Dear Gossips,

Armie Hammer and Justin Theroux ran around Washington, DC for the day, then attended a screening of On the Basis of Sex in New York City. Both fangirled over Ruth Bader Ginsburg, which is understandable. But I find the bromance interesting because Armie is so LA - a born-and-bred California movie star. Full Story

It’s Taylor Swift’s birthday today. She’s 29. Which means we have a month to go before an entire year of conversations and think-pieces about Taylor turning 30 and what she’s done and what she’s going to do and this, that, and the other. Nobody needs to hurry this discussion. Full Story

Mary Queen of Scots is a slightly anachronistic and completely ahistorical telling of the feud between Mary, Queen of Scots—the lack of proper punctuation in the title drives me nuts—and Queen Elizabeth I. Take this as even less of a history lesson than The Favourite Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Sandra Bullock was in Sao Paolo this week promoting her new movie Bird Box which premieres on Netflix on December 21. Basically Netflix’s strategy is to get you to stay home during the holiday season and not leave the couch.  Read Full Intro
