Yesterday at the BAFTAs Chris Evans and Henry Cavill presented Julianne Moore with the Best Actress award. Two handsome men of the superhero persuasion stood next to each other, and the internet collectively lost its sh*t. It’s understandable—they’re both really, really, really ridiculously good-looking, though Beardy Chris Evans is working the facial hair better than Cavill. Full Story

Vulture asked a very important question on Twitter last night: Who has more friends, Taylor or Gwyneth? It’s been a year now, right? Since I first started calling Taylor Swift the “Friend Collector”? She’s also, like, the official mascot of music award shows now too. Full Story

Throughout December as we covered the fallout of the Sony Hack, I often wondered how Amy Pascal, co-chair of the studio and head of its Motion Picture Group, could possibly continue on, given how damaging some of the leaked information was to interpersonal working relationships. How effective can you be when you’re constantly apologizing for sh*t-talking behind people’s backs? Hollywood is a high school cafeteria, and in that environment, being caught out as a behind-hand gossip usually results in excommunication. Full Story

When was the last time you saw Ryan Reynolds on the talk show circuit? He can be charming, seems to love to gossip and is cagey as hell. Isn’t that what we’re looking for in a late night guest?

Have you read, I’ll Have What She’s Having? The author, Rebecca Harrington, experiments with different celebrity diets, from Marilyn Monroe (eggs whipped in milk) to Madonna’s arduous and seemingly impossible macrobiotic diet. It’s funny, yes, but also an illuminating look at what it takes to maintain the “ideal body” of the day. Full Story

Has he changed? Is he really sorry? F-ck. I don’t care. All I’m hearing is his big boy voice. And the way his sweater’s hanging off of him on Ellen. And his hair, growing out, curling around his ears and his neck. This is me on one side of the room saying… Uhhhh… Justin Bieber got hot. Full Story

Human cartoon Johnny Depp has had a bad run over the last few years.
