Normally a guy behaving like this, with the hat and the fingers and the tongue, I’d be skeeved. But…it’s Jason Momoa. Actually it’s more Khal Drogo. Like if Khal Drogo lived in 2014 New York City, don’t you think he’d be exiting like this? And that’s weird for me. Full Story

It’s not that Cameron Diaz has ever been a morose celebrity. It’s just that… she seems really, really happy this year. Happier than she’s been in a long time. Check her out at the pool in Miami. It’s an easy happiness too, right? When she was with A-Rod I don’t remember it looking so easy. Full Story

Last night Marvel offered a seventeen minute sneak peek of Guardians of the Galaxy in IMAX 3D. They screened the prison break/riot scene featured in the trailers, plus sizzle reels of new footage. It was a good choice to get people hooked—the prison scene is really funny with great action, and it very neatly lays out who these people are, what they want, and why they band together. Full Story

Halle Berry’s Extant premieres tomorrow on CBS. She was at Letterman yesterday to promote it. For a star like Halle Berry to commit to a television series, beyond the pay day she was looking for, you know there are some expectations. Steven Spielberg is involved. Extant went to full season immediately. Full Story

Do you remember that dumb “in bed” game? Don’t lie. You do. I know it’s supposed to be played with fortune cookies and I also know almost everyone only plays in reference to a 90210 episode. Ugh. Brandon. But I couldn’t stop thinking about it in the context of this Taylor Swift article that inexplicably appears in the Wall Street Journal. Full Story

Desperately Seeking Susan. That was what came to mind when I saw these photos of Kristen Stewart’s new look as she arrived at the Chanel haute couture presentation today in Paris. It’s a movie Twi-Hards, chill. An 80s movies starring Madonna and Rosanna Arquette. I wish Stewart had taken this cut all the way blonde with dark roots. Full Story

US Weekly reported exclusively yesterday that Sofia Vergara and Meatball Joe Manganiello, the guy from True Blood who isn’t Alexander Skarsgard or Stephen Moyer or the one who looks like Britney Spears’s ex-boyfriend or the guy who plays Sookie’s brother, are dating. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I wasn’t on a side yesterday during the Wimbledon men’s final. All I wanted was a good match. And Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer gave us one of the best. God that Federer one-hand backhand is a thing of beauty. You ever read David Foster Wallace’s essay on Federer’s game? I’ve linked to it before but it’s worth another read. High level writing + first class athleticism deserves your time. Click here. I wish he could also have written a piece about Steffi Graf’s gorgeous one-hand backhand in its time.

Steffi and Andre Agassi were in Vancouver this weekend for Carlo Ancelotti’s wedding.

Welcome back to those of you returning from Independence Day weekend. Did you get my Fourth of July gift?

Yours in gossip,

Did you see Victoria Beckham at Wimbledon yesterday? She and David were seated next to Samuel L Jackson. And everyone was saying it was an “awkward meeting”. It wasn’t an awkward meeting. She was awkward. He was looking at her like, why the f-ck is this woman so awkward? Here’s a clip: It’s like she can’t decide – should I smile? I shouldn’t smile. Full Story

Gone Girl: the event

A new full length trailer for Gone Girl was released today. It was preceded by a series of posters put out over the weekend advertising not the film…but the preview. So that’s the marketing strategy for the film: they’re treating it as a theatrical event, a MEGA motion picture release, a MUST SEE MOVIE – not in the summer, but in the fall. Full Story
