That was my only thought after I finished watching The Guest, starring Dan Stevens (and his abs). I had a visceral reaction to this movie. As soon as it was over I wanted to watch it again because I kind of couldn’t believe what I just saw. Full Story

Jennifer Aniston’s Cake was not acquired coming out of TIFF even though she received a standing ovation and didn’t wear a bra. So why won’t anyone spend any money on what’s being called her finest performance? Well, you don’t spend money unless you think you’re going to make money. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

So it was confirmed yesterday that Matthew McConaughey will not return for Magic Mike 2. The storyline is apparently a road trip, and either he wasn’t invited, or he didn’t want to get in the car. I’m thinking…he didn’t want to get in the car.

Channing Tatum will be back though. And Matt Bomer. And …Joe Meatball. Who keeps posting pictures of his ripped body on Twitter while he’s training for the movie even though I’m not sure he had more than 3 lines in the first one.

Have you seen Boyhood yet? One of the best films of the year, if not THE best film of the year. And Patricia Arquette gives an incredible performance. Joanna sent this article to me today - even though Arquette’s role in Boyhood is a lead, IFC Films will be submitting her for Oscar consideration in the Best Supporting Actress category instead. Full Story

Tom Hiddleston’s schedule shake up

Remember that Ben-Hur remake that would pretty much only be watchable if it starred Tom Hiddleston?  Well it’s no longer starring Tom Hiddleston. Instead it will star Jack Huston, which means I can stop caring about a February movie. Full Story

Hollywood is suddenly obsessed with Hank Williams. It probably has a lot to do with the prolonged fight over the Hank Senior song catalog ending in 2011, or that the Hank Williams Estate, thus resolved, signed a huge licensing deal just last year. At any rate, first there was Tom Hiddleston Full Story

Matt Damon is dusting off his Jason Bourne hat

Sarah Posted by Sarah

Once upon a time, Matt Damon went in hard against Bourne trilogy screenwriter Tony Gilroy. For a couple years he trash-talked Gilroy, taking no pains to hide his animosity, and said he’d never do another Bourne movie so long as Gilroy was involved. Full Story

Man, to borrow from Mimi, that is bleak. I do love fried food though. Here it is – a full length trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1. War. Betrayal. Peeta the puppet. Katniss, as always, is torn. Is there a place for morality between obligation and responsibility? Will Chris Martin be on the soundtrack? Sorry. Full Story

Brange’s post-wedding unhappiness

Brange is in Malta shooting a movie called By The Sea. Angelina wrote it. She’s directing and producing. Brad is also producing. They play a married couple in crisis. There’s already been a lot of talk about how ironic the timing is. I’ve already talked about how I just want them to go at it Mr & Mrs Smith styles again. Full Story

Keira Knightley, one of the most interesting stars of the year. She charmed up a storm in Begin Again, and will soon chase her second Oscar nomination for the over-hyped The Imitation Game, but makes her biggest star turn as an American twentysomething in crisis in Laggies. Knightley's Megan feels like a prisoner in her own life. Full Story

Over-medicated, "bitchy," and sans-makeup: it's Jennifer Aniston like you've never seen her before. In Cake, Aniston plays Claire, a wealthy L.A. woman struggling with the loss of her son. She soon joins a chronic pain support group, and becomes obsessed with the suicide of a cheery woman named Nina (Anna Kendrick), and the life she left behind. Full Story

I actually emailed Lainey about Playing It Cool (formerly known as A Many Splintered Thing) a few months ago when the official synopsis came out, because this is one of the most amazing synopses I’ve seen in recent memory. Here it is: “The story of a young man disillusioned by love who meets a breathtaking young woman at a charity dinner by pretending to be a philanthropist. Full Story

That was me before a headline whore. Brange and children are in Malta working on By The Sea. On the weekend they spent time on a boat. As you can see, the Jolie wore swim shorts. I don’t think I’ve ever seen her like this before. So, there’s the headline explanation. But the other title could have been: Brad Pitt or Sean Penn? Because at first quick glance, I thought it might have been Sean Penn. Full Story
