They’re considering a Bridesmaids sequel without Kristen Wiig. This is what almost everyone was focusing on yesterday. The detail that gets lost in that headline though is that Kristen Wiig didn’t want to do it. And, well, don’t you love her for that? When asked about making another Bridesmaids, Wiig told The Hollywood Reporter Full Story

While JLo decided to celebrate her release from marriage by slumming it with a backup dancer who, on his best day, and I am being generous, is no more than a 5.5, Marc Anthony went with a model. And he’s flaunting it all over the social network. This is Marc with Shannon De Lima as posted on his Facebook. Full Story

This moment has been anticipated over the last couple years. Cumberbatch drew notice in his native UK first, with his portrayal of Stephen Hawking in an eponymous tele-film. Recently he’s been making inroads across the pond with his superb modern-day take on Sherlock Holmes and with supporting roles in British productions like War Horse, Atonement and, a better display of his talents, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Happy New Year. The Artist James Franco has written his first novel. The “semi-autobiographical" Actor’s Anonymous is kinda not really but totally about, who else?, The Artist James Franco Who Went To Film School. It’s to be published by Amazon (an early investor in WhoSay on which Franco was an early tweeter and through which many other celebrities communicate via Twitter - just in case you really thought they actually wanted to reach out to you and not, like, you know, make money) and, obviously, is required reading to understand, on the most profound level, what is To Act, when it is To Act, and, of course, how it is that Acting has been elevated to its highest form when The Artist James Franco is doing it. Does The Artist James Franco even need an editor? Source

Yours in gossip,

Colin Farrell was papped on the set of Seven Psychopaths yesterday, both times wearing a v-neck. The dude clearly does not believe in a crew neck. Like, ever. Reminds me of that Andy Samberg/Ben Stiller digital short. Was it inspired by Colin Farrell? Check out Colin being really cute with Sam Rockwell. Full Story

Dear Michael Fassbender…2011 was a huge year for you. After flirting with the edge since 2008, 2011 is when you went global. 2012 is poised to be more of the same, with Haywire next month, and Prometheus in the summer, and filming 12 Years a Slave with Steve McQueen. Full Story

Here’s a photo Mariah Carey posted on her Twitter and her website: her husband Nick Cannon has been hospitalised for “mild kidney failure”. While he clearly looks distressed, his wife has decided, out of love of course, to cram herself onto that small bed to comfort him, jamming him and his poor kidney into one of the bars. Full Story

I was quick to jump on the US Girl With The Dragon Tattoo movie bandwagon after the first trailers were released. I was ready to love it. To be super impressed. To fangirl over a version that I initially labelled unnecessary. Then I saw it. Dragon Tattoo Girl For America is a solid B+. It’s good. It’s watchable. Full Story
