-In his GQ cover storyJon Hamm says Matthew Weiner faked out the cast by writing a false ending to Mad Men. As long as the real one includes some variation of Peggy getting promoted, firing everyone but Stan, and eventually ruling the world, I’m good.

Mindy Kaling prefers Dawson over Pacey and now I don’t even know if I want to watch her season finale tonight.

-It looks like Miley Cyrus and Patrick Schwarzenegger have gotten over that whole ‘handsy photo with someone who isn’t you’ thing.

Angelina Jolie wrote a powerful new New York Times op-ed about having her ovaries removed last week.

-Famous people are tweeting their support for her.

-The Russo brothers are officially directing the Avengers: Infinity War movies. They already have the bona fides, since they did Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Cate Blanchett just quoted Tina Fey and it’s the confluence of everything that is right and good in this world.

-Oh goodie. Justin Bieber is the latest recruit in Leonardo DiCaprio‘s Pussy Posse.

James Corden‘s talk show debuted last night, and it fits right into late night’s recent Fallonization by nice, white guys. But hey, the bit where he got Tom Hanks to re-enact all his films in 7 minutes was solid.

-I spent a good portion of the day twitter squealing about The X Files reboot, which sounds like it’ll be a mix of myth and standalone eps. The X Files was the first thing I ever looked up on the Internet. Like, ever. I remember my brother was trying to get me out of his hair and was all “sit here and just type in whatever,” and I stumbled upon XF episode guides, which blew my mind. Because – outside of tiny blurbs in the TV Guide – that info wasn’t really available. The whole thing was a “Holy crap, I just found my people!” moment.

-There’s a big debate about whether one needs to watch the terrible last movie or catch up on the even worse final seasons before the reboot, but I’m following Gillian Anderson‘s lead. She has zero recollection of what happened on the show — even during its heyday. It’s kind of adorable.

-It was such a good day to be a fangirl on Twitter. This hilarious article detailing every Buffy debate sparked even more.

George Clooney and Amal took her awesome coat to dinner last night.

-Here’s the first trailer for Michael Fassbender’s Slow West, which everyone loved a Sundance.
