Chris Hemsworth Had “No Empathy” for Liam’s Failed Relationships

Chris Hemsworth GQ

-Way to crush my brodreams, Chris Hemsworth! In his new GQ interview, he talks about watching his little brother flail in life. “I’ve watched Liam do things I did at his age. Like being in relationships he shouldn’t be in, or being reckless just to prove a point. And I had no empathy. My mom had to remind me I was the same way.”

-Congrats to Eddie Redmayne, who just got married.

Zooey Deschanel posted a video of her New Girl costar Max Greenfield lip-synching to Rihanna while wearing a fat suit, and it’s everything.

Angelina Jolie contracted chickenpox; still looks adorable.

Leighton Meester is probably the only cast member who’s been reluctant to publicly bad-mouth Gossip Girl since it ended, which I admire. But I also admire her saying that she hopes young girls don’t idolize the relationship between Chuck and Blair because “there was some domestic violence in there.” #DAIRforever

-God bless Diane Kruger‘s Instagram. I really needed this today.

-I did not, however, appreciate Miley Cyrus‘ latest Instagram adventure. Gag.

-Also, Justin Bieber and Chris Brown thought it would be funny and not at all distasteful to post a choking photo. They were wrong.

Maisie Williams has issues with Emma Watson‘s “first-world feminism.

-So Barbara Walters has named Amal Alamuddin the most fascinating person of the year — not because she’s a kick-ass human rights lawyer with a list of accomplishments miles long, but because getting George Clooney down the aisle “was really one of the greatest achievements in human history.” No, really.

-Speaking of George, the latest Sony leak reveals that he really, really hates bad reviews (but also seems to acknowledge that The Monuments Men kinda blew).

-Also leaked: Cameron Crowe’s upcoming movie with Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone was labelled “ridiculous,” Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence make less money than their male co-stars, Sony execs are worried about how bad The Interview is, and Channing Tatum’s emails are everything you’d want a Channing Tatum email to be!

-There’s a very interesting debate happening on whether or not the press should be reporting on the Sony leaks.  Aaron Sorkin says no (and while I agree with some of his points, I don’t understand how he can argue that the emails aren’t “newsworthy.”) For smart takes from the other side of the debate, read here, here and here.

-If you thought Gilmore Girls on Netflix was an evil time suck, just wait until the entire Friends library  lands in January.

Mel B’s husband slammed rumours he had anything to do with those bruises she was sporting on The X Factor.

Krysten Ritter is geeking out over the chance to work with a female showrunner on the upcoming Jessica Jones series. Man, I heart her.

-Speaking of female showrunners, this interview with Jane the Virgin’s is so thoughtful. That show’s definitely going to make my year-end Best Of list.

-I really love Vulture’s annual “Toughest Scene I Wrote” series. First up is Richard Linklater talking about that final Boyhood moment.

Rose McGowan talked about stepping away from acting because she was sick of being constantly sexualized. She was recently on an episode of the Chicks Who Script podcast and I was kind of impressed.

Jonathan Rhys Meyers convinced someone to marry his crazy eyes.

Bill Cosby briefly broke his silence and now everyone’s wishing he hadn’t. Also, Camille Cosby issued a statement comparing the allegations to the UVA rape story. ::headdesk::

-Shake it off! Taylor Swift and Beyonce danced together at Justin Timberlake’s concert.

-Here’s Ashton KutcherMila Kunis and Rihanna starring in a fake trailer that appears in the new Annie, which is undoubtedly more entertaining than Annie will be.

-Charming: Beyoncé’s estranged dad tried to shop a Destiny’s Child biopic.

-It’s a good sign that this new clip from Agent Carter passes the Bechdal Test.

-I didn’t really understand why everyone was so upset when HBO announced they were remastering The Wire, but I get it now that Fox is remastering Buffy and there are crew members in some shots.

Jon Hamm has never signed on to play a superhero because he doesn’t want to be stuck in a contract until he’s 50. Also, we already kind of know how he’d fill out the tights.

-Whoa, the BBC is turning the book Wolf Hall into a limited series? I want.

Chris Hemsworth and Viola Davis will save you from cyberterrorists in the new trailer for Blackhat.

Gillian Anderson is doing a book tour for the sci-fi novel she co-wrote, and it’s been a goddamn delight. She teased a new X Files movie, threw her hat in the ring for Ghostbusters 3, and was totally charming during this Buzzfeed quiz.

-Round three! Martha Stewart mocked Gwyneth Paltrow with a ‘conscious coupling’ magazine spread.

-Speaking of lifestyle guru wannabes, Blake Lively‘s baby shower looks like hipster hell.

-Meanwhile, Gawker wrote a post criticizing Blake’s tone-deaf Preserve essay on the American South, and now her lawyer wants them to take post down.

Zac Efron has a new girlfriend and eyebrows are being raised everywhere.

Sofia Coppola and Bill Murray are reuniting for a Christmas special.

-Meanwhile, Bill Murray just called Oscar season a virus: “I feel like the Statue of Liberty covered in maggots.” Tell us how you really feel!

-I sat next to Robert Downey Jr. at a restaurant this weekend (where he was dining with Robert DeNiro), and he seemed pretty happy for a guy whose new movie was bombing at the weekend box office. Maybe because he knew news was about to break that he would have a major role in the next Captain America movie.

-I also saw Mindy Kaling at a Vulture panel (it was a REALLY good weekend), where she addressed rumours that she’d be in Ghostbusters 3.

-Weird new couple alert: Kat Dennings and Josh Groban are dating. At least he seems to realize how lucky he is.

-In her new book, Amy Poehler opens up about her experiences with cocaine, ecstasy and marijuana, as well as her divorce from Will Arnett.

Shia LaBeouf‘s apology tour is well underway. He was admittedly charming talking about his Cabaret arrest on Kimmel last night, but it was still kind of skeevy. Couldn’t he show just like, a whiff of regret?

-Following The Walking Dead’s insane new ratings record, I really liked this article about how horrific TV has gone mainstream. (If only that would translate into more people watching Hannibal…)

-This is great: the real Lorde performed the fake Lorde’s “I Am Lorde Ya Ya Ya” from South Park.

-I’m actually kind of surprised that Amal Alamuddin took George’s last name.

-A five-year-old proposed to Demi Lovato during her concert this weekend and it was full of adorabs.

-Sadness: Kesha has sued star producer Dr. Luke, claiming he sexually and physically assaulted her for years, while he claims she’s trying to extort him with her lawsuit and sued her right back.

Brad Pitt revealed he’s been a gun owner since kindergarten and says he doesn’t  feel safe without a gun in the house. Sigh.

-Hep C from the Gilmore Girls reunited for a surprise gig and it makes me so stupidly happy.

-Ugh. Chris Brown says that ebola is ‘a form of population control.’

-Backstage at SNL, Seth Rogen ran into the NBC exec who cancelled Freaks & Geeks and gave him a piece of his mind.

-Also making me stupidly happy: Channing Tatum says he has dance battles with Jenna Dewan every morning. That’s exactly how I pictured their marriage.

Claire Danes taught Cookie Monster how to make a diagram on Sesame Street.

Dax Shepard told Conan O’Brien about the time he asked wife Kristen Bell to shave his butt.

-A new teaser for Tomorrowland, starring George Clooney and Britt Robertson, debuted at NY Comic Con.

Cary Elwes wrote a book about the making of The Princess Bride (why am I not reading it RIGHT NOW??!), and he revealed some tidbits from it during his Reddit AMA.

-A new trailer for the final season of The Newsroom has landed. It’s even more pompous and speechifying than usual. I think there’s just too much good TV for me to catch up on right now to hate-watch this season.

-Speaking of good TV, here’s some Arrow scoop. I’m more excited than the return of this show than I was about the debut of any new ones. And according to this story, this is the perfect time to jump in if you’ve never watched it. So jump already and feel the Olicity feels!

-There are a lot of good Bill Murray stories out there, but this one is pretty great.

-It’s kill-or-be-killed in this new clip from Brad Pitt‘s Fury.

Ellen Pompeo just announced the birth of her daughter Sienna May, born via surrogate.

-Dan Harmon says the tentative date for Community’s return is  Jan 27.

-Speaking of Community peeps, Donald Glover unleashed a surprise new mixtape this week.

-I really want Sarah Jessica Parker’s pants.

-I do not, however, want Lady Gaga‘s terrible, terrible new tattoo.

Katherine Heigl really, really wants you to watch her new show. How else do you explain this?

BJ Novak calls his relationship with Mindy Kaling “complicated.” Just marry her already!

Blake Shelton‘s response to the latest tabloid rumours about his marriage? “Eat a dick.”

Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie will star in a TV series based on a John le Carré book. I like all of those words!

Bradley Cooper contemplates killing a kid in first trailer for Clint Eastwood‘s American Sniper. Eesh. I’m not sure I’m ready for serious Oscar bait-y movies yet.
