Maggie Gyllenhaal has been in little, indie flicks (Secretary), Oscar bait (Crazy Heart), and blockbusters (The Dark Knight), but Hysteria is the very first time she’s been in a film about vibrators. The story follows a Victorian-era doctor as he comes up with a device to help ladies, and ironically he’s not the one particular who is deemed a menace to society—instead, it’s Gyllenhaal’s character, Charlotte Dalrymple, the outspoken crusader for women’s and children’s rights. With her own household growing—her second youngster Gloria was born final month—Gyllenhaal sat down with ELLE.com to speak about how becoming a mother has affected her alternative in films, and why she’s not turned on by most film sex scenes.
ELLE: This isn’t the initial time you are starring in a film that offers with female sexuality. What’s the draw for you?
Maggie Gyllenhaal: I assume everybody’s interested in sex and sexuality. I assume it’s a portion of being human, and film is an interesting spot to explore that, specifically since I think sex has been explored in film in a way that is quite unreal and very a lot based in fantasy. When I see sex scenes in movies that are real and totally free, like my personal encounter of sex, they’re so a lot sexier. I guess it’s a nod of subtle feminism to be able to express it from a woman’s points of view what true sex is like—where it is not like you are wearing a black demi-cup Victoria’s Secret bra and it’s lit perfectly and you are arching your back—it’s not like that!

American Idol has been one particular of the most well-known shows on television for more than ten years now. Immediately after numerous judging panel shake ups, a few rule modifications, countless Grammy and Tony awards, and even an Oscar win, the show (and its contestants) are nonetheless going strong. This season, the show’s eleventh, is no exception: Lovable characters, amazing music, and stiff competition still drive every episode.
Final week, we covered a handful of popular contestants on this season’s American Idol, with style profiles of Elise Testone, Colton Dixon, Phillip Phillips, and Jessica Sanchez. The two finalists will be announced tonight, and to celebrate, we’re featuring the special styles of a few far more of our preferred contests!
“Frivolity is a healthy attitude,” Karl Lagerfeld explains about his “Versailles in a Socialist France” collection for Cruise ’13. “I know folks who were saved by frivolity.” Meaning 18th century deets & silhouettes – like bottom-heavy panniers – in lightweight 21st century chambrays, tech-forward denim and even plastic. Plus ruffles. And sneakers – but with platforms to make them much more Marie Antoinette-approved.
Above the neck, Peter Phillips, Inventive Director of Chanel Makeup opted for tres let-them-eat-cake shades of rose and petal pink and particular runway-only mini velvet “tattoos” of the iconic interlocking-Cs logo. Along with Sam McKnight’s Dutch-boy bobs in pastel hues, the overall impact, according to Phillips, was meant to evoke “girly” but “rebel”.
The query I am asking right here is that with a physique like Millie Mackintosh’s why wouldn’t you show it off… on Twitter… in front of thousands of followers? The second question I am asking is do you like her bondage style bikini?
That’s proper, I like to tackle life’s hard concerns. Err…
The Produced in Chelsea starlet has taken to her Twitter account to post a photo of herself modelling some rather flamboyant swimwear. Snapped in what seems to be a bathroom, the shot shows the Quality Street heiress bare-faced and donning a black wrapped bikini. She added: “Can’t wait to put on my new Huit bikini in Ibiza subsequent week! #summer.”
Just shortly right after appearing pregnant on i-D‘s cover—styled by her mother Carine, of course—Julia Restoin-Roitfeld has given birth to her initial child with partner Robert Konjic.
“We are delighted to confirm that Julia and Robert have had a healthy baby girl,” Next publicist Katy Moseley said in an official statement. “Both mother and daughter are performing quite well and resting at home.”
New grandmother—or “Madame,” as she reportedly prefers to be called—Carine has to jet off to Cannes shortly for the style show she’s staging, but we’re sure that, particularly considering that her initial grandchild is a girl, some child Tom Ford or Givenchy is currently getting planned.
Julia Restoin-Roitfeld had her baby, according to a tweet from the often-in-the-know Derek Blasberg. “Congratulations to proud Momma @RestoinRJulia! (And thus, the chicest grannie ever: Carine Roitfeld!) Can not wait to meet the stunning infant!” he wrote. Which means, of course, that Carine Roitfeld, she of the pencil skirts and stilettos and porn-chic-ness, is a grandmother. Just do not anticipate her to answer to grandma (or grannie). She reportedly would like to be named “Madame.”
Cue the infant Givenchy…
