This Celine sweater dress on Sienna Miller…I can’t. I can’t control my WANT. I would wear it every single day. I would never wear it and get into a water fight, are you f-cked? Then again, it’s because for me, the sweater dress would be a major acquisition. For a celebrity, it’s one of many. Full Story

Gwyneth Paltrow was on Howard Stern this morning. She’s promoting Mortdecai. She’s been promoting Mortdecai even though she doesn’t play Mortdecai. Johnny Depp plays Mortdecai. The movie comes out in a week and he’s basically been missing. So, you know, thanks Johnny Depp. Anyway, Howard Stern is tight with Jennifer Aniston. Full Story

Is it really a remake, though, or just a modern adaptation? Alfred Hitchcock’s classic Strangers on a Train was adapted from a novel by Patricia Highsmith of the same name. The title is most widely known as a Hitchcock movie, but I don’t know if a modern take actually counts as a remake of Hitchcock, or just a modern update on the novel. Full Story

Subtitle: “I sat through this so you don’t have to”. About fifteen minutes into Tak3n—surely the year’s stupidest title—I desperately wanted to walk out. But I don’t walk out of movies on principal, so I white-knuckled it through one of the worst movies I’ve seen in a while, which is saying something because sometimes I seek out bad movies Full Story

Marvel released the second trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron last night and they are doubling down on the creepy renditions of “I’ve Go No Strings”. Put that free Disney songbook to work, dude, but now I will forever be creeped out by Pinocchio. Not that a sentient talking puppet that’s obsessed with other people’s humanity wasn’t already creepy. Full Story

Art of Elysium gala on Saturday. Amber Heard was accepting an award and Johnny Depp came to support her. They made a point of proving to you that they’re not breaking up and not experiencing problems in their relationship by kissing each other with open mouths. Um, OK Johnny, I believe you. Especially when you walk the entire length of the carpet with your “extra tough, I’m a badass” face on. Full Story

Safe to say now that Boyhood is the clear Best Picture frontrunner for the Oscars now, right? The Globes don’t necessarily accurately predict Oscars.
