GOSSIP ESCLUSIVO - Clamoroso a "Cougar Town"! La Cox se la spassa col più giovane collega di serial (ah, la vita che è un telefilm...!), Arquette fila con una giovane bruna che sembra la Cox (20 anni fa)...Che Waltzer!
Strani i casi della vita. La quale a volte, davvero, è un telefilm. Capita che Courteney Cox, protagonista di "Cougar Town" sugli appetiti (sessuali) di donne verso i più giovani, divorzi dal marito David Arquette. E che ora si sia fatta beccare non solo col collega di set nel telefilm - Brian Van Holt - bensì pure più giovane di lei...David Arquette, dal canto suo, fila già con un'attricetta bruna, tale Jasmine Waltz (nella foto a destra), classe 1982, che assomiglia alla Cox 20 anni fa (o a Demi Moore 30 primavere or sono). Un Waltzer di doppia coppia che meriterebbe un bell'articolone prima o poi, soprattutto su quei settimanali che spacciano creme anti-rughe o anti-cellulite come il toccasana della nostra società...magari.

GOSSIP - Taylor, non fermarti...spara! La Momsen sempre più chock diventa guerrigliera d'assalto
La fulminante ascesa di Taylor Momsen ("Gossip Girl") verso il trash più assoluto continua. La bionda attrice-cantante-simil-punk stupisce ancora in un servizio fotografico (s)vestita da guerrigliera, con tanto di tacchi pistoleri degni del tarantinolato "Grind House". O al massimo degna, lei sì, di ristabilire l'ordine in una prossima Italia-Serbia. Il giornale che pubblica la foto, del resto, si chiama "Revolver" (chissà come si sarebbe tra(s)vestita la nostra se fotografata per un settimanale che si occupa di scope e ramazze...). Comunque sia, la mise sfoggiata dalla regina della ricrescita è perfetta per la giungla metropolitana che scotta, assai indovinata per scendere alla fermata di Cimiano della linea verde a Milano senza che qualche buzzurro si avvicini chiedendo un euro. Il sindaco Moratti dovrebbe farci un pensierino...(ad ingaggiarla, mica a travestirsi anche lei come Taylor!)

GOSSIP - "Friends" forever! Uniti nel bene e nel male: uno (Schwimmer) si sposa, l'altra (Cox) si separa
He’s never been one to settle down, but it turns out David Schwimmer has been married for the past four months. The “Friends” actor reportedly wed his girlfriend Zoe Buckman back in June in a small, private ceremony. David met Zoe in 2007 while he was filming “Run, Fat Boy, Run” in London. Schwimmer was eating in the restaurant in which Miss Buckman was working. Interestingly enough, David’s wedding was discovered on the same day that his former costar Courteney Cox announced that she was splitting with her husband of 11 years David Arquette. Having recently been dogged with affair rumors, Courteney Cox and David Arquette have called it quits after 11 years of marriage.
Making the announcement in a statement, the former couple tells, "The reason for this separation is to better understand ourselves and the qualities we need in a partner and for our marriage." Courteney and David, who share a 6-year-old daughter named Coco, add, "We remain best friends and responsible parents to our daughter and we still love each other deeply. As we go though this process we are determined to use kindness and understanding to get through this together." The statement finishes by telling, "We are comfortable with the boundaries that we have established for each other during this separation and we hope that our friends, family, fans and the media also show us respect, dignity, understanding and love at this time as well."
GOSSIP - Minka, ke sexy! La Kelly di "Parenthood" eletta la più sensuale del pianeta da "Esquire" (kissà le altre!)
Los Angeles, 11 ott. (Adnkronos/Dpa) - L'attrice e modella Minka Kelly, figlia del chitarrista degli Aerosmith Rick Dufay, e' stata definita la donna vivente piu' sexy del mondo dalla rivista 'Esquire'. Protagonista della serie tv "Parenthood", basata sul film del 1989 'Parenti, amici e tanti guai', la giovane ha raccontato di non aver mai posato per foto sexy in precedenza. L'attrice di 30 anni, figlia di una showgirl di Las Vegas, ha poi spiegato di aver vissuto anche periodi non facili, specialmente durante l'infanzia e dopo che suo padre era andato via di casa. La giovane, fidanzata con il giocatore di baseball Derek Jeter capitano dei 'New York Yankees', racconta poi che non ama la mondanita'. "La serata ideale per me -afferma- e' cenare a casa, un film e un bicchiere di vino".
GOSSIP - Mad women! Christina Hendricks(hock!): "le donne e i gay mi fanno la corte, quelle 'in forma' mi ringraziano per farle sentire più sexy"
Christina Hendricks di "Mad Men" a ruota libera dalla copertina di "Harper's Bazar": "le donne mi fanno la corte e anche i gay. Mi dicono: non sono eterosessuale, ma penso che se lo fossi sarebbe eccitante farlo con te!". Stessa sorte per le donne in forma: "a una cena mi si è avvicinata una donna che mi ha ringraziato per farla sentire bene nonostante fosse un pò sovrappeso, guardandomi nel serial si è sentita nuovamente sexy e attraente". Sul ruolo di Joan in "Mad Men": "ho dei vestiti molto stretti....!".

Leggi il resto dell'intervista in originale.
It's been a heady couple of years for Christina. Since she was cast as the imperiously sexy office manager Joan on Mad Men, she has given bold new meaning to "sexy secretary." Men love her—that's a given—but women love her more. She's a relief, because after years of endless bobbleheads on the red carpet, Christina's voluptuous figure (not to mention her total ease with herself) seems entirely remarkable.
When Christina, 35, originally auditioned for Mad Men, she was up for the part of Midge, Don Draper's bohemian lover. She ended up being cast as the "bossy, know-it-all" Joan. The character has become something of a cult figure, due to Christina's measured, artful performance and, in no small part, her now-famed Joan walk—an exaggerated, saucy sway that accelerates heartbeats as much as it stops traffic. "All the costumes were so tight," Christina explains of the Walk. "I wasn't used to the undergarments, so my natural swing became more of a swing. After I became conscious of it, my hands came up too."
While Joan has a peanut-brittle exterior, inside she's all caramel. "Joan would probably have rules like 'To be a polite guest, eat all but the last two bites,'" Christina—whose voice in person is a fairylike tinkle and in a higher register than Joan's—says, laughing, as she cleans up her gnocchi. "You'd want to make sure that your host knew you enjoyed the meal, but you want to be a lady." Joan's retro rules have spawned a satirical blog, What Would Joan Holloway Do?, and the ultimate validation, her own Barbie (with curves that are actually anatomically possible). Christina never thought that she would become the poster girl for...curvy girls. "When the attention started to be about my figure, I was surprised, because it wasn't something I was focused on. And then it became very positive, and people were saying very nice things." During Mad Men's first season, she and Arend were at dinner when a fan approached her and said, "'Excuse me, I just want to tell you that I watch your show, and you make me feel better about myself. I am a curvy woman, and you've made me feel sexy and beautiful.' I got teary eyed." Christina tears up again at the memory. "I remember Geoffrey saying, 'That's what you're doing for people. That's amazing.' And I said, 'I'm just trying to be a good actress and trying to tell a story, but if this is the sidebar, all this positivity, then that is awesome.'" Of course, success and attention have a flip side, which Christina learned the hard way earlier this year after the Golden Globes, to which she wore a ruffled peach confection by Christian Siriano. The New York Times's Cathy Horyn, who was blogging about the awards, was critical of "pretty Christina Hendricks in Christian Siriano's exploding ruffle dress. (As one stylist said, ''You don't put a big girl in a big dress. That's rule number one.')" The piece ran next to a distorted photograph that made Christina look wider than she was, which Horyn later noted.
"To say something like that and put it next to a distorted picture discredits you entirely," Christina says. "And it hurt my feelings. I thought that dress was stunning. I stand by that dress to this day. I had just gotten back from my honeymoon, and I felt beautiful in those pictures. I was smiling and beaming, and I felt like a goddess. It's a celebration, and I'm here because the show I work on is being recognized as excellent work. And you're going to tell everyone in the world that I was wearing a shitty dress? Let me go to a party and wear my pretty dress!"
As Christina's star has risen, her dresses have indeed gotten prettier. She notes the perverse pressure on actresses to turn up in designer gowns for one night only and the challenges when one can't just slip into something off the sample rack. "You are expected to go to these things wearing fabulous dresses that are incredibly expensive, so it gets difficult," she says. "I found myself at the beginning of Mad Men, because I wasn't a sample size, spending an exorbitant amount of money on a nice dress that I would never wear again because someone would say"—she wrinkles her nose theatrically—"'Christina Hendricks wore this dress twice.'"
Years ago in an interview, Christina said it was difficult to find a dress that wasn't a sample size, and she recently saw that quote recycled in a British tabloid. "I was like, Whoa! First of all, I am so grateful any time I get to wear one of these great dresses, and since the show has gotten more popular, I've had the opportunity to wear the most amazing designers. I mean, L'Wren Scott? How did that happen?" She is also a huge admirer of John Galliano. "Oh, Galliano," she faux swoons. "Forever and ever and ever. I don't care what he does, whether it's leather, delicate lace, or anything. I'll carry a riding crop down the red carpet."
Christina is a recent convert to Style.com after being introduced to the runway Web site by Mad Men costar January Jones. "She has been into fashion for years," Christina says. "She is incredibly knowledgeable, and it's a passion of hers. I've learned a lot from her."
Christina got the fashion jump on Jones, though, starting to model when she was 17. At school in Virginia and a self-termed Goth, she was discovered by a local photographer who shot her for her first job, a feature in Elegant Bride. At 18, she moved to New York and a world of potentially sleazy adventure. "One day, my modeling agent handed me something and said, 'This is an invitation to Johnny Depp's birthday party.' I thought it was a joke. I don't know Johnny Depp. I was so confused. Then this flashbulb went off: 'Oh...Johnny Depp has no idea this is going on. Someone is setting this up and is inviting models to his party.'" Ever enterprising, Christina decided to sell her ticket. "Fifty bucks!" she says proudly. "I bought groceries."
At five foot eight and a size 4, Christina made a good living modeling. One day, however, her agent asked her to lose 10 pounds. "I remember thinking, You're crazy! I said okay, but I didn't do it. It seems that models have gotten smaller. I was a 4, but now they're a 0 or 2."
Christina always had a preternaturally healthy body image. "My mother never said to lose weight. Diets were never a big deal. My mom was always beautiful and voluptuous and curvy, and I always thought she was gorgeous." But puberty had its inevitable challenges. "I did have doubts about my figure when I was 12, 14," she admits. "I was a dancer, but my body was changing. Then all of a sudden I started getting boobs and my body wasn't playing along with my game plan. It got depressing for a bit, because I desperately wanted to be a ballerina."
In the mid-'90s, fortune took Christina to London, where she modeled for magazines like Dazed & Confused and in runway shows including Hussein Chalayan. "Oh, I have a story for you," she says conspiratorially. "I was in Milan, and you would see the same girls at castings. There was one girl—she was like, 'I can't get any work. I'm so sick of this, I'm ready to quit. I love your hair color. What do you color your hair with?' and I was like, 'Oh, it's red. Here's my formula.' It was Karen Elson. A couple of weeks later, she had bright-red hair." Christina leans into the tape recorder and says, "Sorry, Karen, but you did ask about my hair color. Then I saw her on the cover of Italian Vogue, and the rest is history!" She laughs. "Karen is amazing. I'm such an admirer of hers." But she's right: It is a good story. While Mad Men continues to tell good stories on television and wins awards by the bucketload, Christina's dance card is filling up. The show is currently on break, so she's off to shoot Drive, a noir thriller opposite Carey Mulligan and Ryan Gosling. ("Not losers," she notes with a wink.) Until then, she has "a whole week and a half" to hang out with Arend, who has just arrived at the restaurant and is digging into a plate of pasta. He's more than aware that people like his girl. "Sometimes at home, Christina will be walking from one room to another, and I'll see the Joan walk come out," he says. "And I remember when we first met, we went out to Korean barbecue. I was in a car, and you were walking across the street. There was this guy yelling, 'How you doin'?' And I was catcalling you, but you didn't hear me because you were getting so much attention." "I remember what I was wearing," Christina says, smiling. "A short white cotton shirtdress and knee-high suede motorcycle boots with braids in my hair." "Oh, yes," says Arend, looking like the cat that got the cream. "That's why we kissed that night."
