Dear Gossips,

All of the talk about Jennifer Aniston following the Screen Actors Guild awards the other night was related to Brad Pitt. I get that. Whether they actually get back together or not, they’re Hollywood’s Prom King and Queen, both going home with trophies recognising their work.  Read Full Intro

The Sundance Film Festival kicks off on Thursday. Sundance is always a clusterf-ck, at least in the years I used to cover it, as celebrities, their entourages, publicists, marketers, party planners, sponsors, filmmakers, and the attendant media jam themselves into Park City for a few days – and this year, since Taylor Swift’s Netflix documentary, Miss Americana, is opening, it’ll be even more chaotic. Full Story

Seventeen years after Bad Boys II, Will Smith and Martin Lawrence return for Bad Boys for Life, which is equal parts sequel and soft reboot. If you’re thinking that a “seventeen years later” Bad Boys movie will be full of dad jokes and aging references, you will be right. The humor in Bad Boys for Life is ENTIRELY dad jokes and aging references, which are either about how old Martin Smith and Martin Lawrence are now—although they barely look five years older than they did in 2003—or how young the new crew is (don’t worry, we’ll get there). Full Story

Prince William and Catherine hosted their first reception for the UK-Africa Summit at Buckingham Palace last night on behalf of the Queen. Her Majesty’s schedule is typically lighter in January and Prince Charles is preparing for a tour. So she decided that it was time for House Cambridge to give it a go and by all accounts it went well. Full Story

I really liked what Phoebe Waller-Bridge wore at the SAGs last night. Because I like that she tried it. That she was open to it. Some of her looks, to me, have been on the conservative side – and if you’ve watched Fleabag, you know this is not exactly a narrow mind. Full Story

Dearest Duana, I’m writing to you in a panic as we thought we had a name for our second daughter and now we’re not so sure. Okay, totally not sure. Our first born is Margaret “Maggie” Claire (now 21 months). Margaret is in honor of my husband’s beloved great grandmother, and Claire just because we think it’s pretty and it went well with Maggie. Full Story

It’s been just about two months since Justin Timberlake was photographed in New Orleans, very drunk, humiliating himself and his wife. Immediately afterwards his team tried to play it off like it was nothing. Full Story

Margot Robbie is having a busy winter. She’s in the middle of award season as an Oscar nominee, and she has Birds of Prey opening on February 7, which is Oscar weekend. Over the next few weeks she’ll be splitting her time between nominee appearances and Birds of Prey press, which, as a person who doesn’t like going places or doing things, sounds like a nightmare. Full Story

JLo’s signature glow hasn’t been as bright this award season. It could be because of her schedule (she is rehearsing for the Super Bowl) or I’m reading into it because she didn’t get nominated for an Oscar, something she of course wanted (because, as Eddie Murphy said in Vanity Fair, who wouldn’t want it?). Full Story
