One of the things I’m pretty sure is a universal experience of children of immigrants is you hear all of the stories of how it was, back home. How different it is here. And the same way Canadians have a running tally of all famous people who are Canadian and will tell you at the drop of a hat, any time there’s someone vaguely of your parents’ country of origin in the news or entertainment, you get a text or a call or a ‘have you read…?’ So I’m going to have to endure my mother’s smug ‘I TOLD you about Colm Toíbín’ because Saoirse Ronan is starring in Brooklyn based on his book and I might want to watch it over and over and over. Full Story

Check out Sienna Miller in a white jumpsuit at Wimbledon today for the men’s semi-final. You remember the other day when I was fighting for the right of the middle part? Sienna Miller in a middle part. Forever. Conveniently I was just namechecking Sienna in a post this morning. The Ben Affleck post – click here Full Story

The last time we saw the new Ghostbusters they were dressed in civilian clothes. Thanks to more on location filming this week, we now have photos of the whole team in their new ghostbusting suits. Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon are in the familiar jumpsuits, but sporting a modified look with a seventies era style orange stripe. Full Story

Southpaw may look like a rental, but you should see it in theatres. Yes, it relies way too heavily on clichés, but seeing Jake Gyllenhaal transform into Billy Hope is worth the price of admission. It’s joy to see Rachel McAdams in this sexy, supportive part, too. But this is a role only Jake could play. Full Story

It’s so much fun to watch movie stars be movie stars. It’s electric. That’s the best way to describe what it felt like at the Southpaw premiere in Toronto last night with Rachel McAdams and Jake Gyllenhaal. The biggest takeaway? Not only is the movie great, but after seeing them together in person… it’s clear their chemistry is real. Full Story

The plan, as I’ve been telling you all along, was to let Batman take over. To give the divorce gossip its due time before crushing it with work talk and superhero excitement. And now we’re seeing the rollout. Warner Bros announced yesterday that Ben Affleck will begin directing Live By Night in November. Full Story

The Mockingjay 2 panel just wrapped not too long ago at Comic-Con. The big 3 were all there – Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth. But, really, the story is Katniss. Always Katniss. Always JLaw. According to the tweets I’ve been reading, she really delivered for the fans. Full Story

Robert Pattinson is cold porridge

A while back a request came in for a career prospectus on Robert Pattinson, which was completely baffling because, despite being the human equivalent of a bowl of cold porridge—the English dude version of Oatmeal Amanda Seyfried, if you will—he’s working consistently and with very good filmmakers. Full Story

Jamie Dornan was in Prague today promoting Anthropoid. He looks GOOD. I quite like this shot of him sticking his tongue out. On the subject of tongues… Grey, the book. You read it? Click here if you missed Maria’s review. I’ve stopped at 20%. Full Story

Time Bandit Paul Rudd and some ants in London

Paul Rudd is stealing time. That is the only explanation. I have considered every possible option for how he has not aged in the last twenty years, and I have deduced that Paul Rudd is a time bandit. It’s the only thing that makes sense. He can’t be a vampire because he is frequently seen in daylight, and I don’t think there’s enough unicorn blood in the world to sustain someone for twenty years, which leaves the option that Paul Rudd is an extra-dimensional being who consumes earth time like water. Full Story

So I went to see Magic Mike XXL last night with Melissa, Cynthia, and Traci from The Social. We went to one of those theatres that has bar service. Like they take your drinks and food order in your seats (which are wider and reclining). I’m telling you this to get to the part where we shared deep fried pickles, chicken tenders, burgers, and oh yeah, two bottles of wine – an important detail as it probably had to do with how much fun I had. Full Story
