Scarlett Johansson is testing for psychopaths

Scarlett Johansson’s career re-direct over the last several years is impressive. She’s become one of the very few actresses who can open an action movie, she’s retained her artistic indie cred, she’s doing the motherhood thing without turning it into a career move, and she has become rather exclusive in her public appearances, so that when she does show up somewhere, it feels like kind of a big deal. Full Story

I don’t think I’ve talked about Fifty Shades Of Grey at all this week. Have I? Pretty sure no. Pretty sure I haven’t asked you about Dakota Johnson yet. As I told you last week in my review of the movie, she totally makes the movie. You are so into her in the movie. Weren’t you? So far, I haven’t heard from anyone telling me I’m out of my ass on that point. Full Story

The film adaptation of Philip Roth’s novel American Pastoral has undergone some upheaval during its development. First Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connelly were going to star as the central couple, then Bettany dropped out and was replaced by Ewan McGregor—but Connelly stuck around (does that make for weird dinner conversation at home?). Full Story

We studied Thomas Hardy for a few weeks in one of my elective Fem-Lit university classes one year. I was not great with attendance at the time. There was a casino that had just opened two hours away. My parents were out of the country. For several months, I made some very bad decisions. Can’t recall why I showed up for that session in particular – probably lost all my money – but I’ll never forget the discussion, even though I hadn’t done any of the reading. Full Story

Lainey emailed me last night and said I needed to go look at Norm Macdonald’s Twitter. So I did and it turns out that Macdonald, who appeared on SNL40 over the weekend, was having an SNL-themed story time about the week running up to the anniversary special. The big revelation that everyone is latching onto is that Eddie Murphy was supposed to appear in the “Celebrity Jeopardy” sketch as Bill Cosby, but that he backed out at the eleventh hour because he didn’t want to “kick a man when he was down”. Full Story

Blake Lively was at the Marchesa presentation last night in New York. She wore Marchesa at her wedding. And there’s the Harvey Weinstein connection. OK but... If you’ve been visiting this site for some time, you know how I feel about Marchesa. They send some janky ass sh-t down the runway. Full Story

The internet was even more obsessed with Beyonce yesterday when several unretouched images of her were leaked online. By civilian standards, they’re fine. Pictures of a lovely looking person. But Beyonce is not a civilian. And being called a “lovely looking person” is not the message, not on brand. Full Story

Michael B Jordan and Sly Stallone are in Philadelphia shooting Creed. It’s another Rocky movie. Except… wait for it… this time Rocky’s training Apollo Creed’s son, played by Jordan. Um. I totally want to see this movie. Allison Williams was at the Michael Kors presentation at NY Fashion Week today, I think her first public appearance since it all went to sh-t with her dad. Full Story

Julia Roberts and Chiwetel Ejiofor were papped while shooting an emotional scene from The Secret In Their Eyes yesterday in LA. At some point, her husband, Danny Moder, who is also working on the film, came over to give her some instruction, likely technical. Because she doesn’t need any tips on how to cry on camera. Full Story
