It was Gwyneth Paltrow’s birthday yesterday. Her boyfriend, Brad Falchuk, talked about her “f-cking perfect smile.” Should it be “f-cking perfect smile” or “perfect f-cking smile”? Is one more grammatically correct than the other? Anyway, not my point. My point is others, like Rachel Zoe and Jessica Seinfeld, also wished her a Happy Birthday. So did Reese Witherspoon – on Insta stories. Not on her photo feed. Our Joanna wondered why G was not worthy of a dedicated post. My theory? Yesterday was also the 15th anniversary of Sweet Home Alabama and Draper James celebrated with a Melanie Smooter shopping list. I think this is simply a business decision – branding over birthday. The other option is that it’s the “Happy Birthday” equivalent of the Emmy tug-of-war. Let’s watch that again, just because.
This is the most beautiful woman of all time and today is her birthday. We are all so lucky that she came into the world (but no one is luckier than me). Happy Birthday, Love. PS - this is pretty much the most #Gwyneth pic I could find - it has pizza, red wine, her phone and that fucking perfect smile.
Of course Joss Whedon chose this hill to die on.
Wait, is it possible Hugh Hefner did good AND bad things? But... But... *robot head explodes, humans escape from robot hot tub*— Joss Whedon (@joss) September 28, 2017
My favourite read of the week so far is Mary Cella’s “Everything you Need to Know About Me, the Female Character You’re falling in Love with in a Romantic Film/TV Show Written by a Man.” Number 3 is, “I eat a lot, lol.” If you tweet the story from the website, the accompanying photo is of Zooey Deschanel. Nice touch.
Twitter is experimenting with 280 characters. But why don’t they let us fix typos?!
Hey guys! I feel SO sorry for those of you who have to abbreviate tweets because you only have 140 characters. Soooooooo lame! Anyway, what's everyone doing today? I'm just type-type-typing away! SO many characters! Talk to you soon. #blessed #280characters #abcdefg— Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) September 27, 2017
This photo of Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher reminded me that we are approaching pumpkin patch season. In 2014, Mr. Bones was the pumpkin patch of choice, as noted in the (still relevant) Rolling Stone article on paparazzi. As the piece pointed out, Matt Damon doesn’t take his kids there. Still doesn’t. Mr. Bones opens October 6. Who will we get the first shot of? My guess is Spencer and Heidi. They will want to get in on the action early and, bonus, she’s pregnant.
YOU LEAVE MANDY MOORE ALONE!
