Blake Lively, who is happily dating “Green Lantern” co-star Ryan Reynolds, looks for two things in a man: a sense of style and a passion for food. “It’s definitely attractive when a man can dress well,” Lively tells Marie Claire magazine. “What I love most is when someone, guy or girl, is effortless and has this old-timey sort of feel [that] you could take a snapshot of them and they could exist in any time period.” And as for the culinary side? “To be around me, you must love food or I’m the most obnoxious person you’ve ever met,” she says. “I’m in a big cooking phase. That’s all I’ll talk about.”
Jennifer Aniston has found the secret to staying young: Vaseline. The former “Friends” star reportedly dabs a quarter-teaspoon of the substance under her eyes each night, according to Now magazine. “Jen’s very disciplined when it comes to staying young,” a source says, adding that Aniston “doesn’t like the thought ?of surgery because she doesn’t want to look stretched, so she ?has a 30-minute nightly beauty ritual.” That ritual involves a cleanser, a lotion and a 10-minute facial massage, all topped off by the dabs of Vaseline. And she reportedly has a cost-effective morning ritual as well: Aniston “fills her sink with water and ice cubes and dips her face in it to shrink the pores and reduce puffiness around her eyes,” the source says.
Tommy Chong, one half of comedy duo Cheech & Chong and a longtime marijuana enthusiast, has revealed that he was diagnosed with prostate cancer — and he’s using cannabis to treat the condition, according to CNN. Chong says he started seeing symptoms eight years ago “while incarcerated for selling drug paraphernalia,” he says. Chong is using hemp oil to fight his “slow state one” cancer, “so [legalizing marijuana] means a lot more to me than just being able to smoke a joint without being arrested,” he says.
