Thinnification Articles

Celebrity weight loss, typically but not exclusively for the purpose of career advancement and not always due to health reasons.

Girl Sh-t over fat

Girls, girls....girls. As I always say, Girl Sh-t is the best sh-t. And the best Girl Sh-t usually happens over boys or our bodies, sometimes both at the same time. Look at LeAnn Rimes’s thinnification - is it an accident that her predecessor has the same rail thin frame? This is a study I would pay attention to - what’s more upsetting: another girl flirting with your fiancé or finding out your fiancé, who loves you and would never, ever leave you, thinks you might need to lose weight? I wish I could give you the All Fem fists pump here but that would be a lie. Full Story

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were spotted together at the Dorchester in London on Saturday. You know who used to stay at the Dorchester? Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. It was one of their favourites. They’d have massive rows there and then wake everyone up all over again with their f-cking. Full Story

It’s a cycle every two years or so. Janet Jackson goes militant and loses a lot of weight and takes her top off for the cover of some magazine, and then a year later, she’s covered up in sweats not wanting to be photographed. Don’t sh-t on me for making it an issue. I’m only making it an issue because SHE makes it one when she grants an interview to some glossy about how she’s finally found the formula to “stay fit forever!!!” Here’s Janet at AMFAR last night at the Hotel du Cap looking svelte and ageless. Full Story

LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian flew back to LA from Houston yesterday after she sang the national anthem at the NCAA championship game. No problem here, right? Especially not with her legs? Totally fine! That's what she's insisting on her Twitter: dear lord! I do not workout too much nor do I starve myself. Full Story

Not sure why the NCAA asked LeAnn Rimes to sing the national anthem at the game yesterday. But she was there, along with Eddie Cibrian, in Houston for the championship game, proudly flaunting her healthy legs in a white dress and huge heels. Healthy. That’s what she calls it. That’s what she insists it is. Full Story

Ryan is thin

Definitely thinner lately, right? Just me? Ryan Reynolds was in Vegas for CinemaCon yesterday to promote The Green Lantern (with Blake Lively, more on her later) and to collect his award for Male Star of the Year. As you can see, he has a new shorter haircut. I’m telling you, his face looks a lot more drawn. Full Story

SO good, right? Ryan Gosling continues to work on The Ides of March in Michigan with George Clooney and Philip Seymour Hoffman – my Haymitch in The Hunger Games, although I could be persuaded into something really, really out of the box, I mean it has to be f-cking crazy, no one would ever think it, so original. Full Story

Karma bones

New photos surfaced this week of a very, very, very skinny LeAnn Rimes out somewhere with Eddie Cibrian. See for yourself. The legs speak for themselves. Like Victoria Beckham wants these legs. Which means they’re probably not the sturdiest legs in the world. LeAnn, who is a prolific tweeter and, if you ask me, uses it improperly (“ha ha, you’re so right”, or, “thanks for the love”, or “omg that’s so funny” is for text message, not Twitter), is trying to front like she’s totally fine, insisting that she does indeed eat, posting photos of her breakfast, and claiming that she’s healthy. Full Story

Prince William and Kate Middleton showed up in Belfast this morning, continuing to tour the nation before their wedding at the end of April. It was a surprise “top secret” trip, apparently for security issues, but both seemed relaxed and in game form, especially for the old biddies and kids who can’t get enough of the Royalness. Full Story

Grammy ThinFace: Jennifer Hudson

Jennifer Hudson has lost something like 80 pounds. She looks great. Which, sometimes I hate saying because, like in the example of Kelly Osbourne, somehow it feels like an invalidation of the size that came before. Having said that, Hudson is not Osbourne. She was very successful before Weight Watchers, she’ll continue to be successful beyond it. Full Story
