Pretty Woman: a Feminist Icon on film

Oh, yo. Oh, yo. Catch this…  Today is the 30th anniversary of the release of Pretty Woman! If you, like me, were forever changed and shaped by this film, then I wish you a happy anniversary, and apologies that we can no longer deny the march of time. Although given that most of us memorized this movie through rigorous viewings of the VHS tape, we may have a year or so’s grace. Full Story

There was a time, in the mid to late 1990s, when I would watch anything even tangentially related to Romeo and Juliet. No, this was not inspired by Romeo + Juliet, it was inspired by reading Romeo and Juliet in middle school (though when the movie came out just one year after I first read the play, yes, I saw it ten times in theaters and was convinced it was the most romantic movie ever made). Full Story

We’ve just passed the 16 year anniversary of the end of Bennifer, one of most significant couples of the modern gossip era. Think back to that time, it was a new millennium, and here were (some of) the celebrity couples we were obsessed with back then:  Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston  Cameron Diaz and Jared Leto (I KNOW, RIGHT?!) Jake Gyllenhaal and Kirsten Dunst I could keep going, but the Gossip Nostalgia hit you hard right? Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez started dating in 2002. Full Story

The last time Leonardo DiCaprio went to the Oscars with a date who wasn’t a relative was in 2005, Gisele Bundchen. It was kind of a big deal back then because up to that point, and mostly still now, Leo’s method has been to never put his love life on display. That year, though, he and Gisele walked the carpet together hand in hand. Full Story

Jessica Simpson is currently promoting her book Open Book. It comes out on February 4, I can’t wait to read it. Because clearly she gets it. She gets that if she’s writing this kind of book, there’s no point holding back on the stories. And she’s telling the stories. She’s getting vulnerable, she’s revealing her struggles Full Story

Okay, let’s get this out of the way first. Nobody wants to be mean to Renee Zellweger. It’s unthinkable, like kicking a bunny rabbit. Moreover, I’m not using ‘worst dressed’ just to be a dick, it’s – you know what? Let’s call it ‘least favourite’ and go from there, yes?  I didn’t hate this look right off the bat, or even necessarily dislike it. Full Story

So I’m going to be annoying right now and tell you that I called this: on Friday’s episode of etalk, I did a Gossip Nostalgia segment on the Golden Globes and my final Globes gossip memory was when Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, while hosting the show, made a joke about Taylor Swift and Michael J Fox’s son and Taylor took it so personally that later on, during an interview, she dropped that quote about “a special place in hell” for women not supporting other women. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

There were two major celebrity birthday parties happening this weekend: Taylor Swift celebrated her 30th and P Diddy celebrated his 50th. I’m going to talk about Beyoncé.  Beyoncé and Jay-Z were at Diddy’s big bash.  Read Full Intro

Sandra’s Bird Box anniversary

Sandra Bullock was seen in LA on Saturday which also happened to be the one year anniversary of the premiere of Bird Box on Netflix. I didn’t watch Bird Box because I try to avoid scary movies and especially scary movies during the holidays but that, evidently, isn’t a problem for rest of the world because Bird Box was a major hit last year with Netflix announcing that 45 million accounts streamed it in its first week, a record at the time. Full Story

Brad Pitt was last at the Golden Globes in January 2017 as a presenter. I don’t remember seeing him seated at a table though. He may have walked through the ballroom but there were no cutaways of him during the broadcast. It was four months after he and Angelina Jolie announced their divorce. He and Angelina, of course, were in the ballroom, and seated, a few times during their relationship. Full Story
