The DAILY FRONT ROW Fashion Los Angeles Awards last night. I’m doing a few posts about this event because there’s a lot to say. But you’ll note… This is not the Taylor Swift crowd. This is Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Kanye West honouring Jeremy Scott. In the front row. Full Story

Last week we learned that Tom Hardy had dropped out of Warner Brothers’ Suicide Squad, the villain team-up movie, and that they were going after Jake Gyllenhaal as his replacement. Well, Jake G has passed, too. So the Suicide Squad remains one member short with production set to begin in April. Full Story

After 20 years in the business, you wouldn’t think Jennifer Aniston needed media training. But when you’re campaigning for an Oscar, a little update doesn’t hurt. As you know, Jen was working with Oscar consultant Lisa Taback on her campaign. And even though those hopes died last Thursday, the effects of that collaboration are still evident, especially in this new interview with The Hollywood Reporter. Full Story

Here are new photos of Chris Evans walking around in a tight shirt. Enjoy. That could be the sum total of this post. But there’s a woman in frame with him, and I’ve been getting emails about a mystery woman sighting last week, so I leave it to you eagle-eyed nerds to decide if the woman in these photos, ID’ed as actress Lindsay McKeon, is the same as the mystery woman from last week. Full Story

Dakota Johnson covers the new issue of VOGUE in anticipation of Fifty Shades Of Grey’s February release. It will be one of many interviews and photos we see of her, but this is certainly a showpiece of her promotional push. I mean, it’s VOGUE, right? Before we get into the interview, let’s talk about Dakota Johnson getting a VOGUE cover to promote a film that no one has seen, based on a terrible book that almost everyone has read. Full Story

We get it, you’re not showing your dick

I feel like it’s one of Jamie Dornan’s key messages: you will not see his dick in Fifty Shades Of Grey. Dornan covers the latest issue of Variety in advance of the film’s February 13 release. Just 3 weeks away now. And, as I’ve been telling you, almost to the point of creepiness now, I can’t wait. Full Story

Kristen Stewart is still doing some promotion for Still Alice, which has opened in a few more theaters on the back of Julianne Moore’s Oscar nomination (it’s doing pretty well in the specialty market, too). She gave an interview to Yahoo to support the movie and she said some really nice things about Moore—whom she’s known personally for years—and the experience of working with actresses like Moore and Juliette Binoche, and if you’re a KStew fan it’s a nice read. Full Story

Anne Hathaway has been out there doing press for the upcoming Song One but since everyone’s in award season fever, she’s kind of moving under the radar. By her standards. Usually Annie tops the headlines. Here she is in New York in a green coat – great colour on her. Annie talked to Hitfix Full Story

Kevin Hart’s The Wedding Ringer was supposed to open big – it would have been his fourth #1 but as it stands, American Sniper is exceeding expectations and Paddington is being bolstered by fantastic reviews (like Sarah’s here). So Kevin has to settle for a slim #2 which, if you’ve been following Kevin Hart, is not what he wants. Full Story

Jennifer Aniston was not nominated for an Oscar last week. And there was a junket scheduled right afterwards for her to promote Cake. Like a true professional, she went ahead with her press obligations and did not get the chicken pox. (Oh come on, Brangelunatics. It was the easy, cheap joke.) So now we’ve turned this into the Snubbed Tour. Full Story

Princess Catherine made two public appearances last week and she was right back at it today in London visiting the Family Friends programme at Kensington Academy. By her standards, it’s a heavy workload. As you know, Kate is due in April. And she’s supposedly planning a holiday in February as her mother, Carole, will be celebrating her 60th birthday in Mustique. Full Story
