Gwyneth Paltrow: The Cursing Cook

Gwyneth Paltrow GOOP

Gwyneth Paltrow tried to make us care about her adventures in baking by adding cutesy, swear-filled speech bubbles in the latest GOOP. It didn’t work.

-I couldn’t even get through all of J.Lo and Iggy Azalea’s new video. Between this and “Anaconda,” I need a booty break.

-The New York Times television critic wrote an offensively terrible piece about Shonda Rhimes’ new show and the evolution of black female characters on television. There’s a lot of cringe-inducing sentiments: that Shonda only relates to her “angry, black women” characters, that Nicole Beharie is merely a “sidekick” on Sleepy Hollow, that Shonda created How To Get Away With Murder (she’s the producer; the creator is this white dude), etc. Many, many people much smarter than me have already penned rebuttals — including Shonda herself.

-Awww: Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet have pledged to help the last living Titanic survivor pay for her nursing home fees. She really does make him a better person, huh?

Ryan Gosling is “madly in love” with his new daughter, says a source. (Some day I’d love to read an article where the source says, “I dunno. He actually seems pretty ‘meh’ about the whole thing.”)

-It looks like Ryan Reynolds may get another shot at playing a superhero thanks to that leaked Deadpool footage.

Clay Aiken is waving the victim-blaming flag, saying celebs whose nude photos were hacked got what they deserved. Sigh.

Angelina Jolie will continue to work behind the camera. She just signed on to direct a biopic titled Africa.

-Oh jesus. Not only is Matthew McConaughey not going to be in Magic Mike XXL, but now Andie MacDowell has joined the cast. Does no one remember that she almost single-handedly ruined Four Weddings and a Funeral?!

Jon Hamm, Connie Britton, Kerry Washington and more star in new White House PSA against sexual assault.

Jimmy Fallon‘s version of Family Feud is so much better than the real thing.

-Meanwhile, Billy Crystal and Jimmy Fallon traded wonderful stories about Robin Williams last night.

-I can’t decide if I love Kate Hudson’s pants or I hate them, but either way I’m totally mesmerized.

-There are a ton of new rom-com-inspired sitcoms debuting this month. You should just skip them all and watch You’re The Worst instead.

-Oh geez. The Maze Runner’star Will Poulter called out a Toronto critic for his scathing movie review.

-Here’s the trailer for Tim Burton’s Big Eyes (aka – Amy Adams’ Oscar submission).
