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

It's my birthday tomorrow. And look at my gift to you! New photos of Benedict Cumberbatch on set of the BBC2 production of The Hollow Crown: The War of the Roses. Sarah always talks about his voice. Cumberbatch fans love the voice. And now the voice is doing Shakespeare. With his hair longer and wavy and wet. Full Story

It was announced last month that Johnny Depp’s Mortdecai would be released in February – click here for a refresher. And then the trailer came out and, as Sarah pointed out, it made sense why they’d want to bury it there. Mortdecai looks like sh-t. Full Story

Handsome Jake eats alone

Jake Gyllenhaal looked very handsome shooting a new film called Demolition at JFK airport in New York today. Jakey plays an investment banker so, I imagine, the wardrobe calls for no thick facial hair and really good clothes: a beautiful sweater, great pants, good shoes… Mostly though, I just like staring at his face. Full Story

Brange is in Malta shooting By The Sea. They took four of the kids bowling on the weekend. Maddox and Pax evidently stayed back because they have their own schedules. The younger ones still want to hang with mom and dad. The younger ones aren’t embarrassed yet by dad’s orange hat? As you know, the Jolie wrote By The Sea, is directing, and also stars. Full Story
