-It’s probably too much to hope that this rumour that Blake Lively named her new baby girl Violet is true. Violet is the name of Ben Affleck‘s eldest daughter, and we all remember those rumours about Blake and Ben during The Town shoot, don’t we?

-The details about Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden’s wedding are pouring in. Nicole Richie and Drew Barrymore were bridesmaids, and Ryan Adams performed.

-The usually private Jeremy Renner is all about showing off his kid now that his divorce is getting messy.

-The new Parks and Rec final season preview hits me right in my feels.

Lena Dunham and Jack Antonoff are not engaged after all.

-Speaking of Girls stars, Allison Williams tells Glamour that the character of Marnie is modelled off of Election’s Tracy Flick. That makes so much sense.

Stephen Fry is engaged to a man 30 years his junior and the internet is clutching their collective pearls.

-I must say, I’m finding Jamie Dornan’s 50 Shades press tour to be completely charming.

-Oy vey. John Mayer and Katy Perry may have reconciled.

-Agent Carter premieres tonight on ABC and the reviews are overwhelmingly positive. (A critic on Twitter called it “Alias set in the ’40s” so I’m in.) Here’s a primer on her comic book roots.

-Speaking of superhero shows, it sounds like I made the right call by dropping Gotham. EW just tore it apart. (“The defining artistic energy driving Gotham is brand management.”)

Anna Kendrick is crediting “weirdos” for giving her a career. You’re welcome!

-I don’t watch Downton Abbey but this video of its actresses playing Cards Against Humanity is great.

-Weird. The Oscars just put Whiplash in the Best Adapted Screenplay race, even though they submitted for Best Original Screenplay.

Rosamund Pike looks lovely on the cover of Vanity Fair.

Marilyn Manson has a “great fear of bathtubs” and never fully takes his underwear off during sex, which he has at least five times a day.

-Here’s the first trailer for Accidental Love, the film starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Biel that director David O. Russell doesn’t want his name on.
