A breakout hit at both Sundance and Cannes this year, writer/director Rick Famuyiwa’s Dope is equal parts Risky Business, The Breakfast Club, and Boyz n the Hood. It feels like a John Hughes movie, in that it’s very much about teenagers and their lives but isn’t for kids, and instead of suburban Illinois Dope is set in Inglewood, California, in a tough neighborhood called “the Bottoms”. Full Story

Jennifer Love Hewitt named her son Atticus. Did you know that one of the reasons she has the ‘Love’ in her name, or that she used it professionally, was to distinguish herself from all the other Jennifers? True story. It kind of worked, in that she’s the only Jennifer Love going. Full Story

Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s Flaunt photo shoot. Was not shot by Sam Taylor-Johnson. This doesn’t matter to you, probably. But it matters to me because, well, she’s a photographer, a celebrated photographer. And these pictures are so f-cking sexy, I just wonder whether they’d be more sexy or not as sexy if she’d been the one shooting. Full Story

Thanks, Ben Affleck

PBS has decided to suspend the third season of Finding Your Roots as the result of an internal investigation… Whatever. Basically PBS has suspended the third season of Finding Your Roots because of Ben Affleck. You’ll recall, once he learned that some of his ancestors were slave owners, Ben asked the show to censor their findings. Full Story

Jennifer Lawrence was back in New York yesterday after spending the weekend in LA. Here she is out for dinner last night. Without the hot bodyguard you’ve been used to seeing. This new bodyguard though… Also hot. Maybe even hotter? Is that why she’s in such a good mood? Or was it the wine? As you can see, Jennifer, who hasn’t been all that friendly for the paps recently, decided to give them some really great shots – chopsticks in her mouth, mock model strutting out of the car, big fake smile… It’s another way of saying f-ck you, obviously, but are you curious at all about the timing? Yesterday everyone was looking at those photos Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Channing Tatum covers the new issue of PEOPLE.

Sexy, Sweet, Stripperific!

That’s how the online headline reads. And then he goes on to talk about how much his wife and daughter mean to him; he also shares that his proudest moment in life was watching Jenna Dewan give birth and that the first thing he does every morning when he wakes up is check on his baby. Isn’t that so sexy, sweet, and stripperific?!?!

In the top corner…The Bachelorette.

I don’t watch this show, not one episode. But I do know that everyone’s losing their sh-t this week because she slept with one of the men. And is being slut-shamed for it. The quote that’s used for the inset is “Maybe I went too far”. Because she’s expected to apologise for being on a show about dating and having sex with one or maybe more of the men she’s supposed to, maybe, begin a serious relationship with.

The juxtaposition is glorious, non?

Yours in gossip,

Lainey
