The Jurassic World press tour is fully engaged in advance of the movie's open this weekend, which means that Chris Pratt, the Internet's new boyfriend, is out and about, doing his duty as the face of this would-be franchise. So far, he's doing a better job than the Internet's other boyfriend named Chris, Chris Evans, just by keeping a lid on the pep while on the job. Full Story

Chris Hemsworth is the reigning Sexiest Man Alive. As you know, not really my jam. But I’m told I’m in the minority because he’s really tall, handsome, blonde, fit, and has an accent. OK. Also he’s holding a baby here. So, you know, even though he’s not for me, I do understand that part of my job is to contribute to your spank bank. Full Story

Taraji P Henson was named Best Actress in a Drama Series last night at the Critics’ Choice TV Awards. As you know, Empire was arguably the most successful series premiere of the season. And the critics have been quick to honour new talent and creativity – they were the first (and few) to recognise Tatiana Maslany’s work in Orphan Black. Full Story

Prince Harry and Prince William (am I allowed to put Harry before his brother?) played in the Audi Polo Challenge yesterday in Ascot wearing the sh-t out of their white pants. Look at that string around his neck while he’s checking his phone. God, he’s such a 2006 frat bro sometimes, it kills me. Full Story
Game of Thrones season 5, episode 8 recap Hands down this is Jon Snow's best episode to date. The battle at Castle Black last year was good, but this episode features one of the best battle sequences in the entire series (so far). I'd put the White Walkers’ attack on Hardhome right next to the Battle of the Blackwater. Full Story
"To our resident superhero, Gail, on her birthday. And though you'll probably immediately reject that description of yourself, imagine you're hearing it applied to someone else. Someone who leaps into pools to save a child without hesitation. Someone who builds a business dedicated to making animals' lives better, and spends her days trekking through the woods with them, and all of her spare time raising equally brave kids (and one occasionally disgruntled dog).

Need your opinion. Check out the video below of Ian Somerhalder asking fans to stop following him and refusing to take photos with them.
On the one hand, what is he without his Twi-Hards… (even if some of them think he’s Zac Efron)? There has to be some gratitude. Which, you could argue, if you’re on his side, he’s trying to express, despite the fact that it was “my day”.
On the other hand, the sob that comes up at 0:20 cracks me up. And the I’m-about-to-cry-face. Am I a dick for that? It’s just SO embarrassing. You’re basically on your hands and knees for someone who will likely never remember you.
Anyway, let me know what you think.
Have a great weekend!

In this morning’s intro, Lainey asked what we thought of the Ian Somerhalder asking his fans to back off for the day. But putting him aside, I wonder what it’s like for Nikki Reed to constantly be on the periphery of hysteria. She had it with Twilight and Kristen and Rob, and now she’s married to someone who inspires that same type of, um, devotion. Full Story
