A new trailer for the Peter Pan prequel no one asked for, Pan, is out and goddamn this movie looks terrible. After the first trailer, Lainey had some concerns, beginning with Hugh Jackman’s wig line. We now have much bigger problems than that, beginning with—when in the hell did Peter Pan become a special snowflake of destiny? Peter Pan is a twat. Full Story

Jake Gyllenhaal was also at the amfAR gala last night and spent some time hanging out with Zoe Kravitz. I’m about to put Zoe Kravitz on my Five List. Am obsessed with her. She’s a charismatic performer. Even though she’s active on social media, she still manages to maintain a distance, a mystery, remaining unknowable. Full Story

Continuing the trend of turning their classic cartoons into live action spectacles, Disney announced that the next property to get the Real Boy treatment will be a kind of Peter Pan spin-off centered on Tinker Bell. The movie is called Tink and it will star AMERICAN CITIZEN Reese Witherspoon as the saucy fairy sidekick of Peter Pan. Full Story

Like he would miss the amfAR gala, right? Because he's so charitable. And also because models. They're everywhere in Cannes but at the fundraisers they're especially important because the old rich dudes feel more generous when they're around. It's a big dick-off, all of them throwing their money around like it's attached to very large penises. Full Story
It was announced yesterday that Mindy Kaling and B.J. Novak will be paid 7.5 million dollars for a book that explores the details of their complicated, untraditional relationship. Seven Point Five MILLION dollars. Yes, publishing gives big advances to celebrity authors who are likely to sell well, and Kaling’s first memoir did well and to be honest, was maybe my favourite of the comedy memoirs that came out in the past few years – certainly the best since Bossypants.

Marion Cotillard and Michael Fassbender looked like they were having a great time together last night at the amfAR gala in Cannes ahead of the premiere of Macbeth at the festival, one of the most highly anticipated films in competition. Two new clips have just been released showing Fassbender’s Macbeth at his coronation, looking well on his way to derangement, and then later in battle with some curious directing decisions, at least to me.

As part of his cover feature in June’s GQ, Chris Pratt filmed a little comedy segment for the internet in which he gives acting lessons, except he got hammered and started the bit by saying he’s too drunk to do the bit. He then proceeds to do the bit while being obviously three sheets to the wind. Full Story

If you hate Gwyneth Paltrow, and so many of you do (which I’ll never understand because what would gossip be with only Kate Middletons and no Gwyneth Paltrows?), this is your birthday. G appeared last night on the Red Nose Day special on NBC. She was supposed to be like some kind of action hero, jumping down from a helicopter, rolling onto the roof, and arriving on stage on a wire, strapped into a harness…. Full Story
Last week I used Miley Cyrus as an excuse to talk about Brandon Flowers. Have I mentioned that I’m obsessed with Brandon Flowers? Anyway, in that post (click here for a refresher), I gossip-wished Brandon covering Don’t Get Me Wrong for Miley’s next Backyard Session. Well, he performed in London last night. And he covered Don’t Get Me Wrong. But instead of Miley, He.Sang.It.With.Chrissie.Hynde.
I have to restrain myself from watching this too many times because he is so f-cking hot in this video, I might not be able to work. Oh and he also performed it on BBC Radio 2 live at Maida Vale studios. It’s the second embedded video below, start at 19:44. God. He sounds gorgeous.
Anyway, like I said, I have to work. So I have to ignore my Google alerts. But this photo attached first is from his new interview about The Desired Effect with the LA Times – click here to read it. Or, you know, just stare at his face. Which you can also do while watching the new lyric video for I Can Change that was just released yesterday. That’s the third video embedded.
OK. I’m trying. I’m trying to work. Heading back to Toronto today so I’ve worked overnight to prepare most of today’s articles and they’ll be rolled out through the morning. The flight is supposed to have wifi so, hopefully if it’s running, I’ll write the rest from the air.
Have a great weekend!
