Jennifer Lopez's manager wishes for less 'obsessive' suitors

Jennifer Lopez

Plenty of people are enamored with Jennifer Lopez, but the diva's talent manager wishes the "nearly obsessive" types wouldn't try to court the "American Idol" judge.

While Lopez has been enjoying life after her split from husband Marc Anthony, taking up with spirited dancer Casper Smart, her rep Benny Medina says that menfolk tend to be super into Jennifer.

"The thing that I always sort of wished is that she would give herself time to just naturally meet someone," Medina told Vogue, for which Lopez serves as cover girl, "instead of having nearly obsessive guys pursue her."

Such a J. Lo problem. But if the actress and singer shares the sentiment (or doesn't), she's not saying either way.

"He’s a good egg," she said of Smart. "I don’t want to talk about it too much. It’s my private thing."

What isn't private is video below of her stunning Vogue shoot, the annual shape issue in which Lopez flaunts her curves and a radiant glow. New love or great bronzer? Watch and decide.

Adam Scott has appreciation for Channing Tatum's backside

Adam Scott loves Channing Tatum's booty

It's so nice when Hollywood actors drop the competition and show some appreciation for each other — as "Friends With Kids" star Adam Scott has done for "21 Jump Street" actor Channing Tatum. And his backside.

"That guy looks like he was sculpted out of ivory," he says before proceeding to tell Details magazine with great gusto that adult stores should use Tatum's tush as a model for making certain sex toys. "Sorry for everything I just said," he adds.

It's OK, Adam. The Ministry won't judge; we'll just share.

Scott must be thrilled for the forthcoming movie "Magic Mike," wherein Tatum will shake that ivory rear end alongside Alex Pettyfer, Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer and Matthew McConaughey. And Adam has a thing or two going on in his own career.

Starring alongside Jon Hamm's main squeeze Jennifer Westfeldt in "Kids," Scott's on a trajectory for feature stardom in between his fan-favorite stint on "Parks and Recreation." But he's still just a dad at heart.

"Aziz [Ansari] always has to fly somewhere really awesome, do stand-up, and then hang out with some kick-ass people afterward who'll all tell him how rad he is," Scott said of his "Parks" costar.

"And I'm going to a 4-year- old’s birthday party."

Jon Hamm gets Twitter feedback from 'idiot' Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian and Jon Hamm

Jon Hamm's "Mad Men" character, Don Draper, isn't accustomed to women giving him any lip -- but this ain't the '60s and Kim Kardashian has something to say to her fellow celeb.

Hamm spoke out on cultural phenomena including Kardashian and her reality empire, specifically noting to Elle UK that, "'Whether it's Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated. Being ... [an] idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you're rewarded significantly." 

Kim isn't having it.

"I respect Jon and I am a firm believer that everyone is entitled to their own opinion and that not everyone takes the same path in life," Kardashian said in an extended post on Twitter.

"We’re all working hard and we all have to respect one another. Calling someone who runs their own businesses, is a part of a successful TV show, produces, writes, designs, and creates, 'stupid,' is in my opinion careless," she wrote.

Burn. This isn't the first time a leading man has stepped out as a Kardashian detractor. Daniel Craig got vocal a few months ago with virtually the same sentiment.

"Look at the Kardashians ... you see that and you think, 'What, you mean all I have to do is behave like a ... idiot on television and then you'll pay me millions?' " he said. 

But then again, we didn't have to tell you Kim doesn't have the best of luck with those leading men.

What do you think of Kardashian's response? Tell us in comments.

'John Carter' star Taylor Kitsch does his best James Dean

Taylor Kitsch of "John Carter" is bracing for his leading man moment

Given the scale of "John Carter," Disney's big new sci-fi offering, Taylor Kitsch has been inescapable of late.

Thankfully, he's pretty easy on the eyes. And he gives a pretty decent interview, particularly to the folks over at GQ, who worked the hard-bodied "Friday Night Lights" actor star into a fashion spread honoring James Dean.

"Dean is just an icon. Timeless. That's the kind of work you want to do as an actor. If 15, 20, 30 years after I'm gone you could turn on a movie that I've been a part of? At the end of the day, that's all you're going to have," Kitsch told the mag.

What he presently has is a ton of pressure. Kitsch has the fate of "Carter" on his back, as well as the "Battleship" gamble with costars Alexander Skarsgard and Rihanna, and finally Gus Van Sant's "Savages" opening at the end of the year.

"2012 is really make-or-break, isn't it?" he thought aloud. "Knock on wood, I hope to be doing these two franchises and to go on to do some passion stuff."

His first passion project is building his dream house in Austin, Texas. Kitsch fell in love with the city while filming "Friday Night Lights." Here's hoping America falls in love with him at the box office.

Jessica Simpson boldly goes where others have gone before: naked


Jessica Simpson has posed naked on the April cover of Elle magazine, inspired by the pose made famous by Demi Moore on the cover of Vanity Fair and a similar shot of Cindy Crawford on the cover of W.

And for when you're done staring at the "Fashion Star" mentor wearing no fashion at all, there's news as well: She and fiance Eric Johnson are expecting a girl.

"I swear, I will croak if she asks me for a pair of Nikes instead of Christian Louboutins!" Simpson told the mag. "Eric is so athletic. We're gonna have this athletic girl and I won't even be able to take her shopping, 'cause all she's gonna want is sports bras and Nikes!"

(Notes to Jessica: You still have to get through the diapers and onesies first. And we probably shouldn't say anything about allowing oneself to be styled as the twin of a woman who's going through a significant life crisis.)

As Elle tells it, here's how the magazine shoot came together: "Though mom-to-be Jessica Simpson arrived at Milk Studios in Los Angeles on a crisp January morning looking quite the fashionista in a Roberto Cavalli wrapdress, Lanvin wedges, and an oversize YSL leather bag, it quickly became clear to everyone on set that Simpson’s burgeoning belly should take center stage for the principal shot." The singer-actress-fashionista was described as "enthusiastic," reportedly discussing her pregnancy cravings after "confidently posing au naturel."

There's also a version of the cover with Simpson wearing a red dress, presumably for the more skin-shy retailers.

Jennifer Lawrence not envious of Kristen Stewart's fame

Jennifer Lawrence isn't feeling Kriste Stewart-level fame

Kristen Stewart became an undeniable franchise queen thanks to the global adoration of "The Twilight Saga," and now young Jennifer Lawrence prepares to handle the same level of attention with "The Hunger Games."

But she's not necessarily digging the fame thing.

"I look at Kristen Stewart now and I think, 'I'd never want to be that famous,' " Lawrence told Glamour UK. "I can't imagine how I'd feel if all of a sudden my life was pandemonium."

She may have to use her imagination, however, because the film adaptation of Suzanne Collins' blockbuster novel will release stateside March 23. There's already major groundswell for the flick, which costars Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson. 

The 21-year-old Kentucky native must be giving some thought to an onset of interest if the film is as big a hit as it promises to be?

"In some ways, it's a hard life, but it's a great professional life," she said. "I'm doing what I love, and then I get months and months of rest. I have a lot of money for a 21-year-old. I can't stand it when actors complain."

May the publicity odds ever be in your favor, Jennifer.

Ricky Martin opens up about marriage equality, kids

Ricky Martin smolders for Details magazineAfter shaking his his bon bon on "Glee," Ricky Martin is dancing around matters a touch more serious -- like his thoughts on gay marriage and whether he'll take that next step in his own relationship.

"It's about civil rights. I'm not telling you what to believe. I wish people understood that love manifests in different ways," Martin told Details about the equality question facing the country. 

"Allow me to have my life and I won't mess with yours," he added.

That life includes twin boys and a four-year relationship with boyfriend Carlos Gonzàlez Abella, and Martin is in no rush to tie the knot -- legal or not.

"Everybody is asking me when I'm going to get married. People that I don't know are pushing it. But it's not something that we're talking about," he said.

Forgive him if he's otherwise occupied. In addition to his kids he's bringing "Evita" back to Broadway. How does he maintain his stamina?

"I go to the gym. I do yoga. I'm a father to two toddlers, and lifting them is a workout — this is biceps, this is triceps. I also try to make love. That helps," said Martin.

Jennifer Aniston, Paul Rudd dish on marriage and babies

Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd are GQ Valentines

Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd have the perfect Valentine's Day present: a sweet and sexy magazine cover, followed by nonstop chatter about love, marriage and babies. 

Teaming up on screen again for "Wanderlust," the pair messed around with Terry Richardson for GQ magazine, indulging in pillow fights, scantily clad piano duets and some high-heeled roughhousing.  

"I think most marriages, mine included, you're constantly tending the garden, constantly working at it," Rudd mused. (He and Aniston play malcontent married yuppies looking for a new purpose in the film.)

"It's a growing, literally living thing. There's going to be growing pains, there's going to be awkward moments — your lanky phase, your pimpled phase," Aniston said of wedded bliss. "I think that's the beauty of a relationship."

And here's the beauty of an Aniston cover — inevitably the topic of pregnancy comes up! 

"The one time I do say, 'Yes! I'm pregnant!' they'll be like, 'Pfft. Right.' Anyway, I'm drawing the line on the children conversation. You heard it here. I'm not knocked up now," she said.

Gwyneth Paltrow will take her wrinkles over Botox

Gwyneth Paltrow won't turn to botox for her wrinkles
Gwyneth Paltrow makes a living on creative expression, and she intends to keep her face just as animated as she ages.

Gwyneth Paltrow covers Harper's BazaarPaltrow made the bold move of announcing she'll keep her wear and tear as the years go by, avoiding more common solutions like injections -- used widely by her actress peers. 

"I’ll take my wrinkles," she told the March issue of Harper's Bazaar. "I don’t like the Botox thing."

It seems a rite of passage lately, women of a certain age declaring their surgical intentions (to freeze or not to freeze?), but at the very least Paltrow has some consistency: in her lifestyle empire, GOOP.

"Everything I’ve done has been completely organic, and that’s why the brand is a strong brand, because there is no ulterior motive behind it," she says of the newsletter, blog and app. 

GOOP often cultivates the highest-brow experiences for everything from travel and cooking to holiday rituals and Gwyn's beloved diet cleanses. But Paltrow can't be bought, sold or injected, it seems.

Vanity Fair Hollywood issue gets fresh with Mara, Chastain

Rooney Mara, Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain and Mia Wasikowska and more cover the VF Hollywood Issue

Some lovely faces are trumpeting the approaching Oscars ceremony, thanks to Monday's unveiling of the Vanity Fair Hollywood issue, which stars fresh faces Rooney Mara, Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska and more.

Soft pastels and finger waves help the crop of young actresses bring an Old Hollywood cover tableau to life, with its extended pages featuring Elizabeth Olsen, Adepero Oduye, Shailene Woodley, Paula Patton, Felicity Jones, Lily Collins and Brit Marling.  

Among the makeup chair revelations imparted in video from the shoot was Mara's confession that she hadn't seen "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo." 

"I haven't seen it yet," she said. "I didn't watch dailies. Sometimes I'd watch playback if it would help."

Also, with fellow Oscar nominee and prolific newbie Chastain, she'd discussed the one movie they'd never switch the channel for: "Me and Jessica were just talking about 'Zoolander.' It's probably a guilty pleasure." 

Check out glam, girly video from the shoot below and tell us your thoughts on the Hollywood issue in comments.
