This is the first shot of Eva Mendes since she gave birth to daughter Esmeralda on September 12. She looks exactly the same. And since we never saw her pregnant – not even one undeniable gratuitous pregnancy shot – it’s almost like it never happened, only TMZ found and released the birth certificate. Full Story

I’m in a TV rut. My DVR went kaput over the summer and when I got a new box, faced with reprogramming dozens of hours of TV, I found that I didn’t like hardly anything I’d been watching. So I ditched a bunch of shows and even still, until Justified comes back in 2015, I’m not really into anything. Full Story

First a reminder: Reese Witherspoon’s husband, Jim Toth, is Matthew McConaughey’s agent. Together, he and McConaughey engineered what’s now known as the McConaissance. Perhaps the same game plan is now in place for Reese. Like McConaughey, what Reese is offering is supposed to be a lot more varied and nuanced than what we saw in How To Legally Blonde A Guy In Ten Days. Full Story

There are a lot of cameos in Avengers: Age of Ultron. I don’t want to get yelled at for spoilers, so I’m not enumerating them here, but if you peruse nerd sites you can easily find out which ones have already been spoiled, and now you can add two more to the list. While giving an interview to the Telegraph, Idris Elba let it drop that he and Tom Hiddleston have cameos in Age of Ultron. Full Story

Cara Delevingne and Selena Gomez were at LACMA together this weekend. Cara’s in a one shoulder cape with darker hair, likely for her upcoming role in Paper Towns which starts shooting right now. She might also be speaking in an American accent because of it. You can hear it in the video below of Cara and Selena speaking to a reporter at the event. Full Story

On Saturday Deadline held “The Contenders” at the Directors Guild of America, a day-long symposium in which every distributor with Oscar hopes presented their award season wares, and many actors and filmmakers showed up to hustle. Most of the actors who showed up have outside chances at best, like newly-minted superhero Chadwick Boseman, who’s got a little buzz going for the James Brown biopic, Get On Up, and Shailene Woodley, who’s hoping to score a Best Actress nomination for The Fault In Our Stars. Full Story

Ryan Gosling cracked a smile yesterday on the set of The Nice Guys in Atlanta. He’s shooting the movie with Russell Crowe, seen here earlier in the week, looking as he always does – no nonsense. I’ve interviewed Crowe and he was lovely – at least to me – but I was terrified. Full Story

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were photographed together on the set of By The Sea for the first time this week. She’s honey-blonde and heavily eye-lined. SO 70s. If you’re of my generation, do you have a shot of your mother in practically the same outfit? And hair? As you can see, at one point, in character, there’s a Brange embrace, except it doesn’t look all that happy because they play a couple growing apart. Full Story

Jake Gyllenhaal is making the rounds, promoting Nightcrawler—a movie I cannot wait to see this weekend—and last night he appeared on The Tonight Show and was his usual charming self. When Jake G is on, he’s on, and very few can top it. Watching him goofing around with Jimmy Fallon is a delight. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Jennifer Aniston stepped out yesterday for lunch after it was reported that her film, Cake, will be released for a week in order to be considered for award season. Many took that to mean that she’s making a push for Oscar and as Joanna pointed out in her post – click here  Read Full Intro
