Scarlett Johansson is, like, totally hot for Joseph Gordon-Levitt. That's right, she may be too sexy for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo director David Fincher, but she's apparently just sexy enough for Joseph. Various big-mouthed friends and sources say the saucy little minxes were seen kissing in NYC last month and grabbed some chow together back in July. Which in tabloid speak means only one thing — adult cuddles! If it's true, then mad props to ScarJo; between this and a rumored Bradley Cooper fling girlfriend be getting what's hers in the wake of her Ryan Reynolds break-up. [US]

Sure to raise the ire of "real" hard-working moms everywhere, Katie Holmes put her foot in it when she dared to discuss how she balances the pressures of employment and motherhood. "As an actress who is also a mother, you don't have the luxury of drama," she told Marie Claire. Granted, she probably has an army of nannies at her disposal but stress is relative. Oh, okay: attack winged monkeys, attack! Go for the eyes! [Celebuzz]

It looks like Alec Baldwin was prepping for work at Occupy Wall Street the other night, because just the next day the rest of the 30 Rock crew were out and about filming a protest of their own. With Tracy Morgan and special guest Denise Richards thrown into the mix, Liz Lemon took to the streets to talk about the bigger picture: "Can I share with you my worldview? All of humankind has one thing in common: the sandwich. I believe that all anyone really wants in this life is to sit in peace and eat a sandwich." Fact. [Vulture]

I suspect the reason Kate Winslet comments on this so much is because A. she's been asked about it for nearly her entire career 2. When she was younger she was constantly called "fat" by the media and relentlessly hounded about her weight 3. Just about every actress I've met has serious weight and image related concerns. They don't go away because the industry comments on it constantly. I would hazard to say a goodly amount of them all have some kind of body dysmorphia. It's really that bad.

The scale for actresses and your average woman is so incredibly different it's bizarre. Most of the actresses considered "curvy" would be tiny in every other circumstance. And I mean, -tiny-. I've been around some well known actresses who are considered "voluptuous" and they are miniscule in every sense. If more people saw some of these actresses next to "real life" slim women, you'd start to see how off the scale is. And then there are the "bigger" actresses, who are either just average size or not tiny...and they worry about this a lot because it's constantly commented on. Actresses who are taller, athletically, or have any kind of curve, get lumped into the "bigger" category automatically and it is constantly commented on by casting agents, directors, media, etc.

A few examples that come to mind...an author who wrote some Buffy books based on the show had to leave out the actresses actual sizes because they didn't want to give girls reading them complexes because the main actresses were so small. Amber Benson, who is quite slim, talked about this quite a bit as she was often asked when she was on it about how it felt to be so "curvy". She pointed out that in reality she's not and she pointed out it was a comparison thing. She was worried that girls would get the wrong idea, because of that scale issue.

Similarly, I was at an event with Jennifer Love Hewitt and Cameron Manheim. Hewitt is often portrayed as "curvy" and Manheim as "plus sized". Manheim is completely and totally average, a little on the taller side. Hewitt is so small it was startling. So, sure, in comparison Manheim is "plus". But in reality? No.

I have zero issue with the fact that actresses are often on a smaller scale in every way, height, weight, features. I'm very short myself. The problem is that most people don't have any idea that it's not equivalent to "average" in the slightest, so comparing the average woman to the average actress is like comparing...I don't even know. Something that's teeny to something that's just small or average.
