It was the obvious title of this post. What else could it be? Thank you for all your emails and tweets. And your concern. And your mockery. You know what I love? I love that you reached out to me on this news. This is vanity, yes. Let me own that. I am proud of it. That somehow, in a sick, weird, loser way, some of you associate me with. Full Story

A hypocrite, I mean. I really don’t want to be. But I can feel it closing in. Is it nobler to admit it, or to feign that it’s not happening? The truth is always the way, right? Here’s what I’m saying: after whining about how people have to learn to interpret fiction onscreen differently than the fiction in their heads, I need to point out that this Entertainment Weekly cover Full Story

After promising teasers, the first trailer for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues has been released and it’s already quotable. This is the measure of a good comedy—not necessarily a good movie, but a good comedy—how often and how long you can quote it. Full Story

First reaction seeing these shots of Taylor Lautner on set today in New York: I thought they already made this movie...? It was the one with Lily Collins.

Eddie Redmayne played tennis with some other celebrities at the Rally Against Cancer charity match at the AEGON Championships in London the other day. I kept looking at this shot of him thinking it was a two hand forehand, evidence of my right hand bias. Because when I asked my husband Jacek, a leftie, to help me figure out why Eddie was hitting a two hand forehand, he told me I was an idiot. Full Story
