They’re making a movie about Aaliyah. It’s a tv movie. On Lifetime. Who’s playing her? Zendaya. I wasn’t happy about this this morning. So I emailed the only person I know who cares about Baby Girl as much as I do: Sasha (who’s in Paris right now). Sasha’s reaction: “This is excellent casting! I pray this is not cheesy as f-ck either way screening party please. Full Story

Cameron Diaz, Jason Segel, and Rob Lowe are in Barcelona to promote Sex Tape. It opens on July 18. This will be Cam’s second release this year. The Other Woman did well. Sex Tape? I’m not sure. Has there been a blockbuster comedy this summer? A Million Ways To Die In The West was supposed to be. Full Story

Joseph Gordon Levitt is in Montreal shooting a film called The Walk, a biopic about Philippe Petit who walked back and forth between the Twin Towers in 1974 on a wire. This explains the costume. It makes him look even littler than he is. I watched Don Jon on TV the other night. Did you enjoy it? The movie, JGL’s directorial debut received good reviews. Full Story

Supporting is the New Lead

A few weeks ago, I emailed Lainey to complain – I do this a lot (mostly about Leo and Aaron Paul). This time was no different. It’s summer. I miss Breaking Bad. I miss it A LOT. Lainey responded with “Orange is the New Black” and yes, it’s great, but it’s not the same, you know? A year after the series finale, and Walter White and Jesse Pinkman are pretty much kicking ass. Full Story

Guardians of the Galaxy: The best idea

Back when Marvel first announced their intention to adapt obscure-even-by-nerd-standards Guardians of the Galaxy and everyone went “What? WHO?” there was some not-so-quiet snickering throughout the industry. The prevailing attitude among rival studios and development teams was, Finally. Full Story

Robert Pattinson is in New York on the morning show circuit to promote The Rover. I quite like his sock choice. Out of Cannes, everyone was saying that his performance in the film is the best of his career. He has a supporting role in both The Rover and Maps To The Stars and seems to be settling nicely into a non-lead position. Full Story

Back when Ben Affleck was named as the new Batman, there was a rumor—that sounded more like wishing, really—that Matt Damon could be on board to play the most laughable of all superheroes, Aquaman. It was the latest in a succession of Aquaman rumors, and if you’re wondering why people keep talking up this guy Full Story

Jolie damed

It’s Dame Angelina now. Queen Elizabeth made Angelina Jolie an honourer Commander of the Most Distinguished Order of St Michael and St George on Friday on a Birthday Honours list that also included Daniel Day-Lewis, Maggie Smith, and Damian Lewis. Some of you complained. And I would agree with you – that she’s a Hollywood star, and an American, and sure she just came off a busy week for the Global Summit To End Sexual Violence In Conflict but there are non-famous heroes who deserve recognition and crabby crabby crabby crabby crabby crabby – but, you know, talk to me when you’re finished bitching about the guy from Homeland. Full Story

Tom Hardy continues to work on Legend in London. It was evidently a wedding scene today, Emily Browning as the bride. She had to pop out for a cigarette during break. I’m not supposed to say this but I love seeing a smoking bride. Because the image is so offensive to some people. Like on my wedding day, in my white dress, when I popped out for a drag, my ma was apoplectic. Full Story

Terrifying what's happening right now. The Visor is having a moment. You know who's been wearing -- or you could say "rocking" -- the visor for years and years and years? You'd know if you've ever been to a Chinese mall. Or played golf. Asian ladies. My ma, the Chinese Squawking Chicken. Full Story
