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. Full Story

Reese Witherspoon is in Capri. Reese Witherspoon is dancing like there’s no one watching. Oh but someone is always watching…with a smartphone. And they’ll send it to TMZ. Well, at least this time she’s not bitching out a cop for being un-American and reminding him what her name is. Full Story

I’m not finished talking, thinking about JLO. Sorry. It might be because we’re talking about “booty” on The Social today, the artwork she released for the upcoming single. I sit across the hall from Traci Melchor Full Story

This is my favourite thing that happened today. Maybe my favourite thing that will happen all week. That’s what Justin Bieber posted on Instagram a couple of hours ago. Now shake off your old lady for a minute. Try. Try to not be old. Instead, you’re 20. And this is stepping up to you from behind. Full Story

Julia Roberts was on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night. Everyone else has said this already but now I want on that bandwagon too: his writing and production staff make the show. It’s ridiculous. The games are ridiculous. Like the dumbest ideas ever… And I laugh every single time. Full Story

Sarah has written at length about Comic-Con strategy – how often false hype can be generated out of San Diego (Sucker Punch) that ultimately leads to disappointment. But Comic-Con can also be a legitimate momentum build, especially for projects that seemed worrisome, projects that may have been burdened by the weight of expectation. Full Story

Jennifer Lopez was on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen this week to promote the new album. The thing about JLo is that she’s always up for a fun playful interview and she can be really, really cute – on purpose, obviously – but there are some people who do it better than others, non? The clip below is 20 minutes long and the sound is not synched up but it was the best I could do with geo-blocking. Full Story

Neil Patrick Harris. Hedwig And The Angry Inch. They would have asked him to host the Tony Awards again if he wasn’t so busy….WINNING A TONY AWARD. Powered by his performance, the production also won the Best Revival of a Musical award. And he certainly brought it home on stage. Off stage too. Full Story
