Sarah from Cinesnark and I were sent this video today on Twitter by @daibyday -- thanks! It’s Tilda Swinton from a few days ago and she showed up at EbertFest 2013 and called on the audience to participate in a dance along. Full Story

Mrs Cambridge attended a reception tonight at the National Portrait Gallery in London wearing an empire waist dress in eggshell blue. It’s decided then: longer hemlines without a coat, shorter hemlines with a coat on top. It’s great to see her looking so healthy and strong, especially the way this pregnancy started. Full Story

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

American Idol ratings have been sh-tty this season. They’re blaming it on the fact that Mimi just sits there with her tits on the table, pausing only to throw fairy dust in people’s faces. Or maybe there are just too many goddamn singing shows!? Whatever. They’re blaming our butterfly. Full Story

It’s really hard to write about Jaden Smith. Here he is in Cancun, doing press for After Earth, the movie he made with his dad Will. Jaden is 14 and it’s obviously not fair to judge Very Young Hollywood by the same standards I feel so completely free to judge Adult Hollywood. He’s a kid. Full Story

Is H7 tipping the doorman here? This picture is cracking me up. I would totally open the door for H7. For free! Here she is leaving a members’ club in London today with her mother and earlier in the day on a walk with her father in Notting Hill. She seems to like sticking her hand in people’s faces. Full Story

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
