Gwyneth Paltrow was photographed in Hyde Park yesterday. She’s wearing Ray-Bans. She was hanging out in the Ray-Ban area. Chris Martin (not pictured) was there as well to watch The Strokes perform. All musicians are fangirls of Julian Casablancas, aren’t they? If both Gwyneth and Chris are in London, presumably it’s a family trip. Full Story
Emma Bovary is never anything less than frustrating, so it’s fitting that the latest screen adaptation of Flaubert’s novel, Madame Bovary, should also be frustrating. Directed by Sophie Barthes and co-written by Barthes and Felipe Marino, Madame Bovary is a gorgeous film that is sometimes inspired and sometimes mundane, but is consistently frustrating. Full Story

Guy Ritchie stepped out last night in London with Jacqui Ainsley and son Rocco who turns 15 years old later this summer and is clearly looking more and more like Ridgemont High’s Jeff Spicolo, famously played, of course, by his mother’s ex-husband Sean Penn. It started last year when Madonna posted this shot Full Story

Spoilers, but also like, the title Like Whiplash before it, one film won both the Audience Award and the US Dramatic Grand Jury Prize at Sundance this year: Me and Earl and the Dying Girl. Whiplash went on to bag five Oscar nominations, winning three of them. I don’t know if Dying Girl will have the legs to carry it all the way to Oscar—it’s not as ferocious a movie as Whiplash, and it lacks a fiery, attention-getting performance—but it is certainly a very good movie, and it wouldn’t surprise me to see it pull an Adapted Screenplay nomination, if nothing else, telling the story of awkward high school student Greg’s senior year, in which he befriends a terminally ill classmate, struggles with his future, and falls out with his best friend.

Cara Delevingne is pretty irresistible. It’s not just that you can’t help but like her, it’s also that you can’t help but go along with whatever it is that she wants to do. And she’s always a good time. This is why so many celebrities end up on her Instagram, being goofs. Full Story

Coming out of Cannes, Denis Villeneuve’s latest film, Sicario, received very positive reviews, with many singling out Emily Blunt’s performance as a possible awards contender. Since breaking out with the Oscar-nominated Incendies in 2010, Villeneuve has established himself as a consistently compelling director of thrillers, and many think Sicario could be his first major mainstream hit (Prisoners was a modest success in 2013).

Angelina Jolie and son Pax were in Namibia recently, visiting the N/a’ankuse Foundation which aims to protect wildlife and prevent human-wildlife conflict. The Jolie-Pitt Foundation has supported the N/a’ankuse Foundation for many years. Namibia is special to them because, as you know, Shiloh the Chosen One was born there. Full Story
I bought Janet Jackson tickets on presale yesterday. Set my alarm for it at 10am to click on the AMEX Front Of The Line link. September 15 in Toronto. During TIFF. I thought that would be my highest Miss Jackson point of the day.
But then I listened to the 43 seconds of new music she posted on Twitter. God her voice sounds so much like Michael’s. At the end of that clip though?
That feels like it’s about to kick in to a funky ass beat, right?
Or, you know, it doesn’t have to. Janet’s given us a lot of ballads too. The last time I saw her on tour – and this was a looong time ago – she did a Come Back to Me/Let’s Wait A While/Again medley that I call up on YouTube a couple of times a year.
So yeah, if the new album is ballads, that works for me too.
Here’s Janet at LAX yesterday looking like she’s in tour shape. I just got goosebumps.
