  • RENEE ZELLWEGER SHOWS OFF NEW LOOK AT ELLE EVENT

  • Wed, 22 Oct 2014 01:00:00 EST

    Photos of Renee Zellweger at the Elle Women in Hollywood event made the rounds on Tuesday (October 21st) with people shocked by her drastic new appearance. The Oscar winner looked so different that Gawker had to clarify that their source, Getty Images, had labeled the correct woman as Renee.

    Rumors circulated last year that she had gotten work done and was suffering from an eating disorder which she addressed in an interview with UK's Daily Express saying, "When you read reports that you are starving yourself or that you are anorexic it's very unfair and disappointing. It's not very pleasant to read reports which say you've gone too far or this or that." She went on to credit a dedicated gym regimen for her changing appearance.

    • The Chicago star has not made a movie since 2010 but has two projects lined up for next year.

  • SAM LUFTI DEFENDS HIS HONOR

  • Wed, 22 Oct 2014 01:00:00 EST

    Sam Lufti is fully aware of his negative reputation in the media and he wants to set the record straight. The man who has had close ties with Britney Spears, Courtney Love, and most recently, Amanda Bynes, has written an open letter for XO Jane in attempt to explain his connection to the three troubled women.

    He writes, "If you read anything in the media right now I'm described one of two ways: "shady" or "Svengali." Putting aside the racist and anti-Semitic problems of those two words, there is also one other huge issue with them: They are absolutely dead wrong. I've worked in Hollywood for a long time, and over the years these experiences have led me to see what happens when too much fame and too much money can sometimes get the best of celebrities. I am a problem solver, and I care about helping people get out of what may seem like some of their more difficult places in life. Which is why you have seen me associated with some of the more famous celebrities when they are in their most trying hours: Britney Spears, Courtney Love and now Amanda Bynes. Also intertwined with all of these women is a lot of media scrutiny and much wrangling over money, control and influence. So it makes sense that my name has been dragged through the mud more times than I can count. People fight dirty in Hollywood. They do what they need to do to come out on top and to claim the seat next to the most powerful. This has never been my M.O. I am a person who loves a good comeback story. I consider myself somewhat of a comeback, and I am also not afraid to get dirty in the process. If I need to be slandered in order to help other people get better -- or to help their reputations get better -- I have absolutely no problem with that. It's never been about me. It's been about them. Courtney asked me to write this in order to help stop some of the misinformation campaigns that have been nonstop over the last few weeks as Bynes has been more in the spotlight than ever. All I can tell you is that Amanda is getting the help that she needs and that I am working closely with her and her family in order to ensure that we can move on from the tabloid sensationalism of her "breakdown" and instead concentrate on what a rare, talented young woman she has always been and continues to be. Amanda is a beautiful, amazing and very strong woman who has been through a lot. So are Courtney and Britney. Like me, they are also survivors. Call me whatever name you need to but please, leave these women alone."

    • The letter also includes a photo of a text from Courtney showing her support for Sam and claiming that Lynn Spears, Britney's mother, made up lies about him.


  • BEN AFFLECK TRIED TO HELP SHIA LABEOUF

  • Wed, 22 Oct 2014 01:00:00 EST

    Shia LaBeouf admits in the new issue of Interview that Ben Affleck tried to offer him some advice during his time in need which he didn't take.

    The former Disney star explains, "Ben is a really charming dude. He was the first guy who really took me off to the side and made me feel like I could do it. He said, 'Keep your head on straight, kid, and don't let all this get to you.' He knew that I had cameras in my face and that there were expectations to perform. I think that's always been my issue. I'm prone to theatrics in my life. Ben saw that and was trying to curb it before it became an issue. He was unsuccessful."

    • Shia also tells the magazine that he is reforming his ways through religion.


  • JENNIFER GARNER SPEAKS ON SEXISM IN HOLLYWOOD

  • Wed, 22 Oct 2014 01:00:00 EST

    Jennifer Garner was a featured speaker at Elle's Women in Hollywood event on Monday (October 20th) where she discussed a recent press junket that became a prime example of sexism in Hollywood.

    She told the crowd, "The fact that there even needs to be a Women in Hollywood event is a little bit sad. I mean, the men in Hollywood event is every day -- it's called Hollywood. Fifty-one percent of the population should not have to have to schedule a special event to celebrate the fact that in an art that tells the story of what it means to be human and alive, we get to play a part. So for example, my husband and I do kind of the same job, a little bit. Not long ago we both had one of those magical days, we call it a junket, where we both attended these lovely events where people come in every four minutes, they ask the same questions over and over again, you know the drill. We got home at night and we compared notes. And I told him every single person who interviewed me, I mean every single one, and this is true of the red carpet here tonight Elle, asked me, 'How do you balance work and family?' and he said the only thing that people asked him repeatedly was about the tits on the 'Blurred Lines' girl, which, for the record if we're talking about them, they are real and they are fabulous. Take a look and enjoy. As for work-life balance, he said no one asked him about it that day. As a matter of fact, no one had ever asked him about it. And we do share the same family. Isn't it time to kinda change that conversation?"

    • The "Blurred Lines" girl is Ben Affleck's Gone Girl co-star Emily Ratajkowski.

A source said, "The owners are up in arms as they deal with relentless tourists, and SJP has ignored their requests for an explanation on how she could endorse the shoot, even though 'no trespassing' signs are posted. SJP used their house during the years of filming, and now won't acknowledge that she and her company used the steps and facade, this time without permission, to promote her shoe line." A rep for Sarah Jessica said she could not be reached to comment on the story.
