Somewhere between bulking up with The Rock and running away from giant (extinct) Hasbro toys, Mark Wahlberg lost 60 pounds. Did you notice? He wanted you to notice. In a new interview with USA Today Full Story

Oh now this is just too easy… Jessica Simpson posted this shot on Instagram the other day with the caption: Hiding from the paparazzi, so why not pose for Eric? As IF she hides from the paps. She wasn't hiding from them when she was leaving dinner the same night in the same outfit. Full Story

A quick refresher for those of you unfamiliar to Face or Body: as my friend Lara always says, faces need some fat on them, especially after 30. But that can mean sacrificing a bony ass to look younger. And many (most?) women in Hollywood choose body over face. They’d rather be very thin in the body and look older in the face than look younger in the face and have some curves down below. Full Story

It’s partly her own doing, I think. Had she showed up just on her own as Claire Danes, then she would have just been Claire Danes and the hair and the tan and that dress, which is not getting enough criticism, would have been judged on their own. But she showed up for most people’s first time on Ryan Seacrest’s carpet, hijacking the Lena Dunham interview and essentially pushing him off camera. Full Story

I think I’ve been clear here, before, that I really like the Marg. I spell her name wrong with regularity, of course, but I like her. She’s always kind of got some quiet sass about her, rocking the latter part of her career, and she knows exactly what’s up, I feel, at these events. Full Story

When I first started writing for LaineyGossip back in 2010 (oh my God—it’s been three years?!) I had a big Freebie Five crush on Chris Evans and Lainey gave me sh*t all the time. But then he got super jacked for Captain America and I wasn’t feeling it as much, as beefcake isn’t my favorite flavor. Full Story

Last year, Page Six reported that Kate Upton, unlike many of her model peers, was made to pay her own way into the MET Gala by Anna Wintour. This year at the MET Gala, Upton wore DVF and it was one of the most tragic looks of a night that was dominated by tragic looks. Full Story

My friend Amy D, a big country music fan, emailed me last night during the Grammys. OMG what happened to Faith Hill?!? My response: Face or Body. She’s choosing Body. In the choice not to have a big ass, sometimes, unless you’re Halle Berry, you sacrifice your face. This, I imagine, is why fillers became so popular. Full Story

Her Highness of Serenity was in New York today with Prince Albert. They’ve been travelling the last week or so and I heard they’re expected in Montreal this weekend for the Ritz-Carlton’s 100th anniversary (where Liz married Dick in yellow!)
