The early report was that Brad Pitt was supposed to join Angelina Jolie at the Vatican for a screening of Unbroken. US Weekly says that due to a last minute change in plans, he was unable to come. But there was a photo opportunity. And here she is, with Pope Francis, who invited her to show her movie for a Vatican audience. Full Story

Action movie star, that is. The People’s Choice Awards, arguably the most meaningless of award shows, was last night and Chris Evans walked away with one of those dildo-looking trophies for being everyone’s favorite action star. He attended the awards dressed like that hot substitute teacher you fantasized about in high school (every school has one), and then he won the internet for the night by helping Betty White up to the stage. Full Story

Jamie Dornan arrived at LAX yesterday. LA is where they need to be this week, the actors, the industry. Even if you’re not going to the Globes, you want to be at the parties, at the luncheons, wherever you can get in, for face time, to network, build those connections, set up that next job. Like, I don’t have access to Dornan’s agenda or anything but it shouldn’t surprise anyone that he’d be there. Full Story

Last month, leaked emails from the Sony Hack revealed that Screen Gems’ studio boss Clint Culpeper thinks comedian Kevin Hart is a “whore”  because he wanted more money to promote a project on Twitter, considering that to be outside the normal press duties for promoting a movie. Full Story

Post-divorce, Marvel’s Ant-Man looks GREAT

Sarah Posted by Sarah at January 7, 2015 14:15:17 January 7, 2015 14:15:17

After a bitter, public divorce from director Edgar Wright in May of 2014, Marvel’s Ant-Man started working out, got a new haircut, and bought a new wardrobe, and now it’s having athletic revenge sex with multiple flexible partners. In the wake of Wright’s messy exit, most people thought Ant-Man was down for the count, washed-up and directionless, but Ant-Man is here to tell you that is doing just fine, thank you, and have you met Aldo? Aldo’s a yoga instructor. Full Story

Oh yeah, Jamie Dornan

Amid all the award season strategising and divorces and hookups and weddings etc, I totally forgot. We’re just a month out from the release of the Fifty Shades Of Grey movie. And it’s supposed to be an EVENT. I want it to be an event. Even though I hated the book and its sh-tty writing, I want to go to the theatre and get horny. Full Story

There’s something to be said for taking your time, and picking your fights – especially in the fame game. As Lainey wrote yesterday, Rosamund Pike’s been selective with her Gone Girl campaign tour and here she is on the cover of the new issue of Vanity Fair Full Story

Anne Hathaway was on Kimmel last night promoting Song One. The film comes out on January 23 in theatres and VOD. I’ve attached the trailer below. Her love interest is Johnny Flynn. God he is hot. For a little movie like this, as you’d expect, it’s on Anne, an Oscar winner, a proper A list actor, to push it. Full Story
