Kate Bosworth debuts her engagement ring on Twitter: pretty or famewhore-y?

Kate Bosworth on WhoSay

I don’t really get why this story was a thing yesterday, but I guess it’s news because Kate Bosworth managed to announce her engagement TWICE and get “breaking news” coverage on People Mag both times. Kate first announced her engagement to director Michael Polish back in August, when she referred to Michael as her “fiancé” in a travel-blog post on Vogue – which, incidentally, was kind of a cool way to confirm her engagement, I thought. But Kate had to ruin it by confirming it once again on her Twitter. She tweeted the header photo, showing off her ring, and she wrote, “This photo was taken by my husband-to-be. Thank you for all the wonderful engagement wishes. … We feel truly blessed.” Famewhore. Blah.

As for the ring… everyone keeps calling it “enormous” so am I a crackhead for not seeing it like that? Obviously, it’s bigger than many engagement rings, but people are going on and on about it like it’s Elizabeth Taylor’s Krupp Diamond or something. It’s just a pretty, nice-sized ring.

Oh, and Star Mag has a story this week about how Kate is secretly still in love with Alexander Skarsgard. A source says, “Whenever she’s with her girlfriends, Alex is all she wants to talk about.” You know how I know that’s full of sh-t? Because I don’t think The Bos has many girlfriends.

    The ring’s nice, but the pic is better suited as a Facebook post. All the girls can feign happiness for her, while secretly discussing the minuscule size (in comparison to the rest of Hollywood rings).

  2. DailyNightly says:

    It actually looks like she is taking the picture herself, if you look at her rt arm. Why no close-up of the ring? Another Crapmint special of the month?

  3. GiGi says:

    These two are constantly tweeting pics of each other. That stone is probably only 2 carats, but looks bigger on her skeletor hand.

    I kind of love the ring. It looks simple, maybe like those handmade bezel sets. I bet it’s yellow gold, too. (is my jewelry obsession showing, lol?)

  4. brin says:

    I’m kind of “meh” about her/them/ring so I’ll just say good luck to them.

  5. Jill says:

    I never noticed the difference in the colors of her eyes. Her right eye has a sharp spot of brown at the bottom, but the left one appears completely blue.

    Very interesting and pretty.

    And as for the rest of it, I second what brin wrote.

  6. sara says:

    I don’t believe the Star mag story mostly because she and this Polish dude are obsessed with each other. It’s creepy.

  7. jamie says:

    She looks like she’s sucking her thumb in that pic. There’s something about her that is so unlikable, I wish I could pinpoint it.

  8. Abby says:

    Many girlfriends? I don’t think she has any at all. Not true friends. She strikes me as the type that identifies herself by the man she is with at the time with no real sense of self. That type of person can’t be a good friend to anyone, as she changes with each man. She’s not even friends with past co-stars …

    • stellalovejoydiver says:

      Helena Christensen is her best friend, I think they met at the Vanity Fair party a couple of years ago. The Bos even gushed in a (Vogue?)interview about Helena´s figure. Tbh I can see them talking about Alex, because he´s totally Helena´s type (he resembles Norman Reedus and her current boyfriend Paul Banks from Interpol, who will obviously dump her for me;), but the Bos and Polish seem to be genuily into each other, a couple of days ago they all went to Paul Banks´ concert in LA.

  9. midnightmoon says:

    Still very pretty, after looking so rough for a very long time.

  10. CC says:

    Is that even a question? lol….. when is she NOT a famewhore? Well only after she has her facials and peelings and such and doesn’t want pap pics showing her all red in the face like she had a nasty sunburn.

    And yea, this is the type of girl who only “plays nice” with other girls if she wants something out of them.

  11. TheOriginalKitten says:

    I LOVE her eyes and I think she’s really, really pretty. That is all.

  12. grabbyhands says:

    I see she’s been taking classes at the Lohan Institute of Posing judging by the thumb in her mouth. Why do women think that’s attractive?

  13. Jenna says:

    Ugh. I’ll never understand why this woman gets posts on here. For serious.

    As for that rumor, please. You’re right for assuming she doesn’t have many friends. That’s the rumor apparently.

    • littlemissnaughty says:

      LOL I know what you mean but I’ll tell you why she gets posts. Because people like me LIVE for the bullsh-t this woman throws at us. God, I find her calling the paparazzi, her jewelry endeavor, her crappy movies, and her general air of smugness and vapid self-promotion so so SO entertaining.
      I miss her and Skarsgard, to be honest. It was the most fun I ever had hating on a dumb couple. Him being grumpy all the time but still pretty to look at and her eating up the attention like the crazy famewhore she is.
      I find her twitter hilarious and I will never ever understand how she still has a career.

      There. :-) It’s my fault that she still gets posts. … Sorry?

  14. Mar says:

    She is so damn boring to me and I haven’t seem her acting in ages. In other words -who cares?

  15. Patricia says:

    I’m glad they’re happy. The ring is pretty and she looks beautiful.

    But if I have to hear about how “blessed” someone is one more time I’m going to throw up. Can we just put that crap to bed already or what?!

  16. lucy2 says:

    That’s a weird/famewhorey photo of yourself to post. If you want to show off the ring, do a closeup of the ring, not whatever she’s doing there.

  17. Cloud&Feather says:

    Someone explain the thumb in mouth/thumb to lips or teefs/thumb sucking pose, please AND thank you!

    Is there any none creepy guy out there that finds this attractive?

    Side note: I like that glittery black lace dress, but the belt is ruining it.

    As for the ring…meh…looks like any mall jewelry-store find. Not much of anything compared to the engagement rings in her world.

  18. bammer says:

    Who wouldn’t be in love with Akars and the attention he brought her. So glad he removed himself from the Bos trainwreck.

  19. Mirella says:

    Is she sucking her thumb? I think she needs to realize that her 15 minutes were up years ago.

  20. Sersei says:

    She is the definition of famewhore. She and her husband-to-be are equally pathetic. And that pose shows she doesn’t have an original or creative bone in her body.

  21. ramona says:

    1) She has absolutely stunning eyes.

    2) That is just about all she’s got going for her.

    3) If you’re going to claim a self-portrait was taken by someone else, crop your arm out.

  23. KellyinSeattle says:

    I think I’m one of the few who doesn’t give a rat’s ass about engagement rings…I even told my ex husband he could get me a fake (he didn’t)…also, couldn’t care less to see the unveiling of J. Aniston’s engagement ring…..yawn

  24. lrm says:

    I’ve never seen her ‘act’, except for the famewhoring aforementioned….
    But she has great, classic style and is beautiful-very beautiful in a timeless way. I think she could rep more fashion and cosmetic houses for print ads, personally…..

    She’s WAY too thin, though slightly less anorexic looking in these pics, which is scary b/c if this is not as skinny…..yea, she’s always this side of thin….

    If anything, she’s still into orlando bloom rather than askars-who knows?

    I don’t dislike her-and i would rather see her pimping herself than all of the other reality stars combined.

    Plus, I dont have twitter and dont’ follow it-so unless a blog like this one covers her posts, i’d never know…..

    I dont really get why ppl hate her-it’s like the siena miller thing [although i know SM had that married dude affair] but it’s the same level of hate for kate bos, isn’t it?
    she does not bug me, but i rarely see or hear of her-lol.

  25. Bodhi says:

    Does the question need to be asked? Its Kate Bosworth, so famewhore.

    I love the dress in the last picture

  26. RobN says:

    Can you be a famewhore when nobody really pays any attention to you?

  27. Bluedog says:

    Why does everyone hate her? What has she done?

    • Palefire says:

      I dunno I really don’t obsess over actresses but I do think Kate bosworth is really beautiful. I wish she would help her hair a bit she truly is someone that could use extensions. I think her career could of been a lot better too. She always dresses stunning and keeps her personal life pretty commendable. I don’t think she’s a fame whore. She seems to be in relationships for love. Maybe her career sucks bc she’s not a fame whore I e casting couch chick w fake boobs. I think she’s papped a lot bc she’s always wearing upcoming trends and wears them well. I like Kate. She just seems like a very guarded reserved person. Dangerous for a woman she gets labeled a cold bitch but if it wear a dude we all think he was reserved and intelligent.

      • cr says:

        She gets papped because she calls them, probably about 90% of the time.
        Being a lowlevel fashionista isn’t enough for her to get papped that much, and she’s not had a successful movie in years.

        Her career could have been better, she’s not the world’s worst actress. But she seemed to stop focusing on that on focused on being ‘famous’ and a fashionista (with a lot of help from her stylist Cher Coulter).

      • Catelyn says:

        Ahahahaah, this was a joke, right? Because you described the exact opposite of Kate Bosworth. (Oh and she uses extensions and wiglets all the time.)

  28. She is a says:

    Stalker of ex bfs
    Pap caller
    Stuck up
    Bed hopper
    Husband stealer
    That’s all I have on kb feel free to add

  29. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    Definitely a famewhore move, but coming from her, do we expect anything less?

    As for the ring, meh, its nothing amazing or pretty either.

  30. Bobby sue says:

    I thought she was beyond stunning/gorgeous when Blue Crush came out. Then she went anorexic and her face, skin and hair suffered terribly for it. Now I feel meh about her.
    Ring is pretty and suitable for her hand. I think her most fame was Askars era. Hopefully she’s happy with this guy.

  31. donnadew says:

    And they both look ecstatic about their “engagement” don’t they? Especially him. He looks about as excited as the statues on Easter Island.

  32. coco says:

    There is absolutely NO WAY she could be having hot sex with this midget after banging alexander skarsgard…she loves Polish bcuz he is into her….wait until a new hot guy comes around
