When I was 19 I had my hair cut like this. Maybe even shorter. Then all 4 of my wisdom teeth came out and I lost a lot of weight. My mother said I was horrifying. She didn’t want our relatives to come over because she thought they’d spread rumours that I’d contracted AIDS. What? I haven’t mentioned before that my mother is ignorant? I really, really hated my hair then, not because my mother called it AIDS hair, but because I wanted to love it so much and it just wasn’t right for me. Full Story

I love cutaways to Emma Watson during a live show. She’s either dancing or laughing or scowling and giving someone attitude but it’s NEVER BORING. Last night was no exception. Right off the top during We Are Young she was all over it. The dress is good. But it’s so busy I wish she would have chosen a pair of simpler shoes. Full Story

Tomorrow will be exactly two weeks since my Summer Crush started on Tom Hardy. Lorella messaged me this morning to say “congratulations”. My Summer Crushes haven’t made it past 10 days in a long time. And considering this beard, that’s an accomplishment. Full Story

Is this your Finnick?

E! News reported the other day that Taylor Kitsch, Garrett Hedlund, and Armie Hammer were on the short list to play Finnick in Catching Fire, the sequel to The Hunger Games. Multiple sources tell me that Armie Hammer is far and away the first choice of director Francis Lawrence. Full Story

Jeremy Renner kicks major ass

I’m loyal to Jeremy Renner. Ask Lainey. I’ll defend him to the mattresses. Why? He pinged on my radar years ago, way before his big break, before SWAT even, back when he was knocking around town, getting drunk and singing in bars (listen, that dude can SING). Renner is the best kind of crazy—wildly fun, knows everyone, throws the kind of parties that lead to you having Nutso is busto written on your arm in Sharpie the next day, with no clue what that means. Full Story

I was on The Marilyn Dennis Show yesterday talking about summer movies. It’s a predominantly female audience. When Marilyn asked me about Magic Mike I was like... I mean, do you really need to know what it’s about? Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer, and the big wolf from True Blood take their shirts off. Full Story

Someone must have had a good night’s sleep. How old is Jackson? Do they get through the night without waking up at that age? Because Charlize Theron looked super fresh tonight in London at the Prometheus premiere. I don’t love the sparkly dress on its own. But clothing tends to become something different when she wears it. Full Story

It’s a gorgeous-looking movie. It certainly does what it can to appeal to both genders, the acting is solid if not spectacular, and there is enough modification on the classic to make it surprising at times, but it could definitely use some tightening. This movie does not need to be over 2 hours. Full Story

Oh Annie... Already? I will be tired of you by August 1 if you are campaigning already. The first trailer for Les Miserables, heavily featuring Anne Hathaway, was released today. And here she is stepping out with a broken arm in NYC. Coincidence or conspiracy? I love Les Miserables so much, and I want so badly for this movie to be so great, for now, that for this incident, I'll say coincidence. Full Story

How many times have you enjoyed the first teaser for Les Miserables? As I mentioned last week, many of the anticipated award films have been rolling out their previews the last couple of weeks. At this rate we should see something soon then from Anna Karenina. So... how’s our list looking so far? In no particular order: The Master Anna Karenina Gatsby Django Unchained Lincoln Life Of Pi . Full Story
