Vogue Puts Wizened Crone Marion Cotillard On The Cover Of Their "Aging" Issue

By Joanna Robinson | Pajiba Love | July 16, 2012 | Comments ()


Hello poppets!! It's lunch time here on the Left Coast and tea time over there on the Far Coast so belly up to the bar for a smorgasbord of links. I don't know how many of our readers are young'uns with sh*tty summer jobs, but if you are (or remember those days) here's a fun list of soul crushing summer jobs from pop culture. Point of order, store clerk at Empire Records is anything but soul crushing. (VML)

Speaking of summertime things, here are some fun and nostalgic images of famous faces caught in photo booths. I think it's possible Audrey Hepburn didn't have a single bad angle. (FlavorWire)

Speaking of photogenic, the lovely Marion Cotillard covers Vogue. As I said in the headline this is their "aging" issue, so I cringe a little that a 36 year old is the best they can do. But, I suppose, it could be worse. More sumptuous photos of The Dark Knight Rises actress here. (Celebitchy)

I couldn't get over the headline of this article that claims women have a higher IQ than men. "Soft, Pretty Things Have Gooder Smartness." I'm putting that on my business cards. (The Awl)

For those of you still reeling from the fantastic "Breaking Bad" premiere last night, try envisioning the series with John Cusack or Matthew Broderick instead of Bryan Cranston as Walter White. According to this article, they were the first picks. Is that old news? (THR)

The return of those meth-cooking bad guys are making me miss then degenerates from SAMCRO. Dustin reports this morning that Joel McHale is bringing some of his smarmy charm to "Sons Of Anarchy" this season with a multiple-episode arc. I cannot wait (and I say this with love) for him to have his face bashed in. (WG)

Speaking of McHale, he and his sizable assets are the star of Unreality's gif of the week. As awesome as his "reach" is, Alison Brie's reaction might be even better. (Unreality)

We've covered a bit of Comic-Con here, but just in case you have an hour burning a hole in your pocket today, you can watch the "Firefly" Anniversary panel in its entirety here. (/Film)

Here's a fun little photography project that attempts to match various skin tones with the Pantone Color Chart. ARE YOU LISTENING, CRAYOLA? (humanae)

If I told you the name of the love interest in Tarantino's Django Unchained, you wouldn't believe me. (FilmDrunk)

Um, am I the only one who didn't know that a mountain goat is not, technically, a goat? And that an electric eel is not even an eel? Dude, I don't even know what to believe anymore. (Bird and Moon)

Finally, the cuties from "Doctor Who" were out in full force at Comic-Con this weekend and, honestly, I would watch Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill read the phone book. But, thankfully, we can watch them sing "Bohemian Rhapsody" instead. In the words of Dustin, "swoonsies."

    If I told you the name of the love interest in Tarantino’s Django Unchained, you wouldn’t believe me.

    Broomhilda Von Shaft?? Doesn't that sound like a name Mel Brooks might have used in Young Frankenstein? (And remember, it's pronounced "Frankensteen".)

  • Rebecca Hachmyer

    Save the Empire Records gig for evenings and weekends during the school year. For summer, the only thing better than hanging out with that crazy gang at the Bar None Ranch would be the chance to serve drinks poolside at Malibu Sands.

  • "Aging" at 36?!?!? Sigh.....so many women in their 20's can only wish they could be as beautiful and sexy as Cotillard.

  • Devo14

    My starbucks commercial is an ad on my favorite site! Today is a good day.

  • BWeaves

    That Pantone thing was mildly interesting, until I got to the photo of the guy with the tattoo of scissors cutting his nips off. Nobody talked him out of it?

  • John G.

    A 36-year old woman! And Still Attractive? Michael Bay is going to stab out his eyes. Let's all send him a copy of vogue.

  • Miss Laaw-yuhr

    So true. She's not even bent over a car or anything.

  • dahlia6

    Awesome on the pantone thingy, although I think they skew a little too far to the whitey side of things. What I want to know is did everyone just fly out of a wind tunnel? What is with that hair?

  • lowercase_ryan

    I just realized someday I'll be 60 saying "Damn the man! Save the Empire!!" and the people around me will just think I've lost it.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    That "smart soft pretty things" headline is pretty fantastic. The post itself does not support the theory, particularly, as it's pretty uninformative . Especially since the article behind it is password protected.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    All right, not to come too much to Vogue's defense - it is not the "Aging" issue. It is the "Age" issue. There is a difference.

    As usual with Vogue, it's just an excuse to sell cosmetics. Probably the really expensive, "anti-aging" shit. You're never too young to obsess about wrinkles.

  • Maguita NYC

    Well... Of course. What did you think Vogue was for? Women in politics?
    Vogue sells clothes, make-up, and the latest skinny model who wears those clothes and make-up. The only genius about it is how they have marketed themselves above all other fashion mags.

    That's all. (Merryl Streep's Miranda Priestly says it best in The Devil Wears Prada!)

  • Maguita NYC

    Exactly. "The Age Issue - Wonder Women From 28 to 101". No one is saying that Marion Cotillard is an "aging woman", or actress.

  • Three_nineteen

    So under 28 isn't an age? Why aren't they represented if it's not about getting older or about what the magazine thinks is "older"?
    I would have to interpret that title as saying "We usually don't talk about women over 28 or put pictures of them in our magazines, so here's an issue where we'll do that and get it out of the way until next year".

  • Mara

    Under 28 are too poor to read Vogue, they don't want em

  • Sara_Tonin00

    To be fair, we're all aging (or ageing, if you're British). All the time! But no one is calling her old.

  • Maguita NYC

    Besides, NO ONE dares nowadays say that any actress under 75 is aging... Except for Karl Lagerfeld. Who is a reputed over-the-hill tw-t.

  • Muhnah_Muhnah

    Ah...Bohemian rhapsody. My friends and I like to break out into a full rendition of it in inappropriate places: fancy restaurants, the tube, museums, a restaurant in Zanzibar called Mercury...er...wait...maybe not that last one. Nobody seems to mind.

  • Maguita NYC

    Broomhilda Von Shaft??
    Oh I want to see this pronounced by the different actors: Foxx's slangy, and DiCaprio's fake uppity twang. Should be interesting.

  • Jezzer

    Having someone younger than me on the cover of the "aging" issue makes me stabby.

  • lowercase_ryan

    taking head shots, re-spawning lag times, and shame stains make you stabby as well no?

  • athena23

    Seriously. I just turned 40 and am dealing with it rather well until I see that crap. Just as well I'm not Vogue's primary audience to begin with. Stab some for me.

  • branded_redux

    Easy now. You know how your stabbing elbow gets inflamed. I'll get you another blanket.
