Hang out with Matt Damon and Ben Affleck all in the name of charity? Um, yes please.

The lucky winner is promised a stay in a 4-star Los Angeles hotel and will be VIPs at a private, star-studded event with the famous pair. Could we smell an Oscar party? Maybe the show itself? March 2 isn't too far off.

Jennifer Lawrence bares it all (almost) on Empire magazine cover

Posted by Emily Wright January 28, 2014 03:42 PM

Jennifer Lawrence is our hero. Why? Because who else could pull off nothing but blue body paint and yellow contacts.

The 23-year-old's naked-ish bod is splashed across the March cover of Empire magazine to promote her portrayal of shapeshifting Mystique in the newest "X-Men" installment, "X-Men: Days of Future Past." Lawrence first took on the role of Mystique in "X-Men: First Class" (2011).

It took seven hours each day to transform the Oscar-winner into the blue chameleon-like character, according to E!, but she won't be the only "X-Men" character to grace the mag's March issue. A slew of other "X-Men" characters, including Hugh Jackman's Wolverine and Michael Fassbender's Megneto, will be featured as well when the publication hits newsstands.

Catch the cast in the film when it hits theaters on May 23.

The controversy over Mindy Kaling's Elle magazine cover

Posted by Kristi Palma January 8, 2014 08:36 AM

Boston's Mindy Kaling graces one of four February covers of Elle magazine. But is the photo offensive? Some think so.

For the magazine's annual "Women in TV" issue, it features four different covers with four of television's top actresses -- Kaling from "The Mindy Project," Amy Poehler from "Parks and Recreation," Allison Williams from "Girls," and Zooey Deschanel from "New Girl."

Some are slamming the Kaling cover, calling it "racist" and "fat-ist" because the curvy Indian actress is shown in black and white and only from the chest up while her white fellow funny ladies show off their bodies in full color.

Jezebel tweeted this pic to show the comparison.
