Celebrities are still getting ice-bucketed every day. And even though it’s been going on almost a week now, what’s keeping my interest is the fact that we’re still waiting on some big names. The biggest names. Like...
Finally someone nominated Angelina Jolie. It took Vin Diesel to do that. Come on. You would watch the Jolie get ice-dumped. And Brad Pitt. And George Clooney. I already wrote yesterday that I hope Matt Damon nominates George Clooney.
You know who came up with the best one though?
Gisele Bundchen. Gisele nominated Anna Wintour. It’s genius. Jamie Oliver nominated Prince Harry which… I want to see that only to have him nominate his sister-in-law right after. Because, well, what does Mrs Cambridge look like without all those curls?
Yours in gossip,
Someone yelled at me over email today about how there’s not enough Chris Pratt on the site. Fine. But there aren’t always fresh pics either. You people sure know how to conjure your favourite celebrities… Look! New photos of Chris Pratt! EVERYONE loves Chris Pratt right now. Full Story

I’m not sure it was hard for her. And for any of the professional athletes doing it. Like, she nominated Roger Federer who sits in an ice bath after every tennis match. They all do. But anyway, here’s Anna Wintour accepting her ALS Ice Bucket Challenge in response to her daughter Bee, and not to Gisele Bundchen, as noted in today’s open. Full Story

Sarah texted me yesterday after I posted that video of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner doing the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. “That ALS bucket video is the most I’ve liked Affleck in a while. That’s also the most I’ve liked Jennifer Garner ever.” They were pretty cute, right? And then I saw that John Krasinski and Emily Blunt did their thing and I realised that even though it may not have been intentional, that was one of the few times we’ve seen the Afflecks be like how we imagine Blunt-Krasinskis to be.

My favourite concert of all time was Madonna’s Blonde Ambition. I was 16 years old. She was EVERYTHING. And, in particular, in Toronto, if you’ve seen Truth Or Dare, you know about the drama – would she be arrested or would she be muzzled? Or… because it’s Madonna…would she just do it more? Blonde Ambition was training for so many of the artists you see today – from costuming to choreography, from dance moves to dancer selection. And then, on top of all that, on top of the bustiers and the cone bras and the ponytails and the pin curls, it was the songs. THE SONGS! Look at this set list! Express Yourself (with Everybody) Open Your Heart Causing A Commotion Where’s The Party? Like A Virgin Like A Prayer Papa Don’t Preach (these three songs back to back to back is a moment in time, I’m telling you) Sooner Or Later Hanky Panky Now I’m Following You Material Girl Cherish Into The Groove Vogue Holiday Keep It Together Come on!

Robert Downey Jr and Ben Affleck are probably the biggest movie stars to date to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, right? I mean you can talk all you want about the Zac Efrons of the world but, come on, there are tiers. And Zac’s not on the Tom Cruise tier, no matter what you think about his church. Full Story

Yesterday, in a display of stubbornness so determined it’s almost impressive, Marvel tweeted a first-look image of Paul Rudd in character as Scott Lang for Ant-Man, which is now officially in production. The movie that was greenlit purely to humor Edgar Wright is now being made because Marvel can’t admit defeat and acknowledge when something isn’t really working (see also: Agents of SHIELD).

On her own, she’ll be famous. It was announced yesterday that Kevin Smith is shooting a new movie called Yoga Hosers about two 15 year old female superheroes starring his own daughter Harley Quinn and Johnny Depp’s daughter Lily Rose. Johnny will also have a role in the film. They’ve already started production. Full Story
The Emmys are on Monday and it’s always a good show, right? It’s not as loose as the Globes, but the TV stars aren’t hidden in the back for that long, sheepish walk up to the podium. For one night, they are all George Clooney. To create some buzz, the Television Academy released Barely Legal Pawn Full Story
Kate! You’re leaving for the job of a lifetime in Abu Dhabi…and your twin Morgyn is going to miss you so much. Thabo too…even though he’ll be joining you soon. Thabo will be fine. He’ll ride out the summer in Vancouver which is basically heaven for dogs. Look at him! There’s no swimming like that over there. Full Story
Coming soon to television: Keanu Reeves.
As reported by Deadline yesterday, he’ll be starring in and producing a series called Rain based on Barry Eisler’s books. John Rain is an assassin whose murders are set up to look like natural cause. He’s an international man of mystery and a lonely loner. Oh, but aren’t they all?
Professionally, this is the right move. Keanu seems to know about playing his position. And, happily, he’s playing it without having to resort to joining The Expendables. You know, I still can’t breathe when Speed is on TV and I’m watching him stare intently forward out of the front window of the bus. Read Full Intro
