Dear Gossips,

Crucio, now!

Two things blew up my life yesterday. The first:

ZAYYYYYNNNNN!!!

Maybe you don’t understand the drama, but there were a lot of parents trying to coax their teenagers out of the bathroom last night, OK? This is real pain.

And then…

The Dark Lord Funk came and soothed it. They know the world. They KNOW our world. That’s what makes me so happy about this video – because it was created by legit students of magic. One of us. Or at least one of me. Because I belong to Slytherin House. And we won the House Cup. And I actually do HAVE a wand to drop.

A wand drop!

I don’t carry my wand around with me every day, what the f-ck is my problem?

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Twitter is telling us that Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris were together in Nashville yesterday. And they were dressed the same. And now everyone is wondering whether or not this is happening. They could just be working together. Or the less boring option… Friends with benefits? More than friends with benefits? Here. Full Story

I’m about to compliment Benedict Cumberbatch. Twice! Let’s just list the two compliments back to back: 1.I like his haircut. 2.I like his wedding dress. Check him out yesterday in London wearing his hair shorter. I like this. A lot. So much better. When you have a name like Benedict Cumberbatch and your hair is the way he used to have it, the poncy ass image is a lot easier to believe. Full Story

I had no idea there were more Ninja Turtle movies on the way. So I had to ask Sarah, the Ninja Turtle expert, even though she wouldn’t want to be known as such, if they were shooting a sequel. Apparently, yes. Fine. I can live with that. But WHY ISN’T THERE A SEQUEL TO INSIDE MAN??? It’s almost been 10 years since Inside Man. Full Story

Last night in Hollywood at the Mad Men Black & Red Ball… It’s probably the last major carpet for the show before it concludes in about 8 weeks. So Jon Hamm went all out in a white jacket tux. And Christina Hendricks went all out in a dramatic gown… After all, it’s a ball. Full Story

Sam Taylor-Johnson is done

Not exactly a surprise. Sam Taylor-Johnson didn’t bother trying to pretend during interviews leading up to the release of Fifty Shades Of Grey that there wasn’t creative conflict between her and author EL James. So the speculation that she would not return to direct the sequels was more than justified. Full Story

Claire! Happy 30th Birthday from Katya who wants to remind you that Julia Child never knew what she really wanted until she was in her 30s. Because that’s when so much sh-t gets figured out. You’re good. I don’t worry about you. If you know about Julia Child, you’re good.  Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Deadline reported exclusively yesterday that Warner Bros and Bradley Cooper are working on a deal for him to direct the third (or is it fourth?) remake of A Star Is Born. Warner Bros has a short list of favourite actors: Leonardo DiCaprio, Ryan Gosling, Tom Hardy, Ben Affleck. Right now, off the success of American Sniper, Cooper’s looking a lot like an Affleck contemporary. He’s arguably a better actor. And Clint Eastwood loves him. Eastwood was supposed to take on A Star Is Born. Obviously Cooper has his blessing.

In addition to directing though, if negotiations don’t fall through, Cooper would work on the screenplay and star in the film as well.  Read Full Intro

Zaynnnnnn!!!
