Cate Blanchett Was “a Couple Sheets to the Wind” While Giving Her Golden Globes Acceptance Speech

Cate Blanchett, Golden Globes 2014, Winner Cate Blanchett did admit she had a “few vodkas under her belt” during her acceptance speech at the Golden Globes. But the Blue Jasmine star is revealing a bit more about her evening leading up to her winning moment.

“Unfortunately my category came up rather late in the evening so I was a couple of sheets to the wind,” the Aussie actress told The Telegraph with a laugh. “Once your name is read out it’s a high like no other so I can’t remember a lot. I hope I didn’t do too many things I’ll regret.”

This makes sense because this is the Golden Globes, the film-and-TV extravaganza where celebs are encouraged to drink (and in some cases can’t even be bothered to leave their liquor behind when they take the stage).

As for the award, the blond beauty dished “the Globe is in the hotel room and my sons made a little shrine for it with all the flowers that I have been receiving for the past week that are now dead.”

Blanchett is on a winning streak this awards season and raking up the accolades for her role in Woody Allen’s comedy-drama.

During her SAG Awards acceptance speech, Blanchett took the stage to start giving her thanks. However, she was only onstage for a few moments when the teleprompter let her know that didn’t have much time left.

Leo get Shark attacked!

leosharkLeonardo DiCaprio’s life isn’t always as glitzy and glamorous as his vacay pictures make it appear to be.

In fact, the Wolf of Wall Street star has had “a few” shark encounters—including one with a “gigantic great white” when he was almost eaten alive!

“I went scuba diving looking for sharks, and I had a huge fear of sharks,” he says on an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show airing Tuesday, Jan 7. “When I did Blood Diamond in 2006, I actually got stuck in a cage with a great white, which was awesome.”

“It was in the cage with me,” he adds. “They actually said in 30 years this is has never happened, but the tuna kind of got stuck in the top of the cage and the great white kept on and tried to bite it and went into the cage with me…and half of its body was in and out and I flattened down at the bottom.”

“It was this far away [shows small distance] and it chomped a few times, but I survived it,” he says, and thank goodness for that! You’d think  Jaws would cut the Titanic star some slack in the ocean of all places.

But nearly becoming fish food isn’t the only unglamorous part of the 39-year-old actor’s life! While filming an intricate Wolf of Wall Street scene with Jonah Hill, crewmembers “couldn’t get this ham to stick on my face,” so they covered it with K-Y Jelly!

“There’s literally a guy there behind this giant window with a plastic spoon just flicking ham on my face all day long as I’m doing this insane sequence,” he recalls “But it was almost, it was one of the most surreal things I’ve ever done in my entire career.”

Jen & Justin get their party on with Clooney!

clooneyanistonJennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are ringing in the New Year south of the border!

Over the weekend, the A-list couple attended a special event in Mexico with pal George Clooney for his alcohol brand Casamigos Tequila.

The annual brunch was held at the El Dorado Beach Club in Los Cabos, Mexico, yesterday. In addition to Clooney, Aniston and Theroux, Jimmy Kimmel, Howard Stern, and Casamigos partners Mike Meldman and Rande Gerber and Gerber’s wife, Cindy Crawford, were all in attendance, as was Michael Phelps, who shared an Instagram pic of a tequila aging barrel.

And the week before, Aniston and Theroux partied with Clooney at a different pre-New Year’s bash!

All the same celeb guests were in attendance, including Aniston and Theroux.

It appears that Clooney is still enjoying himself while on vacation in Mexico. Yesterday, the Casamigos TequilaFacebook page shared a photo of the Oscar winner making a cocktail with the caption, “George mixing some ‘Bloody Amigos’ for some friends at the 4th hole.”

Aniston and Theroux arrived in Cabo San Lucas just after Christmas for a romantic getaway together.

Ellie Goulding Gets Sexier Than Ever!

ellieEllie Goulding is doing everything she can to shed her good girl image.

The “Burn” singer looks sexier than ever as she poses completely topless in the latest U.K. edition of Marie Claire.

The Brit told the fashion mag that she’s not as “squeaky-clean” as she lets on.

“People might think I am but I’m not. I’ve been quite clever about what gets in the press but I’ve done some stupid things, some reckless things. A few too many drinks have caused a lot of things to happen,” she confessed.

Goulding also opened up about why she thinks she’s still having trouble landing the man of her dreams.

“People seem to think I’m more wife material than girlfriend material,” she said. “That’s probably why I’m still single! People want to marry me—and nothing before it.”

To be fair, that doesn’t sound like the worst problem to have, right?

And speaking of marriages, Goulding gushed about Prince William and Kate Middletonand talked about the once in a lifetime experience of singing at their wedding.

“They’re just a really awesome couple, lovely people, so I understand why people are fascinated by them,” she shared.

“I talked to them a bit…They’re truly lovely people. It was a really beautiful night. But then, I haven’t been to many weddings.”

She also opened up about how she managed to keep her secret performance under wraps before the big event.

“In the weeks before, everyone I know was talking about the wedding, and I was…trying not to say anything. I kept it to myself for so long—but no one would have believed me anyway.”

Beliebers barking about name for new pooch!

E! News first reported that the “Confident” singer stopped by Ruffin’s Pet Centre in Stratford, Ontario, last week with his family and purchased a 7-week-old American bulldog.

“Blue Ivy diet” slims Beyonce by 65 pounds

beyonceblueivyThere’s no doubt that Beyoncé’s latest album is her most revealing body of work yet. Literally.

The singer defended her decision to show off her body and feature several explicit songs in part four of her self-titled documentary called Liberation.

“The day I got engaged was my husband’s birthday and I took him to Crazy Horse and I remember thinking, ‘Damn, these girls are fly.’ And I just thought it was the ultimate sexy show. I wish I was up there, I wish I could perform that for my man…so that’s what I did for my video,” Bey said about her track “Partition.”

The burlesque-themed video shows Jay Z’s other half dancing in a series of provocative ensembles, including a thong at one point.

“I was very aware of the fact that I was showing my body. I was 195 pounds when I gave birth, I lost 65 pounds, I worked crazily to get my body back. I wanted to show my body,” she said.

“I wanted to show that you can have a child and you can work hard and you can get your body back. I know finding my sensuality, getting back into my body, being proud of growing up, it was important to me that I expressed that in my music because there are so many women that feel the same thing after they give birth.”

The “Grown Woman” singer also added that she wants to inspire new mothers everywhere to not be ashamed of their sexuality.

“You can have your child and still have fun and still be sexy and still have dreams and still have yourself,” she shared. “I don’t at all have any shame in being sexual and I’m not embarrassed about it…I don’t feel like I have to protect that side of me because I do believe that sexuality is a power that we all have.”

And there you have it, from the Queen herself!

No hurdles for Bruce Jenner following split from Kris

krisbruceHow is Kris Jenner and Bruce Jenner’s relationship doing two months after they announced their split?

According to Bruce’s son Brody Jenner, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians stars are “better than ever” since breaking up.

“He seems like he is doing great,” Brody recently told the NY Daily News of his dad. “Seems like better than ever…growing his hair out, and he has a ponytail.”

Brody added, “At the end of the day, once you get to that age, the most important thing is, are you there for the kids?”

Kris and Bruce announced their separationafter 22 years of marriage back in October. “We are living separately and we are much happier this way,” the pair told says. “But we will always have much love and respect for each other. Even though we are separated, we will always remain best friends and, as always, our family will remain our number one priority.”

The split wasn’t a surprise to KUWTK fans, who saw the couple living apart on the hit E! show.

As for Bruce’s hair, Brody says the reason behind his dad growing out his locks may be to get under Kris and the Kardashian girls’ skin.

“He does a lot of these things in spite of the girls,” Brody says. “One of the girls will make fun of his hair or say something about his hair, and he’ll grow it longer just because they’re saying that. He’s one of those types. Even though maybe he’ll want to cut it, he won’t just because when he goes over to the house, they’ll say, ‘Oh my God, what’s going on with your hair?'”
