What's Hot In Hollywood

Posted: Updated:

 

Arizona native Jordin Sparks who dropped 50 pounds in the last year and a half says her goal was to become healthier, not to shrink down to a size zero or to look like everybody else. Sparks says her weight loss journey began when she got really sick and realized she needed to make her health a priority. She transformed her diet and became more active, and now she says she feels better than ever. Her journey has led Sparks to have a better relationship with the mirror and to become a role model for young women.

Speaking of role models, it's no surprise that singer Beyonce Knowles is one of "Time" magazine's "100 Most Influential People" of 2014, but the image of her on the cover is being criticized, not praised. Many people have a problem with her outfit or lack thereof. She's scantily clad, wearing nothing but white underwear and a see-through blouse.

The argument is that Beyonce is plenty influential with her clothes on and that the magazine is supposed to be highlighting her brain, not her body. Alternate covers of the magazine feature legendary actor and filmmaker Robert Redford, Brooklyn Nets basketball player Jason Collins and General Motors CEO Mary Barra -- all fully clothed.

In other news from Hollywood, George Clooney got engaged last month to human rights attorney, Amal Alamuddin. There have been multiple reports that the two plan to marry in September, possibly in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

So, now that Clooney is engaged who will take his place as Hollywood's most eligible bachelor?
Entertainment Tonight Facebook fans voted online and here are the results.
Coming in at No. 3 was “People” magazine’s 2011 Sexiest Man Alive, Bradley Cooper, who is 39 years-old.  The Wolf of Wall Street star Leonardo DiCaprio, 39, came in second. And believe it or not, Oscar winner Jared Leto, 42, topped the list coming in at No. 1.

Who's your pick for the next most eligible bachelor in Hollywood? I say Ryan Gosling.
