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

They came first! I was 21 when Before Sunrise came out. It hit me where I lived. Who didn’t want to go to Europe and fall in love on a train? Please. This, for a while, was your Summer Crush screenplay, wasn’t it? I will always be 21 when I watch Before Sunrise. Full Story

This is Kate Hudson last night at the NY premiere of The Reluctant Fundamentalist. I’m really into this white sweater dress. It’s not for everyone, and I couldn’t wear it, definitely not, but on her, it’s a good look. There’s just...something bothering me about her hair lately. Full Story

Thor’s shampoo commercial

Sarah Posted by Sarah at April 23, 2013 15:41:54 April 23, 2013 15:41:54

Are you tired of dry, damaged hair? Sick of split ends? Try Asgardia, the number one restorative shampoo in the universe! Thor: The Dark World, which will henceforth be referred to as “Thor 2” because that’s a silly title, has released its first trailer in advance of Iron Man 3’s international release this weekend, and it’s basically just a commercial for really great hair. Full Story

New pictures of our Winona Ryder three weeks in a row -- not sure this has ever happened in the lifetime of this blog. Here's Winona last night in LA at the premiere of The Iceman. She's been looking lovely lately. Here...well... the hair isn't great, is it? The way it's teased like that, it actually gives her back that off-balance vibe she'd had for years and I mean after the bad time when it became sad and uncomfortable, and not before it, when it was still sexy/quirky/vulnerable. Full Story

Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg were at Summer of Sony the other day promoting 2 Guns. When I saw these photos, I wrote to Sarah from Cinesnark asking her if she thought Mark acted like Mark when he was around Denzel, all heavy-dicked and thick-armed, or if she thought he’d be deferential instead. Full Story
