It is still all too easy for us to casually discount or criticize celebrities for their choices, their wardrobes, their mates, their art, their lives, their whatever... How incredibly heartless. And sad.
Thank you, Jodie. Thank you for being a model of vulnerability, authenticity and true strength. This fellow 50-year-old mom and her 20-year-old daughter both think that you are so very cool.
Rather than fighting the aging process, more women seem to be coming to terms with it. They are redefining what it means to be beautiful -- at age 50, 60 and beyond -- and are wearing that new definition proudly on their faces.
Few people will forget Jodie Foster's speech when she received the Cecil B. DeMille award at the 2013 Golden Globes. Was it her charismatic stage pres...
Award season is one of the most exciting times of the year as I get to check in with my favorite celebrity clients and ensure their brows are red-carpet ready!
"NO, NO! Don't take them off! If you do your feet will swell. The blood is going to rush to your feet!" That was actress Hayden Panettiere's advice to a pained woman in the ladies room at the HBO Golden Globes party.
This widespread inability to see anything in the film but the subject of torture blinds us to the greater complexities it brings to the big screen and, as a result, to the question it raises in the big picture of American life after catching our breath from the chase the film depicts.
What I got was a woman who realizes that professionally she has achieved it all. There are no more mountains to climb unless she really, really wants to scale another show biz Everest. And she might. Or not.
Look, I get why rooting for Steven Spielberg can feel like rooting for the New York Yankees (and, no, let's not have that argument again), but I think he overcame his worst instincts in this movie and created what you might call a late masterpiece. It's not my favorite movie of the year, but it's the strongest candidate for Best Picture, in my opinion.
Did I hear that right? Does Anne Hathaway, queen of role model movie characters, actually have self-doubt? Of course she does, and this is what makes her real. This moment brought tears to my eyes and really showed me how amazing a person she is in real life.
An evening that is usually epitomized by Ricky Gervais' merciless snark, a room full of old men and their tense teenage brides, was suddenly transformed into three hours that felt like getting to catch up with my favorite girlfriends at a really nice wedding.
In her own awkward way, Foster let the world see that gay and lesbian people have loving, supportive families just like everyone else. A lot of us have great kids. Some of our relationships last a long time. Some end. It is another way that we are just like our non-gay friends.
Whatever you thought of last night, you'd have to agree that it was another indication of how it's becoming harder and harder for anyone in public life to have any real credibility and still be living in the closet.
Jodie Foster wittily surveyed her career and broached the topic of her sexual orientation in front of millions of people (even if she never said the words "gay" or "lesbian," her meaning was clear).
In 2013, one of my New Year's resolutions is to be like my favorite funny girls: Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaling and Zooey Deschanel.
Indeed, the dirty little secret about the Golden Globes is that they're the biggest flim-flam scam on the American public today.
