Emma Stone Reveals Scary Side Effects Of Wearing A Corset


To corset or not to corset? Emma Stone says NOT.


In her upcoming 18th century period film, The Favourite, Emma stone had had to wear a corset. And she’s totally “Women existed like that for such a long time, which gives you a lot of sympathy for that time period and what they were going through,” she expressed on The Graham Norton Show.


The 29-year-old actress then opened up about her personal experience with the hardships of wearing a corset. “For the first month, I couldn’t breathe,” she told the host. “I would smell menthol and it would make me think I was in a wide-open space and could breathe for a moment in time.”


And as more time passed, something else happened to her body. “After a month, all my organs shifted,” Emma revealed. “It was gross.”




“And if you don’t have to, don’t do it,” she continued.


We hear you, Emma!


Emma is set to play an ambitious maid named Abigail in the movie. She’ll be sharing the screen with Olivia Colman and Rachel Weisz.

How Baby Spice Plans To Entice Posh To Join Reunion Tour

Sugar, spice and everything nice – with a dash of zig-a-zig-ah!

Last month, the Spice Girls gave us what we want what we really really want – a Spice Girls reunion tour!

Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell, Melanie Chisolm and Melanie Brown – a.k.a. Baby Spice, Ginger Spice, Sporty Spice and Scary Spice – announced that they are banding back together to hit the road next May (2019) for their U.K. Stadium Tour.

Yes, we’re all totally psyched. But one question was also on everyone’s minds: Where’s Posh?

In an appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show on ITV in the U.K., Mel C revealed that they did not invite bandmate Victoria Beckham. “Do you know what is actually quite funny. I saw Victoria recently and obviously we’ve all been in contact, she is still very much a part of the Spice Girls, she really supports us and we really support her. But she did raise the point that she was never actually asked. We just presumed,” she said on the show.

Geri seconded Mel C’s story, sharing, “I spoke to her two days ago, before the announcement and she has said it for years that she just doesn’t want to do it anymore, so we knew that.”

But it’s all good between these ladies. As Emma Bunton explains, “She just didn’t want to do it. She was busy with her fashion and she has moved on. The philosophy of us is that we are a band, on and off the stage and we care for each other, we support each other and we support her and she has been a huge part of our lives and we care about her, so it’s all good.”

And if there’s any doubt, Victoria is totally supportive of her bandmates’ upcoming tour, even posting about it on Instagram.

But hopes of seeing the fivesome perform together again may not be totally dashed. Baby, Ginger, Sporty and Scary have said that the door is always open for Posh.

Mel B even joked that “She’s [Victoria] joining us in Wembley on June 14” in an interview on the Heart Breakfast radio show. (We’re totally keeping our fingers crossed she does!)

And, now, Emma has revealed that she has a few tricks up her sleeves,too!

Baby Spice just landed a sweet new gig – as the host of The Great American Baking Show: Holiday Edition. And it looks like this Spice Girl is gearing up for a holiday filled with sugar, spice and everything nice – and that includes plans to entice Posh to join the rest of the Spice Girls on tour!

As for how she plans to do it, her new hosting gig might come in handy.

“She likes blueberries, so maybe we could do like a blueberry muffin,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “Crumble, that’s even better. I’d have to get one of the contestants to do it, I’d get lost.”  

We certainly hope Emma can win Victoria’s heart through her stomach! But whether she joins them on stage or not, Posh will definitely be cheering her bandmates on.

“It’s so lovely because the support that we give each other anyway, like, she’s been emailing and we chat and she’s coming to the show,” Emma shared, talking about Victoria. “The four of us feel very strong now as a team, so she’ll be watching. It would be nice to have her there.”

She also revealed that preparations for their tour are well underway.

“We’re creating the stage, we are talking about the set list, and we love that bit and we sit together and we’re like, ‘What are we gonna do for this song?’ and ‘What are the outfits gonna be?’, so that’s where we are at the moment.”

But on whether there will be surprise guests joining them onstage – like superfan Adele, Chrissy Teigen, Emma Stone, and more – she’s totally keeping mum. “I couldn’t possibly say,” she teased.

Congrats on your new show, Emma!


And we’re so hoping Baby Spice succeeds in bringing Posh back into the mix!

Check Out These Golden Globes Nominees’ Priceless Reactions

With the holidays fast approaching, it also means that awards season is nigh!

Hollywood is gearing up for awards season, and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has announced that the 2019 Golden Globes will be hosted by a pair of actors with “undeniable chemistry” – Killing Eve’s Sandra Oh and Brooklyn-Nine-Nine’s Adam Samberg.

“We’re excited to welcome Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg as co-hosts of Hollywood’s party of the year,” HFPA president Meher Tatna said. “Both Golden Globe Award recipients have continually showcased their talents in film and television, and we can’t wait see what their undeniable chemistry will bring to the Golden Globes stage.”

Andy and Sandra have already teamed up as presentors at the 2018 Emmy’s – remember when Sandra tore up the envelope with the winner inside? It will definitely exciting to see what these two will cook up in January!

The nominations for the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards have also been announced – and many are making Golden Globe history!

Awards buzz has surrounded the groundbreaking movie that is Black Panther ever since the movie hit the screens in February. And fans are totally psyched that they’re up for three Golden Globes – Best Picture, Best Original Score, and Best Original Song (for “All of the Stars” by Kendrick Lamar featuring SZA).

Black Panther getting a nod for Best Picture is a first for any superhero movie in the category ever. Although another superhero film was nominated for Best Motion Picture in the Musical or Comedy category – shout out to Deadpool, who received the nom back in 2016.

Also making Golden Globe history is Pose, which is nominated for Best Television Series – Drama. The Hollywood Reporter cites the show as the first TV series with a mostly transgender cast to be nominated in any category – and that it already broke the mold as the show with an unprecedented number of LGBTQ talent featured in front of and behind the cameras.

Constance Wu is the first Asia American actress to be nominated for a Golden Globe since 1974 for her role as Rachel Chu on the hit summer flick Crazy Rich Asians. According to CNN, other Asian actresses who were up for the award were Yvonne Elliman (for her role in 1973’s Jesus Christ Superstar), Miyoshi Umeki (for her role in 1961’s Flower Drum Song), and Machiko Kyō, (for her role in 1956’s The Teahouse of the August Moon.)

Lady Gaga, who’s up for Best Actress in a Film Drama and Best Original Song for A Star Is Born, has the potential to break grounds. The 32-year-old performer is no stranger to the Golden Globes – receiving a nomination for her “Hello Hello” collaboration with Elton John in 2012 and bagging a trophy for her role on American Horror Story in 2016. And while other musicians have received acting noms in the past – with a few winning in the Best Film Comedy/Musical Actress category – if she wins, Lady Gaga would be the first musician to bring home a Golden Globe for acting in a dramatic film.


And when the announcement of the Golden Globe nominations finally sank in, these nominees couldn’t be happier!

But it’s great to know we’re not the only ones who are proud of it and we’re just so grateful that people continue to love the show as much as we do. The real win was to be able to play a role like this with creators and writers and directors that I admire so greatly and with this cast, I mean, come on! All of this stuff is just icing on the cake and it’s nice to be invited back to the party. It sounds so cliché but it’s so true, I’ve already won,” Rachel tells Entertainment Weekly.

Jonah Hill Talks Self Love “I’m Under Construction”

Jonah Hill


Jonah Hill is learning about self-acceptance: “I’m under construction like we all are.”


On Friday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Jonah opened up about his lifelong struggle with weight and self-acceptance – and opened up about a point in his life when he felt “unattractive” and just “wanted so badly to be accepted.”




The 34-year-old actor is making his directorial debut with the movie Mid90s, which inspired him to publish a free magazine called Inner Children, featuring interviews – with everyone from Jonah’s therapist to Behati Prinsloo to Michael Cera – talking about self-love.


Reading the manifesto at the start of the magazine, he voiced a message he dedicated to his younger self. “I became famous in my late teens and then spent most of my young adult life listening to people say that I was fat and gross and unattractive. And it’s only in the last four years writing and directing my movie, Mid90s, that I’ve started to understand how much that hurt and got into my head,” he said.


“I really believe everyone has a snapshot of themselves from a time when they were young that they’re ashamed of. For me, it’s that 14-year-old overweight and unattractive kid who felt ugly to the world, who listened to hip-hop and who wanted so badly to be accepted by this community of skaters,” he revealed.


Jonah Hill 2


“I think everybody has a version of themselves… at some point in your life the person you’re trying to kind of hide from the world,” Jonah said, talking about growing up uncertain about yourself. “Even if you get success or you grow up or you become good looking or whatever, the things that you think will fix the thing, you kind of carry some part of that with you.”


Reflecting on his own struggles, Jonah shares: “What I found amazing about [the magazine] is it was really a companion piece to writing and directing Mid90s because, to me, this movie is about learning to love yourself and finding a community of people that accepts you and how imperfect life is.”


“It took a long time, honestly until right now, for me to come out as sort of the person, the artist, mind, what I represent, how I feel, how I’d like to be spoken to, how I speak to the world in a way that actually represents who I am as a person as opposed to me trying to be something else that I’m not.”
