He’s in Madrid with Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower. I don’t see why I have to justify why he’s the Best Dressed Of The Week. But if you really want me to, here’s how I break it down: -Nathan is wearing a carpet on the carpet -Nathan is wearing flipflops. -It’s NATHAN I love him. Full Story

It’s cute asphyxiation. You won’t be able to breathe from the cuteness. H7 went to Disneyland with her family yesterday. Check her out on the merry-go-round with dad and her big brother Brooklyn who, obviously, only went on to accompany her, because what 14 year old wants to ride on the merry-go-round. Full Story

Eva Longoria put out a press release a few weeks ago to let us know that she had a new boyfriend, Ernesto Arguello. Us? Or him? George Clooney, obviously. Even though she claims there was nothing happening. Was there nothing happening because there was really nothing, or was it because she pushed him too hard? So then the paps shot Eva and Ernesto all over the place, on holiday in Europe, house-hunting in LA, while George wasn’t paying attention, preferring to hang out in Como with his boys before going to work on Tomorrowland in British Columbia. Full Story

If you’ve been reading this blog long enough, you know how a few of us here feel about Reality Bites – ok maybe just Duana and me. This is the origin of our love-hate for Ethan Hawke. And our enduring love for loafers with anything. If you clicked on the title of this post because you know the name, I don’t need to explain much more to you. Full Story

Alexander Skarsgard was naked on the True Blood finale on Sunday. I don’t watch the show anymore but apparently he was reading a book in the snow and then some sh-t went down and everyone’s panicking. Oh please. True Blood is the one show you don’t have to panic over. They can make anything happen. Full Story

After the relief of Vin Diesel being relegated to playing a tree, the next bout of Marvel casting speculation turned to the final piece of the Guardians of the Galaxy puzzle—who would voice Rocket Raccoon, the trigger happy space varmint and biggest WTF element of a WTF-heavy concept. Full Story

Aloof AND Self-possessed

There’s a new Rooney Mara profile in the NYT Times magazine. She doesn’t call herself aloof this time. No, she doesn’t. But the word does appear in a list of words the writer cites as adjectives that have been used in the past to describe her. Which is why Rooney had to come up with something new…? I promise you, I tried. Full Story

Ben Affleck is Batman: the Nerd angle

Sarah Posted by Sarah at August 23, 2013 13:01:50 August 23, 2013 13:01:50

Well it’s definitely a better pick than some MTV pretty boy. The news that Ben Affleck will be Batman in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel sequel was greeted, predictably, with equal parts nerd-joy and nerd-rage. The joy mostly comes from Affleck being a proper actor—did they tease us with that MTV guy to make this look better?—with a hot career right now, and the rage comes from one thing: Daredevil. Full Story

Remember when some Teen Wolf actor tried to convince people that he could be Batman? Click here for a refresher. It makes that guy look even worse now. Because, well, they were obviously aiming a lot higher. Two weeks ago The Hollywood Reporter put out a long list that included Ryan Gosling and Josh Brolin. Full Story

August 23, 2013 – Smutty Shout-Outs

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 23, 2013 12:38:51 August 23, 2013 12:38:51

Andrea! Happy Birthday on Sunday! By request, here’s Ray Stevenson and, by approval, Chris Hemsworth. And why not? Let’s go Cate Blanchett, because if you’re generous on your day, he’ll be generous on his. That’s when you really get what you want. And for Sasha who is sick and worrying Beth and Caity – lying on a pile of fresh laundry is a good start. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Have you read The Book Thief by Markus Zusak? I referenced The Book Thief exactly 3 years ago here in a post arguing in favour of YA – that it’s underrated, that it’s ignorant to dismiss it on the basis of its classification, because otherwise you’d be deprived of a work like The Book Thief, as profound, complex, and insightful as any so-called adult literature, and arguably more accessible.  Read Full Intro
