-People is reporting that Angelina Jolie has agreed to Brad Pitt‘s request to have their custody document sealed — but slammed him in her lawyer’s court filing, saying he only wants them sealed because he’s “terrified that the public will learn the truth.” So either there’s something explosively bad in those docs, or she’s really, really good at this. I’m guessing a little bit of both…

January Jones talked about raising a child as a single mother. “He doesn’t have a male person saying ‘don’t cry’ or ‘you throw like a girl.’ All those shitty things that dads accidentally do.” Jeez, what kind of dads is she hanging out with?

-The more “sources” try to convince us that Jennifer Lopez and Drake are “the real deal,” the more I side-eye it.

Woody Harrelson is reportedly in talks to play Han Solo’s mentor in an upcoming Star Wars prequel. I’m only interested if he approaches mentoring like he did in Edge of Seventeen.

Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner made it Instagram official this week.

-It’s Day 4 since the New Year’s fiasco and Mariah Carey and the producers are still fighting over who screwed up. Meanwhile, she says “It’s not going to stop me from doing a live event in the future.” Seeing as she reportedly scored $1M to sing two songs in Toronto a few weeks ago, I don’t blame her.

-Passengers just secured an unusual last-minute China release, so maybe it won’t be a total box office wash after all. Damn.

-Like everyone else, Andrew Garfield gets high before going to Disneyland.

Michael Keaton is brutally honest about why he refused to do Batman Forever: “Not like I’m above it or I’m an artist, but maybe I’m enough of an artist to go I just don’t think I can do this without blowing my brains out.”

-Sometimes I wonder if celebrities know we can all see which posts they like on Twitter and Instagram. I hope they never figure it out.

-Shut up, Casey Affleck. You shouldn’t be “turning the tables” on critics, you should be kissing their asses for gushing about your acting instead of writing about what they *should* be talking about.

-Is Drew Barrymore‘s new Netflix show about … cannibals?

-I spent a lot of time staring at this headline and I’m still not sure how I feel: “James Van Der Beek will play Diplo in Viceland’s first scripted comedy.”

Diego Luna remains the best.

Johnny Depp remains the worst.

-Grab the tissues. HBO just dropped a trailer for the Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds doc, which the network will premiere Jan 7.

Are Drake and Taylor Swift Dating?

-Wayment. Are Drake and Taylor Swift really dating? Or did she just dare to talk to a man in public and then the inevitable rumours started?

-Now that Mariah Carey‘s engagement may be off, E! is reportedly wondering what do to with her upcoming reality show. Maybe they’ll just focus on her rumoured new (gasp!) lover (gasp!).

-Wait, this is what Charlize Theron looks like after gaining 30 lbs for a role? Kill me now.

Kanye West made a 5-minute birthday video for Kim Kardashian using old family video footage and showed it at his concert. Logically, I realize that this is very sweet but in reality showing the world home videos of my awkward pre-teen years would be my worst nightmare.

-On a new podcastMel Gibson said it’s “annoying” when people bring up his anti-semitic comments because they’re a “thing in the past.” Then my friend Barry interviewed him and things got even more awkward. “I made the necessary apologies at the time. People can either accept them or they don’t have to. But I’ve done my part…That was, like, 10 years ago. It’s old, Barry, it’s so old. I’ve moved on, and I wish everyone else would.”

-Should Leonardo DiCaprio give back his $25M Wolf of Wall Street salary if the money was from a “corrupt” source?  I haven’t even finished this article but I’m gonna go ahead and say yes.

-Deadpool 2 has already found a new director in John Wick’s David Leitch. Good luck going from Keanu to Ryan, buddy.

Amy Schumer is defending her version of Beyonce’s ‘Formation’ video by saying “it was NEVER a parody“. Well, that’s one way to go, I guess. The wrong way, but still.

Daisy Ridley talked about dealing with those accusations that The Force Awakens’ Rey is a “Mary Sue” character. That criticism doesn’t make sense to me because that’s not what being a Mary Sue even means.  Instead of cloaking it in a canon term, haters should just have been upfront about what they didn’t like about Rey: she had lady parts.

Stanley Tucci is trying to get you to vote with cute metaphors.

-I don’t watch Pretty Little Liars but this is actually kinda cute: to mark the end of their show, the cast got matching “shhh!” finger tattoos with the first initial of their character.

January Jones is down for a threesome with Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes. Welcome to the rest of humanity, January!

-The Walking Dead’s Steven Yeun and Michael Cudlitz were “hired” by Conan.

Chris Hemsworth gives good apology. No “I’m sorry if you were offended” BS here. Good on him.

Leah Remini promises her new A&E show will tackle Scientology abuse, saying,”For too long, this multi-billion-dollar organization bullied victims and journalists to prevent the truth being told.”

-Holy shit, both Joan Jett and Bette Midler were mentors on The Voice this week? Do I need to start watching The Voice?!

Stephen Colbert and Run the Jewels created a new Halloween song, and it’s an instant holiday classic.

-The Flash’s Tom Cavanagh, Once Upon a Time’s Josh Dallas and  Arrow’s Emily Bett Rickards star in Sidekick star in a new short film called Sidekick that kinda gutted me.

-Hooo boy. According to T-PainRobert Pattinson and FKA Twigs are engaged (though he now claims it was an April Fool’s joke). A ton of media outlets ran with the story. Cue the tears and rending of garments until an official denial lands…

-I love how happy and fresh Lupita Nyong’o looks in Harper’s Bazaar UK.

-Speaking of good covers, Hailee Steinfeld is lovely on the latest Flare (where she’s sporting an Apple Watch).

-This is brilliance wrapped in perfection and kissed by wonderful: “If Idris Elba Were Your Boyfriend.

Johnny Depp and Ryan Adams are maybe sleeping with a pair of sisters, so that’s lovely.

-The music composer on Kimmy Schmidt talks about “Peeno Noir,” which has been stuck in my head on a loop for a week. (“You’re a star, listen to Tom Berenger, Peeeeennnnnooooooo Noirrrrrr!”)

-Wait, celebrities get paid to give commencement speeches?!? Matthew McConaughey will make $135,000 for a speech at University of Houston (he’s giving it to charity, though).

January Jones is reportedly dating her Last Man on Earth costar Will Forte. I still haven’t watched that show yet, but seeing how every TV critic I follow has totally turned against it in the last few weeks, I don’t think I’m missing much.

-I tend to hate April Fool’s jokes, but Funny or Die’s “Dips” app (a platform that gives users exactly 1.5 seconds to make a video), was pretty funny. Predictably, Jennifer Lawrence’s video was the best. Britney Spears and Billy Zane deserve shout-outs too.

-I was really hoping the news that Stephen Amell was just cast in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 was a joke. He can do better, no? Apparently a bunch of actors auditioned last weekend but it was his chemistry test with Megan Fox that got him the role. Not surprising, he has chemistry with everyone — except, you know, the actress he’s supposed to.

-Now this is an Amell appearance I’d actually want to see: he tweeted that he wants to throw the first pitch at a Toronto Blue Jays game this summer, and the Jays are in.

Adam Scott geeking out over getting tweeted at by Mark Hamill during last night’s The Flash is so cute.

-Speaking of The Flash, the promo that aired after last night’s episode totally ended up spoiling Arrow. (Look at Oliver’s costume. Come on, guys.)

-I’m going to miss Mad Men, but I’m REALLY going to miss Vincent Kartheiser giving bonkers interviews about Mad Men.

-Sometimes I think Patton Oswalt has too much time on his hands.

David Duchovny talked about The X Files’ return on Letterman last night, and confirmed the Cigarette-Smoking Man and Skinner are coming back.

-This is sad: Avril Lavigne says she has lyme disease and it left her bed-ridden for five months.

-God bless the Fug Girls for screencapping The Good Wife’s sexy emails from Will and tearing them apart. Because I spent a lot of the last episode pausing my TV and yelling “oh hells no!”

-I didn’t love how The Walking Dead wrapped up their season, but Nathan Fillion’s love letter to the show is full of geeky goodness.

-It’s a little inside baseball, but the CAA vs UTA thing that’s going down in Hollywood this week fascinates me.

Major Lazer is doing a cartoon series?! When I told my brother this he responded: “Everyone has to throw their shirts in the air at the end of each episode! (But they just generally land in your living room so you can easily retrieve themafterward.)” Ha!

-Of course Harvey Weinstein‘s team is trashing his alleged victim. Of course they are.

-The new Orphan Black trailer is *intense*.

Ethan Hawke and Jimmy Fallon channelled Bob Dylan to sing lullabies last night.

-Happy Endings creator David Caspe confirmed that the countdown clock was just a long-gestating April Fool’s joke perpetrated by the person running @happywrites, but he’s not totally ruling out a reunion.

Jack Black and James Marsden reunite for a high school reunion in the new trailer for The D Train.

Zach Galifianakis and Kristen Wiig make terrible bank robbers in the new trailer for Masterminds.
