 This b-tch. Terrence Howard played Rhodey, Tony Stark’s best friend, in the first Iron Man movie. He was good in the role. I enjoyed their chemistry. I enjoyed his exasperation every time Tony behaved like, well, Tony. Clearly Howard enjoyed himself too. Because he wanted more money to come back for the sequel(s). Full Story

To promote This is the End, Seth Rogen, Danny McBride, James Franco and Jonah Hill were interviewed for a cover feature on Rolling Stone. Among that group, who do you think would come across as the most pompous and least fun? If you guessed Jonah Hill, you guessed right. And in a group that includes Franco, who’s built a vacation house up his own ass, that’s kind of a problem. Full Story

Vogue has introduced a web series called Elettra’s Goodness featuring model Elettra Wiedemann, daughter of Isabella Rossellini. Since it’s Vogue and since Wiedemann has quite the pedigree, they’ve been able to recruit some high profile guests...starting with Gossip Girl now homemaker Blake Lively. Full Story

I wrote last week that I prefer the Joan Rivers way of face-jacking which is that she does it and she doesn’t lie about it. Ashley Judd wrote a piece with big words lecturing everyone last year after the Internet went crazy about what she called, at the time, a reaction to “steroid medication” due to illness. Full Story

Don’t be ridiculous. This is not about Anna Kendrick and Kristen Stewart -- why would you think that? The title tells you everything you need to know. Obviously the title refers to Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz. Last month Lutz declared during a magazine interview that he would win an Oscar one day. Full Story

How many As IF Sit DOWNs can you throw at one person at a time? A few years ago, Lindsay Lohan declared that she intended to win an Oscar by the time she was 30. We laughed. In comparison to Kellan Lutz though, Lohan’s comment about WANTING to win an Oscar seems less offensive. Because he isn’t just saying he’d LIKE to win one, he’s PREDICTING that he WILL WIN ONE. Full Story

The Jessica that Jessica wants to be

Here’s Jessica Biel last night at the premiere of Total Recall. It’s what I call aspirational dressing. And, curiously, her sartorial approach mirrors her professional one. The Jessica that Jessica wants to be and the Jessica that Jessica actually is, they are not the same. What you see here, this dress and the shoes and the accessories, while certainly a beautiful idea, it’s not the right idea for Jessica Biel. Full Story

You want to make yourself feel good after your divorce and f-ck around with a 25 year old little dancer, fine. Me I would have picked someone slighter taller, more attractive, to serve that purpose but your eyes are clearly bugged so...fine, fine on that point too. But don’t give him a career. Full Story

Need some comic relief this Monday morning? You can thank Ashley Greene for it. This item appeared in the NY Post yesterday. I’ve decided to include the entire article for maximum amusement: Greene is really about to be the color of money. Full Story

Beyonce at work...tonight

Beyonce kicks off the first of four performances in Atlantic City tonight. I SO want to be there. Have you seen Beyonce perform live? I’ll say this: if you’re not interested in the experience, you can’t call yourself a student of pop culture. There are only a few entertainers of this calibre that come along in a generation. Full Story

I have not bothered to learn the reason P Diddy is here in Cannes. All I know is that he thinks he’s still the sh-t. As evidenced by his behaviour last night on the carpet at the Killing Them Softly premiere. The festival assigns staff to manage the arrivals. Those who are expected to pose for photographers are gathered at the base of runway, facing the steps, to wait for instruction on when to proceed. Full Story

This seems to be the thesis of the Vogue profile on Scarlett Johansson. She covers the new issue. More on the article in a minute. First the photos:It’s Mario Testino so, you know, meh. HOWEVER...Her shots with Mark Ruffalo are beautiful. Particularly that smirk on her face. You see that smirk? That’s the Scarjo you know. Full Story
