Sarah and I were exchanging emails the other night about Star Wars after the trailer dropped and the internet got broken because people were trying to buy advance tickets. She was saying how Star Wars is going to basically kill everything else at the box office at Christmas and that there’s no point in counter-programming because, in her words, “I don't think counter programming is going to work when the movie you're programming against is one literally EVERYONE wants to see”. Full Story

Leonardo DiCaprio is already being considered a frontrunner for Best Actor Oscar even though The Revenant is still two months from release. And while he would never want you to think that he really, really, really wants it, nor would he want you to see that he’ll campaign as much as he can to get it… you know, we know. Full Story

Was just talking about Eddie Redmayne in the Brie Larson post earlier. And here he is. Well, here he was a couple of weeks ago (these photos are from September 26 but for some reason just released now) in London with his wife Hannah apparently house hunting. If they find something I’m not sure they’re really going to be able to spend all that much time there until next year. Full Story

I wrote about Jake Gyllenhaal’s height investigation on Starlee Kine’s Mystery Show back in June. Click here for a refresher. He was soooo f-cking cute on that phone call. It was the giggling, it was playfulness, it was practically phone sex in my mind. Full Story

Leonardo DiCaprio spent the weekend in New York. On Sunday he was papped walking down the street with current bonafide, Kelly Rohrbach. He made no attempt to cover his face. He didn’t run around looking for a trash bin to jump into to avoid being photographed. Instead, he just kept walking with his turned out feet and his hippy gait (he’s a hip-swinger), and holding her hand, smiling. Full Story

Leonardo DiCaprio and his current bonafide, Kelly Rohrbach, were papped at the Malibu fair on Sunday. He must not have known because otherwise, he’d be walking around with a trash bag over his head. Oscar the Grouch, but way less cute…now. According to the photographer who was there, Leo and Kelly were holding hands and kissing as they went on rides together. Full Story
