Thanks to her pretty face and her sexy figure, AnnaLynne can have any guy she wants. But the 25-year-old actress, who started dating 42-year-old “Prison Break” star Dominic Purcell early last year after her split from ex-boyfriend Kellan Lutz, has decided that she prefers men who are a little bit older.

Though they split briefly in October, AnnaLynne and Dominic, who have been together for almost two years, are still going strong… despite their 17-year age difference.

In a recent interview with Us Weekly, AnnaLynne reveals why she prefers dating someone who’s older than her:

“What I like about an older man is that they tend to be your rock… Whenever I have my crazy [moments], like, ‘Ah, this is never going to work out!’ Then he’s there.”

She continues:

“I need a guy who’s confident and is secure in himself, because we’re always apart.”

The blonde beauty then adds:

“What is that song? ‘Are You Strong Enough to Be My Man?’ by Sheryl Crow. That sums it up for me! He’s got to be strong!”

JUSTIN BIEBER Talks About SELENA GOMEZ And Marriage In Pre-Split Interview On “OPRAH’s Next Chapter”

Published November 27, 2012 by gossipzoo

JUSTIN BIEBER talked about his then-girlfriend SELENA GOMEZ and marriage during his pre-split interview on “OPRAH‘s Next Chapter.”

Awkward!

WBU 019116

Oprah‘s Next Chapter” probably made Justin Bieber and then-girlfriend, Selena Gomez, feel incredibly uneasy when the “Boyfriend” singer’s revealing sit-down interview on the show aired on Sunday-almost a month after their split that was allegedly caused by another woman and his “wandering” eye.

Then again, it could very well be an ammunition for the teen pop superstar who is currently trying to win his sweetheart back.

For starters, he talked to Oprah Winfrey about his plans to get married by the age of 25, possibly with Selena. He said:

“We’ll see when I get there. I’m not there yet.”

But Oprah advised him to enjoy his twenties, so the 18-year-old Biebs‘ thought he “should probably listen” to her just like he listens to his mom, Pattie Mallette, who had him by accident before she turned 20.

Justin said about the thought of having babies at his age:

“I couldn’t imagine having a baby right now. It’d be crazy. I’m not ready for that.”

Finally, when asked about Selena, Justin gushed:

“I feel like she’s one of the most genuine people.”

He added:

“She just has a good heart. I can talk to her about everything.”

Aaww.

Do you think Selena will find it in her “good heart” to take him back after watching the interview?

LINDSAY LOHAN On ELIZABETH TAYLOR Role: “Everything I’ve Gone Through Made Me Ready” For It

Published November 27, 2012 by gossipzoo

LINDSAY LOHAN once again spoke about her role as ELIZABETH TAYLOR in the TV biopic, “Liz & Dick,” and admitted that “everything that I’ve gone through made me ready” for it.

How becoming of her!

Campaigning for the role and finally getting to become legendary actress Elizabeth Taylor in the newly-premiered Lifetime biopicLiz & Dick” is both a comeback and a dream come true for Lindsay Lohan.

But playing the late screen legend is obviously a serious job even for the best Hollywood actresses, which was why Lindsay has been slammed for being undeserving of the part and received at least one bad early review for her portrayal of Taylor.

Nonetheless, Lohan is proud of her work. But why does she think so highly of herself and her acting skills?

She told Us Weekly during a recent exclusive sit-down interview:

“Everything I’ve gone through made me ready to play Liz.”

Indeed, she was a child star-turned-tabloid favorite for her troublesome past, her unhealthy relationships and her thing for alcohol and drugs–just like her late actress friend and mentor was.

She continued:

“Since I was a kid, I’ve loved being on camera. Don’t misconstrue that: I didn’t strive to have flashbulbs at dinner or people who don’t know me calling TMZ. And 99 percent of the time, it’s not true.”

And like Taylor, she was both lucky and unlucky for being a huge star under a microscope and having most of her life plastered all over Hollywood news since she was little. Lindsay revealed:

“I feel bullied. I can’t think of any actor who has been subjected to such extreme publicity who hasn’t, like, committed suicide.”

LiLo then suggested that she may even be better than Elizabeth herself–when it comes to professionalism, at least. The 26-year-old star declared:

Elizabeth was drunk on sets. I’ve never been drunk on set, ever. I did my time and I respect the law.”

And what might Taylor advise Lindsay to do other than to do her justice and reap the benefits of good reviews?

Lindsay told the mag:

“She probably would have said, ‘Figure it the hell out.’ You have to learn it for yourself sometimes.”

We wouldn’t say that she has, but we do hope her high-profile role proves that she’s getting there.

What can you say about Lindsay‘s statements?

LINDSAY LOHAN Talks Cancelled BARBARA WALTERS Interview And Half-Sister With JAY LENO (VIDEO)

Published November 23, 2012 by gossipzoo

LINDSAY LOHAN talked about her cancelled BARBARA WALTERS interview and her newly-confirmed half-sister during her interview with JAY LENO.

Lindsay Lohan sat down for another interview… but it’s not the one that she promised Barbara Walters.

The actress made a stop on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and she broke her silence about why she chose to cancel her scheduled interview with Walters (who is probably still fuming about Lindsay picking Leno over her) on such short notice.

She also didn’t refuse to answer personal questions about her DNA-confirmed teenage half-sister-whom her dad, Michael, fathered while still married to her mom, Dina-and her thoroughly criticized portrayal of Elizabeth Taylor in her newly-premiered TV biopic, “Liz & Dick.”

Watch her full interview here.

TAYLOR SWIFT: I Promised An Ex “I Won’t” Write About Him But I Did It Anyway!

Published November 22, 2012 by gossipzoo

In recent star news, TAYLOR SWIFT shared that she actually promised an ex that she won’t write about him but she did it anyway.

Sneaky Taylor!

AES 0815201

We all know Taylor Swift is pretty notorious for writing songs about her ex-boyfriends who messes her up so naturally, the last few were worried about her publicizing their faults and whatnot in her song.

In fact, one particular ex even asked the five-time Grammy-winning singer-songwriter to leave him out of her future lyrics, to which Taylor agreed… only to write about him anyway!

She admitted in an interview with The New York Times:

“Of course I was like, ‘Oh, don’t worry, I won’t.’ And then I did.”

To her defense, she explained:

“Look, it’s not like it was written somewhere in the fine print that I write songs about my life. If we break up, I’m going to write about it. But I’m probably also going to write about when I fell in love with you. So there’s an upside.”

We-and her guys-may not have an exact idea what or who she’ll end up writing about but we can always try to decode them. For example, even John Mayer presumed “Dear John” was about him, just like we think her chart-topping “Red’ album is mostly about her other ex, Jake Gyllenhaal.

But Taylor never spills-except through her cryptic lyrics. She said:

“I don’t talk about who it is specifically because these are real people. You try to give insight as to where you were coming from as a writer without completely throwing somebody under the bus.”

Sounds pretty reasonable to us!

What do you think about Taylor getting her most of her song material from her songs?

ROBERT PATTINSON Opens Up About Suffering Depression For Two Years Due To “Twilight” Fame

Published November 11, 2012 by gossipzoo

According to recent Hollywood news, ROBERT PATTINSON has opened up about the fact that he suffered depression for two years due to his immense “Twilight” fame.

LMK 029976

Being the world’s most famous vampire is not easy.

When “Twilight” first came out, the main stars-specifically Robert Pattinson and his on-again girlfriend Kristen Stewart-became the recipients of such immense media attention and fame that the mere mention of their names began causing stampedes of massive Twi-hard proportions all over the world. In fact, it became so bad that the couple, who is constantly photographed everywhere they go, have had to beef up their security teams just to ensure their safety from their vampire-crazed fans.

The experience, apparently, was particularly hard for the notoriously private Robert, who almost quit Hollywood because of all the craziness.

In an interview with French magazine Premiere, the British actor revealed that such was his dislike for his celebrity… that he ended up suffering from depression for two whole years. He shares:

“I went through a big time of depression between 23 and 25, I couldn’t go where I wanted to go… I was in the tabloids every day and I didn’t have access to the roles I really wanted. I wanted more, on every level.”

Rob also admitted that he had been hoping that “Twilight” would eventually get him the meatier roles that he really wanted, but it was not the case-at least not for a few years. He explains:

“I thought everything was going to be served on a plate but that’s not how it works… I finally realized that you needed to earn this change I so desperately wanted. That one way or another, you had to suffer to be able to make it.”

The “Twilight” hunk’s depression eventually lifted when he was finally offered a role on director David Cronenberg‘s drama film “Cosmopolis,” which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year.

Rob recounts:

“I saw Kristen leave to film Snow White and the Huntsman, Taylor was also doing his thing on the side, and I was just going in circles, asking myself if I was going to take a break and go back to music . . . Then one day David called and I went crazy.”

Since then, Pattinson has gotten great roles in films such as “Bel Ami,” “The Rover,” “Queen of the Desert,” and more.

KRISTEN STEWART: I Kept My “Breaking Dawn” Wedding Ring

Published November 5, 2012 by gossipzoo

Celebrity gossip websites have just learned that KRISTEN STEWART actualy kept her “Breaking Dawn” wedding ring.

Awww! How sentimental of her!

kristenrings

During the first “Breaking Dawn – Part 2” press junket, which was also the first time Kristen Stewart and boyfriend Robert Pattinson appeared together for an interview following her shocking cheating scandal in July, the actress admitted to taking home some of the props from the five “Twilight” movies-including the wedding ring from when Bella married Edward in the first “Breaking Dawn” film.

She told reporters:

“I kept the rings… The rings are really important to me. [Bella’s] mother gives her a moon ring in the beginning and [it] completely reminds me of [the first film’s director] Catherine Hardwicke every time I look at it.”

When asked if she also pocketed Bella’s wedding ring, Kristen replied:

“I have that too… Those are really, really extremely important to me. I love [them].”

JONAS BROTHERS Confirm “Wedding Bells” Is About MILEY CYRUS?

Published October 30, 2012 by gossipzoo

The JONAS BROTHERS may have confirmed to entertainment news that their new song “Wedding Bells” is about MILEY CYRUS.

We knew it!

PRN 096518

Earlier this month, Miley Cyrus told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show that she thinks that it was “pretty blatant” that the Jonas Brothers‘ single, “Wedding Bells,” was written about her by her former boyfriend in the sibling band, Nick Jonas.

The engaged singer-actress also said:

“Everyone has to write songs that are about things that they felt… So, you can’t ever hate on someone for writing about something you’ve been through.”

And in another interview with Seacrest on Monday, the boys did not deny the allegations.

Nick remained mum but his brother, Kevin, commented about Miley‘s claims:

“I think she put it well. She’s absolutely right. It’s just about being open and honest.”

Do you believe “Wedding Bells” was for Miley?

ADAM LEVINE Slams CHRISTINA AGUILERA’s Weight Bullies: “F*ck You, Grow up!”

Published October 29, 2012 by gossipzoo

ADAM LEVINE slammed CHRISTINA AGUILERA‘s body bullies recently and told them:, “F*ck you, grow up!”

See, they are friends!

TYG 0311161

Adam Levine has his fare share of comments about Christina Aguilera‘s extra weight-which she insists on showing off by wearing extremely skin-tight bandage dresses on “The Voice” -but the Maroon 5 singer is defending his soon-to-be replaced colleague from her ruthless haters.

Clearly, although the two artist mentors bicker a lot on set, there’s no real feud there.

When asked about the criticism that Aguilera continues to receive about her curvy figure, Levine said during a press event for their show last Friday:

“People shouldn’t say those kinds of things. Because, ‘F**k you.’ Come on, guys. Grow up.”

He went on to note that “people feel like they can just say nasty things about other people,” especially about celebrities.

Adam added:

“[Aguilera] gets a lot of it, which pisses me off, and of course I have her back, of course I defend her.”

Of course he probably doesn’t get much of it considering that he’s always had a perfectly toned and tattooed bod, but he is clearly aware of all the criticism thrown towards celebs. He said:

“I think it’s a really, really ugly part of our culture.”

He continued:

“It’s not cool, and I’ve never liked it… I think it’s horrible.”

We can’t agree with you more, Adam.

What can you say about him defending Christina‘s body?

JULIANNE HOUGH: RYAN SEACREST Was My “First Celebrity Crush”

Published October 26, 2012 by gossipzoo

JULIANNE HOUGH admitted to star news that her current boyfriend, RYAN SEACREST, was actually her first celebrity crush.

Lucky girl!

DGG 030683

In an interview with Us Weekly at the Fulfillment Fund Stars Gala in Beverly Hills on Wednesday, Julianne Hough revealed that her current boyfriend of two years, Ryan Seacrest, was her first crush… long before she fell “in love” with Daniel Radcliffe.

We find this a little weird considering the “Safe Haven” actress admitted to thinking he was gay and that he “wasn’t my type” before they started dating in 2010.

Nonetheless, she gushed about the “American Idol” host, who started out as a disc jockey and game show host:

“I’m kind of dating my first celebrity crush, so I feel pretty fortunate.”

It seems Seacrest is just as lucky too, having found a hardworking and multi-talented actress. Julianne revealed to Glamour in July:

“I’m a very anxious person. If I’m not working, I go crazy. I’ve been lucky in my career. But if I lost everything tomorrow — and had no money — I would somehow make it work. I have that survivor mentality because of a lot of stuff that went on in a previous life. I feel like I’ve had four lives.”

Hmm. Sounds like Ryan shouldn’t be afraid to put a ring on it…

Is Ryan your first celebrity crush too?
