Zooey Deschanel Explains What Happens When She Films on the Same Lot as Her Sister Emily

Zooey Deschanel and her sister Emily Deschanel are very close for Hollywood siblings. In fact, quite literally. The actress-singer appeared on Late Night on Thursday, where she revealed that not only is the New Girl set and the Bones set on the same lot, but sometimes they get the same fashionwire.com/celebrity-fashion” target=”_self”>celebrity visitors.

Deschanel—who looked lovely as always, in her signature style—shared a story with host Seth Meyers in which basketball great Kobe Bryant stopped by the New Girl set, much to her surprise. “It was kinda weird, because I wouldn’t have guessed that he would be our audience,” she said. But, as it turned out, Bryant was visiting a few sets that day, including the Bones set, where her sister films nearby.

While Meyers cracked that Bryan initially got the “wrong” Deschanel during his trip to the lot, the actress had a different theory about why the athlete visited both of them: “I like these Deschanels so much, I’m going to visit the other set … it’s one convenient location!”

October 29, 2014 @ 8:10 am

Happy 43rd birthday, Winona Ryder! The Minnesota native left a mark with her roles in Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands and shortly graduated into more mature characters in films such as Dracula, The Age of Innocence (for which she won a Best Supporting Role Golden Globe), and Girl, Interrupted.

It’s Katy Perry’s 30th Birthday! See Her Transform from High School Freshman to Pop Queen

October 25, 2014 @ 8:10 am

Born Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, the wildly personable and international pop icon Katy Perry rings in the big 3-0 today, but that’s not all the singer has to celebrate.

Since her introductory days into the music industry as a gospel singer (adorable, right?), the “Roar” songstress has solidified her place among the best-selling artists of all time after her Teenage Dream album became the first by a female artist to produce five No. 1 songs in a row. All in a day’s work for Katy Perry, but that’s what you’d expect from an artist who has sold more than 72 million digital singles, which made her the best-selling digital singles artist in the U.S. earlier this year. And as if you aren’t already impressed, Katy added Twitter tycoon to her already extensive list of accolades when she became the first person to hit 50 million followers, which broke the Guinness World Record for most Twitter followers and officially inspired us to step up our social-media game.

Ever the daring, fashion-forward trendsetter, word on the street is Katy is in the market to produce her own fashion brand, a move that will surely send every Katy Cat clamoring for a piece of the “Firework” singer’s audacious style. Speaking of which, we can’t wait to see what crowd-pleasing fashion liberties she will take when she headlines the 2015 Super Bowl XLIX halftime show on Feb. 1.

Is there anything this superwoman can’t do? Katy Perry for president! Just kidding, but really.

Kat Dennings Recalls Her Childhood Goth Phase and Addams Family Obsession

It’s fitting that Two Broke Girls star Kat Dennings stopped by Conan on Wednesday, considering that day of the week was the very name she used to go by. The actress admitted to host Conan O’Brien that, during her childhood goth phase she was obsessed with The Addams Family, particularly the character Wednesday Addams.

Dennings—who fittingly wore a gothic-inspired black minidress featuring lace and zipper accents—said that she not only believed she was Wednesday Addams as a child, but that she would introduce herself to strangers as such.

Keeping in tune with trend this week of having guests show adorably awkward childhood photos, the actress shared a pic of herself as a kid, decked out in a full cape and makeup one particular Halloween. “I was so into it!” Dennings recalled.

How Portia de Rossi Went from Being a Scandal Super Fan to Star

Portia de Rossi, just like the rest of us, is totally obsessed with Scandal. But the difference is, she gets to experience the ultimate dream come true for any fan since she now appears on the drama. The actress stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! where she discussed, among other things (including those ever-persistent baby rumors), how she lobbied hard to be on the series.

“I hounded [Scandal creator] Shonda Rhimes,” de Rossi said. “She took a meeting with me, which was so exciting to get to be in the same room with her and talk about her amazing, amazing shows.” When de Rossi didn’t immediately hear back from Rhimes, she expected she didn’t get a part, but eventually she got a fateful call from her agent (which she hilariously misinterpreted at first to be “scandal news” instead of “Scandal news”) and the rest is television history.

The actress, who rocked the ever-stylish crop, also discussed how her character’s arc is a “little open ended … I’m doing everything I can do stay alive!” Watch the entire Scandal chat here, including de Rossi telling a very funny anecdote about forgetting her character’s name at her first table read:

It’s the Great Collaboration Charlie Brown! Coach Partners With the Peanuts Gang

Unlike Linus’s Great Pumpkin (which happens to air tonight at 8:30 p.m. ET on ABC), this news is 100-percent real: As the first installment in a series of limited-edition collections that celebrate Coach‘s American heritage, the luxury leather goods brand has given its handbags a dash of cartoon-like playfulness with Charles M. Schulz’s famous comic strip sketches embossed on satchels, totes, and duffels.

“Coach has for so many years been an American institution so it seems fitting to honor that heritage with iconography that captures moments in American pop culture,” says Coach creative director Stuart Vevers. “Peanuts and Snoopy were a rite of passage for a generation and continue to be so emotive—there’s a particular image of joyful Snoopy that I’ve always loved and have in our studio that manages to capture so much feeling and emotion in a sketch. I was intrigued by the idea of taking that image and playfulness but subverting it. A rebellious spirit is contrasted with reassuringly natural Coach leather to create something unexpected.”

And Vevers did just that by pitting a flitting Woodstock against a sophisticated color palette of black and ivory, an exuberant Snoopy on a cheery “Woodstock” yellow, and offering edgy black leather Snoopy dolls.

The 21-piece Coach x Peanuts capsule collection is available now at French boutique colette.fr, with a broader launch slated to debut on coach.com October 24. With the second launch date comes Coach’s first official iPhone app with fun Coach x Peanuts-related features, like getting photo-bombed by Peanuts characters. But in the meantime, you can take a look at the digital (and animated!) Coach x Peanuts lookbook on coach.com.

Kyra Sedgwick Explains Why She Wouldn’t Let Husband Kevin Bacon Teach Her the Ukulele

October 9, 2014 @ 9:45 am

Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon have one of the longest marriages in all of Hollywood (26 years and counting!), which must make everyone ask, “How do they do it?” During a visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday, Sedgwick may have given a vital clue as to what makes a healthy marriage work so well for so long: knowing which things you shouldn’t engage in together.

Sedgwick told host Jimmy Kimmel that Bacon recently bought her a ukulele as a present, but she opted to be self-taught rather than have her musician husband teach her how to play. The actress—who is currently appearing as a guest star on the comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine—explained that in the beginning of their marriage Bacon attempted to teach her how to drive stick shift and it did not go well. “He was really mean,” she lovingly reminisced, “He was just a really tough teacher!” Lesson learned!
