Angelina Jolie is Unbroken

Angelina Jolie looks luminous on the new cover of EW. That’s one way to distract us from those supposed “fighting” photos.

-In a new interview, Anna Kendrick says lots of good things about how feminism has basically “become a curse word.” “Why are we afraid of that word? It exists and we can’t get rid of it, so let’s fight for it and embrace it.”

-Also, I love this list of the 35 life-changing things Anna Kendrick tweeted in 2014.

-Everyone is talking about how good Amal Clooney looks in this D&G dress, but I’d rather talk about how she just called out the Canadian gov’t for not doing more to help secure Mohammed Fahmy‘s release.

-Being Human’s Meaghan Rath is going to be on New Girl? Yes, please!

Jennifer Aniston and Lisa Kudrow swore at each other on last night’s Kimmel. I like how Kudrow just shrugged whenever she said something especially raunchy. “I have a teenage son.”

Bette Midler‘s takedown of Ariana Grande is glorious! “Trust your talent. You don’t have to make a whore out of yourself to get ahead. You really don’t.”

-The Gambler’ director is refuting those rumours that Mark Wahlberg was a “prick” during filming.

Kim Cattrall says any rumors about more Sex and the City films are “wishful thinking.” But who is wishing for it, exactly?

Christian Bale says he got  jealous when he found out that Ben Affleck was taking over as Batman. Weird. Bale seems like such a rational, level-headed guy.

-Sweet! Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman are going to star in a limited TV series based on Big Little Lies (one of my fave books of 2014 so far). When I first heard they were adapting it I assumed it would be a movie. This is better.

-Watching Love, Actually is a holiday tradition that I look forward to every year, but even I must admit that the Honest Trailer for it is pretty spot on.

-To say critics are hating Horrible Bosses 2 would be an understatement (it’s only at 25% on RottenTomatoes), but the NYT slam of it might be my favourite.

-The full Jurassic World trailer landed today. Yup, Chris Pratt is still hot.

Oscar Isaac just signed on to play a villain in X-Men: Apocalypse. Me likey.

-A new trailer for Far from the Madding Crowd has arrived. I hated that novel in high school, but Carey Mulligan‘s singing might just win me over.

-Sweet! Breaking Bad’s Michelle MacLaren is the official choice to direct the upcoming Wonder Woman movie. I love this news so hard!

-I’m liking the new Pan trailer, starring Hugh Jackman, Garrett Hedlund an (and incredible white) Rooney Mara. It’s directed by Joe Wright, and I’ll pretty much watch anything from him. I still remember seeing his incredible Atonement tracking shot in the theatre and being blown away.
