Jennifer Lawrence Had A Meltdown on Oscar Night Due To “A Birth Control Confusion”

Jennifer Lawrence says she had a meltdown the night she won an Oscar because she was hormonal because of “a birth control confusion,” her friend’s inability to order the right pizza, and her brother’s attempts to arm-wrestle Matthew McConaughey.  Understandable.

JLaw says her buddy Bradley Cooper‘s butt sweats before his armpits do. Note to self: never be buddies with JLaw.

-Also, Chris Rock criticized Jennifer Lawrence’s gender pay gap remarks. “Black women have the hardest gig in show business. You hear Jennifer Lawrence complaining about getting paid less because she’s a woman — if she was black, she’d really have something to complain about.” Well, he’s not wrong.

-Meanwhile, this is what it’s like for white dudes in Hollywood.

Jerry Seinfeld somehow scored President Obama for his new season of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. The episode is pretty great, as are the behind-the-scenes moments.

Katy Perry and John Mayer are still together? Huh.

Taylor Swift is getting down ‘n dirty in her “Out of The Woods” video, which premieres tonight.

George Clooney and Julia Roberts are teaming up again for a new movie called Money Monster.

-Which famous dude is NOT in St. Barts right now? George Lucas, Leonardo DiCaprio, Stephen Amell, Harry Styles, Prince, Tobey Maguire, Paul McCartney and Robin Thicke are all vacationing there.

George Lucas hated the nostalgic appeal of The Force Awakens, says he sold the franchise rights to “white slavers.”
This is a great response to the the New York Post writer who thinks Carrie Fisher should be grateful to Disney for telling her to lose weight.

Mariah Carey was spotted sporting a huge diamond ring, sparking engagement rumours.

-As I mentioned in our Worst TV of 2015 roundup, I hate that I keep getting sucked back into The Walking Dead, only to be disappointed. I’m making a clean break. This preview does nothing for me, so that helps. Of course, when Jeffrey Dean Morgan‘s first episode airs, all bets may be off. I’m only human!

-Today’s NY Daily News cover on Bill Cosby is awesome.

-I’m not a huge Carrie Underwood fan, but her carpool karaoke segment with James Corden was kind of great.

-I’m pleasantly surprised that the first two episodes critics have seen of Legends Of Tomorrow are getting rave reviews. It’s being compared to The Avengers (but with more sadness), and described as the best DC pilot yet.

Rebel Wilson and Mark Strong star get their spy on in The Brothers Grimsby trailer.

Bill Cosby Charged with Sexual Assault; See His Mugshot

-It actually happened. Bill Cosby was charged today with second-degree felony on a 2004 sexual assault charge. His bail has been set at $1 million. I have to say, there was something immensely satisfying about watching his perp walk.

-The Toronto woman who accused him, Andrea Constand, sued the former prosecutor for defamation a few months ago (during an election year!). She went after Cosby and the prosecutor who wouldn’t charge him for more than a decade like a goddamn boss.

-In other court news, an LAPD source says Mark Salling had images of girls under 10 on his computer. Sigh.

-Here come the Gwen Stefani baby rumours. I’m not believing this because A) she’s 46, B) it comes from In Touch, and C) did I mention she’s 46?

Jeremy Renner finalized his divorce from Sonni Pacheco on Monday, and he has to pay $13,000 a month in child support. Looks like someone needs to flip more houses!

-Wait, Matthew Goode is shooting a wine show?! Between this and Stephen Amell‘s Dudes Being Dudes in Wine Country, it’s a really good time to be a fan of watching hot famous guys getting drunk.

Sarah Silverman is standing by her “Jesus was gender fluid” tweet because she’s a brave, brave soul.

Sia’s 40th birthday party was attended by Jennifer Aniston, Jeff Probst, Sandra Bullock, and some drag queens.

-I didn’t even know that Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling were starring in a movie called La La Land but the first photo from it has been released and I already want to give it all my money.
 -Oh hey, Matt Bomer on the cover of Men’s Fitness. How you doin’?

-Is any celebrity photographed on the beach more than Katie Cassidy? She must have all coastal paps on speed dial at this point.

-No photo has ever been so perfectly captioned.

Blake Lively gave Ryan Reynolds a stuffed Deadpool, dressed in assless leather chaps and holding a chimichanga while riding a unicorn. Fine, you win this round, Serena!

-I really doubt Jennifer Garner is dating Patrick Dempsey. I mean, did she forget what he did to her in Valentine’s Day? Um, not that I’ve seen that movie. Repeatedly.

-So how many times have y’all watched Aretha making Obama cry with “Natural Woman”? I’m up to six…teen.

Benicio Del Toro and Tim Robbins are war zone rescue workers in the new trailer for A Perfect Day.

-Oh god. Glee star Mark Salling was arrested this morning for possession of child porn.

Russell Crowe fought with Virgin Australia after his hoverboards were refused as luggage. Celebs, they’re just like us!

Kristen Bell is going to do some work on an upcoming episode of iZombie, which is all kinds of awesome.

Jennifer Garner is not taking Ben Affleck back. It’s a Christmas miracle!

-Is Guy Ritchie turning Madonna‘s son against her? The fact that the 15-year-old had to be ordered to spend xmas with his mom isn’t a good sign. Remember when he was a cute lil b-boy at his mom’s concerts?

-This warms the heart: Joss Whedon is donating up to $100,000 to Planned Parenthood, and Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher are donating $1 million to Syrian victims.

Leslie Jones says she confronted Kenan Thompson over his comments about diversity on SNL, and now he’s “possibly my best friend on the show.”

-Fox has released a 21-minute preview of The X Files reboot. I’m not going to watch, but I’m just happy it exists!

-I’ve been away for a while. Do we have any traction on the rumours of Courteney Cox and Matthew Perry dating? Anything?!

-The eyes have it in Orphan Black’s new teaser trailer for season 4.

Ruby Rose has big news, but it’s not about her uterus.

Britney Spears’s Instagram has become a fascinating journey through her mind.

-Has there ever been a more delightful press tour than the Star Wars one? Look at this. And this. And this. I mean, really.

-Meanwhile, The Force Awakens has now raked in $1.16B worldwide.

-Also, Carrie Fisher is pretty done with y’all talking about whether or not she’s aged well.

-I fell down a rabbit hole over the holidays and watched all of Netflix’s Making a Murderer, which is insanely engrossing. I’m not alone; Alec Baldwin live-tweeted his viewing. HBO & PBS both passed on the series a few years ago, long before we all caught Serial fever. Now hacktivists Anonymous have taken up the cause (and introduced a new tow truck theory).

Hugh Jackman: kicking my “awwws” into overdrive once again.

-This is a good/sad piece on why so many excellent pop culture sites died in 2015.

-Anyone else think it’s hilarious that The Hateful Eight pirated screener traced back to a top Hollywood exec?

-I stopped watching Homeland after they had one perfect season and then torpedoed all my good feelings about it with subsequent episodes, but Mandy Patinkin’s passionate rant on Colbert about what that show has taught him about North Americans’ reactions to Muslims is pretty incredible.

Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani were inseparable over the holidays.

-This fascinates (but doesn’t surprise) me: Agent Carter and Supergirl’s viewers are evenly split between men and women.

-The holidays brought us not one, but two new Deadpool trailers (including this very NSFW red band one):
