Armie Hammer Had to Convince Wife to Marry Him

Armie Hammer and his wife get cozy on the cover of Town & Country, where he says he had to talk her into marrying him.

Tom Cruise was spotted with his arm around a blonde so now everyone’s speculating that he has a new girlfriend, but that can’t be right. According to IMDB, he doesn’t have a new movie to promote until next year. (Update: she’s a publicist. Of course.)

Full House star Jodie Sweetin just split from her third husband. If it makes her feel better, there’s a viral video floating around of her FH character dancing to Juicy J’s “Bandz A Make Her Dance” today.

-Author Anne Rice stood up for Paula Deen in a Facebook post, in which she called the racist chef a “victim of a lynch mob.” Ugh. (Though this should come as no surprise to anyone who remembers Rice‘s batshit rant against negative Amazon reviews.)

Rosario Dawson gets a Skrillex cut and still manages to look amazing.

-Even though Chris Brown‘s history of abuse against women is well-documented, the owner of the club the singer was at Saturday night insists Brown didn’t push that girl.

-Meanwhile, Chris is facing criminal charges for his alleged involvement in a fender-bender last month.

Beyonce’s tour is now going to last forever.

Leam Neeson is reportedly going to get…wait for it!…$20 million for Taken 3.

Channing Tatum was on GMA this morning and I kept wanting to reach into my television and shave off that douchey goatee. But otherwise, he was charming and sweet and totally sleep-deprived, talking about how fatherhood has suddenly made him excited about poop. He’s also said that they chose to release a baby photo themselves so there wouldn’t be a paparazzi price on the kid’s head.

-This video of Andrew Garfield holding a baby on the set of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will make your uterus shiver.

-There are also some new photos of Paul Giamatti making crazy faces on the set of The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Michelle Trachtenberg is holding a baby in the new still from Killing Kennedy, which reminds me of my favourite Gossip Girl blooper of all time.

-Here’s a rundown of the moving speech Angelina Jolie gave to the UN Security Council yesterday about war-zone rape.

Under the Dome debuted huge last night with 13.14 million viewers, making it the most-watched summer premiere on any network since 2007. Go, Dean Norris!

-Speaking of Breaking Bad cast members, AMC just released a poster for its final season. So I guess I need to give up the dream that Walt is going to transform back into a  milquetoast teddy bear, huh?

Justin Bieber continues to build a one-man case for why adding video to Instagram is a bad idea. He and his manager posted a lip-synch to “I Will Always Love You.”

-He also got his smooch on with a Vegas waitress. I’m surprised he didn’t Instagram it.

-Meanwhile, Justin and his crew were banned from an indoor skydiving facility (wait, is that a thing? I want to go!), for agreeing to post a photo at the club to his Instagram in exchange for a free visit, and then reneging.  Also, his gang were “disrespectful” and did dreadful things such as “made a mess around the sink, then threw his paper towel on the ground while directly looking at an employee.” The horror!

-Speaking of Justin, Bill Hader was on the Howard Stern Show this week and talked about the Biebz‘s ridiculous entourage when he hosted SNL. He also called one of his cut sketches with Justin “the greatest trainwreck ever.”

-Despite reports, this baby is a rando and not actually Kanye West and Kim Kardashian‘s spawn. Lucky kid.

-Also, Kanye says that he’s the creative director of the upcoming movie adaptation of The Jetsons. Wait, what?

-I’m digging EW’s new “Likability Index,” even though it’s basically a rip-off of NY Mag’s Approval Index, but just for TV characters.

-New photos from the set of Walking Dead hint that Rick is about to face the same dilemma as his comic book character. (Spoilery!)

-This is what Christie Brinkley looks like in a swimsuit at 59. I’m giving up on life.

MIA debuted a new video today, which Mindy Kalling just called “the platonic ideal of what I want my lifestyle to look like.” I totally get that.

-Well, this is brilliant marketing: Jason Priestley is helping Tim Hortons judge their new doughnut contest.

Gillian Anderson‘s new British series The Fall is coming to Bravo July 7, which is awesome. It debuted on Netflix around the same time as Arrested Development but got lost in the shuffle. Everything I’ve read about it from critics was positive, plus it’s only 5 episodes — which is about all the commitment I can handle right now.

Rihanna says the reporter who called her a “toxic role model” is just bitter.

Katy Perry and John Mayer were photographed together again in NYC — this time holding hands.

-The always-humble Drake decided to announce his new album by drinking from a Grammy.

-Behold: the ugliest celebrity engagement ring in history.

Ellen Page is not super happy that Sony seemingly modelled a character after her in Last of Us.

-The season premiere of Drunk History features Adam Scott as John Wilkes Booth, Bob Odenkirk as Richard Nixon, Jack Black as Elvis, and Dave Grohl as one of Elvis’s entourage.

-I enjoyed this takedown of Stephan Jenkins from Third Eye Blind way too much. “He’s just a net negative person.”

-Is Miley Cyrus using Twitter to shame her father into admitting an affair?

Lionel Richie has been reduced to starring in beer ads. At least it’s funny.

Heidi Klum is de-Sealing her body.

-Aw crap. Paramount is already thinking of making a World War Z sequel. This wouldn’t be so bad if the movie had actually stuck with its original ending. (Spoilery!)

Idris Elba was on Letterman last night and fj%od#*oijw##eej…sorry, my keyboard just got gummed up by drool.

-Meanwhile a new, Idris-heavy trailer for Pacific Rim has landed. I’m really worried about this thing bombing, especially now that World War Z didn’t do as badly as expected. If people are only going to go to one apocalypse movie per summer, most already picked the wrong one.

Victoria Beckham Cracks a Rare Smile for David


David Beckham just posted a rather adorable photo of Victoria on Facebook with the rather adorable caption “See I told you she smiles.”

Amanda Bynes had a nose job this weekend, and is promising to share some video about it. Um, goodie?

-Despite a rumored proposal over the weekend, Kanye West has yet to propose to Kim Kardashian.

-Speaking of Kanye, his new interview in W is long but well worth your time. The best part is when he rails against an unnamed designer for inviting him to a fashion show  on the condition he not attend any other shows. “Nobody can tell me where I can and can’t go. Man, I’m the No. 1 living and breathing rock star. I am Axl Rose; I am Jim Morrison; I am Jimi Hendrix.” West is not smiling as he says this, and his voice is getting louder with each sentence. “You can’t say that you love music and then say that Kanye West can’t come to your show! To even think they could tell me where I could and couldn’t go is just ludicrous. It’s blasphemous—to rock ’n’ roll, and to music.” Amazing. My other favourite quote? “Anyone who meets me for the first time and is not slightly nervous is completely full of shit.” Ok, I’ll stop now. Just go read the whole thing. I’ll wait.

-Of all the ridiculous conspiracy theories surrounding the final season of Mad Men, this one might just be my fave.

Angelina Jolie was all business today at her debut at the UN Security Council, urging world leaders to do more to combat warzone rapes.

-Last week, Kristen Stewart went to a Hooters. This week, she got a tattoo. Honey, do you have some unresolved daddy issues you’d like to discuss?

Robert Pattinson just went up a couple of notches in my books now that Ellen Page showed up to his birthday party. (But the presence of Fifty Shades author EL James might knock him back down.)

-Speaking of EL JamesCharles Dance (aka Game of ThronesTywin Lannister) read an excerpt of Fifty Shades of Grey on a British game show. Cripes, I love that they can get away with saying things like “kinky f*ckery” on network TV.

-In other Game of Thrones news, it takes a lot (A LOT) for me to see photos of Nicolaj Coster-Waldau (aka Jamie Lannister) and notice anything besides his pretty, pretty face, but Cameron Diaz’s Spanx is pulling my focus in these pics from the set of their new movie.

Rihanna is in Amsterdam and (according to her Instagram) seems to be enjoying its local pleasures. (Maybe that’s why the topless photos soon followed.)

Chris O’Dowd freaked Kristen Wiig out by accidentally eating a fly when then were doing a talk show together.

Demi Lovato thanked her fans for the outpouring of Twitter love following the death of her father.

Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx showed off their salsa moves on Univision.

-I’m not sure how Sandra Bullock‘s wardrobe choices for The Heat‘s promo tour led to her being accused of “pulling a Jennifer Aniston,” but in any case, she looks great.

-Also, The Heat‘s new poster is killer. I really hope this movie is funnier than the most recent trailers suggest.

-In case you were wondering, Kate Gosselin is still an idiot.

Star Wars creator George Lucas married his longtime girlfriend at Skywalker Ranch this weekend.

-The CW is airing a Hunger Games-style reality show this summer? Uh, they’ve seen the movie, right?

Justin Bieber lost another monkey. Why do people keep giving him monkeys?!

-Meanwhile, the Biebz took a tumble this weekend and Instagramed a video showing off his injuries.

Jim Carrey spent the weekend Tweeting about how he doesn’t want to do any press for Kick-Ass 2 because “in all good conscience” he doesn’t think he can “support that level of violence” post-Sandy Hook. That’s all well and good, but now everyone’s wondering if he thinks in all good conscience that he can cash his Kick-Ass 2 paycheque.

Katy Perry and John Mayer reportedly enjoyed a “cuddly” date in NYC. So that’s still happening.

This GIF of Morgan Freeman on Fallon is everything.

Miranda Kerr is talking some crap about how the secret to a great marriage is all about traditional gender roles and making your husband “feel important when you ask for their help.”  Uh huh. And just how important does your husband feel when you pull stuff like this?

Gossip Girl‘s Kelly Rutherford continues to endure Hollywood’s nastiest divorce. She just had to file for bankruptcy amidst her custody battle.

Anthony Kiedis brawled with a Rolling Stone security guard who assumed he was just another greasy fan.

-The next time you think your social life is lame, just remember this: Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez were recently spotted at a Chili’s.

Aaron Carter claims he was attacked by a gang of vicious NKOTB fans. No, really.

-Sweet! A sequel to The Trip has begun filming.

Miley Cyrus‘ parents don’t really look like a couple who just announced their divorce plans.

-Speaking of marital status, the guy who plays Adam on Girls just got hitched.

-The second trailer has landed for Prince Avalanche, starring Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch.

Kim Kardashian and Kayne West’s (Real) Baby Name Revealed


Kim Kardashian and Kayne West‘s baby is called North. As in North West. They’re calling her Nori for short, which isn’t quite so terrible, I guess.

Anna Wintour apparently blessed the name, if that helps. (It doesn’t.)

Madonna was on GMA this morning and seemed surprisingly laid back and fun. When asked how her son Rocco has changed since the footage from her new concert film, she said, “He’s a foot taller, he’s getting facial hair, he’s looking at girls’ butts. It’s terrible!”

Paula Deen skipped her scheduled appearance on Today this morning, and Matt Lauer was clearly not happy about it.

-Meanwhile, Paula Deen released a video apology. It’s weirdly cut, which means she couldn’t get through it in one take. Maybe that’s why she immediately recorded another one.

-It didn’t work: the Food Network just fired her.

-Despite being spotted wearing a gold band, Diane Kruger‘s camp insists the actress is not engaged to Joshua Jackson.

Heather Locklear says that hanging out with Tom Cruise in the ’80s meant watching him do his Risky Business moves on dance floors. I want to go to there!

Reese Witherspoon is suing a jewellry company for using her face to sell their cheap knockoffs.

-Meanwhile, Reese hung out with Natalie Portman at a benefit gala last night.

Drake tried to talk his way into the Miami Heat’s locker room after game 7 and was DENIED.

-Meanwhile, Justin Bieber was denied entry into the Heat’s victory party.

Justin seems to be riding high in his first Instagram video.

-Well, this made me cry. Damn you interwebs!

Scarlett Johansson is set to replace Samantha Morton in Spike Jonze‘s new movie. I can’t imagine a film in which those two are interchangeable.

-I love Grantland’s scrutiny of Aaron Sorkin‘s Newsroom comments.

-Is it weird that I’m kind of disappointed whenever Jake Gyllenhaal dates a swimsuit model? I guess it’s better than Taylor Swift, but still. I strangely expect more from him.

-Sweet! Parks and Recreation will kick off their next season with a special one-hour episode set in London.

-In terms of apologies, Kickstarter just wrote a pretty damn good one.

-It’s adorable that people think Matthew Weiner will actually reveal anything about Mad Men‘s series finale. This is the guy who includes letters to critics with the screener of the every season premiere (the only episode he allows to screen in advance), begging them not to reveal things like which year the season takes place in.

-Meanwhile, the guy who plays Bob Benson on Mad Men talks about all those fan conspiracy theories.

Nicki Minaj posted a topless pic on Instagram for #ThrowbackThursday. I don’t think she fully understands the concept.

Robyn has finally released a video for “You Should Know Better.”

-What if Game of Thrones featured Zooey Deschanel as Daenerys, Michael Cera Joffrey as and Aubrey Plaza as Ygritte? This pitch-perfect parody answers just that.

Jake Johnson and Olivia Wilde play Drinking Buddies in their new, adorable-looking movie.
