Brad Pitt really wants you to see Fury. The small details are what get me initially. Like how they Scotch tape the microphones on this show. It’s a slow build. The first two minutes aren’t all that exciting. But then. Zach Galifianakis goes for it. I mean, sure, it’s not hard to go for it when both of you are in on it. Full Story

George Clooney was out in Studio City yesterday, supposedly visiting his chiropractor. While wearing his only t-shirt. Always this t-shirt. Because he owns the company. And the company announced that it’s releasing a new variant yesterday. “We are extremely excited and proud to add our añejo after resting it to perfection in our barrels in Jalisco, Mexico. Full Story

Matthew McConaughey received the American Cinematheque Award last night in Hollywood and it was a strong turnout. The timing is great too. Not only because he’s winning everything (but the Emmy), but also because Interstellar comes out soon, one of most highly anticipated films of the year. Of over a year. Full Story

TMZ is reporting that Jennifer Lopez is working on a Vegas deal. Apparently she’s negotiating with The Axis at Planet Hollywood for 72 shows over 24 weeks that would pay her $350K each time. It’s similar to Britney. Except, well, didn’t you think that JLO had a lot more going on than Britney? For Britney, the Vegas thing makes sense, because …you know. Full Story

A couple of weeks ago they mutually decided to part ways. It was over before the New York Film Festival”. Full Story

Ryan Reynolds was also honoured at Canada’s Walk of Fame on Saturday in Toronto. His mother was with him at the ceremony. I quite like the blue shirt and the bow tie. Very handsome. Everyone was wondering whether or not Blake Lively would accompany him to the event. She did not. She stayed back in New York and was papped a few times, out shopping and hanging out with Amber Tamblyn. Full Story

Eddie Redmayne was front row at the Alexander Wang H&M Collection launch in New York last night. (Sasha was there too, covering it for etalk. I was jealous. Wang is… goddamn, he is something to look at. The clothes, sure. But his FACE!) If I’m a designer, Eddie Redmayne is at the top of the list of male celebrities I’d want to be there. 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
