Kate Mara prefers to share her personal and relationship milestones on her own terms. And when she does, we get just a taste. When she and Jamie Bell tied the knot about 18 months ago, the wedding snap caption read simply, "Nuptials Full Story

Annette Bening has not yet won an Oscar. Sure, she’s been nominated four times, but that statue has yet to be engraved with her name. To many, it’s most definitely “too early” to tell, but for a few hours yesterday, Annette’s latest film The Report was the biggest sale at Sundance, going to Amazon for a then-record of $14-million Full Story

Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively hosted a special screening of Mary Poppins Returns in New York last night, fêting Emily Blunt and director Rob Marshall. The photos are sweet: lots of hugging, schmoozing, and big smiles. And they couldn’t have had better timing. See photos from tonight’s special screening of #MaryPoppinsReturns Full Story

Anne Hathaway is responsible for my first entertainment mirage of 2019, something that seems too good to be real and news that made me do a few double-takes. Variety reports she’s joined the cast of Todd Haynes’s upcoming legal drama about the DuPont chemical scandal, opposite Mark Ruffalo. Full Story

Forgive me, but don’t stop Bohemian Rhapsody now. The movie’s made over $714 million worldwide as of this writing, and Rami Malek is the face of not just the film, but the campaign. And when he accepted the Breakthrough Performance Award last night in Palm Springs, his speech seemed like a dress rehearsal for what’s ahead. Full Story

Chris Pratt hosted a special screening of A Quiet Place in LA on Wednesday with John Krasinski. It’s not like their friendship is a secret; they’re super bro-y on Instagram and support each other’s charity efforts. Plus, Chris was so taken with A Quiet Place that back in April, he recorded a reaction video from his car that John later laughed about on Seth Meyers Full Story

Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman’s rivalry is fast approaching Jimmy Kimmel-Matt Damon status. It’s slightly less mainstream, but these two have been “sparring” online for years, conveniently timed around the promotion of their respective projects. And after Hugh cozily posed with Emily Blunt at Variety’s Actors on Actors photocall a few days ago, John Krasinski is jumping into the chirping mix too Full Story

Here’s Timothee Chalamet at the London premiere of Beautiful Boy inspired by Harry Styles. Timmy was in great spirits – perhaps he knew that the movie was doing very well stateside at the box office.  Beautiful Boy posted one of the highest per-screen averages of the year, with around $55,000 per screen at four theatres in New York in LA. Full Story
