Hollywood is suddenly obsessed with Hank Williams. It probably has a lot to do with the prolonged fight over the Hank Senior song catalog ending in 2011, or that the Hank Williams Estate, thus resolved, signed a huge licensing deal just last year. At any rate, first there was Tom Hiddleston Full Story

Matt Damon is dusting off his Jason Bourne hat

Sarah Posted by Sarah at September 16, 2014 13:38:43 September 16, 2014 13:38:43

Once upon a time, Matt Damon went in hard against Bourne trilogy screenwriter Tony Gilroy. For a couple years he trash-talked Gilroy, taking no pains to hide his animosity, and said he’d never do another Bourne movie so long as Gilroy was involved. Full Story

“It’s the things we love most that destroy us”

Man, to borrow from Mimi, that is bleak. I do love fried food though. Here it is – a full length trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1. War. Betrayal. Peeta the puppet. Katniss, as always, is torn. Is there a place for morality between obligation and responsibility? Will Chris Martin be on the soundtrack? Sorry. Full Story

Brange’s post-wedding unhappiness

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 15, 2014 19:56:53 September 15, 2014 19:56:53

Brange is in Malta shooting a movie called By The Sea. Angelina wrote it. She’s directing and producing. Brad is also producing. They play a married couple in crisis. There’s already been a lot of talk about how ironic the timing is. I’ve already talked about how I just want them to go at it Mr & Mrs Smith styles again. Full Story

Keira Knightley, one of the most interesting stars of the year. She charmed up a storm in Begin Again, and will soon chase her second Oscar nomination for the over-hyped The Imitation Game, but makes her biggest star turn as an American twentysomething in crisis in Laggies. Knightley's Megan feels like a prisoner in her own life. Full Story

Over-medicated, "bitchy," and sans-makeup: it's Jennifer Aniston like you've never seen her before. In Cake, Aniston plays Claire, a wealthy L.A. woman struggling with the loss of her son. She soon joins a chronic pain support group, and becomes obsessed with the suicide of a cheery woman named Nina (Anna Kendrick), and the life she left behind. Full Story

I actually emailed Lainey about Playing It Cool (formerly known as A Many Splintered Thing) a few months ago when the official synopsis came out, because this is one of the most amazing synopses I’ve seen in recent memory. Here it is: “The story of a young man disillusioned by love who meets a breathtaking young woman at a charity dinner by pretending to be a philanthropist. Full Story

That was me before a headline whore. Brange and children are in Malta working on By The Sea. On the weekend they spent time on a boat. As you can see, the Jolie wore swim shorts. I don’t think I’ve ever seen her like this before. So, there’s the headline explanation. But the other title could have been: Brad Pitt or Sean Penn? Because at first quick glance, I thought it might have been Sean Penn. Full Story

Remember Ryan Reynolds, the movie star? The star of The Green Lantern, R.I.P.D., and The Change Up? What about Buried and Adventureland? Torn between his cash-in commercial gambits and his independent spirits, Reynolds' rocky road to the top of the A-list continues in The Voices, the ultimate B-movie. Full Story

My Obsession! Two in a row! For the second straight night, Sam and Aaron Taylor-Johnson were at Chiltern in London. What a great way to end a long ass week. This time they were more dressed up. It was a pre-Fashion Week party. Also there – Jamie Dornan aka Christian Grey. So sort of like a Fifty Shades reunion. Full Story
