Dear Gossips,

Was obsessed with two videos yesterday:

Marcel the Shell with shoes on, three!

“That’s the hot zone.”

Yes, of course. We should have been talking a lot more about Jenny Slate. I watched Obvious Child a few weeks ago on demand and I keep waiting for Duana to see it so that we can talk about it together – the writing, the dialogue, Jenny’s easy, natural charm. And of course the takeaway: it’s OK if you don’t feel bad about making that decision; you don’t have to feel bad about Choice.

Then there’s FKA twigs for Google Glass. As Salon posited yesterday “FKA twigs is the only person who should be allowed to wear Google Glass”. Everyone else is called a “glasshole”. Twigs is indeed the “coolest thing to happen to Google Glass, ever”, per Jezebel but, I mean, it’s not like anyone else can walk around blinking up and down and shifting their heads back and forth with those glasses on their face and not look like a f-cking douchebag, even with the styling because …do you have those moves?

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Has anyone had a run like Matthew McConaughey has had the last few years? He’s transformed his career, won an Oscar, and gone from stock rom-com alpha male to one of the biggest and most in demand actors in the world. And he’s done it without seeming to change anything about his persona. Full Story

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were at the ELLE Women in Hollywood event last night. And that reminds me… We’re inside 3 months until the Golden Globe Awards. Tina and Amy are returning as hosts. You remember what happened when they hosted last year? Last year during their opening monologue, they took a shot at George Clooney. Full Story

Wyatt Cenac’s voice is tinny on speakerphone, and he sounds tired, but that might be a trick of his accent, which has all of the drawl of Texas and none of the twang. Best known for his stint on The Daily Show (“Four and a half years,” he emphasizes), Cenac is a comedian and writer whose new stand-up special, Wyatt Cenac: Brooklyn, is premiering on Netflix. Full Story

Seems like it, non? That we’re seeing a lot of Blake Lively lately. Oh. And have you heard? She’s pregnant. Here she is with Ryan Reynolds last night at the Angel Ball in New York doing a great job of not belly-cupping. It’s about as intimate as they’ve ever been however on a red carpet because, oh, haven’t you heard? She’s pregnant. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

A box office win for Brad Pitt’s Fury. Fury’s performance this weekend just made it an Oscar conversation so Part 1 of Brange’s road to Oscar seems to have been accomplished. The rest is up to Unbroken.

As you know, Brad put in some work and hustle to promote this film. When they want, they can sell these two. And I wonder what we’ll be saying, just over 6 months from now, when the Oscar red carpet has been put away, about their campaign and how it started. On August 23, at their wedding. Too cynical? Oh come on. From this perspective it’s a compliment. On strategy they have no equal in Hollywood right now.

On the subject of this weekend’s box office…

Is it time to stop making Nicholas Sparks movies?

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Marvel is still looking for Dr Strange because it definitely won’t be Joaquin Phoenix. His publicist released a statement the other day confirming that negotiations are “dead, dead, dead. A couple of weeks ago they mutually decided to part ways. It was over before the New York Film Festival”. Full Story

On Friday the latest rumor about Superhero Face Punch, which has been filming since 1997 at this point, hit the internet and it’s one of the more interesting assumptions about the movie we’ve heard yet—Jena Malone might be playing a female iteration of Batman’s sidekick, Robin. Full Story

While Brad Pitt continues to promote Fury – with results – Angelina Jolie is in Malta continuing to shoot her film By The Sea. She was photographed in costume, very Liz Taylor, working on a scene the other day. Not sure who the blonde is but Melanie Laurent is supposed to be in the movie and…could be her? Hair looks similar. Full Story

Prince Harry was at work today in Manchester, England in his role as Patron of England Rugby’s All Schools Programme. He participated in a game of touch rugby during teacher training sessions. Happily they let him wear his athletic clothes. Right? Sometimes he shows up at these sporty events in his suits even though he’s supposed to roll around on the field. Full Story
