    Great idea! Thanks JJ….. Glad for once we can make POSITIVE comments about Kate on JJ and not get a thumbs down. Those haters are positively maniacal.

  • Jennifer

    @Emma:

    She did seem to have to think about that for awhile. Hey Kate, how about supporting the ones you already SAID you’d support?

  • little m

    KB looks good in this picture. JM is mentioned in the post. So congrats – mission of this commercial is accomplished. KB is very well known for her charity work & actions, especially lately, since she stood up foster kids just a few weeks ago. I understand it’s business, even show business, but this… shame on you.

  • burnt bacon

    So my comment is awaiting moderation. Not enough butt-kissing?

  • whosthatbitch

    50% of sales? That’s not bad, really. Is that before or after deducting costs? I’m honestly curious.
    It’s never wrong to raise awareness. It would just be so much less worthy of a massive eye-roll if celebrities (I’m including Jared here) did it with just a touch less self-promotion. The charities don’t care whose image is polished in the process but people who donate time and money ALL the time without making videos about it? Those are the ones I respect. It’s not exactly “giving back” when you’re simply making a bit less money and get to promote yourself in the process.

  • Di

    My comment must come with a confession: I signed on for JewelMint. I was curious, okay?! I’ve never ordered a piece of it. Haven’t wanted to, as I generally browse my monthly selections with an expression of disgust. Speaking of monthly selections… Here is the payoff. The Brixton earrings they’re talking about in this post were introduced in a collection several months ago. What?! It’s true. Like maybe November or December 2010? These EXTRA fugly earrings didn’t sell–because they are EXTRA fugly–and she’s disguising her attempt to clear out the lingering stock as a charitable effort. Boom!

  • marq

    As if Jared couldn’t make this site a total cult of personality all worshiping him, if he only wanted to, with all his mad skills.

    I don’t think we see enough of him, as it is.

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o L

    …Hahahahahahahahaa. Oh man, this is fcuking hilarious. Someone wants to be a celebrity really bad.

  • burnt bacon

    Since you guys are totally besties now, will you be posting about her ten times a day instead of just five? Will it be bumped up to fifteen when she starts the Kate Bosworth/JJ School for Kids Who Don’t Read Good and Want to Learn How to Do Other Stuff Better Too?
    .
    Oh, and stans/PR wage slaves? Any business that claims they’ll donate X percentage of each sale to a charity is just using a cheap emotional manipulation tactic to shill something that isn’t selling very well to begin with. When a company pulls this crap it makes me want to buy the product even less and instead donate directly to the advertised cause so that it gets ALL of my donation, and I don’t end up with a product that I didn’t really want in the first place.
    .
    Then again, I’m cynical when it comes to She Who Can Do No Wrong and From Whose Arse the Sun Shines Brightly, considering she got caught smoking outside a function for a cancer charity and claimed to be a fan of animal rights despite wearing fur.

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o L

    @Tastiger: The reason Bosworthless threads get a lot of thumbs downs is because more people on this site dislike her, point blank. hell, she barely has any fans on here simply because she sucks. Jared only removed the thumbs because he’s on the thread with her. Why not remove the thumbs on a Jolie/Pitt thread when you know what’s up. It’s corny.

  • Rachel()

    @Just Jared: I miss the ratings! I don’t really care about thumbing ppl down, but I like to give ppl points when they’re being really clever! Can we not at least give positive ratings?

  • burnt bacon

    @I n F a m o u s l y C o o L: To be fair, the thumbs up/thumbs down seems to be missing for the whole site.

  • lol

    for the time being merrick can’t get all her “students” and “children” to thumbs down posts that she doesn’t agree with!! lol.

  • burnt bacon

    @Rachel(): I personally like the feature because it makes it easier to avoid the “ur jus jellus u meenie” posts from the stans, since they tend to get voted down pretty quick. The slippery little buggers have so many sockpuppets that you can’t filter them out by username.

  • chelle

    @D: this is to supposedly prove she does charity work since she crapped on the foster kids to show her boobs ….not impressed at all. She is such a narcissistic bitch who can’t stand to be last place at anything ….acting fashion personality or even flashing the world her gross deformed looking body ….just saying

  • Joey

    LOL at all the “shame on you, she’s doing a great thing” comments. Look, doing charity is a good thing, when the effort is to help other people and the intention is in the right place. We’re talking about someone who blew off a charity event to hang out at the beach and is “running” a business that isn’t doing as well as she wanted and is trying to kill off two birds with one stone. If she wanted to really be charitable, why not donate the jewelry and 100% of the proceeds go to the foundation?

    This isn’t charity, it’s shameless self-promotion packeged up like charity. She needs the sales, the charity needs any spotlight and funds it can get, it was a business decision, not a charitable one.

  • Rachel()

    @Di: Lol! Knew I’d seen those. Thumbs up!
    @burnt bacon: I look at those anyways. Thumbs up on post #59!

  • itziar

    wow you look amazing in this photo, jared

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o L

    …I think the thumbs sucks anyways. It allows the many to control the few. Shite’s lame. People should be allowed to have a fcuking opinion.

  • How about this?

    I’ll agree to donate to your charity by way of your little shill’s crap-tastic jewelry when she agrees to drop the famewh@ring routine, mkay? Seriously, Jared? Foster kids. She stood up foster kids. For boob pics. Foster. Kids. What is the matter with you?

  • chelle

    @sarajaye: if Kate really gave a damn about charity she wouldn’t have blown off. The foster kidz to show her tits to the world. Yea she’s a great role model …..anorexic narcissistic freak …..I support charities ..alot. in fact I just gave my check to aid families whose lives were destroyed during recent tornadoes …I would have given blood but having had leukemia I’m not allowed. I do walks for diabetes cancer aids ….I do not hawk crappy ass jewelry that no one wants and say its for charity. These celebrities make me sick with crap like this. You want to do something …give until it hurts …not like they don’t have the means …..sorry for the rant. Just sick of people saying “haters are just jealous “. Walk in my shoes with actual devastation of an entire region. Then ask yourselves how charitable you really are.

  • Shannon

    This video is ass kissing on another level, lmao. Why is he even talking about jewelery? Its not like he’s gonna be wearing long, hippy earrings.

  • Please

    How generous. Half price on ONE SET OF EARRINGS.

  • hannah2

    @Simi:
    It is being done to sell more jewlery. A tactic m=used by most businesses. It is not the monthly crap she puts out, it is a piece you have to buy besides the monthly crap. Therefore, incrfease membership and sell more crap!

  • hannah2

    @Justin Campbell:
    AGAIN it is not charitable. It is a business move. the aim is not to contribute to a charity, but to raise membership in their jewelclub. Will you people stop being sheep and think a little?!!

  • Emily

    It actually blows my mind how phony this woman comes off in interviews.

  • hannah2

    @I n F a m o u s l y C o o L:
    the thumbs up/down aree removed on other pieces too.

  • didjanotice

    Kate – what are you passionate about? p-a-u-s-e I would like to help women in war torn countries. Sounds great, how about picking a war torn country and doing something instead of saying that you are passionate about doing nothing but thinking about what you would like to do that sounds admirable.

  • Dieter

    JARED – I JUST TOTALLY CAME ON THE ASS OF HER’S !!!!!

  • Me

    It’ll be a cold day in hell before I buy any of that crappy jewelry. What a scam. I can donate 100% to the charity by going to their site. So sorry, Jared. No sale.

  • Dieter

    Does she have an IQ of 160 ++++ or what ????? She is sooo intelligent !!!!!

  • Chelsea the bish Handler

    Some of you need to get out a little more. and face life’s realities, LOL.:

    JJ is not going to stop posting about her. Alex is not leaving her. Alex is not going to not date anyone because you old azz women are having a fricking fit about it., and…….even though I don;’t care for Kate as an actress but hey,,she is donating to charity, good for her.

    Some of you are crazy for real, step from behind the computer and embrace the reality of life. Alex would not date your bi -polar azzez anyways.

    Whew!!! now I said it, got it off my chest!!!

    I’m glad JJ removed the thumbs button, most of you are big Bullies !!

  • lulu

    I like turtles

  • ladybug

    @Jennifer: Well, being honest and saying that she was doing it so people would forget that she blew off a charity event so she could toast her ta-tas, that probably wasn’t going to happen. I would have admired her honesty, though.

  • nkenk

    YOU PEOPLE ARE RIDICULOUS. Yes, jared has celebrities friends thats what happens when you blog about them and stuff for a living but at least he’s not open criticizing and kissing people’s asses like Perez Hilton and Gaga. Sheesh

  • Wilhelmina

    Why all this hate for Kate??? What has she EVER done to any of you? The ONLY reason you hate on her so much is because you are a huge Skarsgård fan and can’t stand that this pretty girl is dating your fave actor. It’s really absurd.

  • lafamepoma

    I think that you are the least person to give lessons to us, teens, cause U first have to face up your own problems like almost anorexia, so please don’t so pathetic and do good things for the world, Greenpeace, Save the Children, Unicef, Intermon Oxfam and more…. We don’t need your earrings.

  • chelle

    Still waiting on tackymint tampons!!!! Maybe she will donate proceeds from that to charity …knowing what a freak she is maybe even model them for us ..maybe then she will get the attention she is so desperate for

  • Smiley

    Can’t anyone donate some FOOD to Bonesworth? Or better yet, force feed her so she doesn’t look like a walking skeleton with a lollipop head. Now that would be charity indeed.

  • Doreen

    She isn’t a bad looking girl in the face, though he body is way too thin but you can tell this picture was heavily edited and highly lit.

  • Michelle

    Really Jared? I expected more from you… and thought you seemed cool.. with the Asian invasion.. But Kate Bosworth and miss nobody Rachel Bilson.. give me a break? I’d rather see pics and read posts of Katerina Graham and Keira Knightly rather than Bosworth & Bilson.

  • Jessie

    Wonder what Alex was yelling about, and who he was on the phone with?

  • freakinhilarious

    @Wilhelmina:” Why all this hate for Kate??? What has she EVER done to any of you?”

    My ears are still trying to recover from her singing, my brain is trying to see past her lack of acting skills and my moral compass is having a really hard time getting past the whole selfish bitch part of her.

    Jared, you’re a whore just like her.

  • Michelle

    Kate B and Rachel Bilson are talentless and most wish they would just go away! I’d rather give directly to the Red Cross, Save the Children, Save Japan than to this.. eeek.. Jared I don’t hate you I just can’t stand Bosworth and Bilson who are full of themselves..

  • Mamabear

    I said I was going to ignore this vile creature but I’m compelled to post here ONE more time. I’ve worked retail for years and I can tell you from experience that this is a ploy to sell old stock. The charity part is legit, but the business aspect is underhanded. First they don’t specify if the 50% is from net or gross and they limit it to ONE item. Anyone wanting to take part in this charity drive will have to sign up for jewelmint, thereby driving their membership numbers up, which looks good on paper even if they don’t buy anything. I am approached every year at Christmas by various charities asking for donations (I’m over the toy dept.) and corporate rule of thumb is “donate whatever we can’t sell” so I would end up donating toys and stuffed animals so outdated that we had to clean the dust off them before handing them over to the charities. This whole post is nothing more than an attempt to bail out a floundering company. If you want to help this charity then donate directly to them, then you will know exactly what they’re getting.
    Once again, I’m outta here.

  • hello

    She’s good actress, she’s beautiful women and she’s better than Paltry!!!

  • Ladybug

    @didjanotice: To say what war torn countries, or what charities would mean that she would actually have to care about, and perhaps even study, what’s going outside of her little world.
    Funny thing is, there are charities out there that do focus on the more ‘artistic/artsy-craftsy’ stuff, providing looms, yarn, equipment, etc. for women to make clothes, rugs, jewelry. These would seem like a better fit for the fashionista that she wants to be.
    Instead, she comes of as one of those people to whom doing charity work is not a passion, but a way to burnish the image.

  • Yeah, but…

    @Chelsea the bish Handler: “Alex is not leaving her.” Okay, but how in the name of all that is sane do we rope him into marrying her and taking her to Sweden? Permanently. Somebody please make her stop. Holy freaking God.

    Oh and @Wilhelmina, google is your friend. Little tip. People tend to frown on hypocrisy, homewrecking, lies, an unwarranted sense of entitlement, and general famewh0ring. Did I mention the homewrecking? I’m not sure how you’d like to categorize the bit about her extending her vacation so she could pose topless in Mexico in lieu of attending a scheduled charity event for foster children. I’d file that under “stupidly disgusting” myself, but that’s just me.

  • Ladybug

    @Yeah, but…: What did Sweden ever do to you to warrant her being dumped on them!? She could suddenly develop a conscience and join the Peace Corps and go off to Sudan to teach jewelry design.

  • Dieter

    I still remember that love scene from 21 !!!!!! Best love scene ever !!!!!! Kate is so talented !!!!!!!
