  • Jessica Biel Shares 'Magical' Motherhood Moment

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 1 day ago

    Describing the best thing about motherhood (so far, anyway), the Total Recall star didn't hesitate.

    "Probably the moment he wakes up from a nap," she told E! Online. "He's sort of looking around and you sort of creep up and look over the crib and he looks up and he goes [Biel lets out a big sighing sound]. Just a gummy mouth, no teeth, just a big smile, happy that you're alive and you're just looking at him. That's probably the most magical."

    But like so many special moments, however, this one doesn't usually last too long.

    "You quickly move on from it because there's a dirty diaper in your palm," the 33-year-old mused at the celebration for the latest collection of Bare, an eco-accessories line she launched with her brother, Justin Biel, and designer Grason Ratowsky. (The line doesn't yet offer a diaper bag — possibly because Ratowsky isn't keen on the word "diaper" — so Biel is hunting for a new name to encourage the designer to embrace the mommy must-have.)

  • Daniel Craig Has a Lot to Say About Booze

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 3 days ago

    Daniel Craig likes his martinis. Well, actually, it's unclear how he likes his martinis, but he definitely likes his booze. The James Bond vet recently opened up about his drinking preferences, preferred recovery method, and why he's over the bar scene. (Hint: It's not really by choice.)

    Craig came to the subject in a rather roundabout way, when director Martin McDonagh was conducting an interview for DuJour magazine and asked him about whether he knows before the cameras start rolling where he'll be filming when he plays 007. It turns out he doesn't, but he did mention that the last Bond flick was shot in Mexico City.

    "It ended up being one of my favorite cities I've ever been to," he said. "But you can get into an awful lot of trouble there." When the In Bruges helmer asked Craig if he was referencing the abundance of tequila, the 47-year-old star replied, "Anything you f---ing want!"

  • Sarah Silverman Pays Homage to Her Mom, Who Passed Away Last Week

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 4 days ago

    It's a sad time for Sarah Silverman, as the comedienne's mother, Beth Ann O'Hara, has died at 73. On Monday, Silverman — the youngest of five children — took to Twitter to share a touching tribute to her late mom.

    "Wednesday morning my Mom died," the 44-year-old star wrote. "She was a know-it-all in overalls & two different colored socks. And defiantly, no bra."

    Then Silverman's message took a more serious turn. "The woman who, when I was little, gave me detailed directions to a restaurant ladies room then secretly watched as I found my way to it on my own," she recalled before adding, "The woman who went back to college at 42, and skinny dipped in ponds, and told me never to protect myself from a broken heart because it was so very worth the pain to get to experience love."

    Alongside the heartfelt message, Silverman posted a throwback shot of O'Hara clad in a pair of those famed overalls and flashing a brilliant smile.

    It certainly seems that O'Hara touched many lives and even though she is gone, she will not be forgotten.

  • Selena Gomez Opens Up About Justin Bieber, Purity Rings, and Why She Took Hers Off

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 5 days ago

    The days of Jelena are long gone — for Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber, that is. For the rest of the world, one quick search can make it seem like the two young superstars are still attached at the hip.

    "It's difficult for people to separate us," Gomez mused to the U.K.'s Sunday Times . "The internet wants to freeze this moment in time and constantly repeat it."

    The 23-year-old pop princess isn't one bit surprised by the fact that people have a hard time letting go of this now-defunct love story, however. In fact, she seems relatively at peace with this state of affairs. "I didn't think I was doing anything bad by falling in love," she explained rather matter-of-factly of her tumultuous relationship with the Biebs, which began sometime in 2010. "There's such an emphasis on people being the perfect thing and then destroying them because it's good press."

    She also didn't think their youth helped things much. "Throw in the fact that you are a teenager — it makes it more difficult," she said. (It's hard to argue with her there.)

  • Michelle Rodriguez Talks Violence in Video Games and What Would Happen If You Hurt Her Mother

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 8 days ago

    Michelle Rodriguez is exactly as you'd imagine her to be, and then some. Though the 37-year-old actress has cultivated an image of being a bit of a bad girl who can hang with the boys, she isn't some adrenaline junkie with no time for deep thinking. In fact, she works in some of her best quality quiet time while she's dominating first-man shooter video games (like Call of Duty: Black Ops III , which she especially loves for its "bad-a-- chick avatars" who stand apart from female characters of games past).

    Rodriguez "blames" her brother, who studied computer engineering, for getting her hooked on video games when she was still rather young. "He introduced me to Doom and that opened me up to that whole world," she explained to Yahoo. "I'm not a big fan of fantasy stuff, but if you give me a first man shooter, I really get turned on."

    And yes, her love of this virtual world has definitely influenced her career. "The other video game I really got into was Resident Evil . That's why I was a part of the movie. I called the director and I was like, 'Yo, dude, hook it up!'" she recalled with a laugh.

  • Britney Spears Brings Her A Game to Teen Choice 2015, Plus 4 Other Memorable Moments

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 13 days ago

    The Teen Choice Awards give Hollywood A-listers the chance to let down their hair, shorten their skirts, and thank all the young fans who helped them get onto that list in the first place — and no one knows how to make the most of an award show better than Britney Spears. So it came as no surprise that the newly single singer, who has been a mainstay at Teen Choice pretty much since its inception way back before the millennium (in 1999), turned heads during her time on stage.

    While it's true that the Aug. 16 ceremony was, by some standards, rather tame, it still packed in plenty of memorable moments (both Britney-related and not) — which is why we've rounded up five of the best and brightest for you here...

  • Kristen Stewart Opens Up About Her Sexuality — but Refuses to Define It

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 17 days ago

    To say that Kristen Stewart isn't one to mince words might be the understatement of the year. Instead, she gives it to you straight in a way that still feels a bit indirect. When asked point-blank about her sexuality, the 25-year-old actress didn't miss a beat.

    "Google me, I'm not hiding," she quipped to Nylon magazine.(If you follow her advice, however, a slew of conflicting reports will pop up that, combined, point to nothing in particular.)

    "If you feel like you really want to define yourself, and you have the ability to articulate those parameters and that in itself defines you, then do it," she argued. "But I am an actress, man. I like in the f---ing ambiguity of this life and I love it. I don't feel like it would be true for me to be like, 'I'm coming out!'" But she hardly thinks that she's alone in this situation.

    "I do a job. Until I decide that I'm starting a foundation or that I have some perspective or opinion that other people should be receiving… I don't. I'm just a kid making movies," she reasoned.

     

  • Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry Talk Not Making It to Jennifer Aniston's Wedding

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 18 days ago

    Not all of Jennifer Aniston's Friends were invited to her wedding to Justin Theroux! It turns out Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry didn’t make the cut to attend the top-secret nuptials at the couple's Bel Air mansion on August 5.

    "I wasn't invited. So what can you do?" 45-year-old Perry told People when asked how he felt about not being included in the fete. He went on to admit that the event "was a surprise" to him, but was quick to (diplomatically) add, "They're a lovely couple and I'm happy for them."

  • Ireland Baldwin Admits She 'Neglected, Manipulated, and Lied' to People During Battle With Anxiety

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 23 days ago

    Ireland Baldwin is putting her heart on her sleeve. The 19-year-old model, who checked into rehab for "emotional trauma" in April, took to InstagramWednesday to open up about her struggle with anxiety and her determination to move past it.

    "There are so many moments I have taken for granted in this life due to my lack of presence. I have overlooked countless blessings and opportunities to start fresh, and I have neglected, manipulated, and lied to the people I hold dear to my heart, but more importantly, to myself," she confessed. "It hasn't been until recent months that I relearned what it truly means and what it feels like to be fully present. For the longest time, I lost compassion towards almost everything I previously cared for and I was so lost in darkness, that I could hardly hold a real conversation with another human being long enough before I was due to have an anxiety attack and find my way out of it."

    Her message came alongside a snapshot of (what appears to be) her legs in front of a stunning beachfront sunset.

  • A Look at Elon Musk's Rocky Romantic History

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 24 days ago

    Elon Musk has achieved many things. He founded PayPal, Tesla, and SpaceX. He landed a spot on Kanye West's cultural radar. He's made (literally) billions of dollars. But one thing he's never seemed to master is his love life — and now, the 44-year-old mogul has made a U-turn yet again, reportedly changing his mind about divorcing his current wife, Talulah Riley (whom he previously divorced and subsequently remarried)… again.

    But let's start at the beginning of his romantic history.

    Shortly after they wed, Musk sold PayPal to eBay, which brought his net worth to somewhere over $100 million. The couple was married for nine years and share five sons together.

    It's worth noting that Musk's divorce and the beginning of his relationship with Riley weren't the only big changes he faced in 2008. Although he became involved in Tesla Motors in 2004, he assumed the role of CEO and product architect of the company following the financial crisis.
