Johnny Knoxville's 'Bad Grandpa' could win an Oscar

UPDATE (Jan. 16, 2014): Steve Prouty nominated for an Academy Award in Best Makeup and Hairstyling

ORIGINAL POST: Most Hollywood makeup artists breathe easier knowing that flaws in their work won’t be obvious to the audience thanks to elements like camera lenses and lighting — plus, any manner of sins can be corrected in post. The Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa crew didn’t have that luxury. Instead, they had to turn 40-something Johnny Knoxville into an 86-year-old man by creating a makeup that looked believable in real life to people who would be just inches away from the actor’s face.

Faced with a nearly 10-month long shoot, three-plus hour daily makeup sessions, and the ever-present possibility that Knoxville would do something like throw himself through a glass window, lead makeup special effects artist Steve Prouty knew he had his work cut out for him. And boy, did his work pay off.

Not only did Knoxville make a convincing octogenarian, now Prouty and his team are in contention for an Oscar.


Martha Stewart's $2,000 beauty habit

The cornerstone of her domestic empire is perfection, so it’s hardly a surprise that Martha Stewart’s beauty secret is a highly regimented process involving face masks, serums, toning lotions, moisturizers, eye creams, and cleansing oils.

In yesterday’s New York Times, Stewart, a former model, shared a detailed breakdown of her daily skin care and wellness routine. What does it cost to keep Martha looking good?

After tallying the retail prices of her must-have skin care, makeup, hair care products, and signature fragrance, fashion blog Racked.com valued the contents — everything from a Mario Badescu facial spray ($7) to Cle de Peau’s Le Serum moisturizing serum ($325) — of Stewart’s bathroom vanity at $2,103.

And that doesn’t include what she shells out for her go-to facialist, manicurist, masseuse, hairstylist, hair colorist, and eyebrow specialist, which Racked estimates cost upwards of $700 a month. READ FULL STORY

Rihanna's makeup collection is selling out fast


Rihanna’s RiRi Hearts MAC holiday makeup collection arrived less than a week ago, but more than a few of the items have already sold out.

Among the new products that flew off shelves are nail polish in Rihanna’s signature red RiRi Woo, both liquid liner colors — “Pisces Persuasion” and “Cockiness” — and all three holiday lipstick shades — “Pleasure Bomb,” “Bad Girl RiRi,” and “RiRi Woo.” Still available: the “Phresh Out” and “2X Dare” eye shadow palettes, “Love, Rihanna” bronzing powder, and a pink quilted makeup bag.

The RiRi Hearts MAC holiday collection is Rihanna’s final makeup line for the beauty brand, but she’ll continue on as the face of MAC’s Viva Glam campaign.

'Face Off' finale interviews: 'I feel like I tripped at the finish line'

The newbies came prepared to conquer, but it was the vets who ultimately battled it out in Tuesday night’s season finale of Face Off. Tate Steinsiek (season one), Laura Tyler (season three), and Roy Wooley (season three) were the last three standing… each one seeking redemption.

Host McKenzie Westmore introduced the finalists to dancers from the Los Angeles Ballet who proceeded to perform a routine from Swan Lake. Naturally, their performance was the inspiration for this season’s final challenge. The trio learned they were to create a swan princess and evil sorcerer… and that their make-up better be sweat proof. From there, each artist was paired with a different era–from the Industrial Revolution, Ming Dynasty, or Italian Renaissance–and with a team of familiar assistants.

Because the project was a huge undertaking, the final three were reunited with this season’s previous contestants. The group broke apart and got straight to work.

Wooley acknowledged he felt outside of his comfort zone, but Frank Ippolito and Scott Ramp helped him along. Tyler had a few concepts–and with Eddie Holecko and Miranda Jory on her team–the trio moved quickly forward. Meanwhile, Steinsiek worked with Alana Schiro and Lyma Millot on his avian sculpture, but it didn’t initially turn out quite as he’d hoped and the trio lost some time backtracking. Each team was forced to troubleshoot one minor crisis after another until judgement day finally arrived.

Only one last live ballet performance stood between the artists and the series outcome. The Los Angeles Ballet routine went swimmingly, but, of course, it was the judges who would have the final word. After carefully reviewing each contestant’s work, the judges made their–admittedly very difficult–decision.

Ultimately, Tyler was declared winner for her Italian renaissance-inspired swan-sorcerer while Steinsiek and Wooley–ever the good sports–hugged and congratulated her.

EW spoke with Tyler, Steinsiek, and Wooley about the show’s big finish and what they’ve been working on since filming wrapped. Read more after the jump.


'Face Off' exit Q&A: 'I need to believe in myself more'

The end is near on this season of Face Off. With only four contestants remaining and the finale just around the corner, the artists were clearly feeling the pressure this week.

After meeting host McKenzie Westmore at the Burbank Airport, the group was introduced to Animal Planet’s Dave Salmoni, who brought along a feathered friend. The artists learned that the Spotlight Challenge was to create a human-bird hybrid. Roy Wooley selected a blue-throated macaw as his inspiration, while Laura Tyler chose an umbrella cockatoo, Tate Steinsiek picked an Egyptian vulture, and Miranda Jory went with a silver-cheeked hornbill.

Wooley’s ambitious design almost got the best of him. Midway through the process, his mold fell to the floor and shattered, but he refused to let the setback slow him down. Meanwhile, Jory battled her time management issues, finding herself going down the same slippery slope because she spent too much time focusing on the minutiae of her design. When judgement day arrived, Steinsiek was declared winner for presenting one of his best paint jobs this season. Though the judges were disappointed in Wooley’s choices, it was ultimately Jory who was sent home for playing it too safe.

EW spoke with Jory about her winning streak, how she feels about fans labeling her as insecure, what she would have done differently if she had a do-over, and what she’s been working on since filming wrapped.

'Face Off' exit Q&A: 'I honestly don't regret the decision I made'

This week’s Face Off started off on a solemn note when the remaining contestants admitted they missed last week’s eliminated contestant Eddie Holecko. Newbie Laney Parkhurst — who had found herself in the bottom two with Holecko — seemed especially melancholy. “I’m not having fun anymore,” she confessed to the camera. “Maybe this challenge will wake me up.”

Parkhurst’s wake up call came when the group was whisked off to a state park, where host McKenzie Westmore challenged them to create elf warriors based on the runes they saw. Laura Tyler seemed particularly excited, thinking she might even have an advantage since she had extensive knowledge of elves, while a reticent Parkhurst chose “immortality” as her concept. The group got to work, but things came screeching to a halt when Tyler discovered a letter from Parkhurst announcing that she had  decided to quit the show. After a brief debate over how this might affect the week’s challenge, the contestants returned to the lab to focus on the task at hand.

Tyler’s confidence paid off  when she found herself at the top of the pack alongside Tate Steinsiek, who was declared the challenge winner. For the first time this season, Miranda Jory had one of the judges’ least favorite creations, and found herself on the chopping block with Wooley. But this turned out to be a good week to be in the bottom two…. In light of Parkhurst’s premature departure, Jory and Wooley were both spared from elimination.

EW spoke with Parkhurst about why she decided to drop out of the competition, whether she regrets her decision, and what she’s been working on since filming wrapped.

Johnny Depp dyes his hair blonde

Johnny Depp, is that you?

Making a surprise appearance at the London Film Festival — where he presented Charlie and the Chocolate Factory co-star Christopher Lee with an award — on Saturday night, the actor turned heads with his shocking new hair color.

A clean-shaven Depp, whose trademark look usually includes some combination of a fedora, dark glasses, and layers of boho-inspired jewelry and scarves, showed up to the event wearing a simple black tuxedo and black patent Doc Marten boots, offering no explanation for his new ‘do. The 50-year-old is currently at work playing the wolf from Little Red Riding Hood in the fantasy flick Into the Woods, but his brassy, bleached mane looks less canid and more Simba from The Lion King.

See what Johnny Depp looks like as a blonde after the jump.  READ FULL STORY
