Dear Gossips,

Sean Penn doesn’t give a lot of interviews. In late 2012 for the January 2013 issue of ESQUIRE, he told the magazine that he didn’t feel that he’d ever been loved and that he’d been frauded by love, presumably by Robin Wright. Click here for a refresher.

Two years later, it’s another interview with ESQUIRE UK and he’s just as candid, only this time his outlook on love is much different. He’s more inclined now to stay home, to stay in LA, close to Charlize Theron…because her son, soon “their” son, Jackson, is settled there. And it certainly sounds like all those marriage rumours are true too:

“Yes, I’d get married again.  Read Full Intro

Ted 2 exists

Seth MacFarlane is such an up-and-down guy. Family Guy, not so great, but American Dad is consistently funny. Ted was surprisingly funny in 2012, but last year’s A Million Ways to Die in the West was bereft of humor, wit, and/or charm. He’s a douche in real life, but he can be entertaining on stage (not at the Oscars, though). 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

Cate Blanchett stepped out in pink silk last night with black sleeves and hem at the AACTA Awards in Sydney. On anyone else… this would be a mess. Easily. Like on someone with sh-tty posture? And a lot less poise? It’s not my favourite Cate fashion moment. But I can appreciate that she can elevate a piece that on anyone else would look suuuuuuper cheap. Full Story

Joss Whedon wants out of the superhero boys’ club

After The Avengers became the third-highest grossing film in modern cinema in 2012, Marvel handed him a bag of money and the gig directing the sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron. Now, approaching the release of Ultron and probably also the end of his tenure at Marvel, Whedon sounds more than ready to go. Full Story

James McAvoy was joined by Anne-Marie Duff last night in London at the after-party following the gala performance of The Ruling Class. I love them, I love them, I love them. And every time I see them, I feel joy and relief. Mostly joy. Joy for them now because they are celebrating. They are celebrating the success of the play. Full Story

You can be the President of the United States. And your teenagers will still be embarrassed of you. I’ve talked about it before but I need to mention it again because Duana and I could not get enough of Malia and Sasha Obama during their dad’s turkey pardon. Their level of OVER IT was all of the world and maybe even the universe. Full Story

After a very public, turbulent pre-production phase, the Steve Jobs biopic written by Aaron Sorkin—disappointingly titled Steve Jobs and not Computer Jesus—is officially underway and shooting around San Francisco. After being plagued by casting problems ranging from a leading Full Story

Gwyneth’s vaginal dimsum

Every time anyone talks about steaming anything, my first thought, being Chinese and all, is dimsum: har gow, siu mai, shrimp noodle rolls, chicken feet, sticky rice wrapped in lotus leaf, pork wrapped in bean curd… But definitely not pussy. Which, apparently, is what Gwyneth Paltrow is recommending at GOOP Full Story

Dear Gossips,

As mentioned last week, I will be defending Raziel Reid’s When Everything Feels Like The Movies on Canada Reads in March. The book was inspired by the true story of a 15 year old boy called Larry who was bullied at school for wearing makeup and heels. In 2008, Larry asked another boy to be his Valentine. Larry’s intended Valentine ended up rejecting him. By shooting him twice in the head the next day. There are kids like Larry who are surviving in silence all the time. 

“I don’t want to survive. I want to live.” Solomon Northup, 12 Years A Slave

Jude, our anti-hero in When Everything Feels Like The Movies is trying so hard to go beyond survival and to find a life. His story is provocative but relatable. His thoughts are irreverent but true.  Read Full Intro

Idris Elba was in Berlin yesterday at the Jaguar presentation. Isn’t that a Bond car? Or a villain car? Aston Martin is the Bond car, right? Whatever. I needed to make a Bond connection there. And he says he’s not Bond…yet: “It’s really just a rumor—and it’s not even my rumor!” Idris went on to tell Bloomberg Full Story

Amal Clooney was in Strasbourg, France with Geoffrey Robertson QC representing Doughty Street Chambers, arguing for Armenia in the case against Dogu Perincek. In 2005, Perincek, chairman of the Turkish Workers’ Party, went to Switzerland to deny Armenian genocide, calling it an “international lie”. Full Story
