Emma Watson's Next Green Fashion Line, and More Celebrity News
With the second-to-last installment of the "Harry Potter" film series premiering in theaters this weekend, actress Emma Watson announced plans for her next project: Another fashion collaboration.

"Mad Men" Actor Gives Up Cars, Kids, and Toilets for SustainabiltyPhoto: Jesse Grant/Stringer/Getty
Still suffering from "Mad Men" withdrawal? Get your Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce fix in this MSNBC interview with actor Vincent Kartheiser, who plays Pete Campbell. Kartheiser has said that his green efforts include going without a car of his own or a toilet in his house -- and here, he elaborates on his environmental choices, which include cutting meat out of his diet, adding drought-resistant landscaping to his property, and planning to not have children. But Kartheiser says he knows this is just the beginning: "What I've done isn't miraculous. It's nothing that anyone out there couldn't do. And I think that there's lots of things I do in my life that aren't green, so if there's a couple things in your own life that you can do to change, and make them more sustainable, I think that's the route to go."

Gwyneth Paltrow Dreams of Life on a FarmPhoto: Andrew Halpern/Creative Commons
While promoting her new role as a country singer in the film "Country Strong," actress Gwyneth Paltrow opened up about her love for rural areas -- and told Reuters she would have no problem leaving her heat-leaking London home to settle down in the middle of Tennessee. "I would love it," she said. "My dream is to have land somewhere outside of Nashville and have a big organic farm outside of the city." If the Oscar-winner needs advice on making the switch from city to country, she could always call Nicole Kidman, Elizabeth Hurley, or Vera Farmiga -- all of whom have farms of their own.
