That is a truly bizarre sentence to write. The last time Jake G had a movie in theaters was nearly eighteen months ago, last spring’s Source Code. Since then, he’s kept a relatively low profile as he recalibrates after his Movie Star dreams died a slow, inexorable death in 2010. For reasons I will never understand, you people wouldn’t let him be a Movie Star (I say “you people” because I fully supported him as a blockbuster star and will always slightly resent everyone else for pushing Jake G aside in favor of Channing Tatum), so he has gone back to his roots in character-driven indies. Full Story

But first Jon Stewart. Because ... what a kind, kind man. And in a way that is so....not Jay Leno, right? You can have compassion and still be cool. And also uncompromising. Few personalities can manage to lure the Twi-Hard Nation without having to offer up their pride balls in the process. It’s another reason to love Jon Stewart. Full Story

It's not just that we won't release them all from the Eternal Triangle, it's that they themselves can't get over it either. On the weekend that Brange was rumoured to marry in France - didn't happen - Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux announced their engagement. Coincidence or conspiracy?

Liberty Ross, the betrayed wife of Rupert Sanders, who was caught cheating with Kristen Stewart, has been seen this week in LA on several occasions, stomping around in very high heels, and not wearing a ring. Why not? Why would the loving mother of two children with a philandering pig of a husband have to hide or walk around all mopey in sweat pants feeling bloated and sorry for herself? Oh look, Liberty Ross knows about narratives too. Full Story

Katie Holmes was photographed in New York yesterday. Tom Cruise took Suri to Disney World so she's on her own in the city.  She looks like a college student, non? It's yet another side of the new single Katie. She takes cabs. Her hair is long and often unbrushed. She's no longer expected to be groomed in the likeness of a Mrs Cruise. Full Story
