Cate Blanchett looks like Courtney Love in that picture. Yikes!

I think it's admirable that Ms. Blanchett is able to keep acting post-mummification.

note on gofugyourself mentiones that Blanchett is 'slimming' down to play role of cancer patient

I hope Cate Blanchett lost the weight for a role and not because she gave up eating rolls.

Simpson is such a jerk! This restaurant owner stated a real reason not to serve him and his lawyer is going on about race?! Doesn't that hurt the credibility of real victims of racism? The lawyer issuing veiled threats about "messing with the wrong person," reminds me of Paris Hilton and her obvious distaste for law and order when it applies to her. Argh. This story made me so MAD. I hate that they can't see reason - The Paris story and now this OJ story just highlight what jerks these people are to the general populace, but they have NO IDEA, and worst of all, they get self-righteous about it. I can't stand people that just railroad through life like that. He's a bull in a china closet..

I have a hard time believing Cate Blanchett would starve herself for any other reason than her "art." It's painfully obvious she's too thin. (And the dress is ugly too.)
Speaking of ugly dresses, the fashion po-lice need to catch Kristin Dunst and spank her.
The photo of Virginia Masden on the People site isn't very flattering. I think if you're shilling for Botox you ought to at least look good.

Yep, there is some word that Cate may be purposely slimming down for her upcoming role in the film "Cancer Vixen."

Posted by: Liz | May 9, 2007 9:16 AM | Report abuse

Even if she couldn't hide the collar bones, Cate could've picked better makeup to look a little more flattering. The darker stuff around her eyes makes her look positively ghoulish...and even "thin wispy anorexic hair" can be styled other than a la bride of Frankenstein. May be its just a bad photo...

Thanks, BF... I sneezed coffee on my monitor and keyboard when I read your comment. What am I gonna tell I.T.?

On TomKat's new lair:

WTF is a "massage den?" On second thought....I don't think I want to know.

Did anyone notice that the paid mouth pieces denied that she was assaulted, but did not deny "talking in strange voices", and other behaviour some might consider not so mainstream?

Just saw a picture of Paris Hilton driving again -- wtf? Isn't her license suspended?

What is Simpson doing in an upscale restaurant? Doesn't he owe millions of dollars? Dude, you should be saving your money so you can back the families of the people you murdered.

I actually like Kirsten Dunst's outfit. It suits her. Didn't anyone else see her in "The Cat's Meow?" I also liked her Oscar dress.
I guess in some ways, the Olsens' creepy clothes suit them too. But at least Kirsten Dunst can act.
Cate should chop her hair off. She looks nice with short hair and she wouldn't look so freaky. Remember how much weight Meryl Streep lost for "Sophie's Choice"?

Sharon, by now you should know what O.J. was doing in an upscale restaurant... the same thing he's been doing on all those golf courses: LOOKING FOR THE REAL KILLER.
