“Insanity” “Spoiled” “Minimally talented” Just some of the words Scott Rudin used to describe Angelina Jolie to Amy Pascal in those leaked Sony emails. And that’s likely your main focus because she’s ANGELINA JOLIE. So you’re like, OMG, she must be such a f-cking crazy bitch. Full Story

I feel like there should be a rating system on Twitter for how long you stayed with Peter Pan last night. I had on-the-laptop errands to do so I thought I’d be in for the long haul, but I definitely found myself blinking awake during one of the various pirate dances post-child-kidnapping. Okay, so…?  Well, it’s no Sound Of Music. Full Story

This post is written with no tone, no expression. At least that's the attempt. I Can't Ariana Grande performed at the Victoria's Secret fashion show in London last night. It must have been a terrifying incident because her face, the fear on her face. Full Story

Who poses harder than Victoria Beckham? Maybe Lea Michele. Pffft. Can Lea Michele pull of a TABLE POSE though? God these crack me up. You didn’t expect Posh to just sit a table without cocking something, did you? When she poses on a carpet, she cocks the hip. When she poses at the table, the cocks the shoulder. Full Story

And he can! He can! James McAvoy was on Jonathan Ross this weekend. So was Barry Manilow. And it turns out McAvoy is a Fanilow. He told Ross that he used to dress up in his sisters “wee white trousers” as a kid to sing “the love story of Tony and Lola”. McAvoy is all about Copacabana. Full Story

The last time a group of comely young singers came together for a musical movie sequel about a choir; it was Sister Act 2 - a movie which, no joke, has informed my friendships, my wedding, my career. And which, it goes without saying, far surpassed the kick-ass-in-its-own-right original. There is nothing wrong with a surprise sequel to a choir movie. Full Story

There’s something about good actors also being good mimics. There’s some connection between being good at one and also being good at the other. It makes a certain kind of sense, especially given accent work and how being able to mimic would make mastering an accent easier. So when you tell me that Benedict Cumberbatch is good at impressions, it’s like—well of course he is, he’s a super good actor. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

On the weekend when I was prepping Monday’s column, I came across a couple shots of Sophia Loren arriving in Taiwan on Sunday. Wasn’t sure how I would be able to use them. Entertainment Weekly just gave me a reason. (Thanks Victoria!)

In May when I posted photos of Sophia at Cannes (click here for a refresher), I wrote that “I never mention Sophia on this blog without referencing her infamous cut-eye on Jayne Mansfield”. It is the probably the most famous, most spectacular cut-eye of all time. And, in a new interview to celebrate her upcoming AFI achievement and the release of her memoir, Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow: My Life, EW actually asks her about it!

Even Sophia thinks what went down was “amazing” – that’s her word, not mine.  Read Full Intro

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know how I feel about Daniel Radcliffe. I’ve been interviewing him for almost 10 years. And while he might disagree, in my mind it’s practically a relationship. You’d be crazy not to want a relationship with him. Goddamn he’s so nice. Full Story

Amy Poehler’s book, Yes, Please, comes out today. Have you bought it yet? I’m halfway through and so far, I love it. I think it’s her self-awareness. It’s the way she’s all like, f------ck my divorce suuuuuuucked. And, Jesus, I must be the only person who’s ever felt so defeated. Full Story

Bradley Pitts Between Two Ferns

Brad Pitt really wants you to see Fury. The small details are what get me initially. Like how they Scotch tape the microphones on this show. It’s a slow build. The first two minutes aren’t all that exciting. But then. Zach Galifianakis goes for it. I mean, sure, it’s not hard to go for it when both of you are in on it. 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
