Kate Winslet has already done her part to make the world a better place (hello, she gave us Titanic) but thankfully, she’s not stopping there. The esteemed actress is now using her celebrity to take a stand against Photoshop. She revealed at Monday’s Elle Women in Hollywood event that she negotiated a no retouching clause into her contract with Lancôme.

“I do think we have a responsibility to the younger generation of women,” she explained. “I think they do look to magazines, I think they do look to women who have been successful in their chosen careers and they want people to look up to, and I would always want to be telling the truth about who I am to that generation because they’ve got to have strong leaders. We’re all responsible for raising strong young women, so these are things that are important to me.”

Kate joins celebrities like Zendaya who recently spoke out against airbrushing when a magazine excessively Photoshopped her picture. If more celebs take a powerful stance against blatant retouching like these two, perhaps we can eradicate it once and for all…though we probably all still do it secretly on Instagram

Fan Questions Tear Down International Model David Witko On ‘Ash Williams Live’

With The Bachelorette coming to an end tonight, it seems only natural that the show’s infamous “international model” would jump on his final five minutes of fame. 

David Witko, who is hated by some thanks to his judgements of Sam Frost, agreed to a segment on Ash Williams Live, where he was asked by 15-year-old girl and 59-year-old man why he is, well, the way he is. (more…)

Maxim Australia has released its highly anticipated Hot 100 for 2015, with Delta Goodrem ranking first on the list of “gifted and gorgeous Australian women who have impressed — and undressed — this year”.

30-year-old Delta’s duties include the covetable cover shot for the November 2015 issue, posing topless in a pool of water in one of her most revealing shoots yet. While it kind of reminds us of Sam Frost’s cover shoot this February, it’s a step up from Iggy Azalea’s glittery 2014 Maxim HOT 100 cover last year.

Both Sam and Iggy join Delta in the list’s top 10, along with models Jennifer Hawkins and Miranda Kerr, presenter Samantha Armytage and more. Check out the entire top 10 below, and pick up a copy of the mag from today for the complete 100. (more…)

Richie Strahan Goes Bananas for Former Miss Universe Renae Ayris

Our hearts broke in two when Sam Frost sent Richie Strahan home on last night’s The Bachelorette, but you’ll be pleased to know he’s still single and ready for that four-letter word. We do kind of wonder, though, other than Sam, who is Richie’s type?

Speaking to Popsugar Australia, Richie hesitantly admitted that he’s got a bit of a keen eye for local model Renae Ayris, who hasn’t been linked to anyone romantically since she broke up with AFL player Tom Bellchambers last December.

“You know that Renae girl? Renae Ayris? She’s like a Miss Universe Australia…,” Richie replied when asked if he has a “celebrity crush”.

Cute that he considers her a celebrity when he’s probably more recognisable than her right now, but he implied that the infatuation started well before his television experience.

“Oh my God. Ages and ages ago, I followed her on Instagram and every now and then I’d just see a picture of her head and I’d be like, ‘My God! It’s incredible!’ and then I’d have to put my phone away. She’s out of control!” he laughed. 

Sigh. That’s kind of the way we feel when you come up in our news feeds, Richie.
