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

Remember a few weeks ago US Weekly reported that Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth were in-betweening each other? Click here for a refresher. Then she came out as genderqueer and bisexual and everyone stopped talking about him again. Except to give him some spillover side-eye about Independence Day 2 and how Mae Whitman was cut out from the movie for supposedly not being “hot” enough with Liam as her supposed love interest.

Angelina Jolie is in Johannesburg today with William Hague participating on a panel on conflict related to gender violence at the African Union Summit. Yesterday she was in meetings speaking with activists and victims of abuse. Apparently Pax has joined her on this trip while the rest of the children remain with Brad Pitt at Chateau Miraval.

A new trailer for The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (all the periods in this title are annoying, can I please skip them next time?) was released last night. The movie comes out on August 14. And both Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer need the momentum. This preview is a pretty good start. It’s slick and campy and I don’t know what’s wrong with me but I got excited seeing Hugh Grant.

I was one of those dumb f-cking c-nts. I was a believer. I kept believing, right up to the very, very end. Right up until USADA charged him in October 2012. I’ve written about it before. How much I wanted to hang on to the idea that Lance Armstrong was possible. I read all the books. Then, afterwards, after I had to give that up, I read Tyler Hamilton’s book, The Secret Race (which I obsessed over for weeks). Full Story
A generous donor has put up $100,000 in matching funds in support of Covenant House Vancouver. This means that every dollar you give will be DOUBLED. And that makes a huge difference in the lives of young women like Jennie. I worked with Jennie when I was a full-time development officer at Covenant House a few years ago. Full Story
Yesterday I posted new photos of Leonardo DiCaprio kissing his new model bonafide Kelly Rohrbach. They’re on a bike. You’ve seen it before. And even Vogue.com is taking shots at him now. Read that article. Read how they describe his “dad bod”. And point out how with Leo, it’s always a pattern: blonde, bike, rinse, repeat. As Tina and Amy said, “Like a supermodel’s vagina, please give a warm welcome to Leonardo DiCaprio”.
Does it get embarrassing for him? Or does he wear it with honour? I think he wears it with honour. I think Leonardo DiCaprio is more Entourage than Entourage. That the only difference between him and Vincent Chase is that he can actually act. And if you’re a fan of his you might say – that’s a MAJOR difference and it makes all the difference. Is it? Does it? When was Entourage ever about acting? Entourage was always about everything BUT acting. Which kind of adds up to nothing.

In the meantime I’m apologising to you with more photos of Jennifer Lawrence but, really, her bodyguard.
