EMMA WATSON Signed On For New Thriller ‘REGRESSION’

Emma Watson NYC Main

 

Since the Harry Potter franchise ended, Emma Watson has certainly been keeping busy. She’s gone back and forth between being a full-time student, filming a variety of movies, and undertaking special projects. (I mean, did you see her Wonderland guest EIC issue? Flawless.)

On the film front, Emma has stared in a handful of movies since leaving Harry Potter, including Perks of Being a Wallflower and This Is The End. Those two films were drastically different than her Hogwarts home, and it looks like she’s about to expand her horizons even further.

According to Variety, Emma has just signed on to star in the thriller Regression, which co-stars Ethan Hawke. In a statement Emma said, “I am passionate about Alejandro Amenabar [writer and director] and his work and am so happy to be collaborating with him. I’m really excited by the challenge my character presents to me as an actress… I can’t wait to begin.”

MARC ANTHONY and CHLOE GREEN Have Called It Quits

MarcAnthony+ChloeGreen

 

It looks like singer Marc Anthony has called it quits with his girlfriend of about a year, Chloe Green.

Us Weekly is reporting that the pair are “on a break” (cue the Friends jokes!) due to their busy schedules. It’s very interesting that this report is coming out now, since the pair – who have managed to stay together for about a year despite their 20 year age difference – were spotted looking quite happy on the Grammys Red Carpet a few weeks ago.

For those of you that are wondering who the heck Chloe Green is, she rose to fame in the UK as a star (for one season) on the hit-show Made In Chelsea while she was dating one of the other stars of the shoe, Ollie Locke. As with the other members of the cast, Chloe is the heiress to a huge fortune – the TopShop fortune to be exact.

OLIVIA WILDE Antica Farmacista The Flower That Never Fades

Get the Fab Obsessed Style Buzz:

Mom-to-be Olivia Wilde is obsessed with Antica Famacista, “the flower that never fades.” The aromatic diffusers are a great alternative to the traditional bouquet because these fragrances can be enjoyed for months on end. While I love a great floral arrangement, they always die on me within a week. Antica Famacista luxury home fragrance and diffusers last longer and prolong the sentiment.

To really celebrate Valentine’s day,  wish for Prosecco scented bubble bath, infusers and hand cream. How do they capture the scent of Champagne? With top notes of Satsuma citrus balance with subtle floral notes of muguet. Apricot and passionfruit complement the sweetness of sugared black currant. This is a crisp scent celebrating the sparkling effervescence of Prosecco and Champagne.

I’m a little obsessed with Manhattan, a fragrance of top notes of zesty Satsuma and bergamot citrus balance the spice and aromatic black pepper. A subtle brandied cherry note is an elegant accompaniment to the rich notes of deep cognac, vetiver, amber and bourbon.  Antica Farmacista offers this fragrance in a variety of products, including diffusers, room sprays, and candles.

TAYLOR SWIFT And CARA DELEVINGNE Join ED SHEERAN In London

TaylorSwiftEdSheeran

 

Taylor Swift – who is in London for the last few shows of her Red tour – was spotted out last night with her new besties Ed Sheeran and Cara Delevingne.

The famous trio visited the home of the US Ambassador to England, and performed a little diddy together that Taylor then posted on her Instagram account. While this may not seem like a huge deal, it is a bit surprising since Cara is a supermodel and has only been known to dabble with singing. She’s expressed an interest in getting into music and acting before, but could this outing mean that it’s actually going to happen?

(Also, Cara decided – rather oddly – to wear a nylon stocking over her head on her walk home… you can check out the goofy pics in our gallery!)

Check out the video of their performance below!

KERRY WASHINGTON Loves Marisol! Exclusive Interview

Kerry Washington Collage

Get the Fab Obsessed Style Buzz: 

Marisol is the most beautiful umbrellas under the sun, er, rain. Handcrafted in Brooklyn, the umbrellas tell a unique story. INO sat down with Miranda Leigh, the founder and designer of Marisol for an exclusive interview. In her own words, she tells a beautiful story of providing shelter under the umbrella. It’s no wonder stars like Kerry Washington are fans of her brand!

WHY AN UMBRELLA?

After learning that hundreds of thousands – some say as many as two million – women have been brutally raped in the seventeen-year-long war in the Congo, I felt a rage I’d never known.  I wanted to protect these women, to protect them and to empower them.  The umbrella is a universally recognized symbol of shelter, rest, and home.

The umbrella has ancient and glorious roots.  In Mesopotamia, China, and Egypt, the parasol functioned solely as a marker of the king’s rule and authority.  In early Etruscan art, noblewomen are depicted bearing parasols during significant rites of passage, such as marriage and the soul’s journey to the afterlife.  The nineteenth-century lady owned a parasol for every outfit, using them to protect her delicate skin from the sun. 

Marisol umbrellas come in extremely limited editions to convey the idea that each woman is unique, valuable to her society, and has a right to be treated with dignity and love.  By purchasing a Marisol umbrella, a woman is not only protecting herself and beautifying her environment, she is demonstrating her humanity by championing other, less fortunate women.  Twenty percent of net profits from the sale of each Marisol umbrella are donated to City of Joy, a transformational healing and training center in Bukavu, Eastern Congo.  drc.vday.org

WHY CITY OF JOY?

I had already been developing the umbrellas for nearly two years when I traveled to Congo to attend the opening ceremony of City of Joy in February 2011.  There, I first heard the story of a woman named Jeanne and how City of Joy came to be.

Jeanne woke up at Panzi Hospital to see Dr. Denis Mukwege and his nurses gathered around her bed, crying.  It was her second time there.  “What can we do?” they asked her.   “We can only save you physically and do not want to send you back home.  It will only happen again.” 

“You are right,” Jeanne spoke.  Touching her fingers over her head, she said, “Give us a roof, give us shelter, a place where we can be safe, and a place where we can be powerful.”  On a piece of paper, she began designing what would become City of Joy.

Women arrive at City of Joy deeply traumatized.  After six months of therapy and life skills training, they are able to stand, talk without fear, without shame, and have confidence in themselves.  Over five years, City of Joy will have graduated 1,000 women prepared to lead their country back to peace. 

I offer Marisol umbrellas in response to Jeanne’s prayer for a safe, free, and happy life.

RACHEL FREDERICKSON ‘The Biggest Loser’ Addresses Weight Loss Controversy

rachel fredericksonTwo days after being crowned the winner of ‘The Biggest Loser‘ for season 15, Rachel Frederickson is speaking out. People are worried ‘The Biggest Loser’ champ lost too much weight, slimming down from 260 lbs to 105 lbs. At 5′ 4″, that’s considered underweight. Rachel left ‘The Biggest Loser’ compound weighing 150 lbs, so she dropped 45 lbs in the three months where she did her weight loss journey on her own. So what did she do? Rachel chatted with the media in a conference call.

I followed The Biggest Loser exercise and healthy eating routine, so I actually eat five times a day because it’s better for your metabolism. I eat a protein in every meal, and then when I had down time, my butt was in the gym! I was on the spin bike, I was at the exercise classes, I was swimming in the pool, and just connecting, too, with all the people in the classes — which was my favorite part. I hid myself so much, so to be able to go to these classes and make connections with the motivation in the room, that was the best part about all of it.”

When asked about the concern that she had lost too much weight, Rachel had this to say.

I think that with my journey, I truly found the person I want to be, so it’s about the lifestyle for me. Like I said, I never felt this great and I know I’m going to feel ever better, because this life is just so open to me and I can’t wait to take charge, because that’s what I gained back. It’s confidence, it’s assuredness of myself to just take charge and conquer this life.”

Hmmm… do you think Rachel sounds a bit coached? She was pressed on what she actually ate to lose all of that weight. Here was her response:

Yeah, you know, I ate 1,600 calories. That’s what my budget was from the support system that I had at The Biggest Loser. So they give us our calorie budget.”

Something tells me Rachel may have dipped a little below her calorie budget. Then again, she’s a former competitive swimmer, so she may have trained really hard, too. The opportunity to win $250K isn’t something to be taken lightly. Hopefully she’s healthy: that’s what’s key. Vote in INO’s polls and tell us what you think about all of this!

MARIO LOPEZ Trusts His Hair to Nioxin

Mario Lopez

Get the Fab Obsessed Beauty Buzz:

Thinning hair isn’t just a problem for the men. Even ladies can use a little plumping of our hair lines, and NIOXIN has created the solution. NIOXIN, the #1 Stylist Choice for thinning hair, is a fusion of  Niacinamide, Panthenol and Caffeine.  It is proven to increase the diameter of each existing hair strand, penetrate hair and make it fuller and more manageable, and strengthen hair resilience against breakage.

The products sounds a little too good to be true, so INO put Diamax to the test. Diamax is a best selling NIOXIN product. Apply to clean hair and do not rinse out. After one use, hair felt fuller. After a week, it seems like there was more hair at the scalp.  Diamax exceeded our expectations!

Extra TV host Mario Lopez, was impressed, too! He recently signed on to be the NIOXIN brand ambassador. When asked why he became a representative for NIOXIN, he responded that he uses the product. Hard to imagine A.C. Slater with thinning hair, but apparently, stress causes Lopez to lose his luscious locks.

NIOXIN is available at fine salons. To find a salon near you, visit http://www.nioxin.com

JAKE GYLLENHAAL Hot New Trailer: ‘Enemy’


Get THE Screen Obsessed Movie Buzz:

Jake Gyllenhaal has a new movie coming out! It’s called ‘Enemy.’ Basically Jake gets to play a dual role in this one. He plays an introverted professor who discovers there is an actor who looks just like him. Somehow this turns into something very creepy, but that’s where the trailer kind of loses me. I can see where this would be surprising and weird, but why is it as spooky as ‘Enemy’ makes it out to be? Does the professor decide to take over the actor’s life or something?

I’ve noticed that the early trailers for movies tend to tell a lot less than the ones that come out closer to the actual release date. I’m sure a new trailer will come along that explains the “scary” factor here. I’m definitely interested enough to look out for the next trailer!

GEORGE CLOONEY Jokes About Gwyneth Paltrow – Vanity Fair “Feud”

george clooney (1)george clooney (1)Here’s George Clooney, looking very suave with his scarf, making his way into the Ed Sullivan Theater for a sit-down on ‘The Late Show with David Letterman.’ He’s one of the actors on the cover of Vanity Fair’s annual Hollywood issue. When talking about the photo shoot in an interview, he managed to slip in a joke about Gwyneth Paltrow’s “feud” with the magazine. (Just in case you missed it: Gwyneth was upset about a feature Vanity Fair was planning to run about her, without her consent, and reportedly sent her Hollywood pals an email asking them not to cooperate with the article or agree to appear in the magazine ever again.) When asked how George felt about appearing on the Vanity Fair cover, he said:

“It’s very exciting. I think it’s going to be fun. That’s what Gwyneth Paltrow told me to say.”

Oh, OUCH- lol. Julia Roberts, who was sitting beside him for the interview, looked pretty shocked. Here’s a behind-the-scenes video of the Vanity Fair shoot. I’m just thrilled about the diversity on the cover this year!
