Vin Diesel praised Dwayne Johnson‘s Fast8 performance; The Rock responded by thanking everyone in the cast but Vin. God, I’m living for this!

Idris Elba posted a photo of him working out in just a pair of boxers. Happy Monday!

Eddie Murphy lives quite the life. “I haven’t read a newspaper in 20 years, or read a corporate magazine, I don’t read corporate magazines or stuff, I don’t read stuff about me…I don’t have a computer, I don’t have email, I don’t have any of that shit.”

-He also says he turned down drugs from Robin Williams and John Belushi.

Justin Bieber’s new girlfriend is named Bronte Blampied. God, that’s almost as good as Belinda Blinked.

Rosario Dawson has the weirdest contract I’ve ever heard of. Marvel is so scared that she’ll reveal spoilers that all she knows every year is that she’ll be in four episodes of a Netflix show at some point — but she doesn’t know when or which shows.

-Here’s Angela Bassett delivering an impromptu Shakespearean monologue like a GD boss.

Amy Adams is pretty much the only celebrity who can pull the “aw schucks, I’m so naive” card and get away with it in my books. I blame Enchanted.

-Sweet! Feist is reuniting with Broken Social Scene on the upcoming new album.

-Speaking of good Cdn music news, there’s a new Tegan & Sara song!

-Out of all the Hip tributes I read this weekend, this one and this one got me right in the feels.

Courteney Cox ate rotting sheep on while filming Running Wild With Bear Grylls; did not enjoy it.

-Is Tom Cruise holding up the new Mission Impossible movie with his money demands?

-One of my favourite people I’ve ever interviewed is Nick Offerman, because you could throw the silliest question at that guy and he’d respond with the most thoughtful, lovely answer. I was reminded of that by this AV Club interview, whether he’s talking about fans over-simplifying Ron Swanson as a breakfast-loving, Scotch-drinking libertarian (“He was much more complex than that. He was a very outspoken feminist. He was a man of few words and people mistook that for a man of few colors”), or his sex life with Megan Mullaly (“Look, I’m 46, Megan’s 57, and we have a happy marriage. We get it on with each other and we feel very celebratory about that.”)

-This Stranger Things theory just broke my brain.

-Meanwhile, the little girl who plays Eleven shaved her head for the show to the tune of Beyonce’s “Pretty Hurts.”

-Speaking of shaving, watch Hugh Jackman shave off his Wolverine beard.

-THR published an article about how TV production is exploding in Vancouver: “If you’re a paparazzo, you should go to Vancouver because it’s where every television star is going to be running around and misbehaving.” Oh, THR. They already are. The CW casts seem to be single-handedly powering blind item sites these days.

– Netflix has a new comedy series called Friends from College and the cast is stellar: Cobie Smulders, Keegan Michael-Key, Nat Faxon and Fred Savage.

Aaron Paul is getting into the producer gam;. he’s sold a one-hour drama script called Blackmail to NBC.

-Sorry, nerds. Ian McKellan will not officiate your LOTR-themed nuptials.

-Um, why is Jason Momoa hanging with his Game of Thrones fam in Ireland?

-Speaking of GOT, that awesome shot of Jon Snow being crowded in battle last season was actually Kit Harington’s idea.

Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks are shooting a new movie together? TAKE MY MONEY NOW!

-Hmmm. Days after THR’s scathing article about Leonardo DiCaprio‘s charitable foundation, he abruptly dropped out of hosting a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton at his Hollywood Hills home. It’ll now be held at the nearby residence of Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel.

Kevin Spacey has never been happier than this moment.

-Such a good read: “Mary Jane’s Hair Color: The Code for Racist Rhetoric

-Speaking of great reads, this is a good one on the struggle for small shows to be seen in the times of peak TV.

-In case you ever doubt how powerful Barbra Streisand is, she got Apple to change the way Siri pronounces her name. “She pronounces my name wrong. With a soft S, like sand on the beach. And so what did I do? I called the head of Apple, Tim Cook.”

-The Ben-Hur remake belly-flopped at the box office this weekend. Let’s all see if that gets as much press as the Ghostbusters receipts did, shall we?

-Whoa. Sleigh Bell (love them!) are suing Demi Lovato (love her!) for unlawfully sampling their music.

Helen Mirren was shutting down sexist interview questions as far back as the ’70s.

-Lindsay Lohan will do a Russian TV interview — but only if she gets to  meet Putin. Bless her heart.

-Congrats to Chris Hardwick, who married Lydia Hearst this weekend. Everyone shits on him now because he’s so ubiquitous, but I still kind of love him.

-This is boss: Katie Couric took a $1 million pay cut to save other people’s jobs.

Will Smith Pays Tribute To Uncle Phil


Will Smith just posted a tribute to James Avery. Ahem. Did the room just get really dusty all of the sudden?

Madonna posted a photo of her 13-year-old son posing with alcohol, and mommy bloggers were all “whutttt???” But Madonna has built her whole career on not giving a shit, so she’s fine with it.

-Ruh-roh. Those eco-friendly homes Brad Pitt‘s nonprofit rebuilt in New Orleans are now rotting.

Michael Muhney was reportedly fired from The Young and the Restless for groping a costar’s breasts. You’d think Sheriff Lamb would know better!

-Did Charlie Sheen marry a porn star?

Ian McKellan may have accidentally outed a couple of his Hobbit co-stars. Oopsie!

Justin Bartha just got married. I pity the fool who had to plan that bachelor party.

-Even though it would be sweet, sweet victory Jenny McCarthy haters (i.e. – the world) if those reports about her revealing her son doesn’t actually have autism were true, she’s denying them.

Craig Robinson (aka The Office’s Darryl) just got an NBC sitcom order.

Sandra Bullock said that she and Julia Roberts have “shared custody” over George Clooney. I know it was just a joke but I’m going to go ahead and believe that, thankyouverymuch.

-I like Emily Blunt as a blonde.

Idris Elba tweeted a dirty joke this weekend and the world collectively swooned.

Cameron Diaz is on her book tour and the whole damn thing is pretty insufferable. She’s the reason I spent a lot of time swearing at my TV this morning while she touted her recipe for oatmeal with ponzu sauce and said crap like “I don’t use the word ‘diet’ because that implies deprivation.” Blech!

Shia LaBeouf is a jerk who deserves to be called out for his Twitter antics. I just wish it was by someone more credible than Lena Dunham.

-Breaking news: Demi Moore‘s young boyfriend likes young people things like the interwebs.

Justin Bieber is posting (old) photos of Selena Gomez on Instagram with mushy captions.

-I really like what Amy Adams is wearing. (Or maybe it’s just because I saw American Hustle yesterday and am grateful for any outfit that doesn’t expose her clavicle.)

-The first episode of Joseph Gordon-Levitt‘s TV show is on YouTube.

Ariana Grande and Adrian Grenier have sort of similar names so everyone assumes they’re dating, but she says she has no idea who he is.

-I appreciate the level of perfection Meryl Streep and Margo Martindale appear to be striving for with their selfies.

Ke$ha is in rehab for an eating disorder, which might have something do to with the fact her dickweed producer once called her “a f**king refrigerator.”

-This promo for “Up Close with Tig Notaro” is freaking me out, but I couldn’t turn it off.

Kellan Lutz just denied that he’s dating Miley Cyrus. I wonder if she made him do it?

The 2013 Kardashian Christmas Card Has Landed!

The 2013 Kardashian family Christmas card, photographed by David LaChapelle.

-The annual horror that is the Kardashian family Christmas card has landed, and this one is even more batshit than usual. Missing from the photo are Scott Disick, Rob Kardashian, Kanye West, Baby North and Lamar Odom. Not missing are a bunch of weird Easter eggs/hidden clues.

Amy Adams is all kinds of pretty on the cover of Vanity Fair.

-Good on Maria Bello, who came out in an essay she wrote for the New York Times this weekend. (The Hollywood Reporter identifies the woman she’s talking about as new media executive Clare Munn.) Bello also revealed that she nearly died this summer.

Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellan celebrated Thanksgiving together because the universe is wonderful.

Joe Jonasfeature in New York Magazine is a pretty terrifying look into the Disney machine. It’s also pretty dishy. He implies he lost his virginity to Ashley Greene, and adds “The first time I smoked weed was with Demi and Miley. I must have been 17 or 18. They kept saying, Try it! Try it!”

-Speaking of Demi Lovato, she’s also opening up about her troubled past in the new issue of Nylon.

-A new clip from Inside Llewyn Davis is out and looks great (despite the presence of Justin Timberlake. Adam Driver is making up for it.).

-The Paul Walker stuff continues to be incredibly sad. His father released a teary statement, celebrities continue to express their grief on Twitter, EW compiled a great retrospective of his off-camera charity efforts, his Running Scared director penned a Facebook tribute, Jordana Brewster called him “an enormous presence” in her life, and the producers of his upcoming movie The Hours said they’re sticking with plans to release it this month. Also, his Fast and the Furious costar Tyrese Gibson visited the crash site and broke down in tears, which is sad but there’s also an element of like, um, what are you doing?

-Man, it has been way too long since I’ve seen photos of Scott Speedman. So long, in fact, that I’m going to overlook the weird hair thing he’s got going on.

-Oh dear. What’s up with Linda Evangelista’s face?

The first photos from the set of Fifty Shades of Grey have surfaced. Jamie Dornan is looking predictably fine.

-Another very, very NSFW clip from Lars von Trier‘s Nymphomaniac has landed, this one featuring Charlotte Gainsbourg and Jamie Bell. What are you doing with that whip, Billy Elliot?!

Lindsay Lohan is reportedly suing over her likeness being used in Grand Theft Auto V.

Will Ferrell co-anchored an actual newscast in North Dakota this weekend as Ron Burgundy.

This video about ‘shipping unlikely fictional couples is kind of perfect.

John Noble returns to Sleepy Hollow tonight. And Victor Garber has just been cast as Crane’s father. Spy Daddy!

-Speaking of good TV, I’m glad everyone’s on the Josh Charles train for this season of The Good Wife. I’ve been a proud ticket holder since Sports Night.

-This news comes from the National Enquirer so take it with a grain of salt, but I hope this story about Miley Cyrus buying dinner for a couple she disturbed at a New York restaurant is true. She could use some good press.

-Speaking of Miley, she’ll be featured on Barbara Walters annual, increasingly irrelevant Most Fascinating People special, along with Kimye and Jennifer Lawrence.

Kate Moss is doing Playboy again, celebrating the mag’s 60th anniversary with a retro cover.

Taystee and Crazy Eyes from Orange is the New Black made a music video!

-Have Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom swapped partners with their best couple friends? (I call that “The Shania Twain.”)

-Here’s a new trailer for Tracks, starring Mia Wasikowska (who got rave reviews for her performance at TIFF). It looks great, but using M83‘s “Outro” is a bit like cheating, no?
