Scarlett Johansson’s New Cropped Cut Makes Its NYC Debut

On Tuesday, a pregnant Scarlett Johansson stepped out in New York City, and her baby bump wasn’t the only new thing she was sporting. The 29-year-old Lucy star premiered her freshly cropped (not to mention bright blonde) hairstyle while strolling the streets of the Big Apple with her fiancé Romain Dauriac.

Although short locks have been spotted all over Hollywood lately, I can’t help but wonder if she’s just getting ready for her next big on-screen project.

From Girls to Peter Pan, Allison Williams Just Doesn’t Want to Grow Up

Here’s a bit of pixie dust to sweeten your morning coffee: actress Allison Williams has been cast as Peter Pan in an NBC live musical production set to premiere on December 4. Sure, Neverland is a far cry from the Girls set in New York, but Allison has eagerly awaited this opportunity since childhood. She even donned a Peter Pan costume as a kid, and posted the proof on Instagram.

Of her upcoming role, she joked: “What could go wrong in a live televised production with simultaneous flying, sword fighting and singing?” On the other end of Allison’s sword, viewers will see the always charming (and sometimes wicked) Christopher Walken in the role of Captain Hook. While it will be tough to rival Walt Disney’s version of the imaginative story, I’ll definitely be tuning in to this star-studded update.

American Apparel Appoints Its First Female Director

American Apparel is no stranger to the news. But one headline that the label hasn’t yet prompted? Its first female director – until now.

On Wednesday, the company appointed Colleen Brown to its board of directors. The former CEO of Fisher Communications, a group of TV and radio stations, Colleen is one of four new members added to the company’s board in the wake of previous CEO Dov Charney’s sexual harassment allegations.

What can we expect from the shift? I, for one, would support a fresh perspective (sans the racy disputes).

Jared Leto: The Internet’s Latest Darling

Last weekend, Thirty Seconds to Mars star Jared Leto posted a picture of himself hugging a tree with the caption, “Tree huggin hippy? Guilty!” And just like that, the Internet went wild, editing the image to make it look like Jared is hugging everything from President Obama’s face to Angelina Jolie’s leg.

Now, a good meme can make your day. But these? They have the potential to make your whole week, especially now that you can create your very own #jaredhugginleto meme on the star’s official website. So congratulations, Jared Leto. You’ve inspired Internet gold. Bravo.

When Harry Met Sally, a Quarter Century Ago

I was only a year old when the movie When Harry Met Sally first debuted on the big screen on July 14, 1989. It’s true, I could barely hold my own bottle. But that didn’t stop me from, years later, sitting down with friends to watch one of the most influential rom-coms in pop culture history. And, yes, we’re still watching.

Clueless the Musical, Starring… Katy Perry?

As if we didn’t already love Clueless enough, director Amy Heckerling recently divulged to Vulture that she is bringing her cult-favorite 90s film to Broadway. Working as hard as Cher did to make over Tai, Amy is debating who should tackle the leading role of the movie’s beloved Beverly Hills princess.

Kay Perry

Amy told Vulture, “Katy Perry has expressed interest, and I love her to death.” While I’d love to see the doe-eyed singer on stage, the director also threw another rising star’s name in the ring, adding: “Maybe Iggy [Azalea] wants to do it!” After all, Iggy did pull inspiration from Cher and the gang in the music video for her chart-topping hit, “Fancy.” While the cast gets sorted out, I’ll be anxiously awaiting the dance routines that accompany my favorite scenes.

Emma Watson’s Next Gig: U.N. Ambassador

The newest addition to Emma Watson’s résumé? (And no, it’s not a Harry Potter reunion…) She’s been named the next Goodwill Ambassador for U.N. Women, a branch dedicated to gender equality and the empowerment of women. The starlet will work with the HeForShe campaign, a women-led movement in which men are encouraged to speak out against inequalities faced by females.

“We are thrilled and honored to work with Emma, whom we believe embodies the values of U.N. Women,” Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, the executive director of U.N. Women, said in a statement. “The engagement of young people is critical for the advancement of gender equality in the 21st century, and I am convinced that Emma’s intellect and passion will enable U.N. Women’s messages to reach the hearts and minds of young people globally.”

Emma and Phumzile aren’t the only excited ones. Marie Claire reports that after the announcement, the U.N.’s website shut down due to an influx of traffic. Quite the accomplishment for her first day on the job.

Chopped: Kristen Stewart Rocks a New Pixie Cut

Following in the footsteps of A-list counterparts JLaw and Emma Watson, Kristen Stewart has chopped off her long locks – and it looks good.

The Twilight star and former sweetheart of Robert Pattinson debuted her perfectly messy pixie cut yesterday at Chanel’s Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2014/15 show in Paris. Her shorter style also sported a hint of orange, said to be the result of a grown-out dye job from the actress’s upcoming role in American Ultra.

Shocking? Maybe if it were Jennifer Aniston, but from Kristen Stewart, we’ve come to expect the unexpected.

For a Good Cause: Anne Hathaway Joins Charity-Sign Trend

A few weeks ago, Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield took their power-couple awesomeness to the next level by warding off paparazzi not with hoods and fingers, but with signs that listed their favorite charities. And now, it seems they’ve started a trend. Over the long weekend, Anne Hathaway and husband Adam Shulman stepped out in New York City with similar cardboard cutouts.
