–Kristen Stewart looks awesome on the cover of V (and shows off her butt in the photo spread) but I’m way too tired to try to decipher that nonsense interview. On her film Personal Shopper’s portrayal of technology, she says “When you speak to someone on the phone, that is a decipherable, understandable exchange. But with text and social media, it’s essentially a dialogue with yourself and your interpretation of a shadow.” Sure thing.
–Emma Watson’s Beauty and the Beast press tour is intense. She appeared (virtually) to field questions from strangers in New York’s Grand Central Terminal.
-Meanwhile, Emma has a good reason for not wanting to take selfies with fans.

-I listened to Lorde’s new song a lot today. Like, A LOT.
-Ouch. Matt Damon‘s The Great Wall likely will end up with losses of more than $75M.
-Nothing you read today will be as amusing as Leighton Meester’s reaction to a reporter explaining vaginal steaming to her. I’m even going to give her a pass (this time) for refusing to answer Gossip Girl questions.
-I’m glad Reese Witherspoon is getting praise for what she’s doing on Big Little Lies. It might be my favourite performance from her.
–John Mellencamp says of ex Meg Ryan “She hates me to death…and I don’t blame her.” WYD?

–Brad Pitt didn’t attend the Oscars because he was too busy sculpting. Sadly, not a euphemism.
–Jennifer Lopez and Jimmy Fallon‘s dance battle was very cute.
-Meanwhile, JLo is taking a stand against the paparazzi.
-Sweet: Amy Acker has booked the leading role in Fox’s Marvel mutant pilot. You go, Fred!
–Jaden Smith has shared some more “facts” about the universe.
-Here’s our first look at Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino’s new Amazon pilot.
-Speaking of Amazon, Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner‘s Amazon show will be an anthology series about the Romanovs. And yes, Weiner, David O. Russell and Woody Allen all got straight-to-series orders from Amazon, but Amy Sherman-Palladino has to do pilot season. Sigh.
–Katie Holmes looks lovely on the cover of Town and Country.
–Belle prepares to shimmy her way to freedom in a new Beauty and the Beast clip.
