may be hard to follow with "two different worlds", but you just end up getting it. The actors fit the characters they play and the storylines don't lag. I dig Ginnifer Goodwin and Jennifer Morrison's "mother/daughter" dynamic. I was thrilled that it was renewed for next season.

And I have no idea why my "Desperate Housewives" interest picked up this final season. Maybe because it was that; their last year. I enjoyed it though and it was time for the series to come to a close. I noticed Marc Cherry's cameo as one of Susan's movers all on my own!

I'm just a viewer. My opinions (or lack of) are purely my own, of course.

Kanye and Kim

So I don't understand how these two winded up together but the press is sure eating it up. And it's been recently announced that Mr. West will be making some sort of appearance on Kardashian's reality series.

Let's hope they're still together by the time his guest spot airs...

Let's Try This Again in 2012

Okay, so I've decided to ramble here and there once again. I gots the urge right now. Will it last?! *shrugs* Who knows.....It's been like 3 years maybe since my last post. So much has gone on. I'm not as into Gossip Girl as I once was and can barely keep up with television and movies as it is. I try though and my love for pop culture remains intact. I read a lot now. What I read though may not be suitable for everybody. So we'll see where this goes. I wanna stick to my old format. I'm not one for a lot of change.
