Liam Hemsworth Is Sexy at 23 (PHOTOS)

Liam-Hemsworth-Sexiest-Looks Liam Hemsworth Liam Hemsworth Liam Hemsworth Liam Hemsworth Liam Hemsworth Liam Hemsworth

Another year, another reason why Liam Hemsworth is still one of Hollywood’s hottest men.

The Hunger Games actor turns the but 2-3 this Sunday, and he’s looking better than ever. Whether he’s suited up on the red carpet or stripped down to his trunks at the beach, the Australian hunk knows how to turn heads — especially when it comes to getting his fiancee Miley Cyrus‘ attention.

According to the 20-year-old Two and a Half Men star, her beau caught her eye immediately when auditioning for their first movie together, The Last Song.

“[When] I met him, and he opened the door for me, and I was like, I have been in L.A. for three years and I don’t think any guy has actually opened the door for me,” she said on Ellen DeGeneres‘s daytime talk show in 2010. “It wasn’t that he wanted the job. That’s just who he is. I was like, ‘Wow, that is super-impressive.’”

“I actually turned to the director and said, ‘He’s got the job.’ He’s hot and he opened the door. Excellent.”

Likewise, Hemsworth is head-over-heels for his ladylove, gushing about Cyrus in an interview with Details last year:

She makes me really happy. When you start [filming a movie], you want to be professional, but when you’re filming those scenes with someone and pretending to love them, you’re not human if you don’t feel something.

To celebrate this Aussie’s birthday, Celebuzz is reliving his sexiest moments over the years.

Miss New York Mallory Hytes Hagan Crowned Miss America (PHOTOS)

Hello, New York!

Mallory Hytes Hagan of New York is bringing the crown to the Big Apple. The 23-year-old beauty from the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn, N.Y. was crowned Miss America 2013 on Saturday night during the annual competition, held in Las Vegas’ Planet Hollywood.

Miss South Carolina, Ali Rogers, was named runner up while Miss Oklahoma, Alicia Clifton placed third.

Hagan, who performed a tap dance to a James Brown song for the talent portion of the competition, took home the big prize of $50,000 in scholarship money, along with a crown and a sash.

During the Q&A section of the competition, the Fashion Institute of Technology (F.I.T.) student answered a tough question about having armed guards in schools.

“I don’t think the proper way to fight violence is with violence. I think the proper way is to educate people on guns and the ways we can use them properly. We can lock them up, we can have gun safety classes, we can have a longer waiting period,” she said.

Hagan, who will now become an advocate for Miss America’s official charity, the Children’s Miracle Network, is the first New York winner in the competition in nearly three decades.

Vanessa Williams took home the prize in 1984, before forcing to resign months later over a nude photo controversy.

Vintage Vergara Is Still Super Sexy (PHOTOS)

Can you say, “Muy caliente?”

Sofia Vergara took at trip down memory lane this week when she shared vintage photos taken from her early days as an actress in Colombia. In one snapshot, the Modern Family actress is seen with her natural blonde roots and flaunting her killer bikini body on the beach.

“Hehe back then in Colombia,” she wrote alongside the racy picture.

On Wednesday, Vergara, 40, posted a childhood pic — where she’s also seen as a blonde  – on her personal Twitter, writing: “Me in Barranquilla during carnaval.”

The now-brunette beauty has come along was since being a single mother in Colombia. This past year, Vergara got engaged to her longtime boyfriend, Nick Loeb.

“I haven’t started planning [the wedding] because everything has been very recent,” she told Celebuzz back in August. “I just planned a very big birthday — my 40th birthday in Mexico. More than 100 people came and celebrated with me and my family, closest friends and co-workers from Modern Family.

“I am kind of, you know, working a lot — I just started the Modern Family season — so I don’t know yet [when I will get married]. No plans.”

Though Vergara currently has a 20-year-old son from a previous relationship, she revealed that she’s hasn’t ruled out having another baby — just like her Modern Family character Gloria.

“It’s something that maybe … one day I’ll do again. I wouldn’t mind,” she said.

“I mean, I think I can still do it. But you know, when you want to do something like that, you want to do it right, at the right moment, so I am taking it easy, so maybe when I have a little less work.”

For now, relive Vergara’s Colombia days in the gallery — above.

Ryan Gosling Says After Doubting Backstreet Boys’ Success, ‘They’re Not Returning My Calls’ (VIDEO)

It’s not secret that Ryan Gosling spent a significant portion of his adolescence on The Mickey Mouse Club, singing and dancing alongside future pop stars like Justin Timberlake on the Disney Channel series.

But in an interview for his new film Gangster Squad, Gosling reveals that he doubted for the future of such pop phenomena as Backstreet Boys when a members of the band first proclaimed their inevitable success.

“When I was doing the Mickey Mouse Club, we were living in the same place as that guy A.J. from the Backstreet Boys,” Gosling tells Celebuzz. “They were just forming that band, so he was saying how big they were going to be – and he had a poster of them in his house.

 

“We were like, it’s never going to happen,” he remembers. “Didn’t they already do that with New Kids? You’re a little late. Cut to… I was wrong.”

Backstreet Boys, of course, went on to become multimillion-selling pop stars, and continue to flourish today – perhaps not coincidentally thanks to a collaboration with forbears New Kids on the Block, entitled NKOTBSB. But Gosling insists that he isn’t regretful he skipped that particular career path in lieu of his current acting career.

“You can’t live in the past,” he says. “You’ve got to live in the now. That ship has sailed.”

Nevertheless, Gosling joked that his efforts to reach out to A.J. since then failed to receive a response. “They’re not returning my calls,” he says. “I try not to think about it.”

Watch Celebuzz’ interview with Gosling above, and the film’s theatrical trailer below. And then let us know in the comments – what do you think of the idea of Baby Goose getting down on stage as a pop star?

Candice Swanepoel Joins Hollywood’s Band of Beach Bums (PHOTO)

Victoria’s Secret model Candice Swanepoel tried to show off her newest present — a bikini — on Twitter, but all eyes were on something else.

On Wednesday, the 24-year-old snapped a photo of her new swimsuit bottoms for her personal Instagram — only to set the internet alight with her sexy curves.

Flaunting her beach bum in a teeny bikini, the blonde beauty wrote:

 

The leggy stunner, who recently graced the cover of Victoria’s Secret’s January 2013 swimwear catalog, told Celebuzz that she tries to balance her workouts in order to keep her rump in tip-top shape.

“I usually use heavier weights on my ankles or the weights that I’m using,” the South African model said. “But for me, I work out two days and then I need a rest day. Then I work another two days, then I rest again. So we’re kind of ready all year round — it’s just about fine-tuning it.”

‘Gangster Squad’ Costume Designer Reveals How Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone Suited Up for the ’40s Crime Story (Q&A)

Gangster Squad, Costumes Gangster Squad, Costumes Gangster Squad, Costumes Gangster Squad, Costumes Gangster Squad, Costumes Gangster Squad, Costumes Gangster Squad, Costumes

Genetics may get all of the credit for movie stars being so darn attractive up on the screen, but truthfully, it’s costume designers who often do most of the work. And over the past two decades, Mary Zophres has helped George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and Jeff Bridges among many others look their best, earning BAFTA and Academy Award nominations in the process.

Most recently, Zophres gave a glamorous sheen to Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone and Josh Brolin in Gangster Squad, a crime thriller that required her to recreate the look of the 1940s in order to bring to life the true story of a group of cops who were assigned the task of taking down one of Los Angeles’ most notorious mob bosses, Mickey Cohen.

Zophres spoke exclusively with Celebuzz about her work on the film, which involved tracking down an extensive collection of period costumes, and assembling new ones that perfectly fitted the ensemble cast, which also includes Sean Penn, Nick Nolte and Anthony Mackie. Additionally, she offered an inside look at a handful of the designs that she came up with as she created the characters’ vintage wardrobes.

Celebuzz: First of all, you did a fantastic job on the costumes in Gangster Squad. I was deeply envious watching those guys walk around in those suits.

Mary Zophres: Well you can do it. I mean, totally. Do you live in L.A.?

CB: Yes, I do.

MZ: There’s a great vintage clothing store called Play Clothes that is on Magnolia, and she has some ’40s suits, a lot of ’50s suits there and they will totally fit you up if you’re in to it. Or take a suit in your closet and just make sure it fits or if you don’t have one, it’s tailoring. That’s the difference between looking good and looking a little shlubby.

CB: Where do you usually start when you are researching something that demands the kind of period detail that Gangster Squad does?

MZ: I start every movie I do, but particularly a movie like a period film, I start doing research. Because it’s based on a true story, there was a lot of visual research on Mickey Cohen and even the gangster squad because there really was a John O’Mara, the character that Brolin plays, there really was a Frank Whalen. [But] we got lots of photos of police detectives from that time period and I looked at a lot of magazines because there’s so many nightclub scenes. And in those days there was magazines called like Photoplay, for instance, and I got like a year or two straight of Photoplay, where you can see candid photos of people out and about, and just to get the feeling of like what people in Los Angeles were looking like and what they were wearing to these nightclubs. We also got movies of people walking in downtown L.A. So we could watch those just to let it sink in, “this is how people looked and dressed in every day life in Los Angeles.” So to make a long story short, [I do] tons of research – a lot of it out of Western Costume; they have a great research library, some of it just online. And then you kind of get ideas, like I based Anthony Mackie‘s character on Jackie Robinson because I couldn’t find any African American detectives in that time period, to be honest with you. Like we took a little bit of license there. So Jackie Robinson, for instance, was an inspiration and there were plenty of research photos on him and you just kind of pick around.

CB: What or who was the inspiration for Emma Stone’s character?

MZ: Emma was a sort of a made-up character, her character Grace Faraday. But I looked to Rita Hayworth and I wanted her to have that sexuality. I mean, she was like Mickey Cohen’s arm candy basically, and so I talked to [director Ruben Flesicher], and he was like, ‘I want her to evoke Rita Hayworth and Lauren Bacall and Gene Tierney.’ So by the time I finish doing my research, I know the script inside and out, and so then it’s just like that’s your reality. I didn’t even look at any other time period piece of clothing or a magazine or anything the whole time I was on Gangster Squad because this was my thing.

CB: Men now are kind of built a little differently than men were then, at least in terms of the way they wore their clothes. How much tailoring did you have to do to suit the actors who were in this film or even just what we perceive as style now as opposed to what was fashionable then?

MZ: Well, the men’s suit back then is different than it is now. A very fashion-forward suit nowadays is shorter — it comes up on a high hip on a man and is more tapered in the leg. It’s a flat front; it has a lower rise. The 1940′s suit has got a stronger shoulder, a niche waist and it’s longer — it just covers the butt. And so the gangster squad, all of their clothes, we made, because every change for those guys ended up having to need a double at some point. And so we built all the clothes for Josh, for Ryan, for Kennard [Robert Patrick], for Ramirez [Michael Pena], for Anthony Mackie’s character. And what we did was we would usually find something that was original, maybe a jacket or a pair of pants from another suit and we would tailor them to the actor, because everybody has different bodies and they’re movie stars and we wanted them to look good. A lot of the fabric came from overseas, from England, from Italy, because we were [looking] for like a textured wool, and then we manufactured it from L.A. tailors who are used to cranking out these large numbers of multiples. We made Josh’s hats, we made Ryan’s hats, and we made Sean Penn‘s hats. And everybody else’s hats we found in stock — there’s great costume houses in L.A. where we could find some really good originals, [but] you have to try a lot of hats on to get the one with the right crown and the right brim. So it was a lot of tailoring and a lot of manufacturing, and for Emma, we built all of her clothes.

CB: Who was the easiest to find a style that matched their personality or the personality of the character with that sort of period detail?

MZ: I thought not only were they enthusiastic and willing to get inside their character and the period, but everybody sort of listened to me when we were talking and prepping. You mentioned that all the men are built differently than they are, and we said try to lay off the heavy weights if you’re going to work out — work out like they did in those days with just push-ups, sit ups, pull-ups. Because you don’t want that big thick body in this time period, and everybody did that. And Josh had a great haircut and he looked great in his fedora, and to me, the minute he put his costume on he looked like he stepped out of the 1940s. And Ryan wears clothes really well. Michael Pena was just very open; he had never really done a period piece before, and it was a huge learning experience for him. Anthony Mackie has done some period work and he totally understood it – they were all so in to it.

CB: Ryan and Emma’s costumes say so much about their characters. How much participation did they have in their costumes, and how much were they reliant on you to sort of find costumes that were appropriate for their characters?

MZ: I think because they both were coming from very busy schedules — like Ryan was on another movie — they were very reliant on my research. I don’t know how to say this without sounding [full of myself], but I sort of guided them – like, this is the world that this movie is and this is how I see your character and how I see your costume. And they were really receptive to this idea and kind of just accepted it, because you have to remember I had been on the movie — not only have I done this time period, and this is my area of expertise, but I had been on it longer than they had. And so they accepted this way to sort of get in to this time period, get in to their character. Emma was like a sponge — she was totally receptive and wanted to know why and who’s and what’s. She was really cooperative. She had to wear undergarments like girdles and we really pinched in her waist. — she’s got such a nice figure, but she is built more contemporary than a girl from the ’40s is. So, we sucked her in like three inches on her waistline and gave her a little bit bigger bust line. She was totally in to it, and of course she has an opinion, but I think she and I [both] realize what works on her and what doesn’t, so it was a very good relationship.

CB: How about Ryan?

MZ: In the beginning, the audience doesn’t know whether [he’s] a gangster or a cop, you know, and neither does people that [he] hangs out with. And so he dresses a little bit more like a gangster and I also think he cares about his appearance and spends the majority of his income on clothes, whereas Josh’s character is much more utilitarian. Like in his mind, [Josh] went from an Army uniform to a cop uniform, and then now that he’s a detective his suit is a uniform. He had maybe five different suits that we put him in in the movie and they all kind of look alike, and that was intentional. Like he doesn’t want to think about his clothes, whereas Ryan’s character, every day he gets dressed and he’s much more dapper and cares about his appearance and he’s still trying to get a lady, too. There’s a comment in the beginning that not for a lack of trying, but he hasn’t had any action in a couple of weeks. So he’s going for it — he’s out every day, out on the town and trying to look as sharp as he possibly can. And then he has a bit of an arc, [because] as he gets more and more in to being a member of the gangster squad, he becomes a little bit more serious, like you’ll see him wear ties a little bit more often at work as opposed to just an open-collared shirt. That was an intentional arc for his character, just because he cares more — he’s trying to be a member of the squad and be more like what was considered appropriate for a detective to wear in those days.

CB: How feasible do you feel like it is for someone to be influenced by this and take that style now? Do you feel like there’s a way to sort of borrow that and bring it in to sort of a modern, the modern day?

MZ: Oh, absolutely. I think that if the guy was going to purchase some clothes, I think it’s a more formal outward appearance than some people have nowadays, I often think the 1940′s silhouette is quite flattering. So if they did go and purchase ’40s clothes, it’s an intention to tailoring because basically I think that’s what sets the ’40s silhouette apart from some other time periods — the shoulder fits, the waist fits, the sleeve length fits, the pants fit. It’s a formality and attention to tailoring and detail that it works in any time period I think.

CB: Do you have a favorite costume that you designed for this film, or even a favorite character that you worked?

MZ: I love Emma’s red dress — I have to say that red dress to me is a showstopper. I love the cream dress also that she wears when she catches Ryan breaking in to Mickey’s house, but it’s such a short scene you don’t really get a good glimpse at it. But I loved all of her clothes. And also there’s – there was a pimp in the movie that had a huge part got way cut down, but it was my first zoot suit that I ever designed and had built and that was a lot of fun. But I guess it’s Emma’s clothes I really enjoyed doing, just finding those gowns. It was fun because I didn’t copy an original design. That red gown was directly built from my sketch and it was very satisfying to see it go from an idea in my brain on to paper and then into a garment and then on to an actress’s body. To me that red dress is a showstopper. I think she looked fantastic in it and so I have to say that’s probably my favorite.

‘Gangster Squad’: How Arresting is Ryan Gosling’s Crime Thriller?

More things should have Ryan Gosling and Tommy guns. It’s science, really.

Thankfully, Gangster Squad agrees with us. The new film from Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer features Gosling and Josh Brolin as police detectives in 1940s Los Angeles, working outside the law to take down real-life crime boss, Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn). Emma Stone also stars as the requisite femme fatale.

While Squad has plenty of Gosling and cops ‘n robbers action, is it worth your hard-earned money at the box office? Read on to hear what the critics have to say.

Devin Faraci, BadassDigest

“Do not expect much from Gangster Squad. This is not LA Confidential 2… This is not a hard-hitting film. This is not a movie with much to say. Gangster Squad is a big cartoon, a pulpy movie made by people who only know pulp from reading about it in movie reviews… And if you approach it like that, you’ll enjoy the movie just fine.”

Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

“To be fair, this tawdry dose of pulp fiction (“inspired by real events”) is not a complete waste of time. It offers the marginal pleasure of an all-star cast slumming their way through a thicket of routine plotting, almost laughable dialogue and the constant blaze of tommy guns.”

Charlie Schmidlin, ThePlaylist

“With his third feature, Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer frames 1940s Los Angeles — morally compromised, glamorous, and a monument to protect and exploit on both sides of the law — to adapt Paul Lieberman’s true-crime articles into cinematic legend, but in lieu of any sharp insight into the period and its notorious figures, the film’s brash, ultraviolent encounters instead build a showy exterior with nothing of import left standing.”

Peter Debruge, Variety

“The cops play things as dirty as the crooks in Gangster Squad, an impressively pulpy underworld-plunger that embellishes on a 1949 showdown between a dedicated team of LAPD officers and Mob-connected Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) for control of the city.”

James Rocchi, GeekNation

Combining the retro-L.A. style of L.A. Confidential, the candy-colored visuals of ‘Dick Tracy’ and entirely too much of The Untouchables, Gangster Squad doesn’t so much fail to succeed on its own merits, but instead fails because it lacks any merits of its own.”

Ouch. Those are same damning reviews… But what do you think? Drop your review in the Comments below. And watch the trailer now on Celebuzz!
