Dear Gossips,

HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR! It is the Year of the Goat/Sheep. For some signs, when your year comes around, it’s not a great turn on the cycle. For example, if you’re a Tiger, your worst year is the Year of the Tiger.  Read Full Intro

Daniel Craig and Monica Bellucci posed in Rome yesterday. Production on Spectre will begin in Rome on March 8th. It’s been kind of a bumpy ride so far. Craig hurt his knee earlier this month in studio in London and a crew member was injured last week in Austria. The Rome scenes will reportedly involve a car chase and at some point they’ll crash it into the Tiber. Full Story

Musicals are not my bag, so I had to brace myself to watch The Last 5 Years, an adaptation of Jason Robert Brown’s musical. I still ended up texting Lainey ten minutes in, electrically shouting that they wouldn’t stop singing because THEY WOULDN’T STOP SINGING. Musicals are inherently creepy—hey, you’ve just been stabbed, let’s stop to sing and dance about how you’re dying—but I can deal with the construct. Full Story

Ha. Look at Mae Whitman. In the best outfit she’s ever worn. For the premiere of The DUFF in NYC last night. The DUFF opens this weekend. Mae plays The DUFF– Designated Ugly Fat Friend. Robbie Amell is her childhood best friend, next door neighbour, nemesis, and, well, I think you know the formula. Full Story

Scarlett Johansson is testing for psychopaths

Scarlett Johansson’s career re-direct over the last several years is impressive. She’s become one of the very few actresses who can open an action movie, she’s retained her artistic indie cred, she’s doing the motherhood thing without turning it into a career move, and she has become rather exclusive in her public appearances, so that when she does show up somewhere, it feels like kind of a big deal. Full Story

I don’t think I’ve talked about Fifty Shades Of Grey at all this week. Have I? Pretty sure no. Pretty sure I haven’t asked you about Dakota Johnson yet. As I told you last week in my review of the movie, she totally makes the movie. You are so into her in the movie. Weren’t you? So far, I haven’t heard from anyone telling me I’m out of my ass on that point. Full Story

The film adaptation of Philip Roth’s novel American Pastoral has undergone some upheaval during its development. First Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connelly were going to star as the central couple, then Bettany dropped out and was replaced by Ewan McGregor—but Connelly stuck around (does that make for weird dinner conversation at home?). Full Story

We studied Thomas Hardy for a few weeks in one of my elective Fem-Lit university classes one year. I was not great with attendance at the time. There was a casino that had just opened two hours away. My parents were out of the country. For several months, I made some very bad decisions. Can’t recall why I showed up for that session in particular – probably lost all my money – but I’ll never forget the discussion, even though I hadn’t done any of the reading. Full Story

Lainey emailed me last night and said I needed to go look at Norm Macdonald’s Twitter. So I did and it turns out that Macdonald, who appeared on SNL40 over the weekend, was having an SNL-themed story time about the week running up to the anniversary special. The big revelation that everyone is latching onto is that Eddie Murphy was supposed to appear in the “Celebrity Jeopardy” sketch as Bill Cosby, but that he backed out at the eleventh hour because he didn’t want to “kick a man when he was down”. Full Story
