–Zoe Saldana looks great on the cover of Flare. In the interview (in which the editor called “the most candid we’ve ever run”), she rails against anti-feminist stereotypes, saying “Women aren’t wimpy. They don’t complain all the time. They can open up jars! They can fucking save the day! They can support their whole family. They can support their men. Half of my friends make more money than their male partners.”
-Remember Britney Spears’ horrible ex-manager Sam Lufti? He just leaked some old texts that she allegedly sent, proving he’s still horrible.

-Two men are accused of breaking into and robbing Keri Russell‘s house while she was asleep. Something tells me this wouldn’t have happened if Ben were there.
–Adam Levine’s new Kmart commercial makes us question his hygiene. He does the sniff test on his shirts? He doesn’t brush his teeth? Looks like the Sexiest Man Alive title is going to someone’s head.
–Nigella Lawson has disputed her ex-husband’s story that he was checking her nose for coke in those infamous photos. She’s saying it happened because she remarked on a cute baby nearby and he grabbed her by the throat and said, “I am the only person you should be concerned with. I am the only person who should be giving you pleasure.” Ugh.
–Mandy Patinkin showed off his freshly shaven face on Live with Kelly & Michael this morning.
-I missed this last week, but Jimmy Fallon, Rashida Jones and Carrie Underwood performed Thanksgiving-themed karaoke.
-Speaking of Carrie Underwood, here’s a Sound of Music drinking game, which is pretty much the only way anyone’s going to make it through the show tonight.
-From their analysis of The Good Wife’s take on technology to their assertion that this season’s Scandal is an exploration of free will, I’m really starting to dig Buzzfeed’s TV coverage. (I mean, I’m mainly going to continue going there to read things like 23 Reasons To Drink More Wine, but still…)
-Speaking of TV criticism, I really liked this article in praise of quitting shows.
-Here’s our first look at IFC’s miniseries The Spoils of Babylon, starring Tobey Maguire, Kristen Wiig and Tim Robbins. I know it’s supposed to be funny but I…don’t…get it.

-Even as vegans, Jay Z and Beyonce are still eating better than the rest of us.
-The Skyrim reference is lost on me in this Vine, but the power of Stephen Amell‘s abs are not.

-A new Pompeii trailer has arrived. Hey, Kit Harrington! I forgot all about you!
-Speaking of new trailers, here’s the first one for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, with Jamie Foxx as Electro. I passionately defended the last Spider-Man film at work this morning which is weird, considering I don’t remember loving it all that much at the time.
