Jake Gyllenhaal carries a Nike shopping bag while taking a stroll with a gal pal on Friday (December 20) in New York City’s Tribeca district.
Ewan McGregor shows off his sexy shirtless body while enjoying a warm vacation with his wife Eve Mavrakis on Sunday (December 22) in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
At a recent auction, Hiddleston's size 11 blue Converse sneakers sold for £4,500 (about $7300), after garnering more than 100 bids. And you bet it was all for a good cause:
The Small Steps Project in Archway put 120 pairs of the celebrities' shoes under the hammer last week to give the public the chance to walk like their favourite stars, while raising funds to support families who live on rubbish dumps in developing countries.
No word on whether these particular shoes were used by Hiddles for any dancing sessions or epic dance-offs.
Coming in second place at the auction with a not too shabby £3,705 (roughly $6000) was a pair of signed Reebok's donated by Mick Jagger. Other celebrity shoes up for grabs included those belonging to Kate Winslet, Nicole Scherzinger, Emma Watson, Kate Moss, Natalie Portman, Maria Sharapova and Serena Williams.
One Direction have reportedly accused Kendall Jenner of using Harry Styles.
The One Direction boys are reportedly angry with Kendall Jenner for taking Harry Styles away from them.
The British boyband are apparently unhappy with the way Harry rushes off to see the American reality TV star.
It's been claimed that Harry ditched his bandmates on a recent trip to France to fly to London as Kendall was in the British capital for a visit.
"She flew over and surprised him and Harry visited her at a hotel. They're accusing her of using Harry to land London-based modelling gigs," a source told heatworld.com.
"Kendall has already told Harry that she wants to move part-time to London to make a go in the fashion world, modelling and designing."
The band are also said to fear a similar situation as happened when 19-year-old Harry dated Taylor Swift, reports the site.
The high-profile relationship caused a media furore, with attention being diverted away from the music One Direction were producing.
But undeterred Kendall, 18, is alleged to have asked Harry to appear on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the TV programme that follows her and her family.
"Kendall's already asked him to appear on her family's reality show, which his family, friends and bandmates are urging him against," the source added.
Harry doesn't seem to be too fazed by his friends' reservations though, and is busy getting ready to enjoy the festive period.
He took to his Twitter account yesterday to wish his fans a happy holidays.
"I hope everyone has a lovely Christmas. Thank you for everything. I'm going to sleep for a while. Wake me up for dinner please. H .xx," he tweeted to his 18.3million followers.

Sunday's flashback of an episode inspires talk of Bo and Lauren's past and future together, Dyson's manhood, Zoie Palmer's singing voice and next week's Tamsin-tinged holiday treat!
Emily Gagne, December 22, 2013 11:00:17 PM
Talk about a blast from the past! That’s what we’re doing with this week’s Lost Girl Talk, as Emily Andras (the Lost Girl showrunner) and Emily Gagne (the TV Guide Canada writer) memorialize this Sunday’s episode, the time travelganza that was “La Fae Époque.”
A lot went down in this episode — a semi Bo/Dyson/Lauren threesome, Kenzi with blonde hair and angel wings, Zoie Palmer singing!— so let’s put on our “hell shoes” and get to moving!
TV Guide Canada: First off, a great episode. Perhaps my favourite since the premiere, “In Memoriam”! I just want to know how the cast reacted when you told them the concept of the episode, and that they’d be playing off-the-wall, ancient version of themselves.
EA: Obviously I have a slight reputation as a bit a troll, and the cast is not immune to being ‘Andrased,’ as I sometimes call it. So ever since the second season when they had to do the body swap episode, every year they sort of know that the writers have one, spectacular, insane, ambitious, high-comedy episodes in our back pockets. They brace themselves, but they’re still shocked, which I love.
I’ve had the privilege of working with Zoie on three different shows and I actually worked with her on Instant Star, the show a long time ago where she played this rocker character Patsy Sewer, who was named after my lovely aunt, one of my mentors. So, I knew Zoie could sing, but it’s been a while and it was such a departure from Lauren. But she was really game.
Anna did a really decent thing — she made sure to be on set the whole time Zoie was performing. Sometimes when you go for someone’s close-up, you send someone else off to get make-up, but Anna was like, ‘No, I want to be in Zoie’s eyeline and be there for her!’ It just kind of spoke to how supportive everyone was.
Rick was amazing [as] Trick. He had actually secretly been training with a bo staff with our stunt guys for a few months and hadn’t really told anyone. So, our lovely stunt coordinator, Paul Rapovski, brought in this video of Rick training and he was genuinely so good. That just gave this element to Trick that we were really excited about. He’s obviously got these secret talents up his sleeve.
EA: He was really good! And he was so game. He’s so gracious too.
Even though it was sort of Dyson’s story, it’s true that he sort of took a backseat. But he was there to guide Anna, as he was with Ksenia in “Original Skin,” about how he might play something. You know, just to give her some help with the physicality as the wolf and as Dyson.
And you know, hiding your junk behind a gargoyle is the new black.So, Merry Christmas, Dyson fans! For a certain price I can give you the outtakes! Maybe they weren’t so well-hidden…. [Laughs]
TVG: I’m guessing it was a flesh sock situation.
EA: No comment! [Laughs]
But some of our actors are shier than others. Some of them have no problem just rockin’ it as nature intended!
EA: That’s going to be part of the trick if we ever go that route. Because when Bo went into Dyson’s memory, she saw the angel as Kenzi. She brought the familiar to Dyson’s memory. But if we meet the real angel, she’s not necessarily going to look exactly like Kenzi. If she’s still living or whatever.
That is to say, we thought Ksenia looked so beautiful in that outfit. And I loved her make-up. I just think she’s such a chameleon — we’ve tried some different looks on Kenzi, on Ksenia, this year and she just looks so gorgeous. I have quite a beautiful picture I sent her of herself lying on the bar. She was really shy about it, but I was like, ‘This is your Christmas card! Please put this up!’ [Laughs]
TVG: It sounds like everyone was a bit nervous going into this episode
EA: They were. But I think it’s good to be nervous. I think it’s good to remember that feeling of fear. As a writer, actor, whatever, it’s good to challenge yourself versus it just being static. I think that’s why people really love working on the show — every week it’s something new, something fresh, something unexpected.
TVG: Speaking of the unexpected, we got the first Zoie/Kris sex scene and then we got the first on-screen Zoie/Anna sex scene of the season all at once! How was it conceptualizing that scene? I just loved when she looked in the mirror and sees Dyson!
EA: It was really fun! I mean, I’m sure a lot of people are screaming now, ‘That’ll be the last Zoie/Kris sex scene we ever see!’ I hear you, babies. I hear ya!
We just really thought it was a funny nod to the threesome, but very carefully done. We knew it was going to take some really heavy coordination with the mirror. But one thing that’s really amazing is that Kris and Zoie have worked together on multiple projects and they’ve actually played lovers before. So, they’re actually the biggest goofballs and really comfortable with each other — as comfortable as Anna and Zoie are, or Anna and Kris.
The three of them had a lot of fun coordinating it. Kris was kind of teasing Anna about how to do the thrusting. [Laughs] And then I think he improvised the line, ‘I guess this happening,’ and then Anna did it, which was great. And again, I have to say there were some really hilarious outtakes. I’m kinda sad we had to lose for time because there were a couple where Zoie had her head down low and then her head kept popping up everytime she said, ‘Who is it?’ It was just so hilarious to me!
EA: Well, she was technically speaking to Dyson as Flora. And I think we know that Dyson has implied that he only has ever loved Bo. I think there’s potential for that to change, obviously, but I think that’s something that Dyson has convinced himself is impossible for him. But as he’s learning to challenge rules and the way things are done, there’s lots of different ways for you to love somebody.
But it was supposed to be very subtextual about Bo and Lauren. And one of the things I loved was when Michael Grassi, the writer of the episode, and I were talking about it, we said. ‘It would be awesome to have an excuse for Anna and Zoie to have a fight scene.’ We thought, ‘That’s the promo for sure!’ And Zoie’s very physical — she’s done Nikita and stuff like that — so it was fun to highlight that stuff.
So, I guess when Flora says that it can mean all sorts of things. It is interesting that she says it to Bo as Lauren. Let me say it was a deliberate choice. There are many, many different ways to take that statement going forward.
EA: [Laughs] They ARE the travelling pants of the Fae world!
They’re like Cinderella’s slipper. They’re only going to fit Cinderella’s dainty, dainty foot. They kind of shrink to fit, but the point is, if you’re not the person that’s intended to wear the hell shoes, if you’re not the true hero, obviously they bring out the darkest parts of yourself. We’ve all bought shoes like that, to be honest. You know, where they look good in the store, but you go to the party and you’re dying and crying but you can’t wear flip-flops?
Yeah, I think they are kind of the travelling pants of the Fae world. With slightly more hellish tendencies.
TVG: I imagine we’ll see a lot more of them as the season goes on?
EA: Maybe! We have a lot for Bo to do and some really interesting twists and turns….
EA: It could be a really handy tool! But everybody was yanking them off left, right and centre!
The Red String of Destiny, or Red String of Fate, is actually very common in Chinese culture. There’s lots of literature written about it and about meeting someone as a young person who is destined to be your partner and whatnot. There are really fabulous mythological stories about it if you’re bored over the holidays and want to read some good stuff. [Laughs]
But I would say, yeah, it’s very handy. But, like all things Lost Girl, there are so many times we come up with a device, or a Fae, that’s so amazing — I’m still waiting for my Brownie to arrive and clean up grease off my stove! — and there’s always potential to bring these things back. That being said, I think it was implied that Lauren had gotten it from the Dark Fae archives. Is there a whole room of Red Strings of Destiny? Did she just take three? Who can say….
TVG: Next week we get our last Lost Girl episode of 2013 before a brief, one-week hiatus. Which section of fans will it be the biggest Christmas treat for?
EA: Uh, VAL-KU-BUS. Tamsin fans.
But, I think there is a little stocking stuffer for every portion of the Lost Girl fandom. I feel like there’s some fun Lauren stuff and some fun Dyson stuff. And Vex makes a reappearance. And Kenzi and Hale have an interesting storyline. And Bo is super fun. She has a super fun journey.
TVG: Do you have any plans to do more flashbacks with Dyson and Trick and them developing the colony?
EA: I would love that! There are so many characters whose flashbacks I’d love to see!
I had a really funny idea for one the other day about The Morrigan. I think lots of these characters have interesting pasts — even Lauren, even Kenzi — and it’s always an opportunity to explore the characters we know and love. If Showcase wants to fly me to France so we can continue to do flashbacks, that would be amazing. But we can always make it work [here]. [Laughs]
TVG: Finally, is there any way fans can download the song Lauren sang?
EA: I believe we will be posting it on iTunes. I will do my darndest to make it happen!
Lost Girl airs Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on Showcase.

I know some of you might have some rants about this episode; I'll just hope some of the initial rantiness has worn off. XD But feel free to talk/squee/rant about whatever you want, per usual.
As you watch "A Christmas Story" for the 800th time in a row and begin to wonder if there’s anything else on, let me give you a warning: there are some treacherous paths out there.
Sure you could get lucky and find "Elf" or "Home Alone 2" on TNT, but be careful, some of the worst movies you’ll ever see are disguised as fun, holiday cheer for the whole family. To keep you safe, here are the ten worst Christmas movies ever made.
Christmas with the Kranks
Year of Release: 2004
Who’s in It: Tim Allen, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Dan Aykroyd
Why It’s So Bad: Wacky Tim Allen is at his worst as he and Jamie Lee Curtis bumble around for 90 minutes while getting into some of the most dull and boring hijinks you’ve ever seen. It’s so unrealistic and stupid your eyes will be rolled back more than The Undertaker during the ‘90s.
Year of Release: 2006
Who’s in It: Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Lacey Chabert
Why It’s So Bad: The original version of the movie is campy and fun. This one abandons all of that in exchange for a mundane cookie cutter slasher film that floods you with so much back story you’ll cheer for the killer to finish everyone off just so the movie can be over.
Santa with Muscles
Year of Release: 1996
Who’s in It: Hulk Hogan
Why It’s So Bad: The movie made a total of $198,000 at the box office so to say it bombed is a sever understatement. Basically the Hulkster is a millionaire and a total jerk, but after getting amnesia he thinks he’s Santa Claus. The story is so bad and was rewritten so many times, the original writer sued to get his name taken off the credits.
Home Alone 4: Taking Back the House
Year of Release: 2002
Who’s in It: French Stewart and NONE OF THE ORIGINAL CAST
Why It’s So Bad: Instead of just going with a new story and new characters, the studio thought no one would notice a horrible new cast that includes a Kevin McCallister that’s younger than he was in Home Alone 2! Get out of my face with this nonsense.
Year of Release: 1997
Who’s in It: Scott Macdonald (hey, no mention of Shannon Elizabeth?)
Why It’s So Bad: Do not get confused and buy this one for your kids instead of the Michael Keaton film. This one is about a serial killer who is killed and then somehow comes back as a snowman. I’m no doctor but the odds of that seem somewhat unlikely.

What's the worst Christmas movie (or TV episode/special) that you've ever seen?
'HIM' - A parody of the Spike Jonze film 'Her'/Beyonce
Group hug! Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt and daughter Zahara, eight, share tender and tight cuddle on family trip to the zoo in Australia
They were all recently reunited when Brad Pitt jetted to Australia earlier this month to join his wife Angelina Jolie and their brood as the actress continues to work on her film Unbroken Down Under.
And the couple and their six children, Maddox, 12, Pax, Zahara, eight, Shiloh, seven, and five-year-old twins, Knox and Vivienne, looked closer than ever as they visited the Currumbin Wildlife Park on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia, on Thursday.
During the outing, the power couple were seen giving their little girl Zahara a tight squeeze as the clan spent quality time together.

ONTD Do you remember the last time you were hugged?
Vivienne is so over it!
Nintendo has announced that the launch of its PokeBank and PokeTransporter apps will be delayed owing to a large volume of traffic to the Nintendo Network service. The two apps were previously slated for a 27 December release in North America and Europe. The company launched the two apps on 25 December in Japan. According to its Japanese site, Nintendo took the Pokemon Bank cloud storage app offline and removed it from the eShop in Japan owing to massive strain on company servers.
In a message on its site, where it announced the delay, Nintendo said: "Nintendo and The Pokémon Company International have postponed the launch of Pokémon Bank and Poké Transporter - two software applications that were originally scheduled to launch for Nintendo 3DS on Dec 27 - due to a large volume of traffic to the Nintendo Network service.
"Due to the high traffic, players are having trouble setting up Nintendo Network IDs and downloading content in the Nintendo eShop on both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. We truly regret the inconvenience, and wish to reassure everyone that providing a solution is our top priority. We apologize for the delay and thank you for your continued patience."
The app is now off the e-shop and Nintendo is yet to offer details on when it will be available again. Users will have to pay a yearly subscription of $5 to access the service. The company also announced a free 30-day trial period for the PokeBank app upon launch.
The user overload created problems across Nintendo's servers, thereby affecting its 3DS and Wii U platforms, both of which were recently linked through the Nintendo Network ID System.
The incident is another indicator of the massive popularity of Nintendo's latest Pokemon games, Pokemon X and Pokemon Y, which went on to sell over 4 million copies within two days of its launch in Japan.
A new post from Kotaku says that despite the checks on the new service, gamers were still able to transfer illegal Pokemon to the next generation. The app has now been taken offline.
Crosses $500 Million Worldwide
THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG continues its climb up the worldwide box office, crossing $500 million globally. The film, a production of New Line Cinema and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures (MGM), has thus far grossed an estimated $160.5 million domestically and $343.5 million internationally, for a worldwide estimated total of $504 million and growing.
Moving into its third week in release, THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG continues to dominate the global box office, remaining the #1 film in U.S. and abroad. Internationally, the film has released in 61 territories, with key markets China and Japan set to open in the coming months.
THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG is the second film in Oscar®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson’s epic “The Hobbit” Trilogy, based on the timeless novel by J.R.R. Tolkien. The first film, “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” was released on December 14, 2012, and went on to become a billion dollar success at the worldwide box office.
She's known for her wacky sense of humour, and is never afraid to poke fun at her catwalk queen status.
And Cara Delevingne did her best to stand out among the effortlessly cool jet-set crowd as she soaked up the sun in Barbados on Friday.
Ditching her chic shades in favour of a pair of hilarious oversized comedy suglasses, the 21-year-old supermodel's choice of beach accessory wasn't exactly runway ready.
Goofing around as she posed for photographs on the beach at Heron Bay with her friends and family, the willowy beauty seemed to be having a whale of a time as she soaked up the sun on the Caribbean island.
Showcasing her slim model figure in a tiny scarlet bikini, the model of the moment put the stresses of the past year behind her as she enjoyed a day of fun in the sun with her nearest and dearest.
After a spot of sunbathing on the pristine white sands, Cara threw on a pair of denim Daisy Dukes and one of her signature burgundy backwards caps and headed onto a yacht, where she was seen chatting absent-mindedly on her mobile phone.
Displaying her naturally flawless skin, the London-born catwalk queen went make-up free and wore her ash blonde locks hanging in wet tendrils down her back as she enjoyed her day out at the beach.
And it would seem Cara was somewhat enamoured with the sun-soaked Caribbean, posting a picturesque snap on her Twitter page alongside the caption: 'How could I ever leave? #barbados.'
Cara and her family arrived in the sun-soaked holiday hotspot earlier this week as they prepared to spend the festive break together during a rare break in the model's usually jam-packed schedule.
Justin Timberlake‘s biggest fan and wife, Jessica Biel, wasn’t present for his appearance on Saturday Night Live over the weekend leading partygoer’s at the after-party to question whether the couple has broken up, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
Reports swirled that there’s trouble in paradise surrounding the A-list couple when Timberlake was recently spotted without his wedding band on during his new tour and Biel’s absence on Saturday night has only fueled the fire.
“Justin was solo again at the Saturday Night Live after party and he stayed until nearly 5 a.m.,” a fellow partygoer exclusively told Radar.
“Everyone was buzzing about her absence.”
Biel was also noticeably absent from Timberlake’s American Music Awards appearance in Nov. which she addressed on Twitter saying, “I’m watching from home tonight. Calm down, Internet.”
The partygoer also reveals that Biel didn’t accompany her husband to the show’s rehearsal’s on Friday.
“She wasn’t with him at rehearsals on Friday either, which was sort of weird,” the source said.
“And it’s not that Justin was flirting with other women or anything at the party but something just didn’t seem right. It was literally what everyone was talking about; whether he and Jessica have split.”
Timberlake did have his wedding band on at the party but barely spoke of his wife, the insider revealed.
Not shocked, tbh....
Painter-novelist-actor James Franco likes taking selfies. Like you, it fuels his self-described Instagram addiction. But while his selfies get lots of love from his more than 1 million Instagram followers, he also faces fervent flack for being the photographer of his own face.
Franco, 35, penned a revealing article in The New York Times, explaining why selfies are important to celebrities and what the behavior says about our culture:
But a well-stocked collection of selfies seems to get attention. And attention seems to be the name of the game when it comes to social networking. In this age of too much information at a click of a button, the power to attract viewers amid the sea of things to read and watch is power indeed. It’s what the movie studios want for their products, it’s what professional writers want for their work, it’s what newspapers want — hell, it’s what everyone wants: attention. Attention is power. And if you are someone people are interested in, then the selfie provides something very powerful, from the most privileged perspective possible. ... We all have different reasons for posting them, but, in the end, selfies are avatars: Mini-Me’s that we send out to give others a sense of who we are. I am actually turned off when I look at an account and don’t see any selfies, because I want to know whom I’m dealing with. In our age of social networking, the selfie is the new way to look someone right in the eye and say, “Hello, this is me.”
Franco also cautioned against only posting selfies, saying, "for every photo of a book, painting or poem, I try to post a selfie with a puppy, a topless selfie or a selfie with Seth Rogen, because these are all things that are generally liked." Mix it up, basically.
Still, Franco is the "selfie king." In one recent Instagram photo, below, Franco is taking a selfie of his shirtless body and unsmiling face in a bathroom. His caption reads, "All the kids are doing it." And it's true. Kids and adults are taking selfies in bathrooms, in dangerous places and even at funerals.

Chrissy Teigen sent an odd Christmas message to her Instagram followers this year.
On Christmas day, the 28-year-old model posted a prank video of her husband John Legend grabbing her by the throat as she wished "Merry Christmas" to her fans. She later pretends to be distressed and asks for help as the pair fake fights on camera.
While Teigen meant to post the clip as a joke, she later removed the clip from Instagram after receiving worried comments from her followers.
This is the second time Teigen takes her Instagram posts a bit too far this year. In October, the model came under fire after sharing a vulgar video where she introduced her over 300,000 followers to the "vagina raspberry."
In the clip, Teigen is seen blowing a raspberry into a fellow model's crotch as a third person introduces the term.
As usual she stays doing the most. I can't with her...

ONTD, if you could be married by a celebrity, who would it be?
Tell us how you really feel, Jon Gosselin.
The former reality star slammed his ex-wife Kate Gosselin in a new interview with Philadelphia Magazine published Friday, Dec. 27, calling the mother of his eight children a handful of not-so-nice things.
"Everyone thinks I'm out to get Kate. I don't give a f-ck!" the 36-year-old Jon & Kate Plus Eight star said, "What would I get out of it? Everyone knows she's an a--hole, you know what I mean? I don't have to—she's proven that!"
He continued to criticize Kate's use of social media, saying it conflicts with their children's upbringing, "She tweets everything. To the world, all about my children. I think it's disgusting and awful. They can't even have a normal life."
It doesn't stop there. Gosselin also alleges that Kate is still trying to be in the spotlight. "Kate wants to still be on television. She's now digging into the past, because that's what sells. Too late, honey. No one gives a f--k, really."
Jon, meanwhile, has been keeping busy with a couple of different things. He currently works as a Maître d' at a restaurant in rural Pennsylvania—a job that he credits "keeps me normal"—and will appear in Season 4 of VH1's Couples Therapy along with girlfriend of two years, Liz Jannetta.
Kate has yet to respond to these comments, however she did recently call out her ex after he made remarks regarding their children's health.
In response to Jon telling Oprah Winfreyon an episode of OWN's Where Are They Now that their eight children have struggled "developmentally," Kate slammed her former husband for making "value judgements...based on his limited visits (albeit mutually agreed upon) with our children."
"I find it very heartbreaking that my children's father chooses a public forum to discuss his current opinions of the 'development' of our children," she wrote on her blog Monday, admitting that she risked "stirring up an unwanted public and private 'frenzy' by commenting on this, but, if our children ever stumble upon that interview, I want to be able to point them to this statement so that they know that I publicly set the record 100% straight on this one, for their sake."
