Anne Hathaway covers UK ELLE in advance of the release of Interstellar, expected to be one of the biggest movies of the season. Um. Sarah emailed me the other telling me it’s over 2 hours and 45 minutes…WHAT??? See that’s going to take an entire day of planning for me. To be able to accommodate an almost 3 hour movie, everything else has to be moved around. Full Story

Jesus Bale is back!

One of my favorite things ever is Jesus Bale, or what happens when Christian Bale gets particularly hirsute. How can you not love this? It cracks me up every time. So I’m really excited to see in the new Exodus: Gods & Guyliner trailer that Jesus Bale is making a comeback, and yes, I did little happy claps to see him once again. Full Story

Brange did not attend the Amal-George wedding this weekend. But every day since they’ve been making headlines. She bought him some crazy expensive watch. Click here for more details. Then PEOPLE ran a feature about their first month of marriage. Full Story

Benedict Cumberbatch gets ahead of the game

Benedict Cumberbatch has a GREAT new interview with TimeOut London in which he talks about both his Oscar chances and the kingmaker grooming him for center stage. The Batch is always an interesting interview for several reasons: 1) He’s 38 and fame came late-ish for him, striking in his mid-thirties after he’d had a chance to fully form—they’re better when it happens that way, as Lainey recently pointed out Full Story

Ben Affleck’s dick and superhero swirl

Ben Affleck has been all over New York promoting Gone Girl, opening this weekend. I was just making plans to see Gone Girl on Friday with my cousin Cat and her husband who’s celebrating a birthday. All depends on how it goes when they cut my lip open and take out my cyst-mole that afternoon. Full Story

Jeremy Renner’s new movie, Kill The Messenger, opens on October 10 (against RDJ’s The Judge—do you think they’re giving each other a hard time about box office competition?), and as such Renner is giving us the hard shill. Kill The Messenger is opening in a crowded October dominated by a lot of flashy titles like Gone Girl and Fury, so he’s got to hustle to draw attention to his movie. Full Story

A quick programming note: there was a major delay on the subway this morning and I had that appointment at the eye clinic (I’m a good candidate for laser eye surgery) and so I’m just trying to catch up between preparing for The Social which goes live in a couple of hours.  Going to hit you up with a few quick posts and photos and then focus on heavier analysis – including George Clooney’s wedding details – later on this afternoon. Full Story

Tom Cruise is working Mission: Impossible 5 in London. No breaks on the weekends, I guess, as he was seen on set yesterday double-fisting a Blackberry and an iPhone/Pod. Me too! So here’s what I was thinking today. List the top movies – universally considered to be Top Movie Stars, male: Denzel Washington, married Will Smith, married Robert Downey Jr, married Brad Pitt, married George Clooney, married – GEORGE CLOONEY IS MARRIED Johnny Depp, engaged Tom Cruise… Tom Cruise…? Single man standing. Full Story

The “unreachable” Brad Pitt…with Shia as his wingman

Brange was not photographed at the Clooney wedding. Some are hoping they were there, just incognito. But you know what? It’s not like they hang out a lot. You see Clooney with Damon, Krasinski, Murray… Since Oceans, you don’t see him with Brad. Their friendship has been overblown… maybe because of wishful thinking. Full Story

Reese Witherspoon is the latest celebrity to be featured in VOGUE’s 73 questions. And she’s letting you see her house. So. Before you rush off and press play, just a few notes… The best part is the backflip. In a skirt! The worst part is her answer about dinner with female senators. Full Story

Rachel McAdams and Mark Ruffalo. They’re shooting a new movie called Spotlight. It’s about The Boston Globe’s coverage of all that sick sh-t those Catholic priests were doing to those kids. Yesterday they were all at Fenway – in my mind the most gorgeous ballpark in the world – shooting scenes with Roger Sterling. Full Story
