Have you seen Spring Breakers yet? I put it on my iPad for my flight from Vancouver to Toronto the other day. Not really the best idea. Watching it on one of the plane’s personal seat viewers is one thing. But viewing it from your iPad, with much better resolution, so that the people around you can see your screen if they’re looking, is totally different. Full Story

Kate Winslet is currently shooting Divergent playing Jeanine Matthews, her first role in her acclaimed career as a proper villain though you could argue that her character, Hanna, in The Reader might be much more morally sinister. Kate calls it playing a “baddie”, and she decided to maintain her distance from the cast just to make them fear her that much more. Full Story

Now that I'm moving to Toronto, I'll be able to take my ma to the movies. The process of taking the Chinese Squawking Chicken to the movies is, I imagine, kinda like taking a child to the movies in that your selection has to be very particular. For kids, no violence, no profanity, etc. For the Squawking Chicken, we avoid the talky ones, because she doesn't understand the language and also because she hates when people are long-winded, which rules out dramas. Full Story

You know that already. But it’s a good time to point it out, again, because for those of you who would argue that it’s not Bruce Willis’s fault, and not the celebrity’s fault, well…how come Hugh Jackman isn’t an asshole? I know you think reporters are stupid and ask stupid questions. Full Story

I’ve never interviewed Bruce Willis one on one. I’ve stuck my microphone into a scrum of microphones at a premiere (that I can’t remember now) but I’ve never had to speak to him directly and hope that he speaks back to me directly. I hope I never have to because it seems terrifying. Full Story

Many nights (they’ve) prayed With no proof anyone could hear In (their) hearts, a hopeful song (They) barely understood Now (they) are not afraid Although (they) know there's much to fear (They) were moving mountains long Before (they) knew (they) could… There can be miracles when you believe Though hope is frail, it's hard to kill Who knows what miracles you can achieve When you believe, somehow you will You will when you believe This could be the lullaby Twi-Hards (perhaps these two who are all over him at the airport in Toronto) have been going to sleep listening to since Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson broke up. Full Story

She’s shooting in New York so we’re getting new shots every day. Today Jennifer Aniston stepped out in a hat, denim shorts, a purple tee, and her usual. You know. Yesterday Jen wore white…with more, errm, support. And a black dress with that awful wig. I guess when you’re 44 years old and they still stand up so nice you’d want to show that off? We’re going to get a lot of Jen in the next few weeks. Full Story

Deadline broke the news yesterday that Sacha Baron Cohen has dropped out of the Freddie Mercury biopic that he’s been working on for a couple of years. Queen has creative approval of the film and apparently Cohen was pushing for a “gritty” R-rated version of Freddie’s story while the band wanted it to be more PG. Full Story

Johnny Depp is overseas promoting The Lone Ranger, trying to squeeze out every dollar possible from the foreign market to make up for Disney’s loss on the movie. At the same time, he’s also turning it into a family holiday with his girlfriend. Here are Johnny and Amber Heard, holding hands after a museum visit in Berlin with his kids, Lily Rose and Jack. Full Story

Marvel’s dick was definitely the biggest at Comic-Con. But if there was a vote for Most Popular, among geeks and non-geeks, on the male side it was probably Tom Hiddleston’s Loki. On the female side… Please. Jennifer Lawrence. Of course. She had two projects to promote: Catching Fire, obviously, and X-Men which speaks to the extraordinary professional high she’s been riding as the heroine of two franchises each with its own independent fanbases and a good balance too. Full Story
