Entertainment News

REPORT: JENNIFER LAWRENCE WILL BE A GROUPIE ON THE COLDPLAY TOUR
Jennifer Lawrence's next gig may be as a groupie for Coldplay. Radar Online is reporting that she is planning on supporting her rumored boyfriend, Chris Martin, when he and his bandmates hit the road.

A source told the website, "Coldplay will be announcing in the next several weeks that they are embarking on a tour across the United States to promote their new album, Ghost Stories. This won't be a huge tour as the band has done in the past, and will only be stopping in the major markets such as Los Angeles, Chicago and New York. Chris doesn't want to be away from his kids, Apple and Moses. Girlfriend Jennifer Lawrence will be part of the entourage. She has some down time in her schedule at the moment, and is having so much fun with Chris. Chris' sense of humor has genuinely surprised her, and his band mates really like Jennifer."

  • Chris has allegedly already invited Jennifer to join them in Las Vegas when they perform at the iHeartRadio festival.
  • A source told Us Weekly, "He writes her songs and loves taking her to private romantic spots. Chris is sweeping Jen off her feet. That's his thing."

CHARLIZE THERON OPENS UP ABOUT AGING FOR WOMEN
Charlize Theron wants to fix the double standard against women when it comes to aging. The Oscar winner recently sat down with Women's Wear Daily where she expressed her dismay over how much youth is valued in the world of beauty.

The 39-year-old explained, "Women should find their strength and power in their sexuality, in their sensuality within, through getting older and being secure within that. It's ironic that we've built the beauty world around 20-year-olds, when they have no f***in' concept about wisdom, what life is about. Women grow into their skin and learn the value of who they are over time. That's why I think people say women come into their prime in their 40s. And then for some reason our society just wants to go...it's like a dead flower. It's like we wilt for some reason."

  • Charlize went on to discuss how the opposite is true for men saying, "Men are like fine wines -- the older they get, the better they get. It's such a misconception, and it's such a lost opportunity because that's when I think women are really in the true moment of their sensuality."

But also, if you don't think you're going to see them again, do not let them take a shirt and shorts. Because you will not get that shit back."

  • Miles is currently dating model Keleigh Sperry.

Jen explained, "I'd talked to her personally about this for a while, just because it is such an issue of, like, 'Are you married yet? Are you going to have your babies yet?' I don't have this sort of checklist of things that have to be done, and...if they're not checked, then I've failed some part of my feminism or my being a woman or my worth and my value as a woman because I haven't birthed a child."

Lucy, didn't it beat Hercules by a lot opening weekend, when it was made for a lot less? She shows that she kicks ass, she's a great actress. Under the Skin is an incredible film, and why are we still waiting for a go-ahead on a superhero movie starring Scarlett Johansson? To me, it's a no-brainer. You want to make money, put Scarlett Johansson in a superhero movie!"
