How does Cate Blanchett celebrate winning an Oscar? With a tattoo, of course! The best actress winner was joined by her husband, Andrew Upton; fellow nominee Amy Adams; and Amy's fiancé, Darren Le Gallo, at the Shamrock Social Club tattoo parlor in West Hollywood on Monday to get inked. It isn't clear what Cate got, but she was spotted leaving the shop with a black bandage on her wrist, and Darren was seen leaving with a white bandage on his arm. Cate is apparently close with the tattoo shop, which tweeted out congratulations to "friend" Cate after her win on Sunday night. Both Cate and Amy have publicly spoken out about the tragic passing of Philip Seymour Hoffman so perhaps the new ink is a tribute to their friend or maybe Oscar night created a tattoo-worthy bond between the foursome?
Earlier in the day, Cate taped an interview for The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where she talked about being upset about missing out on the now infamous Oscars pizza party. "I got up to go to the bar to get something to eat, and then you were handing out pizza, and they wouldn't let me back in," she said.
If you want to be a millionaire someday, it might help to know what real millionaires are like. There are a lot of misconceptions out there. Here are five of the most common myths about millionaires.
1. They spend a lot. We have this idea of millionaires throwing away money all the time on expensive stuff. But a lot of them are really frugal. In a lot of cases, people get to be millionaires later in life just because they saved a lot all along.
2. They're better than us. It's not that millionaires are smarter, more talented, or better at business. More often they're just good at setting goals and working toward them. They have a gift for moving forward in situations where other people give up.
3. They're luckier. Nope, they just work hard. Every small business owner who became a millionaire has some story about hearing "No" from a hundred people before hearing the first "Yes."
4. They're born into money. In fact, a recent survey found that 86% of millionaires are self-made. Most of them say they didn't even have rich contacts when they first started out.
5. They're fearless. Again, most millionaires are just like us. They're afraid of rejection . . . they just overcome it. Usually they're just realistic about their chances.
Five Bad Foods That Are Actually Good For You and one of them is coffee!
Scientists get a lot of stuff wrong. They give a bunch of foods a bad rep, and then change their mind and say they're actually GOOD for you. You may have heard some of these before, but here are the five latest bad foods to get back on the healthy list:
1. Coffee. Too much caffeine was supposedly bad. But studies show that coffee improves memory, reaction time, mood, and general cognitive function. It also boosts your metabolism, and can protect you from Type II diabetes and Alzheimer's.
2. Whole milk. Scientists agreed that drinking it made you fat. Well, now they're saying that kids who drink SKIM milk are likely to be the chubby ones. Because skim milk somehow makes you crave junk food.
3. Salt. It used to be bad to salt your food. But the real problem isn't necessarily salt . . . it's processed foods with a high sodium content.
4. Chocolate. Candy bars are one thing, because they're filled with chemicals and preservatives. But pure chocolate is healthy for you. It helps with heart disease and lowers blood pressure.
5. Popcorn. Keep in mind that when movie popcorn is covered with butter, it can have 1,200 calories. But the kind that you air-pop at home is loaded with more anti-oxidants than fruits and vegetables. It's also a great source of fiber.
The best part of the Oscars - Selfies, Pizza & Mom!
Ellen took a star-studded selfie with Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Jared Leto, Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Channing Tatum, Kevin Spacey, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Lupita Nyong'o that almost immediately broke the record for most re-Tweets.
By the time the Oscars ended, it had been re-Tweeted over TWO MILLION TIMES, and it actually crashed Twitter for a while.
Lol I retweeted on the Mix 106.5 Facebook page!
I also feel bad for Liza Minelli (and her nipples) were in the back of the selfie and she was too short to make the shot.
And Ellen handed out pizza to the stars, and later went around with PHARRELL'S giant hat to collect donations for it. Yes, Pharrell did wear the hat when he performed"Happy" earlier in the show.
JARED LETO's acceptance speech for Best Supporting Actor was basically a love letter to his mom. But he also spoke out for the people of Venezuela and the Ukraine, along with the millions who've died of AIDS.
