I am a senior staff writer at THG and a big fan of Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber and Robert Pattinson. I believe Kim Kardashian is bad for society, but great for attention, and that The Real Housewives should all be banned from existence.

If confidence is sexy, then Robert Pattinson may be the ugliest person on the planet.

In a new interview with The Improper, the Twilight star is asked to judge his own looks. His answer would likely shock fans around the globe.

Cute Concert Goers

"I never really considered myself attractive," the actor said. "I was always kind of gangly in school."

Seriously, folks. Robert Pattinson does not consider himself to be attractive. What's next? Will Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag say they don't want publicity?


In the Twilight book, Edward Cullen is described as an "unspeakably beautiful Adonis" by his eventual lover, Bella Swan.

Sounds perfect for Pattinson, right? Not so much.

"That’s the reason I didn’t want to go in for the part initially, because it’s really putting yourself out there," the New Moon star said. "Going in for the audition, I felt like a bit of an idiot. I felt prejudged by anyone who turned up to the casting. I just thought even having the gall to go in means you’re a bit of an arrogant prick."

As for his sex appeal, Pattinson somehow doesn't see it.

"Good-looking? Noooo. Before I go out to face a crowd, I stare and stare at myself in the mirror until I have to tell myself to stop staring, since there’s nothing I can do.”

We think we speak for every woman in the world when we say: there's no need to do anything, Robert. No need at all.

Sacha Baron Cohen will say anything to anyone.

This was evident in Borat and, based on the previews we've seen and the Bruno quotes we've heard, it's evident in his latest comedy, as well.

But give Cohen credit for not simply talking the talk; he most definitely walks the walk.

From shoving his bare ass into Eminem's face at the MTV Movie Awards, to riding into the Australian premiere for Bruno on a horse, this is one star whose inhibitions are always lower than those of a coked-up Lindsay Lohan.

Below, Cohen dresses the part during the opening of Bruno Down Under. Click on each photo for a larger version of it...

This isn't exactly breaking news, nor is it the most exciting celebrity gossip story you'll read today.

But don't blame us. Blame Kim Kardashian.

If the reality TV star would go back to making sex tapes, or posing nude in Playboy, we could report on something other than the fact that her and LaLa Vazquez went shopping in Beverly Hills this week.

Alas, this is all we have at the moment. Even Kim herself seems bored by this activity, as she's seemingly telling a photographer, in the shot below, that there are more interesting things to snap pictures of than her jaunt across the street:

Life is good for Ashley Tisdale.

The former High School Musical star has a new boyfriend (Scott Speer), a new movie coming out (Aliens in the Attic) and a new album on the way (Guilty Pleasure will be released on July 31).

But Tisdale isn't just sitting back and anticipating success. She's making it happen!

The young, beautiful singer helped to hype her upcoming CD with a performence at The Grove in Los Angeles over the weekend. Below are photos from the event:

Thanks to a $201 million haul for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Megan Fox and Shia LaBeouf were on top of the box office this weekend.

But were the co-stars also on top of one another?!?

Hot Megan Fox Pic

According to The New York Daily News, the actors sat next to each other during a dinner with 10 friends, including director Oliver Stone, at Nobu on Thursday. But that wasn't all!

“They definitely seemed into each other,” said a witness, who added that LaBeouf followed Fox out the door around 10 p.m.

Meanwhile, another spy said the pair partied together in West Hollywood earlier in the week and “Shia couldn’t keep his eyes off of Megan: He literally watched her like a hawk all night.”

We've literally done the same thing to our gallery of Megan Fox pictures. Every day. All day.

There may not have been a rose ceremony, and it may not have taken place in front of any TV cameras, but reports indicate that Melissa Rycroft has been proposed to once again.

On Friday night, according to The Dallas Morning News, Rycroft and boyfriend Tye Strickland showed up at Brio Tuscan Grille in Southlake, Texas. They were joined by a pair of older couples, rumored to be each side's parents.

Together 4 Eva

This spring, Tye Strickland accompanied Melissa Rycroft to Dancing with the Stars training. Now, he'll accompany her to bed every night for the rest of their lives!

As a vase of fresh flowers sat on the table, whispers around the restaurant turned to the fact that Melissa and Tye got engaged earlier in the evening.

The newspaper cites sources that claim Rycroft was presented with a ring inside of a box that featured its own internal lighting (to make the diamond shine).

If this is true, the controversial Bachelor finale in March will have resulted in two happy endings: one for Rycroft and Strickland; and one for Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney, who are together and very much in love, according to THG insiders.

Turn away, Twilight fans!

In the photos below, Robert Pattinson is giving a large stuffed animal to a woman that is NOT Kristen Stewart!

** UPDATE: Phew. We're being told the woman in the following pictures is Emilie de Ravin and the images are courtesy of a movie she is filming with Pattinson, Remember Me.

It doesn't seem like Stewart has anything to worry about... unless certain reports from the film's set are to be believed. A witness told Life & Style:

"[Robert and Emilie] both seemed to be having a great time and looked genuinely happy to be working together."

This is causing extreme heartbreak for Stewart because, in the words of a Twilight insider: "Rob flirted with Kristen when they were filming, so she can't help but wonder what he's doing with Emilie."

Uh-oh. As you click on the pics below of Pattinson and de Ravin, let us know: Do you think these two are hooking up?

As the head judge on Dancing with the Stars, Len Goodman is tasked with handing out 10s to the best performances each week.

Following Goodman's recent admission that he's battling prostate cancer, though, allow us to reverse roles and deliver a top score to this brave dancing expert.

The 65-year old was diagnosed in March, but he told Britain's The Daily Mail that the disease was found early and, following surgery, he feels "right as rain."

Instead of removing the cancerous tumor immediately, Goodman actually continued his role on Dancing with the Stars for two months, critiquing Melissa Rycroft, Gilles Marini and others without showing any signs of the discomfort he was experiencing.

"I could have said 'sorry' and not done the show, but the doctors felt I wasn't riddled with it and it wasn't so far advanced that it was a life-or-death scenario," Goodman told th newspaper. "It takes a few weeks to get everything set up for the operation anyway, so I went ahead and did the show. I had the surgery done as soon as I got back from America."

Feeling fine, Goodman points to the major downside of his cancer scare.

"You can't play golf, which is the biggest blow at the moment."

Cat fights. Table flips. Cocaine-addicted kidnappers.

The first season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey had it all. Therefore, it comes as no shock that another round of episodes has been ordered for this Bravo series.

"They're doing a second season, and it's going to be crazier than the first," a source told Life & Style. "It's going to explode. There's no premiere date, but everyone knows it's going to be a huge hit. The reason it has taken so long to announce is that once the show became such a hit, the women held out for much bigger paychecks."

The Real Housewives of New Jersey

Meanwhile, the woman at the center of the show - and in the center of the photograph above - is Danielle Staub.

Host Andy Cohen referred to Staub as a "fascinating character" during a recent interview with OK! Magazine, adding that "she certainly had a rich life that has gone in many directions.”

That rich life, of course, includes a sex tape with former flame Stephen Zawelski and five years of probation in the late 1980s for her involvement in an extortion case. Referring to Danielle's relationship with the rest of the cast, Cohen said:

“Frankly, I don’t think any the women believe half or a third or a fifth of what she says... They ain’t having dinner any time soon! They ain’t having dinner ever!"

Will you be tuning in for another season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey?
