A new Mockingjay Part 1 teaser was released yesterday featuring just Jennifer Lawrence, returning home to District 12 to survey the damage, under manipulation by Plutarch Heavensbee to fight for the rebel forces. This was one of the strongest elements of The Hunger Games series – even the “good guys” were assholes.
Five weeks now until Mockingjay opens. Five weeks until everyone at the box office gets the f-ck out of the way of Jennifer Lawrence, Hollywood’s reigning Most Popular on an impressive 2+ year run, so far immune to the inevitable onset of actress backlash, even after getting hacked. How? Anne Hathaway probably wants to know. Part of it is that Lawrence isn’t papped day after day after day. She can go undercover for long weeks at a time. Read Full Intro

Prince Harry attended the 100 Women in Hedge Funds Gala tonight in London in support of WellChild. This just a week after it was reported that he was making out with a blonde at a pub. According to the UK Sun, Harry was out with friends for dinner and at some point in the night, he and the blonde – who was a part of their group – started “passionately kissing”. Full Story

Um. Yeah. I linked to one of these shots of Jamie Dornan in the November issue of British VOGUE yesterday. And I just saw a few more of them. Really, really, REALLY good photo shoot. The first image I attached? Sh-t, when I first looked at it I couldn’t breathe. But he doesn’t always do it for me. Full Story

The trailer for Ron Howard’s In The Heart Of The Sea was released earlier today. Convenient! Because I was wondering how I would use these new Chris Hemsworth photos – he was papped at LAX yesterday and he’s the star of the film. It’s based on a true story, the incident that inspired Moby Dick, of a group of men out in the water on their boat and they’re attacked by the Godzilla of whales. Full Story
I have officially hit the halfway point of the Chicago International Film Festival. It is October 16th, and between the festival and squeezing in some commercial releases to meet writing commitments, I’ve seen sixteen movies so far this month. I have fifteen left to go, including four double-headers. Full Story
I can’t believe it took me this long to figure out what Beyonce’s new hair was reminding me of. Vickie! Realty Bites! It’s one of my favourite movies. And it’s not just the short blunt thick bangs. It’s also Vickie’s style. Vickie dressed like a 1950s housewife took a bath in grunge. Full Story

Kind of. Yesterday news broke that Neil Patrick Harris will host the Oscars on February 22, 2015. This is very exciting—NPH is a born entertainer and he’s a proven host, having done stints on the Tonys and the Emmys. We’ve been clamoring for him to host for years and now it’s FINALLY happening.

I received the cutest email yesterday from a reader, S, who wrote: Lainey, My husband is going to have to send you thank you cases of Miraval Rosé for posting that behind the scenes video because I am so primed to bang his brains out when he get home from work. That f-cker is not going to make it past the foyer! Hugs & Rubs Right? Brad Pitt in DETAILS. Full Story

Amal Alamuddin Clooney has been in Greece the last few days consulting on the return of the Parthenon Marbles. The official visit concluded yesterday with a press conference.

I can’t stop listening to Taylor Swift’s new song Out Of The Woods. And it’s not even a hate-listen. It’s a want-listen. And I love the lyrics. For me, it’s this line:
“Like we stood a chance”
Maybe it’s because I’m so 80s.
Maybe because almost everyone I’ve ever dated was heinous. And I should have asked myself more often whether or not we were out of the woods. No, no, I should never have gotten INTO the woods.
Anyway, I’m sorry. It feels like I’ve done something wrong, paying $1.29 for the song. I feel like I’ve disappointed you. But still, I can’t stop listening. Is that meta in some way?
Shia LaBeouf isn’t alone. He’s made it very clear that Brad Pitt is the “top dog”, as he described it on Kimmel the other day, the John Wayne of Fury, the one you sit down and shut up around…as you gaze adoringly. This is a Man Crush. Shia has one. DETAILS apparently has one too. Full Story
