Alright nerds, hold on to your everything because I have a whole lotta GoT/other nerd crossover star photos to throw at you! We’re being blessed with so much Gwendoline Christie right now thanks to the upcoming Star Wars movie, we’ve got a little Emilia Clarke our mother of dragons/John Connor, and hey, why not our favourite Wildling/aspiring secretary maid Rose Leslie (Yes Downton Abbey is a nerd show! I watched every episode even though it got REALLY bad, it sparks devotion! It features costumes and high drama and controversial character deaths. NERRRRRD!)

All of these pictures are beautiful, but lets be real and admit it: THE GWENDOLINE PICTURES ARE BLOWING OUR MINDS! AREN’T THEY? THEY ARE! God, she’s perfect.

OBJECTIFY MEN: Channing Tatum & Chris Pratt

I am obsessed with Channing Tatum right now. He’s all I think about. I try to figure him out. Why do I love him? Is it his ability to own a comedic role as effortlessly as he does a dramatic part? Is it his ROCKIN BOD? Is it that he can dance and has the effortless grace of a modern day Gene Kelly? Is it that he’s just slightly skewered so he’s not TOO handsome? Because I like to look at his almost lantern jaw & adorable open-car-door ears & think about how approachable his beauty is. I know part of why I love him is because he’s so good. I’ve developed a lot of celebrity man crushes & discovered they’re actually terrible people (Mark Wahlberg) or have done questionable, angry things in the past (Michael Fassbender, Christian Bale), but ChanChan is gentle, and kind. He does adorable things with his wife, like choreograph dances with her that they perform at award show after parties, and get pedicures with her on her birthday because he told her he’ll do anything she wants on her birthday. I bet he’s a great dad. I bet he’s an awesome son. I bet he keeps in touch with distant cousins and the girl he brought to junior prom. He also loves men, and talks lustfully about his Magic Mike co-stars and how dreamy they are and how much he wants to hold them in his beefy arms. He’s just wonderful, and beautiful, and he fills my heart with joy. I want to beat his dick off with both hands.

Look at these beautiful photos Annie Leibovitz and Norman Jean Roy took of C-Tates! Leibovitz perfectly captured his Gene Kelly, throwback, dancer grace for the Vanity Fair cover story, while Roy photographed him as the perfect beefcake man-pinup in a stunning spread for GQ UK.

You know who else is lovely? Chris Pratt. Let’s go ahead and look at him too while we’re looking at ChanChan, since they’re both similar in talent & brawn.

Here’s how much I love Angelina Jolie – while I was going through my 10,000+ picture collection I have on my computer of her selecting my favorites for this post celebrating her 40th birthday today, I almost started crying because I love her so much.  I am not alone in this level of worshipful adoration of the model turned actress turned director, many other women, especially those who came of age in the 90’s, see her as an icon, inspiring us all to live honestly and never be ashamed and to be kind to the world around you even if that world hasn’t been kind to you.  Angelina has been through many different transformations in her life, each one a guide post for young women to show you how to be all things that you want, when you want.

Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue, March 2015

Su and I have been obsessed with the Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue since its inception in 1995 (quick note: Oscar nominees and likely winners for best lead and supporting actress Julianne Moore and Patricia Arquette are two of the women featured on the first Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue cover). A line-up of the most beautiful, popular performers of the year is too good to resist, and we would eagerly await the tri-fold cover each year, fold it out (or in the past few years, refresh the page) and delight or dismay in the choices of cover-stars. There have been a few misses, especially over the past few years, but the majority of the issues are memorable and timeless. Inside each issue, portraits of celebrities are featured and photographed by popular photographers. I believe Annie Leibovitz has shot every cover, including this year’s. This year’s portfolio is shot by British portrait photographer Jason Bell and features only popular British actors (even though the cover definantly features three American actors). While I’m not personally familiar with a lot of the performers, and I’m not totally on board with some of the people featured, and of course I have an angrily scribbled list of people who were overlooked (“WHERE’S IDRIS?” Su exclaimed), the actual photos are gorgeous; it’s always so refreshing to see a talented photographer who isn’t especially well known receive a spotlight this big.
