Look at how Helen Mirren outclasses everyone on this carpet, as it should be. Anyway, Jessica Biel is married now so... I guess that’s why she’s dressing like she’s 50. Compare what she looks like with Scarlett Johannson, age 27. Scarlett is exactly 27, if not even more youthful. Full Story

Tom Hardy wants some video game action, too

A few months ago it came out that Michael Fassbender had signed on to produce and star in an adaptation of the video game Assassin’s Creed. I fretted, because video game movies, historically, don’t work and I don’t want to see Fassbender suffer the same fate as Jake Gyllenhaal and Prince of Persia. Full Story

With a Best Picture field that can accommodate anything from 5 to 10 nominees, the last few years always featured talk about which of the more populist films could be included in the Oscar race. Last year the conversation revolved around Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 (no nomination materialized), and the field was expanded in the first place when The Dark Knight was so egregiously overlooked in 2009. Full Story

Back in March 2011 I reported exclusively that Jennifer Lawrence was the first choice to play Katniss in The Hunger Games. At one point however, they were also interested in Saoirse Ronan, particularly after her performance in Hanna (click here for a refresher) but that she would have to really, REALLY dazzle producers to take the job away. Full Story

Leonardo DiCaprio was photographed in New York on the set of The Wolf Of Wall Street yesterday playing tennis and smoking cigarettes. He’s no longer the young thin-faced Jack Dawson of Titanic but in many ways, the reason we still see him that way is because of how he moves his body. He’s always had that awkward boyish gait. Full Story

Carey Mulligan and Marcus Mumford flew out of LAX yesterday. Mumford & Sons played the Hollywood Bowl the night before. Carey isn't working on anything right now after wrapping Gatsby and the Coen Bros movie. It's new bride down time and she's presumably spending it on the road with her husband. Full Story

Bradley Cooper: from SMA to American of the Year

PEOPLE Magazine will announce the 2012 Sexiest Man Alive today, ending Bradley Cooper’s uninspired reign just as he covers the new issue of Esquire in service of Silver Linings Playbook, considered by many to be a strong Oscar contender. It’s almost as if his SMA title was a year premature, non? And that makes sense seeing as, ahem, he was rumoured to not have been the first choice. Full Story

But first... A quick update on the Loser of 2012, Lindsay Lohan. Lohan bailed on Barbara Walters on the good advice of her new PR team. Instead she’s doing The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Barbara is mad. And she played a clip from Part 1 of their interview, conducted in the summer, on The View: Conversations with people like this are infuriating. Full Story

Atonement. Remember how gross Benedict Cumberbatch was in Atonement? It’s a testament to his skill as an actor but I can’t help but hold it against him anyway. Poor Robbie took the fall for Paul’s underage creeping! Can you be TOO good at your job? Atonement was the second time James McAvoy and Cumberbatch worked together, having previously co-starred in Starter For Ten which I quite liked and think is underrated though I can’t remember Bendy in it at all. Full Story

Les Miserables Vogue

And here we are, another year of American Vogue covers, and none of them featured Victoria Beckham. Anne Hathaway is December, understandably. She is Wintour-approved, and Valentino-approved, and she is the star of one of the most highly anticipated movies of the season, my favourite movie of the year, Les Miserables, which just happens to open at Christmas. Full Story
