There’s something about good actors also being good mimics. There’s some connection between being good at one and also being good at the other. It makes a certain kind of sense, especially given accent work and how being able to mimic would make mastering an accent easier. So when you tell me that Benedict Cumberbatch is good at impressions, it’s like—well of course he is, he’s a super good actor. Full Story

Just in case there was any doubt about what’s happening … Miley Cyrus was at the USC football game last night. Patrick Schwarzenegger is a student there. They kissed. They took selfies of themselves kissing. She looks happy and relaxed, all tricked out in college gear. Which is what I find most interesting about this. Full Story

How To Get Away With Murder Season 1 Episode 8 recap PUT SOME CLOTHES ON, ANNALISE. Like seriously now. How many episodes where she’s in a peignoir? I thought that everyone on TV acknowledges that T-shirts and assorted pajama parts are the TV woman’s sleep outfit of choice? And does she not own a robe or some sort of other garment that might at least nod to the guise of professionalism? Or maybe she’s not successful, so therefore she’s got no money to rent offices where people don’t see that she favours magenta sateen nightgowns? Also, can you believe I had a professional obligation to use the word ‘nightgown’? Also, no party sequence. Full Story

Robert Pattinson gave us a good look at his haircut last night at the GOGO Gala in Beverly Hills. He shaved too. And from the front, it’s not bad. That’s the best suit I’ve seen on him in a long time, no sign of any mothering hip action at all. He even seems young and more English again. Full Story

Scandal Season 4 Episode 8 recap Do you buy it? Because I do. I buy that everything Olivia Pope has accomplished has been with the guiding hand of her Daddy behind her. Some of the time, even most, she hasn’t needed it, like a parent who holds a cautious hand behind their child in case they fall on the stairs – but it’s been there the whole time. Full Story

He’s definitely a prince. And technically I think he’s Captain Wales, right? Is he a gentleman too? Well, I assume he knows his manners. There have, however, been times that he’s had lapses in propriety. But it’s been two years since Prince Harry’s last incident. And since then, sh-t, he’s been practically flawless. Full Story

Prince William and Catherine were at the Royal Variety Performance at the London Palladium tonight. And One Direction was there. And they all met and shook hands. I’m delighted at Harry Styles’s wardrobe choice. An animal print leather jacket is exactly what a pop star should be wearing when they meet the future king of England. Full Story

We spend a lot of time here discussing the hard sell of parenthood in the tabloids: baby bump speculation, the motherhood/fatherhood whitewash, selling photos, social media posts, even maternity clothing. There’s an argument to be made that Hollywood commodifies women’s bodies, and that attitude extends into the womb. Full Story
