  • Nikki Reed Takes Her Animal Activism to the Next Level

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 1 hr ago

    Nikki Reed is heading to Washington! Or, at least, Sacramento.

    Dressed in a smart suit with her hair pulled back, the Twilight alum, 26, took a trip to the State Capitol in California this week to testify for Assembly Bill 147. Reed argued that " animals used for science should not be discarded," and that cats and dogs should be allowed to be adopted after they've been tested on.

    "The cruelty that they endure being used for research purposes is harsh enough," she shared on Instagram. "Let's not further the abuse by claiming that rescues are not equipped to help them live out the rest of their lives peacefully."

    Reed documented her trip on the social media site.

    " Standing in front of The Capitol before I testify with Emma, a survivor from a San Francisco testing facility. The holes in her ears are a testament to the horror she endured #AB147," she captioned the below snapshot.

    The actress testified with Assembly member Matt Dababneh, and between the two of them, they got the bill passed.

    We're guessing Nikki and Ian are going to have a lot of furry guests at their wedding.

  • Benji Madden Is Like Totally Buggin' Without Cameron

    Robert Kessler at Yahoo Celebrity 2 hrs ago

    Currently in Australia working as a judge on their version of The Voice , Benji Madden is half a world away from his new wife, Cameron Diaz. And it seems like he's sort of losing it.

    "Rule #1," he captioned this photo on Instagram. "When you're away from home working and you meet a puppy, always take pics to send to Bae."

    Alright, well, that sounds like a very specific rule, but whatever works.

    Madden and Diaz were married at her home in Beverly Hills on January 5 after dating for about eight months, so a little cheesiness is to be expected. But, dude, get a grip.

    Madden also showed off his new tattoo, the word "Cameron" on his chest, on Instagram just last week.

    The dogstagram was not Madden's only shot dedicated to his wife. Just an hour later, Madden shared another shot of himself, this one with the caption, "Good morning Hunny."

    Cameron Diaz has not used Instagram since September 2014.

  • Adam Driver Poses Shirtless But Insists He's Just an Average Guy

    Given his career trajectory of late, it's kind of tough to accept Adam Driver as just an average dude, but alas, it's the truth. He just wants to sit down, unwind, and unleash his inner older man without being followed out of a store.

    The Girls star, 31, took off his shirt and chatted with V Man— the for-dudes counterpart to V magazine — about his averageness and more in a juicy interview, which also happened to be peppered with these intense photos. Try your best not to get too hot and bothered, because he's probably not very comfortable with our ogling.

    "I value privacy and it's impossible to say that without sounding like a total asshole," he admitted. "Losing anonyminity is a real thing and it makes your job difficult because when you are what people are looking at, you start thinking about yourself as opposed to taking things in. And selling who you are as a person doesn't make sense to me."

    But despite the fact that he's obviously uncomfortable with all of the attention that coincides with fame, he tries to use his his public image for the better.

    What does it take to land Kristen Stewart?

    The new CR Fashion Book issue features the Chanel muse, who is fittingly photographed by Karl Lagerfeld. In it, Stewart, 24, talks about her type and what she finds attractive in a partner.

    “For me, the most attractive thing in a person is drive – genuine, impulse expressed for the sake of it, not for perception,” the Still Alice actress says. “I think that’s hot.”

    The need to create "is a compulsion and I share that," she continues. "I do not approach my life tactfully at all… I'm incredibly impulsive and I am definitely an intense weirdo. I love living and I love people. They trip me out and I want to know more about them all the time. That isn't something I can turn off and on."

    Considering she's a celebrity, Stewart has to choose the people she lets in her circle carefully (romantically and otherwise).

    Kim Kardashian shares almost everything with the world, including her hard-earned svelte figure and chic wardrobe personally approved by her husband, Kanye West. However, she's just revealed that, in her younger years, she suffered silently with quite the beauty conundrum.

    "I have the hairiest forehead you could ever imagine," the selfie queen told People. "And I would always break out and get all cracky on my forehead just from all the hair that I had."

  • Patricia Arquette on Not Straightening Teeth: I Didn't Want to Look Perfect

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 19 hrs ago

    Following her big win, the Boyhood actress, 46, talked to People about the pressure Hollywood places on women.

    "I've had so many of these conversations in my life... what I look like on film, what I don't look like on film. What are we supposed to look like? Men are not having these conversations," Arquette told the mag. "It's like we're trapped in wet wool or something. I just want to be free of it so we can move to the next level as equals."

    She continued, "Not that I don't love being a woman, not that I don't love the differences between men and women. I just mean, as an actor – why is this a conversation? Why is aging a conversation? It's a one-sided conversation because it's only ever had by women."

    One physical attribute of Arquette's she says was scrutinized at a young age were her teeth. Patricia, who falls in the middle of siblings Rosanna and David Arquette, said she told her parents she didn't want braces or her teeth straightened because "it didn't feel like it would fit who I was inside."

    Bobbi Kristina, the only daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, turned 22 today and remains in a medically induced coma. It has been over a month since she was found unresponsive in a bathtub.

    "Today is Bobbi Kristina's 22nd birthday and we ask you to continue to keep her in your prayers as she is still fighting the battle of her life," Patricia Houston, president of Whitney Houston's estate, wrote in a statement alongside the above photo.

    A criminal investigation has been opened, and according to reports, police have had a lot of questions for Bobbi Kristina's boyfriend Nick Gordon. His cooperation has been inconsistent.

    Gordon, who has been at odds with Bobby Brown over visitation, posted a birthday message on Twitter.

    Happy Birthday baby I wish I was there with you to hold you and be by your side

  • Those Crazy Photos Lena Dunham Keeps Posting Are AcroYoga

    Mallory Schlossberg at Yahoo Celebrity 23 hrs ago

    If you've been following Lena Dunham's Instagram feed, you know that she's been accomplishing a pretty impressive feat lately — other than, you know, writing, acting, and producing one of the buzziest shows on television.

    The Girls auteur has taken up AcroYoga, and she's good at it, too! In fact, she recently posted a third trippy photo of herself in AcroYogic action on Instagram, showing off her flexibility and balancing skills.

    "For today's addition, smiling sideways on the 6'7 @acropediaorg!" she wrote. "Yes, we are utilizing an empty bar in the morning (long story, kids.)" We should reiterate for her: This photo is not turned 90 degrees, Lena is.

    Before that, she posted a photo of herself upside down, balancing on her partner.

    "The journey continues," she wrote. "I haven't been in this position since sophomore year! Hyuck yuck yuck @kohayoga."

    We won't ask about her sophomore year, but we're sure it's a good story. How she wound up in this position is also probably a good one.

    Mallory Schlossberg at Yahoo Celebrity 1 day ago

    #TBT came early this week with a real gem of a vintage photo. Libor Jany, a reporter for Minneapolis's Star Tribune , dug upan old photo of Prince from his junior high basketball days.

    And it's pretty amazing. Just check out that hair!

    Another Prince-related clip from the Strib archives, looking back at his hooping days at Bryant Junior High.

    Jany also tweetedthis newspaper clip, which cites that Prince — long before he began his explosive career crooning super sexed-up R&B jams — was a stellar basketball player, even though he was on the shorter side. 

    From the Strib archives: Chappelle was right.


  • Have $9,000 to Burn? Here's What to Do If You Rent Leonardo DiCaprio's Palm Springs Home

    Mallory Schlossberg at Yahoo Celebrity 1 day ago

    If you've ever wanted to live like a member Leonardo DiCaprio's posse (yes, that one), now's your chance. The star essentially has turned his deluxe Palm Springs estate into the planet's most expensive Airbnb. Now, you can rent outthe Donald Wexler-designed Dinah Shore Estate at 432 Hermosa for a cool $4,500 a night with a two night minimum.

    According to the estate's rental website, the fancy schmancy abode has six bedrooms and seven and a half bathrooms, a deluxe chef's kitchen, a maid service, a heated pool and spa, a one bedroom guest house for a miscellaneous family, a cocktail bar, and — perhaps mostly importantly — WiFi, so you can blog about your experience staying at the resort-like home while you're there.

    The highly confidential transaction made sense given the high-profile buyer. No sole individual would want to be responsible for accidentally giving randos on the Internet access to Leo's abode. But now, assuming you feel like draining your 401k, you  can visit!

    So what should you do when you're there? Here are few a suggestions for your $9,000 mini-vacation:
