George Clooney and Matt Damon’s Snowball Fight

George Clooney and Matt Damon in Ocean’s Twelve. (Warner Bros.)

George Clooney and Matt Damon had a snowball fight and…oops, my ovaries just exploded.

-I kind of love that Will Smith just admitted the reason he dropped out of Django Unchained was not actually “scheduling conflicts” but because he wasn’t playing the lead. If only all actors could be so ego-honest.

Liam Hemsworth was spotted at Miley Cyrus’ house. WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?!? Oh wait. I don’t care. Carry on.

Aaron Paul just won the internet by Instagramming an adorable photo of him as a little kid.

David Beckham lifted up his shirt to show off his tattoo in China.  This is how peace treaties should start.

-I really enjoyed this “Let’s Have a TV Baby” skit. This was pretty much my thought process before I finally started watching The Wire, because I was sure it was going to consume my life (though, oddly, it hasn’t yet. I’m on season 2 and it’s still a bit of a slog. Am I broken?!)

-This is a bit long, but NY Magazine‘s feature on what went down behind the scenes at the Today Show during the Ann Curry debacle is a juicy read.

-Someone sent Jared Leto an ear in the mail. It doesn’t surprise me. I saw his doc at TIFF last year and the fandom in that theatre was unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. (And I like some pretty geeky shit!)

-Apparently, this is what Madonna looks like now.

-Speaking of celebrity candids, everyone’s captioning these photos as “Emma Stone without makeup.” Um, she’s clearly wearing a bit of lipstick and maybe even some mascara, but she doesn’t look like a drag queen so I guess that makes it news in Hollywood.

Dennis Quaid and his wife have changed their mind about getting divorced…again. Maybe next time they should just crack open a bottle of wine and avoid the legal fees.

-I’m not sure Canada needs its own version of The View, but yay for Lainey getting a talk show gig!

Lindsay Lohan‘s latest film, directed by the ShamWow guy (no, really!), is a box office disaster, earning a measly $625 per theatre.

Lindsay has reportedly worked it out so that she doesn’t have to start rehab until after Coachella. Aw crap. Is it too late to sell my tickets?

-Meanwhile, she was spotted enjoying some PDA with her new boyfriend in a bar (of course).

-CBC is streaming the new Charles Bradley album. (His first CD made Rolling Stone‘s top 50 list in 2011.) It’s possible that I listened to “Let Love Stand a Chance” a lot today. Like, a lot.

-I’m also digging Sia’s cover of the Kinks‘ “I Go To Sleep.”

-Just as we were all starting to wonder if there were any good men left, this happened.

Details magazine delved deeper into Dana Martin’s plot to kill Justin Bieber — and revealed that he still wants to finish the job.

-Want to watch Tilda Swinton sleep in a glass box? Now you can! My coworker stumbled upon it this weekend — as did Sarah Jessica Parker. (Unfortunately, I think Marina Abramović has ruined me for weird performance art. Did you see this video of her and her ex-boyfriend? Kills me every time…)

Lena Dunham wrote a really sappy essay about her dog, if you’re into that sort of thing.

Lena also directed a short entitled “Best Friends” (narrated by Girls‘ star Adam Driver!) for Rachel Antonoff’s Fall 2013 line. It’s basically a four-minute Noah Baumbach film. Or maybe Wes Anderson (who just made his own fashion films for Prada).

-I enjoyed this video of Ian Somerhalder playing dress-up with a cardboard cutout of Paul Wesley way too much.

-Speaking of great vids, there’s a reason this one-man acapella cover of “Thriller” is blowing up today. Amazingness!

The Lizzie Bennet Diaries Kickstarter has almost hit $300k in just a couple of days (its goal was only $60k in 30 days). This ones a lot less controversial than the Veronica Mars campaign — these funds will go to creating two new series, as well as paying royalties for a cast an crew that haven’t really been paid (at least not well).

-Speaking of Kickstarter campaigns, I really liked the discussion during this NPR podcast about how the Veronica Mars campaign has led to a bit of fan entitlement. If/when supporters think they should have say in the plot, this thing goes off the rails.

-Meanwhile, Kristen Bell’s reaction video to the campaign was very cute.

Gwyneth Paltrow is reportedly opening a blowdry bar.

-The paparazzi caught Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner in some adorable family photos — just as a nasty tabloid report surfaced. I’m sure that was a total coincidence, though.

-Sweet! Seth Green is coming back to (live-action) TV. He’ll star in Seth MacFarlane’s new show.

Entertainment Weekly posted some pretty great Vines of stars getting slimed at this weekend’s Kids’ Choice Awards. There’s no way Sandra Bullock didn’t get a whole bunch of green stuff up her nose in that one shot. Gross.

Kristen Stewart and Katy Perry continued their BFF tour at the show. (KStew was spotted at a corner store with Robert Pattinson earlier that weekend, but she hit the red carpet solo.)

-Meanwhile, I love that Johnny Depp showed up. He almost always makes an appearance at the big fan-voted awards, which is great.

-A new, less-angsty trailer for Iron Man 3 debuted during the Kids’ Choice Awards this weekend.

-We also got a new trailer for World War Z, which focuses more on Brad Pitt and his family instead of just a wall of zombies.

Amanda Bynes Pulls Drake Into Her Twitter Breakdown


-Ok, Amanda Bynes needs to step away from Twitter. She tweeted today that she wants Drake to “murder my vagina.” Um, ouch! (Seriously though, at what point is someone going to intervene and get this girl the help she so obviously needs?)

-It takes special talent to pull off a double nip slip. Hats off to you, Nicki Minaj!

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are apparently thinking of naming their baby North. As in, North West. Seriously.

-I have lots of thoughts about Amy Poehler‘s new “Ask Amy” video. A) It’s hard not to watch her give advice on how to say goodbye with grace without thinking about her split from Will Arnett, B) She looks really skinny here. Should we worry, or is it just crappy lighting? C) Her son’s video-bomb at the end is adorable.

Will Sasso’s Vine videos (which basically consist of him puking up lemons) are kinda hilarious.

Seth Meyers may be rolled in to plug the Jimmy Fallon-shaped hole on Late Night.

-Meanwhile, you can watch Drew Barrymore and Jimmy Fallon smear each other with makeup.

-Could Stephen Colbert be David Letterman’s successor? Technically, Craig Ferguson‘s contract guarantees him the slot, but as we learned with Conan O’Brien, those guarantees don’t always work out.

-It’s all good in Twilightville. Robert Pattinson is apparently living with Kristen Stewart.

Liam Hemsworth doesn’t want to answer your questions about Miley Cyrus, so don’t even try. Meanwhile, her camp is telling People that they’ve been “inseparable” since he’s been back and they “will continue their wedding plans.” Convinced yet?

Joe Jonas‘ reps insist he doesn’t have a sex tape.  Convinced yet? (The sequel.)

Rihanna just obtained a three-year restraining order against a fan.

-Meanwhile, is Rihanna cheating on Chris Brown with Dane Cook? And did you ever think Dane Cook would be considered the better option?!

-I really liked this article on Veronica Mars and how everyone seems to be forgetting that the third season kinda sucked. (Which, btw, is why I really want a movie. I need a better conclusion.)

-Meanwhile, I’m pretty much Kickstarting all of my entertainment needs these days. I just donated to The Lizzie Bennet Diaries DVD campaign (which reached its 30-day goal in just over 6 hours!).

James McAvoy is not only dreamy, he’s also a real-life hero.

Gwyneth Paltrow says she actually gets to suit up and kick ass in Iron Man 3.

-I quite liked Vulture’s “Ageless Paul Rudd Quiz.” I got 13/15, ’cause I know my Rudd.

Britney Spears is still going strong with her new guy.

-Is Eva Mendes worried that Ryan Gosling might leave her for newly single Rachel McAdams? I don’t blame her. You just can’t compete with this.

-This year’s poster for the Cannes Film Festival is lovely.

-Is Ryan Phillippe hooking up with Ashley Greene? It was really only a matter of time.

-I actually love the thought of Arrow star (and Canadian actor!) Stephen Amell playing Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey. I mean,  I still hate the entire idea of an adaptation, but if someone has to do it…

-Speaking of upcoming movie adaptations, I’m thrilled that Kate Winslet is going to play Jeanine in Divergent!

-Awww! The Despicable Me 2 trailer is adorable!

Is There a Joe Jonas Sex Tape on the Way?


-An unauthorized Joe Jonas sex tape is supposed to hit the internet on April 3. (I can’t really tell you much more about it because I slammed my laptop shut and ran away screaming as soon as I read the words “slapper paddle”…)

-In other lewd news, Shiri Appleby (who recently played Adam’s girlfriend on Girls but who’ll always be Liz from Roswell to me) is the latest celebrity to have a nude photo leak on the interwebs. (NSFW, obvs.)

-Well, this is adorable: Vincent Kartheiser practiced proposing to Alexis Bledel with his Mad Men costars Elisabeth Moss and Jessica Paré.

-Speaking of the Mad Men cast, this is a twist: Elisabeth Moss showed up on a red carpet showing far more cleavage than Christina Hendricks.

Malcolm-Jamal Warner has split with Regina King. Wait, wait, wait…Malcolm-Jamal Warner was dating Regina King?! I’m glad I didn’t know; I would have ‘shipped them so hard…

Dax Shepard wrote an incredibly touching account of his father’s passing. Man, this guy has really won me over in the past few years.

Emma Watson poses (tastefully) topless in a new book celebrating Earth Day.

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart reunited for a “touchy-feely” date night — which included posing for a really terrible photo with a fan. I don’t think KStew was trying to make the gesture she looks like she’s making. Right?

-Meanwhile, The Sun got a preview of RPattz‘s sexy new Dior ad, and their description of it reads like fanfic.

Ryan Gosling says he’s taking a break from acting. First Idris Elba, now him? Jebus, my fake boyfriend list is seriously taking a hit this week!

Amanda Bynes claims she invented the phrase LOLOLOL (which, coincidentally, gives me the LOLs).

-Meanwhile, the Amanda Bynes makeover continues. She tweeted a better view of her cheek piercings.

-There’s a surprising amount of debate over Jimmy Fallon taking over The Tonight Show from Jay Leno. Some think it’s great, while others think it’s just the latest proof that NBC doesn’t know what it’s doing.

-Wanna watch Miley Cyrus twerking in a onsie? (Or do you wanna find out what twerking means first?)

-Oh, and Vanessa Hudgens did a little twerking of her own on Leno this week.

-Meanwhile, Miley thinks she looks like Gollum.

-Oh, and here’s more details about Liam Hemsworth and January Jonesalleged flirtfest.

-Allow me to introduce you to Christian Bale’s combover.

Rebel Wilson says she might be up for a role in the next Hunger Games. Ah, hells ya!

-Here’s a look at all the now-famous actors who once starred on Veronica Mars. I forgot about Jessica Chastain!

-Meanwhile, here are seven spoilers about the movie.

-Border control officers found marijuana on Rihanna‘s tour bus when she was trying to leave Canada. (She was staying at the hotel next to my office this week. I should have tried to sneak onto that bus!)

-Here’s our first look at Beyonce‘s collaboration with H&M. (Too bad H&M was just revealed as the biggest buyer of clothing from Bangladesh, the country with the lowest wages for garment workers.)

-Goddammit, Gwyneth Paltrow! I try to defend you and then you release the most ridiculous GOOP yet. $92 for a plain grey tank-top?

Seth Rogen and James Franco‘s bromance continues; they’re in talks to do yet another movie together.

-AMC just released the first trailer for its new drama, Low Winter Sun.

Melissa McCarthy talks about casting Susan Sarandon in her directorial debut.

-Here’s our first look at Tina Fey playing a “feisty” prison guard in the next Muppets movie.

Ashton Kutcher knows that you think he’s dumb, but apparently it’s all part of his master plan. Or something.

-Meanwhile, Ashton says he’s trying to keep his relationship with Mila Kunis private after being burned in the past.

The Postal Service just released another new song.

-ABC says you can save Happy Endings — by watching it.

-I love this article outlining the 37 reasons why New Girl‘s Nick Miller is the perfect crush.

-The international trailer for the new Star Trek movie heavies up on Benedict Cumberbatch, which is always a good thing.

-As I’ve mentioned a few (trillion) times, I’ve become a bit obsessed with The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, which is wrapping up next week. But today was the big episode that fans waited a year for: the Darcy/Lizzie hookup. I am now made of SQUEEs…
