Savannah just sent this over to me and I can’t thank her enough for bringing me so much happiness and cringe at the same time. The New England Patriots celebrated their Super Bowl last night. There was a party. They all received their rings – the biggest rings ever in the history of Super Bowl rings: 205 diamonds in total, and each player’s number customised. Full Story

Trooping The Colour, the Queen’s annual birthday celebration, happened this weekend. As always, all senior members of the British royal family were in attendance…including Big G, who decided to take over the entire day, like he always does. This kid.

So about Jennifer Lawrence’s bodyguard…
My favourite email from yesterday came from “ExCop” who wrote:
“Yup, he's a cutie but ... a professional bodyguard does not carry your purse dog (or your purse, or shopping or anything else). He needs to keep his hands free. He's supposed to be guarding her body. What does he do if she's attacked? Drop the dog? Throw the dog to her? Throw the dog at the attacker?”
Would Frank Farmer hold the dog? Did he carry the purse? The only thing I remember Frank Farmer carrying was his client – Rachel Marron. Otherwise he kept his hands free so he could talk through his wrist and make sure the car was pulled around back. Frank Farmer just wanted to do his job, goddamn it. And they just kept getting in the way of him doing his job.
Is it weird that exactly a year ago I imagined what the reboot of The Bodyguard would look like? Click here for a refresher. Tom Hardy could totally be Frank Farmer.
Anyway, here are some more shots of Jennifer Lawrence with her bodyguard.
Have a great weekend!

Freeheld opens on October 2. That’s perfect timing for TIFF. And they’re saying it could make an award season run given the cast (Julianne Moore, Ellen Page, Steve Carell, Michael Shannon, Josh Charles) and its subject matter. Which is the true story of a woman who, when dying of cancer, had to fight for the right to bequeath her pension benefits to her partner… also a woman. Full Story
