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.

Windsor Is Coming: Queen Elizabeth Visits Game of Thrones Set

Yesterday, Queen Elizabeth made an appearance on the Game of Thrones set in Belfast, Northern Ireland. But much to fans’ discontent? She didn’t sit on the most famous seat in the Seven Kingdoms: the Iron Throne. With Kit Harington (Jon Snow) smiling and on-screen queen Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) encouraging her, all signs looked good, and it would have been the icing on the set-tour cake. Yet, sorry Twitter – epic memes are not in our future here.

To her credit, when you’re the Queen, you have every right to be choosy.
