Leo’s reaction to Lady Gaga’s arm bump is now the 5th most viewed Vine ever. People love it, can’t get enough of it. It has spurred ridiculous stories of feuds and after-party confrontations (which high level gossips such as yourselves know are BS). Even though some (AHEM, Lainey) want to cast Leo as the evil Prom King, there was a moment with another big winner that passed quickly, save for trade media and Twitter. Full Story

Sean Penn spoke to Charlie Rose last night for an interview that will air more extensively on 60 Minutes and on Charlie’s show on PBS.

Actually, that’s an incomplete title. The complete title should be: Jared Leto vs TMZ over Taylor Swift How much do you think Taylor loves that Jared Leto is getting legal with TMZ because of her? Jared is insisting that it’s more about “morality” but, come on, isn’t this about her? Or, more specifically, what he said about her? A quick recap: TMZ posted a video earlier this week of Jared in a studio judgy-momming Taylor’s music. Full Story

And I don’t mean Gorillaz because they would never let themselves be part of something so earnestly CRINGE. They made a big f-cking deal of the fact that Coldplay hasn’t performed at the AMAs in 7 years. It’s gross enough that every time I listen to this song I have to think about whether or not Chris Martin is singing about how Jennifer Lawrence flipped on the “on” switch for his dick, and the “magic” that took over him when he was inside of her. Full Story

Continuing the theme of “it’s a bad day to be a Marvel marketing flak”, Anthony Mackie, who plays Falcon in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is out promoting Our Brand is Crisis, which means that people are asking him about Marvel. When you’re part of Marvel, all anyone ever asks you about is Marvel. Full Story

I’ve already written about Jeremy Renner today. About how he’s recording an album – click here for a refresher. A lot of people are talking about Jeremy this week because of how he responded to questions about the gender pay gap and Jennifer Lawrence’s essay. Full Story

On Monday night it was Drake. Yesterday it was Jeremy Renner. The man’s grey turtleneck – is it a thing? Jeremy was in New York yesterday to promote a campaign he’s doing with Remy Martin Cognac. (Put a pin in that because we’re coming back to it.) You’ll recall, the Sony leak revealed that on American Hustle, Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams were paid less than Bradley Cooper and Jeremy Renner. Full Story

So… if you’re threatening to sue people for publishing pictures of your penis and violating your privacy (click here for a refresher), should your dad be tweeting about how proud he is of your penis? Jeremy Bieber is Justin Bieber’s father. Full Story

Matt Damon was on The Late Late Show with James Corden last night acting out his career in 8 minutes. They opened with Good Will Hunting which, I mean, I understand, you want to open strong. But I would have moved Bourne up to the top and maybe ended with “apples”, although I’m wondering if it was more a logistical set decision and not editorial because of that sliding glass screen. Full Story

Black Mass premiered at TIFF last night. Sarah’s review is coming up. But first…because it’s Johnny Depp, and there’s been so much drama about Johnny and Amber in Toronto, we’re starting there. As I mentioned in my post yesterday – click here Full Story

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck used to have a show called Project Greenlight, in which they and a panel of filmmakers chose a script and a director and set them loose with a small budget to make a movie. It aired three seasons on Bravo from 2001-2005, and the only movie I remember from it is the hilariously bad horror movie, Feast. Full Story
