Sean Penn wrote a new book – have you heard about this? Remember that Bob Honey something something book he wrote a few years? It was …not a good book. People read it and they were like, this is sh-t. Maybe the people were wrong? Because they agreed to publish a sequel. And Sean’s been saying that the critics only fueled him to write more. Full Story

We are due with our fifth baby! Soon! (gender unknown) And it is definitely tougher to pick this time around.  We have twins: Jack and James, and singleton daughters, MacKenna and Grace. The middle names for the kids are (all but one) family names (Richard, Patrick, Rosemary, Caroline) and we will keep that going. Full Story

Shia LaBeouf wrote Honey Boy based on his own childhood as a young star, and plays his own father, here renamed “James”. The film is directed by Alma Har’el, making her feature film debut. Two things about Honey Boy are true: Shia LaBeouf is probably being too hard on himself, and Alma Har’el could be less up his ass about it. Full Story

The new Natalie Portman film Lucy in the Sky is not the simmering astronaut love triangle movie you're probably expecting to see. Instead, it's a disorienting look at life after space, raising a question of how "rocket lag" can permanently alter your desires and relationships with your "earth families. Full Story

Eddie Murphy returns to acting after a three year hiatus with Dolemite Is My Name, a biopic of Dolemite creator Rudy Ray Moore.

Millie Bobby Brown is getting flack for a face washing tutorial gone awry (apparently she was, gasp, faking it. On the internet of all places!). She has her own line, so I consider this a commercial. In skin care commercials, women stand at the sink and fill their cupped hands with water and then throw what looks like a bucket’s worth into their faces with complete abandon. Full Story

Sasha Finds: The Ultimate Face Mask

I have been on the hunt for an amazing night mask for a while now which, I have to say, is off brand for me because I hate having sh-t on me when I’m sleeping – a lip mask can legit throw me off my sleep game. So I was looking for something rich but not heavy.    When I tested out LXMI’s Pure Nilotica Melt Full Story

Late last year, the UK tabloids feasted on a report about Prince Harry telling palace staffers “What Meghan wants, Meghan gets”, supposedly when they were planning their wedding. It was days and days, if not weeks, of this on the front pages. Earlier this week, it was reported that Prince Andrew got into a fight with a staff member at Buckingham Palace Full Story
