She was already halfway there. Some people just have that “living cartoon” look, like they were drawn by Disney animators then stumbled out of Cool World on accident. Emma Stone has that look and Tom Hiddleston too—he’s a live-action Disney prince if ever there was one. Emma Watson also looks like a live-action Disney character, and it’s now official as she’s been cast in Disney’s live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast. Full Story

Human cartoon Johnny Depp has had a bad run over the last few years. He's starred in a string of flops ranging from the ill-advised The Tourist to 2013's embarrassing Lone Ranger and now the disastrous Mortdecai, and he has scarfed his way out of the affections of many fans, myself included. Full Story

You know how that meadow is a big f-cking deal to Twi-Hards? Well f-ck off Twi-Hards, because Tom Cruise meadowed first! So you’ve heard about Going Clear? The new HBO Scientology documentary that premiered at Sundance? Word is HBO assembled a team of 160 lawyers to cover their asses so that they could go ahead and make this movie. Full Story

Mortdecai review

Last week I was pleasantly surprised when Paddington turned out to be a sweet, adorable film. This week, after seeing Mortdecai, I was not similarly surprised. Because it was not good. Done in the style of pre-war screwball capers, Mortdecai is about Charlie Mortdecai (human cartoon Johnny Depp), an insufferable English aristocrat and art dealer of questionable ethics. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Tonight! The Boy Next Door!

Sarah was all pissy about it yesterday when we were texting. Her words: “It is sh-t”.

Yeah. So?

Joanna saw it last night at an advance screening. Her review will be posted later but she emailed me this morning with the following:

“You're going to LOVE IT. It's ridiculous. Why don't they make movies like this anymore???? The sex is GREAT, the movie's not... but it's bad on purpose. Would still recommend. ... Just expect to roll your eyes and laugh. A lot.”

I will. I know I will. I can’t wait.

As you’ve seen, JLO’s been all over the place this week hustling her movie. Last night, it was Watch What Happens Live. She was on the couch while Ryan Guzman got stuck behind the bar.  Read Full Intro

Speaking of sex at the movies. Lainey’s all het up for The Boy Next Door, I’m just relieved I don’t have to sit through it. No amount of top-notch fake f*cking can make up for a poorly made movie, sorry. Like I told Lainey last night, all commercials for The Boy Next Door make me want to do is watch Out of Sight. Full Story

The Boy Next Door review

The Boy Next Door is Jennifer Lopez’s first film in two years. With more laughs and (way) more steam than in the trailer, you should give it a shot even though its great foreplay and racy sex don’t result in satisfying finish. Still, where else would you hear lines like, "Dude, you've got to read The Iliad" coming from a man who's "nearly 20"? JLO plays Claire, a separated high school classics teacher and mom to a sensitive teenage boy who's allergic to bees. Full Story

Jude Law stepped out last night at the NY premiere of Black Sea. He looks good. Very handsome. Just… I can’t figure out what’s going on with his hair. Like, there’s so much of it… but not that much of it… you know what I mean? Look at the length of that ringlet! If you stretched it out, how long would it be? Is that a compensation? I don’t understand. Full Story

Last week we learned that Tom Hardy had dropped out of Warner Brothers’ Suicide Squad, the villain team-up movie, and that they were going after Jake Gyllenhaal as his replacement. Well, Jake G has passed, too. So the Suicide Squad remains one member short with production set to begin in April. Full Story

Ewan McGregor was the best last night at the Mortdecai premiere. A bow tie and a leather jacket? Not everyone. But definitely, definitely Ewan. Forever Ewan. Especially true when he’s with Johnny Depp. There’s flair the way Ewan delivers it. And then there’s whatever it is that Johnny Depp is trying to give us. Full Story

After spending the weekend in Mexico – click here to see those pictures – Gwyneth Paltrow showed up in Lanvin at the Hollywood premiere of Mortdecai alongside the entire cast. This dress only works from the back. And I get it, she has an awesome back. Full Story

Here are new photos of Chris Evans walking around in a tight shirt. Enjoy. That could be the sum total of this post. But there’s a woman in frame with him, and I’ve been getting emails about a mystery woman sighting last week, so I leave it to you eagle-eyed nerds to decide if the woman in these photos, ID’ed as actress Lindsay McKeon, is the same as the mystery woman from last week. Full Story

Check out a super fit Anne Hathaway at the premiere of Song One in New York last night. Love everything about this look. The perfectly tailored white suit. The sheer underneath. The pumps. Her makeup. Especially the eye makeup. Mostly though… There’s a glow, non? I’m seeing a really, really pretty glow. Full Story
