    I’m more impressed by celebrities who donate to causes quietly, without expecting recognition. Like say, Sandra Bullock. It’s kind of despicable to promote your “generosity.” Also, why only 50% of the proceeds off one pair of earrings? Is jewelmint doing that bad that they can’t donate more? Or use sales from multiple pieces?

  • Lilla

    I’m from Sweden, we don’t want her here either.

  • http://viking65 mforman

    Jared, you are noy suppossed to pick favorites, but your relationship with KB and Cher is not right. If this charity is so important to you than have people donate money, not purchase ugly, cheaply made earrings in which KB and Cher make money.

    You need to draw the line somewhere and you have crossed it in a major way. Now I know why she receives the posts that she does.

    You should concentrate on AS, the one that has the talent, heart and the loyalty of all he works with, he is not known as a famewhore pariah in all of HW.

  • Kingster

    @Lilla:
    Hmmm…I think we have a problem here. The United States don’t want her, Sweden don’t want her. I’m British and I heard she has some royal English blood in her but the thing is, WE don’t want her either. I’m pretty sure all the other countries in the world feel the same way.
    .
    Where the F/ck should we ship off this little blonde mosquito to????
    Do you think the penguins in Antarctica would mind her being there?
    It’s not like she would eat their fish. As skinny as she is she would soon freeze to death and voila! more food for the seals and penguins!! :D

  • SweetCharity

    Of all the transparent loads of self-promotion dressed as charity, this is the worst. There are charities that you can donate to directly like Community Aid Abroad, or Oxfam or CARE or Doctors Without Borders that will ensure your money gets where its needed. And she REALLY needs to educate herself on where the problem areas of the world are, so she doesn’t come off like an a$$hat in interviews.

  • bmc

    great for you to do this!! it’s admirable and hope the best for it. don’t listen to the commenters and their inane, negative posts. it’s a great thing you’re doing.

    LOL!!! Norway doesn’t want her either…hmmmm…I think you may be on to something. I vote yes to Antarctica!

  • MERRICK

    Kate Bosworth wants to help women “in the most devastating areas of the world’,…Would that be at a sample sale where they have nothing in your size? A coffee house when they’ve run out of your favorite blend? A red carpet where you’re ignore?
    *
    KB has never actively lent her voice to a charity before, except for the recent charity for foster kids in NY..ooops! she famewh*red topless in Mexico rather than attend that, so that doesn’t count. I guess I’m just suspect that this is about selling Tackymint November selection earrings that didn’t quite sell.

    There’s nothing lamer or more despicable than using a charity to self promote and unload cheap,ugly over priced costume jewelry.Funny that Jewelmint has never disclosed how much they gave from the 10% donation of the ugly piece they were trying to unload in the guise of charity to Japan. Nor have they said how much money was raised for the Rachel Bilson earrings.How…….curious.

  • Foofa

    I’m sorry, but she has no depth as an actress. I have yet to see her in a role where she shows real emotion besides being the ‘pretty girl.” I think she should try romcoms. Maybe she could find success in that area, and let the serious actors stick to the dramas.

  • Rachel()

    Wait. Am I wrong, or didn’t someone post a link once about how Kate owns NO stock in Jewelmint? Was that you Merrick? She’s not making a sacrifice. She’s not losing any money. She’s just getting credit.
    I work retail for a soul-sucking, satan spawned corporation(seriously…think Wolfram and Hart), and they at least regularly have days where they’ll give 10% of all purchases to various charities. Sh*tmint must be in real financial danger or the owners are just greedy as h*ll.
    Not to mention, if any Jewelmint customers(assuming there are any) wanted those fugly things, they would have bought them forever ago, when they first came out.

  • Amanda

    wow, i have yet to see one other post with this many comments! no wonder they tell us everything about her life.

  • MERRICK

    @Rachel():

    I never heard that about the stock. I had posted about the actual designer of JM.

  • it’smeagainmargaret

    @Amanda: Her threads tend to become chat rooms more than anything else, hence the high number of posts. It’s like every post that mentions Kristen Stewart or Robert Pattinson over on Ted C’s site becomes a twihard chat room. I enjoy the different discussions and sometimes the arguments that arise are very entertaining.

  • AG

    Y’know, I wish someone would come up with an app (or something) that translate’s her statement’s and then gives the actual truth…I think that would be interesting (I don’t know what you’d call it but feel free to offer up any idea’s?)

    So Boswaste says ‘I can’t eat when I’m stressed, it’s the same with my Mum & sister etc’ then it’s translated to what she means ‘I can’t eat because I am in the movie business & if I do I’d never get (even a crappy) role again..ever’
    and
    ‘I’d really like to thank you for being here to talk about this charity today blah blah blah’ is then translated to ‘I’d really like to thank you for continuing to attempt to make me relevant as you are one of only three sites on the web that actually posts about me these days’

    Sound good? Btw, we can’t have her in Australia either…unless we get to take away her crack & tie her to a chair force feed her beer and meat pies

    @MERRICK: The actual quote is devastating, not devastated?
    Antarctica, the penguins shouldn’t suffer so much. She could teach basket weaving in the Maldives. OTOH, they’ll be under water in a few decades, so they’re also suffering. Perhaps Mars?

    @Rachel(): I read it in an article about Tyra Banks but wasn’t able to post a link. It said she wasn’t a stockholder unlike Tyra who is in most of if not all her corporations.

    @ladybug:

    Yep, she said devastating. It’s around 1:50 on the video.

    As far as where she should be sent, I think she should be put on a garbage scow and set adrift in the ocean.

  • eww

    Such a pathetic ugly chick ewww

  • Phony philanthropists!!!

    So, after watching the little video I’m left with this impression- Kate and Cher would like to support some sort of organizations that help women in war torn countries (Kate) and help artistic/creative youth (Cher)?…It’s really great that they’d like to someday find organizations that do those things. Wait a minute, though…there are already lots of organizations that help those people, so why aren’t they already supporting them?!. These are 2 women with, apparently, lots of free time, but they just haven’t had the chance to find charities to support- however, they do have the time to sit around with JJ TALKING about how they’d like to help others. At least JJ has already been involved with his charity- KB and CC couldn’t name one organization that they already support!

  • Di

    I found two things very interesting about that Tyra Banks article. Here’s one: “…it’s not beyond belief that Kate Bosworth gives the okay on some of the selections on JewelMint, there’s nothing in SEC filings to suggest either is a significant shareholder.” The writer basically assumes that Kate doesn’t do much designing and just approves pieces after they’re finished. Without being involved as a shareholder, her payment isn’t based on the success of the venture. Second quote: “So it makes sense that she’ll net more for her endorsement than Kardashian or Bosworth.” From her ENDORSEMENT. Not from her “work” or her “designs”, etc. Again, she is probably paid a lump sum–maybe on a monthly basis–because she CHOSE that over taking a chance by investing in her own business. Now this article seems largely speculative, in that they didn’t confirm details about Kim or Kate’s involvement with their websites, but still… They were willing to put the above in print for people to draw their own conclusions.

  • Sofie

    @eww:
    Whatever she is, she isn’t ugly. Far from it.

  • Shannon

    @Rachel(): She doesn’t own jewelmint. Some company does, & it owns mk & ashley olson’s new “stylemint” & basically anything with “mint” in it. She also doesn’t really design any of it. Some tattooed girl does.

  • Shannon

    @Sofie: You’re right, she’s a very pretty girl. Sadly, that’s all she is and pretty girls are a dime a dozen in hollywood, especially when you’re almost 30 & competing with younger, hotter girls. She should hone her craft instead of working the paps & shelling out cheap jewelry. Maybe then people will take her seriously.

  • Fee

    @Shannon:
    That’s BS. 30 is nothing these days, not even in Hollywood.

  • Camille

    @Fee:

    No it isn’t, especially when all the plumb roles are going to those in the 20-25 age range for those kinds of things (ScarJo, Portman, Emma Stone, Jennifer Lawrence) , or the 35+ range (Cate Blanchett, Kate Winslet, etc). Some people in KB’s range are getting prime parts, but they are much, much better than she is and not just looks wise. When you’re almost 30 and mediocre there isnt’ much for you. Why hire someone almost 30 who isn’t that good when you can hire someone 23 who is award nominated?

  • kate to star in new film

    I still cannot believe how shallow, disgusting and selfish KB, Cher and now we find out that JJ is just as bad. Do they really only care about themselves and how much publicity good or bad they can get and do not care that they share that fact with us.

    @Kingstar-I haven’t stopped laughing at your post–what a classic and so true

    As we all know there are so many worthwhile and needy charities, that are in desparte need of help, but the 3 of them are so ignorant that they do not care. I know JJ’s charity is a great one, but why do they have the nerve to tell us to buy those crapmint earrings to have a donation made, why not just set up a situation where you can donate some money and it will go directly to the charity.

    As Merrick has stated we have never been informed of what amount of money has actually been donated to the charities for Japan, or the Rachel Bilson earrings, so why purchase a poorly selling item and find out nothing about the donation.

    Also Merrick is correct, I watched that ridiculous video more than once because I was in shock and she does say “devastating.” Who lets her speak, and why? Will you 2 fans believe us now that it was daddy’s influence, that got her accepted into Princeton, the girl is a moron, at least they limited the um, um’s, when she was talking.

    Look who wants to help women in worn torn countries, a self
    absorbed famewhore, who has no identity of her own and is a spoiled brat, who would rather pose topless than help foster children.

    The three of them have nothing to offer, whoever came up with this idea made a huge mistake.

    @Sofie-look at her face, I mean really look at her face, she has destroyed herself with chemical peels, lip injections, boxtex, aneroxia and worst of all drugs and alcohol.

    @Camille-You are right, why hire her, she has no talent and her only money maker was 10 years ago. The actresses in her age group are talented and work on their craft and improve themselfs, she just wants to get her picture taken and posts written about her good or bad.

    Her reputation as a pariah, who kills whatever/whoever she is involved with has been with her for a long time and it isn’t going to change.

    Please AS just finish your obligations with SD and her and get on with your life. You are too talented for this nonesense.

    One last thing AS was voted one of the most enviromentally active actors this year–he was in such company as Leo DiCaprio, Toby Maguire, and Julia Roberts just to name a few. I think that is pretty great.

  • http://viking65 mforman

    Sorry to post again so soon, but I forgot to mention, if you watch the video it looks like she is counting off the “good deeds”, like finding women sancturies and helping with education on her fingers. It is like they told her, “you need to say these five things and then you will look smart, important and caring.”

    I have disliked her since Blue Crush days, but to see that she has now gotten another part is just too much. She used him over and over and because of his obligations that his disgusting manager arranged and being the loyal person that we have all heard he is, he let this happen.

    Like she has been quoted as saying: “Nothing or no one will get in her way of success, she will do whatever she has to to succeed.” Well boy oh boy has she proven that to all of us.

    Thank goodness it looks like he is putting an end to this. I will say it again the man is way too talented to not be in some great movies. Please just watch PUSS and you will see what I mean.

  • to be fair

    I don’t see how alex has put an end to anything in the relationship, to be fair kate is working and out of LA and alex is working on TB, once kate has finished with big sur she will run straight to LA be papped out and about with boyfriend alex over the weekend, do some photo shoots/modelling for shit-mint get a few red carpet moments in, and then kate will be onto her next projects
    there is no way kate is going to let alex go! they are still together doesn’t matter how much work she has got

    I think these are her film projects if she has signed
    serpent girl, mid night sun, black rock, got to hand it to the little blond fame-ho she is working once again!

  • http://justjared Mjforever

    Too pathetic for words .

  • Di

    @mforman: Do you remember where she was quoted? The only ones I’ve heard are about Great Danes (they so just ARE!) and hot tea.

  • it’smeagainmargaret

    @to be fair: Yes, she’s getting all the job offers and Alex has absolutely NOTHING lined up for TB hiatus. Didn’t get Thor, didn’t get Kon Tiki, not even considered for Snow White and The Huntsman. It’s bad and it seems to be getting worse! He said in an interview (sorry don’t remember but it was fairly recent) that the movie roles he’s been offered so far are mainly vampires, I don’t want to see him typecast but that seems to be what’s happening to him. As much as I love TB I wouldn’t mind seeing it cancelled if it means he will be considered for more normal parts. I’d like to see him in a romcom or back as a soldier like in GK, pretty much anything that isn’t vampyric in nature. I don’t know that you can blame kb for the fall in his career but things were going great for him before they hooked up.

  • Camille

    @to be fair:

    As far as I’ve heard, Big Sur was done filming last weekend. Possibly reshoots though, you never know.

  • ladybug

    @MERRICK: (sigh) For a blue-blood almost-Princeton Tiger, she sure has problems speaking coherently, doesn’t she?
    I like that garbage barge idea. Or, she can suddenly decide to personally get involved in cleaning up the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.

    @it’smeagainmargaret. I too wonder if TB isn’t actually hurting his career now.

  • alex to star in new film

    Alexander Skarsgard has joined Julianne Moore and Steve Coogan in What Maisie Knew I am soooooo excited YAY for alex hopefully alex will meet a nice women on set

  • Camille

    @alex to star in new film:

    Awesome news? And who was it that was saying Alex wasn’t going to get any roles? I’d say working with Julianne Moore is pretty damn good. She’s pretty highly regarded. Much better than some 10 minute role in some D list movie KB got.

  • ladybug

    @Camille: That’s a real short filming schedule, not even a month?
    And yes, it’s great that Alex gets work with Julianne Moore.

  • Camille

    @ladybug:

    Maybe it’s only shooting in NYC for that month? In the description I saw on another site it said the movie also ends in France or something like that.
