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

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
