-According to Star magazine (so take it with a giant salt lick), David Duchovny is hooking up with Minnie Driver, who played his love interest in Return To Me. Not exactly the hookup X Files fans were hoping for, but at least we now know that he’s not opposed to dating former costars. Baby steps?
-This is a really, really weird cover for Anne Hathaway. I’ve looked at it for 5 minutes straight and I still can’t decide what I think. The super-young look, the styling, the pose. I guess I…like it?

–Modern Family‘s Sarah Hyland says she’s been trying to look out for TV sister Ariel Winter.

-This Nickelback parody is reportedly very funny, but the idea of sitting through something that in any way resembles them is just too much to ask of me.
-Just in case you aren’t already in love with Norman Reedus like the rest of us, here’s his utterly charming GQ interview.
