Christopher Nolan and Matthew McConaughey were at Comic-Con this year to present the new trailer for Interstellar. It was a first time for both. Nolan’s one of those directors who doesn’t give anything away before a film’s release. Scripts are said to be hand delivered and actors supposedly have to read them while the person waits outside so that there are never any copies that can potentially be leaked. Full Story

Robert Pattinson covers the new ESQUIRE UK. It’s good shot on the cover. But inside… Those hands. Those weirdly delicate hands scraping his head, why do we need to see this? I interviewed someone recently with the same kind of hands. They’re the hands of the creeper in the horror movie who’s peering around the corner, the guy with the freak show dungeon in the basement of his house. Full Story

A few days ago THR reported that Joaquin Phoenix and Marvel are in negotiations for him to play Dr Strange. I mean, he’s definitely right for it. On talent, he could totally do it. Of course he could. But… is Joaquin Phoenix a Company Man? Think of how RDJ is a Company Man now for Marvel. Full Story

Comic-Con is in full swing and yesterday Benedict Cumberbatch kicked it off in good old fashion convention style—thousands of screaming girls yelling his name in an enclosed space. Actually, I’m trying to remember if Comic-Con was like this in the pre-Twilight days. While I remember plenty of excitable nerds, Twilight brought fangirls, which I don’t really remember before 2008. Full Story

Selena Gomez celebrated her champagne birthday yesterday in Saint Tropez. She went out on the jet ski with a cute guy. A tall, cute guy. Don’t you think JB wishes he was taller? He totally does. It’s probably the only thing he can’t buy. As you know, S would have known that the paps are shooting her. Full Story

Chris Pratt and Anna Faris were on hand at the premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy last night to christen Pratt’s new career as a movie star. I’m not loving his suit. It’s boring, and the tie looks sloppy (needs pressing?), and his douche hair is too much. Chris Pratt is so cute! What is this look? Why is he fighting his hotness? Chris Evans is always fighting his hotness—I need one of the Chrises to just own his sh*t and show up looking great. Full Story

George Clooney spoke to Variety the other day to sh-t on The Daily Mail some more. Click here to read the article. I understand that he wants to treat them like they treat others and it is indeed kinda funny that they have to just eat all his punches bent over. Full Story

Miley’s been back in LA recently on break from her tour. I feel like…she gets papped a lot less than you would expect. Is that a stupid thing to say? I mean, you don’t miss her because she’s active on social media. But in terms of actual pap photos, the way Bieber and Selena get papped, and it’s always a f-cking mess, and even Taylor Swift leaving her apartment giving us a fashion show every day, it’s not as much. Full Story

They all went out together last night. It was a Friends reunion at Craig’s in LA as Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, and Jennifer Aniston met up for dinner, leaving in separate cars. Courteney and Lisa drove themselves. Jen had a driver. And I’m with her man because why not have another glass of wine when someone can take you home? If more of them took that extra step, they wouldn’t always be getting busted for DUI. Full Story

Eva Mendes was photographed on Wednesday, just as news was breaking that she and Ryan Gosling are expecting a baby. As you can see, she was desperately trying to cover her body. Well, they’ve managed to keep this secret for 7 months, supposedly. They’re saying she just stayed in her house the whole time. Full Story
