2013-02-01 02:50:27: Marion Cotillard Accepts Her Harvard Hasty Pudding Award

Marion Cotillard was in Cambridge, Massachusetts today to accept her Harvard Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year award with a parade. The celebratory ride through Cambridge was followed by a roast, where Marion received a traditional pudding pot. The honor went to Claire Danes last year, and their honorary male recipient will be named at a later date and recognized on Feb. 8.

Marion was also celebrated on the red carpet earlier this month. Marion attended the SAG Awards in an eye-catching blue and white Dior silk gown. Though Marion was nominated for outstanding performance by a female actor for her role in Rust and Bone, the best actress honor went to Silver Linings Playbook star Jennifer Lawrence. Marion nonetheless has a seal of approval from her husband Guillaume Canet. Marion and Guillaume kissed at The Grove last week while they shopped with their adorable 1-year-old son, Marcel.

She snapped photos with her phone while splashing in the waves and relaxing on a chaise. Alessandra posted her self-taken bikini snaps on Instagram, including a shot of shells in the water and one of herself tanning her legs. Once she was done taking pictures, Alessandra cooled off by taking a dip and playing with a dog. Although Alessandra's photo-worthy bikini session wasn't part of a planned photo shoot, she later took to the waves in a few more two-piece suits and poses for an upcoming Victoria's Secret campaign. Candice Swanepoel also wore a bikini while working her Angel magic for the camera in St. Barts this week.

2013-01-31 23:54:45: Beyoncé Sings the National Anthem at Her Super Bowl Press Conference!

Beyoncé Knowles gave the public a sneak peek of her Super Bowl halftime performance with a press conference in New Orleans earlier today. At the start of the Q&A, Beyoncé entered the stage in a white sing the National Anthem live. Beyoncé didn't stray from addressing the Inauguration controversy during the press conference, answering multiple questions about her lip-synching. She said, "I am a perfectionist and one thing about me I practice until my feet bleed and I did not have time to rehearse with the orchestra [at the Inauguration]. It was a very important, emotional show for me. Due to the weather, due to the delay, due to no proper soundcheck, I didn't feel comfortable [performing live]. It's very common in the music industry to sing with a prerecorded track and I am very proud of my performance." As for her halftime performance, Beyoncé told the press that she will "absolutely" sing live. She added, "This is what I was born to do."

There had been lots of speculation leading up to the press conference that Beyoncé would reunite with Destiny's Child onstage for a special performance. She didn't say outright that the group would be performing together at the NFL Championship but she didn't exactly deny that they were joining up together again. When asked about the reunion, Beyoncé laughed, "I can't really give you any details." However, she did note that recording a new track with the group for their new release, Love Songs made her "feel like a teenager again." Beyoncé later changed into a bright red dress and gold heels for a second interview with ESPN correspondents Rich Eisen and Deion Sanders. She answered more questions about the big game and even showed off some dance moves with the hosts.

2013-01-31 22:59:48: Nicholas Hoult on Warm Bodies, X-Men, and How He'd Survive a Zombie Outbreak

Nicholas Hoult takes on leading man status in Warm Bodies, but he's actually not playing a man - he's playing a zombie. Hoult stars as R, a zombie who falls for human Julie (Teresa Palmer) and does his best to win her over. I recently sat down with Hoult at the film's press day in LA, where we discussed the trials and tribulations of playing the undead, and how he'd fare in the event of an actual zombie apocalypse. He also compared his zombie makeup to that of his costume in X-Men: First Class. Check out the interview before Warm Bodies hits theaters on Feb. 1.

Thank You, Liz Lemon, for Being You

Thank You, Liz Lemon, for Being You

By Madeleine Davies

Thank You, Liz Lemon, for Being YouToday marks the series finale of 30 Rock, which, over its past seven seasons, has become and continues to be one of the best and most unique sitcoms on television to date. 30 Rock is remarkable thanks in no small part to its brilliant and absurdist humor, but it's real heart has always been Tina Fey's Liz Lemon. Introduced to us in an era where plenty of women were still identifying as a "Carrie" or a "Samantha," Liz presented an alternative female archetype for us to identify with — a self-righteous, feminist comedy writer who loved her job and meatball subs more than she could ever love a pair of $700 shoes. Liz was smart, funny and occasionally mean. She was obsessed with Star Wars and went to college on a partial competitive jazz dance scholarship. Though successful, she was also a complete mess. In other words, Liz was a legitimate girl weirdo — a type that exists in abundance in the real world (sort of), but is rarely seen in movies and on television.

And for that we owe her a huge thank you.

We learned early on in 30 Rock that Liz's sharp wit and sense of humor was developed in part as a defense mechanism to cloak her abundant insecurities. Sure, it might be nice to see a woman on TV who's fully confident and self possessed, but there was something even nicer about seeing a woman who sought validation not in others, but in her own intelligence — even if doing so often was the basis for the show's jokes. Truth is that being the smartest person in the room can be alienating especially if a) you remind people of it constantly, and b) you're a woman. Liz Lemon was never afraid to call out that double standard, even when, as was often the case, her bullheadedness was slightly misplaced.

The fact that Liz could be so hypocritical and misguided gave many of us (particularly those of us from white, middle class and educated backgrounds) the chance to glance inward and put things in perspective. Maybe we were actually the mean girls in high school and not, as we previously thought, the dejected nerds. Maybe, despite how many NPR tote bags we own, our opinions on sexism, race and class still come from a place of selfishness and privilege. ("Tracy took advantage of my white guilt," Liz said back in season one. "Which is supposed to only be used for good. Like overtipping and supporting Barack Obama!") The fact that Liz could get us to relate to her and then force us to question ourselves — and laugh while doing it — says so much for the character and 30 Rock's writing.

People often complained about Liz's lack of interest and occasional squeamishness about sex, but a broader spectrum of women's sexuality — or lack thereof, depending on the individual — is certainly needed in media. The fact is that there are some women out there who, like Liz, didn't lose their virginity until they were 25 (or older), are disinterested in hook-up culture and find it equally (if not more) satisfying to stay up late playing Uno and eating Sabor de Soledad as they do getting busy. This type of woman — the Liz Lemon type — deserves to be represented just as much as her more promiscuous counterparts. (Besides, if it's a sexually expressive female that you want, look no further than 30 Rock's own Jenna Maroney.)

While Liz faced the usual bullshit societal pressures that all women face, she always managed to handle them in her own unique way. Yes, she felt the need to find "the one" (a term invented by Lemon's mentor Jack Donaghy) and get married in a white dress, but when she finally does it, she ends up wearing a Princess Leia costume. Sure, she wanted to have babies, but when that ends up happening, it happens non traditionally and unexpectedly. Crazy, dorky, neurotic Liz can have it all (and so can crazy, dorky, neurotic you), but all doesn't look nearly like she thought it would. And yet she rolls with it.

Best of all, Liz Lemon is, for the most part, completely accepting — though not always comfortable — with who she is. While she may get occasionally jealous of Cerie or Jenna, in the end, she's is more than comfortable being herself. Beyond that, she seems to like who she is so much that it's almost impossible for her to change, which is fine because Liz is awesome. She's the type who can yell at her male boss and put him in his place, she's the type who goes to bat for her friends, she's the type who goofs around by pretending that a toy train is her robot penis and will wolf down entire sandwich in front of a TSA agent so she doesn't have to throw it away before going through security.

While it's sad to see Liz go, we can at least take comfort in knowing how she made some of us real-life female weirdos feel, for a full seven seasons, like we had a home on television.

2013-01-31 19:41:15: Miley Cyrus Works Out in a Bikini And Covers Up With Polka Dots

Miley Cyrus got in a bit of exercise during her vacation in Costa Rica earlier this month by doing yoga on the beach while wearing a bikini. She also covered up her black two-piece with a polkadot dress when she strolled out on the sand. Miley went on a family vacation with fiancé Liam Hemsworth and his brother Chris Hemsworth a few weeks ago. It wasn't all about staying fit - Miley and Liam got romantic on the beach too.

It was rumored that Miley and Liam got married in a secret ceremony while on vacation. Stories of a spontaneous wedding have been rampant in recent months. Fans got excited when Miley referred to Liam as her "hubby" in an interview with Cosmopolitan, and pictures of the duo wearing bands on their ring fingers around Christmas also fueled flames. However, Miley and Liam are not married yet, and their trip to Costa Rica appears to have just been a relaxing vacation, not a destination wedding.
