Leonardo DiCaprio, Margot Robbie, and Brad Pitt may have brought the throwback glamour to Cannes, but it’s Marion Cotillard who completely stole the show and the festival in my eyes. The photos and background reactions of her in a midriff-baring Balmain look at the premiere of Xavier Dolan’s Matthias et Maxime are something ELSE. Full Story

Avengers: Endgame premieres in Canada today, but before we get another look at Carol Danvers and the “things coming out of [her] hands,” Brie Larson took in a performance of To Kill a Mockingbird on Broadway last night. Check out these photos of her backstage with her hair up, in the same double-breasted black suit she rocked on Fallon hours earlier, hugging and cozying up to LaTanya Richardson Jackson who is married to Samuel L. Full Story

Sandra Bullock was photographed leaving a dentist appointment in Beverly Hills yesterday, decked out in a white shirt, khakis and a jean jacket; it’s an outfit that would be benign casual daywear for the average star, except that A) Sandra is one of those celebrities of a certain status that we rarely see in the wild B) she’s channeling some Angela Bennett/Ruth Marx realness with this outfit. Full Story

The seventh and final season of Veep premieres this Sunday, and it’s just as sharp, biting, and brilliant as ever. The searing joke-and-insult-per-second ratio is still as high as we’ve come to expect. Julia Louis-Dreyfus knows it’s a winner too.

The redband trailer for the bawdy, brassy and very sassy Booksmart dropped yesterday about 12 hours after the film's world premiere at SXSW, where it debuted to raucous laughter and a standing ovation. Standing ovations at SXSW aren't necessarily a thing, unless you're Boyz II Men Full Story
