Page Six reports today that Johnny Depp is considering breaking up with his long-time agent Tracey Jacobs because all his movies suck and he’s “devastated” that they’ve not been well received. Supposedly he’s thinking about working with Rick Yorn who manages Leonardo DiCaprio, Martin Scorsese, Reese Witherspoon, Scarjo, Justin Timberlake, Cameron Diaz, Jude Law, and more. Full Story

Human cartoon Johnny Depp has had a bad run over the last few years. He's starred in a string of flops ranging from the ill-advised The Tourist to 2013's embarrassing Lone Ranger and now the disastrous Mortdecai, and he has scarfed his way out of the affections of many fans, myself included. Full Story

You know that NYT article I referenced earlier in the Reese Witherspoon post? Click here for a refresher. About how there’s no more risk on the red carpet and everyone is as boring as f-ck? Emma Stone was among those singled out for her willingness to play. Full Story

There was a great article in the New York Times that came out just after the Golden Globes: What Happened to Risk on the Red Carpet? With few exceptions – thank you Emma Stone, again, and again, and again – everything, everyone is boring. Full Story

Brad Pitt stopped in at Sundance this weekend with producing partner Dede Gardner to support their film True Story, starring James Franco. Just me or is Franco’s Artist smug prick-face being restrained in the presence of a bigger movie star? He almost looks sheepish. On Saturday Brad put on his tux to accept his honour at the Producers Guild Awards. Full Story

The DAILY FRONT ROW Fashion Los Angeles Awards last night. I’m doing a few posts about this event because there’s a lot to say. But you’ll note… This is not the Taylor Swift crowd. This is Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Kanye West honouring Jeremy Scott. In the front row. Full Story

Last week we learned that Tom Hardy had dropped out of Warner Brothers’ Suicide Squad, the villain team-up movie, and that they were going after Jake Gyllenhaal as his replacement. Well, Jake G has passed, too. So the Suicide Squad remains one member short with production set to begin in April. Full Story

After 20 years in the business, you wouldn’t think Jennifer Aniston needed media training. But when you’re campaigning for an Oscar, a little update doesn’t hurt. As you know, Jen was working with Oscar consultant Lisa Taback on her campaign. And even though those hopes died last Thursday, the effects of that collaboration are still evident, especially in this new interview with The Hollywood Reporter. Full Story

Here are new photos of Chris Evans walking around in a tight shirt. Enjoy. That could be the sum total of this post. But there’s a woman in frame with him, and I’ve been getting emails about a mystery woman sighting last week, so I leave it to you eagle-eyed nerds to decide if the woman in these photos, ID’ed as actress Lindsay McKeon, is the same as the mystery woman from last week. Full Story

Dakota Johnson covers the new issue of VOGUE in anticipation of Fifty Shades Of Grey’s February release. It will be one of many interviews and photos we see of her, but this is certainly a showpiece of her promotional push. I mean, it’s VOGUE, right? Before we get into the interview, let’s talk about Dakota Johnson getting a VOGUE cover to promote a film that no one has seen, based on a terrible book that almost everyone has read. Full Story

I feel like it’s one of Jamie Dornan’s key messages: you will not see his dick in Fifty Shades Of Grey. Dornan covers the latest issue of Variety in advance of the film’s February 13 release. Just 3 weeks away now. And, as I’ve been telling you, almost to the point of creepiness now, I can’t wait. Full Story

Kristen Stewart is still doing some promotion for Still Alice, which has opened in a few more theaters on the back of Julianne Moore’s Oscar nomination (it’s doing pretty well in the specialty market, too). She gave an interview to Yahoo to support the movie and she said some really nice things about Moore—whom she’s known personally for years—and the experience of working with actresses like Moore and Juliette Binoche, and if you’re a KStew fan it’s a nice read. Full Story
