Today in Typecasting: Kate Upton Auditioning to Play the Other Woman


Kate Upton is apparently entering the model-slash phase of her career. The two-time Sports Illustrated: Swimsuit Edition cover star is reportedly in talks to join Leslie Mann and Cameron Diaz in a romantic comedy about wives and mistresses who join forces to take revenge on a cheating dude.

Nick Cassavetes is directing the comedy, which centers on a woman (Diaz) who finds out that she is “the other woman” in an affair. She teams up with the wife (Mann) to get revenge on the cheating cad of a husband, being played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.
Upton is another one of Coster-Waldau’s mistresses who has no idea he is married and ends up joining the other two in the revenge scheme.


Turns out Beyoncé‘s crystallized nipple shirt was a custom piece designed by the Blonds. According to Women’s Wear Daily, the garment was “inspired by Tamara de Lempicka’s paintings of the female body.”

Miranda Kerr says her Victoria’s Secret contract was not renewed, meaning she is no longer officially an “Angel,” because she couldn’t commit to the “three months at a bare minimum” per year of work for the brand that the multi-million-dollar deal entailed. “The thing is, I’ve been modeling since I was 13,” says Kerr. ”I’m now entering a new phase in my life. I have felt this coming since my son was born and, after I became a mother, I realized I needed to prioritize my time. It’s really important I give 100% to my clients and I have to be careful to make strategic long-term decisions with my personal and business interests. I’ve reached a point in my career where I’m developing my own opportunities that are really reflective of my passions.” [SMH]
