Gillian Anderson is doing some feisty interviews to promote the new season of The Fall, including this one in which she calls out reporters who seem shocked by her character’s one-night stands. God, I love her.

-While everyone’s been focused on speculating about George Clooney’s secret political aspirations, Angelina Jolie has been pretty open about the possibility she’ll ditch acting for a career in politics. She talked about it on Good Morning America earlier this year, and she brings it up again in the latest issue of Vanity Fair.

-As much as I love Spotify (and I really, really do), I get why Taylor Swift dumped them.

-I love that Jon Hamm is not above doing weird comedy podcasts and shows — and being super weird on them. He was on @midnight last night and gushed about cat Tumblrs.

-Sweet jebus. Amanda Seyfried almost lost out on several roles due to being “overweight.”

Anne Hathaway is really embarrassing, says Anne Hathaway.

Claire Danesnew Glamour cover is not super flattering. Much like Homeland, she deserves better.

Jada Pinkett Smith talks about how Will Smith takes sexy pictures of her while she’s sleeping and tries to make it sound like it’s not creepy. It doesn’t work.

-New Girl’s Hannah Simone has no interest in using a dating app. “I think we should just swipe left on Tinder.”

Ed Sheeran “accepted” a marriage proposal from a 19-year-old fan who suffers from an aggressive form of brain cancer. Excuse me, I seem to have something in my eye…

-The People’s Choice Awards nominations were announced today and as per usual they’re mostly bullsh*t, but at least Allison Janney and Anna Faris are hosting.

-Like Game of Throne’s Natalie Dormer, I too suffer from “resting bitch face.”

-People magazine is backtracking on their earlier report that JLaw and Chris Martin have broken up.

-I just started watching Fargo, but I already recognize that Allison Tolman is the best thing about it. This interview promoting her 2-episode arc on The Mindy Project cements my girl crush: “Game of Thrones cast, sorry my fingers were covered in teriyaki sauce when we shook hands.”

-In news that will surprise no one, Mariah Carey allegedly employs a ridiculously expensive glam squad.

-Despite my eternal pledge of devotion to #TeamBen, I adore Scott Foley so I’m glad he’s pulled together such a strong cast (Patrick Wilson, Donald Faison, Amy Acker) for his directorial debut. But does anyone else think this trailer is borderline offensive? I have little patience for the ‘women are shrill nags’ premise.

Jessica Chastain and Oscar Isaac get their gangster on in the new trailer for A Most Violent Year.
