30 Rock's Tina Fey Is An Intuitive, Acquisitive, Self-Deceiver

Even though there was a Feyvelanche of Tina interviews when Baby Mama came out last month, did we really learn anything about her? Sure, her face was on the cover of Marie Claire, but the interview inside was a farce (example, "Amy Poehler: Is your name Karen Felcher? Tina Fey: Um, no, although I can see why you're… » 5/13/08 3:40pm 5/13/08 3:40pm

Heroes' Sexy Kristen Bell Has The Handwriting Of A Hermit; Kidnapper

Just how many blondes are there on the show Heroes? And how many of them have been on the cover of Cosmopolitan over the past year? I don't know the answer to that first question — I've never watched the show — but as to the second, the answer is, three. (Someone at NBC primetime publicity is giving his/her bosses… » 5/02/08 1:00pm 5/02/08 1:00pm

Dear Cosmo Girl Hayden "Heroes" Panettiere: "Better To Be The Turtle…

It's almost spring, so it's probably fitting that Cosmopolitan has decided to put Heroes actress Hayden Panettiere on the cover of its April issue (right next to the words "SEX GENIUS" in 64-point type!). Not only is Panettiere a budding star — after she gets her first big, silver-screen role her handlers will no… » 3/13/08 3:20pm 3/13/08 3:20pm

Cosmo Girl Rihanna: "Solitary & Self-Involved"

Grammy-winner Rihanna is the March Cosmopolitan cover girl! Unfortunately, she shares the space with a huge pink VA-JAY-JAY. Poor thing. Her parents probably won't want to frame that. Anyway, the singer filled out the "Cosmo Quiz," writing that, if she wasn't a singer she'd love to be a pilot, and that her purse is… » 2/11/08 1:30pm 2/11/08 1:30pm

Decoding Cosmo Cover Girl Katie Heigl: "She Refuses To Waste Time With…

Katherine Heigl didn't seem to take the "Cosmo Quiz" — the written Q&A actresses are forced to take to qualify as a Cosmopolitan cover subject — very seriously. For most of the questions, such as "I think it's sexy when a guy..." and, "My favorite male co-star has been..." she circled all five multiple choice options… » 1/18/08 2:00pm 1/18/08 2:00pm

Cosmo Girl Hilary Duff: Intuitive, Practical And Younger Than She Looks

Happy (early) New Year! For its January issue, Cosmopolitan interviews singer/actress Hilary Duff, who talks about her hockey player boyfriend, becoming an adult, and how obsessing about weight just leads to unhappiness. (Something we could all do well to remember.) Not exactly enticing stuff, to be sure, but, as… » 12/11/07 2:30pm 12/11/07 2:30pm

Cosmo Girl Beyonce Knowles: Detail-Oriented, Thoughtful, Possibly…

It's been a while since our last Signature Psychoses, and that's because Cosmopolitan, the magazine we've come to know and rely on for celebrity scribblings, suddenly wasn't serving them up anymore. What a difference a month makes! For its December issue, Cosmo is back with both a celebrity cover model - Beyonce… » 11/26/07 10:30am 11/26/07 10:30am

'Cosmo' Cover Girl Ali Larter: Self-Involved, Stubborn, Easily…

Analyzing handwriting is fun! And once again, it's time for an analysis of Cosmopolitan's "Cosmo Quiz". See, every month "The #1 Women's Magazine" includes a spread of illuminating scribbles donated by that month's cover girl. Up for October: Heroes actress Ali Larter. After the jump, our favorite graphologist, Sheila… » 9/17/07 3:00pm 9/17/07 3:00pm

'Cosmo' Cover Girl Jessica Alba: Emotionally Unavailable, Intuitive,…

Analyzing handwriting is fun! And while we were all set to have the chicken scratches in Lucky analyzed, we were informed by a Lucky rep that, sadly, staffers do not actually pen the purple-prose laden "Editor's Picks" in every issue. (That "honor" goes to the magazine's art directors). Such is not the case in … » 8/21/07 2:00pm 8/21/07 2:00pm

Does 'Teen Vogue' Editor Amy Astley Let Anna Wintour Sign Her Name For…

In September 2000 Amy Astley, then a beauty editor at Vogue, wrote a story about saying "ciao to hanging hair" and cutting a "chic, sleek bob." Know any other editor with a chic, sleek bob, folks? In short, Amy — now the editor-in-chief of Teen Vogue — takes her hairstyle cues from Anna Wintour, which is appropriate… » 8/13/07 11:00am 8/13/07 11:00am

'InStyle' Editor Charla Lawhon: Friendly, Outgoing, Fast Thinker!

Charla Lawhon was part of the original team of editors during InStyle's 1993 test period at Time Inc. She was later appointed deputy editor of InStyle in 1994, and became executive editor in December 1998. According to one Jezebel, who has worked for her, she is the nicest boss that Jezebel has ever had: down to… » 8/10/07 11:00am 8/10/07 11:00am

'Glamour' Editor Cindi Leive: Smart, Sensitive...OMG We're Really…

Cindi Leive was the daughter of a scientist mom who attended the nation's nerdiest and most self-serious liberal arts college and interned at the Paris Review ... all so she could grow up to edit Glamour?

'Elle' Magazine's Roberta Myers: Creative, Cautious, Constant

Compared to its fashion magazine cousins, Elle is one tough, slightly-feminist chick. One of the few women's titles unafraid of its own (or its readers') intelligence, Elle is overseen by one Roberta 'Robbie' Myers, who, unlike her editrix peers, is not much of a glamourpuss/press whore... mostly because she wants it… » 8/08/07 12:00pm 8/08/07 12:00pm

'Cosmopolitan' Editor Kate White: Infuriatingly Even-Keeled

The success of the magazine she oversees has long been contingent on exploiting female anxieties (Shouldn't he have asked you to marry him yet? Maybe it's because you're not a good enough cuddler? Or because you talk too much? But it's probably because you can't give a blow-job to save your life!) and then 'solving'… » 8/06/07 11:30am 8/06/07 11:30am

'Marie Claire' Editor Joanna Coles Has Huge Handwriting, Frontal Lobe

Time for another incredibly revealing look at women's magazine editor signatures. Next up: Marie Claire editor Joanna Coles, who took over the helm of the Hearst magazine 15 months ago.
