This probably isn't exactly what Oprah Winfrey meant with her famous "You get a car! And you get a car!" routine. The media mogul's SUV ran over a woman's foot outside a Miami steakhouse. "It has always been on my bucket list to meet Oprah, but I could never have imagined it would be because her driver ran over my toe," the victim, Lori Geller Bender, tells Page Six. See, that's the thing about the Secret. You have to be specific or else who knows what will happen.
"We were crossing the street to arrive at the restaurant, and there were a lot of cameras. I could see a big crowd of security guards, and as soon as Oprah got into the car it pulled out from the curb and a wheel went over my foot. I was wearing heels, my toe was trapped under the wheel and I fell to the ground, hitting my coccyx and my head," Geller Bender says. "The driver reversed off my foot and Oprah jumped out. She couldn't have been nicer and more gracious. She looked really shocked and asked me if I was OK, and took a good look at my foot. I wasn't hurt, and I told her I was fine. Oprah said, 'Well, that's worth a picture,' and she put her arm around me and we took some photos." OK, two things: As impressive as her resume is, Winfrey is not an orthopedist, so I'd take her assessment of your injuries with a grain of salt. And two: I bet a lawyer would have a different opinion of what "that's worth," but what do I know?
Leonardo DiCaprio knows how to party, and apparently that means wearing a chimpanzee mask. A man believed to be DiCaprio was seen alongside Australian pal James Packer ushering a trio of women clad in skimpy Halloween costumes into a waiting SUV outside of Nobu in Malibu over the weekend. For those playing along at home, by the way, while the men in the group were wearing casual clothing plus masks — the bare minimum of effort when it comes to costumes — the women were dressed up as Sexy Wonder Woman, Sexy Greek Goddess and Sexy Playboy Bunny, which is more than a little redundant, really. Look, I know it's Halloween and all — a week-long celebration in L.A., by the way — but I don't see why celebrities like DiCaprio don't just do this all the time. Everyone knows the old baseball cap and sunglasses routine doesn't fool anyone.
Kristen Stewart's changed, man. At least that's the line some of her anonymous "friends" are feeding Radar Online. The former "Twilight" star, who recently announced she's "taking time off" from acting, has been putting on airs, apparently. "Kristen doesn't even resemble the person that we knew from before she was with Rob [Pattinson]. She used to be a very low-key, cool girl," a source gripes. "But her inflated ego has convinced her that even her childhood friends only want to hang out with he because of 'who she is.' It's really sad, and her friends are literally dropping like flies." Wait, literally? That sounds terrifying.
There's ain't nothing like a Dame. None other than Dame Helen Mirren has been named as the new face of L'Oreal and will be repping the cosmetics giant alongside Blake Lively, singer Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and model Lara Stone. Mirren, though, is more than happy to downplay her own appeal. "I am not gorgeous and I never was, but I was always OK looking and I'm keen to stay that way," she says. "I have always loved the L'Oreal Paris brand, and I hope I can inspire other women towards greater confidence by making the most of their natural good looks. We are all worth it." Yeah, but if Mirren is just OK looking, what hope do the rest of us have?
As they are wont to do, OK Go uploaded their newest "how the heck did they do that?!!" music video, "I Won't Let You Down," without warning yesterday. It's kinda formulaic though. Want to know the formula? Drone camera + Esther Williams-style choreography + approximately 2,000 Honda UNI-CUBs + umbrellas that look like dots in an LED screen when seen from above when the drone ascends into the clouds = Another video that's nothing short of a masterpiece masterpiece from OK Go. So yeah, totally formulaic. But then it's OK to be formulaic when your formula is pure awesomeness. Oh, and as always, the song is pretty catchy too.
