Kelly Clarkson Dishes on Her Sex Life with Brandon Blackstock

Kelly Clarkson is on the cover of Redbook magazine’s December/January issue, on newsstands November 21.

Here’s what the 35-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

On being a positive body image hero to so many women—and how fans might react if she lost weight: “That’s already happened to me. They shame you for it. Same thing happened with Miranda Lambert—I had dinner with her and we were talking about that. She was like, “Should I gain? Should I lose?” But no one actually cares about your health. They just care about aesthetics. It’s when I’m fat that I’m happy. People think, Oh, there’s something wrong with her. She’s putting on weight. I’m like, “Oh, no! I’m sorry, but that represents happiness in my emotional world.” For me, when I’m skinny is usually when I’m not doing well. If you gauge your life on what other people think, you’re going to be in a constant state of panic trying to please everyone. People should just concentrate on their own lives and their own health and their own happiness, and whatever that looks like for you, be happy with it.”

On how being a mom changed her: “Literally, having children has brought fear to my life. That sounds horrible, I know, but before kids I was fearless. Now I go to bed and I have nightmares of someone just grabbing my little girl and running. It’s always about me not being able to protect my kids somehow. I’m a mama bear. Just recently our nanny told me that an older kid was mean to my daughter at the park and that she just crumbled. I’m glad I wasn’t there, because I wouldn’t have handled that well. I totally went off on that 6-year-old in my head!”

On keeping things spontaneous with her husband, Brandon: “Any time we’re in a discussion about sex with a bunch of couples, Brandon and I stay pretty quiet. To keep it family appropriate, let’s say we’re just a lot more active than other couples. I’m a person who loves change. He loves spontaneity. Having a set time or place [to have sex] would be boring to us. When I met Brandon, I wasn’t looking for a friend. I have a lot of great friends! I was looking for a lover. I had never found someone I was truly passionate about, who I wanted to stay in bed with all day. The fact that I did, well…I was going to latch on and take advantage of that.”

Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone, & A-List Stars Discuss Being a Woman in Hollywood

Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone, Mary J. Blige, Jessica Chastain, Allison Janney and Saoirse Ronan are all featured on the cover of THR‘s annual dramatic actress roundtable issue.

Here’s what the stars had to share with the mag:

Jennifer, on being “punished” for standing up for herself on set: “Sometimes — I’ve had this happen: I finally made the decision to stand up for myself, and then I went to go to the bathroom at work and one of the producers stopped me and was like, ‘You know, we can hear you on the microphone, you’ve been really unruly.’ Which was not true, but basically my job was threatened because the director said something fucked up to me and I said, ‘That’s sick, you can’t talk to me like that,’ and then I was punished, and I got afraid that I wasn’t going to be hired again … I was called difficult and a nightmare.”

Jessica, on why things in Hollywood need to change: “You know what [Sorkin] said to me the other day when we were talking about what’s going on in the industry? He said that he was talking to his daughter, Roxy, and saying, ‘Listen, when you go into the workforce, if a guy grabs you or does something with you, you can scream, you can fight back.’ And she turned to him and said, ‘Dad, why are you teaching me to defend myself and not teaching those guys not to be creeps?’ The onus isn’t on women. Society has a way of blaming victims: You didn’t come out soon enough or you’re not asking for enough money. But the onus is on others not to abuse their power.”

Allison, on the pressure to look perfect: “For I, Tonya, I got to do this old-age makeup, and I was like three hours in this makeup, and then I saw myself and I was like, ‘Oh, my God, this is fantastic. I don’t have to worry about my jowls.’ It was so freeing to go and work on a part that I didn’t care what I looked like. Even seeing it, I was like, ‘Oh, God, I can watch myself because I look so awful.’”

Nicki Minaj Is Ready to Break the Internet with 'Paper' Mag Cover

Three versions of Nicki Minaj appear on the cover of Paper magazine‘s “Break the Internet” issue.

The 34-year-old rapper was photographed by Ellen von Unwerth and styled by herself for a shoot in Miami, which will be featured in a 16-page editorial.

“To Break The Internet you have to have a big idea and an even bigger superstar, and Nicki Minaj is certainly that superstar. The best part is we didn’t get one Nicki, we got three,” said Drew Elliott, Paper’s creative director. “Paper always looks for ways to create culture instead of just report on it. Our media company sits at the center of where internet culture becomes pop culture, and Nicki is certainly a queen of disruption. This shoot was ambitious, imagine having to do three shoots to get one image, and Nicki lead the charge. Ellen von Unwerth brought her signature playful spirit to this shoot. The internet is the ultimate newsstand.”

Julia Roberts Reveals How She Came to Star in 'Wonder'

Julia Roberts poses with Wonder director Stephen Chbosky and writer R.J. Palacio in the new issue of Good Housekeeping, on newsstands now.

Here’s what the 50-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On how we can be better as humans: “I think we need to stop criticizing. Honestly, it’s become a sport — at lunch, online, wherever. ‘I can’t believe the way she’s wearing her hair,’ or ‘He looks so…’ It’s all so petty, and we’re grown-up people. There have to be more interesting things to note about one another…and I’m talking to myself here too, because I find the sarcasm and the criticism and stuff like that very humorous, but there’s a time when you go, ‘Well, why don’t I say all the true and kind things’”

On how she found Wonder: “It was getting tricky in my house to have a nighttime chapter book everyone would like, so I bought Wonder, and I could not put it down. I read it to the three kids [Hazel and Phinneaus, now 13, and Henry, now 10], and they were all as knocked out as I had been. I remember calling my agent after I read the book and saying, ‘I’ll play the mom!’”

James Franco Reveals Why He Decided to Co-Host Oscars in 2011 with Anne Hathaway

James Franco is on the cover of Variety‘s latest issue.

Here’s what the 39-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On turning 40: “I realize, ‘James, you’re 40.’ I have achieved all the things that I dreamed when I was younger. And realizing, ‘Oh, those things are not going to fill the hole.’ Do fewer things, and do things that you really love, and give them the attention they deserve.”

On why he quit Instagram: “It’s very liberating. I just got rid of it. When I first got on, it just felt silly. I treated it like it was a joke. You get in that weird seductive space where it feels private, but it’s also public. And you get hooked on the reaction… It’s sort of the way I see people like the Kardashians. They are staking out new ground, and what these spaces are. They are making a lot of money off of it. What will happen if I do that? There was some photo I did. I wasn’t naked. I’m sure Rihanna has posted a bunch more risqué photos. It was just the attitude of the photo. It was sweaty. My hand was in my boxers. It just looked gross.”

On hosting the Oscars with Anne Hathaway: “At the time I justified it to myself. ‘This will be an experiment. This will be weird.’ Part of me was so uncomfortable with the attention of being nominated, but also fear of losing, because everybody was talking about Colin Firth. I mean, I shouldn’t have been doing it. Honestly, I think the biggest criticism of me, it seemed like I was high or low energy. In my head, I was trying to be the straight man. I guess I just went too far or came across as the dead man.”

Jessica Chastain Reveals Why She Won't Go Out for 'Traditional Female Roles'

Jessica Chastain is on the cover of Town & Country magazine’s December/January issue, on newsstands November 21.

Here’s what the Molly’s Game star had to share with the mag:

On why she does not choose traditional female acting roles: “I am not one to go for traditional female roles, because I don’t think traditionally female characters are very interesting, and I don’t think they represent real life. I’m working hard to break free of stereotypes that the film industry has created and nurtured around women.”

On equal pay and what she will no longer accept: “If I’m in a situation where I have equal experience to the actor and my role is just as significant, there is no reason why I should be paid less. It’s not really part of my world anymore, because I just won’t accept it.”

On her mission to inspire young girls: “I believe that the energy you put into the world is what you get back, so I’m trying to put something positive out there, something to inspire girls and go into science, to run for office, to try to join the space program.”

Jason Momoa Talks Lovingly About His Children: 'My Kids Are the Greatest Piece of Art'

Jason Momoa is looking hot hot hot on the cover of Men’s Health‘s December 2017 issue, on newsstands on November 21.

Here’s what the 38-year-old Justice League star had to share with the mag:

On life before he was a parent: “I really can’t tell you what the hell I was doing before I had kids….Just wasting time. I think I was pretty reckless and definitely a bit out of control. Now I’m more focused. I probably love myself more and take care of myself more because I want to stick around.”

On how he wants to be remembered: “…I want to be remembered as, I hope, an amazing husband and a great father. My kids are the greatest piece of art. If I can pump them full of amazing stuff and surround them with beautiful art and music, then I’m going to live out my life watching them. They’re already way smarter and just way better than me. God, I love it. It’s beautiful. I want it to be the greatest thing I ever do: make good humans.”

On his musical instrument collection: “I told my wife: one woman, lots of toys!”
