First call up the memory. The dusty book with the library smell and the girl from the book-modelling place (where do they find those people)? The utter unfamiliarity of New Mexico for most of her readers, who were conditioned to believe that all Judy Blume books would happen a train ride away from Manhattan. Full Story

I said once that no matter how bad The Lone Ranger looks, I wouldn’t bet against director Gore Verbinski pulling a rabbit out of his hat and coming up with something entertaining and crowd-pleasing, if not exactly good. Verbinski is the kind of director that exceeds in chaotic conditions and he has a knack for finding solid character beats amidst splashy action sequences. Full Story

Alan Rickman is directing Kate Winslet in a new film called A Little Chaos. It's a period piece. So...now what do you want to watch? Marianne Dashwood, Colonel Brandon, how long has it been since your last viewing of Sense & Sensibility? Recently-ish for me, actually. It was available on a flight late last year. Full Story

I always forget that Joseph Gordon-Levitt was in GI: Joe. In fact, I always forget that JGL and Channing Tatum have actually been in other stuff together (Stop-Loss, JGL’s upcoming Don Jon). They’re probably friends, or friendly work acquaintances anyway. Isn’t that weird? JGL and Channing Tatum are buddies. Full Story

Well she can’t in this dress. Here’s my G in Antonio Berardi last night at the big Hollywood premiere for Iron Man 3. The sleeves are good. Not feeling much else, especially the design around the breasts and the collar. But then again, as it always is with Gwyneth Paltrow, that’s probably not the point. Full Story

We will get to Gwyneth in a minute. Of course, she’ll have her own dedicated article. This article however is about Robert Downey Jr, and, more specifically, RDJ, his wife Susan, and their cinematic mirror, Pepperony. But first... look at this badass arriving in a Stark Audi at the Hollywood premiere of Iron Man 3 last night. Full Story

Lack of Diverse Imagination

I don’t like feeling duped… Last night I got all screechy hysterical on Twitter over what was promised to be a “sneak peek” of Divergent. Basically I was one step away from calling Lainey to hold my hand while we watched. Bah. This single photo is not a sneak peek Full Story

Alex Pettyfer is not Christian Grey

Somehow a story on The Wrap about director Gus Van Sant shooting an unsolicited test reel for Fifty Shades of Grey, in which he used Alex Pettyfer as Christian Grey, has turned into “Alex Pettyfer has auditioned for Fifty Shades of Grey”. But that isn’t what happened. What happened is that Van Sant apparently really wants this gig and so he made a tape to give the producers an idea of what his vision would be for the project (reportedly he filmed the “loss of virginity” scene which has the potential to be super f-cked up on film), and he happened to use Pettyfer, probably because he’s a very pretty and not particularly shy performer (see also: Magic Mike). Full Story

Carey Mulligan and Marcus Mumford were married on April 21, 2012. Here they are, just after their first anniversary, hand in hand in New York yesterday after lunch. According to the band’s official website, Mumford & Sons isn’t touring again until May 21. Perhaps Marcus can join Carey in Cannes then as her film Inside Llewyn Davis will screen in competition there. Full Story

Here’s Scarlett Johansson on the set of Captain American: The Winter Soldier yesterday in LA. This will be the third time she plays Natasha Romanov, Black Widow. As Sarah wrote earlier this month, “The Winter Soldier is all tangled up in the Black Widow’s backstory” and while, unlike Sarah, I don’t speak nerd, I’m guessing it has something to do with all that “red in my ledger” she kept going on about in The Avengers. Full Story
