Zac Efron is in Georgia working on a movie called Dirty Grandpa. He was photographed on set today. In between scenes, he appears to be dropping down for a set of push-ups. I mean, good for him, you know? Maximise every minute. It can be boring, sitting around in your trailer all day, waiting for them to set up the lights and block the shots. Full Story

Check out Penelope Cruz this weekend in Rome on the set of Zoolander 2. Apparently she plays a cop. Like a cop who’s a hybrid of Uma Thurman in Kill Bill and Oops Britney? Whatever. She is wearing the sh-t out of that leather jumpsuit. And her hair. One of the best heads of hair in Hollywood. Full Story

For a movie that features a protagonist who boned two members of the same family, The Age of Adaline is incredibly boring. There’s so much potential drama to fuel the story of a woman who doesn’t age, and who, it is implied, has left a string of lovers spanning a century behind her, but Adaline is hell-bent on being the least interesting version of that story, more interested in presenting the titular Adaline (Blake Lively, in her first role since 2012’s Savages) as a proper lady who has weathered the century unchanging.

I know I don’t have to rehash this for you, the Johnny Depp week. And how they’ve turned that around in just 5 days. From “missing” and a “mess” to, oh, he might win an Oscar. Do women ever get the same courtesy? Fine. I won’t turn this isn’t a feminist crusade. Full Story
Adam Sandler is making a new movie, The Ridiculous 6, which is slated to air on Netflix at some point. It’s a spoof of Westerns, the title is a play on The Magnificent Seven, and it stars Sandler as a guy who’s raised in a band of Apaches after being adopted by them as a child. It’s the kind of premise that, were it masterminded by Mel Brooks, could probably be really f*cking funny, but the minute I heard Sandler was coming for my heritage, I felt a chill. Full Story

I LOVE these pictures of Julia Roberts. So much. They're just so...her. She's in New York, working on Money Monster. Let's start with the shots of her leaning out the car window, looking like she's throwing some sharp words at the crew members. Probably not. This is Photo Assumption after all, but still. Full Story
Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer were in Vegas earlier this week at CinemaCon to promote The Man From U.N.C.L.E. It comes out in August. And as I mentioned earlier this week, neither star has much heat right now so the marketing team for the movie has to get on it, soon. Cavill in particular, given that he's Superman, really needs this. Full Story
Before I shut down last night I watched the RDJ interview that everyone’s been talking about. He was in London the other day to promote Avengers: Age Of Ultron. The outlet was Channel 4 with journalist Krishnan Guru-Murthy. It’s making headlines because the video is a major cringe. Guru-Murthy starts with a series of standard, innocuous movie questions and then attempts to get personal. Full Story
Did not or could not? Russell Crowe is currently promoting his directorial debut The Water Diviner. He’s been extra generous with gossip during this press tour. I’m obsessed with the one about Michael Jackson prank calling him. You heard about this? Michael would just ring up Russell’s hotel room and start asking to speak to Mr Wall. Full Story

Yesterday, the Cannes Film Festival announced its full jury for this year. And many are calling it the most physically attractive jury ever which I’m sure will go over well with the jury members. Still, it’s not like you can’t see it, right?
Jury co-presidents Ethan and Joel Cohen will be joined by 7 others including Sophie Marceau, Rokia Traore, Guillermo del Toro, and Canada’s cinematic wonderboy Xavier Dolan because – can you believe it? – at just 26 years old, he’s had four films in the festival and doesn’t have one ready yet for this season so he has time to judge. Lazy, right? And very pretty.
Then there’s Rossy de Palma, one of the most interesting faces of our time, who has also been named to the jury. You remember her from Almodovar’s Women On The Verge Of A Nervous Breakdown?
First… Please enjoy these photos of Idris Elba eating a donut. There are, like, 3 people in the entire world who can eat a donut and still manage to look attractive. He would be one of them. Next… Simon Pegg is co-writing the next Star Trek movie. He was asked at CinemaCon yesterday about his progress…and whether or not the rumours were true that Idris would be joining the cast.
