Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt kickstarted their Oscar campaign with a rare joint interview, in which they call their marriage “very stable” and laugh about her inability to be a conventional wife. Jolie: “Every three months I’ll say ‘Honey, maybe I should learn how to cook?” Pitt: “I just humour it, but really she has no business in the kitchen.”

-Un-cancel your Halloween party, guys. Katie Holmes isn’t really going to be on 20/20 tonight speaking out about Scientology critic Leah Remini. She just gave a written statement in response to Remini’s comments that she was once reprimanded for telling Tom Cruise and Holmes to “get a frickin’ room” after she saw him “forcibly kissing” her.

-I usually despise long dresses with sheer skirts, but this picture of Diane Kruger sums up all of my life goals.

-Prepare to weep: Kim Kardashian has had her most profitable year ever, raking in 28 million dollars.

-I adore the fact that Sandra Bullock keeps nabbing George Clooney roles. Now she’s set to lead an all-female Ocean’s Eleven reboot.

-Yet another new X Files trailer. Is there going to be a second of footage from the premiere that we won’t have seen by the time it airs?

-This is a great piece about why we should all stop watching the Watching Dead. No one will, but still.

-Did anyone actually watch the Bones/Sleepy Hollow crossover? I don’t watch either of those shows but it seems SO WEIRD. The ratings didn’t suck, though.

-In a new interview, Carrie Fisher tells Star Wars: The Force Awakens star Daisy Ridle “Don’t be a slave like I was…You keep fighting against that slave outfit.” Solid advice.

-The next season of Game of Thrones will be delayed, maybe to give Martin more time to write the next book.

-The best part of this piece about Suffragete is how the male actors and their agents chafed against playing supporting roles.

-It’s adorable how Lindsay Lohan still thinks we care.

-This is depressing: ESPN just killed Grantland, which had some of the best entertainment writing I’ve ever seen. It wasn’t a perfect site (their Dr V story basically caused a trans woman to commit suicide), but their podcasts and features didn’t just analyze pop culture, they interrogated it and correlated it to what was happening in society at the time. They’re responsible for some of the most entertaining articles I’ve ever read, whether it was a deep-dive into Julia Roberts’ stardom, a story of isolation in Alaska, or a hilarious recap of the best Jeopardy champ of all time.  RIP, Grantland.

-Here’s the first trailer for My Name is Doris, starring Sally Fields and Max Greenfield. It’s a romcom — and they’re THE COUPLE!!

George and Amal Clooney’s Family Gets a New Addition

George and Amal Clooney adopted a basset hound named Millie.

George and Amal Clooney just adopted the luckiest shelter dog in history.

-I saw Our Brand Is Crisis last night and wasn’t blown away by it, but I do appreciate how much Sandra Bullock is hustling to promote it. Here she is feeding Jimmy Fallon ice cream with prosthetic arms.

Taylor Swift is counter-suing a radio host she says groped her backstage at her concert in 2013.

Justin Bieber walked out of a interview after they asked him to film a video that would “break the internet” and now everyone’s talking about it. So I guess they got their wish after all.

-Here’s an interesting look at why no network has “officially” cancelled a fall show yet.

Jennifer Lopez‘s big TV return is happening in January. (But it’s happening on NBC, so maybe not that big after all.)

Johnny Depp played a prank on Amber Heard “in the coolest way possible,” say E! News. I don’t think those words mean what they think they do.

Rihanna says she’s never even met the rando who’s claiming to be her ex-publicist.

-How NOT to avoid arrest: by yelling “I’m an actor on Days of Our Lives!”

-Like the rest of us, Emilia Clarke models her life after Cate Blanchett.

-I’m sooo curious about this TV blind item (*please be Laurel please be Laurel please be Laurel*)

-I’ve stared at Charlize Theron’s dress for longer than I should probably admit, but I just can’t decide if I like it or not. Either way, it’s impressive that she’s pulling it off.

-You probably have to have a pretty healthy ego to be Beyonce‘s biographer. Doesn’t seem to be an issue for this dude.

Robert Pattinson and FKA Twigs may have called off their engagement.

Selena Gomez is going to star in a Netflix series based on the YA book 13 Reasons Why, which I read but have zero recollection of. (To be fair, that pretty much describes nearly every YA book I’ve ever read.)

Irina Shayk is gorg, but the image L’oreal chose for her new campaign is the worst. She looks like she’s been lobotomized.

Sam Rockwell’s new movie could be really good — or really, really bad.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler Cover EW, Talk Sisters


-Christmas just came early! Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are gracing the latest cover of EW for their holiday movie preview. Says Poehler in the interview: “We are each other’s chosen sister. Like most sisters, we’ve never dated the same guy and we’re great in photo shoots and fittings because we know what will look good on one another.”

Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone didn’t just break up, they broke up “a couple of months ago.” You know what that means? The Summer of Splits is still haunting us!!

-In other split news, Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez have filed their divorce papers, but they’re already fighting over spousal support. Not surprisingly, his “profoundly frightening” “explosive temper” is being blamed for the breakup.

-Here’s an interesting look at how the Walking Dead writers have turned what happened on the latest episode into a no-win scenario for the show. Whatever the outcome, there’s going to be oodles of hate-tweeting on Sunday.

Khloe Kardashian explained that her putting the breaks on her divorce from Lamar Odom doesn’t necessarily mean they’re reconciling. “For medical decisions and a ton of other things, it’s just smarter that it’s put on hold.”

-I haven’t actually listened to the Hamilton cast recording yet because I’m pretty sure it’s going to take over my life immediately, but this story about Jonathan Groff fangirling over Beyonce when she complimented his stage walk is adorable.

Hayley Williams joined forces with CHVRCHES onstage, and it was wonderful.

-What the hell, Raven-Symoné? Are you on a mission to be the most disliked Cosby Show alum?

Congrats to Tig Notaro, who wed girlfriend Stephanie Allynne.

Sandra Bullock is weirdly obsessed with Ross Perot.

-I cringed A LOT when watching this video of Madonna dancing up on Katy Perry.

-Wait, so Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris are still together? I can’t keep up.

Zac Efron and Robert De Niro‘s Dirty Grandpa trailer has arrived. Did anyone else get flashbacks of Efron’s recent troubles when he yelled “I just smoked crack!!” (Also, this movie looks like a bag of garbage.)

-Katniss & co. gear up for battle in the latest Mocking Jay: Part 2 trailer.
