Ben Affleck at Comic-Con. As expected, as predicted, he went there and did his job.

A big part of Marvel’s success has been that the Avengers are the coolest club in Hollywood. If Hollywood is a high school cafeteria—and it is—then the Avengers are the kids everyone wants to sit with. Playing catch up at Comic-Con this weekend, Warner Brothers tried to convince everyone that they’re cool, too, and we should totally come have lunch with them. Full Story

Prince Albert of Monaco celebrated 10 years on the throne this weekend. The twins were brought out for the occasion.

On Friday at Comic-Con, JJ Abrams took the stage along with LucasFilm chief Kathleen Kennedy and screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan and proceeded to blow the doors off the place. As promised, they did not show new footage, not exactly. Instead Abrams had a sizzle reel that had 6,500 hundred nerds weeping and screaming. Full Story

Check out Brange with the Chosen One Shiloh and Pax on Friday at Toys R Us. Some are speculating it was a shopping trip ahead of the twins’ 7th birthday. They turned 7 years old on Sunday. 7! How did that happen? I like the shot of Brad with his hand on the back of Pax’s neck. Full Story

Masters Of Sex Season 3 Episode 1 recap It may be because Lainey and I were embroiled last night in a discussion about a writer who didn’t bother to hide his condescension for women, but this episode of Masters of Sex, set in 1965, has firmly moved into what amounts to a family drama that documents how Bill Masters is frustrated by women being women. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Serena Williams defeated Maria Sharapova in straight sets yesterday at Wimbledon to get to the finals. You know what I don’t appreciate? Because I’m so superstitious? People are already handing her the win. Don’t call a shutout before the shutout, right? Stop this now.  Read Full Intro

You hear about this year? Several senior members of the British royal family were out today to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain. Later on there was a photo taken with veterans. And, well, old crusty Prince Philip got impatient and this is what happened: Just take the f-cking picture! Twice! He’s always been the one who talks all kinds of sh-t, non? And, well, you know how it is when people get older. Full Story
