You remember when Reese Witherspoon was working the award show circuit while campaigning for an Oscar for her performance in Walk The Line? During her acceptance speeches, her southern accent would, you know, just slip out inadvertently. My ass. That was a well-run strategy that ended with a Best Actress. Full Story

At best, the read on January Jones was “cold”. At worst, if you believe Zach Galifianakis, we’re supposed to “forget about (her) in a few years". So…she’s definitely not Hollywood’s Miss Congeniality. Full Story

It’s been almost a month since Alec Baldwin “retired” from public life (click here for a refresher), so you knew he was going to pop up again soon. He can’t help himself. It’s part of his deranged charm. This week, Baldwin’s wife Hilaria posted a photo of herself on Instagram Full Story

NBC announced yesterday that Chris Martin, Coldplay’s frontman and husband of Gwyneth Paltrow will be joining The Voice as an advisor to the competitors and the judges. I don’t watch The Voice, not even one episode. I’m told however that it’s the best of all the talent searches. Full Story

Emma Watson's been wearing a bold lip consistently for months. And she continues to wear a bold lip through the early part of the press tour for Noah, here in Madrid for the premiere last night. I'm obsessed with this outfit. But I'm more obsessed with her face. She looks amazing with hair swept to the side (I need that hair accessory!) and, yes, that bold lip. Full Story

Wow. Emma Watson looked spectacular last night at the Berlin premiere of Noah. It’s just a black dress with an interesting back. It’s not the greatest black dress I’ve ever seen. And from certain angles, the material seems kinda prommy. But none of that matters because of the styling. Full Story

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux stepped out together in New York last night holding hands. So, now that breakup speculation is out of the way, it’s time to wonder – yet again – if she’s pregnant. Because she wore a loose sweater and her bag was in front of her midsection. Full Story

Have you seen Taylor Swift’s FYC video for the Academy of Country Music Awards? I’ve attached below. It’s supposed to be cheeky and jokey and well, apart from the cat, which is kinda cute, I guess, if you’re a cat person, to me, hokey is more the word. Holy sh-t there were a lot of commas in that sentence. Full Story

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux stepped out together in New York yesterday and this is supposed to be a big deal because they hadn’t been papped as a couple for a while, leading to speculation that it was over. There were also those who were convinced of it when Aniston didn’t join Theroux while he was mourning Philip Seymour Hoffman but that, to me, was more about not wanting to be the asshole with all the attention at the wrong time. Full Story

Matthew McConaughey was photographed heading to a meeting yesterday. Almost all the experts are predicting he’ll take Best Actor on Sunday night. He has a lot going for him. It’s been a 6 month long campaign and he’s played every step perfectly. And, conveniently, he’s also doing great work on True Detective. Full Story

There are two ways you can do it: You can be stone-faced and not answer questions, so that the world can see that your husband sucks. Or you can smile through it, so that the world can see that your husband sucks, and how much better off you are for it that you’ve left. Paula Patton chose option #2. Full Story

Yes we are still talking about Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard – ironic considering that they want more privacy, no? Kristen is still aggressively tweeting media outlets with the #pedorazzi hashtag, because I guess encouraging your followers to incessantly tweet accounts that aren’t engaging back isn’t a form of pestering. Full Story
