Rihanna: 'My Love Life's Pretty Much Non-Existent'

Jacopo Raule/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- If you believe the tabloids, Rihanna's juggling both Drake and Chris Brown and has various other guys popping on and off of her radar.  But as the star tells Harper's Bazaar in a new cover story, the reality of her romantic life is very different.

"I have been conservative in my love life…it's pretty much non-existent," she reveals. "If I come across someone who I find really cool, I'll hang out. But the minute I find that we’re getting too close I just -- I don't let people in."

Her attitude towards love seemingly has something to do with the assault she suffered in 2009 at the hands of then-boyfriend Brown.  "When I was in love, I fell so hard. I was really, really, really in love," she tells the magazine. "The way it made me feel was priceless. And in a blink of an eye my whole life changed. Everything that I knew was different. I never thought I'd feel that pain in my life. I'm afraid of feeling that again."

Rihanna says she makes up for her "conservative" love life by being, she says, "rebellious through my music, through my fashion, tattoos, and my hair."

Ri-Ri also talks about her sleek figure, which she says remains slim no matter what she eats, much to her dismay.  "I don't know if there's something going on with my body right now, but I’m eating everything in life! I miss my ass. It just went away! I need a butt. I have an idea of one, but it's not living up to its full potential right now."

The August issue of Harper's Bazaar, featuring Rih on the cover, hits newsstands July 17.

Cynthia Nixon Says Bisexuality Is Not a ‘Choice’

Jemal Countess/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- Cynthia Nixon, 45,  recently clarified her claim that she is gay by choice. The Sex and the City actress recently told New York Times Magazine, “I understand that for many people it’s not, but for me it’s a choice, and you don’t get to define my gayness for me.”

Nixon’s comment upset some members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, who took umbrage with the idea that they have control over their sexual preference. In a statement published by the LGBT magazine The Advocate, Nixon said:

“While I don’t often use the word, the technically precise term for my orientation is bisexual. I believe bisexuality is not a choice, it is a fact. What I have ‘chosen’ is to be in a gay relationship. As I said in the Times and will say again here, I do, however, believe that most members of our community -- as well as the majority of heterosexuals -- cannot and do not choose the gender of the persons with whom they seek to have intimate relationships because, unlike me, they are only attracted to one sex.”

Nixon is engaged to her longtime partner Christine Marinoni. They have a young son.

Charlize Theron Looking for 'Commitment' Not Marriage

Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) -- Actress Charlize Theron recently stated that she is looking for a long-term commitment, and not marriage.

The 35-year-old Oscar-winner told Piers Morgan in an interview that aired Thursday on CNN, "I really want for myself a long-term relationship, and I have been in long-term relationships."

"That's the kind of union that I want.  The actual ceremony is not something that is important to me, but I see the importance for other people," she added.  

When asked if she thinks in the future she will want to tie the knot , she responded, "I don't,  I treat my relationships like marriages, I really do."

Theron, who split with longtime boyfriend Stuart Townsend last year, said, being married was "never something that was important to me."

'Lost' Actor, 51, Weds 16-Year-Old

Brand X Pictures/Thinkstock(LAS VEGAS) -- May-December romances aren't unusual. But when the bride can't yet vote and the groom is eligible to join AARP? That's extreme, even for Hollywood.

Green Mile and Lost actor Doug Hutchison, 51, revealed on Monday that he wed aspiring country singer Courtney Alexis Stodden, 16, in May.

"We're aware that our vast age difference is extremely controversial," the couple told E! News in a statement released by their spokesperson. "But we're very much in love and want to get the message out there that true love can be ageless."

Stodden's mother gave parental consent so the two could wed in Las Vegas.

"We are totally supportive of this marriage," Krista Stodden told "Doug is a wonderful man and we love him." She added, "Courtney was a virgin when she married Doug. She is a good Christian girl."

So, how did the two get involved? The fact that Stodden is signed to Hutchison's production company, Dark Water, might have something to do with it. A former beauty pageant queen (she competed for the title of Miss Teen Washington USA last year), Hutchinson is trying to make it as a country music crooner.

Celebuzz compiled a variety of her YouTube videos, including one where she talks for nearly seven minutes about overcoming bullying and explains that she wrote the song "Don't Put It On Me" (the video for which features a pink-haired dog) to support victims of bullying.

Character actor Hutchison is probably best known for playing problematic prison guard Percy Wetmore in The Green Mile. He also played DHARMA Initiative leader Horace Goodspeed in the TV drama Lost and has appeared in Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, Guiding Light, The X-Files, and 24.

Cameron Diaz: Who Needs Marriage?

George Pimentel/Getty Images for Creative Artists Agency(LONDON) -- You're more likely to see Cameron Diaz walking the red carpet than walking down the aisle.  The 38-year-old actress, who's currently dating New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez, tells the June issue of Maxim she's not really into settling down.  Asked whether she thinks marriage is a dying institution, Diaz said, "I do.  I think we have to make our own rules.  I don't think we should live our lives in relationships based off old traditions that don't suit our world any longer."

Diaz, who counts Matt Dillon and Justin Timberlake among her exes, backed up her words to the British edition of Elle.  In its June issue, she said, "I think a lot of people are married to people they're not romantic with any more.  I just didn't ever marry anybody that I then had to get divorced from.  We break up.  We move on."

Diaz gives her take on making a relationship work to Maxim, explaining, "Guys need women who challenge them and don't let them get away with their sh**.  Women, conversely, need to not be crazy bitches who blow up when their guys tell them something that scares them."
