We saw it happen with Twilight: media editors strongly encouraging their reporters to positively report on anything Twilight so as to encourage traffic. I’ve heard that some reviewers were asked specifically not to sh-t on the Twilight movies in fear of fan mobilisation against their outlets. Full Story

Have I mentioned how obsessed I am with Anne Hathaway’s hair? I have, I know. And it won’t stop. Here’s Anne, the Catwoman you all insist on hating, at the premiere of The Dark Knight Rises last night in New York. And that is a great dress on her. Not on everyone, but definitely on her. Full Story

Here’s James McAvoy on the New York set of The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby yesterday. He runs, then he’s tired. I haven’t read the script but since it’s kind of sort of a romance let’s pretend for now that he’s rushing home to prevent her from leaving. Will he make it? Well, if this were a Chinese movie he would arrive home to her dead body; we don’t like happy endings. Full Story

Dylan was at Comic-Con. He messaged me a photo of Jessica Biel’s shelf ass when she walked by him on the carpet. It’s extraordinary. Even more extraordinary is that I’m really into what she’s wearing here. That’s a great skirt. And those are great neon pumps - Brian Atwood. Full Story

Tom Hardy, my Summer Crush, has been in Namibia working on Mad Max: Fury Road. That’s what the beard is for. This is why he’s been less visible than the other actors in The Dark Knight Rises for promotional appearances leading up to the release. Full Story

But first, I missed these photos of Charlie Hunnam at the Critics’ Choice TV Awards last month with his long-time girlfriend Morgana. Charlie was in San Diego this weekend to promote Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim and the upcoming 5th season of Sons Of Anarchy. Pacific Rim is about horrible monsters and nice robots working with humans to take them down. Full Story

Yesterday I received an email from a reader called Kendra who complained that it had been 21 days since the last Jeremy Renner post and this was unacceptable. Well, Kendra, he presented at the ESPYs last night so the drought is over. I suspect Sarah from Cinesnark probably isn’t sorry about this either because, last I checked, Renner is her jam. Full Story

When I first started looking into the new developments on Joplin, I thought the news was that recent Tony Award winner Nina Arianda was replacing Amy Adams in THE Janis Joplin biopic, but it turns out Arianda is starring in A Janis Joplin biopic and Adams is still attached to another, different Joplin project. Full Story
