For a couple of weeks now, several tabloids have been reporting on the alleged imminent demise of the Jennifer Garner-Ben Affleck marriage.

Here are Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris leaving her NYC apartment separately today. As usual, she’s in a crop. Under coveralls. I can’t hate this look. If I was as tall as she is, I would totally try it. As you know, Taylor and Calvin went out for dinner the other night holding hands. Full Story

For years Marvel has dominated the market of white actors named Chris, building a veritable Chris army with the likes of Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, and Chris Pratt. But now Warner Brothers/DC is striking back, claiming a Chris of their own—Chris Pine, who is negotiating to co-star in Wonder Woman. Full Story

Tom Cruise is trying to make orange his colour in Georgia on the set of Mena today. I’m not sure if he’s also trying, unsuccessfully, to make himself Jon Hamm in the pants. Probably just a handkerchief. In other Tom news, remember what I said about how he endears himself to the crew? To the production? The cantankerous Alec Baldwin, who’s in the upcoming Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, claims to have quite enjoyed the Tom Cruise experience, telling The Hollywood Reporter Full Story

Archie Panjabi attended the San Andreas premiere in Hollywood yesterday. And instead of just walking the red carpet, she did stop for interviews. Here’s how this sh-t usually works – if the celebrity doesn’t want to answer certain questions about certain topics, the publicist will give you a warning. Full Story

Check out Daniel Craig in London on Sunday night shooting Bond Spectre. God he looks great in that ¾ coat. Actually, no, he looks great in both coats. Spectre is due in theatres November 6. That…doesn’t feel like it’s too far away. And I feel like it doesn’t leave a lot of time for post. Full Story

Chris Pratt is about to start heavy press for Jurassic World. So he posted a pre-apology on Facebook in the event that he f-cks up during an interview. It’s wonderful. He is wonderful. Let’s read it together first:   (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d. Full Story

There was a rally at Foxborough yesterday: Free Tom Brady. New England Patriots superfans gathering in support of their quarterback who’s appealing his 4 game suspension, ostensibly for deflating some balls but, really, for trying to cover it up. He’s like Martha Stewart that way. If you recall, for Martha, it wasn’t all that much money, especially not for her. Full Story

As part of his cover feature in June’s GQ, Chris Pratt filmed a little comedy segment for the internet in which he gives acting lessons, except he got hammered and started the bit by saying he’s too drunk to do the bit. He then proceeds to do the bit while being obviously three sheets to the wind. Full Story

If you hate Gwyneth Paltrow, and so many of you do (which I’ll never understand because what would gossip be with only Kate Middletons and no Gwyneth Paltrows?), this is your birthday. G appeared last night on the Red Nose Day special on NBC. She was supposed to be like some kind of action hero, jumping down from a helicopter, rolling onto the roof, and arriving on stage on a wire, strapped into a harness…. Full Story

This week the internet was scandalized when an Australian tabloid ran a story asserting that Rebel Wilson has been lying about her age and background since breaking out in Bridesmaids. Wilson’s age of record was 29, and she had at various points claimed to grow up in the “ghetto” with “bogan” (working class) parents. Full Story

Charlize Theron left Cannes to attend the Life Ball in Vienna on the weekend. I was surprised to see her there. Because, you know, the Life Ball, though important and for a good cause, doesn’t normally attract such A listers. It’s typically Hollywood Ebola Hilton. Or Kanye West’s wife. Full Story

OK so the fashion moment we were waiting for… Emma Stone at the Palais tonight in Cannes... And… Le sigh. Of course. She’s gorgeous. She’s wearing the hell out of it. She’s just so lovely. And I love how playful and fun she was, hamming it up for photographers. Full Story
