Is it just us, or is Jennifer Lawrence showing more and more skin with every red carpet appearance this Awards season?!

At this rate, she’ll show up to the Oscars wearing fishnets and nothing else!

Okay, well maybe it won’t be THAT dramatic, but The Silver Linings Playbook star really kicked the revealing fashion up a notch at yesterday’s 2013 Independent Spirit Awards with a cut-out black top that put all of Miley Cyrus‘ recent side-boob-age to SHAME…and left her beautiful back almost ENTIRELY exposed!

Thank goodness the ceremony was hosted in the warm temperatures of Santa Monica Beach!

Gurl completed her look with a matching black skirt, a Lanvin necklace, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, and a Bottega Veneta bag…and obviously, it all must have worked in her favor because she took home the award for “Best Female Lead Performance!”

Welcome to Starpulse’s Weekly Celebrity Twitter. This week has been filled with angry Indie-Hating Beliebers, baby fund-raisers and comedians having their Twitter accounts hacked by horse-eating Brits. Jump right in.

Style Watch: Worst Oscar Dresses Of All Time

Published June 28, 2013 by gossipzoo

Worst Oscar Dresses

People tune in to the Academy Awards to see who wins, but what fans really want to see is the fashion – especially when it’s bad. What are some of the worst Oscar looks from past ceremonies?

In 2009 Beyonce looked like she was wearing her grandmother’s curtains in a black and gold gown from House of Dereon. Jessica Biel wore a frumpy, unflattering Prada gown, while Amy Adams donned a bright red Carolina Herrera number that may have come from Spider-Man’s closet.

Miley Cyrus tried to dress older than her age in a silver and white Zuhair Murad gown in 2009, and in 2002 Gwyneth Paltrow wore an eye-popping transparent dress. Uma Thurman wore a white Christian Lacroix frock in 2004, taking the genie look to a whole new level.

Check out all the worst dressed looks in the video below:

10 ‘True Stories’ You Should Take With A Pinch Of Salt

Published June 26, 2013 by gossipzoo

taquilla-oct-argo-gana-transylvania_1_1441696

Real life stories are a major influence in cinema. Some of the greatest films ever made have been based on a true story.

Today, ‘based on a true story’ or ‘based on real events’ have become phrases specifically used to attract audiences; horror films, supernatural thrillers and even political dramas will use these phrases in their trailers and on their posters. Real life isn’t as exciting as cinema will have us believe unfortunately, so some real events – no matter how cool or exciting they will be – will have to be spiced up a little to make a decent film. Some films try to pass fiction off as real life however so here is ten ‘true’ stories that aren’t 100% true.

Most of them are not gross instances of lying but there are some interesting facts about the real life stories that surround the films. Other films rely purely on word of mouth and no matter how unbelievable the story is, they will insist on putting the true story line up to attract an audience.

Please note that there will be some important plot points and spoilers in here.

10. Argo (2012)

Pinch Of Salt - Argo

Argo was one of the best films of 2012 and has so far done very well in the awards season and will hopefully do well at the Oscars.

All films based on true stories have to have bits left out to quicken the pace and make them more entertaining. Argo is based on the Iranian US hostage crisis in 1980 and it does stay fairly factual but there are a few differences; the six escaped US citizens take refuge in the Canadian embassy – which is true.

However, in the film it states that the UK and New Zealand embassies refused them entry – this is not true; they stayed in the UK embassy for a few days but decided it was safer to stay in the Canadian embassy as they would be able to blend in there better with their accents. New Zealand also helped the people travel from embassy to embassy and helped them get to the airport to leave Iran. Missing this out is not a huge deal but it does mean that Argo has been added to a list of Hollywood films that eliminate international efforts from American stories. After all, this effort was nicknamed the Canadian Caper in the 1980s.

The end of the film is fantastic and has you on the edge of your seat but unfortunately, none of this happened. The real Mark Lijek (played by Christopher Denham in Argo) obviously received a lot of attention shortly after the films’ release and had nothing but praise for Ben Affleck. He did say however, that their real escape from Iran was not quite as tense and exciting:

“Argo is also a peek into a nightmarish alternate universe of how things might have been. Could I have survived three months under the stressful conditions depicted in the film? Would I have kept my cool if Iranian paramilitaries questioned my identity? Fortunately, these are questions I never had to answer.” (Source: http://www.slate.com)

Argo is a very good film which does stay pretty true to the original story. Just take a tiny, miniscule pinch of salt when watching it.

Charmed: 5 Reasons The Halliwell Sisters Are Greatest TV Witches Ever

Published June 26, 2013 by gossipzoo

CharmedCreditsLogo (1)

I’ve always been a bit of a fantasy geek but, recently, I’ve come to wonder about the lack of witches on television, particularly the small screen. I mean, we have a good few in movies, Harry Potter, Hocus Pocus, The Covenant (wow, was that movie awful or what?) and yet, they seem to be something of an anomaly on television series.

I’ve come to wonder why the shortage? I mean, aren’t we sick to death of demons and vampires by now? On top of that when witches ARE on a series they’re very rarely the good guys, but usually shady, shadow lurkers or just outright Evil. That’s why I’ve come to realise that Charmed was probably a lot more original and unique than it was ever given credit for (and not just a Buffy rip-off) I’ve come up why five reasons why I think the sister coven stands out from other TV witches, both on series and films.

5. Protectors of the Innocent

Phoebe_Paige_Lydia2

Charmed was unique in that its protagonists were given very real responsibility. In traditional fairytales, or in movies, the most iconic witches are either portrayed as the frightful antagonist (Hansel and Gretel, Bellatrix Lestrange in Harry Potter) morally ambiguous (Tia Dalma in Pirates of the Caribbean, Nancy in The Craft) or comical (Sanderson Sisters in Hocus Pocus, Owens Sisters in Practical Magic).

However, the Halliwell Sisters are arguably the most responsible, valuable and important witches in popular culture (along with Harry Potter’s Hermione Granger) and certainly on television. From the pilot episode it is very clearly stipulated that the Halliwells, and witches in general, have a purpose: to use their powers to protect the Innocent from the forces of Evil. Here we have ‘witches’ destined with a role that is often attributed to guardian angels and superheroes in popular culture.

These witches are very clearly NOT Evil, but in fact the strongest force for Good.
