Have I been in suspended animation for 20 years? Because that girl Winona Ryder has NOT AGED.
Appearing in Interview
, the 41-year-old babe of our lives looks exactly like her old Heathers
self, laying on expensive furniture in expensive clothes with an expensive looking haircut.
Look at that skin! Is this woman a witch? WAS THIS
Look, I'm not usually in the business of saying "She looks so young! She looks so old! Let's talk about the way everyone looks and decide if it's OK!". And really, I'd love Winona no matter what she looked like. But I cannot.stop.looking.at.these.photos.
I need to lie down.

Janelle Monae and Erykah Badu did a song together and it rules.
The video for "Q.U.E.E.N." takes place in the Living History Museum, where legendary rebels are frozen for observation by future generations. Someone puts a record on, and suddenly Janelle and Erykah come to life! And they sing about feminism! And dance like bosses! And wear wigs!
So Ben Kingsley. He won an Oscar for Sexy Beast
, has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and was knighted by the Queen. He seems like a pretty OK guy, right?
Wrong! Well, maybe.
Ben Kingsley, or The Kings, seems to have a rare free pass when it comes to playing characters of different races. Everyone still cringes when they see Mickey Rooney's performance as I.Y. Yunioshi in Breakfast at Tiffany's
and if you're going to go blackface (and aren't Robert Downey Junior in Tropic Thunder/on Hey, Hey It's Saturday!) you'll basically never work again.
But The Kings (who has an English mother and Indian father) has managed to play a Jewish-German accountant
, a Persian prince
and a Chinese super villain called 'The Mandarin'
. And that apparently is TOTALLY FINE.
Why is that The Kings gets a free pass to play any race that he feels like, but no one else does? We're not complaining, its just got us curious.
Our brothers and sisters in New Zealand have kicked off their jandals and filled up the chilly bin, because this week a joyous celebration is taking place! You've probably heard by now that on Wednesday NZ parliament legalised gay marriage
, a massive step for marriage equality in Australia and the international community.
They're happy, we're happy and to be honest, in these times of doom and gloom it's really nice to have something to be stoked about.
It's 2013, and Courtney Love is still getting work. Can we all reflect on that for a second? As part of Saint Laurent's (R.I.P YSL) Music Project, celebrity photography Heidi Slimane has captured Love and Sonic Youth frontwoman Kim Gordan in fancy French threads.
The pictures are nice, the clothes are nice, Courtney wears a crown and Kim scowls. Is it 1994 already? (We wish.)

French actress Léa Seydoux is your new crush. The French actress (who you may remember from Midnight in Paris
) appears in the Wes Anderson/Roman Coppola directed Prada Candy l'Eau
, a short film for Prada's new perfume. She's blonde, cute and seemingly everyone in the film wants her well-scented babies.
Structured in three episodes, the first introduces us to Candy and a battle between two friends to win her heart. I think we're meant to think that deliciousness of Prada's perfume has prompted this sexy conundrum, but let's face it, we want Léa too.
