That would make these things so much more palatable. This is PR 101.

-In her new Variety cover, Gwyneth Paltrow talks about how her new husband Brad Falchuk referenced Shakespeare in Love in his vows (“I hope this isn’t too personal but in my husband’s wedding vows, he actually said it’s no coincidence that I played this muse, because that’s who I am to him, and his perception is that’s who I am in real life.

If she had stopped it right there, it would have been perfect. But then she had to go and add “not everything that’s been reported has been accurate, so I think we’re waiting to get all the information.”

-Speaking of stars I like putting their foot in their mouth, William H Macy said at the SAGs: “It’s hard to be a man these days.

Nick Offerman has no use for your Ron Swanson parody account.

-Some hits are starting to emerge from Sundance already. I love that The Miseducation of Cameron Post is getting such raves because that book was wonderful. Lizzie is also sparking buzz, possibly because Kristen Stewart and Chloë Sevigny have hot barn sex and axe-murder a man together.

-This is a really good piece on how some of the pop culture romances we loved when we were young actually glorify or excuse predatory male behaviour.

-The Resident, Fox’s new medical drama starring Matt Czuchry and Emily VanCamp, debuted last night — but all anyone is talking about today is how one of the show’s staff writers managed to get a job there since he was investigated for sexual harassment on his two most recent shows, The Night Shift and Code Black.
