Penelope Cruz Mistaken For Salma Hayek in Oscars Instagram Photo

The official Academy Awards Instagram account made a huge oopsie the other night. Whoever was in charge of posting photos from the 2014 Oscars was not doing their job very well because Penelope Cruz was mistaken for Salma Hayek.

Cruz presented an award with Robert De Niro and the Academy posted a photo of the two of them backstage, with the caption “Hayek and De Niro prepping backstage.”

The huge blunder was immediately noticed by fans who left comments slamming the account for confusing the Spanish actress with her equally famous friend and former co-star, Salma Hayek.

As a result, as soon as the person in charge of the account realized the mistake, the photo was taken down. Not fast enough though so now everyone is aware of the oopsie.

To make matters worst, Salma did not even attend the Oscars this year. You’d think that who ever handles the official Academy Instagram would know that. Also, that they’d know who is who.

Samuel L. Jackson would have some things to say about this.

Kate Hudson in Atelier Versace: Best Dressed at 2014 Oscars?

Kate Hudson brought the drama on the Oscars red carpet last night. Kate wore a gorgeous Atelier Versace dress that looked amazing from absolutely every angle.

From the front, this dress is giving me Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom Ford vibes because it looks like it has a cape. Only this Versace gown does not have a cape.

See how equally dramatic the gown looks from the back.

Kate’s hair and makeup were flawless too. I’m so close to declaring her the best dressed at the 2014 Oscars.

You know who else looked amazing at the Oscars? Goldie Hawn, Kate Hudson’s mom. Goldie is 68. She looks fantastic.

Penelope Cruz In Allure: Breastfeeding “is addictive”



Penelope Cruz gives gorgeous face on the cover of Allure magazine’s January 2014 issue. She is so beautiful, you could stare at her cover for minutes and still be amazed at how flawless she is. It’s not even an issue that it’s too much face.

Aside from her iconic beauty, people are talking about Penelope‘s plans to breastfeed her daughter Luna for a whole 13 months just like she did with her first-born, son Leonardo.

Here’s what the actress told the magazine!

On diet and breastfeeding: “As you can see, we’re not going to talk about diet for this story.” Not the deprivation type, anyway. Cruz, mother of six-month-old Luna, says, “I’m supposed to get extra calories because breast-feeding you burn, like, an extra 500 a day. I was breast-feeding my son 13 months, and I plan to do the same with my daughter. [Nursing] is addictive. It’s hard when the day comes when you have to stop.

On family: “I always knew I wanted a family because of the way I grew up. Family has always been the most important thing.” Motherhood is also the central theme of her new movie Twice Born, a story of an infertile woman’s struggle to have a child, set against the brutality of the Bosnian war. “She talks in a way that is really shocking many times,” says Cruz, “not very politically correct. Because she had that dream of becoming a mother and [it’s] not happening, she says she feels defective.

She could be a hairstylist: “My parents owned a hair salon, so I learned a few tricks there. I can cut people’s hair—if they let me.

On her childhood: “In my house every Sunday, everybody was cleaning the house. There was always music, and everybody was dancing, sometimes naked, around the house. Not hippie, but very free.

On doing the ad for L’Agent Provocateur:I did the whole casting myself. Some of the girls are 20. Some of the girls are 50. I made sure that we had a couple of plus-size models. It’s like a celebration of all types of beauty.”
