Lately there’s been a surge in my Elvis obsession. When I was a teenager I used to obsess over pictures of Lisa Marie Presley. Elvis was SO strong in her face. It’s the eyes. Elvis had Gladys’s eyes (his mother) and Lisa Marie has those eyes. And Riley Keough has those eyes. Riley was at the Mad Max: Fury Road premiere last night in Hollywood. Full Story

Chris Hemsworth’s Vacation dick

Sarah Posted by Sarah at May 8, 2015 15:59:43 May 8, 2015 15:59:43

Remember the National Lampoon’s Vacation movies? You know, the two terrible ones no one talks about, and then the first one that most people like and the Christmas one that everyone likes? Well there’s a new one. Chevy Chase is still around as the patriarch of the perpetually doomed Griswold family, but now the role of “manically determined to have fun at all costs father” is being played by Ed Helms as the grown up Rusty Griswold. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

A trailer for the upcoming Ricki and The Flash was released yesterday starring Meryl Streep as a rock star. Which basically means Meryl Streep will be nominated for more. And she totally should be. As usual, she’s amazing. But so is Audra McDonald. And that’s another bonus. Another? Written by Diablo Cody. Oh and… Rick Springfield. Ha.

It’s a little…what’s the word?... schmaltzy, for sure. But Meryl’s got what looks like an American flag tattooed on her back. I feel like that might make up for the schmaltz. The movie comes out August 7th which hasn’t traditionally been the strongest month for releases. But in recent years, we’ve seen some winners emerging from August. So let’s not yet hold August against Ricki. The hair-combs at the back of her head on the other hand…

Now those can stay in the 80s.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Get hard for Gwendoline Christie in Star Wars

If you still need a reason to get on board with New New Star Wars, let it be Game of Thrones’ Gwendoline Christie as the villain, Captain Phasma. As part of their Star Wars edition, Vanity Fair is still rolling out new information on Episode VII—I still can’t bring myself to call it The Force Awakens. Full Story

US Weekly reports exclusively that Elizabeth Olsen and Tom Hiddleston have been hooking up. It’s an Avengers romance! It’s a Marvel love connection! Only it wasn’t when they were playing superheroes. Hiddleston and Olsen worked together on the Hank Williams biopic I Saw The Light. Full Story

Joss Whedon quits Twitter, world implodes

On Monday, Joss Whedon quit Twitter. I assumed it was because with Avengers: Age of Ultron open in all the theaters everywhere, he was finally done promoting it and so he deleted his Twitter page, which was started two years ago to promote a movie. I didn’t think much of it at first, but by the end of the day the internet was going nuts, saying that Whedon didn’t quit, he was run out of electrical town on rails by a horde of rage-feminists who were mad at him for something about the Black Widow. Full Story

And now…maybe the opposite of every sentiment expressed in the Anna Kendrick/Elizabeth Banks post… But hey, Jada Pinkett Smith is the boss lady of the strippers, OK? And she’s GOOD at it! The new Magic Mike XXL trailer. When the teaser came out, I wrote that Full Story

PLEASE be Captain Britain

Yesterday Marvel announced yet another person to add to the pile of people already appearing in Captain America: Civil War, and it’s Sherlock star Martin Freeman in an undisclosed role. Everyone’s making dog pile jokes and wondering how there could possibly be any time for Captain America with so many co-stars, but let’s be real. Full Story

I’ve always said Jeremy Renner is good for gossip, and he is certainly giving us something to talk about recently. The Avengers: Age of Ultron press tour was famously peppy, and during an interview Renner and Chris Evans stepped in a pile of internet dog sh*t when they called Black Widow a “slut Full Story
